Additionally it is completely possible that the dearth of nudity in dressing rooms and showers has as much to do with the porn industry’s requirement for modesty as religious strictness. But regardless, it’s oppressive. And this repression affects boys and girls differently. It’s still girls’ bodies that confront the most powerful demand for perfection and are most often vulnerable to abuse and self-torture in the kind of eating disorders and cutting. Boys can still overcome the world through physical activities.

Equality between the sexes has for several decades been a part of first the governmental and political, and after that the private, Norwegian culture. The politics shifted us. It was not merely turned over to people, but was methodically worked into practical politics and in pedagogical approaches. We conquer the world through the body. How do women beat the world with invisible and taboo-afflicted bodies?

The Dilemmas of Naturism and Sexuality Openly Discussed:
Nudism and Sexuality is apparently a hot topic today. We at Naturist Portal get a lot of of emails and questions every single day relating to this very matter.
This week we got one such email, from a young man, who desired to know how do we separate naturism and sexuality?
His e-mail read as follows:
“How does one separate sexuality from nudity? Don’t get me wrong; I’m not assaulting naturists, I want to be one. I think my question is: When does it become too sexualized? I believe that’s what gets textile folks’s textiles in a group. Where’s the circumstance?”
What do you think of the questions?
They are fundamental and significant. Although most naturists may know the chief response to their own satisfaction, I’d like to begin with a bit of context, as the questioner asks. Let us consider the sex problem from a cultural viewpoint, and the difficulties it poses for naturists.

What is the result?
Because public expressions of explicit sexuality are ordinarily prohibited, in conventional mass market visual representation a couple of square (or round!) inches of body parts easily become the oversimplified, small focus for that ban. You know, You can not show that!
But nudity is everywhere in the media, we are told.
In click , just coy variations of nudity: a censored, fictitious nudity, with no showing this or that constantly operating, and an overwhelming emphasis on young women of a specific kind. All that should really annoy naturists.
But does it benefit naturism any?
Possibly, but it comes from an alternate location, the manipulation of the fixation with sex. That is targeted at the main decision makers: middle aged, middle class, heterosexual men.
Naturism’s actual nudity of various real folks doing anything but hanging around in passive poses would wreck the game by making the victimization considerably harder.
What’s the simplest means to assault that?
We could try logic! To most people, if there’s an image of sex, it must involve nudity. Consequently, if there’s an image of nudity, it must involve sex. Is that plausible?
Naturists know the answer to that.
I’d put this to non-naturists, then: If there’s an image of a man, it must be a human. Consequently, if there is an image of a person, it must be a man.
That illogicality is exactly like the one involving nudity.
Why don’t we simply say that nudism isn’t sexual and leave it at that?
Because it is complicated, and on a simple level I do not believe it’s true.
