    Shine: I was just wondering other peoples views on in which situation they feel comfortable being nude and which ones they don't.

    For example, if your partner (male or female whichever your preference) had a friend or friends round, would you be comfortable to walk nude from the bathroom knowing that you'll be seen? is nudity in this way an issue or not?

    If someone, family or friends came around and were chatting whilst you had to change (completely) to go somewhere would you have to be in a different room? or would you happily just carry on, even if you hardly new the person?

    Or have you ver been the one around when someone else gets nude. Did ya think.. my god this person is really confidant I admire that, or did ya think this is a bit odd.

    Discuss.

    wvalady1968: I'm very comfortable with nudity in front of my guy, or in situations with other women where it's appropriate: locker rooms, showers, et al. Stranger nudity in any other form makes me uncomfortable.

    :p

    As we had this topic before,

    I very comfortable being nude around the house, even when my partner or close friends are around. Walking around the house, having breakfast or even sitting in our (sheltered) garden gives my the feeling of total freedom. For me being nude in the comfort of my house or quiet beach, park or garden is a distinguish of the busy hectic business life I have. Like changing afterwork from a business suite into a comfortable tracksuit or more less clothing. For my it's about being myself, a way of life in harmony with nature characterised by the practice of (communal) nudity, with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment. To relax and be nude is to let yourself be totally free. It something pure. Personally I think you mix Naturism with Exhibitionism as Exhibitionism fall under the general category of paraphilias and exposing one's genitals or sexual organs to a strangers. I don't have this feeling when my grandmother is visiting me. So if there will be guests, family or (not very close) friends around the house I will not walk around in the nude. Not out of shame but out of politness.

    It's all about respect....respect for others and respect for yourself.

    I'm comfortable with nudity, even with erections. OTOH, if a guy starts publicly masturbating, I'm not all that comfortable with that.

    I spend more time at home nude than clothed. I am freely nude in front of certain members of both our families (men) and have a large group of friends who have just learned to expect to find me naked. They too are comfortable in our home and often come to hot tub, swim and hang out in the private back yard and why bother putting on clothes after we've all been nude together swimming or tubing? The group of friends who visit our place include gay men, lesbians, straight couples and singles...and everyone in between. But, I also will not be nude in front of my Mom and other people who aren't "part of the club." There is such a thing as correct time and place. Heading to Southern Decadence labor day weekend...and not planning on taking a lot of clothes. See, "time and place."

    I am a naturalist.. I would like to be nude 24/7. Nudity is not "sexual" unless it is a sexual situation.

    Since some of my friends are nudists it's different for me. We have no problem being nude around each other here, their house/apt or at a nude beach. Nude is not naked. Naked is associated with sex as far as I'm concerned. Erections are a normal function of my body. Appropriate time or not. Because I am on the above average side 9+ x 6 1/2+ it's sometimes embarassing infront of friends because I know they're going to kid me. My size isn't the issue but what other people automatically think is. You can tell by how they look at you. One time last summer I was at a local nude beach and for some reason I was getting hard erect every 20 or so minutes. I wasn't feeling extra horny or turned on, I was just real sensitive. Anyone here too? Anyway I got a mixtures of smiles and looks that could kill from both genders. I tried staying near the water but that wasn't helping so I just walked around. Made some friends both male and female. You can tell a nudist from a naked guy or gal. The nudist will look you in the face for the most part. The naked guy/gal will stare at your package. If I do look at a guy or gal I usually follow up with a compliment. Well I'm getting off subject..Be Nude~Be Free!!! B)

    I'm basically comfortable with nudity around friends, neighbors or strangers but it depends on the context. I've been to nude hot springs resorts, nude public beaches, hot tub parties where clothing eventually came off, hot tub parties where clothing was known to be optional in advance as well as impromptu skinny dipping episodes during camping trips. Basically, I go with the flow. I'm not the first to remove my clothing but not the last, either.

    There were a number of times when I became erect at the nude hot springs and it was embarrasing because it did briefly draw some attention until I was able to discretely cover myself or move away. But it happened to other guys so I was not alone.

    nude...naked...unclothed...wearin' the birthday suit...
    whatever you are calling it....hmmmm.

    I am usually nude around the house, but not in front of company.
    As i've posted before, i did not grow up in a house
    where nudity was encouraged or thought appropriate.

    I have been nude in front of sexual parnters,
    and in locker rooms,
    and that is pretty much it.

    I have a strong curiosity about being nude in
    a public place where it would be appropriate,
    like a nude beach.
    I'm getting less embarrassed about this
    as i get older.

