for knowledge in safe, proper, supervised surroundings, they’ll do it on

their own. They will do it in any way they can. Since the adult community
forbids them from experiencing nudity in safe, wholesome ways, they will resort
to other means.
As they resort to other
means, their ordinary, natural want to fill interest gets mixed up with all
sorts of negative feelings. Guilt, shame, humiliation, self-loathing, fear of
punishment. Because these negative emotions keep many children from doing also
Substantially testing before puberty, testing happens after puberty when the
powerful sex drive overwhelms the negative emotions.
So now we have guilt,
shame, embarrassment, fear, and self-loathing related to sexual arousal
too. And we expect healthy adult relations to grow from this?
Because the teenager
feels all these negative emotions related to normal and natural curiosity
and sexual urges, and because the adolescent is still attempting to develop
Powerful skills at associating with the opposite gender, that teen will feel
intimidated by the opposite sex.
So what’ll some
Teenagers do? Resort to less intimidating people to do their
experimenting with. Resort to younger kids.
And a possible sexual
predator is born.
Do I even need to point
out how this is emotional abuse?
Our society in the last
few decades has become increasingly more antagonistic toward nudity. Where once
skinnydipping was the standard among Boy Scouts and needed at YMCA pools, where
once locker rooms were actually used to change clothes in, where once doctor’s
offices were a place where doctors could easily reach the human body they were

Assumed to give medical attention to, we now have a near absence of nudity
anywhere in ordinary life.
Nowhere can we find
wholesome, nonsexual pictures of the naked human body. Nowhere can we enjoy the
affirming, even therapeutic experience of being nude in front of someone else and be
accepted for who we are. We have forfeited all pictures of the body to those
who would describe it in sexual and degrading ways. All because, from birth, we
are brainwashed into believing nudity is dangerous.
And why do we do that to
our kids? Because our parents did it to us. Because their parents did it to
them. And so on and so on.
When will we break this
destructive cycle?
No one ever tries, because
no one ever thinks about it. You don’t challenge something that has been
brainwashed into you every minute of your life since birth.
But we have to question
it. The emotional and physical health of our kids are at stake. In some
cases, even their very lives are at stake. Aren’t these important enough motives
to challenge something you have simply assumed was true all your life?
Family Skinnydippers is
Really serious about these issues. Maybe now you can understand why societal
nudity is so important to us. This is not just a lifestyle choice. This isn’t
merely the enjoyment of nude recreation. This is an essential cause to us. It is a
cause we feel is worth fighting and sacrificing for.
Do we demand continuous
Of course not. There are
many times when nudity would be uncomfortable, even completely unhealthy.
Do we demand that everyone
be bare, whether they like it or not?
Perish the thought. That
would be as wrong as using the law to force everyone to wear clothing all the
All we ask is that those
who wish to be naked under practical circumstances be allowed to do so. Not for
shock value, not for sexual titillation, not for confrontational motives, not
for exhibitionist impulses. Simply because nudity is a natural, comfortable,
Nice, wholesome, healthy thing to be every so often. Those who love it
ought in order to do so. Those who don’t enjoy it do not have to do it at all.
But what if a person is
Piqued at nudity?
Our blunt answer to that
Individual: grow up. Why should individuals be compelled by threat of law to do something
they strongly disagree with, if to you is that you pick
(emphasis on the word pick) to be violated?
The astonishing truth that our
society has difficulty grasping because the brainwashing is so pervading, is
that human beings get used to nudity very fast. How can a lifetime of be overcome literally within hours, if not minutes? That is a
testament to how unnatural and useless the brainwashing was in the first
If you are afraid you’ll be
shocked at the nudity of others, that will wear off fast. If you’re fearful
You will be sexually aroused at the sight of nudity, maybe you’ll be for a
while. But even that loses its power in a brief time. The overwhelming
Understanding of the vast majority of individuals who are eventually exposed to ordinary,
nonsexual nudity after an eternity of brainwashing is that it was never a big
deal in the first place.
The only embarrassment we
need to feel about nudity is how frightened over nothing we were all our lives.
