, it located it for me. Here it’s:
There was this drylander who was asked which was more significant, a literjon of water or a vast pool of plain water? The drylander thought a minute and then said: “The literjon is more significant. No single person could possess a great pool of plain water. But a literjon you could hide under your cloak and run away with http://videonudism.com/suntan/girl-beach-erotic-video.php . No one would know.”

We treat nudity, and sexuality, as things which are really so special, we literally have to hide it from others as we fear that, exposed, everyone would try to get it. In a land where it’s everywhere, yet, there’s no requirement for such anxiety. In a way, many western cultures are already like this in relation to a lot of arab cultures, including Saudi Arabia. There, they fear seeing anything but the slits of the eyes of girls for fear that a guy would be tempted by one. Here we are apalled at this thought that people would think that men should be quite so feeble, but we do not live in Saudi Arabia; there, seemingly, they’re; and it’s engrained into them in their culture. We merely have exactly the same notion simply more average; here it is fine to see not just a woman’s face, but her hair as well, and more besides, but most tend to draw the line at some point of skimpy clothes in public. Nudists, ofcourse, go beyond even this, although generally only in certain settings (at the very least nudists tend to avoid being nude where it is not legal to do so).
I’d argue that the issue of sexuality is pretty similar, with the one caveat that children and pregnancy, STDs and STIs are also variables there.
Regardless, my point stands; I think that with enough dialogue people will understand the advantages to being more liberal, both clothing wise and sexuality wise, while at exactly the same time teaching ourselves more so that we prevent the blunders that makes of some such puritans, will be better for everyone.
