This article presents research focused on the experience of nudity/body as an intimate space of an individual. It also considers the influence of gender in situations such as an in-depth interview when a female researcher works with a male informant while bodily intimacy is in the center of exploration. In this paper the author makes an attempt to find answers to the following questions: How/if does the gender of researcher and informant influence the interview? Do males participating in research have any objections regarding intimate explorations in the presence of a female researcher? Do they lie during such conversation and do they lie less often when interviewed by the same sex researcher? Can a female conduct a reliable, focused on intimacy interview with a male? Presented research provides answers to these questions.
