Now comes the issue with nudity and children. I waited for my second post to post this next part. Children at nudist places are usually much safer than children at clothed places for reasons that Brian F of Hopkins, MN said before. To add to that, have any of you noticed that young kids often play doctor or young boys look up young girls' skirts and dresses? I know that because I used to do that myself when I was little. Anybody know why? Because they were never taught about the natural human body and how normal nudity is. If they never see nudity in its natural form, they become curious about the opposite sex. That's why they do these things. So, are parents teaching their kids right? You be the judge, but don't be surprised if you see little boys and girls playing some interesting games with each other. The point is kids and people in general need to see the human body and get used to seeing it. Otherwise, they become like most people...ashamed and very judgemental about nudity and the human body. Think about it.

I belong to a nudist camp in Canada near Puslich,Ontario and I enjoy it very much. The feeling of swimming without a bathing suit, playing sports etc in the nude is a wonderful one.
Sure people look but you have this all over including beaches where people wear bathing suits.Simply attend the largest Canadian nudist volleyball tournament at the Ponderosa sun club in ontario Canada and you will find the friendliest people of all ages simply enjoying themselves in the nude.

My sons took swimming lessons at the Hamilton Ontario YMCA and the rule in the 1960's was that the boys had to be nude in the pool. That was the rule. The parents knew that the boys were nude but nothing was ever thought of it. Everybody was required to swim nude back then

I attended swimming lessons at the hamilton ontario ymca in the 1960's and it was a rule that the boys had to participate in the nude. The swim instructors wore bathing suits. I don't know why the males were not allowed to wear suits but I believe that it was to satisfy a voyeuristic urge that many had for seeing nude young boys. The practice of course was discontinued when the YMCA became co-ed

The Solair Nudist facility is a fantastic park. Many young people as well as adults enjoy nude recreation.

To Mary: There are thousands of families who attend nudist camps not only across North America, but across the world. Children also participate in nude activities. Nothing sexual goes on and the people love it.

I was a member of the YMCA in Hamilton, Ontario and it was an exclusive all-male facility in the 1960's. It was a rule that all aquatic activities were to e conducted in the nude, including swimming lessons.

the naysayers must have had problems with their childrens' fathers or their own to have such a negative image of men(my thots only!) seems from what little I have read that victims of sexual abuse are not usually assaulted by people they do not know plus female predators surface as well. What does Mary mean by "a place like this?" I do have concerns about children forced into nudity by parents but they are not of predators. Go Ti-Cats !

I am a former member of the membership committee at Solair. My wife and I, and our two young children, were members who had a beautiful RV there.

It was a wonderful family atmosephere. In the few rare instances that outsiders ogled or acted in illicit ways (and that was VERY rare), they were promptly thrown out by our membership committee.

You'd be surprised how people act with no clothes on. It's unpretentious, friendly, and open. I miss the place.

Why are we focusing on just men? how many sexual assault cases have been in the media about women and young children. i think most of our problems with fear and hatred stem from lack of understanding. if the resort is designed for fun, then that is what it is used for. do you use a daycare? do the attendants have background checks there? they could be first time offenders there too. i'm guessing its ok to bring your child to a daycare or baby sitter so they can be raised by complete strangers, instead of being brought on a family outing for much needed family time.

I drove4 into Solair by mistake after I saw a sign that said visit and stay a lifetime. I had no Idea where I was going. I stopped ate the lake to chill from driving and when I looked around I noticed everyone was nude. I was embarrassed so I took my clothes off. Nest to me were parents and a young boy maybe 8 years old. The child was having fun and thye parents were good parents; much better that most who wear clothes. I talked to a young pretty girl and that wasn't the turn on. The feeling of being outdoors Nude with others can't be described. Trust me I thought this whole gig was perverted before I stumbled upon it. I'm going Back!

I started the same at 13. I would come home from school and go naked. One day I fell asleep on the sofa, I was already 16. Mom and sis age 14 found me that way. Sis screamed and showed mom, who was more understanding. She didn't see any thing wrong with me being naked. She did the same before and after she married dad.They gave up nudism when we began to talk. That evening sis asked if she could go nude: mom said O.K.
We were dressed when dad came home. After dinner mom and dad went to their room to talk. 10 minutes later they came out nude. Dad said that they were wishing to be able to go back to the freedom nudism gave them before we came along. They just did not know how to approach the subject, not knowing how we would react.

I have always felt fine being naked, for me it's a comfort thing. I really don't find it to be unnatural in nature. I'm sure if you go back far enough in history most people were wearing little to nothing and no one thought twice about it, but as humans evolved so did the idea of clothes. Does this make nudist primitive? No, but maybe it's a way to get back to our most primitive ways. I would love to join a nudist "camp" but don't know where any are, it's not as if they do a lot of advertising. I am in no way assumed of my "not so perfect " body, HOWEVER, I'm not sure about the kid factor. We do (unfortunately) live in a sensitive society where our children are, and should be protected, and I'm not convinced that a nudist camp is really the place for them. Let them grow up and grasp a better understanding of our world and let them make that choice for themselves at a later age. That's just my opinion and I'm not asking you to agree.
