“They’re not helping society to deal with its sexual schizophrenia, they’re making it worse. Take a lesson from nudists. There really is such a thing as wholesome nudity.”
Following the recent nudity bans by social media outlets Tumblr and Chatspin, Cypress Cove Nudist Resort, one of the largest and most well-known nudist resorts in North America, is asking why social media platforms are including simple and artistic, non-sexual nudity in their bans of “adult content.”
“Nudists understand why Tumblr would want to ban pornographic media, but adding basic nudity to the ban sends the wrong message.”
“Since the American nudist movement began nearly one hundred years ago, nudists have worked diligently to educate society about the difference between showing the human body in a natural way versus exploiting it as a sexual object,” said Peter Sewall, General Manager of Cypress Cove Nudist Resort. “Members of Cypress Cove and our visitors understand this.”
What they do not understand, Sewall explains, is why social media outlets such as Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Chatspin, and many others include simple, artistic, or wholesome depictions of nudity as being pornographic. The nudist philosophy has historically stood against exploitative and sexualized depictions of the nude human body, and nudist resorts like Cypress Cove offer safe places where people can recreate, socialize, and relax in an environment that respects the human body and encourages right thinking.
