    I'm curious to hear from others if they grew up in a family atmosphere where nudity was an occasional part of everyday life or something that never occurred.
    Was sexuality discussed? Were parents or siblings seen naked?
    I grew up in a household where there was no nudity but it wasn't repressive or considered terrible- just didn't occur. Maybe it was due to growing up in the cold of New England!
    As I became older I knew that if I had a sexual question I could discuss it, but if I had walked around naked the rest of the family would have thought I was acting very strangely. I think I was too embarrassed, however, to ask specific questions- I remember receiving the facts of life from the self-styled neighborhood cool kid. It took me a few years to realize that half of his information was incorrect.
    Not a totally repressed atmosphere however- I remember being an adolescent and receiving a copy of Playboy for my birthday... Those pictures interested me, as did the first times I saw naked men- especially well hung guys- in the locker room. Guess that was a good early indication of being bi.

    Nudity was never an issue in my family from either of my parents. I was a big giant prude as a child and always kept myself completely clothed. Apparently my younger brother is very open with nudity as well. Mom claims he's 8" soft, but she's a drama queen lol. Thankfully I've never had to see his... I don't know if I could handle that haha!

    Sex and sexuality is also something that was never shyed away from in my family either. Mom made me come out to her when I was 19 by saying she knew I was gay since I was a toddler lol. She's pretty awesome but she's starting to give me a little too much info on her sex life as I get older LOL. But I'd so rather have parents who are "too" open and comfortable versus ones who are the opposite.

    Some of you have read this type of message from me before, so feel free to skip it! As I have mentioned before, I credit my Dad with my mental, physical and spiritual well being (such as it is) as an adult. He was warm, involved in mine and my brothers lives, and discussed sex, my development and changes in my body growing up. He was certainly never shy, came to the kitchen nude every morning for coffee, we showered together when I was young or even into young adulthood if we were all running late in the morning or at the gym, taught me to shave standing nude together in the shower, explained cleanliness, jockstraps, locker room etiquette and what I thought at the time, (especially Jr. High) were my freakishly big balls. It was certainly never sexual...he just taught me the skills for being a man, becoming self assured and comfortable with my self. He was a good man. :)

    The basic rule in my family was that we could be nude around other males or talk with other males about sex with no problem

    Most people know how close and open me and my mom are, this includes being nude around the house. It's no big deal to walk around nude and strip as soon as we get home.

    This is exactly the way I have brought up my son. He is 18 now and as my father never gave support on this issue I decided to do it better with my kids. We still are very free with nudity in our house. My wife and daughter too. Nudity is part of life why making it something you must hide? Sexual issues can be discussed as open as possible.

    Nudity around other males in my family was never an issue. I shared a bedroom with my two older brothers, and we slept in the mood. We saw each other's morning wood on a regular basis. I have five brothers in total; all of us have seen each other nude. Actually, all of us have seen each other nude and erect. I have seen my dad nude (not erect; that would creep me out a bit). About talk of sexuality: that was an awkward talk with my father. He was trying hard to do the right thing by having the father/son sex talk with me, but he was clearly not comfortable with that duty. He blushed and stammered, but he got through it. He did deliver the condom speech. He said that if I ever had a question about finding condoms that fit correctly, that I could come to him for advice. However, I could imagine a small voice in his head saying, "I hope he won't come to me with that problem!" So it wasn't the easiest thing to go through, but I admire my dad for tackling something he felt to be so important regardless of how uncomfortable he felt about it. I actually received more useful sexual advice from my older brothers, and I can still discuss sexual matters with them without embarassment.

    My Dad was and is a lot like KinkGuy's Dad and I feel blessed to have him. Anyway, he also had a very casual way with nudity. He rarely walked around the house naked but was always in his signature white boxers. I'll always remember my Mom telling him to put on pants in a half serious/half joking tone.

    My bro and I often showered with him at the boys' club, in the outdoor shower at our vacation place, camping etc. We were also able to talk to him, together and 1on1 about our bodies and sex and sexuality.

    I suppose it comes down to what you're used to. We were raised this way and so it was simply natural. Growing up I was surprised to learn that many families were rather conservative and private about their bodies.

    I'm following my Dad's model in raising my own family (3 kids).

    No one told me anything at home. All I know I learned from friends or from the very basic 'sex ed' at school. She (the sex ed teacher) just said pull your foreskin back. When I was 15 there was talk of STD/STI's and that was it. No nudity at home either, this is England hehe.

    Oh but my mum knows I masturbate and is okay with it. Her ex bf used to give me lots of porno mags too, which I then shared with my friends.

    Nudity didn't occur in our family at all and was never discussed.

    I grew up with two older sisters. The girls are 13 months apart in age with the youngest being 8 years older than me. Therefore, when I reached puberty both sisters were off to college. My dad took an extra interest with me being his only son. He would always allow me to see him naked when it was just the two of us. I entered puberty at an early stage; therefore, I had more hair in more places than my classmates. My father and I spent many weekends alone at our lake house while my mother worked weekends as a nurse at the local hospital. On these weekends we were always shirtless, usually clad in shorts and shoes only. We would shower and shave at the same time and both sleep naked. We also worked out at the local Y several nights a week and would always shower together there. As my penis grew and more body hair developed my father would always take notice and explain the changes that were occurring with my body. He would always tell me to look at his body because mine would most likely develop very similar to his. I did indeed obtain his large penis and body hair pattern; however, I have always wished that I maintained a foreskin like he continues to display.

    I think that this is natural and normal. I was lucky enough to have a very similar experience with one of my dad's friends at a swimming hole in the Black Hills. I can't tell you how much i learned about male sexuality from him. There was no sexual contact and neither one of us was looking for that. Wish every young guy had the chance to experience this.

    All the family still wear only underwear when home even at the winter season.
    My neighbours even seems to be shocked when the knock on the door and I open the door only wearing some boxer briefs :)

    Casual nudity among males in my family has always been common. Much like a lot of the other guys on here it's nothing more than dudes hanging out naked. Definitely made growing up easier. It's a great way to bond.
