NAKEDMAN Terms and Conditions

What kinds of men attend ?

The men who attend our events come from all walks of life. Often they are looking for new experiences, they are wanting to explore themselves and others and learn new ways of being in the world.

Our events attract a huge spectrum of people with a broad range of ages, body types, backgrounds and sexual identity. All men are welcome to all non-specific gatherings, no matter your age body type, background or sexuality.  We welcome ALL MEN (over 18); trans, cis, queer, gay, bi and same sex attracted. Our events are professionally facilitated or coordinated to ensure they are safe, fun and respectful spaces.


Are there any prerequisites to participate?

Anyone over 18 can participate in our workshops and retreats. However due to the nature of our work you may be required to massage and touch participants for long periods of time, usually on the floor and/or massage tables. Therefore a general level of health and fitness is required. You can discuss this before attending. If you have any current skin conditions, allergies to oils or topical transmittable conditions, please discuss these in advance.


How do you deal with boundary issues?

Our intention during gatherings is to support you in finding and exploring your boundaries as well as developing your agreements around consent. Your ability to say ‘Yes’, ‘No’ or ‘Maybe’ and to express your desires and needs shows up an important aspect of your Self. It can be quite healing to consciously recognise one’s boundaries and to show them.

Only then can others begin to recognise your boundaries and to respect them.

As well as your own boundaries, learning how to meet another’s boundary and the possible emotions of rejection or excitement that can emerge from this are also important aspects to explore.

There will be opportunities to talk with facilitators one on one should you need support.


What about nudity?

Each workshop will state clearly if it is clothing optional or a naked event.

We live in a body shaming culture that often interrupts our longing for contact and sensuality, with a fear of judgment and getting hurt. Our attempt is to create a normalising and humanising atmosphere that can help you with fears you might have around being naked.


Do I get to choose the partners I want to work with for exercises?

Nman attempts to create a safe and nurturing community that moves away from the usual ideals of attraction and visual bias. This is so that every person can receive loving touch regardless of body type, age or colour. If you know you have specific preferences in the partners you are grouped with, we recommend that you bring someone with you, who you would like to work with.

When we habitually choose to connect with people purely through a lens of attraction, we miss out on opportunities to try different things with different people. When we step out of our comfort zones we feel challenged, we experience something new in ourselves, we grow and feel alive.

Our events are a practice space to experiment with new people. We therefore give people the choice of partners and we frequently and playfully assign random partners, which keeps things interesting, fun and respectful.

Ultimately exercise partners are there to practice with and have an experience with you; that experience might be mind blowing, mediocre or anything in-between. Essentially, it is about growth experiences you have with yourself and also about learning skills that you can use with other partners of your choice in the real world.


Relationships: can I come by myself or should I bring a friend or a partner to your events?

You can participate in our gatherings by yourself as an individual or while being in a relationship or with your partner or partners.

It can be a great experience to attend with your partner. Supported by the group dynamics, the exercises and touch sessions, relationships can feel revived and enriched. If you want to work exclusively with your partner this can be arranged.

On the other hand, the presence of your partner might also limit or inhibit your process. This is why men sometimes consciously choose to attend on their own. No matter if on your own or with someone else, our groups are an opportunity to meet other men in a very special context, potentially developing intimate bonds and friendships. 


Do people have sex ?

Our events are sex positive without being predominantly focused on sex. We work with the whole body; erotic, sensual, sexual, intimate, spiritual, relational, emotional and our minds. The degree of intimacy will depend on the type of  gathering, your personal boundaries and your definitions of what sex is.

Each event will ask for specific agreements around touch based on boundaries, consent and hygiene. The majority of our events are external touch only, no body part is to enter another persons body. 

The camps are social community events for people to meet, attend workshops and socialise.  That said, we are very sex positive and, outside of organised workshops, people are encouraged to have consenting sex with others if they choose and as they see appropriate. We ask you to be thoughtful and considerate of others in this area.


Can I get a refund? 

All Sales are Final. No refunds, cancellations or exchanges will be issued by NAKEDMAN. However, you are welcome to organise your own private exchange of tickets. You must advise us of the name and email address of the new recipient and they must bring photo ID. There is an admin charge for name change.


