So, for the first official day of my 10 Naked Days, I was going to FLOG, the local monthly BDSM play party, for the first time in 2012. Normally when I go to FLOG, I’m fully clothed. Full nudity is not allowed there and I’m personally opposed to the wearing of thongs, so I figured I’d rock a jockstrap. I was running late and couldn’t find my leather jockstrap that gives proper coverage to the crotch area. I had to go with a small cotton jockstrap that I almost never wear. I was practically walking out the door when I looked down and saw my pubic hair sprouting from both sides of the jockstrap. The laws that govern public nudity in St. Louis are so strange, that I suspect, as they are written, thongs are street legal and jockstraps aren’t. With that in mind, I thought maybe exposed pubes might be pushing the legal envelope. I don’t shave my pubic hair. I don’t like how it looks, it itches like hell growing back and rightly or wrongly, shaved pubes scream “gay porn star” to me. I figured I’d shave just enough so that they wouldn’t show past my jockstrap. But, like I said I was in a hurry, and I shaved too far. Now I had a big bald spot on my crotch. It wouldn’t have been a big deal most weeks, but since this was 10 Naked Days, potentially, a lot more people would be seeing my crotch than usual. So I had to go all the way and shave my pubes completely.
The thing that sucks the most is that I have a photo shoot next week that I’ve been planning for months, and really didn’t want to go into it with shaved pubes, but oh well.
One quick aside: You never fully appreciate how often people spit when they talk until you have a bunch of close-quarters conversations while almost naked.
