Re:Naked or thong?

Date Posted:07/24/2011 03:21:27Copy HTML

I agree with John Howard, there is no law against looking ridiculous, which is what I think some old men look when they strut like pecocks in torpedo suits.

For some, wearing a thong on a nude beach is their first experences thonging, and they wear a thong because they are not yet comfortable nude,
or are afraid that if a nude picture of them were to turn up it would have devastating job or social consequences. While their fear is probably not reality, it is still their fear.

There is a nude beach etiquette, there has to be otherwise the pervs would drive the women and children away.  Haulover beach has beach ambassadors to educate about beach etiquette and to quietly deal with people who are a nuance. The beach etiquette, and the people who volunteer time "help" the beach goers understand it, is the very foundation of the Haulover Beach success. 

That is why I think it is inportant for visitors to understand the nude beach etiquette, and not act like buffoons or pervs.  The more normal and non-sexual you act helps make the beach normal and non-sexual, which in time may lead to other public nude beaches.  We need more nude beaches in cities and well populated places, not just at the ends of the earth where no one goes.  For this change to happen the existing nude beaches must be seen as normal and non-sexual. So lend a hand to the cause and keep the erotic displays for home or your pool party.

 OS777 - wow! guess I hit a sore spot somewhere!  You are correct in that there are no codified dress codes for nude (or C/O) beaches, just like there are generally no codified dress rules for attending a business meeting and, yes, I have seen some rather flagrant differences from the usual in some meetings.
Philosophically, naturists view nude beaches and other nude venues as places where non-erotic, non-sexual nudity can take place. They talk of the acceptance of everyone without the statements that one's clothing makes in the "textile" world. When at a nude beach, MY OPINION is that I want to respect that and dress (in this case not dress) appropriately and leave the somewhat sexual and erotic suits for elsewhere.
I will, however, respect the sartorial decisions of others and agree with John Howard that, in the end, it is not my business nor even my right to try to enforce my personal opinion.

Up until recently, my answer would have been a thong for sure. After several recent experiences at nude resorts and going nude on the beach, I would have to say either is good :) I think at this point, if I can go nude - I prefer nude. Otherwise, the naughtiness/sexiness of wearing a thong/G or sheer suit is also quite pleasant....and I like having the tanlines to show off when I am nude.

  If I didn't have serious thong tan lines I'd like to maintain, and I don't want to get hard at the wrong time, I might go for nude.  As it is, I stick with thongs almost always.  I DO love showing off the tan lines though, so that makes it a toss up in some situations.

Going nude feels the best and I would vote that is my personal desire if possible.  Thonging adds another dimension in that it can look and feel sexy.  There are so many options to wear.  So me seeing people thonging is more desirable than nude because I think nudism is so natural.  Not that thonging is not but it definitely adds character to the body regardless of the shape and size.

We really like tan lines so most of the time we'll both wear a narrow thong or g-string. Occasionally we'll sun nude on the back deck but not too often.

Like modelnude and jeffthong, I really like thong tanlines.  The majority of times I wear thongs is at Gunnison beach in NJ.  As most of you know, it is a clothing optional beach, and almost everyone is nude.   Before I was married, I used to go alone and would always be nude.   Once I got married, and found out how much my wife likes tanlines (plus, she actually prefers me in a thong vs nude on CO beaches), I have exclusively worn thongs ever since.  I actually prefer the freedom of being nude, but lets just say the effects of my thong tanlines are felt long after I leave the beach (if you know what I mean).   One summer, I had monster thong tanlines from alot of backyard tanning and a trip to south beach, I actually did go nude and exposed my thong tan to the whole beach.  I must say I rather enjoyed that.   If I could get a great thong tan some other way, I would probably go nude at Gunnison.  Since Gunnison is basically my only way to get a microsuit tan...I thong it when I go ( For those interested....wife is always topless but wearing a G bottom...I like tanlines on bottom as well!!!)

