Bottoms-Up! August, 2021!

Oceanic bottoms-up!

Today is August 31, 2021! The end of the very last full month of summer! It is hard to believe that this season is disappearing as fast as the waves roll back into the ocean! In just a few brief weeks Autumn will be upon us.

Bottoms-up skinny dipper!

Bare buttocks always enliven the summer scenery as we all gladly and happily shed our apparel in order to enjoy the rewards of this season of clothes freedom! A reminder to everyone to please remember the benefits of sunscreen!

Bottoms-Up couple!

Summer is my personal favorite time of the year, therefore, it always seems to pass by at an accelerated rate of speed. Is it indeed Bottoms-Up! time again?

Three in a row!

Time today for one more skinny-dip before August, 2021, is gone forever!

Pool pleasure!

There is no better time than the present to offer awesome proof that undeniably, our buttocks do float!

Take care and stay bare!

A glass full of ice on his knee!

No matter where our man (above) has placed his ice, for me – at least – it is entirely too close for comfort. I know that many are bothered by heat and humidity but fortunately, I am not among that category! The two conditions don’t disturb me whatsoever! That’s why I thrive during the summer season (and am totally miserable during the winter)!

One very interesting discrepancy in this is the fact that my aversion to the cold doesn’t seem to disturb my penchant for being s’naked (snow + naked)! I’ve been enjoying the experience of being a s’naked bare practitioner since 2009! Of course, when there’s snow, I’m not outside clothes free more than 20 minutes at length. My tolerance for the cold does have limits!

Cooling his face!

The seeking of “relief” from the heat and the humidity of summer has always made me curious. As bare practitioners, we’re often commiserating about the burden of having to wear clothing rather than having the freedom to roam around with nothing on. Naturists and nudists have lamented the necessity of concealing themselves regularly throughout history.

Despite all the complaining about clothes, generally as the summer draws to the end, even the most committed and die-hard bare practitioners begin to lament the discomfort of the heat and humidity. Their tolerance level has been crossed and they join the chorus encouraging a “change” in the weather.

These souls need to remember the fierceness and severity of the winter weather. My solution is to enjoy the August temperatures each and every day; too soon the gloom of winter will be upon us and the cumbersome layers of clothing will be a welcome solution to frozen sorrow!

Ice Cream: cool-down or melt-down?

To all my buddies who aren’t to be satisfied by a glass of ice cubes beside them, an alternative choice is to devour a dish of ice cream to enlighten your soul. Just remember to eat it as fast as possible or else you’ll be covered in the melt-down!

It is an accepted human trait that it is almost impossible to please/satisfy all of the people all of the time. This characteristic allows us to appreciate our diversity and our individuality. “To thine own self be true!” Hence my belittling and dismissal of those who have low tolerance for the heat and the humidity of summer.

Yet during the winter, I am among the first to advocate and demand a major change of that season’s temperatures. Forget weather discrepancy, my personal comfort and preference is solely what matters. Anyone who disagrees with me is welcome to immigrate to another planet!

Take care and stay bare – as long as you’re able! Perhaps I should relocate the Equator to my neighborhood? Shouldn’t every bare practitioner think identical to me?

Naked hugs!

GIF Essay: Skinny-Dip/Beach Play!

Water’s edge: time to strip!

Skinny-dipping (swimming bare/naked/nude) is a perfect activity to engage into during the summer! For us bare practitioners (same gender loving – bisexual or gay – naturists/nudists) the chance to publicly remove all clothing and to join with our fellow devotees and enthusiasts is among the primary reasons why summer is so popular!

Stripping off our swimsuits doesn’t require endless planning or strategy. For many of us, it simply involves walking to our water source as we’re already undressed!

Water’s edge: time to step out of what we stripped off!

Not to worry about the sandy attachments to our buttocks, once we dive into the water, it is all gone anyway! Being bare is absolutely advantageous! If you’ve never skinny-dipped before, make plans to do so now while there’s still time!

Since the evolution of humanity, swimming naturally (naked) had been prevalent. The commercial development of the swimsuit wasn’t a major enterprise until the reign of Queen Victoria in the 1800’s. Up until that time, swimming was primarily segregated by gender in Europe and North America with Africa, Asia, Australia and South America largely ignoring gender discrimination.

The creation of the swimsuit helped to instill the sense of modesty in humanity. This led to the enactment of laws and ordinances against public nudity in general and skinny-dipping specifically – regardless of gender composition.

GIF Essay: Bare Practitioners Beach Play!

A fun post entry of a group of bare practitioner friends having a wonderful August afternoon. The .gif images don’t necessitate the publishing of a detailed text – the visual images are very self-explanatory!

