Hang out at Los Angeles & Palm Springs Area Weekend Events

Pool parties are a great time to be with friendsJoin the Fun! California Men Enjoying Naturism – Los Angeles holds a variety of all nude social and recreational events, including pool parties, cocktail parties, and potlucks for gay naturist men in the Greater Los Angeles & Palm Springs Area throughout the year.

California Men Enjoying Naturism (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.

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.

CMEN Los Angeles events are private events for CMEN Los Angeles members in good standing and their invited guests. 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 and invited guests. Events are listed on the the CMEN Los Angeles Events page. Reservations are required for all CMEN Los Angeles events, reservations must be made in advance via the CMEN Los Angeles Reservation page.

Note to Members:  Due to the current Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak all local CMEN LA and LANG events have been cancelled through June for the safety of our members. Please follow Los Angeles County “Stay Safe at Home” guidelines and practice social distancing to avoid spreading this virus. We look forward to getting together again soon.
