Nudity is the ultimate test of self-acceptance. Why are we so afraid of it?

Last week we reported on  nude viewing of a gallery in Canberra, Australia, as experienced by Guardian reporter Monica Tan.

This week, Ms. Tan has followed up on that report, specifically her friends’ reaction to her participation, in today’s edition of the same paper, entitled ‘Nudity is the ultimate test of self-acceptance. Why are we so afraid of it?’

I won’t rehearse Ms. Tan’s arguments here, just ask you to click the link and read.

Monica Tan, who has written some excellent pieces on public nudity, and attitudes towards it, for The Guardian

All I will say is that she makes many excellent points on a variety of topics within a theme, from casual ignorance of the nude form when placed inside that situation, to loss of control over internet photos.
