Some may wonder: why is a blog that celebrates same gender loving male (gay) social nudity seriously feature a posting discussing “dressing for success?” Shouldn’t the focus be on stripping for fun and relaxation? My response to those thoughts is that no, I’m not high on any mind-altering substance and that there are countless articles on removing clothing and enjoying life bare but very few on how we bare practitioners (naturists/nudists) don we now our gay apparel (to adopt a more festive seasonal phrase) after our clothes-freedom experiences.
Of course, there are no standard determining guidelines as to specific ways that anyone dresses after being naked for whatever reason. Fortunately, our lives have not become that regimented and regulated – yet. Everyone has their own routine for how this is done, and all of us have our own idea on precisely how it should be done.
The illustrations accompanying this post are of a male model, a professional actor in the gay adult entertainment industry (porn), putting his jeans back on after a photo-shoot promoting one of his recent films. None of the images are pornographic, possibly provocative, but nothing obscene or objectionable for those of us who participate in social nudity, gay or otherwise.
Just like most of humanity, at some point in time, naturist/nudist people have to face the fact that we live in a predominantly textile (clothes-wearing) world and that we have to reluctantly or otherwise, adhere to the broader society’s norms and rules venture out in public dressed in the legally-required garments. We may not like the law but we have to conform, or otherwise face severe penalties.
Probably the majority of us who are dedicated bare practitioners (naturists/nudists), we may be enthusiastic and overjoyed to remove our garments, but we are more then likely to be be reluctant and slow when having to put them on. It’s only natural, we dread the moment we have to re-join the textile (clothed) ranks.
As any naturist and/or nudist will tell you, once clothes-freedom has been experienced, it does take a while to adjust to the feeling of having bare skin enclosed again. It isn’t a very severe shock to the system, but a brief period of adjustment is necessary. No matter how much we’re prepared, mentally, the clothing does cause discomfort once it comes into contact with our skin.
The sensation is akin to diving into a body of very cold water on a hot summer’s day. At least, that’s the way that it is for me.
And unlike our “dressing porn actor” model here, I can never find a reason to smile whenever I’m putting on clothes to cover any part of my bare body! But then, perhaps his grin is one of mischief. He’s obviously made the calculated decision to “go commando” (without underwear)! The rest of the world is ignorantly unaware of his condition underneath his jeans!
