SEX FO­RUM Strip off to beat the blues

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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?!”
