Title: Normalizing Nudity Youtube channel
Post by: NaturalInNY on December 14, 2020, 11:08:21 pm
https://www.youtube.com/c/NormalizingNudity/videos

Just found this channel. Just went up in October. Mostly interviews, with a cooking video and a silk climbing video. Hopefuly Youtube doesn't can it. They've been better about nudity, and Naturisme-TV has been up for a while as has a Vivrenu-TV account. But they canned Hector Martinez a while back so their rules seems very arbitary.

Anyway, hopefully it stays up.

I like these videos and their format. Nothing fancy, just a microphone and a nude person talking. That really is trying to normalize nudity with basically just talking.
But I do see this channel getting taken down since it is all frontal nude women. So enjoy it while you can.

I think they should broaden their content, if it's just a monolog of a not famous person, why would anyone who is not interested in the fact that they are naked, watch?

If you really want to normalize it, the nudity shouldn't be the primary thing.

i'm pleasantly surprised the channel is so popular, but also disappointed that a huge portion of their views are from people who completely miss the point. the same applies to a lot of content made with normalizing nudity in mind, and that's really a shame.

Nice find! I hope this channel stays up. It does suck that they took Hector's channel down; and I can't even find him on Vimeo, so that's strange. But great find, and let's hope this one stays for good!    :like

that seems true judging from the comments. there are hundreds of thousands of views but relatively few likes or comments, but the comments that are there are just kind of a mix of wholesome support and, uh, unwholesome support:

They really should have someone moderate their comments. Andnmeybe see what they can do with their content to convey the message more clearly

This looks pretty cool, but I don't know, the execution still comes off really "Casting Couch" to me. Maybe it's the hotel room and the interview process instead of being outside in nature, and them just talking about themselves. Also not too much diversity in body types. A great idea, but they could really work on it to make it fantastic.

Yeah I would like more diversity in future videos and the change of environment would add much more life and color but since this channel barely started two months ago. I'm guessing that they might add more videos when they have more recognition and when the temperature/weather makes it easier to be nude outside, especially without pandemic conditions

I had a look at it.  The videos are very well done and professional.  However, I commented on one of them that ought to have more guys and older people and people with less than idealistic body shapes and sizes featured on it too.

Yes! If you're going to normalize nudity, you have to consider that not everyone is a woman, young, and possesses a near perfect shape. But kudos when they did a video of a 18 year old that was not like the rest of the women, physically and a transexual.

I think that some people would only watch them just because they are naked and don't take nudism seriously. Those like us, are the primary audience to learn about naturism, and not as some guy trying to be pervy.

the one with the guy Devon has 99k views and the other guy has 186. The average view for the rest is around 356. The only other ones are Daniella and Christina which have 17 and 6.5 million views as of this time of writing.
Also after watching one of the videos a few did appear on my YouTube homepage recommended, so the algorithm does have something to do with it

that brings us back to the topic of naturist women, or at least women who aren't ashamed of their nudity. textiles and naturists alike, even on this forum, are guilty of treating them differently and giving them more exposure, not necessarily because they care about ideas or personality or whatever, but because they're "eye candy".
they please a lot of men who find imagery of women more visually and/or sexually appealing, and don't give a hoot about what they're saying. this kind of objectification intertwines with a lot of other prejudices, and it's partly why we see so many conventionally attractive white women on the home page, or in marketing in general. we need to work together to confront these things in our subconscious and consider how to actually be relatable rather than "idealistic" at best
(please take this with a grain of salt, i'm not a theorist, or, you know, a woman)

Well, I am a woman, and these are definitely things that bother me in the way naturism is marketed by other naturists, and I think in my case it makes me insecure about joining in with other naturists. I can also see through it straight away - I know slim pretty young white women are not the norm in naturism and that all body types and genders are active in naturism (with males being the majority). So to see that the rare slim young women are so valued that they are put front and centre in marketing naturism does seem to me such a blatant attempt at having "sex appeal" that it puts me off.

I appreciate that they have a few videos that aren't just "skinny pretty cis white woman", but that still seems to be the majority. They definitely should find a way to diversify more. Or heck, find a better place to film. The random undecorated room gives me weird porn studio vibes. A forest or something might be better if weather permits.

Unfortunately I gotta agree. Hot/attractive girls will spread the message faster. But there needs to be better content and moderated comments. Right now too many perverts there for the wrong reason.

However, the comments need to be moderated. All of them are missing the point. This is a problem. Whenever people try to normalize nudity by putting it into videos, there are always people that ruin it.

Been a while since y'all got too naive about a video with nudity in it. It's not showing up properly here because it's age restricted. At least here in the states, that means we have to go to youtube to watch it. Also, the comments are what they are because this is the gateway to a sex-worker's patreon. The yoga shit is just the tamer content that homegirl puts out. (It's literally the only video on that channel) Grimey as their comments are, they're probably the same ones putting down the money for her other content. Nothing wrong with the content in and of itself, but that's what's going on here. I mean, shit, the camera angles are male-gaze as hell as it is.

How do y'all keep doing this? Step your game up already!

It's a new EU rule, if I remember correctly, part of making platforms responsible for the content they contain. As far as I know, you need to provide ID to prove your age or connect a payment service(I assume, based on the fact that I haven't been asked and my siblings have)
