Party With BearNaked Chicago

CHICAGO – BearNaked Chicago (BNC) is a gay, social, sexual, nudist group for “Bears”, other hairy men, and their admirers. Like to frolic in the buff? Join us! Enjoy sweaty, furry men celebrating each others’ manliness in a friendly, safe, sexual atmosphere (open to men 21 or older only).

BNC schedules at least three events each month. Most take place at Chicago’s Touché (leather/levis/bear bar), but for those who enjoy playing in the great outdoors we have a few summer trips to Camp Buckwood, a gay male nudist campground in south-central Indiana. Additionally, we work with bear run organizers to offer occasional play parties at bear events in the Midwest.  (And if you’re in a bear club and want to work with us to do just that, let us know!)

Who goes to our parties?  The same kinds of men you’ll see out on Halsted, except naked! We’re mostly 30- to 50-somethings, but have some 20-somethings and a few from the 60+ crowd. Most are caucasian, but we have good representation from African-American, Asian, and Latino/Hispanic members as well. We’re mostly average in build, but we have lots of thinner and lots of heavier men. We have some fur-balls, but run the gamut from hairy to smooth. We have tops, bottoms, versatiles, jackers, suckers, fuckers, voyeurs, and men ranging from vanilla to standard leather to kink.

We’re VERY friendly, love sex, and above all, respectful when someone says “No, thanks!”. You’re always free to go as far as YOU want, as long as it’s safe, sane, and consensual.  That said, we are all adults and each of us must take responsibility for our own bodies. We don’t require a doctor’s note, and we will not be the sex police or monitor consensual behavior. We always encourage our members and guests to practice safer sex, and we provide condoms if you forget yours.

Our monthly play parties follow this schedule: The first Sunday, mid-afternoon The third Saturday, early evening The fourth Wednesday, mid-evening As a bonus, BNC members get a discount on the monthly Bears, the Baths, and Beyond party on each fourth Saturday at Steamworks!  Check it out!
