You Can Be A Nudist Too
IT'S AS EASY AS TAKING YOUR CLOTHES OFF.
This is a question I field a lot: "Am I too old to participate in nudism?" My answer is always "No." You're never too old or young to participate in nudism. The key word here is "participate." If you sole intent is to gawk you won't be appreciated (and we know who you are). If you're there for the sun and the liberating effects of being nude in communal settings, enjoy communicating with happy nudists, joining a volley ball match without hesitation, that sort of thing, you're always welcome. Your age is irrelevant.
Men have told me younger women don't want to see old men in the nude. That may be true for some much younger nudist women, but what other people enjoy seeing is up to them. If you're relatively fit chances are no one will think you're an eyesore. Just as your tastes discriminate, so do everyone else's, which is completely out of your control. That you might enjoy seeing young naked women and teens doesn't mean you're a pervert or have crossed whatever etiquette lines are drawn in the various nudist communities. Everyone looks. Every sees. That's the democratic aspect of nudism. You can't be selective in either direction.
There's Nothing More Beautiful Than Young Nudists
As an older nudist myself I simply observe the normal rules of social etiquette on a nude beach. I give people their space if they want it, I willingly let others into my own if they so wish. I've played nude volley ball with teenagers (See: Nudist Girls) as well as candidates for the geriatric set. I've done nude yoga with exquisitely charming naked women without a second thought. I've danced naked around a fire with nubile Eastern Europeans. It's fun.
One old acquaintance from school days bemoaned the fact (before nudism had even come up in our conversation) that he'd never sleep with a younger woman again, let alone see one naked. I mentioned that, well, we'd had our time, but there was no rule saying we couldn't meet a younger
woman down the road and have an harmless fling, providing the planets aligned properly. Anyway, I brought up nudism and said you could always see younger women naked on nudist beaches. He said, yes, but they would not want to see him there, to which I said hogwash. It had nothing to do with his right to be there, and frankly, nudism was open to all ages.
There is nothing more beautiful in the world than youthful womanhood. I consider it a blessing I can still partake of their beauty, if not always their flesh. At my age (58) I'm simply happy to share the same sunshine and cool seas with them, frolicking as they do, without much concern for anything but having a good time. As a single older gent of some means I have the freedom to do a circuit of nudist beaches every year. Some men spend their free time and money pursuing golf. What you do is up to you.
But don't let your age stop you from doing anything. Even nudism. Recently, a member's wife finally joined the club in Mexico and shared her pictures with pride: Nudist Bare Jan. She never would have believed she would be comfortable on a nudist beach, being somewhat passed what she called her "prime." She proved herself wrong. Newbie Galleries
Going Topless Takes Courage The First Time
The sensual side of nudism often heralded on this blog acknowledges the excitement one feels when participating in nudist activity. It may seem a puerile experience to the jaded uninitiated, but talking to fellow nudists confirms there is a childlike thrill in being naked in mixed company. Either you get that or you don't.
Topless women and teens have the advantage of enjoying the thrill on the more restricted beaches of Caribbean resorts, on Miami's South Beach, even around a few Las Vegas pools and of course on virtually any European beach or community pool. Even though they're wearing their bottoms, the exposed breast is a potent visual image to all men, and women comment they could just as well be nude as to have their tops off.
If you're fortunate to have a wife or girlfriend willing to take off their tops in public (See: Getting Wife To Try Nudism), you know it produces about as much excitement for you as it does your mate. When my wife reveals her bosom to the elements on a crowded topless beach, my response is immediate and debilitating--no walking around for me until things settle down. She appreciates the response and thankfully doesn't tease me about it.
The winter season in the Caribbean produces a reliable new crop of women and teens trying out this uniquely feminine freedom (pale skin is rampant before turning rosy). From Sandals to St. Barts they transition within a few seconds out of the confines of their upbringing, liberating their breasts with joy and often pride.
No, it's not technically nudism. But it's close enough for me, someone highly appreciative of this growing trend. Topless Beaches
