This is a good question, isn’t it? Particularly when you are nudist and you spend some time or lot of time entirely naked, you know that we do not need clothes to live weather permitting of course. The Independant article on Erica Simone tries to give answers. Or at list, Erica Simone, with her Naked in New York pictures try to provide an answer.
The headline enlighten us a bit: “A photographer simple wondered ‘what the world would feel like naked, without the empowering or disempowering effect of clothing.'” This quote from the article makes you think: “What we wear acts as a silent language, allowing us to convey who we are and want to be to the outside world.” I would say that what we do not wear act a silent language too. Being naked convey who we are and want to be to the outside world too, showing that nudity is a clothing option too.
Then, this one is thought provoking: “Most passers-by seem fairly unperturbed by her nudity, which was not intended for shock value.” And I think it’s an interesting one. Most people are not perturbed by nudity, even public nudity. I would bet it’s the same persons who would be perturbed by nudity that would be perturbed by uncommon clothing.
Now, it’s interesting to read the comments too to reflect the different point of views on nudity, that really revolves, for the negative ones, around morality and religion. This shows the mental construction of how nudity is perceived. Nudity is not “bad” in itself, we, society and religious body, make it bad by associating it to sexuality. This said, I still believe nudity should be one of the clothing option. Enjoy!
Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked and Share the Naked Love!

C’est curieux depuis quelques semaines la version française de ce blog n’existe plus.
Comment se fait-il?
Bonjour Chris, en fait, je publie indifféremment en français ou en anglais et il s’avère que ça fait longtemps qu’il n’y a plus que de l’anglais… il faut que je me remette au français. A bientôt dans la langue de Molière.
Ah! Merci,donc j’attends.
Why do we need clothes? – well, not all of us live in a warm dry climate 24/7/365 or with other naturists, SO we HAVE to go into the big bad often cold wet world with other people who may not appreciate the naked form as we do – THAT is why we NEED clothes
This is why this sentence: “we do not need clothes to live weather permitting of course”. So, we agree. 🙂
