Dear Poll: Are You Comfortable Being Naked?

I treated myself to a much-needed massage this weekend. Relaxing in the steam room and taking my time in the locker room was exactly how I wanted to spend my Sunday afternoon. While I was getting dressed, I noticed that some of the women I was sharing the bathroom with weren't all that comfortable being naked in front of the other women.

While I happen to not be very modest, I understand that some women are not as keen on the idea of walking around naked in front of strangers, so ladies tell me, do you feel comfortable being naked in a locker room or spa bathroom?

I am comfy naked. But I like to have my man nude too.

Not so comfortable with my nudity. I do not think nudity is wrong at all, just my personal hang up. Although I think I look good, I just need some cover. My man is naked all the time, and looks great naked to me. In fact if he doesn't complete strip naked when he gets home, I know something is wrong at the office. I wish I were as comfortable as he is but I never have been at ease without at least PJs on.

of course i am. once in the locker rooms, i even started humping a woman i didn't even know in the nude (it was a dare), but she got angry and pulled out all of my pubic hair. my genital area was sore for weeks, trust me. to add to that, i even walk around my house naked. of course my mom, dad, and brother have seen me naked, i don't mind at all now, it's happened so many times.

I get uncomfortable when other people seem uncomfortable with me or themselves being naked, even if it's just changing. So I try to be considerate, but honestly I'd rather not worry about it.

I am the most modest person in the world. I haven't worn a bathing suit in 37 years, I am 50 now. Health problems prevent me from obtaining the kind of body I would like, I also have some physical problems that would require surgery. So for now, I am happy with who I am, I am happy in the skin I'm in, I love myself just the way I am, but I am not going to show my stuff to anybody!

I am not comfortable being fully naked in front of anyone besides my boyfriend, but I agree that it all has to do with social constructs, since I'm perfectly comfortable in a string bikini, which leaves very little to the imagination...

Eternity commented that there must be a difference between the European and American mentality. I'm inclined to agree. Was recently at a beach in Spain and the scene was so relaxing, peaceful, body types (men and women) of all kinds and all ages. I could literally feel the attitude difference in the air - no criticism, no judgment, no hate, no obscene leering. It really surprised me. It felt awesome. People were out enjoying themselves rather than feeling trapped by their bodies or what other people might think. What a prison we put ourselves into here in the States!

I am not comfortable at all being naked around people except my boyfriend. I can't even be naked in front of my own mother. I am very shy in that respect.

I'm comfortable with my body, with my boyfriend, changing in front of friends, but I like to at least keep some sort of bottoms on in a room full of strangers.

Doesn't bother me at all. Friends, strangers, doesn't matter. I like being naked.

i cant believe lots of people on here think its NOT NORMAL to be modest hahaha!! thats hilarious! im with giggle, dont like seeing ppl naked and dont want them seeing me that way. just before i got married though i was always trying things on and i stopped caring if any women (as in the person helping me in the store) saw me in my underwear.. i guess u get used to it... but now... i would be horrified. the fact ive put on weight since then prob has a lot to do with it but i would never have gone naked in front of anyone either.

Jadorechaussures and candi_s: I live in Japan and go to the onsen (public baths) once in a while. Ever since Japan opened to the rest of the world, more precisely since the 50s or so, there are no mix public baths anymore: men and women cannot go to the same baths anymore, thank god! Japanese people were not against it (they've had mix baths for centuries before that) but foreigners didn't allow that, so they had to change the rules. However, public baths are very, very relaxing places and even if all the foreigners find this disgusting at first, they all get convinced and end up going there regularly. Basically, the other women are just like you: they're naked, they have the same body parts as you do and they're also shy sometimes! Anyway, if you ever come to Japan, you should not miss the Onsen!! This is one of the best attractions in Japan and is also very good for your body and soul!!

I used to be incredibly shy about baring it all in front of other girls. One of my best friends had no qualms about it, and I saw her birthday suit plenty of times whether I was comfortable or not. Then I went to an audition camp where the towel hooks were a good distance from the shower heads. I stood at a locker for a good bit, freaking out. And then I saw all the other girls nekkid and realized that I looked better than some of them, and they weren't looking at each other but rather talking about rehearsals that day. One of the most liberating moments in my life was taking the shower and not caring anymore. I might not even be opposed to being a nude model for a sketching class.... as long as I don't know any of them personally!
