  • What are the tells that someone is a nudist

    This is probably an unanswerable question, but I find myself wondering more and about whether some of my neighbors, who exhibit some of the habits I, as a nudist, have adopted, are also nudists.

    For instance, there's the guy who always wears nothing but shorts and sneakers outdoors in the summer. Does his tan extend under those shorts?

    Or the woman who always has her blinds drawn and comes out in shorts and t-shirt to tend the garden sometimes. Is she starkers behind those shades?

    Nudism is taboo enough that I'm not about to go up to them and say, "I bet you'd skip those shorts along with your shirt if you could," or "yeah, my curtains are closed because I strip as soon as I walk in the door too."

    Does anyone have tips for sussing out whether someone else is a nudist, or stories about such inquiries? It may be just that I think nudism is so great (and natural), but I can't help but think that there are many more of us than we know.

    Thoughts?

    If they tell you they own an RV and use it every weekend, they might be nudists.

      How about if they ask if you play pickle ball?

      I recently met a couple who were driving an all-wheel drive vehicle with a mountain bike on the back and a sea kayak on the roof. It seemed we had a lot of interests in common. I was just returning from a run in the neighborhood. They were waiting for a real estate agent to show them a house, so I stopped long enough to tell them about the neighborhood. The wife asked me if I played pickle ball. I told her that I honestly didn't know what that was. I later looked it up on the Internet and learned that it is a cross between badminton and tennis and is played on a court similar to a tennis court but smaller. I then recalled that our local nudist resort, White Tail Resort, has such a court. I checked the White Tail website and found pickle ball listed as one of their activities. I am not sure if this was a signal that they were nudists, but that might have been the case.

        For me personally, the signal is the situation in the apartment. The theme of paintings, trinkets on bookshelves. When offering to display photos, hints of candid photos may slip through the collections. Of course, there are nuances in dialogues on a household topic, for example, on the topic of wardrobe or hygiene. I can safely call myself a nudist. So, it is worth showing my new friends "accidentally" among a dozen ordinary photos of photos on vacation, one of them in the nude. Immediately from the reaction, it is clear what attitude to nudism the one who paid more attention to this photo has.

          I’ve been amazed at some people who I thought might be nudists can be abhorred at the idea, and others who I’d bet on as anti nudist embrace it. I can’t tell or have any insights on how to tell

            Same thing here. I've made assumptions on friends/acquaintances in the past; based on seemingly "free-spirited" behavior, or expressed "anti-textilism" statements. And I've been wrong nearly every single time.

            Short of someone saying "ring first when you visit; I'm usually nude at home", or "I spent my week end at a resort"; I don't think you can tell 100%. Many people practice "casual nudity" (for example sleeping nude and having their morning coffee naked at home - like my Stepmom) but do not consider themselves nudists; and might even be offended or surprised by you thinking they might be (like my Stepmom). The number of people in this category far exceeds the number of people who have adopted clothesfreedom as a way of life.

              I keep thinking of this subject time and time again. Personally, I believe there are more people that practice home nudity than what we are led to believe. Even though they may not label themselves nudists, they do practice home nudity on a regular basis.
              Case in point, I know there are many Europeans, Americans as well, that sleep in the buff. There are those that like to lounge around the house in the evenings either totally nude, or wearing just underwear. I know some old timers didn't care if you saw them in their underwear. I have visited a lot of males in the past, that stayed in their underwear during the visit. Didn't bother them at all. I really didn't care myself.
              Then there are those older farmers/country folks that didn't care if they peed in front of you or not. To them, when you have to go, you have to go. Besides, being among males, it was no big issue, since we all have the same equipment. They just plop it out and went, while carrying on a conversation. When done, it was back to business. Again, didn't bother me a bit.
              Hunting trips, basically an all-male activity. Males changing in front of each other without batting an eye. Again, no big issue.
              But by todays standards, activities I mentioned are considered taboo. It's almost to the point that being a male is considered a threat. Males today, as a whole, has definitely been watered down.
              Just my take on this subject.

                My personal experience, all the above is true and still ok with the people I know even if they are not nudists
