A Fashion Idea for Naturist Men.

So you can call this a funny or satirical if you want, and it kinda is.  But i would also like people to seriously consider this idea.

I was thinking about Naturist fashion for men, and this idea came to me specifically for married men:

Penis rings!  I have to admit i thought it was funny at first but i discovered that in ancient times some cultures actually had men wearing these things.  Now yes i know there is a gay connotation to these things but i was thinking this.  Straight married men can wear one at the base of the shaft as is shown in picture 1 or right below the glans as in picture 2.  You could have them made exactly like a wedding ring.  And add one ring for each decade you have been married to your lovely wife.  You know the more i think of it, I think female Naturists would love this idea for their husbands.  You ladies could go out and buy your hubby one of these rings and even have it engraved in some cute or funny way.  Make sure he wears it to the Naturist resort.  It can be a great conversation starter, a reminder to your husband, lest he have a roaming heart, and heck it’ll act like a warning device for all those women out there looking to take your man.

Now since i’m not married I’ll let you married folks figure out the rest on this, but i think this is a great idea.  A pity i can’t make any money off of it.

 

A picture of a thousand words about being topless.

1491320788304

A person once said a picture is worth a thousand words.  And he was right, it is.  But this picture is supposed to help support the argument for women being topless in public in Sweden.  This is the same nation that fucking bends over backwards to accommodate the Muslim refugees that are swarming the country.  And with the number of rapes, and murders, tripling in the country due to Muslim refugees, why in God’s Holy Name would you want to push for topless equality at a time like this?  Do you want to give the Muslim rapefugees a easier way to target who they can rape?  Priorities here people of Sweden.  Get them, and then get them in order.

Now the next thing i have to say about this picture is how off putting the two people in the picture.  The both of them look very androgynous and like hipsters.  Why not use two older people like a hairy chested male and a average looking female?  Why does the picture use two young and somewhat ugly looking, androgynous hipsters.  When i first saw this picture i looked at the male and my first thought was, “Why do they have a flat chested woman and not so flat chested woman in this picture?  It makes no sense.”  In other words the androgyny of the male completely throws the picture off and obscures the message.  Sadly enough the Northern Europeans tendency to want to be SJW and PC destroys their own message in this case.

And so to get to the final point about this one must remember that the Topless movement does not support naturism .  It is a feminist movement that only supports WOMEN BEING ALLOWED BY LAW TO BE TOPLESS IN PUBLIC THE SAME AS MEN.   While we as naturist can support the Topless movement, do not expect the same Topless movement to come to our aid.  Remember most of the Topless movement is populated by young feminist, liberal types who flit from one social justice topic to the next with no care for the wreckage they leave behind and many of them are so body shy they’d never go totally nude in public, let alone at a nudist resort or beach.  So i say why bother supporting them unless it truly benefits us.  These same women would be the first to protest public nudity on the basis that it may trigger a transsexual or some body shy person.  After all these are the same people who think a naked, flaccid penis is some form psychological and physical aggression.  So these people will never be okay with the law allowing men to walk around naked because penises trigger them.  But some of them may be okay with women walking around nude because female body privilege and “muh patriarchy oppression” and all.

Well thats my two cents on this topic.

Nude Hike: Nantahala National Forest

On Tuesday of this week i went on my first Naturist hike with a group. Nantahala National Forest was where we decided to do a 10 mile hike and we started around 11 A.M.. I thought it would be a piece of cake for me but in less then a mile i was so winded and tired that I had to stop. NO ONE TOLD ME WE’D BE HIKING UP A FREAKING MOUNTAIN!!! Suffice to say, i elected to turn back so the others could continue their hike in peace and at the pace they had set.  I was truly embarrassed but i knew that i couldn’t keep up with the others who were all seasoned hikers.

After about 20 minutes of rest my pride and determination got to me and i decided to continue on my own at my pace. I surprisingly made it 2 more miles before i had to turn back. I could have gone on much further but i knew that if i didn’t turn back at that point i might miss meeting up with the group when they came back down from the mountain. So i turned back, deciding that I would take pictures on the way.

The pictures truly don’t do justice to the area.  It is very beautiful and peaceful.  My trip down the mountain was quite enjoyable as the wind blew and i could feel the cool wind on my skin.  I was nude going up the mountain and going all the way back down to the river where we first started and it felt great.

I actually squatted in the river for a few minutes to clean my rear end off because after sitting on the trail times my butt crack had leaves and dirt all over it.  I was not going to put back on my shorts without a quick wash up.  As soon as i had finished putting on my shorts I heard someone behind, a family of four out to take pictures on the trail.  I was glad i had my clothes back on at this point.  Even though there is no federal statue or ordinance about being nude on Federal land, we had decided to be respectful and try to remain clothed near the entrance to the trail so as not to upset any families.

After I rested for a few minutes i decided to walk some more to keep myself entertained so i decided to follow the trail to a scenic waterfall called Laurel Falls.  I figured the family i had seen earlier had went that way so i decided to stay clothed.

Laurel Falls was a beautiful scene, even though i had to walk a mile to get to it.  I also caught up with the family i had seen earlier and talked with them for a bit.  After a few pictures we all walked back to the entrance to the trail and they left.

