Welcome to the Nudecentric Briefs page here at ReNude Pride blog. The purpose of this featured page of this website is to offer helpful suggestions to those men who may be curious about or interested in exploring becoming a bare practitioner (naturist/nudist) but aren’t too confident about how to proceed. Nudecentric Briefs will offer different ideas and simple guidelines to follow as a means of re-acquainting our bodies and ourselves to the comforts of our nakedness. Remember, we were all born into this world clothes-free and if we take the time to observe a newborn, they’re usually always their happiest when they are completely bare!
All of us are already familiar with stripping off our clothes. We do it everyday just before we step into the bathtub or the shower. So the act of becoming bare isn’t the concern. For some, it’s the what to do once the clothes are off that presents the challenge. That’s what I plan to address here on Nudecentric Briefs.
The title, Nudecentric Briefs, explains the purpose or the mission of this page here on ReNude Pride. It’s “nudecentric” by being exactly what the word implies, nude-focused or nude-centered. The “briefs” refers to the concept of short, simple or basic guidelines or suggestions as to how to explore and expand our comfort with being bare or clothes-free. The ultimate goal is to have us all being both naked and proud!
The plan for Nudecentric Briefs is to post a new idea monthly for everyone to try. Please keep in mind that these are just suggestions. There is no requirement that needs to be fulfilled. What is good for one may not be the same for another! Everyone is free to employ as many as or as few of the ideas as suits their needs.
All that’s needed now is to remove your clothing and get bare!

Nudecentric Brief # 1:
Many of us start our morning routine of preparation for work with a shower followed by other grooming tasks (brushing our teeth, shaving, etc.). Practically all of us regularly bathe or shower nude, so this portion of our ritual is fairly set. But instead of getting dressed immediately after exiting the bathtub or shower, we can start off our day by performing the remainder of our personal hygiene and grooming tasks before we wrap ourselves in a towel or put on any item of clothing. We can do all of these why still naked from our bath or shower in order to become accustomed to keeping ourselves both bare and busy. This enables us to extend our nude comfort time without having to focus on the question: “Now that I’m nude, what do I do?”
Since most of our morning routine is performed in front of a mirror, it also provides us a chance to see our nudity as perhaps others do. We not only become comfortable being bare but also seeing ourselves bare as well.
Try this procedure for a month and see how easy the adjustment can be made.

Nudecentric Brief # 2:
This situation is best for those who have live-in room-mates/flat-mates or others. In a shared or communal environment, it’s easy to extend our bare time by taking advantage of our grooming routine and completing other personal hygiene tasks such as shaving and brushing our teeth while nude. In addition to prolonging our naked comfort it allows us to become accustomed to being clothes-free around others (who may or may not be bare themselves). It begins to instill in us a feeling of body acceptance and helps us to lose the shame that many learned regarding our nakedness around others. This comfort enables us to become free of self-conscious inhibitions that many were taught about nudity from a young age.
For those who live alone, extending our bare time always serves to increase our level of comfort with being free from clothing or covering. The fact that this time is usually spent in front of a mirror only increases our “nudity awareness” of how others may see us. As mentioned above, it enables our body acceptance of not only ourselves but others as well.

Nudecentric Brief #3:
Now that we are gaining comfort in being clothes-free and have (hopefully) allowed any room-mates to become acclimated to the idea or notion of our bare practices, this step involves gaining confidence in our own comfort level with nudity. After our morning hygiene ritual and before we begin dressing for the day ahead, try relaxing with a favorite morning beverage. Just enjoy the freedom of being completely bare while sipping coffee, tea or whatever. As important as the realization of the numerous activities that can be performed naked, so is the realization that it is equally important to know that simply being without clothes and just “hanging out” is wonderful, too.
Some of my friends have often shared with me that they do “some of their best planning and thinking while lounging nude.”
This can then be taken to another level by expanding “naked time” to reading the daily newspaper while clothes-free or checking online and reading emails without clothing.

Nudecentric Brief #4:
Some people who are trying the clothes-free life for the first time often complain: “I don’t know what to do once I’m nude.” The answer to that comment/question is quite simple: do what you would otherwise be doing if you were wearing clothes. Being bare is a freedom, it isn’t a magical lifestyle. The is no set clothes-free agenda that everyone is required to follow.
Leisure time is just that, leisure = relaxing. Be freely bare and enjoy nudity. There are many ways that people choose to spend their “free” or leisure time. Just take off the clothes and let your skin b-r-e-a-t-h-e! Do anything that you would normally do when at home alone.
The important thing to do here is to learn how to be yourself in just your own natural skin! Be natural while you are “natural” and don’t think about being clothes-free. Get comfortable being you.

Nudecentric Briefs #5:
Thinking about being bare gets fairly boring after a while. Performing regular routine household chores and tasks while clothes-free is a great way to occupy the mind and to help easing into nude comfort. Not focusing on the fact that you’re not wearing clothes while performing normal chores is a way to relax and allowing actually being naked to become what it truly is: our natural state of being.
In other words, what is often perceived by many as abnormal (being bare) begins to feel normal. As this happens, it transforms us emotionally and mentally. This can and often does lead to the understanding that it is clothing, itself, that is abnormal!

Adopt A Confident Stance
The guy in the image above is demonstrating a stance that exhibits some remorse, shame or discomfort with his nudity. He’s got both his hands “cupped” over or concealing his genitals which is sending to all a message of guilt about being bare. It’s as though he has something to “hide” from us all. Is he embarrassed about being nude? Is his penis too small? His posture exudes a complete lack of confidence in himself and his nakedness.
Instead, adopt a stance or posture that shows confidence in your nudity and pride in being yourself, without the concealment of clothes. Using a mirror, practice a natural stance with either your hands relaxed and by your side (as in the picture above) or with your hands clasped behind your back, as shown below.

Nudecentric Briefs #7:
Whether or not you live alone, maintain your confidence when you’re completely bare and are approached by a family member or friend who is totally clothed. Nudity where you live is nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about. If you happen to be taking selfie pictures of your nakedness and someone walks in on your posing, there’s no need for any panic or concern. If the person walking in seems embarrassed, relax them.
Explain to them that you’re curious about nudity and are taking photos of yourself to share with naturist or nudist friends in order to learn their input. Feel free to invite the person to take the pictures for you or, even better, invite them to try nudity along with you.
They may surprise you and strip off their clothes with you and either take the photographs for you or join with you in the clothes-free selfie! Who knows how curious they may be about nakedness themselves!
