Well, I asked this, because I never saw a male parent nude, and in fact, the first place I saw a nude man was either on t.v. or a porn magazine, which instilled fear of the male body in me. I also remember finding a book called "Who am I" that my mom had hidden from me, which was a dirty cartoon book. Funny, I always forgot to tell her that! I may have been molested by a man when I was little and blocked it out.
Anyways, I just wonder if I had seen an adult male nude, and in a non-threatening way, if I would be so uncomfortable, even now, with the male body, or if I should shelter my daughter from seeing ANY adult naked male, in any form, including art. I tend to think that if she sees the male body as beautiful, and normal, maybe she won't be so creeped out like I am. I still get really kind of uncomfortable about dh's nude body. It is something I need to work on, and having a son has helped me a little.
