Much healthier

This weekend’s trip out of the city to wander around nude in the bush and relax was exactly what the doctor ordered. As usual though for River Island and especially this time of year the clientele is older and definitely fits the more cliched nudist image. Yes, that means that they are pretty much almost retirement age and quite overweight. A couple of weeks ago I posted about a couple of guys I know with naturally beautiful athletic bodies who hated their body. Now one of them is quite comfortable nude but still hates his body so at least he’s not letting it stop him from doing things.

How is it that all these overweight mature people are so comfortable nude, as they rightly should be, when people that devote hours to the gym, healthy eating, cardio and their bodies are too shy to relax nude? Shouldn’t the fit athletic ones be the ones with less body image issues? It doesn’t seem to be the case. A theory that I’ve floated before on the blog is that the hotter you are the more pressure there is to live up to it and be hot. With age and experience comes wisdom. I think as we get older and even if our midsections do expand a bit, or in some cases a lot, there is a realisation that looking a certain way really isn’t all that important and the focus shifts to other more important things.

Having said all that, it would certainly be nice for a bunch of young hot athletic guys (and girls) to be seen enjoying the beautiful freedom that comes with social nudity. Something hot to admire never goes astray.

    Acutally I think you hit on the head.

    Those with the better bodies tend to have the lowest self esteem. Especially gay men. Sadly, I would be completely comfortable getting my kit off for some nude relaxation and I am quite chubby.

    Mind you, it is only recently that I have felt comfortable with my weight.

    I think part of the nervousness on the part of hotties is sexual expectations. If you are hot and naked – it isnt relaxation – you have to fuck. Apparently

    I think part of the issue could be that those guys and gals who spend hours in the gym are doing so precisely because they have body esteem issues. They are trying to turn themselves into a perfection which they think is necessary. Others who don’t see it as important just couldn’t be bothered to put in the hours for something which doesn’t stress them out.

    Like the others have said those who are usually in the gym go in to fix something that is wrong with them, or something they think is wrong with them. Body dis morphia in a way, something I’ve dealt with since I was 11, got worse around my last year of high school.

    I’ve always been comfortable with my weight, I’ve been mostly athletic my whole life but I often have times where I berate myself for not being muscular enough or my height which is another thing.

    Then there are those who are skinny and not matter how much time you spent in the gym it won’t matter….so why waste the time. Eventually you just learn to accept it, and if other people can’t….at least you can enjoy the sunshine.

    I have been quite heavy and now, 85lbs lost, not as much. At 50, I accept and embrace the body I have. I enjoy it and have found there are PLENTY of other men who enjoy it as well. I spend about 1 -2 days every 2 weeks at the nude beach in San Diego and love my time there. It is quiet, rarely crowded during the week and just a beautiful spot to relax nude. I walk the beach, enjoy the sun, visit with other nudists. And, occasionally, have some discreet fun with another man who likes the way my body looks. Relax, accept who you are, be kind to others and you will have way more fun!!
