I spent most of the weekend with Tommy (my fella) helping him paint two murals. We spent most of our time doing this inside, apart from y'day because the weather was just too darn glorious to not go out into the garden. I spend alot of time nude. When we were inside painting I took my clothes off because my preferance is to go about unclad.

I do wear clothes, they're great for warmth, decoration and protection (frying is not advised to be done sans clothing, actually most cooking should be done with something worn to cover your delicate parts). I quite like wearing clothes; puting together combinations. It can be quite fun being ones own barbie doll.

When Tommy saw me getting undressed I asked him if it bothered him because see I'd thought he wouldn't be fussed, being as he's seen me naked before. Tommy told me that it wasn't so much that it bothered him, just that he himself would find it really uncomfortable to paint in the buff, even in the privacy of his own home, but that if I wanted to it was fine.

I have grown up seeing my parents and siblings nude. In my house there is only one bathroom which has the one toilet there too. Five people getting ready to leave at roughly the same time in the morning leads to people walking in and out of the bathroom regardless of who else is in there at the time, or their state of undress.

Tommy and I were in his room painting, when his flatmate, Ollie, knocked on the door. I moved along the bed from where I was, so that Ollie wouldn't see me when Tommy opened the door. Tommy and Ollie have a brief conversation about housemate stuff and when they are done and after when Tommy closes his door he turns to me and says "That's why you should wear clothes.". I tell him "That's why people shouldn't wear clothes."

Tommy then pointed out that I had moved out of Ollie's view when he was speaking to him. I explained that it's a case that I know other people (not all) get uncomfortable by seeing people without clothes outside of doing the jiggy jiggy dance. I don't mind if Ollie sees me au naturel, but from the little I know Ollie, and the fact I have't seen him walking around without a stich leads me to assume he would feel akward. At the end of the day I don't want to make him feel that way.

Do you walk around in the buff? Could you infront of family, friends, strangers? Are the only times for nakedness in the shower and in bed? Do you only feel free to be naked when you are by yourself?

I'm curious to know what people's thoughts are because I know not all of y'all get naked on a regular. I feel very comfortable with my body (it's not always been that way), and I have a feeling that having few inhibitions, if none about being nude is connected with how comfortable a person is with thier body. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I would be uncomfortable with most people seeing me nude. However, when I'm alone, I do prefer to be unclothed, I simply feel that it is more comfortable.

There seems to be an episode of Seinfeld that fit this. Bad naked and everything.

Anyway, I'm not particularly fond of my body (I'm very large) so when I'm naked with someone, I tend to think of it as a bigger commitment than having sex. Kinda pathetic, huh?

Doesn't mean I don't like being naked, though.

I see nothing wrong with walking around naked but other people find the idea of it uncomfortable. People have told me I was perverted because I mentioned that I went to a nudist beach on holiday, but I'd say you're only perverted if you only go there to get off on all the naked people. So yeah, I've no problem with walking around naked but I don't want to embarass people who may have a problem with it. Sometimes it's convenient not to wear any clothes, and if we didn't wear them at all we'd probably be more aware of different body types and have broader aesthetic ideals regarding them because we'd be exposed to them more regulaly. We'd also become desensitised to them which I think would be good to a certain extent.

Perversion is annoying, especially for a man.

If I looked over my garden fence and I saw a woman sunbathing nude outside then she could call me a pervert for looking. If I was naked and she saw it would be indecent exposure.

hmm, I'd have to say that I'm rather comfortable being topless/just in a bra (as my breasts are large enough to need one most of the time) but not bottomless.

I tend to thing of being naked with someone as something special, actually- that only the privileged few (or none, as the case would be now) get to see.

I like being nekked. I'd like to walk around bare arsed more often then I do but I have an unfortunate habit of not closing curtains properly - the neighbours don't appreciate that. laugh.gif

I'm not terribly comfortable with my body (although it's probably in better shape now then it ever has been since I was about 19) but I think a get more comfortable the older I get. I suppose you just get used to the shape you are and how it looks and forgive the bits that let you down.

I moon people a lot. Not sure if that's relevant? rolleyes.gif

I'm rarely entirely naked, because I'm literally not comfortable with it - as in, chairs and sofas aren't as comfortable against bare flesh. Plus it's just more convenient being clothed - people have an annoying habit of ringing the doorbell...

Espescially on leather! Sticks to you something fierce.

And to snuggs, I need to learn you on definitions of words:

naked - adj; to be without clothes
nekkid - adj; to be witout clothes and to be up to something

I'm use to my parents walking around with barely anything on so people being naked doesnt really bother me much. Though I really dont like walking around naked myself because I have a feeling my family would totally disapprove.

There was an instance where I was wearing a shirt that, when worn in barely no light, looks like I'm wearing only a bra. My brother saw that and immediatley said "Put some cloths on, jeez!" So I dont think he'd be entirely comfortable with me wandering around in anything less than a pair of shorts and a shirt.

