Get (Cock) Positive

1

Blogger buddy Westernstock, over at Enhanced Masculinity, has been doing a series on the Positive and Negative aspects of sexuality. It's a very good series and deserves to be read - particularly if religion ties you into fits of guilt over your natural instincts regarding sex.

The issue we all face as humans is accepting that we are sexual beings; we engage in sex for reasons other than procreation. Throughout our lives this simple fact of life is oppressed by religious factions of our upbringing, further repressed by our own feelings of guilt, and extended by the denial of the male genitalia.
3

It begins with adults informing us with all manner of negative adjectives to describe or otherwise inform us on our genitals. At worst they're "dirty," at best they're "private." We shouldn't see males in underwear in papers or television ads, male frontal nudity in film is considered pornography. My gosh, a large percentage of the male population can't even take a piss unless their pricks are hidden by privacy panels. That's how strong an influence society in general has had on our attitudes and how we view what nature has provided.

Before one can come to accept and embrace one's sexual nature - regardless of orientation - one must learn to accept and embrace what one has been born with. And, I think, therein lies the problem. The extremist, far-right factions of the world's societies (mostly men) have not accepted, and cannot accept, how the sexual self works and responds; they cannot embrace it. Therefore, they work to repress. They prefer that men deny the vast array of natural sexual response, and that women turn back the clock to subservience.

Rather than denying and hiding it, accept what nature provided. Accept how it works and responds. Then you will be able to embrace what you've been given and enjoy it.

Your comment on Westernstock's look at the positive and negative aspects of sexuality are right on target.

I'm often asked how I came to have such a positive outlook on my sexuality. My reply is that it was a long, hard road. For years I was one of the men you speak of who couldn't even take a piss in the presence of other men. It was so bad that when I went to a ballgame, I had to limit my intake of fluids so I would not need to go to the restroom.

That kind of hang up about a natural body function is a needless burden.

Another great post!
Lucky for me, I had a very open Uncle who taught me that my "privates" Don't need to always be private.

Very good post once more. I could not pee at urinals till I went to China. There it was - do it or hold it all day (impossible)!!! Now I have no trouble. Now my privates do come out in public! Hugs, Patrick

10/10 both for your text and for the photos.
Definitely, we have exactly the same appreciation of the religions.
Have a great day and my kindest bisous.
Postscriptum: LOL "from head to toe - with a special stop in the middle" is less good than "from head to toes - with two special stops in the middle". In French, we don't say "from head to foot" but "from head to feet", and I think that we'll go on as long as the feet will remain on the same level.

A lot has to do with our upbringing and religious indoctrination or I should say brainwashing.

@ Stan - Yes, my point exactly on Westernstock's post - that, sadly, it typically will always lead back to religion.
