Our little project has not been without its bumps. When my buddy Dan and I started talking about creating this magazine, we had plans on a balls-out magazine that would be the only kind of magazine on the market. I lined up a lot of great talent - photographers, writers, a design person - and I spent several thousand dollars on everything from domain name registration to model advances. The challenges of running a multi-person project started. I tried creating a website that was "everything naked" listing events, names of clubs, creating video chat things that took me away from creating actual content for the magazine. Our Facebook page was taken down because it was too risqué. Our mail list server was taken ofﬂine because they claimed we were peddling porn. It all got to be way too much and I just decided to pull the plug before I even got started. But the dream to create a magazine continued to burn. I hate leaving projects unﬁnished and I wanted to prove to no one but myself that I could do it. I decided to scale it all back and just produce a magazine that I could layout myself. The magazine would be a firstname.lastname@example.org place where everyone who wants to submit their articles, photographs, recipes or ideas would have a place to do it. I would take reader’s content and do the lay-out work myself. Advertising would be cheap, and I won't give a fuck about trying to please anyone except myself. And in the end, isn't that what it's about - pleasing yourself? Dan and I had the vision of creating a hip little magazine for dudes who like to get naked. Well, here it is. Balls Out. Our goal is to connect male nudists to the people, places and things that matter to us. Speaking of living “balls out”, here’s a shout out to the amazing Trevor Wayne who is our ﬁrst celebrity interview. I wrote him asking if he would answer a few questions and he said “yes.” Like Trevor, I believe that asking for what you want is the best policy. Enjoy Trevor’s interview and enjoy the magazine.

In 1974, one of my friends from high school married a young Irish girl he had met in France the previous year. He asked me to be his witnesses to marriage. It meant to go to Dublin for the church ceremony. My boyfriend had looked to book a room in a student house during my week stay. To move, I had rented a Mini. One day, I went on a beach in front of the port. There were mothers with their children playing on the sand. There was also a man 50-60 years old bathing. When he was ﬁnished. He took his towel and dried is the upper body. When he had ﬁnished, he donned a T-shirt, then he took off his bathing suit. He went into the water and looked forward to rinse. By doing this, he showed his buttocks and his balls dangling between his thighs. I was more surprised that nobody seemed neither surprised nor bothered by the spectacle. I imagine the outcry if this had happened on a beach in France at that time. But nothing! Another day, I went to the south of Dublin along the coast. I saw a wooden sign at the entrance to a dirt road. Printed on it with an arrow showing the direction: "Men bathing place" I wanted to see what it was. I parked my car and I embarked on the path and I came to an area of rocks in the middle of which, hidden from the road, there was a kind of natural pool where men, naked, bathed, and others talked in the sunshine. Because of both my discomfort with this surprise spectacle, and my poor knowledge of the English language, I turned around and went back to my “By doing this, he showed his buttocks and his balls dangling between his thighs. I was more surprised that nobody seemed neither surprised nor bothered by the spectacle.” 8 car. A few miles later, I saw again the same model sign at the entrance of a path. I wanted to see if it was the same. Among the rocks, I found a similarly natural pool and there was a man roughly 60-70 years old wearing a jersey. Already more comfortable, I approached him and after greetings and introductions, the man asked me if I'd like to swim. I told him I did not have my bathing suit. He told me that it was not necessary despite the inscription painted on a rock saying that wearing clothing was mandatory after 9 am. I decided to take the plunge and swim naked for the ďŹ rst time in my life! I undressed in a shelter built among the rocks here and when I returned to the water's edge, the man was naked too to show that I risked nothing from the police. The water in the Irish Sea was so cold that I did not stay long to soak. I preferred to make me dry in the sun, especially since I did not have a towel, not having foreseen that I would be bathing during my Irish time ... even less than that would be naked! email@example.com 9 Getting Pulled Over in Kentucky Driving Nude by firstname.lastname@example.org . I was stopped by a KY state cop on I-24 just north of Cadiz in 2003. I was driving back to Illinois after spending 2 weeks in Florida on vacation. On my last 2 days in Florida; I had been at the nude beach and had a bad sunburn all over my body. I could not stand having anything on my body for very long, especially anything tight or slightly heavy. In an attempt to stay comfortable and somewhat cool, 24 10 I wrapped a large light beach towel loosely around my waist, but had it ﬂipped off to the side to let the heat from my sunburn escape. When I drive nude; there is always a towel under me that I can ﬂip over my lap if I have to. Mainly to protect my modesty and not ﬂash anyone that may be offended by my being nude. About 3 am; I had to stop for gas. When I pulled into the station, I was the only person on the lot. The attendant looked to be asleep and the way the station was set up, my car was blocking the view from the road and the pump blocked the view from the station so I got out with just the towel very loosely wrapped around my waist and refueled. While the gas was pumping, I ﬂipped the towel open and was fanning the edges to try and cool off. When I pulled back onto the ramp to the interstate, I passed a KY State cop sitting on the side of the on-ramp with his lights off. As soon as I got out onto the highway, I set my cruise between 75 and 80 mph and ﬂipped the towel off as I leaned back to drive the rest of the way to Chicago in comfort. I was about a mile or two down the road, when I saw a car coming up behind me very fast with just his parking lights on. He pulled up behind me and turned his driving lights on as I ﬂipped my towel back over my lap just in case. When we went past an off ramp; I realized that it was a cop car behind me. He followed me a good 10 miles more before he turned his emergency lights on for me to pull over. When he got out and started to walk up to my car, he was talking on his radio and I heard him say to check the tape and see what happened. He then asked for all the usual info and