Top 5 Fears of a Clothing Optional Resort

To have a successful clothing optional getaway at a Nude Resort

If you’ve gone skinny dipping, or visited a nude beach at one point, you’re ready to take the next step and book a weekend getaway at a local naturist resort or embark on a clothing optional vacation (or nakation).

which way to the nude beach?There’s some great Mexican luxury destinations like the sister Desire Resorts (Desire Pearl and Desire Riviera Maya) that offer spectacular, luxury, playful, clothing optional getaways for you and your partner. But, you’re nervous! You’re unsure of the expectations! What if it’s a meat market and there’s a lot of pressure to do things I don’t want? Let’s take away some of that fear.

Having visited Desire Pearl a few years ago, let me assure you that Desire Resorts are a safe, body-positive, luxurious, couples’ clothing-optional getaway. Desire’s golden rule of “No Means No” is a non-negotiable line in the sand (yet it never came into play when we visited) to make sure you are always at ease. Is it sensual – Yes! Does it have it’s sexual elements – Yes!

Expectations and Viva la Difference

As partners considering a nakation experience, there’s 2 key things to understand:

textile-free connectionsThe freeing benefits of no tan lines, no textile limitations while swimming, the body-positive realization of what normal bodies are really like and the time communicating and connecting is a wonderful boon to a relationship – making for a great vacation experience!

Top 5 Myths of a Clothing Optional Resort like Desire

Clearly, there are a lot of misconceptions and myths surrounding what happens at a nudist resort. Let’s debunk those myths with some facts.

  1. Clothing-optional resorts are for swingers: There is absolutely no correlation between nudists and swingers. Some swingers are nudists, and some nudists are swingers, but that’s about the extent of it. Desire Resorts welcomes and respects everyone, consequently it doesn’t ban or encourage any lifestyle choices.
  2. am I comfortable naked?Being naked around strangers will make you feel self-conscious: The naked truth (pun intended) is actually the opposite. A 2017 study by Goldsmiths, University of London, found that being nude in public fosters feelings of satisfaction and improves body-image as well as self-esteem. The study showed that the longer and more frequently the participants “practiced” being naked in public, the happier they were.
  3. Not nude = prude: Unlike other resorts with nude areas that require guests to bare it all, guests at Desire Resorts have complete control of when and how they chose to disrobe. While clothing is mandatory at some areas, like the restaurants, at clothing-optional areas it is up to each guest to decide just how much skin to show.
  4. clothing optional couples getawayYou will be hit on: One of the benefits of Desire Resorts being couples-only is the properties are geared towards romance, not hook-ups. Everyone there is visiting with their plus one, and while people tend to be friendlier, because along with the clothes go the social inhibitions, you can rest assured that you and your significant other will be left alone to enjoy your vacation and each other.
  5. Anything goes: For the most part, people who regularly enjoy nude vacations understand that nakedness is not an invitation of any sort. Desire Resorts have a very strict code of conduct, and guests are reminded of it (and even asked to sign in agreement upon check-in). Privacy is crucial and respect is critical, therefore no pictures are allowed at the clothing-optional areas; keeping safety as the uttermost priority.

Whether you are a longtime nudist or are thinking of trying it for the first time, consider a vacation at Desire Resorts. It’s definitely the most fun you can have with your clothes on (off).
