Nude Clubs


The past several years have seen an explosion of men’s naturist clubs at the local level. Ranging from a couple of dozen guys that get together naked for potluck dinners or movie nights to hundreds that gather nude for huge pool or dance parties, there are now over 200 groups on all continents except Antarctica (for good reason — brrr!). Of those, approximately one-third are formally affiliated with GNI.

While we hope to see you at one of our signature events – The GNI Gathering every August in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, NakedFest in early summer in northern Maryland, or on our various nude tropical adventures each year, GNI also strongly encourages you to participate in the activities of the nearest club where you live or travel. It’s a great way to keep that special GNI feeling going year-round!

If you are looking for nude activities in the area where you live or plan to travel, please contact the local club(s) directly, and let them know that GNI referred you!

Note: In the listings and on the map, clubs marked with their own logo or a gay naturist emblem
(Gay naturist emblem) are affiliated with GNI.

Naked Yoga


Starting around the turn of this century with just a handful of groups, Naked Yoga has burgeoned into a major trend as practitioners realize the added benefits of yoga unencumbered by clothes. While there are some mixed-gender classes and a few for women only, the overwhelming majority of Naked Yoga classes are for men. Yoga has long been a staple of the program for GNI’s annual men’s nude Gathering.

GNI supports this wonderful movement year-round by maintaining an online listing with contact information for Naked Yoga classes open to men throughout the world. It is updated in real time as GNI learns of changes.

Although GNI’s listing includes many physical addresses, some groups prefer not to publish their meeting location for reasons of privacy or security. In either case, when planning to attend a class, make contact beforehand to verify the group is still meeting at the published time, has enough space, and welcomes your participation. And please let them know that GNI referred you!

As an additional resource, GNI member Bob S., founder / organizer of Naked Yoga for Men in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA), maintains a worldwide Yahoo! Group, Naked Yoga for Men, with extensive links. You may subscribe (requires a Yahoo! ID, which is free) to access any secured features. It also has an archive of messages, some of which could be from others in your area that might wish to organize or participate in a class where none now exists.


* If you are an instructor or coordinator of Naked Yoga classes in which men are welcome, and would like to list your yoga group or submit an update to a current listing, contact GNI’s Club and Naturist Outreach Liaison.

With their penchant for relaxed, casual living, it’s no surprise that many “bears” enjoy the naturist lifestyle. There is a strong following of bears at NakedFest and The GNI Gathering and other events, and several local men’s naturist clubs have a particular outreach to bears.

If you are looking to hang out nude with bears in the area where you live or plan to travel, please contact the local club directly, and let them know that GNI referred you!
Note: Clubs marked with their own logo or a gay naturist emblem (Gay naturist emblem) are affiliated with GNI.

The Body Electric School

The Body Electric School workshops can help you experience your potential as a fully-integrated, loving, and self-aware man through personal growth exercises, touch, massage, conscious breath, and honoring the wisdom of the body.  Come experience deeper, conscious connection with men in a safe, healthy, and playful setting.  Most men find this work to be rejuvenating, uplifting, and healing… and a lot of fun!

Body Electric hosts workshops and retreats for men across the USA, Canada and Australia, and many communities offer events and ways to connect beyond the workshop itself.  Cities offering BE events for men this year include: Albuquerque, Atlanta, Austin, Boston Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Montreal, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Sydney, Tulsa, and Washington, DC.  Workshops are also offered at Wildwood Retreat near Guerneville, CA and Easton Mountain Retreat, near Greenwich, NY.
