Advertisers don't actually want you to feel good about yourself.
Bob, this article nailed what so many naturists (and others) have felt for years. I was born in the 50s and the only skin care products I was familiar with and people I knew used was Ponds Cold Cream, Noxzema, Ivory Soap, Baby Oil and Vaseline. They worked fine and my family's skin remained clear and youthful into their 80s. Mom died at 96 and she barely had a wrinkle. Of course we all know "Black don't crack" so that helps a lot. ; ) For the past few years, we are seeing women and men of different sizes, colors, skin types and untraditional relationships in commercials. That's a HUGE step forward. Having articles like what you've shared and Jessica's is so needed and I just subscribed to her podcast. I'd love to see her as a keynote speaker at Naturist festivals and conventions.
What you have said is absolutely correct....Nice Article....
There's an interesting documentary series "The Century of the Self" that deep dives into public relations and marketing. Worth a watch on You Tube, and synopsis here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Century_of_the_Self
Nailed it, as usual! But ..... scrotum deodorant?? Really???
I wrote a few things about that too, on my website/blog/thing, like https://zjuzdme.org/what-beauty.html
brilliant! I wish it wasn't so but you certainly named it well.
