If a top deputy at the San Diego City Attorney's office really means what she said in statement filed with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals late last month, fundamental change in enforcement of nudity laws could impact tourism, the swimwear industry, clothing retailers -- even Comicon.
But did you know that in Singapore you can't be naked in your own home?!?! Or that until the early 19th century, the country was (possibly) governed by Nevernudes? You didn't, did you? Yes, turns out there are still a lot of weird nudity laws like Singapore's on the books, all around the world.
Frankly, I'm over abs -- my own and everyone else's. It's not that I have anything against six-packs on those who are blessed with them. (I'm generally a few beers short myself.) I'm just tired of having them constantly shoved in my face. (No offense, Nick Jonas!)
Of all the types of porn there are -- amateur, B&D, S&M, A&E, three-way, girl-on-girl, three girls, one guy, his mother, and her sister, that crazy shit they do in Germany -- my least favorite is something called "revenge porn."
Is the bare human form still culturally offensive? For many the answer is a resounding no. With today's proliferation of nudity inclusive television, has nudity returned to its post-taboo status or are television contestants just more liberal than most?
After the recent outbreak of leaked nude celebrity photos, I took to the street to capture the thoughts of the people! Is it okay that these pics were released? Did people look at them anyway? All I know is that dick pics are in high demand.
Why do we normalize forced and involuntary pornography of women? Why do we consistently participate in the exploitation of women, and why do we turn the ownership of the female body into a spectator sport?
I also believe there is a time and place for everything, including where and when to bare your body in social situations. Do it because your are comfortable with your body. Don't do it if may makes those around you uncomfortable or someone is pressuring you.
When going nude in any setting I think most of us initially worry about being judged and feeling vulnerable in that there is no place to hide our insecurities - they are totally exposed for everyone to see.
