Events and Hosting
Typically, ManoH will have at least one event each month. We have had as many as 4 events in a month. It all depends on who would like to host a ManoH event.
If you want to host, just go to the Host page and fill out the form. We'll let you know if we can work it out or not and set a date.
See the weird calendar on the Photo page for an update of this week's Manoh version of weird holidays.
Frequently Asked Questions?
Why don't I receive information about the location of the event sooner.
As Manoh gets larger, so does the group of party crashers. We try to give you approximate location information 3 days prior to the event. If you have a legitimate need to know the location before then, you can contact us direct. The longer notice we give you means that the information is circulating around Honolulu where to go for a nude event. A member might give a friend his confirmation notice in error or for that matter on purpose and the friend will just show up. We now provide the "approved" guest list to our member host as well as the ManoH board members who are in attendance at each of the events. If we get non approved attending guests, they will be asked to leave or pay up.
ALL ABOUT ManoH
A ManoH man believes that life is short and should be played NAKED
The name ManoH is an acronym for "Males au natural of Hawaii."
ManoH is a gay nudist group designed for men around the world who come to Hawaii (and for those who live here) who would like to enjoy the freedom of nudity. It provides a venue to enjoy each other's company and interests while nude. Where better to enjoy that but the privacy of a ManoH event in the beautiful state of Hawaii.
The male nudist group is over 30 years old and is still active and growing. Visitors are welcome to join permanently or simply register for one of the scheduled events as a "Visitor" member. The cost of membership is free but there is a charge for each event making it simpler for our bookkeeper, the budgeting process and our visitors to Hawaii. The event coordinator, bookkeeper and other helpers all do this for free. To become a ManoH member, simply register on the 'Membership' page. We keep a firm grip on our male members. The membership list is never given to anyone.
Wearing of clothing is exclusively a human characteristic. The amount of clothes depends on functional considerations, such as a need for warmth or protection from weather, as well as social considerations and laws. In some circumstances, a minimum amount of clothing or none at all may be considered socially acceptable, while in others much more clothing is expected. In ManoH the requirement is NO clothing. Period.
People, as individuals and in groups, have varying attitudes towards their own nudity and the nudity of others. Some are relaxed about nudity in front of others, while others are uncomfortable, shy or inhibited. Many are uncomfortable or inhibited when others can see their sexual arousal and others may be aroused by it.
People are nude in a variety of situations, and whether they are prepared to undress in front of others depends on the social context in which the issue arises. Some people adopt nudism as a life style. Some people take part in non-sexual public nude events. Outdoor nude recreation can take place in private areas. Some states have legalized nudity in some of their parks (clothing optional). Oahu has NO legal nude beach but there are some locations where nudity is somewhat ignored.
Why ManoH in Hawaii
Nude beaches are limited in Hawaii and nudity in public is not legal. Hawaii ManoH men want somewhere to go to play naked. ManoH is a way for new men to become comfortable with their own nudity in a social environment and for all men to enjoy the comfort of nudity in a social setting. Each scheduled event is hosted by a ManoH member and the type of party offered is up to the host. Most of the events tend to be cocktail parties but ManoH will consider football parties, beach parties, catamaran sails, or movie nights as other possible events.
All adult ages, all body types, all ethnicities, all professions, visitors, and locals come to the various events. You choose which events you would like to go to. You can be a bear, clean-cut, daddy, geek, jock, otter, rugged, twink, bottom, top, versatile, dominant, passive, son, smooth, hairy, cut or un-cut, religious, atheist, vegetarian, Democrat, Republican, Independent or any other political affiliation. All that we ask is that you be a member in good standing (no pun intended). What that means is that you are not an idiot; you're not on the FBI 10 most wanted list; you haven't annoyed a ManoH board member; or you're not a stalker to mention a few things. ManoH has the final say in deciding membership status.
ManoH comes in many sizes. We have ManoH's, Mini ManoH's, Mega ManoH's, Metro ManoH's and Monster ManoH's sort of like many of our ManoH members. Some of the event sizes might be limited for that reason. Events can fill up quickly for the smaller mini events. The host determines the size restrictions--again in numbers attending and not related to any anatomical preferences. Although, if a member wanted to throw a special party we can always come up with a new category.
