I have been asked via email and also at seminars about crime statistics in nudist communities, nudist resorts and family practiced nudism within the household. In the statistics listed below sexual assault is a violent crime, however it has been separated from “violent crime” to show more of a break down and accuracy of the different type crimes.
Violent crime (assault): .02% These were crimes committed at a resort or within a community. All participates of the crime were nudists.
Sexual Assault (rape): .01% Within the nudist community there has only been one rape reported/filed in a nudist community or resort. This reported occurred at a resort in Greece. The man who committed the rape was not a nudist; he worked at the resort at the front counter (check-in counter). During the investigation, it was discovered the man was wanted for attempted rape in another city.
Sexual Assault (inappropriate touching): .03% All of these acts were committed by people who were able to get through “security” checks. All of the criminals (yes, all were prosecuted) admitted the only reason they were at the resort or beach was to “pick up” a woman. In one instance, the man beat a woman, claiming she was his wife. The woman was not his wife. The man later was confined to a institution for evaluation and treatment.
Theft: 1% This is the highest of any crime committed in the nudist communities. However, in comparison to the national average, the one percent equates to .002% of the national average. The crime rate for theft does not even register on the national scale.
I hope, you understand what these numbers represent, how minuet these statistics generate in the national average. The numbers listed above prove, without a doubt, nudity does not encourage crime of anytime.
