You’ve Upgraded From The Underwear Dream

, , , | Friendly | July 16, 2017

(We’re a group of four girls, all close friends, and are having a sleepover in my friend’s tiny apartment. It’s pretty much one bedroom with a kitchenette, a tiny bathroom, and even tinier hallway. With four of us there it’s pretty crowded, but we make do. After some hours of drinking and silly games, one friend has already fallen asleep on the couch while the rest of us talk for a while. We finally decide to go to bed and just let our friend sleep through it since she seems comfortable enough. Unfortunately, she wakes up just as we’re all changing, in the main room, since there are no other options.)

Friend: “Wha… oh, god. Why are you all naked? Is this one of those weird dreams?” *gets a shocked look on her face* “Am I naked, too? Please tell me I’m not!”

    It’s rude not to join in with naked-happy-fun time.

    • Kamikaze Blitz

      It would have been the perfect time for her friends to fake sexy shenanigans. The look of horror/confusion would be priceless.

      • Deadpool

        Or actual sexy shenanigans. Get me a copy of the video and I’ll find a price for it.

  • Matt Westwood

    My understanding of the German culture is that it is more accepting of nakedness than many other cultures. This of course could not have happened in the US because nakedness is unheard of there, and there is no way that girls would end up naked in each other’s company. Although “naked” in the US tends to mean “dressed only in underwear or swimming-costume”.

    • Jackie Fauxe

      Although I’m sure there are exceptions, “naked” for us most always means without any clothes at all. Maybe you’re thinking of “nearly naked” which might be used when someone only dressed in underwear? As for swimwear, one would have to be incredibly prudish would describe that as “nearly naked”, and I can’t currently recall anyone ever using it that way, although I’m sure it’s happened.

      • Matt Westwood

        American TV all the time.

        • therapod

          Right, because TV is so accurate at representing real life.

          • Asiyd

            Depending on the state, it is. In Texas… it’s considered indecent for a girl to show her shoulders, her stomach, or too much leg depending on where she lives. I can’t tell you the level of shock I went through when I first saw my little cousin (at 18) wearing a belly shirt… things are changing, but when I was 18, that would have been severely frowned upon… and that was only 10 years ago.

          • Jules

            I mean, I live in Texas and I see girls walking around in tank tops and short shorts all the time. It gets hot. I’d agree with you on the stomach though, for the most part. It’s against school dress code to show shoulders and thigh, sure. But in public in the summer? Nobody looks twice if you’ve got a tank top or short shorts on. I mean booty shorts with your cheeks poking out, sure you’ll get dirty looks. But just two or three inches longer and It’s not usually an issue.

          • Asiyd

            Yea, but it’s definitely been a new development, at least from what I’ve seen! I also noticed that I see it more near Central Texas or Houston than I do anywhere else… but then again if I actually went to East Texas and saw someone in a belly shirt, I think I’d have a heart attack from shock! XD

            I may just spend too much time in East Texas visiting my grandmother, though… so that may be part of it ahaha!

            Texas is a strange bird…

          • Jules

            No you make a good point. I couldn’t have gotten away with what they wear now when I was younger. My mom wouldn’t even let me wear anything form fitting in middle school. And I do live in the DFW area which is a whole different culture than east and west Texas, which are all also very different from South Texas!

          • Asiyd

            Oh lord, I know Dallas through my uncle and the fact that sometimes East Texas claims Dallas even though Dallas is noooot east texas. Dallas has dang good food!

          • Jules

            Absolutely, Dallas is definitely North/Central Texas! Great food though, you’re right. I’m about a 45 minute drive from Dallas and it’s a great place to go out! The Dallas Museum of art is awesome, and the Nasher Sculpture Gardens. Actually the Fort Worth Modern is pretty good too. And the Perot science Museum in Dallas is amazing.

          • Asiyd

            Do they have a Natural Science museum? I’d have to check that and the Perot Science museum the next time I’m up there.

          • Jules

            The Perot full name is actually “The Perot Museum of Nature and Science” – they’ve got both! There’s exhibits on anatomy, sports, ecosystems, sound, gems and minerals, natural disasters, energy, the solar system, evolution, and birds. There are also temporary exhibits, just looked it up and the current one is about Maya culture. When I went the temporary exhibit was a Sherlock Holmes one and it was SO cool. Some of the other past temporary exhibits have been about animals, recycling, dinosaurs, and gems. It’s really a very cool museum. Also a children’s exhibit. If you’re into plants the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is also absolutely beautiful.

