The World Naked Bike Ride is held annually, throughout the year, on every single continent on earth except Antarctica (note: penguins and seals don’t pedal bicycles). The event isn’t restricted by precipitation and most rides continue even through the rain. Downpours may affect the number of riders, but for the most part, the rides are still held. This event takes place all year long as extreme temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere are usually moderate in the Northern, and vice-versa.
This academic year began this past Tuesday, the day after the Labor Day holiday. The overwhelming majority of my students are those that have previously taken a class that I have instructed within my department’s curriculum here at the university. The sole exception to this is a new class that my department head assigned to me based on my evaluations from this university’s School of Inter-Disciplinary Studies class that I taught. This new class is a revision of an introduction to our Deaf Studies curriculum that offers an exploration of both Deaf culture and Deaf studies.
It is the final day of the month of August, 2019, and time for another feature of male buttocks proudly displayed by men from not only internet sources but also from some very proud bare readers here of ReNude Pride. During the Northern Hemisphere’s summer this year, I encouraged readers from both hemispheres to submit photographs of their buttocks to be published in celebration of everyone’s bottom’s up! This posting commemorates their bare bodies!
First, a very gentle reminder of the meanings of a few of the terms used in the title. “Summer” refers to a season of the year and shouldn’t need any additional explanation. “Skinny-dipping” is nothing more than swimming without a swimsuit or completely bare. “Bromance” is used as a colloquial combination for “love” (bro = brother = male; romance = love). The purpose of this posting entry is to offer insight on same gender love between two men.
Social nudity is a term often used to describe a social environment or setting where most, if not all, of the interacting (socializing) persons are voluntarily bare or clothes free. It is not to be confused with a situation where nakedness is mandatory or required whether the gathering or assembly is also mandatory or required. Social nudity is a free choice made by all the participants at the event or gathering.
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?
This date is also known as Gay Naturist Day, Gay Nudist Day and also as Gay Naturist/Nudist Day! It makes no difference if we’re alone in the forest or on a crowded beach, whether we’re inside or outdoors, whether we’re gay. lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer (GLBTQ), what is primary is our freedom to be both ourselves and clothes free today!
