Topless European Style Sunbathing Pools seen as a gimmick in Las Vegas


A number of years ago, some Las Vegas hotels decided to operate topless pools. To sound more exotic, they called them European style sunbathing pools.

We've been to 2 of them. One at Caesars and one at Mandalay Bay. Needless to say, none of them compare to nice nudist resorts.

We did a review of the Las Vegas European sunbathing pools a few years ago. Here is some of what I wrote:

"As [a reporter] writes "pool visitors regularly steal not-so-furtive glances of anything they can glimpse [meaning naked breasts]."...

The first thing you need to know is the whole purpose of those adult pools in Las Vegas... is to try to get some women to take off their tops and to be the "entertainment" for guys which will spend a lot of money on drinks and entrance fees. Margaritas for instance are $12.50. Call brand cocktails are $15.00. Entrance fees for guys are $10 to $50/day. These pools need topless women to keep the guys drinking. We were told some of the pools pay showgirls to topless sunbathe midweek when they can't get "civilians" to topless sunbathe.

...Las Vegas pools are NOT for women where it is their first time topless sunbathing in public as the guys very obviously stare and blatantly check out the topless women. They make the women feel very uncomfortable...

When we got there [Caesars] on Wednesday, the regular bathing suit pool was packed. The Venus pool was about 1/3 full. There were 4 rows of lounge chairs. The ones next to the pool were reserved for high rollers or you could rent them for $150-$250/day depending on how busy they were. They had 6 cabanas that rented for $650-1000 per day or again went to high rollers...

There were maybe 15 couples and another 25 guys with groups of 2 to 6 guys hanging around.

We sat on the lounge chairs. We looked around. Not one single woman was topless. Mary Clare commented, "this is really creepy." A pool attendant walked by and Mary Clare asked "is this really is a topless pool" to which the attendant said midweek sometimes no one goes topless all day long, and at other times a few women go topless. He said they only really have some topless women on Saturdays and Sundays.

Mary Clare told me that even though we own a nudist resort, even though she is comfortable having nude pictures of herself used on our blog and website, she feels really uncomfortable going topless there. However, since we are there to report on the Las Vegas European style sunbathing experience, she decided she will take off her bikini top. I told her she didn't have too, but she insisted to get a full flavor for their experience...

As soon as Mary Clare went topless, a woman sitting right across from us immediately took off her top too. She obviously did not want to be the only woman with bare breasts there.

Then came the next phenomenon. Guys in lounge chairs "had" to get up and walk right past Mary Clare and this other woman. And when they got in front of Mary Clare and the other woman, most slowed down and blatantly stared for a second or 2 and walked on. The other woman and her male friend left after maybe 15 minutes of her being topless.

We were there for about 3 hours and it was nonstop new guys walking by stopping and staring as if they had never seen bare breasts before in their lives. Now in all fairness, once the guys had walked by the topless women once, most didn't walk by again. They just stared from their lounge chairs.

When we left at 3pm there were maybe 20 couples and maybe 50 guys there. There was never more than 3 women at a time topless sunbathing. Most woman would take of their top and then either cover back up after being subjected to all the guys leers or they would leave shortly after going topless.

Women wearing bikinis, tops and bottoms were not subjected to the leers.

It was hot. Here at our resort, we invested in a $6000 poolside misting/cooling system. It is state of the art and our guests love it. At the Venus pool, they have the misters like at our resort, but only at the cabanas. Everyone else is treated like a second class citizen and has to suffer in the heat...

Needless to say, the experience was very unsatisfactory. If you are a woman going topless for the first time, you will feel so intimidated by all the men, you will never try it again. It is not a pleasant experience like you find at nudist resorts.

Mary Clare, said to me, she felt like a piece of meat on display for hungry dogs (the men). She would have kept her top on except to experience the European style pool for herself...

In conclusion, you can tell no one has a clue as to how to run a nice topless pool. I assume no one has ever been to a topless beach in Spain or France. If they had, they would know, just like we know, the most important thing is make the woman feel comfortable. If she doesn't, the couple will never come back. We for instance we will never try the Venus pool again unless we hear from guests that it is more women friendly.

Caesars Palaces topless pool is a phony "European style" pool as much as the Las Vegas strip is an imitation of real Venice, Paris, New York, etc."

Now a Las Vegas hotel operator admits topless pools are just a gimmick and obviously one they do not know how to properly manage.

Here's the story:

"Resorts weigh pros and cons of topless pool scene

A volatile mix of Strip debauchery — topless women and pools filled with booze-buoyed partygoers — may be running its course.

Some nightclub managers, who run the poolside dayclubs, say they may be more trouble than they’re worth.

