    Does anyone else think it's wrong to post revealing pics of yourself if you're in a "monogamous relationship"? Not only are you teasing guys who would hope to be able to date you, but why would you publicly post revealing pictures of yourself on a profile site that has all the intentions of dating? I've seen so many guys who do this on this site and other sites...

    I wouldn't consider RealJock just a dating site. There is a whole section of guys in here who are in fact real jocks. And in regards to the pics, too bad you don't know anything about them and their relationships or you could have passed judgement on them.

    Personally, I do it because at (soon to be) 55, I think I look pretty damn good, considering what I've been through in my life! icon_wink.gif

    Shawnathan saidI don't really understand it either, because I am not that way, but there are lots of things I don't understand, so I just need to accept that it's their life, their choice, and it really doesn't impact me.



    You really should be more judgemental. It´s the american way #MaggieGallagher #GeorgeRekers

    well you should at least pretend to have moral certainties that you don´t live up to so that you can try to force them on others

    i find it more disappointing when guys insist if you're on a site like this you're only here to date or have sex, and lord forbid if a guy is proud of his body and wants to show it off.

    This site is an exercise and fitness community. Where else does one post pics of progress? And why can't a married guy look sexy? On the straight sites guys and girls pose in skimpy little bikinis. What's your problem? Let's see, spend years at the gym, super healthy lifestyle, and post of pic of one's progress, but cover yourself up?

    Yeah, cover it up.

    I think the first thing is that RealJock is not really a "dating site" per se. Granted, it can certainly be a venue for meeting guys to date, but that is not the cornerstone of the site --- which is actually one of the things I really find appealing about RJ. I'm not really aware of another quality site like RealJock, geared toward gay guys, with a slant on health & fitness & gay life, on which you can be as creative as you want with your profile posting a variety of picture, music, videos, etc. Kudos to the owners of RealJock for achieving something like this --- making it free of charge -- and keeping it clear of the sex ads and graphic public photos that litter other gay sites.

    As for the guys in monogamous relationships posting half-naked pics, I think that would only be a problem if they are in a "monogamous relationship", but the profile says "single"

    I really don´t get it..... Why shouldn´t I post pictures of my half naked self. icon_question.gif
    It´s just for fun and to be able to get ffedback on what one can/should enhance about the body and fitness tips in general.... I don´t think rj is a dating site, at least nobody asked me while I was single....;-)))

    And my bf knows of the profile and sees me naked lots of times so he doesn´t really mind other people seeing me half nekkid...;-.))

    This. Can it be thought of as a tease? Ya, I can see that, but 95% of the photos on here of me are before I met my dude and we are really comfortable with each other. He trusts me, I trust him and we are very open and honest. I am not here to find the next fuck, I'm here to see what new gay drama people can create ie: this post.

    The strength of my relationship isn't based off of what gay site I am on, it's about the bond I have forged with my man through many trials and even more to come.

    Half naked pics aren't bad. The dong hanging out is another story. It's the same as someone going swimming in public...except we're talking about pictures.

    THIS!


    ...oh wait (supposed to be judgmental)

    Yeah, what is this crap with monogamous couples on RJ? Monogamous couples should not be on this site!

    It means they're LYING. *sobs* Get rid of them! Ban them ALL!

    They're disgusting! They give monogamous couples a bad name!

    (how'm I doing so far lostboy?)

    We're going to go outside and pour gasoline on ourselves and light a match in protest!

    It's gay people, I tell you, immoral awful sinners!!

    ...ok I need a coffee now...

    I am in a solid monogamous relationship, so out of respect for my s.o. I took away the revealing photos. I did leave one showing my legs, and another one in a Speedo showing my chest and abs. Gosh oh Gee - - - I sure hope those are okay around here............I sure wouldn't want to lead any young guys astray..............hahahahahahaha!

    I was born this way ( naked ) so I don't equate naked with sin. I am surprised how many gay guys have the mentally of uptight ,white, american church ladies.

    I can understand, I personally wouldn't ever post revealing photos of myself if I was in a committed relationship with someone else.

    On the other hand, there's also a difference between posting a picture just for the sex effect, and then there's posting a picture of your legs or something to show your progress, which I don't see the big deal even if you are in a monogamous relationship.

    Really? There are monogamous gay couples here who show half naked pix of themselves on the site? **GASP**icon_eek.gificon_surprised.gif

    The sheer thought of such a thing has me gagging. Not an easy thing to do icon_twisted.gif

    Seriously, dude, it's a site like any other and the people who decide to join it are free to do as they like (within reason to site rules) on here so if they wanna use it as a hook up, dating or whatever site then that's their business. The main function of this site is to promote health and fitness within the gay community. Dating or hooking up is an added bonus should the person in question choose to use the site as such. Honestly, some people just like to show off what they've worked hard to get and I don't see anything wrong with that. It also serves as a way to encourage others to obtain the same thing.

    If a gay couple is on here and is half-naked showing off the goods then that is really their business. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't do it if they thought their significant other(s) had a problem with it. I say enjoy the view and go about YOUR business. Do what you are here to do and don't worry about something you don't have control over.

    I think it's wrong to post pix like that when ur dating someone. Respect them. If you need to show off ur body to other people on a website maybe you should re-evaluate ur relationship and whether you mature enough to be in one

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThe whole need for validation from strangers on the internet is of no importance whatsoever at the expense of bothering the person I'm dating.

    Oh honey, the internet is the last place I go for validation, especially this site with its quick wits and hot abs. I'm just here to ogle the monogamous exhibitionists.

    Who do you define "half naked?" Shirtless? Wearing a swimsuit of some kind? If it's pictures of your dick, then I couldn't call that half-naked.
