A Do or Don't: Visiting a Nude Beach With Your Honey

A Do or Don't: Visiting a Nude Beach With Your Honey

I am well aware that public nudity at beaches occurs, but I don't think any amount of coercion (or cosmos) could make me bare my business for all the world to see. It's not that I'm prude, I'm just private, and what's under my clothes is only for lucky lovers to see. If I shed my clothes for everyone in broad daylight, including the man I was with, well then our alone, naked time wouldn't seem as special. I guess I feel that nudity is for intimacy only — not a public affair.

So would you bare it all under the sun with your significant other? Do you think visiting a nude beach is exciting in a sexual way, or do you think it doesn't leave anything to the imagination?

I never thought I could possible go topless or nude at a beach, even if everyone else did. Heck, my clothes don't even show much cleavage, and my usual beachware is a tankini. Then last year we went to Hawaii, and we heard about a clothing optional beach near where we were staying. My husband was more interested in going than me, but I was a bit curious and went along with him. As soon as we got there, we encountered nude guys sitting nearby, and could see a few nude couples not too far off. The beach wasn't that crowded, and we found a place to spread out with only a few couples around. I asked my husband if he was going to go for it, and after a slight hesitation, his trunks came off. It wasn't until he said "your turn" that it hit me that I was probably really was going to go through with it. I knew the other nude couples weren't staring at us, but the guys were positioned where they could clearly see me. Guys seem to have a radar that tells them when women are about to take something off. While I hesitated, hubby said the longer I wait, the harder it will be, so I just took hold of my top, and lifted it off in one quick motion, revealing my breasts for the first time. I could see that the other guys had been watching as they looked away or pretended to be looking past me. My heart was racing a bit, and I was feeling a strange mixture of embarrassment, panic and exhilaration. But on the whole, I felt happy and a bit proud of my courage. We laid out for about half an hour, and I had no problem with sitting up, or applying lotion, as more people walked by or spread out nearby. I could tell hubby enjoyed seeing me semi-nude and relaxed, and that just made me feel more comfortable. The looks I got seemed no more serious or long lasting than when wearing a suit, so I just took them a bit as the same sort of compliment as looks I normally get.I've always been an bit uptight about clothes, since I have have a fairly good, full figure. After years of worrying about how revealing or not all my clothes were, and agonizing over their "appropriateness," it somehow felt more "honest" to just let my breasts hang out. No decisions about how tight or revealing a top was, or how "enhancing" it was, not that I need much pushing up. There was no top! Pure honesty, and in its own way, hanging naturally almost seemed more modest than pushed together, up, or out! At least, I tried telling myself that at least once, not that I believed myself.The next "shock" came when my husband wanted us to take a dip in the water. Well of course we would want to do that! He saw a bit of panic hit me, and he asked if I would be comfortable walking down to the water. I took a deep breadth, noticed all the other women walking around nude, and heard myself saying "sure!" But when he said, you know, you really don't want to drive back to the resort with wet bottoms on, I realized what he was really asking. By now, there were quite a few other people around. Well, in for a penny, in for a pound, I told myself. Besides, my husband had been nude from the start, so I'd just be joining him...and alot of others. So, despite all the other people now close by, I stood up, and off came the bottoms! And suddenly I found us walking hand in hand down to the water, past at least a dozen other people, without a stitch on. I couldn't believe I was really doing this. The hot sun and wonderful breeze felt absolutely wonderful, all over. As did the water. Playing around in the water was great too. On the walk back, I felt completely comfortable. I always thought that on a nude beach, guys really "reveal themselves" more than women, but many women were shaved or trimmed, so they were pretty well revealed too. I was a bit self conscious at being "fully natural," but things were really way past that. We spend more time laying out, this time fully nude, and I was surprised at how relaxed I was, with no particular attention to how I positioned myself. I guess I felt that "nude means nude," and there wasn't much point in some weird residual modesty. In retrospect, I really can't believe in how fast I made this mental transition. I guess I really started thinking about going nude from the time we first heard about this beach, and by the time we got here, I was ready to go all the way, even if I didn't admit it to myself. I'd just advise anyone still struggling with the idea to just GO FOR IT! I found it a lot easier, and a lot more fun, than I could have possibly imagined

Nudity doesn't have to always equal sex. So yes being one with nature swimming in the buff, and being air dried by a warm summer's sun and gentle sea breeze is a fantastic way to spend a summer’s afternoon. If you’re shy just do it far enough away from home so that you do not run unrepentantly into the Jones’s

Just to clarify, we both went nude. No big deal just use sunscreen.

I have gone to a nude beach on a few occasions and would go again. Its not that big a deal after all pretty much everyone has seen a naked body of both sexes. Its not a habit, but I had a good time every time I have been. I don't think I would have been attracted to my husband if he was so uptight he would not have gone to a nude beach, just an indication of other hang ups.

i have gone to a nude beach with my bf before, but i'm never going back! when i tripped and landed face down on the sandy beach, a bunch of sand got in my vagina and i had to go to the doctor and do many embarrassing things in front of him to get all the sand out. it was a crisis!

I have gone to a nude beach, (I went topless), it was just a bunch of hippies. Honestly, it's just a body, I don't think it's a big deal at all. But my fiance is too shy to ever go.

I asked my boyfriend, but he seems uncomfortable with it. It's totally understandable...I'll just go without him! ;D I mean, I don't want to go there to check people out...I just like being nude, but my boyfriend is uncomfortable showing his goods to people he doesn't know.

No way. I wouldn't be naked in public no matter what. If were the only ones on a private beach at sunset or after, maybe. I'm not comfortable in a bathing suit so nude is a definitely uncomfortable thought to me.

I would love to go to a nude beach.... with our without my lover! Its always been something that intrigued me. But I think public nudity would enhance my relationship because we love to be adventurous.

I would. It wouldn't be turn on, though, I don't think. There's really no difference between a bikini and naked for me. Not a big deal.

My fiance already gets mad when he thinks people are checking me out, so, uh, I don't think this would be a good idea for us.

I'd like to go to a nude beach, except I really don't like the beach at all :PNot because I find the thought of seeing a bunch of random naked people sexually appealing (I don't), but because it's what it'd feel more natural to me. Seriously... what's up with bathing suits? I've always found wearing clothing in the water uncomfortable, and I don't shower with clothes on, so I don't see the point in getting into a swimming pool or the sea with any kind of it on (and please don't tell me it's for hygienic reasons - water trespasses cloth and then it goes on moving in and out of people's bodies, unless you're wearing a special neoprene outfit which I doubt) Plus... it's kind of the same thing... generally swimwear it's really disfunctional (especially bikinis) an it reveals more than what it does cover, (and you pay for it! what's the point?) so... why bother? :PMy response got a little bit long, but overall, I'd like to go to a nude beach one day. I think it would actually be relieving. :)
