A nudist mum has found a new role as a sex coach after losing her job earlier this year due to the pandemic.
Molly Spock, 32, grew up hating the feel of clothes on her skin, and always preferred to be nude when at home.
After embracing public nudism at a resort back in 2009 - where everything from eating meals to playing tennis was done without clothes - Molly is now encouraging others to do the same, saying it not only feels more connected to herself, but also the environment around her.
Molly, from Los Angeles, California, now even goes hiking in the nude, having posed for a naked photoshoot next to a motorway by Joshua Tree National Park.
She said: "I was raised with a lot of personal freedom and always had a really hard time with certain fabrics on my skin like wool or anything scratchy and non-breathable.
"I always remove tags on my shirts and trousers because they irritate my skin and make me feel really uncomfortable. When I'm naked, I like not having to worry about clothing being comfortable.
"One of the first public places I was naked was at a nudist resort in Palm Springs in 2009. I was a little nervous driving there, but once I walked in and saw how relaxed everyone was in their bodies, I immediately felt right at home."
After losing her waitressing job, Molly started sex coaching this year, as well as working as a yoga instructor.
She admitted she 'loves sex' and 'loves talking about sex', and as a sex coach hopes to help others find their 'sexual power', offering them the freedom to express their erotic desires by practicing touch and roleplay with them.
Molly also started offering professional cuddling services, which involves intertwining legs and arms with clients to release oxytocin and relieve stress.
"After losing my job, I had a lot of free time to sit with myself and ask what I wanted to do with my life. I love sex and I love talking to people about sex, and I also love touch," she said.
"I believe touch and sex are essential to the human experience - it's like water and food. I want to help others find their sexual power and unleash the healing that intimacy provides.
"I'm only just starting out but it's going well. It's special to watch someone become more in love with themselves with each session."
Molly told her partner Louis, 34, early on in their relationship about her lifestyle, and he has now joined her by being naked at beaches, hot springs and while out on walks.
Her young daughter, however, prefers to wear clothes - although Molly believes it's important to show her that alternative lifestyles can be 'amazing'.
She continued: "My daughter is only three so she doesn't have much of an opinion on naturism yet. It's funny because I'm naked all the time in my home but she prefers to wear clothing.
"She doesn't enjoy being naked as much as I do which is totally fine. She loves to get dressed up and put make-up on whereas I like to wear nothing on my body or face.
"It's good to show her that doing something outside of the norm and taking that leap into the unknown is amazing."
Molly believes naturism can be both 'beautiful and scary', but finds the community 'respectful and non-judgmental'.
She said she doesn't consider any of the attention she receives to be negative, saying: "I love when people look at me when I'm naked in public. I'm somewhat of an exhibitionist and attract a lot of attention.
"I can feel my body ageing. My boobs aren't as perky as they used to be, my stomach isn't as tight, and I'm getting more wrinkles on my face each year. However, I find myself becoming more confident with being nude in private and in public the older I get.
"I was insecure as a teenager and young adult but I just don't care as much as I used to. I feel the most confident I've ever been in my skin and I thank ageing for that mental shift."
Molly added: "When I'm nude, I am in my element and feel my most authentic. I feel sexy and confident which I think stems from there being nothing to hide behind.
"I look down at my naked body and see every single part of me. It makes me feel so connected to myself and the environment around me. I also like to walk barefoot and feel the earth underneath my feet."
