Our Naked Bodies

I am in heaven.

No judgments, no hypocrisy, no pretense of any kind. And, this is not just because I am in Mexico, all though that helps. Frankly anywhere outside of the USA, and you have generally found an all inclusive and open minded thought process. But, I happen to be staying at a nude resort.

I speak often of the masks we wear to hide ourselves. It never dawned on me how our clothing is designed to do the very same. We are born naked, and then we are instantly swaddled. Now, at that moment there are very real reasons why we must be covered warmly and tightly held. But as we grow, always clothed, are we ever truly free? There is this amazing eye opening revelation one goes through walking around nude in front of total strangers. Talking, eating, lying on the beach, hugging others in greetings and good byes, all nude.

My how we allow our clothing to foolishly define us.

I am loving being nude. There is a natural sensual feel to being nude. And, I could never have imagined I would be the one to say that.

“We all wear masks, and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person.                                     
Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth. ~~~ Oscar Wilde

I look forward to being the keeper of the truths you share with me. I have said many, many times . . . the phone is our mask. A mask can take many shapes.

Trust me.

I am so often asked about my use of masks.

This excerpt was written to me by a very articulate and perceptive gentleman.

“You have a very intriguing website. At first impression the mask seems a strange approach for a gallery, but then on reflection we all wear masks most of the time. Others see our face or look into our eyes, but we try to play a role on the stage of life. Much time is spent attempting to have others see us, as we would like to be seen, not as we are.

We use our mask to keep others from seeing us, as we really perceive ourselves. The irony of your site is the proposal to have your guests take down their masks for a few minutes in the anonymity of a phone call between strangers. You employ an explicit mask for yourself to tempt your caller to drop his own mask.”

In the course of the day, think of the many masks we change into. Or perhaps the continual layers we add. Sometimes I am not sure we are even aware of them. They can become so embedded into our selves. We do become very skilled at using them. Do we wear them as a result of innate human nature, self preservation, shyness, or for enjoyment of the more playful kind of mask, such as Halloween or in erotic play?

Yes we all wear masks. My hope, is that in my chosen profession I have been able to offer you a safe haven to lower your mask for me, if only for a moment.
