That is what naturists do.
And we’re good at it.
No need to pretend we’re prettier than we are, because we bare all, show all. And if ‘stuff’ hangs down, we let it hang the way stuff tends to do.
The past months of mostly working from home have often shown me time and again (as in made me feel) that being clothes-free (not having the body-prison around) is awesome. I knew this. I have known this for a long time. But being aware of that, again, is fantastic, I think.
Getting a job done is great. Doing it without clothes is better. We all know that. Nothing presses against you, nothing ties off the blood flow.
Just because we can let it all hang out.
When I had the idea for this post, I also thought of animals. They don’t do clothes. They let it all hang out as well, and they’re none the worse off for it. For them it’s normal. As it is for us.
I pity the people who are so used to being locked into their fabric prisons that the thought of getting out scares them.
Nipples. The dangerous body parts.
Nipples are difficult and dangerous, or so it seems. Even more so than skilled karate hands and tae-kwon-do feet.
Nipples – let me rephrase that – female nipples are so dangerous that they need to be blurred on ‘regular’ television and in most media.
What is wrong with them?
Recently I listened to a podcast of the Naturist Living Show about breasts and nipples. The things I heard there were astounding…
In that show Stéphane talked about a plastic surgeon that corrected breasts, either to enlarge them or to make them smaller, but also how a woman was changed into a man. The odd thing, he said, was that – when the patient was still a woman, her nipples were blurred. After the procedure of removing the breast tissue was completed (note that this was still the same person but now considered a man), the nipples were shown on television without any form of censorship. The very same nipples! Talk about hypocrisy…
Free the nipple.
It’s because of this idiocy (the only word that fits the bill) that I support movements like Free the Nipple.
Everyone has a body. A body is natural. Why should specific, tiny parts of the female body be regarded as dangerous, illegal, immoral or otherwise be put in a bad light?
Free the nipple. Free the body. Every body.
