Nudity is the ultimate test of self-acceptance. Why are we so afraid of it?

The Guardian sets the right tone with the article Nudity is the ultimate test of self-acceptance. Why are we so afraid of it? By Monica Tan. Monica is a “textile” journalist (not a natural nudist as she defines herself) who went on a “tour of the National Gallery of Australia last week, completely nude, along with 49 other art lovers.” She tells about her own experience of going nude in a public environment and about her complete change of perception her experience has created.

I love some of the sentences Monica wrote because there are truths shared by nudists: “It’s funny when you shed inhibition. You can no longer remember what it was like to care”, “being naked taught me that a partially clothed form is infinitely sexier than a nude one”, “Nudity enlightens us to the fact that human beings, truly, come in all shapes and sizes, and bodies that adhere to conventional beauty standards are as rare as Jennifer Lawrence.”

So another very good read to share with non-nudist friends and family as an ice-breaker of a sort!

Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked, and Share the Naked Love!
