A comparison of pro- and anti-nudity college students on acceptance of self and of culturally diverse others.

From: http://www.thefreelibrary.com/A+comparison+of+pro-+and+anti-nudity+college+students+on+acceptance+...-a0186015677

I found this an interesting read and many might find it wordy, but it's very interesting.  A couple of quotes:

Quote
Children in nudist families had significantly more positive self-concepts related to their physical appearance than children in non-nudist families, with boys from both types of families manifesting higher levels of self-concepts than girls.


Quote
Lewis and Janda (1988) surveyed college students on the frequency of seeing others nude during their childhood and sleeping in their parents' bed as children and on their parents' attitudes about sex. The results indicated that those who reported having slept in their parents' bed as children and who commonly were exposed to family nudity in childhood did not manifest higher levels of "sexual adjustment" concerns in young adulthood relative to those who either had not slept in their parents' bed as children or who were not exposed to family nudity. Moreover, exposure to parental nudity as a child was associated with increased comfort related to physical contact and affection with others, as well as an increased likelihood of engaging in casual sex as adolescents and young adults.

Interesting article. Quiet a long read, but fairly insightful. Shame the conclusions are a bit sweeping and doubtful, but some clever little research studies. Cheers Danee :)
