I saw a thread earlier this week discussing as to why female nude photography is always positively commented on, seen as beautiful while male nude photography is seen to be perverted, unlikable, and all in all unwanted. This got me thinking. And I've been thinking about this for a while. I run a blog on tumblr that posts nude photography, male and female. And try as I might, I always have trouble finding artistic nudes of men, even when I search directly for "nude men", I get females. The internet is full of naked women, but basically no men. And if there ARE men, they're either hidden in the shadows (no crotch showing, no face showing), or they're not fully naked. To be honest, after seeing at least a 1000 photographs of nude women in the past couple of weeks, I found it quite boring, and even repulsive to see the same poses, the same-looking women all the time. (You know, the hour glass figure, perfect skin, etc.). So I started looking for "imperfect" more "natural" looking photographs. Again, hard to find. So here are the questions, discussion topics. Again, why is it that male nudity is not as celebrated by the society as much as female nudity? Why is it that nude men are either faceless or crotchless? (focusing mainly on the abs?) the above question, and also why is that female nude photography focuses mainly on the crotch? (a lot of the times, breasts are taken almost entirely out of picture, or are a minute part of the photograph) why is it that female nudes feature only "perfect" women, while most people (from what I know) love to see artistic nudes of any women? (overweight women get much much love) What is your preference? Male or female? (I'm not asking sexuality, I'm only asking about photography) What is your favorite part of the male/female body? and why? I'd like to point out that I'm looking for creative answers. And that for myself, preferring women in life, I prefer to look at nude men since I'm just sick of nude women. And power to all the users here that posted their pictures on the forum! I know it takes a lot to do that!
