View Full Version : Nudity in the Playground

In July I am planning to attend a naturist evening at big corn maze. To see what naturism like. Unfortunately it conflicts with my gaming group's timetable. So last night I decided to tell them that I would be absent that week and why.:smallredface:

Then a very funny thing happened...

The group decided that we could all go and make an evening of it. This was very much unexpected. We are a mixed group of genders with even a transgendered member.

They didn't seem to share the same level of secrecy that I tend to use. Eg. My work mates wouldn't be told, they don't even get to know about D&D.

So now there's a Facebook event and my friends are rallying every contact they've got. It's amazing how they can have such a different attitude to me.

Now I've gone from an event as a stranger that I can chicken out from if I want, to an event with buddies that I'm pretty much locked into...:smalleek:

Can anyone say it'll all be ok? Anyone done anything similar?

And by logical extension of the story... any one near York, England, we could have it as the next GITP meetup :smalltongue:!

It will be okay. A little nudity has never hurt anybody.

Granted, I've never actually done anything like this, but I do plenty of embarrassing stuff, and none of it actually ends the world. (Except that once, and it got better.) I do question the wisdom of such practices in England, but I suppose summertime would be okay. :smallwink: I do see how it's worse to have friends along, though, and I can quite sympathize.

So, um, yeah, best wishes. You'll pull through. Stiff upper lip and all that.

Yo :p Though, I'm stupidly busy right now and it really isn't my thing...

Still. You'll be fine. I'm guessing it takes place in private as opposed to nudity etc out on the street.

Plus, if you're in York... you may be familiar with the Vikings coming every now and then. Hardly the same, but sort of similar - weird clothes (or lack of in this case) and possibly "different" stuff being done. With the exception that when I'm down there being a Viking, we're out in public.

it goes from being something secretive and potentially shameful, to what it SHOULD be - a bunch of people, having fun, just san's clothes

Nudity is only great when the weather is nice, or you're in a place with controlled temperatures.

However, all spas should be nude-only by law.

Sounds like it'll be awesome. Here in the States everyone is ludicrously Puritanical about nudity, but I'd totally be all about such an event (provided it's in Summer because... Milwaukee). Having a bunch of folks you know there does change things a bit, but after the initial shock and awe phase (5-10 minutes) I think you'll be having a rip-roaring time.

Rock out with your um... socks off. :smallwink:

It's in a corn field outside the city. They carve a maze out of it each year. And for one night a year it's no clothes night.

It might get cold as it's in the evening... But I dare say that if it is cold we can warm up by tackling the maze fast rather than walking it. A power walk would probably do the trick... although it might be uncomfortable for a couple of the girls to go fast without sports bras.

I was an exchange student quite a few years ago. One of the places my host parents took me was a public indoor swimming pool + sauna. The whole sauna section has a no-clothing policy. Let me tell you, it was a bit uncomfortable at first, especially when my host parents came in (naked) and told me I had to take my suit off. But let me tell you, you do get used to it. About 20 minutes into it, and you should feel pretty comfortable.

My advice, take it like jumping off a cliff into a river. Steel yourself up, throw yourself out there, and once you are freefalling, you can't really change your mind.

Then again, at least I had the advantage of a cold pool in case my body started getting...unruley.

Lies and slander! I just turned 19, and it feels like I've spent more time in recent years with an unwanted erection than not. If there's some secret way to stop the need for strategically placed textbooks throughout 80% of my school day, it would be really awesome to know.

You'd be suprised how hard it is to get an erection when you're naked, surrounded by people in a non-sexual scenario. And when it's cold. First time I 'did it' with spectators I had to concentrate, and that was a sexual situation. I've never got one in a nude spa or anywhere like that. It just doesn't happen.

Well, you start by establishing such absolute control over your movements that you lose almost all coordination. You will never be able to dance, and walking will be occaisionally difficult. You will always stand akwardly, and if you're like me, will often stare, as you need to concentrate on what the rest of your body is doing.
Once you've done that, just concentrate really hard, and you can halt and reverse any unpleasent scenarios. Also, if that doesn't help, keep a mental stock of images that act as a form of kryptonite to it. Shouldn't be hard.

