First Experience with Naturism : Finding Contentment and Internal Acceptance
For nearly 10 years, now the 68 year old Ms. Joy Batley, struggled with body image following an illness that left her with weight gain and being wheelchair ridden. While Joy enjoyed going without clothes alone at home, she certainly never felt comfortable doing so with others. But when she met her life partner and fellow naturist, Les Ford, he helped her see the light. While Mr. Ford had been a naturist for over 30 years when he met Ms. Batley, and first experienced the lifestyle when he visited Holkham nudist beach in Norfolk in his 20s, he introduced her to a meetup naturist group event. While Ms. Batley thought it would just be an interesting experience but certainly was apprehensive, she left with a whole new perspective and became part of the naturist community. For Ms. Batley, she realized it wasn’t about how she looked, if she was thin, fat, had stretch marks, or anything else, people just cared that she was friendly and liked her for who she was.
