Giving it another go

Several years ago I went to a party held by the Sydney Gay Nudist group called Sunboys. It was known by another name at the time. It was at a large private home and I didn’t know the guys well that I went with. Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy the experience. The party was skewed to a much older crowd and it felt like a large portion of them were just.. Read More

A great way to spend the day

Today I spent the day with some of my nudie mates. Five of us jumped in the car and went to a National Park to a trail that we know about. Once we were a few hundred metres into the trail we stripped off and hiked nude to a beautiful waterhole that we have been to before. We spent a couple of hours just chilling out on the rocks at..

Too much change!

There are times when life just feels like it’s trying to test you. Losing my job and being told a dating situation was over on the same day wasn’t great. Now as well as trying to find a new job and make the most of all the opportunities I have in front of me, it looks like my living situation is becoming unworkable. It’s nothing my housemate is doing or.. Read More

Dusty memories

Some of my friends are now either already at Burning Man or very much on their way. For some it’s their first time and for others it’s definitely not. It’s been four years since I last went to Burning Man and while I’m in no hurry to go back with so much of the world left to see, each year at this time I get nostalgic for the playa and.. Read More

No surprises there…

I’ve posted a few times before about how the company I work for doesn’t seem to be doing very well. Over the past few months things have been getting worse and I started to get nervous. One of my friends runs a recruitment company in the U.S. and when I asked him for advice on writing my CV he said that because I have worked here for so long (9.. Read More

Surprising results

Last week I posed the question on where people stand on photos when they are hanging out nude and I’m quite surprised by the results. Maybe I have a more exhibitionistic readership than I thought or maybe you are all just really chilled out. It’s no surprise that I only had 197 votes in the poll as I know there have been some problems with voting and commenting lately. Out.. Read More

A touch more touch

As I mentioned recently, this morning I went to a “Touch Space Workshop”. There were 18 guys and a huge variety of bodies and ages. I’m the first to admit that I looked around and was worried that there weren’t many guys at all that I was physically attracted to. Then I thought about why I was there and what it was about. It’s not about getting off with someone.. Read More

Can you imagine

On a rainy Monday in Berlin I found myself looking for things to do that didn’t involve walking in the rain. I’d expressed an interest in going to a non-gay sauna and my host suggested Vabali Spa. Two trains and a tram later I found the place and what a place it is. After going to a sauna in Cologne I knew to expect lots of nakedness from both sexes.. Read More

Authentic nudism

Berlin is a city I had fond but vague memories of from my visit 15 years ago. Last time I was here it was winter and ridiculously cold. This time, it’s summer and I had been hoping to take advantage of the liberal attitudes towards nudity. Yesterday was my first full day in Berlin and it was a great day. The day started grey and cloudy but by early afternoon.. Read More

World Naked Hiking Day!

Today (Wednesday June 21) is World Naked Hiking Day and while it’s Winter down here in Australia, in lots of the world it’s beautiful temperatures to get out there and go for a naked hike. Several people I know here would love to be out hiking but given the cold and regular day jobs, that’s not possible. Up until recently the only naked hiking I’d done was down a steep.. Read More

A perk

Iceland is an expensive place to visit. Thankfully most of the expenses of the trip have been paid well in advance. My mate and I are staying at the Kex Hostel in Reykjavik for two nights when we first get to Iceland. Part of me thinks I’m too old for a hostel but then part of me thinks it’s great to meet people and it will be a decent way.. Read More

Getting started…

This weekend is a long weekend here in Sydney and I’m house and dog sitting so it’s a great opportunity to get some life-administration done. Now that I’m an officially registered marriage celebrant I thought I’d set up a Facebook and Instagram page for the business. I won’t get any clients if there’s no way to market myself will I? Click to like my Facebook Page, Brenton Parry Celebrations or.. Read More

Near or far?

Timo Wilderness is a Finnish blogger who sadly, like lots of my favourite bloggers seems to have gone a bit quiet. Today however I saw that he’s posted a short video about a project he was asked to ┬átake on by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment in Finland. It is a part of his “Welcome to Finland” series that I’ve featured before on Aussielicious. This time Timo isn’t.. Read More

Tantalisingly close…

Two weeks. That’s it. In two weeks I will finally board a plane to fly a long and probably tedious, uncomfortable journey that will be more than justified by a destination that I’ve been wanting to see for 15 years. In 2002 I was living in London and in the Tube they had billboards advertising a deal on a three-day horse riding tour of Iceland. Unfortunately I couldn’t afford it.. Read More

Fun or “Fun”?

Last Friday night my mate hosted one of our occasional “Pants off friday” nights at his house. We have a core group of us that come along for a fun night of laughs and (several) drinks. We are always on the lookout for new guys to join in but we are often met with apprehension from guys. So much so that the host is not thinking of writing up a.. Read More
