My parents met at a nudist camp, I spent most of my childhood running around it in the summers. Happy memories.

My father still champions the nudist lifestyle, but I'm not an active nudist anymore. I fully support nudism and seek to correct people's misunderstandings about it, but it's not really a big deal to me.

I do want to go to a clothing optional beach one day, but something occurs to me; how do you apply sunscreen? do you apply to your privates once you're in or do you do it before you strip?

For a bit of contrast, this long-tine nudist troper has experienced nothing but closed-minded prudishness from all nudist groups, to the point of criminalizing natural erections, purely to avoid stigmatization.

In trying to combat the stereotype that all nudists are sex-crazed swinger hippies, I feel this page goes too far to the opposite extreme. As a non-nudist who was persuaded to attend a small Christian Naturist gathering by a female friend (who I had not previously known was a nudist) I can attest that nudity is not "completely desexualized" at nudist events, at least not at the event I went to. Leering stares were very common and all eyes were focused on everyone's naughty bits. In fact it seemed I was the only person not staring at everyone's junk if only because I was trying very hard to avoid staring because I didn't want to offend anyone. The events were commonly used as "hook-up" spots as well, contrary to the nudist claim that the events have no sexual context. No sex actually went on at the nudist event, but I was invited to "swing" events by several different people at the nudist event. I asked some of the non-swinger nudists if that sort of request is a common occurrence and they said yes. It's not something they approve of but it is something they just have to tolerate as a consequence of the nudist lifestyle.

But I digress. My point is not that nudists are lying about not being sexual deviants. I admit that most are not. My point is that I feel this tv tropes article somewhat obscures the truth and comes off like a pro-nudist newsletter.

You're right. Despite most people at the camps being normal, there are certainly screwballs.

It seems that this is an important detail to add. Should a section be added?

How well does it match the trope?
