Wasn't sure where to post this. I have been to natural CO areas like hot springs and beaches for decades. When we had a hot tub, all the guests would be nude. We now live a couple miles from Haulover and go at least once a month.
Except for Harbin Springs, and Wilbur Springs in Ca., we have never been to a resort setting. At Harbin you are normally nude only around the pool areas. At Harbin, nudity is accepted all over.
Neither has structured social activities.

Sunsport Gardens is less than 1.5 hours from us. Like other nudist resorts their web site (and comments here) say they have lots of social activities. Among those are live music and dancing.
I may be naive, but how does one handle dancing? Are the people at dances clothed? Even in "regular" dance venues it is not unusual for one or both parties to get aroused. If the dance partners are nude, I can't see how this wouldn't happen w. some frequency.
What is the real scoop and what is accepted and not accepted?

Remember, a lot of music is overtly suggestive.

Well, we certainly don't get dressed because of a dance. Geez.

I've been to a dance at Sunsport. Many if not most were wearing clothes. The way one member explained it to me was that was the only time they get to dress up.

Most resort I visit it seem like the males would be nude except for maybe a hat but the women would be nude or wearing frilly garments to atract a little attention to themselves. to each there own, dances at clubs are usually more than PG rated anyways.

We are far from prudes. Since we never have been at such a structured setting, nude or otherwise, we just wanted to have an idea of what to expect and what is acceptable. From the descriptions above I guess we'd be safe in assuming it's somewhere between a hard "R" (pun intended) or a soft "X". IOW, there would be overt signs of arousal, but could assume no overt "x" rated activity.
Can we assume there is no unwanted "attention" by others?

Not a problem for me; my last dance partner was on the opposite side of the room doing her own dancing, without any synchronization with my movements. My being aroused had the odds of 200:1.

I was at Harbin last November, for the first time. Quite a drive from Calistoga to Harbin. It is sure is on a steep hillside.

Club cultures vary widely. In particular, dances differ greatly from club to club.

I know nothing about that particular club. In my rather extensive experience at other clubs, however, your assumption is probably way off base.

Visible arousal is rare, and usually quite brief. It's also no big deal. Accidents occasionally occur. So?

... but could assume no overt "x" rated activity.

If you mean sexual activity, that's also rare and almost always results in ejection.

quote:

A dance is a social affair. People hug their friends, talk to each other, dance with each other, and do all the stuff you'd see at a non-nudist dance. Since you'll be new, you should expect others to want to get to know you. If you don't want to dance with others, decline politely. If you don't want to talk to others, make that clear and you'll be left alone.

Dances are clothing-optional. If you're more comfortable in clothes, wear clothes. If you can't handle your own nudity, others' nudity, or the incidental body contact that goes with dancing, wear clothes.

But, be aware that most experienced nudists _can_ handle their own nudity, others' nudity, and a lot more body contact than is involved in standard ballroom dancing. If you're going to read things into that (or into see-through dresses, flirting, and general horsing around), things that almost certainly aren't there, my advice would be to stay away.

Leave your prejudices at home, ignore the prejudices of others, go with an open mind, and don't jump to conclusions. It may be quite different from what you're used to, which does NOT make it 'wrong.'

I wish you a wonderful time!

Funny you should mention this. Way back about 20 years ago when I went to my first nude resort we had a resort owner, older gal, who specifically forbid nudity at the clubs dances. She must have had her reasons however I never knew exactly what they were. After she sold the club it was one of the first things that they changed. I think that most nude clubs that have dances are aware that the act of dancing can cause arousal and as long as you are not waving it around like you just don't care it is not an issue.

One thing I will mention here is that almost all clubs have some weird little rule that newcomers are not aware of. These things vary from place to place so one of my questions when taking a tour or taking to the regulars is okay what are some of the unusual rules here. Like another place I went to touted it's nude hiking trails however if you went up one certain trail you had to bring shorts because you were briefly visible to an adjacent property owner.

This is a funny topic. I remember my first high school prom ... I was a junior and it was also the first dance of any kind I went to. I guess the guys didn't realize how obvious the "gun in their pocket" was to us, which was cause for a lot of giggling in the ladies room.

If we'd all been nude, what would we have had to joke about??? ... LOL

You caught me, Bob, in a slight bit of hyperbole. Hahaha.

I was alluding to how much more separated dance partners are in many kinds of popular dances. The old ballroom dancing I have found to be very close, and I could see where the dancers being in the nude might bother some onlookers. However, so much of the newer dancing leaves a fair amount of physical separation. Come to think of it, dancing apart from each other gives each dance partner a visual aspect that is not possible with doing a waltz, or something similar. I.e., if my partner is doing her thing a few feet away from me, I can get a better picture of her. Okay, now, I lost myself in my words.

That's a blanket statement which is not true for all clubs. I've known of some clubs that do not allow nude dancing, even when the club itself is nudity required, weather permitting. I think that it's a carryover from the old days when most dances were slow and close, and nudists had to go to great lengths to prove that it wasn't a sex orgy.
At my club, you see just about everything at the dances, full nudity (even in the middle of winter) sexy clothing, and ordinary street clothing.

I wasn't aware that any clubs are left that prohibit dancing nude. When Cypress Cove finally gave in, I thought that was the end of it.

However, I'm quite sure that no clubs require nudity at dances, even the so-called nudity-required clubs. That was what I was trying to tell the concerned gentleman. He and his lady are free to wear clothes.

Believe it or not, it's not THAT much of a problem. True, erections have a lot to do with "stimulation" like something brushing against "it," but they are also a mental thing. If you're over say, 21 years old, you can usually control it. If not, and you start to get that "halfway" feeling -- the one that goes, "I know the damn thing is about to go up and I can't stop it!" -- you simply suggest it's time to leave the floor and sit down for a while. Ladies understand these things.

Oh Geez....

My wife and I go to Club Orient every summer. They have DJ and live music most nights and there is dancing.

Try and wear something other that a pareo and you'll sweat to death! Most everyone in the restaurant and dancing is nude and I have yet to see an erection.

If one did sprout...I'm sure the guy would just go slip on his pareo til it subsided.

We haven't gone to a dance at our club yet but I can only imagine it's the same and no different at any other club....unless...the atmosphere was sexually charged.

Be a gentlemen and keep it to yourself or between you and your partner!