          • Asiyd

            Excellent, I’ll remember this next time I’m up there! I absolutely love Natural Science museums… have yet to find one as good as the Houston Museum of Natural Science since I moved away!

          • Jules

            Yes, absolutely worth checking out!

    • It’s also becoming dependent on the generation. In the 70’s here in Norway, nudity in the wardrobe at school was the norm. Nowadays, the young are so body-conscious, they don’t want to see any kind of undress (which is a shame, because seeing all kinds of bodies helps you get over being self-conscious).

    • Kitty

      I’m wondering about that last part, actually. Are these girls honestly nude-to-birthday-suit naked or still wearing undies and bras? Cause the former just makes me wonder does NOBODY wear underwear when going to bed? (Am I really so weird for having undies on? I hate feeling naked… figuratively and literally) Or is the friend so out of it that undies and bras count as naked? In which case, why bother?

      • I am Jenn

        I remember the first time I read “The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweilier” when the protagonist mentions hating that moment of taking off the pajamas and not having underwear on…I was so confused. We were reading it in school and I had to ask, and apparently, in some cultures, you don’t wear underwear under your pajamas….that was the first I’d heard of it, and, until now, the last. I’m assuming that’s what’s happening here, is the women are transitioning from clothing to pajamas, and that means getting naked in between?

      • I’m with you. I can’t imagine not having underwear under my pajamas, whatever form those may take. I even go so far as to wear a sports bra under my shirt.

      • Katrin Schirmer

        i wear underwear and socks to bed usually. anything less feels odd to me, probably for the same reason i want my covers to have some weight to them.

    • Jules

      Honestly it depends on your company in the US. It’s truly not unusual for girls, especially college-age and younger, to change in front of each other. This is very common at sleepovers when the girls know each other well. If you’re a new friend you’ll probably go in the other room. But I’ve had acquaintances strip down to just undies to change shirts and pants in front of me. And my sister and her close friends (college aged) all strip down completely nude and change in front of me and each other all the time.

      Men in the US on the other hand… unless your in a locker room… hyper masculinity culture says you don’t want the other bros to think you’re gay or something! I’m sure some groups of men change in front of each other outside of the locker room, but it’s my understanding that it’s not as common or comfortably accepted as with females. Similarly to how it’s totally normal for women and girls to share a bed at sleepovers, but for men and boys that’s seen as weird.

      I think the misunderstanding comes from the fact that nudity is not allowed on most American TV. So, no, there will not be any nudity depicted and if there is “nudity” it’s underwear.

    • ValleyLeada

      Not necessarily. My friends and I (we live in the US) are comfortable hanging out in just our bras and underwear with each other, especially if the weather is really hot.

      • Matt Westwood

        See what I mean? “Bras and underwear” seems to mean “naked” nowadays.

        • ValleyLeada

          True. Although I can’t imagine the benefit of being totally naked in front of people. Save that for the shower, your bedroom, and your partner!

          • Servali

            And sauna!

          • ValleyLeada

            True!

          • Matt Westwood

            ” I can’t imagine the benefit of being totally naked in front of people.” Oooooh, I can!

          • ValleyLeada

            What would that be? And s*x doesn’t count because that falls under the category of “with your partner.” Personally the idea of being seen totally naked in front of stranger(s) is horrifying, not least because I’m female and rape is so common.

        • Katrin Schirmer

          not in my house. i run around my house completely naked all the time, and my best friend will strip down when shes here if shes too hot or otherwise uncomfortable in what shes wearing,

          • Matt Westwood

            I would do, but I have a glass front door, so if I have to go downstairs I put a pair of trousers on.

          • Katrin Schirmer

            i only have to worry about the back door, and our back yard is fenced so if someone is back there without permission i’m going to be rather angry and have some questions for them. sometimes the neighbor’s kid mows the grass for us, but i can tell if hes doing that before i even go downstairs.

    • Bryan Morriss

      I don’t know where you’re at, but I’ve never known girls who were uncomfortable getting completely naked with their female friends unless they were just uncomfortable with their bodies totally. It’s the guys who have problems being naked around each other and will automatically call anyone who takes off more than their shirt gay and make fun of them until they put their clothes back on.

      • Dave Harmon

        In this case I suspect it was the “sudden” transition. That is, when she when to sleep everything was normal (if drunken), and then she was waking up and suddenly everyone was naked.

  • Jackie Fauxe

    Was the bathroom really that tiny that no one could change in it? I mean, there’s nothing wrong with changing as a group, but you specifically said there were “no other options”, and I’ve never seen a bathroom in a tiny apartment not having without room to stand; you have to have a place to put your feet in front of toilet, right? And there’s always the shower/tub.

