First Social Naturist Exposure?

 

Take a free tour

Curious but not entirely sure you're ready? We completely understand. Visiting a naturist place can be a little scary the first time. We've all been there too, so we invite you to take a complimentary tour before you make any decisions.

We'll go over basic naturist etiquette and show you first-hand our beautiful facilities. It's a quick tour and there's never any sales pitch or pressure to stay. If you choose to stay, there will be forms to fill out, a copy of your driver’s license and a background check to ensure everyone’s safety.

What to expect

At first, the sight of other nude guests may be a little startling. However, you'll soon discover that nudists are amazingly comfortable in their own skin. Most guests stop noticing the nudity after about 15 minutes to an hour. It just seems so natural and normal when everyone is doing it.

Traditional nudist values

Our culture and values at Toadally Natural Garden are based on very simple principles; we promote family friendly nudism, which should be wholesome and respectful. If you choose to visit Toadally Natural Garden, you are accepting these core principles and agreeing to abide by them.

We have great fun dancing, gardening, sunbathing, swimming or playing volleyball, but suggestive attire and/or dancing are not welcome. We appreciate a tender moment between two adults in love, but public displays of affection should be discreet and innocent. Adventures in the bedroom should always be kept private. Discussions of swinging and recruiting are definitely not welcome here.

Our goal is to maintain a safe, welcoming environment where our guests can truly relax and feel comfortable. If you agree, we hope to see you here!

 

Frequently Asked Questions About Nude Recreation

 

Why do people choose nude recreation?

Nude recreation embraces the joy of living and experiencing nature in the most natural way possible. To relax and be nude is to let yourself be totally free. Although we enjoy clothing-free activities in appropriate settings, we also choose to wear clothes when practical. Nudists respect each other's individuality. Our own self-esteem is enhanced by our ability to accept ourselves as we really are. We find it easy to accept others regardless of physical size, shape, or body condition. Moreover, social class distinctions, often indicated by clothing, disappear.

Relaxation, stress relief, positive body image, and increasing self-esteem are just a few of the reasons people choose the nudist lifestyle.

 

 

What are the benefits of nude recreation?
Self-esteem is enhanced in the nudist world, where body acceptance is the norm. Conversation seems to come easier. Many report the “time warp” phenomenon. A one day respite spent clothes-free seems to relax people more than an entire weekend elsewhere. Without clothes, stress seems to melt away.

 

 

Is nude recreation an accepted mainstream activity?

The answer to this question is a resounding YES!

As reported in USA TODAY, The Yankelovich National Travel Monitor is one of the most respected polls in the travel industry. The 2006 edition of that poll found that 15% of adult Americans would consider a resort that offers a nude recreation experience or a clothing-optional beach experience either extremely or a very desirable part of a vacation.

In the January 17, 2003 edition of The Wall St. Journal, a front page story in the Marketplace section noted that nude recreation in North America has grown to a $400 million industry. The article explained that clothes-free offerings run the gamut from upscale venues with plush townhouses and room service to rustic rural retreats, to cruises on some of the world’s most popular cruise lines.

The Roper Organization has reported that some 54 million Americans have skinny-dipped in mixed company. For people who want to recapture the freedom and innocence of that experience, AANR clubs offer relaxing, down to earth, casual environments. Members may also participate in AANR World Adventures nudist vacations and cruises.

 

 

Is nude recreation legal?

Nudity is legal at designated resorts. The law can be a little fuzzier when it comes to nudity at beaches and public recreation areas. The Naturist Society works to protect nude recreation in such places where there is an established tradition for sunbathing. Ongoing efforts have led to an increasing number of locations where there is signage explaining where clothing-optional sections begin and end.

 

 

Will I feel self-conscious?

Most first-timers adjust to social nudity in a matter of minutes and discover it’s not nearly as big a deal as they thought it would be. Some feel self-conscious before they undress since they’re likely to be the only ones not nude.

 

 

What about  kids?

Children are natural nudists and quickly take to it like ducks take to water. Please review the state  and local statues where you intend to visit.

 

 

What's the difference between clothes-free vs. clothing-optional?

There’s a relatively minor difference between these two types of dress code. Clothing-optional destinations allow visitors to remain dressed, believing that some people take more time to adjust to social nudism. At clothes-free venues, you’re expected to be nude, although no one expects you to disrobe until taking a tour of the facility and deciding to stay.

 

 

 

How will I feel if I'm not in the greatest physical shape?

You’ll feel right at home. Naturist venues are a reflection of society at large, with people of all shapes and sizes.

 

 

 

Do men get visibly excited?

Not often. Naturist destinations are far less sexually charged than places where bikinis, thongs, or other provocative clothing, are worn. On the rare occasion where this occurs, simply don a towel, turn over, or take a quick dip in the water.

 

 

 

What about nudism and religion?
Naturists find nothing inconsistent between nude recreation and their convictions. You’ll find all faiths---and people of no faith---represented at naturist destinations. Some venues hold non-denominational services on Sundays. Most naturists of faith find that enjoying the great outdoors in their natural state draws them closer to their Creator.
 
What if we receive unwelcome advances?

This rarely happens. If it does, simply report it to management and steps will be taken to ensure it does not happen again. Everyone should feel comfortable. Behavior requiring an apology is not tolerated.

 

 

 

How can I make my spouse / significant other more comfortable about trying it?

It helps to understand that Toadally Natural Garden is a family friendly place. Few people of either sex at TNG or anywhere else for that matter---are “perfect 10s” or look like size-2 actresses.

 

 

 

Will my picture be taken or my privacy compromised?

At Toadally Natural Garden privacy is paramount to our guests. There is never any requirement to be publicly identified or consent to having one’s picture taken. (Photo identification is usually required for admission, along with other measures to ensure guest security.) And just for your peace of mind, the tasteful images that appear on this website have been taken with the written permission of the subject(s) depicted.

In increasing numbers, however, our guests are telling neighbors and friends about their favorite way to relax. They find it’s an idea that’s just too great to keep for themselves!
