Default [Sex+Porn] Why do you model?

Well it appears the majority of posters here (unless im unable to view a number of threads) are models on the site, so this seems like a good place to ask exactly why you decided to post your naked bodies on the internet? Don't get me wrong, theres certianly nothing wrong with that, i met my fiancee by trading nudies on the net, but im interested in other opinions and reasons...

Was it to counter negative images you found offensive in porn by adding your own 'constructive' porn? Is it a thrill to see yourself naked where others can too knowing that most likely multiple people have had multiple orgasms to your photographs? Was the money a factor or is it just an added bonus? Please, enlighten me

I do what I do for a number of reasons.

I'm a very sexually open person and naturally exhibitionistic, and to me, it seems like an extremely logical career choice. I know that it's cliche to advise people to do what they love, find a way to make a living at it, but it was very true for me. I love having the best job in the world, and I don't think there's anything wrong with making money with selling sex in some form or the other. I like the idea of "living forever", in a way, via the fact that my images will be out there for people to enjoy long after I'm gone. Some people like to "live forever" via their children, but I like to do it through getting people off.

I'm happy to be creating my own porn and promoting porn made by others that is different than what you can find in the mainstream. I like showing a wide range of human body types, gender expressions, and sexual styles, and I think it's a good thing that anyone nowadays can produce their own porn according to their own interests. Sure, the majority will probably always want the stereotypical "porn star", but I'm glad to cater to the bizarre minority of oddballs that like what I like.

On a tangent, you'd be surprised by what I consider "offensive" when it comes to smut.

I can't stand the emerging "porn for women" genre, because it takes female sexuality back about 50 years. "Porn for women" (heterosexual women only!) focuses on romance and soft-focus images of kissing, and puts forth the idea that in order for women to be aroused, a sexual situation must be framed in terms of love and affection and cuddling. Now, I like snuggling as much as any person, but it's intensely offensive to me to suggest that women are such delicate little flowers that they can't handle sex without it being about love. That, to me, is exactly the sort of mentality sex-positive feminism has been fighting against. I don't need romance and stupid contrived story lines to get wet- and I like to see *fucking*. ("Porn for women" rarely features shots of penetration and male orgasm and other things that supposedly frighten women.) Also, "porn for women" is just as bad as mainstream male porn is the type of body images it promotes- oiled up beefcake guys with muscles, who generally look like they were photographed more than 10 years ago for some gay porn mag. One of the big "porn for women" site owners once wrote on a webmaster board that she selects content for her site by buying generic couples/guy content and then taking out all the explicit photos and writing lovey romance introductions that "appeal to women". The whole thing is just dripping with the idea that women actually don't like or want sex. It all reminds me of an Onion article about a woman masturbating to the thought of having a husband, a house in the suburbs, and 2.5 darling children.

I model because I can actually be painfully shy in "real life", so it's a thrill to do something naughty like this that no one would expect from me. Also, I don't normally wear make-up or nice clothes or what not, I tend to be very casual, so doing these photo shoots are a nice chance for me to gussy up and feel oh so pretty (and witty and gay!!! ohh!!!) The money helps, too. Originally I started modeling because it was the last thing I would ever do, so it kind of made sense to do it.

Wh...What do those pictures have to do with anything?
Really, Maximus!

I'm not so much offended in my delicate-flower-of-a-woman sensibility as in my sick-of-mainstream-tedium sensibility. Show me real people! Show me real bodies! Show me... well, this site, really.
There MUST be more sites like this somewhere out there. I've tried all of FurryGirl's suggested sites and enjoyed a handful... but most "alt" porn is the same old thing dressed up in piercings and tatoos. (No offense to any here with body mods, of course! Rest assured, you are NOT the same thing.)

I have a lot of reasons for modeling, but I first started as a way to get more comfortable with my self.
I have a lot of scars, some of them from accidents and such, but most from self injury. I've quit, but it's something I'm still struggling with, and that I used to feel very self concious about. A lot of people seem to think I should hide my scars, or be ashamed of them, but I don't want to feel that way. I got so sick of feeling guilty for not wanting them gone. A friend of mine who had been through some of the same stuff suggested that I do nude modeling for the drawing class at our school.
Getting up in front of a room full of people and baring my body, and my scars, to them really helped me to view my body more positively.
I'd like to be able to show other recovering cutters that they don't have to hide, that they're still beautiful.
I've only recently gotten into modeling for nude photography, but it's something I definitely intend to explore further, and I'd love to send in a set to Veg Porn when I have time for a photo shoot.

Post I am, therefore i porn

Because people said i shouldn't, because i am a shy polyamorous person, and because it makes me feel some karmic balance (i download porn, then i upload porn).

First i did some stuff with no intention of ever letting anybody see it though, i was absolutely sure that nobody would like what i find interesting. Then i found VegPorn and thought to myself "maybe somebody would appreciate it"... (then after a couple of years and two of my sets being rejected for various reasons) i've started my own site out in the ether (I still consider VP one of the best porn sites in existence, however).

Now i model quite often because i need to work out the frustration of long-distance relationship, and knowing that my partner will be watching what i do makes it a little better... and neither of us minds the "sharing" bit (i did ask) (of course there are some things shot which will never hit the site).
