  • There is nothing wrong with nudity, especially in your own home.

    When I still lived with my parents, I once tried sleeping naked when I was 13. I liked it so much, I threw away all my pyjamas the next day. My parents did not like that, and said they would not buy new ones, and I should sleep in underwear now. I didn't; I slept naked ever since (I'm 37 now). Sleeping naked, I also found out that being naked feels much better than being clothed, also during the day. So I wanted to be naked at home during the day too. But my parents would not allow it, so when I was naked, I was effectively confined to my bedroom. This lasted another five years, until I moved out at age 18.

    At my own place, from then until now, and the rest of my life will be the same, I do not wear clothing when I'm at home, at all. I take everything off when I get home (just like you would probably take off your shoes, I take off everything), and I don't put anything back on until I have to go out again.

    The only exception is when I'm sick; then I will wear something during the day, but in bed I'm still naked.

    When I am forced to wear clothing at home all the time, I start to feel trapped, uncomfortable, and as a result frustrated. So when I was dating, I never made a secret out of the fact I am naked when I am at home. I think I have lost some potential partners over this, but this is something I feel defines me.

    I met my wife in the summer of 2020. Due to covid, everything outside (restaurants, movie theaters, etc) was closed, so we dated at my place. On our third date, I felt comfortable enough telling her about me usually being naked at home, and that this was something I will never change. So if we really became a couple, she would see me naked far more then clothed. She accepted it (even though she is no nudist herself). We married in the summer of 2022. I am still naked all the time at home, she usually remains clothed.

    If we ever have kids, I already told my wife: this will always be a clothing optional home. At home, everyone has their own choice to be clothed or naked. Nobody is to be forced either way.

  • my girlfriend and i like to practice some nudity in the house and have experienced some other naturist activities as well. as adults we choose to do that. however, when we have kids, im not so sure id do that. i guess i see + and -. I guess the good is they would be comfortable with their body, the bad is i wouldn't want to expose them to that when too young

  • I think nudity at home is bad because it means nudist beliefs and teenage hormones will be in conflict and before that it will be nudist beliefs and children’s innocence being at war with each other and usually the thing against children’s innocence wins when they come to understand it.

    Nudist beliefs should be for adults and legal age groups because by then they have already made their own opinions on life and from there they get to decide if that’s something they want to uphold/ stand for or be a part of, and by then they’d be at an age they can appreciate it.

    I was a kid who wasn’t taught anything about being “proper” at a very young age as no one really does, but when I had an unfortunate laundry situation and my mother didn’t get to do the laundry it was seemingly allowed I could walk around with no bottoms, and I’ll never forget that. My family to my knowledge and accreditation, aren’t perverse, nor did they ever mention it or tease, but it angered me and made me uncomfortable. Since that situation had happened I grew up being OVERLY covered and “appropriate.”

    If your kids grow up realizing it’s not allowed outside everywhere and other parents do not uphold these things with their kids, the children could react in negative ways being overly covered to make up for what was missing, feel that their parents took away some right of theirs, especially having to be forced to see their naked parents in a home. It seems almost like- inhumane because the children can’t just CHOOSE to be elsewhere while their guardians would be dressed exposing parts that seem a bit degrading or lacking consideration or even just basic effort.

    it’s not like you have no access to clothes? It’s not like we are a poor country or it’s a hot drought or something. To actively choose not to because you yourself like it? I don't know

    I just don’t know how that sits.

    At beaches with other like minded people or nudist friendly places, seem alright, but at home with kids who are confused and forced to be thrown into it or forced into it just seems wrong.

    • If all the other animals can deal with it, we should be able to, too.

    • @FunkyMonkee you can deal with it, if you like 🤷‍♀️ I know I for one, will not deal with it.

    • Then I would suggest Googling and reading "205 Arguments and Observations In Support of Naturism" that pretty well explains what nudism/naturism actually is and the real benefits that can come from families living in that type of lifestyle.

  • I see nothing wrong with public nudity at all, now public sexual acts is not what I'm referring to. As such, nudity at home is no big deal either.

    I literally grew up naked 90% of the time, I hated putting on cloths and rarely had to, except for things like school.

    Historically, humans were more open to nudity in the past than they are now. Hundreds of years ago, before the Christian revolution, ancient Greeks, Romans and other societies has no problem showing their bodies.

    Clothing was usually invented to stay warm in the winter.

    Sure it might get a little embarrassing if you happen to get out of the shower and your older brother and all his friends happen to be right there to see you, but its no big deal.

    My mother didn't want any of us to feel ashamed of our bodies under any circumstances. That nudity itself is not sexual in anyway. It is what people think that makes it that way and we can't control how others think.

    • @aerissa_jade you nailed it.

  • I grew up in a " clothing optional" home. Whatever I choose to wear, or not to wear, is not a big deal. I never understood why this has to be so taboo in western societies.

  • I think naturist families are ok. So as long as nudity stays around their house, I don't see what's wrong with it.

    • @pbandj_nerd correct.

  • It’s not for me at all, but other people can do what they want in their own homes.

  • I'm alright with nudity anywhere except shopping or having a meal,

  • What are your views on naturist families? Nothing wrong with it.

    Are you ok with nudity at home? Yes. I am not really a nudist but Hubby is.

    • At least you are open minded

  • I was brought up in a naturist/nudist family, and now that my wife and I have a son, we're still nude at home a lot of the time. Our son rarely goes nude, but if he wanted to we wouldn't stop him. He doesn't mind us being nude though.

  • No, I wouldn't be used to that and would feel uncomfortable

  • O hell no, I don't think so. It only means someone can fart and no one can tell how did it. And god help me, if this white sumabitch likes me and it shows. In that way.

  • Hell No!

  • Totally fine with it and fine with nudity in the home.

  • I had no issues at my house, not a big deal

  • I have no “views” on how other families should behave. But I am not OK with nudity around the house.

  • no its weird

  • You weirdos can be naked all you want, but don't subject your kids to seeing your nasty flabby asses

    • Yeah, I think that’s disrespectful to the kids a bit lol

  • I was not raised in a naturist family, but if I ever do get the chance to have a family, they will be raised naturist.

  • I grew up in a similar style household and loved it

  • I try and not judge but I dont think I could ever stroll around naked in front of male family members

    • why not?

    • for obvious reason, it's more easy for females than it is for males, males can't hide their excitement which might be awkward and taken in the wrong way, even though it's natural and uncontrollable.

    • I did it in front of my dad and brother every day (and still do) and no one thought anything about it.

  • Never wanted to see a family member naked good god!!!

  • no... we are not animals

    • @sheenagwapa An animal is a living organism that feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli. So we actually are animals. The highest order on earth, but still animals.

  • Personally I feel comfortable going nude around some family members, and vice versa. I think those whose whole family are on board must be pretty neat. When I have kids I'll probably raise them a bit of both. I know whatever the parents do is default, so I'll just sometimes wear clothes and sometimes not. Then they can know all the options and dress however they want—In the house or another safe space, of course.