Proud to say I've done both! Been to two nude beaches and was totally nude both times. Went to Mexico and wore a thong for 3 days and came home with a rocking tan line. Hit the tanning bed after that to maintain the line, keep it crisp and give the color a boost.

My dream is to tan in a thong at a nude beach then remove the thong and prance around showing off my thong tan line. When I tan in my backyard I wear a thong - we have close neighbors and I don't want to get into trouble!

I enjoy both and have done both. This year alone, I went nude at Haulover, Gunnison and in the NC OBX. I also enjoy wearing thongs or better yet, g-strings to non-nude beaches. I do like tanlines, find them super sexy but also really enjoy going full nude when possible.

I too find it sexier to wear a thong to the beach.  I think leaving something, even though not much, covered is sexier then nude.  I love the reactions I get.  usually the best reactions are from middle aged women who are not shy.lol

I think that you are right that many micro suits, especially at a nude beach, are sexier than simply being naked. The whole purpose of promoting nude beaches is to encourage non-sexual nudity. Sexuality is much more on display on a textile beach than on a nude beach. That is why my opinion is that sexy suits (especially hyper sexy ones) are not appropriate for a nude beach.

sorry, but it drives me nuts when i hear someone here catagorize something as inappropriate........with obvious respect to coyote - call off your old tired ethics - laws and the generally accepted practices of consenting adults, i thought we were the live and let live types, here.........

as for whatever non-sexual nudity is, i don't want any.......nudity is the celebration of one's sexuality.......i don't want to dumb it down or see anyone else dumb it down, treat it as if it's a big nothing, or attempt to strip it of its' mystery and charisma......

whew, didn't mean to sound so harsh, but if someone wants to be semi-nude at a nude beach, that is their judgement - and their's alone - to make.......

Israelthong- some of my best experiences wearing a thong was at the beaches of Ashdod and North end of Tel Aviv. Use to walk from one end of the crowded beaches to the other in just a tiny grey (transparent when wet) thong. more like a g- string. Wish I was still there.

tanlines2thin,

WOW! Guess that I hit a nerve. I didn't mean to offend, but I do think there is a place for the concept of appropriateness. I wouldn't wear a business suit when going to a football game, and wouldn't wear a micro suit (only) to a performance at the opera. While I am certainly "live and let live", I would consider both of these "inappropriate".  I would also defend the right of the individual to make such inappropriate judgements, which is why I indicated that the opinion was mine alone.

If you want to preserve the "mystery and charisma" of nudity, then I suggest that you not go to nude beaches where there is no mystery at all rather than attempting to change the nature of the beach by wearing suggestive clothing IMHO.

Micro....might I point out something.    Gunnison, Haulover, Blacks, and most of the "nude" beaches you are referring to are, in fact, "Clothing Optional" beaches.   Me, my wife, and apparently several others on the board, are exercising our option to wear a specific type of clothing on the beach.   And....If you look in many of the owners boxes on the sunday telecasts of the NFL games, you will find many people in business suits
bmicro #177

Re:Naked or thong?

Owners box - business suit,sounds appropriate (depending on the owner). Nosebleed seats - business suit,sounds a bit inappropriate to me. My point exactly. Don't get me wrong, ifasked for my opinion, I would tell the business suit wearer in the nosebleedseats that there might be more appropriate clothing to wear. However, I wouldnever suggest that the individual in question be prevented from exercising theoption to wear a specific type of clothing nor would I volunteer my opinion inan unsolicited manner. The same applies here. I accept your decision to wear board shorts at a conservative beach as the appropriate thing to wear. My choice would be to wear a small bikini (if thongs were not allowed). You may consider my bikini inappropriate at that beach.That's cool. I would even listen carefully to your reasons and give them some consideration.My major point is that wearing suits on a nude (clothing optional) beach that one would not wear on a textile beach because it is "sexy" is, IMHO, a misunderstanding of the nude beach concept and the justification for their existence on public lands. Again, my personal opinion expressed on a message thread devoted to this topic.

