The Body’s Mysterious Secret

anus_157Anuses are part of the body not even nudists often see. They might catch a glimpse of an anus, depending on the anatomical design of a particular individual, when they bend over or lie on their bellies with their legs spread, but our glutes usually keep them hidden even then. Situated between two fleshy butt cheeks, our anus rarely experiences fresh air and sunshine without the assistance of prying fingers, or by positioning our bodies in certain ways.anus_1184 Maybe because anuses are so well hidden is why we are intrigued by them. Maybe we find the human buttocks so provocative and appealing not only because of its delightful shape, but also because we know something taboo or “naughty” is hidden there.anus_1185 Male and female anuses look essentially the same. The distinguishing factors are the distinct male or female shape of the buttocks, and the more abundant hair in most men’s cracks. A woman’s anus is remarkably close to her vulva, whereas an man’s anus and testicles are separated by his perineum.anus_1186 Our anuses maintain a distinct smell, determined by sweat and natural odors that escape from the rectum. Even after a shower these components serve to keep an anus smelling like an anus, which many, including me, believe provide a sexual component. Coupled with pheromones in the sweat, the distinct odor causes your body to have a physical reaction. You will likely be sexually aroused.anus_1187 In time the natural odor produced by your anus will become offensive, especially if you don’t thoroughly clean up after a bowel movement. Most people rely exclusively on toilet tissue, which is better than nothing, but hardly adequate to clean yourself.anus_1188A good practise is to keep a supply of moist towelettes (available at supermarkets, drug stores and places like Walmart) near the toilet. Use them after using the tissue until the towelette remains clean after you wipe. In a public restroom, moisten a paper towel to take into the stall to use when your business is done. You can stay fresh all day with this simple effort.
anus_1189 Better still, install a bidet on your toilet.

a

I purchased one for both of my toilets at Amazon. Under forty dollars, easy to install, easy to use, and they keep you shower-fresh all day. The up-side is you will never smell offensive.anus_1190 Visually the human anus wasn’t designed to inspire us with eye-pleasing beauty. In fact I would bet most people think they look gross, probably because of the anus’s basic function. Though many will refuse to recognize the sexual component of the anus, it’s a part of our body that definitely plays a sexual role. And they aren’t gross. They are one of the most intriguing features of our body. They provide visual stimulation. They are replete with sensitive nerve endings that, with a bit of thoughtful attention, will enhance arousal during foreplay and lovemaking. They add an exciting element to oral sex and intercourse for both men and women. What is more intimate than caressing your lover’s anus with your finger or tongue?anus_1191 One of the intriguing aspects of the human anus is the variations from one person to the next. Like navels, a person can have an “innie” or an “outtie”. The characteristics aren’t feminine or masculine, they simply vary. In both men and women, some anal areas are hairy while others are hairless. Some are nondescript fissures while other are far more dramatic, featuring bold colors, creases, ridges or shadowy openings. Some pucker and pinch together, while others simply sink into a person’s body in the form of a slit.anus_1193 Why is an anus so intriguing? Just look at the guy pictured above, a valley of dramatic pink situated between two pale white cheeks. The contrast is remarkable. the pink matches the color of his scrotum, another eye-catching contrast. The tiny downward creases trailing into a small shadowy hole. If that’s not anatomical mystery, what is? If that’s not an intimate visual, what is? The only question is does his partner have the imagination to enjoy it, to explore it, to make it part of their intimacy?anus_1194As the picture above illustrates, part of the anus’s intrigue is its proximity to a person’s sex organs. It’s down there close, adding to menu of sexual activity, adding its characteristic smell to the mix. Just as in the animal world, what the smells that go through our noses are powerful aphrodisiacs.

anus_177And there is the naughty factor. Assholes, looking at them, touching them, sniffing them is generally considered naughty, and most of us have a naughty streak that surfaces from time to time. But then sometimes it’s fun and harmless to be naughty.anus_150So enjoy the pictures. Perhaps create a fantasy or two about what you would like to do with your lover. Maybe get a mirror out and have a good look at your own, even do a little experimenting. After all, there is a great variety of adult toys designed for anal pleasure, either alone or with your partner.anus_1196 .

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Most of us will do a double-take when we glimpse a shapely ass from the corner of our eye. But do we give much thought to what those fleshy cheeks are hiding? Assholes . . . the one physical feature men and women have in common, the one feature that belies gender more than any other body part, the one feature that is rarely seen, even in nudists parks. Perhaps this is why anuses lend mystery to those shapely buns and make them so appealing. Perhaps you are one of the lucky ones that have gotten past the social taboos and have discovered the joys and pleasures your anus can give you.

Lay a mirror on the floor. Squat over it and check out your anus’s personality. Darker down there, isn’t it, you may see shades of red or pink or brown. Give it a little attention. Maybe a caress with your finger. Stroke it or let your finger slip in just a bit. Now you know how your lover will feel when you do that to him or her. Just use your imagination and open a new door next time the two of you are in bed.

