SEX FORUM Strip off to beat the blues
STRIPPING naked is officially good for your health, according to a new study. Boffins found that people who shed their clothes also shed their worries at the same time.
The research was carried out online by scientists at Goldsmiths, University of London, and quizzed 850 British adults on the levels of contentment, along with the amount of time spent, completely or partially, naked in public.
It also revealed that nudists are the happiest of us all as they feel better about their bodies and lives on a whole.
And the findings showed that the more time they spent with their kit off, the happier they were.
Dr Keon West said: “The naturists have been saying this for some time.
“But little to no empirical research has investigated whether naturist activity actually makes us happier or why it makes us happier.”
The findings revealed that people experienced ‘immediate and significant improvements in their body-image, self-esteem and life satisfaction’ when in their birthday suits.
We asked Midweek Sport stunna Laura Cooke, from Barrow-in-Furness, whether she’s happier in the nuddy or prefers to keep her assets under wraps.
The 22-year-old said: “Well, as a glamour model, I think my answer is pretty obvious!
“I love being naked and showing off my figure – I don’t see the point in being embarrassed about what God has given you!
“I’ve never had any complaints about my naked body – but I’ve had so many compliments and that has really boosted my self-esteem.
“So I think these scientists are definitely on to something.
“I don’t know if I could ever go as far as being a naturist though, as I don’t think I’d like to go out and do my food shopping with my boobs and fanny on show!
“But I guess, at the end of the day, we all have the same bits so what’s the point in being shy?!”
