I have some Catholic friends and we've talked about this stuff, and what I get from them is the Catholic church has nothing against having sex for pleasure. Lots and lots of sex. But between the right people who are committed to each other.

We have communal showers at school and there doesmt seem to be any issues with all being naked in them. Sometimes you see a girl trying to hide their boobs a bit but when they see other girls just running around and not worrying, they seem to get less bothered.

I have also been to beaches where lots of girls and women were topless and there wasn't any problems there, although you do get some boys staring, like they have never seen boobs before.

Happily bi and (probably) turning gay.
Feel free to chat.

I never loved a high school shower, but other forums for open shared nudity I've found to be fun

And the funny thing is sometimes the same ones who are scared of showering naked will send nude pics that end up on the internet!! It's kinda funny actually

I think it's all a confusion with nudity and sexual desire. My family is very casual with nudity, like in a very non-sexual way, but other people they just can't look at a person's body without having sexual thoughts.

While I wish people were less uptight about it and would learn to separate the human body from sex, I still say to each their own. Like, I would never force my more open ways on anybody.

The youth pastor told us it's an inborn respect and reverence with those parts of the human body involved in procreation - creating life, and caring for new life (breasts for breastfeeding). He told us he'd bet we'll all feel perfectly fine being naked with our spouses when we got older because God gave us sexuality to enjoy, but in the right way.

But I have talked to nudists who are religious and have no problem being nude. It all depends on what religion and what personal belief the person has. But as others have said, nudity shouldn't or doesn't have to be about sex. You can be nude and not thinking about or wanting to have sex.

The title of this post is weird. It's not just fear that keeps some people not wanting to be nude. Some people are self conscious. Some people will get nude with some people, yet not want to be nude with other people. Lots of different people have lots of different feelings.

Personally I like being nude and really only have hangups about nudity based on what I THINK OTHERS are thinking. For example I can be naked with anyone in my family except my mom, grandparents, and aunts/uncles (basically anyone old except my dad bc I just imagine right or wrong that if they see me naked that they would be surprised). Also I don't always like being naked when others aren't it just feels weird. I feel like if I am naked than you should be too. Just so we have equal playing field. I run with my teammates before school so when we shower we are often doing so when first period PE is in the locker rooms. We are naked and they aren't. It just sorta feels weird lol.

What you're saying is that for you, it depends on the situation and the people involved. I like how you judge each situation as it comes up.

I don't think there's an absolute right or wrong. It really depends on the individual, that person's family and for some, community.

I'm having a great time here. I'm open to chat, too.

I wouldn't say it's a "fear" of being nude, perhaps it's more of a self-conscious behaviour since not everybody is comfortable with their bodies and the way they look at that particular moment in time. Also, maybe it's not respectful to be nude when amongst certain person(s).

Always open to meeting/talking to people, so feel free to add me as friend or pop up for a chat

I don't get it either, I'm proud of my body, and I don't see it as something shameful. The only thing that makes sense to me is that people are afraid of their bodies being judged for being out of shape or not big enough in certain areas if you catch my meaning

Hey guys, like I said in my introductory post, I'm not going to be adding any boys as friends, so please don't ask. Sorry, I have my reasons

Yeah I don't really get it either. I'm on sports teams and the boys there are very open about being nude changing and walking to the shower naked etc. After PE class it's a different t story where other boys are covering up and all. But like it's perfectly normal in my house for my brother and I to be lounging around in our bedroom naked and our sister to be in her room naked too. Also my brother and I both hang out with friends and play video games naked, share beds with friends naked etc. So it really depends on the family and experience I think
