How Lena Dunham Gets Naked On TV and Why We Love Her For It

Lena Dunham Naked On TV – Now love Her!
Lena Dunham Naked – Should youn’t know her, Lena Dunham is the star and writer of an HBO television series called Girls. The show is only in its 2nd season, but went from zero to celebrity in about .
The assumption of the show has been compared to Sex and the City, just this time the girls are 20-somethings and dealing with a considerably more tumultuous period of their lives as they attempt to transition into the “real world.” Yes, it looks like merely another chain about young, white, privileged girls, but you still ought to give it focus. Why?
Because Lena Dunham has an average-looking body and is not afraid to expose it, affirming to girls everywhere that it is acceptable to be typical and also NOT be embarrassed of your body!
And I do not mean average in a negative way. Average as in regular. Typical. Expected. Outside of the tiny percent of girls who are tall, wafer thin, cellulite-free, enormous-breasted and have no curves (otherwise known as the scantily clad girls who dominate the media, marketing, film, TV, etc).
Lena Dunham hasn’t been hiding her body as other “defective” girls do on TV. As her character Hannah, she is been becoming naked. The sex scenes provide lots of chance for nudity, but in the newest episode we also see her wearing a see-through mesh top in public. (And Hannah is not the only one getting naked.
In a season one episode, “The Crackcident,” there’s some shocking nudity when Shoshanna, another of the girls, ends up on a footpath in Brooklyn with no pants. Her nudity is never discussed then, or later in . I suppose the writers are saying, “hey nakedness a part of life.” Since we all have nude bodies, it’s.)
Lena Dunham Naked
But Lena Dunham’s nude scenes and naked body has generated some strong and affecting reactions from critics. Um, and somebody hates her for it? Dunham is a menace to the regular order of things, merely by being her real self.
She was also criticized for wearing this ensemble at an event in L.A.
“I ‘m anti-slacks.” -Lena Dunham (pictured right, with no trousers)
Dunham’s answer was: If Olivia Wilde had gone to a party in little short pants, she might have been on a ‘strange dressed list’ or been told her outfit was cute. I don’t think a girl with tiny thighs would have received such no-slacks interest. I think what it actually was ‘Why did you all get us look at your thighs?’ My answer is, get used to it because I am going to live to be 100, and I ‘m going to reveal my thighs every day till I die.”
Just by exhibiting her thighs, she is challenging the same answer to nudity that naturists cope with: “Ewww! I do not wanna see that!” A post about Girls’ casual nudity even quoted Nicky Hoffman of The Naturist Society about how nudism empowers girls.
It always appeared to me like a paradox that it is not difficult to walk the streets among average Americans and realize that most people aren’t hiding the superb skinny idealized body type under their clothes. And yet to be confronted with this fact will be to cause shock, controversy, and disgust. Maybe I simply underestimate the brainwashing done by the media and advertising sector.
But what’s amazing is the manner Lena responds to these attacks on her body. She doesn’t give a crap! She’s not dieting, not covering up and not apologizing for the way she appears.
Her body has created not just criticism, but also some truly excellent discussion around important questions – Why does nudity make folks feel disgust? What is wrong with showing an alternate body type on TV? Why does it have to mean anything?
Here are two quotations from articles that try to address these questions. In the first, Helen Charman suggests that people’s negative reaction to nudity comes from the “closeness” of seeing all the imperfections, but we have to start seeing bodies as something other than objects of beauty or sexual desire.

“Naked as We Came: What Lena Dunham’s Nudity Says About Us” by Helen Charman, Huffington Post
And a 2nd quote from “The Audacity of Lena Dunham, and Her Admirable Commitment to Making Us Look At Her Naked” by Lesley on xoJane
Truth is, we had all probably be a lot less neurotic about our own bodies if we could get used to seeing and accepting the natural variety in other people’s – without shame, and giving no fucks.”
We want more of Lena Dunham nude on TV! I trust she will keep getting naked and keep challenging the status quo. (We also clearly need more folks to attempt nudism, but we all know it is simpler to place a greater assortment of nude girls on TV than to get the audience themselves to attempt social nudity.)

