Golden Rules
« on: May 01, 2018, 10:59:08 PM »
I found this "List of Golden Rules" in Lookee's "Secret Naturist Handbook."

"As a secret naturist you are usually operating in locations accessible to members of the public and there are a few very important rules and guidelines that should be followed during these times. These Golden Rules are not compulsory but are highly recommended, for you own safety.

1. Never leave all your clothing in one place, such as inside the car. Split into separate sets and hide each at different locations. Even if carrying your clothing, have a backup set hidden elsewhere.

2. If hiding clothing never leave house or car keys with your clothing. Hide them in a separate location so that if your clothing is lost or stolen, your keys should still be safe and secure.

3. Never visit the same location on a regular basis. If you go to the same place at 6.00pm every Tuesday evening and walk the same route, you are placing yourself in a potentially disastrous situation. Someone may be waiting for you!

4. When hiding clothing, make sure you will be able to find the spot when you return. Use a marker of some type to help identify the location.

5. Never reveal your secret naturist activities to anyone unless you are sure they can be trusted. Even then, consider the consequences of doing so.

6. Always look behind you. When you are concentrating on looking ahead, it can be easy to forget what might have appeared behind you."

Barefoot all over, all over.

These are Lookees Golden rules in high stealth mode. The other is our list for free range naturism, when it is a bad idea to be seen. Other than that, yup, there is a lot of grey nad over lap. that could be in the other list.

golden rules ((presumably for free range naturism) doesnt necessarily involve being unseen. so the two threads will have differences.


my golden rule is relax and dont panic if seen or even in a close encounter,  just act natural .

Thank you for saying that.  My goal is also to be relaxed and demonstrate that nudity is normal while meeting clothed people.  My goal is to be an ambassador for nude living by being seen and displaying the beauty and comfort of nude living in non-threatening casual encounters.  Just act natural because nude is natural.

In Canada we got several drill briefings on bear encounters.  The golden rule was 'make yourself bigger and walk away slowly backwards'.
Similar strategy for naturist encounters?  I think not! :D

I just say something like "Nice day for a walk" while passing them on the trail or wherever.  No  need for bear spray when encountering humans.

There is that good old bear bell joke, but as it comes to mind, I think that prudes which are offended to see other human bodies should wear bells to warn us. They are a tiny minority and could be accommodated that way. Sure, I'll put my hand over my genitals, smile and wave, letting them pass on. Then, wave a finger to their backs.

Excellent idea JBee.  Offended prudes could wear a bell to warn people they don't want to see.

After further consideration, the bells would disturb wildlife. Because we are a minority, someone might think that we should wear bells.

This puts two fringe minority elements at each other, nudes and prudes. Both wish that they had free reign and others conform. One of those minority groups actually does have free reign, approval and but not particularly, has a wish that others join them. The other group sees that they have a right to impose their value system upon others and force others to join them. This says to me something about prudish personalities.

Both assume that the majority is concerned about nudity. It seems that both assumptions are incorrect. 97% are accepting of nude people.

When we talked with the Forest Service official, he was surprised when we popped up with stats. He assumed. So, it may be that significant numbers of the majority that accepts nude bodies assume that there are many who do object. Assuming that people object to nude bodies may be the greater obstacle to nude liberation, from authorities and law.

It follows that the better way to get over this obstacle is for people to see and read about nude bodies roaming around. Still, it is one reaction to think it out in one's livingroom and often another reaction to actually experience seeing a nude and realizing from the experience that it is no big deal and non-sexual.

I blame the information superhighway for our abundance of malleable humans.  It is less about facts, science and data.  They (We?) have learned to be weary of information that doesn't fit our filters.  Take the big ruckus caused by the British Naturism group that rented the water park.  The 'prudes' were not going to listen to any facts regarding the safety of children in a naturist event.  Pedophiles are bad people and 'obviously' naked children would attract them.  The argument was lost from the start.
We must work to change the minds of those still listening.  We must stand up to the ignorance just like the park owner did in the BN event, knowing that they are just as much a minority as we are.  The 97% should be our focus.  The problem is in recognizing the remaining 3%.  No bells?!  Maybe we can all agree to go into a Body Snatcher's scream whenever we encounter one.

Yea, why can't they all be the stoner college professor, wanna be poet from Animal House instead? 

That was dang freaky Safebare, but that is surely how people image what an encounter is like when at leas one body is uncovered.

I have read recommendations to wear a bell when hiking in the back country.    The bell warns bears and other critters of your approach.   It is said that some hikers come around a corner and find themselves face to face with a very surprised bear who didn't hear you coming.  So they recommend wearing a bell. 

Maybe that would work for prudes too.  Nudes can be nasty when surprised in the wild.

I'd expect a goat or a cow, if I heard a bell coming around the corner. When I worried more about getting caught naked, I didn't get caught naked. My senses were up.

That bear that got surprised in the Huachuca Mountains by us seemed alarmed. But we were sitting still and quiet, naked. Human beings are curious creatures to watch, too. Ya never know what their going to do.
