    Ladies,

    Would anyone ever consider nude modeling for an adult magazine?

    Do you think there is a difference between nude adult modeling and porn? How is modeling in Victoria's Secret, Frederick's of Hollywood, a department store catalog etc. different from modeling in something like Maxim, Playboy, Scoreland, Penthouse?

    Would you feel differently about the opportunity if it required modeling with another person with no actual sexual acts taking place? What about modeling with a nude woman vs a nude man?

    Where would you draw the line? How much is too much? When do you think this would impact your life? Do you really think it would effect your future when there are so many pictures shots available all over the internet now?

    I looked for thread like this in women's issues hoping to see where women stood on this.

    For me (a man) the line is simple: is there any genital or oral contact between the two persons? Or between a single person and a sexual object (which replaces the second person).

    So no cock-touching with either hands, mouth, pussy, or even eyes. And obviously, the cock must be flaccid. If not, it's already porn. In the case of girl-girl scenes, most people would be a bit more tolerant, I guess. But not too much.

    Mind you, I think nude modelling in "non-porn" magazines may be a stepping-stone towards the nastier work. For you, psychologically, it may be so. But also for your agents or others involved in this industry.


    P.S.: why don't you put your desire in a more artistic context? In contemportary art everything is permitted. They'll just call it "art" and get away with it (at least in Europe).

    Ok, flaccid members make it non-pornographic?

    What would be your feelings if your partner had done pictures like this in a magazine?

    Lets say no penetration, what about other things, sexy clothing, suggestive looks, body oil etc. Is this not still pornographic?

    No, no I'm not saying I'm going to do anything of the kind. I wanted to know how women felt about this. How they thought it would impact their lives and their futures. I do think there's a difference in this sort of thing from a woman's stand point vs a man's. Which was the main reason I put it in the women's issues. I want to know how this affects a woman's life.

    I was a body model at the local art instute. It wasnt pornographic but I was buck naked sometimes posing with other guys sometimes with women sometimes with both. To be honest it is alot of hard work whether you are male or female. You cannot have an ounce of fat on you, I did it to help pay for college and it was well paying, but I worked out twice a day to pose on the average twice a week. One of the students was a photographer and a couple of us were invited to do photography sessions for her. I do not know where the photos went but this was harcore porn. This was even more work, it looks easy, but imagine being naked and getting a hardon for two to three hours with someone you do not know and four people standing around looking at you with lights and cameras. Anyway it paid for school and I retired when I graduated. The bottom line it is much harder for guys or girls than it looks and it is not glamerous at all.

    I am a plus model and set certain limitations for myself, first of all the type of nudity could adversely affect the type of work you would get in the future. If there is a creative edge to the work or if it is of a fetish nature or erotic, agents would accept it easier than porn mags. When I did major work, there were times was nude but it was tasteful. There are also many times I am recognized in public and living in a big city, I would not feel comfortable being recognized for something of a sexual nature. If I had no professional aspirations and lived a very private life maybe

    Thank you for your response. I couldn't imagine for one moment being involved in actual porn.

    Ok, so you don't feel like the nude spreads have affected your future? You said tasteful so I'm assuming the photos were for something other than a pornographic magazine?

    I really wouldn't mind. The human body is beautiful, and shown in a non-obscene way (even if in a somewhat "adult" or "naughty" context), there's nothing wrong with it.

    If you have a good photographer, it can even be the thing to do. In Europe, many couples go to photographers to have "artistic" nudes taken of them, and they hang these photos in their living room for everyone to see. Nothing wrong with it.

    You know, I think most people spontaneously "feel" when a picture is just a nice nude, or when a line is crossed and it becomes sexual or pornographic.


    I would even go so far as to say that some very openly "sexual" pics can still be beautiful without being obscene. It all depends on the intention that's embedded in the picture. A pic that celebrates sexuality (even with penetration or oral, manual stimulation) without being pornographic, would be OK for me, if my girl were to ask.

