Need help telling parents I'm a nudist
Like this post? Yes | No    

I'm a closet nudist and I'm looking for some help, you see I want to tell my parents that I'm into nudism though my family isn't the most open minded when it comes to nudity and nudism.

How should I go about telling them?

All help is greatly appreciated

You could get some background info about naturism, which is not such a taboo thing in Europe as it may be in North America. There are lots of nudists in Canada 'cause all of Canada seems to inhabit our nude beach here in South Florida during the winter months.

There's a lot of sites online. Try The Naturist Society or Florida Naturist Association, South Florida Free Beaches. Get some info on how normal it is and maybe it will allay some of their initial misgivings.

IMHO - some things are better left unsaid. What you do and enjoy does not always need to be shared with others. My grilfriend and i frequent nudist resorts often but i would never tell my parents. We just say we are going on vacation for a few days and leave it at that. Some times what people don't know won't hurt them. Good luck with what ever you decide.

Telling parents
Like this post? Yes | No    

I agree with the post above. Why tell them? You are nearly an adult. You will be going away to school soon. You don't tell them everything else about your private life. You probably don't discuss masturbation with them either.

They probably would not receive the news well, so do them a favor and keep it to yourself.

If you do decide to tell them..I would recommend wearing pants.
You don't have to tell them at all. it's your life after all and you don't need their approval. If you do tell them, I wish you the best of luck on it.

It's always wise to wear pants when discussing anything with your parents.

It can be difficult to tell parents things you know they don't understand, and even harder for them to listen until you're done explaining. So it's up to you to enlighten them...
Got time for an off school book report?
Gather some facts, incorporate your views and beliefs and write it on paper, not too long, maybe a page or so. This way they'll be told without interrupting you or giving their two cents before you finish.

Maybe, instead of telling them you're a nudist, just write general knowledge about it,including some highlighted facts, include your general ideas without out right admiting it and have discussion when they're in a good mood. You can say you're flirting with the idea of it.

This way you'll get a definate respose on their views and if they over react, then you can stay in the closet to avoid any parental units coming down on you, until old enough when they can't stop you.

Just a thought...
Peace

Hah! That is all over the Web in many different languages. It is put out by the Naturist Society and is full of quotes from everyone in history who has ever commented on nudism (including yours truly a couple of times - Look for Rob Boyte).
