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!

August: Time To Skinny-Dip!

A race to the ocean!

This bare practitioner couple feel the urgent need to share a skinny-dipping (swimming naked) experience together as they welcome the last full-month of the summer season in the Northern Hemisphere.

Closer and closer!

As they race towards the oceanic destination, their excitement increases as they seek to satisfy their desire for aquatic antics!

The surf rolls in!

The surf welcomes their energy and enthusiasm and invites their participation in its vast area of fun and games!

Mounting his shoulders!

Their joy and pleasure knows no limits as they laughingly engage in a turn of mutual summer glee and happiness!

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!

Charge!

The month of August stands before them ready to offer itself for their exploration well deserved fulfillment!

Best August wishes to all!

Naked hugs!

Aaron and I both agree this particular graphic ideally represents “Skinny-dipping!”

Bottoms-Up! July, 2022

Bottoms-up! beach!

In the Northern Hemisphere, the month of July is always the first full month of the summer season. Almost synonymous with the month of July is the season in which it occurs: summer! Beach and buttocks offer an ideal combination for the theme of Bottom’s Up!

Bottoms-Up! embrace

Alone, together or as a part of a larger group, a bare practitioner and the beach offer a scene and a solution that erases both anxiety and boredom!

A stroll with a buddy!

Not all of our companions on the beach need to be human. Dogs are considered our best friend by many!

A sandy coating for bottoms-up!

Sand and sunshine give us a winning combination for a very joyful July! Bottoms up! to all!

Naked hugs!

Bottoms-Up! June, 2022!

Pride celebration!

Today marks the last day of Pride Month here on ReNude Pride as well as being our regular Bottoms-Up! June, 2022! feature. It is with honour that we show some interracial harmony as well as pride in our post entry today!

More beautiful buttocks!

Our trio presented above unite in sharing their buttocks while standing fully nude side-by-side with no feelings of shame! They’ve earned the distinction of having a true concept of both GLBTQ+ pride and nude pride! Congratulations on learning the concept, men! Firm looking buttocks, by the way!

The new inclusive PROGRESS rainbow pride flag!

Sunbathing is an ideal time to strip out of our swimsuits and beautify our world by baring our bold buttocks!

A sand-covered bottoms-up!

Skinny-dipping is a major favourite past-time activity for all of us who enjoy being bottoms-up!

Poolside skinny-dipper!

The sunshine and the water always feel good and help us relax! Additionally, it also helps to keep us cool during the rise in summer temperatures!

A towel on the beach!

A sandy beach and a towel are ideal once the Summer officially begins on June 21, annually! Snacks and a water help to keep us refreshed!

Bottoms-Up!

An endless summer of Bottoms-Up! buttocks for all! Take care and stay bare!

Naked hugs!

World Naked Bike Ride Pride!

World Naked Bike Ride, London, UK: Progress rainbow body painted design!

As an introduction, World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR) is most definitely not affiliated officially with the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer+ (GLBTQ+) community. Many of our culture endorse and support this global effort, but we do so as individuals. There are numerous allied endorsers and or sponsors, but for the most part, the WNBR is an independent international movement of primarily environmental and safety concerns and interests. As the name itself suggests, it is widely popular and supported by the naturist/nudist enthusiasts worldwide.

Our bold and courageous bare practitioner in the above image has decorated his chest with body paint reflecting the Progress flag. This banner depicts the inclusive diversity found within our community and culture worldwide.

Thumbs-up to the WNBR!

The “thumbs-up” approval along with his rainbow designed neckwear is this rider’s salute to the WNBR! The spring and/or summer months, depending on the hemisphere, appear to be the primary time of year for these events to occur. All bike rides are locally generated and operated and there is no central organization to schedule. The majority of registrations and promotions happen online as do sponsorships.

Our man switches his neckwear onto his wrists!

