Why go around naked: a short history of nudism
Nudism appeared a very long time ago - one can say that the current arose with humanity itself. At the heart of this phenomenon lies not a vulgar and in some way completely perverted desire to admire the nude and show one's own (this is rather inherent in exhibitionists), but a completely healthy desire to get closer to nature.

The modern world is slowly beginning to get rid of the remnants of morality acquired by centuries: people are increasingly willing to arrange not only nudist beaches, but also whole tours of naturism. Today we will tell you where the nudists came from, what good is the practice of walking naked and whether it can lead to the liberation of the mind of all mankind in principle.

The sacred nature of nude nature was noticed in antiquity: it was not for nothing that the Greeks held all sports events completely naked. The very word "hymn" means "naked," and the modern word "gymnastics" comes from it.

In addition, most of the pagan rituals associated with fertility were also conducted in the nude. In many regions of ancient Greece, there was a practice of spiritual protection against a possible attack: on a monthly basis, young girls had to pass with a plow around the boundaries of the village.


The birth of nudism in India, too, was associated with mystical reasons. Another chronicler of Alexander the Great described the course of the so-called hyposnophorists - naked sages. At the moment there is still a certain sect of ascetics, which, in fact, is one of the branches of Jainism. Here nakedness is seen as liberation from the mortal world.


At the beginning of the 20th century, Puritan Germany surprised the rest of the world. Here the culture of a free body was born, which, as you know, is based on the constant nudism of its adherents. From this moment it is possible to count down the modern history of nudism, the founder of which was the geographer (and the convinced anarchist) Elise Reclus. He claimed nudity as a socially acceptable behavior that could lead the whole world to a new type of thinking.


Around the same time, the doctrine of naturism also penetrated Scandinavia. Here Soren Sorensen became his apologist, who in 1936 founded the first of its kind nudist club "Sunny Sports of the North". From here the current spread to France, where the doctors Gaston and Andre Duvill began the issue of the magazine "To live wisely" and founded the thematic resort "Heliopolis".

What are the advantages

First of all, nudism solves almost all the problems associated with the fear of society. Practicing naturism for several months of the year in a row, you certainly will not be shy about public appearances, and meetings in an unfamiliar company.

In addition, nudists, as a rule, begin to treat the environment very carefully. When a person does not have clothes, he is more receptive to the state of nature around him - the same principle is transferred to ordinary life.
