        Back when I used to do family therapy the subject of family nudity would come up.  In other words, is it okay for parents to be naked in front of their kids and does the family do things together in the nude?  (Nude here in no way means anything sexual going on.)

        Some examples include:
        1.  The family swimming/ hot-tubbing together nude.
        2.  Mom/ Dad freely leaving the shower nude in plain view.
        3.  Coming out of the bedroom nude to check on dinner, get laundry, etc.
        4.  Urinating or having a bowel movement with the restroom door open.

        The research tells us that nude-togetherness among family members had no adverse effect on development or sexuality.

        The lack of family nude exposure seemed to produce trauma later in life when the adult child had to see their parents nude for the first time in a care-giver setting.

        Your thoughts?  I would be very interested.

        Hey drpsyce38,

        Interesting subject, my best friend has a 16 yr old son and a 15 yr old daughter and when we went to Vegas last month we started talking about it.  She is ALWAYS nude.  She has always been one of those parents who will get out of the shower or get ready for work partially or undressed around her childrenand there is nothing wrong with it.  She is from England and that was how she was raised.  Myself I don't walk around nude in my home, probably due to the fact when I was growing up it would have been "wrong" (my parents are CRAZY). 

        I gotta agree with you on lack of exposure, I am SURE my sons will pass out if in my old age they have to change my depends. hehe

        Hey Doc,

        I am personally not for it at all. Call me old fashioned but i would not want my kid to see my romping through the house butt ass naked! I think some privacy is important as well as who is seeing your body.

        I understand your question as being non sexual....but let me ask you this. Part of sexual attraction is seeing the nakedness. If it becomes routine and brought up in a enviorment where its the norm.....is it possible to every really become attracted sexually by a naked person later in life?

        Lips...okay, I am getting out the journals and text books for this.  Yes, I think OVER exposure to nudity does NOT effect being sexual healthy later.  However, here is an issue.  What if boy, 13, is sexually aroused by his nude mother.  Not that mom is being a perv, just the 13 year old see her "parts" and nature takes it course.  Does this cause mal-functioning sexually later???

        In other words, would you want to marry a man whose first sexual turn on was over his mother (or sister)?  I don't think there is enough research to answer this one....that I know of.

        Shelli, that is the counter-arguement to free-for-all family nudity.  Yes, family nudity may be "okay."  But, as a psychologist I cannot but wonder what happens to a young male whose sexual awakening revolves around his mother or sister.  And what does this do to his future marriage?  I have been doing some research on this topic and have discovered there is very little material.

        there is the counter arguement that sexual attraction WONT revolve taround he nakedness of another if one sees it quite commonly in their parents....like one who sees too many violent movies or scary movies and is desensitized to its impact. Perhaps that child will develop attraction to their partner based on understanding and communication and compatibility as opposed to wanting to see their partners' naughty bits

        Doc,

        Sexual awareness starts at a very young age. With hormones raging and wires not quite connected properly yet, could in some cases cause arousal in abnormal situations. If one was to act out the sexual impulses...thats when life gets peverted and twisted. 

        In most cases i don't think a person will act on it nor be scarred for life as a result of the arousal. I believe its the discovery of our sexuality and a growth process.

        How about the theory that men who are attracted to womens breasts is a result of being breast fed as a baby. To me thats a fallacy.

        Lips...sounds like you taking Psych classes!

        I agree...just because one is aroused does not mean there is a present, or future, problem. 

        Yes, I have read some on that theory:  Breast feed males grow up to very much enjoy suckling their partner's breasts.  Here is the research problem with that:  It becomes VERY difficult to measure non-breast feed males "time" at the nipple when they are adults.  And also, what qualifies an adult male to be a "breast man?"  How the heck do you measure that?  So, I have to agree with your brilliant assumption.

        Now, to get REALLY controversial!  There is more evidence that BAD potty training causes sexual mal-functioning than family nudity!  Thoughts on that one, Lips???

        Doc,

        No psyche class.....besides why would i need one when we have a resident doc right here at LCB!

        Potty training......always trying to push that envelope a little harder aren't you doc? Ok, i will give a shot on my theory.

        I don't think that there is any comparison to nudity and potty training as far as making a person sexually dysfunctional. If a child is brought up in an environment where nudity is common in the household then it does not tamper with the psyche.

        I can see the effects on potty training causing a bit more trauma. It is about the sudden change that we are forced to adapt to. Not only the change, but it's the first real mile stone we face in life.

        How a parent handles that change is paramount to a child learning to accept it. A child needs to be eased into the transition and build that trust with the parents that its ok.

        If a parent comes on too harshly the repercussion can cause trauma on a child. Trauma can be associated and acted out in regards to sexual dysfunction later in life.

        It is amazing and how sexual desires are acted out in regards to the lifestyle we are brought up in. It seems to be the coping mechanism used to deal with something that was never quite understood on a mental level.

        To take it a step further, look at the serial killers. Many of these serial killers lived a childhood that was very dysfunctional. They lash out at people for the resentment that has festered in them, a lifetime.

        I will be waiting for grade.........wink!!

        ME push the envelope!  ...you should talk, Lips!  You and I are both from the "push the envelope school!"

        You and I should go into practice together!  You are very, very right.  IF the potty training parent is TOO anxious, it has long lasting effects on the kids. 

        If parents are pushing potty training, getting very angry, very frustrated, yelling, etc...it really screws a kid up...or at least has the potential to.
