Greetings all hot spring users, I wish to add a comment on all of this. I am sorry I am not a female, of which none have replied. I am however a married man who attends DCHS alone. My wife understands my need to go once in awhile. It has been 5 years at least since I have been there. I plan to attend this Labor Day weekend. I am guessing it will be busy these days. I discovered this post while looking to refresh myself with the directions. First I would like to add that anyone, and they know who they are, that continues to behave badly along the sexual boundaries line, must realize they are the very reason most nude beaches have lost their status as a nude beach as a result of this uncontrolled behavior. As a male attending alone, I can understand the boost in libido that occurs simply by being in the environment. Having a satisfying love life in my marriage, the libido increase I speak of is something different. It is more primal, and connected to nature. Just the feel in general of being nude outdoors is exciting in itself. That being said, the behavior is the issue here. Regardless of ones feelings about the privacy issue, being a public place, inappropriate behavior can make many uncomfortable. If everyone would be completely honest, I am sure they would have to admit that having a sexual experience on a trip to a hot spring can be very romantic. I have been trying to get my wife to go for years but she is just not interested, but I must add that after an entire day hiking, swimming and soaking nude, I wish she was there so we could search out a private area for.... well you all know. Without going on and on here rehashing all that has been said, it is very simple really. Mutual consent and respect. Anyone who wishes to be left alone should be extended that courtesy, (not talking privacy in a sexual sense here) however if you are a more social person looking to meet someone, just because we are all nude doesn't mean the rules of decent etiquette change. Single guys reading this, if you are not already doing so, please try to be more sensitive to recognize polite signals from others and Deep Creek. For readers who are strongly opposed to the unfortunate, but real possibility, that others my want to escape for a moment of passion, understand we are in fact human beings all created with the same desires, some more than others of course. Nudists at Deep Creek should be aware that wandering around the creek, they may accidentally be surprised by such a situation, just as those seeking out privacy should use the utmost discretion for others. It is unfortunate that with more crowded conditions everywhere in the world, trying to find that private outdoor spot anywhere these days is a challenge for lovers. It shouldn't be looked upon as such an offense if respect, discretion and proper etiquette is observed. Remember that while the Naturist Society's general rules are a good guideline, those rules really only apply to licensed, private resorts. While on public National Forest Land, federal laws are the rule and nudity is not against the law on this land. I have hiked Mt Whitney nude five times and talked with Rangers about this issue. The way I understand it is, if there are complaints, the Sheriffs and Rangers can enforce laws of the local city's with regard to public nudity. So everyone please, I am sure most of us know if we are misbehaving. What we really don't want is Rangers being forced to act on complaints that could lead to the demise of nude usage of Deep Creek. Remember, we all travel a long way for a pleasant day. It is simple, common courtesy, mutual respect and consent, consideration, discretion. All the things that help make a pleasant society. When children are present, there is NO argument, take it down the road.... Parents who want their children along need to take extra care too, to protect them from an accidental sighting as it were. Personally though, I don't feel this particular location needs to be thought of as a family location, parents who are genuinely concerned may fair better if they attend the private resorts where these rules are strictly adhered to. One of the things I like about being a nudist is the freedom, the feeling of freedom. Where is the freedom, if we impose all these man made restrictions on such a beautiful natural location.
Preserve that freedom, and control how we enjoy that freedom with equal respect to everyone. I do agree with the "boys will be boys" comment in an earlier post. But boys, you still must be in control of your behavior as best you can. Lastly, to the ladies; boys are unfortunately cursed by being born with a penis, a distraction that I admit has cost me countless hours of lost productivity. Ladies, I can only ask on behalf of all men, for a little more understanding of our nature in nature. We go to enjoy being nude and because nudity is so uncommon in our society, it is only natural to want to look at each other, we simply don't see it often. Folks who enjoy looking, be discrete if you can. Some people enjoy being looked at too, and in a sense we need you. To all nudists, we should expect we will be looked at under the circumstances. Its simple biology. Sometimes we can't help it, but we must try. Human sexuality is a natural thing, it is a good thing. We go through all the motions of life but we all want to have a healthy love life too, right. To everyone, I am not trying to lecture, just trying to help. Thanks for reading, I am open to critique. In ending, I wish to leave you with a quote from Betty, a wonderful nudist I met many years ago at Elysium Fields, a nudist resort in Topanga Canyon, CA. With regard to the horny single men, boys and the like, as I mentioned about the libido increase earlier, we are stuck, it is inherent within our nature as the male of the human species, it is the very reason DCHS is so crowded now... to many babiessmiling smiley Betty simply said to me, "Not to worry, what goes up, must come down." Ancient cultures had a way of celebrating virility as a good thing, worshiping phallic statues etc. Society seems to want to make the act of love shameful and full of guilt, which is truly a shame, but that is another can of worms. So we can all hopefully agree, an erection in and of itself is not a bad thing, it is what you do with it in the presence of others that matters. Discretion, Consideration, Courtesy and MOSTY, MUTUAL CONSENT AND RESPECT BETWEEN ALL PARTIES! Thats is all.
