It's November.  It's National Sleep Comfort Month and Thanksgiving.

So many events...so little time...

Please check out the events page for upcoming events and the explanation of two of the events below. 

A Manoh Man believes that life is short and should be played NAKED

 Manoh men participation is restricted to males over the age of 18.  If you browse this site further, you acknowledge that you have achieved the legal status of adult and that you are embarking on your 18th trip around the sun.   You are welcome to visit the other sections for more information, if you are not yet 18, Aloha and Mahalo and come back to visit when you are. 

Hawaii Manoh Man

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. 

Manoh Man Membership

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 throughout the year.   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.  That will place you in our database and on our mailing list if you choose that option.  We keep a firm grip on our male members.  The membership list is never given to anyone.  

Nudity

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 Manoh men to become comfortable with their own nudity in a social environment and for all Manoh Men to enjoy the comfort of nudity in a social setting.  Each scheduled event is hosted by a Manoh Man 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.  

Who Attends

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).  

Our Manoh's

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.  

Messages from Manoh Man

 

Ali'i 

In ancient Hawaiian society, ali'i was a hereditary chiefly or noble rank who governed with divine power called mana.  The ali'i were the highest class ranking above priests and commoners.  Most common translations are "Chief" and "High Chief."  Ali'i Nui were ruling chiefs.  Nui means grand, great or supreme.  Manoh is trying to reinstate the concept of Ali'i within Manoh; however, Bob insists on being Ali'i Nui and has given only the Ali'i rank to the webmaster and to the host of Ali'i, Manoh John.  The webmaster is willing to take your Hawaiian offering of $10 on the Payment page.  You can make any other offering to Manoh John at the event on December 6. 

Makahiki 

The Makahiki season was the ancient Hawaiian New Year Festival in honor of the god Lono of the Hawaiian religion.  It was a holiday covering 4 consecutive lunar months--Octoberish though Februaryrish.  It was equivalent to modern Thanksgiving and Christmas traditions.  War during those 4-5 months was forbidden.  The people stopped work, made offerings to ali'i and then spent their time having a good time.  

Celebrate the Aloha tradition the Manoh way by attending Makahiki on December 20th.  You can make your offering on the Payment's page.   No wars are allowed.

Gay Marriage 

Gay marriage and marijuana were legalized in Oregon on the same day.  Leviticus 20:13--"If a man lays with another man he should be stoned."  We've just been interpreting it wrong all these years.

Free Advertising 

We want to offer up a new Manoh benefit for both the givers and receivers of Manoh services.  Check out the "Help" page.  We are offering free advertising for members that offer legitimate services here in Hawaii so that members might first go to a Manoh member for that service.  More information will come out in the December Manoh memo.  If you want us to include your business, please email us.  

Weeknight Events 

We've been talking about experimenting with times and dates.  New Year's Eve is a Wednesday night this year.  Can't get more mid week than that.  

November Theme 

November is national Sleep Comfort Month as well as Thanksgiving.  Please combine those two events into one fulfilled month.

Privacy Policies 

Please visit the Event Facts page for an update on our privacy policies.  You can retain membership without being on a mailing list if you are concerned about your privacy.  An email to us at Manoh with the request will change the emails that you get.  Just specify that you would prefer "Private" membership rather than "General" membership.
