Here we are, at the end of the month-long celebration of the self. The purpose of Masturbation Month is to get more people to admit it is a natural, normal, and healthy activity that should be enjoyed by all. It should be discussed openly. It should, as former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders suggested, be taught.
So the visit with my nephew went very well. He actually said thank you for being so candid and open about things, and admitted he learned some stuff. Yes, of course, many conversations had to do with cock, boners, jacking off, and girls.
He's grown up very well adjusted. He and my brother belong to a nudist camp where they spend many summer weekends lying by the pool and swimming.
He's still a virgin and is perfectly happy to remain that way until he finds the right woman. Though his buddies (who came over for an afternoon because they wanted to meet the "cool" aunt and uncle) kid him about it.
They'd all been sharing a condo for the week to celebrate a 21st birthday. Five young guys getting drunk and stupid. Yet, all of them comfortable in their (male) skin - they actually shared beds and pull-out couches. And joked about "knees in the back all night."
This is the portion of the younger generation we can be proud of. Kind, funny, but above all open and honest about their bodies.
My buddy's book signing: total bust.
One person showed up. The guy who arranged took responsibility for the low turn-out, and asked to reschedule.
