Wisconsin Cracks Down On Public Sex At Nude Beach
CBS ^ | April 18, 2012

Posted on 04/18/2012 4:50:52 PM PDT by SJackson

MAZOMANIE, Wis. (CBS) — To a Chicagoan, south central Wisconsin conjures images of the water parks of Wisconsin Dells, the cliffs of Devil’s Lake, the stark angles of Frank Lloyd Wright houses, and the bellowing Victorian music machines of House on the Rock.

But nude beaches?

Yes, believe it or not, they have one of those up there too. And officials have long turned a blind eye to the crowds in their birthday suits, but they’ve been drawing the line lately at public sex.

The beach in question is located on the Wisconsin River just north of the town of Mazomanie – about half an hour north of Madison.

A nudist group called the Badger Naturists uses the beach. On the Web site Friends of Mazo Beach, the group describes itself as “Couples, singles, gays, old, young, kids, fat, skinny, buff. Quite a mix. Don’t expect a Playboy pictorial. We’re mostly common Midwestern folks (who like our brats and cheese.)”

The group says it promotes “family-style nudism, where sexual preferences and harassments are not a public issue, where consumption of alcohol is controlled, where illegal activities and substances are forbidden.”

The group holds an annual Mazo Beach Nude Olympics, with an assortment of summer camp games for both adults and children such as sunflower seed spitting, balloon stomping, banana relay, and tug of war.

But some people who have been coming to the beach have apparently been participating in far less innocent recreational activity.

Officials say arrests for drug use and illicit sex at the beach spiked last year. In just nine days of surveillance, wardens arrested 42 people for illicit sex or drug possession, up from 14 in six days in 2007.

The Friends of Mazo Beach site says in no uncertain terms that such activity is not acceptable.

“You will be expected to behave just as you would at any other public beach. If you don’t, someone will likely correct you or a Ranger will arrest you,” the Web site says. “Tanning oil is for tanning, not for fun. Nudity is for fun, not sex on the beach. ‘Nuff said?”

But now, to try to curb the illicit activity, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources said Tuesday that it plans to close down huge expanses of the woods around the beach in hopes of forcing people into clear view.

The beach itself, and the access road leading to it, will remain open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. throughout the coming summer.

Nudists are not happy with the plan, but other river users say something must be done.

DNR wardens tell CBS affiliate WISC-TV that they have run into illicit sexual activity on beach property on and off for decades. Some national Web sites have brought unwanted publicity to the beach, which has drawn people from as far away as Florida who come to the property cruising for sex, WISC reported.

Your list?

I'm not sure nudity on public lands is illegal in WI, I think they use other statutes, like disturbing the peace for open carry. Drugs are obviously a different issue.

Does any person know if the problem is straight or gays sex acts occurring in the woods?

In any case, if the screwers/screwees don’t know how to recognize poison ivy, etc, may I have the Calomine lotion kiosk permit?

PLEEEZE!

Drugs?

Alcohol?

No concern about sexual preference?

Cruising for sex?

The media don't say it, but it sounds like a bunch of gays struttin' their stuff!

Every nude beach I knew of in SoCal was a homo cruising scene, which royally PO’d tourists thinking they’d get a peep show.

and the freaks want this for their kids.

How is that not a sex offense?

reminds me of the pervs who send their kids to the “no parents allowed” nude camps where you know the motto is ‘nobody goes home a virgin’

Pure perversity

I’ve never been interested enough to visit the place or float by, but I’ve not heard the gay connection. Which I suppose is irrelevant. In the heart of tick country, going naked in the brush doesn’t make a lot of sense. It is, however, a public facility. They really should define the rules one way or another. If it’s to be a public nude beach, legislate that.

Hopefully meaning air or water balloons, not the silicone style....

I lived on a beach one time. One morning I looked down from my porch and saw what appeared to be a bare male bottom. His female companion, tucked below him, seemed to be enjoying the “situation”.

I didn’t have much use for that male bottom and considering that I heard the neighbors kids starting to stir around and I knew they would be going down to the beach I considered the situation. Fortunately I had my pump action pellet gun handy. I accounted for the wind and also for the “movement” below. After careful aim and one shot things settled down a bit. At least until the fellow yelped and looked up at me. He started to cuss and shake his fist. He was shaking something else. I shot that too...

Ticks are not much of a problem in my area of the Everglades. Blood suckers tend to be skeeters allegedly large enough to rape vultures, and the usual deer flies and horse flies.

They would be up in arms angry if someone proposed to make it 18+

I’m glad I was brought up with morals. My great-grandfather was a Lutheran minister who passed his strict way of life onto my grandfather,with whom I grew up. He and my grandmother didn’t put up with bad behavior.

Sex. On a sandy beach.

I think I remember a limerick about that.

It didn't have a happy ending. Of any kind.
