hello all! I've been nude modelling for about a year now and over that time I've had mixed response, although most people are supportive I'd had a lot of comments about "how is your boyfriend okay with that? I wouldn't let my girlfriend flaunt her bits to the world!" and so on

anybody else had comments like this? and how do you deal with them?
do you find people are generally supportive or not?
also how do you nude models out there find partners feel about it?

Model's boyfriends tend to be with very supportive or very controlling.

Some people confuse nudity with immorality, including some people on the forums here. That is their problem, not yours. You will quickly find out who your real friends are. Keep the good ones and drop the rest.

I've heard it from some models, but not as much as the positives from most models. But photographers get the same sort of thing. A number of times people have asked me (and my girlfriend) "Is your girlfriend alright with you taking pictures of naked women?" (Even though I do more shoots at fashion/lingerie level than nude), and "I'm surprised your girlfriend hasn't complained/left you".

And no... nude modelling doesn't make you a slut.

I tend to find that the kind of people who throw words like "slut" around in regards to nude modelling, or even just wearing a short skirt on a night out, are the kind of people who are jealous as they can't do it for whatever reason...

Don't listen, as long as you are not hurting anyone, and you are happy then carry on doing what you want to do.
Shoes give me endorphins, endorphins make me happy, happy models don't stab photographers!

I totally agree with JennyWren. Be yourself and do what you want to do. It's your life and I'm sure the people who make such statements are just jealous and narrow minded. I wish you luck and happiness. Lenz.

Around this area even doing lingerie shoots will bring accusations of being a slut, particularly if the model and her "friends" are 18/19. the abuse some have had has been really awful and causes a lot of potential models to stop modelling. It is purely jealousy that is behind it and is so pathetic it isn't worth worrying about.

As Tarmoo said you will soon find who your true friends are, so don't give the others a second thought!

What's wrong with being a slut?

Hurray for Jade. My life has always been desparately short of sluts. So much so I am not sure what a slut is!
A little help is worth a lot of sympathy.

I'm not sure you can get a truly objective opinion by posting this question on a model/photographer networking site.
