How to Have Fun Being Naked

Four Methods:Appreciating YourselfGetting Comfortable With Your BodyGetting Comfortable With NudityAcclimating Yourself With Public Nudity

Nudity is often regarded as an uncomfortable or embarrassing event usually because of the stigma surrounding nudity and the cultural influences that frame the perception of nudity. Yet for many, nudity actually is quite freeing. Evidence of this is visible through nudist colonies and nude beaches, but to get to this stage -- the free-minded nudist stage -- you first have to get comfortable in your own skin.

Method 1
Appreciating Yourself

  1. Image titled Have Fun Being Naked Step 1
    Create a self-love routine. Establish a routine that helps you feel good about yourself. This can be anything -- doing your hair, nails, or wearing something that compliments your body. [1]
    • These tasks do not have to be body related. They simply need to be tasks that help you feel better about yourself. Any task that makes you appreciate yourself is beneficial. Any grooming tasks will be helpful.
    • Wearing clothes that make you feel good helps to boost your confidence. If you don’t feel good in your clothes, then it will be difficult to feel good without them.
    • Do the routine often. In order to build confidence, repeat your routine at least once a week to establish a regular day or time that you dote on yourself.
    • If you want your routine to have a walk in the park or go swimming, go for it. Go anywhere that makes you feel confident and/or comfortable.

    Eat healthy foods. Nothing can make you appreciate your body and dote on yourself like eating well. Eating well makes you remember to feed your body “good fuel” so that it functions properly and looks good. [2]
    • It is difficult to appreciate your body if you’re thinking about the extra donuts you ate, or if you’re counting all of the wasted calories that you’ve taken in. It will make you feel insecure or guilty, which is counter to the confidence you’ll need to have fun naked.
    • Don’t feel guilty about what you eat. If you’re going to eat it, don’t waste time counting all of the calories or thinking about it over and over again. This too is a confidence buster.
    • Eat healthy foods as a reminder to appreciate the skin you’re in. The food itself is a reminder that your body deserves to be fed and treated well.
    • If you're already on a healthy diet or meal plan, you don't have to overdo it. Take an evening snack once every other day or so if you feel like you're stressed over eating too healthy. Even though you want to be healthy, remember there is a thing that's called, "being too healthy."

    Compliment yourself. Instead of putting yourself down constantly, compliment yourself. The confidence to have fun naked begins with not judging your body or putting yourself down. [3]
    • With the process of complimenting yourself comes the responsibility of not doing certain things such as criticizing yourself. Don’t stand in front of the mirror and point out everything you don’t like.
    • Point out a few things about yourself that you like. Write them down if necessary. Use these qualities to counter the negative judgements that you might make about yourself and your body. For instance, if you think something negative about yourself, counter it with one of the positive comments that you’ve already identified. So, counter “I hate my arms” with “I have great legs.” [4]

Method 2
Getting Comfortable With Your Body

  1. Image titled Have Fun Being Naked Step 4
    Move your body. Any kind of physical exercise whether it is running, dancing or yoga helps to build body confidence.
    • Choose an activity that you enjoy. Kickball, walking, karate, swimming and dancing, for instance, all are activities that can help you begin to associate having fun with moving your body.
    • Physical activity sculpts and molds the body. Whichever activity you choose serves of dual purpose of body sculpting and enjoyment.
    • Exercise or physical activity slowly helps you feel more confident about your body, which is helpful when you’re nude. The point is not to lose weight but to gain confidence through movement of the body. [5]
    • Stay hydrated if you want to do a regular or an extreme workout. If you're not hydrated, you'll be tired the rest of the day and also be out of breath as well for the people that have asthma.

    Pamper your body. Get a massage or facial. The act of pampering yourself pays homage to your body. It helps you appreciate your body and love it, which makes it easier to incorporate several of the previous steps such as moving the body and eating healthily.
    • Pampering yourself could be as simple as taking a long bath instead of a shower. Add some sea salt or flower petals to the water.
    • Grooming activities such as shaving, combing the hair, and rubbing lotion on the body all are elements of pampering and self-appreciation. These tasks build an appreciation for the body that are independent from material adornments such as clothes, shoes and jewelry.

