Bottoms-Up! End of January, 2023!

Bottoms-Up! Boulevard!

The first month of the new nude year is now upon us! Hopefully, the entire 2023 contains for you all that you desire and dream! Happy 2023 to all!

Bottoming up!

Baring our bottoms (buttocks) is the custom/tradition here at ReNude Pride on the very last day of every month. However, we all appreciate and recognize the joy of being completely bare and fully exposed each and everyday of the month!

Bottoms-up! laid up!

Not all of us have the luxury of outdoor freedom this time of the year, so we have to take full advantage of a bottoms-up! adventure whenever and wherever it is available!

Situational bottoms-up!

Whether during work or during play, bottoms-up! as a pleasure can be experienced no matter what day!

Sharing a kiss!

Have a wonderful 2023 and don’t forget to share your “bottoms-up!” with your family and friends!

Naked hugs!

A Guy Without Boxers!

The heading from my first website: A Guy Without Boxers!

Updating ReNude Pride needs to take place monthly – if not more often! However, I’m only a human who happens to be both the author and the editor here (both unpaid positions)! In addition, I have a full-time job and a full-time and desirable spouse!

Fortunately, Aaron, my spouse, and I are both bare practitioners – as often as possible given our busy schedules! Therefore, we don’t waste an awful lot of precious energy or time in order to get dressed and/or to become undressed. Usually, each task is undertaken separately only once a day!

My original gravatar for A Guy Without Boxers!

Aaron has agreed to assume the duties of author/editor of the A Guy Without Boxers page here at ReNude Pride. His contribution to reducing the stress in my life and for undertaking a more productive role here. Now, I think we all know where this duty will take us – both ourselves!

A little passion goes a very long way!

It shouldn’t take “rocket science” to figure out the answer to that question. In order to guarantee an appropriate conclusion, the above .gif image should deliver you there!

Back to Aaron: he’s already planned four different post entries for this page for 2023. He’s already prepared and entered a brief introduction and his first posting for this year! Way to go, Aaron! There may be hope for an eventual retirement for me, yet!

Ripping off his boxers!

To review Aaron’s efforts, click the direct link to this page that is listed below. Have fun and remember no clothing allowed when you visit this site! Please note that to access the current post entry, you must scroll down the page to gain the desired posting, the exact opposite process from this blog! WordPress delight!

A Guy Without Boxers!

Have fun being boxer-free!

Friday Footnote: DVDs!

Friday footnote!

Practically everyone who reads here regularly is aware of my professional status as an educator. My university operates on a two-semester per year schedule (Spring and Autumn) with a compacted Summer semester tossed in just to confuse everyone, especially the university administration.

I opt for the Spring/Autumn system which allows me (usually) my summers to canter about as clothes free as legally possible. Who is that idiot that claims there is no paradise here on earth? Work on this equation: summer + nudity = paradise! A bare practitioner’s “dream-come-true!”

One rainy day this past Summer, 2022, I went into the attic of our condominium to organize what little we pack away up there. I discovered a plastic storage box filled with DVD collections of television series, films, etc.! I had forgotten all about them!

My spouse, Aaron, and I are not vegetables who lounge in front of a TV screen whenever possible. Frankly, at this precise moment, I have absolutely no idea where the television remote control is even kept – an I live here!

Translation: I should probably reconsider this post entry before I publish!

Noah’s Arc!

Some of the treasures contained within this portable archive were Noah’s Arc (both complete seasons plus two movie productions), Law & Order (entire original series), Oz (all episodes), ER (the entire series), Six Feet Under (entire series, two DVD packages which had never been opened), and an assortment of cinema films – some opened, mostly sealed – plus some gay pornography DVDs that were initially either Aaron’s or my own.

After conducting my spontaneous inventory of the contents, I relocated the box to the very back of our coat closet downstairs, where I rediscovered it again during the winter holiday.

Six Feet Under and The Wire were two of my favourite series although there are unopened discs from both collections. Both featured a mixed-race gay couple in their casts that always captured my attention. Now, if I could just find that damn portable remote control!

It’s a three-day holiday weekend here. Both Aaron and I could relax, lay back and review some of the “classics” from the past!

Naked hugs!

6th Anniversary Treat!

ReNude Pride’s 6th Anniversary Cake!

Help yourself to a slice of anniversary cake!

In celebrating ReNude Pride’s 6th anniversary following closely behind the beginning of a new nude year with endless possibilities, maybe it is time to consider a new perspective and explore a different situation! But first things first, namely, it is time to honour the title here, renude (renewed). Strip off the garment baggage and remember the ancient wisdom adage:

“The mind is a terrible thing to waste!”

A friendly stroll!

From some of the websites that I follow and read regularly, click the links below for a refreshing reward!

