Typology Part 2 - Naturism

Postby Petros » Mon Oct 10, 2016 3:23 pm

As we can categorize where we stand as atheists, so we can divide up naturist stances:

Here assume neutral weather:

A: Most physically comfortable nude

B: Physically comfortable nude or clothed

C: Most physically comfortable clothed

Here assume neutral social environment:

1: Emotionally comfortable nude

2: Emotionally neutral

3: Emotionally uncomfortable nude

i: Sees practical or theoretical arguments for nudity

ii: Neutral

iii: Sees practical or theoretical arguments against nudity

a: Glad to see others nude

b: Neutral

c: Offended or bothered by others' nudity

I: Argues for nudity

II: Neutral

III: Speaks against nudity

I am A-1-ii-a-II. Probably it shows. Herself is decidedly C-3-iii-c-II [possibly III, but she does not actively campaign.

I would say I am A-2-i-a-II right now. In the future my II will probably change to I.

A-1-ii-b-II

My wife would agree with everything except ii. She lists me as an "i" personality in that category because I'm always insisting that it's good for me, but I think I'm neutral. 8)

A 2 i a II

Although for:
Here assume neutral social environment:

1: Emotionally comfortable nude

2: Emotionally neutral

3: Emotionally uncomfortable nude

I do not have any social experience to draw upon. Answering this from a social situation perspective If I got looked while in a social setting at I fear I would instantly assume the worst. I am always on guard against those with poor intentions. So I may need to say a 3 (rather than neutral) although I really wish it to be a 1.

B (A if the weather is not "neutral" but instead sunny & warm)
1 (But it depends who's around. Around other nude strangers I am comfortable. Around people from work I would be uncomfortable.)
i (I would add in theological arguments for as well)
a (In an empathetic kind of way. I'm glad to see that they are comfortable being nude. And I suppose as any heterosexual man I am pleased to see attractive women.)
I (online, but not in person - been there, done that, it did not go well)

My wife? I don't know. She joins me nude in the right circumstances (hot tub, sleeping), but she doesn't seek to expose her skin to the sun; and she doesn't "care" about nudity. I think I would put her in the neutral to cautious area.

I consider myself as:
"B: Physically comfortable nude or clothed," but leaning strongly toward "A: Most physically comfortable nude."
"1: Emotionally comfortable nude"
"i: Sees practical or theoretical arguments for nudity"
"a: Glad to see others nude," but with some ambivalence about it.
"I: Argues for nudity," just not very strongly.

For the most part, nudity is not a topic in my social circles and the few times I have mentioned it the response was one of major surprise, total shock, or disbelief. One response was, "You just let it all hang out?" "Yes, I do and it does." That sort of put the damper on being recruited as an evangilist for the church.

My wife does not seem to mind me naked in the back yard or in the hot tub, but she will always wear her bikini. I have been unable to coax her out of it, so far. Last month she went to visit her mother and I went to visit the Sequoins club for the afternoon and evening.

Were a fellow congregant with obvious dedication to the Lord and our faith reveal such a point of view about nudism, social nudity and nudity around the home,
I would find him uniquely qualified to reach the nudist segment of society with the love of Jesus.
Because his stance in favor of nudism flies in the face of the common wisdom, but conforms to the will of God and early church practice,
I would give greater favoritism toward him as an evangelist for the faith,
considering his ability to think outside the confines of our cultural prudishness, replacing it with a reverence for the unclad human body as the handiwork of The Great Sculptor.

As have many missionaries to parts of the world where clothing is not "required."

Indeed, in the tropics, there is even more need for 100% of our skin to be exposed to fresh air and a certain amount of sunshine.
Deliberate nudity is indicated as a matter of health and hygiene if we can put aside foolish notions of shame about our bodies and the equally foolish notion that clothing is a requisite of civilization or even humanity.

It is amazing that supposedly well-educated people can have such loyalty to the clothing cult we grew up in.
And sad that literate Christians interpret the Bible through the same bias.
With due respect to those who studied theology and pastor our churches, we dare not take every word from them as the oracle of God, but we must test their words against the Bible's actual words.

Or in some cases, where clothing has been a true barrier to meaningful connection with tribal groups, and nudity was required in order to build trust.

Meanwhile, harking back to the OP, I rate myself A - 1 - i - a - I, which includes upgrades from ii and II within the past two years, in large part due to my exposure to some good, welcoming and through-provoking folks in these online communities of the naturist faithful. (this is a thank you, by the way :wink: )

I find my type to be.
A: Most physically comfortable nude
1: Emotionally comfortable nude
i: Sees practical or theoretical arguments for nudity
a: Glad to see others nude
I: Argues for nudity

This seems to be the same as Jochannan, which is not a surprise to me. as over the years here I have found a consistent strong resonance with what he has posted.

dv8 also has this type but with only 7 posts showing the database is yet too sparse to draw any conclusions.
I never met anyone that I could not learn something from.
