It reminds me of what I read in one of Frank Herbert’s Dune novels once. I really like google

, located it for me. Here it’s:
There was this drylander who was asked which was more significant, a literjon of water or a vast pool of water? The drylander thought a minute and then said: “The literjon is more important. No single individual could own of plain water. But a literjon you could hide under your cloak and run away with it. No one would know.”

We treat nudity, and sexuality, as matters which are really so precious, we literally have to hide it from others as we worry that, exposed, everyone would try and get it. In a land where it’s everywhere, yet, there’s no need for such fear. In a way, many western cultures are already like this in relation to many arab cultures, for example Saudi Arabia. There, they worry seeing anything but the slits of the eyes of girls for fear a man would be tempted by one. Here we are apalled at this notion that folks would think that guys should be quite so weak, but we don’t live in Saudi Arabia; there, apparently, they are; and it is engrained into them in their culture. We just have exactly the same idea merely more average; here it is fine to see not just a girl’s face, but her hair as well, and much more besides, but most tend to draw the line at some point of skimpy clothes in public. Nudists, ofcourse, go beyond even this, although typically only in some specific settings (at the very least nudists have a tendency to avoid being nude where it is not legal to do so).

I’d argue the issue of sexuality is rather similar, together with the one caveat that kids and pregnancy, STDs and STIs are also factors there.

Regardless, my point stands; I believe that with enough dialogue individuals will realize that the advantages to being more liberal, both clothes shrewd and sexuality shrewd, while at the exact same time educating ourselves more so that we avoid the blunders that makes of some such puritans, will be better for everyone.
