I can't remember ever having seen it in a hostel, and I certainly wouldn't go down that route, but I wouldn't mind someone else in the room doing it. Of course hostel beds can be kind of dirty, so hygenically speaking you might want to think it through...

Apparently being in the same room naked with another of the same sex is illegal in some countries.
I read that this is the case in Iran. I read it in the Iranian constitution before I went there so I didnt risk earning 50 lashes(as far as I remember it is 50).
One time I was naked in a shared bathroom. An Iranian woman was hammering on the door(I had locked the main door to the showers and toilets) to come in. I told her there is no way I am letting her in because that is homosexuality by Iranian law and I insist on respecting Iranian laws and customs. She kept insisting for around 5 minutes that I let her in and I kept insisting on respecting her customs by not letting her come in.

No James. I cant hear the things u are hearing. We can talk because the internet is connecting us but that does not mean I can hear and see all the things u can. ;)

thanks for your answers. and it's nice to see that there's a lot of open mind people that don't see nudity as a sin or don't put nudity in a sacred position.
I don't want to banalize nudism. just seeing it with a relaxed point of view.
it's sux that lots of people cares about it and also have a lot of prejudice.
bye

nudity is not sin but it can induce a person to commit sin

Looking at the Kama Sutra, the Sacred Position does seem to require one to dislocate their shoulders and hips, then tie themselves in a proverbial knot. The hostel patrons may not really want to see that. Then again, they may all just take pictures...

I do agree with Sam about the cleanliness of the linens but whatever floats your boat. If you are comfortable being nude, it's certainly not going to bother me. But then again, I'll be staying at the hotel across the street because I don't do hostels. Just leave the shades on the windows open as I'll have my camera ready for when you try out that Sacred Position.

What about u get a picture of Hein and Sander in the sacred position.
I think those two should be TPs mascots.
