My parents have had the same photograph hanging in their bathroom since I was a little kid. It’s of the backside of a nude young woman lying beside a lake. I never thought much about the picture but I do recall having ‘curious’ feeling about it in my early teens. I moved out years ago but I still see the picture every time I visit my parents. On a recent visit, my girlfriend used the bathroom and a when she came out said ‘That’s a beautiful picture of your mom in there. How old was she when it was taken?’ At first I had no idea what she was talking about but then I realized she was referring to the photo. I had never been told it was my mom and had never thought to ask. My girlfriend couldn’t believe I was so clueless about and even identified the lake as a place we have taken family trips to my whole life. I asked my parents about this and they confirmed what I had never figured out. Now I feel so weird about the whole thing. Do most people have nude photos of themselves hanging in their homes for their kids and other people to see? Is it ok for me to ask my parents to take the photo down? – Picture Problem
