Are Pornographers and Religious Groups Working Together?

Pornographers and many (most?) religious people do agree on one thing -- nudism should be eliminated. A conspiracy? No, I don't think so but it is an ironic thought.

Many religious people object to nudity on dogmatic grounds. Unclothed bodies should not be seen. It's interesting that in the Judaeo-Christian tradition (and other traditions) there are references to nudity in scriptures but these are largely ignored. Unclothed bodies should not be seen!

Pornographers don't agree with this position but do know that nudism is bad for business. If nudist and clothing optional resorts, beaches and hot springs grew and became common then the human body would become common place, natural and largely ignored. The market for pornography would dwindle dramatically.

It's easy to understand the goal of pornographers in opposing nudism -- simple monetary gain through any means. It's not so easy to understand the goal of religious people. If nudism was eliminated how would the world be better?

Sometimes, I wonder if the religious opposition to simple nudity is actually a boon to the pornographers.

Yep. Nekkid we are born and nekkid we are beneath these clothes of fabric and of imagination! If we didn't make such a big deal of nekkid, nekkid would not be such a big deal. Thank you for your thoughts!
