Unclothed Freedom and Naturism: Introductory Website from Leaders of FKK Upstate NY

Greetings FKK! It is difficult to express the sense of delight, privilege, and duty we feel about becoming part of the FKK community and its wonderful eyesight. So, for now I’ll share the story of how we came to be involved in naturism and FKK.
Nude Independence and Embracing Naturism:
Bare independence – Let’s begin with a tiny parable about elephant stakes. As the parable goes, when elephants in captivity are young, they are kept in place by a trainer who uses a wooden stake pounded into the ground, to which the elephant is tied. When the elephant is a infant the stake is powerful enough to bind him. The pattern is never broken. Naturally, over time the elephant grows to full stature and power. Surprisingly, the full grown elephant remains jump with exactly the same stake used since it was a infant. All the full grown elephant would have to do is walk from the wooden stake and snap it off. Why does not the elephant do it? Because, it is not the body which is bound, it is the head.
Until recently our heads were bound with respect to entirely accepting ourselves and others. The thought of naturism as an expression of acceptance never occurred to us. Running around naked? Heaven forbid! Our families, society and the Church have instructed us poorly regarding body worth, modesty, and shame. Regrettably, most of churchianity is misguided with respect to God’s most wonderful creation the body. Somehow, from Eden, they were naked and unashamed, and naked baptisms of the early church, nearly all modern Christendom could not have grown more wimpy and stodgy when it comes to experiencing the naked human body.
Naked freedom
So when did things start to change for us? Well it began in Germany Susanne is a native German by the way. There I first saw nudity; at the strand, on billboards, and on prime time T.V. This made for occasional dynamic discussions between Susanne and I, or with buddies. Seeing nudity so openly made me interested and I ‘d often be the one to raise the matter. Susanne was rather ambivalent about nudity she’d sometimes practiced it on the sand, or as mixed gender showering with her volleyball club. Yet, our light interest in nudity gave way to churchy taboos as we became more involved in church. Susanne thought about her few unclothed http://nudist-video.net/young-nudist/nubile-nudism.php as a thing of the past, and eventually I quit talking about it as well.>
Years later, after moving to the States, we confronted our elephant stakes again. This time it was more serious than discussions about European nudity. There were growing stresses in our union and business. I was becoming a depressed and angry person. At precisely the same time we started recognizing Susanne had some pretty serious body image issues originating from puberty. This was the ideal storm when it comes to washing out romance. I was forced to rethink my business precedence. I had forgotten life is not ultimately about business, or things, or cash, or success. It’s really about people, about loving them. Without this love, my life was becoming intolerable, and I was becoming intolerable even to my family. Susanne on the other hand, had to face the negative body images from her adolescence that were critically hindering our physical relationship, and causing me a huge number of discouragement as well as the company tension I was under.
In the midst of the emotional cauldron we were in, I started to have this odd internal desire to get naked to only let go, be free, to be tolerating and accepted. Susanne failed to share this, and I cannot explain it. I was convinced it came in the dark side and I resisted it for quite a long time. I did not understand it was actually about elephant stakes. Paradoxically, I’d seek out secluded streams and ponds, expecting to take a naked plunge – but I couldn’t overwhelm my elephant stakes. I could not get nude, especially if other people were around! My conscience wouldn’t normally let me, regardless how much the discouragement and anger built up within me.
Ultimately, after several of the worst company weeks in my life the simplest things only seemed to be falling apart – I could bear it no longer. Like an unexpected benefit, when I arrived there was actually a middle age couple swimming naked and free! I ‘d never seen anyone skinny dipping there before. That has been the encouragement I needed. The internal tumult boiled over, I peeled off my clothing dropping years of tension, frustration, anger, and depression. I plunged in the water, and indeed I had been baptized anew. My heart and nature compelled me to take that plunge, even though my head was still convinced that it was against my faith. In hindsight, I really believe the Lord pushed me to http://nudism.name/nudist-video/blog-nudist-xxx.php , that pond, those fellow skinny dippers. I don’t wish to think of where I ‘d be now had that not happened.
After taking the plunge I told Susanne every detail about my experience, and I asked her to discuss it with me I knew the experience would not be complete without the love of my life enjoying it with me. Truly I CAn’t imagine continuing in it without her. I might have nothing coming between us, even this liberation. After a lot of very patient discussion, and seeing major changes in me, she eventually agreed to give it a try. We went to secluded locations, first alone, then with other naturists present. Her fears gave way to the sheer enjoyment of the encounters, and now the rest is history, as they say.
Because we now recognize that it is biblically sound and spiritually up-building, the experience is even more joyous. We are growing closer to each other, to God and to our fellow man. Since taking the plunge Susanne and I’ve worked through many body dilemmas and our relationship has grown. Furthermore, the negative approaches developed through once misguided business priorities, have melted away and I will be able to enjoy life again free of rage, frustration, and depression.
After all of these wonderful experiences, we’re just excited to give back by becoming part of FKK to be able to help young people eliminate their elephant positions and learn to accept themselves, and others. Jesus said, the best command is love God with all your heart, and the second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself.
Hey everyone, it actually is about the love, and Felicity and Jordan, thanks for your own vision and dedication!
