    Re: Answering the door naked

    Both my in-laws and my parents have a key to the front gate (our property is secured, no one can get in without us allowing them) and at least one of the doors to our house is normally open so they can easily walk in on me. Incidentally although my parents and in-laws know I am a nudist, they haven't seen me nude.

    Apart from the (important) legal consequences, conformance with social norms based on some sort of "respect for others" is to
    automatically give up the high ground. It is a concession to the idea that being nude is aberrant and unacceptable behavior.
    The right to live our lives by rational standards is compromised by fearful conformity. Oh, gee, look at the time. Well,
    of to watch DWTS now.

    martin30: Interesting information you give about nudity being illegal in the Philipines. Many years ago in the county in Illinois where I grew up, there was a doctor from the Philipines. It was reported by trustworthy sources that his house had no interior doors. I had often wondered if that was a cultural, Filipino, thing, or if it might be related to the fact of the town he lived in being just a few, maybe 10 to 12 miles from a nudist park, wondering if he was a nudist, in other words. It doesn't seem possible for more than one person to live in a house without interior doors and not occasionally see someone without all their clothes on. I really don't know how many people lived in that house. Or if it was just a personal eccentricity. He has passed on some years ago and I have no idea what happened to the house.

    But I guess now, based on you statement, that if he was a nudist, he probably didn't get it from growing up in the Filipines. And probably didn't get 'no interior doors' that way either.

    Thanks, but I still wonder about that. alfredr

    I live in the Philipinnes now, nudity anywhere is illegal, even in the home according to Statute as raised by the Roman Catholic church of the Philippines, very backward and inward looking side of said church. Ignored by many I beleive. When I was in the UK I used to answer the door when I was naked, In used to work so sometimes I would be dressed durin the day, I was retired and doing a voluntary driving job and may only be home for a short period between jobs. Weekends I was always naked and if the weather was not wet I used to go walking nude along the cliffs near my home or throuh the woods. There were a few times I unexpectedly met people, yet no one complained most passed the time of day, many stopped to chat, even made a couple of friends that way, non nudist yet when visiting me accepted me being nude, if I went to visit them I was invited to strip if I wanted, occasionally in the summer in their garden I would. Went one Saturday and found after I had been there quite a while they were having a barbeque evening with other friends!!!!!! The first ones arrived when I was still nude, told not to dress, we had an evening of discussion on nakedness,naturism how the Bible looked at it and modern mankind, very enlightening and interesting.

    I might have said this early on in the thread -- but answering the door in the nude COULD bring charges. If you were to open the door while you're nude, and there were kids on the other side of your doorway -- selling Girl Scout cookies, collecting for the CYO, handing out Bible tracts, etc. --- you could be in serious legal trouble, in spite of any "CAUTION - I AM NAKED" signs you might have.

    There are also laws in many places that amount to being nude to intentionally cause affront (offend people) or alarm (scare 'em). If you do that for a yuk-yuk, to see what kind of reaction you get from the Jehovah's Witnesses, you could end up going for as we say in Massachusetts, a "ride".

    unless you are 100% positive who is on the other side and you are 100% positive that they know that you may possible be nude, and you are 100% positve that they will be 100% ok with it, then no, do not answer the door nude. it is NOT a good idea and NOT worth the possible hassels it may bring you.
    If someone just opens the door and enters without knocking or warning and find you nude, then shame on them and they have no reason to complain about you being nude. I also feel that at that point they have given you the choice to cover up or not and they have lost their vote in the matter. Privacy and respect is a two way street.

    If you are in a nudist community then answer nude, if in a textile community then dress appropriately. The key is to respect societal norms of your community.

    I agree, I have not answered the door nude and will not for respect to the caller.

I felt it was a shame that she could not be comfortable in a safe nude environment.
    A couple of days ago while nude, I opened the door for UPS. The regular driver was sitting in the truck and a newbie was bringing the package to the door. We have a sign on the driveway announcing we are clothing optional and that vistors may encounter nudity. The regular driver seemed to be amused with sending the newbie to the door. I accepted the packages, and said thank you. The new delivery guy didn't seem the least bit rattled with my nudity.

    There is a time for everything, but answering the door naked is not one of them, unless you are expecting someone over who knows of your nudity. If someone opens the door without knocking and catches you in the buff, then you are not in the wrong. With a sign in the front window, everyone knows what they might expect should they blare right in. Our Daughter moved in a house 2 house down the street. She has been over several times, and each time, she will knock to see if the 'coast is clear'. Our Grandson, who lives with us, obviously knows of my nudity, and at times will open the door without knocking and will catch me. He is not overly accepting, but will tolerate it. To that, I will cover, but not after he had his accidental 'view'. LOL

    I thought the smiley faces meant the driver would be very, very, very happy to pay for that route.
