RE:Are Nudist clubs slowly killing of naturism?

These discussions are always interesting to me as what is described is not my experience. Ive been going to Laguna Del Sol for I believe around 10-12 years and every year (except this year due to COVID), especially on the holiday weekends the place has gotten busier. I have been there two times on regular weekends where I was surprised to find that women outnumbered the men at the main pool Ive also seen more young adults and even young families going and some of those have become regulars or even members. Yes, the age slants to the older folk but they generally have more time and money. Younger people come less often but more than likely go more often as they get more financially stable and are no longer running kids to soccer games etc. Those younger then become the older group as the original older group dies off.

Weve only been to LdS a couple of times, but both were for Nudestock weekend. We also saw lots of young adults in the crowd at the concerts. Since we live on the east coast we now go to Cypress Cove when it gets cold here in New England and it is an older crowd there, but still some young families.

As far as the single males go here is our experience. The wife and I belong to a local resort. They do allow single males but do charge them a higher rate. What we and our friends have experienced is there are some genuine single males who just enjoy nudism but we have found an overwhelming majority of the single males are there to "hook up" and they could care less if the woman is single or not. They just move in and hit on the woman even if there husband is close by. Unfortunately those single males leave a very bad taste in others peoples mouth, hence why it is made harder for all single males to join.

Exactly what is the rate differential between single men and single women? And what is the name of the resort?

Is there any mechanism for reporting those impolite men to the management, so they can be told that they're out of line? I'd think that having your name called out on the public address system, being called into the manager's office, would shame them into leaving for good. Or just having them put on a list so that they can't get in later on. Casinos do that all the time.

My head is spinning with the changes management at our local club took. It's moved from mandatory nude to clothing optional to now clothing optional even in the pool area. I have seen a burst in visitors coming in wearing costumes at the pool.

This might actually be an interesting experiment. If it encourages people to the clothing optional areas so that they eventually become nude, it would be a Good Thing, IMO. I guess you'd have to see how it works over time. If those visitors come back but eventually see the sense in swimming naked and doff their suits, they might even go home and tell their friends what a great experience it was.

Please keep us posted on how this experiment turns out.

The fact that you are a single male is not the fault of the club.Running a naturist club is not all about your needs. If this club wont accept single men find one that will.Or start one for single men.

Exactly. People are so self centered and emotionally weak that they pretend that all the clubs HAVE TO meet their requirements. Move on guys. Those clubs have rules to benefit majority of people not specific cases. If you want a club only for single males find it. And once you find it then you will realize why many serious clubs have strict policies with men.

maybe some mention of TNS would be appropriate since they dont discriminate or tend to Male bash like AANR and affiliiate resorts do plus they do try to defend naturist / nude ways in places other than just moneyed venues.

Discrimination.... male bashing?

The problem for you is this.

Option one, convince a thousand club members to change their rules to suit you.

Option two, convince one person (your wife/partner) to go with you.

Why always choose the more difficult option?

Somewhere onTN. Someone already posted that their club going CO had the same effect as a open yawn. One covered up and many others followed suit :-0

Option one it is! It would certainly be the easier choice for me. I completely understand and believe it or not, actually support the reasons behind being suspicious of unaccompanied guys, even though I am one. Sucks to be me sometimes, but I can't blame them.
