As I have been back and forth about the subject of nudity and whether or not it's acceptable; even feeling guilty sometimes for wanting to walk around naked. I am reminded of the passages in Isaiah chapter 20. Isaiah was naked for 3 years looking for a sign concerning the Ethiopian slaves in Egypt. They were finally commanded to strip completely naked as a sign against the King of Assyria, by the Lord himself. I know that this was not for recreation, yet for religious purposes. I feel the same way sometimes. Shedding all of my clothes is like shedding the world, especially when I get home from a few weeks on the road. Anybody else feel the same way?

There are moments that I feel I should be clothed. With all the confusion going on right now I have a daughter that is online learning and a wife that is working from home. Today I cleaned the house while nude and in between chores I was taking a rest. My daughter asked why I wasn’t dressed and I replied that I get sweaty when I clean and I don’t like my clothes to stick to me during the work. She accepted that, but I think she is increasingly becoming uncomfortable when I am not dressed later in the day. That is why I am working hard to get my chores done when she is behind closed doors then I can be dressed while she is in the open. So long story-short, I don’t feel guilty when I am doing some work or just relaxing when others that don’t understand aren’t around, but I do feel guilty when they are. As for the coming home from work, I love the idea of “shedding the world.” When you look at the behavior of a dog, they shake from head to tail when they have experienced something troubling; they are ridding their muscles of any trauma. That is how I feel that shedding the world is, getting rid of clothes in a wholesome manner is like removing troubles from your body. If my daughter were not around when I got home from work, I would undress and go through a relaxation routine. Hope this helps.

Maybe with Zoom she's afraid that you will be seen. Are you completely naked or just have shorts on? Is family nudity common in the house? I can relate to not liking work around the house with clothes on. I do yard work with just a swimsuit on. Once I start to sweat, I can't stand that sticky feeling. Sounds like she is, obviously, accustomed to seeing you naked. Probably just a little self-conscience with her friends. I can understand that. There are a lot of weird things going on right now. Yes clothes are the first thing to come off when I get home. However, my wife wants me to at least have a pair of shorts on most of the time.

My wife is a school teacher and has to hold classes online. Right now she has a desk in our bedroom as that is the place she has the most privacy for holding classes (video classes about every other day). I know to stay away from the bedroom when she is in class or has meetings, and I do that whether I am dressed or not. Her and I enjoy being nude, but that is something our daughter has regressed with on her own volition. We live in an apartment and would go swimming as a family in the complex pool. We would all undress in the garage and hang up suits and towels on a drying rack and then walk to get into the shower. Since my daughter didn’t like the shower in her bathroom her and I would go to ours and clean off. No that we have moved into a house and she likes her bathroom that has stopped. She is also heading into puberty which, I feel, plays a part in her actions. Long story short, I enjoy being nude the most followed by my wife. Daughter doesn’t feel comfortable with it at this point, and I am not going to press the issue; I will answer questions as they come.

Pretty common from what I have read especially about girls losing interest as their bodies start to change with puberty. But if you don’t pressure her or make a big deal about it she will probably find her way back later in life. Especially if you treat it as no big deal, let her choose to be nude or clothed and you keep being you. No matter what it will help with “de-porning” the human body.

As I wrestle with my desires to sleep naked at night and still keep my covenants concerning the garments, I was reminded last night of a talk that President Ballard gave about fanaticism. There is a time and place for everything. I have a hard time sleeping with even my garments on, because I sweat at night. Plus I am not a small guy. The garments bunch up and I have to always fix them. So I feel very comfortable knowing that the Lord understands me.

I have issues with things being on my waist at nights. I have thought about the one-piece garment, but then I am concerned about the bunching that you describe. Nude at night feels right, at least for me at this time. I believe that HF knows my heart and knows that I love the garment, but at night it needs to go for a better night’s sleep.

I wouldn't make the change to being always dressed in your daughter's presence unless she asks for it - and then, after a conversation for discernment about right actions. By dressing, you are affirming the idea that nudity within a family is bad, which I don't believe is true. But if she's merely uncomfortable, then over time she'll get over that. And if you're uncomfortable with her discomfort, that seems like the perfect opportunity for a thoughtful discussion.

A few years ago, I approached our children to let them know I expected to begin undressing as soon as I got home from work each day - unless there were guests in the house. All of them have seen me nude since birth, but until that point it had been generally only in the mornings and at bedtime, or while camping/skinny-dipping etc. I asked them all for their feedback, and all of them told me without hesitation that there was no issue for them. So, sometimes talking about it can be beneficial!

I also don't like underwear binding around my crotch at night, so I usually go without. During the colder winter months, I'm more likely to wear my garments. Perhaps it's a rationalization, but I feel comfortable doing this. The temple interview asks (don't get nervous, the Church News published the questions) "Do you keep the covenants that you made in the temple, including wearing the temple garment as instructed in the endowment?" The only instructions given there (it's public info) tell us we must wear them "throughout your life." That is between ourselves and God.
