Hopefully the day when public nudity becomes more acceptable is drawing nearer!
Always being one to challenge the organization I saw nudity as an expansion of the political and social approaches I held. More folks were prepared to be bare in public as a kind of protest and I increasingly came to think of clothing as another kind of oppression. (At the time clothes was likewise a signifier of class.)
It wasn’t until I was in my twenties I ran into societal nudity. There was also no differentiation of class, there were people from many different backgrounds but no social barriers.
There were men and women, singles and couples, gay and straight, and you felt you could speak to anyone.
The one apparent lost http://nudistspic.com was younger folks. Although there were families with young children there were no teenagers or 20’s, all the grownups were pretty much middle aged or old. Since then I spend as much time as possible nude, have become a regular beach goer, moved near the shore and organize my work so that I can be on the beach as frequently as possible (not as regularly as I Had like thanks to our climate). I’ve likewise shaved all body hair as it feels so much nicer and affords a more even tan. My best friends are naturists and I’ve met some great folks at various shores as well as on the net.
There are some favorable changes from my early days, there are more younger people from the lost http://beachnymphs.com at beaches these days. More non naturists seem more tolerant of naturists, and also the web has turned into a great forum to exchange thoughts.
Regrettably however it seems to be taking ages for approaches to change, there are still too many who see us as perverts or link nudity with sex. Our media still sees naturism with the same kind of “naughty postcard” picture and advertisements still uses nudity to sell products. Things are slowly changing though and it’s nice to see sites like this helping to alter attitudes. Keep up the great work. Any opinions are welcome.
