Nudism Reduces Sexual Violence

We need to teach males to limit male pressure by not hunting a mate while nude. Hormones and nudism do not mix. I did a study of nudism posted to usenet from 1994 to 2004, assigning ages and genders to nudist magazine scans. Most of the magazine scans were from magazines from nudism's rapid growth period, the 1960s. They brought people in. But they were 90 percent female, and the frequency for each age matched the probability of pregnancy for that age, while nudist participation was the inverse. I advocated a more gender neutral and realistic age distribution in 2003 and it worked....people began posting more realistically on the web.

I also did a study of pornography vs rape in the United States. The US African American community has 9 times the child predators as the white community yet nothing is done to protect them except to bust a few pimps now and then. If its "our" children we are protective. If its "their" children we ignore their problems. After advising him of the study in February 2009, former US Attorney General Eric Holder called the American people "essentially a nation of cowards" in failing to openly discuss the issue of race.

1) The birth rate for females 10 to 14 years old in 2002 was 0.2 per 1000 for whites and 1.8 per 1000 for blacks.
2) The peak age for female rape victims is 14.
3) 88% of rape victims are of the same race as the rapist.
4) African Americans are 13.6% of the US but are found in less than 1% of porn portrayals (from a study of US sales of adult magazines on eBay).
5) In the early 1980s the Meese Commission blamed pornography as the root cause for rape. The evidence suggests the opposite, that pornography reduces sexual violence by 89% when White and African American cultures are compared.
6)Pope John Paul II said, "The human body can remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendor 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"

While nudism is not porn, the depiction of nudity should also reduce rape. So I did a poll asking if there was a correlation based on the study results. Does nudism reduce sexual violence? 81% said nudism should be universally legal, another 10% said nudism reduces sexual violence. 6% said it had no effect, and 3% said it increased sexual violence.

When does nakedness plays a negative role with regard to the value of the person? The biggest debate on this topic is the evolution of child pornography legal theories in the United States.

Early sex has negative consequences. Child brides are often disempowered, dependent on their husbands and deprived of their fundamental rights to health, education and safety. Neither physically nor emotionally ready to become wives and mothers, child brides are at greater risk of experiencing dangerous complications in pregnancy and childbirth, becoming infected with HIV/AIDS and suffering domestic violence. With little access to education and economic opportunities, they and their families are more likely to live in poverty.

The legal concept of child pornography in the US came from a District Court ruling in the mid 1970s that found a German book teaching the birds and the bees using teens was offensive in the days when community standards could vary from place to place. "Photos by Carl" were legal in several Nevada counties until community standards were changed to national standards. The Meese Commission on Pornography had false ideas about porn.

Non-sexual child nudity is legal in the US: On April 25, 1990, a group of FBI agents and officers of the San Francisco Police Department raided the studio of photographer Jock Sturges, seizing his cameras, his prints, his computer — everything relating to his work as an internationally recognized fine art photographer, much of whose work involves nude portraiture of children and adolescents. The law officers discovered that they had taken on one of the art elite’s own as art communities, both in San Francisco and nationally, rallied around Sturges, his work, and the legitimacy of respectful nude photography of children and adolescents. Eventually, a San Francisco grand jury refused to indict Sturges on any charges.

Sturges’s work was again under legal attack. Grand juries in Montgomery, Alabama, and Franklin, Tennessee, have indicted bookseller Barnes & Noble on child pornography and obscenity charges for selling Sturges’s book, Radiant Identities, as well as the work of British photographer David Hamilton. Grand juries have been impaneled in two additional states and others may follow, according to Sturges. Supporters of Randall Terry and his organization, Operation Rescue — best known for their protests against abortion clinics — take credit for bringing the books to the attention of prosecutors by such actions as physically destroying books in Barnes & Noble stores. These actions were unsuccessful.

In 1993 the Clearwater, FL Internet Crime Unit announced they have reached the 1,000 clients level in their internet chat room on usenet later deduced to be news:// that no longer exists.

After Roth v. US in the late 1950s the golden age of nudist magazines of the 1960s also resulted in pseudo-nudist Jaybird magazines. Child pseudo-nudism began in the early 1990s in Czechoslavokia when a husband and wife team produced VHS videos that after their divorce were separated into Eurovid and Helios Natura. In the early 2000s pseudo-nudist factories were set up in the Ukraine in Kiev and Yalta where western photographers married Ukrainian teachers and adopted girls who were schooled in a closed environment. They produced the "etNymph" "Etaphro" and "Ukrainian Angels" nude child modeling series. They were shut down after the Ukraine revoked the legal loopholes they required to exist.

In April 2003 the Yahoo Groups Candyman group sting operation netted thousands across the globe. It should have raised the issue of the FBI being the largest distributor of child pornography in effect creating the problem. Most if not almost all of the child porn on the internet was reposted from the FBI's collection. It ebbed and flowed depending upon whether sting operations were distributing it or not.

In the spring of 2006 a young girl from Illinois posted nude pictures of herself in France on Webshots, Facebook, and Myspace. A predator flew to meet her at the St Louis airport and was arrested. It became national headlines with Congress debating and passing a new law, passing the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act. A joint Russian-US sting operation on the web was set up in the summer of 2006 called imgsrc after a meeting between President Putin and George Bush during the G8 summit that was held on 15–17 July 2006 in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The site crossed off the user names of those detected by it.

The Operation Spade international police investigation into child pornography began in October 2010 and by 2013 covered over 50 countries. Almost 350 people were arrested internationally.

Before Eric Holder became US Attorney General 99% of all child porn on the internet was reposted from the US government's collection. The government supplied child porn age distribution was skewed toward infants and toddlers to create higher conviction rates and more outrage. Prosecutions have been at the county level since then with ample NSA assistance. For a very short time between Feb. 20 to March 4, 2015 the Playpen sting allowed images of children being sexually assaulted to become public when the FBI no other way to identify the people accessing the sites. The National Security Agency's domestic surveillance program aggressively documents child pornography.

The impact of rape is equally devastating regardless of the age of the victim. Male pressure, alpha male attitudes, locker room attitudes, and hip hop culture create environments conducive to rape. Lack of supervision creates opportunity, the opposite of which is the case of Islam requiring a trusted escort for all females clothed head to toe. One solution is to train boys that girls are not an automatic reflection of their need to reproduce. Europe's relaxed attitudes towards nudity are correct. Nudism will accomplish that goal. Nudism reduces sexual violence.
