Is nudity healthy? Proponents of the nudist lifestyle answer this question with an unequivocal "yes." They point out the many practical and health benefits of nudism in the modern world.
Non-naturists wonder how anyone could walk around in public dressed in nothing but their "birthday suit." They may view nude bodies as awkward, immodest or erotic. For those who visit nudist resorts or live in nudist communities, nakedness had many advantages over a "clothed existence."
