Registration is closed
For exact location, please check the room schedule in the Center lobby when you arrive. We expect to be in a wheelchair accessible room.

Instead of our usual nude social, this event will feature a discussion led by MAN member Shungaboy about the results of his survey about body acceptance.

The discussion will begin at approximately 6:30 and last less than an hour. There will be time to socialize before and after.

Are you shy about your body? Do you want to come to a Males Au Naturel event, but are afraid to be naked with other men?

This special orientation program is for you! (Experienced M.A.N. members, please come with your advice and suggestions!)

  • Find out what you have in common with the 313 men who responded to Shungaboy’s body-acceptance survey. 
  • We’ll have an open discussion about body issues. Share your thoughts or just listen!

    Take this short quiz and find out your nudist level. The results will be presented at the MAN orientation on June 13. Your written answers will be added to Shungaboy’s research. You’ll also receive a PDF report on Shungaboy’s survey results by email absolutely free. USE THIS LINK:


    Dress code: This is a great starter for first timers, or any guys curious about nude male social activities. Take it all off with us, or if you're not quite ready for that, keep your underwear on. It's up to you.

    This orientation is strictly non-sexual. Naked hugs or incidental genital contact are allowed, but please be sensitive to the feelings of the person you want to touch.

    Q: What if I get aroused?
    A: That's not a problem as long as you don't do something to make it happen. If you stay engaged in conversation, it won't happen so much.

    Shungaboy is an artist, a nudist, and the founder of Men's Naked Drawing Group (mensnakeddrawing.com). He has been helping men overcome their body issues through naked figure drawing sessions, discussion groups and one-on-one coaching since 2014. He welcomes all men in a kind, supportive, and non-judgmental way. Contact Shungaboy: shungaboy@gmail.com

    Registration is optional, so we can get an idea of how many to expect. You can show up at any time.
    Please bring a towel to sit on if you plan to sit. The chairs are metal and sitting on a towel is more comfortable. Also, we want to make sure chairs stay clean.

    You're welcome to bring a snack or refreshment, but that's optional.  Center rules prevent the serving or consumption of alcohol.
    A small donation is welcomed but not required. The first $100 we raise covers our expenses, including the modest room rental. The rest goes to our savings account and helps us avoid charging members a renewal fee.
