Nudity

We Were Always Here

Wednesday, 19 January

Nudity impacts so many areas of our lives - sexual and nonsexual - so it seems only right that we start here. From the moment that we have an understanding of our bodies we’re told about all the things that are wrong with them, and that it’s our responsibility to fix them. Which is exhausting. What would it be like if we were able to start from a place of accepting our bodies as they are right now? In this episode Ruby digs into the ways she became comfortable with her own body - from life drawing to being in nude spaces, and the myriad reasons why nudity could be difficult for us. She also speaks to Dr Keon West about the positive impacts being nude could have on us all.
