Have you experience something similar from other nudists in a socially nude setting?

Good post. Can we add something about how to also not turn others of in a virtual setting, like TN. I am shocked and offended by how many times each day I am asked about my wife and family in extemly inappropriate ways. We are all here for different reasons. For us, it is to talk to and learn from other likeminded people. TN is a far better resource then most online, but there is clearly a difference in the nudist community between those who are and those who lurk behind the keyboard.

12. "Encouraging" newbies to undress.

Even with the best intentions it can easily be misinterpreted as you just trying to get/see the person naked. I would say only encourage someone after you've established some kind of rapport with them.

what am i missing on this site - what has the level of clothing got to do with anything. Textile or naturist it is simple, be nice, be social don't assume anything you wouldn't if the person was clothed or was a different sex race or physical ability.. We do not need a naturist behaviour code we have one it is called being respectful of others and aware of self. In other words it is the same behaviour code of decent textiles , decent people full stop. please stop trying to make us something different to the rest of a civilised humanity.As for never compliment somebody OMG, You see someone and say hi you look great today it makes their day, you don't say i like your tits love. Do we need to be told this?

Yes. Unfortunately there are some out there that need to be told this.
Case in point. My brother-in-law invited me to a bar. It didn't take long for him to start his flirting with the girls in there. I couldn't believe what was coming out of his mouth. I asked him do you really think that's going to work? His response was and he honestly believed that " they love it.". I could clearly see on the expressions on these fine ladies' faces that, no, they don't. But he just could not get a clue on that.
Yes. Some need to be told. Educated. Taught respect. And plane and simply, "get a f*****g clue". He and others like him are truly an embarrassment to the male species. Whether clothed or not.

No offence to any Americans on this site, but the above is a complete load of crap ! Where on this planet do you think that you have the right to set rules on what naturism is about ? Yes there are some guys, mostly straight that think with their dicks and not their brains and make it plainly obvious what their intent is, yet, simple common sense tells you that in a nudist environment, the same does not apply.

I agree with one of the comments, that there are some men who really DO need educating on how to be appropriate in a naked environment, as I said above, thinking with their dicks, not their brains !

If we are in a naturism/nudist environment, you cannot help but look, were ALL NAKED ! It's no different if you were clothed, we would still look. The only true difference is that your taking in the beauty of a naked body, whether it's female or male, see if for what it is, a naked, human body, in it's most natural and perfect state.

Let's not forget that someone younger is more than likely going to have a harder time controlling certain feelings and urges, where as those of us that are older, have learnt to control this aspect of our bodies, it takes time. It's not to say that they are doing anything wrong, we have all been there when younger and know damn well it's more difficult to control certain libido based aspects of being a male. If your in your teens and are just starting into naturism, you have a problem right there, in that hormones will be the main reason for things happening with young guys, where as if you have been brought up as a naturist from a young age, you would already know what is and isn't acceptable. It becomes a matter of perspectives, not just young males being inappropriate or ignorant.

The rules above just make the whole process a damn sight more awkward for younger males to be able to deal with a nudist situation, trying to remember all those points and trying not to look or get hard etc, they might just as well go stick their heads in the sand, so as not to have to deal with nudity in an open and friendly manner, they just need to be allowed to accept it.

As for those straight guys, that think women like that sort of bollocks comments and leering at them. They don't ! You assume far too much, not every female is like some of the tarts you may know back at home, who are free with their bodies and libido, you have NO RIGHT to class or put every other woman in the same aspect of the fact that they are a woman, and not a sexual object for you to get off at.

I'm certain that the above mentioned "rules" are not actually rules. There really are no rules to be a naturist. The list is, in my understanding, simply a set of suggestions for either sex to consider and follow if they don't want to be viewed as being creepy. But, most of us live in a free society so we can choose to act as we wish. But we need to remember that our actions, whether real or perceived, carry consequences. To that end we should act accordingly.

Namaste.

Agreed. Obviously, the OP is intended for newbies.

First times can create uncertainty. One must be careful to simply act normal and polite. Catch yourself if you glance a bit too long.

In our personal opinion a persons honor dignity and self respect are the only true gift a man can give to himself and throw away in an instant of lewid and inappropriate behaviour.
