Red, hope this doesn't come off inflammatory(even though your word did come off that way), but I think your response was a little unwarranted especially considering the original question. This isn't about not putting up a photo, he asked why some show their body without a face.
And that's a fair question to which I'll provide my own explanation: my 'private' photos include not necessarilly more risque images, but my face included. And not because my arrogance drives me to paranoia or I'm a closeted coward, but because I live in a small city where the 'gay scene' is very small-town gossip in nature since everyone knows each other. I'm not here to hookup with people around here... I'm here to meet like-minded folks from all around the world.
I'd rather not have the negative people from this area's scene recognize me and assume the wrong thing...
That's all. :)
You want to see my face, just ask.
