Here's our thoughts...there are venues and then there are venues.
When one goes to a well-managed resort one expects certain standards of behavior, but, at an open beach one's expectations should be different. We do both, and are more open and less "on guard" with people at resorts and keep mainly to ourselves at beaches; and if there is activity we don't care for, we move. But, we do not complain report, or make a scene, it is none of our business what others choose to do.
As to an open forum, barely moderated, such as this, one will come across things, conversation and pictures that one has no interest in, but there might be others who do. We feel that if you don't like what you're seeing move on till you do...but, do not try to establish standards by which others (yes some illegal things are different,,we're talking common sense)should conduct themselves,,,that is the behavior of religious fundamentalists and anti-nudist people.
And speaking for ourselves, we enjoy pictures of ourselves and others as part of our nudist experience, but do not publically post "intimate" stuff, but also do not try to hide any body portion whether flaccid or "puffy" penis or with female nipples responding to cold breeze or legs less than clamped together. Nor do we do gyno closeups featuring only the genitals and cruise past them when we come across them here. But, if that's what you want to do, fine, I'm sure you'll have some fans..live and let live, it's hard (oops) enough maintaining our own standards without monitoring the standards and expectations of others.
Some nudists, won't agree. Some come at this with a near religious fervor utterly denying any sort of sexual, voyeur, or exhibitionist components. I think those things are there, if we're perfectly honest, for all of us...but not in an overt manner, but just in the same way we're aware of those things about us in our total lives, at work and etc. Humans like to show off, we like to "check out" or "people watch" others. That is part of us, and when we shuck our threads we do not shuck our humanity..in fact, we become more attuned to all aspects of it...
And guys, this is not an invitation to send us pictures of your proud erections though, she's seen the best and has no interest in the rest...LOL,
When I first started visiting nude beaches or gatherings, I got a erection often. At first I was embarrassed, but I wasn't the only male with a erection. When you have beautiful people walking around, it is hard not to get a erection. I attended a family pot luck dinner and a lot of a younger males walked around with a erection. This is a natural body function. I have no problem walking around with a erection or seeing a male walking around with one. But taking pictures and posting them is wrong. Being a nudist is not about a sexual fantasy, it is about being free and expressing your open mind. Post your erections on porn sites, not here.
Nudineden, As a straight guy, I like your comment to Gymno. It's good to know that there are women who love the erect penis. It happens naturally. Is a woman's erect nipples something to be ashamed of and thus covered up? Theyr'e beautiful! Besides, concerning the penis, isn't that how it's supposed to be....when it's working?
Responding to Pepperlover. Men don't just get erections by having a photo taken of them nude! A nudist male does not get a full erection when he takes his clothes off! Men generally give themselves a purpose for an errection otherwise they are not natural.
Blokes who show photo's of their erect penis on this site are not genuine nudists. I can read the name of this site where it says Nudist Friends,I do not see where it says anywhere that this is a sex site. I think that it is a bit odd for a male to post a photo of his erect penis so that another male can see.
I have done a lot of Life/Nude modelling and, on many occasions, my client/s have requested me to pose this way and I have no qualms about doing so. An erection is a totally normal and healthy thing, but there is a time and place for everything. I do not agree with posting photos of erections on profiles nor deliberately "flaunting" them on the beach where they may be families with young children.
I dont know what everybody making such a fuss with posting pics of beautiful men with erections.Its a natural part of life.I dont mean that you should go aroung childen with an erection,but since there are adults on this site i dont see any harm in posting them.I doesnt matter to me i believe that all men hard or not are exciting.
I think some people confuse this site with the adult sex site. I have no problem with, say one picutre with an erection, but having every picture in your profile an erection shot is too much. I want to see faces, smiles, let me see that you're a nice welcoming person and fun to chat with.
Your absolute right in your comment. Photos of just excited men isnt the thing to do really.
I more meant that I understand that we can all get a bit aroused or too excited at times. Its obvioulsy a bit more difficult for men to hide it than it is for us but surely we all get that way at times especially with other people around us.
hi nakedlady. its great that you can understand that an errection is not necceserally a bad thing. i thing we all have to realise here is that there are people even nudists that see naked bodies all the time still dont like the site of an errect male.
its a respect peoples wishes thing.
everyone that is on this site knows that naked pictures are the norm. but pics of just erections are not really the right thing to post to the general community. it should be something thats left to those like yourself that are ok with it all. this also includes close ups of females parts as well.
i for one dont mind if i am seen with an errection but only when the people that are seeing are ok with it.
Ive never complained yet of seeing either a photo, or in real life on the beach...or anywhere come to that of an aroused man so Im not going to start here and now.
Theres nothing wrong with it my eyes.
n4ked24 i know what you mean. i hate it when nudist sites go to the way side when they are not moderated. there are plenty of sites out there just for the sex side.
try and hang in there and speak up when you see somthing you dont like. we need more like you to help keep nudist sites nudist.
I agree with most other replies. I prefer to see full length nude photos of men or women, not just breasts or genitalia. I believe everyone is attractive when naked. Having an erection is normal so I don't mind seeing them as long as they are part of a full length picture not just a close up.
