    In a recent thread a man made a suggestion to a young female member here to post some pictures of herself in the gallery in an effort to boost her confidence. That got me to thinking about how I felt when I posted pics and how it effected me beyond the initial rush of doing it.

    For me, posting pictures of myself brings with it a flurry of emotions. At first I just feel reckless and wild about it. All I can think is, "Wow, I am so very brave and hot."

    After the initial rush I think, " Oh shit, I can't beleive I just did that!'

    I almost always delete the pics within hours of posting them. Others have lasted a few days before I get rid of them.

    I'm not sure if I feel like its a long lasting confidence booster of any sort. It's more like I'm double dog daring myself to do it and I'm giddy with the courage I have when I take my own dare.

    As for feedback from other members, I take it with a grain of salt because this place is full of horn dogs that would fuck a tree if there were a hole in it. Not exactly a hard to please crowd. :lol

    So, for those of you that have posted pictures on the internet, how did it make you feel?

    Well, I've not posted myself other than my face-I'm really just not confident enough to post my whole body. That said, if I were, I'd post in the gallery here-I mean, why not? There are a lot of pictures on the internet, and I just think it depends on what type of a person you are on how you feel about it.

    I used to post pictures... me drag racing, me catching a fish at the beach, flowers in the yard, my dick with precum sliding down the shaft.:eyes But I got paranoid and removed them after I got a pm from an old member that had angrily left amongst bad wishes for the forum; and it was sent from my own SF account. She had hacked my password. Oddly, I had never had direct social intercourse with her, but I changed my PW and pulled all the pictures down.

    I'll post some yard foliage when it fills out.

    Well, at least I got to see those pics before you took em' down, HR. ;)
    Seriously, I'm sorry that happened to you. That's fucked up.

    When I posted the first nude photos of myself here on SF I too underwent the same initial rush of "This is fucking hot!" It was an extension of my sexual exploration and it was fun, now after I have been doing it for a while ...it still is. :)

    I enjoy posting the images, I enjoy the feeling of putting myself out there, and I enjoy the comments I get on the photos.

    I find it all to be fun and sexy.

    I was extremely nervous when I first posted a photo.... and I still get nervous... The big problem I find is trying to post something fresh and a bit different than the last post...

    Ditto, Nobody. I don't post many pics these days, but I do enjoy posting them, and reading the feedback I get. I do take it with a grain of salt, after all you're my friends here and I know many of you are just being supportive. But it does feel good all the same. I have posted pics of my face, but I feel that they're disguised enough that nobody would ever recognize me from the pics. I had posted them, then taken them back down, only to change my mind again and put them back up.

    However, posting photos like that is a very personal choice, and I would never, ever pressure someone into doing it.

    I've never posted pictures of myself nude on the internet, or even regular pictures of me in an open forum other than myspace or facebook.

    I have, however, shared pictures of myself and my wife with individual folks on the net that I've talked to privately. Again, these aren't nudes, but I have shared some of my wife's modeling pictures which can be pretty hot.

    Even then it is still a bit of a rush, particularly if you've had any sort of sexual topic discussion with that person because then you're letting them in and dropping the veil as it were, and there is always the risk that the world is a small place and they do know one of us, and that you're trusting them not to post it openly on whatever forum it is or distribute it.

    Normally its worked out perfectly fine, and to date no one I know of has re-posted anything, though a guy on one forum I post on would not shut up about how badly he wanted to fuck my wife after he saw some of her pictures, and he felt the need to bring it up or tease me in some way with the fact that he had seen her in just about every thread I posted in for a while, which got a little annoying over time.

    I don't think I've ever really shared pictures of myself or my wife with anyone on here, just because it hasn't come up in the few private message conversations I've had.

    I've posted pics of myself on various places in the WWW and the first time I did it I got the BIGGEST rush... slowly over time the rush has subsided to the point that it actually got annoying... people requesting certain pics... people wanting private personal pics, people saying that they wanted different types of pics, people even PMing me and telling me derogative things about my husband when I've posted couple pics.

    My good iFriends also have access to my FB account so they know what the face looks like.

    I don't really take pics anymore.... every now and then I take some and send them to my gorgeous husband.

    lol i have no problem with people seeing my body really I'm more worried about it getting around too much if anyone where to recognize me. I used to love to cam and stuff but ever since the end of college I've heard so many internet horror stories i'm weary of letting personal info slip. Also, i want to join the entertainment industry (as a cartoonist) ,but i think I'm not quite famous enough for a sex tape just yet.

    I've occasionally wondered what I'd do if I did come across photos of someone I knew nekkid on the interwebs. It would be pretty hard to casually drop it into everyday conversation "So I was jerking off to hardcore internet porn last night and guess what I came across a photo of?"

    For the people that put stuff up and then took them down again, are the horror stories deedee mentioned the reason you took them down? (I'm just bitter because I didn't get to see them first)

    I look forward to the scott adams, gary larson and deedee threesome video getting leaked to the internet :)

    I get what you are saying but others may repost those pictures years later. That young insecure girl may have a grandson looking at her pics some day!!

    Hmm, gee, now I wonder if my future grandson will see pics of my pussy and know it's grandma. :lol

    Really, women, and men, that post pics of their genitalia AND show their face are just plain stupid, IMHO.

    I thought of it because I show my face (never nude too old for that) on a few forums and my grandsons are old enough to be going there now.

    Hmmm...I just joined here and I don't know how I feel about posting my pics. I think I'd enjoy hearing some comments...or am I just setting myself up for disappointment?

    After I joined, I got to know everyone and vise versa before I finally posted some. That way everyone had a little better context or knew better who they were seeing.
    Others are comfortable putting them out there early. But so far, for me, nobody has said, EWWW, Stop doing that.:eyes Most of us are fairly ordinary people, so you're pretty safe.
    Then again, as they say; if you wouldn't want to see it on a billboard...:lol
