PDA? PDS? Puzzled...

No, it's not Personal Digital Assistant I am writing about. Neither Parenteral Drug Association. And neither Project on Defence Alternatives. It's Public Display of Affection, as John Legend would have said. Or in this case Public Display of Sex. Beware! :)



So, we spent a couple of days in Rovinj, a city on the Istria peninsula in Croatia. Rovinj could be just another one of quite a few really beautiful cities along Croatian Mediterranean coast if it weren't for SEX. During the course of years Rovinj has become the unofficial capital of free sex. Straight sex, gay sex you name it. And I mean free sex, hookers just wouldn't stand a chance round there. :)
Anyway, gay areas of nudist beaches are pretty much like everywhere. Nice beach and a huge cruise area in the bushes/woods above the coast. Not a novelty. What puzzles me is the straight part of the beach. I don't know exactly how I'd define it. It's a funny mixture of swinger/exhibitionist type of a beach. All the action there takes place on the vast, open beach. Which is not really something I'd trip over. The part that somehow annoys me are the spectators. The beach has turned into a huge show. There are couples there involved into all sorts of action and a group - as I call them vultures - just lurking around to see what's going on and wanking like mad. So, if you see a group of men (I could bet a decent percentage of them being gay) standing and doing their, you are sure there's something going on there. And it's funny... nothing else ever happens. No physical interaction between action and vultures. Maybe onle between couples.
And spectators just sit on the rocks along the beach, holding their pride in hands and waiting. Ok, sex is supposed to be fun and all, but I really cannot see anything exciting in all that. I mean, HELLO, gay beach looks like a church (at times). LOL
And to add some spice... Tourist boats just pass those nudist beaches, maybe at some 50 metres of distance, full of curious people with cameras and all (and of course with their kids and all) and you can hear the guide explaining what kind of beaches these are.

Comments? Ideas? Points of view. And I will abuse cecilgene phrase again: Discuss.

BTW: smile will come later and instead of all the action going on (which I haven't taken pictures of anyway) here's just one Rovinj picture - it already made it to my desktop.

Oh my god! I didn't know heaven is so near.
Bye ... I'm leaving for Rovinj ...

I just love the atmosphere of complete liberty and freedom. Cleaned of all the rubbish of moral prejudices, artificial borders and brakes and guilty and ... ah! you know! So ... as soon as I'm not hurting anyone, I'm for it. I should leave in the end of sixties: sex, love and rock and roll!!

PS: The pic is lovely!!

Yeah right, heaven :)

I am also for "do what you like as long is doesn't hurt anyone else", but making a (bad) theatre experience out of it is not really my cup of coffee.

PS: Thanks! I think it came out fine. :)

Rovinj is the most beautiful town in Croatia (Zagreb is the city, of course :P), and I think there is nothing bad in liberty. You are free to chose.
Some of my best and nearest friends are from Rovinj and Porec and its amazing how they and also there parents think. They change me a lot on good side, I think.

Ok, it's a town. :) It really is beautiful, but some other places are higher in my book (Rab, Bol, Korcula...).
And I wasn't questioning the liberty, I have "value" in mind.

Interesting that there is such a place, but I feel like it sort of cheapens sex quite a bit. I know everyones idea of sex is unique, but when it's all out there and casual, it just loses its appeal.

Beautiful picture!

That's exactly how I feel about it. There's not thrill if all is just laid on on a plate... or rocks for that matter.

I like that picture, too! :) Thanks, Joe!

That is a beautiful photo.

I'm not really down with the sort of beach scene you described. Outdoor sex can be exciting but it's the danger of getting caught that makes it so. A bunch of people standing watching is just, just, I don't know. Bizarre? Tacky? As someone already said, cheap.

I am on this with you. Outdoor sex is about seduction and "hunt" and all. A discount shop like that kills most of the thrill. At least for me.

Cheap, yes.

Oh... and I am preparing another "multiple edition" of me. Yes, such a comment whore I am. But Take 18 is supposed to be done, right? :)

Oh right, we're talking about between strangers. I couldn't do that. Never on a first date. :) I doubt I'd be able to perform with an audience.

Another edition? You're spoiling us!

No matter how liberal I might seem (to me), I also prefer fun without audience. :) I see it as a rather intimate thing.

Yes... the 18th edition is ready!

I think that this is some kind of discrimination. Sex is very different, and everyone find something what they like. It isnt good when you say that someone choice is cheap. Its the same when str8 say: str8 sex and behavior is better than LGBTIQ. :P

I just think that after so much repression we've been through, Spain is quiet a liberal place

Don't get me wrong..... I wasn't preaching about th sins and all that's going on there, I was just slighty disappointed about the depreciation of sex....

Nope, my point is precisely the contrary: why making a big fuss of it? The more they make it the less important it'll be, and this will end... mmmm I hope I explained myself better now

Ah, do you still have decency laws?
There's something going on in Spain. Due to our constitution, all ancient decency laws were abolished. However, some conservative city halls tried to put some back, but the personal right is over the council's rights - So you can legally go naked on the streets, have sex anywhere (except in front of children or aggressively) and dress the way you want.

If I were a woman, I wouldn't have sex on the beach because I wouldn't want to get sand in my twat.
paterson_si

Oh... When I was passing the beach, there was a couple in their 50's, just lying there and a man inserted a finger in his wife's twat and he was just messing around a bit, totally not really interested. What a sight. :)

And you are terrible! :)