ran his ﬂashlight over me and the back of the car while I got everything together for him. It took him about 20 minutes to check all my info out back in his cruiser. During that time a second State cop had pulled up behind us and had talked with the ﬁrst ofﬁcer for several minutes. The second ofﬁcer then got back into his car and left as the ﬁrst ofﬁcer walked back up to my car and returned my license to me. He ran his light over my car again and paused at the shorts on the ﬂoorboard then came back up to focus on my chest and face. His comment was to keep covered when anyone was around and make sure I was covered and stayed covered next time I got out to gas up again. I didn't realize that the station I was just at had cameras, and that the clerk wasn't asleep but watching the monitor under the counter. He had called the cops about someone pumping gas in the nude. The second ofﬁcer had watched me on the monitor and saw that I wasn't ﬂashing anyone but was trying to cool off. When the cop saw how burnt I was he understood why. I had the towel across my lap and that my shorts were right there to put back on if needed, were the turning point that “kept me from getting arrested for public nudity,” he said. The funny thing is about a week after this happened, I got a letter in the mail from this ofﬁcer telling me how funny he thought the situation was and that he hoped that the next time I was in the area I would let him know. (He said that he had seen the Rainbow and Gay Pride stickers on my car and that was also part of the reason he let me off... He was ‘family’ also.) I have talked to him several times since then and have stopped in Cadiz twice to meet him and talk. We have never messed around beyond him teasing me about loving to drive in the nude and giving each other a hug and kiss when I leave to ﬁnish my trip. It was very strange trying to explain to him that my driving nude isn't a sexual thing, it's about comfort. 11 TRUE ENCOUNTERS Woodstock ’99 - Fun Nightmare By: Ihor I had no intention to stay for the next band so I started my way back to the East Stage. Rage Against the Machine and Metallica were, of course, two major attractions of the night. I also wanted to hear Limp Bizkit so much spoken about, and though, like I said, I never was much of a rap fan, experience with DMX suggested that I even might enjoy the show. The sun was getting low, but it was not twilight yet – just that quiet, very light golden shine, which artists and photographers are after. And there where not many people around as compared to vending areas or East stage. Nice and peaceful. Laughter and water splashes came suddenly from the left. I turned my head that way. What I saw made me stop with amusement. The wall between the campgrounds and the main area and a set of port-a-johns going perpendicular to it formed a sort of enclosure separated from the major area and opened to the West stage, now empty. In that enclosure, next to the wall there was a well with faucets. The bottom opening for wastewater was apparently clogged or plugged and water ﬂowing from the opened faucets had ﬁlled the well and was pouring out over the top. Inside the well two mudgirls in their clothes were washing mud off themselves and were almost done because water running from the well was clean. Around the well, splashing water on themselves, stood three guys, stark naked. The scene was so natural and fresh that I stopped and watched it for a minute not even thinking that I might be taken for a gawker. Then I came closer, produced my camera and asked: ‘Guys? Can I take a picture of you?’ ‘Sure, go ahead!’ – said one of them and took a pose of a bodybuilder with his arms up. Another one immediately did the same. The third just laughed and kept washing himself. Girls waved. Three or four people stopped near me to watch. I snapped the picture. ‘Another shot?’ – asked the guy. ‘Yes, if it’s not too much to ask.’ ‘Not at all, go ahead!’ I took another one. ‘Thanks!’ ‘Anytime!’ – they went back to splashing water on themselves. Bystanders started walking again. I stood for another 10 seconds. Then I took my tank-top off my head, put it down, then put my camera, my watch and my beltpouch on it, stripped of my shorts and sandals and came up to the well buck naked. ‘Wow!’ ‘That’s the spirit!’ ‘Our number is growing!’ ‘Do you mind if I join you?’ – I asked. ‘Not at all!’ ‘Why should we?’ I dipped my head into the well. Then, like the others, I started splashing water with my hands on my body and rubbing my skin. Very few moments were as enjoyable. ‘Guys? Can I take a picture of you?’ – a female voice asked. We turned that way. A woman with a camera was standing next to my clothes. All four of us did the bodybuilder thing. She along with few other people took our pictures and we returned to bathing. Other Around the well, splashing water on themselves, stood three guys, stark naked. The scene was so natural and fresh that I stopped and watched it for a minute not even thinking that I might be taken for a gawker. Then I came closer, produced my camera and asked, ‘Guys? Can I take a picture of you?’ 12 people passing by paid some attention to us, but not too much. After a while, when everyone seemed to refresh enough, we just stood in the sun, drying off a little, then dressed. Except one guy. He just put on his sandals. His buddy (and let’s keep this name for him –Buddy) looked at him. ‘Aren’t you dressing?’ ‘Nope’. ‘Are you gonna walk this way?’ ‘Yup. All naked.’ ‘Why in the world?’ ‘Why in the world not? I want it this way. It’s Woodstock! You can walk naked here.’ He picked up his clothes and headed towards the main area. Buddy followed him. The third guy must have been a stranger to them, like me, so he just waved and left. Girls were still bating. Having nothing better to do, I followed the naked guy and Buddy. The crowd was increasing as we approached vending booths, but no one actually seemed to be too much surprised. From behind I took another picture – naked guy in the crowd. They started to cross the lawn towards the movie hangar. Now the sun was low, the light was pinkish. And here I made up my mind. What the fuck? He’s right, it’s Woodstock! I came closer. ‘Guys?’ They turned. I handed my camera to Buddy. ‘Hey, would you mind?’ ‘Mind what?’ ‘Take a picture of me and your friend,’ – I said stripping naked again (actually taking off my shorts, that was all I was wearing except sandals.) ‘No problem’. We turned to the sun. Buddy took a picture and gave my camera back to me. ‘Listen, guys, do you mind if I stick with you for a while? To be honest, I don’t have a nerve to do this naked thing alone.’ ‘Sure, come along,’ – the naked guy said. ‘Listen,’ – he said to Buddy, - ‘why don’t you strip too?’ ‘Just cannot. What do you call it? Prude? Modest?’ ‘I think, “shy” is the word,’ – I said. ‘Yes. Shy.’ – He paused. – ‘Well, you know, if it was something I had to do to get on the TV, I’d probably do it.’ We were approaching the movie hangar. The crowd there was quite thick. We walked through it heading to the East stage. And suddenly I saw a guy with a microphone and a woman with a TV camera looking at the crowd, apparently searching for something worth attention. They were two steps away. Sure enough, next moment they saw us. The reporter gave his assistant quick look and approached us. ‘Guys? Do you mind if we take and interview?’ The woman was already shooting. I noticed “Utica” label on her camera. Local news crew. ‘This is a most amazing coincidence,’ – I thought looking at Buddy. His reaction was immediate. In a split second he was naked and talking into the microphone about how he liked it here at Woodstock. 13 ‘OK, guys, but why are you naked?’ – the reporter asked and shifted the mike to the original naked guy. ‘Well, because it’s natural, because it’s OK to be naked here, that’s why. We all washed and then it just felt right to walk naked, and so we did.’ ‘I see. Are you sober, guys?’ ‘Absolutely,’ – all three of us replied. ‘Where are you from, guys?’ ‘Georgia.’ ‘Maryland here,’ – I said. ‘And you?’ – the reporter extended his mike to me. ‘You too feel it natural?’ ‘Yup,’ – I didn’t want to talk much – my accent could provoke a lot of extra questions unrelated to the topic. ‘Are you sober too?’ ‘Yes, I am.’ ‘Just naked guy?’ ‘Just naked guy.’ ‘Are you enjoying it here at Woodstock?’ ‘Every second of it.’ ‘We’ll, guys, thank you for your time.’ ‘Sure.’ ‘No problem.’ We resumed our walk. Buddy pulled on his shorts. ‘I’m going to the tent,’ – he said. ‘You going home?’ ‘Yeah, I’m going.’ ‘All right, I’ll see you there later,’ – replied naked guy. Buddy left. We kept walking and were approaching food court that was really crowded. ‘What’s your name?’ – I asked. ‘Bob.’ ‘I am Ihor.’ ‘Whassup, buddy.’ Now we were entering the food court and were in the middle of really, really big crowd. No wonder, it was about dinnertime and everyone wanted to get some food before major performances of the night started. Two naked guys in the middle of dressed crowd, not at the nude beach, not in the bathhouse, but in the middle of food court. And, surprisingly, I caught myself not being embarrassed at all. What the fuck, it’s Woodstock. And we are not ugly or handicapped, just naked. And another thought crossed my mind. Everyone had this nightmare: you are naked in the middle of the crowd. Well, here we go – we are naked in the middle of the crowd. And it’s no nightmare. In the dream it’s much, much worse. Here we were just getting a little more looks than we would get being dressed, that’s all. So we walked our way heading towards the East stage. ‘By the way, where are we actually going?’ – I asked. ‘I want to listen to Rage and Metallica.’ ‘Me too,’ – replied Bob. - ‘I am going right there.’ ‘Good then. Let’s get some water,’ – we were out of the food court and just passing another well. ‘Let’s get it.’ At the well I reﬁlled my bottle and both of us took some extra splashes. Bob was smiling, his shortly trimmed hair was wet and looked like hedgehog’s back. ‘Fuck, it really feels great!’ ‘Fuck, it sure fucking does!’ As we stepped on the walkway running along the right side of the ﬁeld at the East stage, it was almost dark and it was a break before Limp Bizkit. People were crowding the area. We moved ahead and suddenly a young couple that walked in the opposite direction, that is out of the ﬁeld, bumped into us face to face. They both laughed. ‘Bob! What is this?!’ Of course, we stopped. Bob, also smiling, turned to me. ‘Sorry buddy, you go ahead, I’ll catch up in a minute. This is my sister and her husband. I have to talk to them.’ ‘No problem.’ ‘I’ll ﬁnd you there.’ And so I proceeded alone. I walked for maybe another ﬁve minutes. Bob still was somewhere back. And I suddenly felt… no, not shy or uncomfortable, somehow it just was over. The new experience became old. If there were at least two of us, it still might be worth continuing, but lonely naked guy in the crowd… No, I am lying here. The truth is that left alone I did feel uncomfortable. I turned back. No Bob. I pulled my shorts on and now it really was over. But it was fun. Sorry, Bob. 14 This is My Time, and I Am Naked. Author and Photo: email@example.com Three naked black women, with voluptuous booties, hoot and “holla” as they tear off their clothes, raise their hands in the air, and run into the ocean. “Gurl, we don’t know these people,” one hollers. She doesn’t realize that her voice is being carried, loud and clear, by the prevailing wind. 15 On the northern end of Haulover beach, between lifeguard towers #12 and #16, there is a gay area where the boys swim and play naked. It’s Monday, but to my surprise, the gay male nudists are out and proud. Two guys were walking on the beach with erections, which was very hot. The beach is a great place to embrace ones “love of being naked”. We haven’t taken our clothes off yet. I’ve only transitioned from my board shorts to a speedo. Just to my left, three cute and chubby bears are huddled around a blue ice chest cooler. Papa bear is pouring a secret beverage from an unmarked, 1-gallon jug, into three blue solo cups. I wonder what’s in there? An older, more experienced, nude gentleman is enjoying his pre-packed picnic lunch and he is peacefully munching on an oatmeal granola bar. He brought his mask, snorkel and ﬁns, which are great for underwater viewing. He has wrapped himself in a sheer, leopard print, sarong, complete with tassels on the ends. It’s too late for that sarong to protect his skin from the harsh rays of the sun. In fact, the leather texture of his skin proves he has deﬁnitely done this before. He isn't going anywhere, anytime soon. The three little bears have added a fourth and he is pouring champagne from a glass bottle. I guess that was orange juice in the 1-gallon jug. Cheers boys, mimosas are tasty! At this point, we are starting to feel like we may want to get naked too. The only other thought going through my mind, as I prepare to remove my speedo, is quite simple… should I keep my cock ring on or not? Now, I’m naked. I have decided “no” on the cock ring. But, since the moment I got naked, I have noticed three guys wearing only cock rings. Maybe it isn’t tacky after all. The sun feels great on my naked body. But alas, it’s too hot for my balls. It’s time to turn towards the sea. What a nice, unexpected breeze in my “fathoms below”. As the sun sets and the lifeguards have gone home, it may be time for the bears and cubs to hibernate. It looks like they are going out for a ﬁnal, frisky swim in the ocean. Watch out for dangerous marine life boys! Come out and get naked in public, naked in the wild, naked in the sun. Get out there and enjoy nature as a nature intended. This is my time, and I am naked. 