Ok, I see a LOT of members posting nude pictures of themselves open for anyone to view in their Profiles. And that is both men and women. I also see where those nude ones are put in "friends only" albums. So.... obviously both ways are perfectly fine. With this in mind, I put ONE personal shot in my "friends only" album, but then decided to put that same one out in the open as well. HOWEVER, today I deleted it from in the open and kept it in the "friends only" album.

I guess what I am saying is that I am a bit torn on the matter. I am not ashamed of my body, or any part of it. But I am not sure which direction I want to (or should) go with all that.

What are everyone's thoughts on the matter?

Now with that in mind, I was told by one gal (she is wonderful, so this is NO slight against her) that she does not get into "dick shots".... yet she herself has "pussy and boob" shots for people to see. I hav NO problems with that, but it did make me scratch my head a little. LOL Again, she is great and I am not saying this as a slight or to "call her out" in any way. I even said the same thing to her, and if I remember right, she laughed and said it was true.

Again.... thoughts?

I don't care much for cock pics in public galleries. I'd keep them private if I were you My 2 cents

I have no problems showing off my body, but I like a degree of control. Any nude photo of mine would always be private, and I try to be selective as to who I add as friends.

I did have a picture of my breasts on my profile at one time, in a friends only gallery and a full body shot as my background. I've recently removed both. I'm sure the friends that did see them will remember them well.

You see I look at my "assets" and regard them as priceless, consequently, I don't give that part of myself away any more.

Regarding cock shots...... I'd rather see what that cock is attached to, posed in a sensual way, rather than a shot that says.... "come on baby, sit on this and fuck me".

Just myMy 2 cents

As I understand it Lush ladies usually post close-up shots of boobs/pussy because they get constantly asked by men and "women" to see them. Of course some just do it because they like to show off and they like the attention. Of course others just find a porn model to put up or worse put up some poor girl's private pics up that have found their way on to some sleazy ex-gf site in a bid to look more believable - you'd have thought tineye and reverse google image search would have stopped all of that but no.

I've never posted a cock shot and in all my time here I have never had a request to put one on my profile. I've had a very small number of requests to message a pic of it but they're still waiting

Ask yourself this question: Why do you want people to see you naked?

I used to have cock pics up and then I asked myself that question. My answer was, "I don't." I don't have a good body and I don't have an "impressive" penis; I'm not sexy (to look at anyway).

Everything you put out there will have an impression on what people think of you. I'm not against naked photos but it's not what expresses me on my profile. Use your profile to create the image of yourself you want people to see. Maybe that image is different for "friends" and the general public.

Honestly? Because I think it can help with any interactions. There are many types of interactions. And yes, I think I will keep "nude" pictures to a minimum, and may take them down from time to time, or rotate new ones. I appreciate your honesty though Clum, as I am sure others are as well.

I don't mind others seeing my naked pictures (no, I don't worry about guys seeing them either... that does not make me gay. It is a compliment no matter WHO finds you attractive or appealing.).... or my general clothed, shirtless, ones either.

Ok, I have surfed around a LOT here (I love to profile surf), and what I have found is that in spite of what folks posted above, the vast majority of people DO post nude in the open and that is both for men and women. And another thing I have found is that those who DO, tend to have the most "friends" here. HOWEVER.... I also find that it does not matter if you have a big cock, small cock, ugly cock, great cock, etc. the same women post the SAME comments about them all. Same with men to the women.

So... yeah, I think I will keep my nudes in the friend's only albums. If guys and gals want to see "more" of me, they can ask to be my friend. I would love to chat/cyber/cam/look at albums/photos with a lot of gals here, but frankly I do like to feel as if I am chosen, not just one of the "collection" if that made sense. LOL I would rather have some really great interactions with a few wonderful people, than to have a hundred friends who post the same comments on all the other pictures out there and really don't CHAT with me. And yes, I chat about things other than sex too. In fact, I have had some wonderful conversations with a few women here already...... and not really gotten into any hard sexual play. That, I am sure, will come soon enough.

Thanks for reading.... LOL Just letting my thoughts flow....

Sorry for waffling. Embarassed blah5

When I first joined Lush, and realised there were profiles, I was horrified and deeply embarassed! I couldn't believe the amount of nudey photos on not only walls, but in private albums.

I was stunned that there were people in the world who are confident to show themselves with their Happy Bits on full display. I was brought up to be modest and cover up. I cover up even more than my parents taught me anyway, for a couple of reasons.

