My first experience of public nudity was around twenty years ago when I attended a Five Rhythm dance workshop on the Isle of Mull. I was dancing on the beach to my own internal music in the pouring rain and it just felt right to throw my clothes off and dance naked before swimming in the sea. Being an extremely shy person I was amazed at how liberated I felt.
However it was only ten years later when I met my partner that I realised that Naturism was a way of life for some people and that there were organisations which I could join. I became a member of BN but as I didn’t live near any clubs was only Naturist in my own home and when on holiday abroad.
This changed a couple of years ago when my home town of Dunoon played host to Scotland’s first national Naturist weekend. I really enjoyed being Naturist at home and earlier this year I joined the Scottish Outdoors club on Loch Lomond. I am completely open with people about being Naturist and it is hard to imagine now living any other lifestyle.
All I need now is some more Naturist beaches to dance on!
