My Accidental Nude Beach Experience

Updated on February 28, 2011

Warning: No nudey pictures, just a funny story:

I should have known, back when I was 5 years old and still streaking through the neighborhood at which point my mom exhaustingly explained to the neighbors she just couldn't keep any clothes on me, that somehow my life's path would have a nude beach in store for me.

While my friends were getting roommates to save money on living expenses, I spent the extra money necessary to live by myself just so I could walk around nude whenever I pleased. At least I saved money by never owning pajamas or a bathrobe all that time.

I would have been an ideal nudist, but I didn't even know that culture existed, let alone nude beaches. I thought those things happened in foreign countries, like the French and their topless beaches. I live in the northwest, far from France, so I thought my dreams of visiting a nude beach were impossible and I was ok with that, after all, I had my own apartment to live out my nudist dream.

Let me continue my nude tale...One day, about 8 years ago, my ex-boyfriend whom I was/am still good friends with, asked me to go for a drive to this cool farm area he knew about on Sauvie Island, Oregon. He knew I loved fresh veggies and fruit and these farms were perfect for me. So off we go on our little trip and It was such a beautiful day. The quaint, yet trendy farms were all I had hoped for- I got fresh cut flowers and hand-picked some fruit.

After we were finished at the farms, we decided to take a drive further down the old country road that seemed to wind on forever until eventually it came to a narrow gravel road. On and on we went down this gravel road- we only continued because there were quite a few cars parked ahead in the distance so we're thinking there must be something going on or at least some sightseeing.

Finally, a sign caught my attention "Clothing optional area beyond these trees". We both looked at each other and he totally read my mind when he backed up and drove by the sign again in slow motioned disbelief. At this point, we figured we drove all that way so what the heck. We parked at the end of a row of cars and stifled our childish laughs (ok we couldn't stifle our laughs, but we tried). As we made our way through the trees, the main thought going through my head was I doubt anybody will actually be naked. I was initially right because we stepped into the clearing facing a beach and a romantic couple walking hand in and hand with bare feet- nothing else bare though. Disappointing but hey it was a nice beach so we walked on a little further.

WHOA! Naked was suddenly everywhere; playing volleyball, frolicking in the water, building sand castles, eating sandwiches (note to self: Nude sandwich eating- must try that someday). It was a bit overwhelming even for me the closet nudist, but suddenly I felt uncomfortably overdressed. It was a hot day and my ex-boyfriend had already seen me naked a billion times ( we were together 5 years), so again I say what the heck. I can't say I just tore off my clothes immediately, but rather a little came off at a time and we stayed nervously near the tall grass and shrubbery. Needless to say we did not pull off veteran nudists very well, we were definitely the obvious newbie nudists that day. I gotta say it's a lot easier being nude in your own apartment with the blinds closed. I thought I was queen of the castle in my apartment, but at this beach I was more like peasant prudist (prude nudist).

Once nude, we put our clothes down and sat on them (no sand in our cracks for us), still up near the shrubbery and tall grassy area. The conversation flowed, maybe better than ever because we were nude with no pretenses or expectations. It was surprisingly intoxicating to feel so free. Next time somebody says skydiving is a freeing experience, I'll just reply " yes, but have you been to a nude beach?"

However, there was a point where it got creepy because we noticed a man with dark sunglasses sitting near the beach, but facing opposite of the water and directly in our direction. Was he staring? Ewww gross! Even grosser, he blatantly got binoculars out and was definitely facing our direction. My ex-boyfriend began instinctively threatening to go down there and kick his ass for being so crude about staring at me.

As he intently walked toward this man, the man's binoculars exaggeratingly followed my ex-boyfriend's every move. Instantly I knew what was going on- I ran (this is a whole other interesting nude experience) and caught up with my ex and told him the man wasn't interested in looking at me, it was him who held his gaze. Suddenly the pieces fell into place, and the instant look of horror in my ex's expression was priceless. Now this was funny! Not for my ex as he's still a little squeamish about homosexuality.

My ex no longer wanted to fight this man for fear it might turn him gay or give him gay cooties(trust me, he thinks this way) so we simply walked past him as the man smiled at my ex and said "nice", ogling him up and down. I was laughing all the way back to our car and I'm sure others thought I was in hysterics because I was immature about the whole nude thing, well it was that too, but mostly our little joke.

And that was my accidental nude beach story. I learned that nude beaches are a safer adrenaline rush than skydiving, and also, men aren't very attractive when playing nude volleyball.

      When I lived in California, I used to go to hot springs establishments all the time. Most of them were nudist. I went to soak in those magical waters. It took awhile, but eventually I started going nude myself.

      "I live in the northwest, far from France, so I thought my dreams of visiting a nude beach were impossible..." I once had a roommate from France, and she would sunbathe topless in the back yard. A young man from the Midwest had just moved in, and he said, "Boy, am I glad I moved to California!" But she turned out to be quite a shrew, so she didn't stay long.

      I lived in the Northwest a little while. Once I went with a friend to Breitenbush Hot Springs. It was too expensive for us to go in, but we found a tiny hot spring just outside the property. We stripped naked, and gave ourselves a mud bath. Then we saw some people far away filming us. We panicked, then realized the film probably wasn't that good, and even if it was, since we weren't famous, who would care?

