[Untitled][edit]

Since this article deals with the topic almost exlusively in the USA, why not move it to a new topic Nudity and sexuality in the USA so that a proper world encyclopedic topic can be created here without disturbing the value of what has been written? --Interesdom 08:31, 15 March 2007 (UTC)


This section was removed as irrevelent. The prisoners were held 24 hours a day. Most men get erections during sleep.

Some suggest that the fear of getting an erection is itself a major factor preventing erections. This idea is, however, refuted by the fact that one of the means of abusing Abu Ghraib prisoners was to mock their involuntary erections (that is, even their utmost fear wasn't able to prevent erection).[1] DNBR 07:26, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Article needs work[edit]

This article needs a substantial amount of work. I did a little copyediting, but it needs much more. Atom (talk) 02:15, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

article issues[edit]

Without a shred of evidence all this may appear (or at least some of it) as WP:OR. At any rate, can this no tbe blended into Nudity or Sexuality, if it can't then someone can easily get sources from both, and then look for some more. Why should this be notable on its own stead?

Naturism and sexuality[edit]

Nudists have long claimed that nudism reduces lustful desire. This might be true. However, I read recently (sorry, I don't remember where) that (at least some) nudists do use nudism as an excuse for ogling the opposite sex, and that nudist camps are sometimes locales for sexual pickups. This needs careful research. WilliamSommerwerck (talk) 16:10, 30 April 2011 (UTC)

confused and biased article[edit]

IMHO, this article is confusing nudity with sexuality with eroticism. Nudity is the state of absence of a clothing while sexuality is gender awareness, while eroticism is about desire. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.119.228.239 (talk) 21:37, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
