RE:Proud Male

Those that push the so called boundaries, for their own needs, are not always naturists/nudists, they have just realised it's a way of being naked with others to get their kicks, there is a fairly defined distinction between a true nudist and a so called nudist who is actually an exhibitionist, flasher etc.If your talking Paedo's, rapists etc, those thoughts and feeling are not normal to most of us, just to that group of people ! Also rules of nudity vary from country to country, America being somewhat prudish with regards to the naked form.

Looks like we are thinking along the same lines. The point is, we have to guard against them to protect what we have. Weather it is a beach or this site, or our and our children's safety. Modern society suffers from the childish "me first screw you" attitude of a minority, who will wreck things for every body if we are not vigilant.

Erections arent the problem as much as the intent behind them. Nudists should never be threatening and need to always err on the side of discretion and respect for who we are in the presence of.

A key tenet of naturism is social nudity with respect for others. I suspect the respect for others you mansion is not a part of the calculus of some in this discussion

Personally speaking, erections for me happen because of my state of mind. If I'm sexually aroused, an erection happens. If I happen to be naked in a social setting...no erections.

This is exactly how I experience it. Despite what some like to suggest arousal starts in the mind not in the loins. Admitting that truth however would remove the simplistic excuse that is used to perpetuate and validate the appropriate behavior harmful to all but those espouse the contrary belief.

We are at a point now in modern society when some men think they should be able to do whatever they want whenever they want without regard to how their behavior my impact hurt or harm others. The rejection of public overt sexual arousal in social nudity is for the benefit of the whole community but a minority of men think that their feeling perceptions and sexual proclivities override those of the community. In doing so they undermine the ability and opportunity of others to be safe. Then make up facts to justify the behavior. Where in the world? which country is it natural normal or acceptable for a man to walk around in public with an exposed erection clothed or naked?
That is just total BS. It if isnt name the place please?

That is the kind of BS that causes the rest of society to consider all naturist as sexually perverted despite the fact that the promoters of these ideas really arent. The result in England where public nudity without offense and non sexual is growing in practice British Naturism had one of its longest running events at Water Park Cancelled because the parks owners are worried about public perception that they were going to be hosting an event that allowed opportunity for child abuse. The same this happened in Canada. No US water would even consider such an event for fear of public backlash.

So the few who can't wrap their brains around simple nudity not being sexual ruin it for everyone else who seems to be able to manage their sexual urges just fine. In the process they are likely killing of naturism as a generation will pass who have no idea what it means to have social nude experience without shame and guilt from one side aNd fear of their safety from another.

Well done fellas well done.

It is an indisputable scientific fact that not all erections are caused by sexual arousal. They can be caused by all sorts of stimulation from a change in air pressure, to a stiff breeze (pun intended), to the sight of a breath-taking vista from the top of a mountain. In truth, any guy whose plumbing still works will get a few random ones per day (they probably won't even notice) and a regular series of them as they sleep. It's just how it is. It's biology.

Anyone who claims that all erections are sexual in nature is just flat out ignorant, willfully or otherwise.

I'll have to take your word for that first part. But I need to inform you that it is not the case for every man. As others have already stated. One of Dad's sex talks was about erections, In short he said, to avoid the embarrassment of getting one when you don't want it, just keep your mind out of the gutter. Yes, that was a struggle in the early years. By junior high they would happen during the day because of a full bladder, the same as my night erections still do to this day.

So from my perspective, it looks like many are trying to shift the blame for this happening. Or just not willing to take responsibility for it. Self control is possible if you are willing to try.

RE:Proud Male

It literally is the same for every man assuming there's not some sort of medical problem or advanced age in play. No amount of self control will keep it in check all the time - any man who says they have never had an erection when they didn't want to is just flat out lying or hasn't been paying attention.

Look, I'm not saying everyone should run around with hard-ons, not at all; you absolutely should do your best to minimize their occurrence in a social nudism setting. What I am saying is that what matters more than the erection itself is the context of the erection and the behavior associated with it. Simply having an erection does not by default make you a creep, a pervert, or morally deficit. These things do happen, and sometimes they're innocent. And even if they are born of sexual arousal (perfectly natural if folks are flirting) - it's still not an automatic creep offense. You've got to pay attention to the situation and the behavior involved. Bad behavior is what should determine the judgment - and simply getting an erection in the first place does not constitute bad behavior so long as it wasn't purposefully induced, had around children, or something along those lines. Again - context, behavior - these are what matter most.

I agree with the second part, but not the first part. We know our bodies are similar but different from each other. The same can be said for our brains, they are all wired somewhat differently from person to person. Religion and politics are a good example of how the wiring is different. Is it really so hard to imagine that some men may have different wiring between their brain and penis?

RE:Proud Male

The wiring between the brain and penis is affected by age. At seventeen, it seemed like I was erect most of the time and it took little stimulation to get there. Just being nude would get me to full. At 70, it takes work to get there. I was not then nor am I now a social nudist, so I can only imagine the embarrassment and the difficulty of trying to hide an erection. Rolling over could be a solution, but it could also be enough stimulation to bring on ejaculation. How does one wade into the water from the beach without it showing?
