Obviously, everybody has different comfort levels and I can not actually make a statement to know what is best for folks, but I’ve never heard anything bad come from a man who has tried out being nude. I do not think it tends to make anybody feel worse about their bodies if they are coming from a location of already feeling awful.

It is similar to lots of questions I get from people where they tell me how amazing I am and how brave and how there is no way they could do that I do. And my answer is an honest, perplexed, “Why not?!”Anyone can do what I do. Anyone can get naked.
Anyone can discuss it. Go to http://wwwthoun.com/most-popular/ , post an image of their body hair online, make a blog post about how hard their period is. Folks judge themselves so harshly and are so fearful of what everybody else will believe, but we have only got one shot at life and I think it is so important to just do what it is that you want to do because you do not get another chance. Eventually, we’ll all perish and no one will remember if we did that one thing that one time and one individual made a snide comment. That’s not what’s going to matter.
So I figure in a brief response:the best way to get over things is by only doing them.
I couldn’t agree more!

Christian Blogger Mom’s Pleas to Teen Girls about Naked Selfies
By: Erik Jacobsen
Christian Blogger Mom, Mrs. Hall, Naked Selfies and Teen Girl Selfies
In a blog post written a couple of days ago by Kimberly Hall who’s the Manager of Women’s Ministry at All Saints Presbyterian Church in Austin, Texas teenaged girls are guided to avoid posting provocative naked selfies on their social media reports.
The issue, she indicates, is that her adolescent sons will be tempted by these photos, and WOn’t be able to un-see them which may lead to all sorts of problems for both her sons and the girls in question.
Few parents myself included will disagree with Ms. Hall’s fundamental message about the need to handle our children’s existence on social media. My own daughters are likely about four to five years away from being allowed to sign up these services, but I’ve already given http://www.thoun.com/latest-updates/ of thought about how I plan to keep an eye on them.

The trouble with Ms. Hall’s piece, however, is that she focuses only on the conduct of girls while entirely ignoring how her sons should behave.
According to one of Ms. Hall’s responses to those who’ve commented on the piece, she has received over 3,000 responses that she’s working her way through a number which is far higher than the 15-20 answers that she typically receives.
I took the time to put together a somewhat-lengthy but courteous reply, which I ‘ve copied below.
I have written previously on the topic of introducing adolescents to nudism and nudism (view it here: Teenage Naturists ) and the challenges inherent in undertaking such educational efforts. I believe it’s useful that we remind ourselves from time to time about exactly the challenges we are up against.
Young folks eventually become adults, and have a tendency to carry with them the societal standards and practices they learn inside their youth.

One last note if there are any Christian naturists among you, please take time to leave a reply in the comments section of Ms. Hall’s site post. I do not know if she will release all of the opinions, but I believe it would be worth alerting her to the existence of Christian nudists. As I am not a Christian, I didn’t mention it in my opinion. You can also e-mail her at khall[at]allsaintsaustin[dot]org, which is her address at the church.
What follows is my response to her:
Dear Mrs. Hall:
