I did not grow up in a naked house. When I was a kid, doors were closed while we showered and sandwiches were made while we were wearing pants. The body was not frowned upon; it was simply private. I continue to be somewhat ambivalent about being nude. I enjoy, for example, unclothed post-shower strolls around my apartment, and I love to strip down on the rare occasions when I have access to a steam room. But the limits of my affection for nudity were tested by a recent relationship with a very hairy man who liked to take his clothes off, and keep them off — even while doing mundane things like cryptic-crossword puzzles. People grow up experiencing varying degrees of nudity, of course. Supermodel Heidi Klum recently revealed that she was raised in a house with often and proudly naked parents, and chanteuse Christina Aguilera and her former husband once raved about spending Sundays in the buff. For Kelly Flynn, one of the best things about growing up in a rural area with few visible neighbours was the opportunity to strip down and run free.

On one excruciatingly hot days, sweat pooled under my unsupported breasts and my thighs stuck to my synthetic office chair. I was extremely uncomfortable and desperate to cover up. On other days, though, my nudity was liberating and fun.
The Coach and Horses pub in Soho was granted a license that allows for both team members and punters to strip down while enjoying a pint. Later today, between 2pm to 6pm, The Blue Lion Pub in Bloomsbury will be serving up classic Sunday roasts with an added twist: all guests will be stark naked. Those concerned about the nippy weather can rest easy, the organisers will request the pub to crank the heat up for the big day. We also always have to make sure the heating is on at venues during the winter. Next Sunday, British Naturism is hosting a quiz night at a pub in Abingdon, while on 14 March, there will be a three-course naked dinner in Hemel Hempstead. Or if you really want to go along today, you could just rock up and hope for the best — but it might be a very cold wait in the queue. Follow Metro. The Fix The daily lifestyle email from Metro.
