Sex and Nudity

Oh yeah, it’s one of those kind of posts.  Those posts that delve into something that makes most people uncomfortable.  Those kinds of posts where you are sitting there after it is done and thinking to yourself – what the fuck do I think about this?  I love these kind of posts.  I love them because they not only get people to think, but they also really look into something that I think is worth getting into.

To anybody who knows me very well, they know that I have a very profound love of sex.  My late fiancee was an amazing woman, and she taught her disciple well that sex was more than just the physical or the mental.  It was philosophical.  She got great philosophical joy from it.  She could ramble about the amazing aspects of the human condition that one found out through sex.  I used to think it was so amazing.  Wait, I still do, even after she is dead.  I have been passing along her lessons to others, like a friend of mine who is discovering her sexuality, and seems eager to learn about it, but smart enough to be smart with her body and how she expresses it.  A pity she isn’t into my type, because she’s a girl after my own heart.  I have a feeling that beneath her uncertainty, she has a vast reservoir of sexual potential and energy.  She’s going to go on and destroy some poor guy.  Wait, not poor.  I envy that bastard to death.

But yeah, I have a profound love of sex, and I have no real problem with nudity.  I have a friend who has been a snuggle-buddy of mine for a long time.  I have seen her naked many times, and it has never bothered me.  I like what I see.  I realize that we cannot be an item, nor friends with benefits (because of this other guy who tells her that he doesn’t want me having fun with her, even though he isn’t her fucking boyfriend…), yet I still have a healthy appreciation for what I see on her.

To that end, there was a guy who I used to hang out with back in high school who I kept wishing would be with me, so that I could see him naked.  I am a greedy son of a bitch after all. ^_^

I have a theory about nudity – I think that it has power over people.  Have you ever noticed that even the people who seem the most averse to nudity always are the way until they actually see somebody naked?  I mean, really, think about this – I knew this girl back in high school.  She used to hang out every day at home, butt-naked.  She was what I call an “at-home nudist.”  So were her parents.  She was raised believing that the body was a temple, and that she was not supposed to be ashamed of her body, but to revel in it.  And so she did.  She loved her body.  Very much so.  There were these two bitch girls who also went to high school.

They wanted to shame this girl, so they decided to come over with their two boyfriends.  The idea was that they would make her feel humiliated when they had their giant ape football player boyfriends hanging off of them.  Turns out, the shoe truly was on the other foot.  Along with not being ashamed of her body, she had a beautiful body, and it was well-maintained, in every facet.  So, when they showed up, the boyfriends ended up staring at her the whole time, and the girlfriends were humiliated.

Next day, they are at school.  They see the girl, now dressed very properly, and I kid you not, they were respectful of her.  They politely said hello to her, asked her how her day was, and seem to be some of the most upstart gentlemen I have ever met.  These are the same guys who not two days earlier said that all girls were sluts.  Now they were treating this girl like she was the queen of the world.  That was a life-changing moment to me.

Camille was also very fond of hanging out at home naked.  Once I got more acquainted with sexuality, I wasn’t freaked out by it anymore.  But seeing these two alpha-male types talking to this girl like she was the Queen of Sheba, it was eye-opening.

Back to the culture at large, I do think that nudity has power.  I mean, nudity has the power to propel somebody into celebrity status.  Paris Hilton did it.  It made Tommy Lee famous for his huge cock.  There is something about seeing people naked that makes us all pause and really not be able to go against them.  Why is that?

I genuinely am interested by this question.  What is it about seeing somebody naked that makes us unable to find a suitable attack against them.  I mean, the mainstream media went to town after the Janet Jackson episode at the Super Bowl, but really, how did that hurt Jackson?  It didn’t.  It didn’t hurt Timberlake’s reputation, either.  Both of them walked away with their reputation intact.  Hell, the internet had respect for Timberlake getting to be near Jackson’s milkshake.

What is it about seeing somebody naked that just stops us from having the ability to mock a person.  I mean, really, who has gone after Scarlett Johansson after the naked pictures of her got released?  Now that butt-naked photos of Kate Middleton, the woman who married the Prince of England…whatever his name is (like we care), what has been the reaction against her?  Nothing.

Of course, it can’t be denied that America has a massive fear of genitals.  Like I said, people in this country all over are totally averse to nudity.  It’s everywhere.  You hear all these Christian groups talking their stupid bullshit about what sluts girls are now.  The aforementioned at-home nudist girl, she got it all the time.  The same two guys I just talked about, they were among those who gave her shit.  But after they saw her naked, nothing.  Now, we must address that she could have been in danger of being raped, and I am very glad she wasn’t, but it can’t be denied that nudity has a power over people.

The same guys who will gay-bash all day will stare at the ass of a man in the shower, his naked body, not out of sexual attraction, but because there is some power that these men have over them for being brave enough to show themselves naked.  Maybe it is because we are so afraid of nudity.  Maybe it is because we are so uncomfortable with any kind of sexuality.  I have no idea what is.  But there is a power that the naked body has over all of us, and it needs to be addressed.  If, for no other reason than to ponder how it works.

As for me, I still love sex, and the nude female form is the most beautiful thing there is.  We need to get over this childish fear of sex and nakedness, because it is fucking awesome!

Until next time, a quote,
