A naturist’s view on making music

Music

Something simple, it seems. Everyone knows what music is. Nude people also tend to like music. What I wondered about suddenly was: are there nude musicians out there?

It took a long time to find something in this area.

Rock ‘n’ roll

This was an era where some bands, mostly obscure ones, would perform in the nude. Mostly to shock and be rebels, I’m sure. It’s very hard to find imagery about those bands. Perhaps they looked something like this:

Women only?

Most of the performers I could find were women. This is remarkable in a way, because in naturism and nudism men seem to prevail. Why not then, I wonder, in music?

Is showing the nude musician’s body outside naturism more of a gimmick to attract people than to celebrate the body? I think it is.

Sex sells

That’s a given these days, and it works since several decades. That is also, for me, one of the reasons that nudity (be it explicit or implied) is now so connected to sex. Advertisement had made that happen. Lots of people are happily brainwashed into that way of thinking daily.

That clearly is the whole point. Also in music this seems to happen. Look at Miley Cyrus who has caused more than just a bit of controversy about her naked performances and appearing nude in music videos.

Real music by real people

I really wonder if we’ll ever see a movement of real people, real music-makers, who are going to perform in the nude just because it’s the best way to be. Maybe you’ve ever been to a nude beach or resort where you’ve seen a naked band perform.

I’d like to hear about it. What was the band like? Where they nudists to start with, or did they strip because of the venue?

Would you play music naked? Do you play music naked? If so, what started it? Was it the fact you’re a nudist/naturist?

  1. I’ve been at a few venues where people perform music nude including the beach and nudist resorts. The beach was the most interesting because the performance attracted textiles too. Everyone was listening and dancing instead of focusing on who was or wasn’t wearing clothes. I even think that a few people shed their clothes to enjoy the music in the sun freely.
