Taking nude selfies is an act of erotic expression, and sharing them with a trustworthy partner can deepen your intimacy (plus make for tantalizing foreplay). Sadly, the joys of this pastime are often eclipsed by anxiety over photos being stolen or shared without consent. Considering the pervasive mixed messages about our bodies and sexuality, it’s no wonder that sexting has become such a fraught topic.
Ever since writing an advice book about sexting, I’ve been fascinated by the politics of this most modern of subjects. Taking a naked picture of yourself and sharing it is consensual adult sex; distributing such pictures without the subject’s consent or looking at them without their permission is abuse. As long as everyone involved enthusiastically consents at every step of the way, taking and share nude photos is one of the hottest things you can do. Read on for my expert tips at getting even more sext-ual pleasure out of nudes. Continued…Read full original article…
Roshan Adhihetty is a Swiss photographer who joined a group of nude hikers on their various hiking trips across Europe.
The series is called ‘Die Nacktwandere’, German for “the naked hike”. Shots feature tasteful depictions of average nature-lovers who simply prefer to hike naked.
While Adhihetty never actually joined the naked hikers in taking off his clothes to stroll the trail nude, his photos almost make us want to.
The nude treks took the crew over beautiful mountain tops in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Even though the hikers went without clothes, regular hiking gear like backpacks, walking poles, and packed lunches were still in order. Continued…Read full original article…
Remember the cell phone hacking scandal of 2014, when a bunch of woman celebrities had their nude selfies leaked? I’ll admit it at the time I wondered, ‘Why the HELL would you keep NUDE selfies on your cell phone??”
Um, fast forward a few years and my phone is crammed… and I mean CRAMMED with nude selfies, right alongside pictures of my kids, my storefront and various Brooklyn sunsets. Like, when people ask to see pics of my kids I have to cup my hands around my phone and scroll through about a couple dozen nude selfies before I get to them.
Tanto las performances como las videoinstalaciones son exponentes artísticos que se inician con el siglo XX. Son muestras de un arte conceptual que fusiona componentes procedentes de diversas artes y replantea su mensaje en un nuevo formato. Para la performance, con elementos procedentes del teatro y la danza, la acción plástica tiene lugar en el cuerpo del artista, o a través del mismo, en un episodio limitado temporalmente. Las videoinstalaciones, menos efímeras, suponen el uso de las nuevas técnicas audivisuales y de una cinematografía experimental para transmitirnos esa experiencia artística. En algunas ocasiones se centra en el cuerpo y puede casi visionarse como una performance que perdura en el tiempo. Ambas técnicas artísticas se ven de un modo muy próximo en la obra del artista Miguel Andrés Yecla (Murcia, España, 1982).
La fotografías anteriores representan instantes de varias de sus performances. Para hacernos una idea de su significado reproduzco un video en el que este artista comenta el making-of de uno de sus montajes que aúna varios trabajos previos con el título UNTITLED Exhibition(ism): Continued…Read full original article…
Goreng man and tour guide Joey Williams said the ‘Buff on the Bluff’ social media craze, which results in hikers posting photos of themselves naked once they reached the peak of Bluff Knoll, was disrespectful.
“Especially if it’s posted up and they have got a beautiful panoramic shot of the top of the hill, but someone’s butt cheeks are on there,” he said.
While Mr Williams said it was OK for people to climb the mountain if they were respectful, he would still prefer it if they did not climb.
Lending its strong support to the LGBT community and to discourage homophobic slurs in sport, The Perth Python men’s hockey team in Australia just did the unthinkable – shed all their clothes on the field for a calendar photoshoot.
“Growing up, I would hear a lot of homophobic slurs thrown around the hockey field.
“I wasn’t able to stand up for others or myself because I was too scared of being rejected by my teammates,” the watoday.com quoted Perth hockey player Reid Smith as saying. Continued…Read full original article…
A flurry of recent ‘My first time’ contributions got me thinking. Looking back over some of those posts, it’s clear that for many of us there’s an element of initial ‘dare’ about our first exposure in public. This doesn’t have to be a direct ‘I dare you’ approach, but can manifest itself in different ways.
The most recent ‘My first time’ contribution from Deborah suggests she didn’t want to appear prudish or embarrassed, and thus dove into the experience head first. My own naturist debut was a little bit similar.
So I made up a notecard which I distributed inworld to SL friends (who have identified as naturist in RL…some of my SL friends are only SL naturists) asking two simple questions. Continued…Read full original article…
Libby Magness Weisberg waits at her Cherry Hill condo in a plush pink bathrobe and animal-print slippers. In a few minutes, she will pose for photographer and artist Nancy Hellebrand — completely naked.
Weisberg is 90.
Her body bears witness to the progression of life, of carrying and breastfeeding three children, of age spots and wrinkles and sags, of hips that creak and shoulders that hunch, and all the other travails and indignities of getting old.
Some might call her body a battlefield. Hellebrand calls it beautiful.
“I love their wrinkles,” says Hellebrand, 73, tall and lean with a shock of wild gray hair and round, red glasses perched on her nose. “I love their skin, the way light is on their skin. It’s a different version of beautiful. In younger women, the skin is taut. In older women, the skin is the opposite of taut … and it has its own strength.” Continued…Read full original article…
Facebook is asking users to send the company their nude photos in an effort to tackle revenge porn, in an attempt to give some control back to victims of this type of abuse.
Individuals who have shared intimate, nude or sexual images with partners and are worried that the partner (or ex-partner) might distribute them without their consent can use Messenger to send the images to be “hashed”. This means that the company converts the image into a unique digital fingerprint that can be used to identify and block any attempts to re-upload that same image.
Facebook is piloting the technology in Australia in partnership with a government agency headed up by the e-safety commissioner, Julia Inman Grant, who told ABC it would allow victims of “image-based abuse” to take action before pictures were posted to Facebook, Instagram or Messenger.
