It's unfair to assume that the ad is suggesting that a public listing of your bedpost roster is necessary for safe sexual health. That's not the case. All it seems to imply is that you should simply be real about sexuality in this modern age -- you're probably not Christopher Columbus landing upon virgin banks.
I truly believe that the offer to awaken ones soul with exploration, and the discovery of new cultures and the experience of immersion in something brand new will get people to live healthy. To truly live for the moment. Nothing inspires me to go out and be active like the thought of climbing Machu Picchu in South America.

Once you become a parent, you're rarely alone. Your kids are right there, no matter if you're changing your clothes, taking a shower or going to the bathroom. So is it okay to be naked in front of you...
I wondered what would happen if Canada started showing full frontal nudity on prime time TV? Would it create a nation full of sex-starved creatures? People did not seem sex-starved in Britain. In fact, I would say in general the Europeans have a much healthier attitude towards nudity and sexuality.
Last Thursday, my almost-eight-year-old son's innocence was forever tainted when he discovered, through a Google search, bare-naked ladies (not the talented Canadian singing ones), on his iPod touch. We had a 'situation' here and I needed to deal with it. I didn't want my son to think he was that bad or a deviant.
It's always been a big question to me where my comfort lies in the area of revealing my body. Am I am doing the world any good when I show off my frame? Am I building self-confidence or feeding the machine that tells us women should be seen, not heard. And better yet, women should be nearly naked, and perpetually on display in 2012?
Yesterday I posted a sublime, cheeky photo on Facebook. The reaction from my friends was swift: everyone loved it! So you can imagine my surprise when I logged onto Facebook this morning and found the picture had been removed due to its violating community standards.
At the nude beach, I wanted to see wrinkles and sagging bits, hair tangling where you never see it tangling in modern porn. I never stared, but I'd glance discreetly and register. My looking was always connected to the process of affirming that I, too, was human.
While some feel there is a serious issue of freedom of expression at play in Brian Coldin's nudity case, there is a time and place to express yourself. I'm no prude, but the sight of some dude with his 'pendulum' a-sway for all to behold, is something I can live without!
