  • Why be naked? Nudists explain the joys of being bare

    Carolyn Hawkins' husband asked her to go to a nudist resort with him. Sorry, she told him, but no thank you.

    Hawkins now works as the public relations coordinator for the American Association of Nude Recreation

    IMHO, she ought to be fired. AANR does a terrible job of PR.

      Why do you say that? I'm no fan of AANR myself, but Ms. Hawkins is doing as effective a job as she can, AANR budget permitting.

      And I think her message reverberates - those skeptical of nudism CAN turn 180 degrees TOWARD it. I think that's an important message for a lot of guys in here whose wives either "have no interest" or would never try it. Although - yeah - if you were taking a reluctant spouse somewhere and she agreed to a first visit, Cypress Cove would be one of the best places to go.

        Just look at AANR's web site. The front page hasn't been updated in months. The last blog entry has to do with Earth Day. Nothing about Nude Rec week? No article about the Skinny Dip? In this day (and for many years) a company or organization's web page is their most public first impression.

        Maybe I put too much stock in their web site since I'm a techie, but I don't think so.

          OK - you have a point about the website, but I don't know who the webmaster is down there....and - considering it's now "nudist weather" in all the U.S., yeah, there should be updates. But I don't know who is responsible for those. But let me look further...

          ON FURTHER REVIEW - if you drill down on "NEWS AND EVENTS" tab on that page - it's not on the FRONT page (where it should be, to lure you inside) but there is info there on the skinny-dip and also individual club activities.

          The info is there - it's just (again) not-so-great website design. There probably should be news and events on the splash screen - when you first go there.

          A few years back you couldn't find a club near you - they had a map of North America, made a website change and "buried" the map. They changed that, finally putting a link on the front page.

            On the front page there is a widget about the skinny dip. That leads to a story and list of sites where it will be held. But on the "News and Events" page there is no link to the longer story and location says "TBA". PR fail.

            And to jump on one of your pet topics: travel expositions and similar trade shows. No effort by AANR. That is a strategy decision rather than incompetence, but IMHO the website just shows incompetence.

            Oh, and there is a prominent "New on AANR.com" widget. It's been the same for months. But if you drill down to the Government Affairs Updates page there is a story from June 23. Incompetent.
