So if we are minority. How come we don't have nudist month or our nudists day off where we don't have to wear clothes anywhere . We could maybe teach the textiles that we are not a threat and are just comfortable being all natural and true.
We are a minority but we have CO beaches and there are private resorts, camp grounds etc. Some places have nude bike days (WNBR) so we do get the opportunity to be naked in public. A nude day of recognition / day off .... don't think it will happen here anyway.
I think we need to enjoy our legal beaches / places but maybe not approach textiles to ask them if we offend them. If they approach us all good but I don't think it's a good idea to approach them, I just think you are looking for hassles / objection by doing this and I've discussed this with DB. Some people will take offence or object despite the fact that they are at a CO beach, the "O" stands for optional and while we adopt the option, others may not and it is their choice.
I dont really understand what are those people that Keep their swimwear at "pure" naked beaches.
The worst are the single men, wearing a hat and sunglasses-terrible.
There might be those who came with their partners but dont like nudism -hats rather understandable.
We prefer those places where you dont see any textile at all.
S & M
my nearest beach studland dorset is official naturist beach but sometimes see more textiles there walkin along than nude cos it depend on how hot day it is really but very busy when sunny so then lot nude sarah
We get lots of walkers (textile types) at the legal CO beaches I use here too. I'm sure the CO status keeps some away but I think it also creates a curiosity too for others. There will also be the ones who think it's a free public beach, I'll walk there because it's a public beach and others who don't care .
The beaches I visit tend to be very long stretches of beach with the CO part at the end or a long way from one of the towns and textile section . Some people enjoy the long walk as part of a walking / healthy living approach to life too. However I don't believe any of us should feel awkward or embarrassed being nude at a legal CO beach, but I don't think we should be having sex openly on these beaches to shock others or because we think it's OK. That activity will eventually cause complaints to authorities and can get the legal CO status challenged.
I always check the status of a beach - that it is CO /nudist before I use it. Many CO beaches have a majority of bathers in swimwear. I may be the first, or only, one to strip off. I have checked that it's ok so I'm never embarrassed or apologetic. And I don't care who sees me - fellow nudists, textiles or voyeurs.
