West Coast Gathering 2014:
Join over 400 men from throughout North America, the Pacific, and Europe for all nude, male fun Aug 29 -Sept 7!

The pool is a great place to relax and have fun CMEN's West Coast Gathering 2014 will be held August 29 - September 7 in California's Malibu Hills. This all nude gathering will attract men from throughout North America, the Pacific and Europe to enjoy the fun, Malibu sun, fresh air, camaraderie, activities, shows and workshops. Several session options are available.

The West Coast Gathering will be held at a conference facility in the scenic Santa Monica mountains, secluded from the highway, full of trees, and with great views of the surrounding mountains. Amenities include a heated Olympic-size swimming pool, heated dormitory-style cabins, modern restrooms and hot showers, and several hiking trails. The camp is far from the city lights, but only 40 miles from Los Angeles.

Among the most popular features of the annual all nude CMEN Gatherings is the now famous, 88 degree Olympic-sized swimming pool. The large pool has proven a great place to relax in the Malibu sun, play volleyball, meet new friends, take an aerobics class, and to enjoy several afternoon special events.

Also popular are the daily themed social hours. Just for fun, the social hour parties and evening events have a different theme each day. While nudity is still the overall rule, gathering attendees are encouraged (but not required) to wear accessories that correspond to the theme for the afternoon social hour and evening. The social hours are a great time to mingle with new and old friends.

Hikers explore local mountain trails The gatherings also features a variety of workshops, numerous seminars, aerobics, hiking, massage, playshops, other activities, and of course, just being with nearly 300 friendly, naked men!

As the gatherings are located near Hollywood, they also feature at least two shows nightly, including game shows, talent shows, contests and special performances. Evening activities also include country two-step and square dancing, nightly disco dancing, and bingo.
