The Rise Of Nudity – Why You Have Nothing More to Lose Than Your Clothes


“There is a wonderful freedom in being naked, to feel a light breeze on bare skin, the warmth of the sun, the gentle softness of summer rain. It is exhilarating to leave your clothes and your cares behind and to run along a beach, to swim in the sea, to walk in the countryside; or simply to dance, to sunbathe, to garden, to prepare a meal”

“Many gain greater self confidence and self esteem, improve their physical and mental health, and have deeper and more meaningful social interactions”

“For many of us there is also the sense of coming home, of saying to the world “this is me.”

“We are increasingly surrounded by stories that treat the body as a problem, from growing obesity and fear of illness to the projection of an idealized body shape. Being naked together enables us to transcend all that and to value and enjoy our bodies for what they are”

“It was following the Christian reformation that nudity came to be regarded as sinful. The Victorian era was a prudish one with segregated beaches, full cover bathing suits, and bathing machines used to enter the sea with modesty, and though France and Germany began extolling the benefits of nudism in the 1900s, the British came later”

“Nudity is nothing to be ashamed of—campaigns for the right of women to breastfeed in public make that point clear. Rightly so. Being naked is asserting ownership of our own selves”

“In my experience, it also brings joy to others. A woman once leapt out a car to give me a hug and tell me that my nudity had brought sunshine to her day. Two women on horseback once spontaneously joined me on my naked cycle ride”

You have nothing to lose but your clothes.
