This is one of the few times of the year when I’m able to write a seasonal post that I don’t feel any guilt. During most times, while the Northern Hemisphere on earth is enjoying the Summer, those residing in the Southern Hemisphere are enduring their Winter. That makes it somewhat difficult when composing a post that’s relevant for all readers. I don’t want anyone to think that I’m unaware of their own situation. I guess that’s just an aspect of my inclusive nature.
PrEP is an abbreviation for pre-exposure prophylaxis, a medical term for a treatment to prevent the transmission of a disease or infection. For the purposes of this posting here on ReNude Pride, the disease is HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In the language and literature of the bisexual, men who have sex with men (MSM) and same gender loving community, PrEP is often referred and used instead of the commercial medication Truvada (emtricitabine and and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate). It is a once a day pill that helps prevent the transmission of HIV.
A pool party or, as it is sometimes referred to, a splash party is a great event in that it often is an ideal setting to integrate one’s bare and textile (clothes wearing) friends. If promoted as a skinny-dipping celebration, the bare community has no problems attending and the textiles often disregard their aversion to nudity as it is often viewed as not being naked but just simply “skinny-dipping.” Please don’t expect me to explain the difference because I really don’t understand it myself.
The new academic year began for me almost weeks ago. A new journey with new faces and new students to enlighten and to inspire (hopefully). It is also exciting for me, personally and professionally, as I am one of a team of three professors collaborating on a new class being offered this semester. As this upcoming November 11, 2018, marks the centenary of the signing of the armistice that ended the Great War of 1914-1918 (World War I), this particular class offers a retrospective on that event, the “war to end all wars.”
There are many blogs that I regularly follow. Some are strictly bare-related and others are are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (GLBTQ) oriented. Believe it or not, there are even a few that are very similar to ReNude Pride and regularly focus on the same gender loving (gay) and bare communities simultaneously. Often, these excellent publications offer posts that are directly related to articles that have recently posted here. The purpose of this Friday Footnote feature here is to offer everyone reading here the opportunity to read the perspectives of others.
This day, Monday, September 3, is a public holiday in the USA honoring all laborers, no matter what their profession, and the jobs that they perform. The above image is of a landscaper performing his task. Sadly, it is also the final public holiday of the summer season. In just three weeks, the Northern Hemisphere will transition from summer into autumn and the Southern Hemisphere embarks on the arrival of their springtime.
As difficult as it seems, we’ve already reached the last day of August, 2018. Time for our final opportunity to showcase our buttocks for the Summer, 2018. Author’s Note: September’s Bottom’s-Up! feature will be the first of the Autumn, 2018 season. As the guys in our featured gif image (above) demonstrate, there are some serious advantages to climbing up a waterfall. What better way to get “up-close-and-personal” with the gentleman ahead of you? I write from experience when I share with all of you that there are some distinct benefits to being a bare practitioner (naturist/nudist) follower! Same gender loving (gay) and bisexual men can attest to this truth!
