How modest are you around family?

Do you see other family members nude? I mean in everyday situations. My family have always been very open with things like that.

  • Yes, we are also very open. I think the human body is beautiful and we should teach our children that they should not be embarassed by their bodies.

  • clothing optional household... nothing wrong with nudity, its normal, natural, and isn't anything to be ashamed of.

  • immediate family - daughters no issue at all with them seeing me naked. 13 yr old son - no.

    extended family - there is never a time when we are in a situation that our clothing would be off.  I have no issue with it (females only) but my in laws are very modest and would have issue with it.  There is never a time that I can think of where it would be appropriate or necessary to be naked in front of a male relative.

  • I'm pretty open about it....I usually judge their comfort level....I have one daughter who is extremely modest and I respect that, another that isn't and I respect that, too.....My husband is very modest, even around son is 10 and I've started being modest around him for his own comfort....although he doesn't seem to care one way or the other.....
