The other day someone made a "what are some good non-fetish ideas for a world where everyone wears a fully-covering suit" type thread.

What about the reverse? Some good reasons for a world where everyone wears little to no clothing? Armor would still exist when appropriate but in daily life people would go around scantily clad.

You and me both brother.

If you modify biology there's a lot of ways you could go about doing it.

On a culture basis you could expand the cultural pressure against hiding your face. In most societies people will be uncomfortable if you hide your face with a mask or helmet for no reason, this could extend to almost all clothing in your setting. Wearing clothing would be indicative of being highly uncomfortable with someone, attempting to conceal your identity, etc.

Cultural. Prevalence of hidden weapons and assorted backstabbing dickery in distant, tumultous past made people distrustful of anyone in clothing that could mask something dangerous.

Over time, the custom of showing one's body to send a message of friendly intent - similar to real-world handshake - evolved into not wearing much at all unless needed. Going fully dressed without a reason is considered rude, offensive, and vaguely threatening though most people are not aware of the tradition's roots.

On the world of Klar'aan (or Fuck-Ass Hot, as it is known by the human colonists) the natives wear very little, just enough to cover their modesty, due to the near constant tropical warmth. It rarely rains on Klar, but the air hangs heavy with moisture at all times. The aggressive jungle plant forms greedily soak up any and all water they can, the humans and the natives are in a constant battle with the Great Sprawl (the native's name for the worlds spanning jungle)just to stay hydrated. It has been 50 years since the human colony ship crash landed on Klar, and they came into contact with the Kin, the native inhabitants. Resembling humans in most ways, the Kin have deep green skin, and enlarged tusk like teeth in the bottom jaws ( read: orcs ), with a very strength oriented tribal culture. The burliest and strongest members are respected, and those clever enough to live long enough to become big and strong most often merit the respect. Men and women alike are judged by the strength of their arm.

>> No.25040519

They could have tougher skin (harder to damage, less need for everyday protective wear), and be resilient to the elements. People normally wear clothing for 3 reasons: protections from the elements (cold for example), protection from everyday accidents(I spill coffee on my jacket instead of burning my skin), and to preserve their modesty(oh teh noes them chicks gonna see muh dick).

Also consider that according to christians(i have no clue if you or your group are), modesty was not a thing until adam ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Ancient Caveman Times.

Primitive people often didn't have an acquired sense of indecency, "had" thicker skin, and usually didn't 'need' clothes unless it esd cold as tits.

>> No.25041430

You need a few things.

First of all, the environment has to be tolerable without clothes. This can mean warm or hot for humans, though if you throw aliens or magic into it you could go past that.

Second, you need a reason. I'd imagine a cultural reason is best. Maybe it's a religious thing to go around in your underwear or naked? Perhaps sunlight provides a direct benefit on bare skin, like enhanced energy or a euphoric feeling?

Third, the near nudity or nudity needs to be accepted and played as the norm. You'll want to rejigger various cultural expectations to accommodate this.

The problem with making little clothing into a "logical" setting is that you have to justify why wearing little clothing is the social norm instead of...well, instead of just being naked all the time.

If you look at tribal cultures in our own history, most of the tribes out there today wear little to no clothing at all. It's too damn hot and there's no reason to waste time and resources making them. You may as well just go all the way and completely nudify your people.

From where I'm sitting that's your biggest hurdle:

Magic in the setting works through a field of aether particles which are interspersed in the atmosphere. Mages are people born with specialized cellular mechanisms which can capture the particles and convert them to mana for spells. However, this means that for maximum mana regeneration, you need to have as much skin exposed to open air as possible, so mages generally avoid clothing and armor. Mages live in windy areas for the same reason.

Or if you don't like the shitty magical mitochondria explanation just say that magic is tied to the soul and thus you have to actually expose your body to the air.

Just look at the places where it happens/happened in real life. The African savannah, Polynesian islands, some Native American tribes.
What they had in common is that they weren't really in situations where clothing would benefit them; they all have dark skin, so they're less likely to burn/develop skin cancer (or if you're going back a couple centuries, had lifespans so short it didn't matter if they did).
Materials for making cloth was fairly rare and they didn't have the industry to produce it in large quantities.

The sun is farther away on this planet, so Vitamin D deficiency is more common and the body has adapted to make it pleasurable to have sun on your bare skin. People cover the important shit for religious reasons (they are for boning after all), and if someone is wearing clothes in the middle of the day, something's off with them, with combat armor and athletic/work clothes being the exception.

>> No.25045228

Thanks. Another cultural reason I came up with relates to the arabic (I'm probably butchering the cultural context here sorry) and western traditions wherein a woman or male only shows themselves sexually to their closest partners.

You could flip this around saying an individual will only clothe themselves sexually in the presence of individuals they consider below themselves or their great enemies. It would be like saying, "I'm wearing clothes because there is no way I could ever consider being sexually involved with someone as low or despicable as you. Or in general I do not respect you." To do so otherwise is a great insult to an individual and etc.

