World Naked Gardening Day!

Outdoor gardening!

World Naked Gardening Day is Saturday, May 7, 2022!

World Naked Gardening Day is internationally observed on the first Saturday in May, annually. Many countries, regions, provinces, etc., have a local date/day specific to locality in addition to this global event. Consult neighboring gardening, horticultural, naturist and nudist groups or organizations for actual dates and/or celebrations.

The first annual World Naked Gardening Day occurred on September 10, 2005. In 2007, the event date was changed to the first Saturday in May. In 2018, the New Zealand Naturist Federation adopted the last Saturday in October, annually, as World Naked Gardening Day due to the climate of the Southern Hemisphere. In Canada, the first Saturday in May can be especially cold so the alternate day of the first Saturday in June is Naked Canadian Gardening Day.

Seasonal Interchange

In Winter, when the trees are bare,

We mortals don our winter wear.

In Spring, when trees begin to dress,

We mortals then start wearing less.

Until, for some, with Summer’s heat,

The role reversal is complete.

Planting naturally!

My spouse, Aaron, and I observe World Naked Gardening Day at our home. We invite over other bare practitioner couples to replant house plants (each couple is asked to bring their own). This year – thus far – will be the first celebration of this “nature activity” in two years due to the coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic and quarantine. As of today, four other couples have confirmed their joining us for this endeavour!

My legal and significant other has entitled our gathering and planting: BTD (bare transplant day)!

We use our condominium’s balcony as our “garden” area and use blankets and sheets to hang on the railing so we don’t offend any neighbors by our blatant and confident nudity. While socializing and planting, our fellow enthusiasts (guests) often offer new gardening advice. This mid-day activity is then followed by a modest weekend brunch.

World Naked Gardening Day!

Quite naturally, bare landscaping (groundskeeping, yardwork) is also an option for World Naked Gardening Day! An ideal way to encourage comfort, health and open clothes freedom (public naturist/nudist lifestyle)! If possible, join us in promoting our natural leisure pleasures!

Happy World Naked Gardening Day!

Naked hugs!

May Day, 2022!

May Day, 2022!

The month of May, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, is often recognized as the “month of flowers.” Generally, the season of Spring is in full bloom by the time that May arrives and the majority of this hemisphere is bathed and bedecked in full colour – visual proof of natural renewal! The folk adage: “April showers bring May flowers,” is repeated time and time again!

Since the introduction of the Christian era, the month of May is dedicated to honouring the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. A multitude of churches conduct litanies and services in the favour of the Virgin Mary and in celebrating the status of motherhood.

Gradually, the reformations in Christianity led to differing observances in the arrival of May. The traditional ecclesiastical churches continued their celebrations honouring the Virgin Mary. The newer protesting churches incorporated a more spirited and less spiritual feature that included colourful flowers and ribbons using dancing and including a may pole that the participants wrapped the ribbons around and culminated with the floral crowning of a “May Queen.”

The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917, ended the public observance of May Day there with any religious or spiritual nature. Instead, the bolshevik (communist) ideology of the force and union of the workers and the military superiority of the communist-socialist world would become the new focused intent of May Day. Flowers all but disappeared as armaments and steel revealed endurance and strength. The collapse of the Soviet Union in the late 1980’s brought the demise of this belligerent stance.

Celebrating May!

In today’s world, the military might and sacred legacy of May have largely been replaced by emphasis on environmental sufficiency and natural reliability. The benefits of nature in our lives and in our world are causes for awareness, education, practice and resources for productivity. Working together, in harmony with our natural surroundings, we can hopefully achieve a balance not only in our lives but in the resources of Earth as well!

Your Thoughts?

Bare practitioner, early Spring day!

From the lack of any blooms or foliage on the trees, it is obvious this is a day early in the Spring – perhaps even the first day of the season! From our subject’s nudity, it is apparent that the daytime outdoor temperature is moderate and probably quite comfortable.

For this particular posting, I invite each one of you to take a moment and read the following questions. Contemplate your thoughts. If you feel inspired, please use the comments section below to share your ideas with others. Remember the adage: “A picture gives us one thousand words.”

What does he see? What is he thinking? Is he happy that Spring is finally here? Has he lost something? Is he dreaming of the future? Is he recalling a moment from the past? Is he a proud bare practitioner? Does he miss his lover?

Have fun!

Naked hugs!

USA Goes DST!

Time adjustment!

This week’s publishing schedule is Sunday and Thursday.

Today, Sunday, March 13, 2022, we advance our clocks, time-pieces and watches one full hour. Daylight Savings Time (DST) officially returns at precisely 2:00 a.m. The adjustments guarantee that the change-over hour is immediately followed by 3:01 a.m.

DST was inaugurated primarily as a cost-saving measure by industry during World War II. In theory, it offered longer daylight and reduced energy consumption during peak production demands of the war effort. Given the patriotic fervor of the time, both laborers and manufacturers responded favorably.

