Confront and accept your nude body
Posted on April 8, 2010 by Ae'Jay Mitchell, Staff columnist

To be offended by the visual appearance of another person is prejudice, akin to racism. The right to exist, uncovered, should hold precedence over the right not to view this, for the objection is irrational. As an investigator of sexuality in our society, I often search for literature that offers insight into this intriguing world.

In our society of sex sells theories and one click orgasms, human nakedness has become linked with a certain decline of morality. From birth, our nudity is hidden behind the confines of diapers. Infants, whose normal curiosities drag them towards appendage exploration, are forcibly disciplined when their hands wander too far into their pelvic regions.

When young children’s curiosity leads them towards games of “I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours,” their recess is taken away and parents are warned of their precocious perversions (even though research has constantly shown that these games show no link to “adult-like” sexual explorations).

So, nakedness is primed as bad. Even the simple act of speaking about our sexual organs has been tainted by a need for competition or some need to create a social awareness piece.
So, Wake Forest, let’s talk about sex. Why is nudity so intolerable in our society? What makes it so wrong?

As I sat in Davis field considering those questions, I had an opportunity to consider those ideas. I find it extraordinary how swell of a lecturer nature becomes when I allow myself to hear and see.

Outside of the human, everything in nature is nude. It is bare. Its beauty can be breathtaking. However, nature cannot hide any of its imperfections. It is vulnerable.

Nudity is intolerable to humans because of how vulnerable it leaves us. I mean, who would want to purposely place themselves in a position where they are the most fragile. I find this to be the backbone of prejudice. Our fears inspire our dislikes of the abnormal.

Nudists, then, become impure to our society. They force others to accept the fact that we have vulnerabilities and that no layer of clothing will erase that fact. Layers of clothing merely cloak us from our sexual mistake, our physical flaws, and our inner demons. What happens if we allow ourselves to pull off those layers?

Now, Wake Forest, I am not suggesting that we all take our clothes off and live the nudist lifestyle. I am liberal in ideology, but I am not insane. I do challenge us to confront our issues with nudity.Begin to remove the definitions of nudity as disgusting, as wrong, as immoral.

Explore the brilliance of nudity simply because our nude body in many ways is who you are. Each dimple has a story.

Each curve provides a journey. Each freckle dances a memory. Your body is not a political statement, at its core. It is not a thinking sex toy, at its core. It is not a trophy of pristine achievement, at its core.

It is you.

Wake Forest, for the next month, I invite you to join with me in a journey towards a new liberation. Spend 30 minutes each day simply standing and loving your nudity. Do not judge what you witness, simply notice it.

This is not about seeking sexual pleasure in masturbatory practices. It is about standing, hearing and seeing your body just as we observe and enjoy the intricacies and beauties of nature.mYour body is nature.

It is broken, it is bare, it is raw; it is intriguing; it is beautiful; it is you! Delve not in to prejudice irrationalities! Ride the glories of brilliant enlightenment. I’m interested to see where this journey takes me!

Keep talking, Wake Forest!

What an excellent way to frame it.
