Just Naked’s mission is to create nude events that look and feel like any other popular clothed event, but with just naked participants. This may already seem to be the case at a glance, but a closer look reveals important disparities. For this reason, the normalization of nudity is a priority to Just Naked. Our goal is to approach these nuanced issues with honesty, courage, and progressive action.
PLEASE do not message anyone in the group without having met them previously. If you're a guy, please be aware of this from a woman's perspective. If you're a woman, please report anyone who sends you an unwanted message and we'll take care of it ASAP.
Please note: The RSVP's on Meetup or any other platform do not reflect actual attendance. Please report anyone who sends you an unwanted message.
Just Naked's Principles:
Subjectively Naked :
For the all-gender events, men need to be fully nude and women are allowed to wear bottoms. Why? For a woman, going topless or even breastfeeding in public can be seen as a subversive or erotic display, while men enjoy much more clothes-freedom. Because nudity may present menstruating women* and trans people with technical or psychological difficulties, we allow anyone with these concerns to wear bottoms and any other gender-affirming devices (breastplates/packers/etc). *We support hygienic free-bleeding.
Cruise Control :
Cruising means looking for a date or sex (more here). You might be perceived as a cruiser if you do any of the following: - ask someone to meet outside of the event- ask about someone’s relationship status- compliment someone’s physical features- maintain a close distance during conversation- follow someone around an event (be friendly, not clingy)- stare at a person’s body during conversation There are some circumstances when the above behaviors might be appropriate at a platonic event, but this is not likely to be the case between two people who barely know each other. We suggest that you err on the side of caution if you have any doubt. If you are the recipient of unwanted attention, please inform an event coordinator and/or ask the person to stop.
Verbal Consent :
Nudity is not an invitation. At our events, you must ask permission before touching anyone with whom you are not very familiar. This includes non-sexual touch, such as a hand on the shoulder or a hug.
Much ado about boners… :
Men, if you feel yourself getting an erection, please be discrete or excuse yourself until it goes away. If you’re a man and this rule freaks you out, trust that most newcomers are able to deal with it discretely. This is the #1 question we get from beginners, and it ends up not being a big deal for most of them. Rather than banning boners (as if that were possible), we just ask that you be aware of how others might interpret an erect penis pointing at them during conversation. Anonymity :If you meet someone at one of our events, then see that person outside of the event (or find them online), do not mention anything about Just Naked. Some people need to keep their participation private and we respect that.
Ask permission before photographing or recording anyone, even if you think they are unidentifiable in the shot.
No Drugs :
While some of our events allow responsible BYOB, this will never be the featured activity. If you are visibly intoxicated, you will be asked to leave.
Please tell us if anyone makes you feel uncomfortable at our events or associated online platforms. We'll do our best to address the situation without outing you to them.
