RE:Nude with kids.

But what about gay fathers? This type of exclusion seems pretty disrespectful and is practically gate-keeping social nudism. Another question, directed toward the person I quoted, how is it disrespect and condescending behavior to men based on the belief that men are inferior to women? Are you only talking about single fathers not being included in nudist resorts or is there more to it?

I am speaking for myself as a single Midwestern dad and see such gate-keeping policies are equal opportunity discrimination for men of all ages, races and orientation. It's a quota system where only women are always welcomed. I personally understand the need to be selective but not discriminatory. Why not post policies online stating all visitors are subject to background checks? Or require people to watch a video about appropriate behavior? Rather than instilling positive nudist values, nudist venues (at least in the Midwest) come across as cliquish with a chip on their shoulder. Until organizations like ANR take the lead with equality standards that their member venues must adhere to, landed resort nudism is a becoming a small niche market limited to places like Florida and California. Those are states where trends should start, not to retire and die.

AANR is just as guilty of discrimination. My husband and I would have to join as two single members while an unmarried man and woman can join as a couple.

I guess I was fortunate as I took swimming lessons at age 5 and had to swim Nude due to the pool filtration system getting clogged up with the swimsuit materials of that time in the 1950s! My father a roofer would come home after being in the hot sun and immediately strip and tell me to strip and we both showered together. He also came to the father/son swim at the Y and he got nude. Then as a little older boy of 12 my two older cousins came over fir the day and the three of us got nude in my bedroom and of course played with each other! I also went to the Ys boys camp and every morning their was a dip in the private lake and it was nude to wash up with your bar of floating ivory soap and towel. On Sundays all males in the camp from the camp director on down had to get nude and on the beach due some jumping jacks (which I will never forget watching my and all th other guys penises flop up and down! After that I got nude everywhere in high school and college and even up to my present age of 75! I love being nude!

Did either your father or you stay nude after your shower?

I wish I could recall, it was long a time ago. He did sleep nude, as I did, but in separate bedrooms. He was not a shy man though so I do believe I recall him answering the phone and getting into his office (he owned a roofing company and he didn;t want to miss any telephone calls even if nude. He did come nude to the father/son nude swim at the YMCA, and being a Catholic and allowing his son and him during that time to be YMCA members said alot about him as that is not what the Catholic faith desired. Because he was a roofer and hauled heavy materials up ladders he had one heck of a physique. He was not a man you wanted to mess with, although he was kind, helpful, loving, giving and helpful Dad. I can say nothing but good things about him!

I am Catholic and just a few years younger than you and I remember my father talking to our pastor before he let me join the YMCA. Ours was coed and didn't have a pool. My dad was very much one to stay covered so I suspect that if there had been nude swimming for males, my less body conscious grandfather would have been the one to take me.

It is liberating when your kids understand the naked body as normal versus the way I grew up that no one should see you naked. So bad. Keep developing that body positive culture friends.

I saw on your profile page that you have children. What are their ages and genders? How did you get them to accept nudity as normal? Have you experienced any difficulties in that regard?

Dont make everything political. Keep your opinions to yourself. Just enjoy naturism.

It's all in how you raise the kids and the enviroment you create with being nude. Here bodies are just bodies and parts are parts. No shame and nothing to worry about when seen. One day our grand daughter simply said her brothers penis gets hard alot. I looked at him and he said Yep it does.
Not a big deal and just bodies with parts that are different sometimes from others depending who your nude with. We all have parts.