Mostly its just a people thing. Sometimes I feel extreamly comfy in my skin and when the house is to myself I walk around naked for a while. Its nice feeling free sometimes! Sometimes though. Other than that, I feel that if I were to be nekked with someone around it would be at the least a snuggly sort of intimate situation, though not necissarially with sex involved.

when I am alone I dont care if I am naked or not, once I am dressed I wont strip off but I if I have just got out of the bath or something I usuly stay naked for an hour or so.
I am a bit chubby and am not realy comfortable with my body (but I tell people I am) so I dont feel comfortable naked in front of other people Infact the only time I strip down more than trousers and t shirt is to go swimming. Even if I am at a beach I always wear t shirt and trousers.

I like walking around the house naked, but I check to make sure its dark enough in my house, theres no one in and there aren't any curtains open. I generally don't like the idea of even small nudity infront of people, shirtless for example.

But if people want to be naked thats funky. A good friend of mine has a great dad, first time I met him he was naked in the kitchen frying eggs in just an apron and he's known for ironing his boxers to wear just before he goes out so they're nice and warm.

I don't think there is anything wrong with being naked when one is by themselves. I don't like being naked because I don't find it comfortable. Probably at least partly because I'm not comfortable with my body, but I think it's also that I just prefer wearing clothes.

I'm gonna be grouped with the people that don't mind nakedness but prefer clothing. Like Sean said, some materials aren't comfortable against bare skin. I'm also not fond of my body, it's ok, but I just don't like being so skinny. Finally, without clothes I feel...well, naked, vulnerable would be a better word, I like the feeling of wearing clothes, it's comforting, for example, my favourtive pair of boxers are those snug, tight fitting ones, supportive like. tongue.gif

I'm as happy with or without clothes. When the weather's hot, without is so much more pleasant. And as long as the people I'm around are happy with me being naked, I'm happy.

But it's oddly double-sided. Outside of home, or 'naked events', I'm quite self conscious about taking my clothes off (due to a little beer belly, and hair in places it doesn't belong. However, in the company of other naked folks, I'm perfectly comfortable to strip off. The same way being naked in Sainsbury's is very different from being naked at a nudist beach.

Am fine being "in the buff" but am oddly disturbed when your friends and family start doing it too- for example - on a beach (somewhere nice and hot preferably, not South End) if your happily soaking up the sun, I can't help but stare at other people - and it frightens me slightly! I'm in no way inclined to the female form, I am very much a sausage girl, but you just HAVE to stare! It's a natural bloody thing! And just when they turn because they can feel someone looking, its the very same moment you try to force your gaze to the floor -

*think hmmmm....... I've never really looked at sand in this way - it's so pretty*

And then they think you're a dirty old perv!

Clothes are just so USEFUL though. Lots of pockets to keep stuff in. And it also gives you something to do with your hands.... well besides absent-mindedly scratching your bits. biggrin.gif

I'm not exactly over the moon with how my body looks, that and it's often more comfy to have clothes on. That and I think you lose some of the mystique if you go around in the buff all the time. It's not so... I dunno, special.


Saying that, once or twice I've gotten naked when drunk. Don't ask me why, scares the crap outa me too. I just pray no one has a camera at the time. Or that it's cold. *whistles*

So no, wouldn't make the world a better place. At least when I am involved with it. But you can apply that to everything I'm involved with I guess.

I've heard about this too, and in some way I think it's good - they seem to be comfortable enough with their bodies and nudity/partial nudity to do that. I think that nakedness is generally something that society is too uptight about, and in turn, more people are uptight about it as well. I'd probably have trouble in that situation, too, but it would be nice if people could be more comfrotable with their bodies/nudity.

It's taken me somewhere in the realms of about six years to be comfortable hugging people I'm not romantically involved with or related to. My personal space extends about 10ft from my body. No hugs! tongue.gif

In terms of being naked... I dunno. I don't mind walking around in my underwear, or just a dressing gown with nothing underneath, or even just a towel. even just a towel around my waist. Full nudity, I'm not comfortable with though. Partially because I actually do get comments made about my body from my family, not in a nasty sense, or at least, not intended that way. We have one bathroom, but the only person who actually walks around the house naked is my mum. Me, my sister, and my stepdad are forbidden to, for obvious reasons. If me or my sister are in there, we tend to leave each other alone, but mum picks the lock and goes in.

The other reason I don't like it is that I've always been taught it was wrong. anything less than either full clothing or underwear, pyjamas and dressing gown is wrong. My parents have a lot of middle aged rpg-playing bachelors who are often around here, so it was just common sense to teach me and my sister not to walk around naked, and it stuck. On the other hand, I'm totally happy to sleep naked with no covers, so maybe I'm just irrational about this tongue.gif

And, of course, there's a salamander somewhere in my ancestry so I'm never warm enough. And yeah, some things just do feel uncomfortable against bare skin.
