Courageous Body Acceptance - The Discussion

Courageous Body Acceptance - The Interactive Experience
Thursday, July 19, 7-9pm

Are you often uncomfortable in your own skin? Do you feel like your body will never measure up to the unrealistic standards by which you and others judge it? Do you feel like your body has betrayed you?

Our bodies are indeed under attack! Judgment, perfectionism, and look-ism are at an all-time high in the media. How a person looks and what a person wears can be criticized instantly to millions in a single tweet. In this virulent climate, can anyone hope to ever feel good about their body? 

Without a doubt, what we believe about our bodies is what we believe about ourselves. These beliefs can have a definitive effect on not only our daily lives, but for the rest of our lives as well. Feeling actually good about our physical state seems almost impossible.

Join Dr. Rix in a lively discussion and workshop while he visits New York from California and he addresses the struggle men can have enjoying and celebrating their bodies. In these consensual safe spaces, you will take tangible steps towards a courageous and positive body image, regardless of shape, size or age. Build a stronger sex-esteem and body image. You might be closer than you think to breaking through negative beliefs and stepping into deeper body confidence and self-love, so join us!

July 19: Courageous Body Acceptance - The Interactive Experience

This clothing-optional workshop puts body positivity into action. Not only will we talk about more accessible models of self-love, we will practice them in consensual interactive exercises and surprisingly fun experiments. Do you want to feel good about your body? Then join us and experience greater body freedom like never before!

A SPECIAL M.A.N. ORIENTATION SESSION (for men)

This Males au Naturel (MAN) quarterly orientation nude social is FREE. Small donations are welcome. Just show up! Registration is not necessary.
http://man.shuttlepod.org/event-2892464

Are you shy about your body?

Do you want to come to a Males Au Naturel event, but are afraid to be naked with other men?

This special orientation program is for you! (Experienced M.A.N. members, please come with your advice and suggestions!)

- Find out what you have in common with the 313 men who responded to Shungaboy’s body-acceptance survey.

- We’ll have an open discussion about body issues. Share your thoughts or just listen!

Take this short quiz and find out your nudist level. The results will be presented at the MAN orientation on June 13. Your written answers will be added to Shungaboy’s research. You’ll also receive a PDF report on Shungaboy’s survey results by email absolutely free. USE THIS LINK:

http://bodyacceptance.mensnakeddrawing.com/ds/7d97b529

ABOUT SHUNGABOY:
Shungaboy is an artist, a nudist, and the founder of Men's Naked Drawing Group (mensnakeddrawing.com). He has been helping men overcome their body issues through naked figure drawing sessions, discussion groups and one-on-one coaching since 2014. He welcomes all men in a kind, supportive, and non-judgmental way. Contact Shungaboy: shungaboy@gmail.com

ABOUT M.A.N.:
Males au Naturel ("MAN") is a men's social naturist* group based in New York City with around 125 members. At MAN, you can hang out nude in a non-sexual atmosphere.

Dress code: This is a great starter for first timers, or any guys curious about nude male social activities. Take it all off with us, or if you're not quite ready for that, keep your underwear on. It's up to you.

MAN's orientation sessions are strictly non-sexual. Naked hugs or incidental genital contact are allowed, but please be sensitive to the feelings of the person you want to touch.

Q: What if I get aroused?
A: That's not a problem as long as you don't do something to make it happen. If you stay engaged in conversation, it won't happen so much.

Q: What kind of men belong to MAN?
A: Our members include all body types, ethnic backgrounds, and income levels. Most consider themselves gay or bi, but friendly straight and bi-curious men are welcome. We're a mix of ages, and we welcome all men 21 and over.

* The words "naturist" and "nudist" are similar, but "naturist" is usually preferred by those who feel being naked is the natural way to be.
