"Nudity is our ideal state, our pure state, our natural state, our default state. Clothing is always a deviation from the default and is, therefore, a compromise and an aberration.."

"Body shame originates in our minds with our thoughts and perceptions. Neither our religion nor our culture makes us ashamed of our bodies, only our belief that we should be ashamed. Shame comes from our own thoughts which we have the power to change. If we perceive no shame then there is none. No one can make you feel ashamed without your permission."

Shower Thought

From my personal journal:

I don’t have to tell my gentle readers how much I enjoy taking a shower. I’m sure many don’t really appreciate their time in the shower; they only see it as a necessity for the utilitarian task of getting clean. They probably don’t take the time to enjoy the sensation of the […]

Picturing Myself Naked

This morning, while perusing my Twitter feed, I happened upon a link to Why I Don’t Agree With Many Naturist Groups by Lim, a Taiwanese naturist whose blog I referenced previously in Nude Hiking in the Alps. While on his site, I perused many other articles he’s posted. One of the things he’s adamant about […]

Are Nudism & Naturism Natural?

I have read Nudism Is Unnatural and Naturism Is Natural by Timothy Ach in his Catholic in the 21st Century blog, and I have to disagree with him on several points he has made. He seems to be making assumptions that are primarily based upon Biblical scripture and Catholic Catechism. In previous posts from his […]

I Don't Know How I Do It

One Thing I’ve Wondered About Nudists

A non-nudist blogger asked, “How do men who are nudists avoid getting erections?” That seems to be a fair question. I’ve read other articles about nudism that he’s written and he genuinely seems to want to understand why people practice nudism.

One thing I’ve wondered about nudists:

How do men who are […]

International Read Naked Day

Yet another day set aside to do something naked. Reading, like so many other activities, is something that I prefer to do whilst in my natural state, yet due to infringements from the textile world, I do not not have enough opportunities to pursue it in in that way. Today was no exception. Life goes […]

Changing priorities

My ideas about naturism as well as my participation have gone through many transitions and evolutions over the past decade. Although I probably fit into the demographic profile of the average  AANR or TNS member, it’s not a comfortable fit. It’s been at least five or six years since I’ve been to a nudist park […]

My nude agenda (or lack thereof)

There is no right way or wrong way in spite of what various groups try to convince us. If there is a right way, it is decided on a personal level of one person. Any attempt to control others in terms of wearing or not wearing clothing is the real issue. Simple nudity that is […]

Nude Bucket List (kinda short)

Yesterday I read a couple of blog posts talking abouts things the authors would like to do in the nude before they die. I’ve probably made such a list at some point but I’ve probably forgotten most of what was on the list. Priorities have changed. To be able to freely live a nude lifestyle […]

Default & Natural State

Nudity is our default and natural state. We all entered the world in that state and we felt no shame or embarrassment as we saw our first light and took our first breath. As we grew older we learned how to feel shame and embarrassment about our bodies from our parents, our teaches, our churches, […]

Penultimate Day, 2013

Another year has passed and I don’t really have anything to report since a year ago. I had tentatively planned on attending the Northcoast Naturists hike at Chautauqua Gorge and the Skinny Dip Record attempt at Cedar Trails but things came up. I don’t know if I’m losing interest in social nudism or in traveling […]
