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!

 

The Great thing about Naturism and Politics.

The great thing about Naturism and Politics is that we never have to worry about Politics affecting Naturism in any form or fashion.  No matter who gets elected they never seem to worry about us or promise us anything.  It’s great to be part of a minority that no one has to pander or promise to.

Become a naturist and never have to worry about politics ever again!  Maybe that should be a new slogan for us!
