I’ve had some time to wander around the blogosphere. In my travels, I’ve discovered that there are quite a few people, women mostly, who celebrate their bodies. That’s probably no surprise to you. But what delighted me was that these women, whose images I love, don’t celebrate the perfect, skinny, 20-something perfect body. They celebrate real bodies. Here is one site that has an endless array of amazing images. You’ll note the women in these pictures have a wide variety of body types. But all the men are fit and young. Interesting.
I don’t look like the buff guys who post pictures of themselves wearing chastity devices. My images are carefully edited to avoid revealing my mature, out-of-shape body. I didn’t want to destroy any illusions you may have about how I look; at least until now.
Mrs. Lion and I both need to lose weight. Over the years my stomach has gotten bigger and my ass flatter. Then I lost weight and I have excess stomach and ass skin. I have a terrible body image. I think my body is ugly.
Since starting this blog, I’ve wondered if the way we look in your imagination is more important than our reality. I think it is. I’ll soon know if our readership falls away.
I’m going to start working with a trainer to regain the strength I lost after being inactive for the last eight months. I’ll continue losing weight. That’s the good stuff. The bad is that so far I don’t like how I look even as I get thinner.
Like many men, I don’t look at myself in the mirror. When I shave, I do it by touch. I use an electric razor. I think that pictures of me with clothes on, look pretty good. But naked, I’m fat and ugly.
I’ve noticed that many female sex bloggers seem to have overcome body image issues and happily post pictures of their imperfect selves. Male bloggers who publish more than penis and chastity device pictures, have buff bodies. The rest of us do without illustrations.
Women bloggers who are looking for partners always specify, under 30 and fit as requirements to apply. Since guys stereotypically want fit girls in their twenties, it’s understandable that women looking for submissive men want the male equivalent of those perfect twenty-somethings. I always believed women were more mature in their sexual outlook than men. Nope, not these bloggers.
As I get thinner,, loose skin is revealed. You can see it in the rear view I included with this post. I can’t imagine ever celebrating this body. Mrs. Lion likes it, especially this view. She must need glasses.
