    So how about the cases where it doesn't work out smoothly and there are different opinions about the degree of openness that is to be expected of each person?

    If you are sitting at the beach chatting with a couple of other nude friends, it is okay for me to walk up and take center stage standing in the middle of the group on the grounds that we are all nude? Or would some consider that inappropriate, and request me to sit down with the rest of you? And how are such disagreements handled in your community?

    Pst, @wearetwo it's usually better to not cause admins and moderators a lot of extra work, since they already run the site out of the goodness of their volunteers' hearts. Don't be dicks (of any gender), just fix your posts.

    to be honest we think it is all about Church control of the people. We love the Christian Church but they have an issue with control.

    But do people walk around naked in other cultures? Perhaps Amazon Indians. Why single out Christians?

    I think that you are overthinking it...it would work the same as if we were all clothed. If a person is being a jerk it doesn't matter if they have close on or not.

    Yep.

    I'm sure that factored into it. There is the element of good order within the sangha as well as around it.

    And, of course, marriage within the community to provide the next generation.

    Agreed!

    So what is considered jerk behavior in the nudist community, that specifically arises or is enabled due to nudity? I.e. that those of us who are not nudists would not spontaneously think about?

    good questions Cino, Well as you might expect my husband and I will usually have no problem posing for pictures but taking pictures is probably something that upsets nudist the most. And honestly, it happens most from people who are clothed and are rubber neckiing.

    Most guy are nervous about being a nudists because they will be embrassed if they get an erection. All nudist understand that an erection is not controlable and no one is offended by it. It happens alot where some of us are standing around drinking and talking and one of the guys starts to harden and go erect. just let it happen The side not to that is the later at night it gets the reactions could change.

    Ah, so you have your iconoclasts, who are against pictures, too ;) Just like the ancient Byzantine Church.

    So attention seeking is not more popular in nudist contexts than anywhere else?

    I would say it is about the same percentage as in regular society. I think for us the attention seeems to come on its own since we are both well endowed. My boobs are 36Gs and when he is erect his is a full 10" so there is a certain amount of "holy shit" reaction.
