I find that I am even now in a similarly vulnerable position as I write publicly about some of the things that I have kept hidden for so long from everyone, from my parents, from my friends, from my own wife, from the world in general and even from myself. But I also find that without exposing this vulnerability I am unable to move on.
[S]ome people are unnaturally and inexplicably freaked out by certain sights that your nudity can provide, so be sure to follow this guide in a location you deem secure. Also, I suggest you read this guide fully before following it step by step.
Erections do happen in nudist settings, but we nudists have found ways to hide them efficiently - from wearing a towel, lying on our belly, jumping into the pool or the sea, taking a cold shower, going to the loo, or simply withdrawing from a social setting under any excuse.
If this is your first time naked outside the house (or at all, in which case kudos to you), the quality of air, the breeze, and the feeling of the sun against your skin (particularly in regions we're told should always be covered) may surprise you a bit. Don't let these sensations throw you off. Enjoy them; embrace them; they're one of the things why nudism is so fabulous!
Everything I said in the previous posts I mentioned in the context of reaching the goals one wants achieve. There are, however, four essential things which one simply has to be able to do naked, or else they may endanger their - and even somebody else's - life.
The most difficult step for some might be that first time of simply being naked for seemingly no reason. I can relate to the feeling of being watched, laughed at, sneered at, from every tiniest crack in the window blinds, through the keyhole of the locked door, from the closed closet - and if you're doing it in a pitch black room, lying on your bed (covered or not) naked, from the side, or under your bed, or looming above you a figure staring critically at the shape of your body beneath the sheets just waiting to get you should a patch of skin show; and even though it's completely dark you think that they can see you.
In my previous post I mentioned something called the shame spectrum. This may be a misnomer, though, since I find it possible to visualise each person (in the context of social and non-social nudity) as a line on a two-dimensional plane, which shows how much they are nude in situations of varying social engagement.
Outing yourself about anything can be difficult both to you and the person you are outing yourself to. That they are close to you implies that they believe they know the most important things about you and they have accepted them as part of you. "Outing" yourself means telling them about something you deem important about you, which you either kept hidden, or didn't know about.
Which activity can be done naked in a social setting at any time, without all the negativity from the "textillians"?
