Nudists chase down naked man with Camera on Maslin Beach

The Maslin Beach, Australia's first official nudist beach became a controversial spot a couple of months ago when an unknown person was accused of indecent filming. The incident reportedly happened on December 21, 2014 where a person said to be in his 40s or 50s, only wearing an Akubra hat, was seen placing his esky to face other un-clothed people on the nudist section of the beach.

It has been said that a woman caught a glimpse of the wooden stand kept inside the esky with a video camera set to film through openings. This act was opposed by other nudists citing privacy concerns. The man was then observed moving down the beach positioning his camera to another unclad couple.
The unknown man garnered a lot of attention from passersby, who chased him down the beach and made a citizen arrest until the law enforcement agency took control over the situation. The police officials that took charge later said that there was insufficient evidence to prove that the person concerned was filming. The camera was thoroughly examined and there was no evidence found to prove the charges against him.

In 1975, the southern section of the Maslin beach was declared as the first official nudist beach in the country. Despite the fact that there are a lot of people looking to explore the nudist culture, a lot of people hesitate to experience it citing privacy concerns. Nudists are friendly people and any attempt to violate this privacy is dealt with seriously. If they happen to observe something wrong, they would certainly poliask them not to film without permission.
If such people continue to create nuisance and disturb general proceedings at that particular place, the next resort would be to get in touch with the local law enforcement agencies and make sure everything continues in a smooth manner. There have been a lot of misconceptions pertaining to people that follow the nudist lifestyle. While some are under the impression that these individuals are obsessed with nudity, naturists beg to differ on this.

Nudists claim to believe in the idea of equality which is free from racial or regional barriers. They also believe that only perverts and undesirables indulge in such kind of activities that cause inconvenience to the general public. It has also been said that there are heavy penalties for indecent filming which includes $10,000 or 2 years of imprisonment. On the other hand, the penalties involving children are much more severe with the culprit having to face a sentence of up to 12 years in prison.
