Nudist resorts to start a public relations campaign to market to Gen X
AANR, the American Association of Nude Recreation is launching a public relations campaign to encourage more Gen X guests. They came up with ideas for resorts and clubs to have High Speed internet access, premium coffees, and blogs.
I thought this very interesting. As guests of our resort, the Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in Palm Springs, CA know, we have the highest occupancy rate of ALL nudist resorts in America. We have served complementary Starbucks and Godiva coffee to our guests since we opened 12 years ago. We had data ports for laptops when they were popular, and now have free wifi for all guests with repeater stations so laptops can be used at the pool or in room. Of course we have a blog since you are reading this.
You can't just put up something like wifi and expect Gen X'ers to immediately come. It is a competitive market place. People have choices to go to other resorts besides nudist resorts. Most people even at our resort do not consider themselves nudists. They like going nude, but heaven forbid calling them a nudist. That brings up thoughts of "nudist colonies."
There is so much other nude resorts need to do to catch up to appealing to Gen X'ers and others. First stop charging membership fees. This is the biggest turn off and one of the biggest complaints about other places that I hear. Of course we don't charge membership fees.
The other thing is you have to make yourselves friendly to first timers. So many nudist places have manditory immediate nudity rules. Woman do not like that. They will disrobe when they feel comfortable. I can guarantee you, if you force women to go nude right away, you turn them off. We are called the most mainstream nudist resort in America and perfect for first timers because we do bend over backwards to make women feel comfortable here.
I feel very good though to see that nudist organizations and resorts are starting to give some thought on how to market to new customers. Anything positive they can do to show people the fun of going nude, will be great for nude recreation.

Nudist association targets Gen Xers in new initiative
Randi Schmelzer PR Week USA Nov 21 2006
KISSIMMEE, FL: The American Association of Nude Recreation (AANR) has launched a campaign to encourage a new generation to visit nude and clothing-optional resorts.
...nude recreation has experienced tremendous growth within the past decade and is today a $400 million niche within the US travel industry. But "we have to look to the future," said Marie Kephart, senior account manager at AANR's Orlando, FL-based AOR, Yesawich, Pepperdine, Brown & Russell PR.
Outreach efforts began with resort-owner seminars covering amenities that Gen X vacationers might want in a club. Topics ranged from high-speed Internet connections to premium coffees, Kephart said. Another seminar focused on how already-established Gen X nudists could serve as brand ambassadors and help club owners communicate new ideas and directions.
With help from in-house project lead Steve Vickers - himself a Gen X nudist - AANR has been inviting 18- to 35-year-olds to spend a day at resorts, which range in ambience from campground-rustic to luxury spa.
Phase two of the effort includes more aggressive outreach in the social media space, noted Kephart. AANR already has an active MySpace page and is set to launch a Gen X-angled "first-timers" blog and a series of podcasts shortly after the new year.
AANR is also reaching out to Gen X-targeted health, travel, and entertainment magazines, Kephart said, positioning its resorts as both "stress-free getaways" and excellent values.

One of the biggest threats to nudism (besides swinger resorts misrepresenting themselves as legitimate nude resorts) is misguided politicians. We all saw how Mark Foley, the the Republican Congressman from Florida wanted a major investigation of nudist resorts in Florida because they all cater to families with kids and some ran summer camps for kids. Of course this fall it came out that Foley really was interested in male pages in Congress and was just projecting his own perversions for children onto nudist resorts.
This was a good move for The American Association for Nude Recreation donating money to a candidate. The Congressional candidate said when questioned "they're not hurting anyone."
Here at the Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, CA we have been involved with local politics for years. I served on the board of directors of The Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce for 6 years (maximum allowed) and then was elected to be the President of the Chamber. I am the only owner of a nudist resort anywhere to be a President of a major Chamber of Commerce (1000 members). I also was the campaign treasurer for one of our city council people for 1 term. And I also served on the city of Palm Springs Finance task force for 2 years. As a result of being involved with politics, we are considered the most respected nudist resort in Palm Springs. We are the only nudist resort recomended at our city site http://palmsprings.com I know personally know our Congresswoman Mary Bono, State Rep Bonnie Garcia and State Senator Jim Battin.
If you want to be involved in the nudist industry, you need to play the political game if you really want to succeed.

