    I have always thought that either you were dressed, or you were not. No half way shit.

    Consequently, for example, when I get undressd - for whatever reason, bed, etc. : I get totally undressed; I don't keep anything on. I also frequently wander around the place au natural.

    My partner has always been very different and usually wears shorts, a wife beater, and socks - even to bed.

    He frequently makes jokes about my uncouth barbaric American habits icon_lol.gif . Apparently he also finds it to be a turn on if I wear socks and underwear to bed for some reason. WTH - for him I am happy to do it sometimes.

    I really don't care what he feels the need to wear; icon_twisted.gif I have always enjoyed ripping open packages and presents.

    But here's the Q : Do you and your partner have very different habots/standards? and do they ever bug either of you? or do you think, like my partner, that it is sexxier one way or the other?

    I cant run around or sleep with less than boxers and an under-T-shirt.

    Walking around naked does seem rather uncouth to me. But, hey, I am virginian, and we have higher standards. I understand that today, kids dont call their parents "sir" and "ma'am." ... icon_eek.gif

    Sleeping naked is more of a personal choice to me.

    My BF walks around in this damn robe I would like to throw out. I usually wear some warm up pants and a wife beater.

    I can't remember a time I did not sleep naked. I won't let my BF wear socks to bed. Freaks me out.

    I also tend to be the more barbaric one. I will never stop drinking out of the milk carton. But I buy my own low lactose milk, so its mine to guzzle.

    Im with DJ on the socks front that would be an absolute no no.

    We both sleep naked but Im more akin to walk round au naturale either in my flat or on the nudey beach (he would just cover himself in a towel, roll his eyes and call me a tart on the latter issue!)

    I find it very hard to sleep with any clothes on. they become binding and usually get stretched out of shape. I know, I have to wear something when Im at a families house or around straight friends. I just find it more comfortable to sleep in the nude. Yes even in my Navy days I had to wear underpants on ship or in the barricks, that was due to regulations and certainly not preference. Yes it is certainly a choice that everybody makes.

    I sleep naked but I find it too drafty to walk around the house naked. I typically wear a t-shirt and some pyjama pants...though almost every morning when I live on my own I walk out of the shower naked. And if I get up in the middle of the night just to get a drink or something, I walk around naked.

    I don't always drink the milk right from the carton...but I'm sitting at about 75%, lol.

    You wanna see barbaric - watch me eat a pomegranate. When me and my buddy go at them it's like watching two cavemen consuming food. Probably due to the brooding facial structures we both have. Lol. I like being brutish - makes me feel like a man, hehe.

    I have a friend who seamlessly goes from using utensils to eating with his hands.

    That is brutish. Especailly for a gay man.

    I run around nekkid whenever I'm home. Fortunately, I usually remember I live on the ground floor and keep the blinds closed. I constantly belch and I'm always amused at the sound of my own flatulence though I try not to do it in public most of the time. If I really want to show my disdain for a retail establishment, I'll crop-dust it to the best of my ability before I leave. My gym undies are generally held together by the shorts I put on over them and good intentions. I guess if I was a real barbarian I'd have racing stripes in them as well, but I have a hard time committing to anything with stripes.

    Oh, and I beat another kid with a chicken at scout camp once. I think that counts as barbaric. I remember I really wished I had frozen cornish game hen. They are way easier to throw than chickens.

    I couldn't sleep if it wasn't for Saran Wrap.

    My partner has a habit of leaving the unused milk in his cereal bowl next to the kitchen sink. He doesn't pour it down the drain or rinse out the bowl. Drives me crazy sometimes. icon_mad.gif I am the kitchen cleaning person in our relationship. Don't even try to load my dishwasher because it will be wrong. So, is this his way of saying you clean the kitchen so you can pour out my milk and rinse my bowl?

    As for the nude thing. My partner would be nude all the time if he could. Me, I have to at least have on my briefs, t-shirt and in colder months, socks.

    In bed, im in the nuddy.
    around the house a very old worn, torn but oh some comfortable pair of shorts and old tshirts (I wouldn't be caught dead in public wearing them)

    I never drink out of the carton but I do put my still milky bowl on the draining board however I clean the kitchen.

    I find my own flatulences funny and a good belch always makes me feel good. I eat with both a knife and fork and my hands it just depends where I am and who I'm with.

    And I'm with others about that sock thing, its just freaky. Even worse are them shocks where each toe has its own little sock, I can't have them in the house, there just night mare worthy stuff and I can't let them touch me *shudders*

    icon_eek.gif well, thats one way of introducing my self to the forum!

    I cannot sleep without socks on. Something about it - I hate my feet (although they are very efficient at carting me from here to there) so I wear socks all the time, except in the shower. I usually sleep in at least my boxer briefs. Given that I have no one in my life and it's pretty cold here in winters, I wear a tshirt to bed as well. On really cold nights, I'll wear my lounge pants as well.

    I don't drink out of the carton - haven't since my 20s.

    I always rinse my dishes when I'm done with them and will do dishes once a day - it's just me so they rarely pile up.

    my boy generally wears at least a t-shirt and comfy pants or shorts around my place. I am usually in a pair of jeans or gym pants, but I would be fine with either of us running around sans clothes. when he sleeps alone at his place he always wears boxer briefs to bed, but when we're together and I slip into bed naked he generally follows suit icon_biggrin.gif I'd say on average I do run around without clothes more than he does, but I do enjoy removing whatever he's got on...I also kinda think the more "barbarian" the better so long as everybody is comfortable icon_wink.gif
