Winter Nude Solitude!

Winter Nude Solitude!

I wrote this poem and submitted this photograph to a friend who had just started his own “newsletter” ten years ago. His newsletter was published as baldndeafngay on livejournal.com.

I “re-discovered” it during a spare moment over our recent mid-winter holidays. The picture was from the internet therefore I have no clue as to who and/or why it was posted anywhere. At the time, I felt it was appropriate for the poetic verse – and still feel that way today.

Winter Nude Solitude

Peace! Get naked! Enjoy!

********************

I almost forgot that as I “signed-off” on my first site here, I always concluded with “peace, get naked, enjoy!” The sentiments are still the same, “naked hugs” just seems a little less formal!

Naked hugs!

Hot!

Skinny-dipping!

Our bare practitioner co-conspirators and cohorts in the Southern Hemisphere are savoring in their season of bare adventures, bare delights, bare freedom and natural in nature! Every morning they begin their quest for another nude escapade to make their day complete and memorable!

Whereas we, in the Northern Hemisphere, struggle to survive another day in the barren wasteland with cold temperatures, viscious winds and snow and ice. Little relief is in sight!

Comfort should be an equal opportunity for all, no matter where we live!

Off with his clothes!

Stripping to enjoy the rays of sunshine and the warmth of the season! Bare is to be free from what you have to wear!

Completely natural in nature!

Taking advantage of natural spaces to appreciate our environment and all of the animals wandering there!

Outdoor cuisine and natural chefs!

Cooking over open grilles outside is a welcome treat for many bare practitioners. Meal times can be fun times and the less formality is often better!

Today’s post entry here on ReNude Pride affords us all a sampling of January jewels from the Southern Hemisphere to the rest of the world!

Naked hugs!

Bottoms-Up! End of December, 2022!

A tropical Bottoms-Up! to end 2022!

Our last month of 2022, and our last Bottoms-Up! feature for this entire year! A new series begins with the beginning of a new month and a new year tomorrow! Time for us to usher one farewell to buttocks and to prepare for another season of appreciation for our anatomy!

A farewell grin for 2022!
Buttocks out of the closet!

Full buttocks viewing is a great way to spend the time each day! We can accentuate our thrills in being completely clothes free and without any guilt and/or shame!

A new rear for an entirely new year!

As we all “kiss” 2022 farewell, we can utilize the same pair of lips to welcome us all to 2023!

Happy buttocks for all of 2023!

Bottoms-Up! can be admired and appreciated by all of us, whether inside facilities and homes or outside with only nature and other bare practitioners around us!

Bottoms-Up! Pyramid construction!

Naked hugs to all!

My Leaves Legacy!

Posing for photography class!

AKA: “Hey, I’m Gay And Bare For Pay!”

Background:

Now that I’ve captured your undivided attention and curiosity with my AKA (also known as) alternate title for today’s posting, Modelling Legacy. Growing up, I’d never even considered modelling while bare as a job option. Our parents always emphasized education, specifically university, which, for a Deaf gay adolescent eliminated posing clothes free as a lifetime career. The sole focus was knowledge, then employment.

While studying to earn my baccalaureate degree, I learned the both the fine art program and the photography art program at my university employed post-graduate students to pose as naked models for respective under-graduate (baccalaureate) classes. An ideal job for me to begin after being awarded my inaugural degree! Perfect for my bare practitioner (gay nudist) self! I could now be paid to be clothes free all day long on campus!

The summer after my university graduation seemed to me as endless. I was anxious and eager to begin my “career” as a nude model. I wasn’t an art student at university and had almost no interaction with any of those who had posed clothes free prior to me.

Leafy posing!

As the September of my post-graduate student life arrived, my limited (non-existent) contact with the university’s “model” team was solely with a member of the adjunct art faculty also served as the academic advisor to the school’s Lavender Club (at that time, the bisexual, gay and lesbian student group). As the club’s advisor, he knew that I was same gender loving but only aware of my nudist preference upon receipt of my application for the modelling programme.

He immediately acknowledged my enthusiasm for any and all opportunities to pose naked. He inquired of my knowledge of and/or interest in Washington, D.C.’s gay nudist social group, Lambda Soleil. He later introduced me to the organization and sponsored my membership therein.

