  • The words are not interchangeable.

    "The artist paints nudes" not the "artist paints nakeds"

    "I saw him in the nude" not "I saw him in the naked"

    And that's the naked truth and not the nude truth.

    Naked is more vulnerable while nude is consenting. You go to a nudist beach not a nakist beach. You say "I felt naked and ashamed" not "nude and ashamed"

    • Actually, when used as an adjective, they are interchangeable. According to the Oxford Languages dictionary, the definition of nude is "wearing no clothes; naked." So you can refer to a painting of a naked model or of a nude model.

    • The dictionary is wrong.

  • You asked for a preference, and idiots told you that the two words are interchangeable. LOL You already knew that, but that wasn't your question.

    "Would you rather have pizza or hamburgers?"

    Idiot: Both lol

    Naked.

  • I like "naked" better.

    "I am in the nude at home" vs " I am naked at home".

    "Nude friends" vs "Naked friends ".

    "Gardening in the nude today" vs "Gardening naked today".

    "Nude at the beach " vs "Naked at the beach".

    "Naked" just sounds better.

  • For some reason, saying or spelling the word naked turns me on more.

  • Either one is just fine and gets the point across,

  • I say naked.

  • Nude is softer sounding, while the k in naked makes it sound rougher, harsher. So generally I find nude to be preferred. However, if speaking of rundown areas, naked can convey the idea better. "There are eight million stories in the naked city; this has been one of them" was a tag from the police procedural show "The Naked City".

  • Doesn’t matter. Same result.

    • @Abbycado I think nude can sometimes refer to a color? haha

    • In that context, yeah. I have a nude bra, for example.

    • So you can have a nude bra, on a naked body? hmmmm...
