Black eye for naturism and naturist resorts?

Lupin Lodge Nudist Resort Exploits Workers

    I regret this has happened to Lupin. I once spent a very long day there. It was filled with wonderful people who were open-hearted. Some in the naturist world have attacked Lupin for being so open to alternative nudist events. But this exploitation is something else entirely!
