“I am an ex-nudist man. I wasn’t raised by nudists, I became one because at some point in my life, I became convinced that I wanted to become one and it began to almost consume me with the desire to be a nudist.
If you replace the word nudist in my sentence by alcoholic, you’ll start to understand what I mean. An alcoholic has a problem with alcohol compared to a casual drinker because of his excess. I had a problem with nudism because of why I was doing it, for I rarely practiced nudism.
Nudism and naturism are a way of life. Nudists believe for various reasons that they can live a better life through social nudity. For some, its about body acceptance. For others, it’s about social equality. For naturists, it’s about getting closer to nature.
Regardless of their motivations, true nudists do not get nude for sexual reasons. In many naturist activities, swingers now infiltrate their activities but let’s ignore them for the current discussion for I am not a swinger.”
