Update your desktop for the new year

Images of public nudityJanuary is traditionally a time of new beginnings — new resolutions, new tax planning, new hopes for a better year. So why not some spiffy new images to liven up your computer's background? Yes, that's right: It's time for more of Nakedism's own special brand of naked desktop wallpaper.

This time we bring you three variations on the theme of public nudity. The first celebrates the brazen exhibitionist who stands naked in broad daylight in a busy downtown setting, visible to the passing crowd. The others portray a more tentative exploration of public nudity. In another, our naked man is testing his own bravery or exploring the novelty of being naked where most are clothed. Still another might depict a more frightening (but no less erotic) possibility of public nudity in which the exposed man is now victim, having lost his clothes to a bet or naked dare. Or perhaps someone stripped him and abandoned him, forcing him to desperately find shelter where he won't be caught.

Whether these scenarios interest you or whether you just like seeing a naked man on your computer or tablet screen now and then, check out the latest downloadable images in Nakedism's wallpaper collection. Then click the link for your preferred size and use your browser's options to save it to your system or apply it directly to your screen background.

O horny night

While Shepherds watched their cocks by nightEvery December, Christians around the globe recount the story of poor lonely shepherds who received the fantastic visitation of an angelic messenger heralding the arrival of their messiah. The angel was shortly joined by an entire choir of heavenly beings.

The story is amazing on the face of it, of course. But it raises some seldom asked questions as well. That shepherds should stay out at night suggests that the weather was not particularly cold. And if they weren't cold, and if they were only in the company of their fellow men in the dark of night, one wonders how important it would have been to be covered by all those robes that religious art always depicts? Men will be men, and it's likely that those doing little more than watching sheep might need a little diversion, even if it were at their own hands.

Then there is the visionary experience itself. Have you ever noticed how many paintings and sculptures of religious ecstasy show people with their o-face on? These artists may have tapped into a greater truth, a profound connection between religious euphoria and sexual release.

It was with those thoughts in mind that photographer Adam Andrew Caldwell and I decided to explore the truly ecstatic nature of this mythic tale. In this view, the shepherds were not only in touch with the divine creation of their own bodies, but were brought to an even higher state of physical exultation by the erotic manifestation of a sensuous angel.

To see the results of this photographic meditation, strip down, head on over to the Nakedism photo collection, and invoke the gallery we call Come Ye Shepherds. And while you do, feel free to engage in a devotional ritual of your own.

The spooner the better

Naked spooningAt Nakedism, we accept the common nudist belief that almost any life activity is more enjoyable when naked. But some naked doings are more fun than others. Take cuddling for instance. Is there anything more delicious than the skin-on-skin frisson of personal body contact and intertwined limbs with a companion than cuddling? And how much more intense that simple pleasure becomes when done free of the normally required clothing. It's one of life's most amazing but free and simple pleasures.

Given this wonderful fact, we decided one afternoon to make a short video about the simple pleasures of naked cuddling. In a world where nudity in film is almost always about hardcore sex, this seemed to be a good change of pace.

Of course, you know what they say about the best laid plans. When two naked friends being touching and holding, other ideas can arise. And when those two friends are naked... Well, the cuddling can be quite intense.

If you think you might agree, check out Cuddle Buddies, the newest video in Nakedism's Sexy Time Theatre. And maybe you'll be inspired to join in, perhaps by wrapping your hands around a favorite part and cuddling yourself to complete satisfaction.

The first man

Adam and Andrew AdamFor many years, as Halloween approached, I wanted to show up at a party as Adam, the legendary first man, whom Genesis tells us lived naked with his wife until, tempted by a serpent, they partook of the fruit of knowledge, making them ashamed of their nakedness and causing them to cover their genitals with leaves. Considering the other repressive parts of the Bible, I find the story of people living in blissful, shame-free nudity to be a wonderful image. And of course it's the perfect Halloween role for any nudist or exhibitionist.

To be truly effective as a costume, I knew I had to be as naked as legally possible. Flesh-colored undies or any sort of wrap-around for a leaf loin cloth spoiled that image to my way of thinking. Instead, my idea was to wear a sock over my genitals, secured by a silicon cock ring, and then attach a leaf to that. Finding just the right snake at a costume store also inspired me to overcome my own body shame and fulfill this long-held dream.

Because Adam is depicted as clean shaven, I eliminated my beard and shaved anywhere that might seem too suggestive. Then, at the appointed hour, best friend and Nakedism photographer-in-residence Andrew Caldwell (shown here in his costume as a ghoulish "Eternal Footman") joined me as we headed out for an evening of Halloween fun

In light of the
many repressive parts
of the Bible, the story of
people living in blissful,
shame-free nudity is
a wonderful
image.

Before that night, I had been concerned that I might not measure up to expectations for such an audacious costume. Thankfully, I quickly realized that my fears been baseless. I had a great time mingling with friends and meeting new ones. I even got a proposition or two and some quick makeout sessions with a few cute guys.

