By Ferne Arfin. Have you ever wondered whether you could be arrested for public nudity or having sex in a public place in England, Scotland or Wales? The question is not as random as you may think. Lots of people like to sunbathe in the nude. So, is public nudity illegal in the UK?
Pairing nudity with already-popular sports, practices and hobbies is guaranteed to attract attention and the business of eccentrics. We see nudity as an adventure, or even a challenge, putting us outside of our comfort zone and into the ultimate state of vulnerability. And yet, once you strip down—hopefully in a socially-permitting area—you feel an unexpected confidence and release of stress.
Though the thought of open nudity may be anxiety-inducing to some people, to others it can be quite a liberating experience. Before you go outside naked, try spending some time around your house with no clothes on so you get used to the feeling. You can also sleep naked, which will help you get comfortable not having clothes on. When you feel confident enough to go outdoors, try hanging out somewhere private, like a screened-in porch or fenced-off yard, so no one will see you.
