The very first Spring that Aaron, my spouse, and I were together, March, 2010, he took this picture of me. We were in a local park adjacent to the Potomac River that flows between Arlington, Virginia (where we live) and Washington, D.C., this nation’s capital city. In case anyone is wondering, a squirrel caught my attention just as Aaron flicked on the camera. The daffodil flowers had just begun blooming for that season.
Just imagine waking up and realizing that in the entire world, you are the solo – the one, the only, the completely total – bare practitioner left on this planet. There isn’t another naked or nude or clothes free person left anywhere around. Everyone else is proudly covering themselves in clothes! There is not another person who is bare and confident. You are it! What the hell do you do now? Do you scurry in shame into your closet, drag out a wardrobe of garments and conceal yourself?
It is almost unbelievable! Yet, when we sit back and think about it, the reality is very difficult to discredit. March may indeed be a month of madness but the bromantic (brotherhood of romance) moments during this time of the year are very few and very…unknown! Aaron, my spouse and I were trying to identify a passionate play-date for this month over the weekend and we were unable to recall a single occasion!
Jumping and leaping in the desert may not be for everyone – there are countless numbers of bare practitioners who are truly addicted to the beaches! However, the global phenomenon known as Leap Year only happens once every four years, so I imagine it is one occasional occurance that the overwhelming majority of us can live with! To everyone, Happy Leap Year and happy leap year day!
Even though 2020 is a “leap year” with an extra day applied to this month, it still remains the shortest month of the entire year! Believe it or not, the end of the month is almost here and so we arrive and observe yet another Bottoms-Up! The good news, at least here in the Northern Hemisphere, is that this is the very last full month of winter!
Monday, February 17, was the USA President’s Day holiday. This is the day that honors all the presidents of this country and is the only federal holiday observed during February. In the past, a friend invites five or six same gender loving couples to his home so that we can all skinny-dip in his indoor pool in celebration of the holiday! The wearing of clothes is discouraged between the time of arrival and the time of departure!
“S’Naked” is a very simple description of just being bare (naked, nude) while outside in the snow (snow + naked = s’naked). The word is probably complete unlisted in the dictionaries of the English language. This is due in part to limited usage – not even all the naturist and nudist communities are familiar with the term. It is primarily referenced within the same gender loving (bisexual and gay) bare practitioner community.
