ReNude Pride, 2018

Just as I’ve written here previously, the title of this site, ReNude Pride, is a play on the word, renewed. Just as the Springtime brings with it a renewal of life with the return of foliage on trees and flowers in nature, so to with the Springtime and being bare. In the Spring, for those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, we also welcome with open arms a return to outdoor nudity as well as a return to nature and living clothes-free.


March is the month that Springtime returns to the Northern Hemisphere. I felt it also an opportune time to encourage all of us, whether part-time (occasional) or as-often-as-possible bare practitioners  (naturist/nudist), to be proud of who we are and of our joy in living without the oppression and restraint of clothing. It makes no sense to cover up the beauty of our skin and our naked bodies.


Samuel Langhorne Clemens (also known more popularly as Mark Twain) was a humorist who combined his wit into ridiculing society. In the above quote, he is most definitely making a statement on the absurdity of clothing. Mr. Clemens/Mark Twain was famous not only for the books that we wrote, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Story of Huckleberry Finn, but more importantly, for his observations on his contemporary society and the ridiculous social customs in place which more likely than not inconvenienced rather than served any constructive purpose.

As the winter slowly disappears and many of us become restless in anticipation of the arrival of Spring, I intend this post to help us all to “step outside with pride.” A subtle message to boost our spirits and to renew our commitment to living our lives as bare as possible.


For some bare practitioners (nudists/naturists), it is easy to become so overwhelmed in our fears and insecurities about other aspects of our daily lives that we allow these feelings and moments of doubt to overshadow our nudity as well. Naturally, our moods affect our daily lives. After all, we’re all human and it is difficult to separate the many different aspects of our private lives.

It is important for all of us to understand that life happens to all of us. There are good times and there are times that aren’t quite as good as others. We should remember that when an unpleasant moment or experience happens, not to waste time dwelling on it but instead go about our business and not allow one situation to ruin what’s left of our day. For example, if something happens at work that upsets me, move along after the fact rather than wallow in my anger. When I leave the office, leave the anger back inside my office and not bring it out into the world where it does no one any good, least of all me.


Instead, I try to focus on a calming thought, such as soon I’ll be away from the office and back at home where I am free to get as naked as I want to be. My goal is to never permit anyone or any situation to deter my joy at being clothes-free. It’s bad enough that I have to work wearing clothes. My time away from the office and classroom is my time to be me and as bare as possible with no negative thoughts allowed!

In order to keep myself as a proud bare practitioner (nudist/naturist) I know that I need to maintain a calm composure. To do this, I strive to stay positive in my outlook and stay as stress-free as I am able. This means eliminating all unpleasant thoughts and allowing no one to dictate my actions and attitude.


Naked hugs!

    1. Good idea except that we are all from different regions of our countries as well as from different countries and continents. The list would be endless! 🙂 Naked hugs!


  1. Awesome article!
    Nudity is one of life’s few, yet greatest stress relievers…well, at least for myself, you Rog, and for many other people. In the right psychological mindset, with the right emotional attitude, under the logical environmental conditions, and of course observing ordinances and laws of one’s community, getting naked and being nude can be a great personal comfort.
    I always find it sad that even in this still-new 21st century, there are prudish people in the world who choose to take something like human nudity or nakedness – which is so natural and often necessary for us to become, and turn it into something perverted. That there are prudish people who choose to make human nudity/being naked something for which a person – regardless of age and/or physical appearance, should be made ashamed, and/or have that person’s nude form and nakedness subjected to judgment and/or ridicule by other people.
    Because of society’s negative (and often religious) stigma on nudity, I have always, and will always shamelessly continue to identify as one who is (among many good things about me) a nudist and naturist. (To this day, my offhand revelation causes some people to give me cross- eye – as though I should be ashamed or am telling “too much information”). Whenever I can, I talk about my personal enjoyment and reasons for wanting to get or to be naked/nude – or at the very least, be near-naked/nude (near-naked as in, being naked under my full-length bathrobe on a cool or cold day).
    Naked hugs, Rog!

    1. As usual, I agree with everything you shared – 100% – Rob! You always present your topics in a very articulate and sensible fashion, my friend. Funny, I sometimes get the same reaction from people when they realize that I’m a naturist/nudist whenever possible. It’s like I was suddenly transformed into this alien from outer space! I am grateful for your observations here, Rob! Much love, naked hugs and a gentle tug!
