Q: I was raised to keep my ‘privates’ covered, how could I possibly let someone see me? A: Nudists don’t view the body as a thing of shame. We all learned body shame from somewhere, you know where you learned yours. Nudists are simply folks that have realized that we learned wrong. Our society equates skin with sex, sex with sin, and sin with evil. Nudists are better able to separate skin from sex. Isn’t it ironic that by covering only ‘private’ parts that those parts become the focus of attention, creating sexual (evil) thoughts? Even more ironic is that by uncovering those parts they lose their mystery and become just another part of a body.