Vacationers have many choices of where to travel. In a recent survey, Canadians are rediscovering the United States like never before.
Saturday, November 18, 2006
One of the harder parts of owning a nudist resort is constantly having to tell potential guests and the media that we are not a sex operation. We are just like a nice regular boutique resort, it is just that our guests get a better and all over suntan.
Unfortunately, anyone can call themselves a nudist or create a nudist site. And many slimy businesses do nude recreation a great disservice.
In this article a site sells illegal kiddie porn while trying to operate under the guise of being a legitimate nudist site. The reporter here writes "...appears to sell nudist and naturist videos - seemingly tame pornography..." This makes me so mad because you know that the reporter thinks that nudist and naturist videos are porn. And the people with this illegal site reinforce this notion. Obviously he has never been to a nudist resort or a nude beach, because then he would have reported this story differently.
The sad thing is you search for the words nudists, naturists, nude beaches, etc. and you come up with many porn sites. And phony nudist sites which are pay sites. Google does a decent job of separating porn from actual nudism and naturism sites, but many other search engines do not. This gives the wrong impression to newbies and the media as to the real nature of nudism.
Another sad thing is there are swinger resorts that pretend to be legitimate nudist resorts.
Now I know that some swingers do go to nudist resorts. That happens at all resorts, but it is a small percent and they behave themselves as they know nude resorts are not pick up places. However, when you get swinger hotels that pretend they are luxury nudist resorts, and they run misleading advertising and websites, that hurts all real nudist resorts. Every week we will get phone calls from people (and visits) that were deceived into thinking they were going to a nice nudist hotel only to find out it was a ranchy swing club where people are having sex outdoors poolside. I wonder how many first timers have been deceived into going to a swinger place thinking it was a nice nudist resort, and then never try nude recreation again? From my experience, it is probably a lot. My dream would be for all swing operations to be honest and not deceive people. I know they are desperate for money and obviously don't care about people, so it will never happen.
Now if you want a nice relaxing, fun vacation, give us, The Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa located in sunny Palm Springs, CA a call at 800-786-6938. And visit our site at http://sunnyfun.com You will have your best vacation ever.
"Web site a cover for illegal porn purchases
By Kyle Peveto of The Daily Sentinel in Nacogdoches, TX
Friday, November 17, 2006
Allegations of child pornography possession against a Nacogdoches County sheriff's office lieutenant are part of a large-scale investigation of thousands of visitors to a Web site that allegedly charged users for images and videos of illegal pornography.
Michael Kennedy, 31, resigned Tuesday from his position as county jail lieutenant... He was the youngest lieutenant in sheriff's office history, and he worked with the office's Explorer post — a subsidiary of Boy Scouts of America that teaches teen boys and girls law enforcement techniques...
Kennedy became the focus of a state attorney general's office investigation in June, when a U.S. House of Representatives committee began focusing on a Web site, neova.net. The neova.net site's front page appears to sell nudist and naturist videos — seemingly tame pornography, but according to the FBI and several newspaper articles, the site was actually a portal to illegal pornography.
The investigation of neova.net began in July 2005, according to The Roanoke (Va.) Times, when 19-year-old Justin Berry confessed to making pornographic Web sites of himself from the time he was 13. Users could buy memberships to Berry's sites, and to accept payment, he set up an account through PayPal, a service that processes online credit card purchases. In 2003, PayPal terminated its relationship with Berry after the company learned he was selling pornographic images and videos.
To continue accepting payments, Berry arranged for neova.net to process credit card purchases. Neova.net processed payments for several pornographic sites, according to the FBI. When Berry became the focus of an investigation by the New York Times, Berry turned over to the FBI credit card records of thousands of men who purchased images and videos of himself.
In June 2006, the owner of neova.net, Aaron Brown, was indicted in Virginia for processing credit card payments for child porn sites, and according to an indictment filed by an officer in the Texas attorney general's office, the U.S. House of Representatives then began investigating individuals who used their credit cards on the site..."

