A to Z Challenge Poetry

N is for Nudophobia #atozchallenge

There was a woman whose name was Jude
She was afraid of being in the nude
She’d jump in the tub
Look away and quickly scrub
For she thought her naked body was too rude

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Nudophobia is the fear of nudity

    This limerick is both funny and serious. Well, I guess these days so much importance is given to how we look that many of us develop body image complexes. But afraid of being nude? I’ve never heard of it. Your posts are interesting and informative 🙂

    Nice one. Never heard of this one but I guess so much importance is given to the way we look that many develop body complexes.

    Well, that phobia was certainly easy to figure out; however, didn’t know that one existed either! You keep surprising me on these newfound phobias I never knew existed! 😉 <3

    I am surprised she took a bath in the nude, rather than togs.

    Reminded me of that song “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny” for some reason.
    How can a person be scared of looking at their own nude body? Oh well, anything is possible, I guess.

    It’s great how you portray something so serious so well in so few words. Here’s hoping she didn’t have any large mirrors in her bathroom..
