There appears to be only a handful of genuine nudists here.  The majority are either inactive, fakes, or those with ulterior motives.  Given all of this, is it really worth for anyone to pay for a membership?

Your perspective is correct at virtually all internet dating sites and is Amplified even more on nudist or swinger sites. And, there is a bigger problem with the nudist in swinger sites than there is with General social dating sites; that is that there are many more predatory gay men and virtually zero real women and when there are real women this group of predators immediately treats them rudely so they leave. I have seen this on dozens of sites but have seen it extensively on nudist and swinger sites. Seems there's really nothing you can do about this except start your own site and have a real vetting process and require the posting verifiable photos Etc

Nope. I was suckered. Had lots of messages and interest from attractive women before I paid and since I paid....nothing.

They target new members just to get them to pay.

Well, I'm not paying now or have I ever.

I'd have no problem with a membership but only at half the current rate. The web sites charge an unreasonable fee to be a member and this site has very few members compared to other websites.

I feel that the sponsors would have a greater success should they lower their monthly fees and concentrated on platonic friendships and people who are real nudists.

The nudist "family" does not encourage open sex nor any display of sexual affection. It's a "no no" and furthermore makes true nudists very uncomfortable.

The sponsors here do nothing to encourage members interacting nor encouraging members to practice public nudity.

I have been a practicing nudist for over 30 years and kept true to these ideals. Sure I have admired a beautiful set of breasts on many occasions. But being polite, I always mention to the husband first that "your wife has beautiful breasts"> It's not that I as a man can ignore them when they are thrust in front of me. LOL However, the ladies tend to be more shy and reserved about their bodies and only when they have mentally overcome their imperfections and comfortable in their own skin are they going to be comfortable in public nudity.

 

Here are a few "rules" that will enhance your enjoyment of public nudity 1) Do not gawlke  2) Do not take photos without asking first  3) Do not infer any references to any kind of sexual encounter  4) Allow adequate space when setting up your area for sunning  5) When approaching a nudist, politely "excuse me" then begin to speak. If these suggestions are followed ALL of us will certainly enjoy our trips to the beaches and camps and nudists resorts.

Have safe fun everyone!

May I ask what other site you made connections with?  This site is all fake I found and you are fools showing off your naked bodies to just other men.  I don't believe there are any live women on this site.  This site is definitely a waste of money and scam.

It is my belief that this site is set up to pull in revenue and runs in a similar fashion to many of the dating sites on the web. You find that one or two ladies correspond with you but once you pay then the ladies no longer react to messages. There seem to be very few genuine naturists with just a sprinkling of oversexed men to make up the numbers. Maybe something will happen to revise my opinion in the next 3 months of my subscription but I don't see me renewing 3 months hence. Time will tell.

I will not be renewing my membership when it expires.  I agree with many of the other comments here.

 

Too many posts seem to be abandoned or just inactive.  Should be easy for site manager to filter out searches by adding options for when last logged in, i.e. within week, month, 3 months, year and so on.  I bet if you choose last logged on in last month about 80% of the profiles would disappear.  

 

People should at least fill out their profile and have a pic, or not get posted.  Will fill out later is wasting my time.  

 

I joined another site for less then half the price, and within 2 weeks I have made several connections with real fellow nudists in my area.

Before I paid I had a few messages saying members were interested in me/sent emails etc but I could not read their messages or see who that member is unless I paid membership.  Since I paid over 2 months ago those members ignored my emails and I have not had any chats with any females except a couple of brief one sentence messages.

O.K.  after receiving several emails, the general consensus here is that this site is for men to pay a membership fee in the hopes of having a woman (women) respond to their winks / emails.  Sadly the vast majority of men claim that they never receive a response and / or are totally ignored. They feell that their membership fee is a total waste of money. Furthermore virtually all women (or those who claim to be women) NEVER pay a membership fee.  If seems that this site is heavily biased against men.  The general consensus is that this site MUST change by recruiting new individuals who are not here to scam / play games and that the only way to accomplish this would be to allow free use of the chat room  so that all members would be better able to judge what this site is all about before commiting to a paid membership.  Sounds fair?

