You Will Need
Don't call them nudists
Don’t call them nudists. The politically correct term is 'naturist.'
Don't stare at people's private parts
Don't stare at people's private parts. Here’s a good rule of thumb: If it would be unseemly to gape at that body part when it’s fully clothed, it’s downright rude to gawk at it undressed.
Ask permission before taking photographs
Always ask permission before snapping a photo or video -- they're naturists, not zoo animals. And no one wants to worry that their jelly rolls are going to be on YouTube.
Be wary of using binoculars
The same goes for binoculars, which are only appropriate if you’re discovering new lands, looking at birds, or enjoying an opera.
Restrict nudity to the beach
Restrict nudity to the beach. When you're in the parking lot, for example, have some clothes on.
Cover chairs with a towel
Carry a towel wherever you go so you can put it down on beach loungers, bar stools, restaurant chairs, and so on.
Make everyone feel comfortable
Make everyone feel comfortable, even those who are only willing to go so far as being 'top-free," as the naturists like to call it. Naturists, after all, are all about acceptance.