Leafy prostration!

The Leaf Incident:

My first working day as a bare model was a “double” engagement. In the late morning, I posed inside one of the art studios for a class of first year art students. It wasn’t a surprise job as all it entailed was sitting on a stool in front of the class – totally naked. The major task was remaining still (lifeless) for ninety minutes.

Later that afternoon, with two other nude models, we posed outdoors in a massive pile of leaves for a photography class. This assignment, as explained by our model coordinator, involved us interacting with one another and, of course, with the leaves. The students were expected to capture on film a series of photos depicting autumn play.

Once the class assembled, I realized that all five of the students were gay. Our model advisor had not shared this to any of us before we agreed to this session. As an openly gay man myself, it was no problem for me. None of the other models seemed bothered by this. While the class was taking pictures, it was revealed by our modelling “boss” that the purpose of this photo-shoot was to show gay men in autumn play!

The two others that were modelling with me on this project were both several years older than me and with previous modelling experience at the university. One – whom I recognized – had been a member of the Lavender Club and identified as a bisexual man. The other one I never knew his sexuality.

Our “boss-man” appeared on site just as we were about to start our modelling exercise. He was introduced to the class by the instructor and as he reviewed the university’s guidelines for working with bare models (no personal or intimate contact allowed) he began stripping off his clothes! He was present to “supervise” our photo-shoot!

Receiving directions for a photo-shoot session!

I immediately began asking myself: did he need to be naked in order to supervise us posing nude? Was he going to be at every photo-shoot clothes free? Given all the attention he had given me during the last couple of weeks, the other models let me know that he obviously had an ulterior motive for stripping off his garments!

Once the photography instructor signaled “commence” we became active with our pile (mountain) of leaves. We took dives into leaves, we rolled in the leaves, we buried ourselves in leaves and gave each other leaf “showers!” There were only a small number of activities that we didn’t attempt to engage in. Cameras captured our images as we caroused ourselves in leaves!

After an hour of “playing” and posing in the leaves, I became light-headed and had trouble breathing. Suddenly, I fainted! Down on the ground! The next thing that I was aware was lying on my back after being revived by a nurse from the university clinic. A few minutes later, a mobile trauma unit arrived to transport me to the GWU (George Washington University) hospital. My face and neck were flushed (red) and heavily swollen, I continued to have shortness of breath and a severe bruise and laceration on the back of my head. I was kept overnight in hospital for monitoring and test results.

I have a severe allergy to leaf mold. It had never affected me previously. However, I never remember being that involved with that amount of moldy leaves before for that amount of time – almost 90 minutes.

Shortly after I returned to campus, a notice was displayed on the message board adjacent to the administration offices of the School of Art, Photography and Media:

“Roger does not play well with leaves!”

Naked hugs!

Bottoms-Up! Happy Halloween!

Serving a Halloween tasty treat!

This year, Bottoms-Up! and Halloween both occur on the exact same day! Therefore, today’s posting entry here will feature both occasions in harmony! Beware of the ghosts and the goblins!

Buttocks in disguise: Sandy!

For everyone able to attend their local beach today, sand offers an economical and natural costume for everyone’s buttocks. Don’t forget the glue to prevent to grains of sand from falling off!

Buttocks unfurled in Rainbow flag Pride!

October, the home month of Halloween, is also GLBTQ+ History Month! A good day to show our history, pride and our happy Halloween best!

An energetic pumpkin adorned buttocks!

The tradition of pumpkins for Halloween is beyond my imagination but the use of body-painting stimulates my interest!

Colourful buttocks!

Decorations for the icing on the cake are also exciting for our very own “cake” of full and delicious buttocks!

Taken hostage for his buttocks!

Halloween frequently involves “tricks or treats!” Being seized as a hostage is quite a trick to undertake – Halloween or not!

A buttocks treat!

These buttocks offer a “hot” treat guaranteed to melt all your butter!

Happy Halloween to all!

Naked hugs!

Bare Icon!

Naked painting nude!

