Maybe ! for Photographer Gracie Hagen's photo series.
Now that I've said it I'll probably have to go through with it. That's how my mind works.

What a bitter and nonsensical little post! Do you undress in the dark or something? I knew Spencer Tunick's work for 10 years before he came to Ireland and saw it in many galleries. I participated to be part of his fantastic work and the experience was fantastic, not to tell people.

I don't think you'd have bothered if you couldn't tell people. I'd say it was all you could talk about:

Elat: I'm doing the mass nude photograph tomorrow.
Elat's friend: Oh I could never do that.
Elat (feingning surprise): Why ever not, the body is a beautiful thing, nothing to be ashamed of etc. etc. ad nauseum.

Its a conversation I've heard so many times before.

I was just pointing out that not wanting to pose nude can have nothing to do with shame or body issues.

We all know that people do stuff with their self-image in mind, and Facebook has magnnified this a thousandfold. That's why things like zombie walks and dressing up like Where's Wally and flashmobs etc. all took off in the internet era. Because nobody would bother if you couldn't upload it to Facebook. I believe the psychology of posing nude is often similar. It's hardly mean or bitter to suggest this.

I do zombie walks and flashmobs too but the reason why has nothing to do with pictures or social media, I do it because it is fun and better than sitting on my ass at home.

You could say this sort of thing about anything someone does outside their own home involving other people, I am in a few different volunteer groups and they have pictures of us volunteering on facebook but the reason I do it has nothing to do with that.

Why flash mobs and the like took off in the internet era has to do with communication as it is much easier to gather a group of like minded people now then it has ever been. Now this has nothing to do with being a life model as they have existed much longer than the internet, much longer than film, for hundreds of years.

If you don't want to pose nude then it doesn't mean there is something wrong with your self esteem or that a person who does is an egomaniac (I know as a model this comes across as me being defensive, but I'm not as I said before my self esteem does not need validation from others)

Well forums have been around for about 15 years now. It would have been fairly easy to gather like minded people back then. In fact, that's what the internet was lauded for in the late 90s early 00's - meeting like minded groups of people. It was only really the advent of social media that these things took off.

Everyone knows that people use their facebook to project an image of themselves, everyone knows that people choose their profile pic to convey certain things apart from "this is what I look like" etc. This is all uncontroversial knowledge. But most people don't like to admit it about themselves.

I loved the experience and got an amazing print of the image and I love it so I have no regrets. Most of my friends are artists so telling them I was naked for a photograph for my own ego is about as interesting as having a mutton stew. But glad you came out of the woodwork once again Estudiante to again cast doubt, misery, troll and bicker on anything you can no matter how weak your argument is and even saying that one cannot enjoy an experience because they will tell people about it is as pretty a pathetic argument one can muster on why anyone should do anything interesting.

I'm sure you'll drag it out until you get bored and reappear in a a couple of weeks when you find something else to cast doubt on with a 90 word tirade with an equally naff bicker.

And I'm sure I'll be reading a topic started by you soon that is all about you:

"Just made 7 pots of blackberry and vanilla jam from blackberries I picked in September. Can't wait to try it later. do you make or have made jam. any interesting recipes? "

"my favourite pub. Shoot the Crows in Sligo. Rustic!"

"About 4 hours on average I spend online a day at least which is a lot."

"Bit of a pity as I like having lots of books around me but just don't have the room to get a bigger bookshelf. "

etc etc

I don't know why I thought you were attention seeking.....

I don't think Elat is going to whip his cock out for us - that is not the point of the topic

@ Estudiante you cannot win an argument by putting words in other people's mouths.

I think it's very unfair to say that it's attention seeking. Perhaps the poster is an attention seeker, and he surely got that because he got your juices flowing! At the end of the day lots of people pose nude these days in one form or another even if it is just "selfies" log onto gaydar, grindr, scruff etc and someone will want to see a picture of your bits so at the end of the day what is the issue? For some people it is just a kick or a thrill, for others yes it is attention seeking.

Frankly, if someone is feeling inhibited about their body or their body image who said that is wrong? We are all entitled to feel how we want to feel and there is nothing I have read here to infer that this is about making some people feel worse, it was just a chat about a somewhat inane but light topic.

Honestly, gays and their drama! It'll never be done
