Having advanced degrees and how it relates to nudism

Return to Discussions

I have four advanced degrees and with each accomplishment educationally, I find my need to being naked increases with more knowledge. I would like to meet other men who find themselves not only more comfortable with nudism but wanting to share this simple lifestyle with others.

I am a family therapist and teach
psychology at the college level.

I was reared in a very straight
conservative tradition family that did not talk about sexuality, or even nudism. I now live at a nudist
resort. The freedom to express one natural lifestyle is very rewarding, too the
sun and wind blowing on your body.

I have a Bachelor of Music Education and a Masters in Dramatics. I have many credit hours past my Masters. In Kentucky teachers are required to get their Masters within a certain amount of time after starting your first teaching job. I always took workshops in the summer to help me in my teaching of high school theatre. I was known as the "Workshop Junkie" LOL.

All my students, faculty, administration knew I was gay and married to a man. Very few faculty members knew I was a nudist but now it's pretty much common knowledge. I think some of my students found my TN profile. LOL

Maybe its one of those things where the more educated you are the more you are aware that nudity is just normal. Maybe that corresponds to curiosity as well. I think it plays into questioning things as well. I find that, unlike many people I encounter, I look into topics, research issues, ask questions, and can approach situations with and open mind, looking at things from different angles before arriving at a conclusion.

I think there is a lot of truth to the notion that having advanced degrees promotes curiosity and an interest in researching. I did a lot of research before I took then plunge. Im glad I did because I discovered health benefits (physical and mental), the written and unwritten rules surrounding nudism/naturism, including the laws in different jurisdictions. I always believe in being prepared. It also helped me get past the cultural norms that it is deviant, strange, etc. And when I decided to go forward and shared my interest with my wife she thought it was strange and worried about any negative impact it might have on my career and family if I was discovered to be a nudist. What I learned I shared with her and she relaxed about it. Its still not her thing but she doesnt give me any grief or push back about it.

I have two advanced degrees, one at the masters level and the other at the doctoral level. I was raised in a strictly-textile environment, and the only nudity I was exposed to was in the locker room on swim team (which was kind of the opposite extreme, in a good way). Because my degree is of a medical nature, I had to get comfortable with having other people be exposed. Even though that didn't apply to me, it forced me to realize that it is not as big a deal as some make it out to be. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that the Europeans and those in other parts of the world have a much saner view of nudity. Having advanced degrees helped a little, because it taught me that most of what society tells us to believe is total self-serving bullshit. Does that count? Furthermore, God's plan is much better: we were made to be nude in the beginning.

The average IQ of the general population is 100 - by definition.
The average IQ of high school graduates is 105. Certainly, there are plenty of people who graduate from high school who have IQs well below 105.
The average IQ of college graduates is 115 -- four year degree.
Average for Ph.D, M.D. is 125.

I believe the more you study and the more you know, the more you question social norms and constructs. "Does this really make sense?" "Is this really important?"

When you have to prove or substantiate everything you say, it's natural to question what other people say.

I believe that leads many to question whether clothing is really necessary.

I think nudism has nothing to do with degrees and IQ. To be nude is a matter of feeling. All people can sense the freedom of nudity. At a nudist beach there are no worker or professors, there are only nude women and men and kids.

RE:Having advanced degrees and how it relates to nudism

I have a BA and never pursued an advanced degree. When I took courses and talked with people in fields I was interested in, I felt like they were less curious and too dogmatic. They lost fascination and put knowledge into too many silos. In the field of medicine and psychology, for example, I was put off on how it was all focused on illness and dysfunction and not health and wellness. I was so fascinated with the genome project about 30 years ago and felt deeply disappointed with their conclusions that a good part of us consists of "junk DNA." Why couldn't they just say we don't understand it yet, vs the arrogance that if we don't understand it must be worthless? Luckily these fields have come a long way.
Knowledge like clothes gives us a lot to hide behind. Super intelligent people are not always smart in applying knowledge, and uneducated people can have canny insight and wisdom. Like most things, balance is important.
As far as nudism and advanced degrees, I'm curious if it departs from the average. I imagine people with very low IQs don't claim any isms and highly educated ones have jobs which offer more opportunity and choices. I don't have the means to travel to nudist resorts or public places as a single dad in the Midwest. I refuse to identify with nudism that discriminates against my sons and me. But I continue to question the need for clothing.

I would make no claim to causality regarding education and IQ vs. nudism, only correlation.

Nudity Correlation

Those higher in intellect, or openness to experience, were more likely to swear around other people, buy organic food, create art, eat spicy breakfasts, not follow a sports team closely, do car maintenance on their own, and to lounge around the house without clothes on.

Interesting! I'd never consider putting those things together but it describes the kind of people I'm most comfortable with.
