  Nudity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nudity in front of a sexual partner is widely accepted, but there may be restrictions — for example, only at the time and place of sex, or with subdued lighting, or covered by a sheet or blanket.
Nudity in front of strangers of the same gender is often more accepted than in front of those of the other or both genders, for example when bathing, in common changing rooms, etc. Gender-specific restrooms serve to prevent accidental partial nudity in front of the other gender.
In certain structured settings in which nudity serves a practical purpose — such as providing access to a patient's body during a medical procedure or therapeutic massage, or providing figure drawing students with unobstructed views of the human body — an individual may be naked in front of one or several clothed people.