The WNBR is an international clothing optional bike ride with the overwhelming majority of participants riding bicycles but every year with more riding skateboards or inline skates. In 2003, Conrad Schmidt developed the concept of the WNBR after organizing the same for the Artists for Peace/Artists Against War (AFP/AAW). The original WNBR message was against oil dependency and advocating the individuality and power of the human body.

The first WNBR took place in 2004.

Since 2006, the message has simplified and the main focus of the event is cycling advocacy, pedestrian safety and sharing the roadways.

Bare Practitioner Pride!

Bare Practitioners Trail entrance!

As bare practitioners (same gender loving naturists/nudists) we wholeheartedly embrace, encourage and endorse the following character traits of our community and our culture:

Acceptance: of our body and clothes freedom nature and our sexuality.

Belief: in our inalienable and natural right to determine and to be ourselves.

Confidence: in all of us to be what and who we basically and honestly are without any apology, guilt or shame.

Dedication: in advocating and supporting these principles for everyone, no matter who they are and where they live.

Pride: our shining star!

As bare practitioners we all know that we are entitled to and experience our pride throughout the entire year. Confidence and self-expression are not limited and/or restricted to just the month of June, annually. Pride month is when we, as both a community and a culture, remind the the rest of humanity of who we all are and to celebrate our collective accomplishments and achievements! This is the time of the year for all of us to join together in celebrating, demonstrating, exhibiting, representing, sharing and showing our confidence and pride in being ourselves!

Unknowingly for many but consciously for a few, our pride in ourselves as bare practitioners casts us into the status of role model. Unwittingly, countless numbers of others exploring our community and culture may look upon each one of us as an example – a role model – of a life they find appealing. We may never be aware of this service to others. Simply being who and what we truly are often can and does inspire other.

Back-up plans!

As an accidental as well as an unintentional bare practitioner example, our “option for action” is to continue to live our life. Our nakedness and our sexuality combined have determined us as “unique.” This uniqueness, in turn, awarded us the unsolicited position of role model to anyone observing our community and our culture.

If someone is curious about our lifestyle as same gender loving and as a naturist/nudist, we should all strive to be as welcoming as possible and reply to their questions. It is also beneficial to know someone of our community who is very receptive and has the dedication and the patience to spend with those seeking knowledge of our lives. The vast majority of us can recall our own exploration of the community and what proved helpful and informative for us.

Coming together as a community!

When Alex, my identical twin brother, and I first began exploring the openly nude skinny-dipping riverside site in the city where we grew up, we were the youngest there in a group of primarily university ages and older. As we are both Deaf, no one around seemed bothered by reading our questions and writing their answers. The major problem for all of us seemed to be reading the handwriting! All the guys there were patient and ready to respond. No one appeared to resent our “joining” their beach!

Bottoms-up!

Twin and I always remembered to thank our role models for both their patience and their tolerance. We had already acknowledged our sexuality so the majority of our questions regarded interacting among the same gender loving (gay) nude community. There were two of so, so we were often laughed at as being the groups “class.” Neither of us are able to recall if any of our “tutors” had shared with us their major as being education.

As bare practitioners, we recognize the importance of our service as role-models. In order for future generations of bare practitioners to be happy and succeed, it is our duty to explain and represent our community and culture as best as possible. Our level of comfort in being a role-model often is seen by others as a determination of our dedication to our lifestyle. Nothing could be further from the truth. The personal interaction between role-model and the person we’re mentoring is often the determining factor as to level of comfort.

All of us, as either role-model or as the one being tutored, cooperating together for our common good are making for a better and stronger bare practitioner movement, a community and culture based on confidence and pride!

Naked hugs!

World Naked Gardening Day!

Outdoor gardening!

World Naked Gardening Day is Saturday, May 7, 2022!

World Naked Gardening Day is internationally observed on the first Saturday in May, annually. Many countries, regions, provinces, etc., have a local date/day specific to locality in addition to this global event. Consult neighboring gardening, horticultural, naturist and nudist groups or organizations for actual dates and/or celebrations.

