T his week you may have heard about the Utah lewdness law , which a judge refused to overturn in a judgment against a woman who removed her top in her own home while applying drywall, and was seen by her stepchildren doing it. What little research there is on the topic suggests fears around the harms of parental nudity are exaggerated. One UCLA study that followed families over a period of 18 years found no negative effects among adolescents who observed their parents naked regularly when they were between the ages three to six. One of the main benefits to seeing a parent naked is that a child gets to see what a normal, naked adult body looks like. By contrast, seeing women with stretch marks, pubic hair and lumpy parts gives children more realistic expectations. If they want to see what boobs look like, they will Google it. Some fear exposing a child to nudity will ruin them in some way, or at least embarrass them — but these concerns are unfounded. It also means that they have a better model for talking about sex in a healthy way.
Today, she is mainly remembered for a legend dating back at least to the 13th century, in which she rode naked—covered only in her long hair—through the streets of Coventry to gain a remission of the oppressive taxation that her husband, Leofric, imposed on his tenants. The name "Peeping Tom" for a voyeur originates from later versions of this legend, in which a man named Thomas watched her ride and was struck blind or dead. Godiva was the wife of Leofric , Earl of Mercia. They had nine children; one son was Aelfgar. Godiva's name occurs in charters and the Domesday survey , though the spelling varies. Since the name was a popular one, there are contemporaries of the same name. If she is the same Godiva who appears in the history of Ely Abbey , the Liber Eliensis , written at the end of the 12th century, then she was a widow when Leofric married her. Both Leofric and Godiva were generous benefactors to religious houses.
