Celebrating the Life of Gay Social Nudity! Welcome to My Gayborhood: an Affirming Site For Men Comfortable With Their Nakedness and Their Sexuality! Just so that you know, not only am I not wearing any boxers, I'm likewise without bikinis, briefs, jockstraps or thongs: I'm totally nude!
As 2012 draws to a close, I'm ending the year with a huge smile on my face. All things considered, it's been a very good year for me. Rather than harbor regrets over the end, I'm confident of even better days and times in 2013. I honestly can't remember feeling this positive about the calendar change ever before in my life. I'm hoping this is a sign that from here on, it will be uphill all the way. As a matter of fact, I know life is going to be good!
The main cause of my exuberance is my new attitude. I shared this aspect of my personality several weeks ago: up until this past year, I've always been very shy. Not about my nudity, but about me. I've never harbored any modesty about being naked with others. Strange, but it has always been extremely difficult for me to make new friends or to even have a routine conversation with others, no matter the situation. To be honest, in my four years of college, I had only three guys on campus I consider acquaintances. All three knew that I'm gay. None of them knew that I'm a nudist. I don't think any of them ever knew the names of even one of my three older sisters.
What changed this pattern in my life is my boyfriend. Truthfully, he's the first man that I've been with for more than just a couple of months. This wasn't for lack of trying on my part, all my previous interests simply didn't have the patience to deal with my shyness. My current man just squeezes my hand, puts his arms around my shoulder and reminds me that we'll get through this social encounter, one moment at a time. Believe it or not, that small gesture has given me more strength than any steroid injection could ever provide.
This has, in turn, led to me meeting some great men in 2012 that have now become fantastic friends. Three of my new friends have been blogging here on Blogger.com for several years now. They are the reasons that I began this blog last month. Their encouragement, along with that of my boyfriend, opened this new door for me. I'm now at a new place in my life where I know that I can grow beyond my anxiety and my inner shyness. An example: one year ago, I never would muster the courage to write this same paragraph about myself.
Yes, I do get anxious and nervous in social settings, especially when meeting strangers. I'm still not a very outgoing person. What's important is that now I know that I can do this. I know that I want to do this. I'm finding that I actually enjoy being introduced to new men and learning about them. I'm now aware that each man that I meet has the potential of broadening my life experience. Also, I'm doing this with the man that I love standing with me and with the support of my new friends. Yes, life is good and 2013 is going to be a great year, regardless of what happens!
Signs of the upcoming holidays are all around us. I thought now would be an appropriate time to revisit some of the customs and traditions that have been handed down throughout the years. First, the trees are up and the lights glow at night. It's a pretty sight. It's a shame we don't see the problems men experience while decorating these yule marvels. You've never really celebrated the season unless you've had a string of lights get caught in your ass. A hazard that gay nudists can easily identify with. Now that's what truly makes the holiday bright!
Many prefer to decorate their homes with rare, one-of-a-kind ornaments. They believe it helps to make them the envy of all their acquaintances and friends. While that may be true, to me, it hardly justifies the arduous task of resting your cock on a poinsettia plant for the magical twelve days of Christmas!
And last, but not least, there is the traditional visit to the local shopping mall or department store to visit Santa. After awhile, it becomes rather boring sitting on his lap every year. So this year, the new tradition that is becoming quite trendy is to offer Santa a blow-job in exchange for his guarantee to deliver all the items on our Christmas list! This one is increasingly popular with gay men everywhere!
Personally, one of the highlights of this past year were the Summer Olympics in London, UK. I was extremely disappointed in the Beijing Games in 2008. I think the British did an excellent job of presenting the Olympiad in the spirit and environment originally intended. Of course, like most nudist gay men, I think the games should all be clothes-free. However, that's probably not going to change based solely on my preference.
I found these images created by Dutch photographer Jan Freriks. Based on actual competitors for event medals, he added the Union Jack, the UK's flag, and then portrayed the athletes as they would have competed in ancient Greece: nude. The photographer is a man after my own heart. For that reason, I'm sharing them with all of you now.
It's been a cold and rainy Sunday here. I've been toying with the idea of adding a space on Guys Without Boxers dedicated to gay adult entertainment performers that I both admire and respect due to their commitment to HIV/AIDS prevention education and other worthy endeavors. I had some free time today so I developed a second page on this blog for that purpose. Please check it out and let me know what you think by leaving a comment in the appropriate place: the "Comments" link below the pictures.
To visit the page, look at the top of the list on the right hand area of your screen. Under the heading, of "Pages," click on the one titled: Guys Without Boxers: Porn Actor Links." That should take you directly to the page. If you experience any difficulty, either email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment using the link below. Once again, I welcome all feedback and suggestions.
This page is a "work-in-progress." Check it regularly for any additions and updates. At this time, I do intend to rotate pictures featured there periodically. Variety is the spice of life, right?
I selected the accompanying photo above primarily because it shows the man viewing porn on his screen. Totally appropriate for this post. I also really appreciate his booty-ful ass. Damn, he's got some delicious cakes! Although I'm primarily a bottom guy myself when it comes to sex, I do know how to service my man's ass. Besides, I do enjoy fucking an ass as nice as his. Remember, I'm primarily, not exclusively, a bottom. There is a difference.
A reminder to please let me know what you think about this addition. By the way, the image below is the new one included with my emails. It's about a year old. I wish my chest was as hairy as my ass (not that I want to sacrifice one single follicle of hair there)!
This past year, I've made a remarkable number of new gay nudist friends through this man that I started dating on Valentine's Day. That's right, our first date was dinner on February 14. But I'll share more about that later. These new buddies that I've met because of the man I'm with are a great bunch of guys that have a history together.
