Be at peace
by: Been there, done that.

It's perfectly fine to poop without you're clothes. I did it from 2 years old to about 10. I grew out of it eventually.

I remember that I messed on my clothes when I was younger and decided that to aid this problem, clothes needed to be out of the equation when I went.

Think back to when you were younger, did something happen that cause you to pick up this habit?

Think about it now and talk to your wife! She will love you in clothes or nudity.

What I did was I tried to add clothes on one piece at a time when I went to be bathroom. Try to keep your underwear around your ankles and when you get comfortable with that, keep a shirt on. No one is pressuring you to get this done quickly, your bathroom time is private.
But practice what I've mentioned before by wearing one article of clothing and add on over time.

Best of luck!

mixed reviews
by: Observant Mom

My younger son had to take all his clothes off to poop since he was old enough to do it without supervision. I don't believe any of the other guys in my household do this. I did not know anyone else did that until two of my coworkers said some of their sons/guys do this too. It seems to depend on individual preference. If it makes it easier for them, I don't have a problem with it.

Seriously, feels great
by: Anonymous

When I know I'm going to be in the bathroom for the extended timespan of 30 min., this happens. Constipation, folks. It is a horrible thing to feel. Tearing you apart from the inside, making you feel like you are about to explode. The clothes I am wearing didn't help matters, so I just take em off~

20- female
I have done this since I was in preschool. At first it was just because I didn't want any fecal matter getting on me but as I got older I did it because it makes it easier to go. I also have to have my hair up.

just went while typing this
by: Amilah

I'm a female and I cannot go unless I'm naked at least from the bottom half down. If I have a dress on or more than one layer on top, it has to come off as well. It's weird because I remember a girl did this in boot camp when I was 16 and I thought I was weird. She was older than me though. I can't remember when I started doing it but now o can't go fully clothed. I feel restricted somehow even though I'm sure my range of motion wouldn't be that severely impacted with the clothes. I've met several other females who are the same.

Ive only been doing this recently, and now i cant poop without doing this. I guess i just set my mind into doing it. Also i was always worried about it dropping onto my clothes even though i had a direct drop.

Sometimes (80% of the time) I'm on the toilet and try to go poop but nothing comes out but the minute I take clothing off like my t shirt or anything top half it instantly comes out, it's abit uncomfortable like when I'm at work or in any public place but gotten used to it and doesn't cause any major problems, i guess i just gotta play the cards I'm dealt. p.s been happening since I was about 5 years old.

This is how I always go!
by: Anonymous

I have been doing this since a child. This seems to be something that guys comment on more than women. Idk. I feel free and clear to contort or adjust to any position that helps me go. I also appreciate it when I'm sweating or hot. It is hard for some people to go when they are really hot and sweaty. It is also much easier for me to use my Squatty Potty without clothes on. Maybe it has to do with instinct from being in the wild. Idk. I love doing it when I'm sick too. Sorry for the rambling...

Perfectly normal
by: Anonymous

I usually only do it when I'm feeling sick. I guess it is just a comfort thing. And maybe because you can open your legs a little more. Who knows, but a lot of people do it.

toilet stripping
by: King Of The Throne

Well since i was younger i didn't like going to the toilets in unfamiliar places and can't concentrate when i think someone might hear me doing my thing in there.

The stripping started on a Burning summer day that made me sweat in my rightful throne when doing it, i was wearing just a wife beater and it was soaked through. When i took it of it was glorious! The sweat glands worked without restrictions and cooled my body tempature.

i am now 19 and first started stripping when i was 17...

Not abnormal
by: Anonymous

I think i would sum this up as a "quirk" - but certainly not abnormal from the sheer number of just the people responding to this one question on this one page on all of the internet! Be free and do what feels right.

So werid
by: AnonymousF

I have the same problem! But it's really specific. Whenever I have intense nausea in my intestinal region (meaning I'm probably gonna have diarrhea) I have this very intense tendency to take off all of my clothes. All of them. Including my bra sometimes. I actually stumbled across this page to see if I was alone and thankfully I am not. I'm 18 years old and I've been doing this since I was maybe 5. I wonder if it has to do with increasing body heat or something but I know it's definitely not a normal thing to do.

