Denial of the body is not going to be an issue in our family.

As we grew older, my husband and I grew closer and as time went on, we became a couple. Therefore, we were prepared to explore each other in a other accountable ways also.
One day, they will grow up and find partners of their own. As our children mature, we want to teach them the same worth and hope they’ll learn to be responsible and caring adults.
We can only expect that they will find others that will accept their bodies and will live in complete acceptance in their natural state if that’s what they want.

Evidently, no supermodels ever showed up.
The crowd was mostly men, perhaps a few elderly women, and to a 21-year old had who’d just gotten out of the Navy a few months before, 30 would have already been considered old.
According to his group’s web site, there’s no simple accessibility to Black’s Beach. Entering at La Jolla Shores meant a northbound hike and entering at Torrey Pines meant you had to hike south. There’s a hint on the Torrey Pines trail to the north which says, “Area Closed: Nudity Prohibited.” That meant you were close.
However, Dave had spent several hours on the bus just getting to Black’s Beach initially, followed by a long arduous journey down the cliffs.
“After such as long journey, I was decided to love the strand,” he said. But getting up the guts to finally worm from his shorts and get in the water took a while. He surmised folks were watching him, but didn’t know for sure.
Dave did not grow up in a naturist family but spent ” unclothed” when alone at home. Something inside him wanted to try going into a naked beach, to be nude outside in nature.
“I kept going to Black’s every year after that, as much as three to four times a summer.
What really turned things around was the day I found a coworker there. We were both walking towards one another. sh-. I would get in trouble on the job.”
But to his surprise, his co worker was thinking the same thing. “He kept inviting me to sit with his friends and I felt uneasy, being a single man as his group of buddies were mainly couples.” Eventually, Dave brought a female friend along to the plage, and after that the two of them began sitting with this group.
It would continually be the same people over the course of ten years, and while these single men kept returning, the girls never did.”
Dave’s new friends took it upon themselves to police the beach in powerful but non-confrontational ways. If some perv should happen to park him self down beside a woman, someone would sit in his line of vision and place an open umbrella down in between. When the girls began getting tighter with each other, it allowed for growth within our group.
It was in 1999 when a giant grill showed through to the strand. No one knew where it had come from but we asked the lifeguards if we could utilize it. They consented; after all it wasn’t theirs to give away. And ever since that Labor Day Weekend, bbq became a regular activity and was born. There were socials at friends’ houses, but these socials weren’t constantly naturist related, so consequently they didn’t operate like a non-landed nudist club, nor has it ever been a club. The scene was primarily centered on the sand: picnics every summer weekend, and keeping the plage clean. The group drew in more folks until there were a pretty even amount of women and men.
The only drawback, Dave says, is that because they don’t require membership, most of the playa goers tend to take the strand for granted. Additionally, though naturism has a long, illustrious history, very few if any bare beach-goers knew about it. In fact AANR did not really reveal much support for the bare beach movement for years.
