At sunrise on Sunday, June 2, 2019, 125 people posed nude in front of Facebook and Instagram’s New York City headquarters at Astor Place to challenge social media censorship. In collaboration with the National Coalition Against Censorship, artist Spencer Tunick created a photographic artwork as part of their #WeTheNipple campaign.
Okay…this is the moment where i need to yell…WHAT THE FUCK???!!
Yes Katy Perry and a number of other women stripped down naked and pulled off these ridiculous stunts in order to get people to vote this Tuesday. For the Democrats of course. While i have no problem with naked women, to be honest this was just silly.
Why would you do something so utterly ridiculous and to be honest, just primed to have most people recoil in disgust. And those that don’t, either laugh their asses off or masturbate to the images. I guess somewhere inside their little liberal minds they actually think posing nude in a campaign ad will either help their side win or make stars like Katy Perry relevant again. Yes Katy will forever be known as the dumb ass who showed her tits and ass on the internet in order to get you to go vote. Utterly ridiculous and in poor taste. All this has shown in not the beauty of women, but the desperation of irrelevant celebrities and the Democrat Party. Because all that T&A was not on my mind when i stepped into the voting both yesterday.
reposted from this blog: Why is it Necessary to Take Nude Photos of Oneself?
I have been wondering why I find it necessary to take skyclad photos, why anyone who is a naturist/nudist or someone who simply enjoys being nude. Why the images? Why are they posted to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, or other social media sites? Having spent way too much time wondering about this, I think I may have arrived at an answer that fits many who are like me.
Images are there to help us, to help me, get out of our heads. They become a visible proof that we are more than just feelings and thoughts.There is an honesty, or at least an attempt at honesty, expressed in these images. Risking being vulnerable enough to be honest, is not the same thing as posting images for exhibitionist purposes. The images I am talking about have nothing to do with lewdness, lust, or then tension of sexuality. Intention, it all comes down to intention. Images that are exhibitionist have a motive of obtaining sexual satisfaction or to shock. So, what is the intention?
If you take photos of yourself au naturel, why do you do so? What is your need? Why do you allow others to see these images? Why the risk? All images have a purpose and meaning. However, we rarely know what the purpose and meaning of our own images are about. There is a story, a story of at least 1,000 words for each image. More often than not, the story is yet to be discovered, as the image is more about unconscious projection than that it is about conscious intention.
As for myself, the images tell the story of my reclaiming my authority rather than having the authority projected onto others. I refuse the authority of the shadows from my childhood. I refuse the authority of a church that would tell me that my naked body is sinful. I refuse to be a victim. Of course, there are laws and a broader society within which we all find ourselves. For our own safety, we find that fine line between “in your face” confrontations and in hiding from the world and our own fears.
Read the rest at the link above. But i have to admit I am inspired to take more nudes of myself.
A NUDE model claims she was flung in jail after she was caught posing for a secret photoshoot inside one of Egypt’s ancient temples.
Marisa Papen, who describes herself as a “free-spirited and wild hearted expressionist”, traveled with photographer Jesse Walker to Egypt for a spectacular photoshoot inside and outside some of the country’s most famous landmarks.
In a blog post reported by various media outlets over the weekend she claimed she was put in jail an hauled before a court as a result of her nude al fresco outing.
However the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities has disputed how accurate the images are suggesting they may have been faked or taken some time ago, reports Gulf News.
The Belgian model said: “The last two years I have walked wild and free in at least 50 countries. Rarely do I end up in precarious situations. Until April this year, in Egypt.”
Marisa, from the Flanders region of Belgium, met up in Cairo with photographer Walker who flew in from Australia to do the shoot.
And even though the duo said they were aware of the cultural, political and religious differences between Egypt and the West, the adventure ended differently than they both expected.During a first photoshoot near the famous pyramids of Giza, the two got into trouble.
They reportedly bribed a security guard to start the photoshoot when suddenly two young men showed up.
Papen said: “I was suddenly completely awake, like a cold shower at 5am in the morning.
Okay lets be honest here. While i admire her work and her passion, she obviously broke the law and did something very stupid. Like going into a Muslim country and doing a nude photoshoot!
A person once said a picture is worth a thousand words. And he was right, it is. But this picture is supposed to help support the argument for women being topless in public in Sweden. This is the same nation that fucking bends over backwards to accommodate the Muslim refugees that are swarming the country. And with the number of rapes, and murders, tripling in the country due to Muslim refugees, why in God’s Holy Name would you want to push for topless equality at a time like this? Do you want to give the Muslim rapefugees a easier way to target who they can rape? Priorities here people of Sweden. Get them, and then get them in order.
