Guest Nudist Website By: Jessica Marie
First-Time Naturist - If you requested me to join a nudist club a year ago, I would happen to be out the door faster than you'd have even begun to take your clothes away. Why? Because I've been extremely self conscious my whole life. Beginning in middle school, I 'd consistently tried to fit in.
I joined cheerleading, the town dancing group, gymnastics, and the school band. But even after all of these attempts at being a part of something, I was always the odd man out. I always saw myself as a little too chubby, a little too clumsy, a little less flexible, and much less organized as everyone else as I approached my teenager years.
In reality, it wasn't on the list at all. In the end, I was seventeen, barely five-feet tall, and (gasp) a size A cup.
Even now, after college, not much has changed. And then I met someone whom I 'll refer to as Bryan.
First Nudist FKK Gathering
I first met Bryan through a web site, and when we eventually decided to meet in person, it was no secret to me that he was absolutely comfortable being unclothed and not a first-time naturist like me. After a month approximately of getting to understand him, he asked me if I needed to head to a nudist event held by FKK at Juniper Woods. Since it was FKK coordinating the occasion, I learned that young people would be attending. I had zero idea what I was getting myself into.
A week passed and all the while, Bryan and I were hyping up how trendy the occasion would be. I packed my stuff, he picked me up from my house, and we made our way to the Catskills. The first half of the car ride were amazing as we sang and I saw the lovely countryside pass by the window. And then we passed a sign for the Rocking Horse Ranch, where we'd school camping trips when I was younger.
I tried envisioning a camping trip with all the kids I went to school with getting nude, and all I could think of was how judgmental they'd be. I freaked out. I began hyperventilating. I could not believe I was really going to get nude in front of people I did not know. How many would be there? Should I just wear short pants? What about my little boobs? I should definitely wear my hair down in front of them. Oh, and Iwill need to suck in my belly. Bryan talked me out of one anxiety attack after another. I soon learned I 'd nothing to be worried about.
We eventually pulled up to some big gate with a sign in front with buzzer. Bryan talked into a box saying we were here for the FKK event. I sat there unable to talk or go. The gates started to move after some time, and soon before our automobile was a middle aged girl, totally naked, sitting in a golf cart. I believed it was funny. I hadn't seen too many naked people out in the open like that before.
After all, if I only sat at our campsite completely clothed, I 'd, yet again, be the odd-person out.
It was then I realized when I did not strip down within the next five minutes, I was probably not going to do it at all. So, when the tent was eventually up, I went inside and got end-freakin'-nude. It was a strange feeling being fully naked outside. It wasn't really so awful, I thought. But the real test of my new found courage would be facing all of these total strangers.
When Bryan was done getting nude, we walked down to a tented area where the nudies were body painting. Bryan introduced me to a couple of them and told them I was a first-time naturist and that it was my very first time at a FKK (or any) naturist occasion. And before I knew it, I 'd a group of people coming over to meet me.
Everyone was exceptionally friendly, and although I was still nervous, I began to feel more comfortable. They weren't like the people who I went to school with who I understood would have been eyeing me up and down. Instead, my new friends were giving me comforting grins and waves. I looked around the little group of people; they were all different sizes and shapes and they were so comfortable in their own skin. I understood at that moment the feelings they had were what I wanted.
It was in that instant when I finally let all of my guards down and declared to the world, I'm Jessica!
The weekend was likely among the finest of my life. I got body painted, went to a bonfire, danced, went swimming and hot-tubbing. I was slowly but surely learning to love everything about myself, even my small breasts and love handles.
In doing so, in learning to accept who I 'm on the outside, I can completely focus and love my entire individual, both inside and out. And this change happened with the help of everyone there. I know if everyone was not so unbelievably pleasant and welcoming and totally and utterly non-critical, I 'd have never kept my clothes off, and I wouldn't have believed everything that I 'd experienced.
My first nudie experience was only a couple months ago, and ever since then, I've been going to every naturist occasion that I can. Through Naturist Portal, I 've made incredible friends, and the old insecure Jessica is slowly becoming only a shadow of my past.
