Blogging Nude and History

The above image is me, blogging outside and, of course, bare. Not only am I bare with pride but I likewise blog bare with pride! This photograph was taken by my husband, Aaron, at a local park that we are able to walk to in October, 2013.

As I enjoy blogging about all the many pleasures of trying to live life being as bare or as naked as possible, it is only fitting that I blog that way also. To do otherwise I'd lose most of my credibility as both a writer, blogger not to mention my reputation as one who promotes nude living.

I've always derived pleasure in writing. Not just in blogging but in composing short stories, brief biographies and other genres as well as correspondence (emails). For me, writing offers an outlet for the stresses that we all endure simply as a part of our daily existence in an ever increasing world that offers fast-paced living, trials and tribulations and chronic problems that demand immediate attention. Often, it seems, nothing is simple anymore.

The ability to be completely nude while I'm writing adds the dimension of relaxation to whatever it is that I'm working on. Just knowing that I can be clothes-free and creative lightens the task-at-hand and affords me the peace-of-mind to think clearly and removes the burden of being prisoner to unwanted and constraining clothing.

Nudity is always been an inspiration for me, especially when I'm blogging. It helps to set the mood: if I'm naked, then I'm good. Clothes-free, I can concentrate and begin to "think nude" (although to my husband and others who know me I always "think nude..")! I guess there's no denying that I was definitely "born this way!"

I first began blogging in 2008. Back then, I was a regular contributor to a blog created by another same gender loving naturist/nudist who lived in the MidWest region of the USA. Actually, by the time that he closed his site in the winter of 2009, I was the author of a standard feature on his blog. 

After being involved for almost two full years with someone else's blog, I felt the experience had prepared me for to create and maintain a blog on my own. In January, 2010, I began my first independent blog here on named DQN in Northern Virginia. The "DQN" were the initials for my author name: Deaf Queer Nude. I continued with this site from January, 2010 until my last post in January, 2015. Needless to mention, it featured articles and stories relating to the gay nudist community.  

By November, 2012, I was beginning to suffer some boredom with the focus of DQN in Northern Virginia and opted for a change-of-pace with a new blog, A Guy Without Boxers, on I authored both sites simultaneously with a different format and direction for the site. It still featured a same gender loving naturist/nudist focus but was more inclusive of all aspects of nude living and gay and/or bisexual identities. I continued the site until August of this year when an anonymous complaint to concerning "content" led to my being blocked from After repeated but unanswered requests to WordPress over what constituted "content," I decided to allow that blogsite to expire. I have no confidence in or their site management staff, who clearly have nothing better to do than arbitrarily ignore any service requests.

I returned to blogging here at Guys Without Boxers was born on August 19, 2015. After being away from the community, it feels good to be back.
