A Brief History of Body Painting
Nudity , or nakedness , is the state of wearing no clothing. The deliberate and conscious wearing of clothing is a behavioural adaptation , which among all known extant and extinct animals is a uniquely human characteristic arising from functional needs such as protection from the elements. Protection from the elements includes the sun for depigmented human populations and cold temperatures after the loss of body hair and the migration of humans to colder regions  around , years ago in which they had not evolved and thus lacked the necessary physical adaptations.
According to some researchers, wearing clothes may predate early human global migrations by an additional 70, years. In this case, the migrations were themselves facilitated by the innovation of clothing. At most, as in the case of Homo neanderthalensis, they are believed to have worn only capes, if any coverings at all. This lack of behavioral adaptation, in turn, may have contributed to their eventual extinction during ancient climate changes when they may have succumbed to hypothermia, frostbite and other cold ailments.
The amount of clothing worn depends on functional considerations, such as a need for warmth, as well as social circumstances. In some situations, a minimum amount of clothing or none at all may be considered socially acceptable, while in others much more clothing may be expected.
Social considerations involve cultural issues of modesty , subjective decency and social norms , besides other considerations, and these may depend on the context. There may also be legal considerations.
Full nudity refers to complete nudity, while partial nudity refers to less than full nudity, with parts of the body covered in some manner.
The term "partial nudity" is sometimes used to refer to exposure of skin beyond what the person using the expression considers to be within the limits of modesty. If the exposure is within the standards of modesty of a given culture and setting e. If however, the degree of exposure exceeds the cultural norms of the setting, or if the activity or setting includes nudity as an understood part of its function, such as a nude beach , terminology relating to nudity and degrees thereof are typically used.
Toplessness is regarded by most people as partial nudity. Full frontal nudity describes a state of full nudity with the subject facing towards the viewer, with the whole front of the body exposed, including intimate parts such as a man's penis or woman's vulva. Partial frontal nudity typically only refers to the exposure of the breasts. Non-frontal nudity describes nudity where the whole back side of the body, including the buttocks , is exposed, or a side-view from any other direction.
Hair probably evolved in mammals before about million years ago. The closest living genetic relatives of humans, apes and especially chimpanzees , possess an almost complete covering of fur. Humans are today the only naked primate in nature, that is, most of the body is not naturally covered by fur. Reliable information on the development of nudity and the passage of time are not yet possible because hair does not fossilize. Researchers at the University of Utah in found that human skin contains photoreceptors like those in the retina, allowing it to mount an immediate defence against damaging ultraviolet radiations.
They suspect that the protein that protects the skin from sunlight evolved following the loss of protective hair, which happened about 1. People have a variety of views on nudity, both of their own as well as those of others. This would depend on their level of inhibition , cultural background and upbringing, as well as on context. A society's attitude to public nudity varies depending on the culture, time, location and context of an activity.
There are many exceptions and particular circumstances in which nudity is tolerated, accepted or even encouraged in public spaces. Such examples would include a nude beach , within some intentional communities such as naturist resorts or clubs and at special events.
In general and across cultures, public indications of sexual arousal are commonly regarded as embarrassing , both to the person aroused and the onlooker, and for this reason those parts of the human body that would indicate arousal are normally covered. Arousal is most evidently indicated by the sex organs and women's breasts , which are routinely covered, even when other parts of the body may be freely uncovered.
Yet the nudity taboo may have meanings deeper than the immediate possibility of sexual arousal, for example, in the cumulative weight of tradition and habit. Clothing also expresses and symbolizes authority, and more general norms and values besides those of a sexual nature.
While some European countries, such as Germany, are rather tolerant of public nudity,  in many countries public nudity may meet social disapproval or even constitute a misdemeanor of indecent exposure. In , the city council of San Francisco proposed a ban on public nudity in the inner city area.
This was met by harsh resistance since the city is usually known for its liberal culture. Some people take part in non-sexual public nude events.
These may be in a naturist resort or club or at a nude beach. Outdoor nude recreation can take place in private or rural areas, though generally limited to warm weather.
Others practice casual public nudity. Topfree sunbathing is considered acceptable by many on the beaches of Finland, France, Spain, Italy and most of the rest of Europe and even in some outdoor swimming pools ; however, exposure of the genitals is restricted to nudist areas in most regions.
In the United States, topfree sunbathing and wearing thongs are not common in many areas, but are limited to nude beaches in various locations. It is normally acceptable for men in the U. Where the social acceptability of nudity in certain places may be well understood, the legal position is often less clear cut. In England, for example, the law does not actually prohibit simple public nudity, but does forbid indecent exposure [ citation needed ].
In practice, this means that successful prosecution hangs on whether there is a demonstrable intention to shock others, rather than simply a desire to be nude in a public place.
Specifically, using nudity to "harass, alarm or distress" others is an offence against the Public Order Act of Occasional attempts to prove this point by walking naked around the country therefore often result in periods of arrest, followed by release without charge, and inconsistencies in the approach between different police jurisdictions. Differences in the law between England and Scotland appear to make the position harder for naked ramblers once they reach Scotland.
Photography of installations of massed nude people in public places, as made repeatedly around the world by Spencer Tunick , claim artistic merit.
