Photo-Blog: Bottoms-Up: April, 2016

Today is the end of April, 2016, and now time for another collection of the bountiful ASSets of masculine beauty that can only be discovered when one frequents the haunts that encourage men to go bare with pride!

These two Bottoms-Up! dudes (above) have obviously found something they would prefer to grab and to hold onto. Can any of us blame them? 

This dude is adept at using mirrors to enhance the wonderful delights of his own Bottoms-Up! assets!

One of the many advantages of going bare early in the Spring/Summer season is that your Bottoms-Up! attributes haven't yet had the opportunity to develop those tell-tale tanlines! Of course, its always more fun to be socially nude with other bare men! 

However, if you absolutely must be by yourself, it's always best to be solo while bare!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Approaching Times of Nudity Ahead!

A sign that is welcoming to us all: Nude Bathers Ahead! As we approach a notice such as this one, our burdens suddenly become lighter as we race forward stripping off all of our unwanted clothes. At last, we are finally free to be as bare as we like! 

No matter where we are, beach, park, forest, or our own backyard, we can finally reap the rewards of being completely clothes-free and basking in the liberation of our nudity!

We know that at last, we're able to afix that grin on our chin and enjoy ourselves (and others) as we relax outdoors and experience living naturally. No cumbersome clothes are necessary!

No pretensions are needed as we satisfy our desire to see and to be seen by all of our brethren for exactly who and what we truly are: bare as the day we were born!

And, as such, we can now fully enjoy any past-time that our heart desires, basking in the feel of the sun all over our exposed bodies!

So hang in there just a little bit longer, my nude friends! The days of freedom, for all of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere , are almost here! We only have to be patient just a little while longer! 

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

April Showers: Bare

April is traditionally the month for those gentle showers of rain to fall. This is nature's way of providing nourishment for the leaves that are beginning to re-appear on the trees and for all of the flowers that are blooming after a barren winter.

These warm showers are also an opportunity for us to take advantage of the gentle precipitation and to once again experience the delight of being bare while the gentle drops fall on and all around us. 

Don't delay and take full responsibility for stripping off your soggy clothes and feel the warmth of April showers cascading of your bare body! 

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Happy Earth Day, 2016!

Happy Earth Day, 2016!

The best way to observe Earth Day is to be as close to united with Earth as possible. This means being totally bare, clothes-free, nude. In doing so, we are eliminating the residues from detergents and cleaning agents that we use in cleaning our clothes and garments. A small step, true. But if enough of us go bare on Earth Day, think of all the pollutants we are sparing our planet.  

April 22, each year, marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. In that year, the "counterculture" of the 1960s was beginning to decline. In the developed and developing world, drivers were guzzling leaded gas by innumerable gallons, industries belched out smoke and sludge with no consequences and there was little, if any, concern for the environment. 

Earth Day 1970, gave a voice to a growing consciousness for natural stewardship and environmental responsibility. Our resources, including the air that we breathe and the water that we drink, were daily being polluted and consumed at a rate that would soon make the planet unable to sustain life. 

It is only natural that the naturist/nudist community join forces with all efforts to preserve, conserve and act responsibly for all initiatives to maintain and reclaim a world that is habitable and productive. All of us need to be accountable in our goal of leaving this planet in a far better state than than what it was in the past.  

We should all do our small part in maintaining a planet that allows us to reap the many healthy benefits of outdoor bare pleasures. If each one of us takes the time to clean up our own trash and encourage others to do the same, we help keep our earth clean and reduce the amount of garbage that is dumped into landfills each year. Let's work together and make every day an Earth Day!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Mixed Couples: Bare and Not

The above photograph illustrates my concept/idea of a mixed couple. The dude on the left is wrapped in a towel, the one on the right (taking a selfie) is completely nude. One guy who is very modest and uncomfortable with being seen bare coupled with another guy who is proud to be bare and is oblivious to anyone who disagrees with him. I've been in mixed relationships before and every time it ended, I promised myself: never again! Fortunately, Aaron, my husband, and I both feel the same way about clothes: who needs them? 

I have been in several medium-to-long-term relationships (prior to meeting Aaron in 2009) with textile (clothes-wearing) partners. I know from experience that with one man being a confirmed bare (nude) and the other preferring clothing, the relationships can become volatile, and usually do. At least, that has been my experience.

The first sign of a problem normally occurs when the comment is made: Do you always have to be naked? The remark is often made as an observation and generally said in passing. Over time, it becomes increasingly frequent and a little more demanding each time. Finally, in frustration and anger, it becomes: Must you be naked all the time? Eventually, it gets to the point that it is no longer a question and is simply a command: Put some clothes on!

