It’s no surprise to many people and to my friends, that I am born with an Intersex condition and a naturist as well. I have been a nudist pretty much since pre-teen days and had no shame of my body. I’ve enjoyed being out nude and even gone skinny dipping as well. I have never gone to a nudist resort, but being from New England, I have gone to many places where I can go skinny dipping in lakes, ponds, rivers and even streams.
Being born with an intersex/DSD condition and being a nudist, I have no shame and no issues with my body. In fact I’m quite accepting of my body and all the flaws, imperfection and uniqueness in my body. Within nudism, their is a concept of body acceptance and acceptance of others. Even as someone who is born intersex/DSD, it is kind of hard to be accepted in the nudist community. That’s largely because your invisible, unknown and sometimes ignored. As an intersex/DSD nudist, It’s even harder because in the nudist community, you clearly know what male and female looks like. With me, it’s even harder because I clearly don’t fit the male and female mold. Even with my body, it’s not the typical male and typical female boy.
Even being an intersex nudist, I am a rarity within the nudist community because you have male and female nudist. Even LGBT nudist and rare trans nudist. With me, I am much more rarer within the nudist community because it’s unheard of for intersex people to be nudist. That’s because being born intersex/DSD, some have body issues and issues with themselves. As oppose to me, being a nudist and being born with an intersex/DSD condition, I don’t have any shame with my body and I don’t have any body image issues. I come to quite acceptance of my body with all it’s flaws, imperfections and uniqueness.
It’s one thing I learn as a intersex nudist to accept about my body and accept it for what it is. It’s never going to change and i have learned through nudism to like my body no matter what it looks like or what my gender is. I have to say, that I am unique in the nudist community being born with an intersex/DSD condition and not being either male or female.
