I am not a naturist: I do not think we should be naked all the time, I do not think we are all inherently beautiful, but I do wish that here in the UK we had a healthier relationship with nudity.

When I was a child, I had an aged relative who lived in a tiny village in Norfolk. Two or three doors down the road lived a married couple who were naturists. One summer afternoon I was walking towards the little grocery shop in the village centre, and passing the garden of this infamous — in my extended family and probably in the village, too — couple and I saw a man in his 50s pushing a lawnmower back and forth while wearing nothing but a tiny, tiny, thong.

I was scandalised, as were all my family, except for the year-old we were visiting. But why? Our bodies are not inherently and constantly sexual. There are naked public baths in many parts of the world, and there are many, many nude beaches in the rest of Europe. Our British attitude towards nudity as an aberration, as a provocation, makes us hate ourselves.

Infantilizing them and stripping them of all things that make them individuals creates a culture in which Black women are no longer seen as people, but objects used for individual male pleasure.

Along with a deflated sense of self-worth, these stereotypes can also influence Black girls—notably poor ones—that their sense of worth and an escape from poverty can be found through their sexualization. By reclaiming the sexuality that was robbed of them by men, they have introduced a new problem of body dimorphism as Black girls face the pressures to recreate themselves in the images being presented.

In an NPR interview with Professor Herbert Samuels at LaGuardia Community College in New York and Professor Mireille Miller-Young at UC Santa Barbara, they talk about sexual stereotypes of black bodies in America and how even in sex work, already a dangerous job, black women are treated much worse than their counterparts due to the effects of their over-sexualization and objectification in society.

In the s, a South African woman named Sarah Baartman was known as "Hottentot Venus" and her body was paraded around in London and Paris where they looked at her exotic features such as large breasts and behind. Her features were deemed lesser and oversexual. The image of Asian women in Hollywood cinema is directly linked to sexuality as essential to any imagining about the roles they play as well as her actual appearance in popular culture.

Asian female fatale's hypersexualized subjection is derived from her sexual behaviour that is considered as natural to her particular race and culture. Two types of Asian stereotypes that are commonly found in media are the Lotus Flower and the Dragon Lady. The Lotus Flower archetype is the "self-sacrificing, servile, and suicidal Asian women. She attracts with her soft, unthreatening, and servile femininity while concealing her hard, dangerous, and domineering nature.

Starting from the time of white colonization of Native American land, some Native American women have been referred to as "squaw", an Algonquin word for vagina. Latina characters that embody the hot Latina stereotype in film and television is marked by easily identifiable behavioral characteristics such as "'addictively romantic, sensual, sexual and even exotically dangerous', [29] self-sacrificing, dependent, powerless, sexually naive, childlike, pampered, and irresponsible".

The Cantina Girl markers are "'great sexual allure', teasing, dancing, and 'behaving in an alluring fashion. The Vamp representation "uses her intellectual and devious sexual wiles to get what she wants. This has led many to see the Latin people as "what is morally wrong" with the United States.

Some believe it to be wrong simply because the interpretation of this culture seems to go against white, Western culture. This sexualization can also be linked to certain stereotypical jobs. The image of the Latina woman often is not in the business world but in the domestic. Domestic servants, maids, and waitresses are the typical "media-engendered" roles that make it difficult for Latinas to gain "upward mobility" despite the fact that many hold PhDs.

In the Dominican Republic, women are frequently stereotyped as sultry and sexual as the reputation of Dominican sex workers grows.

The American Psychological Association APA in its Report looked at the cognitive and emotional consequences of sexualization and the consequences for mental and physical health, and impact on development of a healthy sexual self-image.

According to models of objectification, viewing someone as a body induces de-mentalization, stripping away their psychological traits, a study suggests that instead, a body focus strips a person of agency self-control and action and competence and instead increases perceptions of experience emotion and sensation.

Some cultural critics have postulated that over recent decades children have evidenced a level of sexual knowledge or sexual behaviour inappropriate for their age group. The causes of this premature sexualization that have been cited include portrayals in the media of sex and related issues, especially in media aimed at children; the marketing of products with sexual connotations to children, including clothing; [36] the lack of parental oversight and discipline ; access to adult culture via the internet; and the lack of comprehensive school sex education programs.

For girls and young women in particular, the APA reports that studies have found that sexualization has a negative impact on their " self-image and healthy development". The APA cites the following as advertising techniques that contribute to the sexualization of girls: [8].

Studies have found that thinking about the body and comparing it to sexualized cultural ideals may disrupt a girl's mental concentration, and a girl's sexualization or objectification may undermine her confidence in and comfort with her own body, leading to emotional and self-image problems, such as shame and anxiety.

Research has linked sexualization with three of the most common mental health problems diagnosed in girls and women: eating disorders, low self-esteem, and depression or depressed mood. Research suggests that the sexualization of girls has negative consequences on girls' ability to develop a healthy sexual self-image.

A result of the sexualization of girls in the media is that young girls are "learning how to view themselves as sex objects". Some commercial products seen as promoting the sexualization of children have drawn considerable media attention:. The report noted that overall prevalence was limited but this was based on a very narrow research brief.

Whilst this shows that not all High street retailers were aiming products deemed sexualized by the researchers, the research cannot be taken out of context and used to say that there is not an issue of sexualization.

Sexualization has also been a subject of debate for academics who work in media and cultural studies. Here, the term has not been used to simply to label what is seen as a social problem, but to indicate the much broader and varied set of ways in which sex has become more visible in media and culture. The terms " pornification " and " pornographication " have also been used to describe the way that aesthetics that were previously associated with pornography have become part of popular culture, and that mainstream media texts and other cultural practices "citing pornographic styles, gestures and aesthetics" have become more prominent.

According to McNair, both developments can be set in the context of a wider shift towards a "striptease culture" which has disrupted the boundaries between public and private discourse in late modern Western culture, and which is evident more generally in cultural trends which privilege lifestyle, reality, interactivity, self-revelation and public intimacy.

Children and adolescents spend more time engaging with media than any other age group. This is a time in their life that they are more susceptible to information that they receive.

Children are getting sex education from the media, little kids are exposed to sexualized images and more information than ever before in human history but are not able to process the information, they are not developmentally ready to process it, and this impacts their development and behavior.

Sexualization of young girls in the media and infantilization of women creates an environment where it becomes more acceptable to view children as "seductive and sexy". Sexualization also contributes to sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse "where 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused during childhood". The Australian writers, Catharine Lumby and Kath Albury [50] have suggested that sexualization is "a debate that has been simmering for almost a decade" and concerns about sex and the media are far from new.

Much of the recent writing on sexualization has been the subject of criticism that because of the way that it draws on "one-sided, selective, overly simplifying, generalizing, and negatively toned" evidence [51] and is "saturated in the languages of concern and regulation".

The sexualization of women being influenced by society is a problem that should be avoided due to its impact on how women value and present themselves. The way society shapes ones personal interest is presented in a book review of Girls Gone Skank by Patrice Oppliger , [55] Amanda Mills states that "consequently, girls are socialized to participate in their own abuse by becoming avid consumers of and altering their behavior to reflect sexually exploitative images and goods.
