 This 1942 photo of U.S. servicemen on a beach in the New Hebrides Islands was one of the 
all-time viewer favorites on my old tumblr blog.  The comfortable ease these men are showing is a hallmark of a lost era of acceptance of shared male nudity.  So sad that it has become rare.

  1. C'est vrai qu'il y a encore très peu de lieux où les hommes osent se promener nu entre eux. Je le fais au sauna près de chez moi, mais je ne connais pas d'autre endroits où cela serait considéré comme normal...

    It is true that there are still very few places where men dare to walk naked among themselves. I do this at the sauna near my house, but I don't know of any other places where it would be considered normal

    1. You are correct, Albert, when you say such places are rare. They do exist, however. Here on my home island of Hawaii we have a nude beach which is mixed gender, but predominantly male on Sundays when a men's drumming circle is held there.

    2. There is a nude beach not too far from me. One part is mixed gender and another part is predominantly male. This means that it is not as ‘cruisy’ as some beaches I have visited, and it is possible to relax in the company of other nude men without “Sex Gets in the Way”.

  2. I can see why this photo was so popular. I also see two chubbs who may have slimmed down due to military service, but even military training can't supress that trademark junk-in-the-trunk.

    1. LOL, yes, two of them do seem to have somewhat expansive posteriors.

  3. Your description that accompanies this photograph is absolutely spot on with the nostalgia of what's been lost in male camaraderie.
