What is it with Americans and nudity? I’m frequently baffled by their prudeness and downright terror at a sight of a (female) nipple, when they’re not shy about violence in films, video games, comics etc. If I were to have children (which I won’t) I would much rather 1) expose them to nudity rather than violence, and 2) encourage them to think of a human body as a natural thing. I can vouch for the fact they will not turn into nude beach, self-exposing sex maniacs, as this is how Finns have grown up since the dawn of time. On the other hand, we are a terribly depressed nation. Maybe it has to do with the fact that mere sight of a nude human doesn’t seem all that titillating?
Sure, we have separated saunas in public places, but we all grow up going to sauna with the entire families, sometimes with neighbours, and at cottages all over Finland’s 80,000 some lakes, people go between sauna and lake without bothering to be bashful about it. In the nekkid! In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s happened in a whole lot of families that a kid looks at dad and goes ”Daddy, what’s this?” and does something to make the said daddy go cross-eyed. I bet you it’s not the child that gets traumatised…
Ah. This could easily be another endless rant about historical and psychological context and consequences, but instead, I’ll just post the pictures Photobucket removed from my account with no further explanation. SUFFER, ye prudes!
(I was able to draw the bottom two without getting traumatised or aroused. Amazing, isn’t it?)
