Something social and fun for guys in Cairns

Why not? What is there to be ashamed of? Being nude is great, but it can be rather boring if you have to be alone to be nude. So now there’s Cairns Sunboys.

Have you ever longed to swim, camp or party naked with friends who enjoy the same? Have you enjoyed the feeling that comes from working or playing nude? And have you ever just wanted to drop all the masks and pretensions that are so often required of us?

Come join the growing number of gay men that have discovered male bonding au naturel! Cairns Sunboys is an independent group of gay male nudists/naturists. Sunboys promotes and encourages an active interest in social nudism and is open to all gay, bisexual, and gay-friendly men over 18 years of age.

Sunboys acknowledge that sex is natural, but sex is not equated with naturism. Sunboys respects all of its members for their individuality, whether or not they choose to express their sexuality, and shall endeavour to respect individual sensibilities as may be appropriate. We encourage members to do the same. Sunboys is a nudist club with a strict no-sex policy at all functions.

When telling others about going nude, quite often the approach you use to tell somebody you are a nudist (or would like to be) will have a big impact on how they respond. Some techniques work better than others, and will depend upon the people involved.

Address the issue casually. Treat the concept of nudity as a relative non-issue, ie. no big deal. When discussing the topic, treat it nonchalantly as you would a discussion about the weather.


Appeal to their interest. Always appeal to a person’s intellect by using concise, logical arguments that support your cause. If the person you are trying to introduce the idea to is into environmentalism, than stress the natural connection between nudism and nature. If the person is into freedom of choice or equal rights, then use arguments that cater to that interest.

Be prepared to answer questions. Most people will typically ask the same basic questions. You should be able to answer most questions somebody would ask.

You should also be able to site positive examples and logical arguments that support the benefits nudist and dispel the common misconceptions. Most of this type of information is available online from various sites. Make a reference to skinny-dipping by either yourself or friends who have gone or would like you to go with them.