I am absolutely in awe of anybody who is confident enough to show off their body. The furthest I went until just over two months ago was a cleavage shot with a gingerbread man in it, and then an even more daring one (for me) with a daisy in it.

Since I joined Lush, I have gained some confidence in my writing, and I decided I wanted to try and find some confidence in my size and body too. I have noticed several ladies not only my size, but bigger, post full-on Happy Bits and naked pictures of themselves. The feedback they get is lovely.

In the forums, however, it is a different matter. People generally want to see a certain size and shape, and ridicule people who are my size and shape when pictures of them are posted. Those poses that get laughed at would get wanked over if the body shown in it was what people on Lush overwhelmingly want to see.

The pictures that I dared to post are available only to a very small group of friends, in order for me to learn to be a little more confident about myself, and to discover where my boundaries are. I have pushed them way beyond what I dreamed I could manage. I even had to ask two girl mates to check if I was setting myself up for a fall before posting them. I didn't advertise their presence, either. They are there if those certain friends are interested enough to discover them.

I didn't do it for comments and ego-stroking. I just wanted to see if I could learn to feel sexy and more comfortable about the piece of crap I feel I am. There is only one picture I thought better of, and removed it. I was worrying about it, which was not the point. Boundary found.

I decided very recently that I don't want to explore my album further for fear of being ridiculed. I don't think that those people who have access to the album would say anything mean to me, but I know what they will be thinking, and it's too upsetting and worrisome to me to try and push myself any further.

I don't like to look at at personal pictures of other people, save to admire their confidence at a glance. I hardly ever comment on them either (I usually don't look that closely, as I find it excruciatingly embarassing).

I always feel that Happy Bits shots are... Odd. Like, what do you want me to say, when you ask me to comment (I refuse to look when I get asked to). Do you want me to lie and tell you I get turned on? I don't, I want to run away. Do you want me to compliment you on a piece of flesh nature gave you? "Wow, wonderful appendage you cannot alter there..."

I think it's wonderful that people feel happy to share their body, and wonderful that others like to look. Me? No thanks. I'm more interested in the character that flesh holds within it.
My 2 cents

Thank you for your honest post. It was refreshing and wonderful. I am glad they have not only a friends only option but also a select friends option. I would love to see your pictures and maybe some day I will be able to. I love beauty in a wide range of sizes and shapes, and no, plus size women are NOT NOT NOT NOT a problem for me. ;)

Again, thank you for your post. I LIKE REAL! :)

I'm not sure about posting pic of my naked body XD much to shy I think. But I like naked pics of everyone girls guys and such. I think if your comfy in your own skin and want to let everyone that is interested see, then its perfectly fine. Besides we're all adults. If you don't want to look you don't have to. If dick shots aren't your thing then don't look at them.

Fair enough question. I personally find amateur nude photos the height of bad taste and avoid people who post those kinds of pics, but then again I am old fashioned and believe that certain parts of the body should be reserved for special people's eyes only, as opposed to.. well... everyone's eyes.

I personally just hate the individuals that CONSTANTLY advertise their pics, nudes or not, and badger for comments on them. Wanna share? Share. Show-off? Outstanding - have a good time!

...but fucking leave it at that and let those that see it, enjoy it, and feel led to drop a comment do their thing. I never care if someone has ANY pics up, but I can't stand constantly being asked, reminded, told, messaged, badgered, joked with, or anything else to "comment on my pics!"

Thanks for the additional comments folks!

I am not in any way shy about myself, nude or otherwise, I just have decided to not have nudes for general viewing. And my friends get my general pictures which show my face and other interests... like my guitar. LOL

I too get annoyed at the need for people to always comment on pictures..... more so since let's be honest, big cock, little cock, no cock, the woman ALWAYS posts how HUGE IT IS and she wants to do X, Y, or Z to it. LOL Yeah, so we are to believe the comments made? LOL ;) I found THAT out real quick looking through profiles.

As for the model pictures.... yeah, that makes me shake my head too. More so when they change what model is supposed to be them in their galleries. By all means share what you like, but don't misrepresent yourself UNLESS your complete profile is pure fantasy (and I have a feeling a LOT are).

All my pictures are ME though. :)

Like many on here, I have my own collection that were viewable in private albums only and even then have always hand picked those who got to see which albums.
