I’m not a prude, and in general I don’t have a problem with the naked body, but I never got the whole nudist camp thing. Spontaneous nudity I get, like skinny dipping, or jumping in a hot tub with friends, but nudist camps baffle me. Having never been to one, but from accounts by friends, documentaries, and written materials it is my understanding that these are places that exist for the sole purpose of bringing together groups of people you’d never want to see naked. People that probably should never be naked even when they are alone seem especially attracted to these camps.
I was under the impression that the Christian position on nudity (public or otherwise) was that if God wanted people to be naked he wouldn’t have made clothes. Imagine my surprise when I learned about the Christian Nudist Convocation (new window). Apparently this is an annual event and there are several dates and locations, one of which is actually called Show Me Acres (new window). Sorry to report, though, for all of you naked Christians out there this years event is over so you’ll just have to keep your pants on till next summer.
