All the fuss about nudity

I often wonder what it is about nudity that so many people get worked up about it. There is nothing new about nudity, people have been born nude since the beginning of mankind.When you take a shower or bath, you take your clothes off. When you have sex, you usually do that too. Everyone knows there is a naked you under your clothes, and yet when you go about and actually show it, most people react shocked, appalled and cry bloody murder, if not worse.

What’s the reason for that? Religious objections about nudity? I think that has a lot to do with it. Look at what the Christian bible says about that, when Adam and Eve ate a ‘forbidden’ apple. Suddenly they were ashamed of their naked bodies, covered themselves and got themselves kicked out of a nice place. Who declared that was the right thing to do? Freedom of speech was probably not an item in those days…

Naked Adam, naked Eve

Of course it is understandable, when mankind started shedding their hair, they had to dress up to keep themselves warm. Freezing to death is hardly the fun thing to do. But when the weather’s fine and clothes are only used to prevent people from seeing the real you…

Who hasn’t experienced a tremendously hot summer where every bit of clothing you wear is too much? I once heard someone say: “All I had on was the light.”

Who needs clothes in Africa?

People who visit saunas and nudist/naturist camps have a smarter idea about that. Why get all worked up with that shame thing that is forced onto everyone?

Don’t be afraid of your own nudity. It is normal. Natural. Natural, yes, as everyone comes into nature naked. I’ve never seen a tree that grows clothes. The whole taboo on nudity is wrong, and also accounts for a lot of the perverted things that are happening in our day and age. If people would accept the naked human body for what it is, the thrill of the ‘forbidden fruit’ would fall away. I am quite convinced of that.

There is nothing to be ashamed of, unless you choose to. But before you choose, ask yourself if you really feel the way you feel about nudity, or if it is the result of what society has pushed onto you. And be honest with yourself.
