As a teenager, I was always fascinated and probably borderline obsessed with the exotic men that I met and/or observed around me. As Alex, my identical twin brother, and I had accepted and acknowledged our same gender attraction since our early teen years, I thought nothing out of the ordinary about this fact. I felt it was simply part of my sexual exploration and self-discovery. One culture that I particularly remember having fantasies about were the Polynesians of the South Pacific Ocean. These included the men from Samoa, Tonga, Hawaii, the Marquesas Islands, the Maori (the indigenous peoples of New Zealand), Tahiti, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Tokelau and other islands. The Polynesians are noted for their seafaring skills as well as their intricate body tattoos.
Interview: “Newbie” Nude Vinnie
As a continuation of my feature series of interviews with my fellow clothes-freedom loving bloggers, it is my pleasure to introduce to those of you reading here, Vinnie, the author of two blogs here on WordPress.com. His first blog, Vinnieh, (click title to view) focuses on movie reviews and entertainment news. I started following this blog when I was initially publishing my older blog. He lives in the United Kingdom. His newer blog, begun this past Spring, is named Buns Are All That You Require, which offers his views of life, sexuality and is most definitely not suitable for work and contains adult content. This blog is where he’s posted his nude exploits.
Nudist Planet Interview Published
As I promised, my interview with Kenn Campbell-Harris published yesterday afternoon on Nudist Planet. Click the website title to be directly linked to the interview. As I wrote here in my reflections post, End of Month Reflections, July, 2017, earlier this week, I am sharing this post with all of you, in case anyone is interested in reading about me, my life and my experiences as a same gender loving (gay) bare practitioner (naturist/nudist). The questions posed to me were very thought-provoking.
End of Month Reflections: July, 2017
In the photo above, as the clouds gather on the horizon, our nude dude on the beach thoughtfully gazes out towards the shoreline, unconcerned over the approaching storm. He’s content to remain where he is and as he is: bare. He’s focused on his thinking and is oblivious to worrying about something as unimportant as the weather. Why waste the energy fretting over a situation (weather) which not one of us can control? He has more important matters to contemplate.
Interview: Dean of Black Nude Taurus
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!
The Nudist Planet Arrives!
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.

Easter Sunday: Get Bare or Beware!
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.
