Locked in a Textile World

Do you hate bathing suits?  I’m visiting with family for a few days.  The weather is warm and the temps are high.  They have a pool, but I’m not too enthused about using it.  They are not nudists and I have to wear a bathing suit.  I hate being locked in a textile world.

I thought about this on the thirteen hour drive here.

The vast majority of people are locked in a textile world, locked in a prison of uncomfortable clothes.  It’s sad!

My wife and I recently came back from a nudist vacation.  Although it didn’t work out the way we planned, it was still wonderful.  To be naked in nature and around others who understand that nudity isn’t about sex is better than great.  To enjoy the freedom of naturism is amazing.

While at the camp. there was a family who had five kids.  Three of them, little girls, were all free, and wonderfully naked.  They had a great time!  They rode their bikes and played in the playground.  They noticed neither their nudity nor anyone’s  Their oldest sister, around fifteen, was not comfortable being nude.  I don’t know why, but since this club is not clothing optional she was imprisoned in their campsite.  It was the only place she could remain dressed.

It made me think of all the people who, for whatever reason, can’t enjoy the freedom of being nude in a social setting.  Whether it’s fear of being criticized by others or themselves, they have thrown themselves into the dungeon of the textile world.  To me, that is sad beyond belief!

What brought these people to the point where they believe all the garbage that the world throws at them as to what the body should look like?  They seem to think that various body parts need to look a certain way to be acceptable.  Do they find themselves unacceptable in other ways as well?

Being locked in a textile world is just symptomatic of a larger problem of insecurities.  I often wonder what the world would be like if everyone felt secure enough to be naked everywhere it would be comfortable to do so.  I’m not saying that nudism would cure the world’s ills, but then again….

      It just makes me sad. It’s bad enough I have to remain clothed, but all those who feel they HAVE to. What a pity!

        Steve, we too are feeling more and more frustrated by the societal confines of clothing. This time of year we are nude 90% of the time. Since we home office no need to dress. It’s very frustrating to have to dress to do simple outside chores and sometimes we don’t, our neighbors all know we are nudist anyway, why hide anything. Going to make a bank deposit at the drive thru or just dropping a letter at the drop box, why should one have to dress for that ? Last weekend after two days and nights at our nude resort we so didn’t want to get dressed so made the two hour drive home nude, it felt great, it felt normal and natural, we have done it before. It’s just becoming more difficult to be a part of a dressed society.

        And what is really sad, at least to me, is the reason that dressed society exists. If they would just experience naturism until they were comfortable, they would never want to be textiles again!
