Sex Offenders and Naturism.

I found this post on another site.  I won’t say which site but i did verify that the post did exist:

I don’t have any other place to ask this question because I am afraid of being banned or bitched out so I’ll just ask this here and see what happens.

Several weeks ago I finally convinced a female friend to try a local naturist resort with me. So upon arriving we both had to give or IDs to someone to register for a day visit. Things seemed to be going well and we went to the showers after being given a small tour. We had literally walked out of the shower and onto the promenade when the supervisor came up to us and told us that my female friend had to leave. When I asked why the supervisor said that my friend was flagged as a sex offender. Of course I was shocked, I knew she had a record but I had never asked. I was very upset that they wanted to kick her out. So I left with her because I was insulted at the tone of the supervisor and the fact that several men walked up with angry looks on their faces and a tone that they were ready to become violent if we didn’t leave immediately.

After we left my friend told me about her past. The incident had happened over 14 years ago in another state and she had not been in trouble since then. I won’t go into details but i will say the incident did not involve child porn or children in any form or fashion. After the explanation I was even more incensed by the way we had been treated and I was thinking of suing. My friend bade me to let it go and i did. The whole incident has stayed on my mind though, but I decided to find some info first. Are there any naturist resorts that allow for sex offenders to actually join and stay there?

I have heard that the AANR affiliated resorts are the ones that ban any and all sex offenders, but that private non-affiliated resorts may allow sex offenders. I just want to enjoy nudism with my friend. I know she was really hurt and embarrassed by what happened, and I just want to help her. Does anyone here have any ideas or info that can help me?

The first thing I find interesting is that the poster fears being banned from nudist/naturist forums or being mistreated by fellow naturists just for asking a question about this.  Are the forums really that mean spirited?

The second thing: As a supporter of free business I think the resort has the right to ban certain people if they do not meet certain requirements.

The third thing: While I support the right of any business to makes their own rules, I find it frightening that you have to give your ID and then be subject to someone delving deep into your personal history like that, and then judging you by what they see.  It really makes you wonder just exactly does any resort you deal with do with such info they find and how much harm they can bring to you.

The fourth thing: At a time where I see so many resorts and naturists complaining about lack of new members and financial problems, I find it to be somewhat silly to ban people for their past from joining or visiting a naturist resort for even a day.  How do they expect to get any business if they block so many people?

The fifth thing: The poster seems to accuse the AANR of basically being a bunch of jerks and basically enforcing rules about sex offenders on just about any naturist resort that is a member of their group.  But he also wonders if non-affiliated resorts have easier rules.  I have heard other people complain over time about the AANR being somewhat draconian with their rules.  I don’t know how much of this is true though.

Well if anyone who follows this blog has any answers or opinions then post away!

 

How to Raise Naturist Kids Part 1

YNA series on how to raise naturist kids — an interview with naturist families and addressing a common question about naturism and dress codes! When parents decide to raise naturist kids or introduce their children to naturism, there are some common questions and concerns that tend to arise. Since we occasionally get emails from parents…

Naked Social Experiment in Italy

Naked Woman parades through streets of Italy

According to the Daily Star Online, the brazen lady was taking part in a social experiment and was fined £3,000 for public indecency.

The Star also reports that one of the men put his arm around the woman who brushed off his creepy advances.

The provocative female reportedly addressed the group of men saying: “It’s a social experiment, to show that we’re all good people.

“You are good, aren’t you, boys?”

Okay…not exactly the way to promote Naturism.  More like a good way to promote being arrested.  Meanwhile in other news a couple in the same area started having full on sex in the public view and no one gave a damn.  Yeah I ain’t moving to Italy any time soon.

Naked Eclipse Party!!!

Naked Eclipse Party and Other Strange Rituals around the World

The total solar eclipse on Monday is a much-anticipated event in the U.S., and aside from the conventional viewing practices, there are groups and people who have strange ways of celebrating the rare occasion. Take for example a nudist club in Lonedell, Missouri who’s having an eclipse viewing party.

The nudist club is called the Forty Acre Club founded in 1950, and the only remaining nudist club in Missouri.

The club is well-prepared for the eclipse day as well. Board member Tom Morrissey says the club has five sites open for RV’s and nearly 12 sites available for tents on eclipse day. All the cabins are booked. There’s only one obvious rule for those joining the club in welcoming and viewing the eclipse, of course: they have to be naked.

Morissey said: “You have to use common sense based on weather and everything. In our pool area, common grounds, nudity is required.”

Morissey also added that the 40 Acre Club will be joining the nearby St. Clair, Mo. in turning the eclipse into a fun three-day festival along with several other cities in the path of totality. The merriment started on Friday with eclipse themed dances in the pavilion, tournaments, potluck and pool party.

The nudist club’s way of celebrating the eclipse may be odd, but they are not alone as there are other strange eclipse rituals all over the world.

Since the eclipse is passing over my hometown tomorrow I plan to be nude somewhere outside during the eclipse!

Protesting for Naturism/Nudism.

Its a idea.  Let’s think about it for a moment.  And yes, I am being serious here.  Maybe we should start protesting.  It would give us great visibility and help spread the word about naturism/nudism.  But maybe protest is too strong, too angry.  Maybe the idea of a Naturist March would be a good idea.  Yeah that’s the ticket.

Since the gays, the non-binary gendered. and the Social Justice Communists have been holding rallies, protests, and out right riots as of late i started thinking, “Why don’t we stage a peaceful march in support of the Naturist Community?”  We are definitely a minority, and maybe we could claim some kind of victim status (although personally i do not want to do that).  We could start a peaceful march during one of the Naked Bike Rides and spread from there.  Now i know what the next question is: “What do we protest/march for?”

  1.  More Nude Spaces.  I suggest when we march we claim that we are asking for more nude beaches, trails and parks where we can go nude.  Since we are paying our tax dollars to maintain these areas, we as naturists should be allowed to enjoy them in the nude as well.
  2. Change the Indecency Laws.  Right now a number of laws say you can be arrested for being seen nude via the window inside your house or being seen in the nude on your own property.  These laws need to be changed.
  3. Speaking Out.  We need to speak out and talk about being nude and the health benefits of it.  The march/protest would be the perfect chance to do so.
  4. Body Positive Outlook/Movement.  This one is totally optional.  While it will probably garner support from the SJWs and feminists, I am not sure I want their help since they are a bunch of communists and special snowflakes.  They’ll make us look more like loons then sane people.

Well that’s all i can think of for right now.  But i do wonder would any of us be willing to actually protest in the nude?

A Fashion Idea for Naturist Men.

So you can call this a funny or satirical if you want, and it kinda is.  But i would also like people to seriously consider this idea.

I was thinking about Naturist fashion for men, and this idea came to me specifically for married men:

Penis rings!  I have to admit i thought it was funny at first but i discovered that in ancient times some cultures actually had men wearing these things.  Now yes i know there is a gay connotation to these things but i was thinking this.  Straight married men can wear one at the base of the shaft as is shown in picture 1 or right below the glans as in picture 2.  You could have them made exactly like a wedding ring.  And add one ring for each decade you have been married to your lovely wife.  You know the more i think of it, I think female Naturists would love this idea for their husbands.  You ladies could go out and buy your hubby one of these rings and even have it engraved in some cute or funny way.  Make sure he wears it to the Naturist resort.  It can be a great conversation starter, a reminder to your husband, lest he have a roaming heart, and heck it’ll act like a warning device for all those women out there looking to take your man.

Now since i’m not married I’ll let you married folks figure out the rest on this, but i think this is a great idea.  A pity i can’t make any money off of it.
