Good grief. Talk about beating a subject to death! Kidding... I just want to say that I think erections are similar to bulging bicep muscles on someone who's just finished lifting weights. Would anyone be offended by them? Hardly. It is amusing that so much discussion has taken place, and will take place in the future, about such a non-issue. The reason people 'think' they might be offended by the sight of an erect male appendage is because they are unaccustomed to seeing them. Nothing more, nothing less. And as far as women are concerned, I think it is possible to tell when they are aroused as well. It may be more difficult, and perhaps we shouldn't be examining each other so closely, but it is possible if you know the 'signs' (especially for people who go hairless, a.k.a. 'smoothies'). - - - The only people we *might* have to teach about acceptable behavior when aroused is children and teens because they simply may not have a frame of reference to judge what is acceptable and unacceptable by. Hormones are a powerful 'drug' and can cause people to misjudge situations and innocently behave inappropriately. That's the stickler. ~ Happy times to all. ~ D.C.
Now I am more open-minded about having an erection in public. And now I am having a lot fewer erections, for any reason. Is this why men get into leather and rough stuff? The gland just doesn't act up much as age ticks on, so they try things to create memorable performances.
I still find naturism stimulating, even if the gland isn't ever erect. I feel strong, have plenty of body heat even on cool days, feel gregarious, all positive attributes. The urge to be nude can get twisted, can push one into exhibition with dangerous consequences.
Better to find healthy outlets, like this group.
My gland is "cut", so I never have your "problem". Talk to the uncut guys about it. Sounds like a real disadvantage. I think your advantage is the sensitivity, which I mostly lost in the cutting.
I have had many erections when i've been on nudist beaches. It usually happens involuntarily, when i'm either laying back watching people go by or most often if i'm talking face to face with a woman i find attractive. I think most women enjoy having that effect on a guy and of course when they look down to "admire" the erection they have helped "stimulate" in your mind it only heightens my state of arousal. I have had loads of pics taken by women in various stages of arousal in public. As has already been said it is natural as long as it's not caused by openly masturbating in public.
I have to agree with you that being an unpaid member can be frustrating. Waiting for paid members to e-mail and for unpaid members to send a wink is frustrating. The solution is, of course, to join and hope that there are some real nudists who want to chat on this site. I have sent some winks out but received no winks in reply so I am still wondering how many really want to have 'normal' chats here??
Thank you for the helpful response. When I first joined this site, I immediately started to read many of the posts and there seemed to be many who thought that this site was full of non nudists. I also did perform a search and yes there are non nudist profiles about. However, after contributing to the forum topics in the short time that I have been here I have found what seems to be a core group of active people who post and are interested in chatting about a wide variety of topics. I only wish that this site was better policed and some safeguards were used to ensure that it remains mainly a nudist site. Your response is very encouraging and I thank you for posting it.
I believe most of us are paid members.
I have gotten appropriate responses, enough to keep me busy answering, when I choose to sit and talk/type.
What's so great about this group is this: you don't have to pay. If you are patient, some paid members will reply. You hands are tied until they do. I decided to pay, because I didn't care for the frustration. Now that I have a bunch of direct e-mail addresses, I could easily drop my paid membership.
Since we have a good active topic thread going here now I was just wondering if any here are paid members? I am new to this site and was not sure if there were any nudists here hence why I have not joined or posted a photo. I am wondering what others here think of this site? It would be nice to chat with others and share thoughs and experiences about nudism and other topics but just want to be sure that there are others here who also looking for the same??
There are so many circustances surrounding erections and everyone has different experiences here. For a guy to be walking or laying out and to just get an erection is one thing. However, one Summer there was a huge problem on one of the nudist beaches in Southern California. Guys would find women, sit next to or near them, and then start wanking off to get an erection. This is totally wrong and is abusive and demeaning towards woman. The end result was that many women were driven off the beach by these idiot men who need to grow up and get a life. Finally, enough women complained and tickets were issued to end this problem.
My girlfriend said that she likes my member erect much more than flacid and cannot see nothing wrong when I get an erection because of other woman. We were walking down the seaside this year and I had some erections, we both liked it.
I must say it turns me on when I get an erection in front of passing by woman during the walk. I was embarrassed in the beginning but now I do not try to stop growing an erection or hide it. I really enjoy it!
After women reactions I think that most of them also like to see an erection. I did not receive any negative responses, most of the women seeing my erection smiled to me.
Kasia....... There are many nice nudist beaches on the Baltic as well as some secluded 'unofficial' ones so you will have many places to go to be nude on a beach this upcomming Summer too! It is great to hear that you enjoy it and I hope that you will continue to practice outdoor nudism when the warmer weather returns.
Even on a nudist beach, people like to see and admire others who are fit and in good physical shape. Guys can and do get erections when they see an attractive woman on a beach. Some are better hiding it then others. From my experiences women who check out guys on the beach tend to be much more discrete then guys who check out women. Many women won't admit it, but they do like to see fit and attractive men as much as men admire fit and attractive women.
When erections happen by guys who are asleep in the sun, lying on their back with a lovely hard erection, it is not always proclaiming the content of their dreams. It has happened to me when I was not even dreaming, but it was because of the warmth of the summer sun and the lack of self-control, since I WAS asleep. Other times while I am sleeping, my bladder fills up and when I awaken to go and empty it, I have an erection.
An erection happened to me when I was walking down the beach and passed by a nice woman. I like it and I cannot see anything wrong with it. It is a great compliment for a woman to cause an erection on a nude beach.
