I shared this thought with a friend today through chat: "Every human body has a story...and it is through that story the defines how we are shaped."
When we are nude we are presenting that story for all the world to see. Every stretch mark, every freckle, every scar, every tattoo, every piercing...no book jacket needed (clothes). It is the easiest way of saying to the world, this is me. This is who I am, this is what I have done with my life.
I think it is that honest bearing of the soul that scares a lot of people. Clothes can protect us, they can hide us, they can make us appear as how we want the world to see us. Nudism gives us a level of transparency that conflicts with society's norms.
Why do you love nudism?
