Nude teens plymouth
Unfortunately, few others have chosen to replicate their research, possibly due to the reasons outlined by Yates. Four relevant research studies are reviewed and assessed: 1) Paul Okami's 1998 study, "Early childhood exposure to parental nudity ... Yates (1978) theorises that most parents are unaware of these studies or the patterns they reflect for two reasons. First, nudists are still widely (and erroneously) perceived in our society as sexual deviants.
Fortunately for nudist families, several researchers have taken an interest in the subject of nudity and children's development. Those who are not nudists generally have no direct personal experiences to disprove the fallacy; many nudists are afraid to reveal their status for fear of being ridiculed, prosecuted or persecuted. Second, research into human sexuality provided amazing advances in our knowledge of adult sexuality in the last one hundred years and this was seen as appropriate, as adults are clearly sexual beings. Here no teenagers lie under one blanket and kiss each other as this can be observed on a public beach.' We only hope that more people in America will accept our point of view and that one day public beaches will be provided for us as in Europe." (p 151) Eric Berne points out that ... how parents feel about nudity is passed on to their children by their own behaviour regarding it.
