Nude with kids.
Is there a point to these posts or are they simply to elicit more boner comments and get yet another erection discussion going from our, "hard ons are healthy," sub culture?Particularly when asking about "bones" in the presence of daughters.
Yes, I've already replied once but this keeps lingering in the back of my mind. And, yes, my adult daughter has seen me with a boner a few times.
We raised our four kids as nudist almost from birth so yes they saw us nude all the time. We never tried to hide anything so morning wood was nothing new to them.Erection are a natural bodily response,so associating it with inappropriate behavior is socially irresponsibly.If the nude community chastises people for have erections then they are no better then people who associate nudity with immoral behavior.So children should be taught that erection and nudity is part of thenatural world,but offensive behavioris not.
NakedLoving makes some crucial points. If the nude human body is treated and respected, be it male or female, then children will grow up with a healthy attitude to the body and sex. The problems we are facing today are due ENTIRELY by those whopush to makethe naked body shameful and put unreasonable and undue emphasis on the sexual organs.The best place to learn respect and understanding is in the home. We are, as a nation bringing up young people who are repressed sexually and we are seeing the consequences in the sexualisation of TV programs etc Advertising which sell sex to sell a car for instance. Society is giving mixed messages to children. Start the healthy thinking and attitudes in the home. Children will then see the double standards for what they are, rather then being confused and ending up being either prudish or with loose morals.
The typical social nudist response is to NOT flaunt an erection, rather cover up, jump in the pool, or roll over until it subsides but no one freaks out as long as it doesn't appear to be a deliberate act. Starting the process at home in the presence of one's own family with open, honest discussion probably would allay many fears over time among society.
It's the puritan ingrained throughout society that treats erections as erotic, dirty, sinful. I believe most of the discourse is people trying to rid their thinking of these influences. In this forum there is little resistance or judgement. If it was on Facebook, God forbid, people would be reporting the "pervert". Firestorm ensues. Discussion lost and learning stops before even getting started. Be grateful that we can answer the question and allay the fears put there by society's finest citizens. The ones who look with disdain at all is us as they look through pornography on their computers. Nakedness isn't the problem, man's reaction to it is when it's directed in an unhealthy way. The equating of nudity and sex, the salacious and wanton use of the human form, the deviant behaviors, these are the things we need to overcome. If these frank discussions shed light in just one person's life, it's worth it to me. Save the children from a puritanical society and raise them with a healthy understanding of the body and it's glorious functionality. My only regret is that I allowed my wife to convince me that it was unhealthy to put the kids through the dichotomy of clothed outside the home and naked within to avoid problems with the ex-spouses (mine and hers). I put my beliefs on hold for many years because it was easier. I didn't get upset if the kids saw me naked nor chastise them for being naked, only wish we had encouraged open nudity.
I would have liked to remove any ideas from the minds of my kids that being naked is wrong or some thing to be condemned; would perhaps do them to good to grow up without ideas imposed upon them...... but my husband, strongly disposed against nudism, would not see reason and so they are mostly excluded from it.
