No-one judges others in naturist surroundings, there's every shape you can imagine here, and if you think you look bad naked you won't look any better squeezed into a bathing suit. But the human body, in all it's imperfections is still perfect in itself, if you view it as a work of art, a sculpture, a painting . And as for being unnatural - there's no argument there. But what gets me is that people don't allow themselves to try it and enjoy it because they let the opinions of others determine what they should or shouldn't do. I don't "go naked" to shock or pose - I go naked because I enjoy being naked in nature under the sun and in the water - and I'm certainly not going to deny myself that pleasure just because others have hang-ups about it. . . where's the personal freedom in that?
So many of people's fears and anxieties are rooted in adherence to the demands of others, in shame and insecurity - even those who display strong characters outwardly can be plagued with self-doubt and shame which won't allow them to let their guard down. I don't want to be like that - who would? But who isn't?
If you want to get back in touch with the essence of life, then get yourself back to peace, freedom and nature - and if you want to do that, just shed your clothes.