Fun in the sun and on the sand!
Clothing is absolutely not necessary!
The race is on for both amusement and sunshine!
First prize must be a fresh towel!
The “finish wave” was splashed over a while back!
Next activity? Completive rugby!
Gordon wades into the water to cool-off!
Just before he’s swept off his feet by my Twin, Alex!
Unfortunately, all good days must come to an end!
Skinny-dipping is for everyone!

Strip! Become a bare practitioner! Be safe and have fun!

Take care and stay bare!

Sixth Anniversary!

Aaron and Roger, together!

August 15, 2015 – August 15, 2021

Aaron and Roger

Six years ago today, Aaron and I were united together, legally married, during the first full year of marriage equality here in the U.S.! After endless encouragement from both of our families, we took the initiative and made our relationship complete. Six years may not seem like a long time for many, however, for the both of us, it marked a significant commitment and the promise of happiness!

Aaron and Roger, true love!

We met one another in the late Springtime, 2010, and moved in with one another very shortly thereafter. We’ve been bromantic (male partners – same gender loving) ever since. We made no effort to legitimize our relationship until the marriage equality issue was completely resolved here in the USA.

Perhaps there is some truth to the traditional adage: “love at first sight!

Aaron and Roger: supporting one another!

Believe it or not, the above image is totally possible! My identical twin brother, Alex, and I are spending this month with our mother this year. As a means to jointly observe our anniversary, Aaron has joined us for a week. Mom lives on the island of Skyros so we’re figuratively and literally surrounded by water. No reason whatsoever to avoid any opportunity to celebrate with a skinny-dipping togetherness!

Aaron and Roger: fondling!

The very first time that Aaron and I met, it was a bare practitioner gathering held at the home of acquaintances. We set eyes on one another without one item of clothing concealing any part of our nudity. As much as possible, we’ve been clothes-free ever since and enjoy and relish our bare practitioner lives!


Of course, Alex, Aaron and myself are having a time to confidently be ourselves and to be nothing but proud of our family! The purpose of Alex and my visit – uplifting our Mom’s spirits – appears to be working! Her attitude and outlook has improved, especially with Aaron’s arrival here this past Friday evening!

Naked hugs!

Photo-Essay: Tan-Line Alert!

Tan-Line denoting his thong!

Tan-lines are notorious indicators that the person is most definitely not a dedicated nor a devoted bare practitioner! The proof is on the skin!

Frontal tan-line outline!

A gentle reminder to all of us residing in the Northern Hemisphere: the time is rapidly escaping the “tan-line” deadline. In order to achieve an even skin tone all over your body, strip out of those clothes now!

Same skin tone!

No matter what some people may think, a tan-line is visible on even the extremely fair-skinned men!

Tan-line around his waist!

Another misconception is that tan-lines are only apparent on Caucasian men. All of us have the potential for tan-lines, independent of ethnicity or race!

Please remember to generously apply sunscreen to eliminate any evidence of tan-lines!

Naked hugs!

“Naked Run” Rum Cocktail!

Come and join me for a beach cocktail!

The summer is an ideal time of the year to relax, be with friends and indulge in a cocktail. For a number of years, I published cocktail recipes here on ReNude Pride for the purpose to share with any interested guests on this site. The theme for those posts was: “Sex On The Beach.” This year, the featured recipe is a relatively new discovery: “The Naked Run!”

This particular cocktail recipe was shared to me by my friend, Kalvin, pictured with me below. He’s the cocktail “specialist” among my friends – my spouse, Aaron, and I are not fans of alcohol.

Myself and Kalvin!

The above photograph of Kalvin and I was taken at the unofficial “bare beach” along a river in central Virginia, the state where Aaron and I reside.

The cocktail!
Racing for their cocktail drink!

“Naked Run” Rum Cocktail Ingredients:

1 and 1/4 ounces light rum

1 and 1/4 ounces dark rum

2 ounces pineapple juice

1 ounce orange juice

1/4 ounce lime juice

1/4 ounce grenadine

Garnish: brandied or maraschino cherry

Directions: mix all the liquids together, serve over a cube of ice. Enjoy!

The ingredients are per serving.

Use caution when consuming alcohol!

Take care and stay bare!

My twin brother and I are spending August with our mother in Greece. Mom is the priority and during this time I will publish only once a week.

Footnote: August, 2021!

Denoting his proud footnote!

Today’s post entry is a follow-up/reminder to: “August, 2021: Homeward Bound!” (click to view). Hence the use of the label “footnote” in the title.

A friendly and gentle reminder that my identical twin brother, Alex, and I will be with our mother in Greece this month. She misses our father (as do we all) and our visit is to provide some relief to her, our brothers and their families. She is the only mother we’ll ever have – point made!

During this visit, mother is both our priority and purpose. For the month of August, I am modifying my publication schedule for ReNude Pride. Entry postings will publish on Monday ~ only one per week! I anticipate returning to my regular schedule upon my arrival back home in September.

A happy August and naked hugs to all!
