A Cocoa Beach resort goes nudist as of May 1, 2012. Paul Hodge, owner of the Fawlty Towers Motel in Cocoa Beach, Florida, has decided to allow nudists to stay at his 32 room resort that has been in operation for 24 years. The Fawlty Towers has been suffering from declining business and Hodge hopes that by turning the motel into a nude resort he’ll get some of that business back. After convincing his wife that it was a good decision and getting a lawyer to make sure he wasn’t breaking any local laws, Hodge has now turned the Fawlty Towers into a “Naturist Resort”, as explained on the motel web site:
We will promote family oriented nudism, which shall be wholesome and non-sexual. Single males must qualify to visit according to our singles policy. All members of AANR or other nudist clubs are always welcome. We offer a private, relaxing, safe, non-threatening, non-sexual, clothing optional environment where our guest can relax and feel comfortable.
The AANR = the American Association of Nude Recreation, which informed Hodge that allowing guests to go au naturel indoors would be ok with the local authorities. However, outdoors may be a different story – guests are probably better off not walking outside in their birthday suits in full view of families and kids. That will probably get them arrested for indecent exposure.
Hodge and his wife promise not to bare all themselves, but hope that maybe the bartenders might drop their tops while serving up the booze.
