While I generally agree with what your are saying I do have one caveat. Por nography is harmful to kids (and adults as well). In your face por no cheapens sex. It serves to turn sex into a spectator sport and removes any semblence of love or comitment. Nudity on the other hand I see as quite beneficial and has redeaming value. I do not see nudity as harful to children att all. Nudity comes very naturally to children, it is only when adults get involved that the site of nude body becomes shameful and something to hide away from young eyes. I have made no effort to hide my naked body from any family member. I have a 16 year old daughter, two granddaughters under 9 and a grandson that is 10. My older chidlren are 30 and 27. I do not hide from them and seeing nude adult male bodies has not harmed them one iota.
All of the harm comes from others that do not share the same view and make the children think that there is something wrong or perverted about a nude body and it should be kept hidden all of the time. That mentality serves to mess up the minds of the kids and turn them into guilt ridden adults.
In general I do not think that kids should be protected from all the ways of the world, but should be exposed to everything in the world but att a pace they can understand and be comfortable with. Parental guidence is key, although their are plenty of parents that need to be guided as well. The best method to protect and help your kids grow into adults is to listen to them, answere their questions no matter how uncomfortable the question may make you feel and always keep the lines of communication open with them. Remember; God gave us two eyes, two ears and one mouth. We should use them in that proportion. See what is going on in their lives, listen to what the are saying and asking and give them as little information as they need to have to get their questions answered and give them guidence.
You know, until a few minutes ago I was opposed to the idea of kids being allowed into forums where EXPLICIT photos were likely to be found. But its not the kids that is the problem, its the photos. Obviously this is hard to police on a daily, or minute-by-minute basis, but as the moderator of another Group elsewhere I think it has to be done. My other group's Host requires moderators to monitor their membership and reject anyone under the age of 18 from participating, but that is a lot of work. I do it because the Host requires it as part of the Terms or Use, but there should be forums for kids BECAUSE they simply will not ask their parents about some subjects! And there are equally as many parent who will not volunteer information, even when they think their kids ARE or MAY BE interested in a subject, or when it comes up on the news, etc. - - - The other approach is to allow children to view every type of content and MAKE CERTAIN they know to ask a parent or responsible adult when they see QUESTIONABLE content (isn't that why we have the word?). - - Unfortunately I think most parents reaction is to say, 'Ohh no!' and click the window away! Its like NOT educating kids about real life's dangers, mysteries and pleasures, which leaves them in more danger than being exposed to the content in the first place! - - - So I suggest the entire educational "system" needs reform, but I acknowledge its only going to come in drips and drops with plenty of annoyance, irritation and sadness in the meantime!
hey everyone, intersting reading. Please visit our Australian nudist forum too. I think it is great to be nude. As for fakes, it is best to use webcam on me$$enger, that sorts the real ones from fakes, as you know pics can be borrowed..
Actually, I have more concern about guys n'gals on this website that do not post their photo's. They are the ones that seem paranoid.
What is it they are hiding from ?
I never trust msgs or comments from anyone that doesn't have the guts to have their photo online. They always seem to have a TON of excuses, none of which are valid, personally, I think it's a waste of time them even being on here. What is it they are expecting?
The women turn out NOT to be women, and the guys, more often than not turn out to be pervs. Some of the perverted msgs I have received from this website are all from people that don't have photos in their profiles. As for the guy showing his erection, he's not ashamed of it, what kind of secrets are you photo-less people concealing ?????? Get a grip and get a life !
yes my kids go with me all the time, Safety is a concern, the naturist lifestyle is based on the premise of nudity without sex... rob is not a naturist, sitting there with an erection a true pervert. this site is full of fakes
I am with you gtaylor, I am seeking some nudist penpals/friends. seems I get winks asking for pics. so I will add one. I am not a paying member sorry, wish i can add my addy.if anyone wants to be friends. I am in fla. and is a member of cypress cove.
well if her parents are ok with it i done see why she cant post on here if my daughter wanted to i would let her too. i think her family should all post something too just to see if they are on the level .
Pity gtaylor's photo isn't real -- I've seen that one in many a profile on yarhell and m$nmessenger. Even the apparently real notcieboards are being infected with people not revealing their true selves.
I have been a nudist all of my life, mostly alone. My gf & I go to a resort near by as much as possible. She is new to the lifestyle & really enjoys it. I introduced her to nudism for the first time on New Years Eve this year by taking her to the resort for the N.Y.E party & dance.
Oh Hi, i am interested in naturisim, i have some experience in my country Spain, but I live in London now and didnt meet enyone into it. Wishing to meet nice, educated, healthy people to go bared with and to have nice times. Thanks
