male naturists-  do you put spf sunscreen on your genitals?  I know that that part of your body has the highest absorbtion rate.  Anybody know about this?  I wear 100spf on my face and that can burn the eyes and taste toxic when it gets on my lips.  Is it safe to lube my privates up?  Dobby

Dobby,  YES!  I am fully nude much of the time, and in the sun I always apply SPF 30 all over.  I find that higher SPFs are thicker and don't spread as evenly.  Nudists carry a towel that can also keep the area under your brow dry and prevent (mostly) sunscreen getting in your eyes.  I do sometimes get into a thong situation, but really prefer full nudity, spiced up a bit with a gold (colored) mid-shaft ring (30 mm. from Tangaland).  The ring gets about the same number of comments at a nudist club that a G-string gets at a beach.

I love to wear thongs so it never comes into my mind to go nude. Wearing thongs at remote and secluded beaches are much exciting then being bare. Others on the beach definitely will look at you,
I made that experience one day on a greek beach on Kos. I was the only one thonging, the others guys were naked but everybody was staring at me. I got a little but nervous at the beginng, but later I started to "play" with the guys by pretending that I did not notive anything. I did everything so that my best part stood up (12 o clock...)
It is a much stronger statement to wear an thong then being nude.

 Thong as much as possible but only because there aren't enough places in SouthernCalifornia to go nude.  I definitely use SPF 30+ in the genitals area at nude beaches AND when thonging.  I was given a tip by another nudist years ago: "Always lotion up your face and balls, just make sure you do it in that order. Otherwise, your face may smell like balls..."

When I'm at the beaches here in Florida - I'm very comfortable stripping down to my thong. I tend to frequent (Bowmans Beach - Ft. Desotto Beach - Haulover Beach).
Depending where I am at (which part of the beach and which beach) I will strip off my thong (get naked) either before I go in the water (at Haulover) or strip it off in the water at some of the other beaches. I usually like to have my thong or g-string close by so I'll wrap it around my wrist or around my ankle. 
Preference is to have a thong tan line - so I'm typically wearing my thong on the beach or walking along the beach.

I'd say now I'm of the same preference as jtanguy. I enjoy wearing just a thong at non-nude beaches and like having a thong tanline. So even though being nude is preferable, I'd still try to find a balance to achieve thong or g tanlines.

 I like a variety.  I'll wear bulge thongs, super skimpy g strings & various exposure strings (jovana c ring string. just ordered the new naughty string) depending on the beach or my mood.  Never really absolutly nude as I like to maintain the tan lines.

My favorite when it's possible is "nude" in an" expose your" G string.  Usually one of my wild c ring g strings or a horizon ring thong or a "loop with ring" from Tangaland is my favorite.  Something where I can wear something but tan everything.  To avoid a tanline I will change suits frequently.

If I must wear something- ass you know by now- I wear as little as possible.  One sided strings, one string over the shoulder, a baggie string with waist band or thigh string only or baggie alone will make me happy.

 This one is always a challenge for me.  As much as I love to be nude, my wife loves my thong tanlines.  I have to admit...I love having them long after the summer is over...they remind me of thonging and the beach ...which is nice.  We have not gone nude at the nude beach for ages (although wife is frequently topless).  Every time we hit Gunnison, I have a teardrop skinz Spartan G-string on and my wife is topless in a Malibu strings kimmy bottom teardrop G.  She wears G-string underwear exclusively as everyday wear and I wear none, but we are both frequently nude around the house (when the kids are not home)

Prior to reading this thread, I would go to Haulover and wonder what was wrong with the (very few) individuals that would wear swimwear (thongs or even bikinis) at a nude beach. Now I know, it is not extraordinary shyness or something, it is the preservation of tan lines. Not my choice, but it makes sense.
SlidingG #224

Re:Naked or thong?

I don't think of Haulover as a nude beach, but rather as a clothing-optional beach, where one can wear as much or as little as they like, or nothing at all, knowing everyone respects each others' choices.  I'm not about to judge why someone else prefers to stay covered.  It's the 'freedom of choice, with mutual respect' attitude that prevails there that I like so much.  

For instance, I recall one delightful scene last summer, as I lay nude near the water sunning:  one attractive young couple from over my right shoulder strolled nude into the water to cool off and romp about, and shortly after another attractive young couple from over my left shoulder strolled in, she in a modest bikini and he in board shorts.  The two couples began interacting socially, and next thing I knew, looking back over my left shoulder, the second guy was standing on their towel, nude, his boardies around his ankles, busily applying sunscreen to his very white mid-section and private parts.  Grinning from ear to ear, he soon rejoined his wife and the other couple in the water, and they resumed their pleasant playfulness.  I respect him for having the balls to try going nude, and I respect her for remaining dressed -- since that was her choice -- and for allowing her husband the space to try this wonderful new experience. 

