Over the last couple months, my best friend and I have been planning to see that play Equus, with Daniel Radcliffe. For those who don't know, the show is infamous not only because of his talent, but because of his big naked scene. I knew this, but didn't realize how uncomfortable I was about it until now. And I can't take back the tickets since they are pretty expensive, and our parents practically bent over backwards to get them. And the scene is apparently short anyway.
My friends who know about my issue with this have been telling me to "get over it". My best friend said "You're going to have to get over the male anatomy", telling me he's not that bad. I even had another friend's mom tell me to "Sneak a peek while you can!" But it's a fact that he will be full on naked, and it's also a fact that if I did "sneak a peek", my mind would be haunted for more than just that day. Why is there something wrong with not wanting to see a naked male body? Once I do, I won't just think of him, but all other guys because I know what's under their clothes. Why is there something wrong with trying to keep the innocence of not knowing?!
