How do we distinguish between porn and art? What’s the deal with the female nipple? Join us for a roundtable dinner and discussion on the issues of modern clothes-free culture. Food will be lovingly crafted by Lea and Adam, with well-rounded vegan, meat, and lactose-intolerant options available. If more than 12 people sign up, we will switch from plated and tabled dinner to buffet style seated on pillows in the main room. TV trays can be provided if anyone can't sit on the floor and eat (please let us know beforehand). This event is held at Residencia, and access information will be sent after ticket purchase. If you do not receive access instructions, please check your spam folder before emailing adam@justnaked.com.

About Adam: Adam started Just Naked with the idea that city-dwellers might be open to experiencing nudity within the confines of their rat-infested metropoles. While he believes convening with nature is still the best way to do it, he understands that some people just can’t be convinced to subject their flesh to destructive UV rays and mosquitoes. He studied jazz music before moving to NYC to model in 2013. Teaching yoga and doing massage led him to understand how profoundly disconnected many people were from their bodies. He started teaching naked yoga in 2016, and considers Just Naked as an expansion of that endeavor. His goal is to offer folks an opportunity to shed their insecurities, piece by piece, as they do their clothes at Just Naked events.

About Lea: Léa is an hand-embroidery artist. She founded Just Naked after spending a summer at a nudist camp with her husband Adam.  Before realizing her love of clothes-free living, she designed and hand-embroidered garments under the nom de plume Lele Vomi. She still loves embroidery as a craft, but is expanding her artistic capacities to include photography and watercolor.  She enjoys working with artists to create content for Just Naked, crafting an aesthetic which reflect the gentle freedom of platonic nudity.

Just Naked’s Principles

 These are the principles that guide most of our events. Event leaders are allowed some flexibility, so please read the details of each event before attending. While these guidelines are common sense for most, our goal is to calmly guide anyone for whom this information is not obvious.

 

Subjectively Naked
For our coed 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).

Cruise Control
Cruising means looking for a date or sex. 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.

 

The Erection Question
Men, if you feel yourself getting an erection, please know that this is a very NORMAL bodily function; however, we are trying to uncouple and distinguish the difference between nudity and explicit sexuality (and yes, it's possible!). We ask that you become aware of your arousal, take a moment to yourself to celebrate the fact you are human and then to please excuse yourself until your fire cools. We don't want to shame any erections, but want to be respectful to others in the group.

 

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.

 

Photos
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.

 

Reporting
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.
