This has been a major debate or more precisely a topic to educate non-nudists. It is very basic. Whether clothed or not, you will see people that immediately you think are pretty, handsome, sexy, hot and of course just the opposite ugly, plain, homely looking or may not attract your attention. This will happen whether you are nude or wearing clothes.
For someone who always wearing clothing, they will see someone naked and say “they are sexy” or “they need to cover up”. How would they feel about the same person if they were wearing clothes? Clothed or naked, you will always at one time or another find someone that is extremely striking, enough so you take notice of this person. And besides, sometimes wearing clothes (very little) is sexier than anything else. Sometimes.
We (the nudist lifestyle livers) are not saying when you see someone naked it will not attract arousal or thoughts of how you feel seeing them. We are saying being nudes does not mean sex. How many times have you seen someone and thought “wow, he/she is extremely sexy”? Was the person clothed? We all have seen someone, somewhere and thought that person is pretty. So pretty that person stands out. Male or female, clothed or not, someone will come into your field of vision and you will say “wow”.
It truly is the same thing.
