First skinny dip!

Postby Maverick » Mon Aug 07, 2017 6:53 pm

On a church retreat at a Texas lake this past weekend, I skinny-dipped for the first time. Our church's collegiate ministry spent Friday through Sunday at some lakeside cabins, and since my brother and I were on vacation with our family all week we arrived Saturday mid-afternoon. We brought a tent to sleep in rather than sleep in the small and messy guys' cabin.

Anyway, after dinner and evening worship, most everyone went off to play some "Minute to Win It" games. I was tired from the week so I went to my tent with the intention of turning in early. However, once I realized I was out of eyesight and earshot from everyone else, I donned my trunks and went into the lake, just in case someone might see me. Once I was waist-deep I removed my trunks.

Oh, the feeling! It was one of the most exhilarating, awesome, and joyful moments of my life. I'm not sure those words even do it justice. I swam around a little bit, my trunks in tow, then stood up in the water and felt the gentle breeze cool me off. It was a beautiful Texas night, quiet with no bugs and a waxing gibbous moon. "God, you're so good," is the thought that kept running through my head and eventually I was standing about knee-deep in the water praising God's glory in all of my glory. All my tiredness vanished in the twenty minutes or so that I spent in the water, and I could have stayed there forever. The other thought that came to mind was, "This is the way it's supposed to be."

Eventually I waded back to shore, this time without my trunks on, dried off, and went to bed with just a sarong covering my waist. My brother came to bed shortly after and stripped to his underwear.

Sunday morning, before anyone else was stirring, I went out of sight and took a lake bath to freshen up, going and coming wearing only a beach towel. I told my brother what I was doing and he didn't really understand why I was doing it but didn't say anything otherwise. One other dude saw me coming back from the lake with just the towel around my waist and waved from a distance.

I also spent a good majority of my time Saturday afternoon and part of Sunday morning shirtless and barefoot in mixed company, and no one seemed to care. Barefoot is the way to go, just watch out for ants and thorny plants!

Anyway, just wanted to share this great experience with y'all, and I'm glad to say that my first of many skinny dips was in my home state. :D

Congratulations on your first of many skinny dips, I hope, Maverick. There is just something so wonderful about the feel of water and air on our naked bodies.

Maverick, thank you for that wonderful story. Your gift of relating the details as they happened made me feel as though I were following you right into the water. I haven't had a chance to skinny dip in a year and a half, but as I read your account, sitting here nude at my desk, I felt the lake splashing around me too.

That's perhaps the best compliment I've ever had on my writing, so thank you very much! :D

Great story, Maverick! I particularly appreciated the fact that your first skinny-dip is so closely associated with your church retreat; your memories of that "first time" will be wrapped up with the special closeness you might feel for your community of believers and the worshipping of God. God *IS* so good!

Yep, love to be able to skinny dip. So much more comfortable than with a suit. :)

I'm still considering it... I do enjoy doing it... :)

For me, swimming is something I can take or leave when I must "suit up." Skinny dipping is something I will always take!

Hey Mav! I'm back from Kids Camp and just read your post. I'm REALLY glad you got to enjoy your first dip at a church event AND in your home state. That's one. Hopefully, many more to come, and soon. :D

And maybe your brother will enjoy his first dip, too, with you. Hopefully, he's getting used to it/you.

Later.

I try to skinny dip in my hot tub as often as I can, typically five times a week. Resort skinny dipping is only a few times a year.

Time to put Operation Normalizing Nudity into action... :D

I have yet to do either, but I plan to do both. I'm not much of a hot tub person though.

There's just something about skinny-dipping in a lake, surrounded by nature... it's almost as if God intended things to be that way. :lol:

Maybe you could do the nude 5k coming up on Sept 16th at Bluebonnet Nudist Park near Decatur. They have 2 pools so you could skinny dip with other nudists, play water volleyball and soak in the hot tub and chat with other nudists. The following week-end the North Texas Christian Naturists will be meeting at the same resort.
