An online journal celebrating the joys of living bare with pride! This site usually publishes every Monday and Friday. I may be irreverent but I am no way irrelevant! My preferred personal pronouns are he, him, his.
I wrote this poem and submitted this photograph to a friend who had just started his own “newsletter” ten years ago. His newsletter was published as baldndeafngay on livejournal.com.
I “re-discovered” it during a spare moment over our recent mid-winter holidays. The picture was from the internet therefore I have no clue as to who and/or why it was posted anywhere. At the time, I felt it was appropriate for the poetic verse – and still feel that way today.
Winter Nude Solitude
alone and nude
nude and alone
my nudity is home
naturally in nature
and home is nudity
nude and free

Peace! Get naked! Enjoy!
I almost forgot that as I “signed-off” on my first site here, I always concluded with “peace, get naked, enjoy!” The sentiments are still the same, “naked hugs” just seems a little less formal!

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.
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!
The body may somehow adjust to the chill in the air but the buttocks tend to shiver in the colder temperatures, snowfall or not!
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!
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” 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.
An extremely fickle month! One day it is pleasant enough to take a hike in the bare and barren woods – then the next day be forced to bundle under a dozen layers of clothing before stepping outside on the way to work. The month is notoriously unpredictable as to the outdoor temperatures and often bounces from one extremity to the next. If this is caused by global warming, then someone needs to educate the political leadership!
S’Naked is a combination of the words “snow” + the word “naked,” combine the two together and s’naked is the result. The activity is nothing more than being out in the snow while naked, nude or clothes-free (boots or shoes are allowed). “What does one do in the snow?” Anything that you care to do! Build a snowman, throw snowballs, lie down and create “snow angels” by waving your arms, building a bonfire. Any number of activities may be done while s’naked! Be creative!
One doesn’t necessarily have to be Canadian to celebrate Dominion of Canada Day. This international day honoring the maple leaf (the leaf silhouetted on the flag) is open and welcoming to everyone (unlike its neighbor to the south). This observance commemorates the enactment of the British North America Act on July 1, 1867, which officially united the colonies of Canada (then just Ontario and Quebec), Nova Scotia and New Brunswick into the larger, autonomous Dominion of Canada. It is celebrated as the national holiday of Canada (although with today being Sunday, tomorrow is also a holiday).
S’naked is nothing more than a combination of the words, snow + naked = s’naked. As the combination suggests, it is a variety of activities that bare practitioners (naturists, nudists) engage in when outside in the snow. It involves whatever activities the men who are s’naked wish to engage in, from snow-ball battles to lying down and creating snow angels. The possibilities are endless and there are no guidelines as to what does or does not constitute s’naked. That’s the beauty of being bare in the snow!
Here in the USA, today, Monday, February 20, is the day that we honor all of the presidents of the country, the ones living and those deceased. I guess this month was selected because two of the earliest presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, were born in February. As today is a national holiday, it is also the final three-day weekend of the winter season. For the past eight years, a fellow gay naturist/nudist friend of ours always invites between six to eight same gender loving bare couples to his home (near the Blue Ridge Mountains in rural Virginia) to spend the entire weekend, clothes-free, of course.
A nudist friend of mine from Massachusetts, USA, wisely informed me that the “proper” term for being bare (naked, nude) in the snow was s’naked. This was back in 2008, before I’d even contemplated anything as absurd and foolish as stripping off my clothes and romping completely carefree and clothes-free in the snow. Although I think of myself as a life-long naturist/nudist, up until that time, being bare and outside in the winter held no appeal to me. I knew that I preferred the heat and humidity and that was it. I had no desire to become a human popsicle!
