A Clarification Regarding Advertising

Dear AANR members and friends,

As Executive Director for AANR, I want to thank you for your messages this morning in support of AANR President John Kinman. Several of you asked a very good question about the advertisement for condominiums which appears in the E-Bulletin. I appreciate this opportunity to clarify a key difference for us. The ad in the E-Bulletin is for a privately rented condo by an AANR member at Paradise Lakes.

In our public communications we have been very, very clear that our problem is not with individual residents and members of the club–many of whom are just as frustrated by the turn in the direction of the club as we are. Our disagreement is with ownership over their marketing practices but not with those who still wish to remain members in good standing. We have observed the same policy with Caliente members, which is why you will still find advertisements for individual townhouse rentals, etc. in The Bulletin and E-Bulletin from time to time. President Kinman’s full message explains this also.

We realize that it is still possible for visitors to have a positive experience but we cannot allow marketing or activities (even when confined to select events or weekends) by the ownership or management that sexualize the nude recreation experience.

Thanks again for supporting our principles and standards and for being faithful, sharp-eyed readers of the E-Bulletin.

Erich E. Schuttauf, Esq.

AANR Executive Director

    I understand the ad was paid for by an indivual (probably an AANR member) and not the resort itself. Still anyone who is not aware of the recent changes at PL could easily assume that they were renting at an AANR club and expect a AANR family-type experience. They could be very disappointed and question AANR’s credibility for leading them to a resort that AANR knows does not live up to AANR standards.

    Also, why should AANR members (and maybe media outlets) consider AANR to be a credible voice when it accepts advertising (without any disclaimer)for a resort that clearly violates AANR standards.

    These ads risk putting good AANR members in the same bad position as the unfortunate seller who wants out of a sex resort.

    I appreciate AANR wanting to help those folks, but this is not the way. Surely there are plenty of ways for them to advertise in publications catering to people who want to live in a place like that. AANR is the wrong audience for these ads.

    At the very, very least, a clear, bold disclaimer should be included with ads from places like these resorts.
