Hi folks.

I am fairly up to scratch on nude etiquette. There is one question i have though.

In a textile setting, it would be considered rude or at least odd, to touch your genitals/groin area in anyway, even if not a sexual thing. This would include, scratching, readjusting or just generally comfortable with your hand there as opposed to elsewhere.

The questions is, does this apply in a nude setting, or is it acceptable to do any of the above due to all being visible anyway ?

In reference to innocent "adjusting" of ones genitals( which usually applies to men) you just have to follow some sort of common sense. I for one, certainly do not expect a man to "sit on his balls" or sit in an uncomfortable manner just to make sure his hand goes nowhere near that area. So if you are a man and sit down in a way where "things are not in the right place" I have no problem with a quick "adjustment" so that you are comfortable. Most nudists would not, or should not have a problem with this either. Extensive scratching and the like may be borderline appropriate depending on your surroundings and the proximity of those around you. Certainly on a jam-packed day at our club during the summer, where there is not a vacant lounge chair to be found, I would rather not look up and have anyone excessively touching their privates, wether or not it is innocent. Its more courtesy than anything else.. But in fairness a man "adjusting" is no different, than a woman laying on her stomach, "adjusting one of her boobs" that she might me laying on in an uncomfy way. The thing is, I doubt anyone would say anything to the WOMAN "shifting a boob" but they would say something to a MAN.."shifting his business". Its the same thing and sometimes you men get a bad wrap. Hope that helps. Thats my take on the question.

I think its perfectly ok to re-adjust or scratch as long as it is in moderation or not in-your-face so to speak! :)

I also feel that it should not be an event to linger on for several minutes but if done innocently it is not a problem. Numerous women do on occasion, scratch themselves briefly below the belt and it's no big deal. Woman are always picking a wedge and no one ever thinks anything of it and readjusting a bra is pretty common every day practice as well yet NOTHING is said about it in a negative manner. However, the second a guy's hand approaches a 6 inch radius of "the business" then it is lewd or inappropriate; most often.

Be safe! Be bare!

Mrs. Diger has question and thought this would be the place to get it answered.

At a nude beach she has noticed the men scratching their butt quite often and wondered why.

I know it's because it itches, but it has to be more than that. I even find myself doing it more also.

Just something that makes you go ..... Hmmmmm!

Here are my 2 cents. I have no problem with adjusting or scratching in just about any situation, just don't pick up your sandwich or iced tea immediately thereafter. There are very few things in life that 'gross me out', but that's one! :-)

OK, so now I'm up to 4 cents. About the butt business: I also have noticed the frequency with which this particular variety of scratching occurs. I have also noticed that I virtually never have the urge to do so. Could it be that since mine is shaved, there are no hairs causing an itching sensation? "Inquiring minds want to know" (I haven't used that expression in years!)

IMHO it depends on where on your butt do you scratch. To scratch a cheek is OK. It is tacky to scratch your rectum.

It seem pretty simple to me. If you have an itch take care of it and be done! Everyone from time to time gets an itch just like everyone gets the hiccups or get a cold or has a cough. Deal with issue and carry on with your life.

Is this really such a controversial topic?

Good question. Judging from the abundance of etiquette/behavior related questions, it is obvious that people are intrigued, curious or concerned about what falls within, or what constitues a breach of nudist etiquette. And these boundaries can sometimes be blurry: nudism professes freedom and body acceptance - but within a limiting scope. That can be difficult - particularily for outsiders or beginners - to wrap their heads around.

"If erections are natural, why do I have to hide it at the resort?" or "I embrace my wife in front of people all the time; why can't I do it at the resort?" are the type of questions we see time and time again, and probably get tired of answering. We all know these rules are in place to dissociate nudism from sexual activity. But being mindful of these rules and respectful of the people around you doesn't mean you have to act like a robot when socially nude (and I have seen "robotic" nudists). When I'm at the beach or resort, I act "consciously spontaneous"; in other words, I act naturally while being aware of my actions. If I have an itch, I scratch it; if I have to readjust, I move it. But I do so mindfully. And I would never begrudge the occasional "breach" of etiquette - from a woman sitting across from me and talking to me with her legs ajar, or a man scratching his butt while addressing me - or any of the plethora of situations where someone unconsciously "breached" nudist etiquette. I was much more puzzled by a conversation I once had with a lady who kept her arms crossed over her chest and her legs entwined the entirety of our conversation.

Anyway; I went on a bit of a tangent! I guess my point is to be mindful of nudist etiquette, but not allowing it to turn you into a sort of "nudist robot". Just be "consciously spontaneous".

There are quite a few threads about erections. In the general nudist community, it's respectful if you are seated, to put a towel over your lap. If you're reclining, roll over.
