Generally you will have a great day and won’t have any problems but just a few points should be remembered. But please don’t be ‘That bloke’. Don’t make other beach goers feel uncomfortable due to your behaviour.
NO SEXUAL ACTIVITY:
Just because you’re nude doesn’t mean you can lewd. This undermines the nudist ethos and is offensive to most people. It’s also a criminal offence to engage in sexual activity in public anyway, whether by yourself or with your partner. The regular beach goers are likely to call the police and you may need to explain your actions to them and try and convince them of your point of view. They won’t agree with you and are likely to give you an unwelcomed tour of their facilities.
Despite what images and videos you may have seen on the internet suggesting a nude beach is non-stop action, this is really not the case.
Don’t be remembered as that creepy bloke who can’t ‘leave himself alone’, no-one wants to see it and ladies don’t find this attractive, the locals are likely to give you an unflattering nickname as well.
This type of behaviour can threaten the status of some beaches, and local opposition to our beaches often raise these instances to further their cause. If you wouldn’t do it on a textile beach don’t do it on a nude beach – go get a room.
Just because a lady is enjoying herself at a nude beach especially alone doesn’t mean she wants sex, especially with you, so leave her alone.
GAWKING OR STARING –
It’s rude to stare at others at the best of times especially on a nude beach. If you have made the effort to come to one of our beaches, join in, if you came to ‘have a look’ – stay at home and read a magazine. The beach isn’t a parade for your gratification and you will cause others to feel uncomfortable.
This includes care where setting your towel up or sitting on the beach. We’ve all seen ‘the bloke’ who manages to set up ‘strategically’ so he can have a good look, or ‘the bloke’ who keeps moving around the beach to get the best viewing point.
PHOTOGRAPHY AND CAMERAS –
No-one wants to be the latest internet sensation with naked photos of themselves causing them embarrassment and explaining to their mum how they spent the weekend. Don’t even consider taking photos of children if you value your health.
So leave your camera and video recorder at home and don’t use your mobile phone for this purpose too. You should also be mindful of where you point your mobile phone’s camera lens. If you do wish to undertake any photography on a nude beach especially unwelcomed be prepared for an ugly confrontation and your device being tossed into the water.
There’s enough photos on the internet for your entertainment – we don’t need anymore, especially yours.
