Nude, Naked, in your birthday suit, it's all the same and nothing to be ashamed of. (NSFW)
Admittedly, the title was meant to grab your eye, but if you think about it, what is it about being seen nude that makes people squirm? Remember when you were a kid and you would run around in your skivies or less, no shame, no embarrassment, no big deal. When did that change? Or why did that change? Was it something someone said to you? Did someone shame you? Or were you told that you were too old at one time? I have a pretty good idea it was one or all of those or even something else, that made you decide that you couldn’t be nude outside of closed doors any longer. But there is so much more to being nude then just sex.
Spending time nude as the day you were born is not only comfortable, but liberating as well, and going to a clothing optional resort, camp, or event is not as bad as you think. Why? Because nobody cares that you are nude and everybody is in the same boat. It’s no secret we all have something we don’t like about ourselves, but honestly when everybody is nude the flaws you think you have, seem to melt away. Being nude is natural and there seems to be health benefits as well. I know myself I am less stressed and love the feeling of the sun on my skin. It can also be a bonding experience among friends and I don’t mean that in some sort of exhibitionist or sexual sort of way. When friends are comfortable being nude around each other there is a level of trust, while at the same time showing that they have nothing to hide. I will admit growing up I would go skinny dipping with my friend and we would hike nude any chance we got. I miss that comradery and trust that we had.
As you can see I have what they call a dad bod. It’s a mix between working out now and then at the gym, working around the house, and yet still enjoying a pizza once-in-while. In other words, it's what the other 90% of us guys have and should not be ashamed of. Having a six pack and a sculpted body like a god, is in my opinion not realistic and takes far too much time to maintain, when there are other things I would rather do. What each of us has between our legs should be no more offensive than a finger, toe, or ear. It’s not like we all don’t know what is there, why get all upset about it? So, if you haven’t tried it before you should. Being nude seems to clear your mind and allow for important decisions to be made as well. Just get nude sometime and you will see it’s not dirty, disgusting, or perverted as it seems society would have a person believe.
