The world is full of dirt and air,
That’s the reason I like to bare.
One with sky, one with earth,
As fresh today as day of my birth
Run through the woods so free
The world goes away, lets me be.
Sunlight on my body, grass in my toes
I’m one with birds, trees, and rainbows!
“One with Nature” by Anna Tasiilaq
Nudity is beautiful to me in all forms. With clothes and accessories you can make all kinds of impressions. But in the nude you can only show yourself. The beauty of nudity has little to do with looks, but much more with confidence, trust and comfort.
The naked body is one of the most appreciated motives in classic art. It is such a beautiful creation that it never has lost its attraction. The naked human body both male and female is beautiful and should be seen as so, unfortunately this gets tarnished very much by the people who wish to exploit it for personal gain and profit.
However with times changing hopefully the human form will be admired even more now and in the future. Is there anyone who think of sex looking at Greek classic art?
Why are we embarrassed by nudity ? why is it that just the idea of being naked in front of anyone else make people feel embarrassed ? Is it that we are simply conditioned by a culture that has a standing taboo with regard to nudity. You subconsciously don’t want to bring attention to yourself breaking the taboo or you don’t want to offend people who don’t want to see you that way.
Neither is a problem with a close partner, within families who don’t reinforce the taboo at home, at nude beaches, or at naturist clubs and resorts. When in an appropriate setting, people very quickly get used to nudity and aren’t embarrassed, or embarrassed by it.So why really should anyone be embarrassed by nudity ?
Then you have to look at another question: Why are so many people offended by nudity?
To be offended by the naked body it seems you would have to be offended by your own body as well. What makes being in a natural state so offensive? Is it simply because one has been trained to believe nudity is offensive? Is it because of religion? What if a person is an atheist and wants to be naked in public, should they be forced to adopt the same religious values as other people ?
There doesn’t seem to be any practical reason for nudity to be illegal, especially in hot weather or at the beach. People always say because children might see a naked man or woman – so what? Many children grow up seeing everyone naked in nudist colonies they are fine and well adjusted. Nudity does not mean sex, just someone without clothes.
Why should it be illegal for someone to be naked in their own garden on a hot day? All these anti-nudity laws seem pretty crazy to me and I really don’t understand why nudity should offend anyone. So why do so many people get offended by nudity ?
