Why we need to distinguish nudity from sexuality

Tim Higgs - Thursday, January 21, 2021
It is very common for people who haven’t experienced a naked spa to think it will be sexual and I can understand why, apart from when people are having a bath or shower the next most common time people are naked is when they’re enjoying sex. Nudity is also one of the most intriguing subjects and the media love to link nudity with sexual innuendo – it plays to a pre-conceived understanding and marketeers use the most powerful sexual emotion to drive sales with scantily clad subjects.

The truth is, it’s clothing that sexualises the body, not nudity.

Most people think nudity is equal to sex, as that is often what results when they see someone naked. Movies are rated based on how much nudity they have. You'd never take a kid to an 18 rated movie, so people mistakenly apply the same logic to nude activities. It's pertinent to point out almost all nudity in movies is meant to be sexual. 

The truth is, there is nothing inherently sexual about nudity. You can be highly sexual with all of your clothes on. You can also be non-sexual with your clothes off!

Nudity is one facet, and at times a very important facet, in the expression of feelings in intimate relationships. Physical intimacy is characterized by passionate love and attachment, or sexual activity. This is often why the two things in question become misconstrued. 

Some cultures equate nudity with sexuality, but that is not always the case. Historically, nudity has been practiced in some cultures without any necessary association with sexuality. Nudity can exist in non-sexual social contexts, as in the case of naturist settings. 

It’s important to distinguish between the two, as the common perception is nudity means sex. This is simply not the case!

At our spa, you will certainly see people without clothing, they may be wearing a robe or a towel at times but let’s be clear it is not a place for exhibitionism or voyeurism. Clover Spa does not permit behaviour that has any sexual connotations. If you're looking for casual sex please don't visit Clover Spa, it is not allowed and you will be disappointed.

Overall, we find nudity to be liberating and exhilarating. The ultimate point of self-acceptance is when you truly feel comfortable naked. We hope we’ve cleared up the confusion between nudity and sexuality, learn more about Clover Spa via our website and social media.
