My mother would die!

My mother is a very private person and in some ways, prudish. She married my father at 21 and they’ve been together for 45 years so I don’t think there has been a lot of wild and crazy sexual liberation with her. She would never appear on this blog or if I were a video blogger, appear in a video with me, so when I saw this video I laughed a lot. This cute Irish youtuber got his mother in to share some wine and let her read some grindr messages that he’d been saving up, un-read for the occasion.

His mother is incredibly cool about it all. To be fair, my mother wouldn’t understand half of it so she probably wouldn’t be offended. Enjoy.

Have you been checked?

Most men are constantly touching themselves. Several of my nudie mates are a bit like me and quite regularly adjust or touch themselves whilst walking around nude. While we are always having a feel, it would be fair to say that we are rarely having a proper feel in the interests of our health.

Many years ago I thought I’d found a lump in one of my testicles so I went off to the doctor to get it checked out. It turned out to be nothing but there was a slightly awkward moment during the appointment. The female doctor found out I was a member of Bronte Surf Lifesaving Club at the time and told me her kids were in the nippers. Keep in mind that while she’s talking about her kids, she had my balls in her hand.

This video of a bunch of rugby players is a good demonstration of what to do and what to look/feel for. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s got a bunch of beefy rugby players with their balls out.

The routine!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. It’s been a crazy week of work, rehearsals, work, rehearsals, work, Kylie concert and last night was finally the performance. After doing such a rough job on Thursday night and feeling very tired and stressed on the silks, last night was a complete turnaround. It’s not a flawless performance but I felt good up there, I had fun and I’m very glad I did it. This video was filmed on my phone by a friend that wasn’t very close. I can’t work out if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

I was wearing a Slickitup tactical guard and at one point the rubber over my thumb got a little stuck but it was easily resolved. Before performing I get very nervous and last night was no different but thankfully once I started it was all channeled into the routine.

Just don’t get it

With so many underwear and swimwear labels out there, mostly catering for gay men it would seem, they are going to some pretty wild places with their designs. Some of them must rely almost solely on the fetish market because the underwear doesn’t support anything. Brands like Andrew Christian have such absurd pouches at the front that only the porn stars that model them can hope to fill them impressively.

This video from N2N Bodywear is pretty sexy. The guys are hot and a lot of the swimwear is pretty cool. The guys wearing the onesies in the pool really should have gotten out in them, that would have been sexy. Personally I don’t get men in g-strings. If a man looks good in a g-string it is probably DESPITE the g-string, not because of it. On the other hand, a jock strap enhances a butt whether good or bad.

How to sell handbags

When you want to sell handbags to a female audience, most designers shoot beautiful women holding them. Big labels shoot big celebrities with their product. Whoever this is took a very different approach. They took a blank white catwalk, and sent their product down the catwalk with male models. Completely nude male models. I love it. It’s completely absurd but when will I ever complain about a dozen or so good looking completely naked men?

Ross makes a return to Sydney

As is tradition, Ross Watson is having another exhibition in Sydney for Mardi Gras starting this weekend. As is also tradition it will be full of beautiful paintings of gorgeous men including a mate of mine, Nathan and the always sexy Jamie.

This time around Ross has also sent a video of the two models talking about their experiences and what it’s like modeling for Ross to be included in his exhibition.

So damned sexy

Now that the soggy mess of a movie “50 Shades of Grey” has come out everyone can finally go get it out of their system. Personally I’ve never heard of so many people walking out on a film that has been so anticipated. I’ve not read the books, nor do I intend to and once Jamie Dornan said he wasn’t going frontal in the film I lost the last shred of motivation to see it.

One thing that I really do like from the film is Beyonce’s version of her old hit “Crazy in Love.” It’s a slow sexy version and it’s almost begging for someone to do a circus routine to it. The only problem is that it’s a touch short for a good routine. Now, if I was still doing pole dancing this song would be used in a heartbeat.

A mate of mine and I were joking several months ago and somewhere along the way I promised to do a drag routine at his 40th which is late next year and this song may be a contender. Nothing like grinding awkwardly in drag on a close mate’s lap in front of his family to really add a special something to the evening don’t you think?

I think I’m a Poof!

A friend of mine has spent the last couple of years working on a children’s book and today he released his baby to the world. The book is called “I think I’m a Poof” and through a simple story of a child getting his father’s love and support, aims to teach children that being gay isn’t a bad thing. Sure, with words like Poof and Faggot in the book, not everyone is going to buy it and read it for their child.

