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!
