“Nudism isn’t about sex!”
“It’s not sexual”
How many times have we said or heard this type of statement when nudism is being discussed? We almost NEED to say it, when trying to explain nudism to the non-nudist. Else we can’t get past the “swinger-sex club” perception and barrier.
We never seem to discuss why, however. Why is nudity non-sexual to us, even in light of a overwhelmingly sexualized environment that uses nudity and suggestive nudity as a pivotal point?