Yep culture is illogical in the first place so you can chalk almost anything up to culture and make it work. I find if you tie it in somehow to contemporary culture at the same time it can be satisfying.

Shit, I just realized that this would also require a large Greenhouse effect to avoid freezing everybody.

The planet is co-habitated by mind controlling, air borne bacteria that is visibly obvious. Starts out as a mild rash on the external skin where the bacteria feeds on hair follicles and dead skin. Eventually the rash begins to harden and expand as the bacterial colony feeds, then "grows" into the body via the holes left in the skin where hair used to grow. Once this barrier is breached mind control rapidly accelerates as the colony releases spores into the bloodstream that take the body/brain over to establish control and secure a permanent nutrient supply. Eventually the "person" is gone, replaced with a bacterial hive-mind who's intelligence grows with each bacterial cell added to the colony. This hive intelligence "feeds" on the memories of the victim, eventually assuming their personality. The end result is a completely autonomous walking bacteria hive mind organism capable of perfectly mimicking the original host, able to recall all memories, and interact with other humans in order to spread more bacteria via either physical touch or exhaling spores.

These colonies develop their own personalities and wildly vary in intelligence, with some seeking peaceful interaction with humans yet others wishing only to consume/destroy. Once the bacteria breaks the skin and gets into the blood, there is a 98% fatality rate of the victim with the other 2% survivors being effectively lobotomized in mental capability.

The only way to control the spread is to be mostly naked so that you or someone else in public can spot the rash developing before it's too late. It's easily treatable with a topical ointment serum in the early stages.

As a result, people wearing clothing are social outcasts, stigmatized, and even barred from entering government facilities. In major population centers most cities have local ordinances or laws that include issuing fines or even imprisonment for covering up as it is seen as a serious danger to public health.

>> No.25112076

since the bacteria is native and endemic to the planet, and contains a rudimentary intelligence even before coming into contact with a host, it's too expensive to maintain planetwide filtration of every home, office, vehicle, hair brush and bar stool. The treatment serum is extremely cheap and readily available (through government mandate) in even the most remote part of the world, with some enterprising entrepreneurs including it in common items like shampoo and sunscreen just to be safe (and only for a modest markup, really).

There are also massive social debates raging around what to do with fully consumed "hosts" as these are technically fully intelligent sentient beings once the colony enters it's final stage. Some prominent humans argue that they deserve life since they cannot be faulted for a nature they didn't have the luxury to choose. There are "leper colony" style towns in remote places where the hosts gather to live since they are (for the time being) barred upon pain of death from entering human settlements.

There, everyone runs around in bikini's rubbing serum oil on each other to work on their tans in this sub-tropical paradise world with a terrifying secret.

The greeks come to mind: the olympics were traditionally done naked, as the games were part of a celebration of the human body.

They could simply not see any reason to cover anything up, as everything there is natural

They could value the abilities of an unprotected body: we didn't always wear clothes, or need to purify water to drink it, or cook meat to eat it, and we were a lot more hardcore back then. This society uses some tech to cover for things we simply can't do (ie they'd have hammers, as the forehead is really inefficient at pounding in nails), but they wouldn't have many luxury-based tech (yes on regular saws, no on chainsaws, boats for REALLY long distance only, etc). In fact, wearing clothing or armor or using weapons is a sign of weakness, as if announcing that your body is incapable

The best one I've come across is in Kingdom Death: Monster, which is "The world in now in Post-Apoc stage, material for everything is short, including clothes, therefore everybody wears very little. The only way to make clothes is to hunt monsters and turn their bits into armour"

I think that is pretty awesome. While all the girls are in micro-underwear cause cloth and stuff doesn't exist, they have to hunt monsters or buy the stuff to get proper clothes. So armour and shit gets respect. Also, I think Kingdom Death allows you to equip your models with armour pieces via clip-on plastic sets. I was tempted to get the cheesecake models, but I can't paint or anything, so I just got stuff which I could re-sell or keep for later use. Shame really, cheesecake models were good.

So, yeah, there you go, world has been destroyed, limited material for clothes, men wear loincloths and women wear micro-bikini's (or nothing at all depending on your particular wishes). You could then make clothing, including underwear, a status symbol. People who are fully naked are bottom of society and fill messy jobs and sex/entertainment jobs. Wearing underwear gets you into servants and stall sellers. Basic top + legs gets you into higher stuff, perhaps owning naked people. Then you get luxury clothes, for the powerful and stuff. So, leaders. Then armour is for soldiers, hunters, monster slayers, so gain massive respect and are well liked and well connected. They sell their material they get from monsters to stall owners who then give it to naked people to cut up and sort out (monster stuff remember!) which is then given to the stall seller. This is then sold to blacksmiths/tailors (basic cloths as opposed to underwear like the stall sellers) who then sell it to other store owners and so on, ending up with hunters or the leaders. Could make players learn bartering or blacksmithing to make gear and do a random roll on what you get +skill level.

So yeah. Have some pretty picture.

So easy that people figured out spells how to keep their body temperature stable and give themselves a bit more AC before they made clothes.
