Nudism (naturalism) has been a center of attraction forever - be it the sidelong, scandalized glares or the welcoming, liberal brouhaha around it - Nudism, let's face is famous, or infamous. Whether you like it or not is irrelevant, fact is: you cannot ignore it.So here's a list of myths that have been built around nudism over time. What isnot openly understood, is mostly classified 'exotic', 'occult' or even as some other "not so-very-cool" names.Let's explore some of more famous misconceptions surrounding Nudism - the lifestyle.http://www.naturistspace.org is the largest nudist dating site and meeting pointfor nudists in the world, offering resources such as nudist blogs and live chats as well as the daily nudist news.Misconception No 1: Nudists 'do it' everywhereCome on, really?! This is probably the most hyped and belligerent of all Nudismmisconceptions - that they do it everywhere. Needless to say, it's so not the truth.Truth however is: Anyplace where Nudism is practised, any exhibitionist and voyeuristic practise is 'strictly' prohibited. Anyone who flouts these rules is immediately expelled - and never allowed to re-enter. A nudist resort does not allowany more explicit sexual activity than any other public setting.Now - you're a little more enlightened. But there's more...Misconception No 2: Nudism has just one primary goal: Sexual StimulationSo there goes the second one! Most people who try nudism are surprised - and they really are - at the lack of absolute sexual arousal. Granted there may be instances where this is not true - but for those who try nudism for holistic purposes and not as another sex game - the above is true. We promise.Look at it this way - from a nudist point of view, one tends to feel more arousal/attraction in a pool where people are dressed in bathing suits owing to stripsof clothes trying to hide body parts that draw attraction. But when you're nude, and so is everyone, you tend to notice less!Misconception No 3: All Nudists are super hotties!Now that's just plain dumb propaganda. Are all lawyers hot? Or all accountants?You've really got to hit the internet to look for not-so-airbrushed pictures ofcelebrities to find that not even all celebrities are real life hotties!Nudists have all kind of bodies - just like people in real life do. There are varied shapes and sizes and girths. There are toned muscles as there is flab.Nudism my friends, ain't no beauty contest!Misconception No 4: Nudism is: Just for adults!Actually no. Considering those who practise it as a life style, nudism welcomesfamilies to bring their kids along. And given this, let's not forget to note that children are the most enthusiastic nudists because they've haven't yet been fully initiated into the 'feeling shame' business.However, children are allowed only when they are accompanied by their parents or
guardians and there is a strict look out for anyone who may be trying to take advantage of the children. Thank goodness for that!Misconception No 5: Nudists stay sans clothes - all the freaking time!Ok. Maybe there is some truth to this one. Nudists do prefer to stay sans clothes as much as possible, resorting to clothing only when the weather is too cool etc. Nudist kids who aren't toilet trained yet are required to wear swim shorts or diapers in a pool.Misconception No 6: Nudists are depraved sexual deviant weirdoes.That's simply spiteful to say in the least. Nudists are an extremely open people- believe it or not, that's what Nudism is about - openness, in more forms thanjust one.Nudists are regular people who like their birthday suits more than average people do, that's all. In fact they are as repulsed by pornography or sexual immorality as may be someone who doesn't practise Nudism at all.Misconception No 7: Nudists are asexual.So some people believe that since nudists treat nudism as "so-not-sexual-thing",they're completely off sex! That's just - well, not true.Nudists have sex too. Like everyone else. They have children. It's just that they do not include their sexual activities in their life styles for two reasons: one, they don't want to corrupt the healthy nudist family environment they try tocreate, and two - they don't want the world outside to attach the sex-stigma tonudism. Something that most people are ready to believe about Nudism anyway!Misconception No 8: Nudists have absolutely no sense of privacy at all!Let us throw a question at you: Just because you're nude in bathroom do you loseall of your sense of privacy? No, right? So the Nudists play nude wherever theydo - but that doesn't mean they don't have a sense of privacy. In fact Nudistsare camera shy and shy to most of the world outside in general.In most Nudist setting taking pictures is prohibited and taking pictures of children is also very strictly forbidden!Misconception No 9: Nudism is illegal.So most people think that places where Nudism is practised are hubs of sexual voyeurism and deviancy and such places are kept a secret for allowing this lifestyle in fear of law agencies tracking and prosecuted them.Well, can't speak for every Nudist facility in the world, but in most places laws do not target nudism. In most countries being nude in a public place is an offence and law agencies generally treat nudist venues as being exempt from the lawsince the venue is kept out of public view and anyone who visits the venue explicitly agrees to get nude.However there are places where this misconception is an actual truth: Nudism isofficially prohibited in the State of Arkansas... and Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq.Misconception No 10: Nudism are aliens and the mother ship is resting somewherein Texas!
