So young that I can’t remember. My maternal grandparents were practical and frugal, and that set the disposition towards clothing. Do not get your clothes dirty. “If http://nudeace.com are going to play in the mud, take your clothes away.”
As a child, I had a vitamin D insufficiency, and there were two options, cod liver oil (yuk) and more sun. Since sunshine was free and my parents didn’t have to force me to take it, playing bare was the solution.
Being raised in the rural Lower Mainland of BC, most of it was rural then, exploring (hiking) with your playmates (boys and girls) was the common action (no sports fields), if you got too warm, you went skinny-dipping in the following creek, no big deal.
As a kid I didn’t have a bathing suit or a tuxedo. “Why purchase something which you’ll barely ever use?” Visiting the beach was a special occasion, perhaps two times annually, and when we did, it absolutely was to one end of the seashore. Mother had a bathing suit (the only one in the family). Father went in the water in his underwear. Granny brought another house dress to wear in the water. Grandpa, my brother and myself went in the water bare but dressed on the beach.
Would you believe that my family was very religious at this time? They were, but “modest apparel” meant do not flaunt your wealth, not hide what God created, your body. When I was a teenager/young adult there were lots of free nudist family photos in the Lower Mainland that we would go to and party and skinny dip, but many of them have become regional parks now. My first wife did not have a problem with nudity, she would strip anytime and anywhere. I was too conservative.

Click to viewWhen I was dating my second wife, Germaine, I in encouraged her to Wreck Beach. The answer was “I’ll go, but I’m wearing a bathing suit.” While chasing one of my sons, she fell out of her top, and away it came. About 10 minutes after, “What the hell.” and off came the rest. The following year the climb/hike became a problem for Germaine, so we looked for a nudist club. We located and joined the old Sunny Trails Club in Surrey, and have been part of organized nudism ever since.
We are probably not true Nudists/ Naturists because we truly believe that nakedness is natural and not sexual. They really don’t, or there won’t be so many rules to show that it isn’t. Don’t do this or that, or don’t wear this or that, because it might seem to be sexual. More on this at an other time.
