History of the invention of clothing | The Naturist Page


Clothing/body lice

There is a study that I was reading and says that Humans First Wore Clothing 170,000 Years Ago, some time after the second-to-last Ice Age that made living the nude life a little too cold for comfort. Before this time, clothing lice or body lice were non-existent until clothing came about in humans. Clothing lice first began to genetically diverge from human head lice. Needless to say, humans are responsible for causing the evolutionary process of head lice into clothing/body lice some 170,000 years ago. (long after humans lost their ape-like body hair.)


100,000 years ago

In Africa, humans survived for hundreds and thousands of years without clothing or body hair because of the practice of using fire when it became cold. It was only when clothing was invented that made it possible to invent new tools and migrate to colder or higher latitudes some 100,000 to 60,000 years ago.

But when did clothing because such a taboo that made it that one must be clothed when in public? Who sexualized the human body that today we are forced to be un-naturally covered up? I wish I had the answer to that question, but I don’t. If I find out the dates or how many years ago and why this came to past i’ll update this blog. Until then i’m stumped. If you have an answer with a reference, email me or message me. I’d love to hear from you.
