Naturist Rules and Etiquette
There are some things you must learn about naturist etiquette. When you go to any clothing optional or nudist location, whether it is a beach, resort or private home there is a common etiquette which you need to understand and obey. Breaching the etiquette and refusing to correct your behaviour if requested, may lead to cancel your booking during your stay and no refund will be given.
#1 Nude Areas
Often only some areas of the property are reserved for practising nudism. Other areas or facilites may require full clothing. Check this with your host latest on arrival.
Carry a towel with you anywhere you go. This is to be used under you wherever you decide to park yourself, sitting or lying. Always use a towel under you!
If you are going in to a sauna, pool or jacuzzi used also by other guests or hosts — shower properly before going in. It is mostly because it helps to keep the water cleaner longer, use less chemicals in it – and just makes others feel more comfortable to use the same amenities after or with you.
Typically use of camera among nude people is not allowed. Some people just might not want to end in your photo album bare naked. Anyways if you feel to capture the moment is a must, you can ask each and everyone in the shot to give their permission.
#5 Eye Contact
It is considered very rude to talk to other people bodies in the textile world. In naturist community it is considered even more rude. Keep eye contact while having conversation with you naked counterparts.
# 6 No Staring at People
A nudist environment should be a safe, nonsexual space. The whole point of going nude in a safe environment is being comfortable in your natural skin. So please, don’t stare or you will be considered a perv.
Many Naturist BnB places are ”clothing optional”. It means you can wear some clothing if you prefer. On the other hand some may practice strict ”nude only” rule. In both cases clothes are allowed when its cold or to protect your body. However, lingerie is not considered proper attire.
#8 No sexual behaviour
Don’t show any sexual activity in a public. Naturally you can hold hands and kiss if you feel to. Use your common sense. Passionate kissing and touching in public may get others feels uncomfortable. Use your common sense and leave the sex acts in the privacy of your room.
These are actually very uncommon. Even if you are new to naturism. But if it does, just cover it up – you have the towel with you, remember? If you are lying under the sun, turn around would be enough. If you see someone with an purposely showing his erection, let a host know about this. They know how to deal with it.
