Obnoxious or just different?
Ok, let's stir things up a little and talk about some things that might be a little controversial, smoking, drinking, costumes, etc. So my interpretation of nudists or naturists are those folks that love to be natural in nature. They love to be healthy. And, they don't equate nudity with sex. So then why are there so many nudists that wear high heels and provocative little outfits by the pool? Why does naked time mean it's time to open the cooler and crack open lots of beer or hard alcohol, get drunk, get loud, and light up some cigarettes? Am I a prude or does this offend others too? Now, I'm all about people having the right to express themselves, but I find it inappropriate, especially in environments that tout themselves as family friendly. While many nudists are trying to educate society that nudity is not sexual there are other nudists and resorts that are promoting the sexual side of nudity to bring in newbies or to hook up with others for "parties". Here's an example, Ponderosa Sun Club in Indiana has an annual contest http://nudes-a-poppin.com/nap2010new/ where both genders dance in front of an audience, which includes non-members. The dancers use poles, G-strings, etc to rile up the audience and win titles such as "Best Boobs". Porn stars assist with the facilitating of the contest. Now some of you may be saying to yourselves, "Sounds good. I'm going to look them up." But for me it feats the idea of nudism and transcends the nudist camp to an outdoor strip joint. I want to hear from you. Should pole dancing contests be a regular activity at nudist resorts? Should smoking and drinking not only be expected but be encouraged? If not, what should we do about it? Should you be told not to laugh out loud when chatting with friends or should freedom of expression without restraint be the law of the land?
