You may have seen in the news on any number of occasions that the dress codes for girls in schools are adapted in order for the girls to not be “distracting” to the male students and teachers. Most recently, I saw a school district that changed their rules to make girls’ skirts have to be longer so as not to cause the male staff to feel uncomfortable or tempted. All I have to say to that is if someone is tempted by the uncovered legs of a child, then that person has serious problems and should not be working with children in any capacity. And definitely not left alone with a child ever.
Do you know that there are places in the world where girls and women can be completely naked, even sit with their legs spread open and their genitals exposed to the sun and wind – in public, around boys and men, and they are not ogled, disrespected, harassed, abused, raped, or even innocently touched without consent? True fact. Can you even imagine that?
Do you know that there are places in the world where girls and women can be bare-chested and free without fear of anyone commenting on their bodies or making a big deal of it? There are places where it’s natural to be nude/naked and people of all ages, sizes, shapes, colors, and every diversity from all walks of life gather to enjoy nature, hang out with friends, and live a clothes-free lifestyle, whether on vacation or permanently.
Do you know that there are places in the world where boys and men can be completely naked and walk around among girls and women who are completely naked – and they just treat everyone exactly the same as if they were all clothed? They aren’t touching themselves or touching the girls or women. They aren’t being inappropriately sexual. They are just being normal human beings in their natural bodies. This DOES happen all of the time, every day at many places around the world. Life CAN be like this!
I am, of course, referring to family friendly nudist resorts, camps, and clubs. They are some of the safest places in the world for women and children. And they are proof that it is totally possible for men to be among naked women and children without sexualizing them, harassing them, abusing them, and/or raping them.
They are also proof that the key to keeping boys and men from being sexual predators has nothing to do with what girls and women are wearing or not wearing. On the contrary, if we treated nudity as normal and natural – and not as titillation for entitled men – there could be a dynamic shift in our culture away from misogynistic values and toward equality, freedom, and true bodily autonomy for everyone. Think about that a moment, please. Really consider it. Nudism could be a healing force in the world. Also, girls and women should never have to cover up or change anything about their bodies in order to live their lives without harassment, fear, or shame.

Show a man with a gun… it’s called action. Show a man with a dick… it’s called indecent. There’s something wrong with the way Americans have come to accept almost every aspect of the human condition except for the most natural one. We’ve accepted…
“Our mats on the floor were laid out in a semicircle. For obvious reasons, you don’t want to sit behind someone when you’re doing yoga in the nude.” I moved to Berlin in April 2017 after a breakup. I used the change in environment as a chance to reflect on my inner self, and began trying new things in an attempt to, as some might say, “find myself.”
In San Francisco you’ll see naked people on bike rides, lounging on Baker Beach, running in the Bay to Breakers or walking around at the Folsom Street Fair… A few years ago Bay Curious listener Kelly Hardesty was walking in the Castro with her daughter…
Got the blues? Try taking off all your clothes. At least that’s what one scientist suggests after discovering that humans feel more content when completely naked. Naturists are happier than most people and feel more secure in their bodies…
So here I was. A a 21-year-old naked woman sitting right within the grasp of upward of 20 naked men at a time, and I have never felt so respected in my entire life… I learned to uncross, relax and sit openly as so many men do in the clothed world…
The publication surveyed 18,000 readers around the world to understand how women perceive body image, acceptance and confidence… This year, 14 of its 19 international editions participated in the special issue. It explores what it means to be naked — physically, mentally and emotionally.
Until very recently, I would have gnawed off my own arm more readily than take off my clothes in public. Partly because I am pale, I’ve had two children and my tummy does not resemble a washboard, but primarily because I am British.
THIS woman is getting paid a fortune just to mop people’s floors and dust their shelves. She said she got into the unique industry thanks to a suggestion from her personal trainer. But the job comes with one very big catch…
More than 2,500 women entered the record books on Saturday, raising hundreds of thousands of euro in the process for a children’s cancer charity, when they stripped off at a secluded Wicklow beach to take part in the largest-ever skinny dip.
