7 Ways To Feel More Confident Naked

Being naked can be your most vulnerable state. If you feel uncomfortable in the nude, those insecurities can hinder your ability to fully enjoy or engage in sex or intimacy. If you don’t feel like a powerful woman when you’re in your birthday suit, it’s time to boost your confidence and enhance your sex life. Don’t change your body, change the way you feel about your body.

  1. Improve your posture. Improving your posture can do wonders for your body. Stand up straight and pop your booty out to instantly feel sexier and more powerful. It sounds silly, but it does actually work.
  2. Accessorize. Try adorning yourself with excessive jewelry to feel like a naked queen. Spring for some vajazzling if you’d like – your vagina deserves something sparkly! If this isn’t your style, do some grooming in the way that you feel most confident and it’ll do wonders for how sexy you feel, too.
  3. Pamper yourself. Get a tan, wax, pedicure, or anything that makes you feel pampered. You will look fresh and studies suggest that women who pamper themselves tend to have a more positive body image. A trip to the nail salon might be all you need to boost your ego in the bedroom.
  4. Set the mood. Lighting and music can have a huge impact on your mood. Hit the dimmer, light some candles, Marvin Gaye and get it on. If the mood is sexy, you will feel sexy.
  5. Look at other naked women. Pick up a book on the female form, hit a strip club, or watch sex online (preferably amateur). The majority of the sexy female images you see are of professional models or actresses. Exposing yourself to a wider variety of women will highlight the fact that women come in all shapes and sizes and “imperfections” are standard and nothing to feel bad or self-conscious about. Realizing that everybody looks imperfect naked should help you be less critical of your own body. It’s easier to accept yourself when you’re not trying to live up to unrealistic ideals.
  6. Channel your inner bad bitch. Even Beyoncé calls on her alter ego, Sasha Fierce, to feel intense and fearless. There’s a bad bitch in you somewhere, waiting to break out with all the confidence in the world. Feel free to give her a bad ass name too if that helps bring her out!
  7. Touch yourself. Just in case you needed another reason to masturbate, touching yourself is a great way to get acquainted with your sexual side. You are a sexual being, and that is reason enough to feel damn good being naked!
