Becoming Nudist at 50
« on: August 30, 2017, 10:30:12 PM »
So a few months ago my son got married and moved out with his wife to a new place . I was alone at home and one day I was googling for a Natural Ointment for my sagging skin (I am racing against time and try to hide my age even though I know its futile) .

Anyways I must have misspell or something and I got links for an organization producing natural and organic premium jams, marmalade, fruit syrups and peanut butter and a french movie called Naturellement made in 2002. As I had nothing better to do I clicked on the link and started watching this short film.

The movie is about a modest middle aged couple who travel to a vacation house in southern France, to spend some holidays with friends. When they arrive, they find that all their companions live completely according to nature; that is all are nudists. The couple adjust to the new residents eventually.

Now even though I am living alone , I still shower with door closed and walk out of the shower with tower covering myself up until one day I forgot to take towel and I realized this after I had taken the shower , I reluctantly walked out of the shower to get to my bedroom and as a reflex I covered my breasts with one hand and my privates with other (old habits die hard)as I firm footed to my room to dry off and change my clothes.

Just as I was putting on my clothes I remembered the women from the movie and I thought I should give it a try. I took a picture on me standing in front of the mirror. The next day I walked to take shower and walked back to my room with no clothes on.

Now I have started sleeping naked and I am not sure if I should be mentioning here but sometimes I also masturbate and relax before going to sleep.

Recently I have also answered the door wearing just night robe and it was the mail man who realized I was not wearing anything underneath and could not take eyes off me while I signed on receiving receipt. I stopped doing that unsure if it was ethical.

I am enjoying the freedom however I sometimes feel guilty as I am unsure if any of my behavior at this age is appropriate.

I researched on the internet about nudist forums and found few but most of them was crowed with youngsters. I found this forum and thought of joining as I could interact with people my age. I have not mentioned my location as I do not want to be tracked down.

50 years old, eh. Well, some of us here weren't born yesterday, either.

Welcome Shwetap, if you've read through even a few of the threads here you'll have gathered we're a pretty eclectic bunch, liable to wander off topic at the drop of a hat, but united in our enjoyment of being naked, and our belief there's nothing wrong in being naked. You may just be discovering this for yourself (not everyone agrees with or understands us) but if you decide to progress and and continue your exploration you will find plenty of support here.

Thanks I will definitely get to understand nudity better and I am positive that I have come to the right place.

I forgot to mention I knew of a woman named Clara who became a nudist at 50.  She lived at De Anza Springs in Jacumba, Ca.  She lived the last 35 years of her life happy and nude at the resort.  She led a women's sunrise prayer every morning there.  She was a great spokeswoman for naturism and is still remembered fondly there.  I only saw her a couple of times yet it was easy to tell she had a way about her and a great warmth in her personality.  So no not too late for you.

Welcome to the forum.   Its never too old to throw off cultural conditioning.

I'm starting to think of 50ish people as youngsters. 

Going naked in your home is a start.  Going naked outside is another big step.  So is posting nude photos on-line.  I post a photo of myself every morning on 3 or 4 sites like twitter etc.   I don't know about tracking you down but if you are local to any of our members it may be good to meet other nudists and go hiking naked with company for support.

Blessings

I think that DF was 54 when we met. She had been hiking with her top off before that nothing nudist. As you can see at my website, she has come a long way with no regrets. You are in the right place.

I suspect that you are enjoying some titillation from your experiences. Although, not clearly expressing it. That's okay. There is a little exhibitionism in everyone and that should tone down in time. Enjoy it. You are wise to seek out others.

To get a handle on things, become comfortable, learn ends and outs, I suggest trying a "The Naturist Society" gathering at a resort (that is if you are in the USA, your home doesn't look typically American construction). They are online. It is very supportive and informative. You would meet amazing nude women, who would share their stories and support you. You would best resolve to be nude the entire time. After three or four days nude, in a supportive environment, you will probably not to ever want be dressed again and your identification as who you are complete. Any guilt would be washed away.

An amazing world is there to open up to you. Naked is your nature.

Incidentally, any discomfort, or shame of your bodies changes should wash away. as well. Your appearance is lovely.

John P. I get what you are saying, but I'll go with giving the benefit of the doubt, just in case.

The subject of people exploring nudism and naturism after they get older has come up here frequently. We still have no clue or clear answer.

Appropriate, yes, approved, no! ;D
Many of us that began this new activity after we grew up (not necessarily matured) but got older, felt the same way on our 1st time outdoors naked. It was the lifetime of conditioning kicking into self preservation mode.

But welcome and join in.

I started going outdoors naked three separate times in my life. Grade school, in my early 30ís and then again at 53. So my trek was one of fits and starts till I finally made it here. I kept at so I must have really enjoyed it.

Another thing Jbee didnít mention that I have noticed over time is that the tendency to judge or evaluate people by their appearance begins to disappear. You will be unable to tell anything about people from that. You will have to get to know them. Looks, clothes and other gadgets are not present to gauge any thing.

And that is a good thing.

I would like to echo the comforting welcomes alread posted and add that if tyou are UK based you might like to look at the British Naturism and Naturist Corner web sites which contains a great deal of useful reference material.
Unfortunately for you the British Naturism forum is only open to members and I'm not sure that the cost of joining would be worthwhile for you at this stage.