Not intending to offend any nudists, but isn't the generally quoted rule:


The people you see at nudist gatherings are the people you least want to see naked.

That alleviates the problem somewhat!

That's not something I'm worried about. While I do like girls and have no trouble getting an erection in a sexual situation I think that Colin and the Irish one are spot on.

Where will I put the keys to my cool cool car? That's a good question. It might be a good idea to bring a back pack. Nice save.

When is the event? The Last Saturday in July, in the evening.

This. Very much this. While I never used mental pictures/imaginings in a situation like this, they can be very handy to make you cease-and-desist from some actions. I was using it not to laugh. Worked like a charm.
Then everyone looked at me funny when I told them how well imagining someone twisting a knife into your gut will keep you from laughing.

I agree with the general consensus. You should be fine, in fact you should be better than fine since a bunch of people you know are going.

Yeah, I can't do that; ideas of violence directed at myself tend to just make me laugh harder. I have to remember things, not imagine them, when I want to stop laughing. Usually people who made me angry, or jealous, or some other emotion that destroys humor.

But, yeah, sexual arousal, mental images, fall flat like some kind of flying pancake.

Simple. My mother is Irish, but emigrated to London at a young age with her mother. There she met my father, an Englishman from Devonshire and voila! I was born, half-English and half-Irish, with the legal right to claim a passport in both nations.
I used to play Capoeira, which you may or may not have heard of. It's a brazilian martial arty sort of thing. Anyway, capoeiristas get a nickname at their batizado (kind of like their first grading, means baptism) and the one that I got given was Panda, on the basis (or so I'm told) that I'm short, strong, round and fuzzy.
Oh, and I like ice-cream too.

Told you it was simple.

And your circulatory system is specifically adjusted to pump more blood into that area during an erection, so being upside down might not have as much of an effect as you might think.

Someone else pinned it pretty well. A big key is to keep yourself engaged. Don't let your mind wander, and it will tend to want to wander. Fantasy is the largest drive of sexual excitement, the anticipation of what MIGHT happen. So, if you are standing there talking to a nice young lady, and your mind wanders to thoughts of becoming lost for hours at a deadend in the corn maze with her, chances are, you're body will have a reaction. If you keep yourself alert to the present, ask lots of questions, and otherwise have a stimulating conversation, it will prove to be less...stimulating.

Make sense?

Nah, the really hard part was when a bunch of people (mostly family) asked what I did the previous weekend, when me and my then gf went to a swingers club, you know, just to check it out. Yea...that was NOT something I was interested in telling grammy about.

Anyway, because nobody yet has reacted with an "OMG freak" I told my tale to a couple of trusted work colleagues and they thought it was a positive thing too. I'm feeling really priviledged to be friends with people that are so supportive. It's like a happiness chain reaction right now and we've not even done anything yet. Even if the event turns out to not be enjoyable the level of security I'm feeling at present probably already makes it worth it. And when I'm pleased I just have to talk.

How weird is that?

Any way to tie it into the knot/loops of your laces? Might be a little annoying if it keeps hitting your shoe, but it's just the first thing that came to mind if you can't put it in your shoe...

There's any number of those magnetic key holder box things (http://www.acehardware.com/sm-custom-accessories-magnetic-key-holder-custom-accessories-magnetic-key-holder--pi-1292149.html) that you could put your key in and then hide under one of the quarter panels of your car. That might keep your feet from having to bear the effort.

Are you really so afraid of your own body that you can't even draw that of another man?

Well i dont know about him but in my case i cant draw period and i am also afraid of my own body. And ashamed. And hateful....I need a hug.

A nuddy event eh? Sounds kinda neat i guess. Wonder if they have any in California. It would be warm...but you would get sunburned.

I fail to see what the shame of an erection is. If actions speak louder than words, and you "salute the queen", you're pretty much going: "I FIND YOU ATTRACTIVE!!1!" So long as you don't act like a stupid lech, I'd think that was rather flattering. :smallsmile:

I take offense at that statement. I am in no way leathery. Awesomely tan and lean muscled from cycling yes, leathery and remarkably unattractive no. Stormthorn I doubt there is any nuddy event around where we live seeing as it's the most right wing county in the state of California. Go a ways away and I'm sure you can find something.

