Where nudity should be the norm

I have a really interesting topic for today. I wanted to touch on the subject of places and activities where being nude should be the common practice. Most of the time clothing is required and not because it’s more practical, but because society has deemed that certain parts of the body should not be seen publicly. This notion is completely wrong, in my opinion at least. Here are some places and activities that would benefit from not requiring clothing.

One obvious place where being nude should be the norm is swimming pools, beaches, bathing houses etc. Now, I know there’s clothing optional ones, and even places where clothing is not allowed, but this should be the common place everywhere. Think about it, at home you shower/bathe naked, so why should it be any different in other places ? Bathing suits serve no real purpose, they just cover up certain parts of the body that society thinks shouldn’t be seen in public. In my opinion the beautiful human body is not something one should be ashamed of and hide. Also, if you swim clothes free, you will instantly realize that it feels much better and way more comfortable as well. And when you are enjoying bathing in the Sun at beaches, it’s pretty much the same thing, and if you are naked you don’t get ugly tan lines either. To conclude, the fact that certain places allow nudity proves that people deep down know that water is better enjoyed naked.

Many different sports would also be better if they were practiced naked. Clothing actually restricts the athlete, as the body is more free to move when not wearing anything. It can get in the way and also adds extra weight, so it is pretty much a hinder. Shoes might be necessary in certain sports, but other than that, clothing is pretty much useless. In ancient Greece it was actually common place for sports to be done in the nude, it’s too bad that modern times have changed that. Of course, certain sports like American football for example, do need something extra for protection. But in most cases, if you just think about it a little, sports would absolutely be better off done clothes free. Also, there’s not many things more beautiful than an athlete’s well trained body, if we’re thinking from an artistic point of view.

Another thing that should be done naked is dancing. Much like sports, clothes restrict the movements that the body makes. There are actually nude dance pieces, even if not that many, but enough to prove the point that clothes are not really needed. That’s why lately there’s more and more of them, or at least the dancers wear less clothing, so it looks like the people are figuring out that dancing better done without clothes. I know that certain dances entail certain attires, but that’s pretty much the only thing you can bring up that is contra clothes free dancing. Also, you can’t forget how beautiful a nude dancer’s body is, why hide it ? Now having named sports and dancing, we can probably draw the conclusion that most physical activities are better done in the nude. A new trend emerging is naked yoga, which is nice.

These three are just a few examples of things better done naked, there are plenty more. I would love to see you guys write some more activities/places that fit the description in the comments section below. Generally speaking, most things that we do clothed can also be done nude, and it usually makes it a lot more fun and enjoyable. For example, doing chores, just relaxing at home, watching tv, going on walks, and even social gatherings could be improved by going clothes free. That is basically what nudists/naturists know already and also one of the main reasons they love being naked. Now it’s up to the rest of the world to figure it all out. I can only hope for my sake (and everybody else’s really), that nudity will be welcomed in more and more places and activities.

  1. It could be an interesting experiment to only use clothing of the reasons they were basically invented for: protection. Of course that would be in an ideal world because the moment you step out of the door you’ll be likely to be arrested.
    Nowadays clothing has become so much more than that, it became a way to express ourselves. The same person can look rich, poor, modern, traditional, punk, emo, geek, whatever. All depending on what he or she wears that day. I sometimes ask myself how people would express themselves without clothing. Would there still be so many differences? Maybe we would only differ based on mindset?
    By expressing ourselves via our clothing we’re basically using someone else’s design to show the world who we are… Have we become that lazy?
    What I’m trying to say here: Naked philosophising is great! 🙂

  2. For generations, it has been well-documented and obvious that sleeping in the nude is vastly superior for one’s physical health, mental health, one’s relationship with an intimate partner, overall well-being and sense of self – than trying to sleep clothed. Sleeping nude should be encouraged and celebrated by the media, by medical professionals, by society at large, just as smoking cigarettes or overuse of alcohol are discouraged. Sleeping in the nude is the rational thing to do – trying to sleep while dressed is irrational.

    Similarly, this blog post clearly lists some of the areas of life, in public, where being nude is rational and not being nude is irrational. If we bathe nude, we should be encouraged to swim nude and to sun-bathe nude, and this should be the norm both at private beaches and public beaches, at private pools and at public pools. I was at a resort in Spain once many years ago, and at the pool and on the beach, the oddity was the rare individual who had a swimsuit or similar get-up on. What was typical, normal and accepted was being nude. And – I don’t think suggesting that these public spaces should be” clothing optional” is sufficient. “Clothing optional” means nudism and naturism are permitted, are tolerated. On the beach, in the pool and at poolside, in the public park, even on the dance floor or at the fishing hole or while walking in the woods, being nude should be encouraged, should be celebrated. Since life is so much better when lived in the nude, encouraging nudism and naturism is the rational way to think.

  3. I’d add any outdoor activity in warm weather, such as hiking or kayaking, would bring you a greater sense of connection with nature without clothes + benefits of sweating less (but then you may need more sunscreen and/or insect repellent).
    Social events would become only more social if we were naked – with the addition of body language and removal of class identity.

  4. Olympics and especially Gymnastics should not even be allowed to call themselves that unless they are naked.

    Naked should always be considered the default normal human condition, like horses, dogs, and every other species. Clothing should be considered an exception you do only when its too cold to be normally naked. That makes office work, customer service, and other jobs normally naked. That is, after all, our default condition. We have to do work to be anything else.

    Sssshhhh….everyone will be doing everything naked if you tell everyone about it!

    How I wish this did become the case. Nudists, naturists, naktivists and everyone else who values clothes-free living are in on the ‘secret’ earlier than everybody else.

    Doing all the great things outside while nude mentioned previously in this thread are indeed the best way to do them. Simply living nude is the best way to improve life. The comments about clothing giving us labels is for us a major reason for our love of nudism. Naked we’re just ourselves, our real and natural selves, we hide nothing physically from each other and it seems to follow that nudists hide far less of themselves mentally too

    Have you not seen Rugby? Probably the nearest equivalent as it’s nothing like soccer. Although, I’m not sure if I’d want to watch or play in a rugby match played in the nude.
