Should erections be hidden? (See opposing views below first)

Erections are inappropriate at nudist resorts and beaches, but tolerated if brief and not intentional. It is expected that if it does happen, just follow the normal procedures, cover it with a towel that you should always have with you or lie face down or jump in the pool or sea. There is a statement on the AANR (American Association for Nude Recreation) FAQ page -- "Do males get visibly excited?" The answer is, "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." Erections at a nude beach or nudist setting should be covered up to make sure non-nudists know for sure that what we are doing is not sexual. Many bodily functions are also natural like burping and passing gas, but we try to control it out of respect for others who might be offended.
