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?
