I have just been asked if witchcraft should be performed naked.
( I love that idea of "performed" as though we are some sort of entertainer!).
So, here we go again with the old "Skyclad" idea.
Throughout the centuries, witches have been portrayed as "dancing naked". A typical Christian concept because nakedness was "wicked" and "evil".Many witches did work while naked. Many still do so.Gardner believed that Nudism was good for the health; sun and air to the whole body.
So, should witches "perform" naked? Well, it's a matter of personal choice. But let's have some common sense, so as not to "frighten the horses".
Wearing clothing is not natural. We are the only animal on Earth that wears clothing!
So, I would say that if you wish to be naked in your own home, or anywhere out of the public gaze, there is no reason why not!
After all, we are all born naked!
But is nakedness necessary for witchcraft? No! It isn't!
