Nude events are social happenings where the participants are naked or in varying states of undress. There are a great variety of nude events and naked gatherings of people.
The nude and naked events discussed here are all non-sexual in nature. True nudist or naturist events do not allow any overt public sexual activities of any kind.
It you are thinking of attending a “nudist” party or naked event, we urge you to ask questions or seek information before you attend. Some nude events may have a sexual vibe or ambiguous rules on sexual behavior. So if you’re looking for a real naturist scene, it’s important to find out what to expect, especially if it will be your first time with a specific club or group.
All nudist or naturist parties are naked, but not all naked parties are nudist / naturist events.
The following articles and blogs will cover all kinds of nudist, naturist and nude events from public happenings like the World Naked Bike Ride to private indoor parties held by nudist groups.
Below are blogs, stories, reviews and recaps of past and future nude events:

Nudism Behavior Etiquette and Guide For Men On How To Avoid Being Labeled A Nudist Creep Nudism Behavior Etiquette – Last year, I published a blog about gender and harassment issues in naturism. As a continuation of this topic, I thought we should delve further into nudist behavioral guidelines and how not to be “creepy” in naturist or social nude settings. Can We Define The Term “Creepy”?