Some of the Europeans might correct me, but it seems the 'display' type suits that can only be worn in public on nude (that's what we call them) / clothing optional / free beaches are confined to the USA. I can't recall ever having seen them hear in Australia at all. On a nude beach, most will be nude. Those who aren't will wear what they would wear on any other beach - mostly boardies, sometimes speedos, some women topless.

On other beaches Aussies will wear what each as individuals feel is appropriate. Eventually one comes to discover that most have a more conservative standard for themselves than they do for others. Hence most women will not go topless at the beach, but very few people would bat an eyelid if a woman does. Similarly, thongs have very rarely ever been worn at council pools, but when I wore a g-string (minimal but fully covered my genitalia) to those pools and behave like everybody else there, hardly anybody cares.

When one goes beyond what reasonable people think is appropriate for others, problems may occur. If I was to wear a suit at the local pool that was totally sheer or showed part of my penis, I would be told to cover up or leave. It may very well result in a ban on all thongs as well; not a good outcome. If this suit was worn to a nude beach, I suspect most reasonable people would consider it inappropriate. While he wouldn't get asked to leave, word would undoubtably get round that there is some weird guy at the nude beach trying to drawer attention to his genitals. Personally, even I would be inclined to agree with them. Result? Undoubtably less people would be prepared to try a nude beach and possibly increased pressure to revoke the nude beach status. Again, not a good outcome.

While the rights of the individual are important, one has to consider the effects of pursuing those rights to the n'th degree. It may not be in our best interests.

Thong above all. Gives support whilst going naked obviously doesn't.
Reminds me of when one of my girlfriend's best mates first found out I wear thongs, and she was like, "Why?" I replied by asking her why she wore a bra. "For support," came the answer. Well, exactly!

Re:Naked or thong?

 I would have to say thong, whether we are talking about swimwear or underwear. The main thing for me is support up front, which you don't get when naked (or even in a G-string). The other argument is that a small amount of cover can add to the effect, with not everything up front and on display.

Prefer naked because it evens out any thong tan lines i gotten previously. Having no tan lines helps avoid odd remarks that can be taken to offend me. 
During late spring having thong tan lines left over from winter vacations, i was sunbathing nude at the beach, heard remark from someone saying, "put on your thong". Didn't know if they were facetious or angry seeing me nude... 
Best to keep even tan in locker room situations, guys don't get shocked looks or feel homophobic seeing thong tan line. Better to keep things closer to the vest then displaying i wear thongs in the locker area from seeing tan lines. At least some guys will believe my entire body has higher pigmentation thus no tan lines shown. Even though i wear thongs everyday working out. Don't need to hear he.hee.. or giggles from women noticing i wore a thong because of tan lines, got more then enough childish, immature, evil reactions from them to anger me already...
If i had to choose, naked tanning at the beach is ultimate relaxation for me. Wearing a thong g-string at the beach is slightly more anxiety driven knowing i'm usually the only one wearing it thus criticism will rear its ugly head sooner then later. Yet being quasi nudist i still can get over the fact wearing a thong is not much of a leap given the right location or timing surrounded with tolerant people which you can only hope for..

Nude when possible, g-string or thong when it's allowed.  It is in practice impossible to know exactly what is legal in a given place, especially here in the US, so it's a ridiculous guessing game.  Thong? G-string, Rio, men vs. women?  I can't walk at all, so when people say just go to a nude beach they are denying me the right to go naked outdoors, except on my property (if I have any) and shielded from any view.  There is not a single public location in America where nudity is legal *and* accessible, and that is shameful.  Just how much public land is actually legal for nudity?  How many miles of beach? 

We live in a crazy country where we claim to prize freedom, but nudity and sexual expression is banned nearly everywhere.  Sadly most other countries have similarly backward policies; once again the modern Europeans get things right (well, much better than we do).  End of a rant heard often here, sorry!  :)

The RokushakuFondoshi is a single strip of cloth, that is 8-9' wide and 3 yardslong. It wraps around the waist and between the legs to form acomfortable and secure loin cloth.
