Introducing Your Significant Other to Naturism By Nudie Lee
How To Go About Introducing Your Significant Other to Naturism:
We have a new feature here on the Young Naturists America website! Writer, advice expert and good friend of YNA, Nudie Lee is here to answer your questions on how to balance your life and relationships.
To get things started this Valentine’s Day, we asked people on Facebook what they struggled with. Here is the first question we got along with Nudie Lee’s response.
“I’m a naturist and would like to bring my non-naturist partner to some nude events. What’s the best way to encourage him/her to come along?”
You’ve come along far enough in the relationship where your non-naturist partner accepts your naturist ways. That’s great! The tricky part, as you might know, is encouraging your significant other to participate. A few factors come in play.
- Has your partner repeatedly shot down all invitation to previous events? If so, count your blessings that you have found someone who loves and accepts the naturist in you, and also love and accept the non-naturist in them. We all want to share every waking minute with our special someone, but see the nude events as your you-time, like going to the gym.
- In any other case, choose your events wisely. For your first outing, try finding somewhere where clothing is optional. It’ll ease your partner into the nudie world, as well as show them just how easy-going a naked event is. Most non-nudists were raised in households where nudity was qualified as bad and brought up in a culture where nudity equals sex. Have that in mind when encouraging your loved one to join you for a night (or day) of nudie fun!
Just make sure you listen carefully to your partner’s concerns and do not try to preach the benefits of nudism to someone who doesn’t understand it. At the core of it all, the two of you are together for reasons far beyond your affinity to naturism. Maybe simply start by sharing a naturist home!
