Are Naked People Ugly?
The other day, on Twitter, I was faced with the line:
‘Why are people who like walking around nude always people who don’t look good naked?’
For one this is a bit of a generalisation. I know some attractive and very svelte naturists. Secondly, I guess it depends on what you consider good looking? If you match your ‘beauty’ scale to what is spoon fed to us by the media, then yes I suppose most people will not match up to your standards.
Perhaps the beauty is in the naked body as it is – natures creation in all its shapes, colours and sizes. But if in your book beauty equates to sexuality you may be looking at naturism in entirely the wrong way. Because naked and naturism is not about attraction, beauty or sex – it is simply about having the ability to take your clothes off and enjoy it.
I totally understand how people struggle to separate sex and nakedness. I really do. But until you can get a grip of that concept, maybe naturism isn’t your thing.
