Nipple Piercings And Old Naturist Approaches

Nipple Piercings at Nudist Resorts – What’s the difficulty?
Nipple Piercings – A friend said about some controversy that occurred at Rock Lodge this past summer which I felt was worth discussing. Everything started a few years past when the adolescent daughter of a couple seen Rock Lodge, and to several members’ dismay, she’d nipple jewelry. Rock Lodge then determined to implement a rule to ban this. At the moment the rule states, as quoted from the website:
At present, genital and nipple jewelry will not be permitted. Prior to arrival at Rock Lodge, please ensure that any genital jewelry is removed and that any nipple jewelry is either removed or covered.
They enable other jewelry so long as it’s tasteful.
And this past summer, over 10 individuals with nipple jewelry seen Rock Lodge, bringing the rule to many members’ attention. Many of them fought to have the rule changed, while others were entirely for keeping it. Those who supported the rule contended that nipple piercings don’t fit in a family-oriented nudist club; that it attracts attention to regions nudists aren’t trying to attract attention to, i.e. the breasts; that nipple piercings are sexual and linked with the swinger feeling (idiotic).
Nipple Piercing and Jewelry
On the other hand, proponents of change argued that naturism is about open toleration of folks as they are and allowing them to express themselves. As far as it attracting unwanted attention as well as 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, so nipple piercings do not change anything. The issue lies with the ogler.

Tats (tattooed breasts are taken) and also pasties used to cover them up also arguably draw attention, or even more attention, to some female’s breasts. Anything can attract this focus, but this goes back to #2 of not looking at someone inappropriately to begin with.
Nipple Piercings
Personally I do not think 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, colour, sexual orientation, tats, piercings and so on. What’s more, Rock Lodge has mainly an older crowd – perhaps some conservative folks that resent what the crazy rebellious youngsters are doing these days, with their body jewelry and loud outrageous parties.
Yet nipple piercings have become a lot more common nowadays among young people, and I’ve a few buddies who’ve them who might say, “Rock Lodge is fine, BUT what is with this stupid rule?” I believe the team would do better to cut out a rule that would exclude or discourage younger people from joining, those who had keep the place alive. What does one think, readers? Would such piercings worry you as a naturist? Or would be turned off by a club that prohibit them?
P.S. Susan Weaver, the president of AANR, has her nipples pierced. If she seen Rock Lodge would they dare ask her to take them out/cover them?

UPDATE: After , Rock Lodge changed their policy (in 2011 or 2012) and nipple piercings at the moment are permitted at this club. (Genital piercings, however, are still prohibited. This is a typical policy among naturist clubs and also should be changed!)
(*BUT- in spite of my semi-harsh opinion on this problem here, Rock Lodge is however a really wonderful area in the northern woods of NJ, and if you’ve never been you should go! The individuals are also rather nice and friendly- what you’d expect in a relaxing, family-oriented area.
