Thoughts on nudity

I'd like to share with you an excerpt from Green Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson that I thought came some way towards explaining my fascination with nudism:
Nadia saw again and again how beautiful humans were. Nakedness was dangerous to the social order, she thought, because it revealed too much reality. They stood before each other with all their imperfections and their sexual characteristics and the intimations of mortality--but most of all, with their astonishing beauty, which in the ruddy light of the tunnel sunset could scarcely be believed, could scarcely be comprehended or answered.
I'm so grateful to broc_dresdroth for tolerating my nudity and to ristin for letting me.

It's a good book, isn't it? I really like some of the ideas in it. Not just about the future, but about the way people socialise.

Thanks to Ristin for letting you?! You shouldn't have to thank your lover for "letting" you relax in the nuddy.

I do. He was uncomfortable at first with the idea of me going around nude in front of Broc.

Oh, I didn't read this carefully enough. Now I understand ... well, still, as both Rist' and Broc have said, however you're comfy is fine with them.
