Feminist author claims nude art classes from a young age can make people more ‘relaxed’ about the human form – but GMB viewers brand the idea ‘ridiculous’

  • Author of How To Have Feminist Sex Flo Perry appeared on GMB this morning
  • Claims kids  being exposed to human form can make them less self conscious 
  •  Viewers weren’t keen on the idea with one saying the class could be ‘dangerous’

A feminist author has claimed that children seeing naked bodies from a young age can make them feel more ‘relaxed’ about the human body in the long run. 

Flo Perry and Mariella Frostrup appeared on Good Morning Britain today where they debated whether or not children’s art classes should include life drawing, in order to make them more comfortable with the human form. 

Flo, from London, believes it could be a ‘mind-opening experience’ while Mariella, 57, Somerset, said that while something needs to be done to address negative body ideals, she doesn’t feel this is the ‘most productive way’ to go about it.

Viewers weren’t keen on the idea, with one saying most young children would ‘laugh their heads off’ at the sight of a naked body, while others were angry at the idea, with one branding it dangerous’.

Flo argued: ‘Naked strangers is this big word. Nobody is gonna be like, “Put my kid in form of naked strangers”. 

‘We have to examine our own reaction to that and think “Why do we have that reaction?”.

Old people’s home invites nude model for life drawing class

A care home in London has bowed to residents’ demand to invite a nude male model for a life drawing class.

Sherwood Grange is a care home based in Kingston Vale, London, which provides both residential and short-term respite care for patients, including specialist care for dementia sufferers.

Residents requested care workers at the home to organise a life drawing class, together with “a nice handsome” man to model.

Some 12 residents took part in the life drawing class, led by professional artist Robin Rutherford, to paint a nude male model. They enjoyed glasses of prosecco while working on their pencil sketches.

“Most people expect life in a care home to be a certain way – but here at Sherwood Grange we’re keen to ensure that there are no limitations and every day can be different and fun,” Rick Mayne, home manager at Sherwood Grange, told Metro.

“Life in our care home is all about helping people to enjoy more independent and fulfilling lives – and today that meant expanding people’s experiences and doing something out of the ordinary.

He added: “It’s fair to say we’ve never had a nude model at the home before – but based on the response we may well do again!”

Now, photography is one particular way to make art. It captures the real world in the most natural way. Of course, natural sights, animals and unanimated objects are targets worth of a good shot. But, like in other forms of art, it always ends appreciating the beauty and complex of the human being.

Art buff: what it’s like to be drawn in the nude
When Chloë Hamilton was given the chance to pose for a naked portrait, she was keen. But then it was time to get undressed…

The hardest part is taking off my knickers.

In fact, when she arrives, I can’t help but play for time. I offer her a cup of tea, first, spending an unnecessary amount of time filling the kettle, selecting the mug, brewing the tea and pouring the milk. I make polite chit-chat about the weather and her journey.

I suggest she uses the upstairs loo rather than the one in the hallway, knowing that the journey up and down the stairs will add precious seconds to the trip and delay the inevitable.

Eventually, there is no avoiding it. I slip off my dress and underwear and perch on the sofa. The cushions feel rough on my exposed thighs. She positions me and then makes herself comfortable on the floor. Legs crossed, she fixes her eyes on my contorted body, her hand poised over a sheet of paper. “Ready?” she asks. I take a deep breath and nod. And then she begins to draw me. Nude. Continued…Read full original article…

Artistic performance brings together 115 naked people at the Museum of the Republic
The photo clicked by photographer Kazuo Okubo occurred during event that aimed to scare away the old-fashioned of the capital

Enquanto os termômetros marcavam 24Cº na capital federal, um grupo de 115 pessoas tirou a roupa e posou nu para o fotógrafo Kazuo Okubo em frente ao Museu da República de Brasília. O evento, que ocorreu durante a manhã deste sábado (02/9), se chama “Fotona” e faz parte da Cena Contemporânea. Segundo os organizadores, o clique rendeu o recorde de maior número de pessoas nuas em uma foto no Distrito Federal.

Responsável pela idealização, concepção e produção do Fotona, Diego Ponce de Leon, 35 anos, conta que o evento tem como objetivo ir de contra o momento de caretice e conservadorismo instalado na capital federal. “Nossa Brasília está se tornando uma cidade dormitório. Ninguém pode cantar, rir ou se divertir durante a noite. Vivemos um monte de lei do silêncio, bares sendo fechados, artistas sendo calados. Queremos mostrar que o concreto de Brasília também é feito de gente, arte e expressão”, garante. Cont…Read full original article…
