Good point which honors the meaning of respect. "Re" = twice and "spect" = look at. To look at twice. Maybe as men we look the first glance and see an object because our brain is wired that way. The trick is to remember to look at the second time to appreciate the whole beauty of one another, on the inside and out, and to know that it is all good. Be well.

Respect is the right of everyone. Unfortunately, sometimes the people on this site forget that or, perhaps, never knew it to begin with. Nudism is supposed to support this ideal that allows interaction amongst nudists to be without shame, discomfort or sexualization (if that's even a word). Without respect there can be no true fellowship amongst like-minded people if there are ulterior motives. Five minutes in the chatroom can leave one very disappointed with so many threads sounding like a bad pick-up bar. Similarly, many pix in the galleries are simply porn and do not convey respect for nudism or the person being photographed.

This is a matter of culture. I,ve been in places where nobody even question that everybody (not only women but special) deserves respect, this is somthing natural, you can socialize being naked same as dressed, no difference, but this is a matter of mature minded people. Usually you cant spect this in a public beach, as a woman I know what i am going to find there.

41 years ago ( I'll save you the math it was 1976 ) when my wife and i went to our 1st nudist resort , a place called "Indian Hills " it was owned by a man i only knew as " the professor " being our 1st time at a nudist resort it was pretty easy to tell we were newbies, so while we were sitting under some pine trees for shade he walked up and introduced himself and one of the questions that i asked him was what was and wasn't allowed and he said and i quote " son if you can't do it in church , you sure as hell are not gonna do it here " it's been 41 years since that day and i can remember it like it happened yesterday
it was good advise then and still is to this very day , i learned of his passing a few years ago, but he was one of the nicest men i have ever had the privilege of knowing

I haven't visited forum for a few months and am encouraged by the responses, thank you all. I really appreciate all the input, insights, wisdom... I had never thought of the word RE SPECT as, "to look at twice". So insightful. We ALL get to be wonderfully human and make mistakes, at times hurting ourselves and others but being human also means we are above the animals and get to chooooose, it's unfortunate some lack the fortitude to evaluate their thoughts, actions... and realize there may be a better way. God Bless you all, keep up the good fight. Some just need help recognizing nudism/naturism is a beautiful, shameless, wondrous, gift and we ALL need to hold one another in the highest regard as fellow beings. RESPECT!

Another aspect of "Respect" is simple social graces-specifically Courtesy. If you tell someone you are going to visit them, one would assume that person is planning their day around your visit. Most likely they are putting some chores or activities on hold, pending your promised visit. Why are so many people, young and old, saying they are going to do something or come for a visit, then never show up? They never phone or send an email message to say they are not going to make it. My only thought is that since they communicated by the internet, they feel exempt from common courtesy.

There is also the food that was bought for the special appetizers, meal and dessert that will be prepared in time for their arrival.

For our friends and family that we invite that tend to be forgetful or have no sense of time, I will call before they should be leaving and tell them to "avoid the Turnpike, there is an accident," or "can you pick up someone on your way." This tends to go over better that "don't forget."
