ManoH is testing the waters to see if there would be an interest in an event in Portland Oregon. We know there are many members in the Pacific Northwest and we know there are visitors in the Pacific Northwest in the summer months. We'll ask the question in our June 1 ManoH Memo before we schedule anything but if you have an interest in attending such an event, let us know by emailing us in the section above.
For a listing of our upcoming events, please go to the Events page and scroll to the bottom of the page for the month by month schedule. Current events will be individually described by date of event at the top of the page. To join ManoH, go to the Membership page and complete the form.
The next event is June 13th and will fill up quickly.

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 "Temporary" 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 appearing less than fully clothed in front of others, while others are uncomfortable 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 disrobe 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).
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.
