Are you comfortable with nakedness?
Nakedness is not for everyone. Are you comfortable with your naked body?
This a difficult and at the same time an easy question. A lot depends on ones mental makeup and the all round environment in which you are brought up. I don't mind being naked even in group, for example in a nudist beach. But many women will not think about it even as they are brought up in an environment where the watchword is cover your body.
In a way nakedness has sexual overtones and that cannot be denied.
Personal nakedness? I guess I'm comfortable, though I am trying to improve certain areas.
Naturally. Nakedness is natural: Naked we are born, naked we are leaving this earthly realm. To your sub question, my answer is yes, I am comfortable with my naked body, it is the only body I have; working on it all my life to appreciate along with my appearance i.e. every time I am taking shower (ha-ha), or at any appropriate place (!) in a solitude provided on cultural / traditional morality.
Hell yes. The naked body is the default of comfort. Clothes are a necessary evil. Everything comes off when I get home at the end of the day. If I get cold I switch to a giant house dress mumu thing, house coat and pajama bottoms. Sleeping naked is a necessity.
Only when I'm in the bath! Being British, I'm never that happy with a naked body, my naked body, anybody's body, but I'll make allowances here and there. Here in the 'West' we've become buried beneath layers of cultural conditioning, sexual angst and other curdling issues that often mean we become exceedingly embarrassed and crazed about nakedness, for no rational reason. Perhaps it's to do with the effect on children and what have you. And the cold weather.
I love it when documentaries are shown on t.v. about ancient native tribes living fantastic lives in warm jungles and often they're all mostly naked, apart from a thin covering. They have no embarrassment, no hang ups, no qualms or insecurities - such a contrast to us civilised people!
Yes, I am..perhaps not as much as 20 years ago but it's the only body I have. I never had a problem being naked in front of others where they are naked, too and used to visit nudist beaches occasionally. Now it is just at home...but I live on 40 acres so it is quite private and is not often there is anyone else around other than my wife.
Before culture or religions understanding you are born naked. If -->insert divine entity here<-- wished for us to be clothed, we would develop thick fur like that of a fox or wolf. I honestly think nudity laws are the number one ---- up of all the worlds current societies. Something so natural yet caught or reported could result in you going to jail for years? Really? Even worse things happen to middle easterners. None of us ever stopped for one second, used our brains we all clearly have, and thought "if i was naked in public right now and a bunch of people saw me - children as well - that I would be deemed a sexual predator and lose my freedom for years just because I am unclothed not hurting anyone?" When you REALLY think about things like this and put them in perspective I think they would sound more and more ridiculous.
With that being said - Yes I am ok with nudity, myself and others, groups or alone. Skinny dipping in freshwater lakes with your friends is some of the best memories I have.
Growing up in a hostile ghetto made me prudish. However, since escaping,, I have had multiple opportunities to discover new ways of seeing things. When I lived in Silicon Valley, one of my favorite activities was visiting hot springs. Most of them are clothing optional (mixed company), and many are free. I have never experienced a problem at one; everyone is very respectful. As a result, depending on the circumstances, I am very comfortable with nudity.
P.S. Look for my next video, "The Streak".
P.P.S. What did the preacher say to the streaker? "Repent! Your end is in sight!"
(There's more than one way to take that...)
I have received the opinions of many individuals on nakedness. It's amazing how people see nudity. I don't have a problem with nakedness. It is the choice one makes and believes in about nakedness.

Jesus said for us to love our neighbor like we love oursselves, can we love our neighbor that much?I know how much I love myself. I think it goes without saying for all of us. Jesus told us to love our neighbor's with the same amount that we love ourselves. And what exactly defines our neighbor?...
