article imageNudity ‘No Big Thing’ to Sharon Stone; How About the Rest of Us?

By Carol Forsloff     Aug 25, 2009 in Lifestyle
The National Examiner looks at Sharon Stone through the journalism lens for a great close-up at a special gal. Stone's stripping for a photo brought the actress in the news. Still if nudity is “no big thing,” how about for the rest of us?
The movie star that raised eyebrows in the movie Basic Instinct, where the lovely lassie, well clothed up front, showed a flash of woman’s most intimate area while crossing her lovely legs. It was enough to make the audience particularly interested when they saw the film and looked especially for the daring scene. At age 51 the sexy film star is doing it again, after three kids and a film career that has shown her to be out-of-the-box with her thinking. But with many other people nudity is something that continues to create shock and awe in different areas of the world while in others it produces only a shrug.
Running around bare naked, or next to it, will get you in the news. That’s particularly true if you do something else out of the ordinary while in the buff, like stealing or preparing for trouble, as reported in About. Earlier this year Steve Whitten was caught with his pants off---literally wearing only a thong—while breaking into a woman’s home in Minneapolis. The public is fascinated when someone runs around naked in circumstances where clothes would be more appropriate. But then the public is fascinated with much more than that.
On the beaches and around the swimming pools of Spain, for the past twenty years folks could sit bare-breasted for fun in the sun, no problem. Around the fine hotels of Morocco, they were able to do that as well. While visiting both countries in the 1980’s, I watched all this with glee. My husband was fascinated as well, but for an entirely different reason. For Americans it was unusual to see women, naked just to the waist, sitting out for all to see endowments not displayed in public places, outside of movies, in most places in the United States. Spain has cemented its reputation as the desirable place for sunbathing, according to nudity news because of its free-for-all show of bare bodies on the beaches.
Still even in Spain some folks have their limits. Cadiz, a haven for nudity, has banned nudity on its beaches recently. This was a place where the entire body would be exposed on the beach, but now folks have to pay a fine if they seek to bare it all in public. Some members of that public, however, are up in arms at the very idea, given the freedom Spain has allowed people on beaches to sit naked for fun. Those in favor of the law said nudists have driven off some tourists from the beaches who were offended by nudism. Others declare tourism will be damaged by the new law forbidding it.
That’s the bare naked truth about nakedness in the news for a light-hearted look at lifestyles from Hollywood to the beaches of Spain where the human body continues to be discussed in all its wonders.
