The First Time


This might be something you’ve always wanted to do. Or it might be that this is something your partner or a friend would like you to try. Perhaps you skinny dipped when you were young or in a private pool and you thought it was great. However you might be feeling apprehensive about your first experience of social nudism. You might have to convince someone else. You might even have to convince yourself! And you might have lots of questions. Don’t worry—we can help.


The ACT Nudist Club offers a friendly, welcoming environment where you can truly be yourself. Our members cover the full range of body shapes and sizes and if you're concerned that yours is/are too big, small, flabby, the wrong colour, missing, then don’t worry, so are ours! The wonderful thing about social nudity is that everyone is on the same level. We all have blemishes and imperfections, thank goodness!


If you are interested in visiting our club to see what it is like we will arrange a mutually convenient meeting point and a member will meet you. We’ll show you around the grounds, the pool and our other facilities. You will not be expected to be nude straight away if you’re not comfortable with that. You can take it at your own pace. A visit or two will tell you (and us) whether the club is for you. Often a lifetime of conditioning can take a while to overcome, but in our experience we generally find that if the weather is right and the visitor feels comfortable (which is our aim), the clothing doesn’t stay on for long! Sometimes the best way to start swimming is to dive straight in. But as you can imagine, we want to make sure everyone is able to feel comfortable—so we don’t need gawkers and we’ll soon know if that’s all someone is interested in and they will be escorted out.


Speaking of the weather, although we’re nudists we’re not silly, and if the weather is cold, as it can be in Canberra, we’re dressed! Equally, if the hot sun is blazing, we’re in the shade!
