We treat nudity, and sexuality, as things which are really so special, we literally need to hide it from others as we fear that, exposed, everyone would make an effort to get it. In a land where it’s everywhere, nevertheless, there isn’t any need for such fear. In a way, many western cultures are already like this in relation to a lot of arab cultures, for example Saudi Arabia. There, they worry seeing anything but the slits of the eyes of girls for fear a man would be tempted by one. Here we are apalled at this thought that people would think that men should be quite so weak, but we do not live in Saudi Arabia; there, apparently, they’re; and it is engrained into them in their culture. We just have the same thought merely more reasonable; here it is fine to see not just a woman’s face, but her hair as well, and much more besides, but most tend to draw the line at some point of skimpy clothing in public. Nudists, ofcourse, go beyond even this, although normally only in some specific settings (at the very least nudists often avoid being bare where it’s not legal to do so).
I’d argue that the issue of sexuality is pretty similar, together with the one caveat that http://x-pot.com and pregnancy, STDs and STIs are also factors there. Regardless, my point stands; I think that with enough conversation people will understand that the advantages to being more liberal, both garments wise and sexuality shrewd, while at the same time educating ourselves more so that we avoid the errors that makes of some such puritans, will be better for everybody.
