Naked Voting.

Okay…this is the moment where i need to yell…WHAT THE FUCK???!!

Yes Katy Perry and a number of other women stripped down naked and pulled off these ridiculous stunts in order to get people to vote this Tuesday.  For the Democrats of course.  While i have no problem with naked women, to be honest this was just silly.

Out of Shape Women Strip Naked to Encourage Anti-Trump Vote, Backfires Terribly.

Why would you do something so utterly ridiculous and to be honest, just primed to have most people recoil in disgust.  And those that don’t, either laugh their asses off or masturbate to the images.  I guess somewhere inside their little liberal minds they actually think posing nude in a campaign ad will either help their side win or make stars like Katy Perry relevant again.  Yes Katy will forever be known as the dumb ass who showed her tits and ass on the internet in order to get you to go vote.  Utterly ridiculous and in poor taste.  All this has shown in not the beauty of women, but the desperation of irrelevant celebrities and the Democrat Party.  Because all that T&A was not on my mind when i stepped into the voting both yesterday.

Why is it Necessary to Take Nude Photos of Oneself?

reposted from this blog: Why is it Necessary to Take Nude Photos of Oneself?

I have been wondering why I find it necessary to take skyclad photos, why anyone who is a naturist/nudist or someone who simply enjoys being nude. Why the images? Why are they posted to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, or other social media sites? Having spent way too much time wondering about this, I think I may have arrived at an answer that fits many who are like me.

Images are there to help us, to help me, get out of our heads. They become a visible proof that we are more than just feelings and thoughts.There is an honesty, or at least an attempt at honesty, expressed in these images. Risking being vulnerable enough to be honest, is not the same thing as posting images for exhibitionist purposes. The images I am talking about have nothing to do with lewdness, lust, or then tension of sexuality. Intention, it all comes down to intention. Images that are exhibitionist have a motive of obtaining sexual satisfaction or to shock. So, what is the intention?

If you take photos of yourself au naturel, why do you do so? What is your need? Why do you allow others to see these images? Why the risk? All images have a purpose and meaning. However, we rarely know what the purpose and meaning of our own images are about. There is a story, a story of at least 1,000 words for each image. More often than not, the story is yet to be discovered, as the image is more about unconscious projection than that it is about conscious intention.

As for myself, the images tell the story of my reclaiming my authority rather than having the authority projected onto others. I refuse the authority of the shadows from my childhood. I refuse the authority of a church that would tell me that my naked body is sinful. I refuse to be a victim. Of course, there are laws and a broader society within which we all find ourselves. For our own safety, we find that fine line between “in your face” confrontations and in hiding from the world and our own fears.

Read the rest at the link above.  But i have to admit I am inspired to take more nudes of myself.

Friday Footnote: Recent Ton Dou Arrest Update

ReNude Pride

Another Friday Footnote post that is being published here on ReNude Pride due to a scheduling conflict (my own fault). But then, who knew back when I was planning for this month that bare living would be so demanding? I foolishly thought that less (clothing) would simplify life. Little did I know that the opposite would be true! I should know by now that nothing in my life is ever as it should be! Besides, religiously posting these Friday Footnotes on Thursday does give everyone a true sample of what my life is all about!

I was inspired by one of my followers to look for some web comics that are about naturism.  I found a few links.  I hope you enjoy them.

A few words about why…

Finding Finneas

Let’s just get this out of the way in the beginning. I’m fat. There I said it. I. AM. FAT.  So many people have in their heads that people who enjoy being naked socially are those that are bronzed, in shape and beautiful. As far as the bronzed thing goes well, sometimes yes and sometimes no. Are there people that never miss a day in the gym involved in social nudism? Absolutely. But quite honestly, the percentage of those people are the same as you would find anywhere at any time. In addition, however, there are also MANY people who are considered the “average body” or even the body types that are outside the preconceived norm that are the body beautiful, because they are being unabashedly and honestly themselves. I use average body in quotations as that is a stereotype that we have been sold for years and years through…

Naturism and my online presence: A Positive Light?

Great article!

Naturist Fab

Recently, I decided to open up and take ownership about naturism and put my name on my social media accounts. I did this because firstly, I am not ashamed of being nude and being in forced “retirement” I don’t have the fear of repercussions from an employer.

If people happen to come across my nude photos, so be it. Naturism is not for everyone and if someone asks me about it, I will answer honestly, I love the freedom of not being encumbered by clothing.

Some might ask, but why have nude pictures of myself and if I’m an exhibitionist. Naturism is not about exhibitionism and promoting nudity in daily situations that most do while wearing clothes. Naturism isn’t sexual and if I happen to post nude pictures of myself online it’s all about the context and message of body acceptance.

Others might say, “but do you have to show…

Friday Footnote: Bare and GLBTQ Potpourri

i liked this and i decided to reblog it

ReNude Pride

There are many blogs that I regularly follow. Some are strictly bare-related and others are are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (GLBTQ) oriented. Believe it or not, there are even a few that are very similar to ReNude Pride and regularly focus on the same gender loving (gay) and bare communities simultaneously. Often, these excellent publications offer posts that are directly related to articles that have recently posted here. The purpose of this Friday Footnote feature here is to offer everyone reading here the opportunity to read the perspectives of others.
