I'm a big fan when CFNM is more platonic and the sexual tension is less apparent. Something casual that is seemingly innocent.

I never liked to associate CFNM with femdom or embarrassment. If anything I think of CFNM as somewhat of an alpha-male situation. A man with the highest of confidence and lack of care to be able to go naked without any consequences to me is a very attractive feature.

Hey blaze3264,
I totally agree. I have had several of those and they turned out to be amazing fun over time. All but one were girls from my cycling team. Our cycling kits are skintight and the Polyester/Lycra fabric becomes even more see-through when sweaty and wet, depending on the color.

And many times when we ride with the girls we get changed, shower and pee in front of eachother; so it lends itself to very liberal openness and we become friends as we're cycling hard up mountains and long 100-mile rides with a lot of trash talk but also us stronger male riders dropping back and helping / drafting for the female riders.

I promise to write more details, specifically about one or two of my platonic female cycling buddies when I have more time.

What you are talking about sounds like NFNM or naturist activities surely?

Sorry for the confusion. I was only trying to explain how we all became platonic friends and used to seeing each other in different types of situations, as context before writing more when I have time.

One person naked (male??) and another clothed (female). that is by definition a power relationship.
Two persons naked describes nudism.

When I am naked with clothed females in a consensual situation, it is exactly where I want to be. I feel empowered.

I find it even better when the female(s) involved feel empowered too.

I agree. Clothed doesn't always have to indicate power. I think most consentual cfnm situations are about being equal and free.

I've pondered this scenario for years. The challenge I've always had is that people have differing definition of the word "platonic". And whenever someone says "Well, to me the word means...yadda yadda", that only confuses the situation because individuals are wrongfully using words if they solely rely upon their own perception as to the meaning of that word.

If one reads the various definitions, the term "platonic" , which is derived by teachings of Plato (although he never used that term) is not related to the word "casual" in any manner. They have entirely different meanings.

If one ascribes to the truest meaning of "platonic love", then there also is a dissociation of those feeling with the other's gender, ergo, platonic should not be associated with "CFNM" as the latter establishes a gender relationship. As it is defined, in platonic love carnal desires of the body are replaced with the "truest" form of love, and that is love of the soul. So effectively, the term "platonic" is more closely aligned with the term "spiritual" as opposed to "casual".

Merriam-Webster's Definition of Platonic

But like any word, over time people begin to use it in contexts of which the creator never envisioned, and the masses then redefine that term. I've seen this happen to "CFNM" as each person that finds interest in it also attempt to redefine it to what they want it to be absent any reference to etymology or how and why it was created.

So we now see the term "platonic" applied to relationships that are void of romance and sex, generally meaning that if a guy has a platonic relationship with a female it can be described best as "just friends" or "the friend zone". And that's okay. My only concern about usage of words is when two people have differing ideas about what it means, yet each doesn't realize the other is talking about something different.

When I coined the term "CFNM", it was never meant to be a subset BDSM, although I would say enjoyment of "humiliation" is a subset of BDSM. But those into BDSM and humiliation will argue vehemently that CFNM is indeed a subset of BDSM. The truth is the reverse...BDSM is just one manner of enjoyment of CFNM because of the power exchange dynamic. But there are others as noted above.

But because of the constant confusion brought on by so many wanting to own the definition of things, I created this web page to set it all straight, as I'm the only one that has a right to claim a greater understanding of the term "CFNM" as I created it:

I love it when I am naked for no apparent reason. Not to be looked at or teased or anything, I am just naked while watching TV and she isn't or I am serving dinner and naked etc.

I love casual CFNM.

Something like this would be awesome http://mrstiff.com/movie/naked-chess-cf ... -a-2195541