Reciprocity!

Mutual fondling!

What is good for one is good for each other!

Reciprocity is the practice of exchanging actions, gestures or things with others for mutual benefit. In reference to the .gif image above, fondling one another’s buttocks is very comforting and relaxing for our duo. I’m sure we can all imagine the exchanges that will benefit them both later!

In a relationship, the benefits derived through reciprocity can be both pleasurable and sensual and they can be rewarding (financially and status) or both. It all depends on the desires and expectations of the individuals involved. Apparently, our two men featured here have no misgivings or qualms over their situation.

Abduction or torture or both?

The guy being flipped onto the shoulder of the man above is an entirely different matter. From the visual, we have no way of knowing what happened or what the result will be. It could be painful and traumatic. They could be willing co-conspirators, one could be willing and the other a victim or they could both be coerced and unwilling. More information is necessary.

In all relationships, communication, respect and understanding is essential for the satisfaction and success of the individuals involved as well as the relationship itself. This is the beginning of a new year and an ideal time for us to think about our lives and improvements that need to happen and/or changes that must occur in order for us all to move forward and find happiness!

Cooperation is key!

Happy Nude New Year, 2023!

Bare buttocks line-up!

Happy every day of 2023 to everyone here!

A casual stroll, just clothes free!

“Should old acquaintance be forgot? Strip it off and show what you’ve got!”

May your new, nude year – 2023 – be filled with bare practitioner experiences and opportunities to share with family and friends! May all of your dreams become reality and all of your goals and hopes produce fruition! Best wishes to all! Take care and proudly stay bare!

Happy bare 2023!

Enjoy the festivities! Just remember, it will be another full year before the same can be experienced again!

Celebrating the arrival of 2023!

Goodbye, Boxers!

Removal (stripping)!

Hooray! The Autumn semester at my university officially ended today at 12:30 p.m.! Hallelujah! Winter break is in place and the next time that I return to campus will be in 2023! Thinking in advance, I did wisely decide to wait until after I had arrived back inside the condominium where Aaron and I live before I began stripping off my clothes. The last garment that I discarded was my boxers!

Body and clothes freedom until the end of my university’s Winter Break! It may be cold outside but we – my spouse, Aaron, and myself – keep our condominium comfortable and warm on the inside! There has to be some legitimate reason for us both to have to get dressed in clothes and go to work everyday!

Boxers removed!

We do have family and friends who are planning for visiting with us over the holiday season. They’re also bare practitioners so there’s no need for either one of us to even think about having to launder clothing anytime soon! Yet another benefit of living life clothes free!

Aaron and Roger snug on the couch!

Aaron and I live in a one-bedroom condominium. When we have guests stay overnight, we generally surrender our bedroom and we sleep either on the couch or on the floor (and sometimes both)! We’re together, that’s what matters!

Naked hugs!

Winter Holidays!

Explanation:

The title “Bare-dom” and posting were originally planned for today’s entry here. However, the feeling on my part, as the author of ReNude Pride is that this particular posting is more prominent and more relevant. “Bare-dom” is now planned for publication in February, 2023. I apologize for any confusion!

Background:

The term political correctness is a concept that began with the advent of the first inauguration of then-incoming President Bill Clinton in the 1990’s. The phrase was synonymous with the words “thoughtfulness,” “sensitivity” and basically “polite.” It essentially implied “respect and treat others as you expect them to treat and respect you.”

Unfortunately, the idea was never accepted or followed by the religious-right extremists nor the U.S. republican political party. Once George Bush #2 came into power, the principle rapidly fell into disfavor then totally abandoned.

The election of President Barack Obama brought the theory but not the original phrase back into practice. Regrettably, when he retired, the practice did also. Now even the thought of such a notion as decency has disappeared from the ideals and minds of the American public. The thinking these days is now: no good deed goes unpunished!

The context and point here is simple: we need to return to the basic “ground rule” of decency for everyone. This country, especially, is now too multicultural and varied for us to automatically assume that all the people who live here have identical beliefs and values. That path of thinking is now misinformed, obsolete and no longer relevant. Probably, it is something that is no longer true even within the same family, much less the neighborhood, community, city and state.

Even within the same religion, there exist varying traditions. For example, within Christianity, there are differences in when certain holidays are celebrated and/or observed. One assumption doesn’t apply to everyone anymore.

Observation: not included on the above listing is December 26: Boxing Day in the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and other realms throughout the Commonwealth!

My spouse, Aaron, and I have discussed this quite a number of times among ourselves and with friends. There is no doubt in our minds whatsoever that all of us need to be considerate of one another and work together to restore an element of humanity back into our daily lives!

Naked hugs!

