Sex and Nudity

It’s interesting how, on

It’s interesting how, on a DVD case, sex and nudity will be grouped together in the section of things unsuitable for young children. In society’s eye, nudity is very much the same thing as sex, but, for me these are entirely different things. Nudity I am quite indifferent too, whereas sex can cause me a great deal of anxiety.

Why do people always link nudity with sex? Friends, both male and female, will happily get changed in front of me, and it makes no difference to me. It’s nothing more than extra parts of their bodies, how is there any sex in that at all? Two people, both female this time, curiously, have sent me photographs of themselves naked for me to tell them if they ‘look alright’ and to me it’s nothing. Although, I do have to say that I don’t like to be given the power to tell somebody whether their body looks alright because, of course it does, everyone’s body looks alright and it’s only the awful side of our society that would tell them otherwise and I’ve insisted I can tell them that without the photographs, but they send them all the same. Funnily enough, I’m extremely uncomfortable with being even slightly undressed around other people.

Sex, in my mind, is an entirely distinct concept. I don’t like to ever think about sex and it’s out of my mind almost all of the time. The very idea of it, especially the idea of myself ever being involved in that kind of thing, makes me extremely uncomfortable. I don’t like it when my friends tell me about their sex lives and, unless they have some kind of problem they’d like to talk about, it’s something I’d rather they didn’t bring up as, what’s the point? I don’t know, perhaps I have some kind of irrational fear of the subject (I’m not sure why I would though), but the point of this post is, that there’s nothing inherently sexual about the naked human body, and I think it’s a little silly that so many people always associate the two things in that way.
