    The biggest problem people have is with the creepers not with the regulars. I have many great picture memories also. Great to reflect back on old trips and all the fun we have.

    Now waiting on the forum for the new threads about creepy single guys and the bachelor parties. Haven't saw any troll threads lately either???

    On one of the days we were there late in the day when the hot tub was full a drone flew over and was hoovering for about 1 min. Ppl were standing up and fingering it and that made sense but me and my wife looked at each other and thought wouldn't it be more effective to finger it as you were sitting down with all the good parts under water instead of standing up and your breasts being fully exposed. Only saw it one day security was upset and waving at it to leave but tough for them to do anything. When it flew away it went down the beach past the marina so couldn't see from the hot pool where it went.

    if you have a camera out at the sexy pool (or bash) then YOU are the creeper to people who aren't in your group....regular or not. The ones YOU define as creepers aren't creepers to those in his/her own group. How do you not see this? (btw, it is also quite possible that some people in your group would prefer you follow the rule and not have a camera either but aren't saying anything).

    so, no, you have defined the problem people have incorrectly. The problem people have is with people who don't think rules apply to them and have cameras/phones out at the sexy pool. They/we just want to party drunk, uninhibited and topless and not have to think about the idiot with the camera and wonder what he/she is going to do with those pictures or have to pay attention to that INSTEAD of partying topless without inhibitions.

    We don't take a camera down to the pool and our phones are always locked in the safe but we do take a camera to patios often. It is nice to have pics of all the people that we have met over the years and none are ever posted or shown to anyone that doesn't come to TTR. That being said its too bad that almost everyone has to worry about what they do outside of work that has absolutely no affect on how they do their job. Too many easily offended people now.

    What me or my wife do outside of work can and absolutely will have an adverse effect on both of us at work especially if it is blasted all over social media. We are not easily offended at all and definitely do not care what others do. People just can’t refrain from posting shit on social media and that scares people.

    I disagree with that. Perhaps a few might, many more do not, which lends me towards the "depends" thing. We've been to Temptation 20 times since 2007, and have always had camera openly out and taking posed pics of our group, and people who drop in to do some photobombing, right in the middle of the day's fun time at the Sexy Pool. It doesn't come out during the "contests," once that became a thing. We would get requests All the time from people, "Hey, here's my email address, send us the pics of us the other day [or night], we'd love to have those!" I mean, that happened all the damn time. So, you can't tell me things like the globally-encompassing statement above, I know for a fact its incorrect.

    A chilling effect on a couple? I can buy that. On everyone? Some ladies literally live for the photo op.

    I doubt you'll ever know how many women say "no, lets just sit over here and watch them " when they see cell phones & cameras pop out EVERY time some drops their bottoms in a game.

    And honestly, since you freely admit that you like to record every activity, I'm certain you don't care.

    For some of us life is more about the experience than the evidence. Take your photos out on the beach, record your memories at the mall, but don't keep an image that could ruin someone's livelihood in a file that can be hacked.

    I would be more worried about the cameras you can't see , if people are that scared of them . Too easy to sneak a pic.

    If you're going to take pics, just be sure to get us from the good side. My left boob is bigger and perkier than my right. ;)

    We are definitely not camera shy however, in all seriousness, pics are only cool if EVERYONE is cool with it. If not, leave the camera alone.

    I think the bigger problem is what happens with those pictures vs. the pictures themselves. If people want to take a picture with the group (as long as they get Southofnormal’s left side) and everyone is cool with it, I don’t see an issue. People with nefarious intentions (and maybe some who do it unintentionally) can make them live on in infamy on the internet and social media. A quick look at trip advisor, oyster or a few other sites show quite a few people sans tops that probably don’t even know their picture was taken and posted.

    Some of us have jobs/family that would frown upon pictures like this popping up and the anonymity of the resort and being able to just relax and let loose is part of the appeal.

    I totally get that. That's happened to a friend of ours, she ended up on Tumblr. It was a great pic of her, and she looked stunning, but one of her kids friends found it. It's hard to have nice things, people always seem to mess it up being dumb. I also understand those folks whose jobs would frown on pics of, say... faux-bisexuality as tons of posed pics seem to get (elementary school teachers anyone?) get towards (guy prompting usually why) the girls with/on girls thing. I can understand the no pics at sexy pool thing... even though the new sexy pool doesn't seem to get as rowdy (by reading reports, direct experience and talking with other TTR repeaters) as it used to be. No clue why That is... since the party at Bash seems wilder than the old Patyo's parties (again, from reports, etc. as before). More nakedness at Bash now than at Patyo's before. Maybe the solution IS to have areas where pics are totally cool, and if you're in there you know (are informed) that it's a pic-friendly (as in friendly fire) zone? Or, you can take whatever pics you want at the Quiet Pool (which isn't so Quiet any longer and I'm wondering why nobody has made a fuss about that...). it's an idea.

    But, just by looking at the percentages of the initial poll, 3 out of 4 people are open with or OK with or like to take pics, at least sometimes (the "Depends" group). There are a smaller portion of the DNGAF people who just don't care, a larger but still Way the minority of the No Pics, No Way crowd, and then that 3 out of 4. So, those 3 need, or at least would like or be OK with some pics, some times.... and I'm not thinking that it's only in the guest rooms. Ah well. Another rile people up thread continues.

    It IS interesting (people are interesting), that we've got all those responses to the poll itself... but only a relative handful take 5-30 seconds to write out a comment.

    Maybe they thought the thread was only asking for a vote, not an opinion?

    I only know our experience has been that we often receive photos that A: we didn't know existed and B: would cost my wife's job if the wrong people saw it. This information is routinely a mood killer when shenanigans start around us. I wish all cameras were left in the safe and the only thing taken from TTR was memories, hazy or not.

    I totally get and agree with your concerns ,, but how are you going to stop the creeper with the 21 mp Smart phone ? . Stopping cameras is not going to work .
    I have taken pics during the foam party ,, why not ?? Coco Bongo,s was video taping a promotional video at the same time .
    So many cameras/phones/surveillance out there , there is no more privacy in public , people are kidding themselves .
