I was inspired by a recent article I read that asked this question and gave a response. I’ve been a home nudist and naturist since 2009 when I started college. I’ve always enjoyed sleeping naked even as a kid and that began to bloom into being naked always in my dorm room and when I had to go to the community showers.
As the years have went by I have grown even more in my naturist/nudist practice. This all started because I have never enjoyed having clothes on. For as long as I can remember I have been taking my clothes off and my mom would try to put them back on but I’d run away.
For me clothing is not comfortable. It always pinches me or gets bunched up and made me very uncomfortable. I’d say have moved from being a home nudist to being a naturist because I am far more environmentally conscious than I was before. Also I’ve learned that clothing really isn’t healthy for your body as it can cut off circulation and also soaks up bacteria from your sweat which can cause sores.
Letting my skin breath and do what it was designed to do naturally is important because I want to be healthy and feel good. Another benefit of being a naturist is the body confidence I have gained.
I was teased and bulled because of my body all through grade school and I hated that. I never felt comfortable letting anyone see my body outside of my doctor and my parents. Naturism has shown me that there is nothing to be ashamed of in how my body looks. God didn’t create his master piece to be ashamed of his work or to be covered up with textiles.
God created man and woman in his image and he saw that the man and woman he created was perfect. Our scars and such tell a story and an amazing testimony to how we are wonderfully made. This body that was designed to heal itself and protect us is nothing short of a marvel.
Naturism has shown me that I am perfect the way I was designed by God and that I should not be ashamed of what I look like or who I am. The naturist community is the kindest and most loving and accepting community I have ever been a part of. I’m a gay Christian man and I have never felt accepted for who I am both physically or who I am as a person. This community has given me something I have never experienced before.
So this in totality is “Why Naturism?” and why I will always be a part of and promote this amazing community and life.
