Why be nude?

Postby LivingFree » Wed Jan 03, 2007 11:30 am

On BareChristians@yahoo.groups Merwin Van Doornik gave the best brief answer to this question I have ever seen anywhere. Sure, it's nothing new, but he just said it in a way that caught my imagination.

more acceptance of other people no matter what their status in life or
the shape & size of their bodies, etc.

Personally, it's beyond my comprehension why anyone would insist on wearing clothes when they aren't needed. Like now, it's sunny and comfortably warm; why wear clothes? Speaking of that, I need to get out and enjoy this beautiful weather. :fantastic:

IMO, he left one thing out -- comfort. It doesn't take long for me to get really annoyed at shoes, socks, belts, straps, and tight-fitting cloth when I have to be out of the house. I can even tell the difference in my spirit and attitude. Getting free of clothes is the first thing I do when I come home from somewhere, or come indoors from working out in the yard. What a relief it is!

You are so right, Living Free: thanks. I'll add that to my list. Glad that my short post is being useful!

Zip, Strip, flop, plop--oh what a relief it is.... 8) :P :lol: (sung in the tune of the old Alka Seltzer jingle) :lol:

It just came to me out of the blue, following LF's comments--which I agree with emphatically :)

I can think of very few reasons to wear clothes

(1) For protection from cold weather. When it's raining, nudity is best.

(2) When doing something that would be hazardous to a nude body.

(3) To avoid being arrested since people are offended and embarrassed by nudity and will more than likely call the police.

Otherwise, nudity is best.

Perhaps, over time, we can do away with the third reason. :biggrin:

Wouldn't it be great to live in a clothing optional world? :lol:

There is another reason, God moved Paul to teach us that even in our freedom we must avoid stumbling blocks in the path of younger Christians.

But to live in a clothing optional world would be great.

Still a newbie, I guess, with less than one year under my belt, living clothes-free as much as possible. But, LivingFree said it so well when referring to "binding cloth". While sitting in a movie theater with my wife yesterday I began to feel so uncomfortable with my denim shorts binding against my groin. In the past I just accepted the condition as normal.

Since becoming a nudist, though, I've begun to abhor clothing and shed it every opportunity I get. No, i didn't undress nor even undo my shorts in the theater. However, I did have to readjust them to stop the binding against my gonads.

I wish i could work nude. I'm a rural letter carrier and every time I get in and out of my vehicle...everything gets in a bind...so uncomfortable. But, oh well, maybe someday...for now, I just bear with it and look forward to stripping off as soon as I get home.
