Hi, guys —

  • I'm 15 years-old and just wanted to know if it is okay to sleep naked?

I'm just alone in my own room and I'm not doing anything wrong.

Hi, David —

I think it's a valid question for an adolescent to ask.

There is nothing wrong with sleeping naked per se. However, a principle we must always keep in mind is what we call avoiding all occasions of sin.

In other words, avoiding situations which might inch us closer to sin or make it more difficult to avoid, for example, the sin of masturbation. If your motivation for sleeping naked is because you find it sexually arousing or it makes you feel studly, thus making it more likely you'll masturbate (which is a misuse of your sexual organs, which are meant for total self-giving to your future wife), then that would be wrong.
