I am going to St Martin this with my parents in May. Some days, they just like to hang out at the hotel and I usually take the car and go off by myself. I have never gone nude but am thinking I would like to this year on Orient of course.

I was wondering how it would be for a 26 year old to be by herself nude? Are there any actions I should be aware of--meaning this--there seems to be a division between naturalists who are into it for the sex side (which is fine by me) and some into it just for the freedom of being nude (also fine by me).

That said, are there sort of unwritten rules that alert people as to what you are looking for, if anything?

This may seem silly, but I have been to a few swingers clubs and there are certain gestures, positions to sit in and so on that let people know where you stand so to speak--of you are there to watch, to play and so on.

So on a nude beach, are there any such things? I am not sure what I will be looking for that day- just a quiet day alone or something more... but I want to know how to act depending.

For example, I read something about sitting with your legs open vs closed. To sit with them open is to invite people to stare, often in a voyeuristic way. It is a hint and that if someone approached you then to chat, that it may be understood you are looking for something more than just a day at the beach, maybe later or to go off somewhere.

Similarly, if you sit with them closed, that means just here for the sun. And if someone approached you with a proposition, they would be out of line or it just wouldnt happen.

Is this true and are there any other signals, etc?

Thanks

In my 35+ years of being a nudist, I've never heard of the "signals" you mention. But then I'm a nudist; first, last, and only.

News to me... Naturalists are into it for the sex?

I thought
Naturalist
Naturist
Nudist
were all the same thing.

Does someone have definitions for me?

Naturalist is sort of an environmentalist.
Naturist to me is the same as Nudist. However to some, a naturist is being nude in nature. I'm a nudist, I enjoy being without clothes most times.

Cheri,
You've said for me also,"I'm a nudist,I enjoy being without clothes most times".It's not complicated.It just means clothes free.

I wonder....

Since I was born nude and prefer that even today, am I an originalist, or perhaps a purist? Maybe I am a bare-ist and would rather be em-bare-ist.

When I am clothed, I am still nude underneath. At those times, am I a stealth nudist? Am I engaged in a cover-up? If peeling off clothes makes me nude, does dressing repeal (re-peel) that?

Things that make you say, "hmmm...."

Here is an important general etiquette question: Can you describe "safe" ways to compliment the opposite gender on a nude beach? Example: Once I was at the beach without my wife (with her permission, of course), walking along the shore and reading a book, and I looked up and saw a lady runner. She was moving toward me with powerful, smooth strides, like a gazelle. I'm a runner, but not her calibre, and I wanted to say, "Nice form!" as she blew by. But I didn't, because I was there alone, and I didn't want to seem forward. I just smiled and secretly wished I had a stride and a cadence like that! Now, I definitely would have complimented her if my wife were there; in fact, I find it much easier to give a compliment that way. It just seems less likely that I'll generate suspicion of an ulterior motive.

So, what do you think (especially you ladies out there)? My wife tends to be a little more suspicious on the beach than off. Are the norms really any different there (or in the club) versus textile-land? There are obvious things not to do and say; I'm not talking about those. But I think guys in general might be more complimentary if they could receive a little help.

I agree with Cheri, I just enjoy being nude, wherether it is at home, at the beach or at the club. I especially enjoy being nude outside when the weather is nice. I love feeling the sun and air on my body.

The difference between a naturist and a nudist that I once read (and makes sense to me) is:

A naturist takes his/her clothes of when it's natural to do so- in other words, weather/temperature permitting.

A nudist wants to be nude as much as possible- even when there's physical discomfort created by said weather/temperature, etc.

You might have a point there nudeman72, but I have always understood that a naturist was a person more into the environment and the communing with nature along with nudisim.

Hmm- interesting, Kim.

I guess that might be the exact opposite, then, of what I understood. (Communing with nature might entail going out in the snow naked, etc.)

I like sleeping in the nude. I also like walking around the house in the nude. It would be nice to go outside in the nude but can't to many neighbors. It would be nice to get my wife to join me but she is to old fashion. I would very much enjoy going to a clothing optional resort if I can get the other half to join me. I live in Southern MN.

Up untill now, in every context that I've heard the use of the words naturist and nudist, the terms have been pretty much synonymous. To my understanding, nudists enjoy being nude socially and/or privately and naturists seem to lean more towards enjoying the practice of nudity in more natural settings. I'm not comfortable with the idea of categorizing those who wish to "swing" with either term. I'm not making a judgment on persons' personal behavior, I just think that these two terms don't mix with the swinger lifestyle.

As to the question of "unwritten rules," I don't think there are any. My feeling tells me that body language would be read the same at a clothing optional beach as anywhere else.

Welcome to the forum tommyjoe. Hopefully with a little loving encouragement and patience, you can convince your better half to join you at a nude resort some day.

nudeisntlewd,

I would agree with everything you wrote. We usually use both naturist and nudist to mean the same when we speak of our lifestyle. We use them in the same fashion we use nude and naked.

When talking to other nudists at the beach, club or resorts, we usually use the words nudist, "how long have you been a nudist?" With the same people we will use the work naked, "lets go back to the resort and get naked". With nudist there shouldn't be a sexual undertone with the word naked, but some think there is.

It is easier on textiles ears to hear the words nude and naturist rather than naked and nudist. So when we speak to textile friends or aquaintances about our lifestyle we usually use the words nude and naturist.

I too hope that we do not use either of the terms nudist or naturist to ever distinguish between nudists/naturists and those that may be and are also swingers.

We also have not seen or heard of any signs through body language or otherwise at any clubs,beaches or resorts. Some of those we've seen that are looking for that type of action don't usually beat around the bush, they've been pretty upfront about what they had in mind.
