If you read the question, it is all about getting women, who are NOT nudists, but perhaps curious about nudism, the chance to explore nudism w/o the whatever it is that being nude around males prevents them from trying. Frankly, I am a bit taken aback by these objections. Socializing is not heterosexually limited, nude or other wise. A group of nude women engaged in conversation is certainly social nudity. Gay and bi, tatooed and pierced, these things are not limited to males. . The question is asking if such an evironment was available, would more women give it a try. Of course, with the idea that if they tried that and liked it, they would then try coming out to the club on non-women only days. You know, one step at a time here guys, geez. . Damn I wish we could engage more women in the forum.I have to agree with Orient. I have heard many people complain that clubs are a "sausage fest", and need more women. (Not the case in my area). BUT... think about it. Especially if it's a half day thing, itprovides comfort to the ladies. They maytry social nudism. Then, after they spend a few hours naked in the sun, feelingfree and comfortable, they will likely enjoy it. Anytime I have to put my clothes back on to join "society", I get adepressed feeling. I think this is a smart business decision, and good for nudism as a whole.
it IS discrimination. AND that should never be allowed anywhere.Careful !
I can.do, and will discriminate against perverts, child pornographers, thieves, and their ilk.
Discrimination is not necessarily a bad thing.
It's all about context.
Definitely! I don't think that many male nudists seem to understand that women also like to engage in their own little circles and have their own 'girly talk' where they can discuss their own affairs independent of everybody else.
Most women do feel uncomfortable in being in male dominated situations, even more so when they are naked. As Suzi Quatro once said "One woman with three guys on stage is the fantasy of a rape scene." OK, it's not to do with nudism as such but you can probably get the context of what she means by that.
There are very very few nudist women who do feel comfortable being the only woman at meetings, so I think it's right for them to be able to have a sense of fellowship and solace with their own gender. As it is, nudist groups and clubs that are exclusively for women are few and far between in our culture (with the exception of the Diablo Sun Devils).
In fact, a few days ago I started up a woman's naturist fellowship group on FB in which I added female nudists I'm friends with on FB to it as a means of communicating with each other and put the word out onto a couple of other groups I'm subscribed to. The people who loudly objected to it were not females, but a few males who tried to accuse me of having ulterior motives - and they don't even know me in real life!
The link to it is https://www.facebook.com/groups/femalenaturists and it's got about 50 members on it already.
Would days set up by nudist parks that were women only days, would that help intice the curious?I know toadtly natural garden in wi does it helps get more women comfortable with nudism and eventually start coming all the time great idea
Women do enjoy women's only events.
My wife for one is more relaxed in women's only events, and says she feels uncomfortable being nude in mixed company because even in a couples only environment there will always be at least one male who will push the boundaries of individual space, by by trying to keep in close proximity or continually eyballing her.
This happened last weekend an a house party of about 6 couples, one guy just couldn't help himself, and hung around like a bad smell. Probably he and his wife are swingers and he was testing the waters.
My feeling is that anybody that opposes the idea of womens only days and use various vague arguments to support their case are just being childish and chauvinistic, thus exposing their me, me, meattitude and scared they might miss out on seeing nude women enjoying themselves without males cramping their mental and physical freedom.
Apologies and pardon the intrusion "ladies" ... but I can tell you that our club has a "Ladies ONLY" day at the club and it's been successful in having many women curious about the club, about nudism and those that have been reluctant towards nudism, with a nudist husband. Our club still has them annually and I think they are still successful. I think there are more "female friends" of members that come and check it out.
There are quite a few women on a regular basis at our club. Besides the residents ... lots of couples and many single females, in groups, will visit on weekdays and weekends. We are starting to see a bit more kids at the club as well, which is encouraging. I'll tell you that my wife enjoys the club much more when she's not the only female on the pool deck. I'm not in favor of not allowing singles entrance into clubs and resorts but I will say that if the male numbers far outweigh the females ... I see many of those females either covering up or heading back to their accommodations and hang out there.
