Nipple Piercings And Old Nudist Approaches

Nipple Piercings at Nudist Resorts – What’s the difficulty?
Nipple Piercings – A friend explained about some controversy that took place at Rock Lodge this past summer which I felt was worth discussing. Everything started a few years ago when the teenager daughter of a couple seen Rock Lodge, and to several members’ dismay, she’d nipple jewelry. Rock Lodge afterward decided to apply a rule to ban this. Today the rule states, as quoted from the web site:
At present, genital and nipple jewelry are not allowed. Prior to coming at Rock Lodge, please ensure that any genital jewelry is removed and that any nipple jewelry is either removed or covered.
They let as it is tasteful.
And this past summer, over 10 people with nipple jewelry seen Rock Lodge, bringing the rule to many members’ attention. Many fought to have the rule changed, while others were totally for keeping it. People who supported the rule contended that nipple piercings don’t belong in a family-oriented nudist club; that it brings attention to regions nudists are not attempting to draw attention to, i.e. the breasts; that nipple piercings are sexual and linked with the swinger feeling (foolish).

On the other hand, proponents of change claimed that naturism is about open toleration of individuals as they are and allowing them to express themselves. As far as it drawing unwanted attention and also sexual attention, well,
Breasts aren’t sexual organs.
In the setting of Rock Lodge one is already NOT looking at another in a sexual way, hence nipple piercings don’t alter anything. The problem lies with the ogler.
Tattoos (tattooed breasts are taken) and also pasties used to cover them up also arguably draw attention, if not more focus, into a female’s breasts. Anything can draw this attention, but this goes back to #2 of not looking at someone inappropriately to begin with.
Nipple Piercings

Personally I do not believe the rule makes any sense and should be changed. For this particular group we’ve started of Young Naturists & Nudists America, we welcome everyone regardless of race, color, sexual orientation, tattoos, piercings and so forth. What’s more, Rock Lodge has mainly an older crowd – maybe some conservative folks that resent what the mad rebellious children are doing these days, with their body jewelry and loud wild parties.
Yet nipple piercings have become a lot more common nowadays among young folks, and I’ve a couple friends who have them who might say, “Rock Lodge is fine, BUT what’s with this stupid rule?” I believe the club would do better to cut out a rule that would exclude or discourage younger people from joining, those who had keep the area alive. What does one think, readers? Would such piercings worry you as a naturist? Or would you be turned off by a club that forbid them?
P.S. Susan Weaver, the president of AANR, has her nipples pierced. If she visited Rock Lodge would they dare ask her to take them out/cover them?

UPDATE: After some argument, Rock Lodge changed their policy (in 2011 or 2012) and nipple piercings are now permitted as of this club. (Genital piercings, nonetheless, are still prohibited. This really is a familiar policy among and additionally should be changed!)
(*BUT- in spite of my semi-severe view on this particular problem here, Rock Lodge is however a very wonderful area in the northern woods of NJ, and if you have never been you should go! The folks are also very nice and friendly- what you’d expect in a relaxing, family-oriented area.
