Are you more relaxed about nudity as a family on vacation.

We have just returned from a family vacation. I have 3 sons and 2 teenage daughters and as a family we are usually quite modest around the house and everybody pretty much stays covered up. On our holiday however things were abit more relaxed and no one really battered an eyelid if someone was walking around in there underwear or somone accidentially walked in while you were changing.

  • We are in tighter quarters while on vacation, but we still keep the modesty level we do at home. We change in the bathroom, utilizing the locks so that others don't accidentally come in on anyone.

  • We are relaxed about nudity too. I mean, you live in a house together, you're bound to walk in on someone at some point. But we don't walk around the house and flaunt it. We change behind closed doors and since none of our doors have locks on them, someone can accidentally walk in on you. I'm not going to freak out just because I see a family member naked. It's not the end of the world and my eyes aren't going to fall out.

  • We are pretty relaxed about it here. The boys don't care if they see each other naked or partly naked. And none are at the age that its horrible if I see them naked. Though my 12 year old is pretty close to that age.

  • On vacation, my son and I usually share a hotel room with two beds. There's not much privacy, so yes, we see each other undressed more often than we would at home.