    I can totally see it not being practical or comfortable to change in the bathroom, but the thought of it not even being an option surprises me. I believe you, but I’m just struggling to picture it.

    • Deadpool

      Whereas I’m enjoying picturing it.

      • Matt Westwood

        A roomful of naked women? Ugh!

        • Katrin Schirmer

          you can picture a room full of naked men if you prefer.

          • strangeangel24601

            I know I would.

          • Matt Westwood

            Yum.

      • Cathrope

        I agree with Deadpool.

    • Kathy B

      Was coming here to say this. I would have suggested just taking turns changing in the bathroom.

      • Jules

        Why though when you can all change at once? If your comfortable with it, who cares if you change in front of your friends.

    • Maybeth80

      My old place was so tiny that the bathroom door doubled as the kitchen wall. And the bathroom itself was basically a square. Half the square was the tub. The sink and toilet were the other half of the square with hardly any space between them. There was a slight alcove where the toilet sat (just deep enough for the toilet tank). The total floor space between all three was just enough to place down a small bath mat. Standing in there with the door closed (we usually just left it open) there was just enough space to turn around. Trying to change in there would have meant knocking into things or standing in the tub. So yes, I can believe that the bathroom wasn’t an option.

      • Jackie Fauxe

        Thank you for painting that picture!

      • Li

        Yep, one of my apartments was like that. I got terrible flu one time while living there and there wasn’t enough room on the floor to kneel to puke. It was horrid.

      • Dave Harmon

        My sister once lived in a “tenement apartment”. The toilet was in a closet-sized space what I had trouble fitting into, and I’m not a big guy. The bathtub was in the kitchen.

        You may ask, why would she live in a place like that? Because it was rent-controlled, in New York City. That is, its rent was frozen (or nearly so) at a value closer to the 1930s when it was built, than to the time she was living there. That apartment got passed between a series of friends and relatives, never ever advertised in a rent ad.

    • Rob Tonka

      “the thought of it not even being an option surprises me. I believe you, but I’m just struggling to picture it.”

      I don’t believe them. I think they just wanted to get nekkid together.

  • Phil Adler

    This is not the dream you’re looking for.

  • Sara van der Merwe

    “Am I naked?”

    Yes, now shut up and go back to sleep.

  • Ares Zax

    “No no, you just woke up in time for the REAL fun games.” 😉

  • BMK

    Sleepovers in tiny houses aren’t fun, particularly when there’s a large number of people. I was at one with thirteen other girls once, though I had no problems…because I was the terror. Slapped someone in the face while she slept so many times that she got up and moved, and then I started rolling from one end of the room to the other, in my sleep, plowing over every girl between me and the wall. I can’t remember what I was dreaming about, but I think I was having a downhill rolling race with a werewolf. All I remember is waking up confused as to why I was all the way on the other end of the room with a lot of angry girls shouting at me.

    The next time we had a large sleepover they all forced me to sleep by myself in the bathtub. I got woken up so many times by the flushing toilet it wasn’t funny…

    • Jules

      On a church trip once we all slept in another church’s classroom, sleeping bags filling up most of the room. Somehow I woke up on the opposite side of the room than I fell asleep on. I don’t know how I got over or through all the other girls without apparently waking them up, but I did.

      My sister could be the terror however in an empty room. We shared a room as kids, just the two of us. I had the bottom trundle because she was the younger sister and apparently afraid of spiders under the bed. I got punched, kicked, rolled onto, had whatever toy she was sleeping with thrown on me… Nobody likes to share beds with her at sleepovers because she’s still a kicker in her 20s.

      • BMK

        No one will share a bed with my sister after the incident where she just randomly kicked someone off and stole their pillow, all while asleep.

        I’ve also done church sleepovers, but I didn’t get any sleep on those. There was one where they had six three-liter bottles of soda…I drank an entire one by myself. My resulting sugar/caffeine high could probably be harnessed to power a small village in the Himalayas. Thankfully we had the church’s gym to ourselves so I could run around like a crazy daisy all night while everyone who wanted to sleep was safe in the other room, far away from me and my friend, the cookie monster who ate two packages of Chips Ahoy and one package of Oreos.

        • Jules

          Once we slept in the gym and the kids who, like you, were sugared up and staying up all night decided to play basketball around those of us who were sleeping!

  • Katrin Schirmer

    see if those were my friends, i wouldn’t bat an eye. i’d probably just roll over and go back to sleep instead of freaking out.

  • yeahright1965

    Pics or it didn’t happen….;-)
