| | Husband Showed Photo to Friends
I'm new here and would like some opinions. We're a happily married couple for nearly 40 years. My husband is 60, I'm eight years his junior. While on a camping trip with our grandsons (ages 2 and 4) last summer to a very isolated spot, my husband was taking the boys into the edge of the lake to bath them and himself. As they were about to enter the water, I decided to snap a photo of the three of them. It seemed like a nice moment of togetherness for them. They had all undressed and the photo is of all of their bare backsides. I never dreamed anyone but us would see it. While entertaining a few friends the other evening, My husband was showing photos on the computer to several of them. I had forgotten about the photo of him and the little ones, but after hearing some discussion about the photo collection I realized he had included it in the ones he had shown of our trip, among other things. It was viewed by men and women alike and afterward there was a comment or two about it that caused me to realize what had happened. Nobody objected to it, in fact some said it was a very nice family photo and one female friend referred to it as "cute". There was one joke about "seeing a few buns" and one man said he had "been mooned". My issue is that I am not comfortable with my female friends seeing my husband without any clothes on. I know it's only "from the back" but still he is shown completely naked. He says there's nothing wrong with a picture of an older man's bottom in an innocent setting. Am I making something out of nothing? Am I the only one who feels this way? Please respond with some opinions here.
