The weirdest thing about naturists / nudists is their really weird hang-up on sexuality.  They always make sure to let everyone know that they're an extremely anti-sex, Puritanical sort where sexual thoughts are unwelcome and no one has any sexual desire.

I'm going to guess that there were nudists before the 30s.

Well it can be disconcerting to turn a corner around a bend on a beach and see two 50 year olds going at it like high schoolers after prom.

It looks like old man river churning butter.

ummm, no.
we nudists/naturists always make sure to let everyone know that nudity =/= sexuality. that doesn't = "anti-sex". it means that being naked doesn't mean we're a public-sex crowd. any nudist organization that follows aanr rules prohibits sexual activity of any kind in any part of the facility that isn't your private quarters. these organizations are typically friendly-friendly, all-ages environments.

There's a large difference between "we're not into public sex" and "no one here is ever sexually aroused".  Every story always makes a HUGE deal about "oh, no, absolutely no one here is EVER sexually aroused by anything".

CSB: when I was a Gypsy Picker selling at flea markets and buying at auctions I had a truck full of anything you wanted. A regular Mr. Heaney from Green Acres. This lady comes up to me up at Wellfleet at the drive-in flea market and asks if I have any M*A*S*H stuff. She's all decked out in mash gear and I'm guessing she likes to do it in a cot. I say hang on, what are you looking for? She tells me she has the entire 4077 recreated on her property and she wants anything to complete her collection. I say, stay there, BRB, and duck in the tuck. I come back with a magazine with two naked girls on the cover shellacking a canoe (and that is not a metaphor) and the cover boasts that it is "The Official Organ Of The American Sunbathers Association"  and she says what has this got to do with M*A*S*H?

And I go, Hawkeye kept this under his bunk. The date on the cover is perfect for the time period, and for you, only $20.

She says ten.

I let it go for 15

Got it for a buck.

i have NEVER read what you claim to have read. what i HAVE read and experienced is that it's not a sexual environment. and if a person (especially a man, since it is far more obvious) DOES find themselves becoming aroused, then there are ways to hide such things. this i have NEVER experienced. i've been to several nudist facilities/functions, and not 1 time have i seen a guy have to run off and hide. even with the far-hotter-than-average nude ladies around. it's just something about the environment, where everyone is naked, that keeps it from being a sexually stimulating experience.

machoprogrammer: Nudists are never the ones you want to see nude


now THIS is something that some non-nudist always has to say in a nudist thread.

and it's partly true. many of my good nudist friends are not folks you would choose to see naked...heck i'm one who most would not choose to see naked.

doesn't matter. it's not about being seen by folks who want to see naked people.

but, there typically ARE folks at these places that people would want to see naked. the adage isn't 100% truth.

Actually, if you go to a nudist place, you'll find they do not avoid the topic at all. They suggest that in the event of arousal, men cover themselves with their towel until the moment passes. I've found that nudists aren't hung up on sex nearly as much as non-nudists, in general. They just want people to know it's a casual environment and not an orgy, so people understand they'll be safe. If they emphasize the non-sexual environment it's because that's a very common misconception.

well put
there has been a lot of sexual enuendo at some of the events i've attended, but never anyone acting upon it. one old lady who was on my water volleyball team bumped into me, made a comment about grabbing the rope. everyone laughed.

the club i "frequent" (i'd love to go at least once a month, but due to finances and other things i only get to go about 3 times a year) is serious about the water volleyball. i'm often intimidated because i'm no good at ANY sport.

the 5k runs are awesome! and i'm never the last to finish, so that's great.

machoprogrammer: Nudists are never the ones you want to see nude


Age old misconception.  While naturists/nudists do come in all shapes and sizes, there are quite a few fit and friendly bodies of both sexes that you may find pleasing to your eye.  When I lived in Louisiana, I went to a nudist camp just across Lake Ponchartrain from New Orleans.  We'd get a regular influx of Bourbon Street strippers, male and female, come to enjoy the sunshine and social attitude.  They followed the family friendly camp rules, however, and everyone was okay with that.  I'm certain that sexual activity occurred in the privacy of their tents, trailers and rooms they rented.  Some of the best sex I ever had when I was single was at this nudist camp (Indian Hills in Slidell), but it was always between consenting adults and totally private.