Red, White and Blue nude beach is one of the nicest nude beaches around. What made it so special was that it was private. You did not get the voyeurs and and people trying to take your picture to but on their own "perverts are us" nude beach websites at that beach. Because there can be such a bad element on nude beaches, my wife and I stopped going to them about 25 years ago. But as I said Red, White and Blue was different.
What I thought was interesting in this article was the beach was owned by nonnudists. Now a days Paradise Lakes, Eden Bay, Caliente are all owned by nonnudists. They are run by developers just like you would find at any other housing development. But for a nonnudist to start a nude beach in 1965 and never convert, that was a pretty interesting statement.
Another statement was how only about 6% of their business was from locals. I have found that to be very true. In our case many times we have more people here from Canada and England then we do from California. We will also have more people from the Bay area than southern California. But I find this is for a different reasons. Because we are the only nudist vacation resort in Southern California, vacationers always contact us first. Nudists like to talk with other people, so they only go to places like us that are busy everyday of the week. That is why so many guests book 1 week or longer with us. If we are full and guests can't change their vacation dates, then they book weekends at other places and go to San Diego or Las Vegas for the rest of their vacations. Southern Californians normally wait until the last minute to book, so the rooms are already booked by the out of state or out of country guests. Although we are finding more and more Southern Californians booking vacations with us as they are tired of paying high prices when they go to nude place in Florida and the Caribbean.
It will be interesting to see what happens to the beach as it is great land.
And if you are looking for a great vacation, give us, The Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional resort and Spa located in sunny Palm Springs, CA a call at 800-786-6938 or visit our site at http://sunnyfun.com You will be glad that you did.
Red, White and Blue Beach owner throws in the towel
By Soraya Gutierrez
Santa Cruz Sentinel staff writer
SANTA CRUZ — It's a tough job overseeing a nude beach, and after 41 years, the owner of Red, White and Blue Beach says it's time to throw in the towel and sell his property.
Ralph Edwards, 83, and his wife Kathleen raised their five children in the white two-story house that sits on 170 acres above the beach off Highway 1, six miles north of Santa Cruz.
The clothing-optional beach has been host to visitors from all over the world who come to bronze in the sun, camp overnight and fire up a barbecue pit.
"You can go any way you want, it's clothing-optional," Edwards said while walking his dog, Spike, on the deserted beach.
But Edwards, who says he isn't a nudist, is ready to go his own way.
"It's too much work for me," he said, a pair of tinted glasses and a "Nude Expert Quality Control" baseball cap blocking the sun.
He purchased the land from the Scaroni family in 1965 without a plan but with a bunch of ideas, from building condominiums to opening a mobile home park. He teased about running a nudist operation.
He even threw around a few unofficial names, like Skinnydipper's Paradise, that he can't help but laugh about as he remembers them today.
It turns out a nude beach was the only plan taken seriously by the county.
"I couldn't get permits for anything else," he said.
He said his wife, who is living with Alzheimer's disease in a care facility in the city of Santa Cruz, at first didn't care much for the idea of a nude beach. But it grew into a family business that has attracted 60,000 people a year, mostly tourists from San Jose and the San Francisco Bay Area.
"Nude people don't want to be close to home doing that scene," he said, noting locals account for roughly 6 percent of his customers.
Some members of his family don't like to hang out at the beach, either.
"Some of them don't like to be associated with something like this," he said. "That's their prerogative."
But the pristine beach gets plenty of attention through nudist publications and the Internet. It's on the Travel Channel's top 10 list of best nude beaches in the world — the only such beach in California to be revealed.
Santa Cruz resident Toby Gray, a frequent visitor to the Red, White and Blue, said he and his wife have been enjoying the beach for many years. They've always gone back because of the family-friendly atmosphere, he said, and to hear bands play around the campfire.
"The whole campground would fill up," he said.
A few hard-core nudists would bare it all, he said, but most people in the camping areas wore a wrap or sarong. Down on the beach, most people laying out don't cover up.
"It's always been very safe and friendly there," he said.
The private setting is a big reason people feel comfortable at the beach, Edwards said.
"I was real lucky to have something like this," he said.
While refusing to name a price for the property, saying he prefers to sell it privately, he said the next property owner can live the life of a movie star, and make it their own private estate, as he has since 1965.
"Except I got these naked people coming into my backyard," he said. "Yes, it's funny when you think about it."

