I read somewhere (sorry, lost the source) that public nudity would create problems because people are so curious about it. Most of them won’t admit that, but if you watch videos of e.g. a World Naked Bike Ride or a public skinny dipping event, you’ll find that not many dressed people turn away from the nude folks. On the contrary, a whole lot of ogling is going on:
So where does this idea come from that nudity triggers curiosity? I think it’s because of clothes and most people not being used to all things nude. When you see someone in clothes you have no idea who is beneath them. There’s a secret, a puzzle, something unknown. And it’s in the nature of the people-beast to unravel such secrets – they want to get to the bottom of someone, look through their clothesWell, a nudist takes that hurdle away.
Now, be honest. Look at the picture below and then tell me which side is the greatest source of curiosity, left or right?
Left: you’ll just keep staring if something more will show.
Right: one look and you’ve seen it all.
So if you don’t want to be led into temptation, nudism / naturism might be the way to go…
