Nudity is natural. We were born that way and as much as possible, we should roam that way. If you live in a northern climate you only get 3 months per year but if you are in the southern region of the United States, your naked time increases. Take advantage of it. H
ere are 10 reasons why you should go naked right now.
1. Naked People Have More Fun
Seriously, folks, can you really have a bad time when voluntarily nude? No. The more you are naked the more you will be comfortable with your own body. the more you will know your own body. The psychological benefits of living in the nude are enormous.
This might sound backwards but by increasing skin time you increase the fun of clothes time. It won’t be about hiding bad feature on your body, rather, celebrating the features on your body. It’s not about fitting into the latest style, it’s about enhancing the style that is unique to you.
3. Penis Size, Breast Size
Males worry about the size of their penises. If you think Aboriginal tribes men walk around worrying about the size of their penises, you are wrong. Women worry about the size of their milk sacs. If you think Aboriginal women walk around worrying about the size of their breasts, you are wrong. These mentalities are a cancer perpetuated by a marketing culture that profits from insecurities. Your penis is awesome. Your boobs are great. Start showing it off.
4. You will be healthier
Mentally for sure you will be healthier. But the benefits of being physically aware of all aspects of your body should not be lost. I often get a belly. And my ass can balloon to sizes unfitting for my form. By going nude more often, I will notice this before I have to watch a Richard Simmon’s month long marathon. Yes, I like to sweat to the oldies…but not because I HAVE to.
5. Vitamin D
More than anything else humans are seriously lacking in the amount of Vitamin D our bodies need. We our outdoor creatures, yet spend most of it indoors. We are naked beings, yet spend the little bit of outside time clothed. Take advantage of the sun and your skin and cut down on the vitamin D pills.
Living in Brazil, I know somebody who actually grew up in the Amazon Rain Forest. His land was taken over by business men of some type and he was displaced. I’ve never seen him wear shoes. I’ve seen him kick broken glass bottles out of his way on the street. His feet seem more flat and much tougher. This is how we should be and we would be healthier for it. Barefoot running helps to lower the risk of Alzheimer’s in adults. Barefoot walking or running helps in vital stimulation of our brain. The stimulation, which is created in the sole of the foot encourages our brain to boost more neuron connections. It also helps to increase brain flexibility
7. Be A Kid Again (#freethenipple)
My toddler loves to be nude. She loves to play in the sand nude. She loves to fart my my face, while nude. She just loves to be naked. It breaks my heart to think that soon she will have to cover her nipples because women’s bodies have been exploited as digitized sex toys. The #freethenipple campaign is real and let’s hope women’s nipples can be free again.
8. Improve Fertility
Many men might be afraid of improved fertility but it is indicative of overall health. Wearing underwear and jeans can reduce sperm count and lead to other issues by killing nerve receptors.
9. Be Your Own Club
You don’t have to joint a nudist colony. You don’t have to engage in sex orgy’s. You don’t even have to be a hippy. Nudity is not weird. I love clothes. I like privacy. But I also like the option of saying, “Not today!” Start walking around nude and maybe your partner will join in on the fun. And yes, It will lead to more fun.
10. It’s not Perverted
Perversion happens as a result of wearing clothes. Because we don’t see the naked bodies of others, when we do it triggers sexual appetites. If nudity, such as women’s nipples, were more common it would be no big deal. Nudity is the opposite of perversion. It is only through a truly twisted society that the opposite it true.
