Soap Box

 


We are a family oriented club that sponsors a twice monthly get together during the summer months in secluded areas of the outer banks.

Our goal is to promote a respectful relationship between man and nature and to provide a social forum where individuals who share the desire to be clothing free can congregate.  

We endeavor to provide activities in which all ages can participate

Additionally we support many efforts to preserve our beaches including cleanup day, assisting nesting turtles and other projects of merit


Idea of the Month

When you go out to find that secluded spot take a couple of trash bags to lay on and fill them up on the way back


 

Guide to Appropriate Behavior
at
Clothing-Optional Beaches

Here are some  practical guidelines to good sense and courteous behavior which encourage everyone to have a nice day at a clothing-optional beach.

 

  • STAY OUT OF DUNES and other environmentally sensitive areas.

     

  • OBEY PARKING REGULATIONS and other posted rules.

     

  • Help with litter by bringing along a trash bag. Carry out more than you brought in - Please

     

  • Don't Leave established nude areas without clothes. To wander nude in a clothed beach or parking area will offend many. It undermines our objectives.

     

  • Please, no overt sexual activity. Leave exhibitionism to those attending clothed beaches. Nude is not lewd, but combined with sex, undermines our image.

     

  • RESPECT THE PROPERTY OF OTHERS.

     

  • Ask prior consent for photography.  People can't legally be stopped from taking pictures in public areas. However, asking permission is common courtesy.  Not everyone wants to end up in a stranger's photo album.  Children should not be photographed.

     

  • Privacy is fundamental! Many are at the beach for quiet time and don't want to be disturbed. Beach Romeos and Juliets are people who can't take "No, I would like to be left alone" for an answer. It is not wrong for a man or woman to go to the beach to make new friends - but it is rude to monopolize a person's time when the welcome mat was never put out.

     

  • Bring beach supplies: beverage, food, chair, sunscreen and towel. Don't expect others to share these items. Mooching is offensive.

     

  • Speak up for standards. If a person seems unaware of beach etiquette, explain it, kindly and plainly. Give them a copy of "Appropriate Behavior." Don't let uncouth individuals ruin our fragile and beautiful place under the sun!
