Issues of nudity
I don't know if this is the right forum to ask this question. Recently I went to sandy bay, the nude beach, and saw a boy and his parents tanning naked together. I guessed him to be between 18 and 22. To me this is very abnormal. What kind of home life must they have? Are there any ppl here who grew up in that kind of house?

Hi Tina,

in some families nudity is not considered to be taboo or something to be ashamed of. You may also want to ask whether you were making assumptions about what you saw - were they a family?

It might feel abnormal to you, but that is about your experiences being different to someone elses - you have to ask yourself should we be judging?
