A month-long rainforest sex party at a notable Queensland nudist resort is a recipe for disaster that could attract sexual predators, prominent naturalists say.
The White Cockatoo Resort in Port Douglas has announced it will hold an
adults-only month of hedonism in March next year in a bid to increase dwindling tourist numbers.
The resort — once billed as the nation's top destination for swingers — is close to being booked out, according to owner Tony Fox.
nudists, who have described the planned romp as debauched , fear sexual predators will be enticed out of the woodwork by the throng of naked flesh.
The resort is asking for trouble — once these things start it's very becomes very
difficult to draw the lines about what's acceptable, Lindsay Parkyns, president of the Australian Nudist Federation, told ninemsn: This is going to fly in the face of years for campaigning . We try to get beaches to be clothes optional but
unfortunately that attracts the wrong sort of people — particularly single guys looking for sex — and [the resort's party] will keep reinforcing that problem.
Mr Fox, owner of the White Cockatoo Resort, said next year's event had nothing
to do with the prudie nudies and described their criticism as penis envy. The fact that it is almost fully booked out is proof there is a desire for a product like this.