16 BE A WRITER How to Get Published in GoNaked Magazine You're a budding writer or photographer who wants to share your work and grow your business? That's cool. We'll take your articles. Maybe you run a business that welcomes nude men or you work in the buff? Groovy. We want to hear about it. Here are the ways you and your work can get into the magazine. Writers, Travel Agents, Business Owners, Clubs, Interviewers, Club Owners, Etc. It's easy for you to submit your articles to GoNaked Magazine. Shoot your 100 - 500 word articles to http://gonakedmag.wufoo.com/forms/articlesubmission/ Make sure that your article is well written, free from grammatical errors, and is intelligible. (I prefer the Oxford comma.) I suggest hiring an editor if your writing skills are marginal. (You can get one on ﬁvver.com for 5 bucks.) Articles that are promoting a business or club: This is free advertising, folks. Because the magazine is digital, include email address links, website links, and other links to rich media (Flickr, YouTube videos, Yahoo Groups, etc.) Add phone numbers if applicable. Keep in the back of your mind, "How can I make a reader want to contact me to visit my business?" Whatever that is - do it. Articles can cover a wide variety of topics: health & ﬁtness, destinations, vacation, politics, nudist clubs, true experiences, advice, reviews of products, etc. The one common denominator is that they all have to include some aspect of male nudity. You can even submit a favorite recipe if you take photos of yourself doing it naked. Again, if the product/place you're writing about isn't speciﬁcally about male nudity, we need someone nude in the photos you send about that product or place. Speaking of photos, all articles will be better received if you can supply photographs - provided you have the rights to these photographs. You can attach your photos with your article. The higher quality/resolution the better. Include the following in your article: •Your 'byline" - We need to know who wrote the article. (e.g. "By: Nick Golic) •Your email address - Readers should have a way to reach you for more information. 17 Photographers: We want to see your work as well. Show us what you've got. There are a lot of us who take photographs and want to share our art with the world. GoNaked Magazine is a great forum for you to publish your work. Let me put this up front: We don't pay; we are not in a position to pay. This mag makes no proﬁt, so the little bit that we receive from advertising will be spent on things like maintaining basic costs To be a featured photographer, you need to submit 5-20 shots for a layout in our mag. Each photograph should ideally be watermarked with your name and copyright info. You should also include a short (50-100 words) paragraph that tells readers about you, where your work is, a link to your website and anything else that you can think of in the short amount of space you have. Photographers interested in sharing their work can upload here: http://gonakedmag.wufoo.com/forms/photographersgallery-submission/ Our policy on sex, hardons, sucking, fucking, etc. I'm not stupid. Sex sells. As men, we are more visual than women and as (mostly) gay men, we love to see sex. The nudist community has long struggled with the ﬁne line between nudity and sex. Sex is not what this mag is about. There's plenty of places online where you can see someone's ﬁst shoved up someone's ass. However, I don't want to have a completely prudish publication. For now, let's just say that there is a "no penetration" rule. Nothing from one person inside of another, tongues and ﬁngers included. Erections are ﬁne, but overt sexuality is not. Semen will not be seen in this magazine. Consider it a challenge to be creative without being perverted. 18 TRAVEL In the heart of Geyserland, Rotorua, New Zealand, is Guysers Gaystay New Zealand is a wonderful country to visit over the summer months from November through to March. New Zealand has many naturist clubs (mixed clientele), retreats and nude beaches as well as many gay B&B’s and farmstays – some of which are clothing optional. My partner and I have been nudists for many years now and have recently opened a clothing optional mens bed and breakfast in the tourist town of Rotorua, New Zealand. Although we are called ‘Guysers Gaystay’ we welcome straight males as well. We had a young guest from America over summer who speciﬁcally booked with us knowing we are a clothing optional B&B, and literally 1 minute after dropping his bags in his room he came out naked and stayed that way for the whole time he was with us. Others take a little longer to disrobe and it is usually the spa pool that is the ice-breaker for many. The name ‘Guysers’ is of course a play on the word ‘Geyser’ because Rotorua is the thermal capital of New Zealand and has many examples of geysers, mud pools, steaming fumaroles and volcanoes. Our B&B can sleep up to 5 guests and we have a comfortable lounge and dining area and outdoors we have a fabulous hydrotherapy spa pool, deck chairs, sun-loungers and a pretty garden which we are establishing. Our property is north facing (which means into the sun in New Zealand!) and is private and sheltered – perfect for relaxing naked outdoors with a book and a glass of New Zealand wine or a cold beer. Our B&B is right in the centre of Rotorua City, just 3 minutes walk to the restaurants, bars, shops, the lake front and the World Top 10 Polynesian Spa thermal hot pool complex. Rotorua has a very comfortable climate and unlike many coastal regions of New Zealand, we experience far less wind. Our summers can be very hot, especially in our sheltered back garden and under our pergola which can reach into the 30’s (Celsius), so one must take care to put adequate 19 We had a young guest from America over summer who speciﬁcally booked with us knowing we are a clothing optional B&B, and literally 1 minute after dropping his bags in his room he came out naked and stayed that way for the whole time he was with us. sunscreen on due to our thin ozone layer in New Zealand. In winter time (or ‘fall’ if you are American) Rotorua usually experiences clear frosty or crisp mornings (but not snow) usually becoming ﬁne by early afternoon. Perhaps not warm enough to be naked outdoors (although we do get the odd rouge day), but our B&B is lovely and warm indoors and the spa pool is always hot and relaxing. We often take our guests to a thermal hot water river that is known by locals as a popular skinny dipping river, especially in the early evening. Our ofﬁcial nude beach is 1 hour drive by car at a beach called Papamoa near Tauranga, and is a lovely soft sand beach backed with many sand dunes and has a beautiful ocean for swimming.

