A caring fella who has been a naturist for 50 of my 69yrs! Wife has severe stroke 12 yrs ago and I look after her 24/7. Live clothes-free at home and love to get out in our lovely countryside in my skin! Also like motor sports, photography and DIY, 2 of which I can do wearing just a smile!

Naturism and Images – It’s All About the Intention – Part 1

Thoughts on showing oneself naked

Sky Clad Therapist - The Naked Psyche

Genital free “safe” image. Obviously nude but not threatening.

There is a continual controversy on Twitter and on other social media sites that purport to deal with naturism, that argue about images that are tagged as naturist where and when the genitals are seen. I know I waver back and forth between allowing full frontal images of myself and “safe” photos where body positioning or judicious cropping takes care of the possibility of offending. But when I do this, I become the problem. At that moment, I stop being authentic and hope that somehow I can be in the collective, well at least a small corner of the collective.

See me? I have a Penis.

Many of the images are blatantly not about naturism, but rather about individuals desperately posting images of themselves with the focus fully on their genitals – “see me, I have a penis … am I…

Bottoms-Up! September, 2017

And so say all of us!

ReNude Pride

Today is the last day of September, 2017. The month began with those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere enjoying our Summer and ends with us now beginning Autumn. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, the joys of Spring are now upon you. Have fun in your period of seasons-in-the-sun! Wherever you live, the reason I selected the lead photo for this post (aside from the subject’s buttocks) is the fact that he’s partially in the shade and partially in the sunlight. To me, it reflects the seasonal transition.

A naked ramble into the woods…

Truly naturist!

naturistmartin

I dusted off my very rarely used Nordic Walking poles and decided to take advantage of the nice late September sunshine and take a little walk towards Harewood Forest on the outskirts of Andover, Hampshire UK.

The Nordic Walking poles actually enable me to walk further than I would normally be able to do because they support my weight and also help to straighten my spine as I walk. The added benefit of an upper body walkout too.

Within 15 minutes I had walked the pathway out of town, under the A303 dual carriageway and into peaceful countryside, I can’t walk too far because I need to judge the distance to walk back, so I decided to turn off the path and into some fields. It was deserted with no one around so I thought it was safe to take off all my clothes and enjoy a walk naked.

I…

My 3rd real experience barefoot | Barefoot Scott

Truly Naturist, barefoot,bare all.

Scott's Barefoot Adventures

My third real experience at barefoot living was when I was visiting my local Naturist campgrounds called La Pommerie I told myself that if I wanted to truly feel free, I was gonna leave everything at the gate, including footwear. And I did, I left the car with nothing but a smile upon my face and I did not regret it.

1982321_10153238426409724_4141014642954646427_nMy feet were still sensitive at this stage and still learning & teaching my feet how to deal with the random surfaces around the campgrounds so I was basically teaching myself how to walk all over again. I loved the sensations of random feelings upon my feet, the grass, gravel, mud even the river. I remember one moment where there was a bridge in the forest and I took it upon myself to take the road less traveled on and walk adjacent to the bridge in the creek that…

Nude Is Not Lewd

Made me think about my attitude, good article!

ReNude Pride

Often, we see many professional athletes, who are paid enormous and outrageous amounts of money get physical with one another to reward a job-well-done. In both the National Basketball Association (NBA) and in the National Football Association (NFL), countless team-mates give each other a pat or a slap on their buttocks in a congratulatory gesture of goodwill and friendship. Even coaches do the same as a show of support to their players and a way of offering encouragement. No one complains of bodily harm, excessive violence, sexual harassment or indecency.

Prince of Denmark, Naked in New York

This is just wonderful in many ways!

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society

IMG_6346Last summer, we produced an all-female, all-nude staging of Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest, outdoors in Central Park, and it was a huge success: hundreds of people came to see the play in person, and millions more — literally — read or heard about it in media coverage ranging from NBC News and Salon to every major newspaper in the U.K. (They love it when Americans experiment with Shakespeare, apparently.)

img_3506One recurring theme in the comment section of online coverage, however, went like this: “They could only do this because it was women — try it with naked men and they’d get arrested!” Well, we all know a challenge when we hear one. So our Tempest directors sat down to plan an all-nude, all-male production of Hamlet. 

IMG_6354That production was staged this summer, first in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park and then, just this past week, in Central Park, at the…

Has There Ever Been A Worse UK Government Than This?

I totally agree,what a shambolic useless twerps we have as our “government”

Peter Reynolds

I am a member of the Conservative Party – just.  My annual subscription is due and I feel physically sick at the prospect of doing anything that is supportive of the appalling collection of third and fourth rates that presently sit round the cabinet table.

The Conservative Party has Lost Its Way. We Need To Get Back To Being Tories.

We need to re-focus on our fundamental principles: individual liberty, individual responsibility, small government, free markets, evidence-based policy and a benevolent, responsible, one-nation approach.

Let’s face it, we’ve had a privileged toff, little more than a ponce on the nation, who from his position of wealth found it very easy to impose austerity on people with whom he was totally out-of-touch. Throughout his political career he vacillated and dithered on policy because he has no principles except self-advancement.  Now we have some fake Tory, an authoritarian bureaucrat with big government…
