While there is nothing very wrong or unacceptable about living a nudist lifestyle, followers of it should understand that few places consider this as inappropriate behavior. Asian nations are very particular about the behavior of devotees in temples and any attempt to violate these unwritten rules is considered as insult to the religion.
As a matter of fact, social nudity is completely unacceptable in most parts of the world and Asia is one among them. Three French tourists were arrested by the Cambodian authorities for taking obscene pictures inside the Angkor Wat premises. These men were spotted inside the Banteay Kdei Temple. It was found that they were taking pictures of each other naked inside the temple.
Despite the fact that the French tourists admitted their mistake, the local authorities and law enforcement agencies did not hesitate from taking stringent action against them. The incident came after several pictures of Asian women posing nude at the Cambodian temples went viral on the World Wide Web.
Authorities and security officials at these Cambodian temples owed to take strict action in case any such occurrences happen in the near future. According to a local group, entry of tourists should be restricted into the temple. Furthermore, a lot of people also say that their activities should be closely monitored in order to prevent such incidents.
Experts believe that these activities involve exhibitionists and not necessarily nudists. It is believed that nudists follow certain unwritten rules and regulations. Their intention is not to disturb others or hurt their religious sentiments. On the other hand, nudists should also enquire whether or not nudism is practiced in certain part of the world before they decide to go cloth-free.
While this doesn't mean that people condemn nudism and are against it, people only urge followers of nudism to abstain in indulging in such activities that draw attention and show naturism in negative light. Nobody would want the tourist inflow to this part of the world to get hampered such stray incidents.
