Introducing the Wisconsin Nudist, Chip Hudson & YNA WI
Welcome fellow YNA WI (Young Naturists and Nudists America Wisconsin) members…I hope you are enjoying your summer so far. I am writing this piece to our fellow naturists and our future naturists!!! I would like to introduce myself to you and to share with you why I enjoy nude recreation, how I got started and more importantly how you can participate in our upcoming activities.
Up until I was maybe 7, I was one of those kids that couldn’t keep my clothes on and I think my mom got tired of yelling at me…”Chip, strop running around the house in your birthday suit!!!” While growing up, I enjoyed going on vacations with my family to a bible camp. When I was 16, I worked at that bible camp for an entire summer and loved it. Every Friday when the campers went home, most of the staff would meet at the lake (around 10:30pm) and swim in the nude. We typically skinny-dipped most Fridays and Saturdays…and I became hooked. I didn’t want to go home at the end of the summer, but then I realized that my skinny dipping days were gone…until college. When I was in college, it was located near a nudist camp…and so my nudist days continued. I wasn’t brave enough to go nude in front of my roommates, but I was able to recruit some friends to join me at these camps. During my college summers when my Parents went away on extended vacations, I would often stay nude at home…and just enjoyed the freedom of not wearing clothes.
When I was engaged to my soon-to-be wife, I mentioned my naturist lifestyle to her and while she was reluctant at first, she was open to learning more. I remember sharing with her my “Clothed with The Sun” magazine from the Naturist Society. I thought this would answer questions, but instead it just created more questions from her, which was okay. I was able to convince her to go to an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica, which had a nude beach. We had so much fun and spent about half of our time at the nude beach (the other hours, we slept, went on tours, ate…etc.) We went back there five years later and have visited several clothing optional resorts since then in WI, MI, IL, IN, FL, CA, and the UK.
So why am I promoting YNA WI? Simple. When my wife and I first visited these resorts, the average age was probably about 54 years with meeting people in their 60s and 70s. Don’t get me wrong, we always have enjoyed meeting people no matter what their age, gender, background, etc. But we truly missed sharing our experiences with people our age. Fortunately, we now live in an era where the internet has helped spark the naturist lifestyle to the younger crowd. I also like the YNA organization because they believe in promoting a safe and healthy environment, educating anyone who is interested in learning more about the nudist/naturist lifestyle (through blogs and other social platforms) and finding activities that us young people would be interested to participate in.
YNAWI is officially launching on July 14th with an “Amazing Canvas Beach Party“! Come see some amazing body painting or experience what it’s like to be a human canvas. We’re also going to have swimming in the pond, volleyball and a movie screening of Act Naturally, the independent film by my friend and director, J.P. Riley. More information about the film will be in my next post.
Always in the mood to be nude,