For me, Haulover's charm lies in making these kinds of experiences available to newbies -- exploring, enjoying, discovering the simple pleasures of nudity, responsibly, and in a safe, forgiving environment.  I wouldn't call this chap a nudist, at least not yet, but just a normal, decent, adventurous lad, trying something new . . . . and finding he loves it!  Maybe next time she'll join him.  Or maybe next time he'll decide it was fun, but better to stay covered, like her, for whatever reason.  The beauty is, the choices are theirs, and going forward, whatever they wear, or not, they can continue to enjoy the vibes of the venue and celebrate how everyone is free to choose how they spend their day in the sun, sand and surf.

 SlidingG, you have such a great way of wording things.   You have the perfect outlook on what a nude beach is for and all about.   I have witnessed all types of people at Haulover.    Some are clothed while others are not.   Some are new at nudity while others have spent their lifetime shedding clothes.  It always intrigues me to watch them upon arrival and while they are there.   Yes, I'm a "people watcher" I guess.   For whatever reason they are there, and regardless of whether they are clad in swimwear or nude, we have to respect each other as individuals who are simply out to have fun and enjoy the beach.   With that said, I will tell you about an incident that occurred the last time I was there.   I was sitting on the beach near the water when I saw a body builder type guy walking near the waters edge.   As he got closer I could see that he had an @@@@@@.  He walked on by with no one saying anything about it.    A while later he came back by again and still had an @@@@@@.   Again, no one around me said anything.  No one screamed at him.   No one did anything except just look at him and then look away.   Personally, I was not offended.   In fact, I complimented him on his physique as he walked by and he thanked me for the compliment.   Maybe I look upon nudity as something totally natural.  Others do not.   I feel totally comfortable being nude in front of others.   I am just the way God made me and have no apologies for it.   Yes, I have gotten an @@@@@@ on the beach.  I'm sure many of you have also.   I have walked from my towel to the water with an @@@@@@.   For some reason I didn't feel embarrassed by it.  I was just erect at that given moment and was ready to get in the water.   I didn't flaunt it nor did I hide it.   I'm a man and this is just one of the states we find ourselves in.....clothed or unclothed.   Like you, SlidingG, I believe we must have mutual respect for each other as we experience our freedom of choice in swimwear or in the nude. The choice is ours!

Naked or thong?  Naked is nice, but rarely possible -- though Haulover is an occasional, joyful exception -- and I do like thongs -- they're bold and daring, good-looking, and comfortable to wear on regular beaches, around regular folks.    

Yet they result in tan lines, which I'd rather avoid altogether.  Any tan lines just don't look good when nude, like at Haulover, at my health club, or in the studio modeling for artists.  So I wear my thongs early and late, when tanning rays aren't an issue, or if at mid-day, with high SPF sunscreen smeared mid-body to keep tan lines at bay.

My solution for achieving the overall tan I crave?  Tan-thru sliding g-strings!  A true compromise.  They're very bold and daring -- I'm nearly naked, it feels great! -- yet sufficiently modest and decent to pass muster at my favorite beaches.  And they yield the overall tan I like for when I can be naked . . . . or nude, as the case may be.  (The difference between 'naked' and 'nude' is a whole nuther subject, and a fascinating one to consider.)

So in general, for me it's both naked and thong, as appropriate, with g-strings an in-between compromise for tanning times.  What's common in these three states of attire (or lack thereof) is a bare butt.  This makes sense for me, an artist who's keen on figurative art, and sees the glutes as a very attractive muscle group.  It's only fair if I want to admire those of others, I should be willing for my own to be seen.  But damn, at 70, wrinkles on the butt just aren't attractive.  The artists haven't complained -- yet -- and at Haulover it shouldn't matter -- the old 'body acceptance' thing.  But thongs and strings demand firm, muscular, well-sculpted buns -- they're part of the bold fashion statement.  I know I should accept the maturing process with grace, but it's tough.  I'll keep working on it, though . . . . by continuing to bare my butt!  In thongs and strings, or out.

