I posted this about six months ago... well, now we are back to square one for about the hundreth time. We have bought a child toilet seat for home, too, apart from that we are no further. I am glad to see that we are not the only ones who have tried "everything" and feel this frustration.      
We have the same problem with our 5 year old. Just like OP's son, he also has two older siblings who were potty trained without my really doing anything. We were very relaxed about it for a long time, but this has been going on for such a long time now, and we are getting worried that he is still going to have this problem when he starts school. :(   Just like the OP's son, our son will consistently go to the toilet when naked.

Last Tuesday, in the changing room after DS' swimming class, I noticed that one of the boys is circed. He is about six years old. It is the first time I have ever seen a circed penis, and it was actually a surprisingly un-shocking experience!   Now, I must say I didn't think he looked that different at all! I don't think I would have noticed if I hadn't been aware of the problem through this website. So, do kids really notice in the locker room, if they don't know...
