    i grew up with some really open minded 70ies parents who lived a nude life at home and so i was expected to follow their example. certainly i struggled with this around my puberty but overall i fully agree with this lifestyle.

    now i wonder, why are some people totally opposing against nudity. why is (non-sexual) nudity in public such a big topic - how can a human being excite him-/herself about having seen someone naked somewhere? what is this prudery all about (while there are countries where nudity by default is not a criminal act at all)?

    I'm confused.

    You think people who don't want to see strangers genitals in public are "prudes"?

    Whaaa?

    Not so narrow, those were some examples only. Prudes are imho against nude beaches, against nude running, against showing breasts in a strip club etc.. just to name a few.

    I’ll preface this with I am personally modest by inclination and culture.

    My issue is A) sexualized nudity in public (your strip club example),
    B) exhibitionists involving the public in their kink/fetish. Consent is a thing.
    C) people who think because they are comfortable nude in public, everyone should be just like them.

    People have different values for different reasons. The key thing is to behave in a way that is respectful of others, so that no one is left feeling threatened, demeaned or discounted.

    The way you phrase things matters. You're original post comes off like you think it shouldn't be a big deal to flash your junk to strangers on the subway or something.

    I don't go to nude only places or strip clubs but that doesn't mean I'm "against" them.

    In fact, I don't think I've ever heard someone say those types of places should be banned.

    When San Francisco banned civic nudity a couple years ago, they left the beaches alone.
    But, Bay to Breakers required some clothing and Folsom Street Fair had to change a (tiny) bit.
    Three of those were not overtly sexual.

    I’m no prude, but I get it. Some people are funny, smart, free-spirited, emotional, rude, boring, charming, dry, stupid, sweet, shy and so on... people have different personalities, prudishness is a characteristic that some have.

    Agreed, wording is key and i had something in mind when i wrote the post:

    I was day dreaming about running nude in the woods haha... in some countries that is fine - in others you get a fine. Let alone what happens if you meet someone...

    The part about the strip clubs was an example. Some US clubs require strippers by the local law to wear something - even if it's transparent. There might be some prudish culture behind this i guess...

    There is a difference between being prude and being modest. I am neither. When growing up there was me, my dad, 2 other brothers and my mom who was outnumbered. The men in the house would walk around in our underwear all the time and thought nothing of it. To this day when at home I am only wearing underwear and if a buddy comes over I don't put on anything else. I am not modest. My friends don't care and don't shorten their visit or leave. They are not prudes. They also are modest because they do not take off their pants and sit around in underwear with me. Not everything that is out of the usual has to be associated with sexual conduct.

    welcome to life and values. we're all too different to put a label on everyone who is otherwise as "prude".

    the definition of prude is: one who is excessively concerned with being or appearing to be proper, modest, or righteous.

    by that definition alone, we've all been prude at some point in our lives at least once or twice.

    I am certainly not a prude, but I would not care to see nudity in public.

    If you give me the choice of seeing a very handsome and physically perfect gentleman wearing either nothing at all or an exquisitely tailored suit I believe that most women would choose the guy with threads.

    Prudery as you call it is a result of social mores which are burnt into us from childhood. You grew up in a clothing optional household so you're okay with it. Had your entire society been that way we'd think it strange that you even posed the question here.

    We humans are the product of our programming. Call it socialization or indoctrination. I call it brainwashing.

    There's plenty of prudery on display already in this thread by those who are disgusted or even traumatized by the sight of male genitalia.

    Instead of being open, relaxed and accepting of our bodies we are so repressed that we frequent porn sites like this one to sample and celebrate the male member in secret because we cannot in public. Calvinism is alive and well.

    Exquisitely tailored suits lead to distinctly non-prudish nudity.

    That reminds me I need to get a couple new shirts tailored.

    How about stop expecting every guy to show you his cock. Mind your own business. And stop making people who arent exhibitionists feel bad. Every thread of yours is guaranteed to be annoying. You are a "one note" and boring.

    You and Wally are all too similar.

    If someone wants to be what you call prude. So be it. I'll support them. If you like being nude. So be it. I'll support that too.

    And has it even dawned in you that someone might naturally be bashful. Or maybe insecure about their body? Or even have a history of sexual abuse that makes them not want to be out there where the world can stare at their private parts. No one owes you their naked body.

    I am definitely not prudish regarding nudity in appropriate situations. I've long used gyms with open showers, so other men seeing my penis is completely routine and normal to me

    A huge percentage of the laws of America, were based on early religious beliefs. Some have been forgotten, some are ignored, some were abolished ; and replaced by newer laws. This includes regulation about nudity.. Personally I appreciate most of the laws that govern modesty, But applying the postingto LPSG. just because I do not want to show you my junk, does not, make me a prude. Just because I do not want to see your junk, does not make me a prude..

    There are proper times and places for all things. Trust me you do not want to see the entire world nude
