How did being 'not as endowed' make you feel first time at a nudist place?
Walter w/ Q. to men of 'lesser' size. When first at a nudist place, aside from normal nervousness, did you worry because (as wwe all know) 'regular' society is about 'bigger' , that : 1. You'd feel all would be staring & judging because of that? ...and 2. You'd get laughed at? Me...I'm a self taught nudist (at home, when parents out) but with an unsure image of myself I thought it possible but once there, it was like being at home. I knew then I'd really love being a nudist. : ] )
I consider myself to be average at best, but I don't care. I went to my first social event last July and while it is impossible to not notice such things, nobody cares. We are there to be amongst friends who don't need the artificality of clothing. Our eyes are on our faces. I am not trying to come off as rude, but as a naturist/nudist I will say that penis size is irrelevant. Don't focus on such a trivial matter and just have fun.
when i saw this question i had to read it twice just to make sure i understood it....why in the hell would you /anyone give a rats ass about your size ? its a nudist environment not some damn contest !!!!!
actually a lot of guys have hangups on they're small penises just like women have hangups on they're small breast. i had a nudist friend who had a hangup about being uncut not at the nudist camp but at the Y and finally got cut. always been small but love being nude never thought about it even my first time at camp and truth be most at camp are either small or average sure have a big penis but very often one parades around erect.
C'mon, people - the size concern is very, very common and it's really not helpful just to excoriate a newcomer for expressing it. And to the newcomer: there may always be a few oddballs who care (there will be more of them on the internet than in real life) but the nudist community in general is pretty well indifferent to body-standards issues - too big/too small/too fat/ too thin are all comparisons with some ideal; once you're exposed to real people in a wide variety of real bodies it just stops mattering. People relate to you for the way you ACT, not the way you look. Nudism is a great way to get past body image issues, because you stop hiding the body, and your fears just aren't fulfilled.
I'm really rather stun that someone would make another feel unwanted because of their 'size'. If you are a true nudist, what concern is it that he is 'small' in that department. I would rather think that been overweight would be a more major concern. We have our bodies for one reason, to live in them and nothing more than that. If we're going to get hung up on size, and like one guy posted been uncut over cut, then we have our values focused on the wrong area.
Wife and I spent a nice day today at local resort we are members of. There were two individuals that were their for the first time. The female was travelling across the state and had heard we have a wonderful resort. The other was a 40s age guy, very first time he had been nude in public. He was a bit shy, understandable. By the end of the night, he was more relaxed. The single female mention to him, we don't care much about what you look like, it's you as a whole. The rest of us assured him it's the lifestyle and nothing else. Him and I talked more in private while in the hot tub and then in his mobile trailer, repeated what we'd all told him. He was concern about his image and I told him, be yourself and physical stuff will blur the more you take nudism for it. Actually I don't even remember how he looked 'there'...
Happibear, it is worth taking the plunge to get naked with others and if you are like most of us the self consciousness about body parts will disappear fast. Use it as an opportunity to begin to enjoy your bod as it is.
I fret more about what to wear to a clothed party than I fret about how I will look at a naked one. Of course we all think about how we present physically, but you will discover that the folks you want to socialize with don't care about penis size (or wrinkles or tummies, etc). You are self-proclaimed HAPPY, that is what to bring to the social situation.
And for goodness sake, don't subscribe to some claptrap about only looking at peoples' faces. We each have a whole body, it can be acknowledged with eyes. Yeesh.
Let us know how it goes.
I'm really rather stun that someone would make another feel unwanted because of their 'size'.
As someone who is concious about the size of my penis I'm not worried about someone pointing and laughing at in front of me it but I'm worried about what they're thinking and what they might say when I'm not around.
It probably sounds weird to someone who isn't worried about their size but it's like everything mental - hard to explain and not easy for someone else to understand. It's easy for you to say and think "size doesn't matter" or "nobody cares" but harder for someone like me and the OP to.
I'm not a naturist yet but want to be. While not the same situation as normal naturism, I've been naked at gay saunas and the longer I was with naked men the more relaxed I got and realised there's nothing to worry about.
I have to say, as someone who feels a great deal self-conscious about my body, I found that the size of my penis was not something I gave much thought to. In all honesty, I'm probably average/less than average on that scale, but I don't let it bother me because really, who cares? A brief read through some of the "introductory" topics on here will tell you that, at your normal nudist venue, you can expect to see people of all shapes and sizes, both in genitalia and overall body type. And sure enough, on my first visit to a campground, that's exactly what I saw. So for me personally, it really was a non-factor my first time out, and of course on any subsequent visits.
