Technology. Cruising is mostly digital now. Basically… we have a menu to pick from and we don’t have to deal with a lot of the unwanted that you guys had to deal with. And if you want sex on the beach you just order it.
I’ve never been a club or let’s hit the local cruise spot guy. I’m not a fan of apps either. I live my life and meet people while doing so. I prefer meeting people who are out actually doing things in life that I can get behind before I get behind them. >
Grew up going traveling. A nude beach was nothing to my parents. My parents have never thought nudity was a bad thing & they are quite Christian. What makes it bad is the intent of the observer is what they taught me. That means I’m comfy in just my skin. No complaints so far.
In the US skeevy men tend to troll the beaches. Going to a nude beach is almost like a fetish here (even family friendly ones) compared to European locations where the entire family go and it's no big deal. Seriously... it's like telling someone you're part of a swingers group.
The last time I hit a nude beach stateside was 3 years ago. The boyz & I (varying orientations & ages) did a road trip.
We all played sports and had no problem being naked around people. It wasn't anything sexual. Most of our parents had seen us most or all of naked. Some are more conservative than other & we respected that. It was nothing to have a weekend at one of our houses and find us jumping in the pool naked, walking out of the shower naked, etc. My friends know I would answer the door naked at home. If my parents let them in and they came into my room I slept naked. Jumping in my bed to wake me resulted in my wrestling in the buff. Me half sleep walking to get a drink at night… naked. It was nothing to my parents.
They only bothered me about cloths when we had specific company.
Can’t say I’m a nudist … I’m just comfy with my skin & always find myself naked when I wake up if I fall asleep in cloths.
Anyway..... we rented a beach house. There were some ladies, but mostly older men. Not a problem with older guys. A goodlooking, fit older & confident guy is hot. Fuck... I like the experience the two I have been with brought. These guys were not those. These guys were sleazy & made all our skins crawl.
The 1st day there saw us leaving the beach after being there for only a little bit. The men were a problem. A couple of guys started taking pics and/or vids. The skeevy "boy I'll teach you some things" & offers of pay were just.... ewww.
We got swim suits the next morning. We weren't even left alone in the suits. We ended up spending most of the time there in shorts when trying to enjoy the beach (though we mostly avoided it) because guys were so fucking annoyingly pervy.
They gave the impression that even boys would not be safe there with their families. That is just how gross those guys were.
Being naked, young, and fit didn't mean we wanted to be propositioned by guys who acted as though there was nothing on the beach to do other than ogle our ass and dicks. If you're going to look... look. Don't be pervy about it though. If you see ur making people uncomfotable in thier own skin with the come ons... back the fuck off.
Only 2 of the 8 of us had been to a nude beach. We really just wanted to enjoy the beach in the buff, but that was ruined.
