With pasting my first blog "To be or not to be . . ." a few days ago. I came across this comment on another blog
"If you don't understand your underlying motives and principals toward it, you're not going to be able to explain why you think and feel the way you do to others. I don't personally think, "it feels good" cuts it. Sex feels good, but that's not a sound reason for participating in sex publicly."
So this has left with thinking of my reasons to be nude. I know that there is a number of comments and study's that praise the virtues of being in the nude such as how good it is for stress, a good way to get Vitamin D ect, but with the comment above does this really cut it? Is it a good excuse to be nude?
I believe my first reason is that I'm hot! (I'm not talking about my body - even though it would be that I have a good self image, but rather body temperature.) During the year we average with a min of 8 - 20 degrees Celsius in winter and 18 - 25 degrees Celsius during summer. In summer I almost die because I find it too hot whilst in winter I'm often asked where my jacket as I'm wearing shorts and t-shirts.
Another reason is that I wonder if I don't suffer from a sensory disorder as there are certain type of clothes that I just don't enjoy wearing. I only buy one particular make of jeans, I prefer the dri fit material for my t-shirts and golf shirts and I find that I chafe less with a nylon dri fit type of underwear. I prefer a silk sheet during winter and normally don't use anything during summer. My son has just been diagnosed as having sensory processing disorder. Maybe I have it too.
My final reason is that I just feel comfortable being in the nude in my home, if my backyard was more private I guess I would also enjoy getting a all round time.
As for my principles I fully agree that there is nothing inherently wrong with a natural body and that nudity does not equate to sex. Being nude actually boost body acceptance.
So as I continue to process my thoughts and figure out my motives and principles I would like to hear from you . . .
What are your motives and principles to being nude?