Good Parts/Bad Parts

From Young Naturists America

By Melissa Starr

My friend, Hadassah, has elbows. I’ve always assumed this but only a short time ago did I see her elbows for the first time to prove that she does have them. It’s funny that we’ve known each other for 14 years yet it was only recently that I saw her elbows. Why did this happen? Hadassah is of the Orthodox Jewish faith, which dictates that her whole body, including elbows and knees, must be covered. I guess she joined a more moderate branch of Judaism recently, as her elbows can now be seen. This is a huge change for her- and for me, as I look at her elbows for the first time.

For Hadassah, exposing her elbows was a breach of modesty, as seen by her faith. Her religious beliefs had more emphasis on which body parts are acceptable to see and show, perhaps, than most people’s beliefs, but how different are they from modern culture, really? While most people in the USA would agree that having people see your elbows is fine (and you may get some funny faces if you suggest otherwise!), how many people have that same good part/ bad part response when talking about… a woman’s pubic mound/ labia majora? Or a penis? Or a woman’s breast?

These body parts are the parts that are so sacred/ private/ obscene/ bad that they have many, many names. A penis could be a dick and may have a name, the labia majora may be called a crotch, and a woman’s breast might be called a boob. Even the grouping of the parts has a name: our private parts or, as some kids say, our privates. Of course, we all know numerous other names for all these parts and many parents teach their children to call them some off-the-wall names. And don’t even get me started on what we call the urine or feces that come out of these parts! All of this begs the question of why certain body parts have numerous names and are “forbidden” while other parts only have one name and get no attention. Think of the poor Continue reading

Ladies … Take Your Clothes Off (Body Acceptance)

Have you gotten a little thicker around the middle, maybe a lot thicker? Are your hips too wide or is your butt too big? Do you have a few wrinkles here and there? Are your breasts too small, or are they large and sagging? Is your pubic area too hairy or are your labia protruding? Well, since you are very much like most women, you are a perfect candidate for nude socializing.

Or maybe you have always taken care of yourself. You walk, jog and exercise. You always watch calories and eat the right foods. If you are young, you now and then turn heads. If you are older, you may have a few stretch marks, or a scar from your cesarean incision, or you may have a few a few wrinkles or varicose veins. You still look pretty good for your age, but no one ever sees just how beautiful you are, nor do you see them.

You grew up in a home where everyone always wore clothes. Since then you have lived in a society that has subtly and overtly convinced you the human body is shameful and must never be exposed, not so much as a nipple and certainly not the private parts between your legs. It’s time to think all of this through. It’s time to let go of all those inhibitions and get out of your clothes.

I was fortunate enough to come across this piece on social nudity that was written by a woman. I don’t think she would mind if I share it with you.

Body Acceptance

 By Heather F.

How do you feel about your body? If you’re like the overwhelming majority of people in American society, then you probably would use some of the following statements to describe yourself: I’m too fat, too skinny, too big, too small, not muscular enough. The bottom line is you’re not happy with how you look.

Unfortunately, these statements about our bodies are all too often commonly held views in not only the overwhelming majority of American society, but increasingly in other societies where a diversity of body types, shapes and sizes are often celebrated. These views stem partly from a steady diet of images on TV and in the magazines that we read where bodies are always in “perfect shape.” We are told and made to believe that this is what we have to look like in order to be accepted, to be beautiful or handsome. While many of us acknowledge that we could never achieve this model of “perfection” we still act as if we can attain perfection, if only we’d try harder. Sadly, we have as a society become so paranoid and obsessive about our looks and our bodies that we don’t know whether to hide it or show it off, to be proud of it or to be ashamed of it. So just what are the factors that affect our acceptance of our bodies, what is body acceptance, and why is it so important, and how is body acceptance linked to naturism.

When I first met my husband, George, back in 1998, it would be more than accurate to say that I struggled with the way I looked. The first three lines of this page would describe me perfectly back then. I struggled with acceptance of my body and by extension myself for multiple reasons. First and foremost I saw all these women and girls around me on TV and in the magazines I read and looked at that looked like models. 5’8” to 5’11”, 110 to 115 pounds, large breasts, small hips and waist, and a tight little butt; everyone around me, the other girls at school, the characters in the programs I watched on TV, and even society as a whole held – and still holds – these images up as what I had to look like to be beautiful, to get a guy, to be one of the popular girls.

Then there was the teasing, the snide comments and remarks about my appearance and my body by my family and some of my so-called friends. Combine these things together and it’s no wonder I was struggling with body acceptance, or that females in general have such problems with body acceptance.

However, these problems are not just limited to females; males struggle with this too. Many males (writing with my husband’s help here for the male’s view) feel that they have to be muscular, thin, and without an inch of Continue reading
