Sunbathe or Sunburn?

Absorbing the sun!

The earth slowly begins the hemispheric shift of the sun’s rays from north to south now. Time to offer a gentle reminder to us all on the value of sunscreen – no matter where we live or what season we’re involved. A little effort enhances the health and safety of ourselves and our skin! A minimum effort now helps to prevent endless pain and suffering (or worse) in the future!

Sunscreen is for everyone!

A common misconception is that sunscreen is only beneficial for light-skinned – Caucasian – people. It has been proven time and time again that sunscreen is essential for all races of humanity. One person’s skin tone does not make her/him immune to skin cancer or skin disease. We are all susceptible and vulnerable, although our individual levels of tolerance may vary.

Applying sunscreen!

Rather than re-enter my current post entry on proper sunscreen use and recommendations again, I’m linking that posting here. To access, click to following title and review and refresh knowledge and memory:

Sunscreen is needed when skinny-dipping!

One common myth that persists about sunscreen use is that it is only needed to be applied during the summer. The proven medical and scientific determination is that sunscreen is vital whenever we are exposed to the sun’s rays, no matter the season of the year. The radiation intensity of sunlight occurs all year long.

Living in the east coast mid-Atlantic region of the USA, Aaron and I are sunscreen users when in winter as well as summer. Our skin quality deserves more than just a summertime attention!

Balcony: #2!

Balcony welcome!

Southern Hemisphere: The Warming Season Returns!

Congratulations to everyone living in the Southern Hemisphere! Your time for the warmth of the sunshine and the agreeable outdoor weather temperatures has now begun! Strip off all those burdensome clothing items and greet the day with both joy and pride.

We bare practitioners know all-too-well the splendour that awaits you in the upcoming seasons. Survey your balcony as you plan on how you’ll decorate the space this time of year. Enjoy your naked freedom!

A balcony profile!

This is the first day of the new season so bask away in anticipation. You’ve waited for this day to arrive so make certain you appreciate every moment given to you! Trust me, the time passes-by all-too-quickly!

Relax and enjoy your new season and day!

You have the entire season ahead of you – just remember not to waste any time dressed in clothing or worrying about that others may think of your nakedness or your sexuality. Be proud! Be yourself! Be happy!

Naked hugs!

Summer, 2022!

Skinny-dipping season has arrived!

Today marks the official beginning of the Summer of 2022! Whenever possible, remember to bare yourself and skinny-dip for all you’re worth. We know that this eventful season doesn’t last forever and the days somehow manage to fly past us! Lose the clothes and grab the sunscreen and have fun while you can!

Where there’s water, strip and skinny-dip!

The beach, a man-made pool, a lake, a river, relax and refresh – stay cool! This is the time for “fun-in-the-sun” so make every day productive! Autumn and cooler weather approaches all to soon!

Summer greetings!

For a great number of us, summer and skinny-dipping are synonymous. It is almost impossible to imagine one without the other. Those of us who advocate and embrace body and clothes freedom, this connection is – well – natural and understandable.

Classic skinny-dipping image!

However, to be fair and impartial, ReNude Pride acknowledges and respects that not all of us are aquatically oriented. There are bare practitioner enthusiasts who have absolutely no appreciation, desire or inclination to skinny-dip. To everyone, their own choosing! All of us have our own preferences for fun and pleasure.

A very happy and safe Summer, 2022, wish to everyone!

Naked hugs!

Bottoms-Up! May, 2022!

Kory Mitchell, exposing his buttocks in nature!

Not everyone has the luxury of baring themselves completely and observing bottoms-up! day totally “in the buff!” Kory Mitchell, in today’s opening photograph proudly presents us all with an option of exposing our derriere while remaining legally clothed. Whatever your situation, there are options for participating in bottoms-up!

Embracing buttocks!

Our men in the above image have no qualms about interlocking themselves in an embrace while celebrating their totally natural bodies close together!

Buttocks pyramid!

With Victoria Day (Canada) and Memorial Day (USA) both now behind us, summer has unofficially begun throughout North America. “Welcome back” is currently the expected greeting shared with the abundance of booties (buttocks) visible throughout this continent!

Floating in water!

Skinny-dipping (swimming naked) popularity multiplies and with it the return of bottoms-up scenery!

Outdoor grilling!

Outdoor chefs offer a variety of menu selections . “What’s your pleasure, sir?” is frequently asked as the waitperson approaches to take your meal order!

Bare your buttocks in honour of bottoms-up!

Naked hugs!

Slow Recuperation!

I’m slowly beginning to heal (recuperate) from a horrible recent infection of influenza! I honestly can’t remember feeling this bad and debilitated! Two weeks out of the classroom has made me feel extremely vulnerable!

Hopefully, with each passing day, I’ll be back in control and soon!

The Reconciliator!

Emeritus Archbishop Desmond Tutu!

A tribute to Emeritus Archbishop Desmond Tutu!

As same gender loving (SGL) men, my spouse, Aaron, and I are both impressed by the commitment and dedication of the late archbishop to the equality of all people. At a time when few – if any – contemporary African leaders even acknowledge our community’s existence, the bold and brave Anglican (Church of England) clergyman publicly and repeatedly espoused the inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer + (GLBTQ+) people into his agenda and messages. A most definite historical and notable accomplishment for any contemporary African icon.