Is there such a line that is crossed? Who knows for sure, but I feel I crossed it a few years ago. So, let me take you on my journey into the wonderful world of nudism. It started when a talented friend of mine was putting together a small home based show called "Porn Star Autobiography." The show was based on various reading excerpts from autobiographies of famous porn stars. There 22 “I could feel my dick shrivel in fear not what I was wanting to show my ﬁrst ever audience.” were about 12 readings by various actor/readers, of which 3 had to do nude scenes. I was asked if I would be willing to do one of those nude readings. At ﬁrst my immediate reaction was "Absolutely….sure! What fun!" However, when I realized all the members of the audience would not be nude, I felt the butterﬂies in my stomach start to ﬂop around. Because a few of us were becoming more and more nervous about our nude performances, we decided to do a few practice readings, to see if our stage presence needed work. Our practice session was just a small group: one other nude reader (the straight roommate of the author), a non-nude reader, two "practice audience" members, and me. Even though this was just practice, all of a sudden my decision to be part of this became real! "What was I thinking?" And worse... I could feel my dick shrivel in fear - not what I was wanting to show my ﬁrst ever audience. The none-nude reader went ﬁrst and killed it. I was worried about my reading….and taking off my clothes. The straight guy was next. He had 2 readings but it was the second one which required him to strip down. As he started his reading, I was not thinking about my reading because I was excited to see him strip down. I had always had a crush on him, and the thought of him getting naked in front of me was thrilling. As his last article of clothing hit the ﬂoor and he stood there in all his glory, I could not help but start to "grow" a bit. He was well hung and had some nice low riding balls 23 (my favorite). It was his ﬁrst time getting naked too in front of a group, of mainly gay men. This act, which seems far more stressing than my situation, helped me greatly for what was to become next. I was "up to bat". To say I was a natural would be a complete lie. My reading was horrible; ﬂat, nervous and a poor reader. I was nervous, I told them, hoping inside I could loosen up. The ﬁrst few times, my readings were clothed. , I had a put a lot of work on my presentation, rather than my "presentation". After starting to feel more comfortable with the reading and getting some positive and helpful advice, it came time for the removal of clothes. It was the point in my reading, where it was time for me to change direction. I paused, took a deep breath and dropped my towel. At ﬁrst, I was still scared, but little by little, my head was excited. I did it! I convinced myself it wasn't so bad. Everyone watching in the rehearsal (only about 4 people) was helpful in direction. I looked up and the straight guy was still there in his towel. "Crap!" I could feel it happening, I was getting chunky. As I started to sport a semi-woody, my embarrassment grew. I grabbed my cock, and apologized to the group. All of which told me not to apologize, and that it would be even better if I could do that in front of the real audience. Feeling better, I covered up and all of us went home and prepared for a week later when it was to be the real thing. A crowd of about 30 dressed, mostly gay male audience. My practice reading was nothing….NOTHING, compared to what I was about to do. Again, my stomach started to rumble. Next month……the last minute reading help, the hot, straight man naked in front of me, and the performance reading! 24 FEATURED ARTICLE Can’t Be Naked? Kilt It! As much as I love being naked, there are times you have to wear some clothes. Wearing a kilt is about as close to being naked as you can get. My love affair with kilts began over 10 years ago. I had seen kilts at various street fairs and gay pride festivals, and thought they looked cool. I ﬁnally got the nerve to order one over the net, and I haven’t looked back. Now a day doesn’t go by where I don’t wear a kilt. It ﬁts me, I love how it feels and looks, and I know that I rock it too. By Dan aka KiltManinSoCal www.kiltmaninsocal.wordpress.com Kilts are not for the faint-hearted. You have to have some balls so to speak to wear one. You deﬁnitely will be attracting attention to yourself — but so what? Why be normal? What fun is there in that! They are great conversation starters, and can be dressed up or dressed down to ﬁt just about any situation. I have worn mine to weddings, parties, hiking, shopping, concerts and much more. So where can I buy a kilt you ask? Here’s my list of the top kilt makers on the market — both utility kilts and traditional ones too. 25 Sport Kilt (Sportkilt.com) Are you the sporty type?

Prices range from $109 to $179 for their kilts. Utilikilts (Utilikilts.com) The most famous and one of the most stylish of the utility kilts are made in Seattle, WA.

Other US-based kilt companies include: UT Kilts (UTkilts.com), Bilt Kilt (Biltkilt.com) and Stumptown Kilts (stumptownkilts.com). One word of caution when ordering online: Please be sure to follow the speciﬁc instructions provided by the manufacturer. Your pant size does not necessarily coincide with sizing for kilts. I wouldn’t want you to order the wrong size now. Dan (aka Kilt Man in SoCal) is the author of a blog by the same name, found here. A new blog for gay men that features a mix of pop culture and observations about society in the 21st century from the perspective of a fun, out there, gay guy in a long term committed relationship. Are people, gay, straight or are there gray areas? Who’s to say what is right for a man to wear (i.e. why not Speedos and kilts?) Why can’t we be gay and spiritual? What about letting go of the past (be it friends or possessions?). All these topics and more are addressed on this blog. 27 FEATURED ARTICLE The Naked Truth About Being An Art Model by Paul Hernandez We’ve all watched the movie scene where the virginal, innocent young woman walks towards her ﬁrst-ever art course in college; meets a good-looking college hunk with whom see immediately connects; and proceeds to her art class where, to her surprise, pleasure, and embarrassment, the nude model is the same guy she had been ﬂirting with outside the class. Well, that’s me. I WISH! Modeling in art classes does have this element as one aspect of the job, but it’s also a profession that requires creativity, patience, and discipline and is very educational and rewarding. So, you ask, how did I get this gig? About seven years ago, on the front page of my hometown newspaper, The Orange County Register, I read an article about a woman who modeled in art classes. By this time in my life, I had gotten over any hang ups I had regarding body image and wondered how I would look as a piece of art. I decided to research the subject online, but since I didn’t know what the correct term for art class 28 modeling is, I typed in phrases such as “nude model”, “naked model”, “naked art model”, etc. I got just what you think I would get: PORN. There’s something about “naked” and “nude” that has a way of generating porn. I went in search of an art student, and when I ﬁnally located one, I was told that the artistic term was “life drawing”. The correct vocabulary brought up true art sites discussing this profession, and I was able to research it online and learn what skills the job involved. Life drawing consists of three parts: 1) gestures, which are quick, dynamic poses which involve raised arms, legs, and body twists that cannot be held for a long time, and lasting anywhere from one to ten minutes; 2) short poses, which last 20 to 30 minutes; and 3) long poses, which are 20 to 30 minutes long and require multiple sittings. Every pose requires creativity, but gestures especially require quick thinking. Poses have to be varied and different. Artists get bored very fast, and they like poses that are interesting and challenging to draw. So a model has to ﬁgure out how to 29 move into position quickly, and needs to come up with a large number of them during the class period. Short and long poses require creativity, patience, and discipline. You have to strike a unique pose that can be held for a 20 to 30 minute period. A long pose requires me to remember what position I was in so that I can repeatedly take that position after a short break. Forget about scratching, sneezing, coughing, or twitching. I’ve learned to suppress my urge to move, and I freeze into position. The most difﬁcult part of this line of work is ﬁnding the jobs. I have called colleges, universities, galleries, private schools, etc. Each place has a different way of booking models. Some have one person who handles all the bookings. This is great if you can get the person’s name and you are given a chance. However, if for some reason you get in bad with this person, then you probably can forget about modeling at the location served by him/her. Other places require that you contact the instructor directly, so if there are four instructors, you have to ﬁnd out their names and contact each one. Some art teachers are very set in their ways and use the same models over and over, so your chances of getting to work for them practically requires that a model they currently use retire or die. It’s great to work with the instructors, students and artists. I get educated in art techniques and tricks involved in painting and drawing about color, perspective, and composition that all artists learn. I ﬁnd students who are dedicated and pursue their craft diligently not only in class, but outside of class. They pour hours into their assignments and come up with phenomenal work. It’s rewarding to see young people who are motivated and disciplined, who love what they do. Best of all, I will have a legacy that will continue into the future. People have actually bought paintings of me. I’ve already hung in Las Vegas and the National Museum in Nicaragua. Who knows, one day I could be THE male Mona Lisa, admired and loved the world over. Too bad I won’t be around to enjoy it. I am available as a nude model for serious art students and photographers in the Orange/Los Angeles county areas.

