    I heard about someone who had twins born on separate days. Supposing they had been born around the cut off point for school admission. One would be a year in advance of the other (unless someone applied common sense).
    Surely any dividing line should depend on the individual? I've been to swim nights where people make up their own mind about going. No-one tells them they are too old to swim naked.
    It should be the individual's choice.

    Not even then. I intend to be buried nude. I want to leave this world in the same suit as I came into it.

    When I am naked (especially at the beach) I feel like a little kid again; liberated, unashamed, enjoying myself without being self conscious about my body. I guess that's why I enjoy being naked so much. It brings back those wonderful innocent childhood memories. What a great feeling!

    I read this thread and it makes me realize how lucky I was to have parents like the ones I have. They always told us not to feel shame of our bodies (they weren't nudists, but medicine students) but I did spent a lot of time nude when I was a kid. They always told us that we are born nude and that the human body is the biggest creation of all, and that everyone should be respected the same.

    I think there is no age of restriction and anyone should have the right to be on their natural state of birth; or covered if that is what makes them happy. I'm not against clothing, but I am against body shame and disrespect of the human body.

    Life is to short... it is nice to have others to share this short journey of life like it was meant to be!

I was visiting them one Friday night and both of their children,their son and daughter who were chasing each other, ran past me at full speed stark naked. I looked at them as if to say "shouldn't they have something on?" They remarked to me" it's no big deal because they do it all the time." I was kind of uncomfortable at first because I thought to myself "they are kind of old for this." But what could I do being I was in someone else's house?

    Earlier today I got bored, so I started looking around some of those photo sharing sites. Every so often I would come across a photo of a child in the nude. It was the typical shots of them in the backyard, tub, or the beach.

    When looking at these photos I felt a bit of jealousy, that the kids in the pictures got to enjoy a freedom I really can't. Then I began to wonder, why is it that after a certain age that social norms demand we cover ourselves? I know some families force this on their children at different ages. For some families its as soon as the child is old enough to walk, for others it never happens. Why can't people of any age have the same feelings of freedom and happiness as these children?

    Also I was surprised that in this day and age parents would put these types of photos on the Internet. Not saying its a bad thing, but I would think there might be alot of problems to deal with. Back in the day, from what I understand, photos of your child in the tub or nude in the backyard weren't a problem. The worst thing that would happen is that your mom would bring them out on prom night or when you had friends over, and embarass you. Now a days, you can get arrested and accused of making child pornography. Is society really that crazy or am I making too much out of this?

    Hey Arnabas. Considering this subject, you will unfortunately have a few,if not more, that are going to be offended by a book with photos of naked babies or children. The aforementioned issues concerning the Child Protective Services is the most dominating factor you really have to consider when harboring this kind of material. You just never know who may or will turn you in. Yes it's sad, but so true! Children can't be children anymore even!

    There were more than a few people who complained QUITE vocally about it and the fact that we were selling "child pornography".

    Which is quite sad...

    Yes children need to be protected. I have a 4-year old and would kill anyone who hurt him. But at the same time, we can't live in fear and assume that every bear-skin-rug photo is the work of a deranged pedophile.

    I have often wondered what would happen if someone was arrested for having nude photos of kids only to have it revealed that they were photos from their own childhood.

    If I have pictures of myself naked at 5 years of age, am I in possession of child pornography?

    These days? Probably.

    while in the infant stage of life, nude photos in the tub or walking around nude,is concidered cute. when we mature and begin to show pubic hair and developement then it's shunned by society. society rules all. if they would loosen up and hit the bigger problems in the world then it may be more acceptable. of course you'll always have that few that stretch it too far and ruin it for all of us.
