What embarrassed a nudist / naturist?


I’ve read articles and seen video of non-nude people documenting their first times at nudist resorts or nude beaches. Usually, the subject of the piece is uncomfortable at first but eventually eases into it. The people they encounter are understanding, patient and supportive.

While scenarios such as these may be embarassing for the newbie, the already practicing nudists always come off as being unfazed. Willingly and happily naked near a person who is not used to seeing or being seen.

So, with this in mind, what would it take to embarass a nudist/naturist?

Their face/name being used in a study/documentary about nudism? Their image ending up on a dirty website withoit their consent? People they didn’t want to know now knowing? Rumors or whispers aboit them around town or at work?



How do nudists / naturists handle people they meet who they discover are just there for a sexual kink?


How does a practicing nudist / naturist who is at a nudist beach or resort etc… and interacts with a person (or couple or group) who through observation or conversation finds out the strangers are not nudists or even curious about the lifestyle but are just there for a voyeuristic sexual thrill?

Is that offensive? Or a nuisance? Or does it sort of come with the territory?

I imagine I’d find it frustrating if the people sat next to me on the beach were giggling and inappropriate and obnoxious.


Do you think lingerie is appropriate or inappropriate in nudist / naturist settings?


Should lingerie be allowed? This question sounds like an oxymoron, but what clothing, if any, shouldn’t be allowed in nudist places? I’m curious to hear everyone’s thoughts!
