Why are men way more comfortable with nudity than women?

Like when in an intimate relationship guys can just undress and be in unflattering poses.

They just do not care how they look naked when they are in the moment.

Why?

  • Women are constantly told to cover ourselves up from the time that we are very young girls. We can't walk around with our shirts off when it's hot. If a little girl's clothes show too much people freak out. Everyone worries about little girls being violated or kidnapped, so they must remain covered at all times. But, little boys get a pass, because people do not think they are as at risk as little girls. This judgment follows us from the time we are born to the time we are adults. We go from being at risk to slutty. We go from in danger and cover up to "you're asking to be raped". We are brainwashed into fearing our own nudity.

    In addition, girls are constantly judged on our bodies. Every little flaw is held against us. No one fears our flaws more than we do or sees as many as we do. So, most of us are in constant fear that the people we are intimate with will also see our flaws and possibly more that we missed. They may reject us at a vulnerable moment over them.

  • -Guys are less insecure
    -Womens bodies are constantly treated as objects of sexual desire so it can feel ludely immoral to be naked around others
    -One hand can cover a dude's nether region, you need a little more censorship on a woman's body. Ergo, easier to just wear clothes
    -Women are trained to be modest. Consider the way each gender sits. One folds a leg over the other to conceal everything, the other goes spreaaaaad out. You can imagine which of those two would feel more comfortable without the clothes on

    There are prolly more reasons but that's all I can think of rn

    • @wiltingrosepetal The normal female body is beautiful with no disgusting parts in open view (any possible features are neatly concealed between the legs unless deliberately exposed). The same is not the case for the male body.

    • so you think penises are really ugly then?

  • It's strange a lot of women are uncomfortable with nudity yet I had a discussion with the girlfriend and she said women end up in more situations where there bits are on show to more people than men end up.

    Women have a lot more reasons to have to be examined by doctors visually, poked and prodded. When having a baby you have your vagina on show to an entire delivery room.

    So yes it's strange women are uncomfortable when nudity isn't required. Where as men are more than happy to flop our dicks out at a whim.

  • Because we don't care. Majority of guys remove their shirts in public and absolutely nobody cares it isn't much of a jump to remove pants and boxers as well.

  • I don't think they are. I think it is really pretty much equal for both sexes. I know I have no issue being nude and have quite a few friends who are just like me. We strip naked camping and skinny dipping and with most of it no sex was involved just a good time.

    • @katiesmuff Should be that way everywhere.

  • comparing myself with the beauty standards set on display everywhere is not helping at all :D

    I think much more is demanded of women (starting from the body, classic face features, great hair, nails, makeup, etc.) than men. Also, the historical and cultural stuff, like connecting women's bodies with a sin or temptation ale, created a kind of more or less conscious feeling of shame...

    • Then again it's not from the outside in , but the inside out.

    • @Djaay I would say it's both. Some things are cultural, some are coming as trends. So cultural are more inside-out, but trends outside-in

    • Biological chemistry is always inside out. A force that's not comparable.

  • I think its because we feel we are judged more harshly on our bodies and deep down we feel we don't measure up.

    • Yes. For sure. And we are. Also, the advertising and now the filter culture.

  • Is that really the case, I feel there are women like that too. Early on in dating, sometimes I felt the reverse. But to answer your question, I have never been shy about nudity, maybe because guys have less to hide? Shirtless is a normal thing , and for me being in sports and locker rooms and into swimming wearing nothing but a speedo, getting naked doesn’t feel awkward

  • It is likely more comfortable, because they are not judged as harshly as women upon their appearance.

  • they want to show "it" off more 🤷‍♀️

    • Oh. Absolutely

  • I love being naked in my apartment, alone or even when my best female friend /sometimes sexual partner comes to stay

    It feels liberating, and physically comfortable ! Sensual too !!

  • if the guy is not overweight there is nothing wecan care about our bodies, a mans only sexual part is his penis and that is the only insecurity a non-fat man can have and if he is not insecureabout it or on the countrary he is proud of it then that's it, there is nothing else matter enough fore us to be self-concious.

    • Men have wayyyyy more sexual parts than their penis. Trust me.

    • we don't consider them to be sexual to us, our penises is our manhood the rest is just... there i guess.

    • Nipples, ears, perineum, balls, thighs. Men have lots of areas to play with.

  • We care less, if at all, about what other people think or will say. Excellence to us means that it doesn't matter what gossip goes around- we can succeed at what we want. A consequence is function over form. A man's home to him is first and foremost a place to rest, relax, recover and defend from invaders.

    • That was rather intense.

    • Acknowledged.

  • Being allowed to wear whatever I want since I was young, as well as little as I want, I've gotten comfortable and confident in my body. I do think it does depend on how you are raised and the amount of freedom your parents give you.

    Thankfully my parents have given me plenty of space and freedom to wear what I want and how I want. Something I'm sure boys get to do more often than girls

  • Cause they get a lot less social stigma for it, so they get comfortable with it in time.

  • Unlike women, men won't mind how they look if they're about to have some sexy time

    Women care about how they look, how they appear, even when they're about the have sex.

    I had a girlfriend who was just reluctant to even walk around with underwear around me, even though we were living together. She just wasn't into being nude probably because she thought her looks can't be edited at that state

    • Edited haha. Yeah, it's gotten that bad. When women don't even realise dudes want you to come after cleaning all day when you're sweaty and musky and they want to rail you until you look like you've been put through a spin cycle.

  • Reality is for most men, being visibly insecure is many times more off putting then his actual looks could ever be.

    You have to own what's you're rocking or at the very least fake it till you make it.

  • Men are usually more confident than women.

  • I think the whole human attitude to nudity is strange. We literally all have the same. Sure different shape and sizes, but fundamentally we are all the same.

    I feel comfortable stripping off.

    I guess it could be that if I strip off, I won't be sexually harassed, whereas a woken being naked is More likely to be assaulted.

    • Oh just an errant look that lasts to long can have dire consequences.

    • Radiate143. What dire consequence? That a threat?

  • sureeee. that is why so many men have things like onlyfans where they are showing themselves off to the world for money. (sarcasm) seeing as tyere is something like 10 women to every guy who do adult content. in fact, look at how disproportionate it is to the number of male to female celeb sex tapes and scandals out there (barring the ones like a jeffrey epstein) . there are what maybe 20 guys where as there are about 100 plus women?

    as to why men are less selfconcious about their nudity (percieved as so anyways) , could be due to everyone knows that there really is no such thing as a dick that is pretty and we accept that. on the other hand, have you seen how many guys worry about their dick size?

    • They are a small portion of the female population. They have makeup, filters, fillers and who knows what else to change their natural figures. Hardly a picture of security.

    • And people will do nearly anything for money

    • if you want to call around half ir more of women as "a small portion of the female population".

  • Well that is true. My dad and two brothers are always naked. My mom and I cover at least our privates, but I started being topless.

  • I’m more focused on nude women.

    Form follows function, I suppose.

    With my ex, it did build intense trust baring ourselves to each other.

    • As it does. I had a partner purposely kiss areas he knew made me feel self-conscious and play with them.

    • My ex hinted that sometimes. If it was rooted in her worrying about my perception, I’d give her the tongue test. She was unnecessarily insecure about things that I liked about her.

  • Simply because men are naturally less anxious and some don't care if they are good looking or not.. They'll walk around naked.. As women get older they start to become less neurotic..

  • Mostly we live with muddy at home, my girlfriend and her mom.
