RE:U saw a man at a nude beach wearing a penis ring. Any thoughts?

You have seen the elephant in the room and confirmed it is an elephant:

"I cant imagine why anyone would want to do that unless they want to be noticed."

Some folks just want to ignore the elephant, pretend it is just a small, un-noticed accessory and wonder about all the fuss. It truly does not make sense to me but it's not my deal. The rest of us just get to 'cover' for it by our own actions. We'll all press on and hope for the best.

You have to wonder... does the guy wear any cock rings when he's alone? Does he just like the feel of the weight on his cock? Or does he wear one for comfort (and I knew a man who did just that... it pushed his balls forward so that they didn't interfere with his sitting down).

If he's wearing diamond-studded cock rings, though, it's definitely for show. It calls attention to his vanity far more than his love for being nude.

Was he deformed in some manner?

Sitting down for men isnt an issue.

You make an interesting point about the elephant in the room and attempts to ignore or trivialize the impact. There seems to be a tendency to take outlier type experiences a guy with oversized testicles" and position them as normal for nudists and rationalize them for the general public. It seems like an effort to justify certain behavior. I just keep asking myself why? Why try to take behavior that is clearly limited to a small group of people and try to make it the norm?

He didn't seem to be. He just felt that it was more comfortable for him.

I kind of agree with the argument that outlier's behavior shouldn't be construed as the norm. All the same, I'm willing to cut that guy some slack, since I knew he wasn't bullshitting me. He's one of the most honest and unassuming people I've ever met.

But I don't buy the idea that just because somebody does something for a good reason (at least to him) means that somebody else can do it for a clearly frivolous reason.

I wear a cock ring at home naked as well as clothed. It is clear and does not draw attention to itself, though it positions my penis and testicles to be more prominent. I haven't worn it at a nude beach because there are none around. I consider my cock ring a good tool - combined with a lot of focused exercise - for improving my anterior pelvic tilt. This is a condition where my genitals are positioned under my stomach and my butt sticks out due to weak core muscles caused by too much sitting. Now my legs, stomach and chest are more aligned and as a result my penis is more proudly in front. I still have a long way to go (ncluding losing an inch of belly fat) and consider my cock ring positive reinforcement. Perhaps we should consider women's brassiers an elephant in the room because they call attention to their breasts and unnaturally defy gravity.

It never ceases to amaze the excuses and the whataboutery the older single man can devise to justify his choice.

You know if an individual wants to use pretzel logic to justify their own behavior I dont have an issue.
Its the generalization of that to normalize that makes it unttenable for me. Don't try to normalize what are individual actions as generally accepted norms of behavior for the nudist community.

Since I don't know this person I would not presume to make assumptions about his motives or intent. My concern is using that individuals actions to justify the behavior in general since it isn't easily generalized to a norm in the broader population of the nudist and naturist community.
