Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Life is good

As long as we’re talking about sexuality, let’s not forget the other half of the species.

It’s hard to find modern examples of the nude male form in art and photography that aren’t overtly homosexual. Particularly those that show a phallus. Now we know that women aren’t usually impressed by the sight of a phallus. Women are geared more towards touch than sight.

It doesn’t help that American culture has some significant hang-ups about male homosexuality in general. It’s so bad that casual gestures and behaviors from the early 20th Century can look questionable. “Does this make me look gay?” is pretty common these days.

Practically the only time an erect phallus is shown in art these days is in works aimed at gays. Third wave feminists have a lot to answer for.

Obviously this is a satyr and over endowed. He’s both male and he’s masturbating which is a big FORBIDDEN in American culture today. He doesn’t care. He’s following his animal nature.

Plus he’s having way too much fun.

But what I want to point out is how this work emphasizes the phallus and it’s magickal nature. Not as an instrument of destruction, but as a generative organ. Something that can help bring new life. Something that gives and receives pleasure. Granted, this one is a bit too self-focused. Masturbation shouldn’t replace regular sex with another.

It’s one thing to show pictures of naked women even when the pictures get pretty carnal. We can kid ourselves and say it is artistic. But when it comes to pictures of naked men with an erect phallus, why, that’s just “obscene.”

It’s not. It’s nature. The human form is wonderful. Sex can be joyful and push you well beyond your boundries.

Life is good.

I’m a naturist in both senses of the word. Life doesn’t always need clothes. I admire the human body. I hope you can too.
