Thu May 23rd by abagond. National Geographic nudity , also known as tribal nudity , is where National Geographic shows the bare breasts and penises of brown-skinned people but not those of whites. It has been well-known for this since the s, though the practice goes back to Apart from pornography, it is rare for a mass-market American magazine to show the bare breasts or penis of anyone of any race. National Geographic is the main exception. It gets away with it in the name of science , of showing Americans the world as it truly is.

From National Geographic :. By Susan Goldberg , Editor in Chief. This story is part of The Race Issue, a special issue of National Geographic that explores how race defines, separates, and unites us.

Aerial photographs of an isolated tribe in the Brazilian rain forest are yielding a sensational new look at a Neolithic way of life that has all but disappeared from the face of the Earth. The high-resolution images, taken from a helicopter last week by Brazilian photographer Ricardo Stuckert , offer an unprecedented glimpse of a vibrant indigenous community living in complete isolation in the depths of the Amazon jungle. National Geographic obtained first-time rights from Stuckert to publish a selection.
So here's this highly acclaimed motion picture about a pre-industrial tribe and its customs. Perhaps the film details this tribe's interactions with white folks, or takes place entirely before they arrive. It just so happens that in the culture displayed, the women wear very little clothing or walk around topless. But there's a part of you that can't help thinking the entire film is nothing but an excuse to have lots of people running around with few or no clothes on.
