    No pictures were allowed the 1st year we went, which we think helped the shows. Pictures were being taken over New Years in the Alternative Bar where the shows were held during Nice Shoes construction. In todays world your picture can end up all over the net!! Don't know about everyone else but we could do without that.

    What contests was going on while pics were being taken. Anything that had nudity was the only things that was no pics in the past.

    When we made it to the lingere contest last Feb, there were a bazillion flashes going off during the event from start (when Alejandra came out topless) to finish.

    Didn't think much of it, even snapped a few on my phone.

    they've relaxed the rules to make people feel more included.... we found that out when the anything goes contest allowed people to stay that didn't want to participate.

    It was annoying as hell because most of them were on our team

    Oh, I'm not liking this! Anything goes was the most surreal experience for me last April. I was a BBG virgin & the team captain for our side. Little did I know...the fact that it only lives in my memory & no one has pictures is perfect. I loved seeing the non-participators bashfully head out. As they should. Sounds like there are going to be a lot of wild people vacationing at TTR this April. Hopefully "The Quest" is as cool as last year! :thumbsup:

    i was their in the begiining of jan and if it wasnt for my friends enforcing the no picture rule(thanks tim and rob), nothing would have been done about it!!my girlfriend is very conscience about removing her top because of fear where these pics may end up..if there was something enforced to protect the people involved i agree that we would all have a more relaxed and open vacation.. i am guilty of taking pics of events at bbg but also have the respect the the parties involved before i do so... in my opinion if bbg were to enforce a no pic rule when events take place it would allow a more care free and enjoyable enviroment for guests to participate in. i love my pics but if it means that guests would be willing to let loose a little more not having camera's around than im all for it..

    Lalo used to close up the old Nice Shoes! That was great since on my first anything goes. Anything went. I ended up stripping butt naked and winning the womens legs contest with the help of my female buddy.

    Funny thing was one lady left complaining because she was appalled at my actions with another girl. Oh well.

    They also had a biggest willy part where I held two "members" and judged them for size.

    Don't think I want those Pix on XTube

    Krissy :shock:

    it's respect ... and we have to all stand up as a group when we're there and say NO.

    I didn't care but I know that it bothered some people so that's when it bothers me. I'd rather let people in that won't participate than the creapy ones that are taking pics....

    Nat won the best legs contest the first time we were there but I don't think she would have done it if there were flashes going off all over the place

    I've always said

    As it aspires to become Desire-lite, Temptations should adopt a "no cameras anywhere" policy like their big sister down the beach. I don't think cameras are allowed at the very successful Hedo resorts. Why? Because you can be hedonistic without the threat of ending up all over the Internet. Sounds more tempting to me....

    I totally disagree, this is temtations, not Desire and we charish our pictures to remember our journeys in life. We take pictures to enjoy what has been a really enjoyable experience. I have never seen any pictures posted on the web. We love the memories and it is not like the nude resorts. It is all fun and we do not share pictures without consent.

    I love my pictures from the resort.
    We were looking at them last night and laughing our asses off!

    I was pretty careful about the photos I took around the pool and tried not to get topless people in the background. I know that everyone else is probably not as courteous.

    To my knowledge there are no photos taken of me that I did not know were being taken, and nothing I'd not want posted has ever ended up on the internet. I know the photos exist, but luckily the parties that have them have all been courteous enough to share them with those involved, and no one else. Again, this is "that I know of".

    I know that the first night we were there, there were guys taking shots from the floor, of us in the cage. My hubby put a stop to it and that was the end of it.

    I know for a fact that if "peeping Tom" type photos were taken, then I might feel differently about whether or not cameras should be allowed at the resort. But I am a picture person and an avid scrapbooker. I'd be lost without my camera, and I cherish the photos from our vacation! They bring back so many great memories!!!

    Hopefully a few creeps won't ruin for the rest of us!

    We have made friends at BBG who were extremely courteous not to post pics that would have made us uncomfortable. But everyone is not as nice as Don and Bethy and our friends. It does place our spouses into an "enforcement" scenario which, how long will it take before the vigilante justice turns physical? We all know the staff does not enforce much. It was just my two cents, but as a concept resort, why not embrace the whole concept? I don't mean nudity or swinging, but with the racy atmosphere and naughty games, etc, I think a no camera policy would be more appropriate. Liv

    We have always taken lots of pics while at BBG especially around the sexy pool. We have never taken pictures of the shows at night if they were too revealing. Our photos have never been added to online sites or shown to others outside of close friends. We seperate our pics so that there are two sets. Those that we share with others and a set that only we see. We occasionally pull these photos up just to remember our trips and remind us of why we love this place. I'm sure from some of the lurkers we have seen there that our pics (some inappropiate) have shown up somewhere. We still enjoy the atmosphere and will continue going back. We do hope we can continue to takes pics for our own use. We would never post pics that would make others uncomfortable.

    I read posts like these every couple of months. It is just my opinion that having a no camera policy at Temptations would not prevent pictures from ending up on the internet. With technology as it is, concerns about pictures on the internet should not be the point and shoot cameras that we all bring on vacation. Experience has shown over and over again that it is not the normal visitor to TTR posting provocative pictures. If someone wants to take pictures of nude people bad enough they will get them. After all the years of being on this site and visiting BBG the only people I have heard of who had REAL problems because of pictures were a couple that posted their own pictures.

    If you take your clothes off someone will take your picture. If you lose sleep over this issue then don't take your clothes off. My wife has been known to lose articles of clothing during different resort activities. I am sure there are photographs of her floating around. It is highly doubtful and odds are we (or family/friends) will never come upon those pictures. When we do I suspect they will be slightly out of focus, grainy and just one more picture of a drunk (nice looking) 40+ woman having a good time.

    I am always reminding her, “For gosh sakes at least wear your sunglasses and hat.”