    Submissive girl, perhaps you already received an offer or you have plans to work for one particular magazine? If so, don't hesitate to share the title of that magazine, so we can give our view.

    i was in a university art class once doing life drawings. we were all arranged in a circle, drawing a nude male standing on a stage in front of us, when he suddenly got a hardon. all of the erasers came out in unison as everyone now had to redraw his penis.

    wait a second, i think i was the model...

    No, the nudity has been in the state of undress wearing a Gaultier corset for example, another was with other women for a fashion mag, not pornographic

    My wife and I met in college on the set of an amateur porn shoot. We did it for several years after college as well and we have never found any pics of ourselves or the movies online. With all the porn that is out there, unless your working for a big studio name you will be lost in anonymity. Just don't use your real name

    I agree that openly sexual pictures are not always obscene. I have collected quite a few of those, mostly they are black and whites or shadowed photos. Garish colors and off lighting change the entire tone of the picture in my mind. I also make a snap judgement as to what I believe is pornographic and what is simply nude photography. Thank you for your previous responses.

    :biggrin1: This is cute. That mental imagine with be with me for awhile. Thanks!

    Ok! This was what I thought you were implying in your previous response. You have established a line between a normal nude spread and anything that could be considered pornographic. I've started thinking a lot about this especially after your sex object thread and the idea of always being objectified.

    Thank you for sharing your story. Honestly I agree with people possibly never being found. I would only recognise about 20-30 people if I saw them in public.

    As a lingerie and underwear designer and manufacturer I oversee the production of provocative showroom posters that we do periodically. We use actual couples that are comfortable together, so we get a natural chemistry. We can't really show any total nudity, but our posters do feature very well endowed models. To accentuate the guy's attributes we like him to get al least partially aroused. Many times by the end of a shoot the couples get really comfortable ( and excited ) and they come up with poses of their own that do not include the underwear. Although I can't use those shots ,it does give me many a great memory and hard-on when I revisit those pictures.

    I did hardcore video and stills for four years for the same prson (not a company) I do not know who bought the stuff but I never saw myself on the internet (it did not exist back then ) or any video or magazine. Actually the fun part came after these shoots when we would be so turned on we would go home and really go at it for hours. Looking back it was fun and hard work and even then the money was good.

    Yes it was because of my career path in the long term. If you want to try something first like sitting for an artist looking for nudes, I know someone you can meet. And it feels nice hearing my article got you thinking thanks

    That could be a different experience. However, with the internet being readily accessible by millions you now have a better chance of been seen by someone who would remember your face. Couples make videos together all the time, I'm sure the majority never know they are now on the internet.

    My home is wherever reality seems elastic and the
    im not too keen on the concept of nude modeling personally but adult modeling (with lingerie or fetish attire) wouldn't bother me 'tall.

    im even open to partial nudity, perhaps for instance with spanking fotography. that would be kinda neat, even.

    im open to posing with others too. no sexual acts though, and some attire (partial nudity potentially ok).

    i dont see much difference between modeling for VS/Freddie's or Maxim/Playboy/et al, with the possible exception that Penthouse or Playboy is a little bit more overtly sexualized in nature visually-speaking than VS/FoH.

    i was impulsive and rushed in here to answer w/o reading the other responses first.

    *quickly runs off to read other replies*

    caveat: i can see deciding that any kind of adult modeling with which i would be personally comfortable was actually in fact not okay if my partner's needs for privacy became a pressing issue. my own privacy isnt a major concern...i dont really have family to consider, my family is close-knit and kind of hippie-ish so very accepting as long as im happy & safe. but i understand having a more traditional background/fam and needing to take that/them under consideration, so i would adjust any openness i had to the concept of adult modeling if need be.

    Thank you:biggrin1:

    I think I was torn between whether seductive photos in a magazine spread were really that bad.

    Family always comes to mind first when thinking about this. The thought of being a disappointment is hard to bare. Then as SizeQueen was asking in another thread... how would it feel to always be an object to people on the street?
