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.
Although Springtime, 2022, is now officially here with us in the Northern Hemisphere, we know from experience that outside temperatures don’t automatically change to match the season. These inside .gif images take that reality into account for this a month of transition!
Our man is just coming home from class or from work and is climbing the stairs in order to remove his pants and provide clothes freedom to his buttocks! A few more steps and then you can be bare with pride!
Our next guy drops his underwear onto the floor the minute he crosses the threshold to his apartment. No waiting until he gets into his bedroom. It’s bottoms-up! now!
He follows his stripping with flexing his bottoms-up! anatomy and letting his body enjoy being without any covering!
Our fitness man knows that his buddies prefer to visit the free weights room in total freedom from clothing. He gladly bares his buttocks and joins in the effort – to everyone’s delight!
His shorts are off, let the weight-lifting begin!

Author’s Note: The next post entry for here is planned for tomorrow, Friday, April 1, 2022, and the proposed topic is: “April Arrives!”
As January is my anniversary month of publishing ReNude Pride here, I feel it is my solemn duty as a committed bare practitioner (naturist or nudist), a same gender loving (gay) man and as this site’s author, to deliver a “state of the blog” message to reiterate the purpose of this space and my dedication to upholding my sacred duty. Now, if that very verbose statement didn’t put anyone asleep, in simple terms, this is my time to remember why I do this!
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.
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, 2018season. 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!
The lens of a camera is, upon reflection, nothing more than a substitute for the canvas and brush of an artist. It is an image, captured in a precise moment in time, that conveys to us the viewer a message from either the artist or the photographer. It is up to us, the viewer (“beholder”) to accept the view and the message or to reject it. Photography, like any other work of art, depends upon the acceptance and appreciation of the viewer.
Erectilephobia is my own term for any man who allows his fear of possibly having an erection in public to prevent him from trying social nudity. The most unfortunate aspect of this situation is that there is an equal possibility that the same man will not have an erection in public and therefore he’s allowing this possibility to prohibit him from the camaraderie and joys of social nudity. Arousals (erections) aren’t available “on demand” so none of us are immune from this happening, but we’re realists and refuse to let that possibility stand in our way of enjoyment.
In current American usage, the term “the birds and the bees” is a euphemism for sex. Please don’t ask me why, I didn’t invent the language here, so I have no earthly idea. Since birds and bees are unable to mate (procreate) with each other, the mystery only continues to confuse me (and others, I’m sure). After writing all of that, I’m still unclear on the background or history of the expression. However, it does represent the sexual act, especially when parents talk around other non-adults.
The The Naturist Society (TNS) and the American Association For Nude Recreation (AANR) are observing tomorrow, Saturday, July 14, 2018, as International Skinny-Dipping Day. Grab a friend, strip out of those clothes and jump into a body of water for some old-fashioned style swimming in just your natural skin. For those who live in colder climates, a heated indoor pool is highly recommended. No one wishes frost-bite on anyone, although I’m sure there are a few who would welcome a cooling experience from the summer’s heat and humidity!
When I first saw these video clips, my thoughts were returned to an earlier time in my life when I falsely assumed it was my ordained mission in my life to convert the entire universe into practicing nudity. I envisioned someday being canonized the Patron Saint of All Naturists/Nudists Forever, Amen. You may commence the celestial angelic drum-roll now, if you please! Admittedly, I was young and foolish but at least I was thinking big and trying to find a worthy cause to champion. Alas, reality set in by the time that I graduated secondary school and I eventually became a professor.
Today is National HIV Testing Day in the USA and some other parts of the world. Observed on June 27, annually, this date is designated to remind us all of the importance of knowing our HIV status and in doing so, enhance our health. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, is no longer the life-threatening condition that it once was and through treatment and medication, it is now a manageable disease. It remains, however, a communicable infection with serious consequences if untreated. That is the reason testing for HIV is very important to our health.
