“No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training…what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” ~ Socrates

I like Buff Butts and I can not lie:

Nudity doesn’t have to be sexual. It can be beautiful, and inspiring, in the way that Greek and Roman statues were and are.

Warning: many Male, Female, Old, Young, Black, White…Buff Butts ahead:
