I think the problem with it is just that, you know... Things happen with the body. Everyone wants to pretend that they'd be just fine around a bunch of naked people. Get back to me when you wind up having some guy putting his leg up on a stool and airing his nutsack out around the food bar, and come on guys... I know I've gotten a boner when the breeze blew the right way a few times, how awkward and embarrassing it would it be to be running around with random erections? That's not even mentioning the female part of it... You know, they DO get aroused too and not to mention more lol
Long story short, somewhere at some point in time do to all this awkwardness, we learned that clothes not only help to fend off the environmental factors, but factors of awkwardness and what not in humans. I just don't think that we've gotten to the point as a society where if a man has an errant erection at a dinner party, or a woman's juices start flowing at said dinner part, that people could just excuse it like "Oh excuse my arousal," and move on. You know someone's going to laugh, someone else is going to get turned on and the whole thing will be rife with sexual tension as everybody wonders if it's on the verge of becoming an orgy.
Yeah as you can tell I've thought about these kinds of things. What's more interesting ( and hilarious ) to think about is the fact that at some point in time, some poor unfortunate humans have lived through the embarrassment that makes them cover themselves. I mean, ever wonder why we wear underwear? Here's a hint: It came before toilet paper.
All that being said I could hang out with nudists, but I just wouldn't be into that kind of lifestyle. I don't care how progressive or whatever you are, you can't spend that much time around nipples and so on without it effecting you, and if you actually do desensitize yourself to it... Then that's horrible, why the f*ck would you want to ruin breasts for yourself? There's a reason we have lingerie, we all know what they likely look like under there, the mystery is half the fun.
