Hi, I am Michael, originally from the Philippines and currently living in Myanmar. I have a degree in Biology but I am a Math teacher in a privately-owned primary school in Yangon. I was living in China before coming here and I have spent a third of my life living overseas. I love world cinema; especially the movies from Iran and South Korea. I am in my mid-30s. I prefer to be single because I still want to travel and stay in different places.
How and at what age did you become a naturist?
Being brought up in a conservative Asian culture, I’ve never known a concept like naturism exists until 5 years ago. I was browsing online, accidentally stumbled on the truenudists.com website and I was really shocked. Then I started doing some research about it, then started practicing it myself. The first naturist I met is from India three years ago.Is naturism allowed in your country and what’s the public opinion?
No, it is certainly not allowed. I think that the majority of the people probably don’t even know about it.
Do you consider yourself a naturist, a nudist or an occasional nudist?
I think I can consider myself as a naturist. I love to be outdoor with other naturists, enjoying nature and each other’s company.
Yes, of course I do! Naturists are one of the friendliest people I’ve met. Age gap doesn’t matter to me. There’s always something that we can talk about.
Reading about the philosophy of naturism will really help. If you understand why people do this, then it would be easier for you to also ‘blend’ with them.
I hope people will understand the true meaning of naturism, especially here in Asia where being nude is always equated to sex.
