#31 Nakedness

Clothing can be such a pain in ass for Asperger People. Too tight, not tight enough, feels scratchy, the list goes on for material and fabrics that rub their sensory sensitivities the wrong way.

Because of this, some Aspies prefer to just be plain naked.

Usually this is confined to a private area, such as one’s own home or apartment, but there are exceptions.

As children, they might have been little “streaker tykes,” taking off clothing that was unbearable in any environment, including public places. Some Aspergers might still take their clothes off in public, depending on their level of fitness and audacity and the amount of money offered that has enticed them to do so.

Nakedness is natural and fine, but Aspies must beware. Google is watching.

Google Maps is a lovely application that allows you to stalk, or uh, view a detailed map of many areas, all the way down to the color of the mailbox in front a person’s home. Because of this, being naked in the backyard, even with a privacy fence, comes with the risk of you exhibiting yourself on Google maps.

What’s more, one woman reported that Google maps was able to peer all the way into her living room and spy on her cat. Scandalous! And that cat wasn’t even naked.

This could only mean one of two things: 1. Google likes to look at naked people. 2. Google likes to look at naked Asperger people, knowing Aspies like to get naked.

It is probably a combination of both.

So be free, be naked, but don’t forget to close the opaque curtains.

    You hit the nail on the head again with this one!

    I totally like to strip after getting home from a long hard day at work.

    Too funny! 🙂

    Its amazing how every new Aspie definition continues to be exactly like me. I love nakedness, and want a nude beach.

    Clothes are just anti-nakedness devices as far as I’m concerned #smilesandhugs

    My son used to strip all the time in the backyard. Actually, he’s 10 and he still does…

    One time, when he was about 2 of 3 years old, he stripped off and escaped from our back yard. I didn’t realize that he’d found a way to open our padlocked gate and spent precious minutes searching for him behind plants in the yard.

    When I finally discovered the open gate, he was nowhere to be found. It took me about 30 minutes to locate him about 10 houses away. He’d found some girls and gone into their house totally starkers to play with them.

    Even worse, the other parents had called the police and it took a bit of convincing to get him back. I had to show them my drivers licence etc. It didn’t help that my son couldn’t speak at the time either.

    Hmm. I disagree strongly with this one. I NEED clothes and I NEED them to be worn at all times-both by me and others around me. I’m a firm believer in modesty and keeping yourself covered at all times. You wouldn’t catch me dead at a nude beach or walking about with nothing on. Of course, I don’t have as or anything else on the spectrum, I’m just kinda picky. And raised that way. Clothes are there for a reason, wear them at all times.

    This is precisely why I used to work naked for some time. It just feels so much better. In fact some of my naked coworkers were also Aspie, thank God. Nothing like working with your own beautiful kind.

    Maybe there is a syndrome where people have a phobia of nakedness. It certainly does not exist in some societies. It takes training. Do all people in the naked bike ride have Aspergers?

    I’m a female aspie who loves to be clothed

    The tags in my clothes drive me insane, sometimes even when I’m in public I’ll just pull the tag in the back of the neck in my shirt and tear it off in such way people would say I thought no one was looking, its just that I CANNOT STAND THEM, it feels so unbearably uncomfortable.

    I like SOME clothes, but i’m forced to wear ones i feel too uncomfy or weird in in public, and i look at lots of nude art, so i feel comfy with my own nudity.

    I am almost never cold but i have to wear loads of coats and tights because i live in norway and everyone considers it their business wether i am cold or not.
