The Story of My Naked Interview at Young Naturists America
Guest Blog by: L. Di Masi
So many interviews and so many let downs but one. I came across a website from my local neighborhood and became quite curious. I was down on my luck and figured doing something is better than doing nothing so I applied for a job within blocks from my house. Everything was fine and dandy until I had to explain to family members what the job interview was for. I’d applied for a job at Young Naturists America. I have to say I did not know what to expect. Would there be random people naked in a factory somewhere walking around with clipboards? Or some old beaded gentleman standing by the front desk with all his glory to show? I pictured a lot of nude art lying around for no reason, not sure why. I guess that is what happens when you watch certain shows on TV that put ideas in your head.
As the interview date approached I must say I was a bit nervous. Would this be a naked interview? Do I wear something that shows some skin? Do I go into the interview and get comfortable and remove some clothing? Will the person who answers the door be naked? As all these questions began to form in my mind I checked into the lobby.
The building was quite beautiful and not at all what I expected. It was a nice residential business in an area that I will not mention. As soon as I pressed the elevator button and got to my designated floor I very hesitantly knocked on the door. At last, here is the moment. Who is going to be behind that door? To my surprise everything that I questioned was false. It was a young woman and a young man who were in charge. They were dressed in a very laid-back fashion and I felt somewhat silly wearing such a formal outfit in all black. There was no factory of naked people or any weird beaded man sitting at a desk. As the interview went on I felt as if I were having a fun conversation with peers. At one point I forgot that I was there for an interview. We had some laughs here and there, and I felt completely calm. Naturists are some really down to earth, calm people. All of the judgments and stigmas towards Nudists and Naturists were cleared from my head. I personally never saw the big deal in doing things nude because it is in fact comfortable and much easier to decide on what you choose to wear to work. After the interview I returned home and thought to myself, this is going to be one interesting place to work. But I must make a note to self never to drink hot coffee as I write naked..ouch!

Sorry, Felicity Jones, I should have put that in quotes. "With Jordan & me" is correct, not " & I". After all, you wouldn't say "with I"...
This kind of sounds like a first visit to a nudist camp! Some of the same concerns and fears are present whenever confronting something totally new without knowing just what to expect.
Congratulations on braving it through; your reward is an exciting new opportunity to be part of something which could change the face of America!
