newTumbl
« on: March 11, 2019, 01:15:40 PM »
I discovered a few days ago that in response to the disappearance of nudity on Tumblr’s sites, a new microblogging network called newTumbl was created.
I jumped at the opportunity to do a blog focused on naked geocaching by taking back my images taken over the past few years. I will complete it over time.

Sigh. It seems to me as if this new service will operate on the plan that non-sexual nudity and sexually explicit images will be treated in the same way. The reason I think that is when I looked at your new site, I got a message "This blog has a rating of X and publishes some content that you are not permitted to view without logging in". Back in Tumblr's early days, I had some respect for it as accepting all kinds of content on the same basis--total freedom, no restrictions on who could place anything or see anything. But then the restrictions started arriving, and of course they didn't do any favors for nudity. And why should they, when naturism is so tiny and the market for erotica is so huge?

What I'm saying is that I won't be satisfied with any site which naturists use, unless nudity is governed by the least restrictive of that site's rules. If they require everyone to log in or prove their identity, then that's fine, because that's equality. But if only some pages require a login (as pornography might, for instance) then I think it's unacceptable for non-sexual nudity to be treated that way. But other people may see it differently; I'm making a personal stand here, not telling anyone else to do the same.

I do have a naturist page of my own, though I'm always going to update it "real soon now". It doesn't cost me anything, and it's available to anyone who can get on the Interrnet.

Geocaching Nu

I have found that nude photos are not welcome on the Geocaching site.  Nude Geocaching is good.

In the end, this network didn't suit me. Much too sex-oriented. I transferred it to another hosting provider in France. But my texts are always in French and English.

I'm not surprised at all that Newtumblr didn't work out for you. There seems to be an infinite demand for sexual material, whether it reaches the level of pornography or not, and anything that we'd accept as genuine naturist content is just lost in that seething ocean. People complain about Facebook, but I think Facebook is at least partly doing things right: by banning nudity, they're keeping the porn out. We know that there's nudity that isn't porn, but it's a tiny fraction. I can't imagine that any commercial company would consider it worthwhile to sort through the postings containing nudity, just to find the few items that aren't pornographic. Apart from the time involved, the people who do the work would probably demand hardship pay.

I have noticed that "nudist" web sites have very few women posting compared to men nudists.  However, on sites like old Tumblr or now NewTumblrm, Reddit, and many amateur "porn" sites there is a massive and ongoing parade of women posting sexual pictures of themselves. 

Old Tumblr used to have lots and lots of naked women in sexual poses.  When Tumblr banned sexual nudity many of the women move to newTumblr or somewhere else.  But they still don't post on this site, or many other "nudist" sites.  On MeWe nudist pages i subscribe to its almost all men posting with only very occasional women.

I really don't know why that is.  I'm sure there is some deep psychological thing going on that is probably not PC to talk about.  I don't know why, but I see what I see, and I see many thousand women posting on "self porn" sites while men post on nudist sites.

Bob, TANGOTI.

I seriously question whether many, or any, of the women on porn sites are really women. Maybe there are a few giving the boys what they want to see, but I wouldn't know. What I have seen on a number of naturist sites is users who grab a picture of a pretty girl from the internet somewhere, and use it for an avatar that establishes them as female. Somehow you never see a "woman" of mature years, only young ones--that tells you something. When I see a new one, I wonder "What kind of a show will this guy be giving us?" There's no point in arguing about individuals though, when nobody can prove anything. But has anyone read the site run by "Sunnyday"? There's a long-running performance for you.

In general I think real women don't see naturist sites as very friendly, and expect to be bombarded with frightening and obscene private messages. It's a very unfortunate underside of naturism online. I hate the idea that anyone feels excluded, but at least when we have an all-male group, we have the expectation that nobody will abuse anyone else.

Now don't make me say "What did you find when you looked it up on Google?"

SunnyDay! Dang! I remember SunnyDAy from when I first got online access. I remember reading it, liking it. It was some sort of a college student growing into being a nudist. It went on that they got married. I lost track about that time. I got suspicious that it was a male, but it was done so well.
So, I went to the website and I see that it is still going. She does yearly updates and there is a new forum that has several contributors. Still kicking! It has been nearly 20 years.

Maybe a female needs to impersonate a guy online, to avoid hassles?

So which of us here is claiming to be a middle-aged man while actually being a gorgeous babe? Could be me! Could be you!

