The main deterrent to nudism/naturism from non-nudists/naturists is that nudity is something that is private and linked to sexual arousal. However, for nudists and naturists, non-sexual nudity is a reality. It’s a complete separation between nudity and sexuality. This means one can be naked without feeling sexual and without having any sexual thoughts. Many people, you may be, have been taught that nudity is private and “dirty”.

Yes, they have a sexual and reproduction function, but they are also organs like hands, feet and noses. What is offensive about a penis, a vulva or breasts? Nothing as such. I would argue, it’s like a knife. It’s not offensive until you point it to someone. Sexualizing nudity is taking for granted that a naked person is having or will be having sex. Desexualizing nudity is taking for granted that the behavior of the naked person is what makes his or her intent.
