♥ our “family” christmas morning ♥
Of course this is not Naturism, but I think there is a minor relationship (theme) to connect the two! Follow my thinking for a second, please.
For most of our lives we are either (A) naked, or (B) dressed, right? So, is it possible there is a third option that is neither fully-dressed or fully-naked? The skin is our largest sense organ, one unobstructed, all encompassing covering that also transmits billions of sensations to the brain simultaneously. If we tried to build a computer program to handle this level of continuous input, we would have a real, serious challenge I think. So, tying string, ribbon, yarn or cordage around parts of the body is a way to activate specific sensations – specific instructions – to the brain and learn to accept these, managed these and incorporate them into our everyday experiences.
It is kind of like answering the question, ‘Why do we stop and smell the roses?’ or ‘Why do I prefer one taste (tea) over another (coffee)?’ for example. Most of these are a matter of trial and error, sense and acceptance, stimulation and happiness (achieved) or something along these lines. We “program” ourselves, we “condition” ourselves and learn to love X over Y, or accept B instead of A. The perfect definition of learning to love life is developing a preference and working to achieve the liberty and freedom TO enjoy what we finally decide we like and what works for us!
As a man, I have played around with tying string around my body and quite literally thought of it as both an artistic and experience endeavor; it was fun! I did not use any sort of guide or instructions and as a result found the “outfit” I created was not something easily removed and put back on again. No, it was a thing that could be recreated and it felt very nice, but was also very impractical – maybe the very best things in life are completely impractical?