Helen Mirren who is currently starring in the movie the Queen where she may be nominated for an Academy Award, says going to nude beaches "is a very nice experience." It is interesting how she says she is not a nudist, yet likes nude beaches. She says she could not go to a nudist camp and eat in the nude and that is what makes here "not" a nudist.
Well I think Helen would be very surprised is she went to nudist resorts in the US, France, and Spain because at many of these resorts, nudity is not mandatory at mealtime. Certainly at the Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa located in sunny Palm Springs, CA, you do not have to be nude to eat. Most of our guests don't even consider themselves nudists. They just stay at our resort because it "is a very nice experience." Our guests are just like Helen, very normal people who just love to take off their clothes and nude sunbathe.
So Helen, if you are looking for your first visit ever to a nudist resort so you can have "a very nice experience." Give us a call at 800-786-6938 or visit our site at http://sunnyfun.com You will be glad that you did!
"British actress does what comes naturally
November 10, 2006 Chicago Sun Times by Doug Elfman
Is Helen Mirren, [who starred in Calender Girls and The Queen] the great actress and English dame, a nudist or not? On "Late Night With Conan O'Brien," the host teased her about being a "nudist," but she uses the word "naturalist."
"I'm not an official nudist," she says to me.
How does someone even become an "official" nudist?
"Well, you go to nudist camp and you have lunch in the nude. That, I can't do. I can't sit down to dinner in the nude. I can't even do that at home on my own. I have to put something on. But lying on a beach with a lot of other people who haven't got their clothes on is a very nice experience.
"You Americans are so prudish. I went to Hungary when communism was still active [there]. There's a park in the middle of Budapest, and they had a little section for nudist sunbathing right in the middle of the city. And you could walk past it. It wasn't like it was hidden behind greenery or fences. You could see everybody naked just by taking a walk in the park. It's very common in Europe, and Americans can't seem to get their heads around it.
"In America, you put swimming costumes on, don't you?" she says, then adds this judgment as if pitying us sadly: "Hmmm."

As she says "Honestly is nudity onscreen that big a deal?" To her it is no big deal. Yet, reading the story below, the writer says "shocking scenes feature full frontal nudity." I think the writer needs to grow up. The nude human body by itself is not shocking. Visit nudist resorts and you see all ages and all sizes of people. And you will notice that everyone is having fun and enjoying themselves. You will also notice how relaxed people are when they are at nudist resorts.
The movie that Nicole Kidman is in portrays the life of a photographer who shoots regular people in the nude. Yes, artists have always painted humans in the nude. And regular people can be photographed nude. Playboy models are not the only women who are photographed.
Nicole Kidman should be congratulated for not censoring the movie.

Nicole Kidman Nude in Film: 'No Big Deal'
By Cathy Beers From nationalledger.com
Nov 1, 2006
Nicole Kidman appears in her latest project 'Fur' nude according to early reports of the film. And the fabulously striking Australian actress - who has appeared topless and nude in other films - says that nudity on film is 'no big deal.'
Nicole Kidman Nude in Film: 'No Big Deal'
That's likely a good thing as the film has both male and female full frontal nudity.
An earlier report by Lynda Johnson details that the film which is an imagined story about the life of legendary photographer Diane Arbus.
But the shocking scenes feature full frontal, both male and female as Kidman, who plays Arbus snaps away at the models.
According to Roger Friedman of Fox news - the actors in the film that go nude are 'regular people' short tall, fat and skinny so if you are expecting a Playboy peep show it sounds as if the film-goer will come away disappointed.
The Sun UK quotes Nic, “Honestly is nudity onscreen that big a deal? I think you say you're going to do something for a film because you believe in it artistically and you don't censor yourself emotionally."
“If the love scenes and the nudity is a necessity for the piece and it’s not exploitive then it doesn’t weigh that heavily on me.”

Year round, probably 15% of our guests are from Canada. In the fall, winter, and springtime, it is an even higher percentage.
We have been featured in the Globe and Mail, Edmenton Journal, Calgary Herald, and Vancouver Sun newspapers. The Vancouver Sun newspaper even called us the best naturist resort in America. We have been featured in an Air Canada in Flight Magazine and we have been on Canada's Travel Channel. Our very first press write up way back in early 1995 was in the Sun Times of Canada newspaper. It is no wonder that we are the most popular place for Canadian nudists to vacation at in the US.
We have always found that Canadians seem to have a better handle on nudity. Maybe it is because they have to wear so many clothes in the winter, they can't wait to get nude.
Here is a story from the Globe and Mail. Could you imagine American politician's posing nude for a charity calendar?
Here's a big cheer for "O Canada," our friendly nude neighbors to the north.
And if you are like the Canadians and are looking for your best vacation ever, visit us, The Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa located in sunny Palm Springs, CA. Our site is http://sunnyfun.com or call us at 800-786-6938

Nudity is breaking out all over. Liberal leadership candidate Bob Rae went skinny-dipping in a skit on The Rick Mercer Show. Fellow candidate Scott Brison posed in the nude for a charity-related Nova Scotian calendar, to be issued next week. And a Canadian judge may have been among the many clients on a nude cruise run by an outfit called Bare Necessities, though whether one should give much weight to a cruise line co-owner who rattles off her client list from memory -- "actors, bus drivers, Fortune 500 CEOs, soccer moms, doctors, teachers, priests and at least one Canadian Supreme Court justice" -- is an open question. "At least" one?