In all the world, at that time, relatively few world leaders publicly joined in his efforts for inclusion. GLBTQ+ people were not deemed worthy of anyone’s political career or of the call for equal rights.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu and H.M. Queen Elizabeth II.

When aparthied (the legally enforced separation of the races) officially ceased to exist and democracy went into effect in South Africa in the 1990’s, it became the only country on the African continent to constitutionally guarantee and recognize the existence and the human rights of GLBTQ+ populations. This remarkable distinction is primarily the result of the extraordinary leadership of the ecclesiastical Desmond Tutu.

Honesty!

In the English language, there are numerous words that begin with the letter “F.” Some are polite, some are profane, some are descriptive and others are derogatory. There are those words that are simple and need no explanation and then there are those words that are so complex that volumes are required to deliver the meaning. Archbishop Desmond Tutu is indeed truly fortunate. There are three words that commence with the letter “F” that offer to all of humanity an accurate summation of his ideals and his life: Fairness, Foresight, Forgiveness.

Thank you, Desmond Tutu, for your exemplary example! Outstanding job: a lesson well taught!

Naked hugs!

Dr. King Day, 2022!

The Reverend Dr. King

This day, officially observed on the third Monday of January, annually, is the only national holiday honoring an American not of European birth or descent. Today commemorates the birthday of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., an African-American advocate of civil rights, justice and peace for all people throughout the world. He was born on January 15, 1929, to Rev. Michael J. King, Sr., and Alberta Williams King. At birth he was named after his father who legally changed both of their given names in tribute to the German religious reformer, Martin Luther, in 1934.

The Dr. King Memorial is the only one on the National Memorial Mall, Washington, D.C., dedicated to an African-American.

During his lifetime and beyond, the Reverend Dr. Martin L. King, Jr., was often considered a controversial figure of questionable integrity and intent, especially by the then-closeted (secret) homosexual FBI director, J. Edgar Hoover, a proven racist. His supporters championed his devotion to his faith, equality, freedom, justice, non-violence and peace for all humanity. His detractors viewed him as a communist, subversive and totally un-American.

Dr. King’s quote on commitment!

The Reverend Dr. King headed the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) an organization he founded and is best remembered for his nonviolent protests and activism against institutionalized racial discrimination and segregation in the USA. His actions led to the landmark U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964 and to the U.S. Voting Rights Act of 1965 that theoretically outlawed the often legally sanctioned sanctioned practices that forced African-Americans to endure second-class citizenship.

In 1964, Dr. King was awarded by King Gustaf VI Adolph of Sweden the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1977, he was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then-President Jimmy Carter.

President Obama dedicating the Dr. King Memorial!

Historical Irony:

It is both historically ironic and significant that the Reverend Dr. Martin L. King, Jr, the first African-American to be honored on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., had his memorial dedicated by the very first African-American President, Barack Hussein Obama, on August 22, 2011. A singular honor for both men!

A Guy Without Boxers, 2022!

Removing his boxers in order to become bare!

The title of my initial blog on the wordpress franchise A Guy Without Boxers. I began the project in 2012 and it was abruptly and without warning cancelled by the same franchise in the late summer of 2015. Even today, I have received no correspondence, notice, etc., over what specifically the issue or problem was from the wordpress offices.

At the time, Aaron and I were “live-in” partners. Marriage equality had just become legal here in the USA. Up until that time, we were content and satisfied with sharing our bed, condominium and lives together as a domestic couple and moving forward with A Guy Without Boxers.

We were married on August 15, 2015. Within one month, we were forced to wear a pair of boxers. The wordpress franchise had performed a sneak attack and cast both of us and our nakedness aside.

No boxers allowed avatar!

Today, a dream of mine returns. A Guy Without Boxers, 2022 debuts as a monthly page feature here on ReNude Pride! Aaron, my spouse, and I proudly discard our boxers and bare ourselves with all of you once again!

The new page premiers here later today. My plans for the first year of publication is to chronicle my bare career from my earliest days until the present – including ReNude Pride. The inclusion of the publication year as a part of the page title provides me the option of continuing should this supplemental feature of ReNude Pride warrant more insight. Some ideas for future publication include current trends, bare resorts, naked challenges, etc. I’m also seriously contemplating the offering of guest authors and any relevant topic they’re willing to address. I plan to share additional information on this aspect of this page later in this calendar year.

If no boxers are allowed, neither are any other bikinis or briefs!

Skinny dipping (nude swimming) is always a favored topic among bare practitioners as well as guys (and girls) without boxers! It serves as a fitness, recreational and social activity as well as offering a competitive nature to clothes free events. For many of us same gender loving naturists/nudists skinny dipping – no matter the multitude of benefits – is essentially fun!

Skinny dipping = nude swimming!

To access A Guy Without Boxers, 2022 go to the menu of ReNude Pride, scroll to “Pages” and click onto the title application there. Please feel welcome to share your thoughts!

Naked hugs!
