Live in Your World but Play in ours
ManoH is an all male NUDIST mostly gay organization. You're going to see men's junk on this site so if that is offensive or if you are under the age of 21, Aloha and mahalo for visiting our website. If you are 21 or over, feel free to tour the site and then join us in one of our events.
The name ManoH is an acronym for "Male 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. We provide a venue to enjoy each other's company and interests while nude. We are not in this for profit. Most proceeds are given to hosts to reimburse their expenses. The small remainder is used to maintain operations such and the website and invitations. Manoh staff members are volunteers and are not paid.
ManoH events come 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.
Review our "Rules" page for information about attending a ManoH event.
Manoh, our male nudist group was created in 1981 and is still active and growing today. It is run completely by volunteers.
Privacy is expected and respected in ManoH. We keep a firm grip on our male members, the member list is never given to anyone. We never give out information about members to other members.
Men over 21 in all age groups, all body types, all ethnicities, all professions, visitors, military members 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. ManoH has the final say in deciding member status.
Hawaii has no legal nude beaches and nudity in public is not legal. Hawaii ManoH men want somewhere to play naked. ManoH is a way for 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.
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.
There’s something wrong with the way humans have come to accept almost every aspect of the human condition except for the most natural one. We’ve accepted guns, drugs and violence, yet refuse to accept bare breasts and genitalia.
We’ve become so desensitized to everything, except the one thing that makes us human. We’ve come to accept almost every negative aspect of human nature, yet refuse to condone the most natural state a human being can be — nude. That is why we have ManoH!
What is "Play"
Play is a range of activities associated with recreational pleasure and enjoyment. It can occur at any life stage. Play is relaxed, free-spirited and spontaneous. Play can be sexual and must be consensual.
