There’s never enough coverage in regards to men actually freely expressing that they want to be accepted as OK with having erections on open Naked Day Events, such as WNBR, anywhere on Earth. I have uncontrolled bouts of full on hard and long lasting erections. But does this mean too though that both organisers and spectators/other riders are going to consider me a Sexual Attacker. (see image below of another rider erect – example only). And why do I have to go into cover-up mode and or pull out of the event because of my natural disposition, its a natural erection, not a preorganised sexual attack on anyone – I shouldn’t have to and or embarrassingly explain myself in a defensive spotlight. Most people need to know that not all erections pose women, children or other men sexual threats or are some kind of deviately deliberate exhibitionistic, behaviour (really?).
In my case it is actually natural. Or should I take offence at the naturally larger endowed men lording it about proudly, or huge silicone enhanced breasts, or heaven forbid other women complaining about their own gender for having extra huge lipped vaginas on the ride, just like the men I’ve heard it from the women as well – yes really! What is sexual behaviour anyway, for once someone clear up the difference for those who can’t work it out, and just let me ride and nature take its course.Aj Harvey
This infuriates me to no end! I truly wish nudist culture treated erections as a fact of life for nudity and left it at that as long as someone is not pushing his/her genitals (uninvited) at another it is utterly MAD to make a fuss *against* one having an erection and screams of hypocrisy.
1) The argument that it is natural IS the truth. I do not need sexual stimulation/inspiration to get an erection. Just being naked can cause it. Just because others do not respond the same, does not make me “messed up”.
2) Telling me it is threatening is effectively the same as telling me that being male is barely acceptable. So WRONG!
3) Lets go as far as to address the sexual side — GUESS WHAT? People ARE sexual and that is GOOD. Forcing *actions* onto others is NOT GOOD. Clothed or unclothed, sexual reaction happen and it is beyond LUDICROUS that somehow when nudists congregate, the sexual reactions/elements/attraction etc. should be turned off when it is absolutely not for all the rest of the clothed world any of the time. This very philosophy they espouse makes their “mainstream” nudist philosophy that is supposedly celebrating what is “most natural” even more unnatural or similarly unnatural to textile living.
Condemning erections is logically and ethically dishonest and frankly hateful. IT IS DAMAGING to men. Those who do not see this (including men who simply do not respond as sensitively (non-sexual arousal) or who have sadly de-sexualized (blocked out responding in a normal way to someone beautiful) themselves are denying nature, hurting truth, and sadly making sexual nature an ugly thing… Again – NO ONE should consider a visible erection in a nudist setting harmful — it is ACTIONS toward another that should carry the potential to be equated to offense.
Sorry, but this subject hurts and it is a truly tragic and ugly that having an erection even remotely marginalized among nudists. It is as if so many want to dip their foot in the “natural” side, but do not want to really leave the lies of the textile side (even though they are allowed to have erections at random times and actually for sexual reasons). I guess women with protruding labia minora are overly sexual and if they lay down with legs even slightly open, they are being unnaturally predatorial… NOPE – they aren’t – and neither is they guy who has an erection but is not doing anything else to anyone!B Gudman
If you are erect in a naked place, you will be asked to cover it. Don’t try to understand society, it is messed up. Erections are a very natural reflex, it is not necessarily connected to a strong sexual stimulus. We have erections in our sleep, even without a deeply erotic dream. Men (and women) are first and foremost biological entities and a lot of things happen in our body that we do not consciously control. An erection is natural and should be explained as such. If I see a man next to me with an erection, I don’t see him as a predator, I just feel that is a man who is having a happy moment in his body.Babas
If I’m naked, I’m at least semi-hard, just natural as you said. If it’s a naked event, or get together, or just hanging out with friends, it is what it is. Just ride your bike, flaccid, semi or fully hard, dripping precum (I do damn near constantly when naked) or whatever, it’s all natural. If someone has a problem, it’s theirs, not yours. Stay free, free ball or naked as much as possible and enjoy your body, and let others enjoy, too!ManPitLover
