Just for the record I don't hate my body (not saying that I couldn't be in better shape and lose 10#). I'm not ashamed of it and I actually think I look better without clothes (clothes tend to make me look shapeless - you can't tell there are actually little curves and things under there).
Even when I am free to wear, or not, whatever I want I still tend to wear some clothing most of the time - for temperature regulation and protection from the elements...and because I don't like random bits of stuff (dog hair, bits of grass and leaves, dust, etc.) sticking to my squishy bits.
For me it is mostly about comfort.
Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (23+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (4+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
Lotus: "it's complicated"
SLeW: platonic girlfriend + BFF
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
