Many people are at odds with what their body looks like. It may be their bodies in general, or certain body parts. They are grateful nudity is generally considered shameful because that perspective allows them to keep their bodies hidden under a layer of clothes.
It's a well-known fact that women have more problems with body image than men. It's difficult to not sympathize with them. After all they are bombarded from the moment they are old enough to pay attention what the female body should look like. They can't have wrinkles anywhere. Their butts can't be too wide. Their breasts can't be too small. Their skin must be smooth and flawless. Even their inner labia must be the right shape, size and color. It's shocking, and a bit sad, how many women are subjecting themselves to labiaplasty these days.
Men have body image problems, too. Often it's because of their penis size. Too small. Even average sized men wish theirs was larger. It's amazing how many men are so self-conscious about their penis size, they keep themselves covered in gym locker rooms, and this kind of modesty seems to be growing generation by generation.
I speak of penis size issues from experience. Feelings of inadequacy, like it did with me, often begins when small sized boys hear comments in the high school locker room. Once someone asks you why your penis stopped growing, you have problems with it the rest of your life. It's one reason I couldn't get involved in naturism until I reached a more mellow age. Still I sometimes look at other men with a twinge of envy. Where they have a swing and sway, I have a bobble and bounce. In any group of men, I'm always among the smallest ten percent.
My negative feelings are finally behind me. By ready many articles on penis size acceptance, I've come to grips with my size. In fact I enjoy being a small guy. I think this is why I enjoy social nudity as much as I do, because to social nudists size simply does not matter. I can disrobe with a group of people and feel like everyone else, just another glorious example of human diversity.
