Nudist Fun Poly Couple looking to Burn

Post by nudecouple » Tue May 10, 2016 9:21 pm

My wife and I will be at the 2016 burn. We're total virgins are want to know what the fun party spots are. We love to drink, party and generally get weird. Any "don't miss" spots that we should be aware of?

There are lots of fun venues for play, but ...

it is probably best to lead, here, with camping/art/technical interests.

Playa dust is not a superior lubricating agent, despite what you might think.

You absolutely, positively must attend the ePlaya Meet & Greet Wednesday evening beginning at 6 p.m. at everyone's favorite theme camp, I refer of course to Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro. Since you're supplying the weirdness, I'll supply the absinthe.

Well there's always the Glory Hole Grab on Wednesday 3pm in Deep Playa. Bring your own wipes to that one.

THANK YOU!

We need more nudists out there!
Nude used to be normal (late '90's BM) but has been getting more rare every year since.

Makes me very sad that less and less burners will experience the mental gymnastics needed to go nude in public the first time, as it's easier to take that first step when 1000's are out there doing it.

The current normal thing is using adornment sometimes crafted specifically to highlight partial nakedness.
"But I'm empowered!" (not to be confused with liberated....)


I just read yesterday that nudist organizations are having a hard time recruiting young people,,,,

"Tan, an Australian naturist magazine, said that GenXers and GenYers are afraid of being seen nude on social media."

Yes: forego pushing ones comfort zone/boundries in favor of that all important need to be "liked"and not challenged or given thumbs down ....

And the neon piece from the very astute artist Camilo Matiz, from his series “Here Not There” (check it out):

I think those naturalists are reading a bit too much into the motives of young people. The problem is probably less about body-image insecurity and more that social media makes it easier for such photos or "documentation" to spread beyond their target audiences. With the ubiquitousness of cameras, the ease of sharing, and the overlap and interconnectivity of formerly disparate social circles, such photos can affect careers, family life, social circles, etc.

BBadger is probably correct,,,,that young of 2016 might never feel safe being naked in public.

In that light, it makes more sense that there is so little 100% nakedness left in BM.

Or, to put BBadgers words in a quote:

Once the theme camps applications have been sorted out, we'll know who is coming back and what events might be happening. Just a little early yet. Poly-Paradise has a nice High Tea, but that isn't exactly a party.

This is it. We used to do the nude beaches for vacations, but had to stop due to not being able to control who is taking a picture of what with what. Even if you are topless in the background of a shot, you can get fired from your job if the company notices the posting.

Heck, we cannot tell anyone we are going to Burning Man for fear of losing our jobs, so forget going nude.

Welcome to ePlaya!
The poly thing would "not be a good fit" in our camp, and perhaps not the drinking-party thing very much either.
But we are promoting family-friendly naturism (G-rated nudity).
And dancing on the piano will be fine... I think.

Also, we are planning some photo shoots for a calendar (to be distributed as a camp fundraising perk), with nude folks riding bicycles and otherwise toying with bicycles. (This is inspired by Spencer Tunick's fabulous photographs.) So perhaps you would like to join us in these photo "installations".

How'd you get my picture? Damn Internet!

I have seen quite a bit more full-on nudity at the regional events. Hell, I've even participated in it at a regional. It was definitely a new experience, but I wasn't necessarily uncomfortable once I was doing it. This was also at night and with a group of other people participating in the same venture. It's definitely situational, and the regionals are a lot smaller and intimate.

Another factor I'd mention too is that there there are creeps at these events. In one regional, a friend of mine who enjoys being nude at that event felt uncomfortable being naked and put clothes back on. It was not because of being naked, but because of the creeps that it attracted. In another year a friend was groped by some other creep. They're out there, and at a much larger, semi-mainstream, international event like Burning Man, the probability of encountering such creeps is even higher.

My first exposure to Bianca's Smut Shack was in 1998, my first year, and evidently, the last year Bianca's was "smut" heaven.

My new born burginal love of the BM society where sex goings on were right there virtually in the open, how no one seemed uncomfortable, how no "observer" crowds were oogoling obnoxiously...that feeling of peace on earth lasted a few hours until I saw a reflection of glass behind a small hole in a shade tarp. I rushed around the side, and as I expected, it was a camera lens. I scolded the creep, but seeing him taught me the lesson that even the best things at this incredible event were an illusion.

All burns since, it's been helpful to remember the importance of Virginia Woolf's statement:

“Why, if it was an illusion, not praise the catastrophe, whatever it was, that destroyed illusion and put truth in it's place?”

There's been some good advice so far. Make sure to also Google "Party Naked Tiki Bar" and "Retrofrolic" and see if they'll be around. Oh, and see if Slutgarden, a large dance camp, is coming this year. Last year they held "The Slut Olympics"--it was very entertaining. :lol:

You may also want to enter keywords (such as "nudist" or "poly", but feel free to get more creative) into this list of last year's placed theme camps:
http://burningman.org/culture/history/b ... eme-camps/

The 9 o'clock side, with its Red Light District, is more party-party than the 3 o'clock side (overall) . . . but there's probably stuff to interest you all over the place.

Be sure to look at the What/When/Where Guide the Greeters will give you after Gate, and look for events with a keyhole next to them--those are adult-oriented. Check under "One-Time Events" first, with a fine sharpie ( . . . ballpoint pens come to the dust to die! . . . ) then go to "Repeating Events".

You will make it to maybe one of the things you circle. :lol: You'll get distracted most of the other times . . .

Wow, good advice thank you!

We're not too shy about pictures and stuff, and I'm hoping that my stature (6'3 210lbs) will deter the creeps from getting grabby with the wife (Shhh...Just don't tell them I'm a fluffy teddy bear) .

We are definitely comfortable with G-rated nude fun, or anything else in the correct environment. Saw the party naked tiki bar and the naked pub crawl, we'll definitely check those out. We'll be towing up our travel trailer, and have no camp affiliation at the moment.

Just want to make something special and get weird the good old fashioned way.

Polyparadise also has the Human Carcass Wash if you are in need of a bath--and don't mind people touching you while they are bathing you (they do ask for your boundaries).

Fortunately, there is so much nudity at the Burn (especially topless women and nude men in cowboy hats and shoes, hahaha!) that a scantily clad, topless or naked woman is generally only looked at, instead of at great risk of being grabbed. Much less so than in the default world. Of course, there is the rare creep or clueless n00b who must be swiftly advised, and occasionally someone who doesn't ask before taking a photo of a nude person at a recognizable distance. This is against the accepted standard, though. Consent is a significant issue. There's even an entity called the Bureau of Erotic Discourse (BED) who holds seminars on the playa about consent and whatnot. :)
We are definitely comfortable with G-rated nude fun, or anything else in the correct environment. Saw the party naked tiki bar and the naked pub crawl, we'll definitely check those out. We'll be towing up our travel trailer, and have no camp affiliation at the moment.

Good luck being the weirdest person on the playa. ;) You might fit in more than you want to!
