Third or fourth post. I have a problem I need help with! I' in North Queensland, Australia and yesterday my wife and I went to our favourite CO beach. While we were out swimming a man came up and camped down close to where we were. When we came out he was very friendly, no problem, however while my wife and I were sunning ourselfs he lay facing us and masterbated. After a while he went down to the sea and washed his hands and groin. My wife did not notice as she sun's herself with her eyes closed. When we got home I told her about this and she answered "Why did you not tell me, so I could have laughed at him?" As it was we left shortly afterwards.
How do others deel with these instances, this was the first such encounter in a year of naturist activity.
That's bad news. It only takes one pervert to spoil a beautiful day. If it were practical to do so (I realize that you may have been in quite a remote area), it would have been appropriate to call the police.
Your wife's after-the-fact impulse to just laugh it him would have been another effective way to handle the situation. Few things deflate the manly ego more than just being laughed at.
But that was hindsight. You were in a difficult situation. If there were others around, you might have banded together and run him off. However, it sounds as though you were alone. You can't possibly be faulted for having elected to avoid subjecting your wife to a view of the man's activities.
The good news is that this sort of thing is quite rare. Unless that beach is getting a reputation for sexual activities, you may go there for years without ever encountering that sort of thing again.
