I hate society's narrow views on nudity. Grrr.
Nudity is natural, not erotic. Humans used to only wear clothes when it was cold or when they needed to protect themselves from the sunlight. Unfortunately, most of society associates nudity with eroticism but if you look at advertisements which are often viewed as innapropraite for children the image is suggestive; you don't see a 100% naked person you seejust enough to tease your desires and leave the rest to you imagine. Also, I'd say that most if not all of nudity found in the media has sexual undertones, that's why you when you see a nudist camp you think "SUPER ORGO PORNO PARTY!" from all the porn you've seen and the sexual ads you've seen.
eroticism=nude people acting in a sexually arousing manner
nudity=nude people barbecuing, sun tanning, swimming and anything you'd normally do in a camp only in a more natural setting.