    Get naked at home. If you’re comfortable being naked at home, then it’s much easier to be naked around others and have fun doing it. Getting comfortable with your own nudity at home is essential to being comfortable nude out in the world.
    • Stand in front of the mirror naked -- not to criticize -- but to appreciate. This also lets you get comfortable seeing yourself naked. If you’re uncomfortable looking at yourself naked, then you will be uncomfortable when others are looking at you naked.
    • Do an activity around the house naked. Water the plants. Dance. Read a book. Style your hair shirtless. It doesn’t matter what the activity is as long you get comfortable doing it naked.
    • If you are not comfortable going fully naked just yet, wear lingerie and build up. Lots of different types are available, so your bound to find one that will make you feel confident and sexy.[6]
    • Begin to incorporate nudity into other daily activities even if you’re out of the house. For instance, try not wearing underwear, or go braless.

    Start doing things naked that you would normally do with clothes on. Daily tasks such as making phone calls naked won’t seem so weird after a while. Plus, you’ll get a thrill out of your little secret.

Method 3
Getting Comfortable With Nudity

  1. 1
    Once you are comfortable with your own nudity, you can start embracing nudity in public situations.
  2. Image titled Have Fun Being Naked Step 12
    Go to a Finnish, Turkish or Korean spa. Most Korean spas have gender-specific nude areas, which means you are free to go nude within the confines of specified areas. So, in the male area, men are free to go nude, and it’s the same in the female area. [7]
    • Within these areas there are saunas, bathing areas and grooming areas. So, you can slowly get accustomed to being nude in the company of others.
    • If you’re still not completely comfortable, use a small towel to partially cover yourself. Typically uniforms are available to wear as well.
    • Come with a friend so that you have someone to talk to, if that makes you feel more comfortable. Some people may prefer to start with just strangers.
    • Give yourself something to do. Bathe yourself or groom yourself while at the spa, and you won’t be totally focused on your nakedness.
    • Also, while you're there, try to get a massage too. It'll help sooth your nakedness, and it will also sooth your back!
    • Nude massages, for instance, are a way of acclimating yourself to being nude around others. Typically, the parts that are not being massaged are covered up with a towel, so you will have some sense of being covered.

    Sunbathe naked. Do it on the roof of your building, on your deck or at the local pool as long as it is allowed.
  4. Image titled Have Fun Being Naked Step 13
    Get naked in front of a supportive person. If you have a significant other or have a supportive friend or family member, get naked around them only if the other person is comfortable with it.
    • If you’re comfortable around your significant other, then you’ll be more comfortable during sex or other forms of sexual activity.
    • Being naked around a supportive person also helps you gain confidence and set aside any fears. No one is going to gawk at you, point or laugh, which is some people’s greatest fears.

Method 4
Acclimating Yourself With Public Nudity

    Go skinny dipping with a friend or supportive partner. The water will partially obscure your naked body, which allows you to slowly get used to being naked and having fun while you do it.
    • To be more comfortable if you're still not sure enough about showing off your skin, wear a really small bikini, one that is also clear or nude colored.
  2. Image titled Have Fun Being Naked Step 17
    Go to a nude beach. Since everyone should be nude, you’ll probably feel more comfortable in your birthday suit as well. Nude beaches give you an opportunity to walk around in front of strangers nude, swim nude and play beach volleyball or frisbee nude. Where else can you do that?

    Do naked yoga. Generally, the classes are gender-segregated and are designed to help everyone feel more comfortable being nude no matter the shape or size. [8]

    Join a nudist group or colony. If you really like being naked, you’ll probably want to do more of it more often. In this group, you’ll find a group of supportive people who share in your joy of having fun naked. [10]


  • Do not "body shame" others around you who is nude. Think positive, not negatively.


  • Use plenty of sunscreen for sunny days. If it gets too cold, put something on. Be sensible and have fun.
