It is my honor and privilege to introduce to all of you Dean “Dandy-Deen” , the author of Black Nude Taurus blog (click title to view). He’s the “sleeping beauty” pictured in the photograph above. I met Dean this Spring and we’ve been communicating via text and email throughout our friendship. He’s a very fun guy to know and is a personable nude dude – full of energy and enthusiastic about life. The labels that Dean prefers to use to describe his serious allergy to clothing are: full-frontal, au naturel, nude, naked, bare, unclothed and clothesless. In this regard, he’s my type of man!
Before anyone suffers from a massive coronary, let me explain the title just a little bit further. As much as we bare practitioners (naturists/nudists) would love for the headlines in all the world’s media inform us of that fact, the reality is less dramatic than that. The truth of the matter is that Kenn Campbell-Harris, my nudist brother and fellow blogger (and a man I consider a kindred spirit) has evolved his blog, Gay Black Nudist, to what is now known as Nudist Planet.

Today is one of the few years that both the Eastern and Western traditions of Christianity celebrate the Easter holiday on the same date. The Eastern traditions (Orthodox, Armenian, Egyptian and Ethiopian Coptic) generally adhered to the old-style calendars and the Western traditions (Roman Catholic and Protestant) followed the new-style calendars. Usually, the Western Easter is earlier than the Eastern holiday. The icon (holy image) shown above depicts the Resurrection of the Christ, the reason for the holiday.
All of us, whether bare (nude) or textile (clothed), enjoy taking group photographs of ourselves with friends and/or family. A permanent reminder of a moment in time regardless if it was a year ago or just the past week. For the majority of us, it helps to refresh our memory of a happy time with those who are important in our lives. Many use some of their photographs to decorate the walls of their home: a “personal” decorative accessory to share with guests.
