Hilary Swank

Hollywood actress Hilary Swank is igniting controversy by saying in a new magazine article that she has been nude in front of her boyfriend's 6-year-old son. The star tells Marie Claire that she never wears anything to bed and that means her partner's son often sees her naked. In the article, Swank says, "My boyfriend's son is 6 years old, and you wonder at what age you should stop walking around nude. Every morning he comes into the bedroom, and you're just nude. But he doesn't look twice; he doesn't think about it yet." Qualifying her Marie Claire remarks during a TV interview on "TODAY," the star added, "I think every family's different and you have to know what's right for you and your family." But on MSNBC's "Dr. Nancy," top psychologist Jeff Gardere says, "Hilary, you're not this child's mom. What if things don't work out with your present boyfriend ...? Who knows what might happen in the future; what his psycho-sexual adjustment may be. It's not a good thing."

The child may grow up different from his friends: he may be WELL ADJUSTED.

The thing that gets me is not the nudity but the lack of moral values. Can she not get a man or something that she has to shack up? THAT is setting a BAD moral example.
Never mind the nudity.

And ya boys look. Don't girls?

That made no sense? It's in front of her step kik, so yea, she has a man... duh...

The whole reason we liken nudity to sexuality is because we are taught that way. The simple FACT of the matter is that in countries where nudity is excepted, the children (especially older) do NOT think that way. They do NOT see a naked woman, or man, and think how nice it would be to do this that or the other.... Instead they see a naked person and they simply walk on by as if nothing is out of the ordinary, because nothing is out of the ordinary. As a result, these countries also have a lower rate of adultery as well, because they are not looking for sex around every corner, they are not tempted by the nudity of the opposite sex. They look for "real" relationships. Also less teen pregnancies. If in doubt, do the research... I did! (Psychology Major)

Get someone who is addicted to sex or nudity and show them a picture of a beautiful woman naked. At first they will be happy and perhaps aroused. But after seeing the same person over and over and over again, they lose interest. Why? Because they already seen it, it no longer interests them. I've done this experiment.

We think of nudity as bad or sexual for only a few simple reasons...

#1, as a child someone, at some point, yelled at us or scolded us for looking at, trying to look at, touching ourself or being naked. When you yell at a child it imprints a very strong memory and impression in their minds and they do not forget.

#2 Media tells us stories of sexual predators, and we tend to think it's extremely abundant. While it is abundant, if you do the research, again, i have, you will find that the number of cases has dropped considerably since the 40's and 50's. We have more access to media now-a-days, so we simply hear about it more.

The harder we try to prevent something, the more likely it is to happen. Case in point, Prohibition in the U.S. from the 20's to the early 30's. Alcohol was made illegal, yet you could get an illegal drink pretty much everywhere you looked. The only ones not drinking were the conservatives. Even some of them were known to have a private stash hidden away for "special" occasions. Marijuana is illegal, yet if you want it I can guarantee you wouldn't have any trouble getting it. Since marijuana became a schedule 1 drug, the amount of marijuana on the streets have quadrupled.

My point is, that if we as Americans would take a backseat for a generation or two and laxed our attitudes on nudity, sexual crimes and thought of sexuality would change drastically, for the better...

In America it's becoming more and more accepted that "we", especially our children, are becoming more and more "Desensitized" towards violence. There are so many movies, t.v. shows and video games that contain bloody violent acts that the things that would once shock us or leave us cowering in under the covers from fear are less affective to us. Fewer and fewer people disagree with this.

It stands to reason, that the same thing would happen with nudity. If we saw it every day in our homes and on the street, we would get less and less affected by seeing it. Fewer and fewer people would stop to gawk and less and less would have these deviant thoughts of sex if the general public didn't see nudity as a sexual thing and it was simply a normal everyday thing. (Nudity not sex!) We can see this in other more nakedness liberal countries. Take native African (and other) tribes. The ones that go around letting it all hang out. Do you ever hear of reports about rape or pedophilia among these people? No you do not! Again, I have done the research.
