My 40th birthday will be rolling around next year (yikes!), so my non-nudist wife suggested we take a trip somewhere special to celebrate. Not being one to miss an opportunity, I suggested an up-scale nudist resort. Totally surprising me, she said she would go IF if was clothing optional. 8)
I first looked at Cypress Cove near Orlando. While there are plenty of things to do around there (Sea World, Discovery Cove, Kennedy Space Center, etc), I've been to Florida enough that another trip to Orlando wouldn't really be "special". I've only been to California once - to the LA area a few years ago with my wife for her cousin's wedding - and would like to go back to explore some more. So, I thought a California trip could be considered special. I also thought that it might be nice to see her cousin and his wife on our trip, so I started looking for nudist resorts in California. Since it is special, I wanted someplace up-scale. So far, I've only found Desert Sun. The others, while they look like fun places, seem like they cater more to RVs.
So, I have two questions:
1) Am I missing any other resorts that I should consider?
2) Have you been to Desert Sun recently, and if so, how did you enjoy it? Would it be the kind of place a reserved, shy woman would be out of place in?
While we were on our honeymoon 8 years ago in St. Martin, she did try going topless on Orient Beach for a short time. She said it "wasn't her thing" and hasn't tried since. Although over the last year or so she has gotten more relaxed about being nude around the house and she joined in a clothing-optional house party I threw earlier this year. She remained clothed, but had a great time and said she would join us again (clothed) whenever I had another C/O party. It may not sound like much, but it was a HUGE step for her.
So, I HOPE that she will surprise me by trying nude sunbathing or at least skinny dipping in the pool. But, we will see. The first step is finding a place that is nice that she can relax at.
Any information would be greatly appreciated!
