Rochester Male Naturists (ROMANS) is a social organization of Gay Naturists located in Rochester, New York

Our members ranges in ages from mid thirties to seventies. Please keep in mind there are no GQ models in our group although some of our guys have modeled for the local art classes where they take all shapes and sizes.

We always say that social nudism and the ROMANS may not be for everyone. If you are looking for a comfortable and welcoming group in which to give naturism a try, you might want to consider us. Maybe you would even prefer to meet with a couple of us over coffee before attending a group activity.

ROMANS meetings are held at members’ homes with the homeowner serving as host. Often there is a theme to the meetings such as “Neck ties only”, Mardi Gras, Prince William’s wedding, or a wine tasting.  There are also quizzes and games at some of the meetings. Many of our hosts have hot tubs for nude soaking, and there is always lots of socializing and jokes.

From October to April the ROMANS participate in a monthly swim and volleyball night at a Rochester athletic club. The facilities include a large pool, a large hot tub, saunas, steam rooms, and work out equipment.

During the summer ROMANS hold a nude camping weekend at a nude, gay campground. Also many members attend the Gay Naturist International Gathering in late August for a week.

Membership is open to men over 21 years of age who have an interest in social nudism.  Most members come from the greater Rochester area, though Buffalo, Syracuse, Utica and the southern tier are also represented.
