I was told as a young engaged woman that it was okay to take off my garments for sex, but that I should never drop them on the floor--and that I shouldn't fall asleep without them on.  Talk about interruption.  "Oh! I love you.  mwaa. mwaa mwaa--oh hold on, don't let those touch the floor! Here, let me take them.  Oh, okay...mwaa mwaa mwaa...."


Yeah, the mwaas were kissing noises.


And then to at the end of the actual sex act itself, interrupt pillow talk and the closeness of human contact to put the garments back on--and never fall asleep together touching skin?!


That's just wrong!  And yet I did it because some ecclesiastical Mormon Bishop told me that's the way it was done.

I have a very disheartening and disturbing feeling that there is a more insidious side of garments. Yes they separate us from the world but also from one another in the privacy of our own bedrooms. I didn't even realize there was a barrier, an actual physical barrier between my husband and I in our bed till the first night I didn't wear garments. I was so surprised. It made me cry.

We do tend to take ourselves too seriously where body image is concerned, especially in the morg.  That must be part of the reason for those stupid garments that everyone on the planet knows about, and it feeds into others' reasonings for us being so stupid.

That's a great story Cary!   I'm sure that missionary had many thoughts to purge from his mind after that incident .  I know I would have.  I'm sure it was shocking to yourself at the time, but fun to retell now.  Thanks for the laugh.

Several years ago while living in Sunderland, England I semi flashed a missionary. I was about 20 years old so the same age as them. 

My husband at the time was the ward ML and the Elders stopped by one evening while I happened to be in the bath. I heard them in the living room and heard the front door open and the missionaries go down the stairs and leave. So I got out of the tub and went to walk through the living room to get to the bedroom (it was an old victorian house so strange floor plan) I opened the living room door and right in front of me sitting on my couch was a missionary. There had been two sets of Elders come to my house but only one set had left.

His expression was pure shock. Luckily I had scooped up my clothes off the bathroom floor and was holding them in front of me. I don't think he saw anything, or at least not much... well at least not my boobs but how much of my lower half was covered I have no idea. 

I was so embarrassed, I screamed and quickly shut the door. The Elders left and that particular Elder never looked me in the eye again. LOL  We would pass each other in the halls at church and overt our eyes and politely nod, he would say "Sister Reid" to which I would reply "Elder"  

LOL it's really funny now, I bet that's a moment of his mission he won't forget!

The only attitude I still have about nudity is that of my son being uncomfortable when "catching" me nude at home.  Since he was uncomfortable, I didn't allow it to happen again.  My husband's parents paraded themselves around constantly for their teens to see, and none of the adults remember being terribly pleased by it.  After I joined the family, I wasn't comfortable with them doing it around me either, and I don't think it's because of prudish reasons.  There just wasn't any reason to be doing it when they did, and now, looking back, my husband is grossed out because his mother always had him washing her back while she was in the tub, or rubbing her feet and legs while she had nothing on.  He felt like mixed signals were being sent in the house, and wasn't sure what to make of them.

Thank heaven for nudity.  The very quiet, unobtrusive LDS forum---lds as big a part in leading me away, and beyond the LDS Church as anything I'd confronted to that point in my life's journey.  The gathering of mild discontents at that particular forum gave all of us an opportunity to talk about things that didn't seem quite right.  And this led to bigger and bigger questions.  And this led bigger and better answers than many of us had found before.  Getting right down to the fundamentals of our natures was a wonderful place to start.  It's good to take off our masks.  Many of us from the group have now found ourselves able to shake off our chains.  Could it be that the mere shedding of our clothing could be the key to happiness and truth?  It certainly was for us.

Well, I had a near embarrassing moment while living with my grandmother.  So I thought I had my door closed.  Had my trousers off, just sitting at my desk in underwear and tshirt looking at porn.  Then just as I was beginning to enjoy my solitude with said internet porn, she walks into my room.  Not even knocking.  Talk about an interesting moment.

Great story Pollypinks! Can't say I have anything to top that.  I'll see if I can come up with something.

No one ever saw me naked in the temple.  I was "annointed" by a woman placing her fingertips under my gown.  Totally weirds me out now.  As for nudity, all the years I got off work at midnight, I'd go home, crank up the hot tub, and climb in naked.  Wonderful experience.  I also wear baggy hippy like dresses in the summer sans undies, and we lived on a small hill.  Oh top of the hill was our home, and outside was our hammock was betwixt two trees.  I took my blankie and a book and a pillow and climbed onto the hammock.  It swayed this way and that way until it toppled me over, leaving my dress up around my neck.  My neighbor, Mark, was sitting right across the street on his steps smoking a stogie, and as I looked up, he gave me the thumbs up sign.  I was horrified, and my hubs was minorly pissed at me.  Every time I drove by Mark, thereafter, he gave me the thumbs up.  We've all got the same parts, some of us are a little older, and they sag a bit more, but oh yeah, they are the same.  No big deal.
