Imagine going to a place where wearing clothing is
not required. A place where families can come
together and enjoy a day unlike any other. Indoor or
out, summer or snow, friends shed it all for a different
kind of living. A life free of crippling social
inhibitions with no need for repressive clothing.

A clothing optional vacation is just like
your other vacations - with one major exception - you don't have to wear
clothes. A growing number of people are enjoying these types of vacations and a
growing number of first class resorts are offering the option to go topless or
Clothing-Optional or Nude recreation has been
the norm in Europe for many years, and while a bit slow to "catch on" in the US
proper, it is becoming very popular, especially in Caribbean destinations
catering to American tourists.
It's not at all unusual for the first timer to be a little nervous getting
started, but once they get out of their clothes, any nervousness quickly
There are two pretty good methods of going about getting "nekkid" for the first
1. A lot of first timers will choose destinations that are clothing optional for
their first trip. Optional means exactly what it implies - you can choose to go
with or without your bathing suit. Many of the finer resorts like the Grand
Lido's in Jamaica all have clothing optional beaches. This way you can work out
of your suit a bit more slowly until you are comfortable.
2. Just jump right in and "Go for it". If you have already made the decision to
go to a clothing optional or nude beach you have already passed the biggest
hurdle. When you get there, head out to the nude beach or pool, and quickly
strip all the way out of your clothing, just like you have been doing it all of
you life. Remember... All those other people are "nekked" too... so it's not a
big thing for them to see you in your birthday suit.
the people like?
Just like you and me! In our travels to
clothing optional or nude destinations we have met all types of folks including
businessmen, entrepreneurs, secretaries, doctors, professionals, office &
factory workers alike. The great thing about going to a clothing optional
destination is that everybody is the same. Any pretensions of class or position
are usually quickly lost and everybody seems to fit together and socialize
is far from perfect. Won't I be embarrassed?
If you're going to a nude beach expecting
to see a nude version of "Baywatch" you're likely to be disappointed or relieved
as the case may be. One quick look around a nude beach and you will soon realize
that as we mentioned before, most everyone is just like you and me. You see
bodies of all types, shapes and sizes - tall, short, calorically challenged
(thin), calorically endowed (um... opposite of thin), black, white, brown and
everything in between. Not wearing clothes is nothing to be embarrassed about.
Wayne, our webmaster, relates his observations about some of his visits to
resorts that have both "textile" and "nude" beaches. He finds that the people on
the "clothed" sections of the beaches always seem to be MUCH more body conscious
than on the nude beach. Always tugging and adjusting suits so they look just
right, while the folks on the nude beach are relaxed and comfortable. We have
noticed exactly the same thing.
the difference between Clothing Optional (C/O) and Nudist facilities.
A resort or beach that is Clothing Optional
means that you can be dressed or nude in the designated areas - your choice.
Many first timers prefer Clothing Optional locations because it gives them a
chance to "ease" out of their clothes. A Nude or Nudist facility or beach
usually means that you are expected to be out of your clothes completely in the
I do about "Woody" or "That Time" of the Month?
For the guys:
Don't think that just because you have stepped out on a nude beach your are
going to get an automatic stiffy. Sure its possible, but actually its pretty
unlikely. But if it does happen just roll over on your stomach for a while, or
cover up with a towel until the "situation" subsides. We have noticed over the
last few years though that the medical miracle known as the "little blue pill"
has had a noticeable effect at clothing optional and nude resorts, especially
around the pool or spa at night. We're not telling you what to do, but just
remember that the effects from those things can be pretty long lasting.
For the gals:
What bad timing, Huh? But don't worry about it, just go with the flow... so to
speak. Usually women on their heavy days will simply don a bathing suit bottom
and go on having a great time. On lighter days, most women just do away with the
bottoms and just tuck the string. No big deal... either way.
this I hear about "Nude Etiquette"?
Any clothing optional or nude facility may
have their own rules, but generally the following guidelines will be
Always keep a towel
handy and put it over any furniture you sit on. (Good hygiene)
Don't stare or "gawk"
at other people who are nude.
Refrain from any
crude or lewd remarks about another persons body or appearance.
No photography. Save
your picture taking for when nobody else is around and/or ask permission if
anyone else is going to be included in your photographs or videos.
Observe the "rules of
the house". If a facility designates that clothing must be worn in certain
areas, or at certain times - please comply.
Personally... we are very much in favor of
sex!!! Oh... you mean public displays of sexual activity that you might have
heard about at some resorts?
One thing to clarify about the subject for newcomers as well as a reminder to
"seasoned veterans" is that public resorts we travel to don't officially condone
public sex. Take it to the privacy of your room or management can escort you off
the property. Sexual harassment is not permitted, is against the law in most
places, and clothing optional or Nudist resorts certainly don't allow it. and...
No means No.
Now with all of that said... let's get real here. Most all the resorts we
feature are absolutely stunning in their beauty and are truly a romantic dream
come true. In addition many of the resorts are for couples only. Sooooo... lets
mix a romantic atmosphere, a few potent umbrella drinks, a butt naked couple on
a moonlit beach, and it isn't uncommon for inhibitions to "fly out the window",
so to speak.
At most resorts, people are careful to share their "private moments" discreetly
out and away from others, but at other resorts some people can be quite the
exhibitionists some times. Managements enforcement of the "no public sex" policy
is often inconsistent and a lot depends on the mixture of guests at a particular
resort at any given time.
The bottom line is that some resorts are pretty laid back and sedate most of the
time, but others can have a pretty highly sexually charged atmosphere most of
the time. Again we can't stress enough how important it is, especially for first
timers, to discuss with us what you want out of your vacation. We want to help
you make the right choice for you, but we can do that only if we know what you
are looking for.
The naturist photo and video documentaries that we offer are legal in every city, every state and every county inside the United States. They are protected by the First Amendment and are not subject to local obscenity laws or ordinances. The depiction of adults and children nude in the visual media has enjoyed constitutional protection in the United States since 1958, when the Supreme Court vacated a Court of Appeals finding that Sunshine& Health magazine could be obscene (Sunshine Book Co. v. Summerfield, Postmaster General, 355 U.S. 372). The right to depict adults and children in innocent nude poses has been upheld without a pause for 41 years. In case after case, the Supreme Court and lower courts have always upheld the constitutionality of "nudity without more," specifically referring to the nudist depiction as a fully constitutional form of expression. Our website is widely visited in all of Asia, Europe, South America, Canada, Australia and Africa. The only exception may be countries where nudity of any kind is banned.
