There’s Everything To See With ‘Everything To Sea’
In today’s social and political climate, our relationship with our open sexuality and homo-sensuality has taken a few steps back into the closet. We, as a group, are more censored – just as we were beginning to embrace our openness in the media and even in our own lives. The male nude form has had many transformations from its imagery as celebrated by Ancient Greece, to the middle ages where nudity was paired with morals and sin, to a resurgence with the works of Michelangelo and Da Vinci, to a covering up in Victorian times, to the celebration of the young male form in the early 1900’s. Today the male naked body is often seen as confrontational and political, something difficult to look at – a far cry from Ancient Greece. So what if there was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that put all the social and political restrictions aside and celebrated the male body instead?
Imagine that setting – you hear the waves crashing while your boat glides through Indonesia’s 17,000 islands with other like-minded men celebrating the feeling of freedom that comes with witnessing the beauty that surrounds you. Welcome to Everything to Sea.
Whether you are in a sarong, a speedo or flying free, there’s certainly everything to see. Consider this your mobile Fantasy Island, where sensuality and personal discovery mix with adventure, in a body positive and inclusive “choose your own adventure” setting, whether you are flying solo or with your significant other.
Everything to Sea is the creation of Max & Dave who came to this idea with a team of men who share the same vision and are from locales from all over the world. Naked sailing – the wind at your back, your back in the wind, a journey that is part fantasy, part spiritual retreat, part thrill…where the male form is not covered up, it’s celebrated.
Their trips have become very popular with men from every part of the world – from popular couple bloggers The Nomadic Boys to DNA Magazine to Gay Travel Magazine. This is where you discover, or rediscover your relationship with your body, nature, your sexuality but more importantly yourself.
Shy? The mood is relaxed and polite, just like the native, five man crew who make the voyage a literal dream. Team work and camaraderie are the foundation of the ship, and there is no pressure – you can easily get away with wearing your short shorts or nothing at all, you decide. Meals are taken care of, there’s a number of amenities, even massages and body shaving services are covered as well.
Discovering other types of men is not the only exotic encounters you will have. Flying fish, Komodo dragons, radiant blue kingfishers and flying foxes are your guides through the lush mountains, rolling hills and rock formations that appear out of the sea. Earth, sea and animals are one in this escape from the hustle of everyday life. The only stars you will see are in the sky, by the thousands. Time stands still as you remember how to breathe and take it all in.
Great care has been taken to journey on a traditional “Pinisi” vessel. The Pinisi follows over 1,500 years of tradition in its craftsmanship, and has been designated as an art of “Intangible Cultural Heritage” by UNESCO – and not one nail is used in its construction. Don’t worry, there are modern conveniences on board and there’s even Wifi. This is taking a literal step out of your normal life and into an experience unlike you’ve ever experienced before.
Along with your intimate party of shipmates (20 or less), you are going to spend the day exploring the local lands, fishing, hiking, snorkeling, and learning about the workings of a ship. Year-round temperatures are around the 80’s and as the sun sets and it gets dark, you’ll enjoy recounting your personal journey of the day with your new friends.
This is your next journey, a once in a lifetime opportunity. Completely affordable, you can journey on your own or with a group of your friends and charter the whole ship. Challenge yourself to experience something new. You haven’t really been on a vacation if you haven’t experienced Everything To Sea, Relaxing Sailing for Men.
“How much has to be explored and discarded before reaching the naked flesh of feeling.”
– Claude Debussy
