[One of my new gay (online) friends asked me where he can post nude photos of himself so that only I and his other gay friends can view them. Here is my lengthy reply. ]
One thing you may not know is that: IT ONLY MATTERS WHERE YOUR
NUDE PICS ARE HOSTED. Japan does not block outside sites (at least most ISP companies in Japan do not). Your blog is hosted on Blogger so the photos were not kept in Japan but were stored on Google's own web servers in the U.S.
It is not a crime to post naked photos of yourself that do violate international legal standards when the photos are not physically stored on Japanese host web servers.
BLOG Privacy versus SITE Privacy
Your 'Out There' blog was not private at all; however, it was also not really possible to find it without seeing the URL in some profile of yours.
Blogger does not password protect blogs but you can make them for 'members only'.
However, you can make it completely private and only allow specific people to view it by sending them an invitation by email.
There may be other blog sites such as LiveJournal, Wordpress and Typepad (or others) where you can set up a password protection for members only.
There are plenty of gay sites where a viewer would first have to become a
member (usually free) before he can actually see your profile or any pics on it. I have shown some examples of such sites below: such as Dudesnude or Manjam or GayWatch or Gay.com EMAIL: One thing that I do is to have completely SEPARATE email accounts for my married, straight father / professor self, and another completely set of email accounts for my 'gay' self.
I think you're mixing up the two of them - which is perfectly for today's young people. We, who are older and part of an established institution, would not be so happy to have our 'gay' identities shown to everyone.
So I suggest you to make a 'gay/bisexual-only' email account and to use it solely when sending email and logging on to gay sites.
Also, there is a benefit of using email which is already part of a securely encrypted mail server: NOTE* the URL for a site: https://
Google email uses such a system. The 'extra' s after the http indicates that a site is securely encrypted.
My Blogger blogs (Google):
I can also make you a contributor (member) of one of my blogs so that you can upload photos or write message/texts.
It will probably be best if you used a different email address that the one you
are using for your work, family, and 'straight' friends.
Tell me what email address is. It's probably not good to use the one we are communicating with now but it displays your full name.
0) Of course, you can post naked photos of yourself on JustUsBoys.com, but (as far as I can see) 'free' members cannot limit who can actually view them. Click the link to see my profile on JUB:
In fact, most members (free or paid) may not know that they can have a blog, a profile, and a gallery of up to about 200 photos (at least - it may be larger now), belong to or create groups. Click the JUB link above to see my profile, blog and gallery.
1) There are quite a few places where you can upload nude photos.
Probably the best place is Flickr http://www.flickr.com
It is easy to use and you can set the privacy for your photos - at four different levels for EACH photo: public (anyone can see), friends only, family one, friends and family, and completely private.
You have to create a Yahoo account. Formerly, you could only upload 200
photos, but I believe that restriction has now been lifted. You designate in Flickr WHO can view each (or a batch) of photos. So you can naked photos of yourself and allow only friends or family (meaning a close set of acquaintances). That's a lot of naked pics.
I can send you an invitation to see some of my naked photos on Flickr: It will come from one of my several Yahoo accounts: hardtwoholed
Here is my Flickr account:
YOU CANNOT see much of anything until you sign up for Flickr (and Yahoo), and also change your SETTINGS so that you can look at sexual content.
Here is another Flickr account:
(There are no naked ones of me in there that are currently visible UNLESS
you are my friend in Flickr. ) So the account is considered 'safe' by Flickr (owned by Yahoo). If your post a nude photo of yourself publicly, then Flickr will warn you and also will make your account labeled as 'unsafe.' Unsafe accounts cannot be viewed by just anyone - so that also helps protect your identity.
Actually, I have at least 5 Flickr accounts since I can only save 200 photos (at least it was that was for a long, long time). I sometimes need more for other types of photos.
2) Goggle also has a similar site: Picasa (Google
Photos for saving and sharing photos).
The photos you uploaded into your 'Out here' blog were uploaded also into a folder in the same Blogger account - but since you may have deleted it completely they might not be there anymore.
You can make each folder public or private. You can send invitations to people (like me) who will be able to view you private pics (but no one else can).
3). One site I enjoy is Tribe.net
It's not for just gay people - but there are all kinds of people from countries all over - but there are also a lot of men who are gay. In Tribe, you can create your own profile and add photos, a blog, and other stuff (pretty simple); you can
also join (or create) your own tribe group - where members can share photos and have discussions privately. Only people you admit as 'friends' will be able to see your private photos (or the photos in a private group). There are many tribes that are related to sexual interests but NOT only those kind. Here is one tribe that started on publicly openTribe.net:
I can also send you an invitation to join Tribe.net (after I know what email address of yours I should use to invite you.) Several
Tribe are private and only join them and see their content by invitation from a current member.
You can see my Tribe.net profile here (but you can cannot see my own 'private' naked photos - until I make you my 'friend' on Tribe.
4) Inside some sites, you can upload some private photos and then only your 'friends' can view them.
There are both gay and non-sexual sites .. such as
A. Webjam.com - You are already a member of Webjam, and also one of my Webjam friends. NOTE: My account and sites on Webjam.com have now been deleted.
Now it's possible to upload photos that can only be seen by the specific people you allow. However, at this point, I do not trust Facebook to keep its word about this policy.
So far, I have not uploaded any naked photos of myself in Facebook.
But I really enjoy using it to stay in touch.
(of course, I also have another Facebook account for my 'real self' - the married college professor father)
Here is a Facebook page for Guys Into CMNM (clothed male naked male):
You can only see if you are currently logged in to Facebook.
D. There are a few other gay sites and also quite a few iPhone applications where you can create a profile and have public and private pictures.
You can see all my PUBLIC photos but not the ones I have made 'private.' There is a password that is needed in order to view
those. There is a limit (about 25 I think) to the total number of photos you can upload on your DN (dudesnude) profile.You can choose whether or not to allow this profile to be published or not, and which photos will be private or public. There are ten of thousands of members of Dudesnude.com from all over the world. So it's popular with the gay population.
Manjam is another similar site:
(You can't see all the photos until you log in).
Here are a few iPhone Apps where you can post a profile and include
(optional) nude photos of yourself:
Dudenude (It is not an iPhone app but you can view the site on your iPhone browser, as well as Adam4Adam and Manhunt above.)
OK.. that was MUCH more information that you probably needed or wanted to know.
Let me know your other (or bisexual/gay) 'email' address, then I can send
you some invitations to view my hidden sites or photos.
