  • What can be done to stop people from having sex on nude beaches?

    I was recently scanning entries in a Facebook group for a popular nude beach when I came across a thread that started with a newspaper article about a couple being arrested for openly engaging in sex on a public beach. The actual beach where this occurred was not a recognized nude beach, but that is beside the point.

    Several of the responses in the Facebook thread were along the lines of "We've all done that." or "That's why you bring a windscreen to the beach." I started composing an indignant response to the effect of "No, we don't all do that." Then my mind drifted back many years ago to when I was young and foolish. We were on a nude beach in northern California on a quiet weekday. We walked to the southern end of the beach and climbed over some boulders to find a small patch of sand that was exposed only at low tide. I won't defend what happened next except to say that it was her idea.

    I am aware that the typical excuse that officialdom uses to ban nudity on beaches is that people were having sex. I have witnessed couples on nude beaches lying in each other's arms. It is my practice to look away. I worked with a gentleman who once bragged about having sex with his girlfriend within sight of other beach-goers on Fire Island in New York. Nudity is now banned at that beach for exactly that reason.

    My own idea is to charge for parking at nude beaches and use the money to provide restrooms, lifeguards, and security patrols. If you look at aerial photographs of Haulover Beach in Miami, you will see that the nude section typically draws at least ten times as many people as other sections of the beach. Charging for parking at nude beaches should actually be a net money maker for localities even if extra cost is incurred for security patrols.

    I have been told that Cap d'Agde has instituted a policy of tolerating people having sex in one small section of the beach, which keeps the rest of the beach family friendly. That might be a viable approach in France, but it would be way too controversial in the United States.

    You provided the idea--to have officials patrol the beaches and stop all untoward behaviour. Unfortunately, nude beaches tend to be out-of-the-way areas and are not official. The beaches are either simply so far away that patrols ignore it or are tacitly accepted by the officials who don't care as long as no sexual activity is happening. It is easier on official nude beaches as they are usually more crowded and patrolled.

    So ultimately, the only way to prevent sex on nude beaches is to make them official and grant them lifeguard and other patrols to prevent sexual activities. The other thing would be to have at unoffficial beaches people who are virtually always there and will encourage those who are having sex to stop. The problem is those people would not have any authorization to do anything more.

      I will confess to having sex on a non-nude beach well after midnight and far away from other beach goers. We could have been seen if someone got close enough, and we were nude when a guy did approach. If you are going to do something like that, you should be very careful and discrete. As to having patrols, people find a way to get around restricitons all the time. A patrol might stop some, but not all.

        ^^ That sounds like the pina colada song. "... If you like makin' love at midnight In the dunes on the cape ...".

        What goes on after midnight is an issue that is largely ignored on all beaches, not just nude ones.

        I had a coworker who was arrested while sleeping in a car late at night in a beach parking lot. The reason that he was there was that his buddy and his buddy's girlfriend were making whoopee on the beach. People don't complain about what happens on the beach late at night, so officialdom is more concerned about enforcing parking rules.

          I had the plenty of sex on nude beaches in my youth. It seems a matter of discretion and public respect but there are always those who push the window. While I never wanted to be seen, we did occasionally get caught at it which always seemed embarrassing. I don’t think it’s possible to regulate that kind of behavior without upsetting some people, particularly when just about anywhere you can find some “get a room” activity.

          Pretty wishy-washy response, but I have no answers!

            Richard Mason has a beach ambassador Program at Haulover that talks to the pervs and other people that are doing inappropriate things on a family friendly beach.

            The Treasure Coast Naturists run a similar program at Blind Creek. Inform and if the person doesn't comply then call 911.
