  • A wonderful nude night and short hike

    A while ago I posted a short report about a neighbor I had gone nude hiking with. The friend was a nice guy who wanted to try something nude outdoors and I took him nude hiking to a beach just not far from where I live (hiking above the beach on trails in the hills). It was his first time nude outdoors and he loved it. I posted that he had taken his clothes off at the beginning of the trail even faster that I had, which I can tell you was fast! Smile

    Well, I had not seen him for a few weeks until one evening when I got home and a message on my answering machine was waiting for me. It was my friend wanting to go for a late night nude nature walk or just hang out nude. Where I live, in Southern California, it has been really warm for days and warm at night also. So I called my friend and suggested that we meet at my place about midnight. I grabbed some sleep (this was a Wednesday) and about 11:45pm my friend called and said he was going to park in the back of my place behind the garage. I said OK and told him I would open my garage and be out there in a few minutes. I opened the door garage door a few minutes later and was surprised to see my friend already nude and really ready to go (he had deck shoes on only). He had driven the short distance to my place nude and was in a playful and what I would call a fun kind of daring mood. I broke out in a big grin and quickly got out of my own t-shirt and underwear and, being playful also, I tossed both at him. I was nude too! It felt wonderful being nude in the warm night! He put my t-shirt in the car, I took my briefs inside and slipped into my own deck shoes in my kitchen. I had a few things out on the counter for refreshments and we relaxed for a bit and enjoyed two big glasses of iced tea and some snacks. We were excited about going nude and excited about the fun of doing so on a warm night together! We finished our iced teas (no wine, we had to drive) and it was time to go. We grabbed a couple of bottled waters and got in his car naked except deck shoes we drove the 12 or so minutes nude to to the parking area about five hundred feet from the opening of the trail area that over looks the beach. We locked up the car and hid the keys in a bag in the bushes. After enjoying the feel of the night air we began a wonderful walk on the moon lit but dark small road that lead down a shallow hill. The road to the beach from where we live is mostly between a lot of hills and all but empty that late at night as was the little road that lead to the opening of the trail. With no clothes on (deck shoes only) it was awesome! It felt wonderful! We were nude, having fun, we could feel the ocean breeze on our bodies and smell the ocean water! The night was quiet except the sound of ocean waves way below on the beach.

    When we got to the opening in the fence, we helped each other step the couple of feet onto the trail and stopped to look at the low light on the beach and ocean below. Wow, it was a beautiful thing to see! We stood there just enjoying the feeling when my friend looked over at me and suggested that we start our way on the trail that slowly leads to the beach below. Because we had taked about nude nature walks, we both felt like we had done it a lot together even though we had only once before. We strolled the path and shared a lot of thoughts and ideas about a lot of things, but always keenly aware that we were nude and it felt great! Since we had talked about the idea of going nude with a friend and letting go of all the social stuff about the body and gender taboos, it was very relaxed. After a while, we even felt relaxed enough to hold hands as we walked...important foot note here...

    ...I feel, so does my friend, that there is nothing wrong with guys in situations like we were in, holding hands and sharing the experience. It is not a "gay" thing, or weird, nor was it in any way a pelude to anything sexual at all, though it was a neat human feeling to share. It simply doesn't have to be "sex" or "sexual." It was a jester of friendship and human closeness to another person and a nude friend you (or I) are with, as would be a hug. People in other culturals and same gender do it all the time. In England, as an example, a guy will take his male friend out to the gardens behind a home and stroll together holding the guests arm as he shows his friend the gardens or a part of the house, Girls and women in Eastern cultures walk holding hands a lot in public and no one thinks twice about it. We did it and we bothed enjoyed it as part of being nude and the cultrual freedom. We also enjoyed a couple of sincere and innocent nude hugs; one before we began our stroll and the other before calling it a night on the top of the trail just below the street (more like a country lane) level. Ditto on the nude hugs as far as the cultrual freedom thing goes. If you have never held a friend's hand while some kind of nude recreation, or enjoyed a sincere nude hug, try it, you will probably like it and it might help you get over any remaining silly body hangups or taboos. If any of you have seen the movie Gods and Generals, as was a common custom of the time, General Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson was escorting a close friend around the campus and his friend was holding on to his arms as they walked and discussed matters of country, loyalty and more. It was a social custom of the time. Why not now?

