Casual Family Nudity
1 out of 1 members like this post. Like this post? Yes | No    

I am a 45 year old woman with a husband and three kids, all living at home. My daughters are 23 and 20 and my son is 14 (the baby of the family).

I wouldn't call us nudists since we are never nude outside the house and have no desire to go to nudist resorts or beaches. But we are extremely casual about nudity inside the house with each other, and are very comfortable with our bodies and discussing sex with our children.

I am a stay-at-home mom and am generally naked all day along. I keep a robe handy just in case. No one outside my house ever sees me naked.

My husband is not comfortable totally naked but goes about in his shorts.

My 23 year old daughter is just like me - very comfortable with her body and is naked 24x7 inside the house. But she has a job as a lawyer in training and is away most of the day.

My 20 year daughter prefers to wear a T-shirt or sweater and panties in the house.

My son is a puzzle. He was extremely comfortable nude in the house until he was 12, and then suddently became more modest. He generally goes about in his shorts and t-shirt even tho' my daughters and I have been very open to him about accepting his body as is.

That's what I figured. He has to go thru' his teenage years and come to terms with family nudity (or not). He is the baby of the family and is somewhat spoiled by his older sisters, especially my older daughter who mothers him constantly. Hope he overcomes his shyness. Just two years ago he was completely comfortable cuddling with his sisters when they were all naked.

Your husband wears shorts, your daughter wears tshirt and panties, let him choose and when/if ready it will be his decision. I agree, he's a boy going through big changes and he should be allowed to go through those changes at his pace.

I don't want to give a wrong impression of our family life. There is absolutely no sex or inappropriate behavior of any kind. It's just that we are very matter-of-fact about nudity and are very comfortable showing or not showing any body part to each other. I believe in "growing up without shame" and that's how I was raised, and want to raise my kids. Even my second daughter who remains mostly clothed has no problem removing her panties in front of other family members when she has to (like peeing in the bathroom when someone else is at the sink or shower etc). I insist we lock the bathroom when we poop - some lines have to be drawn.

My only concern is that my son is not comfortable with his body with or without clothes.

If I may be so bold, I don't think that your son is uncomfortable about his body so much as he might be noticing some "reactions" that have started happening to him at his age. Innocent as you want it to be, to a 12 year old boy cuddling naked with any girl, sister or no, is bound to prompt a physiological response. And while it sounds like you have tried to raise them to respect sexuality as a natural thing and placed boundaries around what you consider to be "inappropriate", the fact remains that boys cannot control much of their sexual response when you start entering puberty and the hormones begin coursing through their veins in earnest! I know from experience that sibling attraction can and does happen even when we know better, and he might just be afraid of some of the things that he is feeling with his twenty-something sisters parading around in the buff.

(to barefoot matthew) I'm no psychologists but you may be right, though I hope not. If he is feeling something for his sisters, it's time to have a long, heart to heart talk with him. If that doesn't work, I'll have to insist all of us become a textile family. I absolutely cannot have any inappropriate thought or behavior at home.

I'll have a talk with him when we're alone (and fully clothed) and figure out what's going on in his mind.

I grew up as a single child totally naked in front of my parents all my life, and never felt anything sexual towards my parents. In fact I used to think my father had a particularly ugly body, though I really admired my mother.

I don't think you should or need to talk to him. He realizes it wouldn't be right and that is why he is clothing himself.

Like Matthew said, sometimes things can't be helped. He will grow out of it and things will be normal - not that they aren't now, it seems like he knows what's goin on just fine.

I think I should talk to him. I don't want to alienate him from the family. The two girls are adults and can take care of themselves. I need him to know he is an important part of the family. I'll let you know tomorrow how the talk went.
