Adam and Eve were created naked the garden – and they knew no shame. Modern day society has made the nude a shameful thing; it need not be. Thus, we return to nature – where we can be free, be who we are, bare our nude soul.
“The human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendor and its beauty… Nakedness as such is not to be equated with physical shamelessness… Immodesty is present only when nakedness plays a negative role with regard to the value of the person…The human body is not in itself shameful …. Shamelessness (just like shame and modesty) is a function of the interior of a person.”
—Pope John Paul II
“Sweet, sane, still Nakedness in Nature! — ah if poor, sick, prurient humanity in cities might really know you once more! Is not nakedness then indecent? No, not inherently. It is your thought, your sophistication, your fear, your respectability that is indecent. There come moods when these clothes of ours are not only too irksome to wear, but are themselves indecent. Perhaps indeed he or she to whom the free exhilarating ecstasy of nakedness in Nature has never been eligible (and how many thousands there are!) has not really known what purity is — nor what faith or art or health really is.”
– Walt Whitman
