There is a certain etiquette that nudist clubs have that a new member or guest may want to know about. First, it is common courtesy to RSVP to the host of the event before the event begins. One does not want to arrive intoxicated, and be sure to bring a towel and use it when you sit on furniture. Check with the host on smoking rules — if there are no publicized smoking rules, it is best to assume it is a non-smoking event and to smoke only outside. Check with the host regarding sexual activity. GNI-affiliated clubs promote non-sexual events, but not every club is affiliated with GNI. Since clubs are individually governed, rules about sexual activity may vary from club to club. Finally, be friendly and use common sense.
