So cute!

Posted by candyposes on 12 Feb 2006 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

Finally Ricky got in front of the camera with me, instead of always being behind it (or to the side of it, carrying my stuff and being a lookout in case of police).

I get so happy looking at these pictures- this shoot was the most fun I ever had with a photographer other than Ricky(no offense to all the wonderful photographers I’ve worked with, but things are a little different when you’re in love). Luckily for me, they came out great. Luckily for all of you, I’m posting them.

Me in panties.

I thought I’d let everyone know that I’m taking a class about how to use photoshop. As a result, I have been able to revive this image of me in cute panties.

I thought I’d post a preview photo of what I know will be one of my most favorite image sets, ever.

Why this blog is here.

Posted by candyposes on 02 Feb 2006 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

My boyfriend pointed out a while ago that one could interpret this blog as merely a tease- you think you’re getting naked photos, but in return, you’re forced to read a feminist viewpoint. And, I guess he has a point.

So, why does this blog exist, and why does it combine nudity and feminism? There are several reasons.

The first reason is that my friends are tired of listening to my feminist and liberal rants. Most of the time, I’m preaching to the choir, anyway. This blog serves as an outlet for my ravings. They somehow seem much more intelligent when written down than when I’m spitting them out of my mouth at a mile a minute. They’re also missing the huge hand gestures and cursing that goes along with them in their original format, but this can be seen as a plus or a minus.

The second reason is that I love my body, and I love posing for nude photographs. At the moment, I’m not searching for modeling gigs, as I’m busy with other things, so I don’t want them to go unseen and unappreciated. What can I say, I’m vain, and I’ve also worked with some excellent photographers.

The third reason is to give a voice to something that is often objectified- the nude body. Whether it’s porn, art, or in between, these figures are usually silent. I know I can’t be the only one who finds images where one has at least a hint of who this person is or what the context was when it was created much more intriguing, as well as easier to appreciate on multiple levels.

The fourth and final reason is to help break the stereotype of feminism apart. There is so much negativity associated with something that, in reality, has done so much good for not only women, but men, too. Feminism is not the same as sexism. I believe that, although feminism usually fights for the needs and rights of women, as opposed to men, it benefits both sexes. I’ve always said that feminism isn’t just about girls who want to wear pants- it’s also about boys who want to wear skirts. For me, feminism is about breaking down stereotypes and rules, and being and acting as feminine, masculine, or androgynous as you want to be- regardless of your sex.

Here are some naked photos of me.

Good Bush vs. Bad Bush.

Posted by candyposes on 30 Jan 2006 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

I’m a huge fan of bush.

No, not Bush. The other bush. The good bush.

Many women choose to shave it all off- that’s their choice, but I can’t help but wonder why. I shave my bikini line and everything, and I like to keep things nice and trimmed, but I could never bring myself to shave that little tuft in front.

I like it because it makes me look like a woman, not a little girl. I like it because my boyfriend likes it. I like it because it’s one less thing to worry about getting ingrown hairs on. I like it because I don’t like the other Bush, and I get the giggles whenever I listen or read about Bush, and pretend that they’re really talking about the other bush. The good bush.

This entry is dedicated to the good bush. Here are some pictures.

I’m going to be busy: here are naked pics.

I’m going to be pretty busy over the next few days, so I thought I’d put up some more self-portrait test shots for I’m planning to take an entire series in this theme once I have another sunny morning to spare and send them in. Please enjoy.

Me and my goose.

I’m planning on submitting a set of photos to the website I shot myself. These are a couple sample photos I took of myself and a gooseneck squash. I scrapped the idea of a complete photoset, because there’s only so much you can do with a gooseneck squash that doesn’t involve penetration, and I’m not comfortable or stretchy enough for that.

A Naked Feminist: Essential Reading.

Posted by candyposes on 21 Jan 2006 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

I thought I’d make a list of all the wonderful books(and one magazine) out there that have enriched my life. There’s no way I could possibly name them all, so here are the basics.

The cooking bible. I don’t cook much, but when I do, I find the recipe in here.

The best of Bust magazine.

It’s a classic. From a literary standpoint, I feel it’s perfect book.

This book is worth is just for the marvelous images in it- not to mention the wonderful advice and step-by-step instructions.

Don’t straighten your curls, celebrate them!

I love Frida Kahlo! This book provides an insight into her unique work.

David Sedaris’ hilarious collection of short stories.

A hilarious and haunting graphic novel.

Don’t know who Ana Mendieta is? If you have any interest in art, you should!

The revised edition of the classic. Every single girl out there should be given one before puberty.

My second-favorite poet.

My favorite poet. The edition has all of her poems, unedited.

A friend loaned me this two and a half years ago. I still haven’t given it back.

I read it for school when I was 14, and it still makes me cry.

Feminist response to pop culture. The Ms. Magazine for my generation.
