I would think it IS normal... as far as I know men can't control "it" when "it" happens.<br />
My opinion is if you don't want a man to stare at you and get turned on, PUT SOME CLOTHES ON. Sheesh. I am so tired of women who complain that all men do is stare at their breasts but don't bother to cover up.
It's unacceptable only to those "professional" nudists who claim that sex and nudity aren't related. <br />
Most of these types of people are real power freaks who want to control everyone within reach - in particular when it comes to sexual activity on nude beaches. <br />
They claim that sexual activity results in offended people and a clamp down by authorities. This is only partly true.<br />
On our local nude beach, we have these "professional" nudists who get into a group, and who try to bully, embarrass, threaten, and otherwise hassle people (always men, of course) who are showing any kind of sexual behaviour. <br />
They go up to single women and say things like "don't sit here, there are perverts about, come and sit with us, you'll be safer!". <br />
Of course, this is the biggest load of BS ever, as there are just as many perverts and sexual deviates amongst professional nudists, as there are amongst the general population. <br />
What these people can't believe - don't want to believe - is that there are plenty of women who are happy to come to the nude beach, ***** off, flop down, and indulge in some "stiffy watching". <br />
Yes - Horrors! - there are women who enjoy voyeurism as much as men! <br />
Fortunately, this "professional nudist" group has lost a lot of members and power, and they no longer hassle men with stiffys, or men and a woman indulging in mutual voyeurism and sexual activity. <br />
The balance has returned to the beach, and the "no-sex" people now keep to themselves, and the sexy people have adult fun!! I love it!
Very few nudists think that it's unacceptable to get a stiffy. Most nudists think that it's unacceptable to flaunt it. Simple as that.
I would advise any man to lie down in some soft sand .... scooping out a little hole for his dinkle....<br />
BUT C-A-U-T-I-O-N!!!!! make sure no crab(s) try and move in....and try and play castanets with your maraccas....
just don't use it as a towel rack
They all belong their, each in their own little sick, twisted way.
Beach wood just takes me back to the good days, I grew up near a lake and skinny dipping and naked mud diving was common, I don't think any of us thought twice about getting turned on by the opposite sex...I would of worried if it was all guys only running around nude and one of us was sporting a woody.
It's definitely "normal". But I've found that the more I visit nude beaches and hang around other nude people, it becomes so "normal" that the "stiffy" doesn't occur as often. There are times though that I can feel one coming on, especially if there are attractive women or my mind starts heading toward those types of things, but there always seems to be someone on the beach to help turn it back down (LoL). I'll also often just lay on my back until it subsides. Harder to tell if you've got a "stiffy" or are just a shower and not a grower when it's not sticking out straight or up while your standing.
If a guy who is n't used to being at a nude beach or nude clubs, with naked women, it will happen. I know the one time, I was invited to a nude club, I was shy about it and wore a speedo. I did have a stiff, even before my speedo had to come off. I was n't comfortable being naked or seeing all these naked people all sizes and shapes. It seems to be an accepted thing that happens to a guy, the first time at a nude beach or club, especially if there attractive looking women around. I did n't take off my speedo right away as asked, not just because, I had a stiff, looking at some of the naked ladies, but it's a natural reaction, especially having others, seeing all of me,as shyly get my speedo off. My men's privates felt better, being snug and secure in speedos, and I may still get a stiff, without a lot of naked people,watching me bare it all.