Openly gay artist, Ainor Bagner, of Denmark – himself plainly nude – paints a fellow naked subject reading a book. The sexuality of the reader is unknown. Bagner was an admitted same gender loving man in an age that was hostile to those types of attractions and relationships. The clothing status and sexuality of the photographer is also unknown.

In the lower right-hand corner of the picture image is etched “1910.” More than a century ago. The photograph was made on the North Sea coast of Denmark.

A photographer from our past!

The artistic painter, Ainor Bagner, featured in the iconic photograph, was openly a gay man, then it is within reason to anticipate the same from both the subject model and the photographer. In the very early days of the 20th century, the tolerance for gay people was very restricted, even in a fairly progressive society such as Denmark (Scandinavia). The fact that this image survived all this time contributes to it’s historical significance.

Somewhat ironic is the fact that in the iconic photograph, a bare model is painted by a bare artist and that they are both posing on a barren (rocky) landscape. Bare – as opposed to barren – comfort and freedom for everyone!

The secondary image, above, is a vintage picture of a photographer posing with his camera on a ladder. This has no relationship to the Bagner photo except to represent the possible source of the image. This is not the actual photographer!

Bottoms-Up! September, 2022

September’s bottoms-up! trio!

September is here and in the Southern Hemisphere the Spring season has finally arrived! Here’s to all of our bottoms-up! enthusiasts “down there” who have several seasons to enjoy all the outdoor exposure. Have fun!

Those who live in the Northern Hemisphere, take advantage of the opportunities to view buttocks outdoors now. Colder weather is definitely not too far away!

A bottoms-up! splash!

As both hemispheres are transitioning changes this month, skinny-dipping is an activity that the majority of us enjoy and exposed buttocks are the attraction that keeps us coming back!

Sandy saturated buttocks!

The beach shoreline is almost always coated with a fine collection of sand. As the above image reminds us, sand and buttocks are equally inseparable!

Beach buttocks!

It doesn’t matter if we’re on the beach or inland. Climbing mountains or diving into pools, the attraction to buttocks knows no limitations or restrictions!

Togetherness!

Let’s all join in together and embrace one another and our bottoms-up! anatomy!

Naked hugs!

Clothes freedom!

Balcony: #1!

Balcony stroll!

Northern Hemisphere: Last Full Day of Summer, 2022!

The dreaded day is now upon us – tomorrow, September 23, – the Autumn season begins. Of course, we all know, from our experience, that this is not the exact last day that we’ll be able to parade about clothes free outside. The outdoor temperature change doesn’t occur overnight!

A balcony gives us a view of the outdoors and a space to “test” ourselves to the natural temperatures: cold or hot, comfortable or uncomfortable. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, this time of the year gives us a balcony area that has a very cozy, personal and “lived-in” look. We’ve had an entire season to accumulate and decorate!

The scene from his balcony!

Today is the last complete day of the season of summer, in the Northern Hemisphere. Tomorrow, the season officially changes. Here’s hoping everyone enjoys the last full day of summer! Pose as a very proud bare practitioner and take a selfie to document the occasion!

Naked hugs!

Bottoms-Up! August, 2022

Bottoms-Up! August, 2022

The good news is that all of our bare practitioner cohorts residing in the Southern Hemisphere are preparing to welcome their own warming season and eagerly anticipate unlimited opportunities for natural (outdoors) bottoms-up! adventures. The depressing news is that we, living in the Northern Hemisphere, bid farewell to our last full month of summer!

Aquatic bottoms-up!

No matter our geographic location, we are all about to undergo a change in our outdoor bottoms-up! pleasures and routines!

Hiking in nature: bottoms-up! view!

A natural hike offers an outstanding bottoms-up! scenic view, especially for all of us near the rear of the line of participants!

Beach bottoms-up!

Of course, whenever we engage in skinny-dipping delights, we are assured of the joys of bottoms-up! experiences and opportunities!

Bottoms-up! chef!

When cooking on an outdoor grille, caution is advised in order to protect the natural beauty of both our buttocks and our nudity!

Bottoms-up! embracing!

There’s no finer way to say farewell to the last full month of summer than to join with other bare practitioner friends and embrace the last day!

Naked hugs!

The fun begins!

One atop another, they both anticipate a day of bare practitioner delight as the warmth of the summer sun fuels their play!
