A Note on Nude Beaches

There is something I would like to get off my chest: why is it that when someone, anyone, utters the words "clothing-optional beach" a good number of men get this grin on their faces? You know the one that I mean. It's the one filled with so much smarm and innuendo, as if they were saying "Oh yeah, that'll be a blast". Have they not been keeping up with the times? Have they not watched "Eurotrip"? I suppose my issue here would be the fact that some men are still under the impression that if they go to a nude beach, they will see hot naked babes. Allow me to tell you this now: you are sadly mistaken.


First and foremost, you have to understand that clothing-optional beaches are CLOTHING-OPTIONAL; this means that there is a chance that the folk there are clothed, and that there may be no nude people there at all. Secondly, you cannot honestly expect that only hot women would take off their clothes in a beach; to be sure, it is more likely that you will find out-of-shape individuals of a certain age naked in these types of beaches. And these individuals? Not necessarily females either. Thirdly, clothing-optional beaches aren't there for you to have an ogle at some bare flesh. They are like any other beaches that you may have heard of - only, you can choose to wear or not wear any clothing at all.


I would also like to point out that most clothing-optional beaches have separate areas for people who are naked and people who are not. Often, the two groups do not necessarily meet each other, and considering the type of misconceptions non-nudists have, then I will have to say that it is most definitely all for the best. Clothing optional folk like being left alone as much as any other client of the beach, and as such, they deserve respect and their own space. They let us do their own thing; let them do theirs without harassment. It is only polite.


There are many other things to do in a clothing optional beach anyway, things that are far more fun and productive than wandering around looking for naked people. For example, Scott Creek Beach is just as well-known for surfing as it is for being clothing optional. You can hike there, play with your pets there, have a picnic there. It has beautiful scenery connected to its name, and exploring it promises to be fruitful.


I would like to say that it is also unfair of people to focus on the "clothing optional" part of the description of the beaches, when they hold in themselves some merit that goes way beyond being a place where people are comfortable in their own skin and not much else. I suppose my point is this: please think about who and what you are disrespecting with your misconceptions. By being so shallow you will likely miss out on something better.
