Whenever you think of going naked, usually people would prefer to do it within the confines of somewhere private. Even though being nude is actually a pretty normal thing, since we are after all born naked and do certain things in the nude, the idea of going naked while being in public is something a lot of us will probably not do. In some parts of the world, it is considered illegal for an individual to go around without wearing any form of clothing. However, there are certain places in the world which have laws regarding those who want to show off their nudist tendencies.
Pairing nudity with already-popular sports, practices and hobbies is guaranteed to attract attention and the business of eccentrics. We see nudity as an adventure, or even a challenge, putting us outside of our comfort zone and into the ultimate state of vulnerability. And yet, once you strip down—hopefully in a socially-permitting area—you feel an unexpected confidence and release of stress. If you can conquer the fear of public nudity, you can conquer anything. You become invested in your immediate surroundings, present and sensorily awake. There is a natural freedom derived from shedding the boundaries we have long accepted as inherent.

Intent of Exposure
Clothing laws vary considerably around the world. In general, in most countries, there are no laws which prescribe what clothing is required to be worn. However, the community standards of clothing are set indirectly by way of prosecution of those who wear something that is not socially approved. Those people who wear insufficient clothing can be prosecuted in many countries under various offences termed indecent exposure , public indecency or other descriptions. Generally, these offences do not themselves define what is and what is not acceptable clothing to constitute the offence, and leave it to a judge to determine in each case. Most clothing laws concern which parts of the body must not be exposed to view; there are exceptions. Some countries have strict clothing laws, such as in some Islamic countries. Other countries are more tolerant of non-conventional attire and are relaxed about nudity. Many countries have different laws and customs for men and women, what may be allowed or perceived often varies by gender.
Indecent exposure is the deliberate exposure in public or in view of the general public by a person of a portion or portions of their body in circumstances where the exposure is contrary to local moral or other standards of appropriate behavior. The term indecent exposure is a legal expression. Social and community attitudes to the exposing of various body parts and laws covering what is referred to as indecent exposure vary significantly in different countries. It ranges from outright prohibition to prohibition of exposure of certain body parts, such as the genital area, buttocks or breasts. Decency is generally judged by the standards of the local community, which are seldom codified in specifics in law. Such standards may be based on religion, morality or tradition, or justified on the basis of "necessary to public order ". If sexual acts are performed, with or without an element of nudity, this can be considered gross indecency , which is usually a more serious criminal offence.