Nudity is at times used to draw attention to a cause, with the participants desiring to remain anonymous. Public nude events are at times staged as a forum for usually unrelated messages, such as clothing-optional bike rides.
At times, the cause is merely a personal justification for taking part in a nude event, which are popular in their own right. Many nude calendars are produced each year featuring naked men or women. Some of these are produced to raise money for charities or other causes.
Nudity, like sexuality, is also used to draw attention for a commercial purpose, such as for promotion or advertising. Nudity may be used as a part of artistic or erotic performance, such as in nude performance art , nude body painting ex. Fantasy Fest , sex shows , striptease , adult entertainment conventions, and in adult-only events like Folsom Street Fair , Nudes-A-Poppin' , etc.
In the privacy of their own homes, people are more casual in relation to clothing, though what each considers appropriate varies considerably. What and how much clothing a person removes depends on a number of considerations, including the cultural background and on whether the person is alone in the privacy of their own homes. The removal of overclothing, such as coats, hats, gloves, scarves and the like, is the norm in virtually all households.
It is also common for people to remove outdoor shoes when entering one's home and at times guests may also be expected to do the same.
It is also common to change out of work clothes such as a suit and tie, overalls etc. Beyond that, how much more is removed depends on personal taste, habits, circumstance and relationships of the people inside the household at a particular time.
A person's cultural background as well as their religious teachings will affect the way they view their own nudity or state of dress, alone or in the presence of others, as well as how they view the nudity of others.
Some cultures deprecate nudity even in a private context. Another factor is the level of privacy to which a person can be assured - for example, some parts of a home may be seen from the outside or there may be a possibility of others walking in. The expectation of privacy may be confined to the home and sometimes the backyard.
Inside the home, it may be restricted to the bedroom or just the bathroom. If a person is not alone, their comfort in removing clothing in front of another person will generally depend on the nature of a relationship of those who jointly occupy the same private space, as well as the attitudes of others to nudity.
Besides the nature of a relationship, attitudes and incidences of nudity will also depend on the level of inhibition that each person has, as well as the level of privacy to which that they can be assured. Sometimes a person may unintentionally intrude on a person who is in the nude, which may lead to embarrassment of one or both of the people.
The nude person may seek to quickly cover their private parts, while the clothed person may turn away, but this also depends on cultural differences and the relationship of the people. In the case of nudity in front of those who do not normally occupy the same private space, that will usually depend on whether the outsider is comfortable with the nudity and whether the nudity is reciprocated, as in the case of social nudism. Social nudism may take place in any private social context, such as at one's home with friends or with acquaintances at a nudist facility or event, such as a naturist club, community center, resort or other facility.
To generate an atmosphere of fun at a social gathering and lighten the social atmosphere, or to heighten the sexual atmosphere and ease those present into some state of nudity, organisers of a social gathering may organise party games , which may involve some level of nudity, such as strip games , for example strip poker , which can be played by single-sex groups or by mixed groups.
Nudity in front of a sexual partner is widely accepted, but not in all cases. For example, some partners insist on nudity only at the time and place of sex , or with subdued lighting; during bathing with the partner or afterward; covered by a sheet or blanket, or while sleeping.
The invention of photography and more recently the video camera has opened the art of capturing images of people and scenes at a relatively low cost to the true amateur.
A person can now capture images in both public and private situations. A feature of most private photographs and videos is that they are not intended for viewing outside of a very limited range of people, and seldom if ever by the general public.
Amateur photography , which includes nude photography, which has previously been produced for personal enjoyment, is increasingly being more widely disseminated through the internet, at times without the knowledge and consent of the subject of the photograph, and to their subsequent embarrassment. Also, the use of secret photography to capture images of an unsuspecting person undressed or not, and whether for personal use, or intended for posting on the Internet creates additional personal privacy issues.
Some people are made anxious by being nude or being in the presence of nude people; if this begins to interfere with their well-being, the phobia is called gymnophobia.
There are differences of opinion as to whether, and if so to what extent, parents should appear naked in front of their children. Gordon and Schroeder report that parental nudity varies considerably from family to family.
They note that by ages five to six, children begin to develop a sense of modesty, and recommend to parents who wish to be sensitive to their children's wishes that they limit such activities from that age onwards. Bonner recommends against nudity in the home if children exhibit sexual play of a type that is considered problematic. The study found that there was no significant difference between what was reported by men and by women with respect to frequency of nudity in the home.
In a review of the literature, Paul Okami concluded that there was no reliable evidence linking exposure to parental nudity to any negative effect.
Attitudes toward children seeing nude people vary substantially, depending on the child's culture, age and the context of the nudity see also the section Home above. Television and radio regulations in many countries require broadcasters to avoid transmitting images or language considered inappropriate for children from 5: In the United Kingdom, the Broadcasting Code states, "Nudity before the watershed must be justified by the context. Violators may be subject to civil legal action and sanctions if the Federal Communications Commission FCC determines the broadcaster did not meet its standards of "decency".
Attitudes to nudity vary substantially throughout Europe. Male and female nudity in Scandinavia is not uncommon. The region has a very open attitude about nudity, although it strictly prohibits children's access to pornography. In many countries, including the U.
