My Erection Positivity

Disclaimer: This blog post contains nude photos that show my erect penis and may not be suitable for all audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.

There was a time, being the nudist that I am, where I would freely share in my Snapchat Stories photos and/or videos of my nude-self and of my nudist lifestyle. This, of course, was before Snapchat changed their community guidelines in order to make their platform advertiser-friendly, which essentially restricted nudity. Now, I like to say that advertisers ruin everything, but I also do understand that in order to make money and stay afloat, Snapchat had no choice.

One of my many ”Playgirl Style” Snaps

Naturally, I do chat with friends on Snapchat, or send to them normal Snaps that do not contain any nudity. To be clear, I’ve never sent to anybody an unsolicited nude pic, or what is commonly known as a ”dick pic”. Although I have received plenty from men who were most likely ignorant of the fact that I am heterosexual, or who may have thought that a picture of their penis alone constitutes some type of photographic masterpiece.

And as a heterosexual male, of course, I would have preferred to receive this type of content from women. But as the lyrics go to the Rolling Stones song ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’, well, precisely that: ”you can’t always get what you want (…) LOL!

Now, when I would share anything on Snapchat that involved nudity, it would be to my Snapchat Story, for my friends and followers to view if they chose to do so. In other words, if they consented. Because one has to explicitly choose to consume a Snapchat Story, and they have the option to leave it and stop viewing it at any time. Furthermore, I would also add a disclaimer at the beginning of each Story stating that viewer discretion is advised.

A ”Playgirl Style” Snap with my erection on display

For those of you reading this who have never used Snapchat, a Snapchat Story is a collection of ephemeral photos or videos not longer than 10 seconds that are viewable to your followers for a period of 24 hours before they disappear forever.

For me, and pretty much all nudists, there is nothing inherently sexual about simple human nudity. And this is precisely the attitude I conveyed when sharing my nude-self and my nudist lifestyle in my Snapchat Stories. In other words, my penis was always flaccid in any photo or video that I posted. Because as a nudist living a nudist lifestyle, that is usually the state of affairs. As in, nudists simply don’t spend the day wandering around with a full-blown erection, if that were even possible.

In fact, for any male considering giving nudism a first-time try at a nudist resort or beach, the most asked question usually revolves around the possibility of getting an erection while naked in front of everybody. And the answers to that question, depending on who it’s coming from, is that erections rarely happen when naked in front of others, that erections are normal and healthy, that one can simply cover themselves with a towel, or if on the beach, that one can lie down on their stomach to hide it until it goes away. In my view, these answers are all correct.

From personal experience, the only time that I got an erection while naked in public was on the beach in Spain. I was skinny dipping in the comfortably warm summer water and when I began to exit the water, a young woman on the beach placed herself directly before my line of exit, watching attentively and with interest as the sight of my penis was slowly revealed into full view the further I made my way from deep to shallow water.

Adding to this was the warmth of the summer sun hitting my wet body, and voilà, it was the perfect recipe for my first-time experience of getting an erection while naked in public. In this case, I quickly made my way to my beach towel and laid down on my stomach to hide it until it subsided.

On the other hand, I’ve never had an erection while naked in public at the many events I’ve attended such as the World Naked Bike Ride, Strip Karaoke, the Toronto Pride Parade, and the nude 2012 protest in Montreal against the increase of University tuition fees. [You can read more about that naked protest here].

In fact, whenever I’m naked in public I seem to experience some type of psychological phenomenon that causes my penis to shrink a little. And that is precisely why I have a love-hate relationship with my penis. At home when I’m all alone, he likes to ”hang” just fine. But once in public he all of a sudden suffers from a mild case of shyness and decides that he would have preferred to have been born a turtle instead. LOL!

Alright. Now back to Snapchat. Almost every time that I would post nude content to my Story, somebody would ask me if the next time I could show my erect penis, or send to them directly a Snap of it. I would always answer that sharing my erection was a line that I would never cross and that my erect penis was intimately reserved for my girlfriend and I (even if I’ve been single for ages, LOL).

I would also add in my reply to them, that as a nudist, being naked was in no way sexual and that sharing a Snap of my erect penis would indeed sexualize my otherwise simple nudity.

Sharing my very first ”Playgirl Style” Snap without a face filter

Then one day, most likely out of sheer boredom, I decided to see what would happen if I tried to apply a Snapchat face filter to my erect penis using the Snapchat camera. Funnily, Snapchat detected my penis head as being a face and applied the Dog Filter to both it and to my actual real face.

