This is Rachel: a body intelligence explorer, connector, gymnastics teacher, and creative. Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Rachel moved to NYC to pursue a creative job in welding and woodworking. As she adjusted to life in NYC, her path began to create itself and its direction shifted from welding and woodworking to the art of human connection and wellness. She believes that human connection is activism, activism that is actively planting seeds towards a more fulfilling, vulnerable, permission giving, and expansive (inwards and outwards) culture.

Just Naked’s Principles - PVC

Participation: We ask that you are fully engaged at our events. Yes, getting naked is an experience in and of itself, but please arrive with curiosity and the energy to participate in the theme of the event. Another facet of participation is arriving with a clear mind. While responsible BYOB is sometimes allowed, visible intoxication is not.

Vulnerability: This Principle arose from the need to clarify the subjectivity of being naked. A woman going topless publicly, however legal it might be, is likely to arouse a negative response from most crowds. For this reason, we accept that a woman’s edge of vulnerability might mean keeping their bottoms on at our events. For men, we invite you to discover your edge of vulnerability in other ways. Perhaps you cross your arms during conversation? Uncross your arms to feel what that’s like. Maybe you’re afraid of looking stupid when you dance? Attend our Movement and Connection event to explore that fear and move beyond it. If you do not identify with the male or female archetypes, or are transitioning gender, please do whatever suits your needs. Our Builders are knowledgeable about these experiences and eager to help you. 

Cohesion: For Just Naked, Cohesion means connecting with others in the spirit of openness and respect. When we do this collectively, we create social unity. In this unity, we are most effective at normalizing naked within the local and global communities.  Respect means treating others how they would like to be treated. This may be difficult to intuit, so we ask that you familiarize yourself with our full FAQ.

PS - But.. But.. Erections?!: 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.
