Your Lack of Nudity is Hurting Us All.

I, like many other women, went through a transformation when I was in a nudist environment. Surrounded by people of all shapes and sizes, I went topless in Ibiza. In that moment, I didn’t suddenly love my body — but, I accepted it. I learned to say “fuck you” to hating it. I started to enjoy life, free from the constant anxiety that my body wasn’t “good enough” to do so.

Colorado City Council decides 11-year old girls can walk around topless in Public.

Uhhh…yeah.  This is where I have a serious conflict.  But hey you guys discuss this in the comments section while I try to wrap my brain around this one.

Excerpt from the article:

Following a ‘Free the Nipple’ campaign in Fort Collins, Colorado, feminists have won a victory allowing women–and girls as young as eleven–to be bare-breasted in public.

After a three-year lawsuit, activists have won a case where a topless ban from city law has been removed by Fort Collins City Council.

The removal of the law will allow girls as young as eleven to legally walk around the city topless, costing the city over $320,000 in fees.

Good luck out there with this one guys.

I Refuse to Make my Kids Ashamed of Their Bodies so We’re a Naked Household!

I think the title says it all!

I Refuse to Make my Kids Ashamed of their Bodies So We’re a Naked Household

Other times, he would pounce in ready to tell me about the random thoughts that were racing through his big toddler mind.

I was always naked and both of us were comfortable with this.

In fact, all these years later we are still comfortable with our nudity.

Our whole family seems to be comfortable with nudity.

We change in front of each other, often share a stall in the family change room at the pool and shower with the bathroom door open.

Naked Voting.

Okay…this is the moment where i need to yell…WHAT THE FUCK???!!

Yes Katy Perry and a number of other women stripped down naked and pulled off these ridiculous stunts in order to get people to vote this Tuesday.  For the Democrats of course.  While i have no problem with naked women, to be honest this was just silly.

Out of Shape Women Strip Naked to Encourage Anti-Trump Vote, Backfires Terribly.

Why would you do something so utterly ridiculous and to be honest, just primed to have most people recoil in disgust.  And those that don’t, either laugh their asses off or masturbate to the images.  I guess somewhere inside their little liberal minds they actually think posing nude in a campaign ad will either help their side win or make stars like Katy Perry relevant again.  Yes Katy will forever be known as the dumb ass who showed her tits and ass on the internet in order to get you to go vote.  Utterly ridiculous and in poor taste.  All this has shown in not the beauty of women, but the desperation of irrelevant celebrities and the Democrat Party.  Because all that T&A was not on my mind when i stepped into the voting both yesterday.

Why is it Necessary to Take Nude Photos of Oneself?

reposted from this blog: Why is it Necessary to Take Nude Photos of Oneself?

I have been wondering why I find it necessary to take skyclad photos, why anyone who is a naturist/nudist or someone who simply enjoys being nude. Why the images? Why are they posted to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, or other social media sites? Having spent way too much time wondering about this, I think I may have arrived at an answer that fits many who are like me.

Images are there to help us, to help me, get out of our heads. They become a visible proof that we are more than just feelings and thoughts.There is an honesty, or at least an attempt at honesty, expressed in these images. Risking being vulnerable enough to be honest, is not the same thing as posting images for exhibitionist purposes. The images I am talking about have nothing to do with lewdness, lust, or then tension of sexuality. Intention, it all comes down to intention. Images that are exhibitionist have a motive of obtaining sexual satisfaction or to shock. So, what is the intention?

If you take photos of yourself au naturel, why do you do so? What is your need? Why do you allow others to see these images? Why the risk? All images have a purpose and meaning. However, we rarely know what the purpose and meaning of our own images are about. There is a story, a story of at least 1,000 words for each image. More often than not, the story is yet to be discovered, as the image is more about unconscious projection than that it is about conscious intention.

As for myself, the images tell the story of my reclaiming my authority rather than having the authority projected onto others. I refuse the authority of the shadows from my childhood. I refuse the authority of a church that would tell me that my naked body is sinful. I refuse to be a victim. Of course, there are laws and a broader society within which we all find ourselves. For our own safety, we find that fine line between “in your face” confrontations and in hiding from the world and our own fears.

Read the rest at the link above.  But i have to admit I am inspired to take more nudes of myself.

Who Cares About Your Genitals

Preface

I wrote this essay as part of a first year writing course I took this fall with Dr. Andrew Joseph Pegoda. To put this into context, I am a senior (5th year) undergraduate mathematics major taking this particular English core requirement for the third time. The original assignment was to define a mores or ritual in American culture. In freaking out I decided to write in a style that I was more familiar with. With that in mind, here is the result.

Who Cares About Your Genitals?

In 2003, Stephen Peter Gough began hiking naked through the United Kingdom “earning the nickname ‘the naked rambler’.” His more than thirty subsequent arrests resulted in “almost seven years in prison” (Gough 6 and 160). Given the potential consequences of public nudity, we can see how strongly western culture values the ritual of clothing oneself. Thus, we define socially mandated…