Last summer, Metro Police arrested 11 people at the Rio’s Sapphire Pool, a topless pool run by the Sapphire strip club. The Rio ended up shutting down Sapphire Pool...

Clark County enforcement officers are sending letters to the clubs, reminding them that topless sunbathing must be separate and obstructed from other guest areas, off-limits to minors and cannot been used for contests, parties or special events while topless sunbathing is taking place.

It’s that last part that has caused the most consternation. The topless pool scene has grown to include DJs, dancing and celebrity appearances. Although they don’t call them parties, they have included headlining performers, birthday celebrations and resort anniversaries — the normal kind of fare that’s offered at nightclubs run by the likes of Pure Management, Light Group and Tao Group — which all run topless pools in town...

Light Group President Jodi Myers said one reason it decided against topless sunbathing at its new pool is because the no-party policy limits the club’s marketing. Phil Shalala, vice president of marketing at the Hard Rock, said they felt it was a gimmick that had run its course...

For the full article click here

In the comments section of this article someone innocently asked where his wife could go topless sunbathing at a nice place. Someone answeed the south of France. It just goes to show that nudism still has a long way to go if people still don't realize there are lots of nice nudist resorts in the US.

Guests of ours who work in the hotel industry in Vegas, say the topless pools are now all about the booze and not relaxing poolside. Their philosophy is get the women drunk so they go topless. Then encourage lots of guys to pay admittance and let them charge hundreds of dollars on their bar tabs.

If you're into drinking heavily and enjoy drunk screaming people, the Las Vegas pools are for you on the weekends. If however you are like most people and enjoy relaxing and having adult conversations instead of drunk talk, then I would stay away from the Las Vegas topless pools and go to a nice nudist resort instead.

Nudist Resorts and Facebook - Study shows only 6% of corporate Facebook fan pages have 2000 friends or more


We've been active on Facebook for around a year. Facebook is very important for marketing and letting people know about nude recreation and the fun of nudism.

Last year we started a Terra Cotta Inn Facebook group. This April, 2010 we switched to a Facebook Fan page for our nudist resort. It has already grown to 1147 fans in 2 months.

I just came across a study about Facebook corporate fan pages. It says only 6% of corporate fan pages have 2000 friends or more. It said the median corporate page has 150 followers.

How does the nudist market compare on Facebook to corporate fan pages in general? Here at Terra Cotta Inn, we have 1147 friends in 2 months. AANR has 2 pages on facebook. One has 702 friends, the other has 1222 friends. TNS, (The Naturist Society) has 718 friends. Clothesfree.com has 241 friends, Nudist clubhouse has 225 friends. The leader is skinbook.com Skinbook has 3951 members.

So nudism is doing OK on facebook compared to the average corporation.

But, if you compare nudist facebook pages to fun pages in general, nudism is way behind. For instance one popular facebook page called Sleeping Naked has 178,000 friends. Nudist organizations and resorts still have a long way to go in popularity on facebook compared to some sites.

Seattle sets record for not cracking 75F


Last year started a trend. Although we are located in California, the #1 home state of our guests last year for the first time was Washington. Canada was #2, and California #3.

Now we have always catered to couples on vacation. Where all other nudist resorts out west are mainly weekend getaways, we have had the guests from all over the US, Canada, England, and Australia. We are busy 7 days a week, not just Saturday nights.

This May and June we have had so many guests from Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia stay here. Much more than usual. We didn't really know why. One guest who checked in today from the Seattle area just showed me a Seattle paper clipping that Seattle has just set an all time recorded record for not cracking 75F for the year. Brrrrrrrr The last record was June 9th. They still have not cracked 75F and the article says it will be some time before they do.

Well it's time to go nude sunbathing in sunny Palm Springs, California.

So everyone in the Pacific Northwest. It's already summer. Just jump on a flight to sunny Palm Springs and enjoy the warm California sun caressing your naked soon to be tanned body. It only takes a few hours for you to reach summer weather.

With the beautiful nude sunbathing weather we've been having lately in Palm Springs, there is no reason not to vacation in sunny Palm Springs this year. Palm Springs is the sunniest city in teh US. It's summer year round here.

And we have special rates too this summer here at Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa. In June on Sunday - Thursday stay 2 nights, get $25 off. Stay 4 nights Sunday - Thursday and get $50 off.

And in July and August on Monday - Thursday nights, stay 1 night and get the 2nd at 50% off. Stay a week and get an additional $100 off our already discounted summertime rates.

Now is the perfect time for a fun, romantic, unique vacation experience.

World Naked Bike Ride Reporting from New York


This last weekend the 2nd annual World Naked Bike Ride was held in New York City.

