History of Tanning

In ancient history, tanning was considered a noxious commerce and relegated to the outskirts of town, amongst the poor. The ancients used leather for water skins, bags, harnesses, boats, armor, quivers, scabbards, boots, and sandals. Around 2500 BC, the Sumerians started using leather, affixed by copper studs, on chariot wheels. Tanners would take an animal skin and soak it in water. Subsequently they’d thump and scour the skin to remove flesh and fat. Next, either they soaked the skin in urine to loosen hair fibers or they let the skin putrefy for several months, after which they dipped the skin in a salt solution. After the hair fibers were loosened, the tanners would scrape them off with a knife. Once the hair was removed, tanners would bate the substance by pounding dung into the skin or soaking the skin in a solution of animal brains. They would also take cedar oil, alum, or tannin and stretch the skin as it lost wetness and consumed the tanning agent. Left Over leather would be turned into paste. Tanners would place bits of hides in a vat of water and allow them to deteriorate for months. The mixture would then be put over a fire to boil off read to create hide paste.

My Personal Narrative

I wasn’t produced into a nudist family and therefore I was taught that one must not go around without their clothes on. Being bare in front of others was satisfactory only in particular situations (Doctor’s office, locker rooms, school showers, or other places where changing clothes was acceptable) and just for the brief time it was mandatory. One simply didn’t walk around nude in mixed company.

As a child I went to a summer camp which was run by my Father and once a week we had “Scrub”.

Typically we wore out bathing suits when we swam in the lake, but on “Scrub Day” we took soap to the lake and left our suits in the cabins. As this is the only way we could actually wash, and because it was an all boys’ camp, the required nudity was okay. Because I CAn’t swim I did not enjoy going to the lake whatsoever. As far as I was concerned being being naked with the other boys was http://videonudism.com/suntan being at the lake was.