A Guide to Starting a Nudist Club. If you don’t have a nudist group in your city, this series will get you on your way to starting your own. When I was a teenager, my parents would take our family to a campground about an hour from our suburban home. I hated camping. It made no sense to me why we had to leave our beautiful home with three bedrooms, two kitchens and two bathrooms to compact our family of ﬁve into a small 30’ trailer. I had made a few friends at the campground and I was always happy to see them, but I was a kid who would rather have the comfort of my bedroom, my records and my twin bed rather than downgrade my life every weekend and suffer through scratchy sheets, a shared, cramped bathroom and voracious mosquitoes. The one thing I enjoyed? Midnight swims with my camping friends. Midnight swims always meant skinny dipping and I loved how I could 32 dare my young self to get naked in front of everyone. Since I was always the ﬁrst with my clothes off when we reached the lake, my friends nicknamed me “Adam”, the ﬁrst legendary nudist. I enjoyed seeing the variety of bodies on display under the summer moonlight. These swims were my ﬁrst lesson in body types that were different from my own: men who had bigger dicks than my teenaged penis, uncut cocks, ﬂabby and toned bodies, and yes, even women's breasts. It wasn't until several years after my skinny dipping days that I started learning how certain body types were "more desirable" than others. Magazines and other media made it clear that my skinny frame and wide hips were not “masculine enough.” As I approached high school, I started to withdraw from the naked swims, ashamed that my body didn't measure up to what the average person would ﬁnd attractive. None of my friends told me this, it was something that I had decided on my own because of the magazines I read and the TV I watched. For years, I tried all kinds of remedies to "ﬁx" my body: Exercise, diet, layering clothes to appear more fully developed. Nothing worked. Nothing helped ﬁx the perception I had of myself. Looking back on photographs of myself at the time, my body was perfectly normal. In fact, it looked great. My body wasn't broken, my self-perception was. For the next 17 years, I didn’t get naked in front of other people because I felt like I did not measure up to what I thought a beautiful body should look like. 20 Years Later I loved working in Chicago. My client had put me up in a beautiful two-bedroom suite overlooking Lake Michigan. The ﬂoor-to-ceiling windows were an exhibitionist’s dream, but my sheers were always drawn if I wasn’t clothed. I wouldn’t want some boater several miles out on the lake to be able to see me. It was 1997, and while my body developed since my teenage years, my self conﬁdence was still as stunted as it was in 1977. I was new to Chicago and was interested in ﬁnding some friends. I jumped on a chat board on AOL (that should tell you how long ago it was), and started talking with a guy named Mike. Mike lived on the North side of Chicago and he was extremely welcoming. He told me places to visit, restaurants to avoid and he gave some good advice how to navigate the city. Mike was genuinely interested in making sure that my time in Chicago was going to be well spent. After a couple hours of idle online chit-chat, he asked me if I would like to come to a potluck at his house that Wednesday. "The guys get together to watch South Park and StarTrek. You'll meet some great men, and you’ll make some new friends”, Mike said. “It sounds like you would ﬁt right in.” It sounded perfect. I wrote down Mike’s address and conﬁrmed how to get there. I wasn’t that familiar with Chicago’s train system yet, but Mike assured me it would be easier than driving and trying to ﬁnd a place to park on the crowded streets. Then, out of nowhere, Mike asked, "Have you ever been to a clothing optional event?" I was caught off guard and my eyes widened having no idea where this question was leading. Trying to sound hip and cosmopolitan I responded, "Yes, a few times." "Wonderful. The potluck is a nudist event. I'll see you Wednesday!" With that, Mike left the chat room and I sat staring at the screen wondering what I had just gotten myself into. For the next few days I went into ﬁts of panic about this silly dinner event. Every time I thought about it, a knot would grow in my stomach. I had spent the last two decades believing that my body was horriﬁc, and there was no way I could transform it to any semblance of “beautiful” before Wednesday’s potluck. I didn't show up at Mike's that Wednesday. I was too ashamed and terriﬁed to go. “What if everyone looks better than me? What if my dick isn't big enough? What if this turns into a big orgy?” I had dozens of questions, and each question fed into my anxiety. I remember taking a long walk down on Navy Pier that night trying to distract myself from what I imagined was going on at 33 Mike’s. I tried to assure myself that I had made the right choice by saying, “They wouldn’t want me there, anyway. I don’t look good enough.” Mike caught me online on Thursday and we chatted a bit more. I made up a lame excuse about working late and that I was sorry that I couldn't attend. "No problem. We meet every Wednesday at the same time. Come next week." I think Mike knew that I had some hesitations about coming but he continued to be kind and welcoming and most of all, patient. I deliberated for the next week. Should I go? Shouldn’t I go? What’s the worst that could happen? On the next Wednesday at 5:30pm, I stopped at a deli, picked up a side dish and took the El (train) to Mike's apartment. The train zips by at a great clip, but it was still a 40 minute ride north. That gave me plenty of time to get nervous, calm myself down and repeat the cycle several times. When I got off of the train, my heartbeat started to quicken from my nerves. Looking at the directions Mike gave me, it took me about 10 minutes to ﬁnd his brownstone. The addresses on the buildings were too far away for me to see without my glasses, so I had passed it a few times. Once I veriﬁed the correct building with the help of an older man, I entered the gate and rang the bell. Mike buzzed me in and told me his apartment was on the seventh ﬂoor. There was no elevator. The long climb to Mike's had me gasping for breath