Nudity and freedom

Naturist Philosopher

In a recent post we found that the concept of “freedom” is quite important in thinking about naturism and nudity. This is rather uncontroversial (among naturists, anyhow). “Freedom” (from clothes) is often cited by naturists as one of the most important aspects of naturism. Freedom from clothes is often viewed more generally as the “freedom to be oneself” ? to be able to enjoy life the way we want to, and to not be constrained by conventional social stereotypes that specific types of clothing imply. By not wearing clothes, we avoid having to accept a stereotype that any choice might imply. And further, that by choosing not to wear clothes, we reject stereotypes such as “exhibitionist” or “loose moral character”.

This is going to be a long post. If you just want to see the conclusions without the reasoning behind them, you can skip to the end. But you…

” Studies on Naturism “

The Naked Truth.........

The biggest hurdle for people to over come with regards to nudity and naturism really  is it seems,in their own heads and hidden under their own insecurities.In life there are many ways of insulating and shutting down the process of a natural normal human life. One is money,but another prominent method is to shut down through the need for clothing. It isn’t the actual wearing of clothing that is the problem, it is the need for the clothing as in they cannot do without clothing because they need it as a mask.


People say, “it doesn’t worry me if I have my clothes on or off.” That is great if it is really true. How would it feel going naked to work or naked in public? What impact would that have on you? How worried would you be about the way people would judge you? People need to look…

Can the clothes free community survive if we go off and hive

Formerly clothes free life visit our new home

Many months ago last winter in fact I posted a poll on the state of fragmentation in the clothes free community. I have not taken it down though I have thought about it many times. A recent post on the blog for a clothes free group geared towards young adults made me realize it continued relevance. It also got me think can the clothes free community survive if it’s simply break off is special interest groups?

American society and to a lesser degree North American society has long tradition of being more individualistic and less institutionally connected. We show a strong penchant for grouping together with our “own” kind (an innate human tendency) and less of a multi generational bent. So it is not at all surprising when any group decides to restrict its membership to a single group of people in order to cultivate a sense of belonging and…

Open letter to:  Free the #Nipple…


This subject matter had me chuckling when I was asked about it, until I listened to the point that she was trying to make.

One of my favorite news anchors was on Red Eye one night with Greg Gutfeld where she was wearing a dress that was kind of revealing. I am certain that she was taped into the dress but as they were heckling her a little bit “in fun of course” she proffered her thoughts on breasts.  “Breasts were made for three things: to get a man, to feed babies and prove that gravity works!” The person who said that was Patty Ann Browne who at one time had the 4:30pm spot on Fox news.  She has a bubbly personality and just someone who is a pleasure to listen to, and of course, very easy on the eyes; skimpy dress or not.
