Family Nudity

Most people, who oppose Family *****, do so as an extension of their own conservative views on sexuality or simply as a knee-jerk reaction *****d do not have valid scientific rea*****ns for such opposition. In my opinion there is no harm in family nudity, especially if it is practiced ***** the privacy of one's home and *****es not have any sexual overtones to it.

Whatever l*****tle research is available on the ********** indicates that children who grow up in nudist families are much more comfortable with their bodies ***** their ***** as adults. They ***** apt to exhibit higher levels of self-esteem and self-c*****fidence. On the o*****r hand, children who have been brought ***** *****out any exposure to family nudity at home are more likely to suffer from feelings of shame about ***** genitalia ***** children and from sexual anxiety as adults. Such feelings ***** shame ***** sex may adversely affect their adult *****ual relationships **********. To ***** mind, *****thing which helps children to develop normally with a he*****lthy attitude about sex should be welcomed rather than condemned.

Although I fully support the concept of a certain amount of family ***** at *****, ***** do have my reservations regarding unrestrained "social" nudity whereby people practice a "***** lifestyle" in the company of others, such as at beaches, clubs, or gatherings outside the privacy ***** ***** homes. The reason why I ***** "at home nudism" is because ***** am convinced about its positive effects on the normal development of children. I do ***** c*****sider "Social Nudity" appropri*****e ***** ***** believe ***** it does not serve any useful purpose apart from enabling the "nudists" to make a political statement about their beliefs. Such public display ***** ***** also tends to create a backlash against more moderate forms of family nudity and gives credence to the view about ***** being "odd."
