Our Core of Masculinity

Posted on August 21, 2014 at 6:57am 0 Comments

Our core of masculinity, mine and yours,

Is like a holy of holies, a source into which God pours

Oil of gladness

Not just to anoint, but for fuel to fill the golden candlesticks

To burn and shine and power, to give us light in difficult hour.

Why then do we have such trouble this holy place accessing?

Do we fear the awesome power? Do we seek to control the blessing?

Are we preoccupied with our manly flesh so visible to others?

Is all that matters how I…

Masculinity...(lol.....what else?!)

Posted on July 13, 2014 at 9:58am 0 Comments

A good friend and brother (not on AoM) wrote:



"Learning to enjoy and self-affirm my own God-given birthright of intrinsic masculinity. There is something incredibly testosterone rich with a healthy self appraisal."

A poem from young manhood

Posted on May 9, 2014 at 7:30am 0 Comments

So I sent a group message describing my quandary, and I now forget what group it was...Buck Naked, I think. After getting zero replies, and now having a bit of time to handle it, have decided to post this gem of naive and raw masculinity from my late teens or early 20s. I have shared it with a few men who say that it did resonate with them, and so I am…

Why Buck Naked

Posted on March 30, 2014 at 9:16am 0 Comments

There are many reasons why after living over 50 years that I seem to have an ever-growing inclination to go "buck naked", and for joining the BN group here. Sure, I have always recognized the beauty of the body, and I think the main two driving factors are honesty as in "naked truth", and idealism, the recognition of the "masculine ideal" portrayed in classical art, especially sculpture.

As for the ideal, the first pictorial image that likely pops in one's head historically…
