First Time Report at La Pines.

June 2001.

This is actually two "First Time Reports." One from me, Mushroom, and one from Spiderwoman (see report below).

Mushroom's account of his first experience with social nudity:

Spiderwoman and I are very comfortable being naked together. To put it simply, we just got use to it and enjoy being naked. So for a few years we were home nudist, without ever realizing that is what it is called. One time I asked her if she would ever consider trying a nude beach and she said she might. That was all that was said, and neither one of us thought about it again for a long time.

Then I began surfing the web. On a whim I searched for "nudism." With this I came across my first nudist/naturist web site, which led to many others. I enjoyed reading, especially first time accounts, and looking at the pictures, but the more I read the more appealing it became. The talk of freedom and self-acceptance intrigued me. The more I read the more I got interested in the life style. I began to be naked more at home. I was enjoying the thought of being naked and being naked in a social setting. But what would Spiderwoman think. This was something I really wanted to share with her.

I told her I was surfing the web and had discovered some nudist sites. I showed her a couple of sites, with pictures and she seemed to like it. She agreed that we were already nudist at home. I asked about a social setting and she seemed intrigued too. We were planning to go to California in the summer. I asked if when there she might like to try a nude beach. She said yes.

Spiderwoman and I really do not like going to beaches. I had bought a nude recreation guide and discovered a nude resort, Lupin, near where we would be in California. I read about it on the web and it seemed like a nice place, a possible place for our first social nude experience. However, also, in that book, I discovered a nude resort here in Louisiana, La Pines. When I found out about this Louisiana nudist resort I mentioned it to Spiderwoman. I thought that it might be a good idea to try nudism out here before California. She agreed. We decided to pick a free weekend. We decided to try camping, something else we wanted to experience together. We bought a tent, got some folding chairs and some other supplies and we made plans to go to La Pines for a weekend.

As the weekend approached we continued to talk about it. Mainly we talked about that first moment when we would be naked with others. Would we do it? (We knew we would, but there is always that doubt.) Would we be self-conscience? Would we like it? One thing we knew, we wanted to try it. Social nudism was something new to the both us, and something we wanted to share together. So June 29 through July 1, 2001, was going to be our first social nude experience. We waited with anticipation.

We had all our camping gear and that was a big focus. We talked about camping for the first time together, but we both knew why we were doing it. I guess the camping was something to talk about in the midst of our wondering what it would be like to be naked in front of others. Deep down we both knew that we both would do it, but I guess we still wondered. But we were really looking forward to the weekend. No matter what else happened it would be a weekend away.

There was a lot to look forward to, but most of all being naked. That thought was always there. It was the reason we were going camping. We knew we would end up naked, but how? At one time Spiderwoman suggested that we slowly get undressed as we pitched the tent. I guess we just had to wait till we got there.

The day came. We packed up the car and decided to go wearing just tee shirts and loose pants and no underwear. Why wear more, we were planning to get naked. We got there on Friday evening. We were shown an open spot near the pool were we could pitch our tent. We stayed clothed as we pitched our tent because we were not in a secluded place. We knew, without saying, that when we got naked we would not have any time alone to get use to it before we met others. As we were pitching the tent a couple came and introduced themselves. They were naked. They were welcoming and friendly. They left us to finish setting up camp. It was hot. We were both sweaty. When we finished we knew we wanted to go swimming and we knew what that meant, no clothing in the pool. We got in the tent and took our clothes off. Immediately, Spiderwoman a little ahead, we stepped out of the tent naked. We went to the pool area. An older man was in the pool and others were at the bar area. We took a shower and got in the pool and had a pleasant conversation with the man. The water felt wonderful. Others were around. We got out the pool and walked a little. We were naked and both realized how quickly we were use to it. How natural it felt. We were not self-conscience. It just felt wonderful. We had done it and we knew we were going to like it. After the swim we went to our tent and sat in our chairs and read and wrote in our journals. We were naked and enjoying it.

What follows is an excerpt from the journal entry I wrote: "One of the main things Spiderwoman and I want to do together is to live life to the fullest. That is one of reasons we are here. We want to experience the freedom of just being and in this case just being naked. Being free."

"A big part of this freedom is breaking from the taboos of the past like being naked in public. Freedom means being happy. And right now, being here with Spiderwoman, at a nudist resort, is being happy."

One of the nicer surprises was the communal shower. Spiderwoman and I were finishing a shower. Spiderwoman finished and a woman stepped under her shower and said that she needed a shower badly and began talking to us as we were drying off. It felt so natural and comfortable. Earlier I had met a professor from the college I went to and he introduced me to his wife. I was standing there naked and she and he were naked and it felt normal. It was so comfortable there. People were so friendly. It is just as Spiderwoman said, "There are no barriers. People are just people here." A major part of that is the lack of sexual tension. Growing up, I was taught that being naked was sexual and sexuality was bad. Now I know sexuality is good and being naked is just being naked. My life still goes on and it is wonderful.

What was amazing to me, beyond my expectations, was how tied into the whole person this experience was. The whole person can be seen as being physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. Our first nudist experience touched all of these. Since then we had a wonderful time at Lupin, especially walking the trails, naked of course. We have also been back to La Pines and have since becomes members. We go as often as we can. It is the best way we have found to relax. Spending one day nude is like a week's vacation.
