You Should Know It Means Something

For some people the gift of their sexuality is some more valuable than a diamond! It is something they were given at birth, taught to cherish and treasure for years, and have decided to hold on to for very personal reasons! So take a moment to consider their decision and effort BEFORE getting into an intimate situation!

If you view human sexuality differently, then I suggest this might be enough to “just be friends” instead of pressuring someone into having sex - and under NO circumstance is it EVER acceptable to get someone drunk and take advantage of their vulnerable state of being.

Come on, would you want some to treat your sister, mother, aunt or daughter that way?!? No. I think not.

Your time in school, over the Summer, at camp, on vacation or at college SHOULD BE a special time full of learning and excitement! Do not ruin it for someone and give them a horrible, frightening memory - BE NICE! You only get one chance to be someone’s Knight in shining armor or Prince Charming!

Naturism: The ultimate way to unplug!

Naturism: The ultimate way to unplug!

VH1’s Dating Naked has a special episode on right now!

The VH1 cable network is airing a special episode tonight, right now, for one of the couples to have a “Love ceremony” (a.k.a. commitment ceremony) and many of the other couples who met on the show are BACK for this event/episode.  It definitely seems to be worth watching and there are many nude people on the show tonight - far more than any other episode!  Whether you are curious about socializing in the nude, are proficient at socializing in the nude, or LIVE every day in the buff, this particular episode is worth watching.

Nude is good

One blue ball and one orange ball.  This could be a problem!

First - Nice blog! Second - How did you get the reply box to show up on your post about "Too Many Pictures"? Third - Tumblr really is mostly about sharing photos. I guess the idea is to tell your story mostly without words, but it would be nice if it were easier to give feedback to the people that are posting.

northwest-nudist:

I ended my post with a question and checked the box allow responses. 

Tumblr people that limit themselves to only reposting captionless pictures are missing at least half the fun.

The face (and full body) of nude concentration.  Simply; because being naked does not inhibit us from doing anything we would ordinarily do.

I love that you can see the photographer is nude as well. As it should be. 

Technology, once released into the “wild”, takes on a life of its own - finds new purpose and uses.  What is this process called?  Anyone?  I believe it may be called, "Social adaptation" or "Social adaptation of technology".
I think of it in terms of temptation (sort of).  What is with all the “tation” words tonight?  It is like the old saying about not being able to trust a kid in a candy store; well, that may be true but is it “giving in” to a temptation or simply finding new ways to enjoy it, use it and express our human essence with it?
If the same group of candy kids was placed in a room with nothing but a camera and told to use it however they wished, how long would it take them to begin undressing and taking pictures?  Especially if they had no experience with nudity, but were told a few basic things about the camera’s operation.
Would the temptation to take whatever kind of photographs they wished lead to "discovery" or exploration of nude photography?  Would they be inhibited by social conditioning?  Would telling them nobody else would view the printed photographs EXCEPT the participants in the room make a difference? - I believe there are all sorts of potential outcomes to this scenario!
Today, we have the rise of the "Selfie" and the word has been granted official status by way of inclusion on at least one major lexicon of language and definitions.  Hurray!  Only it is not a new concept by any means!  People have quite literally been experimenting with self-photography for generations.
Now we know people have also loved taking photographs of themselves doing just about everything imaginable for many years, and the evidence of this is all around us!  Are we to be condemned for it?  Is the taking of self portraits the height of vanity and self-indulgence?  Or are we perhaps seeking to confirm something of our own existence?
Finally, please also consider “Why nudes?”  What makes this a special sort of photography for us?  Where is the deeper meaning of it, and is it more than just something we do for fun? - To me that is a tough question to answer.  A philosophical question and a contemplative question - because you do realize there are people in the world that believe capturing an image of the nude self on film is probably an offense to God.  An act worthy of being stoned to death over.  Seriously.
In the end we are not here forever, we are but delicate creatures of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and various trace metals.  I believe we are not angels or demons, not saints or sinners, just people - something in between the “good” and “evil” extremes.  And if this is what we are, if this is ALL we are, can we not find a common ground upon which all innocent behavior is worthy of acceptance?  All exploration, all discovery, and most experimentation is simply a means of searching for meaning - purpose - and justification for being.

mikeymcmichaels:

Reminded about this video earlier tonight, but I had no followers when I first posted it. Hope you like it.

Musical instrument trivia:

I listened to this so many times while editing it I realized be bass is recorded through a leslie, and that’s the little noise you hear during the break after the solo.

Awesome!!!  In the interest of equality, it would be great to see a companion video with muscular guys set to Jimi Hendrix’ “Voodoo Chile" or another classic rock anthem! … Well, ya have to do something for the male-seeking audience.
