Q: Are there any rules for naturists?
- Respect other people’s peace and quiet. Don’t run or yell (except when there’s a fire)
- Respect other people’s boundaries. On a “textile” beach for example it can be normal to lay down within centimetres of someone you don’t know. On a nude beach you don’t really do that. Unless you’re invited.
- No public intimacies. Neither undesired nor desired.
- No nudity outside of the site. If a tennis ball flies over the fence, put on some pants!
- No photographs without permission. Nobody wants to end up in all their glory on your Instagram. On many sites also smart phones and tablets are forbidden for this reason. You have no idea how liberating that is…
- Respect the site. if you carried it in, you must carry it back out.

Q: How do I get used to being naked?
Q: Am I beautiful enough to go naked?
Q: What is indecent behavior?
Unfortunately there’s no comprehensive answer to this question and there is a bit of a gray zone. The best tip we can give you if you’re new to a place is to hold back for a while and observe what the others do. Don’t try to see how far you can go or you’ll most likely get kicked out at some point.
Here’s an overview of what’s commonly understood by indecent behaviour:
- Suggestive language: Don’t talk dirty to people and don’t try to turn conversations into something sexual. Don’t make any remarks (positive or negative) about other people’s genitals. You can call your partner “baby” or “stud”, but don’t call others that, except when you know them well enough to know that they won’t take offence.
- Suggestive dancing: This is a difficult one, because dancing often requires a certain amount of moving and touching. When you’re dancing with a partner, don’t touch any genitals and don’t push yours against the other. And don’t get too close. When you’re dancing on your own, watch your moves. The Brazilian Funky dance may not be the right dance for a nudist place.
- Suggestive poses: All nudists have been in some kind of “compromising” pose a million times. If something fell, you have to bend over, and from time to time you find yourself on your knees with your butt in the air trying to recover that fallen euro. Nothing wrong with that. But don’t make these poses in order to attract attention, and believe us, people do see the difference. For women this mostly means that you try to limit the angle between your legs and for men this often comes down to hide your erection.
- Suggestive accessories: This one is really dependent from one place to another. Some places will restrict the usage of piercings because they are considered suggestive, something for swingers. A quite old fashion idea if you ask us, but we don’t make the rules. Also tattoos with explicit nudity are often forbidden and also, on a c/o place, sexy lingerie is something not done.
- Suggestive touching: For singles, don’t play with yourself. Period. For couples it’s a bit more difficult. Holding hands or other signs of affection, even a quick smack on the ass are no problem. Intensive cuddling might be a bit more of an issue. Most of the time, if someone yells “Get a room!”, you’re going too far. But sometimes touching is necessary, if your girlfriend asked you to wipe sun cream into her body, you will have to touch her breasts and behind or she’ll get a terrible burn. Those things are accepted as long as you don’t turn it into an hour long massage.
Q: Do I have to undress in front of of everybody?
A golden tip: If you’re not sure whether you’ll be able to undress privately, put on something comfortable while you’re still in the car, a beach dress for example which you can easily slip off when you arrived on site.
Also, the concerns about getting naked in company often disappear with experience.
