I asked my girlfriend Santana how it was for her, to fall in love with a naturist guy while she had never thought of doing naturism herself. Here is her story, in her own words. Uncut. Enjoy.
I met Harmen on a dating app called Badoo. We talked about everything, like things we like to do. In the app, there’s an option to have private photos. I asked Harmen if I could see them. He gave me access almost instantly. I opened the map and couldn’t believe my eyes. I saw Harmen…. Naked! ( most of these pics are used in my first blog: How naturism changed my life ) I didn’t expect these kind of photos and didn’t know how to react. Sure he mentioned a few times his love for naturism, but blue as I was, I wasn’t expecting those kind of photos on his Badoo profile.
While watching at his photos, my respect for him grew. I told him this immediately. I said it wasn’t something I would do myself, but that I had big respect about the way he opened up towards other people about his lifestyle and how he shared his lifestyle so openly. We started our conversation about naturism. Now I’m the kind of person that appreciates people for who they are. I’m not judging someone because their ” different ” from other people. Harmen told me that he was promoting naturism a lot. And by doing that he had to show what naturism was really about. So that was his explanation for the nude photos. He mentioned an example that made it very clear for me instantly. He said: ” It’s hard to tell people how great Coca Cola is, when you’re wearing a Pepsi shirt. ” The same goes for telling people what naturism is about. So that’s how he told me how he discovered naturism and why he liked it so much.
And even though I had nothing at all with naturism, this didn’t stop me from meeting him in real life. A few days later, must’ve been around 8pm, I send him a message if he would like me to come over. First he thought I was joking, but when I told him that I wasn’t joking he said that he would like to meet me in real life. So I stepped in to the car and drove to Emmeloord ( 1,5 hour drive ), where he lives. We talked and talked and even though I mentioned several times I wasn’t making it very late, it became 3 am before I went back home. When I got home, I couldn’t sleep immediately. I was still talking with Harmen and I had a very good feeling about it. My feelings for Harmen were getting stronger every day and we dated a view times more.
It was March 30 of 2016 when we decided to share our feelings for each other and make it official. We got into a relationship together. That day is still one of the best days of my life. I didn’t care Harmen was a naturist and let him do his thing. He loved being naked when he was at home so I let him be himself. Within a week my curiosity was growing though, so at one day I took my clothes off and sat next to him on the couch. From the moment I was sitting I felt liberated and free. No tight or twisted cloths. Nothing. Harmen looked at me and he was so proud. He asked me how I felt sitting on a couch like this and I said it didn’t bother me at all. Actually it was a pretty nice feeling. I asked him questions about naturism which he answered immediately in a very clear way. I asked him if he could take me to Flevonatuur once. He looked at me and couldn’t believe his ears. He asked me if I really meant it because he would love showing that place and the atmosphere over there to me.
We didn’t wait very long, so two weeks later we went to Flevonatuur. I was pretty calm and relaxed. Not knowing what to expect. The only things I knew, was that there were naked people and a swimming pool. I decided that I wouldn’t make myself crazy with ideas of what it could be like so I jumped in. Letting it all happen. Once we arrived at the parc, we were walking towards the swimming pool and Harmen asked me how I felt and if I really wanted to do this. Which I answered with a big fat yes because I can’t judge it without trying it first myself. While we were walking to the swimming pool we were passing some people already and even though it didn’t scare me I couldn’t help thinking why they were sitting on a bike naked. Doesn’t that hurt I asked myself. I let it go and kept walking. When we arrived at the swimming pool we took our shoes off. We walked thru a door and there was my first scare. There weren’t any cabins to get undressed! I expected a lot, but one thing I didn’t expect was that there was one big room where everybody, young or old, male or female, was getting undressed. Even though it surprised me that much, I accepted it and got undressed. We walked to the pool and put our bags at some chairs. Harmen asked me if I was feeling comfortable and if I wanted to go for a swim.
From the moment I stepped in to the pool area I felt relaxed. Nobody was staring or scanning my body. So I decided to go for a swim with him. We took a shower to get the dirt off and walked in to the water. While swimming it didn’t feel any different for me then from when I was swimming in my bikini. And since I love swimming, I loved and enjoyed this aswell. After swimming for a while we decided to go for a smoke. Then we went swimming some more and stayed in the sauna for a while. After that we decided to leave, since it was already pretty late when we arrived at the parc. It was around diner time when we left and while walking to the car Harmen asked me several times what I thought of it. He saw I felt comfortable and told me I had nothing to be ashamed of. I really had a nice time that day.
Since that day, we visited Flevonatuur many times more. We even went there when it was Natupop ( it’s a naturist festival that’s once a year ), which was pretty cool to do. I’ve had never seen this many naked people together. And one thing I noticed that everybody treats eachother like they would like to be treated themselves. Everybody respects eachother and helps someone out where needed. We even had a drink at some people we met on Facebook. The conversations were getting very trusted and it felt like we knew them for 10 years already. Amazing!
I try to visit Harmen once a week when he’s working in the Netherlands. And when the weather is good we visit a nude beach nearby. Just enjoying our time together in our naked butts. I didn’t mind being naked anymore and because Harmen told me many times how beautiful I was and that I had nothing to be ashamed of, the naturist inside me was awaken. Now I love it to be naked and I even let Harmen take nude pictures of me to share with the world. Actually, most of the time it’s me bringing up the idea to go to a nude beach. I never thought I would do this, knowing I told him in the beginning I had so much respect for him how he was doing what he did, but that it wasn’t something I would do. Luckily my curiosity was bigger then my shame. I’m happy I’m a naturist and I’m not going back to my old life. As long as it’s with Harmen because I can’t see myself doing this on my own for now.
This was Santana’s story of how she fell in love with a naturist and became a naturist herself. We hope you enjoyed.
