Nudist David Dixon says he is ‘Tired of repetitious and inaccurate arguments made against Tyagarah clothing-optional beach,’ citing us pesky Tyagarah residents as the culprits.
Here are some incidents that have occurred over the past month. They are by no means exhaustive, just a portion of the incidents that residents and their summer guests have witnessed.
A man walks into the Tea Tree Lakes and witnesses two men engaging in oral sex. Various accounts of naked men in the Tyagarah Beach carpark. A woman witnesses a male and female having sex on Tyagarah Beach just outside the nude zone. A woman sunbaking in the nude zone is harassed by a naked man leering at her from behind a bush. A car is run off the road into the bushes on Grays Lane by people heading to the nude beach. Regular nudists intentionally intimidating clothed beach users.
This is not repetition, David, and it’s all accurate. While we do everything we can to encourage reporting to police there will never be full reporting. Some say they ‘Just don’t want to get involved’.
We understand that many if not most nudists practise healthy nudity but that does not make the beach safe.
Denial of the dark culture that pervades the nude beach area is dangerous and sad.