      There are lots of establishments in the Northwest. There are lots of free hot springs, too. You might get the book, "Hiking Hot Springs in the Pacific Northwest" by Evie Litton. One place I'm dying to visit is Paulina Lake in central Oregon.

      Alen Ostovic,

      very funny experience. About 99% of the people on a nude beach are the ones I'd rather not see nude.

      If you ask me I would most probably rather go skydiving than going nude on the beach... I accidentally went to a nudist beach once ( I had my clothes on) while searching for a beach that was more private, and the one thing I noticed is that people over 60 that are nudists REALLY like to bend over while walking around the beach... Excellent hub, very funny *thumbs up*

      So it's creepy when the guy is staring at you, yet it's absolutely fine for the guy to make your boyfriend feel uncomfortable, and even funny? Perhaps he should dump you and get a decent girlfriend. One who cares about him.

      That's a funny story. I will give you a 9 since you didn't post pics,lol. I might have been to that beach before. I used to live in Portland and Beaverton, Oregon and I was dating Mrs Oregon at the time and she drove me to a nude beach. I remember this guy was burnt to a crisp and just thought he was every woman's dream guy. It was kinda weird at first but if you block out everybody else it feels natural.

      Laughed out loud as I read this hub. I had a similar experience with my family back in the 80's. My 10 year old daughter, 3 year old son, my wife, and I were going to the beach in Aquinnah on Martha's Vineyard when we encountered a similar family baring it all. Oh my God!!!!! However, we did not partake ourselves, but rather walked up the beach a few hundred yards and had an enjoyable day.

      The one thing that I found at the nudist colony was even though you are naked - you must have a towel with you at all times. That means - no bare butts on anything... lol

      @Harvey - of course I would go for that... lol... I am all about the different experiences. I told my husband we should do it again. But, now that the kids are too old for my comfort, I wouldn't take them with. A 2 year old is ok - they don't understand... but now that she is 9 - no way!

      Barbergirl~ thanks for stopping by. It is a great experience, but I'm such a germ freak I don't know if I could do close proximity nudity with karoake and stuff- that's brave in more way than one! It's amazing how being around nudists you feel awkward if you aren't nude-lol.

    • barbergirl28 profile image

      Stacy Harris 6 years ago from Hemet, Ca

      My husband and I once went camping... in a nudist colony. I can honestly say, it was the most freeing experience I have ever had. Although I did have to stifle a laugh at nude tennis... and especially nude karoake! What can I say - it was more like a resort.

      And most veteran nudists never judge, so, I got used to it and never felt more comfortable in my own skin.

I grabbed my clothes, gave him a filthy look and covered up again! talk about a cheek! ha ha turning to him I said in a voice full of indignation, 'have you seen what you wanted? or would you like a photo?' he ran!!! lol great story, nell

Yep, he was right. I will also tell you that (honost, I'm not making this up) there was a guy there who kept hanging around us and struck up a conversation with my bf. I was thinking it was me (great ego here) and I soon got the drift that he could care less about what I had to say or what I looked like but couldn't get enough of my bf.

      Lizett 6 years ago from The Great Northwest

      Harvey~ I know it all sounds suspicious, but the story is as told. It was all in innocence, but I think my ex knew of this place, just didn't know exactly where it was at. So on my side of things I didn't know where our little roadtrip would end. Now, what was going through my ex's mind well that's probably his own story. I'm sure he had his own thoughts. This ex and I are like brother and sister though. We still have a laugh at our little stunts back in the day. I have always been too curious for my own good and a little bit of a jokester and trickster. I've taken on some dares in my days. When you're in public in the buff, it's not "hot" or sexy at first, it's like your first time (well, mine at least)- unknown, exciting, with only a hint of eroticism.

      I can imagine how a guy or girl, nude, playing volleyball could be funny. We all have our dangly parts. Although I probably wouldn't have thought much of it. I guess certain people and societies are more mature than others about nudity. Gotta hand it to the guys though for having the confidence to play nude volleyball.

      Mikie~ great story! I can totally understand the allure of nude beaching. It is liberating.

      Something similar happened to me in that about 20 years ago I stumbled on a clothing optional beach. Curious I went to the water where there were about 100 nude people of all ages and sizes. I sat on the beach for about a half out with my suit on. I started to feel uncomfortable so I took off my suit. I decided to take a dip nude and when I got out of the water I was hooked. Not having a wet bathing suit on did it for me. I have been going to the nude beach ever since. For true nudists, like me, it is not a sexual thing.

      What a great story and fun comments!

      Your story reminded me of when my ex-husband and I went to his boss' house for dinner one evening. They had just come back from holiday and gave us the photo album to look at. It was a big photo album. They had mentioned that there were other holidays in there that we "didn't need to look at". So, as we were paging through, they were watching us carefully and then when got to a particular page, they said, "stop!" rather adamantly. But, I had already turned the page. And, there was my ex-husband's boss in the full monty surrounded by naked people on a beach! I told him that I didn't see anything so that he would not be embarrassed but I could not get that image out of my head for the rest of the evening!

      Thanks arthurchappell for reading!

      gachapoz~ it was funny and to this day I'm not sure if my ex boyfriend knows how many people have now read this story about him. At least he has a good sense of humor.
