Denial of the body WOn’t be an issue in our family. There was no sense of taboo with regards to being unclothed, nor was there a feeling that something should have beenhidden.

As we grew older, my loving husband and I grew closer and as time went on, we became a couple. As such, we were ready to explore each other in a other accountable ways also.
One day, they will grow up and find partners of their own. As our children develop, we wish to educate them the same values and trust they’ll learn to be responsible and caring adults.
We can only expect that they’ll find others who’ll accept their bodies and will live in complete acceptance of their natural state if that’s what they wish.

The Blacks Beach Bares Return:
“I had wanted to see all the nude supermodels,” Dave Cole said when asked what prompted him to first visit Black’s Beach in San Diego back in the mid to late 1990s. Naturally, no supermodels ever showed up.
The crowd was mostly guys, perhaps a few elderly girls, and to a 21-year-old had who’d just gotten out of the Navy a few months earlier, 30 would have already been considered old.
According to his group’s website, there is no simple access to Black’s Beach. Entering at La Jolla Shores meant a northbound hike and entering at Torrey Pines meant you had to trek south. There’s a sign on the Torrey Pines trail to the north which says, “Area Closed: Nudity Prohibited.” That meant you were close.
However, Dave had spent several hours on the bus only getting to Black’s Beach the first time, followed by a long arduous journey down the cliffs.
“After such as long journey, I was determined to enjoy the beach,” he said. But getting up the courage to eventually worm from his short pants and get in the water took . He surmised individuals were observing him, but did not know for sure.
Dave did not grow up in a naturist household but spent “some time nude” when alone at home. Something inside him wanted to try going into a nude beach, to be naked outside in nature.
“I kept going to Black’s every year after that, as much as three to four times a summer.
What really turned things around was the day I discovered a co worker there. We were both walking towards one another. I thought, “Oh . . . sh-. I was going to get in trouble at work.”
But to his surprise, his co-worker had been thinking precisely the same thing. “He kept encouraging me to sit with his pals and I felt uneasy, being a single man as his group of friends were mainly couples.” Eventually, Dave brought a female friend along to the beach, and after that both of them started sitting with this group.
“It was the late 1990s, and we’d found that on this beach a group of single men patrolling and hitting on the single women, or at least leering close enough to make them feel uneasy. It’d continually be the same people over the course of ten years, and while these single men kept returning, the women never did.”
Dave’s new buddies took it upon themselves to police the sand in powerful but non-confrontational ways. If some perv were to park him self down beside a woman, someone would sit in his line of vision and place an open umbrella down in between. When the girls began becoming tighter with each other, it allowed for growth within our group.
It was in 1999 when a giant grill showed through to the plage. No one knew where ‘d come from but we requested the lifeguards if we could utilize it. They accepted; after all it was not theirs to give away. And ever since that Labor Day Weekend, barbecues became a regular action and a group was born. There were socials at friends’ houses, but these socials were not constantly naturist related, so hence they did not manage like a non-landed naturist club, nor has it ever been a club. The scene was mainly centered on the strand: picnics every summer weekend, and keeping the plage clean. The group drew in more folks until there were a pretty even amount of girls and men.
The only drawback, Dave says, is that because they do not require membership, most of the plage goers tend to take the beach for given. Black’s Beach, as a bare beach, has consistently been here and had been a cultural touchstone in the 1970s, so when it gets threatened by legal action, it is still an uphill climb to gain support for the cause. Additionally, though naturism has a long, illustrious history, very few if any nude sand-goers understood about it. In fact AANR did not really show much support for the bare beach movement for years.