Workers and their families quickly adapted to the “extra” daylight this provision provided. It became so popular that after the war, the shift in time was continued during the summer season. Federal legislation extended the observed time period from just the months of summer to the middle of March through the beginning of November, annually.

Enjoy the longer days of sunlight!

Take care and stay bare!

Bottoms-Up! February, 2022

S’naked bottoms-up!

As long as there is snow probable during this month – incorporating that into this posting for 2022 eliminates the need to repeat it again until perhaps next year! One snowfall per year is more than enough for my liking.

A s’naked jogger!

Gloves and a hat may be worn during the month of January to ensure the warmth of the s’naked enthusiast and hopefully the jogging helps to keep his buttocks comfortable!

Snowy mountains and icy waters!

The body may somehow adjust to the chill in the air but the buttocks tend to shiver in the colder temperatures, snowfall or not!

Beach buttocks buddies!

A quick trip to the Southern Hemisphere affords us the opportunity for a scenic variety of bottom’s-up! experiences during this time of the year! Regardless of where we live, regular exercise helps us maintain our buttocks appeal!

Bottom’s-Up fitness exercise!

Remember, the last day of the month is dedicated to all buttocks! However, displaying our assets is not restricted to just this one day! Be bold and be proud!

Take care and stay bare!

S’Naked Virgin!

“The S’Naked Virgin – me!”

Background:

S’Naked is a convenient English colloquialism combining the words snow with the word naked. It is used to explain and/or reference a bare practitioner’s being clothes free outside in a snow environment. A winterized version of skinny-dipping in the snow! This is a very basic, essential and simplified version of the term.

Virgin is used here in the title to designate either first time or initiation. It is not intended to imply or suggest any sexual (xxx-rated) activity or engagement – at least, not at this time! My beloved spouse, Aaron, and I have no agenda favoring or leading to our public pornography debut!

******************************

The above picture of yours truly (me) was photographed by Aaron in January, 2010, – our first winter together as a live-in couple. It was also my initial adventure in being s’naked! My conclusion? I had the very best teacher imaginable! In fact, we were legally married five years later and remain so today.

Same snow virgin!

Growing up, my identical twin brother, Alex, and I never had the desire or the opportunity to attempt any type of s’naked adventure. Neither one of us had any affection for any cold weather and snow was useless to us. There was no thrill in being bare and in “frozen” nature!

However, my spouse grew up loving the s’naked life and relished his moments as a totally natural man! Our first winter together he made it his mission in life to introduce me into the s’naked world! I really didn’t have much of a choice in the matter! In retrospect, I wouldn’t even dream of making any sort of change in the entire adventure!

******************************

The same Saturday morning that I willingly sacrificed my s’naked virginity, we were confronted with the fact that we were joined by a small audience. Aaron had his back to the threesome, but as they approached us from the building corner, I noticed the trio as they rapidly dropped their jeans and underwear and exposed themselves to me – laughing and waving!

Spectator discovery!

I pointed and Aaron turned around. He and our “spectator” audience engaged in an animated conversation without any of us even attempting to conceal our exposure or nudity. They did convey to my then “live-in” partner their admiration of our interracial comfort with nakedness during a snow-storm!

We became acquaintances and later that same year they did join us for a few naked cocktail gatherings in Washington, D.C., bars. In the event that anyone is wondering, they willingly stripped off their clothing when with Aaron and myself at the nude “happy hours!”

Take care and stay bare!

Relaxed Protocols

As the quarantines and other guidelines and recommendations surrounding the coronovirus epidemic are being relaxed in various countries, everyone is cautioned not to expect an automatic “return to normalcy” in our daily lives. The viral infection hasn’t disappeared or even been completely eradicated. Transmission remains a very real possibility and there exists no known vaccine or cure.

For all of us bare practitioners (bisexual and gay naturists and nudists), maintaining a respectful distance and other safe practices are highly encouraged! The reality of a secondary wave of infection remains a valid concern.

Naked hugs!

Warning: Daylight Savings Time

Many of us bare practitioners anxiously welcome the beginning of daylight savings time, no matter where we live. It afford us, at least, an extra hour of daylight, or more, for as long as it endures. This additional natural lighting permits us more time to roam throughout without having to wear clothing! Not that we require the daylight in order to enjoy our being naked, but daylight savings time (DST) does permit us a longer period of natural (outdoor) fun and freedom!

March Madness!

The title is very suggestive of the game of basketball because here in the USA, for many years the very term, March Madness, was used enthusiastically and emphatically by sports fans to denote the month as one of endless collegiate competitions leading to champions in the basketball world. As an obsessive basketball fan myself, I am one to overuse the designation every year regardless of whether or not the topic is basketball.

Valentine’s Day, 2020

The best and the traditional way to greet someone on this international day of affection, devotion, love and romance is with either a hug or a kiss (or both) and the salutation: “Happy Valentine’s Day!” So the above gif. image extends to everyone reading here a hug and a kiss and the approved salutation is included in this paragraph. Best wishes to all of you (single or otherwise) for this special day!
