Many of the older folks here are totally comfortable with their bodies, even if they don’t exercise regularly or appear to be in “perfect” shape. My age demographic (20s, but also 30s) tends to be much more self-conscious and pre-occupied with body image. I wonder… If nudity and naturism were acceptable or even commonplace among my peer group in the U.S., would people start exercising more? And would they be more mindful of what they put in their mouths since they would no longer be able to mask their bodies with clothing and Spanx?
