"Nudity is our ideal state, our pure state, our natural state, our default state. Clothing is always a deviation from the default and is, therefore, a compromise and an aberration.."

"Body shame originates in our minds with our thoughts and perceptions. Neither our religion nor our culture makes us ashamed of our bodies, only our belief that we should be ashamed. Shame comes from our own thoughts which we have the power to change. If we perceive no shame then there is none. No one can make you feel ashamed without your permission."

A Natural State?

Here’s a question I saw on Tumblr today: “Mass participation in pubic hair removal has lead to hairless genitals now being the norm. Would mass erections at nudist events and locations lead to better acceptance of the erection as a natural state of the penis?”

In my mind, the answer is “No.” The natural, default state of […]

24 hours of nudity

I subscribe to a Tumblr feed called “Just Shower Thoughts” which is basically thoughts that might pop into your head while you’re taking a shower. Now and then, I see one that causes me to stop and think.

I saw this one today: “We are born naked, but most people never live a 24 hour period […]

Shower Thought

From my personal journal:

I don’t have to tell my gentle readers how much I enjoy taking a shower. I’m sure many don’t really appreciate their time in the shower; they only see it as a necessity for the utilitarian task of getting clean. They probably don’t take the time to enjoy the sensation of the […]

Adjustment Time

This morning I received an email about the upcoming nude swim. Apparently, a lot of new people are expected to attend, among them some who have never been nude with others. This raised the question of whether or not to allow first timers to wear swimsuits. Although the club’s policy is to require nudity at […]

My nude agenda (or lack thereof)

There is no right way or wrong way in spite of what various groups try to convince us. If there is a right way, it is decided on a personal level of one person. Any attempt to control others in terms of wearing or not wearing clothing is the real issue. Simple nudity that is […]

Right to be nude?

Does anyone have a “right” to be nude? At one time I would have said, “Absolutely!” Now I’m not quite so sure. Maybe I feel inundated by naturist evangelism and affirmations and it’s starting to sound like a lot of other presumed rights that are advocated by countless groups.

I enjoy nudity either alone or with […]

Once upon at time in a land far away...

Long, long ago, in a faraway land two friends and I were eating pizza in the kitchen in the wee hours of the morning. None of us was wearing a stitch of clothing. When I relate this story, I’m of often asked, “Why?” My answer is always, “Because we were hungry, of course.” […]

Default & Natural State

Nudity is our default and natural state. We all entered the world in that state and we felt no shame or embarrassment as we saw our first light and took our first breath. As we grew older we learned how to feel shame and embarrassment about our bodies from our parents, our teaches, our churches, […]
