Winter fashion and warmth for the at home nudist.

So yeah winter is on the way and it may not be looking good for some people.  Those of us who are at home nudists know how cold it can get in the house and worst of all how expensive it can get trying to keep the heat up enough to remain nude at home.  Well sometimes you can’t afford to keep the house at a crisp and warm 73 degrees plus all winter.  So here’s some fashion tips for all you naturists at home.

Space Heaters

You can get these person heating systems for cheap.  I’ve seen them for about 25 bucks.  I use one in the room where i have my computer and it works great.  A quick tip: close off the room where the space heater is running and it will warm up the room in less then 2 hours.

 

Footwear

In many cases I have only one part of my body that gets really cold, and its generally my feet Tread Socks, also known as hospital socks are a great way to keep your feet warm and stay trendy.

 

Night Shirts and Bathrobes

In my 20’s if you had told me that night shirts could be worn by men i would have laughed in your face.  But i used to have a number of them several years ago.  They were basically just over sized plain colored shirts and they served me well in keeping warm.  I wore them out over the years though.  But now and I have a bathrobe and I think I’ll be buying a one of those night shirts I’ve seen online.  They are great at keeping you warm and easy the slip out of, which is something I want.

 

Blankets and such

Well the cheapest and easiest way to keep warm is with a blanket, or if you insist a Snuggie.  I will say that i do have a snuggie and it works, although i struggle with the mental issue of using one of the gayest, worst products ever made in all of human history.  Blankets and snuggies are good for when you are laying down and sitting in one place.  They aren’t very good if you have to move around.  So if you wanna watch TV and keep warm, a blanket or a snuggie is where its at.

 

Keeping warm and basically as nude as possible shouldn’t be hard or expensive so i hope everyone enjoys these tips.  Keep warm and Happy Winter!

 

We are back and up and running!

So today i finally got the new webpage for Naturism for People of Color up and running!  YEAY!  Nothing can stop me now! (i hope)  Okay so the new site looks great and I even have a separate page set up for pictures and Photography!  Yes my dear blog readers I actually have a separate page for pictures and i can actually post on it as well!  With this new development i may set up a site purely for my photography.  The site is based on Weebly.  Not exactly a cool name, but it gets the job done pretty well.  But lets get to the point shall we?

The new website address is: Naturism for People of Color

A sense of loss…

I used to sit back in the house and be nude all day and all night.  Now with steady employment i no longer have the time.  Even though I don’t work seven days a week or all day, it feels like i lost something very important.  Me time.  It seems now that every time i get some time to myself there’s something to do that requires me to put on clothes.  Yard work, giving my cousin a ride, something.  I kinda feel lost at times but I’m pretty sure that I like money so I’ll keep working.  I guess there is a part of me that is still getting used to all this change since its been so long since I worked a steady job.  But I also think its because I don’t really like the job.  And it’s not just the people, or the hours.  It because i feel that I’ve really gotten nowhere.  I try not to be arrogant but a really big part of me keeps saying, “This job is for plebs.  I was doing this kind of shit when I was fifteen.  Why am i here again 23 years later?”  Even my parents who were so happy that i finally landed the job are pushing me to find something better right now.  They even gave me some book for the local community college in hopes i can get some kind of skill.  And to be honest i have looked at and noticed a forklift class for about $139 for a one day class.  That’s at least 65% of one paycheck from Hardee’s.  I don’t know if i want to spend that kind of money, even if my parents are willing to help me pay for it.

But I now am also praying and hoping that i get a call later this week for another job at another restaurant, as a dishwasher.  I’d be making $8.00 per hour with a guaranteed 40 hours a week.  Once again its another job that i worked early in my adult life and I was so happy to even be considered for the job, but now I find myself once again wondering if the job is beneath me.  I really do not want to think like that.  I want to work so i can at least say that as a man i have a decent job and can support myself, even if I am a dishwasher.  *sigh*  So do i work two jobs, one that is crummy and i don’t care too much for, and I beneath my station but I’ll actually enjoy going to work every day.  Or do i try to take some class and hope i can get a even better job in the future.  I just don’t know.  I know if i get two jobs I’ll have more money, less time to be nude, and even less time to deal with my cousins.  Which other then the money, seems like a big plus to having two jobs.  Well its time for bed.  I have to be at work at 7 AM tomorrow.  Just thinking about that makes the dishwashing job seem even more appealing.

Happenings.

Well i have to apologize.  It has been 4 months since my last post.  But if you read my last post then you know I’ve been busy, and yeah i have been through a lot.

