Younger and darker
Based on no personal experience whatsoever, I figured that the primary market for nude recreation is, well, me: an old more-or-less white guy. This notion has been continually reinforced by endless discussions on message boards of the ongoing failure to attract a younger and/or more ethnically-diverse clientele at the parks and resorts.
Color me wrong on all counts:
15% of adults consider a resort that offers a nude recreation experience extremely desirable;
Significant differences stand out with Echo-Boomers and Xers interest in nude recreation overtaking that of the Boomers and Matures. The percentage of adults who consider a nude recreation experience extremely/very desirable include:
Non-whites (28%) and African Americans (30%) find nude recreation experiences more desirable than their white counterparts (13%).
I should point out here that I have two children, a very early Echo-Boomer and one of the last of the Xers, and both of them would be horrified at such a thing.Posted at 10:01 AM to Birthday Suitable
