I talked about this with a few guys in the chat room the other night and got some good replies but I'm just wondering what other people think...sorry if it's been discussed before. A friend of mine is an art major and she's in a figure drawing class. In order for them to have models for each class, every student in the class has to recruit one model during the semester. The girls recruit a guy and the dudes have to find a chick to model. Well, my friend asked me if I'd be her model. She was real anxious and stressed out about not being able to find some one and I felt bad so I said yes. This was at the beginning of the semester and I totally forgot about it until a couple of days ago when she reminded me that I had to do it next week. I'm not real shy or embarassed being naked, generally, which is why I said yes, but the more I'm thinking about this the more nervous I'm getting. I'm definitely a shower: I'm fairly long soft and have big balls, so a big overall package (on a pretty short-statured guy). I've gotten my share of looks and comments throughout my life that I've always just shrugged off but I've never been held under such scrutiny in front of such a large number of people. I'm afraid that my size will cause a bit of a stir in the class. Or that all the attention on me might go to my head and I might start to get aroused. Or, maybe worse, comments or laughter might make me ashamed or embarassed and I might chicken out. Even if it's not something I do--like getting hard or chickening out--I don't want to be the catalyst for, say, some jealous punk making a rude comment that prompts the instructor to give a lecture on respecting the model's body or something. I just see it as a huge potential for embarassment in so many possible ways. What do you all think? Have any of you guys life modelled before? What were your experiences? Should I express these concerns to the instructor? Or to my friend? That's what I've been thinking, but I'm not sure how I should address it--whether I should be tasteful and risk being misunderstood or just be blunt and to the point. Or should I just suck it up and do it? Should I cancel it? Am I making too big of a deal and just being egomaniacal? Help me out!
