Note: If you are angered or offended by anything I say in this post, let me know by commenting on it and we can talk about it. The reason I say this is that I can’t read others’ minds — I don’t know how a person will react to what I write, no matter how pure my intent is. So I just want anyone reading this to know: It’s not my intent to offend or anger you.
Since the reaction that my first “Reaching out to nudists” post got, I thought I’d do a Part 2 and ask more questions to nudists so that I, and any who come across these series of posts, may learn more about the nudist lifestyle and, thus, be better able to empathize with those who live it.
If you choose to answer any of these questions, please leave your answers in the comment section of this post. Thank you. And even if you don’t answer any of these questions, I hope they made you think.
Questions for nudists:
- There is a belief that if people go around naked, then sex will lose its intimacy since the body is exposed for all — not just for your spouse/significant other — to see. Has being a nudist effected how you view sex? If so, how?
- To those who live in nudist families — family members are nudists, too — has nudism effected how you live your day-to-day lives and the relationship you have with family members? If so, how?
- To those who live in non-nudist families — families who are not accepting of your lifestyle — has the fact that you are a nudist caused conflict? If so, what steps have you and/or your family taken to end the conflict?
- How has being a nudist effected your relationship with your nudist and non-nudist friends?
- To a person who says “Nudism is wrong,” what would you say to convince them otherwise?
Like I said above, the intent of these questions is to learn more about the nudist lifestyle in order to better understand those who live it. The reason I ask these questions is because I think that empathy is the key to a more stable peace between people.
There will never be peace on Earth — we’re too imperfect for everyone to get along at all times — but that doesn’t mean that we can’t work towards better treatment for all, no matter who we are or where we come from.
Thank you for reading this post.
