Frequently Asked Questions about the nudist lifestyle and Paradise Valley Resort

Paradise Valley Resort is proud to be a member of Partnership For Nude Recreation

Why do people choose nude recreation?

Nude recreations allows individuals and families to start living and experiencing the most natural way possible. To relax and be nude is to experience life to the fullest. Nudist are realistic, there are times when clothing is appropriate or necessary.

One important characteristic about nudist, they find it easy to accept others regardless of physical size, shape or body condition. Relaxation, stress relief, positive body image, and increasing self-esteem are just a few of the reasons people choose the nudist lifestyle.

What are the benefits of nude recreation?

Self-esteem is enhanced in the nudist lifestyle, where individual body shapes are accepted. Conversation with other members is easy and friendships are formed. Members report total relaxation when they are absorbing the sun all-natural.

Is nude recreation an accepted mainstream activity?

The answer to this question is a resounding YES!
As reported in USA TODAY, The Yankelovich National Travel Monitor is one of the most respected polls in the travel industry. The 2006 edition of that poll found that 15% of adult Americans would consider a resort that offers a nude recreation experience or a clothing-optional beach experience either extremely or a very desirable part of a vacation.
In the January 17, 2003 edition of The Wall St. Journal, a front page story in the Marketplace section noted that nude recreation in North America has grown to a $400 million industry. The article explained that clothes-free offerings run the gamut from upscale venues with plush townhouses and room service to rustic rural retreats, to cruises on some of the world’s most popular cruise lines.

What is an PFNR club?

PFNR clubs are wholesome and friendly. People who enjoy nude recreation distinguish between nudity and sex and keep the two in their proper perspectives. PFNR Clubs are careful about who enters their facility and if anyone seems to be there for the wrong reason, they will be asked to leave.
PFNR Clubs activities often include sports and events much like any resort. You'll enjoy swimming, walking, tennis, hiking, volleyball, cycling, themed parties, special meal events, and the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people, diverse in age, profession, and culture.

What kind of people will I find at Paradise Valley Resort or any PFNR club?

You’ll find a cross section of society, with people representing all colors, religions, occupations, body types, age groups, and income brackets. Without clothes, however, it’s less likely you’ll know a bank president from a bus driver.

Is nude recreation legal?

Nudity is legal at PFNR clubs and resorts, and PFNR is always working to educate those not familiar with Nude Recreation. The law can be a little fuzzier when it comes to nudity at beaches and public recreation areas. PFNR works to protect nude recreation in such places where there is an established tradition for sunbathing.

Will I feel self-conscious?

Most first-timers adjust to social nudity in a matter of minutes and discover it’s not nearly as big a deal as they thought it would be. Some feel self-conscious before they undress since they’re likely to be the only ones not nude.

What’s the difference between clothes-free vs. clothing-optional?

There’s a relatively minor difference between these two types of clubs. Clothing-optional clubs allow visitors to remain dressed, believing that some people take more time to adjust to social nudism. At clothes-free resorts, you’re expected to be nude, although no one expects you to disrobe until taking a tour of the facility and deciding to stay. Paradise Valley Resort is a clothing-optional resort.

Do I have to be naked all the time?

While many people prefer to go nude 24 hours a day in clubs, others find it more practical to dress in the evenings when it gets cooler, for meals, or for some sports activities.

How will I feel if I’m not in the greatest physical shape?

You’ll feel right at home. Nudist clubs are a reflection of society at large, with people of all shapes and sizes.

Do males get visibly excited?

Not often. Nudist clubs are far less sexually charged than places where bikinis, thongs, or other provocative clothing, are worn. On the rare occasion where this occurs, simply don a towel, turn over, or take a quick dip in the pool.

What about nudism and religion?

Nudists find nothing inconsistent between nude recreation and their convictions. You’ll find all faiths and people of no faith represented at nudist resorts. Most nudists of faith find that enjoying the great outdoors in their natural state draws them closer to their Creator.

What if we receive unwelcome advances?

This rarely happens. If it does, simply report it to resort management and steps will be taken to ensure it does not happen again. Everyone should feel comfortable. Behavior requiring an apology is not tolerated.

How can I make my spouse / significant other more comfortable about trying it?

It helps to understand that PFNR clubs welcome everyone, unless you violate a club rule or policy, in which case you will be asked to leave.

Will my picture be taken or my privacy compromised?

The Partnership For Nude Recreation and its clubs understand that privacy is paramount to our members. There is never any requirement to be publicly identified or consent to having one’s picture taken as a condition of membership. (Photo identification is usually required for admission to clubs, along with other measures to ensure guest security.) And just for your peace of mind, the tasteful images that appear on this website have been taken with the written permission of the subject(s) depicted.
In increasing numbers, however, our members are telling neighbors and friends about their favorite way to relax. They find it’s an idea that’s just too great to keep for themselves!
