Or perhaps none of them. I think the good news is, though, that the aversion appears to be dissipating, which I believe is a good thing. It looks like it’s somewhat “acceptable” now for girls to have pubic hair, but on the other hand, maybe I am biased because I exist in a little pocket bubble of the web (perhaps similar to a naturist being surrounded by like minded people) where it is fine.

Right. I’m not opposed to body hair or having it all shaved offultimately, it’s a personal preference, and frequently one that I choose to approach differently depending on my own mood! Going back a bit, I’m curious if there’s been differences in reactions from girls and men to your website?
BtoB: Not a significant difference, I don’t believe. I would say that the bulk of my following is female but I haven’t any actual way to assess or establish that. I get emails from both parties and they seem to be shockingly similar.
I think guys cope with lots of these things also, either from a different approach or another point of view but similar things nevertheless. Guys have told me they adore it when their partner does not shave, women have told me they hate shaving, both have told me I’m awful and disgusting and need to “buy a shaver.”I think the reaction is similar regardless of gender.
So there is lots of stark contrasts then.
BtoB: I think with the internet you always get more contrast. The folks who don’t really have an opinion just scroll past it with no opinion, it is the ones who need to either praise you or shout at you who take the time to write.
As you’ve alluded to, our society has a lot of mixed up feelings about nudity in general, especially social nudity. As such, a lot of effort is put into splitting nudity from sexuality, which makes sense. When I visit a naturist club or plage with my family, the last thing I’d like to see is sexual activity. But occasionally, I believe that we try a little too challenging to disconnect the two and demonize sexuality. I was really interested by your answercan you discuss that a bit more and how sexuality plays a role in body approval, or being frank with your body?
BtoB: Yeah! That’s a question that I get a lot, and one of my favorite kinds of e-mails actually are from guys who feel the need to “apologize” to me because they found my blog and started masturbating to a photo or two and then began reading the text and ended up so on board with what I was saying that they felt guilty for using my pictures for self pleasure.
I completely get what you are saying about virtually demonizing sexuality and dividing nudity from it completely. I believe that the matters do not need to be totally independent, you can see a nude body and be turned on by it and it does not make you a bad person or a “creep” or anything.
Sexuality is such a complex subject, there is no way I could trust to truly know and comprehend it, but in my own experience it IS tied in to nudity even if we desire to fake it is not. There’s a susceptibility that happens when you’re nude that is so different than when you’re in clothes that it is natural to have http://nudism.name/nudist-video/voluptuous-nude-beach-babes.php when you’re nude or looking at someone naked.
I imagine I don’t think that sexuality is bad. I don’t think nudity is evil. I don’t think that joining http://x-nudism.com/community/nudist/cute-family-naturist.php of them is bad. If someone uses my photos or my body to masturbate to, good for them! They understand what they enjoy and they pleasured themselves and can return to whatever life they are living.
I see no harm in that. I believe that nudity doesn’t HAVE to be sexual, and I’ve been in situations where it certainly is not, but I do not believe it needs to be fully removed from sexual feelings either.
And I suppose I should clarify – those e-mails aren’t some of my favorites because they’re apologizing to me, but rather because they’re just such honest accounts of a lost person and it is amazingly endearing and somehow flattering.
That was really my next question. And the reality is that “context” is everything whether or not someone is clothed or naked.
BtoB: Absoluely. There are people in my life who I can take a naked bath in front of and it is entirely nonsexual (for me, anyhow) and then there are folks who I feel sexually charged around only when I take off my coat.
And obviously, aim a part of that as well. One of many questions you get from many would-be naturists is if seeing people bare might relieve desire. It definitely takes away a sexual trigger and forces you to reconsider sexuality, but I believe absolutely.
One of my favorite posts is when you remark about your period being a chance to reflect on what other “private pain” others are enduring. It seems that in many ways, this project has provided you a chance to gain empathy.
