Here's a suggestion:

Stop treating sex and nudity as taboo or risqué and accept it as a normal and natural part of who we are as a species. Let's put away the old ideologies of shame and ignorance and progress ourselves by showing a level of maturity about these mundane and common facts. Society needs to stop acting like a adolescent (i.e. thinking with one's genitalia) regarding the subjects of nudity and sex. Clothes service a vital purpose in our lives -protection from the elements, our environment, breast shag, and the sight of obese and elderly body-types; economic growth and marketing; social statements; the discrete transport of weapons, explosives, and contraband; etc.- but the lack thereof should not be cause for alarm or disgust (in most cases). Maturity in dealing with these natural traits should be a hallmark of our sentient and cognitive existence. Reason drives us to advance beyond our current lackluster approach and reach a state where such trivial things no longer matter.

I double-dare you. :)
I made a dAforum post: Nudity and Sex: Deal with it! It was so good I had to make it into a deviation. Feel free to comment on both posts. I would have placed this deviation under the category of Satire but it just uses satire rather than being in a satirical format. So I chose Editorial, which is a more apt description.

EDIT:

Alright, since many have taken this the wrong way, I'll explain a few things here. Firstly, I decided to place this in the Satire category. It is more obvious to me now that such is a better place for this. Secondly, as you might have guessed from the category change, this is a Satirical work that is mean to draw attention to the errors in logic for those who are pro-censorship. And just to note, Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal was a major inspiration for this work.

And to make things even more clear:

1. Sarcasm. The references to elderly persons and the others was meant to be facetious.
2. Audience. If I were to aim this little diatribe at a particular group, I might would focus on those who are not mature, regardless of age. This is why I use the childish quip, "I double-dare you."
3. Intent. This was never meant to be take seriously. However, it was still designed to state a point.
4. Message. To clear away the debris and expose the meaning behind this, I tell you this: sex and nudity are just facts of life.

Excellent job. I think this gets the point across quite well. Nudity is just a part of life.

I can't face sex with women or female nudity, even though I used to be able to. I don't consider myself immature for not liking the sight of it. As a teenager and when I was younger, I was completely fine with it. Now I have developed an outright fear of sex with women and female nudity. I am completely fine with seeing men, however. Would you say that I am one of the people you refer to in this piece?

Thank you!

If you can be mature about the discussion, then no.

True. Though in the right circumstances, the interior of a human can be just has compelling... though not in a sexual way (at least for myself).

I like this. Your thoughts on nudity and sex are correct (at least in my book). We were born nude and we were made for reproduction. Thats not to say that I don't have my own views on when sex is appropriate, but they are just that, MY views. I don't need to force them on anyone else and I don't want to either. I accept all human beings and sex and nudity don't change that.
