The Road Less Traveled

A Case for Social Nudity — By John Figleaf

“The Road Less Traveled” has been used as titles for both songs and books. The meaning behind it is rather obvious—going places most people don’t go.  

There can be a lot of valid reasons a “road” is less traveled. I believe one of the major reasons is a certain amount of fear. In your mind’s eye think of a road trip across the border into Mexico and driving through areas controlled by the drug cartel while on your way to a resort vacation. No thanks! Or how about driving on one of those very high narrow cliff roads without guardrails and thousand foot drop offs? I’ll definitely leave that as a road to be less traveled by me!

However, many of the “roads” in life we decide not to travel on are really far less dangerous than we imagine. One of those is the road that leads to a family oriented naturist resort. For many, the journey on that road can seem as terrifying as the high cliff road and will surely end in disaster. But now imagine that dangerous narrow high cliff road was suddenly widened to four lanes and had steel and cement guardrails. Not so bad anymore ya think? And that road just might lead to some beautiful life experiences.

Now I’d like to explain why that road to the naturist resort is not dangerous at all. It simply comes down to one thing. Everyone enjoying social nudity at a naturist resort  from management to employees, residents, and guests all know and understand The Rules of the Road.

Any road can become fatally dangerous when fellow travelers do not follow the Rules. Even your local neighborhood road can become fatal when someone disregards something as basic as a stop sign. Then there is the appropriate use of turn signals, brakes, and where to look with our mirrors when our eyes are not focused straight ahead on the road. The Rules of Road is what makes driving safe so we can get to our intended destination.

Just as a person needs to pass a test to obtain a valid driver’s license, so must a person pass a background check to enter a naturist resort. Problematic individuals just are not allowed in.

Then, the rules are further explained and reviewed with every initial visit. Some forbid cameras and phones entirely or in certain areas. And those that do allow them often require colored stickers to be placed over the camera to insure the privacy of guests.

Concerned about gawkers? If anyone is overtly staring in an inappropriate manner just report it to management and they will be quickly dealt with and removed from the park if necessary. And don’t even think of unwarranted touching by strangers. Guests and management would be on them like a chicken on June bug! They would get the boot for breaking the Rules of the Road. There’s definitely a lot of “Highway Patrol Troopers” at a naturist resort making sure your journey is safe. 

Just as we drive around our local towns in our own vehicles, we quickly notice a wide variety of vehicles. Some are new, some are old, some are falling apart in various ways. Not much different in a naturist resort. The “vehicles” we live in as our bodies come in various models, some old and some newer. Some have obviously  been to the repair shop, and others are in need of repair. Nobody cares what “vehicle” you live in! They are just happy you are there. And actually (to carry the vehicle analogy a bit further) a visit to the naturist resort is like taking your vehicle to the repair shop and getting it fixed, tuned up, detailed, washed, cleaned, and waxed and looking as if you’re brand new. You’ll feel like it too!

There’s no “road rage” at a naturist resort. People are naturally friendly because they know everyone understands the rules. This allows people to be open and accepting. No one is “honking” at you, or shaking their fist at you. No one is in a hurry, and most people enjoy “pulling over” for a chat.

In conclusion, I’d highly recommend you try traveling this road at least one time. I guarantee you’ll find plenty of guardrails along the way to keep you safe and enjoying your journey. You just might find you have discovered a road that you’d love to travel much more often.

    Since my wife and I are not in close proximity to an “official” resort, we must enjoy being nude in the sanctity of our own backyard. While enjoyable, it isn’t the same as where like minded people share the experience. This also creates a bit of concern over the need to be aware of others who might by chance have view onto our property. I’ve often wanted to conduct a survey asking if others have issue of nudity in one’s own yard.

    This: “…many of the “roads” in life we decide not to travel on are really far less dangerous than we imagine.” How often we miss a blessing because we’re afraid. It has been said that everything you want is on the other side of fear. I think you’ve done a good job of exposing the fear that holds many back: fear of the unknown. The very concept of a “family oriented naturist resort” is crazy, according to what we’ve been taught, and that thinking quickly leads to our being on the wrong side of Proverbs 18:13.
