First of all, staring is a no-no. And typically, only applies for the first few minutes you’re in a group with other nudists. Shortly after disrobing and joining the crowd, most people don’t even really notice that everyone around them is naked. Sure, you may see it a bit here and there, but it becomes as natural as if you were all wearing swimsuits. However, there may still be the occasion where you find someone particularly attractive, or perhaps you notice something unusual about their body or whatever. Just like when you’re wearing clothes, staring is still considered rude. Take a glance and then move on. And when it comes to eye contact, remember where everyone’s eyes are. They’re not chest level or groin level. Whether it’s the tiniest or the biggest body parts you’ve ever seen, they’re still attached to a person with eyes. People come in all sizes and shapes. Taking away the clothes doesn’t change that fact. It’s still rude to comment on other people’s bodies. So please keep those comments to yourself.
While it may be entirely acceptable to briefly hug, kiss, or hold hands with your significant other. Don’t let it get as far as a “MAKEOUT” session. “PUBLIC DISPLAYS of AFFECTION” are not acceptable. Nudist or naturist activities are not about SEX. If you’re expecting an orgy, you will be very disappointed. No laws ban nudity in public in Oregon. Sex is not allowed in public areas. Let’s talk about erections. Yes, erections. We all know that erections may be a very natural bodily function that can happen at inopportune times. That particular body function needs to be covered! Because you have seen some so-called nudist websites with some guy parading around with a boner, this behavior is not acceptable. Again, if you wouldn’t do it wearing clothes, don’t do it when you’re nude. If you do decide that you’d like to capture a few memories, be sure only to take pictures of the wildlife, nature scenes, or people you know that are okay with you taking their picture. Be sure to ask permission before taking photographs of anyone and respect their wishes if they don’t want you to.
