Now I want to be naked and painted silver! Photo credit from this awesome photographer: Guido Argentini

Lately I have just wanted to be naked, as much as possible. Starkers, bare bummed, nudie rudie patootie, that’s me. Obviously not in public, but as much as I can in my own company. Being completely naked, and comfortable in your own skin is very liberating.

It all started on my trip around the world. Mainly I am in company of others in hostels and on tours, and then when I get the chance to get my gear off in my own company, boom, off it comes, stripped naked, clothes deemed completely unnecessary.

As I travel through hot climates, warm stuffy muggy nights are even more conducive to being naked. After my shower, if I have my own space, I strut around my room, owning it, feeling free, un-encumbered, happy and comfortable in my own skin. It is a great feeling. I get nudists. I totally get them now.

Baring all began in a Turkish Hamam. Here I had to de-robe, bare all, flash my white bum, to this old Turkish lady; who I am sure has really seen it all. Every combination and version of boob, and bum, and flab and bone, oh boy, she has seen it. At first I felt shy, covering my privates; and then after all that hot water and calming massaging, I became a new liberated woman. Here me roar, in the buff.

I realised that years of dieting and often feeling very uncomfortable naked, was all bullshit. The more you are naked the better you feel. So many people have body issues, I think, the more you strut around naked, the better you will feel about your body. It worked for me, and I know it can work for you.

Regardless of your shape or weight, it is very important to feel good in your own skin. This relates to so many other aspects of our lives. And if you don’t feel good in your own skin, then make a deal with yourself that you will do something about fixing it and get on with feeling awesome. So much better.

Recently I was on a cruise, where most of the time, these two gorgeous 18 year olds, strutted around in no more than a bikini. Baring the most beautiful bodies you could possible find. Big breasts, skinny waists, tanned, athletic, slim and just gorgeous, lucky little devils. The thing was, I bet they didn’t even realise or appreciate how hot they really were. At one stage I felt like telling them but didn’t want to appear creepy. I too was hot once, and I never appreciated it! I always thought I was not skinny enough, or brown enough, or had this bump or this curve, or this blemish. To be completely honest I was smoking hot. I just didn’t know it. I just wish I could have appreciated my hotness more when I had it! Damn!

The older I get the more I realise how important it is to feel comfortable in your own skin. Exercise, eat well, work out, stretch, lift weights, eat super healthy. Do what you can to feel good about your body. It carries you through so much in life, and if we do not look after ourselves, we tend to feel like crap, unhappy and dissatisfied.

Being naked can make you feel more connected to your body, out of your head and in touch with yourself as a whole. It sounds simple, but if you don’t spend much time naked, like me previously, then you won’t know what I mean until you try it. It really does feel good. And sleeping naked, even better!

So what are you waiting for? Get those clothes off! Do you agree? Is being naked awesome for you too?

Anita, in the buff.

  1. LOL.. I sleep in the buff EVERY single night. I can’t sleep without my boys being footloose and fancy free.. The MOMENT I get home, pants are OFF, and I use a sarong (which is really kind of like “Naked with a sash around you”)…

    Maybe it’s a Latvian thing – although that would be weird because it’s so cold up there – but then again – that’s why in hotter climates, we just drop all the clothes.. 🙂

  2. I wish I could feel like this. I simply HATE being naked. I’m definitely not comfortable in my own skin. I’ve always had body issues, though I have improved a lot in my 30’s. It’s funny, I’m in much worse shape now than my 20’s, but back then I always thought I was wretched. Now I look back and wish I’d thought differently too.

  3. I am male, in my late 60s, and in OK shape. I have visited a couple of naturist resorts, have been on nude beaches, but find that simply being naked in the privacy of my home is most rewarding. My wife and I have both slept nude for all of our 45 years together, and we wouldn’t do it any other way. I am a licensed bodyworker, so I see all kinds of bodies. I honor the trust extended to me by my clients, mostly women, and celebrate their ability to receive my work on their bodies. Most would say that their bodies are far from “hot,” but still they are willing to be on my table, They are never fully exposed when I work with them, but I see and touch most of their bodies (genitals and breasts excluded). Sometimes, with some clients, I offer this little piece of advice: If it’t possible, at least once a day, expose as much of your body as you can to the elements. There is nothing better than the feeling of a gentle breeze on one’s naked body. You know that feeling, I’m sure. Plus, our bodies were meant to touch our environments. The whole “earthing” movement speaks to that. Finally, thank you for your thoughtful article. There is so much joy in the celebration of our bodies, however they are.

  4. I like being naked when it’s warm enough. At the moment my son is spending time with his father so I am free to wander around indoors with no clothes on. When he’s about though I do tend to dress to come out of my bedroom.
    I really like the photo feature in this post. I love the way the silver paint highlights the body structure – beautiful and very appropriate for the post too.
