    Default Why do women pose naked?

    Look I can understand tasteful nudity and people oding it for art sake... I personally wouldn't but can totaly understand. Recently I was in the newsagency and saw a picture magazine with a girl on the front that I just know of from around the brisbane music scene. Later my DP told me a guy we know brought it into his shop to show them all and laugh about her. He also posted it on another forum and every guy was just making fun of her. Everyone from the scene has been laughing and talking about her men and women a like and I have heard the word s*** used by several of them.

    It made think why on earth would anyone pose nude especially for a magazine like picture. Of course everyone you know would be laughing at you not envying your position. No males I know actually think think that what she did was attractive and they think she is disgusting. I can't imagine that they would pay very much money either. So why do you think some women do something that is so humiliating for them. I don't know if she is humiliated or doesn't care but I would be humiliated by something like that.

    I actually think that women who pose on the cover of mens magazines have low self esteem. They know they are pysically attractive but inside they feel worthless, so they seek reassurance of their worth. I suppose they equate their pysical self with worth. It's similar to stripping maybe?

    It's really quite sad.

    Of course it is completely different to other types of nudity. Sometimes nude pictures are just a celebration of the feminine form, of being a woman.

    But certainly posing specifically for men to ogle in compromising positions and with "come hither" expressions shows vulnerability not good self esteem.

    Thats JMO. Can't pretend I know what is inside other womens heads.

    I couldn't imagine that women who expose themselves in provocative ways would be doing it because they felt confident in themselves. I wont try and imagine what they are really thinking but to me, a woman who is truly in touch with herself and feels worthwhile would never disrespect her body and give it away to thousands of men/women to gawk at. I would imagine someone with confidence and high self esteem would protect what is hers and share it only with those she wanted to.
    I never quite understood that industry.

    So you think that ppl think this is flattering. I know myself if I did that I would be the laughing stock amongst the people we know so are they not aware its humiliating?

    I know that if i did it i would be a laughing stock too. I know a few years ago a male friend of mine discovered a girl he knew in a nudey mag and he thought it was hilarious - he actually said it was a shame because she was attractive but it turned him off that she would pose nude.
    I think maybe they just have low self esteem and don't really consider how it may be humiliating - or just don't care?

    How's the serenity?

    I think it's a matter of taking whatever they can get.

    Even though some men think it's "disgusting" (to use your words)...a lot of men buy the magazines to look at the women and many do find them sexy. Even though they probably don't respect the woman and would never date her or love her, they still look and find her sexy.

    I guess their self esteem is so low that they will take any "compliment" they can get. The compliment of being drooled over....

    Why is society so opposed to nudity? Some women feel worthless while others feel empowered, others like the money as well.

    This isn't a new thing. Think of Roman times when nudity and sex weren't held in such a low regard as it is today. It was far more celebrated, and they weren't known as "whores" or "sluts".

    And I don't have the highest self-esteem, but I won't pose nude, not because I am on some moral high ground, but because I don't want to expose my flabby stomach to anyone.

    But if someone is proud of themselves, why shouldn't they show it off?

    Probably because they get payed for it too. Some people just want to make money and there can be alot of money in that 'industry'.

    I don't want to generalise but the picture I get of my head of guys who read picture magazine are not of the highest moral fibre. I hate it when those kind of men whistle at me let alone know they would be looking at my bits gah. Like mothersmilk said about this woman she really isn't unattractive but because she does this every guy in the local scene thinks she is unattractive.
