Beach facts

Yuti McLean, Mullumbimby

Many, if not most, sexually focused visitors are attracted to the Tyagarah Beach and the tea-tree lake purely because of the beach’s ‘clothing optional’ status.

Naturist social media pages find they are flooded with sexual references as soon as there is a clothing-optional beach mentioned. 

According to the Get Naked Australia Instagram page their social media outlets have a combined total of 250,000 followers. Let’s say 100,000 of those are there to look at girls’ bums. These pests also chat about the sexual fun they can have on our beach and spread that idea to other networks.

There have been perverted characters secretly attending naturist events and taking photos, which has forced naturists to cease their events until a clean-up has been achieved. 

Many men come here to masturbate towards us women. They ignore our lack of interest and persist in trying to get our attention. They even stay around the area after committing that offence as though it is all okay and expected behaviour here. 

No matter how loudly or clearly you, me or naturists state ‘nude is not rude’, only the converted hear that. The rest hear that nudity = sexually free behaviour and they come with that focus.

I would like to know if the councillors who voted to keep the clothing-optional beach understand the direct role a clothing-optional beach has in attracting sexually focused visitors?

    Yes lets trial closing it down.
    A deserted beach wont attract these people.

    Social media will tell them this deserted beach is no longer a good dogging site.

    All the other dogging sites are listed in highly populated areas……arent they…
    Like out of the way parks and beaches.

    The wankers prefer being closer to populated areas so they can be closer to law enforcement and watchful eyes.

    Yuti McLean, your comment ‘Many, if not most, sexually focused visitors are attracted to the Tyagarah Beach and the Tea Tree Lake purely because of the beach’s ‘Clothing Optional’ status is oxymoron to say the least.
    Are you stating that many if not most are there sexually focused and that those are actually all there for sex and not actually Naturists?
    Naturist Media Pages find they are flooded with Sexual references as soon as their is a Clothing Optional Beach mentioned?
    You are wrong. There is no evidence what so ever in what you have stated, no evidence at all.
    Your attack on GNA could not be further from the truth, a young married couple in their late 20’s who are living the dream, promoting non sexual Naturism in some of the most beautiful locations in Australia.
    The couple recently in Byron Bay disputing exactly what you and others from Grays Lane had inferred.
    I’d suggest before further allegations are made you should check the evidence you have and publicly apologise to this lovely couple.
    As for the rest of your letter, unless you have hard facts and evidence then really it’s just all FaKE as proven before.

      Thank you for asking about the facts. In my original letter there were “quote” marks around the mention of the amount of sexual pests joining the Naturists Get Naked Australia Instagram page. For some reason they were deleted by the Echo editor. I was actually quoting from GNA’s own writings. I have nothing against Naturists in fact I see they are as frustrated as we are by the hijacking of their movements by pervs. see:

    Well Yeti you are obviously not converted Yet! Therefore by inference you must also be one of those who looks at the girls bums. I can assure you that in my city of Melbourne that secluded parks in Melbourne are full of masturbating men, and there are no nudists whatsoever in those locations If you remove nudists from Tyagarah, it is still a place where men will go, and nothing will change except one section of the community will lose the right to do no harm to others by swimming and sunbathing nude.
    Do you think Wearing G-string is fine, or is that more provocative than being naked. I await you response Yeti.

    So please explain to me how Sydney’s nudist beaches have been so successful.
    Surely with so many more people around, the problems you state (imagine?) would be far worse than we supposedly encounter??
    By the way, in 2 years of nearly weekly visits to Tyagarah, my wife and I have never had or seen any problems.

  5. Anita Hayter says:

    Yuti Mc Lean do you think that most robberies occur near banks because the presence of money causes these robberies and therefore banks should be closed down? Because this is the same flawed logic you use to blame Legal Clothes Optional Beaches for the presence of sexual perverts at nearby locations (like the Grays Lane Carpark which is over 200m from the start of the legal beach or the Tea Tree lakes which has never been a legal clothes optional area). Remote beaches attract sexual perverts. And if you take away the legal clothes optional beach at Tyagarah you will have even more sexual perverts there because there won’t be nudists trying to fix the problem.

    I agree wholly Debra Conomy comments ,i attended the beach on the 11/11/18 there were a good mix of couples and singles women and males enjoying the C/O area ,not a wanker i sight.Yuti your artical is based on fabrications,inaccuracies and ancient events.
