July 1, 1961 – August 31, 1997
To be honest, I didn’t watch the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer on the television nor was I a guest for the service in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. I was too busy with my undergraduate pursuits at university to be bothered with such frivolity and had only a passing interest (if even that much) in the doings of the British Royal Family. They had no impact on my bare life nor my educational goals at that time.

Author’s Note: This post usually publishes on the last day of the month. Due to tomorrow being the twentieth anniversary of the tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales, I am posting this today in order to remember the late Princess Diana.
This is the very next-to-the-last day of August, 2017. Summer is almost over – which to me is unbelievable. This means that this is the final Bottom’s-Up! post for the Summer, 2017. The next one will publish on September 30, 2017 – in the Autumn season.
So bare your buttocks and show off your pride! Summer is rapidly disappearing into the past! Before that happens, let the world admire your beautiful buns (buttocks)!

We’re almost to the end of August, the final full month of the Summer, 2017. As for me, I’m left wondering, “where did this season go?” It seems as though we just observed the the beginning of the Summer, and now here it is, entering into the count-down for the last couple of weeks before another season. Autumn, arrives. It doesn’t seem fair that my personal favorite season of the year is the shortest, even though I know that this isn’t the case at all!

One week from today, September 4, is the annual Labor Day holiday here in the U.S. For many meteorologists, this holiday marks the unofficial end of Summer. Many resort hotels and establishment reduce their guest prices as they, too, see this as the end of the major tourist and travel season. However, for those of us who are avid bare practitioners (naturists/nudists), we hold sacred the final day of Summer on September 21. What’s good enough for the calendar is fine for all of us!

As a teenager, I was always fascinated and probably borderline obsessed with the exotic men that I met and/or observed around me. As Alex, my identical twin brother, and I had accepted and acknowledged our same gender attraction since our early teen years, I thought nothing out of the ordinary about this fact. I felt it was simply part of my sexual exploration and self-discovery. One culture that I particularly remember having fantasies about were the Polynesians of the South Pacific Ocean. These included the men from Samoa, Tonga, Hawaii, the Marquesas Islands, the Maori (the indigenous peoples of New Zealand), Tahiti, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Tokelau and other islands. The Polynesians are noted for their seafaring skills as well as their intricate body tattoos.

As a continuation of my feature series of interviews with my fellow clothes-freedom loving bloggers, it is my pleasure to introduce to those of you reading here, Vinnie, the author of two blogs here on WordPress.com. His first blog, Vinnieh, (click title to view) focuses on movie reviews and entertainment news. I started following this blog when I was initially publishing my older blog. He lives in the United Kingdom. His newer blog, begun this past Spring, is named Buns Are All That You Require, which offers his views of life, sexuality and is most definitely not suitable for work and contains adult content. This blog is where he’s posted his nude exploits.

As the author of ReNude Pride, I’m always carefully trolling the internet in order to find interesting and non-sexually explicit photographs to use on this site. I’m not intending to be a prude, but rather, a realist. I don’t want to use any image that someone, somewhere, finds offensive, sexually suggestive or grossly insensitive. It’s a fine line to walk but in the interests of this site, I’m willing to tread cautiously and be as careful as I am able.
