thought I’d share some stories about how we go about it. Now I got a girlfriend who joins me in boosting nudism along with the lifestyle.
It seems some areas like Boulder Colorado are going backward instead of forward and this disturbs me as it could start a trend in other cities as these things generally do. I’m 300 miles away on the different side of the state, perhaps happily, but I expect a movement will grow to reverse these laws and to educate people regarding the real nature of straightforward social nudism. We as a community must encourage a better image of nudity and the nudist lifestyle.
Only for example, here’s that which we’re doing. I began a nudist group here in Colorado called the Grand Junction Naturists,(www.gjnaturists.com) and we do things like we hosted a World Naked Gardening Day at our house this year and http://nudeace.com encouraged the media to cover the event if they consented to present it in a positive light. We made the front page of the local newspaper and were on TV 4 times and all of it was very favorable. Next year we plan on hosting it again and again inviting the media to cover it, plus we aspire to begin some safe marketing to grow our group and provide free information for people who need to learn about our lifestyle. Our website has an adequate quantity of informative content on it already and we intend to add more including a printable version so they can share it with others in a printed form.
This year my GF and I decided we no longer cared who understands we’re nudists, including her company and fellow co-workers, together with family, and guess what? We have had practically no negative reactions. Some were a little shocked and said they could never do that, but most were curious about why we do it which opens up to the door for all of us to be ambassadors for the lifestyle and to make an effort to support them to get over their negative body issues.
And it’s working, slowly, a little at a time, but we are having an effect. Here’s some examples. One buddy of ours is very hefty set and was very self conscious of her body and said she could never go nude around others. Well over the course of perhaps 8 months I gave her reasons why she shouldn’t be embarrassed about her body and just slowly let her know about the nudist worth and way of life. Finally one day she went to a private commercial hot springs with us and surprised us all by dropping her robe with nothing on. Since then she’s far more comfy being naked around others and in talking about it.
