Nudity and Jealousy (now rebloggable)

Was the fact that Amanda is naked in things a problem for you at the beginning of your relationship? Did you have to deal with your jealousy, or did you accept it as art and not feel that jealous twitching in your mind? Does it ever bother you still?

Before I had ever met Amanda, and long before we ever started dating, she’d sent me a bunch of photos she wanted me to write captions for, and she was naked in a third of them. So I’ve never known her as someone who wasn’t naked in photos and such for the world. I don’t get jealous about that. Mostly, as somebody with a proper English nudity taboo, I’m amazed and delighted that she’s not got that, any more than a three year old does.

(Being human, I am absolutely capable of getting myself jealous and upset about relationship issues. But the more certain I am that the foundations of the relationship are real and solid, and that I’m loved and that won’t change, the less the jealousy bothers me or is anything more than a momentary twinge.)
