The perks of being a nude model: An interview with Venya Gushchin, CC'18

An interview with at art model at Columbia University. Kid’s got a nice attitude, which I guess is expected. He’d have some troubles with his current vocation otherwise.

Well, I’ve alway been comfortable with my body. I know that there are things that I want to improve about it, but I’ve always had a sort of healthy body image. So it just makes me feel that more people should be like that, and we should get over the squeamishness that we have about nudity. That’s my biggest thing, the squeamishness associated with it.

Laundry

Truth:

I think the best argument for nudism is contained in one word: laundry.

christiannaturist:

Some of the worst forms of corruption and degradation in society comes from shaming and ridiculing the human body. By considering it something “dirty” or “shameful” we regard nudity as something not to be discussed. Disrobing is something that is only done when one has to. As a result, children growing up in American society are taught, both directly and indirectly, that there is something inherently shameful about their body and that it should remain covered at all times. This leads to the children, especially during the developing adolescent years, when their bodies are changing and they are naturally curious about those changes, to associate their nude bodies as purposed for sex. Whether or not they engage in sex is another issue, but it is often the case, at the earliest ages, that disrobing is equated with sex. The relationship is simple, all of their lives they have been told to only disrobe for bathing, a doctor’s visit, or sex; there is never any other reason. And above all, never let someone of the opposite sex see you naked! Society itself perpetuates this lie in everyday life via all forms of media. On the one hand society condemns someone who shows their body to others as a sexual deviant, whether or not the act had any sexual connotation or not. On the other, popular media continually promotes the sexualization of the body, particularly the female body, in movies, advertising, television, magazines, newspapers, any way they can. The body is portrayed as “sexy” or as a tool for getting what one wants. Women are encouraged to look and dress a certain way to gain status or popularity. Men also, are not exempt from this bombardment, though it is often presented in a different way. Men are encouraged to dress a certain way, or look a certain way, to display sexual prowess and attract women. Women are instructed to reveal just enough skin to sexualize the body, and are then simultaneously called “sluts”, or worse, or are devalued for the way they dress. All of this, gives power and control to those that exploit the body, simply because you are told at a very young age that the body is not good to be seen and should be covered up at all times. The church has played it’s mighty hand in this as well, condeming any who would stray from the ideal of the body being somehow less beautiful or noble if it is “exposed” to people’s eyes. The sad part about it is, that baptism in the church was largely performed nude up until the 5th century. Interesting fact isn’t it? Pornography, body shame, ridicule, so many issues could be largely dispelled if people simply came to terms with the truth that the body is not shameful. It is beautiful and created in the image of God. It is not something to be embarassed or ashamed of. If we can take back control of our bodies from the media, from popular culture, even from the church establishment, we may, once we are able to look at one another through the eyes of acceptance, begin to realize that we are not all that different from one another.

How People React When You Tell Them You Are a Nudist

I get the erection and the swinging one a lot.

Are you a Naked Person?

Why, yes…I am a naked person.

This from the article:

I asked my sister this question over a couple of beers last year, and she told me that she is definitely not a naked person. If she is in the bedroom, getting ready to go out, and her loving husband walks in and exclaims, “You’re naked!” (no doubt delighted) she becomes self-conscious and dashes into the bathroom.  I, on the other hand, regularly cause my roommate to avert her eyes when I wander into the kitchen for a glass of water with nothing but a thong on. Our mother is not a naked person. Neither is my best friend. I cause all these people consternation when I forget my towel and decide to make the trip to the bathroom without it, propriety be damned. But then again, I cause them consternation in a lot of other ways as well. It’s just the way I am. I would strip off my clothes when I was two-years-old whenever I got the chance.

Barriers to Social Nudity Faced by Females

From the post:

Since many more men than women choose to participate in social nudity, some women nudists may feel simply feel intimidated and inhibited simply because there are fewer of them, in other words by the sheer imbalance of numbers among the sexes. The gender imbalance may not even be an obstacle to female participation necessarily because of concerns about rude behavior or physical safety. It can simply be that women like to spend time socializing with other women at about any kind of social gathering, whether naked or clothed. Thus, the absence of other women in significant numbers, to talk with and socialize with can be a real deterrent to many women having the desire to participate in social nudity.
