A Guy Without Boxers was the name of my first blog here on wordpress. The reason for that title is that a man without any underwear (boxers, briefs, bikinis, jock-strap, whatever) was…well, naked, nude, clothes-free. He was completely b-a-r-e. Devoid of any type of covering over his body. The exact type of man that I enjoy being. That should be no surprise to anyone reading here on a regular or even an irregular basis.
This month, December, 2017, is my twelfth consecutive month writing this, my second wordpress blog, ReNude Pride. As I close out my first year of publishing this new site, I thought it a good time to share what I really appreciate about nudity. At the same time, I encourage all of you who are reading or visiting here to use the “comments” box below and write your own thoughts on what you enjoy about being naked.
Nudity affords me transparency. It allows others to see the “real” me without the contrived image of fashion or other styles of clothing. It’s just me inside my own skin.
Nudity affords me honesty. I am not able to broadcast any perceived status by wearing the current clothing and other affectations of wealth. In my own skin, I am the equal of all of my peers who stand around me in theirs. Honesty allows others to see the “real” me, with all my physical imperfections and shortcomings.
Nudity affords me freedom. When I am bare, I am no longer restricted within the confines of clothing or covering. I can move about and remain unconcerned over artificial limitations or impediments. This freedom also encompasses self-determination. I know longer allow others to make decisions over what I should or should not wear. I am me and I reject all body restrictions placed on me by others.
Nudity affords me comfort. I can relax and enjoy being within my own skin and nothing else. Even with the frigid winter outside, in my home, I can unwind and take solace in just being me. In the summer heat, I am cool with nothing around me but the air on my skin.
Nudity affords me pride. I am proud of my body and all of its deficiencies, flaws and scars. I am confident in my nakedness and feel no need to conceal or hide it. I am proud of the man that I am; Deaf, same gender loving (gay) and a bare practitioner (naturist/nudist). I feel no need to be ashamed of any aspect of myself. I accept both myself and my physical body.
Nudity affords me happiness. I am blissfully at peace with myself, my body and the world when I am bare. As I strip off my clothing, I feel as though I am shedding a worldly care or concern with each item of clothing that I remove. Once I am finally naked, I feel completely care-free. When I am at last bare and surrounded by my nude family and friends, all seems “right” with the world and I am at peace.
