No Nudes Is Bad Nudes

Memorial Day traditionally has been the kickoff for nudist resorts in regions like ours. I’ve enjoyed nude sunbathing for years and, as others have told me, it’s no big thing.  But whatever the location, nudists enjoy the sun and the freedom allowed by a clothes-free environment.

This freedom comes from total body acceptance without regard to the ‘young, beautiful, slender bodies’ culture. I’ve seen the bodies of senior citizens, kids, fat people, skinny people, and just about everyone else under the sun. It’s hard to believe – but nobody really cares what you look like. The naked novelty idea wears off after about ten minutes – really.

In this society, we associate being naked with sex – but nudist resorts are about as sexy as dog shows. There are no displays of affection, teasing bikinis, or “enhanced” Speed-O’s. Sun worshippers are just average, tradition – bound Americans with this one rebellious activity which they do not consider rebellious at all.

Do they worry about skin damage from the sun? Oh please – virtually everything is relatively safe when done in moderation. And anything done regularly to the extreme is usually harmful – especially moderation.

    I have no objections to it from a moral or philosophical point of view. Americans are way too puritanical, with our strange attitudes toward public breastfeeding being a prime example.

    However, I do see some practical problems, not the least of which is the fact human beings have a tendency to leak and stink. And please spare me the romantic bullshit about how wonderful our natural odors are. Freshly bathed, sure, but how long does that last?

    I notice the pool in the photo, and I think that’s the one venue where nudity really does make sense, in or near the water. Please do NOT sit your bare ass down on my sofa, thank you very much.

    Kinda reminds me why those old ringer washers were so dangerous. The saying, “Let it all hang out!” definitely was created after they invented washers with spin cycles.
