One of the good things about being a naturist is there are no unacceptable nude photos in our books. We accept the human body in any shape, colour and size and it doesn't matter if there are scars or amputations or deformities of any kind. Those who know me should know that I'm quite open about posting my own nude pics and I do so freely. But there is a group of photos of mine that I am embarrassed about and would never post them online. No, I haven't undergone any surgery and I don't have any deformity that I know of. This can happen at any time of the day or night and it certainly happens quite consistently when I'm asleep or when I've just woken up. And most naturists agree that such photos are unacceptable.
I'm talking about the erect penis. Everyone knows that an erect penis does not necessarily have to be related to any sexual activity. I'm not a medical doctor but I'm sure any doctor will tell you that every man wakes up with an erection. But it is considered inappropriate to expose the erect penis in naturist resorts and in photos posted on naturist sites. You can search through all the photos I've posted on this site and on other naturist websites and I assure you there is not a single photo in which there is the slightest hint of an erection. I'm very careful about weeding out such embarrassing photos.
But lately, I'm beginning to ask myself if I'm imposing an unnecessary taboo on nude photos. An erection can be as natural as nudity itself. And since I'm one who is always snapping photos and selfies, it's not surprising that some of my pics will also include such taboo photos. I will dutifully remove any such pic before posting them online. And the truth is I'm embarrassed of them.
I wonder if there are other naturists who feel the same way. Are we being natural or will there one day come a different generation of naturists who are truly unembarrassed about anything related to the human body?
