We are so narrow minded that we show war, murder, and rape on TV, but we are not allowed to show one of the most wonderful creations (the human body) in its natural form.

It is a good principle to follow!
Accept your body and love who you are naturally
I only have this body and I must accept and care and love my body.
There is nothing better than strolling down the beach the way God made you.

…the human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendor and its beauty……Nakedness as such is not to be equated with physical shamelessness…Immodesty is present only when nakedness plays a negative role with regard to the value of the person…The human body is not in itself shameful…
- Karol Cardinal Woytyla (Pope John Paul II), Love & Responsibility, 1981
There’s no reason the clothed and the natural cannot co-exist, if each gives the other the proper respect.

How idiotic civilisation is! Why be given a body if you have to keep it shut up in a case like a rare, rare fiddle?
- Katherine Mansfield
