  • Women and "nude mandatory" resorts

    I'm curious what other people's experience with their S/O has been at "nudity mandatory" resorts, or settings where nudity was "de rigeur" - as opposed to optional.

    "Clothing-optional" is often designated as the best option for women; as it allows for acclimatization and not "feeling forced" to be naked. My wife - during her "modest beginnings" - would have herself never agreed to visit a venue that didn't offer that option.

    But then; we visited a "nude mandatory" resort, unbeknownst to us as we didn't read the resort website FAQ prior to the visit. It wasn't until we got there that we realized that everyone on the premises was nude, including at check-in. My wife would usually tan and swim naked in the pool area at other resorts; but would cover up outside that area and while walking around, as many other women did. But there wasn't a single person there who wasn't walking around, or outside the pool area, nude.
    Long story short: my wife decided to not cover up either. I was actually pretty surprised by her decision to leave her cover-up behind to go for a walk around the lake. That would be the first time she stayed naked the entire day; but it wouldn't be the last. This resort is now her favorite; and she undresses right away after checking in, and stays naked the entire time, enjoying hiking, activities on the lake, swimming in the pool and exploring the resort - without any inclination to cover up.

    I find it interesting. Because as adamant as she was about "clothing-optional"; she ultimately preferred staying naked when everyone else was. So there was a direct correlation between seeing that everyone else was naked, and her own comfort with being seen naked throughout the resort. Had we not ventured into a "nude mandatory" venue, she might very well have never worked up to being naked "full time."

    "Nude mandatory" has gotten a bad rap due to some resorts that strictly enforce it. But they do have their benefits. They can provide motivation for women to work up the confidence to explore being more "actively naked"; as opposed to just sitting by the pool reading a book.

    Nobody likes to "have to" do anything but sometimes that little nudge is all it takes. My story is exactly the same as yours

      What is the name of this resort? I wish clothing optional nude beaches, like Haulover in Orlando, were nude mandatory

          I'm Curious, Why?

            I'm not sure if I can repond to all of you by using this method. Anyhow, I agree with one of you that said they wondered why I wish Haulover were nude mandatory. I just don't like being looked at by clothed people; I feel vulerable. I feel naked rather than nude, if you know what I mean. I still financially support the beach but I won't go there anymore.
            The resort I referred to is Cypress Cove in Orlando. See: Home | Cypress Cove Nudist Resort (cypresscoveresort.com). I did an informal survey of the women there and asked if they felt more sexually harrassed in a clothed or nude resort, and all said nude. I've been pressing AANR to do a formal study so the newspapers would pick it up to show that nudism is normal and even preferable.

              Interesting point. Notwithstanding the nude beach (where my wife experienced gawking, and therefore has no desire to return to); she has not had any such negative experiences at either nude or C/O resorts. But at this stage she still prefers the nude resort.

              I think it's mostly psychological. There's still a sense of "vulnerability" for many people when they are nude around people who are not; and thus increased self-consciousness and skepticism as to the "true motivation" behind the covered person's presence there. When my wife walks into the resort and sees that everyone is nude, she feels on "common ground" with everyone there; and thus doesn't experience any misgivings about being nude around them. If I was to take a similar poll at LOTW, I would bet good money that the majority of the women there feel the same way.

              Anecdotally, we were at a C/O resort once; and we went inside the rec room to play ping-pong. My wife was wearing a cover-up; and playing ping-pong were two other couple in various modes of attire (one couple was nude, and the other couple was wearing bottoms). My wife chose to just go topless, "defaulting" so to speak to the same mode of undress as the "least nude couple".
              A year later we were in a similar situation at a nude venue; except it was pool. There was another couple, nude; and my wife felt totally comfortable staying naked to play pool with them. As a matter of fact she socialized with them more extensively than we did with the other couples at the C/O resort. They were all very nice and friendly people; but being in an "everyone naked" setting made my wife that much more disposed to socialize and play pool clothesfree.

              Just food for thought.

                That makes sense

                  I made a mistake when I wrote "I did an informal survey of the women there and asked if they felt more sexually harrassed in a clothed or nude resort, and all said nude" I MEANT TO SAY CLOTHED. I am so angry with myself. It was the most important point I was trying to make and I got it wrong! To be clear, women at nudist resorts were LESS sexually harrassed than they were at clothed resorts. I truly apologize.

                      And I took it to mean "women felt less harassed at nude resorts then resorts where there is clothing (C/O) allowed" lol!
                      But yes; that "informal feedback" doesn't surprise me since "etiquette" is more enforced and practiced at nudist resorts.

                      For women who feel self-conscious about being naked around clothed people at the resort, there is always the option of just staying in the pool area, which at many resorts is designated at "nude only." But my wife, for example, also enjoys doing activities outside the pool area, such as paddle-boarding on the lake. And because the people at our resort are also nude by the lake: she feels much more comfortable being "out there naked" than if there were clothed people hanging around.

                      Hence the value of the "nude mandatory" resort. It just allows her - as I assume many other women - to be comfortable freely and openly naked throughout the resort, than being "confined" to the pool area.
