The poet Ennius (ca. 239-169 BC) declared that "exposing naked bodies among citizens is the beginning of public disgrace (flagitium)." Roman attitudes toward nudity differed from those of the Greeks, whose ideal of masculine excellence was expressed by the nude male body in art and in such real-life venues as athletic contests. Nowadays, nudity is the state of wearing no clothing. The wearing of clothing is exclusively a human characteristic. Some people have a psychological aversion to nudity, called gymnophobia. Many people regard nudity to be inherently sexual and erotic. Full frontal nudity describes a state of full nudity with the subject facing forward with the whole front of the body exposed, including intimate parts. In this issue: The most public form of streaking is running naked before huge crowds at sporting events.
