POPE JOHN PAUL
The famous quote from Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body is: "The human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendour and its beauty... Nakedness as such is not to be equated with physical shamelessness... Immodesty is present only when nakedness plays a negative role with regard to the value of the person...The human body is not in itself shameful... Shamelessness (just like shame and modesty) is a function of the interior of a person."

Fine. So what's your point? A screaming list of nudists doesn't prove anything. I still don't want to see most of my acquaintances naked.
How is this LGBT?

Of course nudity is not always for sexual gratification. I've known that for over 20 years and many other people in the world know that. My question is, what is your source of this information to know that all these people are nudists?
Also, it rather undermines the credibility of your statement when you list fictional characters like Adam & Eve. In that fairy tale, they were created nude and knew of nothing else to compare their state of being with in order to call it nudism. That would be like saying Lucy the Australopithecus was a nudist, back in a time when clothing didn't even exist. And Lady Godiva wasn't a nudist; she rode nude through the town to protest the taxes her husband was imposing on the citizens, and she first sent out an order that everyone must remain within their houses so as to not see her nude (hardly a protest if nobody is there to view it). If she was a nudist she would have proudly strolled through town with everybody there. And Pope John Paul (I'm assuming you mean PJP II) wasn't a nudist either; he just understood that the human body was intrinsically beautiful and not automatically a source of lust.
Regarding your statements about shame at the end, you are correct. There is nothing shameful about the nude body, and nothing immodest about being nude, being seen nude, and being unafraid to be seen nude.Source(s): naturist since 1990

Regarding your original question, yes we definitely agree with that. Indeed it is the view of many Naturists I know that clothing, especially skimpy clothes, are far 'sexier' than complete nudity, because clothes tease the eye of the observer and draw attention to parts of the wearer's body in a way that nudity does not.
As for your list, we also have such a list, but prefer to keep it to people we know exist or have existed - so it does not include Adam & Eve! Off the top of my head, you forgot Helen Mirren, who was very pleased to receive the "Naturist of the Year" award we gave her a few years ago.
Edit: Oops! you didn't forget her, but she was still pleased to receive the award.

To most people, nudity is just what people simply physically are. For better or for worse, depends on your point of view. Your "screaming" list (please don't type in all caps) is full of people who have accomplished a lot in life and have learned (and dared) to think for themselves for a change. Sadly, most people don't and just think the way their perverted culture tells them to think. There's nothing wrong with that, but it is pretty lazy if you ask me.
Do I "agree" that nudity isn't always for sexual gratification? Dah... I just got out of the pool after swimming laps and I'm sitting here air-drying while answering your question. And yes, I'm naked. I swam that way because it's easier and I didn't have a reason not to. And I'll eventually get dressed when I have to go out. What's the hurry? Where's the sexual gratification in that? Or am I missing something (other than being comfortable while I wrap this up)?

Every summer day across Europe probably 200,000 girls sunbath topless on beaches, next to pools, in parks, on roof tops, balconies, on the back patio, all in perfect view of the public or at least half the neighborhood. 98% of them are doing it strictly to get the tan. They couldn't care less if anybody sees them. Which would indicate to me there is nothing sexual involved in it.

Popes don't have the last word. Da Lawd made Adam and Eve (and Steve)"ashamed" so that they covered their parts with leaves. Just shake you leaf first; there might be a spider lurking there.

We never wear clothes at home, unless we have guests, or unless it's really cold.
Clothes, especially underwear are very restrictive, and there's nothing more liberating than being 'free'.

The thought of Jim Baccus nude just made me put my clothes on

ADAM AND EVE?
ORly? Told you so themselves, did they?
I don't care if you want to run around starkers. Just don't do it in front of my house, okay?
We hit -1C last night, with -3 windchill today. You really would NOT enjoy it.
