Clothing Optional or Clothing Not Allowed??? Any Preferance? .

When visiting a Nudist Resort, I would prefer that all participants agree to Not Wear Clothing at all.

It really seems to put everyone on the same playing field if everyone is naked. It can seem a little awkward when some are dressed and some are not. If there are a lot of people dressed, than that is when I notice that I am not dressed.

It seems that there are themes for a lot of the dances and parties at nudist resorts. People attend the parties and dress according to the "theme". I wish sometime the theme was just a"Birthday-Suit" theme.

I understand the weather sometimes prohibits people from being completely undressed ... but when the situation allows, I think everyone should be naked at a nudist resort. Most resorts seem to be clothing optional, I wish most places would have a rule that nudity is required.

Does anyone else prefer Clubs & Resorts that require participants agree to Not Wear Clothing in General???

What are your favorite Clubs that expect you to be Naked at all times ??

I totally agree. And I guess all member of this site will agree. Some decades ago I remember at FKK camping sites the rule to be naked over a certain temperature was enforced.
Times have changed.

And I see in Europe more and more textile people on official naturist beaches. I guess this means we can go to their beaches as well in our way. Although I am still too chicken to really do that...

Well, there isn't much point going to a nudist place if you're not going to partake. Most places have an optional sign up with poolside being mandatory nude. I don't really have a problem with clothed people present - though it could be intimidating for newbies like me if people are clothed.

This topic has been discussed before. If you would like to have new people join in then it is crazy to require everyone be nude. I have known a number people especially women that were very nervous about going nude and went to be with their significant other or friends and check it out. After a while they became comfortable and lost the clothing but requiring them to lose it right from the start would have made them just not go at all. Additionally some people are comfortable at various temperatures while others find it chilly (my wife being one). Why should those that find it chilly be required to be uncomfortable while enjoying time with their spouse who does not?

There are merits to both sides of this discussion. I would prefer it to be nude only however before my wife and I got married I took her to a CO club. It didn't take her long to disrobe because she started feeling out of place as most everyone else was nude. She is not in to the lifestyle as much as I am but she did get the opportunity to choose. She will go with me to clubs but I believe that if she was forced to disrobe at the very beginning she would not be as open to the idea as she is now.

We prefer "nude" clubs and resorts but often visit clothing optional clubs. Due to proximity, that's what we have closest to us and there is only one resort nearby that has a mandatory nude policy but it's only around the pool deck. Most clubs and resorts have gone to the clothing optional policy because they want new people to come and try it and as many of you know, being naked for the first time around others is quite intimidating and not easy to do.

We visit many clothing optional clubs and resorts but the vast majority of those visiting are nude and that's what we prefer. The only issue I have with nude mandatory resorts and clubs is that I don't want them telling me I have to be naked if I'm cold or had enough sun. My wife is careful in the sun and though enjoys being nude, is usually under an umbrella most of the day and then slips on a SPF shirt when she's cold. I don't want some nudist Nazi giving her grief for being covered because she's had enough sun or is cold.

The topic is probably as old as nudism itself!

The counter argument here is that if too many women are partially or completely covered, this could deter other women from undressing. And pretty soon you end up with a nudist environment where people naturally tend to stay covered outside the pool area. At least that's the stance some resorts take.
A middle ground to me is allowing the first few visits to be clothing-optional; and then for management to address the person - in a non-confrontational manner - about why he/she still remains covered after several visits.

My personal philosophy from Day 1 has been: "Completely naked all of the time." I've even gone as far as asking a resort for "permission to check in nude" so that I could disrobe in the parking lot and just be able to be nude from the moment I arrived. That's just my personal philosophy: nudism is to be nude and embrace the experience of being open and free; not tip-toeing around it. Newbies notwithstanding.

I'm not a firm believer in "mandatory nudity everywhere right away." It can make visits too challenging for newcomers; and covering up for protection too problematic. But I do believe in encouraging nudity and making the pool area mandatory.

I went to a C/O resort once and decided it wasn't for me. When I visited more "rustic" resorts where nudity was widely practiced, I made them my "go to" nudist venues.
When I lived in GA it was Bell Acres and Cedar Creek. 99% of the people there were nude; not just around the pool area but everywhere else on resort grounds. I found it also very beneficial to bring my daughter to venues where other children also went nude. I'm not sure these resorts enforced nudity since we went nude anyway; but I did once witness the BA owner address someone who was not nude - in a pleasant and friendly manner. No need to get all "Gestapo" about it IMHO; I naturally assume that people who stay covered have a personal reason for doing so that can be discussed.

My preference is clothing not allowed but completely understand why clothing optional is appropriate sometimes. I don't mind clothing optional as long as the majority of people participate, and those who don't are not just there to get their jollies.