Now the next thing i have to say about this picture is how off putting the two people in the picture. The both of them look very androgynous and like hipsters. Why not use two older people like a hairy chested male and a average looking female? Why does the picture use two young and somewhat ugly looking, androgynous hipsters. When i first saw this picture i looked at the male and my first thought was, “Why do they have a flat chested woman and not so flat chested woman in this picture? It makes no sense.” In other words the androgyny of the male completely throws the picture off and obscures the message. Sadly enough the Northern Europeans tendency to want to be SJW and PC destroys their own message in this case.
And so to get to the final point about this one must remember that the Topless movement does not support naturism . It is a feminist movement that only supports WOMEN BEING ALLOWED BY LAW TO BE TOPLESS IN PUBLIC THE SAME AS MEN. While we as naturist can support the Topless movement, do not expect the same Topless movement to come to our aid. Remember most of the Topless movement is populated by young feminist, liberal types who flit from one social justice topic to the next with no care for the wreckage they leave behind and many of them are so body shy they’d never go totally nude in public, let alone at a nudist resort or beach. So i say why bother supporting them unless it truly benefits us. These same women would be the first to protest public nudity on the basis that it may trigger a transsexual or some body shy person. After all these are the same people who think a naked, flaccid penis is some form psychological and physical aggression. So these people will never be okay with the law allowing men to walk around naked because penises trigger them. But some of them may be okay with women walking around nude because female body privilege and “muh patriarchy oppression” and all.
Well thats my two cents on this topic.
On Tuesday of this week i went on my first Naturist hike with a group. Nantahala National Forest was where we decided to do a 10 mile hike and we started around 11 A.M.. I thought it would be a piece of cake for me but in less then a mile i was so winded and tired that I had to stop. NO ONE TOLD ME WE’D BE HIKING UP A FREAKING MOUNTAIN!!! Suffice to say, i elected to turn back so the others could continue their hike in peace and at the pace they had set. I was truly embarrassed but i knew that i couldn’t keep up with the others who were all seasoned hikers.
After about 20 minutes of rest my pride and determination got to me and i decided to continue on my own at my pace. I surprisingly made it 2 more miles before i had to turn back. I could have gone on much further but i knew that if i didn’t turn back at that point i might miss meeting up with the group when they came back down from the mountain. So i turned back, deciding that I would take pictures on the way.
The pictures truly don’t do justice to the area. It is very beautiful and peaceful. My trip down the mountain was quite enjoyable as the wind blew and i could feel the cool wind on my skin. I was nude going up the mountain and going all the way back down to the river where we first started and it felt great.
I actually squatted in the river for a few minutes to clean my rear end off because after sitting on the trail times my butt crack had leaves and dirt all over it. I was not going to put back on my shorts without a quick wash up. As soon as i had finished putting on my shorts I heard someone behind, a family of four out to take pictures on the trail. I was glad i had my clothes back on at this point. Even though there is no federal statue or ordinance about being nude on Federal land, we had decided to be respectful and try to remain clothed near the entrance to the trail so as not to upset any families.
After I rested for a few minutes i decided to walk some more to keep myself entertained so i decided to follow the trail to a scenic waterfall called Laurel Falls. I figured the family i had seen earlier had went that way so i decided to stay clothed.
Laurel Falls was a beautiful scene, even though i had to walk a mile to get to it. I also caught up with the family i had seen earlier and talked with them for a bit. After a few pictures we all walked back to the entrance to the trail and they left.
After the walk to the falls i was exhausted, hot, and kinda miserable so i sat down near the road and rested for almost a hour before once more i decided to do something with what i felt would be the last hour before the group returned and we left. So i decided to check out the camp site i had heard one of the guys mention. As you can see from the pictures above it was a nice, kind of isolated spot so I sat down and disrobed and spent the last hour naked before the guys returned.
When everyone came back we decided to drink a beer and check out the river a bit. The beer tasted pretty good and we ended up laughing, joking and taking pictures of the river and each other.
After the fun and games we returned to the hotel, showered, and went to eat at a Mexican restaurant. After that we sat around the hotel room naked and shot the shit for a few hours. With one of the guys taking a few pictures of me sitting smiling. He used my camera of course.
So around 12 A.M. we all went to our rooms and crashed for the night, saying our good byes that night because i knew i was going home in the morning. I went with two of the guys to Hardee’s for breakfast the next morning and then I headed home.
