Note #2: I don’t mean to come across as preachy or anything. In this post, I’m trying to explain a concern that I have about the nudist lifestyle and why I have it.
For a little over a week now, having read peoples’ thoughts on why they chose the nudist lifestyle, I’ve come to another conclusion:
One of the reasons people choose the nudist lifestyle is because of the pleasure that being naked gives them.
Here’s what I mean:
From what I’ve read, people liked feeling the elements on their skin. Liked giving their skin a chance to breath. And liked giving body parts a chance to “go with the flow.” (For example: Allowing breasts to be pulled down by gravity like breasts naturally are, until a piece of clothing like a bra prevents it.)
This, understandably, gives a person pleasure. A feeling of freedom. A feeling of release. A feeling of “This is me! See me and love me for all that I am!”
But, I’m concerned that pleasure can become a problem.
An example of how the pleasure that comes from being naked — whether being naked yourself, or seeing the joy that others have as a result of being naked — can become a problem:
A husband asking his wife to not wear clothes around the house because, he feels, if she does she will be “Concealing her true self.” And when she does, he gets upset. The reason why is because the husband feels as though the wife is depriving herself of something that, to him, is precious: The pleasure of being naked. A pleasure he wants her to experience, too. Which leads to conflict.
If you say “There’s nothing to worry about,” I understand why you say that. For this reason: We’re all human beings. We all have free will. We can all freely choose, or not choose, to do something.
With this post, there’s two points that I want to communicate. Those points are:
- I don’t want the feelings that come with being naked to turn into something that a person feels they can’t live without.
- If a person is naked, than I want that person to be naked of their own free will — because they choose to be — not because they feel, for whatever reason, that they have to be.
Pleasure, in and of itself, is not a bad thing. God likes it when we go “Ooh. That feels good…” The reason why is because everything God created, including our bodies, is good. (Genesis 1:31)
As the old saying goes: “Too much of a good thing is a bad thing.”