Bonita and Juniper Woods Fkk Resorts!

[ 7 01 2012 UPDATE: Sadly, Bonita Nudist Club has since been sold and became a textile family campground. We will miss you Bonita! ]
Naturist Parks Tour – To continue the story of our Fkk Club Tour & Road Trip, our next spot was Bonita Nudist resort or better yet – nudist parkIn contrast with Shining Remainder, Bonita is an extremely pastoral, peaceful place, located in the Catskills in upstate NY.
Annie, who runs and manages Bonita with her husband Jerry, toured us around through the wood and quaintly decorated RV sites. Later we set up our tent again at an enclosed woodsy spot. Afterward we took a swim in the very clean and peaceful lake (see pictures above) and passed some time with a few folks also taking in the sunshine. They also have an outdoor pool (not yet opened due to the recent thunderstorms) and free teen nudist pics situated in a gazebo outside.
A potluck clothes optional dinner was taking place at 6 o’ clock, and though we didn’t have anything to bring, everyone welcomed us. I discovered the owners in addition to members at Bonita to be the most amiable people of all the places we have been to lately.
We dined in their outside pavilion with some fantastic food, and later on people assembled around their big fire pit to discuss and appreciate the summery night. (They also have an indoor fkk clubhouse.) Seeing as their bathhouse had a tree on it from the last set of storms, I made us sit in the car for a bit. Seemed like a good decision when the hail came.
In summary, we had an overall very positive experience at Bonita, and enjoyed the more relaxing and secluded encounter in nature. We definitely recommend Bonita fkk club as an excellent nude weekend getaway.
[UPDATE: We will miss you Bonita!]
On Monday we decided to visit Juniper Woods, situated on the other side of the Catskills, before heading back home to cloth city.
They also serve breakfast in the morning, but not dinner. (Costs are acceptable). From what we saw, Juniper has a nice atmosphere and scenic property. Its facilities include a pool, hot tub / dialogue pool, large clubhouse with games and a pool table.
Near the entrance there are ponds you can fish in. Though there are little kids and families who are members, it’s allowed as long as it isn’t obscene Very progressive!
So that was the end of our clothes optional mini tour. As I wasn’t happy about getting re dressed on a hot sunny day, Jordan proposed I drive nude and see how long I could get away with it. But one ticket being enough for that day, I got dressed.

Margaret Miles notes that “nude baptism was observed as one of the two fundamental elements in Christian
initiation, together with the invocation of the Trinity. . . . In the fourth century instructions for baptism throughout the
Roman Empire stipulated naked baptism without any suggestion of initiation or change from earlier practices.” 219

Copying Christ despoiled of His garments on His Cross, He Who by His nakedness despoiled the principalities and

say: “How wonderful! You were naked before the eyes of all and weren’t embarrassed! Really you bore the picture of
the first-formed Adam, who was naked in the garden and was not ashamed.” 220 J.C. Cunningham notes that “there
is nothing in the present rubrics of the Roman rite against doing this today. Actually, in the Eastern rites the rubrics
even state the choice of bare mature baptism.” 221
156. Nudity was common and accepted in pre-medieval (circa 6th century) society, notably in areas like
Great Britain, which had been “barbarian” lands just a few hundred years before.222
E.T. Renbourn notes that nudity was prevalent throughout Ancient Britain and northern Europe, in spite
of the climate. Even as late as the 17th century, travellers like Coryat and Fynes Moryson discovered the Irish people
living nude or semi-nude indoors. He writes that Moryson, in his Itinery (circa early 17th century), located Irish
gentlewomen “prepared to receive visitors and even strangers indoors when totally unencumbered by
Clothes.” 223
157. Nudity was pretty common in medieval and renaissance society, particularly in the public washrooms and
Havelock Ellis records that “in daily life . . . a large level of nakedness was born during
medieval times. This was notably so in the public baths, frequented by men and women together.” 225 Lawrence
Wright detects that nudity was common in the home, too: “The communal bath had . . . one good motive; the good

their guests would bathe together while the water was hot. . . . Notions of propriety were different from ours, the whole
household as well as the guests shared the only sleeping apartment, and wore no night-clothes until the sixteenth
century. It was not necessarily rude to be nude.”226
The high ranking aristocrats of Edward IV’s court were allowed by law to d isplay their naked genitals below
a short tunic, and contemporary reports suggest that they did so. Chaucer remarked on the use of this trend in
The Parson’s Tale, written about 1400. Many men’s garments, he wrote, were so short they “covere nat the black

