No, i wasn't kidding. A very, very small fraction of the population have the kinds of physiques which would make them candidates for nude photos. Most of us, however, are only going to be attractive while in the nude to those who are already attracted to us for other reasons. In such a case, they should come look in person and in private. Anyone who is spreading photos of themselves in the nude by electronic means is an idiot. Even if one could allege that one is a member of the tiny minority whose physiques are suitable for nude photos, it would be stupid to be spreading them around electronically for free. If you're that hot, you can sell 'em.
While it might be utterly insane to spread photos of ones self around on the Internet, many have done it and they have done it freely and without concern (which makes me question their sanity considering how these things can then spread around the Internet to other places than where first posted). There are all sorts. Classic model types, who are young with well defined features. Older and older and downright OLD. Thin, overweight, frighteningly obese (frighteningly as in concern for their health), hairy, not hairy. Every hair plucked or waxed off the body. Tattooed, scars, piercings, etc. etc.
There's never been a desire in me to take a picture of myself nude, much less send any out. To the best of my knowledge nobody has ever taken any pictures of me nude...not even as a baby. If someone had a camera out and was preparing to do so, I'd stop them. In this day and age of cellphones equipped with cameras it is sadly easier than ever for this sort of thing to be done. Many have allowed the pictures to be taken by their lover/spouse/whatever and when things have gone sour have soon learned their image is floating around on the Internet.
This doesn't indicate a problem with being viewed nude. It has happened and at the most awkward times. Well, only once was really awkward. When I slipped and fell in the tub, July 2009, my neighbor came up and got me back up (I have a phone by the tub). I didn't feel the least bit uncomfortable, my body is far from perfect, and at that time I had a fairly fresh scar on my stomach; but, it wasn't an issue. So there I stood, we were talking and after a time I apologized for still being unclothed. At any rate, it's my body, damn well better be comfortable with it. Others had better be good with theirs as well. My memorial service, once I am dead will be clothing optional, this has already been discussed with a good friend of mine.
At any rate, who are we to decide if a person has a body which is going to be attractive enough for others? If a person feels comfortable and wants to display, that's their business not mine. Of course they might want to think down the road, when they land a nice job, sign morals clauses contracts and the photos then surface. Odds are that Withee's photo was snagged by somebody and will end up resurfacing in the future. It takes only that split second for it to become a world property.
