Hang out at Los Angeles & Palm Springs Area Events

Join the Fun! CMEN – Los Angeles holds a variety of all nude social and recreational events, including weekend pool parties, cocktail parties, potlucks and card nights for gay naturist men in the Greater Los Angeles & Palm Springs Area throughout the year.

CMEN is an organization for gay and bisexual men who enjoy nude social and recreational activities. As naturists we enjoy being nude, preferably outdoors, for social and recreational activities. We enjoy the freedom of being without clothes whenever possible and practical. CMEN sponsors all nude naturist social and recreational activities which promote male bonding, friendship, and acceptance.

CMEN Los Angeles events are private events for CMEN Los Angeles members in good standing. Membership and attendance at CMEN activities and events is limited to men at least 21 years old. Most events are held at private homes, and typically range in size from 10 to 100 members.

For More Information:

CMEN sponsors all nude naturist social and recreational activities for members which promote male bonding, friendship, and acceptance of our natural bodies. This website provides information about being invited to an upcoming event and becoming a member.

Naturism encourages body acceptance, self-respect, respect for others and respect for the environment. Being nude makes one more open and honest about himself, and more accepting of others. If clothes make the man, then nudity makes everyone more equal. Gay naturists experience a camaraderie unequaled in any clothed situation.
