Jacque Fresco once mentioned ( that he find naked people in Tuomoto when he was living in South Pacific for 1 year. But that was in the 50's, so a lot has probably changed.

He said that they don't have any clothes ad were naked and that they do look into the eyes when they speak with each other and not on the breasts or ass etc.

I don't agree with him on this subject 100%, because even male macaques were excited if they were shown bums of female macaques in heat. But I agree that "scarcity" creates a lot of fetish behavior etc ;)

Anyway, my question is what are some islands where you can find native people who don't wear any clothes at all.

have you seen naked people wearing clothes? More seriously, your request sounds condescending and more like sexual tourism. – Vince Sep 11 '13 at 21:46
If someone wanted to visit a place where most women wore burqas, would that be seen as "sexual tourism"? – Andrew Grimm Sep 12 '13 at 22:12
Ah so now I see, they must be naked, and they must be wearing no clothes, but it's fine if they're wearing accessories such as belts, jewelery, and penis protectors? – hippietrail Sep 13 '13 at 7:09
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about anthropology rather than travel. – hippietrail Sep 13 '13 at 7:10
I agree with the anthropology categorisation, and even if we would accept the anthropologic travel, this is a travel site, not a forum to debate animal sexual attraction. The question could be looking for a non-naturist nudist island, period. – Vince Sep 13 '13 at 7:50

I think the issue here is that anything that is easy to visit is less likely to have indigenous tribes or populations of any size that would not have started to wear clothes. Exceptions are the spring break populations in the USA etc.

So in order to answer your question, I would suggest you to take a look at a list that has all the most likely candidates, namely the un-contacted peoples of the world. What kind of clothes they wear is of course sometimes hard to say because, well they have not been contacted. But the chances that they wear Adidas sweatpants at least is very low.

give me cargo ( (and yes, even the extreme case of crashing aircraft or ships leading to a cargo cult could be considered contact I know). – jwenting Dec 17 '13 at 7:29
