Episode LX

Pornography

Every naturist needs to understand pornography because the images of naturism are so often classified as pornographic by the general public. And, for nearly a century, hustlers have exploited naturists in order to create porn. But most importantly, we need to understand how pornography is hurting us and affecting our relationships.  Not only is naturism NOT about pornography, it actually offers an antidote to its ills.

The song at the beginning of the show was “Nature is” by Brian Madison.
We also celebrate passing 100, 000 downloads (not hits or impressions) of the show! And that number to continues to grow every day and the rate of growth is also increasing. Here are a few facts about the podcast:
  • It is audio-only so only true naturists or those genuinely interested in naturism listen (we don’t get download of the show from people just looking for nudity because there are no pictures)
  • Each download is many megabytes in size and the show is nearly an hour long so the involvement level is very high. (it’s not just a ‘hit’ or ‘impression’)
  • Unlike a radio or TV show, the podcasts are available forever. Even the oldest episode is still growing in listenership as new people discover the show and catch up on the older episodes.
  • While there are no specific demographics available, the audience is obviously technologically savvy which suggests that they are well-educated and younger.
  • There are listeners are from around the world. (18% Canada, 39% USA, 26% Europe, & 17% other)

Nudity and the Human Body

Part 1 of 3 on nudity and the human body. In this first show, we discuss society’s attitude towards the human body and how we deal with being nude. How mass media deals with people who are naked is reflective of our own attitudes. But mass media also amplifies our fears, issues and anxieties thereby making them worse. We look at two television shows. First that cultural touchstone that was Seinfeld and, secondly, a current reality-TV show called Dr. 90210.
