Skinny Dipping – How to Convince Your Friends to Do It

Ever wanted to feel that exhilarating rush of being naughty and nude in the open, shielded only a semi reflecting sheet of transparent water? Well, that’s skinny dipping for you. If you know the rules, taking a skinny dip can be a lot of flirty fun, even for a shy beginner.

How to Skinny Dip

Have you ever skinny dipped with your friends? While skinny dipping has remained a fantasy for most people, it’s one of those fantasies that are worth bringing to life.

Skinny dipping – Taking the leap

Skinny dipping is a rush that feels so unreal and giddy. And the touch of water caressing your bare skin can be a high that’s worth adding into your bucket list.

But how does it happen? How do an entire group of friends just take off all their clothes and jump into a pool of water, be it a lake or a shallow seashore without as much as a second thought?

That’s really the issue. Skinny dips are just not a spur of the moment thing all the time. Usually, for a successful skinny dip, it needs to be premeditated and planned.

How to skinny dip with friends

Skinny dipping alone is just no fun, why, you do that every day in your bath tub.

So if you really want to enjoy a good skinny dip, you need the company of a few good friends.

Skinny dipping is something that’s been indulged in, since forever.

It’s only in the last few decades that we’ve all started feeling really insecure about our own physiques and little cute abnormalities in our bodies.

Things to do before skinny dipping

For a successful skinny dip, you need to prepare yourself in the head. Here are a few tips that could help you.

Lose your insecurities

One of the biggest reasons why many men and women don’t skinny dip is because they assume they look bad in the buff. But come on, if Peter Griffin thinks he looks sexy naked, how bad could you look? At the end of the day, it’s only your insecurity that makes you look bad. Lose the insecurity and feel good about your own body, and you’ll only get more attractive with every passing minute!

Plan the moment

If you really want to skinny dip with your friends, there are two ways to go about it. You can be spontaneous, or the skinny dip can be premeditated.

a. Spontaneous skinny dipping

Stripping your clothes off spontaneously never really helps if you’re the only one taking your clothes off. So if you want this to work, you have to have a couple of friends on your side. Convince them to shed their clothes too, and just like a herd of sheep, everyone else will follow you eventually!

b. Premeditated skinny dipping

Sometimes, spontaneous skinny dipping just doesn’t work. What if one of your friends is wearing torn underwear? Or gasp, what if a few girls haven’t shaved their legs and God knows what else? Of course, you’ll never know these details in the first place. You wouldn’t be able to convince that friend to skinny dip in a million years!

To avoid such circumstances, it’s always better to reveal the plan a day in advance if possible. Are you guys heading out to a friend’s pool the next day, or a little vacation in a nearby island? [Read: Naughty fun on the beach] Whatever it is, just spread the word. Excitedly tell everyone that all of you are going skinny dipping the next morning. Now your joke would confuse them and they’ll wonder if there’s a possibility of skinny dipping. So there’s a good chance they’ll all come prepared anyways. Just in case!

Taking the plunge into skinny dipping

Skinny dipping is fun, bonding and exciting. And it’s worth all the planning. So before you actually skinny dip, convince a couple of your friends, at least one other girl and guy, to skinny dip with you.

Don’t skinny dip when everyone’s busy and excited doing their own thing. Wait for the mood to sober down until everyone’s just waiting for something exciting to come up. And when the moment’s right, announce it out to the world and see how they react.

In every group, there will be a few people who will be taken aback and be completely against it. Leave these skinny dipping party poopers aside for now. They’ll come around themselves later. Excitedly convince those people who are grinning and yet being hesitant.

At the same time, start taking your tee shirt and pants off. On cue, let the friends you’ve convinced earlier take their clothes off too.

Don’t take off your underwear just yet, and save it for last. Get into the water and then throw your underwear out, and let the few friends who have come into the water do the same. [Read: Public flashing confessions]

Once you do this and start having fun splashing around in the water, your other friends wouldn’t be able to resist it. And before you know it, you’ll be hearing a lot of naked cannonballs falling into the water!

And there you have it, a complete guide to skinny dip and get your friends to skinny dip with you!

Things to know before skinny dipping

While skinny dipping is a lot of fun, it can be a rude shock if you don’t follow these pointers on the things you should know before skinny dipping.

Do you trust your friends?

Indulge in skinny dipping only if you’re with friends you completely trust. It’s not fun with strangers and even an accidental touch can seem like a sexual threat. And at times, you never know what a new friend’s intentions are.

Never involve cameras

Make sure none of your friends are snapping photos. If you’re with a close group of friends, they’d listen to you if you tell them not to snap any pictures. You never know in whose hands a picture could turn up years later.

Know the laws of the state

Skinny dipping is illegal in most parts of the world. So if you really want to skinny dip, do it when you’re on a vacation in a place where it’s legal, or in the comfort of a friend’s private pool.

Times when you should completely avoid skinny dipping

While being aware of the things to know before skinny dipping is a good idea, there are times when you should never skinny dip. Use these tips as a reference the next time you want to get naked in the water.

Drunk skinny dipping

While most people swear by drunken skinny dipping, it’s definitely not safe. Having a few shots may ease your nervousness and shed your inhibitions, but it can also make you less aware of what’s going on around you. And that’s never a good thing when you’re naked with other people.

When you’re feeling unsafe

Don’t skinny dip when you’re feeling unsafe. It’s alright to feel awkward, but if getting naked makes you nervous and panicky, perhaps skinny dipping is not for you. And sometimes, it’s better to trust our own instincts more than anything else.

You’re with a lusty friend

All your friends may be really sweet and nice, but is there someone who’s been trying to hit on you sexually or get physical with you in your group? Now you really shouldn’t be hanging out with this person in the first place, especially if he’s crossing the line all the time. But nevertheless, if this friend’s pestering you to get naked, it’s better to avoid skinny dipping. While skinny dipping is liberating and fun with friends, a lusty friend could be asking you to get naked only to take advantage of the situation.

Now that you know everything about skinny dipping with friends, follow these rules and you’ll see how much fun a good skinny dip can be!