For me, I think its the site owners fault. The site is expensive for what it offers, with a business/ charging model from the 90s. I'd love to see what percentage of people keep their subscription up, and how much the wite ownrs rely on people paying once.

 

I believe the site would do better by both its users and its owners if it used a more standard contemporary 'fremium' business model. Get enough people on, and that means letting them use basic features including opening a conversation and then charge for premium functionalty from a wider user base.

 

To another point, think you should have the ability not just to search by gender, but maybe state if you are open to connection from men, women or both.

 

Also, I don't specifically see this as a dating site - it does seem like there are some people genuinely trying to find nude friends to go to the beach or explore with. Having been going to nude beaches for years, I can say they can be surprisngly unfriendly in terms or striking up conversations, so its good to have a place where people can chat first.

So, I tried a paid membership for 1 month. In the entire time, not a single person within about 400 miles ever even logged into the site if the last activity date is correct. 

 

It looks like a cool place but I think it needs a huge injection of members, and it wouldn't hurt if there was a common chat room that worked. More importantly, I think there needs to be a lot more interaction.

Good question. I hope I find some reason to renew my 1 month, but so far, nada.

Quoting InsightfulDaniel:

I have been a gold member for about six weeks. I will attempt to answer a few of the posts on this topic.

 

First, yes there are real nudists here, but they are few and far between. Second, I live in Arizona which is HOT and I am about an hour from two nude resorts and 3 hours from even more in Palm Springs CA. You would think I would be able to contact local nudist women--even for friendship. Not true! A couple of local guys contacted me. I'm not interested.

 

And third and maybe most importantly. Look at the Chat app and count how many men are signed into it and how many women. I estimate that there are AT LEAST 10 men for every woman, and my guess is the ratio is more like 20-1 or 30-1 or maybe even 50-1.

 

I chatted with an attractive woman recently who lives a couple thousand miles away from me and she said in a short period of time she had 4,000 views! In a comparable period I had maybe 150! She only has 1-2 pics posted of her breasts. Get the picture? Notice how this topic is almost exclusively being commented upon by MEN? The only woman who commented said all she gets are sex proposals! I believe it! Have you read the photo comments from many men? OMG, an attractive woman shows a couple of naked pics and guys are already saying what they want to do to her--in detail! These men have no business on this site and are wasting their time, and maybe their money (if they are paying members).

 

If you are a man looking for a female nudist to date or be friends with who lives in commuting distance, forget this site! If you are a man and not willing to post your pic, forget this site! If you are a man and not very attractive, forget this site! If you think that just because an attractive woman posts nude pics of herself that means she is going to have sex with you, forget this site!

 

If you are a nudist woman who is relatively attractive and you are willing to post at least one pic--you will probably get more winks, emails and chats than you can deal with!

 

Have I made my point???



You are assuming that all female photos represent actual females.  How many are actually males who post female photos for a variety of reasons? How many profiles here - both male and female - are genuine profiles and how many are 'dead' profiles used to attract attention?

OK on this site or any like it. The membership cou;d be over 1000 members

BUT less then 5 % are active and sign in once a week so you only get what

you pay for. If you don't use something for a long time it will stop working

I am afraid you are tight. Very few on here are real naturist.  Most people ignore messages or can't answer them because they aren't a gold member. I was hoping to find Friends but there are hardly any within 100 miles or I am not what people are looking for which is a bit scary!! Never mind I have given it a go but will expire my membership when it's finished and try going on naturist holidays and trips in hope of meeting friends.

Given that members can't even chat or do anything other then send useless "winks" to each other, not sure what the point of joining is when there are so few actual paying members.  Seems one paying member after another is disappointed with the set-up as is.  Plenty of sites on line for "photo collectors", but so few with any kind of conversation.  This site definitely needs some important changes.  Anyone listening and any plans to do so?
