Asexual Eunuchs Is that the image that we wish to convey? We encounter sexuality in some form or other constantly in our daily lives. Turning on the TV, we find it in the commercials, the carefully made up weather lady, the situation comedies and elsewhere. At the grocery store, we will, on occasion, spot a member of the opposite sex which we find attractive and warrants a second look. What male has not encountered a waitress who flirts a little bit to build the tip? We consider this to be normal and a pleasurable part of our lives. There are those that would preach from the cyber pulpit that there is no sexuality in nudism. It defies logic that the removal of ones clothing instantly transforms one with a healthy libido to a sexless creature. Perhaps, they are confusing higher standards of decorum among nudists with a lack of sexuality. While, true, that the removal of ones clothing eliminates the mystic, attraction does not magically disappear. the people we find attractive clothed ,we are likely to find attractive, nude. Those who claim there is no sexuality in nudism counter the image that most would like the general public to hold. That: We are normal people from all walks of life who find no shame in being unclothed in the presence of either sex..The toughest of all tennants of nudism. It is not that there is no sexuality in nudism, but that nudism is not a sexual activity. Unless of course you go home after seeing a nice looking nude woman and masterbate. Then, for you, the nudist activity is foreplay, and a sexual activity. Next time you see forum threads on why there are so few women on the nude beach...think about it.

To me, there is a sexual charge attached to nudity. That doesn't mean I will act on it--but on some level I will acknowledge it. It is sexually stimulatiing to look at a person--male or female--naked. Swingers clubs have that as a basic premise while the nudist camp/resort goes to an opposite extreme--almost hypocritcal. But the nudist camp wants people to discipline that sexual expression in the nudist camp. No overt display of sexuality. And for all the times I've attended, sexual expression has never been a problem. But I gotta say, the naked swingers club with pool, hot tub, patio, plaza was a whole lot of fun.I have to agree that a sexual charge is one factor in nudity and nudism. I find that after sex my desire to be nude is reduced, not eliminated, but reduced. Something very basic inside the human brain is at that moment satiated and provides less of an impetus. I suppose its similar to the advice to go shopping after you've eaten, you buy more when hungry, less when full. The two maybe connected, after eating or sex I want to nap :-)

Trying to figure this clothing optional thing out.
Hmm, interesting thread.ï¿½ I left it for ages because I did not want to throw a fox in the chicken coop too soon.ï¿½Nailed it Will. Sex does not need to have a public display clothed or unclothed. In a nude setting even the least sexual overture is compounded by the fact that their are no clothes. The nudist community should be a voice of reason and bastion of good behavior in a hyper sexual world. I go to camp to get away from the world and to relax not to be blasted by other peoples sexual desires.
I guess you all know that i AM asexual.ï¿½ Oh, yes, I am 46xy karyotype male and behaviour would tell you I would make the world's worst female.ï¿½ But, alas, faulty Leydig and, it seems, Sertoli cells prevented development of my sexual organ, save for a 100% benign prostate.ï¿½
So, sadly, I have no sexual functions or sensations whatsoever.ï¿½ I am permanently pre-pubescent. The upside it that, if i "go without" for a year, at least I am not almost neurotically frustrated lol.ï¿½
The main downside of my asexuality is that I cannot reproduce, mitigated by a stroke of luck which saw my sister and nephews need a foster father for the past 20 myears.ï¿½ So I am a Dad! .....and maybe there is a God, LOL!ï¿½
BTW, a eunuch is a full sexual male who has had his testicles removed, crushed or disabled.ï¿½ He cannot reproduce, but he still has sexual instincts in his brain.ï¿½ A eunuch is NOT asexual.ï¿½ï¿½ Neither am I a eunuch, in fact I am the only male we will ever know who could never be one.
Then again, how sexless am I, even?ï¿½ I am still determined to find a girlfriend.ï¿½ Why not a boyfriend.ï¿½ Surely if I am asexual, I would not discern between the genders.ï¿½ Other than possible social heterosexual conditioning I have no answer to that one.ï¿½
Getting back, another downside is that I am almost irrascibly anti-sexualization of naturism.ï¿½ It is a downside, because I stand alone, yet I insist it is not personal.ï¿½ I have studied the biology and psychology of humanity and I assure you it is not biologically natural or sustainable for the human race, or any other mammal, to be obsessed with sex and sexuality as it is today.ï¿½ I have a term for it: Sexual Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, to go alongside the other third millennium mass psychological disorders of material OCD, gambling OCD and image OCD, all of which have brought us to world economic and social crises.ï¿½
So where are we in all this regarding naturism and sexualization.ï¿½
Well, although I am probably the only biological asexual you will ever meet, we are all naturally asexual for most of our lives.ï¿½ This is by necessity.ï¿½ Nature dictates that the priorities in our lives are survival and reproduction, but probably in a ratio of something in the order of 90:10, (snatching a guess out of the air). So we are NATURALLY "sexual" only a small part of our time.ï¿½ Anything more is contrived through disorders brought on by weakness in the face of outside influences who stand to gain financially from our succumbment, mainly the media.ï¿½
George Romero predicted this in Night of the Living Dead, where he saw radiation (the media?) making humanity mutate into sexual zombies, with only Ben (who I suppose is me, lol) and a few others hiding out in the farmhouse.ï¿½
Now look at naturism in this light.ï¿½
We are the least sexually obsessed community in the western world.ï¿½ This may be because of familiarity with the human body, whereas mainstream society hides it behind "dirty raincoats" 24/7.ï¿½
So maybe Naturism is the real-life manifestation of the farmhouse in Night of the Living Dead.ï¿½ What is specific there is that Ben and his friends NEVER devolve into zombies at ANY time during their siege.ï¿½ This relates to a rebellious community that NEVER succumbs to sexual obsession.ï¿½
The implication here is obvious!ï¿½
Naturists, representing the farmhouse captives, maybe NEED to reject sexualization outright in order to guarantee immunity to the sickness that prevails out there in mainstream society.ï¿½ This does not mean they are eunuchs ....it means that they are not obsessive.ï¿½ Yes, we have children.ï¿½ Yes, we do have sex.ï¿½ Yes, all guys except me occasionally wake up aroused in the morning (but that can just be blood pressure or dying for a pee lol).ï¿½ But maybe we need to build a moat outside our natural moral castle walls which comes over as extreme.ï¿½
The rule in life, in standards, in business deals, in negotiations generally, is to decide what you want and ask for more.ï¿½
Therefore we want a clean-ish community in which to bring up our kids nude but safe.ï¿½ We are the last bastion of morality and family values in society.ï¿½ So we draw a line in the sand, not as cleanish, but but absolutely, God-fearingly pristine. We have to!ï¿½
That is why we are extreme in our stand against over-sexualization.ï¿½ It is our responsility to up the drawbridge until society recognises the lesson we have to teach them. ....and to protect ourselves from their problems!
