Part of the naturist lifestyle is body acceptance. We all are somewhere on the spectrum of body types, as well as the spectrum of self body acceptance. One thing I love about this group is that we are all ages, all sizes, all skin tones, all levels of masculinity/femininity, etc. Ben Yahr has released a music video, where he poses in ways known globally by celebrities, in his own awesome way.

This piece was part of a collective exhibition that happened in Madrid back in 2006, as part of the 160th anniversary of Loewe brand. Framis proposed this series of images of 17 naked men to criticize the use and abuse of the feminine figure in advertising. The brand at first congratulated the artist, but few hours later, the piece was removed from the exhibition. 8 de junio libran las modelos, 8th june the female models are free, Madrid 2005 from Alicia Framis on Vimeo.

Shungaboy wants to paint, but even more so, he wants to be naked. The Men’s Naked Drawing Group, which Shungaboy founded, is a group of like-minded nudists who want a place to explore their art without judgment. In a small studio in SoHo, they do just that, meeting every two weeks to rediscover their naked selves. A New York resident who does not like to reveal his name, Shungaboy’s adopted moniker is borrowed from “Shunga,” the erotic art form of seventeenth-century Japan that inspires him. “The natural body is actually more attractive than the chiseled hunk,” Shungaboy says, which may as well be the motto of this accepting group of painters.