The mind of a naturist, or nudist, if you prefer, isn't always geared towards sex, exhibitionism or voyeurism as so many smarmy magazine cartoons may lead you to believe.  Just because everybody's nude doesn't mean everybody's horny.  You make great friendships at nudist camps.  You socialize on an equal level without clothes being a factor.  Plumbers and doctors, for example, socialize in a balanced way that probably wouldn't happen in the textile world.  You will laugh together.  You play games, and not just volleyball either!.  You drop all the facades, all the social masks, you learn to accept people for who they are, be they young, old, fat, black, white, Asian, handicapped, and so forth.  And yes, I've seen some incredibly obese people at the camps I've been too.  It's so hard for these people to find clothes that fit comfortably, and to be in a place where they can feel comfortable naked while making friends there is wonderful for one's self-esteem.  On the other hand, you may find yourself talking to a woman straight out of Playboy and after a few minutes of conversation you realize her body isn't being objectified any longer and that you've become really interested in what she has to say.  You find the true person behind all that make-up and designer clothes.  Your faith in humanity is restored at a naturist or nudist camp.  It is a place filled with good-hearted laughter and non-judgmental attitudes.

I think he's referring to the idea that nudism is all about freedom, but has a strict set of rules that everyone at the camps must follow.  Like the freedom of owning a home, but doing so under the strict rules of an HOA.

yeah, i got it now. thanks

unfortunately that's the way things are. it's incredibly difficult to find a place where you can be fully free while nude (if you know such a place please tell me!), and incredibly difficult to find a new home, or older home in a good safe neighborhood, in a non-hoa community.

we do live in an hoa community. we looked at a LOT of houses in our price range. the houses in our price range that weren't in an hoa were one or more of the following: dumps, really far drive from work (as it is i'm still 20+ miles from work! these were FURTHER), in bad or at least getting-run-down neighborhoods, in need of many repairs/upgrades, poorly insulated, adjacent to super busy streets (dangerous and noisy), etc, and these people want about as much for 20-50 year old houses as they do for brand new houses.  i suppose we could've found a piece of land and had a house built, but with land prices we would've ended up with a very basic tiny house to stay in budget.

If you want to see naked people, go to a strip club. If you want to be a naked person, go to a nudist resort, or nude beach, or where ever.

It's the same thing as watching a sport versus playing a sport. If you want to watch great players, go watch a pro team. If you want to play, go play - with your trick knee, bum hip, terrible free throw, etc.

Watching and participating are completely different experiences with completely different motivations.

Untrue. What naturists are quick to refute is that sexuality is any more or less a part of their lifestyle than yours.

I think for me if I was going to attend some event or join some group where clothing was not worn I would want it to be of a sexual nature. I do not really understand the aspect of going to a location to be with other nude people. I pretty much go about the house nude, but I really don't see any freedom in it, I just think it is pointless to put on clothes if I am not going to leave the house. I am pretty sure I would not have any erection issues if I were to go to one of these events, because I would need the prospect of the possibility of sex to become excited. I just think I would enjoy a more sexual oriented nude event, because hanging around nude would just feel like Tuesday to me.

I did once have to grab my towel quickly, but it had more to do with something my girlfriend-at-the-time said than with anything that happened at my resort.  :)

One large naturist club in England advertises a special "Family Day", on which children under 16 are admitted free of charge. It wouldn't be so creepy if they didn't also mention that single male visitors are welcome that day, for a payment of £20.

i understood what you meant...and it still makes it "not your cup of tea". and that's perfectly ok. golf isn't my cup of tea, so i don't see any point in doing that clothed or nude.
