Read the caption on the above T-shirt closely as we all welcome 2018! I wish to everyone all my best for all of 2018 and beyond. If you haven’t yet tried social nudity but regularly read here, make a resolution now to get out and remove your clothing and experience for yourself the freedom of being a bare practitioner (naturist/nudist), even if it’s just for one day. What have you got to loose except perhaps an indoctrinated false sense of modesty?

Dress For Success
Some may wonder: why is a blog that celebrates same gender loving male (gay) social nudity seriously feature a posting discussing “dressing for success?” Shouldn’t the focus be on stripping for fun and relaxation? My response to those thoughts is that no, I’m not high on any mind-altering substance and that there are countless articles on removing clothing and enjoying life bare but very few on how we bare practitioners (naturists/nudists) don we now our gay apparel (to adopt a more festive seasonal phrase) after our clothes-freedom experiences.
Taking the subway is a hassle-free means to get to your destination. There would be even less stress involved if those of us who are bare practitioners (naturists/nudists) could enjoy the convenience of travelling clothes-free as is Daniel Shoneye in the photograph above. I know for a fact that if nudity were allowed, I’d subway all over the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Alas, that’s probably never going to happen anytime soon but at least I can hope for clothes-freedom somewhere in my future!
Being Politically Correct (NSFW)
Political correctness is an euphemism for being inclusive and polite, something the current leadership in the USA is totally unfamiliar with and a stranger to the ideal. I had promised myself that I would strive to remain aloof from politics on this site for the next four years (hopefully). Obviously, I have failed miserably in that endeavor.
Bottoms-Up! October, 2017
It’s the last day of October and it’s also Halloween here in the USA! Happy Halloween and feel free to celebrate by body-painting a pumpkin face on your buttocks – if you dare! For those who may not be quite so adventurous, have fun and be safe, anyway! Just beware of all the ghosts and goblins who come out to play!
Being a bare practitioner (naturist/nudist) for almost my entire life, I admit that I have seen things that probably would be unbelievable to most of my faint-hearted textile (clothes wearing) acquaintances. Some may even being disgusted with such sights but I have no way of knowing what, exactly, they find disgusting: the nudity or the action. But I imagine it’s safe to think both. Narrow minds don’t tend see beyond their noses in order to pass judgment upon others.
My Summer, 2017, Reading List
What those who regularly read here already know, Summer is my favorite season of the year. Not only is it a time to wander outdoors bare, unburdened by clothes, but as an professional educator, it’s the time of year with no lessons to prepare or lectures to give. Much of my free time, spent outside, is in the company of a book. Reading mostly for pleasure and not research. Being bare at will and with books in the heat and humidity are the major reasons why I enjoy summers.
One Last Skinny-Dip!
One week from today, the Summer of 2017 officially ends and the Autumn season begins. It has been a fun summer for me and I hope the same for those of you reading and visiting ReNude Pride. This weekend presents a unique opportunity for those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere as it allows us one more opportunity to get outside and enjoy a final outdoor skinny-dip (naked swim) before the official end of the “Season of Fun in the Sun.” I’m highlighting the words “officially” and “official” in this paragraph and post as experience shows us that it is still possible to have moderating temperatures even after the seasonal transition.
Tell-Tale Sign: Tan-Lines
No matter how hard some men may try, there’s simply no escaping it. If you’ve been wearing your swim-suit all season long, every time you’re at the beach or pool. the first time that you decide to go bare, it’s going to be obvious to all: ‘This is one of the few times that you’ve been nude in your birthday suit this summer.” It just isn’t possible to fool Mother Nature and all your bare brethren.
Labor Day Holiday, USA
Today, September 4, is the annual Labor Day holiday here in the USA. This is the date set aside by the U.S. Congress to honor the endeavors and labors of this country’s workforce and their contributions to the national economy and nation’s well-being. This holiday has no fixed date as it is customarily observed on the first Monday of September every year. It is also one of the few holidays in the USA that isn’t related to either a patriotic or a religious theme. Sort of an everyman’s (or everyperson’s) holiday.
