Google is just a tiny company but what about other subjects, like country/countries. How many pics of yourself could be taken daily without you knowing?  Huh Big Grin Big Grin

Thant's the thing. You should care about the things you can't see, not the other way.

...but again, being on the island is usually the only thing I do care about and if somebody want to watch my naked *** they'll better enjoy view Big Grin

To return to the original question in the topic heading:
In my opinion it is the relentless media obsession with the "perfect body" whatever that is - for example the plague of adverts which arrive each spring asking if your body is beach ready. 
With such pressure being applied by some of the best professional persuaders available it isn't surprising that so few younger people who have been subjected to it for the whole of their lives are reluctant to strip off in public.

Perhaps the recent media attention to Plus size models may help to address the concerns created by the 'is your body ready for the beach' articles?

Hopefully! But anyone who's been on a naturist beach knows that there's a huge range of body types/sizes.
