Skinny-Dipping
 
My first formal skinny-dipping experience took place at a nudist resort during a summer gathering several years ago.  Of course, it wasn’t my first time skinny-dipping, but it was the first time I encountered a “No Swimsuits Allowed” sign at a pool, so it seemed more official.  Legitimate, even.  I was young and carefree and filled with bravado, and it never occurred to me that I should apply sunscreen before exposing the entirety of my exceptionally white body to the scorching August sun.  “Baby, them shoulders are getting kind of pink!” a woman gently warned. “Honey, your cheeks are beet red!" her friend commented.  "I can’t tell if you’re blushing or burning!” As the hours passed, my skin continued to redden, and the women's concern turned to distress.  Soon, they were exchanging sunburn horror stories.  
 
“You know, Delma’s sister passed out in a lawn chair after a few too many margaritas and woke up in the burn unit of a South Carolina hospital, wrapped up like a mummy!”  
 
“Well, you know Jim drove all the way to Arizona with his big, stupid arm hanging out the window, and by the time he got there, that old arm of his looked like a buffalo wing!”
 
The AANR Skinny-Dip attracts a number of first-time skinny-dippers, so if you’re a new nudist headed to one of our participating venues on July 11, have fun, but be sure to bring sunscreen. 
 
Trust me.  Bring sunscreen.
