I went to my first nudists resort in VT this summer and had a blast. the people where great. I felt very lucky to have been able to enter the resort because they said that most resorts don't except single men. I didn't realize this. Is this true for most resorts?
I have been to three nudist retreats/resorts, two in Pennsylvania and one North Carolina, and never seen or heard of any restrictions to not being permitted there as a single male. I have seen fees being higher if you went alone, but not restricted from entering. And any quality resort you have to be a member of AANR before you can even get in has been my experience.
I've been to three nudist resorts in my area and have not encountered either a "no singles" or "no single men" policy. Maybe that's because we're all so crazy-liberal here in the SF Bay Area? LOL.
I've heard about the policy in my decades of nudism. I think it was taken for granted for the longest time but some years ago there was an article questioning the policy. Basically, if we're not there for sex, and since sexual expression is a no-no, why do we have to be paired off like Noah's ark?
That might have caused some resorts to relax their policy on the subject; I haven't done a survey or anything. But there might still be a valid reason: the comfort or discomfort of female guests. Basically, women might be more comfortable in a crowd closer to a 50/50 gender balance. If men predominate by a lot, women might be a little weirded out. Maybe some women on here would like to comment on that idea?
I'm a gay man and my resort visits have been in the company of a male partner and sometimes a group of gay men. As a couple, we fit the Noah's ark rule of "no single men" but increase the potential for outnumbering women (two of us, not just "a single") by a margin that makes them uncomfortable. So maybe somebody needs to decide which reason they're basing our exclusion on and consider whether their policy makes sense.
