I think the general rule for M rated sims is that if it's out of public sight it's ok.

It's hard to say anything for sure though. Usually LL doesn't even bother with X rated content openly on display in G rated sims and when they react, it's rather arbitary.

Quoting from the Knowledge Base to save typing:

Second Life's Moderate designation accommodates most of the non-adult activities common in Second Life. Dance clubs, bars, stores and malls, galleries, music venues, beaches, parks, and other spaces for socializing, creating, and learning all support a Moderate designation so long as they do not host publicly promoted adult activities or content and do not use adult search tags. Groups, events and classifieds that relate to this broad range of activities and themes generally should also be designated as Moderate.

Residents in these spaces should therefore expect to see a variety of themes and content. Stores that sell a range of content that includes some "sexy" clothing or objects can generally reside in Moderate rather than Adult regions. Dance clubs that feature "burlesque" acts can also generally reside in Moderate regions as long as they don't promote sexual conduct, for instance through pose balls (whether in "backrooms" or more visible spaces). However if any of these businesses uses adult-oriented search tags, the region may be categorized as Adult and blocked from appearing in non-Adult search.

This is explicitly different from General areas, which include the restriction:

Sexually-oriented objects such as "sex beds" or poseballs may not be located or sold in General regions.

According to the LL Official article in the Wiki, 

Adult activity on Moderate land must be conducted "behind closed doors," meaning that you must make every reasonable effort to ensure that the parcel is private. This means:

  • Allow only a group or specific individuals access to the parcel. If it is group-access only, the group must not be freely open to join.
  • Hide avatars (turn off avatar visibility) for the parcel.
  • Enclose the area behind walls or other visual barriers.

 As to public nudity without sex

Depending on context, nudity may not require an Adult rating. For example all of the following could be rated Moderate:

  • A nude beach without sexual activity.
  • Skin vendors showing a nude skin to display the product.
  • Nude art that is not sexual.
  • Strip clubs that do not use adult words in search or host sex furniture.

Depending on the context, exposed genitalia may not be considered Adult. For example:

  • Hanging out at a nude beach would be fine.
  • Walking around pants-less on the mainland could be inappropriate.

Non-sexualized depictions of nudity are Moderate NOT Adult.

OK, you've gotten some great answers!

A technical point:  Maturity rating is a region level setting, so your Homestead is either all General, or all Moderate, or all Adult.  You cannot have a parcel split off and make that a separate Adult area.  If you are the Estate owner, you can change the maturity rating of one of your regions, subject to certain policies (for example, an Adult region can't be next door to a General one.)

And another technical point:  As you say, people can cam inside houses and see all sorts of things that they might need to get out the Eye Bleach for.  However, LL has now implemented a fix for this, of sorts.  On the parcels where you don't want Peeping Toms to peep, go to About Land/Options and uncheck the box that says "avatars on this parcel can be seen by avatars on other parcels."  This won't hide your poseballs or your racks of whips and chains, but it WILL render anyone on that parcel invisible to people outside the parcel (and vice versa.)  It also hides nearby chat.

Now, a social point:  More sex takes place in suburbia than in the raunchiest red light districts.  In this, Second Life once again mimics Real Life.  Your poseballs are fine, as long as you keep 'em indoors.  You only need an Adult region if you're going to run a sex-related business...a brothel, a BDSM club, an XXX rated movie house, etc.

And yes, you could have a nude beach on your Moderate homestead region.  Just don't combine it with naughty activities.