A part of this history is a holiday tradition that dates back four years. This couple, who live in the Tidewater (eastern) region of Virginia, host a holiday nudist social in December that benefits needy children. Every guest at this party must bring at least one new, unwrapped toy as a contribution. After all the men have arrived, they take off their clothes and then set about wrapping their donation in colorful paper, labelling the gender and appropriate age on the gift card instead of the recipient's name. A cool icebreaker idea: the dudes strip and then cover-up the toys!
My boyfriend and I drove the one-hundred (plus) miles from our home city of Richmond, Virginia to eastern Virginia last Sunday morning to attend this afternoon event. I was somewhat nervous about meeting all these men, most of them for the first time. As a nudist, the naked part didn't bother me in the least. I'm basically a shy and withdrawn dude, socially, so that side of my personality stepped forward to cause my concern.
However, once we'd stripped off our clothes, my stress was likewise relieved. It felt good to be in the company of about three dozen gay men, all naked, and everyone having fun. We worked in teams for the gift-wrapping project and by the time we'd finished, I felt relaxed and at ease. It really brought on the holiday spirit knowing that I was a part of a project of same gender loving naturists who were contributing to Christmas joy for youth that none of us even knew. The true reason for the season!
I did make it a point to mention this blog when I was introduced to men. It helped to ease my awkwardness to have at least one topic on my plate to add to the conversation. That crutch aided my hobble from one introduction to another. Just knowing that I had one topic to offer was soothing.
After a couple of hours, due to the distance, my boyfriend and I had to leave. Reluctantly, we dressed and mad our goodbyes. Despite our early departure, the good feeling of the party stayed with us on the trip home. It felt great to know that we'd been part of bringing happiness to others and at the same time, enjoyed the fellowship of gay nudists. The sense of goodwill is basic to the meaning of Christmas and this social had given to us the best gift of all: a reminder of the essence of the holiday.
Question of the Season: Who makes the determination of naughty and nice? Satisfied customers? I mean, clearly he can't possibly offer an opinion of his own ass. How does he know that it's nice? Does he take a customer service survey every time he...entertains? I'm just curious as to how he rates the "nice" label. I'm not aware that USDA offers such a ranking/rating.
Once a month, on or about the 10th day, a special feature I'll publish here on Guys Without Boxers is the entry: Armpits of the Month. One of my passionate fetishes are men's armpits and the sexy tufts of hair that grow there. You might think of me as bizarre with this obsession, no problem from me on that one. That's possibly an accurate assessment.
For almost as long as I can remember, I have had this fascination with men's hairy underarms. Long before I even understood the meaning of the words homosexual and erotic. I recall from my early years that I simply liked and was attracted to this aspect of the male body. It was only when I reached puberty and my teen years that I realized and appreciated this fetish.
On a monthly basis, I'll post a photo that shows a handsome man, preferably nude, proudly displaying his sexy armpits. I share this for your enjoyment as well as mine. Hopefully, you'll appreciate the eye candy.
I always get asked this question at least once every winter holiday season: What do you give a nudist as a gift? I'm sure some of those asking are probably doing so in jest. Yet, at the same time, I hope at the very least, some of the curious are sincere. It is a valid question. Most people exchange presents out of friendship and love. Practically all givers want to offer something useful that the receiver appreciates. So rather than sweat the motive of the questioner, I try to reply honestly and respectfully.
What do you give a naturist/nudist for the holidays? First, any gift that you'd share with anyone else on your list is fine. Just because a person prefers nudity doesn't make them any less of a human. That being said, there are several items that most nudists find generous, thoughtful as well as useful.
As in all gift selections, the choice is based on price range and on closeness with the recipient. These decisions rest with the giver. All the suggestions I'm offering are available in a variety of styles and price ranges.
One item that many nudes truly appreciate is the "fanny-pack" or "hip-pouch." This item is merely an adjustable belt worn around the waist with a utility pouch attached. It's always popular for valuables storage at nudist/naturist events and functions as well as hiking or a day at a clothes-free beach. On the expensive end of the price range, these come in all leather styles or may be found in the more economical styles such as nylon or canvas. When searching the various sizes, keep in mind that most men need to fit a wallet, keys as well as mobile communication devices inside them, with a little room to spare.
Nudists use towels as a barrier between their ass and whatever piece of furniture they're sitting on. This is an essential part of naked etiquette as both a courtesy and a matter of hygiene. A couple of hand towels always make a thoughtful gift not just for the holidays but other occasions as well. These towels can be the generic ones found in most department stores (the most economical) or they may be embroidered with initials or personalized in other ways that make identification easier.
My final idea for shopping here is the lanyard or necklace style key-ring. Useful to nude men as an accessory to keep valuables (auto and house keys and in some cases, phones) secure while socializing clothes-free. These can be found for under $10 and can be personalized by depicting the colors of the rainbow flag, favorite sports teams, etc. Some are available (more expensive) with an attachment that a driver's license and/or credit card can be stored.
Happy shopping! I hope these recommendations are helpful.
It is my intention to feature a handsome and sexy nude each and every month. This is a gay, nudist blog, after all! Of course, this is not the only gay nudist who will be found on this page. Just one that I feel is exceptionally attractive and worthy of this honor.
Truth be told, I find every same gender loving nude man beautiful. The lack of body shame and confidence in our sexuality are two qualities that I think of as admirable in all men. This monthly feature is my way of celebrating all of us.
Colin Black is one of my favorite openly gay performers in the adult entertainment industry. Not only is he generously endowed for his profession, he's a versatile actor who's got terrific skills as both a bottom or a top. Yes, I watch his movies; frequently. He's eye-candy for millions no matter what sexual role he portrays.
I did pause before deciding on this picture with an awesome erection. Then I realized: why not? It's all a part of who we are, right?
