Good evening all. First of all I would like to thank all those who read this as I know how valuable your time is. I am looking for honest opinions as regards to the few pictures I have within my portfolio as I would like to know what people think, how can I improve, and what sort of shoots should I consider myself for. Once again thank you for your time and remember, honesty is the best policy so ripe me apart if needs be

Umm, you might want to consider filling out your profile again, specifically your levels. I shouldn't imagine many male models model lingerie.

If you engage your brain you'll appreciate that 'lingerie' in the context of this site will be referring to underwear as a whole as the site has no substitute for men who join as models.  Often men may be cast to shoot the 'Calvin Klein' look, so perfectly reasonable to have this option selected.

I see no reason why male models can't model in skimpy frilly lingerie too, if they want to. There's probably a market for that kind of thing. Alex, the third shot (in the dark shirt) is good. Although we obviously we can't see your face. I'm afraid I'm not keen on the other two. The colour one is horribly overly-processed, and the hat shot looks awkward and forced. You need at least one good head shot, and a body shot, but these will come in time. Just keep shooting. And your photographer has a really nasty spec of dust in his camera. Good luck Dave

I did engage my brain, that's why I gave my constructive advice. The fact Warrior also states swimwear in his levels would obviously cover the underwear category for a male model. So YOU engage YOUR brain before coming on here and having a dig.

LoL, comparing swimwear to underwear is like comparing a bomber jacket to a blazer. They both cover the same parts of the anatomy but look completely different and perform a different function. For modelling, they are also different genres - you would look daft posing in swimwear in a bedroom or in underwear on a beach

In the Home Counties people usually have separate swimwear - perhaps they just wear their underclothes in Cornwall.
Maybe this little spat is down to cultural differences.

On a more constructive note, I think you need to have less hands, arms and elbows on show - they look awkward.

No, we have separate underwear and swimwear down here too. What I was trying to sax was that if a model has swimwear on his working levels, it's a given he'd be happy working in just underwear. But I'd expect nothing less than a sarky, snide comment from you, you're one of a clique of trolls on this site who just can't help yourselves.

Bloody hell.. I would be surprised if the OP actually bothered to come back here. Lingerie to me anyway is for either sex - apparently that is also wiki so it must be right. He asked for opinions/advice on his modelling. To the OP - My advice would depend entirely on what you wanted to get out of modelling - Are you wanting to make a hobby out of it or a career? If its a career then I'm not sure purestorm is really the right place to "earn" as a male model. If you are looking for develop then my suggestions is to look around at other internet based male models, find some that have similar statistics/looks to yourself and see who they work with. When i started out I tried every style I possibly could and I don't think I would have predicted hat 6/7 years later i would be an artnude model. Just get out there and see what you enjoy, your 'style" really does find you. Good luck

Here YOU go - Oxford English Dictionary: lingerie, noun, women's underwear and nightclothes.


I don't mean to be a bitch but honestly who the f$%k cares? 

People know what "lingerie" levels would be for a male model (apart from you). Give it up!

Sorry to take this thread even further off course, but this is just plain wrong and needs to be corrected. There are plenty of models who will model swimwear which is seen as outfits that the public could normally see but will not model underwear as that is something only partners and doctors may see.

Particularly if the underwear is of an erotic nature.

Underwear is meant to be worn under other garments where as swimwear is an outer garment. There is a fundemental difference between the two types of garment

I f**king care when I give what I think good advice, only to be pounced on by PS's resident trolls. I'm more than happy for Red Checker to make a point or counter argument. But when he starts it with the engage brain comment, wtf am I meant to do - just accept it? The same with Sullen Faeces; if he wants to disagree with what I said, fine. But leave out the sarky comment about you may do that in Cornwall, but here in the Home Counties.... My initial post in response to Warrior's OP was made in all sincerity, whether I was right or not. If people can't give responses without having a dig or trying to belittle people, then don't be surprised if some bite back.

The point I was trying to make was that if a male model's happy to pose in, say, a pair of Speedos, he's hardly likely to come over all coy if asked to model, say, a pair of Calvin Kleins.
