Where can I find places to be nude?


Where can I find places to be nude? That is a question I constantly get asked. There are a lot of things to do on meetup.com, however, you have to sift through all the others to find the nude centric events. And it’s not always about events. What if you want a naked getaway like what nude gay adventures offers or a nudist resort destination? Many nudist resort or group sites have their page with only a few links. It is all sort of disjointed and not very reliable.

Out of this shortfall, nudecentre.com was founded. A single source for great events like gaynaturists.org, groups, and organisations that may otherwise not have the means to be seen. The nude centre offers a forum or anyone to post about anything nudism related. We also have our weekly online events and soon to be real-life events.

One day we will have a physical space where groups can meet and hold events in a safe place without the worry of other groups at the event space being “shocked by the nudity” or being turned down by the booking department for being a “sexual event” Those have both happened to me.

I love supporting the nudist culture and naturist businesses. Nudism really is where my passion is. We all need to work together to promote nudity and push it into the light. Little by little, we can normalise what we do and make it not a taboo. It will take more of us having events, creating organisations, and promoting our lifestyle among the clothed. We are part of a movement to change the world, even in a small way.

GNI on Social Media

GNI has a great presence on social media platforms.  Here's a summary:

This site, BuffBuzz is our blogger site, where we publish articles and informational material about GNI and male social nudity in general.  At one time we published a newsletter called the The GNI Informer, which then became The GNI E-former, and this blog is an incarnation of that format.  We can feature full frontal nudity pictures here.

On Facebook, we have a general information page that is open to the public.  The postings here are always G-rated and are informational only.


Also, on Facebook, we have a private Facebook group that you must ask to join.  Once approved, the fact that you are in this group will not appear on your Facebook profile.  This group is PG-13 rated.  It is a very active, and is a great place to meet other guys and chat, or ask questions about GNI and social nudity in general.   Many guys post their selfies, and sometimes feature tasteful backside nudity only.    Posts and pictures are highly moderated so anything that falls outside of PG-13, or in any way is rude or disrespectful is quickly removed.


Instagram is a popular social media site that caters to picture lovers and short videos, designed for minimal interaction. Postings may include tasteful backsides, but otherwise Instagram is heavily moderated to be family friendly.


Twitter is a social media site that caters to short text and pictures that is designed for lots of interaction.  For the most part, Twitter can operate at an R or even X rating, and has largely taken over the Tumblr crowd in the last year.


MeWe is a newer social media site that has a small but loyal base.  Think of it like Facebook (since it has lots of the same features) but without moderation.   It has attracted lots of nudists who can post naked selfies without concern.  It has a fair amount of interaction, but it divides itself into group posts and a chat feed which some find confusing.



Finally, we have a few videos posted on Vimeo, a video sharing site.

GNI Offering Virtual Meet-Ups!


To help all of us feel connected in these quarantined times, GNI has started offering virtual naked meet-ups recently.  



Called "GNI Mingle", these meet-ups have proven to be very popular and allows you to connect with like minded naturists from the safety of your own home.

We publicize these through our email list, and on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
