Contrary to how some people see it as more normal for a woman to take nude photos for a man, today things have evolved because men now want to be more involved in the “sexting” with their intimate partner. According to Wikipedia, sexting is a more recent term that has been used since August 2012. Despite this, there are still men who do not see themselves taking pictures that are really suitable to send to women, because they usually want to receive them from the woman in their lives, or at times it is a woman that finds it appropriate to share their sexy photos to the man in their lives.
In a relationship between men and women, it is rare today not to find a couple that talks about how they like to send or receive nude photos. So, the society column in MagHaïti decided to investigate the subject and to have its own part of understanding. It was found that every person interviewed on the subject reported that “there are some very different ways a person can see and understand “nude photos” and that is why there are men who decide to leave their egos behind and say yes, by starting to share them with the people they are in a relationship with. A medical student named Rivelino, who himself declares that he has no problem sharing his sexy photo with a woman, although many people see it as wrong. For him, “sexy photos” are a means to strengthen the bond of two people who are together. He goes even further to say that he likes to impress girls with these pictures.
I like to do this, I like to surprise my friends too. I even send them to my friends through the WhatsApp application. Once I activated the setting of “View Once” where a receiver cannot see the photo twice before it could disappear. And that happens immediately after the person who received the photo made a digital reaction to the photo, says Rivelino.
Jeff, who is a young basketball player, says he prefers to receive nude photos rather than send them, but that does not stop him from always taking pictures that he keeps on his phone, just in case his girlfriend asks him to have one, so that he could send them to her. According to Jeff, it signifies a lot in the bonding phase of a relationship.
“I am one of those guys who likes to receive nude photos instead of sending mine. But I also like to have them on my phone, because these nudes represent a masterpiece of me. This exchange can be good, it creates excitement between two people in a relationship, especially if they are in a long-distance relationship” says Jeff.
However, Andy’s position is different from Rivelino’s and Jeff. “I do not like to take pictures that could in any way be viewed as explicitly sexual” although he is not against those that exchange them”.
There are some things women find interesting in me
In discussing this topic, we often hear men saying that “nude contents” do not just mean sexy, it could also mean funny photos or videos. While some men say that there is no part of their body that can interest a woman. It is the same for Andy and Jeff, who think that sexy photos by men should be taken differently than those taken by women.
“For example, maybe men should take photos that emphasize their collarbones, or even their shoulders. Contrary to how women can show their cleavage or sometimes their lips and neck” suggests Andy, another participant in the conversation.
“Sometimes I have in my mind that women will not be interested in other parts than the chest area, because many times women like men who look strong in that part. Women always have these kinds of judgments about men. I know this because I often send these types of pictures to my girlfriend, any time before I get in a bathroom bath” says Jeff.
However, for Rivelino, taking sexy photos or videos is not that simple. He says that he always has questions for himself about how to take the photo, rather it will be (a left or right angle, in black and white or color). He likes to have beautiful and attractive photos as a means to arouse appreciation in the woman who receives his photo. Rivelino also makes it clear that when he receives a photo request from a woman to send a photo to that woman, it is something that he welcomes and finds these requests to be a privilege.
Therefore, the desire to take or receive photos can be great sensations, while remembering the respect for what he brings to himself. The first thing is to realize that everyone he meets is more likely than not to exchange pictures. As long as these photos are not too vulgar, they can classically emphasize a sexy part of a person’s body. These things can be art, when done well. That is why pornographic content makes him feel uncomfortable, Rivelino said.
Women understand when it is not reciprocated for men to send nude photos
A 25-year-old woman named Lova, who was in conversation with another woman, expresses her frustration, because the man in her life prefers to receive her photos instead of sending her any of himself. Throughout the discussion, Lova says that she likes taking sexy photos as much as she likes it when her man takes the time to take pictures that are sent to her without any hassle or asking too many questions. But it is hard for her to convince her man that she likes to receive photos of him too.
Lova feels that men think just the photo of a man’s reproductive organs which is interesting to a woman in a photo. But Lova feels there is no such thing, because according to her man who finds it difficult to send her nude photos, men can have other parts of their bodies that may excite women.
It seems strange when I say that a woman needs sexy pictures of men too, because some people say that there is no place that can be more interesting from a woman to a man’s body. While analyzing how a man can take a nude photo, men do not need to take completely nude photos. Men are likely to look sexy if they are photographed in full boxer briefs or jogger pants. They do not need too many poses or facial expressions to show that they are physically sexy. This is all about showing their strong masculinity. Considering that for women, they are more interested in showing the soft side of the feminine parts of their bodies.
In another conversation with a 24-year-old businesswoman named Ingrid Ériveaux. She tells the magazine that she has no problem with men sending her genital photos. This also proves to her that the man is confident with what he has, and especially also knows what to do with it. Ériveaux later emphasizes, there are men who just by looking at their bodies, it is an excitement.
“There are men whose bodies look like those strong bodyguards you see on television and just by looking at them they can turn someone on. To send pictures of their genitals, I am not saying this part is entirely interesting, but sometimes it requires skill to be able to do this. When looking at the chest, some of them are like architectural structures like. It is like looking at a marble sculpture“, for example The Farnese Hercules by Lysippos, from the 3rd century BC.
