    Why have a tan line if you're tanning in private? As mentioned, protect your junk, either with a cloth or SPF lotion, but otherwise, what's the purpose of an artificial tan line, when tanning alone?

    I find them sexy. It´s not rational. UNless they are really really strong, in which case they are less hot

    Wait, let me amend my reply above. My late partner thought a Speedo tan line was hot. Until that time I had no tan line, using nude beaches, never wearing a swim suit at all. I don't understand it myself, but that's what turned him on.

    So I bought a tanning membership, and wore 2 Speedos at once in the booth, to make sure no light penetrated to my skin under them. Before long I had a perfect Speedo tan line.

    There are things I prefer, and competing things I'm willing to accommodate to please my partner. I usually defer to my partner, unless it seriously conflicts with my own wishes. A tan line isn't that important to me, but pleasing my partner is very important. If it means a lot to him, then it means a lot to me.

    Now I'm back to no tan lines, visiting our legal nude beach here. And once again I don't own a swim suit. My present partner has no complaints.

    It really depends on the person I think. I like when guys are all tan, but I think I like it more when they have a white butt lol.

    Also is tanning at a tanning bed like legit? I usually natural tan when im at the beach in california or something, but i need to try and stay tanner during the winters. so is tanning at a tanning bed worth it?


    sorry to take your thread icon_wink.gif just a quick little question

    I just lie outside by the pool after swimming laps - and get all the sun I need (here in AZ) in just an hour or so. The tan lines are hot - - - - just moisturize!

    minimal tan.....skin cancer and dried out skin over the long term is not sexy.

    a little sun each day is good for you...vitamin D...
    but tanning for long periods is not. balance...

    I can't see your face, but I'm assuming from your hair and eye color, you are fair-skinned. Tanning has a cummulative effect on sensitive areas, and you might want to consider covering up to prevent any sort of irritation later on.

    And yes. Tan lines are generally sexy.

    First, tanning at your gym? Sounds like a conflict of interest -- you're working out to be healthy, and yet exposing yourself to UV radiation.

    That said, this past summer I did lay out at the beach a few times (see my tan lines in my profile pics). And I was recently complimented on my tan lines -- here it is January, and I didn't think i even had them any more! W00T.

    As for naked versus tan lines, I think both can look good, but as suggested above, if you're exposing areas of your body that haven't seen sun before you'd better to use a high SPF to be safe. Burning your ass or crotch is NOT fun. (So I'm told.) If I were you, I'd just go the Speedo route.

    Couldn't care less one way or the other. It is the ass that counts not the lines around it!

    It's your call. I personally think it's kinda cute in a tacky way when a built guy has a white ass LOL

    I tan regularly totally in the nude. The reason I started was because my ass was so white compared to the rest of my body. I didn't think it looked cute one bit. I stopped tanning for a while and looked back at pics of me when I was tanning... I def preferred when I was tan all over so I went back to it. I'm not sure how long I'll continue to tan but for now I see no reason to stop.

    animanimus saidya get the oddest tan lines in florida. try biking here in on a summer morning and then see what you look like when you swim laps later at the gym pool. total nerd.

    have you considered a farmer's tan? hot!

    Ewwww hahaha farmer's tans are not cute! I've known a lot of Marines and they always have farmer's tans... Sorry bud, not cute.
