The Embody Project

Every once in awhile we encounter a body of art that moves us to tears. And that’s exactly what happened when we saw this touching video by Erica Mueller, photographer and creator of The Embody Project.

Throughout much of art history, presentations of the human body have offered us idealized representations of the human form. Countless sculptures and paintings have lifted the human form onto a pedestal of perfection for us to appreciate the artistry and miracle of our own humanity.

Naked Club’s Video Streak edition 1

Video Streak will be a regular short blast of reporting from the naturist/nudist world using a dynamic hosted format that is informative and entertaining.

Short segments will share the social nudity experiences of individuals and groups in a variety of locations and situations around the world. "Naturism" is an expression of the normalization of the clothes-free body in a social atmosphere that is not charged with sexuality. 

Most modern cultures indoctrinate us with the idea that being nude, if not in private, is intrinsically a sexual provocation. Every enlightened and thoughtful person in the world knows this is nonsense. The experience of being nude in a broader setting is truly liberating and should not be denied to anyone. Social interaction becomes more honest when barriers are down. 

Experiencing nature becomes more connected and sensual. Naturism is ultimately about becoming a more conciliatory human... with the world and with other humans.
This first edition of Video Streak only shows a few activities by our group, Naked Club. And the hosts have been added after the fact, digitally. In future we will more actively report on-the-scene and we will encourage those on-camera to tell us about their experiences. 

The presentation format will be faster paced and more dynamic. Edition-1 is just a first attempt and we realize it is a bit long and spends too much time on each item presented.
We are open to receiving suggestions, invitations, submissions, ideas, contributions... 

We are looking for people who can shoot video (and photos) at places and times that are difficult for us to get to. Please get in touch. nomad@naked-club.org
Realistically it is going to be a month or two before edition-2 is available. 

As we work out the format and establish sources for reporting we would like accelerate to the point where it is a weekly show. 

To this end we will need to find sources of funding - featured resort segments, perhaps?
Stay tuned!

Invisible nudity

Model naked from the waist down walks around Hong Kong - and hardly anybody notices.

Your human body … is not a crime

MANY SOCIAL PLATFORMS CONSIDER YOUR NAKED BODY OBCENE
My husband says, "It's just Facebook, hunny"...

But it is not just Facebook. This is the society that we live in. This is the climate of judgment and shame that you encounter when you share images of human nudity as art.

It's punishable for you to share images from classic works of art or a figure drawing class or even a mother breastfeeding her child. Censorship on Facebook is just a reflection of the bigger battle you face when you draw, paint or photograph a naked human being.

We do not create this body of art to shock, offend, or arouse a mindless lust. We create so that all of us may come to see our shared humanity as a miraculous work of art.

What do you think? Is your naked body obscene? Is it a crime to share artistic images of naked humanity?
Reclaim your experience of human beauty!
