Gymnophobia | The Naturist Page

Gymnophobia  is a fear (phobia) of nudity. Gymnophobics experience anxiety from nudity, even if they realize their fear is irrational. They may worry about seeing others naked, being seen naked, or both. Their fear may stem from a general anxiety about sexuality, from a fear that they are physically inferior, or from a fear that their nakedness leaves them exposed and unprotected.

Break free from being afraid of your own body and the fear of seeing others. Straight up nudity isn’t wrong, it’s completely natural. It’s only the Church, the government and the media who portrays nudity as something sexual. they are to blame. Humans have come a long way in history and guess what, most of us (depending how far north or south you are) the cold climates may not have had it as easy living in the nude. For the warmer climates most tribes or lifestyles lived nude and they are the best examples of how a natural culture without clothes can be seen as non-sexual.

Over time, society started wearing and making clothes but it was not because of body shame. It was to get warm when it was cold. It’s the church, government and the media who have a bad knack at relating nudity with sexualism. Just remember they are two completely different things and should not be related to one and other.

Don’t fear nudity, It’s actually a lot more healthy for you than you think. Good for the body, soul and mind. Once you start to live nude you will never want to go back. Think of all the money you also can save without buying expensive clothes, detergents, fabric softener, cling-frees, bleach etc etc etc. After all what is the difference if it’s a foot, a hand, a breast or a penis.. their just body parts.

Life is possible in a natural, nude fashion without making it sexual.

  1. While I totally support those who wish to be nude, I also feel a lot of gymnophobes are made to feel shame about wanting to keep their body private. It is possible to live a fulfilled life with gymnophobia, I feel I am well on my way there, though I wasn’t just a few years ago because of the stigma. I don’t see my gymnophobia as an aberration or a defect, it’s just part of who I am. I explain in this blog, though my life is better now than when I wrote the blog
