I Must Confess…I’m a Prude
Hey there, friends. How has your week started out?
I’m hoping it’s going to be a good one for all of us but just remember you can make it truly amazing by starting off with a clean slate and confessing via I Must Confess. Just sayin…
In last week’s post I asked whether you are an exhibitionist in change rooms or whether you try to hide away.
Taking into account the title of this post, I think you can guess what I do every Saturday morning following Delilah’s swimming lesson…
Yes, I am the mother who ducks into the toilet cubicle to get changed in private. I have always had a problem with showing my body in public, in front of complete strangers. Always.
It’s not that I’m consciously ashamed of my body – I have worked hard in the last year to shed some kilos and start looking after myself better. But I’ve never been comfortable putting myself out there – so maybe there IS a touch of shame there?
Hell, I’m not entirely comfortable being naked in front of my own husband – and we have been married for 13 years this year (so there’s got to be something a little odd about that, surely?)
But that’s not all. I am also uncomfortable seeing nudity as well. I know it’s natural and that I shouldn’t feel uncomfortable, but I still do. Personally, I would like to blame it on 13 years of Catholic education but I’m not sure that’s completely to blame…
I must confess that still blush when I inadvertently see more than I should in a change room or when I accidentally catch a nursing mother adjusting herself or when a sex scene comes up on the TV. I’m not sure why, but all those situations make me feel uncomfortable.
It’s like I’m barging in on a moment that is not for me. I certainly don’t have a problem with the act of getting changed or nursing or having sex. Having done all three of those things, I have no problems with them at all. 😉
However, witnessing them when I’m not involved seems to be an invasion of privacy in some way. And I think that is the aspect that makes me feel so uncomfortable.
So there you go. Now you know that I am a mega-prude, what are you going to share with me this week? You can share anything you like, be it old or new. And remember the linkup is open all week – so get to it!
