As with everything, like not taking rides with strangers who may just be kind in offering to drive them home, or they might be a predator, we have to alert our children, for their protection about what they should or shouldn't do when you are not there to protect them, but if they are raised around other naked people including many who are strangers to them, and there is never any danger in that particular setting, but they are told to never let anyone coax them to do something like that in a setting where they might be alone, and they do not at all have any knowledge of that person, then I can't see that treating the body as all being a good thing rather than one part with exactly the same DNA as their hands and face is bad.<quoted text>
Sure I don't deny that we are culturally biased
And if we were talking about just adults then this is a whole different conversation
But there simply is np justification for letting a child think it is ok for an adult stranger to be naked in front of him. How much easier does that make it for a pedophile to inititate the abusing process? Why do you think most of them start either by getting a kid drunk somewhere, watching porn, or using an environment like a lockerroom where it is more acceptable to be undressed? We start making everywhere acceptable and we better be prepared for what comes next because we will own part of that blame. We have a responsibility as parents, as adults, as humans, as citizens, and as a society to keep our young ones safe.
I highly suspect that a lot of mental illnesses today comes from bad parenting, when the child is raised to fear things that should not be fearful, and thus when they are in certain situations they become excessively fearful to the point of becoming mentally ill.
I don't necessarily think, though that children need to sit in an audience and watch their parents engaged in sexual intercourse and other sex acts right in front of them. The act of sex, is something personal between two people, in most cases, unless several are all in agreement with some form of group sex, which unfortunately I never got invited to participate in, so keeping the sex act from the children should not be considered wrong, but on the other hand, if they accidentally walk in on their parents during a sex act, the parents should not traumatize them for life by over-reacting, but rather dealing with it in a protective and kind manner.
