If everybody walked around naked all the time, would your level of sexual arousal probably increase, decrease, or remain the same?
Imagine you lived in a world where clothes was unnecessary (it was never too cold, etc).
Your level of sexual arousal might increase because you see naked people a lot more, or it might decrease because you get accustomed to seeing it all the time. Which would be true for you?

Remember that this doesn't solely include good-looking people; it also includes people who you find to be very unattractive.

  • Clothing over sexualizes the body and obfuscates the natural courting process by disallowing people to see each other naked to evaluate genetic compatibility.

    Witnessing arousal or non arousal, seeing genital tissues and body image is the natural way to select partners.

    Because of this tendency, our puritanical founding fathers made laws covering up these body parts in order to undermine the natural selection process because that’s what conservatives do. Getting in everything’s way to slow things down by setting up road blocks and glass ceilings in order to artificially create and maintain hierarchies.

    Annoying but true.

    People should give a nude beach a shot and see how great it is to be nude around other people. Unless, of course, you are about using clothing to cover up your flaws rather than fix them by focusing on health and fitness, or, because you enjoy the Puritan conservative social framework.

  • I already have a really high sex drive, and I like it so I don't think it would decrease. Initially I would be extra aroused all the time, but it would be desensitizing after a while. Sexual attraction for me goes deeper than just getting to see a woman naked. I go to swingers clubs, parties events, etc and have been to a lot of nude beaches too. I get used to everyone being naked pretty quick, but I do love seeing everyone naked and being naked in front of everyone. I think it is still exciting because I get comfortable being naked really quickly and that comfort is exciting and being excepted completely as you are. So, all in all probably would stay the same and definitely not decrease.

  • Arousal levels themselves wouldn't decrease but people's level of arousal at nudity would decrease on mass. Part of the reason nudity is arousing is because of the novelty of it. It's Pavlov's dog on a massive cultural scale. It isn't the nudity itself that is stimulating but rather we've been socialized to see nudity and expect sex. This is why people on nude beaches aren't walking around with erections the entire time. The novelty wears off you get used to it and realise that skin is just skin. It happens in nudist colonies too.

  • Would probably decrease. Go take a walk around outside and figure out how many of those people you actually want to see nekid. I don’t know about you but there are a lot o people I don’t wanna look at fully clothed much less naked.

  • Over time u would get use 2 everybody walking around naked. It would be just another thing 2 see. The arousal part would fade the more u see it. Then the less it will effect u. Cause once u seen it. Next time it will be the same.

  • After the first 15 minutes at a nudist or clothing optional resort, nudity just becomes normal. It is not more or less arousing, just the new normal. At least that is my experience.

  • I think if nakedness was allowed/unshameful, we would all be a bit more aroused.

  • As a nudist, I can tell you sexual arousal is not negatively affected.

  • Greatly decrease👎

  • Increase lol

  • It would probably increase at first, then decrease over time.

  • The vast majority of human beings, myself included, would experience a significant decrease in sexual arousal because naked bodies would no longer be visually stimulating. Take some eastern cultures where women often go around topless. The men in these societies aren’t aroused all the time, they’ve become accustomed to seeing it. It would be the same thing as seeing a girl’s hand or her leg or whatever.

  • There would in time be a new equilibrium where the nude body wasn't automatically considered to be sexual. I already know that from participating in social nudity at a naturist park. So I think in time people's sexual arousal wouldn't be any more or less than before.

  • I don't know about the long term, but at least initially, I would be a walking hard-on.

    • "A walking hard-on" that gave me a really weird image in my head haha

    • That's me every day now anyway even without everyone nude lol

    • Well I hope you at least got a laugh out of it.

  • Probably the same. Assuming I grew up in this society, I wouldn't know anything different; it'd be normal to me.

  • Decrease

  • Probably increase.

  • Definitely increase. Which is bad lol

  • I imagine my sexual intensities would decrease over time.

  • My own personal experience. From my early teens just walking around the house alone and naked would get me sexually aroused. When I started going naked in front of my sister and her friends, it just increased my excitement. I started going to a nude beach in my later teens where a large group of people would be naked. It was very arousing for me there too. I had a difficult time keeping my dick soft.

  • actually we know that from ancient japan, sexual arousal doesn't decrease but it does change. peole will find "clothed sex" more appealing, cause being naked is just normal. you see that in ancient japanese pornography. sexual depictions always involve fancy clothing.

  • It would be the same since the fat/unattractive females would still be the boner-killers they are currently, except more so, while the attractive females would still be the boner-inspiring gals they currently are, except more so. So the feels would be more extreme in each direction and therefore cancel each other out.

  • We would build up tolerance and get used to it. So decrease

  • I can't generalize it but my experience tells that if nudity is found around and in abundance, sexual desire decreases. I used to stay naked in my room which later developed into walking nude within house when nobody was there. My sex desire used to be highly charged. I often would fantasize how my mom and sister would like to be without clothes, and it aroused me extremely. I experienced a change later when I found my mom topless in summer. Initially it aroused me greatly. When I started having sex with my ex, we often used to stay nude. After many nude experiences I found that at the end of day my sex would decrease that despite seeing my ex naked, and myself also in same state, sometimes I didn't wish to have sex for more than two rounds.
    If I apply this experience to your question, I feel that strength of arousal diminishes. Nude beaches prove my point.
