A reader writes:
It’s not a secret I’m very anxious to be socially nude, and I thought for a moment (after seeing a Twitter tweet saying “RT if you like to walk around naked at home”) how much of an exhibitionist I feel being naked at home, but only when the kids are not home. I don’t know how to describe it, but I feel like I’m doing something naughty by waiting for alone time to do what I enjoy. I wonder if it’s something you can discuss in an upcoming Naturist article.
I would like readers here to chime in on this subject, because no doubt some of you experience this sort of thing.
I’m guessing it must be difficult for all naturists who live with people who don’t accept naturism and nudity in the home outside of the bathroom and the bedroom.
Then there is the tricky issue of parents being naked around their children. Many parents teach their children about body acceptance and naturism, and whole families participate in public social nudism events at pools, beaches, campgrounds and the like. But it gets trickier, I think, when it comes to nudity in a home where children are present. There can be legal ramifications.
Our reader is wise, I think, to wait for the kids to be out before peeling off his clothes. I would do the same thing if I had children, even though the family might be naked together at a social event with other naturists.
As for our reader’s feeling of guilt, I suppose that is a remnant of the taboo mindset about nudism so prevalent in society. It probably takes all naturists quite a while to shake it off.