First off, my diabetes.  Yeah i still have diabetes.  All hopes for it suddenly disappearing have been dashed.  But i have managed to keep my blood sugar under control.  Since i have contracted this condition my resistance to being cold has dropped even more.  Forcing me to wear something around the house in order to keep warm unless I crank up the heat and run up heating bills I can barely pay for, so pj’s and t-shirts are the new fashion around the house.  It sucks but I’ve gotten so used to it now I barely think about it.  It feels like I may have to give up my at-home nudist title during the winter and early spring

I just started taking Metformin about a month ago and while it hasn’t radically changed my life, its given me a bit of a buffer so i can enjoy more food now. I am still doing some injections each day.  The reason why is because my A1C is at 9.3 and it needs to be at 7.5 or 7.0.  Considering the fact that i was at 15.1 when i left the hospital 4 months ago, my endocrinologist says that its a good improvement.  I was hoping it would be around 8.0 or 7.0.  Exercising has been the major problem because of the cold, and now because of the rain.  At this rate I’ll have to start going to the mall and walking in doors to get some exercise, and that will cost me some gas.

In the family drama corner I finally had to detach myself from my cousin Quanisha and her older sister Tenika.  Maybe I’ll write about it later but they did something to piss me off so no more rides from me, and that was about two months ago.  Suffice to say i haven’t been out or had any real fun for myself since the hospital.  Other then visiting family; i just work and stay home.  Why, because my meds are so expensive and i barely have any money left.  Its been a pain, but i have to admit, being depressed and having a online game to occupy my time has made it easier.  But tonight i am going out.  Well i can only hope that life gets better from here on out.

Ultrasounds and Jockstraps.

So today i went to the Diagnostics place and got a ultrasound on my testicles.  I was wondering how this was going to be done and all.  Turns out its the same thing as women go through. The ultrasound technician was female and she gave me some instructions.  A rolled up towel underneath my scrotum and one to cover up my penis.  All i had to do was just drop my pants.  So I lay down on some bed without any pants on (i forgot to wear underwear, force of habit), put the towels in the proper positions  and then she put some gel on the ultrasound scanner and spent five minutes or more per testicle.  The technician wouldn’t give me a diagnosis or even tell me what she was seeing.  SHE instead told me that the radiologist would contact my doctor afterwards.  Well that wasn’t very helpful, after she was done I put my pants and left.

Well i decided to get the jockstraps today.  I was expecting this to be easy but it wasn’t.  I went to 7 different stores and the mall.  Took me two hours to find a jockstrap that wasn’t some overpriced male strippers g-string for 15 dollars a pair.  I went to Wal-Mart and found one pair for 5 dollars.  FIVE FUCKING DOLLARS FOR ONE PAIR!  I am not fucking kidding you.  Pissed me off but i bought three of them and i am wearing one now.  Almost feels like I’m wear a fucking g-string.  And the real problem is that underwear companies no longer make jockstraps, its all of these sports companies now like Wilson or Nike.  I actually went online and this is some of the crap i found.

Do the words ‘fuck’ and ‘no’ hold any meaning for you?  They do for me.  No way in hell I am I wearing any of that crap.  The closest thing i could find for what i wanted was this: A real normal jockstrap  and yeah its 24 dollars for one fucking pair.  My god no one actually makes jockstraps any more except intimate men’s apparel shops and sports companies!  The world is officially fucked up!  Well there is one good thing about these Wilson’s athletic supporter I’m wearing, there’s no cloth in the back so i can go take a shit without having to take these things off!  Yeay….

The Cold and the Told #3: The final post.

Well i made a deal with the textile devil.  I decided to wear some PJs or at least a long shirt.  In exchange the evil gas company will keep my bills low. Not much of a choice but i refuse to spend 100 dollars each month on a gas bill.  Considering my current health situation though it seems to be the best idea.  Almost like i was being set up to accept the inevitable much more easily.  In a few weeks i hop i can buy myself a nice long bathrobe.  That will be even better.

Well it’s over, an era of nudism is finished.

For me that is.  For at least 12 years now i have enjoyed at home nudism and going commando.  But that has come to an end.  Eight days ago i was having back pains and then the next day a strange pain in my right testicle.   Suffice to say i was worried and set up a doctors appointment a few days later.

So i went to the doctor today and he said i still had some swelling there and so he recommended 800 mg of ibuprofen to get rid of the swelling and then a ultrasound.  He also said i needed to start wearing a jockstrap.  He didn’t say for how long, but he explained to me why.

Apparently when the testicles descend from the abdomen in the womb they carry some kind of tissue with it that seals off the scrotum from the rest of the body; well he suspects that my seal ain’t working too well and some fluids might be leaking into my scrotum and causing all that pain.  I guess the jockstrap will help with that as well as the pills.

Suffice to say i was kinda in shock, and scared as fuck.  800mg, some kind of testicle condition and now i need a ultrasound.  Yeah I was kinda feeling fucked.  So i went to talk to my cousin after i left the doctor’s office.  I needed to talk to someone and she is a good listener.

So now here i sit in a pair of underwear, tomorrow i go and get  jockstrap or two, or 5 maybe.  Fuck if i know,  I’m still scared.  On Friday i go to get this ultrasound and what if it that finds something far worse?  I don’t know what to do anymore.  I’m just praying that I’m overreacting and nothing is really wrong
