Nudity and Sensuality

Is there a stigma with being nudist and enjoying the sensuality of it?

As nudists we all agree that being nude feels natural and it’s just down right comfortable. What about the enjoyment received by the feelings of sensuality? I know 95% of the time when I get naked it is simply because I cannot stand being in clothes any more and I just need to unwind and relax. By Hollywood’s standards I do not fit the mold of perfection…far from it. But this does not mean that there are times when I feel damn good about my self and (dare I say it) I feel sexy. Okay that last part was after I watched 300 Rise of an Empire while working out and felt more like a Spartan.

Yet still, I know the artist in me finds great beauty and sexuality with the human form. I enjoy being naked, I enjoy seeing other people enjoying themselves being naked. I do not find myself driven with lust, but I do find a certain sense of sensual enjoyment by being surrounded by the nude form. Sensual as in, each of my senses are experiencing some form of enjoyment from the experience. My eyes enjoy the beauty of the human form. My ears enjoy hearing nude people enjoying themselves. My sense of touch is aroused by the breeze of the wind, the warmth of the son, and yes the embrace of nude friend or lover. My sense of taste is heightened because my other senses are experiencing blissful enjoyment. So wine tastes sweeter, foods taste richer.

Being nude removes the barriers of class and social status. It presents to the world who I am in all my imperfect glory. A blond male, who is slightly overweight and loves to laugh and smile. I am not suggesting that when I get nude I am over whelmed with a state of mind filled with sex, and lust filled deviant thoughts. But I will not deny there is a sense of sensuality that comes with being nude alone and socially that I find divine.

  1. That wasn't my opinion.I wish I could remember the references that were pointed out to the class when this was taught. I just remember the above.I agree with the "inability" to save ourselves but the "wretchedness" is where we part but I have no defense. Faith may be discussed but is not an arguable topic. Believers "get it" and non-believers can always find an argument.

    I simply love the sensual feeling of nudity especially with like minded people.

    • True. Faith is carefully crafted that it's not falsifiable. If a religion says if you can show X + Y = Z, then it is wrong, that religion would not last 2 hours. My religion for example says that if you pray, God may or may not answer your prayer. If you do something good or bad, you will be rewarded or punished AFTER your death. So, whatever happens, nothing can falsify the religion.

      For me personally, because religion is so obviously unfalsifiable and that's no testimony that it's true, religion MUST never be used to order our views of morality and ethics. Naturism is obviously wholesome so I would reject any religion that says you mustn't be nude when in the company of others. If the church opposes nudism, it means nothing to me.

    • Oh, do they? I thought they disappeared after the 1st century or so. Pauline Christianity ruled the Roman Empire shortly after that. I've never seen an Ebionite church. EVERY church, whatever the denomination is basically Pauline.

  2. isnt it funny how a religion that demands submission condems a life style that activly practises that very concept? Just for the record the Church of Rome was not the first The first "Christian Church" . I was the first to bear the name. The first church founded by the great rabbi was the church of Jerusalem. carried on by Jesus' Brother James and The Magdalene.

    • I agree. St Paul was really an interloper. The Church of St James and St Peter in Jerusalem was the Ebionite Church that fizzled out and St Paul's new creation of Christianity succeeded. It was literally a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul. LOL.
