I was having my morning coffee, after my workout, naked as every day, and this idea came to me: what would happen if nudity was completely legal everywhere? I mean what would happen if anybody can chose to be nude to go shopping, go to the office, or go to the beach? The first thought that came to me was that it would just be fantastic! No need to think about what to wear to go out in the morning. No need to think about what people would think if they see you nude. No need to think about where to go on holiday, as all places would be nude friendly.
But of course, for us nudists, the world would be just this: a fantastic liberated world from the constraints of clothing, a world of free choice in which we could chose to stay nude without any risk of legal retaliation. For textiles, it may be a different world, as many textiles do not understand nudity and see it as a threat. This reminds me of a scene I witnessed last holiday. I was at the nude beach, just at the limit of the textile beach. I was not the first nudist when coming from the textile side, but almost. People are used to walk on the sea side, and a couple with a 10-year old kid, textiles, was walking in the direction of the nude beach. Suddenly, the mother realizes that people ahead of them are naked. She immediately puts her hands in the front of her kid’s eye and horrified turn around! A great way to learn body shame! Nevertheless, seeing people naked in the street would surely be stressful for a lot of people.
At the beginning, this would be strange, but slowly, people will get used to it. People will stop comparing sex’s length or boobs’ size, and will mind their own business. Nudity will become one of the many options when it comes to clothing. Some will be entirely nude, others will be half nude, and others will have some jewels to enhance their body. I believe after a while people will forget about the stigma of nudity, and nudists and textiles will mix in a joyous diversity. Look today: some people are dressed with suits, some have skirts, some shorts, some colorful clothes, others dull ones, some are showing their navel, others buttoned to the top, diversity is everywhere. If nudity was legal everywhere, it will just be one of the many clothing options, and voilà. I could sleep naked, have my breakfast, take a shower and drive to the office with just my flip-flops or nothing, then back and having spent the whole day sans clothes.
You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. Those were the words of John Lennon, and I still dream of this nudist world. I would feel sorry for all the clothing optional resorts, because all resorts would become clothing optional. Actually nudity would become a non-event, as anybody could be nude anywhere. Sure there would be guys and gals who would be aroused by all those naked people, but after a while, this would disappear, and I am sure the crime rate would not rise because of non-sexual nudity everywhere. It may even decrease because of more acceptance of others. Our nudist life would take another dimension, and the world would be more at peace I’m sure.
To end up on this, if nudity was legal everywhere, I am sure I would wear some clothes some days, for weather reasons mainly, but I would stay nude as much as I can, carrying most of my activities in the buff. I would cut my wardrobe by 90% probably, will cut my spending, will cut my washing powder and electricity consumption, and will have a much fulfilled life, just by being able to live naked. I am now thinking of moving permanently into a clothing optional community, and although I am still putting some thinking into it, it will probably enter my goal bucket so I can realize my dream.
And you, what would you do if nudity was legal everywhere? I look forward to reading your thoughts.