    OK, enough said about that. Well, while freely holding hands and sharing the experience, we continued our leisurely nude walk on the trail that made it's way slowly down to the water's edge. We took our time stopping to enjoy the view. The night was warm and very healthy to feel. We were in no way any where near our clothes, and that was a great feeling. When you have no clothes on and you are not even close to your clothes you feel like you are free of them totally... we both felt relaxed and the night was wonderful!

    We finally made it down to the water and you could hear the waves coming in. The water was a little too cold to go skinning dipping, but we did take off the remaining of what we had on (our deck shoes) and walked by the water getting our naked feet wet in the cool sand. That was really a great way to cool down our toes! The night was still young so we relaxed by laying out on the cool sand and talking about more things than I can remember. We exchanged a light rubdown and enjoyed walking nude up and down the beach for what seemed like a short period of time, but was really about an hour and a half. At about what I think was around 2:30am we (after almost falling asleep on the sand while laying out for a short while) decided to head back up the little trail on the other side of the beach (on that side of the beach you can walk up the trail to the top, or walk up a large rain/flood drainage pipe that is about 4 ft. in diameter and is coorigted and acts like "stairs"). We helped each other up to the top (its a good idea to help steady the other person on the trail when there at night). The night was so beautiful and the view over the beach and ocean was beyond words! We exchanged a hug of victory..we had made it back to the top and helped each other through the fence! The road was as dead silent as it could be and all but dark except some light from a couple widely placed street lights. Because of the fires in this area (Southern California) it was darker than normal because of the the smoke blowing in from the South East over that area. That made the night even more mystical to see and even smell. We walked back to the car, and drove back to my place where we both sank a much needed iced tea again, enjoyed a glass of wine and both took a shower to get the sand off of us and gave each other a massage. We both had a great time free and naked!

    Great story. Looks like you've found a hiking friend. Sorry you felt the need to explain your male-bonding. I guess in our culture (America) any sharing of intimacy between guys comes off as being gay but, really, it takes a lot more than that. I've wondered about hiking around here (Southeast Virginia) nude at night but there are so many people I'd be nervous about running into someone who would freak out.

      This is a wonderful and well written story; I could see it through your eyes as if I were there.
      I agree with Christian: the footnote regarding male bonding could have been left out. There is nothing wrong with sharing a moment with someone and reaching out for someone. We as humans fear this and judge, while other animals know no fear. It is a social interaction that has been lost to our society, but not to all societies.
      If someone is judging you, it is from their own insecurities, and maybe they should take a look at themselves and question their anxieties.

      Thanks for sharing.

        Welllll...yes and no. In some tribal societies, it is not uncommon for a man to body paint or cover another male's body with mud; yet this is done for practical reasons moreso than a display of affection. Sure, I have hugged nude males; but it's always been upon greeting or departing. Sure, I have applied tanning lotion to another male's back; but it was always as a practicality. Holding hands in a prolonged manner is a display of affection in any culture, at any time.

        Is holding hands opening the door to more "involved" forms of intimacy? Perhaps yes, perhaps no. If Terry and his friend are comfortable with the situation, and have the same mutual understanding of their rapport and its innocence, then they are perhaps even more advanced than I. But being judged by others will be unavoidable, since most people (and societies) still link male bonding and homo-eroticism.

          Maybe a slightly different take...

          I am guessing the inspiration to hold hands actually derives from the implicit insecurity of the situation, whether the participants in public nudity are conscious of it or not, there is an element of risk in this stuation. If they should be caught by local law enforcement, it is likely no less than a ticket would be issued for public indecency (not that I agree, mind you), or if caught by less understanding individuals (e.g. a armed "gang" or sociopathic thug) they could be physically harmed; so the holding of hands MAY be a security thing.

          There is nothing wrong with holding hands and of course the participants are going to rationalize it in whatever terms are most comfortable at the time. It is like grabbing someone's hand when the airliner begins bouncing around in turbulence; a perfectly natural reaction to an uncomfortable situation.

          The giving and receiving of rubdowns is somewhat more expressive in my opinion. If the hike had been during the heat of the day and of a much longer duration, I would expect it more so than in this late night account. That type of intimacy is either a request for intimacy or an expression of openness to intimacy; again perfectly natural and should not be judged by others, just as the author need not have explained a reason or rationale for it. Since both of the people in this story are consenting adults, how they "play" together naked is not really for anyone else to judge.

