Reflections: End of January, 2019

This January is my second anniversary here with ReNude Pride although it is the actual third January being published here. This month was a celebration as the second year of publication was observed. In keeping with a tradition I’ve established here on ReNude Pride, at the end of each month I post a commentary on that month and what accomplishments, if any, were made and other pertinent thoughts worth noting. I use this as a tool of keeping readers informed as well as a measure of success.


The above gif. image of a bare practitioner (naturist or nudist) running and then leaping (for joy, hopefully) is one that I introduced here during this past January anniversary’s celebration, as a part of my “blog signature.” The original plan was to use this as part of my blog signature for this month only, as an “anniversary special.”

The truth of the matter is that over the past month, I’ve become very fond of my bare practitioner buddy strutting his unashamed nakedness across the ending of every post here on ReNude Pride. I admire both his confidence in his nudity and his spirit of joy in leaping in ecstasy in being clothes-free. So much so that I have no plans to retire him until this site’s next anniversary. I’ll continue to use him throughout the year.

That is until the summer, at that time, I’m hoping to resurrect my skinny-dipping graphic from last year, shown below:

I’m missing this above skinny-dipper also, so I’ll welcome him back with open arms and without a cumbersome swim-suit (either his or mine)!

In the meantime, I always keep my eyes peeled searching for attractive and self-explanatory images that depict comfort and pride in gay nudity to use here. There is an adage that explains that “every picture is worth a thousand words.” Personally, that translates to me as “every nude man is worth his own story.”

If anyone reading here has a gif. image or a picture or graphic (caricature) that reinforces non-sexual bare pride, please send it attached to an email to: If you require credit, please include your first name only. I’ll make certain to acknowledge receipt.

“The existence in so many places of the tendency toward nudity, is not a testimony to the fallenness of man, It is rather a testimony to the original condition of man. What was normal and “very good” for man in his original state, still exists as a desire in his soul. The inner desire to be naked and unashamed is a longing to get back to our original perfection.”   ~ Philo Thelos  ~

As ReNude Pride now concludes its second anniversary and enters into its third year, the mission and ideals behind the blog continue to be the same: to celebrate and encourage same gender loving (bisexual and gay) bare practitioners (naturists or nudists) to be proud of who and what we are and to encourage and support those who are curious about and would like to explore bare opportunities. If any reader here has any questions or comments, please use the “Comments” app at the bottom of this post or email me using the above email address or the “Contact Me” form on this web-page.

Thank you all for supporting ReNude Pride and celebrating bare living!

Naked hugs!

Roger/ReNude Pride
