 I am a 40-year old male. I went to a local nude beach this weekend by myself and really liked it. As I was coming back from the water, I ran into a family from the my neighborhood. It was a mother and her two daughters, 14 and 17 years old. I was standing there in front of them and we were all naked. The problem is the kids are friends of my kids. I am not sure what to do. I don't know if I can ever go back to that beach or what will happen when I see them again in a social suituation. I am not sure I want my kids to find out but I can't say anything to anyone...thoughts?

    Um,what's wrong with your kids finding out you don't have issues with nudity?I know some people see nudity as something perfectly natural,if you feel the same then it's something you may want to teach your not be ashamed and what not.I don't know,if my parents told me they went to a nude beach I wouldn't's their life,lol. :) Edit-And as far as running into the people in a social situation,I don't think it'll be a big deal...they obviously don't have issues with nudity..why would they care if you were there?Just my two cents. :P

    Yes!Tell the secret! First of all, you are of age and have every right to be there. The fact that the neighbor used her terrible judgment to bring her underage daughters is NOT your fault. Obviously when your kids are at their house, there is no telling what they can get into. I would invite them to your house and discuss it as adults. I would NOT let my kids at her house anymore!

    Apparently, you were at a family nudist beach, so I don't think that you have anything to worry about! I would encourage you to share what happened with your children-perhaps they too are interested in family nudism!

    Not sure you have an issue.

    So you were seen by someone you know at a nude beach. I presume that you are worried about her kids telling your kids.

    Exactly how are they going to reveal your secrect without revealing their secret? "Hey Xxxxxx, you'll never guess who I saw at the nude beach the other day? Your Dad!"

    Their secret is now known to the whole world. There is one thing that is very easy to embarass and that is a teenage girl. Do you believe that she wants it all over her school that she hangs out at a nude beach? I am going to guess not. You may want to approach the mother and ask her for her discretion and that of her kids and I am almost sure that the mother also wants your discretion.

    I wouldn't be so concerned if I were you. This family is obviously open about nudism and therefore they would think that it is natural and would not bother talking about it to your kids. You could also slowly introduce nudism at home so that if they do mention it in passing, your kids would understand what type of lifestyle you want to adopt.

    First of all, with regard to a nude beach, there is no such thing as 'underage', nor is it poor judgment to bring a child there. There is nothing that happens at a nude beach that does not happen at other beaches besides the fact that people see each other without clothes. I mean, really, you can see a lot through many bathing suits when they are wet, anyway, but if you are wearing one, you are stuck with the 'drippies' when you get out of the water.

    Second, I doubt that your kids friends are likely to 'out' themselves as nudists by telling everyone else, including your own kids, 'Hey, we saw your dad at the nude beach yesterday". Maybe they'll expect to see your whole family there next, which may or may not happen, even if you try to make it happen. My wife agrees with nudity as a concept, but doesn't seem to be able to get there in reality, even in private, never mind social situations. I'm the total opposite. I really don't care, and feel more comfortable nude.

    There are more than 6 billion humans in the world. Get over the incorrect notion that any 'parts' you have are anything more than minor variations of a mean design of which there are two models, male and female, which still leaves you about 3 billion other individuals with which to be highly similar.

    I still find it amazing that humans are so bizarre as to be highly uncomfortable with the state in which they were born.

    I can't help but think that there is more here to you're fear of being "outed" as a nudist. You name implies that perhaps you were not alone. Forgive me if I'm wrong , but the Bear moniker would imply that perhaps you just don't want to be outed. Like all above have already said, there is no reason to be ashamed or embarrassed of. Nude beaches are all family friendly. But I would count on the kids talking ... that's what kids do... it may not be now.. but eventually it will come up. Beating them to the punch will be less shocking and on your terms. Looks like this happened over a year ago ... curious to find out what happened.

    We had a pool in our yard for 20 years and our kids swam naked as well as our friends and their kids. I don't see that an damage was done. Our kids are all normal and have grown into responsible adults. Nudity is not a problem. Bad behavior is. I don't think you shoud worry about. If your aske a question by ANYONE just give the honest answer and you will never get into trouble.

    At a minimum you should tell your kids that you were there, that you think you saw someone you know, and that they might hear about it from kids at school. The point about not spreading it around that the girls go to a nude beach is a good one. Check with your kids to see what they know about who goes there. If they aready know the girls go there, fess up and tell the whole story. If they don't, then you shouldn't be the one to tell them.

    If they want to know if they can go, the answer is "yes." You and your wife could even go with them. If you run into the other family, so what. That would probably be a good thing, to clear the air on the topic.

    Kids should not go to a nude beach.They should not be exposed to potentiallysexual situations with adults.