I thought this was quite funny and decided that maybe it was worth sharing after all. After some hesitation, I finally took the risk and did it. I posted it to my Snapchat Story, and finally crossed that line I had always said I would never cross. I have to admit though, it was extremely liberating. I think that this is due in part to the fact that I am not entirely satisfied with the look, shape or size of my erect penis, as is the case for many men. We all want better, although, in the end, our penises are perfectly normal and pretty much similar to others. Again, the fact that I was able to share this part of me, despite my perceived shortcomings, was extremely liberating.

Here is the original Snap with the Dog Face Filter applied to both my face and to my penis:

The very first Snap I ever posted of my erect penis. And Snapchat decided that my penis is a Dalmatian! LOL!

Not only was it extremely liberating because I finally had the confidence and courage to share myself this way, without any fear or body shame, but it was also extremely liberating because of the many positive comments from my Snapchat followers that would ensue.

This led me to produce and share more of this style of content, albeit not using the Dog Filter, but instead applying more often than not the Playgirl logo to these photos.

Producing and sharing this content led me to believe that if I had had the same confidence to share myself this way when I was younger and in my prime, that just maybe I could have been a model for Playgirl magazine. It’s too late for that now. But, it’s never too late to live the dream by posting my old ”Playgirl Style” Snaps on this blog, right?

As one of my Snapchat followers said at the time, sharing this type of content is ”great for #erectionpositivity”. And I think that he summed it up pretty well with that hashtag, as indeed, having and sharing your erection, despite how taboo it may be, is indeed a positive feat. At least for me, it is.

Simply put, an erect penis is nothing to be ashamed of if displayed in an appropriate context. And those who answer the oft-asked question by those wanting to give nudism a try for the very first time—that an erection is part of the natural, normal, functioning of the male human body—are in my view 100% entirely correct.

That is why I decided to share some of my old ”Playgirl” style Snaps in this blog post, and to talk about my experience sharing such a personal and intimate part of me. An experience that has once again, in the end, been very liberating.

Now, thinking back to my erection experience while naked on that beautiful beach in Spain, I can’t help but think that maybe I should have accepted the natural state of affairs and not ran to lie stomach first on my beach towel in an attempt to hide what is otherwise a natural part of the human body. Or maybe I did the right thing by staying polite and reserved? What do you think? Would you have done the same as me?

        Just stumbled across your blog.. a couple of remarks.. First, let’s get “I’m an old Homo” out of the way.. sorry.. Second, you have a beautiful penis, relaxed or erect, and a beautiful scrotum. Which brings us to number Three… It’s your scrotum that wrinkles, not your “testicles” (and it’s a nice full bag, my friend).. and Four.. How “testes” evolved into “testicles” is a mystery to me..but that’s what they are. I’m not a nudist but how many times have I wished I could just run the recycle out here at the condo complex without getting dressed.. I live at SeaTac and don’t know what the nude laws are but in Seattle, it’s not illegal to be naked in public as long as you’re not annoying anyone. And one more thing.. please reconsider the manscaping… we’re SUPPOSED to be hairy down there.. Thanks ! Phil

    This the old damned if you do and damned if you don’t show it situation. We can never please all. The fact is many people don’t want to see a man’s penis at all, especially an erect one since it’s often viewed incorrectly as a dangerous weapon about to cause sexual harm. The penis has been villainized and criminalized for far too long. When in fact the penis should be celebrated for the wonderful organ it is and the function it performs, afterall, all life passes through one. When men are nude any erections should be considered as normal and enjoyed as a wonderful aspect of the nude male form. There are countless men who would love to openly display their erect penises, it is the pride and joy of these men. Then there are the men who for various reasons that can not achieve an erection. Many of these men enjoy seeing the erections of others.

    So in our view the photos (your’s) are well done and if opportunities arise for you to publicly share with others what you have shared with us, you should by all means feel proud and liberated to do just that. Proudly display what God has given you.

      Thank you for the thoughtful comment. You are right about the way most societies have been educated to view a man’s penis, especially when erect.

      I think that there are certain places, however, like in Japan, where the penis is celebrated through such things as the Penis festival. Of course, this festival doesn’t happen every day, but it’s a step in the right direction. At the same time, Japan can be very conservative with a somewhat repressed culture regarding sexuality. So even there, in most circumstances, an erect penis in public would be taboo.

      I am glad, however, that I decided to go ahead and share what I’ve shared today on my blog. For me personally, it is a step in the right direction, for I will not be able to share such things when one day I am no longer here.

