These guidelines pertain to traditional nudism that is often observed in nudist clubs.
In case you wish to have a shower, make sure you have an extra towel just to use for sitting on.
·Don't take snaps without permission: Most clubs and resorts prohibit the use of cameras. However, if there is no such restriction, remember not to take photos of anyone without their consent.
·Never stare at others: One of the basic principles of naturism is showing respect to others. Never gawk at others'genitals or breasts. Experienced nudists are aware of this natural curiosity. However, if you continue to do so, it might lead to serious consequences. As a nudist, you are expected to make eye to eye contact.
Although there are no restriction on the use of sunglasses when in the sun, wearing them when they aren't required is likely to arouse suspicion.
·Don't engage in indecent behavior: Any kind of sexual activity at a public place in an atmosphere of non-sexual nudity is considered inappropriate. While other mistakes pertaining to nudist etiquettes can either be ignored or overlooked, this one is likely to land you in serious trouble.
A dreaded erection is something that most men who are new to nudism are worried about. Firstly, in a nudist setting, it rarely happens and even if it does, there is no need to panic. Nonetheless, sporting an erection is definitely considered as lewd behavior. So, when it happens, the best thing to do is cover it up.
·Understand and follow club rules: Each club has its own set of rules and regulations for guests as well as members. These rules are verbally explained during a formal orientation and usually a hard copy of the same is provided. Even first time guests are expected to follow these guidelines and in case you make a mistake, don't expect forgiveness.
·Speak effectively and be a good listener: Be friendly and pleasant. You will notice that nudists are a very friendly lot and like to have fun. However, it still wouldn't be a great idea to ask members non-stop about nudism and what they feel about it.
