      I saw it, but imo it was weak. its like they were making the nude people as some kind of nasty people or something. and they were like "eww they have small wee-wees!" I dunno, it was ok to me but i didnt like how they talked abut the nudists behind theyre back, like trishelle...on every episode of the real world she was naked with sum randon dude, but here she was like "OMG NO!!" but at least she gt naked at the end. BUt i gotta give it some props cuz it sold nudism a bit more to the public (although half of it was negative) All in all, about a 6 out of 10 rating to me.

        I didn't notice the mention of it on the website until now, so I missed it... dangit.

          I was hoping for something positive, but didn't see it. Not as entertainment and not as affirming naturism. Erik Estrada's comments were especially offensive, and totally adverse to nudity...and because they were colorful the audience heard more of him than just about anyone else.

          Entertainment value? Dullsville.

            They air it again on THursday night so you have a chance to see it.

            I need to agree with the others. I too felt that it was a double edged sword. It got the notion of Naturist resorts to the main stream, yet it also did not paint them in the best light. Hopefully the texile world will hear the right message.

              We, hw and myself, just saw the episode. Thought it was pretty good. I especially enjoyed the humor. Trishelle (sp) was the only one that went completely nude at the restaurant. Ron dropped his pants only, but none of the others participated, except for the spa scene, when several others participated, but only slightly.

              I felt sorry for Tammy Faye, for she is not into nudity. It was nice for the network to set her up for the night at a motel across the street, but I think they should have at least pulled her to the side and told her she was going to a nudist resort first. That part was unfair.

              Corey and Corky, when are you signing autographs? Great to see both of you in the episode. I'm sure there were others there as well, but I don't know what they look like. Great job. By the way, are there any copies available of the episode that does not have the "blurred" version? If so, please let us know if they could be purchased.

              Again, thanks for the notice and great job.

                I thought the show was pretty boring. Was expecting to laugh my phants off but ended up saying, "that's it?"

                Was glad to see Cory but didn't see Corky, than again, not sure what Corky looks like.

                I knew Trishelle would get naked. After a few drinks, that girl will do anything. I watched the season of Real World she was on and all this gir did was drink drink drink, sex sex sex. In Road Rules, sex sex sex.

                Overall, I was dissapointed with the cast and the comments. I knew none would get naked. One thing I noticed about the resort was that there were a lot of young nudists

                  I saw it to wish they would have had showed the celbs talking with the nudist more so the general public could have learned what body acceptance is all about, instead of all the rude remarks about the "wee-wees" [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img] I would give it about a 4 out of 10. Really liked the looks of the resort, I?ll have to make a trip down there sometime. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

                    I think this disaster should remind all of us to be very, very careful. A reality tv show should set off warning flags. Porn star participation should set off even more. How we present ourselves to the public is very important. Everyone involved, despite good intentions, should have been very wary. Hopefully next time we can present a more positive view of naturism.

                      Croydon: Corky was the photographer in the background taking the pictures. There were some real good shots of him, especially in the restaurant. He was standing behind the cast members taking pictures.

                      I'm sure there were others, but I don't know what they look like. I kind of liked the show, but, yea, the cast was very "childish" about some of their comments, especially the different sizes of "wee wees", older nudists in attendance, different sizes (bodies), etc.

                      We still have a long way to go. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

                        Is the video he was shooting of Surreal Life available for sale? Interesting to see what was really happening-as opposed to what they showed on the show.

                          Personally, I thought the episode was mostly humorous. And, to be fair, let's see this from a nonnudist POV, i.e., how would you like to be "ambushed", be unexpectedly confronted with something completely outside your experience, and have ratings and sensationalism be the major motivation in the show's creators perpetrating this. For that, I can forgive them their 'tudes. On the basis of the above, I must say that the presence of cameras had an effect on cast behavior, not so much based on prudery, but based on not giving in to the sensationalism their producers were clearly looking for.

                          The attitudes expressed by the cast members were their own, and not the producers or the network. For that, I'll give the show's producers some respect. As bad as some here think it was, it could have been a lot worse. They focused on the cast, their actions, and their interactions. And isn't that what the show is supposed to be about? A couple of them proved themselves to be jerks. One proved herself a hypocrite. Another proved himself a dirty, old man in the brashest way possible. However, at least one cast member had the courage to at least give it an honest try; the source of that courage notwithstanding. Heck, she might have even been comfortable with idea if she'd been amongst companions of her own choosing rather than those she was contractually obliged to be with.

                          Again, I found it humorous, real, and if there was any negativity, it was generated by cast members themselves, and therefore, a reflection of them, not nudists or nudism.

                            We too saw the show last night and here are my comments,
                            I think the comments of the surreal members was out of line, but we cannot control that.
                            I was not sure, why Corky (or whatever his name is) had to tape the encounter?? Why was that necessary? It gave the impression, that people are filmed doing all kinds of thing, and maybe that was not appropriate.
                            I just wish, the members would have more interacted with the surreal members, but what the heck, they are not giving prime time.
                            Overall, I would rate it 5 out of 10, and since I am involved in TB business (not professionaly), I can see that the editing was geared toward shocking, entertainement, something different, etc.
                            Not too bad but certainly not too good as well. But I am sure, the owner of the resorts had no input how it was edited at the end.
                            BTW, we been to different resorts in Palm Springs but never to this one.
                            We love it there.

                              Wat in 'ell would you expect of someone who calls a penis a weewee? The last time I had a weewee was when I was three years old. I don't particularly find "vulgar" terminology for sex organs offensive, actually I think c**t is a perfectly good word as "The Vagina Monologues" so perfectly pointed out, but in a public venue you would hope that in this modern age people would be able to come up with the proper term, not weewee for garsh sake.
                              Parenthetically, I went to a doctor a few years back, and older gentleman of the "old school" because I had gotten into some dry leafless poison oak and hadn't even known it. It was a very bad case. As the doctor was examining me, I was nude of course, I reached down absent mindedly and scratched my crotch area. He said, "Careful, you certainlly don't want to get poison oak on your "thingy"". Thingy? This from a professional medical man. sigh!!
