After Swimming




Let's get real. The drying process only starts after you take your swimsuit off. And the only way to avoid having to put clothes on a damp body is to spend some time wrapped in a towel. (And nothing else).

Still, I may have gotten a little carried away with how close a skimpy towel wrapped around your waist is to leaving you completely exposed...

Skinny Dipper



The key to a good landscape portrait (under which category falls "nature nudes") is to start with a good landscape. Compose your shot, and make sure it looks good on its own. Then find somewhere to add a person, and do your modeling thing. If you nail it, the image will be doubly impressive!


While I was playing around at the lake on my new hard-shell kayak (using it as a cheap stand up paddle board), a group of teenage girls passed by along the shore and I heard them tittering about "guys in speedos". Previously, they had been debating whether I was a woman swimming topless, or just a guy with really long hair. (Sound carries far - perhaps surprisingly so - across the water). I only made out bits and pieces of their conversation, but I detected a negative general consensus about the very concept of men wearing swim briefs. Which is entirely normal. But the double standard still gets to me. Apart from having to wear tops, these girls weren't wearing anything significantly different (or less revealing) than what I was wearing. But the rules are different depending on your sex. (And that's not fair). The funny thing is, if I had just worn a top (an experiment I would try the next time I would visit that lake), they probably would have just gone on assuming I was a girl (not having had that close a look at me), and wouldn't have had any issue with what I was wearing.

If you think the notion of a guy in a pair of swim briefs is ridiculous, I think that's at least partially because men don't hold themselves to the same grooming standards that women do. But I do. Ideally, we would live in a world where men were accepted in the swimsuit of their choice regardless of appearance. You know, the way women are (as it's not just slim, young women who wear body-baring bikinis). But I would settle for, at the least, a more reasonable world that judges a man based on his individual qualities - whether he's fit and attractive, and looks good in a speedo - rather than automatically relegating the entire category of "men in speedos" to the loony bin because it conjures up a silly (if not downright repulsing) mental image. This is the same way male crossplayers, and crossdressers in general, are treated - in our minds, we juxtapose the traditional image of manliness with the outward cues of femininity, and the result is often a hideous frankenstein. So we write off the very concept, without acknowledging that, with a little bit of care and intention, some men (not necessarily the ultra-masculine ones) can actually look good in these styles! But this fact is completely overlooked in favor of judgment - the ability to point and laugh at another's expense.


I'm exaggerating a little bit for effect. I'm sure these girls meant no harm; they were just reacting to an uncommon and remarkable (in the literal sense of the term) stimulus. They said nothing directly to me, and made no indication whatsoever that they resented me sharing the lake. (And, of course, there is not infrequently a disconnect between what you express in public, and the private thoughts you entertain when you're alone). Anyway, every person who sees me wearing a swim brief and recoils in horror or disbelief - regardless of the negative nature of their reaction - is one more person who's actually seen a man wearing a swim brief. Whether one likes it or not, the idea that this is an acceptable fashion choice is entirely predicated upon the condition that it is one that [some] people are actually choosing. Which I sadly don't see happening. But if I can be the vanguard of that progressive force, bearing the brunt of negative reactions so that others who may one day follow in my footsteps will have an easier time of it, then so be it. It's far better than the alternative, which is to kowtow to conformist pressures and allow myself to be forced into wearing something I don't like, while the culture remains stagnant, refusing to change. I'll gladly be the trailblazer for a freer future.



And on that note, after all the day trippers had left in the evening, and the sun was sinking toward the horizon, I was very excited to get a chance to go skinny dipping - if only briefly. I swim nude in pools at nudist resorts semi-regularly (in season), but it's a whole different atmosphere stripping off your swimsuit where it's not explicitly allowed - especially in a beautiful natural setting like this lake.



10/10. Would recommend. (Although I would advise a reasonable level of caution, for your own safety).

Garden Crawl



Consider this an outdoor version of this post!


Plus, here's a couple of bonus videos. There's no sound because the A/C unit is obnoxiously loud, and I forgot to shut it off while recording.


The garden isn't the only thing that's grown! :-p

Tell me walking around with an erection is indecent. There's not even any sexual behavior involved! Sexy behavior, sure. But that's not the same thing. There are tons of things that are sexy that are perfectly acceptable in public. And not only would it be unfeasible to ban them all, it would be unreasonable besides. I don't want to live in a world so prudish that anything that anyone could interpret in the privacy of their own mind as sexy is verboten, because of some stuffy notion of purity or whatever. I can understand that an unexpected erection could be shocking in certain contexts, just as the penis itself in a flaccid state (not least of all because they're generally hidden). But I still maintain that if you're comfortable with penises, then it really doesn't make that significant a difference whether it's soft or hard. You'd just as soon discriminate against the appropriateness of breasts based on their perkiness and cup size. Either take them as they come or leave them by the wayside - that's your choice. But let's don't be petty about it.

And on the subject of penis dynamics, penises are fascinating organs. Why can't we show all the wondrous things they can do?

Ironing



You know what I like to say: irony is a nudist doing laundry!


But, ironing is another one of those activities where it just makes more sense to do it in some stage of undress. You can't iron clothes while they're on your body!

