Warning: This post contains full-frontal male nudity and may be inappropriate for work environments. Sure, depicting a naked body can lead to objectification and sexualization as women can surely attest. But a powerful nude representation also has the power to be empowering, liberating, and, of course, beautiful. In , photographer Abigail Ekue embarked on a mission to photograph the unclothed male body in a truthful, expressive and direct manner, a style Ekue saw was lacking in the larger cultural lexicon. Her project is open to all men over 21, including trans men, regardless of race, body type, tattoos, piercings, or whatever else. From the start, it was important to Ekue that she capture the entire male form from head to toe, so the images resist becoming either too sexualized or too romanticized. She wanted a real person, desirable yet flawed, as we all are.

To conduct the study , Johnstonbaugh, a sociology doctoral student, had more than 1, college students from seven universities fill out an online survey asking them about their rationale for sexting. But the odds were four times higher for women than men to say that they sent a nude in order to prevent the recipient from losing interest or to prevent the person from looking at images of others. I sent one. Women were twice as likely as men to say they sent a sexy pic to boost their confidence. So sometimes, sending nudes is a way to assert sexual agency. Desire emerges in response to, rather than in anticipation of, sex. If a man feels entitled to a nude pic, the act of sending one understandably feels transactional and a bit cheap.

Clothed male, naked female CMNF , or clothed male, nude female , is female nudity in which one or more women are nude while one or more men are clothed. Entertainment columnist Earl Wilson details several experiences involving one-sided female nudity in his book Show Business Laid Bare. Depending on local laws, female nudity of some level is to be found at nude body painting events such as Fantasy Fest , sex shows , strip clubs , and in adult-only public events like Folsom Street Fair , Nudes-A-Poppin' , etc. In classical antiquity , the portrayal of nude male form in art including the exposure of genitals was considered to be more acceptable than that of the naked female form. By the renaissance, this view had reversed. One-sided female nudity has been a theme in art, particularly in Orientalist paintings of the 19th century. A typical scene may be a depiction of white slavery in which one or several nude female slaves are displayed before an audience of men at a slave market. The odalisque harem scene was also a popular subject for depicting one-sided female nudity, although the clothed figures in the scene were not always male. Outside of the Orientalist style, a scenario for one-sided female nudity in 19th-century art was the knight-errant, in which the damsel in distress was used to explore the erotic subtext of the powerful knight coming to the rescue of a helpless woman.
