Naturist Thought #83 – Pictures
are a very hot topic in the naturist community. Most resorts do not allow
pictures to be taken, for what seems obvious reasons. With the advent of social
networks, publishing pictures of others require their consent. This seems sensible!
However, the perception of nudism and naturism by others is often biased by the
filter of sexuality. A naked body is seen as a sexualized body, although, as
naturists know, a naked body in a social setting is just a naked body.
naturism needs more acceptance, nudist pictures are a two-edge sword. On one
side, they promote the nonsexual view of the naked bodies, on the other side,
they reinforce the sexual view of naked bodies in the mind of textilists who do
not know or understand naturism. Furthermore, being categorized as a nudist/naturist
can have consequences outside of the naturist world and retaliation may happen.
of naturists should be taken and used with caution, particularly on digital social
networks. At home, if you are comfortable displaying naked pictures and hanging
them on the wall, do it. I think it’s a great testament of our natural
lifestyle. On the web, use your judgment and decide whether it could have or
not personal consequences. Those consequences are often outside of our own
hands. If I truly believe there’s nothing wrong or that deserve to be hidden
with naturism, the world is not always peaceful and understanding.
