Beach X-cerpts

I'm a little bit behind schedule - although not quite so severely as I was last year around this time. But it'll be fall in another week, and I'm only just getting around to sifting through the pictures I took during my summer vacation to the beach back in July. These are the more X-rated excerpts - lying in bed in the morning, and admiring my reflection in the bathroom mirror - for your viewing pleasure. I'll be posting shots in all the different swimsuits I wore on my Patreon account over the course of the next week.

Why I Wear Swim Briefs

Brief-style swimsuits for men - as exemplified (though not monopolized) by the Speedo brand - are not very popular in the United States (although I hear they're more common in parts of Europe). In fact, they carry a certain stigma that I feel is largely unwarranted, as it seems to extend beyond even men with out of shape bodies "parading" around in them, and is out of proportion with the sort of attention that similarly skimpy swimsuits for women regularly receive, regardless of the age or body type of the women wearing them.

Why do I wear swim briefs? Because I like to wear swim briefs. Why do I like them? Well, let's see...

Reasons I like swim briefs:

* They're comfortable. I'm a nudist, and I'm comfortable in my skin. I like the feeling of not wearing clothes. So, in lieu of being permitted to go skinny dipping, the less I have to wear while swimming, the better.

* They're sexy. As someone who makes an effort to stay in shape, and who understands the appeal of eye candy, wearing swim briefs makes me feel sexy (regardless of how they make you feel).

* They're brief. Compared to shorts (especially the wide-legged, knee-length variety that is currently in vogue), there's less fabric to get in the way while swimming. There's also less fabric that needs to dry after you get out. (Also, fewer visible tan lines!).

* They're more like underwear than clothes. As someone who enjoys swimming at any opportunity, I like that I can wear swim briefs under my clothes and be ready to swim at a moment's notice. They also preserve the action of getting undressed to go swimming, which feels natural to me, as someone who doesn't like to swim in my clothes. If this seems weird, consider that a great many women's swimsuits also resemble underwear.

* On that note, as a person with an unconventional gender identity, I like that swim briefs more closely resemble the style of swimsuits that women often wear, while still being practical for my anatomy. As such, I feel that wearing swim briefs promotes equality of the sexes, holding men's bodies to the same high standards as women's.

* Furthermore, I feel that men have a comparable lack of options when it comes to swimwear. There are plenty of colors and patterns, but hardly any variety in styles, with alternatives very hard to find in stores. Therefore, by exercising my right (where applicable) to wear swim briefs, whether the greater public appreciates it or not, I am exposing them to diversity, and promoting the freedom of choice.

In conclusion, I think swim briefs are not only comfortable and practical, but also sexy, and wearing them promotes the democratic values of freedom, equality, and diversity that I believe in. That's why I wear them. And why you, even if you don't like wearing them yourself, should support those of us who do.

Lounge Chair Hard-on

I apologize if I've been neglecting this blog lately. But between summer vacations (yes, plural), and me making a concerted effort to produce a lot of content for my new Patreon page - in order to give people an incentive to pledge - I've been rather busy. On that last note, I've decided on a name-your-price model, so you can join up for as little as a dollar a month (which is really not unreasonable), and gain access to lots of artistic nude photography and even quite a few nude life documentary-style videos.

The only real drawback is the restriction on pornography, and since Patreon doesn't have a robust community of feedback like Flickr, or a pretty descriptive set of guidelines like deviantART, I pretty much have to guess what constitutes "real people engaging in sexual acts such as masturbation". It's probably safe to default to the rules I'm used to on deviantART - while an erection isn't an act, it could be considered evidence of sexual stimulation (whether physical or otherwise) in a way that a simple pose couldn't. Although poses like the following one are a grey area, on deviantART this would most likely be considered pornographic, and the spreading is more of an act than a simple position, so it would seem safe to err on the side of caution.

Oh, by the way, I've also recently joined Twitter, so you should follow me there, too.

Bias & Discrimination

I fully submit that I am biased, and that I have had the opportunity to become accustomed to certain types of materials through years of regular exposure. But if it's a matter of perspective, then why shouldn't I argue the value of one perspective over another? It amazes me that companies (let alone our own government) - that ostensibly serve the public - feel justified in passing moral judgment on works of an erotic nature, and openly discriminate against those whose lifestyles or livelihoods revolve around physical and/or psychological stimulation of a more or less sexual nature. As if we were all still children - not responsible adults - incapable of wielding our own moral agency.

I get that some people - maybe even a lot of people - are offended or disgusted by the sight of these sorts of things, and that's why filters exist. Their utility (or necessity) in society is a separate discussion. But must we go one step further and punish those who engage in these pursuits to the extent that we can single them out? Is it really necessary to stand there and say, "you cannot point willing agents toward this material." Even if you warn them about what they are going to see, and rely on their free choice to click through (or not)? Do we not live in a free society?

Whose imperative is it to dictate the righteousness of asexuality, and under whose authority are they given the power to enforce the sexual purity of our culture? There is nothing evil about sex. It is not a corrupting influence, but a fundamental part of our existence. There are good and bad ways of approaching it (for which reason education is imperative), but it is not a character flaw or a moral weakness to engage in erotic media.

To experience sexual pleasure is healthy. To share it with others is a positive force for society. And there is no reason why profiting from this exchange should be viewed as any less moral than any other exchange of goods or services that our capitalist society wholeheartedly condones. I ask not for society to judge me, but if it insists on doing so, then I deserve an explanation for why getting turned on is equivalent to a vice - comparable to introducing poisonous chemicals into my body, or lying and cheating others, much less engaging in violence. Isn't it the society that does so - that deems pleasure a moral toxin - the one which is truly diseased?
