What’s Your Nudity Threshold?

By Monday, July 11, 2016

It turns out I'm more comfortable being nude than Meg. Perhaps it was from years of showering with my field hockey team in university. Somewhere along the line, I became more at ease being nudey. If we used a scale from 0 to 5, with 5 being totally comfortable naked, I would sit at 3.5 and Meg at a 2. I've ...
