Taboo sex

The deliberate and conscious wearing of clothing is a behavioural adaptation, which among all known extant and extinct animals is a uniquely human characteristic arising from functional needs such as protection from the elements.Protection from the elements includes the sun (for depigmented human populations) and cold temperatures after the loss of body hair and the migration of humans to colder regions (around 100,000 years ago) in which they had not evolved and thus lacked the necessary physical adaptations.Reliable information on the development of nudity and the passage of time are not yet possible because hair does not fossilize.Researchers at the University of Utah in 2004 found that human skin contains photoreceptors like those in the retina, allowing it to mount an immediate defence against damaging ultraviolet radiations.According to some researchers, wearing clothes may predate early human global migrations by an additional 70,000 years.In this case, the migrations were themselves facilitated by the innovation of clothing.

In a paper published in Journal of Anthropological Archaeology, Researchers Mark Collard, Lia Tarle, Dennis Sandgathe and Alexander Allan It of Simon Fraser University, in British Columbia Canada suggest that their work supports (but hardly proves) the hypothesis that Homo Neanderthalensis may have only known how to make cape-like coverings and that this lack of behavioral adaptation may have contributed to their eventual extinction during ancient climate changes when they may have succumbed to hypothermia, frostbite and other cold ailments.The closest living genetic relatives of humans, apes and especially chimpanzees, possess an almost complete covering of fur.Humans are today the only naked primate in nature, that is, most of the body is not naturally covered by fur.This would depend on their level of inhibition, cultural background and upbringing, as well as on context.A society's attitude to public nudity varies depending on the culture, time, location and context of an activity.
