Nude by Nature: Living naturally without clothes

Nude by Nature: Living naturally without clothes

My family and my very close friends well know my decades-long relationship to clothes—I am not a comfortable carrier of textiles. The moment my feet enter my door, the clothes disappear. I am comfortable in my skin, wrinkles, imperfections and all.

During one lesson I told my students I wouldn’t be around for a few days as I was going to a naturist resort and then to an island to spend the day on the beach with a naturist group. “What is a naturist?” I explained it is someone who prefers living without wearing clothes.

The students were fascinated.

“What do you do?”

“Exactly what other people do, except we do not wear clothes.”
