The Stonewall Inn riots happened in New York City during June, 1969 – for many gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (GLBTQ) people, that event led to the modern growing trend towards the equality of GLBTQ populations all over the world. Although many of our community are still awaiting for their complete freedom from oppression, the New York City riots indeed created a recognition of our struggle for human rights. The”rainbow flag” is considered by all to represent our struggle.
My spouse, Aaron, and I thoroughly love to appear publicly with our hands resting on one another’s buttocks. It is our fondness for sharing our comfort and our intimacy with our bodies. For this month’s Bottoms-Up! entry, Aaron did suggest an alternate title for this posting: COVID-19 (coronavirus) Kiss My Buttocks! That remains the unofficial title of this particular entry.
The Memorial Day holiday is the day in the USA that is officially observed in honor of all of the men and women who sacrificed their lives in the defense of this country. It is also celebrated here as the unofficial beginning of the Summer Season – the time of outdoor pleasure and play for the bisexual and the same gender loving (gay) naturist and nude communities.
The very first Spring that Aaron, my spouse, and I were together, March, 2010, he took this picture of me. We were in a local park adjacent to the Potomac River that flows between Arlington, Virginia (where we live) and Washington, D.C., this nation’s capital city. In case anyone is wondering, a squirrel caught my attention just as Aaron flicked on the camera. The daffodil flowers had just begun blooming for that season.
It is almost unbelievable! Yet, when we sit back and think about it, the reality is very difficult to discredit. March may indeed be a month of madness but the bromantic (brotherhood of romance) moments during this time of the year are very few and very…unknown! Aaron, my spouse and I were trying to identify a passionate play-date for this month over the weekend and we were unable to recall a single occasion!
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!
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.
Monday, February 17, was the USA President’s Day holiday. This is the day that honors all the presidents of this country and is the only federal holiday observed during February. In the past, a friend invites five or six same gender loving couples to his home so that we can all skinny-dip in his indoor pool in celebration of the holiday! The wearing of clothes is discouraged between the time of arrival and the time of departure!
“S’Naked” is a very simple description of just being bare (naked, nude) while outside in the snow (snow + naked = s’naked). The word is probably complete unlisted in the dictionaries of the English language. This is due in part to limited usage – not even all the naturist and nudist communities are familiar with the term. It is primarily referenced within the same gender loving (bisexual and gay) bare practitioner community.
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!
