Murtle - I had to laugh this morning whilst reading your comments on a AN thread where we have talked about people who frequent normal beaches pre-judging others unlike those who use AN who don't prejudge that you actually have pre-judged me and decided I am North American as nothing could be further from the truth as I am English born and bred. :) :) :) I do get your point though about your 'mind set' changes as you get older but my observations were based on my experiences of numerous nudist beaches in Europe when as a younger person in the 80s we tended to be surrounded by people of the same age (yes there were also older ones there) compared with recent experiences where there seem a lot less younger people.
Falcon, you speak much sense but I don't agree that the youngsters are bowing out. I suspect it may always have been the case in North America but it certainly isn't (and never has been) in Europe. We are (mostly) less averse to nudity and sex than you are in America.
