Wow. As a former HR manager I see 'lawsuit' ultimately written all over this one! :D

And I told my buddy from college that this was a bad idea. Seems he never picked up on the fact that is is not a way to pick up girls.

I see. Well, at least it's in Tucson, not Nome or some other chilly place.

Not for fifteen bucks an hour.

I don't see anything wrong with that. A nudist camp/resort needs an employee. $15/hr is pretty good pay. I'll apply if I were in Tucson.

At least you already know what to wear to the interview.

I used to live in Tucson--the cost of sunscreen for nudists there probably exceeds what I spend for clothes here.

Note that this posting never says you have to be nude yourself, and $15 an hour for entry-level office work is damned good. Perhaps I should move back...

Maryn, sick of rain and 48 degrees

Ah, a nudist camp. For some reason I didn't get that from the ad. I had this mental image of an office somewhere where you came to work, took off your clothes and sat in front of a computer just like any other office job except nude. I don't see anything wrong with it either, but I still think there are pitfalls to advertising a job like this.

True... all kind of weirdoes are going to comment on it, if not applying. ;) ;)

Seriously, it would be a perfect job for a retiree or student or... heck, anyone, who is into the nudist lifestyle.

Are the seats leather, vinyl, or fabric?

A nudist office would never have leather or vinyl... I think. Just in case, I'm bringing a towel from home!

No kidding!

But it also begs the question.....


Would you want to sit on a fabric covered seat knowing that someone you didn't know had been there before you, in the same state of undress?

No. I think they do have leather, most of the time. And yes, people do take a towel with them everywhere they go. It's just common courtesy.

There are so many myths about nudist camp...

It's the office work I wouldn't do for fifteen bucks an hour. I'll take my clothes off for a half-decent ale.

I don't know if David Sedaris debunks any of those myths in his book Naked (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0316777730/qid=1116949894/sr=2-4/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_4/002-0426014-3174436)but he does talk about his experience at a nudist camp and it's very funny.

Most nudist resorts and clubs encourage their membership and visitors to carry a towel for hygiene reasons, generally to sit upon.

Also, many such resorts and clubs conduct better background checks than other social clubs. Should you get past that and fail to conduct yourself in an appropriate manner at all times, most such resorts and clubs will toss you out on the first reported occurrence of misbehavior. They generally don't give you a "three strikes and you're out" opportunity.

WILL YOU GUYS STOP IT? DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THIS IS KILLING ME HERE? I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONTAIN MY JOKES MUCH LONGER AND THEY ARE NOT LIKE MY OTHER TAME ONES!!!!!

For gosh sakes really. Everytime I think about dictation and dropped pencils. ITS KILLING ME!

As for the premise of this being a nudist camp I bet they would have specified. Was there a contact method or phone number? It might be worthy of some sleuthing.

And remember, the nude look is naked.

Most nudist resorts and clubs encourage their membership and visitors to carry a towel for hygiene reasons, generally to sit upon.

Also, they understand that males do sometimes get erections, for various reasons. They usually enforces that men cover themselves with a towel if they're aroused. They would not tolerate any sexual display or suggestions. Many of these places are truly family-oriented, much like any other camps. The difference is, everyone is nude. It truly is a lifestyle.

And RT, you're right... they didn't specific that it's for a nudist resort/camp. My mistake. I just assume that when they speak of "nudist lifestyle" it's a nudist camp. It could very well be an office run by nudists...

[Slaps side of head], I thought that's what you hang the towel on!

Do I feel foolish or what? duh.

Is it just me, or is this the perfect job for dieters?


I used to live near a nudist beach, and most were a bit 'wobbly' and I always used to think I could never display it unless it was toned and tight.

Yeah....I need a naked job...that should do the trick....

The thing is, most nudists don't believe you have to look like a model to be worthy of going nude. Once you've seen a bunch of average, real, unairbrushed bodies, you stop thinking you're abnormal or substandard because you don't look like a magazine centerfold.

Well, other people are usually willing to use my keyboard after I've been eating a sandwich...

The funniest thing about it is, just as you think you look awful in the nude, there stands someone looking even more awful than you do, next to you. It does help with body image, doesn't it?

FROM POSTED JOB AD:
"easy to get along with and fairly laid back." ~~ JOB REQUIREMENTS

How laid back would you have to be? Sounds rather risque.
