The World Through My Eyes
The World Through My Eyes: A collection of essays, reflections and thoughts about men, sex, love, relationships, politics, friendships, nudism, current events, social concerns, humanitarian issues, religion and all those wonderful experiences that constitute life as seen and felt by me: a thirty-something Deaf Gay man of mixed racial heritage (half-black, half-white) living in the Virginia Beach area of the United States. A scrapbook of my life. I've been a confirmed Gay nudist for the past 20 years (since puberty). Sometimes, we just need to step back and chill and try not to be so serious and tense. Life is short, stand up and get into it! firstname.lastname@example.org.

Kwanzaa is the seven-day celebration of family, community and culture that is observed December 26 through January 1. It honors both the African-American and Pan-African heritage of all peoples of African descent. The Seven Priciples of Kwanzaa encourage our people in faith, independence, pride and self-sufficiency. The Seven Priciples and their meaning are:
Ujima: Collective work and responsibility
Ujamaa: Cooperative economics

The picture above is by Tom of Finland, a noted gay artist, who often illustrated the characters of the leather and fetish members of gay life. This one, aside from the holiday theme shows Santa stuffing his junk inside a stocking. Nothing wrong with that! Many of us welcome Santa's junk, or any other cock, anytime during the year. This is only natural to us as gay men. But in this day and time, it isn't all that simple anymore.
We all need to be responsible and protect both ourselves and our sexual partners. It makes no difference if our partner is a one-time hook-up, an anonymous trick or a faithful lover. Every sexual encounter is the same. If there's a possibility for the exchange of any body fluid, then we need to act as reasonable and responsible men. Cover the junk and protect ourselves and our men that we're sexing. It's that simple. I can't break it down any other way.
It's all about wearing a condom when we're having sex. If you take the dick, then you need to make sure the cock has a condom on before you allow it to tap your ass. If you give the dick, then you put a condom on before you even think about getting any. That's the way it is. By the way, condoms are everyone's responsibility, so there should always be one available. It's not solely the duty of the giver or receiver, but both.
Many of us have rounds of social activities planned for the season, as hosts or as guests. This presents opportunities for possible sexual engagements. Shop early and make certain plenty of condoms and water-based lubricant on hand. It isn't fun to be in the heat of passion and realize that your supply is empty. Plan ahead and avoid the rush.
A gift suggestion for a good friend? A stocking filled with condoms. What better way to show that you care than to share some lifesavers with those we love?

These carnal delights only need a little imagination. Each picture features men tasting the masculine organ and the shape resembles that of the traditional holiday emblem: a Christmas tree. Threat your eyes on these bois as they treat themselves to one of our favorite treats: a nice hard dick!
Ho! Ho! Ho! Deck your halls while you lick those balls! These guyz are getting into the spirit of the season; don't wait until the last minute. Get out and get you some Christmas Cheer too! Ho! Ho! Ho!

I was raised and consider myself a member of the Greek Orthodox Church. I also have a mind that I use and am able to see the difference between the words of mortal men and the Words of God. That being said, one of the favorite of all the Saints in the Orthodox Church is St. Nicholas of Myra, who lived from 270 A.D. to 343 A.D. He was the Bishop of Myra, in what is now Turkey. Because there were many miracles credited to his intervention, he is also known as St. Nicholas the WonderWorker. St. Nicholas had a reputation for anonymous gift-giving, such as leaving coins in the shoes of children. For this reason, he became the historical model for what is now the Santa Claus legend. His feast day is December 6, annually.
My parents taught my older sisters and myself of the responsibility of sharing with others and of helping those not quite as fortunate as ourselves. Today, I celebrate St. Nicholas Day by making a donation to a charity of my choice. I give to various charities throughout the year; however, I set aside a certain amount every payday for my St. Nicholas Stash. My partner does the same and each year on December 6, we make our contribution to a service organization that we've agreed to support for that particular year. It may or may not be a religious charity.
After making our gift, we generally treat ourselves to a special dinner out as a couple or with friends. This is followed by a luxurious bath together and then our own private celebration. Happy St. Nicholas Feast!