on the fourth ﬂoor. By the time I got to the 5th ﬂoor, I could hear a door open above me and a voice call, "Nick? Are you OK?” "Yes, I'm almost there!” I panted. When I got to the seventh ﬂoor, hufﬁng and pufﬁng like the Big Bad Wolf, there was Mike standing naked in his doorway to greet me. He gave me a big hug which I found a little uncomfortable (I was being hugged by a naked man in a hallway), and he escorted me inside. In his apartment there were at least 40 naked men of all shapes, sizes and colors. It was like swimming naked again! There was no one judging anyone else, there was no shame of not being “perfect,” there was just a camaraderie among men. Mike led me to the kitchen where I dropped off my deli-dish. I was the only clothed person in the apartment, something that I found even more uncomfortable than being hugged by Mike in the hallway. I was certainly overdressed for this party and I felt the need to remedy that. After a few minutes of polite 34 knew that I had some hesitations about coming but he continued to be kind and welcoming and most of all, patient. I deliberated for the next week. Should I go?

Did you bring a bag to put them in?" I nodded that I did. "Good. Come join us when you're ready." Mike left the room and I started to undress. Another guy came in, smiled and he started to undress. He introduced himself as Greg, pumped my hand, and within seconds was out of his clothes and on to the party. I ﬁnished undressing, carefully putting my clothes and wallet in my bag, and taking a big breath of courage, I walked naked into a room ﬁlled with what would become new friends. I spent nearly every Wednesday evening that particular summer at Mike's. Each visit was a new lesson in acceptance of my own body. My body wasn't the most muscular or deﬁned of the group, but it wasn't the most out of shape. I was, frankly, average. My guess is that most of you are average as well. No matter what your body type, getting naked will do wonderful things to your sense of body issues. 35 advertise with us Making advertising affordable for everyone to promote their business.

Have you always been uninhibited? Trevor Wayne: (Trevor) No. I'm not really even comfortable being nude in front of the camera. It's awkward, but I just push it all aside and try to create the best image I possibly can. I just try to remember not to compare myself to anyone else. I am me. GNM: In addition to being a model, you are also an artist. I follow you on Instagram and on Facebook. You seem to have a level of comfort with yourself and with life that most men never ďŹ nd. What's your secret for enjoying a "Balls-Out" sort of life? Trevor: I guess my motto is "Damned if you do, damned if you don't". You can't make everyone happy. I'd rather people like me or hate me based on who I really am, rather than a false image. So I just do what I want and don't worry about what others think. Sometimes people get it, sometimes they don't. There will always be someone to judge. That is their problem and insecurity, not mine. GNM: Who is the creative designer behind your photographs? Trevor: It is usually always a collaboration with the 40 I guess my motto is "Damned if you do, damned if you don't.â€? You can't make everyone happy. I'd rather people like me or hate me based on who I really am, rather than a false image. -Trevor Wayne 41 photographer. If I have an idea I think of who I know that would be best to shoot it, and WANT to shoot it. Not all photographers like my ideas, and vice versa. Currently I have changed over my "Pin-Up Show"' nudie collector postcard set to be all images by Austin Young. He has the perfect eye for pin up as well as pop art, in which I think the two have a great connection. I am very proud of the new set that is still currently evolving with us. It is not as hardcore as the last set. I wanted to bring back fun and the implied nudity aspect of pinup. Though there are full nudes included, it is not the focus of each and every image as it had been before. GNM: What's more important to you creating lasting art, or creating art for "the now"? Why? Trevor: Creating for now, I guess. Because you never know what will last and what won't. If I start to worry about creating something iconic then it hinders the creative ďŹ‚ow. It has to be ďŹ‚uid and not have expectations. That is when the best art is created, in my opinion. That is what enables artists to take the chances, and follow through with them, without fear of being judged. I have stopped myself from creating before because I'd ask myself "Is anyone going to like or care about this?". That is not where creation comes from. You just have to do it, do what you feel, and if you scrap it later- so what? At least you had the chance to surprise yourself. I have and it's great! 42 GNM: What's your favorite quote, and why? Trevor: This will show what a dork I am. It's from the TV series "Angel". It's something like "Nothing we do matters, all that matters is what we do." It was about fate. For me it comes back to your question of having a "balls out life" and being free. No matter who you are, or how famous, or what kind of legend- you will still die. You will still be forgotten somewhere along time. The world will still end in billions of years because of the dying sun, or meteors or some event. Nothing we do truly matters. What matters is what we do. Meaning live life for YOU. Be the best you. Do what you can to help others. Clean up after yourself. Love yourself and others. Be happy NOW. Don't pressure yourself with what will be. That will kill the present. Be true to yourself and things really do work. If someone tells you that you can't do what you want, or be what you want, then ditch them. GNM: Tell us about a typical day in the life of Trevor Wayne. Trevor: It's pretty simple really. I get up.. clean (I like cleaning, I should be a maid), check emails. Work on art a little. Maybe thrift store shopping, followed by a game night with friends. Video games or cards. I'm a homebody. I don't' really like nightclubs or crowded areas. That is just a typical day.. on the not typical days I am doing photoshoots, art openings, charity events, acting. GNM: What do you wish people knew about you? Trevor: I have no idea. I'm an open book. ABOUT TREVOR WAYNE Trevor attended the Academy of Art in Chicago.