After the walk to the falls i was exhausted, hot, and kinda miserable so i sat down near the road and rested for almost a hour before once more i decided to do something with what i felt would be the last hour before the group returned and we left.  So i decided to check out the camp site i had heard one of the guys mention.  As you can see from the pictures above it was a nice, kind of isolated spot so I sat down and disrobed and spent the last hour naked before the guys returned.

When everyone came back we decided to drink a beer and check out the river a bit.  The beer tasted pretty good and we ended up laughing, joking and taking pictures of the river and each other.

After the fun and games we returned to the hotel, showered, and went to eat at a Mexican restaurant.  After that we sat around the hotel room naked and shot the shit for a few hours.  With one of the guys taking a few pictures of me sitting smiling.  He used my camera of course.

So around 12 A.M. we all went to our rooms and crashed for the night, saying our good byes that night because i knew i was going home in the morning.  I went with two of the guys to Hardee’s for breakfast the next morning and then I headed home.

 

 

 

Nude in the Woods.

So on Friday i finally decided to do it.  I went to the wooded area that I have been walking for the past few days and get nude!

I was very nervous at first, mainly because the usual small crowd of guys were there and they were making jokes about me taking pictures with my camera.  But as i left them and walked a for a good bit, my nervousness faded as i realized they wouldn’t walk as far as i was going to.  So i soon found my spot and i disrobed.

I had brought the camera with me to photograph my first time in the nude outdoors.  Until this moment i had only been nude outside in the back yard in the middle of the night, or to dump trash in the garbage can at the end of my driveway in the front yard.  Never before have i been nude in such a public area.

The sun felt great on my skin and so did the slight breeze that blew in the woods.  Although i was nude only for a few minutes per shot it was a gratifying experience none the less.

I truly wanted to be completely nude and walk around, but i had a camera, a tripod, and a mp3 player to carry so i knew i wouldn’t be able to walk around totally nude and carry all of those things in a area i was totally new to so i stayed clothed as i would move through the trail.  I would only disrobe for the pictures.

I had to keep on my shoes for this last set of photos due to prickly gumballs and other hazards, but i enjoyed myself none the less.  The sun and the freedom felt great, but i was still kinda nervous at times.  After i took all the pictures i wanted i decided to head back mainly because i wanted to come back the next day.

I guess I will go back tomorrow and I’ll disrobe and walk the trail itself in the nude for a while.  No camera or much else when i go this time.  But I’ll have to figure out how to carry my keys, mp3 player, and cell phone with me.  Heck!  Come to think of it, how will i carry my clothes once i take them off?  Okay this may present a challenge of grand proportions after all.  Either way though i am going to get nude and outdoors as often as possible now.  I enjoyed just the few minutes too much and now i may be hooked.

Dare to be nude.

There is a small wooded trail where i could walk in the nude if i wished in my hometown.  I have to admit when i went there to walk for my health i was tempted to do so.  Now other people do walk the trial but they are all gay men simply cruising for quick sex so i know they wouldn’t mind.  But one has to wonder if one should try to enjoy nudity out in the open with such people hanging around.  I am not afraid of being raped or having pictures taken.  But i cannot help but feel uncomfortable in such a environment.  I spoke with two guys at the trail and told them i was a nudist and they didn’t even flinch.  One was a black male and it was nice to meet someone black who didn’t seem too off put by the fact that i was a nudist.

I have to admit i feel like a coward though.  A place i can finally be in the nude and the first thing i do is chicken out.  Well maybe if i went in deeper into the trail it would be fine.  I may just do that next time i go walking out there.  But what do you guys think?  Give me some feedback here.

Losing control of my image, 7 lessons from 2015

This issue of losing control of the images you post online is something that nearly every one of us in the nudist persuasion is going to have to deal with.  I’ve been online since online came to exist and I can tell you that anytime you post a picture of yourself in the nude then you can expect the picture to be downloaded, saved and maybe spread around.

A good example.  A group of pictures that have been spread around for years about a incestuous family who took pictures together.  But you look at the pictures themselves and it tells a different story.  The pictures are of a naturist family who agreed to pose in the nude together showing themselves as a family.  Nothing erotic at all.  The pictures where basically comparisons in size and facial structure.  Showing how much the son looks like his father and his mother combined.  And yet this collection of pictures is literally on numerous sites tagged as incest.

I’ve seen numerous photos from naturist sites placed on obvious porn sites tagged as anything from lesbian to incest.  Some sites are just up front with the whole deal and say they took the pictures from the web and are now displaying them for your viewing pleasure.  Or they claim that real amateurs sent in the pictures.

In the end this is not to discourage we nudists from posting our positive lifestyle on the Internet.  In fact we need to do so, so we can show how positive Naturism is as a whole.  If nothing else this reblog is just a bit of education for those of us who are online as naturists.  So we can understand what we are getting into before we click that button that posts a picture of us on the web.

walking with freedom

At the end of 2013 I first wrote about losing control of my image as being one of the hazards of participation in nude events in public. It was a little tongue in cheek as I hardly have an image to lose control of, but it did raise some serious issues as well.

I am revisiting the subject again looking back on 2015, a year when in retrospect I think I could have done rather more in this direction. After all, one naked walk, one naked bike ride and one naked visit to an art exhibition could seem a bit of a damp squib, but I am aware that for many this could be considered the height of (mis)adventure.

Thinking of a specific photographic image, control has two aspects, control of what is captured, and control of who gets to see it. Clothed or unclothed, if you are in a…