    Nah, I'm not confortable, while being in underwear is okay, strangers it's never.

    Anyway, you can't simply gaze upon the perfect being nude! You have to ask first!

    Hoenstly, I'm not comfortable yet in my own body. I grew up playing soccer and basketball, but I'm so lanky and shy that I am not comfy with my nudity around anyone other than a significant other. Even then, I shy away from being seen. Don't get me wrong, I believe that I'm handsome (certainly no Brad Pitt) but it's just who I am...don't think that'll ever change until I get right with my own body first.

    I, too, like to enjoy my time at home without clothes. I don't instantly peel off everything as soon as I hit the door, though. I usually stay naked for a while after I get out of the shower, or if it's hot and I don't feel like blasting the A/C, I'll strip down. I also sleep naked and usually stay naked for an hour or so as part of my "morning routine." (Oh yeah, and I usually masturbate then, too.)

    Nudity around people is a different story. It really depends on who they are, how we get along, and the comfort of the situation. I have been drunk with several of my friends and willingly participated in games of strip poker, Spin the Bottle, or Truth or Dare. I have hauled my dick out as a fair exchange to girl friends showing their tits. I've also jacked off with a couple of my guy friends. Many of my good friends have seen me naked or in various states of undress and it hasn't been a problem. I also work out at the gym, and should I decide to shower there, I don't care. At the same time, just because I've had some fun experiences like these, I don't instantly shed off my clothes; it's really a situation-specific sort of thing.

    For example, my friend and I met yesterday for lunch. He was going to stop by my apartment to pick me up, and I told him I'd leave the door unlocked so he could let himself in. I ended up greeting him with a towel around my waist. No big deal. My ex-girlfriend, with whom I'm rekindling some sort of friendship, has also seen me in just a towel. It's ok.

    And as a few members have hinted already, a lot of that comfort is being comfortable with oneself. I really think that hitting the gym and trying to get into shape has increased my comfort level with myself and others, and I'm sure the dick size is a good thing too.

    I don't make distinction between 'naked' and 'nude'. Sure, the connotation might be a bit different, the denotation is the same: 'unclad' is 'unclad', whatever word you use for it. I really don't have a problem with being in my birthday suit. I shared a room with two older brothers and we all slept starkers. I'm not particularly shy, and I've worked hard to get my body just how I want it to be, so I don't mind if people get a look at me in the altogether. Sorry if I sound full of myself, but I think I look good. But it's something more than that: I'm comfortable with myself. Even guys with a body that's not as they would like it to be can be comfortable with themselves, and they can enjoy the sensations of nudity as well. Lack of self-consciousness feels good. Nudity where it is appropriate is not a bad thing. I don't recommend going to Sunday Mass sans clothing, and the folks at Sears might not find it amusing if you walk in unclothed ... well, some might ... but around the house? Sure. In the locker room? Absolutely. At the beach? If it's a beach where that's acceptable, go for it. People who have never tried it might be surprised at how liberating simple nudity can be.

    I think you said a mouthful, DMW, I am more comfortable with nudity when I'm in good shape. At the moment, since I'm still "restructuring", I have some problem areas I'm not ready to show, but once these are done I will feel much better about being in the altogether. I have found it to be a very liberating feeling in the past and am glad to be at least approaching my goals. Congrats to you for caring enough about yourself to get your physique in the fine shape it's obviously in. You rock, dude!

    I have worked at my body for a long time so I am pretty comfortable with nudity to a point. I don't care changing at my gym for instance. I am ok with being nude and even erect in my own home, but there are places and times where showing anything from a littel skin to being buck naked isn't appropriate.

    the pain behind your eyes
    Nudity by and large is really an issue that never had any tacit concerns with me. Modesty might as well been tossed out the window. Hey, I try to go the route of the au naturel as much as is humanly possible, though in my neighborhood, you'd be amazed who hasn't attempted an eyeful. I remember one time a couple of Jehova's witnesses came knocking on my door when I was, to say the least entertaining a lady. Well, when I opened the door, they got the eyeful to fill all eyes! The one little pipsqueak just asked, "Good morning, sir, have we caught you at a bad time?" It was unreal! Stark naked to the world, dick fully erect with precum slathering the door saddle, and they asked me that! But, hell, I wasn't embarassed in the least, but they were shocked, and didn't even bother getting to the part about being ready for the end!

    I don't have much problem with nudity. I go to a nude beach maybe once a year, in my younger years i streaked [and it was not my dick that was covered], i shower at the gym, etc. However, sitting around naked with my roomates [a bro and a best friend] is something I cannot imagine.
