    On Friday I just signed up as a nude model at two art schools for the coming semester because I'm between jobs and could use the dough. Although I haven't model or posed nude for anything I know what to expect as I was once an art student in college. One of my white roommates commented out loud on the size of black men's genitialia as after having to take a required studio class where there was a nude model. I've had to draw from the same model too and I'll admit he does have a nice piece. I have worked as a model for upcoming painting superstar Kehinde Wiley and there was that one episode of Pants Off Dance Off where I got the opportunity to get naked on TV (and get paid for it) while dancing.

    How many of you worked as a nude model for classes or posed for photography. What were the reactions? How did it make you feel after seeing the various amount of finished work? Are you still doing it? Would you work as a nude model if offered the chance? Mind you, this doesn't necessary mean for pornography as the human body isn't considered obscene. Feel free to be open as you will not be judged here -lest by me.

    I'd have no problem modeling nude - although I don't think I'd be high on anyones list of people they'd like to model for them! My only worry would be my mind wandering during the session and an inadvertant 'composition change' occuring. I'd hate to embarrass the other people there if something like that happened

    I find it surprising and thoughtful that someone's first reaction would be "I'd hate to embarrass the other people" instead of "I'd hate to embarrass myself." You must be very considerate.

    I try! I've said in another thread somewhere that I have no problem being nude, as long as other people are comfortable with it. If someone wanted to paint/photograph me aroused, that wouldn't bother me, but I wouldn't want to make anyone uncomfortable if that wasn't the image they were after! I have a bit of a 'hair trigger' (in a good way - I wouldn't want to give the wrong impression :wink:) and so the possibility concerns me a little - I guess I'd have to fall back on my massage technique - I work out the squares of numbers in my head!

    When I lived in San Francisco in the early 80's I modeled for a group that called itself a "gay mens erotic sketch class". The class was a group of 20 to 30 gay guys with variing degrees of talent who would meet a couple nights a month to sketch a nude model. There was usually a different model for each session. The classes were held in the "instructors" loft off of Folsom street. The erotic part was the model was suppose to stay hard while on the posing platform (before viagra) which was not always easy to do. Sometimes the sketchers would come up to the platform for a close inspection of the body parts they were drawing. I modeled for several sessions. One of the sketchers gave me a copy of the sketch he made that I still have. Got few other modeling gigs from the class and made a few bucks.

    Back in the dark ages when I was in art school we had nude models every week for 4 hours. Needless to say I was very excited when a male was scheduled. I was usually hard the entire time. On one occasion I think the model noticed and he boned up too. Thankfully the instructor was out of the class.

    When I was in my prime of youth , I worked for a half dozen artists posing either in a strap or completely nude. Four of the artists were working in Paris and were doing mostly straight art and one was in Amsterdam , doing calendar type art and one was in US, doing gay pornographic art! Would I do it again....sure, why not.. if the market for models my age existed!

    Before my gf was a fashion model she did nude modeling. I've done it as well, but only as a favor for a photographer friend.

    I've modeled for a few art classes, as well. I wanted some extra cash for a trip I was planning, and the opportunity presented itself, so I figured, why not?

    Was a pretty pleasant experience. In addition to the pay, I got a few nice offers from the women, which was pretty flattering. Also, those people can really draw! It's amazing.

    But yeah. Would do it again.

    I go to an Art school, and we have nude models, one every month, and according to my teacher, they get paid a hefty amount. My school actually holds fundraisers so they can continue to have nude models, for drawing, painting and sculpture. About $20 dollars an hour is the average. They get all types of models, to bring some difference and challenges into the art. Why would they steer away from guys with big dicks? I mean yes, like half of the guys at my school like dick. I don't. But it's about art not the quick blowjob in the bathroom between classes.

    I have worked as such for a photographer, everything was completely dependent on the project, intent, and shoot. Can't say that they were very much alike, depending on the project. Good to have something warm to cover yourself with on occasion in large studios..

    The answer to your question is $15-20 an hour love2showoff. When I initially applied I was told the advertisement seemed to attract more female models and very few male models. She said she was happy to see more men signing up. No, SpruceGoose, they don't see the goods until you are booked for a class and even then they won't shy away from a guy with a big penis. As someone said earlier they want all body types.

    C'mon arliss, with your lean physique and features I bet you'd make a great model. Bet you'd do it for free if everyone in th class were hot females.

    Man-thango - how did you cope with a wandering mind, or did such things just not 'come up' (godddamn puns!)?

    I was nude for more than 10 minutes at a time when I stripped on TV SlimGuySB. You know, erections happen from time to time so I don't worry about it. It's natural. I can control my erections or keep my composure as a friend put it. If you find yourself getting hard just think of something else and it will return to being soft. I'm so used to being nude and in my natural state (non-arousal) that I just don't get hard unless I think of something deliberately.

    Yeah, I'm pretty comfortable being nude in front of others. I'm a shower at 5.75 flacid and my erection is pretty heavy so stays pointing down somewhat anyway - so even if I fill a little or go back and forth it would be like 6.5 - but would max at 8.0, but not in front of a crowd unless deliberate.
