For most a little open nudity at home doesn’t sound like a big deal. Everyone engages a little personal nudity during the course of day and doors are not always locked in a typical home. But what if remaining naked throughout the day was the plan? Granted, in most homes folks are usually dress by mid-morning. At the Trevor family lake cabin they take exception to this general rule.
If your parents are life-long hippies and you live in the Napa Valley, you may have grown up with very liberal attitudes toward nudity in general. Families of this type seem not to own swimsuits. Fourteen year old Elizabeth explains, “Why would I want to wear to wet clothes?” Indeed.
Atlanta offers a favorable outdoor climate for nude recreation from May through September, and with abundant vegetation, most backyards offer the right amount of discretionary privacy to go ahead and water the garden nude (or sunbath, skinny dip in the pool, etc.). In suburban Atlanta it’s almost trendy to “be one of those families.” (“Living Nude: Three Families”) Ed.

When Dad’s A Nudist
It’s not always easy becoming a nudist around the family. Daughters seem to handle their mothers being topless or nude but when dad joins in it can stir up a little emotional embarrassment (and some uneasy staring). At a minimum, it’s a very interesting topic: “When my dad took his suit off and it was just out there I shrieked. But after a few minutes it was just boring.” The fact is, most families adjust rapidly after the initial shock subsides.
Some couples enjoy taking their nudist habits to sparsely inhabited public beaches. “It adds to the experience” said one North Carolina couple. “If somebody passes by, usually another couple having a beach walk, they just wave. One couple gave us a thumbs-up.” Worst-case scenario? Typically not trouble with the authorities, but some pleasurable embarrassment isn’t out of the question. “We actually get little kick out of it.”
Adult Nudist Resorts
“Be sure to bring your sense of humor,” warns one habitue of the adult nudist resort scene. “You have to be prepared to see some pretty weird behavior.” The truth is most adult nudist resorts offer highly variable experiences with a lot depending on the general demeanor of your fellow vacationers. “Some come in groups that make it an annual trek. They’re either really fun, outgoing people or stick just to themselves. Some are definitely cutting a little too loose. Don’t go to Hedo if you’re looking for sanity. There are other resorts where it’s just a nudist experience, and not a swinger experience

Comfortable In Their Own Skin
We’ve very deliberately included near-nudity as well as full nudity in the scheme of both Nudist House and Candid Nudity. It gives us such a broaded horizon for appreciating our expanded view of Body Freedom. Being comfortable in one’s underwear involves nearly the same ease and lack of modesty (if not more in some cases) that permits people to practice nudism, whether at home or in nudist environments. So, that explains the partial nudity above. In some minds this is even more provocative of the senses than a simple nude.
Hanging Out Naked With Your Mate
One of our first pictorials was labeled “Sunday Mornings,” which fit the presented imagery of couples lying around naked during a lazy weekend. It still fits. Those times when couples are alone and can just read papers and magazines in bed (or of course nowadays that means iPads and Kindles) are pleasant examples of “living nude.”
Having an opposite sex roommate who walks around naked reminds me of the Harrad Experiment (often mentioned here), published back when coed dorms were just getting started. The idea of being assigned a girl for a roommate was almost too much to handle. When it happens for real there’s much less motivation to get out of the house.
