Have you heard of Two Bad Tourists, gay bloggers David and Auston? They run a well-known LGBT+ travel blog with amazing guides on international gay-friendly destinations, festivals, and events with recommendations for dining, gay nightlife, hotels, tours, sightseeing and more. Recently, they featured Everything To Sea in an article called, “Five Types of Male Travelers.” The post serves to answer a question that we get very frequently, “Who exactly comes on the naked sailing trips?” We’ve reposted the article here for you to get all the answers.
There are dozens of reefs in the Coral Triangle that attract snorkelers and scuba divers alike. We’ve been sailing in the area for several years, and we’ve done an extensive amount of underwater curation. We take our travelers to the very best sites – some of which fly completely under the radar, unbeknownst to the crowds. In this blog post, we’ll take you through the top five snorkeling spots that every guy on an Everything To Sea trip gets to experience – and yes, you can be naked, if you want. Please excuse the generic location names – we want to keep these reefs our little secret!
As the children’s author Dr. Seuss wrote in The Foot Book, “Left foot, Right foot. Feet, Feet, Feet. How many, many feet you meet.” On Everything To Sea trips, we do meet a lot of bare feet on board our boat. In fact, the first thing we tell our travelers when they step onto the deck is, “Guys, shoes off please!” In this blog post, let’s take a peek at the subject of living life barefoot through the mind of Max, co-founder of Everything To Sea.
At Everything To Sea, we sometimes get inquiries from guys who want to be naked with other men, but they’re holding back due to fear of rejection. We’re proud to provide a body-positive space for all men to engage in social nudity, free of judgment to others. But what about judging yourself? Giving yourself a break from self-criticism is extremely freeing and empowering. Envision a future where every body belongs.
Despite the body-positive movement mostly being focused on women, it’s important to acknowledge that men have body image struggles, too. Unfortunately they’re not as openly discussed or diagnosed. One condition in particular is disproportionally affecting men, accelerated by gym culture and fitness influencers. Read more in the following excerpt from a mental health article by VeryWell Mind.
When was the last time you really connected with nature? I’m not talking about naturism – “being naked”. I literally mean nature. Flora and fauna.
I know, I know… we’re always going off on how great it is “to be naked”. Au naturel. And it is – don’t get me started! But in this post, I’m going to share a stream of consciousness on the nothing-less-than-fucking-amazing natural world.
Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of sailing with interesting men from all walks of life, and Tony is no exception. He’s a veterinarian by day, and a Dom, escort, and porn star by night. Tony inspired us with his unique, personal stories while aboard the August 2022 departure. We’d like to highlight Tony in this post as part of our blog series called “Meet Another Everything To Sea Traveler.”
Hedonism often gets a bad rap. But upon taking a closer look at what hedonism actually is (and is not), you may be surprised that it’s poor reputation is unwarranted. In fact, “rational hedonism” is closely linked to health and wellness. Today we’re posting an excerpt from an article originally posted on TheConversation.com that takes a deep dive into hedonism and how it affects well-being.
Let’s take a look – literally – at all things below the water, on Everything To Sea trips. In this post, we’ll minimize the words, and focus on images of things we see IN the sea… Get ready for some amazing photos of sea life that showcase incredible underwater interactions.
We’re born in a beautiful bundle of flesh. It’s not in our inherent nature to cover up our bodies… it’s societal pressure that makes people not even question it. In fact, when you take a look at all of human history, wearing clothing is a recent trend, and it’s even newer in Southeast Asia. The spread of religion and colonialism influenced people to cover up, despite centuries of nudity accepted as the norm. Today, it’s only isolated groups who were more immune to colonial influence, that still remain nude.
