Equality between the sexes has for several decades been part of first the governmental and political, after which the personal, Norwegian culture. The politics altered us. Women’s right to have control over their own bodies has been a fundamental part with this. It was not merely turned over to people, but was systematically worked into practical politics and in pedagogical approaches. We overcome the world through the body. How do girls overcome the world with invisible and taboo-stricken bodies?

The Problems of Naturism and Sexuality Openly Discussed:
Naturism and Sexuality appears to be a hot issue these days. We at Nudist Portal get a lot of of e-mails and questions each day relating to this very matter.
This week we got one such e-mail, from a young man, who needed to understand how do we different nudism and sexuality?
His e-mail read as follows:
“How does one separate sexuality from nudity? Don’t get me wrong; I am not assaulting naturists, I want to be one. I think my question is: When does it become too sexualized? I believe that’s what gets textile people’s cloths in a group. Where’s the context?”
Rather than give a straight answer to those questions, Jordan Blum determined to break them down a bit in a dialogue with Paul Rapoport, the former, longtime editor of Going Natural.
Below is the Q & A Between Jordan and Paul about nudism and sexuality:
What can you think of the questions?
They are fundamental and important. Although most naturists may know the principal response to their own satisfaction, I Had like to begin with a bit of context, as the questioner asks. Let us contemplate the sex issue from a cultural perspective, and the problems it poses for naturists.
American culture, fed if not directed by its mediamovies and pop music together with communications and advertisinghas turned sex into big business and a big obsession. To use that fixation for commercial and political ends on a large scale, sex has to be oversimplified and narrow.

What is the result?
Because public expressions of explicit sexuality are usually prohibited, in traditional mass market visible representation a few square (or round!) inches of body parts readily become the oversimplified, small focus for that ban. You know, You can’t show that!
But nudity is everywhere in the media, we’re told.
In basic mass media, just coy variations of nudity: a censored, untrue nudity, with no revealing this or that constantly managing, and an overwhelming emphasis on young women of a particular sort. All that should truly annoy naturists.
But does it help naturism any?
Possibly, but it comes from a different area, the exploitation of the fixation with sex. That is geared toward the main decision makers: middle-aged, middle class, heterosexual men.
Naturism’s real nudity of various real folks doing nudismporn but hanging around in passive poses would bust up the game by making the exploitation considerably more difficult.
What is the easiest way to assault that?
We could attempt logic! To most people, if there is an picture of sex, it must affect nudity. Hence, if there is an image of nudity, it must involve sex. Is that reasonable?
Naturists understand the answer to that.
I’d put this to non-naturists, afterward: If there is an image of a guy, it must be a human. Therefore, if there’s an image of a person, it must be a guy.
That illogicality is the same as the one involving nudity. Sadly, logic is an enemy of forces of mass manipulation.
Why do not we simply say that naturism is not sexual and leave it at that?
Because it is complicated, and on an easy level I don’t believe it is authentic. If it were, there would be no quotas on single men at private naturist places, no gay naturists as different groups, etc. The issue may well be: life is sexual.

Just how do nudists deal with all that in practice, rather than theory?
