But for witches, ritual nudity isn’t about sex—it’s about freedom. The 1899 book Aradia, or The Gospel of the Witches, an influential text in the twentieth-century witchcraft movement, explains it this way: “And as the sign that ye are truly free, Ye shall be naked in your rites, both men and women also.” The practice of naked rites—or “going skyclad”—was later embraced by Gerald Gardner, one of the founders of Wicca.

Modern witches practice ritual nudity to get as close as possible to the earth and spirits. It’s also a way to signify faith: “For skyclad covens, ‘skin is the livery of the Goddess;’ it is their Sunday or Sabbath best,” according to A Witches’ Bible. Also, like showing up to church or synogogue (no matter what you’re wearing), naked group dancing is about community. Praying from home is fine, but putting on (or taking off) a nice dress and meeting up with your peers gives your spiritual practice extra resonance.