The reporting was fairly good. Here is a review from Gothamist online magazine CLICK HERE

This year BP Oil has really shown that the world has to start weaning itself from oil. It can be done. For instance Norway is a major leader and politicians in the EU say they want 20% of their energy from alternative sources by 2020.

Sadly here in the US, the oil industry continues to lobby our politicians so that we are more oil dependent than ever.

What's nice is nudists by the fact of wearing less clothing save energy and water. So they are already green.

Palm Springs, California is one of the greenest cities in California. We recycle more waste water than any other city. About 10% of our electricity comes from windmills. We ourselves at Terra Cotta Inn convinced out city 15 years ago to start a recycling program for hotels and other businesses. Before that only homes recycled.

If Palm Springs can become greener, so can other cities.

King of the Social Media Sites - Facebook



Facebook had 42 million American users January 1, 2009. Now it has 103 million at the end of 2009. Roughly 1 out of every 3 Americans has a Facebook account.

Facebook now has more web traffic than google. That is amazing. Now with that said, many people are on facebook due to their apps and games like farmville, mafia wars, etc.

I still find google to be the best for web traffic for my resort and I would assume that is true for other nudist resorts. But, facebook is rapidly growing in my marketing of my nudist resort The Terra Cotta Inn, Palm Springs.

The best segment guests for nudist resorts is the 35+ market. They have the income and the vacation time. 20 something guests are great, but they normally do not have as much vacation time as people 35 and older. My business is not built on just the Saturday night locals and selling memberships like most nudist resorts. We need vacationers as we deliver so much extra value to our guests. we are considered the BEST VALUE nudist vacation resort in the US.

We target the vacationers from around the world. Thus, last year for example, we had more room nights booked by Canadians than we did Californians because Canadians like to stay a week or longer and most Californians like to stay for only a few nights.

I just found a report on how Facebook is growing. I thought everyone might think it interesting.

"Facebook Demographics and Statistics Report 2010 – 145% Growth in 1 Year

Posted in Social Media Marketing, Social Media Monitoring, Social Network Analysis

Key Insights:

1. Facebook’s US user base grew from 42 million to 103 million in 2009. That’s a 144.9% growth rate!
2. The 35+ demographic now represents more than 30% of the entire user base.
3. The 55+ audience grew a whopping 922.7% in 2009. [My note, the fastest growing segment]...

Click here to read the whole fascinating study

Last year I started spending more time on Facebook and it is paying off with new guests and communicating more with repeat guests.

I highly recommend all nudist businesses to get more involved with Facebook.

Social media and AANR


Social media and web 2.0 is has been a major marketing boon to the nudist world. Whether you are blogging, using twitter, facebook, myspace, nudist social media sites like skinbook, truenudists, or other social media sites, more people than ever are learning about nudist resorts.

My fellow nudist blogger, Nudiarist discusses skinbook. He is the best nudist blogger on the web and everyone should read what he writes.

He concludes "Nudists and naturists deserve a real, safe online social networking site with clear and established guidelines. It's a shame that when so many people and organizations are working so hard to make nudism and naturism more acceptable in society, Skinbook gets written up in Time magazine merely because it's trendy. Nudists and naturists deserve far better than this superficial, self-serving marketing ploy known as Skinbook." Well put nudiarist!

As some of you may know, I am the PR chair for AANR West. At least once a month, I sit in on the National AANR PR conference call headed by Susan Weaver who will probably be the next AANR president. So I know some of the social media wish lists and plans.

Speaking as AANR West pr chair, we are well aware of the need to get involved in social media. AANR West now has a facebook page at http://bit.ly/AANRWESTFBpage which I encourage everyone to join. AANR also has a facebook page as does TNS.

AANR now has it's own social media "geek squad" where people are donating their time to get us involved in social media.

Someone asked on the AANR WEST board why it took so long for AANR West to start a Facebook presence. I wrote: "This is Tom Mulhall. My wife and I own The Terra Cotta Inn nudist resort in Palm Springs. I am the administrator here although all board members have the password to this Facebook page.

People have to remember, AANR Regionals work is all done by volunteers. We all have jobs and want to do as much as possible to promote nudism and AANR. But, especially in today's economy, everyone has to work harder than ever at their jobs or for us running a nudist resort. At the end of the day, there is not a lot of hours available.

So we can't do things as quickly as we would like to. But, we do do them.

We are always looking for volunteers to help share the load as the more people volunteer to help AANR and nude recreation, the more people learn about it."

For instance it's 9:45pm and I'm still working plugging AANR and my resort, The Terra Cotta Inn. I'd love to have a myspace presence. I just don't have the time to maintain one, so I ignore it. Same with linkedin.