All of this time, I've actually been DF. That guy in the pictures, he's okay. He is just concerned that if I came across as a woman, I'd be flirting back and forth. Gorgeous babe, eh?  ;D

So, where did you get that avatar pic John P.? The only usable nude pictures to steal on the internet all seem to be of women?

Anybody else want to come out of the internet nude transgender closet? :-X

Well, you never can tell what gender or what someone is really like when all you've got to go on is some text on a screen!
Hurrah for the internet.  You can be who you want to be.  Hopefully most of those that purport to be someone who they are not are doing it for benign reasons with harmless effect.  Of course there will be those that commit fraud or pretend to be someone they aren't to solicit some unfair advantage or immoral or criminal intent. 


But it's entirely usual these days! Think of the millions of kids that adopt some sort of Avatar on online gaming or simply give a pseudonymous name for the purposes of gaming.  Think of the millions of facebook accounts that have their most glamorous ever picture as their cover photo or who hide behind a childhood picture of themselves or who have a completely fictitious image for their facebook account.  The internet has offered people unprecedented and unrivaled opportunity to hide or falsify their identity for whatever reason and I bet the number that do it for a negative reason are far outnumbered by those that do it for benign or even positive reasons.
And then there's us!  We hide behind name tags for instance Nuduke, Eyesup, Bob Knows*, JohnP, Blue Train or Safebare - to protect our true identity in risky circumstances such as joining a naturist forum website.  The facts that we have been doing it for so long and that many of us have met others, doesn't change that - we like our FRN handles!  The risk unfortunately remains of being discovered as a naturist by those in our community that are prejudiced against that proclivity, that can inflict negative outcomes or consequences. So we choose discretion.  And nothing wrong with that.
Whilst my identity as Nuduke is actually that of real me (I am indeed called John !), the Nuduke identity was adopted for those reasons of discretion.  But I have been Nuduke for at least a decade now and am very attached to the naturist me!  However much real world John and FRN forum Nuduke are one and the same, there is still some duality and somehow Nuduke is much more a free spirit and more true to himself than real John who is burdened with the cares, chores and responsibility of non naturist life.  I like to be Nuduke because when I am, I can, for a short, precious time cast off the boring routine, humdrum John by casting off his clothes to release his spirit into the wonderfully stimulating and uplifting bourne of nature - even when Nuduke is in John's back garden, mowing the lawn or doing something naked, somehow that naked man is just a bit different from his clothed friend.


Just for the record, I am not to the best of my knowledge a schizophrenic with a split personality!  These things are of the mind and spirit and long may they continue and long may Nuduke flourish in his task of enlivening, refreshing and lightening dear old drudge John's weary existence.


John....er Nuduke...Er..John

….Oh dear...who am I???

*Bob doesn't in fact hide his identity, as I am sure he will be quick to point out - but he still has several of them, Bob Knows and Greenbare being but two.

Well, my name isn't really BlueTrain; it's really Blue Train Rover. But I expect you have all figured that out by now. A gold star to anyone who knows where that came from. It should be easy for you Europeans, even more so for the English.

Anyway, I use that identity everywhere I post, except where I'm required to use my real name. Unfortunately, my personality, insofar as I have one, is the same everywhere. But the odd thing is, how different the various forums and whatnot can be, even when the subject is the same. What is even more unfortunate, though, is that nothing is forever and sometimes some very good forums have disappeared. No more electrons chasing back and forth. Usually, it is because the originator or otherwise manager (whatever they might be called) calls it quits and that's the end of it. I haven't the foggiest notion of how these things work. How they get started, where they are hosted, if that's the word, and for that matter, even how one finds out about them. I don't even recall how I stumbled across this place.

My real first name is Kenneth, by the way, but keep it under your hat. I've never told anyone else. My last name is unpronounceable, if I go by what I hear.

Since everyone is baring themselves, I guess I should come clean too.
I have used the Safebare handle since the UBFree days.  It's a conjunction of my profession and passion. I have grown find of it over the years. I tend to keep the monikers separate to differentiate between my textile and natural worlds.
There has been a blurring between the two in recent times where members of one, become active in the other. I would like this to continue, but there are those that would never be comfortable in both. That's on them, not me.
Anyway, I appreciate the acceptance and dialog shared on this forum. I feel free to express the real me, whomever that may be at any given time.
Truly,
