#292 Skinny dipping somewhere you shouldn’t be

You were meant to be naked.

After swimming in a stomach you came out crying in a new world full of harsh lights, surgical masks, and cold tables. A couple minutes later you were quickly covered in plastic, wool, and cotton, but you never forgot.

You never forgot.

Yes, you’ve been in clothes for years, you’ve been in clothes since that day, you’ve been wearing socks forever, you’ve been wearing shoes the same way.

But… sometimes pants are a pain and shirts are a mess and life’s just a lot better when you’re completely undressed.

You were meant to be naked.

You came here without clothes.

You were meant to be naked.

And sometimes you gotta go back to what you know.

Stripping in the hot tub, jumping off the dock, slipping your swimming trunks off, and showing the world your … confidence.

Yes, I say just be out there and be happy, be out there and rewind, just get naked and relax, get naked… and forget time.

      1. Haha, I got to do the naked dock jump and naked dock subbathe too! We should do it together sometime!

        I’ve bared it all for hotel pool and hottub, au naturel sauna and birthday suit beach adventure. All lots of fun :)

  1. Walking around the house naked, awesome. Being able to turn the lights off, even more awesome ;)

  2. Ok, I’ve only sorta done this one time. About 2 years ago I did some naked hot tubbing at hubby’s friends house after everyone had already passed out. It was a little weird. The hot tub was outside away from the house halfway across the lawn.

  3. Sleeping naked FTW!

    When all my roommates have gone home for the weekend and the night is balmy, i strip off everything and snuggle under blankets. I always wake up the next morning a little disorientated; “WHY am I naked?!” but then I remember and smile to myself.

    There should be an Awesome post on having the house to yourself!

    1. Sleeping naked is the best! I hated having a roommate in college because of this. Sleeping with clothes on is so annoying.

  4. i love wandering around my own place naked. such freedom! couldn’t go back to sharing with others!!

    living in dubai is pretty difficult on the skinnydipping piece, however back in brazil me and 2 mates purposefully went to the nudist beach just to tick it off the list. only the weather was terrible, and there was no one there but us! went for a swim and it turned into a naked sprint for our lives because the currents were so strong! heheheheh

  5. I love the swimming in the stomach reference. I often wonder what it would be like to remember that experience. To bring those memories forthwith I like to refer to things with the word “womb”. One time there was a lot of compliments being paid to certain people in a room, and I said “There’s so much love in here I feel like I’m back in the womb.” Another time my sister’s boyfriend referred to a warm room as “womb temperature”. One final time while driving under a bridge that was getting construction done to it, there were some sheets tied to the scaffolding we were driving underneath and my friend says “Man… I feel like I’m back in the womb.” Awesome! Ha ha

    1. Well, perhaps you always could, but based on your words just the other day to “catching up” and all you’ve writen here within today, it is in my opinion, (for all it’s worth), to say
      WOW…you can personify your name very well:
      what an awesome response to Neil’s post today… cleared some town toxins from mine eyes and warmed the heart and the soul…topped with a drizzle of funny, thanks:)

    2. Yes, I loved that too. I think this post is my favourite so far. I’m very ready for this snow to go away now, so I can go swimming!

  6. Apparently my biological mother was studying psychology, philosophy and English literature at UBC, while I was a tadpole swimming around in her stomach, of which I was told I fought not to leave, resulting in ten pound 4ounce birth weight by forcepts & creating some neurological differences.
    I became an analytical, hyper-sensitive, guppy-trooper and attempt to “stay in the light of the deep!”
    How am I doing so far?!*
    Anyway… I am Spanish, French, Cree and Russian Gypsy Doukhobore blood, so spirited by nature a lover of the “Skinny-dipping somewhere you shouldn’t be!”
    THE absolute best when under a moonlit starry sky is the only light you see, glistening upon a pristine lake and you’re with someone who loves you, “Bridget Jones’ Diary” style…”Just as you are!”

  7. the Shuswap and Kootenay’s + all surrounding mountain/forest lakes is the answer to all dreams posted here within I’ll bet even “idonthaveaname” would discover who he/she really is…further than skin deep… deep down in the soul:)

  8. So, where exactly does “going commando” fit into this whole discussion?

    Freedom or zipper-disaster-waiting-to-happen?

  9. or being taken to emergency…USED to commando?!*
    Beautiful poem and, really nice image today too, by the way Neil…REALLLY NIIIICE:)))
    Got me thinking about The KINKS, “Really Got Me Going,”
    Butt I’ll not go Far Side or Weird Al here in Awesome Land:)
    I promised.

  10. In high school, my sister was the head lifeguard of one of the pools in my town … so in a fit of semi-rebellion, when she and I were checking levels at the pool after hours, we stripped down and jumped in. It was fun for a few minutes until we got paranoid that we’d get caught. :)

  11. Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it is really informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels. I will appreciate if you continue this in future. Lots of people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  12. I am a naturist, and every chance i get being naked is what i do, clothes are restraining, and cover our confidence with social conformity.

  13. Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  14. It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be
    happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I want to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I desire to read even more things about it!

  15. Thiss is the perfect weeb site for anybody who really
    wants to find out about this topic.You realize a whole lot its almost tough
    to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa).

    You certainlly put a new spin on a topic which has been discussed for years.

    Great stuff, just wonderful!

  16. I am one on five youngsters, who had been lifted in an old home with carrera marble tables.
    Anything was seen by those surfaces, from worse I’m certain, and look
    beautiful, clear and were the workhorses of well WELL and infants to potted plants employed kitchens.
    Cheers for all your advice on learning how to appreciate the ‘patina’ which grows overtime
    together with the marble.
