Helpful links for nude and erotic photographers

"Good art grabs your attention. Great art holds onto it."
"A competent critic doesn't merely react but responds to a piece of art."
"Erotica is the art of sex, without sex."

I am an open-minded and liberated individual with an intriguing mix of masculine and feminine characteristics. I am a practicing nudist and a sex-positive artist, with an interest in blues and rock guitar. I worship youth and femininity, and delight in taking pictures of myself when other models aren't forthcoming.

As a socially-conscious artist, I seek to confront and examine issues related to nudity, gender, and sexuality via the medium of self-portrait photography. I start by challenging the preconceived notions that nudity is private, gender is rigid, and sex is ugly, and see where that leads me.

There is much beauty and intrigue in the process of becoming, that whispers of the mystery of creation itself. It is neither strange nor uncommon for one to become transfixed by it.

A camera is a tool that can be used to either document, or present. A document is merely a record, and is only as interesting as the thing it is documenting. A presentation is a piece of art, that can make even dull things interesting to look at. But the best photographs are presentations that document something interesting.

I dedicate myself to holding erotic works up to the standards of fine art. However, I don't believe there is any utility in disparaging the chaff for the sake of the wheat. Even erotic artists have to start somewhere. And outstanding art, by definition, can only exist as an exception to the common pool of average works. Without constant reference to the banal, we'd lose our appreciation for the sublime. You see, bad art has a purpose - it makes good art even better!

6 Steps to a Nuder You!
(an instructional guide for aspiring nudists)

Bed Sheets by zharth

Step 1: Sleep naked. It's comfy, it's private, and most people spend about a third of their lifetime in bed. (If you're sharing a room, you can always slip off your shorts after you climb under the covers - this is what I did in college when I had a roommate). Advanced: Waking up naked is a great way to start the day. If you have enough privacy in your home, try not to get dressed until after you've had your breakfast.

Drying Outtake by zharth

Step 2: Delay getting dressed after a shower or bath. Bathing is one of the few activities that even textiles do naked. And it doesn't make sense to get dressed while your skin is still damp. Use this as an excuse to stay naked longer. At the very least, you can wrap a towel around your body, or wear a loose-fitting robe.

Step 3: Designate any private, personal space you have to be clothing optional. If you live alone, there's nothing stopping you from roaming the house or apartment nude (you can close the blinds for privacy, or just take your chances). If not, then you may still be able to hang out in your bedroom without wearing clothes. Unless you're sharing a room, other people should at the very least respect this request, even if they demand you cover up when in the presence of others.

Conversations With A Nudist (Part 1) by zharth

Step 4: Propose a clothing optional household. If you do not live alone, then once you are more comfortable being naked on your own, you should consider discussing this with your other housemates (if it hasn't already come up). You might also want to consider talking to your friends about nudism. They don't have to join you in taking off their clothes, you're just asking them if they would mind you being nude in front of them. They might say no, but it's worth asking, because they might also say yes. Maybe they've secretly been wanting to give it a try themselves. Or, maybe after seeing how much you enjoy it, and that it's not a big deal, they'll start to join in, too. If not, then at least it won't be a shock if they ever accidentally walk in on you naked, and you can stop feeling like you're holding onto a shameful secret.

Running Through The Sprinkler by zharth

Step 5: Take your nudity outdoors. Depending on where you live, this might be difficult to achieve. If you have a yard that's private, then choose a good time (like when your housemates are not home, if they're not on board with your nudism), and go outside and soak up some sun. Try doing some yard work, or toss a ball around, or play with the garden hose. If your yard is not private enough to avoid being seen by neighbors, try slipping out under the cover of night, just to feel the open air on your skin. This would be a good time to broach the subject of nudism with your neighbors - to see if they would mind you going nude on your own property. But use discretion - based on who you live next to, and what your relationship with them is, it might be better just to keep this to yourself. As a last resort, you can try hiking nude in a forest, or going skinny dipping in a river or lake. Just be careful about encountering other people - the farther from civilization you get, the better your chances will be - and stay safe!

Naked House Party by zharth

Step 6: Visit a nude beach, camp, or resort. If you can't go naked in your home, and don't have a private yard, this might be your only recourse to nude recreation. And if you do, this will still be your introduction to a whole lifestyle where you'll likely make new friends who share your interest in casual nudity. Search the web for nudist-friendly locations in your area, then plan a trip. Even if you're a single male, there are options out there for you. Different destinations will have different amenities, activities, a different atmosphere, and may attract different crowds. Do some research, and talk to other nudists online. But most importantly, work up your courage to take the plunge. I guarantee you won't regret it.

If you've made it this far, then congratulations, you are a nudist! Welcome to the club. :-)
