Simple Nudity, or Sophisticated?

Did you ever wonder what would motivate a person to be nude, around the house, or on a beach, or anywhere else? Here you can ask all your questions, and people can testify to their own reasons for wanting to live life naturally.<P>All Villagers may post here.

Which of the two men is the more perverted? Which of them knows what simple nakedness is?

I love the phrase "smiled and walked on" in that scenario. Even if they didn't lust, I think many non-naturists would frown in disapproval or gasp in shame, trying to put the image out of their minds. But the naturist would indeed smile -- not in lust or desire, but maybe at the innocence and unintended humor of the situation, and surely in acceptance and in pure appreciation of a fellow human's body.

Before I discovered naturism, I didn't see how someone could experience any appreciation other than sexual for an unclothed body; now, it seems natural to appreciate an unclothed person in terms of God's "fearful and wonderful" creation, with no sexual component at all -- a very liberating change of mind and heart.

Jochanaan,

I too like the symbolism of "smiling and walking on", simply accepting the woman's nude body as natural and acceptable without perverse thoughts. Wouldn't it be onderful if such behavior became the societal norm?
