“Being natural and matter-of-fact about nudity prevents your children from developing an attitude of shame or disgust about the human body. If parents are very secretive about their bodies and go to great lengths to prevent their children from ever seeing a buttock or breast, children will wonder what is so unusual, and even alarming, about human nudity.”
Dr. Lee Salk
Naturism is also about accepting yourself for what you are… A creature of Nature. It’s about not trying to fit a single perfect body type, but considering each and every person as an exciting and beautiful part of Nature itself. You really don’t need to be slimmer, or bigger, or rounder, or more muscular, or whatever else, to be accepting of yourself and to really believe that you truly are beautiful. Also… neither accidents, or surgery, or childbirth, or ageing, or even your place on the social register can or ever will change any of that.
Nude is so much more about feelings of freedom, and naked about the fear of seeing, being seen or being sinful. Nude is about exaltation and the greatness of the Creator, naked about guilt, anxiety and self-loathing.”
Boosting one’s confidence by being nude is overcoming others who cover some of their body parts they consider to be shameful. #nudism— Thomas P. Berns
