What's Life Really Like In A French Nudist Colony?

We at The Swingers Hub are very lucky to have a place like this very close to where we live here in the U.S.A.

The naturist village of Cap d'Agde in the south of France is one where wearing clothes is prohibited.

 

There's a village in France that actually prohibits people from wearing clothes. The naturist village of Cap d'Agde in the south of France is the largest nudist community in the world, with 50,000 residents and summer visitors. They have all the workings of any small town with 180 businesses, including restaurants, salons, banks, and grocery stores. And yes, people go to all of these establishments entirely in the nude.

 

Not surprisingly, this community has attracted tourists from all over the world. It's likely that most of them come because they associate nudity with sex acts and they expect to see some shocking things happening in public. Unfortunately for these tourists Cap d'Agde is actually a very family-friendly community. Sex in public is banned as well as various other "indecent" acts. However, there are several sex shops and lingerie stores that have cropped up in recent years, which has caused tension between the sexually liberal and the more conservative parts of the community.

 

Either way, both populations seem to thoroughly enjoy the benefits of being naked. That's because the biggest reason behind nudity for most of them is that it brings equality to everyone. The tourism office has even commented that "Nudity brings everyone to the same social level." Which brings up a good point - why do we wear clothes in the first place? Other than protection from weather, the main reason seems to be that it helps us distinguish ourselves. Police wear uniforms so we can identify their authority, some people buy expensive clothing to show off their wealth, etc. If we take away the identifier of clothing, it puts us all on the same level.
