Proof that the world recession isn’t wholly a bad thing.
The City fathers of Key West, Florida are “considering whether or not to allow nude bathing at one of their beaches”, citing the success of the designated naturist beach at Haulover Beach Park on Miami Beach.
The clincher may be the economic situation. Commissioners point to the success of Haulover and also the increased tourist revenues of nearby Cuba, which has official nudist beaches.
The commissioners hope to put it to the ballot in October. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
According to The Tampa Tribune, nudist residents at the upscale Caliente Nudist Resort are up in arms over a new marketing strategy to attract “swingers” to the resort.
Until its recent suspension by the American Association for Nude Recreation, Caliente had an excellent reputation as a family-friendly nudist resort, and residents are concerned that the progress made trying to convince others that nudism has nothing to do with sex will be now be fatally undermined by the new direction.
We’ve long campaigned for a distinction between sex and nudism and can indentify with their point of view.
On the other hand, we’ve also campaigned long and hard for the provision of top-class facilities for nudists, and to their credit, the Caliente management have been prepared to make the enormous financial commitment to provide and maintain just such a high-standard resource. However, simple economics require that such a commitment is matched by a generous level of spending by the guests and residents, and if this isn’t forthcoming the management are faced with the choice of looking elsewhere for revenue, ( and the “swinger” element tends to be younger and more free with their cash), or closing the resort down.
There are many who believe that the nudist way of life is incompatible with a self-indulgent lifestyle, and they may have a point. But the resort companies are not charities. They will only provide great facilities if we nudists are prepared to pay for them. So we must use them or lose them. The choice is ours.
