Everyone looks starkly different naked.
We may all have the same body parts, but our individual bodies say a lot about us. Grace met people with cancer scars, saggy skin, tattoos. It was encouraging to see that instead of hiding anything that may be considered a flaw, the nudists Grace met displayed their bodies proudly. Nudism is not only about being your self, but also accepting others as they are.
Nudists are surprisingly friendly—and happy.
Perhaps it’s the freedom of not having to conform to society’s rules and cover up, but nudists are carefree and fun. They’re also super sociable. As a newbie, many folks introduced themselves to me and were quick to invite me over to their cabins for margaritas.
You can do almost anything naked—and be comfortable!
Nudist etiquette dictates that you always use a towel to sit on. But aside from that tiny detail, it seems that you can plant your booty anywhere you want. Nudists drive around in golf carts, scarf down burgers in communal cafeterias and even play tennis in the buff (save for a sweatband and sneakers!).
There’s nothing sexual about social nudism.
If you’re not ready to take it all off in public, you can start by being naked at home. Trust me, all those hang-ups you may have will soon disappear the more accustomed you become to the sight of your own body.
