I ❤️ Naked Walks: Our favorite places for naturist trekking (Part One)

Oh man I love this post. Nude walks are my favorite thing to do in the nude!!

The Meandering Naturist

Seems simple enough. Take off your clothes… and walk!

As it happens, neither of us have ever considered ourselves even remotely athletic. In fact, one could argue that a big part of what drew us into naturism in the first place was simply coming to terms with our own bodies. Neither of us had the talent nor the desire for championship skiing or body-builder weight-lifting, let alone the determination to train for bicycling across Europe. But a good brisk walk? We’re all in! Especially if it can be done in the buff.

And so it goes… that the main criteria for naturist places that garner our highest marks are those that offer the opportunity to move. In the best case, that means at least an hour’s walk at a brisk pace of about four miles-per-hour, which is about as fast as most people can walk before breaking into a…

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!

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…

Interview: Dean of Black Nude Taurus

ReNude Pride

It is my honor and privilege to introduce to all of you Dean “Dandy-Deen” , the author of Black Nude Taurus  blog (click title to view). He’s the “sleeping beauty” pictured in the photograph above. I met Dean this Spring and we’ve been communicating via text and email throughout our friendship. He’s a very fun guy to know and is a personable nude dude – full of energy and enthusiastic about life. The labels that Dean prefers to use to describe his serious allergy to clothing are: full-frontal, au naturel, nude, naked, bare, unclothed and clothesless. In this regard, he’s my type of man!

Erectilephobia

ReNude Pride

Erectilephobia is my own term for any man who allows his fear of possibly having an erection in public to prevent him from trying social nudity. The most unfortunate aspect of this situation is that there is an equal possibility that the same man will not have an erection in public and therefore he’s allowing this possibility to prohibit him from the camaraderie and joys of social nudity. Arousals (erections) aren’t available “on demand” so none of us are immune from this happening, but we’re realists and refuse to let that possibility stand in our way of enjoyment.

I made it into a Times article about naturism…

naturistmartin

Following the success of the article I contributed to in The Atlantic around Nudists and Social Media, I was contacted out of the blue by a reporter from The Times in London. She’d read the Atlantic article and was keen to do a follow up article.

I agreed and that same evening did an interview by telephone with Gurpreet (the reporter) it was about 20 minutes long and covered a lot of points about naturism for me and using social media as a Naturist.

The next day I received a call from the picture desk team who wanted to arrange for a photographer to visit. I arranged for them to visit on the Thursday morning. Chris, the Times photographer arrived with a host of photographic equipment and we spent a pretty surreal hour in my garden and a few shots inside of me clothed to begin with and then nude…
