I am ashamed of my naked body, but it's only recently that I've become consciously aware of it. This shame has nothing to do with the shape of my body or how attractive I think I am. I am actually content with my looks and my shape. It's more a disgust at nakedness, particularly when being intimate with someone.

Genesis tells us about the moment humans first "realized" they were naked, quickly followed by the moment they were first ashamed of being naked -- but it doesn't explain why humans were ashamed. Animals are naked albeit furry , and for tens of thousands of years, so were human beings. So what changed -- and if we wanted to, could we change back, and unlearn our shame? Recently, some British researchers attempted to find out. Their theory is that the shame of being naked was codified in most human societies as a way of protecting mating pairs.
