Male Nudity Can’t be Beautiful….Right?

I come across this artistic nude today and found it to be quite thought provoking. It’s not a naturist photo. Many would say it’s more sexual than anything. Not my thing usually. I’d rather see a 50-yr old couple out hiking nude than a 21-year old nude Adonis. But that’s ok. I’ve got a point here. I was struck with how beautiful it was but juxtaposed that with how many people would find it otherwise. Some might balk at the nudity, others would find it displeasurable since it shows a mans penis, others because the mans penis is semi-erect. I find all three of those objections completely absurd. I’m not saying people aren’t entitled to them, I just can’t identify with them at all.  

It is beautiful. It’s a fact.

Female nudity is so much more accepted than the male. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a longtime fan of female nudity. The nude female form is stunning. However, to see one nude gender as graceful, angelic, artistic, and 1,000 more positive descriptors, while viewing the other gender in the complete opposite manner, doesn’t make sense to me. 

Breakdown the barriers. Call a spade a spade. Be honest. It’s beautiful.  

My personal growth as a naturist has enabled me to come to be much more open and accepting about the beauty in both genders. It has nothing to do with sexuality. It’s simply a willingness to see beauty rather than denying it as a fact and truth. I think women evolved to this position much much sooner than men. Most women can see a nude woman and easily find beauty, even enjoyment in her nudity. Men….well, doing likewise with a nude man, and openly admitting it, is still a leap for us. Come on dudes…..lets keep evolving shall we?

So yes, a male nude, semi erect penis and all, can be beautiful. And yes, a heterosexual naturist man can say that.

  2. What difference does it make? When you break the sex-nakedness relationship, you embrace beauty where it is. As a matter of fact there are many Greek and Roman statues of naked men that are art. Sure, there are sexual pictures and they are made such by the photographer. I’m straight and to me nudity and art have nothing with sexual orientation. A naked man or woman can be art and beautiful. If you reduce a man to his penis or a woman to her breast, then you continue reinforcing the link between sex and nakedness, not seeing the real beauty of the human being. Nudity is awesome and sex is in the eye of the beholder. My 2 naked cents.


  3. I’ve never been anything other than a red-blooded, heterosexual male.

    I think that if you can’t see the beauty in a well-crafted male nude, then you’re uncomfortable with your own sexuality.

    I agree with you, there’s nothing that tops a beautiful, non-pornographic, artistic female nude. That hardly means that male nudes cannot be beautiful as well for its own set of unique reasons. For one, in this picture, I appreciate the artistic beauty of a well toned, athletic nude male, exhibiting a large, mostly erect penis that screams unwavering confidence in his powerful masculinity.

    • Getting past stereotypes and labels is difficult for many men. Simple because of our proclivity for enjoying the nude state and getting past simply the sexual aspects, naturists seem more open to the process. I can definitely see links between my naturist evolution and my acceptance and enjoyment of male nudity just as much as female nudity.

    • You’re exactly right. This pic draws your eyes immediately to his penis. However, shouldn’t the beauty of the penis be appreciated and enjoyed just as much as the rest of his body ??

      • It’s sad that we live in a time when our society and our media and entertainment industries have made the nude male a taboo and only show a nude male or a penis for a laugh line or moment of silly humor. This is really quite wrong and disturbing. The one thing they all seem to forget is, that all life passes through a penis, the should love it and embrace it for the miracle it is.
