I’ll be honest. I was scared to do this post. The fear has nothing to do with shame mind you, but other personal things. But here i am. Sorry for the quality of the pics, but i wasn’t the camera man at the time.
Yeah…I’m starting to feel old, and fat. I guess these pictures kind of reflect my mood at the moment. The bad thing about cold weather is it makes it harder to go for a walk and try to improve my health. Thankfully though a space heater in my computer room helps me drastically reduce how much heating gas i use, so my gas bill has been low this month so far.
As a nudist i sometimes i find myself asking, “Do i need to lose weight and get healthy for my sake or the sake of being nude. Being nude all the time you get used to your own body, but you also have to look at yourself and if you are lucky you don’t become judgmental of yourself to the point where you feel disgusted at your own looks. Some days i feel that way. Especially when it comes to my own nudism. When i mention that i sit at home all day in the nude to other blacks, i either get some restrained laughter, or judgmental looks from them, especially the older blacks. But i am well on my way to being that older black person. I’m 36 yrs old now. Maybe i need to find a life and a nudist retreat.
Either way i just stepped outside in the buff to toss out some food to the local stray cats and i can tell its only 60 degrees out. Maybe I’ll go for a walk and get out of this house for a bit.
I’ve always wanted to wonder around outside in the nude. I’ve managed to sneak outside a few times but never really enjoyed the moment. Most of the time i would site on the steps of my back door and smoke a cigarette. And yeah those steps are uncomfortable to sit on.
So yeah, this year was going to be the year. I was going to stand outside and get the job done this summer. At first the usual excuses started, but then something terrible happened. The tree in my back yard had to be totally cut down due to fears of the old dead thing falling on the house in a storm. A very large branch had hit the house more then a year ago and luckily cause no damage, but no chances could be taken this year and so it was cut down.
The old tree was the only thing that obstructed the view to my back doorstep. My back yard neighbor is a 80+ yr old woman who I’ve only met 3 times since I moved here years ago. And yet i am now paranoid that she’ll see me if i step outside in the nude, even if it’s 2 AM. And to be honest her back window is more the 30 yards away. *sigh* OK maybe one last try. I don’t even know any more.
A interesting article, which is why i am reblogging it.

Imagine…It’s a Saturday December morning I’m headed to LaGuardia to catch my flight and I miss it, the consequences of not getting enough sleep. I wait for the next flight to Maine. Finally, I arrive and a car service comes to take me to a cozy B&B where I am going to have my first nudist experience. It’s about a 40 minute drive from the airport and the driver, a nice man from Somalia, pulls into the drive way and out comes my beautiful friend Jasmine (yes, we have the same name) and Richard, just as naked as they day they were born.
The driver then says, “Oh my God, is that real!”

I was having a conversation recently with another African American nudist about the the virtue of African Americans getting tanned in the sun. Conversation went something like this.
THEM: I am dark enough already.
ME: Don’t you want a full even color?
THEM: Don’t the dark areas just get darker?
ME: Good point
Many white nudists relish the opportunity to get a deep dark all over tan at the nude beach or resort. But what is the draw for African Americans. Many of us don’t really go very far into the water since often African Americans, especially urban dwellers have not learned how to swim. Nor do we do many water activities that involve getting covered by water, (black women often try to keep their hair intact). Now I know these are generalizations, I am proof of that, I can swim, I lay out in the sun. But they are…

When i saw this article on the All Nudist blog i was taken aback by it. The article, Single Male Nudists – Still a Problem made me wonder are people at naturist retreats and resorts still that prudish and backwards. Are the people there still that uptight and worried about single men. While i read the article and agree that there are men who are there to look at the ladies and try to get a date. I don’t think its a epidemic but the comments to the article almost seem to relate a feeling that many people think there is a epidemic of rude, crude, single males showing up at family nudist resorts. I also have to say this as a single male. If there are single ladies there then what is the problem?? As long as said single male isn’t harassing married women or any women in general i don’t see what’s wrong with trying to get a date.
Now as for me this article brought home something i don’t like to remember too well. Back when i was in my twenties i found the naturist retreat in Chesnee, SC, my home state. I was there for only 10 minutes and the owners, a white couple, were quite friendly and welcoming. While i was still clothed though i could feel the stares and disdain from the few whites that were there. While i am not racist, my daddy didn’t raise no fool either. I know that males generally in the age range of 40 to 60, which is the range for most nudists these days, are from the same generation as my dad. And what i was concerned about was a bunch of hostile, older white men, who were worried that i was some hung, black stallion that would woo their wives and daughters away with my ample crotch size.
For the record I’m somewhat below average from what I’ve seen of other black males, but you’d think no one would care about that now in 2012. That scenario still worries me though, and this article doesn’t help much in that regard. I’m even more wary now about going to a resort then ever before. Well i don’t have much else to say on the matter for now.
But the idea of creating a resort for single males sounds inviting i feel that its ultimately silly and makes men feel as if we’re nothing more then herded cattle who need to be contained lest our libidos make us wander.

Oh well…holler back when ya can. I won’t be holding my breath. I’m a naturist. Or a nudist if you want to get technical, or simple as some would say. But i cannot find any other black nudists myself. I’ve checked the net and looked at a number of sites with pictures and guess what? No blacks! I can just see what would happen if i walked up to a naturist resort and asked to join. They would shit, because they’ve never met a black naturist. If anyone wants to dispute this with me then they can, but i think i am right on this.
Ahhhh…yes. The second most evil thing on Earth as far as some women are concerned. I remember a black friend of mine who was interested in nudism refused to do so after she remembered her stretch marks. I decided to make this post after seeing this picture and noticing the stretch marks.
I don’t have a opinion on stretch marks. I actually tried to formulate one and i couldn’t. They just don’t seem to matter to me. Maybe it’s because I’m male and stretch marks aren’t really a concern as a part of my good looks. Although i actually do have stretch marks as well. Thinking about that i decided as an act of encouragement for others I’d post pictures of my own stretch marks. Get out your hankies people…
You may not be able to see my stretch marks very well because of the light and mine are kind of faded…
But they are there in all their glory, so don’t feel bad. We all have them.
