Where Do You Stand: Nudity in Front of Friends

While it seems that women can hold onto some of the best girlhood behaviors like sharing secrets, gossiping about guys, and enjoying a sleepover every now and then, there are other things that may cross the line, one of which is nudity. Naturally, the older we get the more self-conscious we become. While I tend to be pretty open with it comes to revealing skin, some of my friends are much more reserved. So what about you? Are you and your friends comfortable enough to get naked in front of each another or is it crossing a comfort boundary? Where do you stand when it comes to nudity in front of your friends?

In my 32 years of being a woman, I've never been terribly uncomfortable being naked in front of strangers. I did a nude yoga class today and got completely naked in front of women and men (mostly the latter). It was a bit awkward to meet someone one moment, and then be stripping down in front of a room full of strangers the next. During the yoga itself, it wasn't awkward at all, but when it ended I realized I was standing completely naked with people I'd just met!

I don't mind changing and getting completely bare with a friend in the room as long as they aren't looking. I can't talk to someone face to face while one of us is naked lol.

Its never been an issue with me. If I need to change, I will usually say something like I have to get ready for work or get ready for the pool or whatever, this sort of signals that I am going to change clothes. If they stay, fine. If they excuse themselves that's fine too. As far as a limit that some have said, who ever is in the room is on notice that I am changing and if that means taking everything off to put on my swimming suit, well you should not have stayed if you didn't want to see my vagina.

It sounds like if your in some situation where you are changing what's the big deal? I used to be on a swim team. All my girlfriends would change and shower with me. Later on in life, I wouldn't care. I have a nice body. Nothing to be showing off or hiding more or less. Sometimes girls do it if they have a great body. One time I was in Miami and a bunch of us were getting ready to go out. The tallest slimist one got naked in front of all of us. I guess she was proud of all that hair laser work. Whatever.

If my female friends haven't seen me naked, there'd be a problem. I've no problem stripping in front of them, I've nothing to hide. Not to mention I have this gift to make them do it too :P People are just comfortable around me, I'm a goof. And the only man worth mentioning (that's a friend) that's seen me naked is my husband :)

I seen my best friend with no underwear on. We change in front of each other all the time. She asked me if I would care if she changed her underwear in front of me and I was like no. But it's not often we do that.

I don't really like it. I'm not comfortable with my body. I'd change my clothes in front of them leaving on my underwear but no nudity.

im in college and i always change in front of my friends. we would run down the halls without shirts on to borrow a top from someone else. some of my friends were modest and would wear bras while changing, or turn around, but most of my friends strip down naked. i guess its just common knowledge not to stare at someone, thats just awkward, but who cares! one of my friends walked into my room topless, while i was doing homework with a couple of guys friends, asking me if i could help her change her nipple rings. and i know thats definitely not normal in a group of friends, but it still shows how comfortable we are with eachother.. haha

It depends on the friend. I was on a basketball team with my best friend for four years. Needless to say, we shared a locker room together. If we go shopping together, often times we'll share a changing room if there's enough space.. it's easier than waiting for one of us to be finished before we show each other our outfits :) Similarly, when going out, my friends and I would change in the same room so we could help each other choose our outfit. I'd be less inclined to let my friends see me completely naked.. only my underwear.. but they've seen me in a thong.

I'm always changing in front of my female friends. I am not very modest in that dept & it's usually faster / more convenient to share a dressing room (since I'm always showing the outfits to the friends anyhow) or to change quickly in the same room, car, whatever - specially in vacations and such where everyone is running around trying to fit in as much possible in each minute. Topless and undies are ok, but my down there area is too much for me.

Im really not into it. The most I will do in front of my best friend is change my shirt WITH my bra on. She will sometimes do that right in front of me with no bra at all and I have to stop myself from cringing. Thanks but no thanks, dont force your big ugly boobs upon me no matter how close we are...

I don't mind changing in front of my friends but as far as hanging all out there naked, no thanks. I'm fine with my body and even if I had Gisele's body I'm just not the type to just lay it all out there. I find it odd. Sorry.

I wouldn't just hang out naked with my friends, unless we're in a hot tub or something, but changing is no big deal. I'm not uncomfortable nude.

i never change in front of my friends, ever. my best friend is the type who strips down completely in front of others and doesn't give a damn. the first time she did it in front of me i didn't know where to look, but now i can have an entire conversation with her without batting an eyelid - even though all her bits are showing. some of my other friends will happily change down to their undies, but no actual nudity. either way, i'm okay with that and they're okay with me changing privately.

I wouldn't mind people being naked in front of me or being naked in front of other people. Like the old saying goes: It's nothing I haven't seen before. But I think my friends wouldn't be comfortable with that, so I don't subject them to it. I mean, once my friend saw me in a (totally closed and knee-length) bathrobe and freaked out like I was streaking on her. Granted, she freaked in a jokey manner, but still, I get the sense actual nakedness would not be okay.

I've also attended all-female spas where nudity is practically required. However, I dislike changing at the gym because it's soo cold! I have to go into a stall, so I'm farther away from the AC ducts! As for changing in front of friends...I change in front of my mom, no problem. But...full nudity in front of friends is a little weird at our age. I used to do it as a kid and while I played water polo...Not now. Bra and panties is perfectly acceptable, though.