 My wife and I swim nude in our secluded pool at home and also at clothing optional resorts.  I enjoy showing off my thongs before entering the pool at clothing optional resorts.  We are going to one in Palm Springs in January.  She has not yet selected any thongs for the trip so I am anticipating she will wear a totally see-though crocheted coverup with nothing underneath on the way from our room to the pool.  She has a firm 36 inch bust and small tight bottom, so she does not need to wear anything to look fantastic.

We tend to go to resorts which are textile only, and like to wear a thong (even if I'm the only one). I too love the tanlines. I do like a trip to a nude or c/o beach when I'm there, or find a quiet 'tolerant' spot to go nude just to show off the waxing and tanlines!

I have to admit; I love others seeing that I wear a thong or have thong tanlines and am smooth. Very few people ever comment. I think the last time was the owner of the waxing salon who asked if I sunbathed in a thong (which was fairly obvious) and complimented me on the tanlines. Just as well I was lying face-down at the time. Ha!

I much prefer a thing or very brief swimwear . I think both guys and girls look much more interesting with the shape that swimwear gives them .
Wearing a thing makes me feel great but it just wouldn't be interesting to me naked . 
Funnily enough you can walk round a locker room naked and no one would bat an eye. 
But in a thong other guys would find it weird for the most part , pity .
On a suitable beach thongs look great .

I would have said naked 10 years ago, but, having some kind of swimwear on adds an element of intrigue and sexiness.  In addition, I think tanlines add sexiness as well when seen in the locker room by others.  Finally, from a practical matter, I like in an area of the country where one must wear something on the beach, so a thong it is, once those tanlines are established, the thought of sunburn on the untanned areas is unsettling, to say the least!

 Just saw a story about sunbathing nude on a hotel balcony and brought back some good memories.  I've had the opportunity to use balconies in different cities.  When you're in a building with other buildings or other parts of your building overlooking your spot then that's the time to wear a thong out there. Some balcony ideas:1.  I've found it's best to try to get a balcony with southern exposure, you can get sun all day - especially important in winter.2. I've checked out exterior pictures of hotels and surrounding areas to try and request a room at a certain height or exposure so I'll have more privacy and more sun.  I've also used this to choose a hotel based on if this is a possibility.3.Check out the type of railing- opaque or not opaque may provide privacy may block the sun4. Check out what view you'll have from the balcony5. In some cities other people spotting nude sunbathers isn't a big deal-- think San Francisco, Miami, Barcelona.  I''ve seen them before.6. Some people I hear are very keen at picking a ship cabin with a certain balcony to allow them to tan nude.  I haven't taken a cruise but I hear this is common even on  cruises frequented by Americans, though I hear Europeans are more common.  (of course the ships position and wind conditions may differ!)  (I've heard of sunbathing girls on one ship on a private balcony that was overlooked by some public deck- they knew this and didn't care)7. The balcony may not have a lounge chair so you may have to improvise or use a regular chair and the floor.8. On some buildings which are not well lit I've had some relaxation on exposed balconies in the evening.9. Do remember if you're out there with the door closed , curtains open that housekeeping or maintenance may come in the room, but as we know that's usually not a worry!!

 I've noticed that as I walk around town, as I pass apartment buildings with balconies, or houses with decks, I always find myself thinking, "Hmm, I wonder if you could sunbathe nude there?"

Sadly, my own back porch faces north.

This is an interesting topic. I definitely would choose thong. Somehow I feel wearing something skimpy is more excited than being naked. I remember one time I was at a nude beach, nobody batted an eye if you were naked. I was in a mesh g-string, so I always found people checked me out.

Re:Naked or thong?

I love both. To me the two go hand in hand so why choose? You can wear a thong in most any public setting. When I have the opportunity to visit a place where nudity is allowed, I almost always wear a thong on my way there. I agree with others who have said they enjoy thong tan lines, but that doesn’t last long into the season for me. Even if you don’t tan nude, you lose the tan lines if you don’t wear the same style suit in the same position all the time. 

One of my favorite things about thonging is wearing many different styles. It IS fun to get a really sexy tan line during the first warm days of Spring that you can show off when you go nude. Some years, I wear something unusual on that first long tanning day: a g-string, jock, tanga, etc. I had a borderline sunburn from laying out in a tanga style suit one year when I went to a massage appointment. The masseuse could not resist spanking my red cheeks.

Nude. I'm a nudist by choice, a thong is the next best "wear as little as possible" thing. It's why I prefer g-strings and t-backs. I prefer how they look, preserving my natural lines, and of course there is less material to be concerned about. I don't like tan lines.
