NAKED TRUTH




. . . What do you think? I think Twain was both right and wrong. Indeed, clothes make the man – they give them an uncontested charm that can be instantly pleasing to the eyes. And indeed, to be naked can have little or no influence on the society, but being in the flesh has its own benefits, understandably, not walking down the street naked; that is a symbol of unrefined exhibitionism, but being bare within one’s own dominion brings an element of primitive pleasure, something that can simply be found when one is free of bodily accoutrements. It is here that I thought immediately of something most beautifully befitting by Sartre, he said, People who live in society have learnt how to see themselves, in mirrors, as they appear to their friends. I have no friends: is that why my flesh is so naked?”