Pajama Day



Saturday night run to Walmart? What better time to wear your pajamas? I totally think "pajama days" should be a bigger thing. I mean, I actually sleep naked, but it's a pajama day, not a "wear what you slept in" day, and when else am I gonna have a chance to wear my pajamas? XD

Imperial Rome



I fell in love with this dress the instant I saw it on the racks. I was thinking that I don't own very many dresses with long skirts, seeing as I like to show off my legs - but a long skirt can be very elegant and feminine. This dress is a vibrant purple, with sparkling gold accents. It reminds me of imperial Rome. I just need a pair of golden rope sandals to go with it. Maybe a gold leaf circlet. And a pair of Icarus briefs* underneath, for when I slip off the dress at the bath house.


*Did I tell you about this idea I have? If I were a fashion designer, I'd create a swimsuit that consists of a flesh-toned thong, with a fabric imitation fig leaf sewn into the front. So it looks like you're walking around naked but for the fig leaf! I think it sounds really fun. I call it an Icarus brief because it was inspired by a drawing of Icarus and Daedalus (Icarus' father, who not only created Icarus' wings, but the Labyrinth that housed the Minotaur) I came across once.

Juxtaposition



I thought this made for an interesting juxtaposition. I normally don't pee standing up - it seems rather barbaric (not to mention particularly masculine), but with the dress and the long hair...sometimes it's fun to fuck around with gender expectations.

Table Nude

It should come as no surprise to you that I like to delay getting dressed after a shower. It's no fun putting clothes on a damp body. So sometimes I'll show up to the dinner table naked.


After all, nudity when seated with your "tail" between your legs is pretty innocuous, not like standing with full frontal on display, or walking around swinging your "club". Furthermore, I have exceptionally long hair, and although it isn't capable of "clothing" me to as sufficient an extent as I might sometimes imagine, it does provide some coverage. I wanted to see just how much, so I took these pictures.


Turns out, I wasn't covered quite as much as I had imagined (I mean, you can't really see anything, but you can tell that I'm naked). Oh well.

Dick Pics



If dick pics have a bad reputation (and they certainly do), it's not because there's anything wrong with them. Like erotic media in general, much of it is produced without taste or skill - but it is my mission to prove that though this is the norm, it is not, however, inevitable.


Which is not to say that any of these pictures belong in a museum (necessarily). But my goal is to produce interesting pictures, and as an erotic artist, I think the male genitalia is at least interesting. Certainly, some penises are more photogenic than others, and it matters how they're posed.


Aside from the crassness of a genital closeup, the main strike against the reputation of dick pics is that they are, like a flasher in a trench coat, presumed to be shared with unsuspecting and non-consenting strangers. I make no defense of this behavior.


The statement that "nobody likes dick pics", however, is flat out incorrect. I know this from personal experience. The people who do like dick pics may not be the women who disproportionately get them - they may, rather, be more statistically likely to be gay men - but the fact remains that there is an audience for them, and that means there is a place for them in this world.


If you want to argue where that place is, and propose methods of keeping them where they belong, then I'll not only support you in that endeavor, but I'll even go so far as to join you. I like to be part of these discussions, and I think they need to be conducted among representatives of all sides. (After all, isn't that the founding principle of democracy?).


But there is very little under the stars that can be dismissed outright, and that sort of dismissive attitude (the antithesis of patience and tolerance) I find very unappealing.

Sun Caller



I appreciate the irony in these images - that I'm holding an icon of the sun, yet it's raining. You can actually see the rain drops if you look closely!

Continuing Adventures in Pink Panties



Would it be weird if I said that, somehow, I feel more naked wearing this skimpy underwear than if I were completely naked? Maybe it's because, as a nudist, I've internalized nudity in my mind as a perfectly appropriate (and non-sexually suggestive) outfit to be worn even in social gatherings (under the right conditions). But even among nudists, you don't often see people in their underwear - that is a garment specifically designed to be covered up, and not generally shown to other people (except, again, in sexual situations, and even then usually only for a short period of time before they come off).


Are there such things as underwearists? Maybe I'd feel differently if I shot a lot of underwear portraits or lingerie models... I guess it's just the perfect boundary between nudity and being dressed - the very presence of an article of clothing covering the usual bits (not altogether unlike what you would see on a public beach) tricks your mind into contextualizing the scene as one in which people are dressed, yet the sheer skimpiness of the underwear leaves very little (indeed, almost nothing) to the imagination. So even though you would see more if the figure were naked, your brain would immediately contextualize it as "a naked situation", but with the underwear, you feel like you're seeing something you're not supposed to be seeing.


Although, there will always be those who say that a little bit isn't enough - certainly there is still the excitement of full exposure. After all, you can't indulge in the joy of exposure without, you know, exposing something. Indeed, the tease of it may go a long way in explaining the allure of partial exposure.


I suppose a non-nudist would feel the same way about complete nudity - and I imagine that's what a lot of people mean when they say they don't want to "get used" to seeing nudity. But even with that realization, I still wouldn't give up the comforts and pleasures of a nudist lifestyle, among them the ability to appreciate, on occasion, the aesthetic virtues of a beautiful body unclothed and - not through a digital screen, but - in the flesh, as it were. ;-3


Can you drive my stick?