At Everything To Sea, we sometimes get inquiries from guys that are along these lines: “I’m dreaming of joining a trip, but I’m worried I won’t fit in because of my age.” The fact is, men from every decade join our trips. And we’ve found that everyone has something to contribute, which ultimately forms a unique voyage. From muscles and eye-candy, to knowledge and experience and depth, to humor and positive attitude, it’s our firm belief that every man who comes aboard our ship is interesting on some level. And it’s the variety of backgrounds and life experiences that make each of our trips memorable and fun.
Aging is a topic that’s normally perceived as negative… and related to loss. But there are legitimate, positive gains to growing older – though often overlooked or downplayed. We enjoyed this article from Outside Magazine, which talks “on the harder-to-measure benefits of age and experience.” It dives into scientifically measured benefits of growing older. We hope you enjoy this blog post – why don’t you tell us your reaction, in the Comments section, below!
Tim followed his feeling, left his country for the first time, and traveled halfway across the world to go nude sailing with us. Alone. What he ultimately experienced was an unparalleled journey of discovery, friendship, nudism, and freedom.
This is what we offer with Your Private Journey. In just a few words, it’s three guys, one ship, and no clothes. Everything To Sea is the only company in the world that offers this custom experience – where co-founders Dave and Max set sail with just one other guy.
It was a great pleasure for us to show Tim this part of the world, and we could go on and on about it… but we’ll let him tell you the details of his journey. Read the full story, in his own words:
Get Your Dream Relationship by Setting Boundaries
If you’ve gone through our website, you know that our most unique offering (in fact, we’re the only company in the world that offers this!) is Your Private Journey. So hopefully, you’ve heard about Your Private Journey. Now, what about Your Dream Relationship? In this post, we discuss something we can’t set up for you: this one, you’ve got to do yourself. Read on, for tips on how to get Your Dream Relationship.
The fact is, boundaries are essential in healthy partnerships. And we each have our own set of boundaries – whether we’re fully conscious of them or not. For example, “I need you to be on time for our date night,” or, “I don’t want to be touched there.” When boundaries are crossed in relationships, it’s normal to feel frustrated, disappointed, or sad. For many, it’s a great challenge to actually state boundaries out loud due to fear of judgement, abandonment, or rejection. But people aren’t mind readers, and that’s why rules and boundaries must be made explicit – and the sooner, the better. In this article, we’re going to dive into how to set boundaries, especially when it comes to open relationships.
A look at the curious ways the English language deals with nudity.
We are big language nerds over here at Everything To Sea. We love sharing and comparing the nuances and idiosyncrasies that exist in English versus other languages. In fact, altogether our team can speak 8 different languages, including German, French, Indonesian, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Javanese, and English. We couldn’t resist sharing excerpts from a blog written by Paul Rousse, editor of Naturist Travel/H&E Naturist. He takes a deep dive into the various ways that people have used the English language to describe nudity, from the coarse and comical to the polished and old-fashioned.
There are many so-called “sexual health experts” out there, including family members, religious leaders, and burnt out health class teachers. And unfortunately, much of the information that we get from these “experts” is laced with shame. In this blog, we’d like to reintroduce you to our gorgeous friend, masturbation, with a body-positive and research-based outlook. Later, we’ll touch on a couple of trending topics related to male masturbation, including the NoFap movement and semen retention.
In the 1990s, marine biologists finally broke through observer bias and societal hush-hush, and came out about what’s really going on under the sea. From little Nemo the clownfish to Free Willy the orca, several species have been observed flipping genders and flopping around with the same sex. These “sea queer-tures” are the real ones making waves with copulation, mutual masturbation, gang banging, courtship, and cuddle time. Things really are better and wetter under the sea.
These are our top 3 favorite sea queer-tures that can all be found in the Coral Triangle – where we run our sailing trips.
Kevin Mayfield is a travel agent who advises his clients on ideal travel experiences, and of course he recommends Everything To Sea for those seeking naked travel. In fact, Kevin himself is a proud nudist and probably sells trips while in the buff at his laptop! You can reach him at Kevin(at)mwktravelservices(dot)com for planning your upcoming trip.
