Social Issues in Regards to Voyeur Nudity
Nudity Shame (voyeur nudity)
Centuries of oppressive thought have convinced many people that the body is a shameful, worthless object that should be hidden. Nonsense! The human body is one of the most elegant, masterful and valuable things on earth. There are few things in existence which compare to it on an artistic, technical, or philosophical level. Celebrate the human body! It’s one of only a handful of truly unique creations.
Embarrassment (voyeur nudity)
Some people are afraid of running into someone they know while nude, or – worse – being seen by someone they know (or someone they don’t) while nude. Remember that you will be around many other people who will also be nude. You may be momentarily embarrassed at first – this is normal – but as you spend more time nude, you will realize that if everyone is nude, no one has cause for nudity-related embarrassment. As for the possibility that you’ll run into someone you know – well, if you like them, you’ve got something new in common to talk about? Besides, what is there to be embarrassed about? They are there, too, for the same reasons as you.
Defining Voyeurism :: Human sexual behavior involving achievement of sexual arousal through viewing the sexual activities of others or through watching others disrobe. To some extent voyeurism is widespread; various types of sexual display are a normal part of sexual attraction and mating behavior in most animals, including humans, but voyeurism is considered a deviant behavior when observation ceases to be merely one factor in sexual attraction and becomes the sole or primary source of gratification. The risk of being caught is an additional element in the excitement of the voyeur.

15 Top Reasons to Be Naked
1. It’s fun! Of course, it’s not for everyone, but then, neither is Madonna nor the Red Hot Chili Peppers, NBA basketball nor Batman. But once most young couples and boyfriends/girlfriends try it, they come back. Why? Because it’s fun. You probably know people who have vacationed at nude beaches, who skinny-dip in their backyard pool or who lounge around the house nude. Why not?
2. It’s healthy! Besides improved self-esteem, the sun relieves stress, provides you with Vitamin D, a tan with SPF 4 protection and helps clear acne. Naturists don’t overdo their time in the sun; they tan safely with a sunscreen.
Five Step Nudity
If you’ve just been waiting for encouragement to get naked from a mainstream source, especially if you are female, now you have it. Here are the 5 steps to a more naked you:
1. Expose yourself. Get comfortable being nude alone.
2. Get to know your body. Pay attention to your body’s sensory signals, especially when unclothed.
3. Look at yourself. Become familiar with – and accepting of how you look without clothes.
4. Move on to semi public nudity. In commonly acceptable circumstances, such as a locker room.
5. Graduate to social nudity. The real thing.
The feature, of course, is about body acceptance. The message has been repeated often enough, that people (women especially) are needlessly unhappy due to fears their bodies are somehow not “right”. But this time the way to overcome the problem is stated very clearly.
Our first ‘planned’ nude outing with friends happened this weekend.
Earlier in the week a cookout at our house had turned into an impromptu nude swim session in our pool. We discovered while not ‘social nudists’ per se that we all spent a lot of time that way around home.