Girls would frequently leave their bodices loose and open or even completely undone, exposing the nipple or even the

1617, described Queen Anne of Denmark as wearing a dress which displayed her bosom “bare down to the pit of the

Most photographers at least will be acquainted with the wonderful work of Sally Mann,
large-format photography made in collaboration with her young and frequently nude
exploitation of her children, although I find this hard to take seriously.
Surely individuals who are behaving improperly towards their offspring are unlikely
to release photographic evidence.
Mann’s work is wonderful, and reveals a great deal about the feelings and love in
her family, both between her and her kids and also in the relationships
between them. It’s challenging to understand how anyone can find this offensive. It is
powerful and moving work that gives a positive and enriching perspective of life.
Yet we do need to be mindful that there are folks around who take a more
negative perspective, and also laws that we must take notice of. Additionally, there are sick
people who may see images of child nudity in distinct manners to us. It is an

Can You remember the very first time you Cooled Nekkid?

What does the word Nekkid mean?
The word Nekkid essentially mean Naked. Individuals frequently replace the word “nude” with the word “nekkid”. But in fact, each word has an entirely different significance.
In reality, many in society use the nekkid to define committing naughty, nonsexual behaviour without clothes.
Nekkid and Chilling
Naturism is tremendously underrated. I can guarantee you, if you have never had a flavor of it, you do not understand what you’re missing! Everyone who’s unfamiliar with it is going to have misconceptions about what it’s all around, how it feels to be bare outside with others, and so forth.
But here is what I suggest. If you are uncomfortable with yourself nude, it might be difficult to even envision yourself nekkid in the broad daylight exposed to the gazes of other (nekkid) individuals. So, hang out nekkid on your own. Thus far you may have spent your life being naked for mainly 2 reasons: bathing and sex.
Sex means nudity for that time period, but maybe once out of bed, the clothes go back on. Now try this out- depart the shower, dry off, and don’t get dressed!
Simply walk around your place naked. You do not have to do it in front of roommates or family, but if you’ve your own space, just chill out nude. (You could also attempt to convince your roommate/significant other to do the same). It is possible to read, play on your computer, work, do the activities you usually do. After a little while you will forget you are even nude. This is particularly rewarding if it’s summer and you can not afford A/C and your room is 95 degrees, with a fan blowing. (But that’s a summer plus.) If you can get comfortable with your own bare body in this way, you could likely warm up to hanging around other nekkid folks! If you’re just hanging out to relax, there is no reason to let anything control your body.
Chilling Nekkid
Then, if you believe that’s nice, try it outside! This can be step 2. Step far from the computer, go outside into sunlight to feel the heat and the wind against your skin, close your eyes, breathe in deep, and simply remain in the minute. You will soon feel entirely free and peaceful in your own body, mind, and soul. But alas, this may be impossible where you live.
But if you got some seclusion in the rear, take advantage of it! This can be a surprisingly rewarding experience. If not, consider stepping out into the wild, i.e. A nudist club where you are able to experience it!
Find some water where you are able to swim alone or with buddies and jump in without that pointless swimsuit. Or jump in first, then take it away if you’re unsure. It’s a very freeing experience.
Naturists or Naturists
Naturists or naturists are individuals who practice naturism, which combines nudity with a wholesome lifestyle, respect for all humans and love for the environment. Sun exposure provided through public nudity offers major health benefits while reducing carbon footprints by minimizing the dependence on clothes manufacturing. Initially developed in Europe during the 17th century, there are two kinds of nudism.
– Personal and family naturism appears within the boundaries of home for maximum privacy.
– Societal nudism takes place within private living spaces with friends and acquaintances that follow a naturist lifestyle. A number of facilities including resorts and clubs also provide societal naturist chances. A number of facilities including resorts and clubs also provide social naturist chances.
– Social nudism nudism occurs within the confines of dwelling for maximum privacy.
The notion of nekkid ties in with social naturism, as many prefer to flaunt their bare and naughty behaviour before others.
The Fascination of a Natuirist Lifestyle
Flexibility attracts many to a naturist lifestyle, as there isn’t any steadfast definition of the concept. In the United States, naturists focus on the sans-garments aspect while European followers adopt wellness aspects in addition to nudity.
Many signal that social nudism offers approval of an action deemed questionable by modern society.

