Breakfast

Several people have commented on this site that at cloting optional resorts, many people dress for dinner in the restaurant even though they are not required to do so.
Is the same true at breakfast?

Our experience of the resorts weve been to over the years is that the majority of naturists prefer to dress for dinner. We would prefer to eat nude but usually go with the flow.

Breakfast and lunch is always nude for us, but again, many prefer to wear something more substantial than a towel.

What is it about meals that does this? I understand the towels and the like for any shared furniture, but past that... why? Are people just really messy eaters and don't want crumbs all over their skin? Do bodies somehow ruin their appetite? Does the thought of a bare bottom mixed with eating somehow just cross wires in their brain and cause dissonance? I can see how if someone had bad skin conditions or something like that it would be very unappetizing... but that would also be a public health issue so that's covered under reason. I just wonder what causes this in a nudist environment.

Actually crumbs and spills are easier to remove from skin than clothes so being messy isn't a valid excuse in my book. My son, however, makes his son wear a shirt at the table because he is a bit messy. I would not make him wear one since my son and I often don't, but I won't interfere unless I see something that is truly detrimental.

My breakfast experience at resorts has been coffee & a roll / donut as you are. I really havent seen anyone put on something early in the morning unless it was cold.

I have only eaten lunch and dinner at nudist venues. It was a mix of nude and some degree of dressed. I was nude and was a bit uncomfortable at first because I was visiting and the only one nude. I didnt know if dressing for meals was required. Eventually other nudes came in and I felt better.

A radio talk show host did his show from a nudist resort and when he was offered food he declined because he though it was unsanitary.

My times spent at Cypress usually have me at the poolside caf for breakfast.
I'll claim our loungers for the day and then order and omelet and a Bloody Mary, as I like tomatoes with my eggs!
Being early, some may arrive nude and ready for the sun but others may wear a cover they have brought with them to the pool area.
It doesn't appear that anyone is making a conscious effort to dress or not dress to eat breakfast. It seems more about practicality and comfort level at that time in the morning as they eat before a day spent poolside and before the day heats up.
That is how I perceive it.
I'm there for the nude freedom so I take advantage of every moment I can, weather permitting.

Our local nudist venues are more camps than resorts, so you order food at a walk up window then take it over to picnic tables. Everyone remains nude. At the resorts we have been to (Laguna del Sol, Cypress Cove, and Lake Como) we have not had any problems remaining nude for all meals. As said earlier, at Cypress Cove breakfast is more popular at the pool bar "Cheeks" than at the restaurant, so the majority are nude for any meal there. We've always been able to be nude at the main restaurant as well, but clothed guests are more common there. We just got back from Lake Como and nude at dinner was more common than at breakfast, but that could be because it was still cooler in the morning. That's what I remember at Laguna del Sol as well, but it's been a while since weve been there.

Then there are the nude cruises we go on. Since the main dining room requires clothes, anyone who seeks out the buffet or pool deck food options is probably doing so specifically to remain nude. So clothed diners are in the minority.

we always like taking an early morning walk around the place we were staying with a cup of coffee in our hand , and most campers always asked us to join them for breakfast everyone was nude ..hell it was a nudist resort , would anyone expect anything different ?

I think somebody who says it's unsanitary to eat nude has not understood nudism. A penis or a vagina is not unclean, it's a part of the body like the hand and the mouth.

Then the guy needs to shower more often ;)

That said... FOOD PREP in a restaurant area -- that should definitely be a clothes on endeavor. Commercial food prep areas are always weirdly prone to cross contamination. I think probably just because of sheer volume of traffic.
