Join Megan and Andy for an evening of naked drawing, socializing, and snacks! Your hosts will pose for short and long sketches, allowing you to hone your drawing (and social) skills along the way. Attendees will have an opportunity to model, though this is optional. This class is for pencil/pen sketch only. Due to space limitations, no easels or paint will be allowed. All skill levels are welcome. Please bring your own art supplies. We will have a few things, but feel free to bring non-alcoholic drinks or light snacks.

Schedule:

7:50 - doors open, clothed mingling
8:10 - doors closed, brief preamble, disrobing
8:30 - 60 minutes of live model sketching with brief breaks
9:30 - socializing, sharing snacks
10:00 - event ends, clear the space

About Andy: Andy has been a nude art model for Art Students League and School of Visual Arts for several years. He also works as a voice actor...and rumors that he occasionally records at-home auditions naked are completely unsubstantiated.

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.
