Okay - I am sure some level of this has been debated here - but I don't recall if this ever covered families. I have always wanted to go to a nudist beach/resort/etc...but just haven't had really the time or money, or whatever. I end up using vacation time typically to visit family, etc & I guess the draw hasn't been large enough yet. Anywya - Dh & I were talking about this again recently, I still don't have him convinced, as I am far more comfortable with my body & nudity than he is . So with baby on the way, I have been trying to research family friendly places...and to be honest I am a little scared. Many links (which I am far too afraid to click on) seem to be to child pronography & I am now rethinking ever taking children to a nudist resort or beach. When we were in Europe, we saw lots of kids under het age of 10 naked at the beach. I actually thought it was nice, as I remember really enjoying the freedom of nudity at that age & being sad to give it up - no sexuality issues, no hang ups, just felt good to be naked. As good as that is - I am thinking I want to kep nudity for home if so many links are out there to child porn, because I think there is bad correlation going on & it scares me who may be attracted to these family nudist places. It also makes me wonder if I should rethink it for us in general.

OPINIONS please?????

You might feel better if places like that only allowed in people with families (if they exist, I have no idea), but that's still no guarantee that the adults would not be into exploiting children, via porn, or worse. You always hear about the people you think are "upstanding members of the community" with families who turn out to be molesters.

Maybe plan a trip to Europe with your child in a few years, since that is more common there?

I don't know. It's a tough call. I'd be inclined to say stay at home, but I couldn't ever bring myself to go to a nudist beach. It's not that I think it's bad for others, but I'm just way too freaking modest.

I couldn't go to a nudist beach personally, i just couldn't be naked around strangers, but thats just me though.

I don't think i could take my kids (obviously when i have kids) to a nudist beach (even if it is family friendly) because i'd be too scared especially hearing about all the perverts out there etc, it would make my skin crawl knowing that someone like that could be watching my children naked. But again that's just me, and my opinion. Just thinking about something like that happening makes me get cold shivers up my spine.

Some channel, I want to say HBO but I might be wrong, did a show on nudism. As I remember there was a lake resort for families that made sure to screen the people that stayed there. (Also anyone who misbehaved was promptly asked to leave.) All in all it seemed a pretty fun place for people comfortable with being naked.

I'm sure there are more places like that around. Maybe finding one that screened the visitors would put you more at ease.

I think as long as its a reputable resort you are fine. Nudists are parents just like the rest of us just naked lol I dont think they would ever intentionally put their children in a potentially harmful situation. I am sure there are lots of rules to follow at these places and most often they do not allow single people to be there. If anything suspicious or lewd occurs its probably dealt with appropriatly. Everyone just wants to enjoy there stay and there is zero tolerance for perverts!

Well the research I have done does show some will allow single women, but generally non allow single men...and all check baggage, etc & you are required to check cell phones & all other recording devices at the front desk, etc. They are fairly strict from what I have seen & children are not to be left unattended ever, etc....which I wouldn't do anyway. I don't think it would bother me with an infant - I guess it may be one of those things I would have to check out as the child ages & see how I feel & if anything felt off to me - I would obviously leave.

I really do appreciate all the input. I do think however as nice as you all are here - I may have a stronger reaction when my child gets to an age to maybe mention it to gramma or someone else. I come from a VERY conservative family....but I guess you could never tell by talking to me.

WOW single women can go but not men?

How sexist is that?? A single women can be a sex offender too,just like a man who is in a marriage can.Sex offenders know no marital status or sex.

If it is something you really want to do then I would do it because sex offenders are everywhere,we can't get away from them.

I honestly wouldn't do it even if I were comfortable with my body and being nude. I still don't think I would do it even if the nude beach were for families and families only because how do you know that someone in one of the families that is there isn't a pedophile? How do you know that while his family has their back turned that he won't be snapping shots of naked children? Possibly your children. I saw on a PP something like "they require you to check cell phones and all other recording devices at the front desk." I am sure that it wouldn't be too hard to sneak something in. If you are that determined you will find a way. I think going to a nude beach if you are comfortable with yourself is fine but, I just couldn't take my children.

You could take your child to the park and have someone snap photos,you could post a pic of your child online and have some pervert getting off on it.

I know they aren't naked in the park but not all sex offenders like NAKED children,some get off on fully dressed kids too.I totally understand not feel comfortable,but the sad realitly is,we can never fully protect our kids from these people,the teacher up the school could be a sex offender who just hasn't gotten caught yet,which is why if it meant a lot to me to go to a nudist beach I would,because sex offenders are often at the places you least expect them to be,and a child doesn't have to be naked for them to get off on them

I thought I should adress this particular question. I am certian people can sneak all kinds of things in typical life - but one thing to keep in mind is that it is MUCH harder to sneak a camera or anything else when you aren't clothed. Even more so than at the typical beach. I think it would be far more likely someone would get a pic of your little one at the beach than at these places where even if his family's back is turned, mine won't be & neither will others.... I do happen to think after researching more that it would highly unlikely anyone would actually get a photo....as it would be frowned on by EVERYONE else there & incredibly hard to conceal as I said, when you don't have pants, shirt, etc to hide it in.

I'm no nudist, but if that's a lifestyle you enjoy, I don't think perverts are any more reason to avoid it than it is a reason to avoid church or Boy Scouts or anything else. People who avoid getting in cars because there might be a fatal crash are called phobic, but people see nothing wrong with obsessing about sexual abuse. It's not healthy![/b]


Only you know your comfort level.. but I wouldn't want perverts to be the problem.. just knowing your own boundaries.
