Once again, it is the end of yet another month, October, 2017. For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, it is the first full month of our Autumn season. The weather is fast becoming cooler outside and the leaves of the trees are beginning to change their colors. From now on, they will die and the trees will once more become barren until our next Spring season arrives.
For those of us who write and publish nudecentric blogs, our task now enters into a challenging phase. What to write about now that it’s too cold to be bare outside?
Some may become frustrated with the task of writing about being clothes-free outside when it’s really too cold to even entertain the very thought of venturing outdoors. However, nudity is not limited to merely being bare outside – living without clothes isn’t a “fair weather” restriction. There are any number of topics and scenarios that concern us and interest us. I also have a number of readers who live in the Southern Hemisphere, so while it’s winter here, it’s the summer there.
My good friend, nude brother and blogging buddy, Rob, author of the site, Real Time, this month launched another site, Masculine Perspectives. Click on the title to view. This new blog offers his thoughts and opinions on issues concerning men regardless of their sexuality and racial identity. I highly recommend it to all men who seek and honest perspective on a variety of topics as to what it means to be a man living in the 21st Century. This site is Not Suitable For Work (NSFW) but it is indeed on point and very informative. Please take a look at both of his sites and follow them.
Young Naturists of America (YNA), the young adult organization of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) announced this month that they are disbanding by the end of the current calendar year. My understanding from the limited information that I have read is that there was a serious lack of support from the older, or perhaps I should use established, naturist/nudist organizations and the persistent yet unfounded rumor that the YNA was a profit-driven entity. In the seven years of their existence, they did achieve some positive changes within the mainstream naturist/nudist communities (such as ending discrimination against transgender naturists, the end of the ban on nipple and other anatomical jewelry, and the end of gender ratios at nude events, destinations, etc.).
I want to go on record here, at ReNude Pride, in applauding YNA for the changes that they spearheaded and for their efforts in promoting positive images of our naturist/nudist living within the United States. I commend their accomplishments and wish them all my best.
To everyone reading here who celebrates the occasion, Happy Halloween!
