Nudist Erections and Naturist Etiquette

Nudist Erection and Issues With Nude Nudists With Public Erections Yes, erections are a natural bodily function… But a nudist with an erection is an unwelcome sight in a public nudist setting: Public Nudist Erections – A number of articles out there deal with the (potentially overexposed!) topic of nude males with erections and nudism. Many who practice naturism feel that too much negative emphasis goes towards this naturally occurring event. Others within the nudist community express the sentiment of “protecting” certain groups from what they perceive as an overtly sexual gesture. Religious aspects and societal views continue to make ...

How Not To Be A Nudist Creep

Nudism Behavior Etiquette and Guide For Men On How To Avoid Being Labeled A Nudist Creep Nudism Behavior Etiquette – Last year, I published a blog about gender and harassment issues in naturism. As a continuation of this topic, I thought we should delve further into nudist behavioral guidelines and how not to be “creepy” in naturist or social nude settings. Can We Define The Term “Creepy”?

The Nudism Gender Problem Part 2: Addressing Harassment

Nudism & Gender Issues: Let’s Talk About Safety and Harassment It was good to see that my last article about naturism and single male policies generated a lot of discussion on our website and on social media. It seems like most people actually agreed with us that naturism should be inclusive rather than exclusive. I’d added a poll at the end of my article asking if nudist resorts, clubs, groups, etc should restrict entry to single men in order to have a better gender ratio. Out of over 400 votes, the overwhelming majority – nearly 80% — said “No.” Twelve ... Read more

Nudism, Gender and Single Male Nudist Policies

Nudism and Discrimination of the Single Male Nudist: Yay or Nay? A few months ago on my blog, I talked about “why naturism has a lady problem.” The problem being that women don’t show up to many nudist places and events in nearly the same numbers as men. I’ve observed that men (of all ages and sexual orientations) are more comfortable being naked in social settings. They are almost guaranteed to show up at any publicized nudist or naked affair. (It’s different in other countries but I’m talking only about the U.S. here.) I’ve come up with several reasons for ... Read more