The foundation of the event is that of trust, we all trust each other enough to share in a collective nakedness (I imagine). If someone is there for ulterior motives it undermines that trust and harms the gathering.

Just because somebody does experience an erection it doesn't mean they are a pervert but it sets off alarm bells. So I'm pretty sure it's just bad etiquette. A bit like telling a bomb joke to airport security.

I made a statement about my observations about most of a general population and you retort that you, personally, don't match that observation, and by your following statement to Stormthorn it seems like you're not even IN that population - and you're offended by it? That makes no sense at all.

It's no different from getting an erection when clothed. People don't want to know you're thinking sexual thoughts about them. Some will take it as a compliment, of course, others won't.
Getting an erection is more than a matter of "I find you attractive" anyway. Otherwise half the male population would be constantly sporting one.

I think that nudity is much more common in northern California; the San Francisco area in particular. When I was living in SF, there were a couple of weekly get-togethers hosted by friends of mine. Both of those houses had large hot tubs and the gatherings were always clothing optional; some people stayed fully dressed and others got naked, and everyone was comfortable.

Apparently it's fairly commonplace on the Bay-to-Breakers (http://www.baytobreakers.com/) race. Not that I'd advise running 12k with your Egon Spangler flapping about, but it might be fun if you keep your pace down to an even saunter.

About sun tans. Use sunscreen, and lots of it.

I once got second-degree sunburn on the back of my neck during a very long session of paintball out in the hills. To this day I have a rather large scar there from it. I was sick for a week; you could stand five feet from me, hold out your hand and feel the heat radiating off my neck. Sigh, I’ll probably end up with skin cancer. Wow talking about it makes my neck hurt…

I was going to make a joke about the book of erotic fantasy, but my neck is distracting me.

I was more worried about bad weather than sunshine, after 7:00 the sun won't be all that powerful.

Worst case we have some kind of cool storm. Imagine it, rain bouncing off your skin, as thunder rolls through the sky. And you're running. You're part way through a labyrinth, left, right, right and all the while there are far off sounds of others running but not knowing which direction to take. And the faster you run the more intense the feel from the water.

When I described this worst case scenario to my group... they thought it sounded pretty awesome.

I was a little upset when I told someone my tale yesterday when they thought it was a thinly veiled stealth orgy. I tried to correct him but of course I've not done anything like it before so I didn't have the wealth of knowledge to fall back on... :smallannoyed:

I'm sure it will be all good and casual with nothing seedy going on. But I feel that I've lost some respect of this individual.

Having had such good overall reception to the idea through my confidence to tell people I was surprised for someone to react the other way. But it's still a complete turn on how I imagined the vast majority would say it was bad.

I told my parents and they both reacted positively. So that's a good thing.

Well, I think these days nudists are usually viewed as slightly deluded but harmless except when it comes to anything having to do with children, as that tends to skeeve people out.

Also, running in the rain is always fun (unless you're wearing enough clothing to drown in it from the layers alone) though I've yet to do it nude, what with laws in the municipalities of the world being what they are, though I do remember stripping down so that all but the bare minimum of my clothes were piled on my shoulders as I chased my g/f at the time and was in turn chased by my best friend who was singing maniacally the entire time about the Rain Dogs and we all almost stepped on the same snake that was heading for higher ground. Still can't remember if we were able to determine if we almost got bit by a rattler or if we did determine that it was just a garter snake.

Of course, being in the same blanket, snuggling down with my girl to warm each other up afterwards was also pretty fun. :smalltongue:

:smallredface:Erm, that is, in short, I hope for your sake that it does rain but no one gets hurt in the ensuing fracas.

I tried to convince an ex-girlfriend to go to a nudist resort with me once, but that fell through. Since then, I've looked up info, but the only resort near me is very expensive.

Personally, for now, I'll just stick to walking around my house/backyard naked. And the occasional naked dance in the rain.
