    Default Nude ?

    I am at a loss with the obsession with nudity.

    How many painters of the female form (nude) are female ?
    How many photographers of the female form (nude) are female ?

    It seems like a male thing. An obession. Want it so bad you have to paint it or show it everywhere.

    There are the few (artists ?) that will object. So be it.

    Describe to me how total nudity is more aluring than scantily dressed.

    If the whole world of people were naked from day one, would the obsession still be there
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    Why the fuss?

    Nude is also a subject like bees and birds what.

    It would not be the case since being nude is the norm and being clothed is the abnormal.

    Thus, if the day cometh where the whole world is nude, we would find obsession for women in clothes instead.

    Actually when we were created, we were meant to be naked and I am very sure we were primates .... , the only difference is that we are supposed to have a "bigger and more effective" brains.
    So if we were naked from day one, we would have "evolved" to look exactly like Orang Utans because of the outdoor elements, wind, sun, flies, etc.... and probably we were all be digging our partners noses, ears, asxholes, etc, exactly like what our cousins are doing in the zoo now ....
    To find out whether you will still be obsess with the naked females .... visit the zoo more often.

    ah well, everything is relative concept, id suppose. we want what we can't have. and since nudity is a something taught to us as "bad" or "shameful", we are naturally more curious about it than if we were told that nudity is okay and normal..

    In that case I think we'll be more obsessed with female gorillas with hairs all over their bodies.

    Perhaps if you turn the question around it would give a different perspective. Why should a nude photograph or painting etc be viewed or treated any differently from any other image? Who actually has the obsession with nudity?

    Female painters of female nudes? Some of the leading painters of nudes in China are women.And how about these:

    Female photographers who do female nudes? More than you think. Just one example,
    (No nudity on this page itself.)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suze_Randall

    Why is total nudity more alluring? Well, ask any painter of horses whether he or she finds it better to paint a "nude" horse or one covered by a blanket or medieval equine armour.

    People were naked from day one.

    As for the male obsession with female bodies, would it really be a good thing if men found women physically disgusting or of no more interest than a table or chair?

    Don't forget, SE.X sells. Ask any marketing personnel, and they will agree on this point.

    Sex attitude differences lie in brain

    DO MEN AND WOMEN THINK ABOUT SEX DIFFERENTLY?

    Brain scientists have confirmed what many have long debated -- and women have often complained about: Men do think about sex differently than women do.

    About a decade ago, brain scientists identified the part of the brain that is activated when men and women are faced with visual sexual stimuli. This part of the brain is the amygdala, which also controls emotions.

    In one study, magnetic resonance imaging was used to analyze brain patterns in 14 men and 14 women after they had viewed sexual material for 30 minutes.

    The amygdala was more strongly activated in the men, even though both sexes reported similar levels of interest in the images.

    Dr. Stephan Hamann, of the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience at Emory University in Atlanta, is the head of the study, published in Nature Neuroscience. He suggests such findings help explain gender differences in sexual behaviour. He adds, "If males and females found the pictures equally arousing, you would assume they would have similar patterns of brain activation. But we discovered the male brain seems to process visual sexual cues differently."

    Not really - a penis is a penis is a penis - it depends on what you do with it.

    Supposedly, most women are not visually stimulated by pictures of naked men.

    On the pornographic Magazine "PlayGirl" which featured erotic nude men, over 50% of its readers are homosexual males.

    If they are keen photobugs they'll shoot it to death from all angles and in all lighting conditions.
