However, they are going to happen dispite everyone’s efforts to prevent them because a lot of us are still making the transition from the fabric lifestyle. Male physiology makes it impossible for a man to remain fully flaccid throughout the day.
Most considerate guests at a beach or resort are really embarrased by erections and are asking for ideas on this newsgroup about how to prevent them and how to gracefully make your way out when they do happen. A lot of us who are a newcomer to this life would likewise enjoy some reassurance that the problem will diminish with time and better comprehension.
A G string isn’t an acceptable alternative. Complete nudity is the standard state for guys as well as girls. We must learn new thinking and behavior, not go back to the textile world’s manner of viewing things. I’ve never seen male G strings for sale anywhere. Even if I could locate one, I’d not wear it. Many naturists and fairminded cloth people would consider it more sexually provocative than mere innocent nudity.
A libertine or an exhibitionist may sometimes wander into a nudist crowd, but I’m not talking about them. Most naturists desire such people evicted from polite society.
I do consider it is useful to discuss etiquette and basic biology.
I wish I’d learned a few of these lessons when I was a boy, perhaps of russian family nudists . It’s not rational for children to suffer in ignorance and silence because grownups are too embarassed to talk about the facts of life and about basic nudist etiquette, even the less delicate subjects.
It’s been implied that a public forum is inappropriate for such candid discussions, because kids may stumble upon it. I hope that parents and teachers are closely monitoring the Internet usage of children and providing some guidance to teenagers. I steadfastly believe that at some age, maybe middle school, boys and girls must be reading the kind of info in this newsgroup and have their parents there to guide them through these issues that they’ll shortly be faced with at the cusp of adolescence. To support my contention, I have to call attention to the fact that INA has created a thread specifically to discuss issues such as this.
To GalSurfer: I am especially concerned concerning the sensibilities of the female contributors to this forum. I would like to assure you that I ‘m opposed to sexual “flaunting” as you set it, because it is demeaning and intimidating to those people who are compelled to put up with it. I believe some of us made a poor choice of words by saying “arousal” without quickly explaining that in its mildest form, it might not be perceptible to the casual observer. I do not understand any men of good will who would not immediately pull away from public view if matters took a turn for the worse. If any readers do not understand how to act, this newsgroup can help immediately bring “newbie” behaviour in line with our community’s standards. Better to learn it here than on the beach!
