We are taking our 3 kids on a cruise in January to the Eastern Carribean. St. Thomas/St.John, St. Maarten, and Nassau are our ports of call.
I would really rather not expose my children to huge amounts of nudity. Is it everywhere? Are there beaches with less nudity than others?

I have not heard of nudity in Nassau and St Thomas. In St Maarten the French side of the island has nudity, the Dutch side doesn't.

Dang... when I read the title of the discussion, I thought you were going to tell us where to find all the nudity...

CF is correct... On St Maarten you have to taxi to the other side of the island to find a nude beach. But even on th enude beaches, it isn't like everyone was flaunting nudity...

I would not be too concerned...

Leaving Key West we had a Nude Catamaran sailing beside us. Only nudity I have seen was topless on Martinique, and they should not have been if you know what I mean.

It is not that common, and only seems to be acceptable on the French Islands. You will not see it in US Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, British Virgin Islands, or the Dutch Islands.

No Worries

Just stay away from Orient Beach and you'll be fine.

I agree, the only nudity we've every seen n the Caribbean is St. Martin on the French side and in Martinique. In St. Martin we did the Orient Beach excurions on the Disney Cruise Line, saw maybe 4 nude people, no biggie.
