Children and Naturism – Part 1 of 2

Since the beginning, naturism has been a family movement. Because its adherents believed that all of humanity would benefit, it was natural that children should be included. In Germany, a naturist-focused series of schools was even created by Adolf Koch in the early 20th century. (Körperkulturschule Adolf Koch) More recently, a multitude of scholarly research papers in psychology and sociology suggest that children reared in an atmosphere containing family social nudity benefit from the practice. In this episode we discuss this academic aspect with Mark Storey.

Is the image of a nude child indecent? What is consent? What if people misuse your image? What are the implications of a naked picture of yourself on the internet?
