My curtains are always drawn.
It is not to keep the heat out.
You know the guy across the street from the Friends apartment on TV?
Yup That's me. Naked Guy.
My kids are use to. They think it is completely normal.
My hatred of clothing has had a few positive impacts on my kids.
They are not embarrassed of their bodies.
Changing in lockers rooms is no big deal.
Seeing the human form in art is not giggled at or made fun of. It is just part of life.
So I walk around naked. That is until my husband gets home.
I run for the closest robe, blanket, mumu dress on hand.
After a decade and a half together a lot has changed.
When we started dating I was a size 0. I am now a well rounded size 16.
I want him to remember the old me.
I walk around and still feel skinny until I catch my reflection in a store window.
Then I freeze for a second. Trying to figure out if I really look like that or if the glass is just distorted.
Nope I really look like that.
My husband came home last week and I dashed over and grabbed a blanket.
He came over and sat next to me.
"Why do you do that?"
"You don't do that with the kids?"
"I would love if you walked around the house naked."
He kissed me on top of the head and went back down the hall.
I'm a photographer. I shoot naked women who want photos for their significant others every week.
These shoots usually have endless hours of questioning and outfits. Women who are afraid to show off their bodies but want to.
It inspired me to create Birthday Suit Sessions.
No fancy corsets, crazy heels you can't walk in, and hours sifting through Victoria's Secret or Fredrick's of Hollywood.
Bed head tousled, rolled up in sheets.
That sexy thought your lover couldn't get of of their head when you were first dating was not of you in a black nightie but of you tangled up in the sheet in the morning light on the pillow next to them.
These sessions are simple. Effortless. And HOT as hell.
Do I now walk around naked in front of my husband now?
I do let my towel slip a little more though when he is around lol.
