If you've ever been to a nude beach, have you ever seen any behavior inappropriate for a nude beach?

Depends on what you think is appropriate for a nude beach. I guess the people who propositioned me while I was at a nude beach thought that was perfectly appropriate, but I did not.

Hell, I’ve seen inappropriate behavior at a normal beach…

And you certainly can’t unsee it… Nice tag

I frequented a nude beach in my late teens and the only inappropriate behavior that I witnessed was the fully clothed young men walking around taking pictures of the women.

do you mean…. like wandering around aimlessly with a camcorder?

The_Compassionate_Heretic's avatar

@RandomMrdan Yes that definitely counts.

I thought nude beaches had the “anything goes” policy…

RandomMrdan's avatar

I’ve never been to a nude beach before, but I could see anything pertaining to a camera or camcorder to be inappropriate.

@RandomMrdan This was 1990. Camcorders were as big as televisions then, weren’t they?

Edit:: oops, thought you were responding to my post :)

I think old men in thongs is inappropriate but that’s probably just me…

@jonsblond no, I was just replying to the question…I can how it was confused though with how I started my answer.

I have seen many people who are not appropriate for nude beaches. I have also seen very amusing incidents on nude beaches when people who don’t realise that is is for nude bathing wander innocently into the area. (I once owned a beachfront house on a beach with a nude policy. I sold it in 1978 – I wish that I hadn’t.)

I once seen a 20-something walking around with a full erection, he was told to leave.

Watching the volleyball games made me dizzy. All the naughty bits flopping this way and that way.

Too much!

happily thinking of a young blonde teen on a nude beach…oh wait, you can see my thoughts

i’ve never been to a nude beach, but i’d expect the only thing different to be that the people aren’t wearing clothing. i’d think that the same behaviours you’d exhibit at a clothed-beach would be expected – be respectful, etc.

but yeah, i definitely don’t think walking around recording people is appropriate at all.

The fat nude people being nude.
No disrespect intended.

Yeah, the plop and flop volleyball games are a good way to spoil any romantic beach thoughts.

Facade's avatar

What a bunch of prudes thinking nudity is all about titillation, sexuality, and prurience. Bodies are just bodies, and house people, and some people just prefer being without clothes—young, old, skinny and fat. Nude beaches are not about the meat scene (or the meet scene). Anyone who goes there with sex and ogling in mind is inappropriate, in my opinion. Of course, in a repressed society like the U.S. has, most people will have that in mind on a nude beach. Too bad. Grow up!

Yes I have been at a nude beach—many times during my college years. I did not see any activity at the beach itself that was inappropriate. This was at a wooded campsite (belonging to a college) and the entire thing was clothing optional by longstanding tradition. As I said, I never saw inappropriate activity in the beach area (actually, it was mostly lawn, just a tiny amount of sand). However, off in the woods and fields and such, you could find people enjoying sexual activity. The standard etiquette was to look away and ignore it and let them have their privacy (assuming that the word privacy can cover naked people enjoying each other in the outdoors).
