    On this site there is a fairly large contingent of participants who reveal their dicks; a subset whose pics show their full naked bodies; those who show their faces are a much smaller yet subset. The very hottest pics here are undoubtedly those from members who include their faces. But most of us can't bring ourselves to do so no matter how exhibitionist we are about our dicks. There are two obvious factors that prevent people from posting face pics: fear of repercussions in employment or public exposure, and a different feeling about privacy about their faces than their dicks.

    The thing we show to the world every day at the grocery store and the bank, that all our acquaintances instantly recognize as ourselves--versus the thing that almost no one gets to see but that we privately play with for hours. LPSG is like a bizarro world where dick modesty is stupid but facial modesty the rule. Imagine a world where men wore veils and let their cocks hang out in public!

    So I thank those who share their faces here, and offer a word of explanation as one who does not. I don't fear losing a job or a relationship over that level of exhibitionism, and partner would be cool with it. But it just puts one's feelings on the line in a way that seems creepy to me. If someone dislikes my dick or my body, tastes vary, no problem. But having one's face out there to be liked or disliked seems much more like putting oneself out there.

    Would be very interested in the reasons people choose to show their faces or not, especially how those of you who reveal your faces decided to do so.

    I took out all my face and partial face pics because I was recognized several times. Embarrassing.

    Don't be shy it's a fun story. I was seen chasing her on my rollerblades through a lovely University. I have to stay at least 50' away from her now.
    Most of my face pics have sunglasses... I like Greta Garbo want to be left alone!

    Some people have seen my face. But I feel weird about putting my face in my gallery. It is very unlikely that I'd be recognized, but I still wouldn't want it to happen. So it isn't that I don't want my face to be shown.

    No, it's Pilot Mountain, which has the most amazing trail around the base of that rock outcropping you see. Rocky cliffs beside you straight up for 50-100 feet, raptors circling overhead:

    Yeah, I know where that is, I see it every time I go up 77 into Virginia. It is lovely. I do a lot of camping in Grayson Highlands Park and trout fish all over the mountains. I'll be the guy out on the stream wearing a veil with my cock hanging out from between my hip waders.

    I'm not worried about anyone saying anything hurtful about my face. I'm just concerned about this sort of thing:

    I have kept my face (and other) pics in my private album so only people I get to know and feel comfortable with have seen me but recently I popped this new one in as my avatar.

    Catch a lot of fish this way? What are they biting?

    I had a face pic up for a bit, but was uncomfortable with not only the additional attention, but also the potentially embarrassing social ramifications.

    OTOH - I'm glad to see Lynn has her face pic up, as she's very pretty.
