By Tara Imperatore May. Although he is not an expert in motivation for participating in nudism specifically, he does know a thing or two about the way people behave and learn. Nudity is mandatory everywhere on property at a nudist resort. An intense doubles tennis match naked; a couple enjoying a romantic candlelight dinner naked; a playful belly flop into the pool naked; sunbathers catching some rays in lounge chairs naked.
And no need to bring a swimsuit since those are banned too. Desert Sun Resort has found that this works well for first timers to feel comfortable. There is nothing worse than being at a clothing optional resort and you are the only one nude in the pool.
People may come to the club fully dressed, but may not leave the club completely dressed. Speaking of the staff's preferences, do they also participate in the nudist lifestyle? Maybe on their own time, but not while on the job. Our three resort reps all report that they do not work in the nude. Deb Bowen says, "Our employees, be them nudists or non-nudists, do not work naked. We have the same liquor laws and health department regulations as any other resort or club and have to adhere to the same guidelines.

Because of its vacation destination locale in Palm Springs, the common age range of guests at Desert Sun is In some research done by Professor Aldag on participation in nudism, he is also able to confirm an excessive number of people in their 30s and 40s in the nudist population.
And while 38 is the average age at Hidden Beach in the Riviera Maya, Alejandro informs that they are starting to see a trend in even younger clientele as of late. They are looking to spice up their relationship. Plain and simple, something exciting, daring, different, unique, or something no one would ever believe. Nudist resorts are a great place for singles to come and meet other singles.

While this might not be entirely untrue, most nudist resorts are geared toward romance and couples. At Desert Sun, they attempt to keep the gender ratio even by making a limited number of rooms available for singles, as well as not allowing them to obtain memberships or day passes unless they are a part of a couple.
First-timers tend to feel extremely awkward walking around without clothing in front of a bunch of strangers. People sitting in the Jacuzzi until their whole body feels like one big wrinkly prune, too shy to exit and walk around freely.
Some women wear sarongs and others stand or sit in awkward positions to cover up their flaws. Not the case, the insiders claim. Many guests find lifelong friends at nudist resorts.
