Many dogs love their days. Particularly dogs who are well looked after. And they particularly enjoy frequently going naked, the best do not even wear collars....

Dína said...

Thank you Bearz. And you are right. The collar makes me feel "overdressed"

Is May 7th World Naked Gardening Day, really? If so, I'll have to remember it. Or are you just putting us on, or to be more exact, taking us off? Glorious nakedness…have you ever been to a nude beach? In the US, if they are legal at all, they are always secluded and hard to get to, and so consequently, they are beautiful, pristine stretches of beach or lakesides. Their natural scenery is spectacular.

France has lots of Naturist retreats - in fact there is one quite near to where I live. I don't think I will be going, however, because I have a horror of pendulous flesh, even when hirsute - and I am too scrawny to parade myself. (My best feature is my face - which is true of most of us.)

I think clothes can really enhance people, and a problem with modern (Caucasian) fashion is that men so often dress badly and drably in horrible jeans and pastel shirts, or else horrible knee-length "shorts", while women seem ignorant of the enhancing properties of the sari or body-wrap or kaftan...

Bring back the doublet and tabard, with particoloured leggings!
Or, on the other hand, the (synthetic, imitation) wolf-or bear-skin !

After the bold celebration of your nakedness, your first paragraph in response to my comment is far too self-conscious and pusillanimous. Enjoy the sunshine and openness. The exposure is healthier than the internet.

Even when the photo of myself and Oscar was taken - probably 15 years ago - I had long since given up my brief phase narcissistic nudity occasioned by a short run of unusually hot Irish summers in the early nineteen-eighties. I am very cold-rife (Reynaud's Condition), and most summers in coastal Ireland do not produce temperatures above 20°.

My (occasionally-shared) naturism at that time prompted my landlord to serve me notice to quit his property (invisible from any road) on grounds of "immorality". I resisted, and was taken to court, where my landlord lost his case, and I got to stay in the old, unrenovated house indefinitely, provided I did not offend my Christian landlord by displaying my private/public parts. He retaliated by refusing to do any repairs, which meant that he was not allowed to charge more than £2 a week rent. This situation has lasted 30 years, and the house is still standing, though sometimes leaking.

I would never go to a 'nudist colony' or nudist beach, not even if it were populated by beautiful people of colour (for then I would be horribly conscious of my ghastly-ghostly appearance. But I can be naked on my balcony which is surrounded by an amphitheatre of trees, above and below; and should I ever want to bathe I would not dream of wearing anything, any more than I would if I ever again had the privilege of sharing a sauna deep in the Canadian woods.

Auban,
Here in Asuncion, if people saw your picture like this one, you would be accused of committing indecent acts and probably, if you don´t have the money, thrown into the Tacumbu Penitentiary. Take care. Raúl

Well, Raúl,as you can read above, I might have been thrown out of my house if my landlord and a witness had seen me.
