Before You Bare, Cover Up!

Before I’m inundated with comments and complaints from anyone reading this, please allow me to explain the reason for the title. I am absolutely and emphatically not recommending the wearing of a swimsuit or any other type of garment (unless you legally must). What I am encouraging everyone to do is to make sure that you cover yourself completely in sunscreen before you venture outside in the sun. No matter where you live: the Arctic Circle or Asia, Australia or Africa, Europe or North and South America. Protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun, regardless of location, gender or race.

Sitting While Bare

All of us are acutely aware of the niceties of manners and how we’re supposed to act and behave when in “polite society” (whatever that is) or when we’re out and about in public. For men, this means sitting with our legs comfortably close together so that we’re not offering a full view of our crotch (genital area). I guess this was a custom so as not to appear too “suggestive” or offensive to any ladies (women) who happened to be present. As a male bare practitioner (naturist/nudist), I understand this logic.

Same Gender Love: Publicly Kissing

I don’t know how many times I’ve seen opposite gender (heterosexual) loving couples publicly kissing. I’ve seen it in the movies (cinema), theatres, at the beach, in the supermarket, walking down the street, in the park, etc. It has happened to often that I can’t count the number of times or the number of places where it has occurred. Every time I see it, I think to myself: “Sweet. They’re in love.” I’m happy for them and myself, also.

Mother’s Day, USA

This Sunday, May 14, 2017, is Mother’s Day in the USA. As the name suggests, it is the day set aside for all of us to remember our mothers. It is also a time to reflect on the duties and responsibilities of motherhood and to honor all the women who perform those duties and responsibilities endlessly, tirelessly and lovingly. This is their day to be saluted and commended for being themselves.

Let’s Strip and Skinny-Dip

“Truth is, most of us contain a splashing, giggling, squealing child inside us who knows without thinking that bare skin and water go together as wings go with air, roots with earth and the phoenix with the incendiary sun.”   ~ Author Unknown

 The term skinny-dipping, used to describe swimming without any type of swimsuit, was first documented in the English language in 1947. The term is most commonly used in the USA.  Continue reading Let’s Strip and Skinny-Dip

Posing Nude

While I was an undergraduate at university, I posed nude for art classes with the university’s School of Arts, Media and Humanities. It was not a problem for me as Alex, my identical twin brother, and I had for years been allowed to be clothes-free while in the room we shared in my parent’s home. First year students weren’t allowed to be nude models so I posed without clothes from my second year at university through my graduation two years later.

The Nudist Planet Arrives!

Before anyone suffers from a massive coronary, let me explain the title just a little bit further. As much as we bare practitioners (naturists/nudists) would love for the headlines in all the world’s media inform us of that fact, the reality is less dramatic than that. The truth of the matter is that Kenn Campbell-Harris, my nudist brother and fellow blogger (and a man I consider a kindred spirit) has evolved his blog, Gay Black Nudist, to what is now known as Nudist Planet.