Bottoms-Up! Happy Halloween!

Serving a Halloween tasty treat!

This year, Bottoms-Up! and Halloween both occur on the exact same day! Therefore, today’s posting entry here will feature both occasions in harmony! Beware of the ghosts and the goblins!

Buttocks in disguise: Sandy!

For everyone able to attend their local beach today, sand offers an economical and natural costume for everyone’s buttocks. Don’t forget the glue to prevent to grains of sand from falling off!

Buttocks unfurled in Rainbow flag Pride!

October, the home month of Halloween, is also GLBTQ+ History Month! A good day to show our history, pride and our happy Halloween best!

An energetic pumpkin adorned buttocks!

The tradition of pumpkins for Halloween is beyond my imagination but the use of body-painting stimulates my interest!

Colourful buttocks!

Decorations for the icing on the cake are also exciting for our very own “cake” of full and delicious buttocks!

Taken hostage for his buttocks!

Halloween frequently involves “tricks or treats!” Being seized as a hostage is quite a trick to undertake – Halloween or not!

A buttocks treat!

These buttocks offer a “hot” treat guaranteed to melt all your butter!

Happy Halloween to all!

Naked hugs!

Felipe: Tattoo Costume!

Felipe Ferreira and his tattoo!

Brazilian-born fashion and bare practitioner model Felipe Ferreira is very proud of his pride tattoo and has no qualms about his same gender loving sexuality nor his preference for nudity. As his career has progressed, he is increasingly comfortable about both of those aspects of his private life.

Felipe Ferreira

Unfortunately, sometimes the photography captures the tattoo in reverse but that doesn’t stop our model from continuing to flaunt his pride in being himself! edirP (Pride spelled backwards) is not a recognizable word (spoken or text) in any human language that I am aware.

Felipe adjusting his purple underwear briefs!

Felipe initially attracted my attention in 2017, when his employment as a model for men’s underwear launched. At the time, he garnered celebrity status as a bold and honest openly bisexual man with his pride tattoo proclaiming his sexuality.

Two years later, in 2019, Felipe publicly announced himself as an exclusively same gender loving (gay) man. In his interview, he credited his bisexual “cover” as the work of a modeling agency’s public relations expert intent on advancement in his career.

Underwear and GLBTQ+ Rainbow flag!

At that time, the publicity person’s deception was labelled a falsehood with the goal of keeping Felipe as appealing to both men and women. He readily admitted to his discomfort and regret with the duplicity regarding his sexual nature. In his interview he stated:

“The reason for my having the pride tattoo is my confidence in being a same gender loving man! We all know that pride in who we are is not just limited to the month of June. A tattoo is one way to show our pride to all 365 days every year.” ~ Felipe Ferreira ~ gay model, 2019

Of course, we all know that the wearing of a pride tattoo is no guarantee that we automatically experience the confidence we desire. The tattoo itself doesn’t bestow pride – it is merely symbolic of what we achieve through self-acceptance, effort and hard work. Ferreira understands this and by his example – the pride tattoo and being the man he truly is – is showing others his self-acceptance and reminding us all of his pride!

Modeling his jock-strap (athletic supporter)!

Aside from his modelling men’s underwear, his professional engagements have expanded into music as well. He is a professional DJ promoting popular and progressive house, hip-hop and reggae. In this industrial field, being clothes free and same gender loving is not a concern or a problem.

Felipe’s pride isn’t restricted to just his sexuality. Some of his more recent photography assignments openly depict his confidence and self-acceptance of his nakedness. He’s never personally felt any conflict or discomfort whenever he privately engaged in a social nudity situation although with his modelling career he has been “encouraged” by industry publicists to pursue – at the very least – appearing underwear.

Felipe Ferreira (buttocks) with openly gay Raphael Horst!

Clarification:

Felipe Ferreira does not publicly self-identify with the label: bare practitioner. Probably because many people misunderstand the distinction. He does openly acknowledge himself as a gay nudist – which qualifies himself for that identity.

Now, as his celebrity and professionalism has increased and soared, his recognition and his same gender loving status is no longer considered a major issue. He now appears in male only scenes on camera and video with other openly gay and bare entertainers (soft pornography). In the image directly above with Raphael Horst and below with Shabazz, he promotes his bare practitioner comfort and pride!

Felipe kissing Shabazz with pride!

“Gay and naked is who and what I am as a man. It is not a problem or a reason for shame. It is me and my tattoo!” ~ Felipe Ferreira ~ gay model, 2021

Obviously, he needs no more for a Halloween costume than his pride tattoo! As a bare practitioner, do we require any better endorsement? In my humble opinion, Felipe Ferreira’s company is enough example and recommendation!

Happy Halloween!

Naked hugs!