Liberty Handles the issues of Bra Necessity and Why Naturist Girls Wear Bras

Guest Blog by Liberty Braless
Why Do Naturist Girls Wear Bras By Liberty Braless:
Naturist Women and Bras – “Why do naturist women wear bras?” is a question that has been around for quite a while, girls tending to have a love-hate relationship with the garment in question. The replies to this question are complex, but why should it be of special interest to nudists? While comprehending the dangers of generalizing, naturists are usually more aware of their body and to spend more time unclothed. So we might expect them to be less wedded to things like a bra. Yet, naturists are inclined to move in two worlds, naturist and fabric, and because of perceived stigma to naturism, they regularly go to some lengths to keep the two separate.
The bra has many parts in women’s lives. It was initially conceived instead to the corset as women became more active openly in the early twentieth century. It was mainly a cover, and among the first models was just two handkerchiefs sewn together by a corner to make two diamond contour breast covers. As the undergarment industry became a multibillion dollar international industry numerous means were found to marketplace bras to girls – function, icon, privacy, fashion statement, allure and maybe most significant of all, necessity.
Why do Naturist Girls Wear Bras
Among the promised functions of the bra is to ‘support.’ If naturists appear to want little support when bare, why would they want support when textiled? The notion of support is obviously entirely fictional. Whether evolutionist or creationist it is difficult to believe the human female was created in ways that required her to have her breasts cantilevered to prevent losing them, or damaging them. Breasts are nicely supported, attached to the chest wall by a broad base and by a skin cover. In fact, what the bra does is elevate the breast to a horizontal position, mirroring pubescent breasts, therefore throwing the entire weight onto the back, neck and shoulders, sometimes with serious health consequences.
In the search for new markets, producers, having used every colour, shape, style and cloth, developed a new thought. Possibly, they wondered, they could be persuaded to buy yet more bras to cover every time of the day and action, and thus the sports bra was created. Breasts move with exercise they said, which is not an extremely surprising finding. The next step was to argue that this was unwelcome. Moving breasts might draw attention to you personally, and worse might really damage these organs, hence girls must command their breasts with scientifically’ proven products. In practice breast motion is not that important, being good-anchored and usually firm, and most sports bras do little to reduce movement .
Push-up bra promotion
Naturists are generally associated with wholesome outdoor, physically active lifestyles, and for many, playing sports in the nude comes naturally. The fact that naturists usually are not afflicted with damaged breasts raises serious questions about the justification for the sports bra.
We have been seeing a progression towards more top freedom lately, and if it continues, it is a serious risk to the lingerie industry.
Also, nudists aren’t by nature unduly modest, but by simultaneously moving in a dominant fabric world they might internalize those values and possibly overcompensate to protect their hidden naturist lives. The modesty argument for bras is inherently contradictory. While supplying cover’ and disguising the real contours and elements of the breast, they’re also sold as items that accentuate the breasts, and as sexual baits.
Given that that there is no societal or scientific logical for a bra, that there are important worries of harmful effects, and that they’re expensive, uncomfortable and seldom healthy, one might expect them to go down the historical route of many earlier garments like corsets. Nevertheless given the extreme advertising and societal pressures this is unlikely to occur in the immediate future. Two factors in women’s lives and health might make a difference though – raising topfreedom, and by expansion normalizing nudism and removing the stigma that creates an existence of two isolations.
What do my female naturist readers think? Are bras crucial? Do you go ? Can you run or play sports totally unclothed or don a sports bra?