          I have often wished there were less taboos on playful behavior in adulthood, and maybe I am just living in the wrong city, state or country, because I think play is ALWAYS fun. Reaching the age of adulthood should not mean play is abandonded in favor of seriousness, but I bet much or the tension, violence, anger and hateful behavior in the world is due to a lack of play. The seriousness of life is "forced" upon us and we accept it far to readily.

            Oh, absolutely. I was amazed, in my early days of nudism, at the lack of tolerance for playful intimate contact between adults. That was why I had a preference for nudism among friends; because among friends it was okay for my wife to jump on my lap, wrestle in the pool or in the grass, or be playfully intimate with our guests/hosts without the fear of someone giving our actions a sexual connotation and freaking out.

            People now are so afraid of sex that they see it even in the most innocent displays of physical intimacy. It is a sad state of affairs.

              There is this guy...

              I read about awhile ago in the Washington D.C. area that actually teaches adults how to play again. He gets hired by both government agencies and corporations and does it under the guise of team-building and stress relieving. I do not recall the complete details of the article, but I remember thinking it was a very cool way to make a living!

                Terry, sorry, bud, but I just don't get your long post.

                It reads like a long excuse for a midnight rendezvous and a first time gay experience, even if you guys didn't have full-blown sex.

                I'm gay and I can't remember when I felt the need to hold the hand of a straight or gay friend - male or female - nor have a "rubdown" (what a quaint, YMCAish word) either. But having said that, on occasion I have wanted non-sexual intimacy with straight and gay, male and female friends.

                Maybe the both of you are experimenting with a same-sex experience? That's OK - you don't have to cloak it in the nudity-is-not-sex scenario, as if you were doing something wrong. Your post was written as if you're apologizing for the event that happened, or looking for confirmation from the world that what you did was fine. And it is.

                So you went out and had an intimate time with a new male friend. Cool. But why stress the notion that what you were doing was not "gay" or "weird". Being gay is not weird, OK? It's just the way a small percentage of the population orients itself.

                Relax and stop rationalizing human emotions and basic needs.

                  Wow, I am surprised that you would come to the conclusion that you have given that I went out of my way to make sure it was clearly understood that sex and any kind of had nothing to do with our nude hiking. Why does it have to be and why do some people always seem to come to that conclusion? My whole reason for the footnote was to make it as plain as possible that male bonding and openness does not have to be about sex and it was not. That's OK I guess, I took and chance and posting and open report about a neat nude experience with a friend and I knew that no matter how strongly I explained things, they would still be misunderstood anyway. No matter, all opinions respected as far as I'm concerned.

                    great story and very detailed. sounds like you not only had a great nude hike but some bonding along the way. this makes a friendship even stronger than ever. i think the two of you will have many more hiking experiences and you should. enjoy what the other has to offer and forget about the tabboo of society as long as no one gets hurt mentally.

                      Hi everyone, I'm glad that posting myself and my friend's hiking and experience was enjoyed. I think it's important to post reports of this kind because it encourages others to let go of the chains that stop us from enjoying life nude with other people and friends. I would love to hear the experiences of others. We are planning on going again, we may try and visit 2 or 3 locations next time if time permits. I live in an area that is mostly suburban, but has a lot of areas where you could drive to some close locations nude if you wanted to. As I posted, we drove nude to the beach area and we could do so to a couple of other places. Driving nude was great too! If anyone has similar experiences to share, I would love to hear them! We try little things like taking the other person's clothes off for them, kind of a jester of helping the other person, or a kind of service to them. Cool eh?! Who needs clothes, two people can get them off faster, and three even faster than that!! LOL

                        re

                        That was a good story about your adventure. I also like to hike, camp, etc., nude, but I travel allot for work, so it's difficult to come up with a hiking partner. As a result, I hike alone most of the time. Any suggestions for finding a naked hiking buddy in strange cities?

                            I would leave a message on the forum page and see how responds to hike with you.

                            It would be great to hike over in the US

                              I use to live in San Diego, which was great because it was almost always warm, but now I live on the east coast and travel to Seattle and the midwest for business.
