Shwetap,


As one who, albeit male, has been through the same sort of evolution as you are currently experiencing so I thought I'd share a few thoughts:
I went through many years of doubting whether the enjoyment of nudity was 'right' or 'perverse' behaviour.  I had years of doubt where I remained clothed for fear of giving way to an unacceptable tendency, except occasionally when alone at home and I somewhat guiltily lived naked for however long I had. Then, discovering the forerunner to this forum (The Secret Natruist Society, now defunct) I realised that there were lots of people who were completely NOT in a state of doubt.  Quite the reverse, they were entirely comfortable with their own nudity and very confident that it isn't a perversion, it's not 'naughty' but it is a simple love of not having to wear clothes, and the freedom and pleasure that brings.  Once you get over the self-doubt, the pleasure of being naked is quite addictive.


Once I had others to compare experiences with, my journey accelerated apace.  Realising that my liking of being naked in nature was shared by the intelligent and rational people that you find on this site, I was able to pass from the clandestine guilt of insecurity about my own feelings to the sunny uplands of confidence in the fact that when I want and can be naked its perfectly OK to be so.  I live in the crowded UK and so I get out in nature relatively rarely due to the need to be discreet and not risk encounters with textiles i.e. clothed people or worse, the police.  However, I am naked at home a lot and we enjoy a very secluded garden so I can be naked outdoors too - which is the best.


So my advice to you is - relax.  You are just one of many normal people who are naturists and if you enjoy it, do it. 


To the new starter, Naturism is a new kind of sensuality.  The air on your skin and the contact with the environment is sensual and most naturists as they get used to it detach their naturism from sexuality.  It's just another way of being and going about your normal daily business.  However, equally, there's nothing wrong with associating your nudity with sexual activity.  Think of it this way : When we are clothed we do the washing up, laundry and mow the lawn.  When we are naked we do the washing up, laundry and mow the lawn.  When we are clothed we engage in sexual activity when we want, when we are naked we engage in sexual activity when we want.  It's not the nudity alone that is the sexual stimulus.  Libido is in the mind and we can turn it on and off as we wish.


There are no norms or obligations.  My advice, and I think probably everyone here in the forum will agree, is to enjoy your naturism and don't feel guilty.  Don't force it on others (such as the mailman) if they don't want to see you naked but a dressing gown is perfectly acceptable to collect the mail.  But relish your naked time and do it often enough so that you experience the wonderful evanescent realisation that nudity is entirely normal for you and makes the daily business of existence that bit easier.


I would suggest that you continue to share your progression as far as you wish into naturism with us here on the forum as you have done in the last few posts.  Report your experiences and feelings and we will be able to counsel and help you along your path.


Good luck and enjoy and appreciate your naturism.

Shwetap,
One more thing:  As you get older, you shed some or all of the petty inhibitions about your body and your age.  Many older people are naturists and many only come to it in the senior years.  At 50 you have a head start!

Thanks a lot for the advice.
As I have mentioned earlier , after my son has moved out , I am all alone at home at home and I get a lot of time alone and get habituated with my new found love for nudism.

I also agree that nudity and sex are misinterpreted as one and I blame the movies for projecting and sexualizing nudity all my life, which has resulting in making me a prude until now.

Pudishness is a great place to be FROM!
Breathe deep the fresh air!

Yes! The material and the social kinds!
