Below is a program made about Stephen Gough and his friend Melanie Roberts who, in 2003 set out to walk the length of Britain from Land’s End to John o’ Groats naked.

WARNING!: There is nudity in the program below and if you may be offended then do not click on the links.

Chat show clip on the subject (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6m9RPLcNtQ)

Look at the comments below the video clips…

Gough continues to this day to declare his freedom by flaunting the nudity laws of Britain and his last arrest was on January 14 2014; sentenced to 16 months.
Good on you Stephen…I wish I had such courage of conviction.

There has been another program on Stephen Gough’s exploits since the one above, but I can’t find it on the net; if anyone can please post a link here.

Until then HERE (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Gough) is the Wikipedia link to the subject.

Please post your views.

So I guess nudity is accepted as a norm...

We ware clothes because they are practical, and maybe we cover our genitalia to save others
from the embarrassment of arousal, but to make nudity criminal? is that taking it a little too far?

So, when we are born we immediately break the law until someone covers those demonical places on our bodies
that are so offensive.

Why are we offended by our own bodies?

If I saw someone naked rambling I would think them foolish because they may get their dangly bits caught on something.

I've been thinking about this and got distracted. I'm a nudist. I find this whole fear of the nude body rather pathological. I think it is the cause of much psychosomatic disease, creates "forbidden zones" that then attracts people to overcoming that which is forbidden. Single women can vacation at a nudist resort and feel and be quite safe. Children are generally safer than in textile society. Fear about one's body becomes a non issue. Making nudity a crime is bizarre to me. It creates crime.

One needs to be "innocent" to get along well in the macrodimensions. To tie it to the topic I'm working on an answer for, megalomania. Becoming megalomaniacal over an experience is far from innocence. Self glorification for a "perfect" body is far from innocent. It is jumping to vast assumptions because of the subjective interpretation of an experience. To lock somebody up because their nude body bothers YOU says everything about the person making it a crime and nothing at all about the nude person. When faced with a nude person, I'm innocent. I have no assumptions about meaning. When I see somebody stripped of all their protective mechanisms, I'm innocent. In doing a Tantric Alchemy, one must be innocent or all sorts of misunderstandings occur. When I open hearts with a person and allow Shaktipat, if they assume sex it says one thing, if it brings up other fears, something else. When I see somebody fully exposed without protection mechanisms, I can see them as they are because I jump to no conclusions which cuts off the flow of information instantly. Ascetics perhaps carry it to extremes. People afraid of their own body will not be able to innocent in facing their own fears.

When I start teaching somebody I start right at an almost sure reactive point. "Now, lets get comfortable for getting to know yourself. Take off your clothes. Here is a towel to sit on". At that point I have generally just seen their fears and terrors, whatever their responses are. If they run, I have just saved themselves and me from a whole lot of effort and time for work. If they protest they have already made a start. If they take off their clothing, their expectations tell all. It's a can't lose starting point.

However, giving up one's freedom for years in prison in order to hike through a town without clothing on is sort of like rubbing people's noses in their own shit, it gets them ticked off and they try to make sure you can't expose their fears again, and is self defeating. I'm not willing to pay the price to show them what assholes they are.
