Sunbirds Code of Conduct
The Sunbirds Nudist Club (the "Club") is a private organization dedicated to fostering a welcoming and enjoyable environment for nudists. This Code of Conduct (the "Code") outlines the standards of behavior expected of all members and guests of the Club. Adherence to this Code is essential to maintaining the Club's reputation and ensuring a positive experience for all participants.
Violation of this Code of Conduct may lead to suspension or termination of membership in Sunbirds. Some situations may merit a warning and suspension, but repeated or serious violations can result in immediate termination.
If you observe members or guests being inappropriate, breaking the code of conduct, or if you are offended by their behavior, we ask you to:
Immediately and discreetly, and if you are comfortable doing so, call the infraction to their attention.
If you cannot do that or are uncomfortable doing that, please inform one of the Board Members so that they can take appropriate action.
If further attention to the situation is warranted, please notify the Board via email or phone. If you would like to anonymously report any code of conduct violations, please use this form.
Please make sure the behavior is reported as soon as possible. It's difficult to correct inappropriate behavior long after the fact when details grow dim, and the situation becomes only a rumor.
Disclosure of personal information about Club members and guests to non-members is prohibited.
Distribution of Club information, including event details, locations, or related materials, to non-members is prohibited unless inviting approved guests (see “Guidelines for Inviting Guests” below).
Photographs may be taken at Club events only with the express consent of all individuals depicted and in accordance with any host-imposed restrictions.
Photos must never be posted online, even if you are the only person in the photo. Background and metadata contained in photos can expose information that should not be made public under any circumstances. Facial recognition can expose member identities.
Courteous and respectful behavior is expected of all Club members and guests.
Sunbirds is explicitly NOT a ‘lifestyle’ club or a sex club. This includes overtly sexual discussions and comments.
Sexual activity or inappropriate touching is strictly prohibited at all Club events. If it’s not yours: don’t touch.
Smoking is permitted only in designated areas and in accordance with host preferences.
Excessive intoxication through the use of alcohol is not tolerated at any Club event. Neither is the use of illegal drugs. If the host or Board members believe that you are in need of medical assistance due to drugs or drinking, they are encouraged to call 911. If this occurs, the member being treated is responsible for all costs incurred.
Nudists should always use a towel underneath them when sitting or lying down. Please bring two towels to events: one towel for sitting, and one to dry off with.
Covering one’s nether regions when approaching a food serving area is strongly encouraged.
Not that it happens often, but males, if you get an erection, don't make a big deal about it. Simply cover it discreetly or excuse yourself until it subsides. Out of respect for others, please don't bring attention to it.
Club hosts welcome guests into their homes and expect their property to be treated with respect.
Members are expected to contribute a dish when an event includes a potluck meal.
At some events, a monetary donation will be expected to cover costs incurred by the host, usually $5 per person unless otherwise specified.
Sunscreen or tanning lotion should be removed before entering the pool or hot tub.
Glass containers are prohibited in or around the pool area.
Guests should refrain from occupying unauthorized areas or entering closed rooms.
Pets are not allowed at Club events unless specifically authorized.
Avoid cliquish behavior. Mingle with new members, guests, and members you don’t know as well. The more we know each other, the stronger our Club becomes.
Clean up after yourself and be sure not to leave items behind at events. This creates extra work for the hosts and board members.
Prior notification to a member of the board is mandatory for guests to attend a function. Guests need to be pre-approved by the board.
Guests must be aware of and understand this Code of Conduct before attending.
If you have guests attending, please arrive with them or before them so that you can properly introduce them to the group.
Be sure to introduce your guests to the host(s) and all board members at the event.
Guests who have attended at least two Club functions and agree to abide by this Code may be invited to become members.
Repeated attendance at parties without becoming a member is prohibited.
The Sunbirds Nudist Club is committed to providing a safe, enjoyable, non-sexual, and inclusive environment for all members and guests. Adherence to this Code of Conduct is essential to achieving this goal. Please familiarize yourself with this Code and act accordingly.
