    Let's just see how tilted the approval/disapproval landscape is on pictures at Temptation, if y'all don't mind.

    I am thinking that the "depends" is going to have way more than the ends of the scale, but this is scientific method polling. Ouch... I think I just sprained my brain, putting scientific method and polling in a row like that.

    the issue isn't pictures. the issue is cameras and pictures at the sexy pool and Bash.

    I don't think the issue is just people taking pictures but rather what they do with the pictures they took. Many who visit TTR are professionals or in a position where the public posting of their fun may not be interpreted correctly. Sadly we can't be sure that anyone who uses their camera at TTR will be doing so for their own enjoyment. We ran the Flickr site for a number of years where people could post their pics and have them be password protected. I would constantly get requests, all of which were turned down, to share the passwords. The idea behind the site was that people could selectively share pics with others who visited TTR at the same time. There were a lot of people who just wanted to see pics of TTR style fun which quite often meant topless or more. The concept of privacy and fun can be a difficult one to maintain.

    Here’s my thing.. If you’re taking pictures in an area where there is no chance anyone else will be caught in the shot, by all means.

    We will usually take pictures before dinner in front of the quiet pool, or in the room/hallways after the girls get all dolled up..

    That said, we don’t appreciate cameras by the sexy pool at all. Regardless if you don’t intend to get anyone else in the shot, after about 10 drinks, you as with everyone else in the pool will have their gaurd down.

    Then when you land on the way home you’re apt to find yourself a picture you don’t want to be in online.

    Snap those public pics with your brain if you can. The memories will becone even better than the pictures with age anyway!

    The issue is not the pictures of themselves it is including others in their pictures and posting them on this site or on facebook without consent. Like Chinos says what goes on in Cancun lives on facebook. Since we can't fix stupid, guidelines are sometime required hahah
    cheers to all

    My poll, my issue definition. I'll get there. Maybe we'll all learn something about other people's perspective, eh?

    Yep, I get that. I'm wondering if there is a"Happy" medium, or if it is just a lost cause since there are that smattering of idiots out there who act like the turd in the punchbowl.

    I don't understand why people feel the need to post everything on social media. I have friends that ask me to show them pictures of TTR and I tell them those pitures are for my eyes only and if they want to see they will have to go there.

    no, there is no happy medium when it comes to cameras at the sexy pool and Bash....but there are unlimited opportunities to take pics that don't involve the Sexy pool or Bash or making other people FEEL inhibited....just do that. it doesn't matter if someone says they won't do anything with the pictures. no one outside their little group knows that. Camera at those two locations will have a negative affect on MANY women's exhibition level and raise inhibitions. (honestly that's way more important than the odd need some have to have pics of every moment and encounter)
    if you want TTR to turn into just another boring ass resort where only a handful of women feel uninhibited enough to go topless (or more) than just let people have their cameras or phones out at the sexy pool...that's all it will take.

    For myself, I don't care one way or another if someone has a pic of me. My wife is another story. Though she has no problem being naked in a crowd of people with whom she feels comfortable, she doesn't want her pics on the 'net - or else I'd be posting them here.

    Clearly "it depends" was going to win this one. Cause that's basically how it is and the offical "rule" posted on TTR's website is ambiguous as hell. My most basic interpretation is: No pictures/video around the sexy pool, and no pictures on specific (unspecified) theme nights. <- this is basically no problem for me, how I already operate and I completely understand.

    However, IMO it isn't clear at all, and security would probably have zero ability to know how to properly enforce this.

    When I say it isn't clear, I mean:
    1. It's states no pictures. BUT it doesn't say no phones. Someone could have their phone and say they are just checking facebook, but really they are sneaking pics.
    2. What is officially the area around the sexy pool defined as. Can I take pictures around the premier deck/bar facing away from the sexy pool?
    3. Why just the sexy pool? I can take pictures around the quiet pool and that's OK...I know none of you go there, but for the record people are just as topless there.

    Obviously this is a near impossibility to solve, and everyone has a different opinion. I would hate to go on vacations and basically have no pictures. For my first two trips to TTR, I didn't want to be "that guy", and the camera essentially stayed in the room. That was a bummer after the trip was over though. Since then I have gotten better at how and when to take pictures, and I never have had anyone say anything negative to me, and I have never compromised anyone.

    Pictures posted on this forum, can be seen by anyone (if you aren't private). So all the pictures under my profile are PG rated(expect one), and all the people that are in them are actual friends that don't have a problem with what I posted.

    Pictures on facebook are slightly different if you think about it. If you were captured in a background picture on FB, it would have to already conform to the no nudity standards, and there really isn't a way anyone could see it, if I didn't know you. My profile is set to private, so my pictures are all private, you would need to be a friend of mine (which I only accept people I know) to see the pictures. So that risk of someone's employer or prude family member coming across you on the internet in the background of one of my PG-13 pictures is impossible.

    I also use a regular tough camera with a flip-up screen. IMO this allows people to know I am not just taking pictures around the pool that could go strait to the internet. I am literally going to have to wait until the trip is over, go home, download them on to my PC, edit them, then make an album. This allows me to assure I am not accidentally hitting the internet with anything that shouldn't make it's way there

    We like taking photos of mainly just us. Especially dressed up. We also try to take generic "oh hey we went on vacation" photos you know for family and friends haha. We are for photos as long as people are respectful about it and aren't perving out of eye site just to capture photos.

    I remember years ago when we took hundreds of pictures at the sexy pool. Our group always had a camera going. We would then send them all to one person in the group that would put them all on one CD and make copies for everyone in the group. Ah.. the good old days... none of the picture ever ended up on the internet.... but I have at least 6 years of cds with at least 500 pictures per year that we can go back and look at and remember the fun times....

    Pictures were never a problem till one year a couple form months posted on here they were coming for the first time and were going to tear it up! And they did. They had a great and wild time. And of course under the old philosophy lots of pictures were taken. Everything was fine till her soon to be ex-husband found some of the pictures online and took them to court with him. :(

    Now no pictures for anyone. :(

    But hey... in 20 years when my memory doesn't work so well I can always pull out those old cds and relive the good old days.... :)