And the only chance of conflict isn't just limited to the home environment. Where to spend leisure time together can and does present challenges. Should we visit a clothing-optional beach or one that is strictly swimsuit only? The same holds true for pools, resort locations, parks, etc.

If a clothing-optional destination is agreed upon, then another issue arises. The textile (clothed) partner invariably begins with the accusation: You only want to meet/talk to him because you want a better look at what his junk/genitalia/package is like up close! Or if not that, the usual accusation of noticing/staring at others becomes the source of additional conflict.

Let's face it, when in a relationship and one man is a bare enthusiast and the other is not, there exists unlimited reasons for jealousy and hurt for even glancing at another bare man. This type of distrust often destroys the partnership regardless if the accusation is true or false.

The issue of friends somehow enters into the picture of a mixed (naked versus clothed) couple. The nudist wants to hang out with his bare buddies. The clothing oriented one wants to hang out with his textile crowd. This often leaves very little time for the couple to be with friends and still be a couple. 

Then when the two find time to be socially active together, the conflict then becomes, do we invite his nude friends or do we invite his clothes-wearing friends. Inevitably, the two separate sets of friends almost never get-along together. The textile group feels the bare group is too licentious and, well, naked. The bare crew feels that the clothing group gawks and rudely stares at them. There simply is no comfortable mixing of the two, despite the fact that they're all same gender loving men. 

Another issue surrounds extended leisure periods, known as nakations within the bare community and simply vacations otherwise. Do we plan a destination that embraces nudity or do we follow the conventional route and visit someplace that requires clothing on a full-time basis? The clothing-oriented partner usually insists on the vacation option and the naturist/nudist, already stressed from having to conform to clothing standards for both work and everyday life, insists on, at the very least, a clothing-optional destination for the nakation option. The longer the relationship, the chance of a compromise appears unlikely. 

I know about this from my own life-experience and from friends who have been in the same situation. No matter how much the two partners profess their love, the clothing issue somehow manages to divide the two apart. The resentment builds and eventually erodes the ability to even try to reach common ground.   

True love is supposed to overcome all obstacles, at least, that's what I was always taught. However, I believe that the clothes issue does become an insurmountable hurdle in a relationship when it is complicated by a host of other problems that every couple, bare or textile, has to face. In dealing with life, the fewer the conflicts, the better the chance of survival.

In my past relationships (before Aaron), in retrospect, the clothing conflict, when accompanied by all the other items we faced as a couple, just proved to overwhelm us. We became too entrenched in our separate lives (bare versus clothed) that we were unable to find a "happy medium" ground. 

If anyone reading this has a similar experience, regardless of the outcome, please comment below and share!

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Springtime Hike

During the early Spring, there's no better way to view the re-birth of nature and the sprouting foliage than to take a bare hike in the woods. Whether alone or with friends, a nude hike is both exhilarating and inspirational. The feel of the warm, fresh air wrapping around bare skin and the sensation of having your penis and testicles swaying between your legs is enough to make a man glad to be alive and to truly know that a new season has arrived.

Walking, or hiking, through a natural preserve completely free from all the constraints of clothing is in and of itself a just reward for surviving the barren and harsh winter weather. The fact that we're now doing it and seeing the wonders of nature unfold before us is a bonus treat. Funny that as Winter fades into Spring, we humans begin to take our clothes off as Mother Nature begins to put her clothing ( foliage) back on!

A simple pleasure such as pausing for a few moments and meditating on the beauty that surrounds us as the earth renews itself is awesome. Once again, nature returns to life and we are able to do likewise in our own skin with nothing between us and the surrounding natural growth. Nature is best experienced when we are at our best: nude. 

I can think of nothing more relaxing, rejuvenating or refreshing than a bare hike along a nature trail in the springtime. Renewing our contact with the natural world, especially after a harsh winter, does a world of good for the mind, the soul and the body. The freedom of being alone and clothes-free among the beauty and wonders of the natural world makes one feel alive with joy and amazement. 

Take the time for yourself and get out of your clothes then re-discover the return of life in nature. You'll be amazed at the tranquility you'll find from such a simple act. 

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!

Photo-Blog: Nude Dudes, April, 2016

The very first skinny-dip (swimming naked) of the Spring, 2016,  season.

In the early Spring sunlight, there.s ample opportunity for outdoor nudity without too much damage to the skin from over-exposure to the sun's rays. Its always best to use a sunscreen even if the sunlight isn't too intense. 

The simple act of being totally bare and surrounded by nature is both exhilarating and very liberating! There's no better way to celebrate the month of April than by being completely natural in nature! One of the benefits of early Spring nudity is that it allows our bodies to gradually adjust to the rising outdoor temperatures. 

Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!
