ffk-nudistsIt reminds me of what I read in one of Frank Herbert’s Dune books once. I love google, it found it for me. Here it is:
There was this drylander who was asked which was more important, a literjon of water or a vast pool of water? The drylander thought a moment and then said: “The literjon is more important. No single person could own a great pool of water. But a literjon you could hide under your cloak and run away with it. No one would know.”

We treat nudity, and sexuality, as things that are so precious, we literally have to hide it from others as we fear that, exposed, everyone would try to get it. In a land where it is everywhere, however, there is no need for such fear. In a way, many western cultures are already like this in relation to many arab cultures, such as Saudi Arabia. There, they fear seeing anything but the slits of the eyes of women for fear that a man would be tempted by one. Here we are apalled at this idea that people would think that men should be so weak, but we don’t live in Saudi Arabia; there, apparently, they are; and it’s engrained into them in their culture. We just have the same idea only more moderate; here it’s fine to see not just a woman’s face, but her hair as well, and more besides, but most tend to draw the line at some point of skimpy clothing in public. Nudists, ofcourse, go beyond even this, although generally only in certain settings (at the very least nudists tend to avoid being nude where it’s not legal to do so).

I would argue that the issue of sexuality is fairly similar, with the one caveat that children and pregnancy, STDs and STIs are also factors there. In any case, my point stands; I think that with enough dialogue people will realize that the advantages to being more liberal, both clothing wise and sexuality wise, while at the same time educating ourselves more so that we avoid the mistakes that makes of some such puritans, will be better for everyone.