People are drawn to the coast, whether it’s to play in the surf, build sand castles, take long strolls at sunset, lie out under the sun, or sip daiquiris at the beachfront bar. Some us even enjoy stripping down to our teenyweeny bikinis or Speedos, while others dare to bare it all, and wear nothing but the metaphorical birthday suit. Chances are, if you’ve gone to a beach on the Mediterranean, you’ve experienced a bit of nudity, at least from the waist up. And maybe you were even brave enough to join in the fun and set yourself free, so to speak. Perhaps you actually felt liberated and are daring to go completely bare this summer. firstname.lastname@example.org Well, good news, because we have a list of nude beaches you don’t want to miss….and if you actually do want to miss them, now you know where not to go. Haulover Park, South Beach, Miami Florida beaches are renowned worldwide for their pristine white sands and invitingly warm waters, and Haulover Beach Park in South Beach, Miami is no exception. Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intercoastal Waterway, the almost half mile stretch of clothing-optional coastline attracts thousands of visitors per year. If you aren’t brave enough to strip down, there are parts of the beach where clothing is mandatory. But we recommend stepping out of your comfort 45 TRAVEL Some Of The Best Nude Beaches (con’t) zone (and out of your bathing suit) and getting involved a nude volleyball game or going skinny dipping in the salty sea. the people, and respect the beach. This means no photography, no littering and no straying outside of clothingoptional areas if you decide to strip down. Praia Do Pinho, Santa Catarina, Brazil On this naturalist beach, nudity is required. Yes, you read right, you have to be naked. Most nude beaches practice nudism, and therefore are clothing optional. Naturalism, however, is a philosophical life practice that involves people living together nude, in harmony with nature. Because of their views, visitors to the beach must participate in total nudity while on the sand, and be warned that they will personally police the beach to guarantee respect for the rules. There is an ‘adaptation area’ that allows visitors to remain clothed as long as they don’t go out on the sand. They also divide the beach into a section for accompanied visitors and a section for unaccompanied men, in an eﬀort to cut down on inappropriate or uncomfortable behavior. Sadly, they require homosexual couples visiting the beach to stay in the unaccompanied men area. Black’s Beach, San Diego, California As San Diego’s only clothing optional beach, this Southern California coastline has a group of dedicated beach users that call themselves the Black’s Beach Bares. Aligned with the Naturist Society, (The mission of The Naturist Society is to promote body acceptance through clothing-optional recreation using the tools of education and community outreach.The Naturist Society views clothing-optional recreation as essential to body acceptance. Through clothingoptional recreation, participants, be they individuals, couples or families, learn to appreciate the diversity of body types and gain a better understanding and acceptance of their own bodies.) this group is also environmentally conscious and organizes trash pickups, donates materials to conservation groups, and provides materials so other naturist groups can enjoy the beach. If you want to visit Black’s Beach and have fun in the sun, they ask that you respect the boundaries, respect Pampelonne, St. Tropez, France If you want to experience nude beach luxury, then head on over to the French Riviera where you will have the chance to see celebrities in the buﬀ.

Head on down to the Plage de Tahiti for a public stretch of clothing optional coastline, but be aware that this area is still somewhat exclusive and brings out some of the best bodies, whether real or fake, so you may ﬁnd yourself covering up pretty quick if you aren’t able to handle the competition. 46 TRAVEL Some Of The Best Nude Beaches (con’t) Es Cavallet Beach, Ibiza, Spain Ibiza is a global hotspot for party enthusiasts, with worldrenowned clubs, restaurants, hotels, and bars; there is no shortage of options for revelry.

It was the late seventies, I was living in New York City and being gay, young and handsome paid off in a big, fast way. I jumped from bar to bar, bed to bed, and I'm still here to talk about it. But this is how it starts… In the fall of 1977, New York’s biggest nightclub was about to open at 254 West 54 St...STUDIO 54. I went to the opening and never left. I was thrown into a world of drugs, sex, glitz and glamour. By 1979, I had already slept with Calvin Klein (see Obsession: The Lives and Times of Calvin Klein, by Steven Gaines), David Geffen, Clive Davis, and Prince Egon von Fürstenberg (yes her ex-husband and heir to Fiat). Into my life comes a man that was even crazier than myself. I started dating Peter Allen--Liza Minnelli’s ﬁrst husband, whom she met when he was working as a back-up singer on a cruise with her mother, Judy Garland. Life was fast: LA, NY, the South Paciﬁc. Life was good, but he was just out of his mind. We lasted about three years. Young Sal DeFalco I remember one evening on a drug run up in the balcony. There was this small private room off the ladies room. (The sign said "PRESS"! Ha!) The smell of poppers was in the air and the sounds of pleasure could be heard coming from the balcony. I walked up the stairwell and reached the top and there in front of me was a hot looking black man banging this white boy! His pants were pulled down just far enough 55 (con’t) Studio54 to get the job done (pre-AIDS, no condoms). As I walked along the row of seats, glasses on the ﬂoor and bodies ﬁlling most of the upper rows, I turned and walked upward to the sea of men playing. On the seats, over the seats, it's was so amazing! I was a bartender, and I knew if I joined in I would get special treatment. So, I took off all my clothes, walked in just wearing sneakers, and came out with a huge smile on my face! Then I simply ran back down to work. Life was good! Now, I'm writing a book about my days in NYC as a young, hung Italian Stallion (as said by author Sharon Churcher, co-writer of Obsession in an interview with Geraldo Rivera about the Calvin Klein book) Not sure what year…‘94 or ‘95. It was crazy! Back in January, I appeared on the CBS morning show in a segment about the auction of Steve Rubell memorabilia in West Palm Beach. That same weekend, I was interviewed by the New York Times and my partner and I landed on the cover of the living section of The Miami Herald. You see, on sale at the auction was a picture of me dancing with Diana Ross. I went to bid on it, but it was sold for 1,700 dollars! Busy month.
