A context nudge on the Nook
Posted on June 17, 2013
This is an open reminder to people that the Naktiv site is NOT a traditional naturist site, although we have many naturist members. The Naktiv site IS a safe place where we can discuss issues relating to nudity, (and mostly anything else), and a place where it's ok to post naked imagery which might INCLUDE naturist shots and World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) photos and Art and documentary images.
This is NOT a place for inane cock-shots, or look at me standing naked with a stiffy in my bathroom photos, or I have two dickheads images. Get a grip, choose some INTERESTING material and post that instead. Do try to think naked and active, or naked and protest related, or nudity and theatre content, or nude art, or naturist event activities, or something topical.
Context is often important. A guy sitting on a deckchair with his legs wide apart and the camera sitting between his knees looking up at his cock is probably only interesting to gays, (if at all). If you are a guy trying to attract girls, you are going about it WRONG.
A couple, (of whatever inclination), sitting across a table from one another and gazing into each others eyes in the sunset, one gets a warm fuzzy feeling of the intimacy from the context. A photo of a naked protester cycling through the middle of the busy city streets of a capital city in an environmental protest, this is impressive public context and a lifestyle statement.
We have a mission statement which you might like to read. The internet is a powerful medium, which we can contribute positively to, if we choose. Think about what you post, and where, the message you are trying to send, and the appropriate context.