Naturally some rude and/or drunk people had to grab at the costume rather than simply ask how it was attached. But it was designed to be secure, and held up very well. Although, nervously, I did adjust it several times to make sure it was in place.

Of course, in the actual story, Adam didn't wear anything all until after eating the fruit. So before the party, Andrew and I met at his studio for a full-frontal consideration of Adam's natural state. Members can check out Andrew's photographic work from both occasions by visiting our latest photo set, Adam's bone, in Nakedism's photo gallery. Then drop us a line or add a comment below and tell us about the most naked Halloween costume you ever dared to try!

Alley of the balls

Naked in the alleyWhat urban location could be more fabled than the alley, that grimy slice of space between buildings, home to trash containers, drug deals, illicit sex, rape, rats, cats, and more?

For reasons like this, our mothers warned us to avoid alleys. In those dark slivers of urban decay, what might happen? A simple shortcut could suddenly turn into a mugging, with your attacker taking your watch, your money, your credit cards. But what if the bad guys don't stop there? Maybe they want to be sure you don't follow them. Maybe they order you to strip, and you suddenly find your assailants running away with every stitch of fabric you had on.

Or maybe your naked alley fantasy is a little less severe. You strip down for some quick playtime with a new friend only to discover some hobo has made off with the clothes you left in a neat little pile. What do you do now?

These are just a couple of the ideas I wanted to explore when Nakedism photographer in residence Andrew Adam Caldwell and I made our way to an inner city alley near a gay sex club for a midday photo shoot. Fortunately for me (the naked one), the alley was closed off to the public. But it was still a bit unnerving to stand by the exit door and hear the bustling footsteps of city dwellers walking by just inches from my nude body.

At one point I did peek out and invited a friendly face in. That gentleman wanted to do more than just look at me naked, however. But since he declined to be photographed, I declined to let him use my body. Fortunately, he left peacefully, choosing not to take advantage of my complete lack of protective apparel.

You, however, don't need to be so polite. You are free to ravish every inch of my bare cock, balls, and more with your eyes in this month's gallery, Alley Cock, now available in the Nakedism photo department. You'll see me helpless, naked, even barefoot.

Go ahead. Enjoy a little rape fantasy. I won't tell.

Riding bare

Naked cyclists gather on Puget SoundBy now you've probably heard of the World Naked Bike ride, the annual event in which people in cities around the globe strip naked and ride in groups to raise awareness about oil dependence, body pride, and more. If you need a refresher course, check out the Nakedism blog post on the subject from a couple of years ago, Naked Riding 'Round the World.

"Bare as you dare" is the rule at these events, and more than once I have dropped trou in broad daylight to join the other cyclists for this, one of the most public naked events of the year. Although WNBR is not normally considered a naked dare, it certainly takes daring to be so naked in public, riding through and by crowds of clothed people. And no doubt some people have joined the ride just on a dare from friends.

You can see my participation in this event in the 2012 gallery of photos called Naked for a Cause. But this month we add video to that narrative. Although balls out naked, I remained behind the camera this time, recording many moments of Seattle's 2012 ride from my handlebar-mounted camera. If you're curious, feel free to check out Bicycles Built for Nudes, now playing in our Naked Dare Theater.

Coming out of the clothes closet

Buff exhibitionistMeet Nakedism's newest discovery Patrick David. Patrick comes to us from Canada, where he's been exploring his nakedist tendencies. "As an exhibitionist and nudist, I find any chance to show it off exciting," he told us. "Although I've always known I was an exhibitionist (and nudist), it wasn't always easy to explore in a country with more winter than anything else."

"But when the opportunity presented itself, I did what was possible to show it all," Patrick continues. "At pools I would wear speedos and roll down the waist band and tuck up the legs virtually turning it into a thong. When my buddies and I would go camping, I'd be nude the minute we got there until it was time to go home. And now as a retired guy I can afford the time to visit the nude beach south of the city at my leisure.

"But my real passion is public nudity. After retirement I had time on my hands and decided to get into competitive bodybuilding. Although you are only 'nearly nude' on stage, it's still a great feeling to show it off. It feeds my need to be naked in as much as you can in public.

“The ultimate chance to be nude in public was yet to come. Turns out a good friend became the model coordinator for a local life drawing group. So he thought a competitive bodybuilder would make a good model — assuming I would be comfortable nude in front of people. Little did he know how much I had been looking for the opportunity to take my nudism to a new level!

"I've perfected that craft and now get a lot of calls to work as a nude model. It doesn't get much better!"

Nakedism's photo set of Patrick, now on display in the Nakedism gallery, include many of the poses he uses in my posing sessions. He's also working on a set of poses with two male models, which will take things to a new level. "That's something I'm excited to explore," he grins.

"My ultimate nude fantasy would be to be featured in a documentary on the life of a nude model," Patrick muses. "Can gay porn be far behind? I'd definitely be up for that."

We think that's a great idea and wish Patrick all the best in a sexy life without clothes.
