The Naked Blog

From child to adult, from blushing and shy to delivering seminars in front of 100's of nudists. My name is Abby Turner, I am retired but continue to council people through seminars and private sessions.

My original blog will be posted here as well as new posts because I believe the information is important and well worth the time and energy. Original posting dates may not stay the same but may reflect the date I moved the post. I've been asked not to delete my original blog, sending it to the dark, nowhere void of the internet space; that being said, I will move the information here.

Please bare with me, it will be very time consuming and emotional at times. I will also include Lisa's posts as I believe her posts were and still are very valuable and informative to common issues, topics and discussions.


Changing Your Lifestyle

I have received many emails asking “how do I start?”.
There are several ways to start experimenting, to try it out.  The first way is normally not done and can have a negative result rather than a positive reaction.
The first and most obvious way is to just jump right in.  Look on the internet for nudist resort nearest you, call for a reservation if needed and go.  Once there, do as they do.  Strip down and head to the beach, pool or whatever amenities the resort has to offer.  This takes a lot of courage and can stop someone from actually trying and enjoying the experience.
Here is what I suggest for both men and women.  Start slow.  After showering/bathing take your time before getting dressed.  Don’t rush.  Dry off, hang up your towel, do your hair, makeup, shave, brush your teeth and then go pick out your clothes to put on.  You should still be naked at this time.  No, not even the towel should be wrapped around you… remember, I said ‘hang up your towel’.
Still doing good?  Or is it time to put clothes on?  Do as much as you can until you are use to the feeling and knowing you are walking around naked.  Then increase your activity before getting dressed.  Staying to the bedroom will make for an easier adjustment.  Most people feel secure in their bedroom which will help minimize any stress or comfort issues.
Another good start for trying nudism, is sleeping naked.  You are in the security of your room, covered in blankets and you are comfortable.  Research has shown that 8 out of 10 who tried sleeping the nude for the first time, find it more comfortable than with clothes.  Think about it.  How many times have you rolled over in bed only to have to re-adjust your pj’s because they didn't roll with you? Now you have to lift this body part or that, tug on your pj’s and then settle down and get comfortable again.  Not if you aren't wearing any pj’s.  This same study showed that 9 out of 10 people sleeping in the nude fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly and feel better rested when they wake up in the morning.
So, try sleeping in the nude.  When you get up, don’t grab the bathrobe.  If you have a bathroom connected to your room or if you live alone, climb out of bed, walk to the bathroom and start the shower.  Not counting the time you are sleeping (6 – 8 hours?) look at all the time you have spent nude. Below are average times depending on if you are male/female and what you actually do for each.
Brushing your teeth: 5 minutes
Doing your hair:  10 – 30 minutes
Shaving (face): 10 minutes
Doing makeup:  10 – 15 minutes
Making the bed:  5 minutes
Picking up your room: 15 minutes
Checking cell phone messages:  5 minutes
Checking email: 10 – 15 minutes
Answering email: 15 – 30 minutes
See, you have already spent at least an hour in the nude that you normally would not have.  And it feels great right?
Having a lazy day or done working for the day? Climb in bed and read a good book.  If you are a woman, don’t let the sheet sliding down and exposing you be a worry.  Read your book.  Resist the temptation to keep pulling the covers over you as you read.  Grab that glass of water or wine as your read, but don’t grab the sheet.  Leave it, let it do it’s own thing.
As you can see, there is a slow progressing of not only being nude while you do regular activities but resist the need to pull a bathrobe closed, pull up the sheets, pull down a t-shirt.  This will help you not only be comfortable and confident about yourself but about others as well.  There is no shame in being you!
Now it’s time to try the living room.  Go sit on the couch or in your favorite chair.  Need to check the news? Watch your favorite show.  So do it…. in the nude.
Have to let the dog or cat out into the backyard?  So do it.  Open the door as you normally would if you were clothed.  Please note I did say ‘backyard’.  If your house faces a street and there is a chance someone will see you as they walk by, it’s not a good idea to stand at the doorway all exposed.   The police could be knock on your door soon if you do.
Not everyone fits into the mold of a model.  In my opinion, most female models are way to skinny, un-natural, and unrealistic.  Being a nudist helps with self-confidence, learning and social stills.
Hugs and kisses, everyone!

So I have been reading your blog and have been trying some of the things you have said to try. It's working!! Not only about being nude but my confidence. My body shape is slightly ;) bigger than the models but I have become more acceptable regarding my body; the shape and size. Knowing I am going to be nude as much as I can, I have even started to exercise to see if I can take some of the extra weight off.
thank you so much abby!

I guess you can call me a "closet nudist". I work nights and my wife works daylight. Our kids are grown and moved out. I enjoy being naked when Iam alone but get dressed shortly before my wife arrives home. She's aware I carry about the house naked and is okay with it as long as Iam clothed when she walks through the door. Tintagel

Abby, thanks for sending me the link. This is awesome. I am a nudist always at home in my house, at the beaches and resorts when allowed. If I'm at a public beach, it's a thong bikini... It's the best I can do! lol Your blog is a wealth of information, I absolutely love it. It has helped build my self confidence and my state of mind. Made me realize I am who I am and my likes and dislikes come first.
Thanks again Abby!!! H&K, Ally
