Naked on the Nile

Nude model thrown in jail like a Dog

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!

YES, this is my female body. NO I am not ashamed

Previous this week my photos from the album I had created on Facebook and called:

“Celebration of the beautiful – natural, naked – woman body”
got reported to Facebook security.

The next time I tried to lock into my account I could not.

Instead I was a given a warning from Facebook.

“Remove any violating photos” It said.

Either you delete all photos containing any nudity, or we will delete your Facebook account.

Not surprisingly.

I knew it was a matter of time before my photos would be reported.

I know Facebooks guidelines concerning nudity. I know many artists whom in the past have been trying to share their work (photos, videos etc) of the naked human body with their network on Facebook – but with same result as my attempt had.

A couple of years ago the Danish writer Peter Øvig…

Nude in the Woods.

So on Friday i finally decided to do it.  I went to the wooded area that I have been walking for the past few days and get nude!

I was very nervous at first, mainly because the usual small crowd of guys were there and they were making jokes about me taking pictures with my camera.  But as i left them and walked a for a good bit, my nervousness faded as i realized they wouldn’t walk as far as i was going to.  So i soon found my spot and i disrobed.

I had brought the camera with me to photograph my first time in the nude outdoors.  Until this moment i had only been nude outside in the back yard in the middle of the night, or to dump trash in the garbage can at the end of my driveway in the front yard.  Never before have i been nude in such a public area.

The sun felt great on my skin and so did the slight breeze that blew in the woods.  Although i was nude only for a few minutes per shot it was a gratifying experience none the less.

I truly wanted to be completely nude and walk around, but i had a camera, a tripod, and a mp3 player to carry so i knew i wouldn’t be able to walk around totally nude and carry all of those things in a area i was totally new to so i stayed clothed as i would move through the trail.  I would only disrobe for the pictures.

I had to keep on my shoes for this last set of photos due to prickly gumballs and other hazards, but i enjoyed myself none the less.  The sun and the freedom felt great, but i was still kinda nervous at times.  After i took all the pictures i wanted i decided to head back mainly because i wanted to come back the next day.

I guess I will go back tomorrow and I’ll disrobe and walk the trail itself in the nude for a while.  No camera or much else when i go this time.  But I’ll have to figure out how to carry my keys, mp3 player, and cell phone with me.  Heck!  Come to think of it, how will i carry my clothes once i take them off?  Okay this may present a challenge of grand proportions after all.  Either way though i am going to get nude and outdoors as often as possible now.  I enjoyed just the few minutes too much and now i may be hooked.

Stolen Innocence.

Well today i was checking around a few places that i follow and i saw a picture so i clicked on a link.  Which lead me to another link, and to another link which lead me to a quasi porn site on Tumblr.

Now i used to blame the porn industry for this, but now i realize i may need to apologize to said industry.  This isn’t the porn industry that is doing this.  Its normal every day people who are taking the pictures we post on Tumblr or WordPress, or where ever and putting them on their softcore porn blogs.  Sometimes with credit links, sometimes without.  Then said picture gets linked or reblogged to at least 50 plus Tumblr sites in a matter of hours or days.

Now the picture was from Naturist Fab’s tumblr page, and after i did some investigation at least 20 other sites had reblogged his innocent picture.  The tumblr site that originally stole the picture is called “The Naturist Guys”.  The site is splattered with pictures from numerous naturist sites and tumblrs as well as obvious pictures of gay male porn.  So its become obvious now that Tumblr is a major threat to our privacy as nudists.  I just want to advise everyone to be careful and i may add more to this post, but i am pressed for time because as i write this i need to leave for work.  But one last thing.

On a much more personal note I will say that i am not trying to shame NF in any form or fashion.  I almost posted the link to The Naturist Guys tumblr page and the picture they stole.  But i felt that my friend NF had been abused enough so i decided not to do so.  To be honest i rarely visit blog because i can get everything through my WP reader.  And i had no idea he had a tumblr page until this morning.  Sorry NF.  I hope i haven’t caused you any trouble.  I just wanted to make you and others aware of the threats we face via the growing stupidity of pervs and morons on the internet.

Invasion of the glamor shot aliens

Formerly clothes free life visit our new home clothesfreelife.com

In the the first Men in Black movie Will Smith’s character discovers that “all models are aliens.”  In the most recent MIB he tells us that those model aliens are from the planet Glamoria. We laugh because it is such a out of whack train of thought. Sure models are different but aliens nah!

Still that seems to be the trend in thinking for a recent spate of criticisms flying through the online nudie community.  The criticism goes like this. Glamor shots regardless of whether they are indoor or outdoor are not naturist because they are staged and posed. They are not nudists because the models are all perfect looking “photoshopped beasties from the planet Glamoria.”They don’t represent real people with real bodies.