      Again, thank you for your thoughtful comment and for always being so supportive! 🙂

    Jade—I was excited to see that your Naked Persona has returned! The forever travels and textile postings has me worried that something had happened and the Naked Jade had to go underground. So glad that’s not the case!

    You touched on so many subjects that I have issues/concerns with. I think one of my bothersome issues deals with my fellow gay men. Making comments with total disregard to any public decorum. Just because you post your naked penis, along with the rest of the Naked You, that gives them the right to overtly make sexual remarks. TBH, I didn’t know you were straight until one comment you made. But, I believe that all comments should remain respectful and devoid of debased verbiage. As a life-long nudist, I respect a line, regardless of sexual orientation. Common courtesies!

    To the subject at hand; dealing with the Erection. That has always been a huge taboo subject in the Naturist Community. The mere presence of an erect penis automatically makes the situation a sexual one. (?). WRONG! It should be celebrated! It’s what you *do* with it that makes it sexual or normal or beautiful!

    Back 2011 I went to a nudist resort in the Dominican Republic. I remember walking alone down the empty beach feeling amazing. And then was fully hard. Walking all alone on a stunning beach with my little man at full attention felt beyond fabulous in the breeze and ocean spray. This would have never happened if I wasn’t by myself on this beach and felt the freedom not to be judged by my naked peers.

    I’m torn. The general public cannot separate the penis from having sex. Much less an erect one ready to impale the next hole it finds. Therefore, it undermines the public acceptance of social nudity. So, until minds change, my little man will have to only swing to the south. And if I don’t accept others having an erection in public I’m a prude! (Me?)

    I live next to Miami’s Haulover Beach. The neighboring communities want this urban oasis closed! And they use sexual deprivity and activities as a catalyst to do so. Therefore, the years of hard work to have access to this public amenity and preaching that “Nude Is Not Lewd” is completely undermined and tossed aside by a selfish few. Thus my being torn.

    Anyway—great to see all you and your beautiful body in is naked glory. Looking forward to the next post! It’s summer… GO FORTH NAKED!

    Naked hugs, Preston

      Apologies for the delay of my reply as I was preoccupied with work related stuff and couldn’t answer right away.

      I think that your comment could be a blog post in and of itself. It is a great read. You summed up very well many aspects and issues surrounding nudism and the question of erections while practicing nudism, especially effects to the overall nudist community and how we are perceived.

      Again, your comment was a great read! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on my blog post! 😃👍🏼

    It happened to me, to have an erection in nudist beach and hide it too.
    It generates perplexity, because it feels good to have an erection, but not in public.
    But for a nudist it is important not to be confused with sexual exhibitions.
    Time later I found a website in Colombia, where it is proposed to normalize them.
    With numerous arguments, basically because they are part of the masculine nature, and nature can not be denied.
    It is argued that it is not the same to let see something that naturally occurs, that presumes and exaggerates.
    The society and the nudist associations are called “phalofobic”

      The limit is the erection. And it must be prudent, so as not to fall into the exhib.
      Not every erection is exhib, as not all nudists are exhib. But some yes.
      If you are exhib, if your goal is sexual, I consider that you can not call yourself a nudist / naturist

        You are correct. Having an erection at a nudist beach or resort could be seen as natural, although more often than not folks will view it as sexual. That is why walking around ejaculating everywhere in front of everyone would not be seen as natural or normal. It would be seen as entirely 100% sexual.

        As I’ve mentioned in my recent blog posts, I would have liked to pose for Playgirl magazine, which at the time of its existence showcased the natural male human body including the natural male erection. What Playgirl did not do is showcase men ejaculating. And that is why, unless I was working as a ‘Waiter without Pants’ for Bachelorette parties (see my recent blog post about that) and it was specifically requested, you will never see me anywhere ejaculating at a nude beach or resort, or in any of my Playgirl style photos.

        The few men who request this of me are looking for hardcore porn, and there is plenty of that on the internet if they need to easily find it. Personally, I’m not in the business of producing hardcore porn for men, especially considering that I am heterosexual.

        Thank you for your thoughtful comment!

    thanks for the response – I’m actually not looking for hardcore porn, i am genuinely interested in seeing ejaculation from you as an extension of the normalised erection, especially as its masturbation month. I like the abstract idea of a regular person sharing their orgasm in that way.

    I had meant to thank you for this post, really appreciate the positive attitude about erections. As an older guy struggling with ED, I don’t get to enjoy mine much these days, but do believe that erections are beautiful, worthy of public attention, etc. It is a natural part of who we are as men, and should not be a source of shame at all (even when they happen at inconvenient moments). Again, thank you for letting it all hang out there!
