I’ve been chatting with her daughter on facebook and normally working on her. She is also heavy set and did not like her body or nudism. But now after all this time she now is fine with us being naked at home when she and her hubby visit and she’s FAR more comfortable with her body. She has told us that she’s even naked at home a lot now and she posts comments on her Facebook page about positive body acceptance and supporting our nudist lifestyle. When it warms up next year, or if they come over for an indoor party by themselves, I plan on suggesting they get comfortable here and not worry about the clothes. But, if she’s her sons with her we can not do that as we can not be bare around them since their dad (her ex) isn’t okay with it, yet. We have been slowly instructing the sons about nudism and even set a nude photo of the two of us by our pool on display at the place where they could see it. The photo is very tasteful and while we are fully bare, I am sitting while Carla stands and no genitals are showing. Anyway, they saw it and mentioned it which gave us the chance to further clarify that we are naked whenever they’re not around and that we are more comfortable with no clothes. We also explained that there was nothing wrong with, nor in seeing our picture.
We hope to get them out to soak in the hot tub one day and we plan on having a signal saying that no suits are wanted in the tub, that will again get them speaking. Then perhaps one day they will desire to go without suits as well, even if we can’t yet. Or we will take them to Orvis hot springs and describe on http://shockingtown.com what to expect as it’s clothing optional. We’ll ‘probably’ wear suits to stop issues with my girlfriends daughters ex but if the boys say it is okay for us to not wear them, we likely will go without. Anyway, it will be a good way to get them around a larger group of individuals who mostly soak naked.
So, slowly, we’re helping friends as well as family, in addition to strangers, learn to be comfortable with social nudity and aspire to enlarge our efforts in the forthcoming year.
If I could manage it and had the freedom I would prefer to do much more, nearly full time, but for now I’m limited to part time activism. Maybe http://nudistspic.com ……
