I spent an afternoon hanging out naked with a couple of, um, friends after staying over the night before and, I gotta say, the act of not giving a fuck about clothes was more pleasant than I thought it would be. Zero shame. Zero inclination to hide myself. Being naked in a social setting was a liberating experience, in spite of how mundane the whole thing was. We played games. Drank tea. Talked shit. The usual.

Like, I do this sort of stuff all the time with people I'm romantically involved with. Sleep naked, wake up naked, and hang. Why not extend the same courtesy to friends I would not necessarily engage with in sexy times? Wish people weren't so squeamish about people parts, or sex, but you know how it is. I think it's the conflation of being naked with sex that sours the average person on the whole nudist thing. Though, that day with the friends only worked because we've all already seen each other naked ... under different, sexier, circumstances. Maybe that's the problem? The inability to divorce nakedness from sex, with the latter being neccesarily tied to the former due to "logistics."

I'll take what I get in terms of nude opportunity. I used to live on my own and it was basically tiny boxers city, population: 2 nipples. I could care less about what I look like on my own (and around people that see me regularly). Been like that since I was a kid. Get home from school and immediately put on something more comfortable because looking good can get so uncomfortable. What's more comfortable than skin under a blanket in bed?

There was a summer as a kid when the AC unit at my parent's place randomly exploded (literally) and caved in the kitchen ceiling. Desert summers can be grueling. So, while waiting for the insurance to kick in, my family just hung out half naked in the living room with fans blazing away. I think back to that summer sometimes, all of us in our underwear, zero shame, zero inclination to hide ourselves. Just an average, mostly naked family chilling out in front of the TV (albeit slowly melting). Perhaps there's hope for being naked in non-sexy settings? High temps lead to less clothes. Implode the AC and watch as people shed their shame. Alternatively, implode the climate.

Yeah. I've written a bit about this too. The short of it is that sexuality, as a subject matter, encompasses nudity as a subject matter. And sexuality is like, a hard problem in many aspects.

I plan to do a post about climate change, lol
