À quoi penses-tu? | Modele Vivant a Quebec

LABSN Editor’s Note: I’ve been following Rolland’s blog for some time and and find it so well presented I want to share it.
It is usually written in French and I have to run the text through Bing Translator, which I’m sure missing the nuances of the poetry. But even with the literal translation I get the sense of his passion.
Rolland also has wonderful art at the top of each post and always credits the artist.
I’ve included the Bing translation at the end.
Hope you enjoy this post.

À quoi penses-tu?   À quoi penses-tu? Pour que subitement, tu t’es tu? Devant moi, tu me racontas ta journée, Pendant que je prenais plaisir à te dessiner.   Ai-je dit un mot qu&rsq…

English translation by Bing:

A masterpiece directed by Noble Roro of France
What are you thinking?

What are you thinking?
So that suddenly, you were you?
In front of me, you tell me your day,
While I was taking pleasure in drawing you.

Did I say a word you shouldn’t?
Would I have crumpled your soul in your heart?
If that’s the case, forgive me my beautiful,
Because, thanks to you, my life has become a marvel.

That you have become my model over the days,
And over time in my eyes a lovely lady,
But during our torrid nights, you became my tender Muse,
To be honest with you and a little with me, all this in me amuses me.

Will! Since we have to keep going, let’s continue!
With a few strokes of pencils and towards you my only passion,
To make a true homage to the noblest of all femininity,
Your naked body, now, forever and I swear to you for eternity.

Navigating Gender – Not Just What the Naked Body Tells Us | A Canadian Naturist

LABSN Editor’s Note: The Canadian Naturist always has some wonderful words of wisdom. I thought this was especially poignant.

“Gender is an aspect of our individuality.”  These words from Thomas Moore got me thinking about gender and my own identity. When a person is nude, gender is an obviously physical thing as this ima…

Humans (Like P!nk) Have Nipples And People Are Losing Their F*cking Minds About It

LABSN Editor’s Note: The reactions to Pink’s nipples are what we may expect from such a conservative society, but the author of this piece handles the comments with wit, sarcasm, and wisdom.

Stop trying to police women’s bodies and their clothes based on your own views of modesty and propriety. Seriously. STOP.

Why Naturist Fiction Matters – Naturist Fiction.org

LABSN Editor’s Note: Three very good writers are sharing their ideas about a writing genre they all produce. I thought I’d share one of the posts, leading you to their blog site.

Nudity in the arts has a long history, and it’s not just paintings and sculptures. Writing about nudity has also been around for centuries. To get to what we can call writing about naturism o…

LABSN Editor’s Note: Nick and Lins, a Belgian naturists couple, have a wonderful blog, Naked Wanderings, of their travels to naturists venues around the world. This post tackles some social media issues I’ve been thinking about also.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of online nudism? Especially on social media. Does it help us or will it harm us?
