Basically, this trope is for those characters that have a notably different definition of "private parts" than most of the audience.

* An episode of ''Series/NightCourt'' featured delegates from a vaguely South-Asian nation who had NoNudityTaboo. This trope comes into play when the ambassador gets the hots for Christine, and tells her he's been "dressing you with my eyes." At the end of the episode, she throws on her very cumbersome coat and scarf and says "have a ball," and he reacts with intense glee.

* In the ''Literature/ApprenticeAdept'' series, slaves on Proton are required to go naked at almost all times, and thus, for one slave to ''conceal'' their intimate regions from another is considered a racy act.

* The latest ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMenTellNoTales'' movie has a male character ecstatic at seeing a woman's ankles. Meanwhile, Jack is disappointed at not seeing more. Of course, having been with many women, he's presumably less impressed by ankles alone.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/StarCarrier'': It's not uncommon for holograms to be used in lieu of clothing at public events (presumably, nanoimplants control any leakage). In fact, it's equally acceptable for holographic uniforms to be used even in the military. Nudity is perfectly acceptable among friends, whether they want to have sex or not. The only people who feel weird about it are those born on the Periphery (former coastal cities that have been flooded by global warming and a ColonyDrop). They still cling to "outdated" ideas like monogamy.

* In ''Literature/WorldWar'', the [[TheReptilians Race]] wear no clothing (except in cold climates), but they are covered by intricate bodypaint from head to toe, which indicates their rank and position. The more intricate the pattern, the higher the rank. Naturally, bodypaint has to be reapplied daily (sometimes, more frequently). Fast-forward after the end of the hostilities, and the next generation of humans see nothing wrong with walking around in barely any clothing (sometimes, no clothing at all, females included), using bodypaint patterns as substitute. Naturally, the older generation finds this improper, but good luck telling teenagers that. In the final novel, the protagonists return to Earth in the 21st century and discover that there is now absolutely nothing wrong with a gameshow girl walking around with her breasts bare on live TV, while half the audience is likewise topless or completely nude (may or may not be covered in bodypaint).

* Reeves are a race of mercenaries and warriors in the ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' setting who are averse to anyone seeing their faces, including other reeves, keeping their faces hidden by helmets or veils. If anyone sees a reeve's face, the reeve becomes obsessed with finding and killing that person. (Although, enough dead reeves have been examined for their looks to be documented; they have four eyes, no hair, and pebbly skin.)

* The degree of cover that is the norm in Islamic countries varies widely by history, geography, and economics. There is a general call to modesty in the Koran, but what meets that criteria is not defined. Most Muslim nations meet this with the hijab, a covering for the neck and hair, but several nations and cultures are more relaxed, such as Jordan and the Tuareg. In the Ottoman and Persian Empires and for thousands of years before them, the higher a woman's status the more she covered herself; wearing a veil generally indicated that a woman was high class, and hiding the eyes from view could indicate nobility. Some of their successor nations, particularly in the Gulf, have taken this to an extreme in part to emphasize their recent economic rise, in part due to conservative movements that have increased influence since the latter half of the 1900s. What is considered indecent continues to vary - one recent innovation is the burkini, which covers the hair, hands, and legs and includes a skirt to allow for modesty at the beach and in competitive swimming.
** Other conservative religious groups also include modesty among their strictures, but often attach indecency only to female compliance. Orthodox Jewish women wear head coverings, which can include wigs, while Christian groups often don't restrict headwear, but do generally emphasize form obscuring dresses.
