Genitals are part of our bodies. Blurring or hiding them is recognizing they are taboo and putting an emphasis on their sexual attributes. Eyes will naturally go to what is concealed, and actually reinforce the sentiment genitals are bad to view. A nudist recognizes the whole body as one with no shame or no taboo part.
When I see a nudist pic, I see the human being in his/her entirety, not his/her genitals.
Now, some pics are taken to emphasize the genitals, like putting them, legs wide spread, in front of the camera, this could be considered as exhibitionism by some, but this remains a minority IMHO.
Nudism and exhibitionism are two different things and what differentiate them is the arousal that exists with exhibitionism that does not with nudism. An exhibitionist shows genitals (puts them on display shall I say) for sexual arousal, a nudist doesn’t show genitals, he/she’s just naked for his/her own well-being.
Do you have to have your genitals visible to prove you’re a nudist? Yes! A nudist is naked, and genitals are a “normal and clean” part of his/her body.
In 140 characters? A nudist does not conceal any part of his/her body. He/she’s at ease with his/her entire body. Why hiding what is natural?
I came across a Tweet today and had to respond via this Blog as I am restricted to 140 characters on Twitter.
This Tweet came from a Naturist Group stating that true nudists don’t have to post pics of their genitals to prove they are nudists.
I don’t know about you but I am certainly getting mixed signals in the online world of naturism. Certain Blogs I follow state that we should not be ashamed of who we are and to embrace our nakedness and dismiss any true nudist/naturists that cut off their heads in photos. Many would consider this more exhibitionistic than just showing full body pictures.
Is there a need for me to show myself fully naked and exposed? If it is in context to what I am blogging or tweeting, than why not add a photo? Would my picture be better if I had my legs crossed…
