I know a lot people who say they feel free when they don’t have on any clothes. I, on the other hand, am quite the opposite. I prefer to be clothed at all times. Remember the Garden of Eden when Adam & Eve walked around without any clothing and felt no shame until they ate from the Tree of Life? Well, I feel more like Eve after she ate the fruit from the Tree of Life – self-conscious & guilty. Although we all came into this world naked, I still don’t feel right unless I have something covering up my body.
People who live alone say it makes them feel good to not be covered up when they’re at home and will walk around all the time in the buff. But is it really all that freeing? And what exactly are you being freed from? If your clothes are that restrictive, maybe you should consider buying a larger size (lol).
What exactly is the point of being naked anyway? You have to wipe down wherever you sit (before & after sitting there), you can’t “accidentally” scrape up against sharp objects in your home, hot or cold food can spill all over you and who wants a higher heating bill in the wintertime just because you don’t want to wear a robe?
I also feel like when you are naked you are subject to scrutiny even if it’s coming from yourself. You’re just putting yourself in a position to over-analyze your bodily flaws. It’s like looking at the junk drawer in the kitchen that you keep saying you’re going to organize. It’s not perfect (like our bodies) but as long as the drawer is open you’ll feel like you need to clean it out (like walking around naked). Just close that drawer already!
See, I already know what I look like naked so I don’t need a constant reminder every time I walk by a mirror. You’re probably thinking there must be something wrong with my body since I’m anti-nudity. Well, there’s nothing really wrong with it “per se”. Sure, I have a few scars from when I was younger & fell off my bike and sometimes my legs go unshaved (okay, a lot of times) but I don’t have any weird bodily deformities or anything, I just don’t like being naked. Plus, when I’m at home I leave my curtains open because I prefer natural light & I don’t need my neighbors getting a peak at my “goods” and start mysteriously avoiding me forever.
Personally, I feel like people look better in clothing. The right clothing can accentuate your body and make you look better than you ever could naked. Wouldn’t you get tired of seeing the same person naked over & over? I know I would. Even seeing a nice body again & again will get old after a while. Besides, I like a little mystery – who gives away the answers to a magic trick? Nobody, that’s who. I prefer a man who might be a little “revealing” without giving me the “big reveal”.
It may seem weird because I am almost never naked but if it were up to me, I would shower with my clothes on.
