Nudity is the natural state of human without the added layers of artifice called “clothes”.
Nudity is politicized, generally by religious groups, into “that which is not controlled”, “the sin-filled” and “profane”. To show skin is to challenge society; to show total skin is to say rules and norms do not, or should, not apply.
As with most things that might imply sexuality, nudity or the showing of any skin has special applications to women, who are, in western society, controlled in terms of what they may and may not show at any given time.
“Love her, love her, love her! If she favours you, love her. If she wounds you, love her. If she tears your heart to pieces – and as it gets older and stronger, it will tear deeper – love her, love her, love her!”—Great Expectations, Charles Dickens (via pleaseallowmetointroducemyself)
