The majority of men have a fear of being accepted in a nude setting due to self-esteem or confidence issues. Some may think that they may be too heavy, too thin, too hairy, too old, or simply not “large” enough. However, this is not what naturism is about. Naturism is the acceptance of the nude body in all of its shapes, appearances, forms, and sizes. As gay, bisexual, and gay-friendly men, we come together for social interaction and camaraderie while enjoying the intense freedom from shedding clothes. Ironically, as the clothes come off and men relate to each other, self-esteem strengthens, confidence levels increase, and self-acceptance grows.
