Do you remember taking your first nude? I can fondly recall the moment when I did, and it never made the cut (to be shared with anyone). Now that I think, it wasn’t entirely because of my insecurities about my appearance, I just thought it was the greatest sin I’ll ever commit – that’s how ashamed I felt about showing off my naked body.
Blame it on the way you’ve been conditioned to look at your body or your bits down there, but my journey of embracing my body began when I took my first steps toward the tasteful art of taking nudes. Yes, you read that right: Taking nudes is an art, and unlike the other forms, everyone who wishes to, has the potential to become an artist!
Whether you’re a self-proclaimed master of clicking the perfect nude, or still navigating your way searching for the right angle, you’ll find a little something for everyone here. After all, we, at That Sassy Thing, are stocked up on an exciting array of pleasure goodies (intimate massagers, FTW!) designed for all bodies, ages, and genders!
Everyone deserves to own their sexuality and feel desired. And, allow me to quote Moira Rose, ‘taking a thousand naked pictures of yourself’ is a big part of that experience for many folks, including myself.
So, let’s get started with getting you outta your shell (and clothes maybe?).
Let’s Get You Set Up
First things first, check-in with yourself about a few things. The list includes how are you feeling about your body, whether or not you have a safe space to take a few pictures and if it's just for your eyes only, or you wish to share the same with a partner. It's important to be more in tuned with your needs, so that when the occasion arises, and you feel in the mood, you're all set to channel your inner boudoir artist!
Lights, Camera, Action
Lighting really helps to take your naughty selfies to level ooh-la-la. Soft lighting, such as yellow lights, help bring out some unique perspectives in your photos. If you're feeling lucky, you can even use a colored light such as the red light to add the right amount of zing and spice to your nudies.
Next, don't forget to play around with your filters and camera before you press the big shoot button. You can even take short videos, or collage a sexy progression of stripping off that tee (some food for thought)!
Pro Tip: Don't forget to try some shadow play!
The Mirror, The Merrier
If you have a mirror, great! The size doesn't matter, as long as your intentions are in the right place (to feel hot and happening). Align your body and pose in a way that it flexes your curves and silhouettes, which adds to the fervor. Even if you don't have a mirror, use the selfie camera while sitting or lying on your bed and taking some exciting bootie pics, if you must!
Safety Comes First
While storing your images, ensure you keep them in a hidden folder or assign a passcode to the same. You can even prevent backup for these images so that they don't reach your cloud storage, for an added layer of privacy and protection.
Your Body, Your Rules, Your Nudes
In the end, whether you wish to indulge in a nudie sesh to share it with a partner or just to feel yourself up, you do you! As long as you're having fun, feeling sexy, being safe and responsible about your privacy, it's all good.
To be able to feel confident about how we look or love our bodies is a lifelong journey, and if taking your nudes helps you get there, I say, take another one! Speaking of, we've got a discreet, super cute, and body-safe range of personal massagers that have made over 10,000 people (and, counting) feel comfortable about their pleasure and that of their partners. Check it out while you're at it *click-click*.
