After reading posts on this forum and looking at Freeballing.com forums and galleries, it seems to me as if some supposed freeballers appear to confuse freeballing for its own sake with exhibitionism. Whaen you read posts about guys who take decency to their limits when freeballing in public, It makes me think they WANT other people to see they dont wear underwear and even worse want them to get a glimpse (or more) of their genitals!

Now to me freeballing is all about the comfort of it, and the private expereince of going around with no underwear (being a secret rebel if you like). Its not about parading around shoving your underwearlessness in other peoples faces, or worse being indecent.

At least this site doent have a gallery. Freeballing.com does have a member gallery, supposedly for members to post pics of them freeballing. This in itself id bad enough, but many of the pics are downright pornographic, showing guys penises in various states of arousal and even masturbating. Quite frankly if i wanted to see such images I'd go to a gay porn site! (I don't BTW).

You are quite right, Andrew. Different guys have different reasons for freeballing and some use it as form of advertising to attract sexual partners. Years ago TFF had a photo forum at Yahoo for members to post their photos but so many pornographic photos were posted that we closed it down. Those of us who enjoy the comfort aspects of freeballing are concern that such exhibitionism gives freeballing a bad image in the eyes of the public and only deter public acceptance of freeballing as a legitimate clothing choice.

I agree. My clothing choices are for freedom and comfort. And I LOVE the whole "secret rebel" thing. However, I hesitated at first to even comment because of the overwhelming number of people who seemed to use this option as a way to draw attention to themselves.
So, in short, nicely put.

Exhibitionism is not really a part of honest freeballing which, while it has a sexy component, is mostly about personal comfort. That said, I am definitely not modest and have no false body shame. I don't mind a small rip in my 501s or cutoffs that show skin; I usually levae a botton or two open in my fly; but I do not allow my "private parts" to show in public, other than the (covered) bulge that naturally occurs on a male. In private and with friends, thats a different story. Then I'm often naked. On a clothing optional beach, I am naked. On a textile beach, I wear those horrible board shorts. On this list I would not post a picture showing more than I would show in public. On other lists, I have posted naked pix of myself as appropriate to those lists. On some lists, I do not even mention my sexuality, though you friends here know I am gay and have a long term relationship. Simply stated, one must act appropriate to one's location.

My opinion -- I own it.

Hugz,
Bobby

While I agree totally that FBing is about comfort and freedom and that, ideally, it can be done without others knowing whether one wears UW, there is far too much modesty and false body consciousness, especially it seems in USA society. There is nothing wrong with a peak at a guys skin or penises if, for instance, they're wearing shorts. And there's certainly nothing wrong w/ guys showing nipples and other non-genital skin.

Then what is the point of leaving the buttons open? The only reason is to show weiner. I cannot see any other reason.

If you truely wanted not to show your private parts in public you would close all the buttons.
Bobby's whole statement is contradictary in my opinion.

It seems contradictory on the face of it, but one can leave one or two buttons open without showing anything. The fun part is that other guys often look, wanting to be able to see more, getting their imagination going about what they might see if another button "accidentally" comes undone or maybe he sees it in just the right angle and lighting. It's just a teaser. Kind of like a woman wearing a short skirt so that guys watch hoping she'll reveal something more, but never does.

Thanks, Ken, for explaining that. I just didn't know how to respond. That's absolutely true -- I do generally leave the top and bottom fly buttons unbuttoned, and I do not "show" anything I shouldn't.

Well gays may enjoy this peek-a-boo game but what kind of message does it send to the 90% of people who aren't gay?

I don't want my freeballing being assoicated with sexual tease and exhibitionism.
