Earlier today, I stumbled across an interesting article in which Dwyane Wade described how much he loves walking around his house naked.
“I’ve got this saying now — I’m always naked,” he told PeopleStyle. “But before, I was never one of those guys who ever felt comfortable naked. I was always the kind of guy who, even in my house by myself, I used to have shorts on. And I got to a point in age where I started feeling more comfortable being naked. But it took me until I was 30 years old until I felt comfortable — I’m 33 now.”
Initially, I was going to put together a news post based onWade’s comments; however, something far more interesting came as a result of a conversation I had with my coworkers.
“Where are his kids when all of this is going on?” my boss asked.
“Y’all parents never walked around the house naked?” one of my coworkers asked. “I know in Caribbean households, parents are naked around their kids all of the time.”
“Oh yeah girl, my mom never had on clothes,” another coworker, who is of Jamaican descent, shared.
This led to everyone chiming in with both hilarious and awkward stories from childhood about adults who had no qualms with letting it all hang out. With the exception of two incidents with an eccentric aunt and my grandma from the deep south, I didn’t have too many experiences with seeing adults butt-booty naked. My parents didn’t really play that.
We concluded that previous generations were probably a little freer when it comes to nudity in the household, but I guess we really won’t know until we have children of our own.
So chime in Noirettes, do you walk around your homes in your birthday suit when the kiddies are present?
