Nude Novice Notes: FAQs

Some Frequently Asked Questions by those beginning their naturist/nudist journey:

I'm afraid if I'm publicly naked I'll get an erection. How can I overcome this?

This is a common fear that is typically just that: a fear that is not realized. Being socially naked around others is just like a prolonged visit to the locker room of your local gym. One basic rule to remember: don't gawk or stare. Focus on the face of the men you're interacting with. If you do find yourself beginning to become aroused, take a deep breath and relax. This has happened more than once to the overwhelming majority of us at one time or another. It's no big deal. It's a natural reponse.

What do I need to take with me when I go to a nudist event?

Take a small (hand) towel with you to place down before sitting. While you are welcome to lounge bare-assed on your own furniture, it's not polite to sit nude on the possessions of others.

My penis is quite small/unusually large. Should I worry that others may stare or ridicule?

Not at all! It would be rude and impolite-just as in a clothing setting-for someone to stare or comment on any part of your visible features. Trust, as nudist men, we've seen it all. Everyone is different and unique and penises come in all sizes, shapes and colors.

I don't have a six-pack set of abs and I'm overweight/skinny. In fact, I think I look ugly naked. What if I'm the least in-shape guy around?

Once again, relax. All of us have physical imperfections and we are all aware of our own shortcomings. Men at a naturist/nudist social gathering represent the spectrum of life we encounter every day when clothed. Don't stress who you are. Our unity is in our collective nudity. It's who you are inside, not outside, that truly matters.

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

I live in Michigan. I've been wanting to visit a nude beach for years. when I look on the internet I find that only two are listed. Is there a complete list of nude beaches in the United States?

Why would you be afraid of getting an erection? It's a natural thing that can happen when you see a naked person that you are attracted to. I wouldn't "gawk," but there is nothing wrong with looking and getting an erection.