The first annual World Naked Gardening Day occurred on September 10, 2005. In 2007, the event date was changed to the first Saturday in May. In 2018, the New Zealand Naturist Federation adopted the last Saturday in October, annually, as World Naked Gardening Day due to the climate of the Southern Hemisphere. In Canada, the first Saturday in May can be especially cold so the alternate day of the first Saturday in June is Naked Canadian Gardening Day.

Floral display!

Seasonal Interchange

In Winter, when the trees are bare,

We mortals don our winter wear.

In Spring, when trees begin to dress,

We mortals then start wearing less.

Until, for some, with Summer’s heat,

The role reversal is complete.

Planting naturally!

My spouse, Aaron, and I observe World Naked Gardening Day at our home. We invite over other bare practitioner couples to replant house plants (each couple is asked to bring their own). This year – thus far – will be the first celebration of this “nature activity” in two years due to the coronavirus COVID-19 epidemic and quarantine. As of today, four other couples have confirmed their joining us for this endeavour!

My legal and significant other has entitled our gathering and planting: BTD (bare transplant day)!

We use our condominium’s balcony as our “garden” area and use blankets and sheets to hang on the railing so we don’t offend any neighbors by our blatant and confident nudity. While socializing and planting, our fellow enthusiasts (guests) often offer new gardening advice. This mid-day activity is then followed by a modest weekend brunch.

World Naked Gardening Day!

Quite naturally, bare landscaping (groundskeeping, yardwork) is also an option for World Naked Gardening Day! An ideal way to encourage comfort, health and open clothes freedom (public naturist/nudist lifestyle)! If possible, join us in promoting our natural leisure pleasures!

Happy World Naked Gardening Day!

Naked hugs!

May Day, 2022!

May Day, 2022!

The month of May, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, is often recognized as the “month of flowers.” Generally, the season of Spring is in full bloom by the time that May arrives and the majority of this hemisphere is bathed and bedecked in full colour – visual proof of natural renewal! The folk adage: “April showers bring May flowers,” is repeated time and time again!

Since the introduction of the Christian era, the month of May is dedicated to honouring the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. A multitude of churches conduct litanies and services in the favour of the Virgin Mary and in celebrating the status of motherhood.

Kory Mitchell welcomes the month of May!

Gradually, the reformations in Christianity led to differing observances in the arrival of May. The traditional ecclesiastical churches continued their celebrations honouring the Virgin Mary. The newer protesting churches incorporated a more spirited and less spiritual feature that included colourful flowers and ribbons using dancing and including a may pole that the participants wrapped the ribbons around and culminated with the floral crowning of a “May Queen.”

Dallas “Flashman” Wade and a crown!

The Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917, ended the public observance of May Day there with any religious or spiritual nature. Instead, the bolshevik (communist) ideology of the force and union of the workers and the military superiority of the communist-socialist world would become the new focused intent of May Day. Flowers all but disappeared as armaments and steel revealed endurance and strength. The collapse of the Soviet Union in the late 1980’s brought the demise of this belligerent stance.

Celebrating May!

In today’s world, the military might and sacred legacy of May have largely been replaced by emphasis on environmental sufficiency and natural reliability. The benefits of nature in our lives and in our world are causes for awareness, education, practice and resources for productivity. Working together, in harmony with our natural surroundings, we can hopefully achieve a balance not only in our lives but in the resources of Earth as well!

Your Thoughts?

Bare practitioner, early Spring day!

From the lack of any blooms or foliage on the trees, it is obvious this is a day early in the Spring – perhaps even the first day of the season! From our subject’s nudity, it is apparent that the daytime outdoor temperature is moderate and probably quite comfortable.

For this particular posting, I invite each one of you to take a moment and read the following questions. Contemplate your thoughts. If you feel inspired, please use the comments section below to share your ideas with others. Remember the adage: “A picture gives us one thousand words.”

What does he see? What is he thinking? Is he happy that Spring is finally here? Has he lost something? Is he dreaming of the future? Is he recalling a moment from the past? Is he a proud bare practitioner? Does he miss his lover?

Have fun!

Naked hugs!
