Becoming A Nudist

American writer Mark Haskell Smith was really skeptical about the ideal of nudism before he made up his mind to try it out. He was pretty interested in trying something new and this is what led him to the Desert Sun Resort in Palm Springs, California. While preparing for the first naked outing, he was very anxious and scared. When he finally walked out of his room, he became a center of attraction, courtesy of the erection that he was experiencing.
Later, he travelled to the various nudist resorts in Europe. His next stop was Cap d'Agde, which is situated in southern France. This is one place where you could find everything as you would in any other town, except for the fact that you'd find nudists everywhere. The experience of going grocery shopping and having coffee in the morning absolutely naked is something he will always cherish.

During his quest as a nudist traveler, he also had the amazing opportunity of hiking through the Austrian Alps for a week along with 19 other naturists from various parts of Europe. As a matter of fact, nudist hiking is regarded as one of the most popular adventure sports among people of this community. In various parts of Europe and the Caribbean, you can go for such trips at a very nominal cost.
However, Mr. Smith did confess that he did reach for some clothes when the cold became unbearable. Nevertheless, some of the regular hikers with him paid no heed to the cold winds and enjoyed the experience. According to him, this is one of those activities that you'd have to experience at least once in a lifetime and words wouldn't be enough to describe how amazing it feels when chilly winds tease every part of your body.

Despite becoming more relaxed and comfortable with being naked in public, Haskell Smith admits that he had always been nervous while baring it all before others as there is a constant fear of being judged by others. Nonetheless, it is worth mentioning that nudists believe in the principles of oneness and do not discriminate on subjective grounds.

“Nudists really look like everyone else so I think the idea of accepting your body and other people's bodies is really healthy. Our society needs all kinds of tolerance and this is a good place to start,” he said. During his year as a nudist, he met nudists from all walks of life and found a strong sense of community despite there being diversity.