Not completely normal
by: Anonymous

Given that so many people here are commenting on this, and how glad they are that they are not alone, I think the use of the term "normal" above is not really right. Please understand that this is abnormal. I saw someone at work do this today and it was shocking. Not that I care or judge individuals that do this, but it is not normal, and it draws attention since most feet and ankles can be seen by neighboring toilet users. It may be a preference, it may be a disorder, maybe both, but it's certainly not normal. And people that do this for whatever reason should know that others will notice, some will blow it off, and as it goes with all abnormalities, some will ridicule when they see it. It's reality in this world. So one must deal with it, conceal it, accept it, or attempt to change it. Or, I suppose, one could also just say "it's normal" and ignore it. :-)

Me too
by: Stephen

i am almost 50 and still do this, but not always. There are number of factors. Never in a public or work restroom, but then I try to avoid them if at all possible. Usually, not if it's quick. Only the longer or crampy # 2s require clothes removal.

The best way I can explain it, is that the clothes are uncomfortable or annoying. Even things like watches and rings. I wouldn't say I am stripping to get comfortable, but instead, relieving the discomfort of having the clothes on.

Also, like others, I was on the throne wondering if others did it as well, because one of my son also does it, and started without knowing that I did it, so it wasn't a learned behavior and I was curious if it was hereditary.

Mine Too!!!
by: Anonymous

Wow. So thankful to find that this is just a normal part of what people prefer to do in the bathroom when #2'ing. My son is 8 and also needs to completely change into new underwear and pants afterwards. I've always thought that is so strange. AND he WILL NOT go #2 unless in hotel or at home. Ha! I think I vaguely remember doing this as a small child too but have learned to "speed things up" by leaving my clothes on these days. :)

Almost 10 years ago a co-worker told me she had the type of diarrhea that makes u strip naked on the toilet. I laughed so hard because I thought it was just me. Its only with diarrhea though like when youre sick. It seems to me to be a natural instinct.

I am 32 yrs old and i do it too.
by: Anonymous

I have always been that way too. To this very day I still feel the need to strips off all my clothes including socks, watch, silver chain, caps. Just whatever is on me has to come off before I do the #2. I do it at home and in public restrooms, it doesn't matter where. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. It is perfectly normal for anyone at any age. It's just that most people don't experience this. Some guy from an earlier comment said he grew out of it. Well, this isn't something your suppose to grow out of. All it is, is what other people said. It's simply a matter of feeling comfortable when you do the #2. Some people feel comfortable enough with their clothes on while going #2 and some people don't feel comfortable with their clothes on while going #2. That is all it is people. So moms, dads, kids, adults, stop worrying. It is perfectly natural for the smaller population of people that do this. Have a wonderful day.

I did not know a lot of people go through this. My son is 5 years old and he undresses from head to toe and i didn't understand. His explanation was he didn't want to poop on his clothes but really? Your socks are all the way on your feet!!! Then if we are home he will not put back on the same clothes, he always wants to change. It's outrageous!!! Someone help me.......

No clothes!
by: Anonymous

Oh my gosh, I had no idea other kids did this! My son is 12 and STILL strips his clothes off for #2, mostly at home. But he will even hold it so he can come home to strip, and he's had lots of constipation problems. He's old enough to finally able to explain "why"... He says because sometimes the water splashes onto him and he doesn't want his clothes to get the toilet water on them. I think its also the feel of splashing on him as well.

No Clothes
by: Anonymous

Have to laugh, I thought my son was the only one! Every times he goes to the toilet he strips off, spends at least 5 minutes on there most times it's about 10. I recently found out he does this at school also. Most days as soon as he gets home he takes all his clothes off too. He won't wear PJ's in bed either. He's 5 I'm hoping he will grow out of it

my son does the same thing but it has now progressed into I need to get into the bathtub after a poop. I have no idea why he also hates tags, certain pants, and always is missing socks no matter where we are he takes off his shoes and socks.

I used to do this..
by: Anonymous

As a child I did this, I remember my poor mom waiting for me and getting frustrated that I did this when we had to leave to go somewhere. I know I was frequently constipated as a child and if I took my clothes off to potty it helped. I think I would get cold and it was easier to poop. It sounds silly to me now. I have not done that since I was probably 6. Anyway, I outgrew it! Hope this comment helps a bit.

had the same issue
by: Anonymous

my son is 4 1/2. when he was first potty training (extremely hard btw) he used to strip off his pants and underwear every single time. he has told me recently that his pants are too heavy to hold up while he is sitting. a sensory issue i am told. as he is learning to cope with sensory issues this has gotten better. he does not strip down very often now. hope this helps.

my daughter does the same thing - I have insisted that when we are other places she must keep her clothes on, but at home she strips down - not quite sure why, I might ask her next time :)

taking his clothes off when going to bathroom
by: Sandee

our son does that also, no mater where he is he always takes his clothes off to use the bathroom. I have never heard of another child doing this. it also takes him awhile to go to the bathroom, sometimes 15 or more minutes.He also will rush home to take his underwear off the less clothes the better and he wants to where the same shorts and shirts all week.
