Why is it that so many women find home nudity a big turn off? I enjoy being nude around the house and that there is nothing better than sleeping in the nude but when the suggestion comes up, women run like hell! They never seem to mind the sexual aspect of it but scoff at the idea of otherwise being nude together. Fewer women would even entertain the idea of going to a nude beach or even getting nude in a hot tub in the privacy of my own home. Why is that?

I primarily sleep in the nude... rare is it that I sleep with jammies on. My kids have seen me naked. Nudity isn't that big of a deal. Naked doesn't equal sex you know.

While I have no problem being nude in my home or around *some* people.. I'm not comfortable being nude around everyone I know... or even people I don't know. Go figure.

Like everything else "fear of the unknown"; it's a new experience.

Believe it or not, nude beaches are, for the most part, asexual. Those of you laughing, or saying BS have never been to a nude beach have you? All nude beaches that I am aware of are actually "clothing optional"; meaning you could wear a snow suit if you wanted to. Take her to a nude beach. Do it as "a lark." Let her know you'll be wearing your suits. Once you get there you'll be amazed at how fast it goes from being a novelty, to being normal to boring. Once you've relaxed, "go for it" and slip your suit off. Again, you'll go form watching everyone to see if they're looking at you and laughing to completely comfortable in about 10 minutes. Then you can stand up and walk around for a few minutes. Once you are comfortable, it is amazing at how liberating it is. It feel so "natural"; it really does; and, YES, asexual. I'm a guy. I'm a very sexual guy. I have seen absolutely drop dead beautiful women at a nude beach; and sexual thoughts are actually lessened. I guess it's because if she's wearing tight jeans, or a short skirt, you are racking your brain imagining what she looks like naked; and when you see her naked in a non-sexual setting, all the work has been done for you, LOL. On the flip side, seeing people 30-40 years older than you naked isn't "gross", it's natural. Well, there goes any chance I had of getting a date on POF, LOL.

Some are just more comfortable with nudity than others.

My father may now fit the 'old' stereotype, but he set the tone in our household when I was a kid and my sister and I followed suit. Mom wasn't comfortable being nude around us, but had no problems with the three of us wearing or not wearing whatever we chose around the house. To this day when he's here for a visit he'll often take nude jogs through the woods. Mom just smiles and shakes her head.

I don't take it quite to that extent, but as a long time whitewater enthusiast, I find most of my friends of either gender find it a lot easier to not have to go to great lengths to seek privacy when we're changing into dry clothes at the end of a river trip. For those more modest, nobody makes a big deal about it, but "don't look or don't care!" is a commonly heard phrase at river takeouts.

I've never felt inclined to seek out a nudist beach or nudist camp or some such, because for me nudity isn't the point. Being comfortable is.

Living alone out in the boonies I wear or don't wear whatever feels comfortable, and if it's hot, that generally means nothing at all around the house. Usually when I'm outside I'll have at least shorts and sandals on, but that's more to avoid ouchies in sensitive places than for any other reason. If I take a dip in the pond or creek I skinny dip so I'll have dry clothes to put on afterward, and sleep is always done naked. I've never worn anything in the hot tub, and sometimes make the five minute trek from house to hot tub naked, sometimes not.

The women in my life over the years have mostly shared my practices, but not all, and among my river friends I don't notice any gender bias when it comes to nudity comfort levels.

One of the reasons I live in the country!! ^^^
I can pretty much walk my whole back yard naked and noone would know!

Glad I have a dog that lets me know when someone is here.....because 90% of the time I'm either naked or have very little me time to grab a robe before they get to my door!

You warm weather states are complaining?

Out here in the hinterlands of the Montana Mountains -30 F (-80 F with a wee wind chill) is not unknown. While I am a fan of clothing optional around the house I am thankful I have a new gas stove in the living room alongside the fireplace. And the wood stove in the basement, the central furnace, and hot water boiler. Yeah, I know, a bit of redundancy, but am in the process of finishing a major remodel and heat sources kind'a accumulated. Anyway, the redundancy makes the clothing optional thing possible when it's howling outside.

if they can see me from those heights.......more power to 'em!

wondering if anyone actually wanders around outside when it's below zero outside no matter where they live? (other than to hop in the hot tub!)

I do. Doesn't bother me that much as long as I'm dressed for it...

In the context of this conversation.......being "dressed for it" would negate the whole
"nudity" aspect!

I once worked where they made doughnuts. For the first few days I found it cool to get the rejects and take them home by the box full to eat. But after a while it was all sugar, coloring, and flour in different mixes. I was satiated..................... need I say more. I've never wanted doughnuts the same way since.

Heck....I walked around nude all the time in my old house, in front of the windows, at night, lights on...
neighbor was smacked one time because he told his wife he was looking at stars....which happened to be nearly identical and flesh toned

She wasn't very happy needless to say...

that was quite complimentary of him, modivin

he considered you a STAR! or maybe he considered the ta-tas the twin stars of Nebulon or something

It's your house. I live alone and home nudity is a must. If they have a problem with that, they are stupid. Do they shower with their clothes on too? Seriously, they act like they were born clothed. It sounds like you are encountering the wrong women. People always talk about the right ones and wrong ones, you just painted a more clear picture of what the wrong ones could be.

I can be found in panties and a white shirt.
thats far as i go for home

That is good enough for me, but some are even too prude for that.

Well, genitals aren't the most attractive things on men or women.

Speak for yourself, I've seen my share of adorable vaginas.