Credit Card Details

Any purchases with a credit card will show up with NM on the statement.



How are these different to Workshops?

Groups are co-ordinated not facilitated; they are not professionally run, unlike our workshops and retreats. They are run as specific interest groups to practice and meet like minded men. There is a small cost to attend the community groups (from $10 – $40, depending on the group) to cover venue, equipment use, cleaning, tea, coffee, refreshments etc. You will need to purchase an on-line ticket in advance or on the night, subject to availability. No cash will be taken..

Groups offer a diverse selection of regular monthly groups, some of which will be both clothed and naked.


How many attend?

There can be anything from 10-20 men in a workshop, depending on venue size and type of workshop.

Can I spend nights at home during a workshop?

Workshops generally run during the day or evenings and you are therefore expected to find you own accommodation.

What do I need to bring?

Bring 2 towels or a towel and sarong. 

Please ensure you are freshly showered and not wearing strong smelling deodorant or aftershave. 

Do not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol including poppers in groups, workshops and retreats.

Why have age targeted workshops?

We at NAKEDMAN have expanded our workshops to include spaces that are for men who are aged 40 and under. We have found it increasingly difficult to attract and retain younger men into our workshops. It is our intention to bring younger men into our workshops so we can teach the skills needed to participate in our broader community of workshops, retreats and festivals that are open for all men. We understand that for some people these workshops may be experienced as ageist and discriminatory. In our view and from our experience of running events for many years, we see these workshops as in the long term, building and strengthening bridges into our broader events. We do not run age specific retreats or camps.



How many attend?

There can be anything from 10-20 men on a residential retreat.


What are the sleeping arrangements on retreat?

All rooms are shared and some have ensuite. You can choose the type of accommodation when booking. When attending a retreat it s always advisable to bring earplugs and eye masks for a comfortable night sleep. If you know you are a snorer please tell us in advance.

What else do I need to know about retreats?

On retreat everything is done for you, so you can just focus on yourself and your process. Food is vegetarian and we can cater for gluten or dairy free if you tell us in advance. We cannot however cater for specific food likes and dislikes, but we endeavour to create wholesome and delicious meals.

No alcohol or drugs are to be used whilst on retreat so that you can be focused and clear in your interactions with other participants.

Please be advised that this is not a detox program and stopping use of dependent drugs or alcohol use can be dangerous and should be discussed with your GP before attending a retreat.

Retreats are an opportunity for you to step out of your usual lives and experience yourself and your world differently.



Are Camps Clothing Optional or Naked?

To allow everyone to feel comfortable and not ‘perved’ on our camps are naked. Getting naked may sound a bit weird or scary, but that only lasts a moment and you soon don’t think about it because everybody else is naked. Being naked frees us from labels, social class and stereotypes. It is a state of mind and body where we can discover and enjoy a new sense of freedom.

You can take your time to settle in when you first arrive and the friendly organisers will support you if you are nervous. You will soon feel welcomed by all.

Be the community you want to create. We strive for the NAKEDMAN community to be free of judgement where everyone is made to feel welcome. Please discard your judgement with your clothes and help us create our friendly, safe and relaxed naked community.

It is of course OK to wear clothing as necessary for protection against extreme heat or cold.

Do I have to stay? Can I come for the day?

The fun of NAKEDMAN is in creating a community of men of me over the four days by staying on site for as long as possible. We strongly encourage you to give it a go! However if you want to come and go or just come for a day that’s fine as well, as long as it’s between the hours of 8am and 10pm. We are not offering separate day tickets so you can purchase the festival entry ticket and come and go as you please.

There is a variety of accommodation available: camping, powered site, cabins and Glamping.

Is Photography allowed?

No photography is allowed except by our official photographer who won’t photograph you if advised. All photographs are also veted privately by attendees before anything is published. Even if a photo is published you can ask to be removed from it at any time.

We ask that you do not use mobile phones anywhere on the site except within your own accommodation. Please respect people’s privacy and their perception of privacy.

Can I come on my own?

Absolutely! People come on their own, with partners and in groups. if you don’t know anyone don’t worry, just let us know at check in and and the friendly crew will look after you.

We also have a friendly table  where there will always be someone new to meet and talk to.
