  • Natural body responses

    I have been surfing the net, reading some nudist message board sites. Penis erection seems to be a major concern of many new male nudist.

    What I find interesting is that I have yet to come across any female concerns regarding their natural body responses. For instance, when I jump into the pool at my friend's house, the water seems quiet chilly and sometimes downright cold. It takes me a bit to become adjusted to the water temperature. Of course, in the meantime, my skin reacts to it. A universal female response to cold temperature is seen with the breasts. My aerola become puckered, and the nipples then become more erect/pointed. I don't feel the need to cover up my breasts because my nipples are reacting to the temperature change. I have never noticed any women complaining about this as a problem (which really isn't, as far as I am concerned), or feeling the need to cover up. It's a natural response, just like your skin turning red if it is burned.

    Now, you guys may say that the difference is that an erection is a sign of sexual arousal, and you are trying to be polite and not draw attention to yourselves. But, in all honesty, nipple erection in a women can also indicate sexual arousal. Nipple erection can draw attention to the breasts.

    Point is, that these are just normal body responses, and unless someone is actively oggling someone else, acting in a lude manner through speech or behavior, I would say not to worry about it. It simply means that we are all humans and responsive to our environment.

    I, personally, am happy that I can respond to my environment. If I couldn't. . . . well. . . . . .time for a funeral.

          Erections are not free from outside influence. You very rarely see them in social nudist venues because it is socially unacceptable to strut around with one and the mind tells an impending erection to halt and it does!

          We have more control of our bodies than you allow.

            You rarely see then in non-nudist settings either - the two exceptions being during sex and when viewing pornographic material.

              I am not implying in anyway that behavior that is *intentionally* sexual is acceptable in a social situation since.

              We do, and we don't, have control over our bodies. I have no control over how my skin responds to temperature changes. Sitting in the warm sum seems to make the temperature of the water colder to me. I suppose I can deprive myself of a swim because of an expected body response, but then I might as well just put a suit on if I am ashamed of it.

              As far as an erection goes, since I am not a man, I am not an expert on the topic. But I can tell you that I have a brother who was grossly embarassed by an erection that he had no control over in school during class. Believe me, he did not in any way want to be embarassed or the brunt of a pile of infantile jokes. (And, of course, since I was attending the same school at the time, I heard the immature jokes, which is how I found out about it.)

                Sky,

                Your brother is not on my hit list. I understand perfectly his situation and don't intend to compare him to some of these red roosters who deliberately strut their stuff on the beach.

                I am no teenager and yet a sudden erection can still embarass me on a date with a lady who is real cuddly and sweet. (Usually my date is sympathetic, but I try not to offend people in public places). I am sure your brother wanted nothing more than to chill out somewhere private for a while, but in school that isn't always possible.

                  Did you do a typo, meaning "red lobsters"?

                    The reason why the male erection is different from the female erection is the size of the erection. A penis increases by quite a few inches in length, and the girth also increses a good amount as well. A nipple doesn't get that big and is not readily noticed by a passer-by.

                    It is funny, though, that the thing that makes the female nipple increase in size, the cold, has the opposite effect on the penis.

                      Well, Bob let's all stand in a waist-deep heated pool on a chilly windy day and everyone will be seen at their best.

                        I feel that an arousel can get a start for whatever reason, but once it starts, one might take notice of it and it could grow.

                        I've found that controlling your thoughts (or willing the erection away) is how to deal with it. Multiplication can really tie up you mind (if you don't know your tables too well.)

                        We also have the debate about whether or not the female breast is a sexual organ. Sure it can be used for sexual purposes. I think a more fitting comparison would be with the female vulva and clitoris, but changes there still do not compare with those of the penis.

                        Also, the phallus (penis or it's shape/representation) has become a symbol of power and is worshipped in some cultures. It is just a more prominent organ with a reputation (both good and bad).

                          Men do have a basic essential reaction to changing environment. If it is cold the penis shrinks in on itself and the testis draw up for warmth if it is warm the testis decend and the penis becomes flacid. I feel this is the only basic bodily function you can use to compare your nipples becoming erect because of cold water and the male genitalia. The only non-sexual reaction a penis has being erect is at night when sleeping and you have to urinate. There should never be a reason males are allowed to walk around in pure naturist venues with erections.

                            I think a lot of people are missing the point about the whole erection thing.

                            Men are afraid of erections in a public setting because it betrays their thoughts, because it shouts out to the world "I am sexually aroused". Women do not worry about having erect niples in cold water, because all it says is that the water is cold. It doesn't betray anything about their state of mind. Nor do men worry about their shrinking penises in cold water. Same reason.

                            We are social beings, and we like to have control over what we let show to others about what we think and feel about them. Erections bypass this, betraying our sexual arousal, in a way that we have little or no control on. That's what scares most men. When a woman has erect niples because of sexual arousal in a naturist setting, she can always blame it on the wind. Men cannot blame an erection on the wind.

                            This is only my opinion, of course.
