Community of 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.

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.
