What Does a Guy Wear to the Nude Beach?

by Rob Boyte

Published Naturally Summer 2000

We humans are a stylish bunch, even in our nudity.  Here on Miami Beach there are many statues of nude women from the Art Deco era of the '20s to the '50s.  Most of them, totally absent of clothes, can be dated to their respective decade by the way the women's hair is arranged.  So, even without clothes we wear our styles. 

           

While looking back on the skinny-dippers of the Woodstock generation, notice the shoulder length hair and beards on the guys, the long, straight, ironed hair on the girls.  On our black brothers and sisters it was the equally identifiable round Afro-bushes.  See my point?  Without a stitch on, we know that the photo was taken in the '70s. 

           

The clothing optional section of Haulover Park Beach in Miami-Dade county is very popular with national and international tourists, as well as locals from several counties in South Florida.  The beach is also popular with gay men from this metropolitan area, and on any given day they comprise about half the people congregating on the sand and in the surf. 

           

While sitting here each weekend, surrounded by mostly men, (most of whom - but not all - are gay) I get a sense of community.  Not so much a community based on sexual orientation, but one based on men in their natural state.   Almost tribal, we come together and mill about naked.  And, just as so many naked natives of Africa and South America differentiate their tribe by wearing certain identifying markings or ornaments on their body, we each carry our own such personal attire, even while nude.

           

When we go to the beach and strip off our clothes, we are in effect nude.  But, for most of us there are at least some patches of hair that cover parts of our body.  Of course there are shaved nudists who work on removing even that natural covering, revealing the fact that naturists are not always entirely natural.  Many wear these little tribal markings and ornaments that show where they're coming from or what they're into, whether it be shaved pubes, tattoos, or pierced body parts.

           

Much of this altering of the natural body goes against some of the traditional nudist values  and many landed clubs still refuse to allow such people the use of their facilities.  But on a metropolitan nude beach, everyone is allowed to come wearing their true identity, whether it be the totally natural and unshaved furry back, or one of multicolored patterns, or just the pattern of the last stylish bathing suit they wore.  Years from now, people will see photos from the nude beach in the last decade of the 20th Century and be able to date it by the style of tattoos, piercings, clothing patterns, and ornaments being worn.

           

Such is the cosmopolitan nature of our nude beach at Haulover.  Here are a few examples of what some men wear on the nude beach .
