Up until almost ten years ago, one of my favorite bare activities was to attend a local event sponsored by one of the several Washington, D.C., nudist social groups. The monthly (and sometimes twice a month event) was promoted as either “Nude Cocktails,” “Naked Happy Hour,” or a variety of other names indicative of the fact that it was clothes free and alcohol consumption was strongly encouraged.
August of every year has the distinction of being the very last full month of the summer season in the Northern Hemisphere. The transition from Summer into Autumn occurs during the month of September. This somewhat depressing and mundane notoriety for a month of an otherwise happy and joyous season is very deserving of a “special” day to guarantee its continued popularity with all the masses of those living north of the Equator.
This particular thought has always caused me an unusual amount of confusion in addition to an inordinate number of questions. Why do male same gender loving (bisexual or gay) bars and establishments always label bare practitioner (naked, nude) dancers as XXX rated entertainment? The facility itself is primarily focused on a same gender loving audience and the overwhelming majority of those in attendance are the same. Thus, why is it necessary to even label the performances offered?
One of my favorite personal past-times of the summertime is always the freedom to read whatever I want in my most comfortable position: bare! It is an activity that can be enjoyed whether alone or in a group of others. It is something that requires very little aside from a book or magazine and a pair of glasses. Of course, sunscreen and a thermos of beverage is necessary and that’s all.
“June is known as gay pride month.” A very basic and original statement to denote a very unique and ultimate description of the importance and the significance of the 30 day month. However, in today’s world and its ever-changing culture and politics, “June is known as gay pride month” is no longer relevant nor entirely truthful.
Yes! Finally! Spring is now officially here in the Northern Hemisphere! The meteorological Spring began back on March but now the astronomical season of Springtime started this past Wednesday evening (yesterday) and today being the first full day. No matter which beginning of the season we follow, it is now undoubtedly with us!
As January is my anniversary month of publishing ReNude Pride here, I feel it is my solemn duty as a committed bare practitioner (naturist or nudist), a same gender loving (gay) man and as this site’s author, to deliver a “state of the blog” message to reiterate the purpose of this space and my dedication to upholding my sacred duty. Now, if that very verbose statement didn’t put anyone asleep, in simple terms, this is my time to remember why I do this!
