Hi! Welcome to my message board! Use it to contact me or others or to post questions and share ideas and experiences. The topic should always be related to nudism / naturism. Feel free to respond to posts from others in a respectful way if you have something helpful or meaningful to contribute. Let's keep it light, lively, and most of all, fun! Thanks!
Hello everyone! It has been a long time since I have posted anything here, but I have followed Sunnyday's site for years and appreciate it for not only the great stories that she has posted and has written, but for the strong Christian message she has as well.
I am mostly a wanna be nudist, as I have a very reluctant spouse who will not entertain the idea of visiting a nudist venue as she believes it would cause her to lust. She doesn't really enjoy being unclothed either. But I love her despite the differences we have in that and other areas of life.
I want to share a site that contains my favorite collection of stories of any site I have seen:
No sexual stories, mostly just tales of appreciation of beauty. Unfortunately, this site is static since 2013, but I am so glad it is still available.
I would like to ask you all to add to it in this thread. Can you recall a time when you were awe-struck by the beauty of nudity freely shared? Share it with us!
Looking forward to reading your story!
Oh 2 Be Nude 24/7
I guess that everyone has a reason to try nudity, and, further, has a friend or partner who disagrees altogether with that reason. As with other religions, there will be points of contention mixed in with points of agreement regarding a person's reason for believing something.
I can't see that there're any cold, hard fact about nudity, except that there are degrees of nakedness, places where nakedness is permitted, and times where the concept can be introduced without an upset, either by talking or kicking off your shoes.
I have a niece who wears a temple garment even when bathing. Apparently this thing is designed so that a fresh one can be slipped on as the soiled one is removed. That way her god won't see her sinning.
As for my wife and me, we sleep nude, do a nude yoga morning stretch, help each other bathe (backs and feet are hard to reach at our age) and cavort in our home and private back yard, unencumbered.
I would add this: almost any upsetting change can be distressing unless it is introduced gently.
She and I enjoy Sunnyday's site, too, because the group here is a support group as effective as we can find. It is really difficult to try discussing to our neighbors that we are not always dressed in our home. Some accept it, but one insists that we should be more careful.
Do post here again, and make it more of a conversation.
"That brings me to some concerns about the Domai site.
"I'm not sure what I think. It seems too close to soft core for me. Also, while the site hasn't been updated since 2013, the author, Eolake Stobblehouse, died last year, so unless someone is paying the bill to keep it online, it might go away soon. Link here on his death: https://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2022/04/goodbye-eolake.html"
First, BB, thank you for the link to Eolake's obituary - I wasn't aware he had died. I'm not surprised.
About 20 years ago, I subscribed to Domai - it seemed to me (in those days; I've changed now) that Domai featured excellent photography of attractive young women in beautiful poses that (in my view) were far from pornographic. Photography then was not digital, so the photographers had to work hard (technically and artistically) to make good pictures. Eventually, as his health declined, Eolake decided to sell Domai; it went downhill. I did not renew my subscription.
I exchanged messages with Eolake, who was interested in many things - cameras, early versions of e-readers, spiritual matters - but Domai was his main interest until he couldn't keep up with his own high standards.
How have I changed? I still appreciate beauty, but I'm more interested in the people themselves than the two-dimensional images portrayed.
I came across DOMAI ages ago. In fact I read somewhere that the title stood for "Dirty Old Men's, and I forget what AI stood for. I found it borderline soft porn. All of the girls were young, most likely just past 18. As someone who likes photography, including artistic nude photography, it was a turnoff. The point of artistic nude photography is to celebrate the beauty of the nude figure in it's natural state. At least in my opinion. No touch-ups to block stretch marks, scars or skin diseases like psoriasis. Below are links that I find that celebrate the natural nude.
