Bugs and Bares, part 6: Agent Orange

Lalo looked down at his toes, perhaps to hide a bit of a blush. Then he raised his head and began slowly. “I want to thank you, Miranda, for introducing me to naturism all those years ago.” “Well I don’t know why,” she began. “You were a spectacularly poor naturist, weren’t you?” “I imagine thatContinue reading “Bugs and Bares, part 6: Agent Orange”

Bugs and Bares, part 5: Mysterious Marks

Lalo looked at his former teacher incredulously. “Admit? What is it you don’t want to admit?” Dr. A seemed like she was trying to answer, but her own sobbing impeded her. “It’s alright, Dr. A.,” said Nate. “Nobody was trying to make you upset.” “It’s just that…” she managed to get out, “it’s just thatContinue reading “Bugs and Bares, part 5: Mysterious Marks”

Bugs and Bares, part 4: Crunchy and Spicy

“Lalo! So good to see you! That smells delicious,” said Dr. A. “Miranda, such a nice surprise. Would you like to try some? Oh! But where are my manners? Please, go ahead and remove your clothes. There’s a rack right behind you to hang whatever you want to hang.” “Thank you,” said Dr. A, whoContinue reading “Bugs and Bares, part 4: Crunchy and Spicy”

Bugs and Bares, part 3: Super Silk

They had not been long on the highway before Nate pointed out the window. “Do you see that billboard ad? I swear that was not there this morning.” Dr. A looked at the sign. It said: SUPER SILK!  Specially designed moth-repellent clothing with luxurious feel and great price! “Well… that’s interesting. Perhaps you didn’t noticeContinue reading “Bugs and Bares, part 3: Super Silk”

Bugs and Bares, part 2: The Failed Naturist

(continued from previous post)   Nate stood still, dripping wet, waiting for Dr. A’s pronouncement. But, as often happened, she changed track. “Wait, wait, wait. Wait! First, you should probably go dry off. And go get those smelly clothes of yours and put them in the washer. You know where it is, right? You’ll seeContinue reading “Bugs and Bares, part 2: The Failed Naturist”

Bugs and Bares, part 1: Moth Attacks

(a new serial)   Nate rolled his Jeep to a halt under the shade of the palm trees in Dr. A’s yard. He checked his watch – he had rushed from the capital to Noonay Noo in a half hour. Dr. A’s door was open, and she had seen him arrive. “Hi, Nate! What’s newsContinue reading “Bugs and Bares, part 1: Moth Attacks”

Respect

I’m finding this to be a difficult post to write, and I can imagine that it might be somewhat controversial. But I believe that what I need to say here needs to be out. And I want to thank Ginger @breastsrhealthy for setting an example with her consistently helpful and respectful tone in addressing widespread ignoranceContinue reading “Respect”

A Big Step for Organized Naturism in Latin America

Last weekend, January 28-30, the sixth ELAN took place at Zipolite Beach in Oaxaca, Mexico. ELAN is an acronym in both Spanish and Portuguese for Gathering of Latin American Naturists. This is important because naturism always needs organizational support in the face of ignorance and repression, anywhere in the world, but especially in areas whereContinue reading “A Big Step for Organized Naturism in Latin America”

The Natural State

If you’re one to bare your skin to the air just about anywhere, then you better beware in The Natural State! The “shirt off your back” is what you’ll lose fast if you dare to unclasp your bra or your pants in The Natural State: a sentence, a fee – a price way too steepContinue reading “The Natural State”

Naturist Memes and Photo Captions

Savvy naturists on social media have been making naturist memes and captioned photos for some time now. There’s much that’s already been said about the way contemporary social media affect our attention span, bringing fully to life the old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. I agree with the sentiment of BareContinue reading “Naturist Memes and Photo Captions”
