The British Attitude towards Nudity – An infographic by the team at The British Attitude towards Nudity
A few weeks back we hosted a survey on this blog asking our British readers how they feel about public nudity, ahead of International Nude Day, which occurs annually on July 14th. We’re sure you’ll agree the statistics it reveals are interesting, and perhaps even a little surprising too.
Visiting key websites related to both the worldwide and UK naturism movements revealed facts which are remarkable on their own (for example; the stereotypically prudish UK has more naturist-friendly clubs and resorts than the Netherlands, Spain and Italy according to the Naturist Federation), yet some of our survey findings surprised us too.
Here’s a summary of what we discovered:
- Men are four times more likely than women to get naked in public;
- For around 50% of individuals (both sexes) that have never worn their ‘birthday suit’ outside, being body conscious was the reason cited;
- Only 10% of those who have been naked in public stripped off to raise money for a charity (we thought this figure would be much higher!);
- More than half of Brits feel that there should be more opportunities to ditch clothing in public and
- 89% of those who have visited a naked-friendly spa preferred the experience over visiting a regular one.
