Me and my boyfriend have been togethre for two and a half years now, but for some reason I still cant bring myself to let him see me naked.
Even if its in a non sexual sense, like if Im just going to the shower or something.

Im not sure why not, I mean, it took a year before I even let him see me without a bra! I just get the feeling that this isnt normal...

I love him, and I dont mind seeing him naked at all, but I just cant let him see me. Me and my friends talk openly about this kind of stuff all the time, but when I told them all this they all seemed to think it was a little strange.

I tried to take their advice and just let him see, but I cant do it. If he even tries to, or if I think he's going to be able to see me -its more "down there" than any other part of me- during sex or whenever, then I just freak out in my head. I try to make a joke out of it, and he doesnt really mind, but I can tell it bugs him a bit, and its making me feel like Im just weird.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to overcome this? Or what might be causing it?

Any advice/ideas are welcome

Thanks

Hey Trippy, perhaps reading through this could help you out?

I'm not sure that you can relate to the heavyset issues that are addressed in the link, but Heather gives some sound advice there that can be used within different contexts. [Smile]
