We really enjoy getting to know the guys who join our trips through deep conversations. We’d love to share this honest conversation between Everything To Sea and Ric, a traveler who came aboard our boat in October 2022. Ric is a freight operations manager (choo-choo!) who loves spending his free time camping naked in the bush of Australia. He inspired us with his story and we’d like to highlight him in this post as part of our blog series called “Meet Another Everything To Sea Traveler.”
At Everything To Sea, we sometimes get inquiries from guys who want to be naked with other men, but they’re holding back due to fear of rejection. We’re proud to provide a body-positive space for all men to engage in social nudity, free of judgment to others. But what about judging yourself? Giving yourself a break from self-criticism is extremely freeing and empowering. Envision a future where every body belongs.
Despite the body-positive movement mostly being focused on women, it’s important to acknowledge that men have body image struggles, too. Unfortunately they’re not as openly discussed or diagnosed. One condition in particular is disproportionally affecting men, accelerated by gym culture and fitness influencers. Read more in the following excerpt from a mental health article by VeryWell Mind.
At Everything To Sea, we sometimes get inquiries from guys that are along these lines: “I’m dreaming of joining a trip, but I’m worried I won’t fit in because of my age.” The fact is, men from every decade join our trips. And we’ve found that everyone has something to contribute, which ultimately forms a unique voyage. From muscles and eye-candy, to knowledge and experience and depth, to humor and positive attitude, it’s our firm belief that every man who comes aboard our ship is interesting on some level. And it’s the variety of backgrounds and life experiences that make each of our trips memorable and fun.
Aging is a topic that’s normally perceived as negative… and related to loss. But there are legitimate, positive gains to growing older – though often overlooked or downplayed. We enjoyed this article from Outside Magazine, which talks “on the harder-to-measure benefits of age and experience.” It dives into scientifically measured benefits of growing older. We hope you enjoy this blog post – why don’t you tell us your reaction, in the Comments section, below!
Get Your Dream Relationship by Setting Boundaries
If you’ve gone through our website, you know that our most unique offering (in fact, we’re the only company in the world that offers this!) is Your Private Journey. So hopefully, you’ve heard about Your Private Journey. Now, what about Your Dream Relationship? In this post, we discuss something we can’t set up for you: this one, you’ve got to do yourself. Read on, for tips on how to get Your Dream Relationship.
The fact is, boundaries are essential in healthy partnerships. And we each have our own set of boundaries – whether we’re fully conscious of them or not. For example, “I need you to be on time for our date night,” or, “I don’t want to be touched there.” When boundaries are crossed in relationships, it’s normal to feel frustrated, disappointed, or sad. For many, it’s a great challenge to actually state boundaries out loud due to fear of judgement, abandonment, or rejection. But people aren’t mind readers, and that’s why rules and boundaries must be made explicit – and the sooner, the better. In this article, we’re going to dive into how to set boundaries, especially when it comes to open relationships.
A look at the curious ways the English language deals with nudity.
We are big language nerds over here at Everything To Sea. We love sharing and comparing the nuances and idiosyncrasies that exist in English versus other languages. In fact, altogether our team can speak 8 different languages, including German, French, Indonesian, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Javanese, and English. We couldn’t resist sharing excerpts from a blog written by Paul Rousse, editor of Naturist Travel/H&E Naturist. He takes a deep dive into the various ways that people have used the English language to describe nudity, from the coarse and comical to the polished and old-fashioned.
There are many so-called “sexual health experts” out there, including family members, religious leaders, and burnt out health class teachers. And unfortunately, much of the information that we get from these “experts” is laced with shame. In this blog, we’d like to reintroduce you to our gorgeous friend, masturbation, with a body-positive and research-based outlook. Later, we’ll touch on a couple of trending topics related to male masturbation, including the NoFap movement and semen retention.
Our guest blogger is Tyler the Bad Wolf. He’s a writer, elite male companion, and all-around penis enthusiast. Badwolf.blog is a collection of his thoughts on male sexuality, pornography, art, and sexual health. In these two posts taken from Tyler’s glossary about male masturbation culture, he talks about dicks, concepts around them, and being proud of what you have. Happy reading!
A boner war may be raging in nudist camps, but with Everything To Sea trips, the only thing raging might be boners themselves. Woops – now we’re just being “cheeky.” Not that there’s anything wrong with ass cheeks (or assholes; we like them on our trips, too! We mean, the body part… not some dick you just met.) Wait, did you just meet up with… some dick?
Everything To Sea’s Communications Specialist Eddie is out, proud, and a true activist for gay awareness. In this post, he writes about what it’s like to be gay in a hetero-normative world, and how experiences like naked sailing with other enlightened guys can be a positive force for gay men.
The world is an amazing place and traveling can make you feel invincible. It’s no coincidence it’s so addictive. However, there is a science behind the joy of traveling. Check out this article that we found from TheDiscoverer.com about crazy facts that could change the way you travel – and give you even more reasons to head on another new adventure.
In this blog post, Everything To Sea’s Eddie Rahadian talked with Patrick Emmanuel, the founder of MaleBodyPoetry.net, in which he waxes on both male nudity and the beauty of nature. Check out our Q&A with the Heidelberg-based guy below.
May is the National Mental Health Awareness Month in the United States. One of our founders, Max, recently talked about his observation on how men often found it difficult to speak up about their inner world. He recommended this article that talks about signs of anxiety, stress, and depression in men by Jean Claude Chalmet, as told to Anna Maxted. A version of this article can be found on ThePlaceRetreat.com.
Now that we’re emerging from a long quarantine, many people are realizing they may have put on a few “pandemic pounds.” Well, if you find yourself in that category, we’re here to help. We heard of a new way to exercise…with your balls. Yes, it’s called “Ball Yoga”. We went to our friends The Naked Trainers to find out what it’s all about, and how you can get to stretching the family jewels.
