Why I won’t go on nudist blogs: It’s not you, it’s me

UPDATE: May 11th, 2016: A while back I made the choice to go on nudist blogs from time to time. The reason I’m doing it is to get more of an understanding of the lifestyle I write about — nudism. Lust is always something I will have to struggle with — something I will have to fight to avoid. But I pray before I go on nudist blogs, telling God of my pure intent and how I’m trying to help people, and so far I haven’t struggled.

Ever since late November, 2015, when my post Reaching out to nudists got a lot of attention from the nudist community, I’ve felt bad that I haven’t gone to the blogs of nudists who have Liked, commented on, or shared my posts since then. The reason why I feel bad is that all these people take the time and effort to let me know what they think of my writing, and I’m not returning the favor.

The reason why is this: I struggle with the sin of lust. And I’m afraid that going to the websites or blogs of nudists — blogs and websites that could contain nudity — would be leading myself into temptation.

That’s why, in my posts about nudism, I post artistic depictions of nudity in order to help get my points across. For example: Eve, in the Garden of Eden.

I’m finding that, more and more, artistic depictions of nudity are not a source of temptation for me.

Thank you for reading.
