The Naked Advice

Model & Writer Liz LaPoint answers your questions about dating, sex, and relationships

Liz: “I believe in body positivity and self-acceptance, and a healthy attitude toward nudity is sorely needed here in the U.S. Too many people instantly equate nudity with pornography, which I think says more about them than it does about the person who is nude. I (and thousands of other people) have posed nude for artistic endeavors and we are clearly comfortable in our own skin, and those who aren’t sometimes judge.

That said, I find nudists more interesting, because for them being naked is not just for art or sex!

So let me start by asking, what does it mean to be a nudist?”

Sophie:For me it means to live fully exposed. Both in body and spirit. Clothes are just a mask that hides our true self. We are not Ralph Lauren or Prada, we are flesh, bone, and spirit. Being naked means being true to yourself and to the people around you.”

Liz: “What’s the biggest misconception about nudism?”

Sophie: “That we are nothing but exhibitionist perverts. That we are naked because we want people looking and for easy access for the public orgies we must have all the time. This couldn’t be further from the truth!”

L: “What’s the difference between nudism and naturism?”

S: “Is there a difference? Nudism feels natural. And Naturism involves being nude. If there is a difference I’m not aware of it.”

L: “What first drew you to nudism, and how long have you been a nudist?”

S: “My mother raised my sisters and I in the lifestyle. My father was always traveling and because it was just us girls, we didn’t see the point of putting on clothes. I guess we weren’t really “Nudists” just 4 females who loved being naked around the house, in the garden or at the beach. I’ve always been a nudist and I will continue to be a nudist. I don’t understand clothes, and I don’t like wearing them. If I do wear clothes I keep them light and airy. My skin needs to be free!”

L: “Have you ever stayed at a nudist resort or commune, and if so, what was that like?”

S: “No, but I would love to. I spent time on a commune and I was fully naked most of the time, but it wasn’t an official nudist commune. It was a little awkward for some of the residents, but most of them loved my lifestyle and some became more comfortable with their own bodies because of it.”

L: “Has anyone ever treated you differently after learning you’re into nudism?”

S: “My biggest trouble is from the people who think I’m looking for sex all the time. I become subhuman to them. Men have seen me on the beach or other nude approved areas and touched my butt, or verbally harassed me. Made proposals and got mad at me if I rejected their advances. I guess they couldn’t believe a young naked female wasn’t dying to have sex with them. I’ve had friends who have not wanted to spend time with me after they learned. When I was little I was known as the naked girl at school. They didn’t come to my birthday party. My sisters and I were homeschooled most of the time partially because of that and because we moved a lot. That said, I did gain a few friends who thought nudism was cool. Most of their parents didn’t know what happened at my house, but I was glad to convert a few.”

L: “What would you say is the most surprising thing about living a nudist lifestyle?”

S:How totally cool nudist kids and people who grew up nudist are. Most nudist kids don’t judge bodies and don’t hate their own. They are taught young that everyone is naked under their clothes and a naked body is nothing to fear.”

        A shame that you are not doing any new YouTube. I have been reminded again and again how attraction has such a strong mental component. My grandfather was well ahead of his time in recognizing intelligence for its own sake and encouraging my mother to have a career in any society. My mother has never played the woman card in an international career. She kicks ass as a person. Gee that has upset a lot of men and women. Putting the booze down 21 years ago only got more people upset with her. As much as my father and I can be different he has only supported her when many of his peers have been wankers. My father as a professional sportsman has always been about participation and inclusion…. what this country was once about. Our family got targeted when dad did what he did for women’s sports. Now those very people are getting media attention ($$$) from a new women’s football league. What my mother copped over the years from some people. Yep… got to love a woman with a strong mind. So incredibly attractive.. free thought is. Blessed be.

        I often ask blokes at footy clubs… who were you scared of more growing up… your mum or your dad? Us tough boys are always more terrified of pissing off mum 😄😃😅

    I have a girlfriend who openly said to me a couple of years ago that she loves being naked, feels very natural that way, and does like showing her body. I remember at the time being hit with an idea that I had not exactly met before…. she wasn’t being overtly sexual though the fact that she wasn’t being falsely modest was a relief too. I guess the longer I have known her I have known that as an aspect of her character that I love just as something else could be part of her that I would love too. I guess a lot of people make careers out of sex now… or non sex. I am following the Pamela Anderson support of Julian Assange thing a bit because I do know of police who have made good careers of steering societal expectations in this area. This police and prosecutors don’t care for either party… or the spirit of the law itself. Aphrodite is a damn powerful deity and must be respected. She seduced Paris to choose her over Athene and Hera… and a thousand ships were launced.

    That was a really good interview. I feel the same way about the way others sometimes view those who live a life free of judgement. My other half has called me a perv cause I like being nuked. It’s hard, really hard.
