Who would take a shower clothed? The question was asked on a twitter feed some days ago following a policy in a public swimming pool forbidding patrons to shower naked. Considering the fact that wearing a swimsuit is totally ridiculous, showering with one is pure nonsense.
Taking a shower at home is a naked activity. You would never (well I hope) think of wearing anything while showering. For textiles, nudity must remain private. Hence, the policy to wear a swimsuit while showering. However, this is a recent behavior. Back in time, swimming pool showers were places you could get naked without attracting attention.
Prudery has crept slowly, making the human body shameful. I sincerely think that people seeing naked body as shameful deprives humans from their humanity. There’s nothing wrong with being naked while showering, and this should be the norm. Naturists need to continue evangelizing the message that nudity is a normal, natural and healthy state of being.
Get Naked, Stay Naked, Live Naked and Share the Naked Love!
