Nudity is the ultimate freedom. It is the most poignant way to embrace yourself and eliminate any shame. Unfortunately, my opinion on naked liberation is not universal.
A public park near the French capital Paris has recently opened an area for nudists.The site, as large as a football pitch, will be open until 15 October in the Bois de Vincennes, east of the city, as part of a temporary experiment. Officials say no exhibitionism or voyeurism will be tolerated. A charter of “good behaviour” will be displayed.
“This is part of our open-minded vision for the use of Parisian public spaces,” says Penelope Komites, a deputy mayor in charge of the parks.
Signs will inform visitors about the space for nudists or naturists. It will be open between 8:00 and 19:30 near the park’s bird reserve.Those who support the move say that, in a country with numerous clothes-free beaches and holiday camps, Paris should also be a draw for naturists.
“It’s a true joy, it’s one more freedom for naturists,” Julien Claude-Penegry of the Paris Naturists Association told AFP news agency.”It shows the city’s broad-mindedness and will help change people’s attitudes toward nudity, toward our values and our respect for nature,” he said, estimating that thousands of people could use the site.
But the idea has also faced criticism. When it was first announced, last year one centrist politician called it “crazy”.Parisians already have one public pool where they can swim naked three times a week.Humans are just meant to be naked. It’s healthy to be naked. Nudity is our natural state.
I say let’s use the words of the U2 front man Bono and reinterpret his words from 1st January 1990 when he said: “The only limits are the limits of our imagination dream up the kind of world we want to live in”
Naturism is a lifestyle that men,women and children can enjoy without any hindrance or sexual attitudes. Bringing children up in such an environment, with wholesome, honest and open body attitudes leads to better sexual health outcomes for young people, fewer body image disorders, and more sensible attitudes to life. Prudery, not openness or nudity, harms children.
It can liberate your mind and body from outdated victorian prejudices and free you from the stress of modern life. Living a naked lifestyle can be rewarding and spiritually calming helping you to relax and enjoy the natural elements in nature.