Just tonight I’ve seen comments on facebook about the book saying it portrays stereotypes and is offensive. Seriously? I think people need to lighten up. The father in the book tells his little boy that he’ll live somewhere nice and will have a beautiful house and be stylish. Yes these are gay clichés but I’m pretty sure a straight parent will trot out a few clichés to support a gay child. The father is trying to encourage his upset child and tell him that he will have a good life.

Samuel Leighton-Dore is a young creative guy living in the Inner West of Sydney and he drew upon his own bullying and torment at school as inspiration to write the book. In his own words the book has its tongue firmly in it’s cheek and “I hope it starts an open dialogue and (most importantly) I hope it makes you laugh.” It certainly did make me smile.

Check out this gorgeous video of some Aussie Dads of gay sons reading the book and talking lovingly about their gay sons. You can buy the book here. One dollar from every book sold goes to QLife.

Not sure it would be comfortable

This video came to my attention today through the vimeo channel of my nudist friend Kirill who runs Active Naturists blog. He’s the go to man for all things naturist and he’s posted this video of a show jumper riding and jumping on horseback nude. From what I’ve heard, jumping takes a lot of control and it must be all in the thighs. It looks like there’s a bit of bouncing around going on which could be uncomfortable too but I am a firm believer of the theory if you want to do it then do it. Obviously that doesn’t apply to anything violent or harmful to others but riding around on a horse nude seems to fit the bill nicely.

Who knows why?

There are some very strange things posted online on a very regular basis. Neil Curtis has done several bodypaint videos but this is more of a conceptual music video using the male nude as a starting point. Instead of bodypaint he’s using mud and movement to tell a story. What that story is I have no idea. If you are going to direct a bonkers performance art music video, why not do it to Bjork? She is the high priestess of bonkers after all.

The guy in this video has a sexy body and isn’t shy. As with all of Neil’s models, he’s completely shaved which I understand for body paint but I wouldn’t have thought it as necessary for thick mud. Enjoy.

So very true

Especially after last night’s Scruff standup, this video about people’s behaviour on Grindr etc is spot on. All the complete bullshit that people put in their profiles is called out. Masculine, of course (not). I’ve never quite understood lying on a profile like that. Surely when someone meets you expecting one thing, when you turn out to be completely different do you expect them to still sleep with you?

Amazing, simple and beautiful

This video is an antidote to the depressing nature of the last post. I saw this video last week and even though it’s nearly 8 minutes long, it had me mesmerised. Michael Grab is an artist that has developed an amazing skill for balancing rocks in seemingly impossible arrangements that defy gravity. There is no trickery here. No glue, strings or other deception keeps the rocks balanced, just skill and I imagine a lot of patience.

According to his website it started for Michael as a whim in 2008 and has become his form of meditation because of the peaceful surroundings and the patience and calmness that is needed. The arrangements are beautiful and he’s also filmed and photographed them beautifully.

More showering wrestlers

This time the boys make sure all of their buddy is clean. Even though these guys wash each other’s balls and cock I still feel like they come across as completely straight. These guys have beautiful bodies and I’m just a little bit jealous of them having a hot shower buddy. Fooling around in the shower is one of my favourite things to do.

The wrestlers take a shower.

I recently posted a video of two guys wrestling nude that I wasn’t quite sure about. I liked it but I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to be turned on or enjoy their sporting prowess. Well now I know what I’m thinking of these guys in this new video of the two of them showering together. It’s hot. They are pretty obviously completely straight but also completely unselfconscious about their nakedness in the shower together.

There has been a real resurgence in the popularity of hairy men in the last few years and I think that’s great. If you have it and want it, keep it. Lumbersexuals unite! For me, there are some guys that just look really hot completely or nearly completely smooth and this guy with the shaved head is one of them.

Where did we lose the innocence?

There is so much visual documentation of communal male nudity in the middle of last century and it being so completely relaxed and comfortable. There are entire books full of wartime groups of men in their down time that show some guys nude, others not and none of it being an issue.

I wonder if more recently part of people’s reluctance is the fact that the internet has come along and images just don’t go away these days? Having said that, all those vintage photos are now scanned and online anyway, it’s just that the men in them aren’t here any more or they are too old to give a rats arse about it. A straight nudie friend sometimes gets nervous on the nude beach for fear that people are taking photos with their phones so he may or may not strip off.

Another theory that I’ve floated at times is the visibility of gay men in society. Gay men have been much more visible and open for a few decades now but acceptance has been further behind and we all know that a lot of straight men feel very threathened by the fact that gay men may objectify them the way they do women so they may remain more modest for that reason.

Whatever the cause, it’s a shame that people are so wary of being seen nude. This vintage video of a bunch of naked men in a sauna, running out into a plunge pool and to roll in the snow from 1947 shows just how natural it was for men to be nude together at the time. I love it.
