Look! No Tanlines!

Tommy and I was working last night, when the subject of me going to the nudie pool came up. He asked me why I went. I didn't get a full response before we were interrupted. I gave it some thought last night and decided to do a post on it. I know many of my readers also enjoy such activities. Here is my take on it.

I enjoy nudity with other men because it builds an intimate bond without sex or the expectation of sex. It also helps with my self image problems. I get to see and appreciate the male body in all it's diversity, which helps me better accept my body and that makes me feel good about myself. Probably the best therapy around for self image concerns. It also helps level the playing field some what on a social-economic level. For someone like me, who struggles with weight and economic issues, there are no designer labels that shout status or fancy jewelry, except maybe the occasional cockring, that indicates anything about the person's job, income, taste, proclivities, activities, etc. You truly meet the person, not who they want to be perceived as. You get to know the person in a neutral setting. To me, it is the best way to meet someone. I also don't like tanlines and it also fun. A bit more exciting to look at real live naked men rather than porn. Tommy says he isn't shy, but he doesn't get into the social nudity thing. For the most part, neither do I. I do like to go to the pool and nude sunbathe, maybe splash in the pool a bit and have a chat with friends or make new ones. It's very liberating. It's almost spiritual to me. I think it is the ultimate in male bonding experiences without having sex. Of course sharing that experience with someone you have an intimate relationship with, I think, forges a deeper bond of acceptance and trust. But that is just me.

I fully agree with you about this. I like going naked around other Men without thinking I have to have sex. Once in a while it happenes but not often.

I agree with you. Being naked is not being sexual. I'm OK with being nude with people if we all understand it's not sexual and won't cross that line. I guess that's why I don't go to all male gay nude things, I think there would be too many people just waiting or wanting it to turn sexual and then I'd be out of there fast.

Good post Dave.

Group nakedness inevitably just leads to sex, for me anyway.

I agree. I have several nudist friends of both sexes. We travel and enjoy each others company at nudist resorts. We are going on a nude cruise in February. No tan lines is the best!
Thank you for this great post! It's nice to know that other do not equate nudity with sex.
