My answer was obviously, "Um, yes! More than one woman said to me, "You're so brave. I could never do that. I'm too self-conscious about my [insert body part of theirs I had actively envied] to be naked in front of other people. Apparently, being naked is still a radical act.

DO you shudder at the thought of stripping off — and then demand to have the lights turned off before sex? If so, you are not alone. Half of women dread getting naked in their own home, a new survey has discovered. But what if it was MORE comfortable than wearing clothes? Posing nude to put a tick on her bucket list, widow Janice, 59, from St Ives, Cambs, admits being naked is much easier than trying to find cool clothes for women her age. She says:. She had a very repressed family and her cousin sadly died having a backstreet abortion. So she was often naked around me and my brother — and told me the facts of life at five. As a result, I love being naked and always walk around at home with nothing on.
Nudity , or nakedness , is a state of being in which a human is not wearing clothing or is not covering the genitals. Nakedness was the natural state of human beings in the tropical climates where they first evolved and continues to be the norm in many isolated indigenous societies during the 21st century. The modern understanding of nudity is culturally complex due to different meanings given various states of undress in differing social situations. In any particular society, nudity is defined in relation to being properly dressed, not in relation to the specific body parts exposed. For humans, nakedness and clothing are connected to many cultural categories such as identity , privacy , social status and moral behavior. In Western societies , there are two contradictory cultural traditions relating to nudity. The first comes from the ancient Greeks , who saw the naked body as the natural state and as essentially positive. The second is based upon the Abrahamic religions , which have viewed being naked as shameful and essentially negative. The fundamental teachings of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam prohibit public, and sometimes also private nudity. However, the interaction between the Greek classical and later traditions has resulted in Western ambivalence, with nudity representing both positive and negative meanings in individual psychology, in social life, and in depictions such as art.
