A Comprehensive Guide to Clothing Optional Resorts
Questions and Answers About Clothing Optional Resorts:
Thinking of visiting clothing optional resorts? The first visit to a nudist resort or other nudist location may feel like an intimidating experience. If you are new to nudism and naturism, then many locations or resorts are capable and willing to help you feel better adjusted. They may do this by either slowly introducing you or by allowing you the option to undress as you feel comfortable. It may also help to inquire before visiting whether it is a strictly nude resort or if clothing is optional until you are more relaxed.
Clothing Optional Resorts Packing Guide:
Packing for a trip to a clothing optional resort may seem a little confusing. That said, it is important to bring at least some clothing in case there are situations where being dressed is more practical. The use of towels is also encouraged to both rest on and cover up as needed. Cameras are generally frowned upon so it may not be ideal to bring any unless otherwise noted. Bring plenty of sun-block or sunscreen, sunglasses or other toiletries as needed as you would on any other trip.
Those with pets or children should ask ahead of time whether they are allowed. Also, make sure to ask if any special accommodations need to be made for them. Some resorts may be adults-only or a pet free location.
Clothing Optional Resorts that are adult only
Adults-only is not always to be taken as adult-themed behavior, it may just mean that adults or couples may be more free than they could if children were present.
What to expect at Clothing Optional Resorts:
The most important thing to expect when visiting clothing optional resorts or locations is that other guests will be in various states of nudity. It is a completely natural way to be and these resorts offer guests a place to be to enjoy this without the worry of interruptions.
Locations that offer a clothing optional environment can be a good place to become accustomed to and comfortable with social nudity without feeling pressured to participate right away.
Five Tips for Visiting a Clothing Optional Resort
If you are curious about the naturist lifestyle, there is no safer way to experiment than through a visit to a clothing optional resort. These resorts are much like any other resort, but they allow you to enjoy your vacation in the nude (if you prefer). To ensure you get the full experience, consider these five tips for visiting a clothing optional resort:
1. Stay in a legitimate clothing optional resort for an authentic naturist experience without awkward stares.
To get an authentic naturist experience, you have to visit a clothing optional or naturist resort that offers a true nudist environment. You will find legitimate nudists at these resorts, as well as others with a legitimate interest in exploring the nudist culture. What you will not find are the many people who flock to public nudist beaches just to gawk.
2. Study your chosen clothing optional resort online and in literature prior to your visit.
All clothing optional resorts have different rules, amenities, and scheduled activities. Some are located on private beaches and offer on-site entertainment, dining, spa services, and group activities. Make sure that you understand and can abide by all rules of your chosen resort.
If you are traveling with children, make sure you do not book at an adult-only resort. Some resorts prefer to keep their clientele free of minors, but this does not mean the facility is sexually oriented. It just means children are not accommodated and will not have entertainment options at those resorts.
3. Do not forget the sunscreen when visiting a clothing optional resort!
If you do decide to take it all off and fully immerse yourself in the naturist lifestyle, you will need some sunscreen. Full-body sunburn is nothing you want to experience, so lather up before you head out to the beach to soak up the sun and play in the sand.
4. If this is your visit to a clothing optional resort the keep an open mind and try new things.
Even if it means stepping slightly out of your comfort zone.
Visiting a clothing optional resort will force most people to step outside of their comfort zone. So you are not alone if you feel nervous. Spend some time observing others. Keep your mind open to new experiences. Give yourself time to get comfortable and this will be an experience you may never forget.
5. Never strip down naked without a towel handy.
Nudists are always conscious of basic sanitary and safety rules. One of the most important rules is: never sit down on any piece of furniture in the nude without placing a towel underneath your body! Some nudists prescribe to this rule in their own homes. But all prescribe to it when sitting on public furniture. This rule of etiquette should be followed at any clothing optional resort!
You should plan your clothing optional resort visit just as you would plan any other trip (with the exception of some issues highlighted in these tips). You will meet interesting people. You will see just how normal it is and how little it may differ from a textile resort. You will see firsthand why nudism is becoming more popular around the world.
