Take note: Different forms of intimacy.
I would feel so bad washing this off, holy shit
You could take a bath afterward with the artist and they can wash it off for you so you don’t feel responsible for their work. But also, it could teach the same kind of patience and concept that nothing lasts forever, similarly to the Tibetan Buddhist sand mandala tradition. And it could be just another step in your process of intimacy. Just a thought.
I want to paint on someone holy shit.
Babe: You’re obligated to do this now.
man, would love to have the type of friendship with people where we could all sit around topless, babes and dudes, and just paint on each other, and drink a little and laugh a lot
bolding last comment since not everything that looks intimate doesn’t really have to be
I think this is one of those times where it might be awesome to differentiate between “intimate” and “erotic”?
It can be totally intimate and still completely platonic. Human realtionships can be wonderful like that.
Well, I feel that is a difference in the way one can see nudity for a start. There is a big difference. If the nudity is intended with sexuality behind it, then by nature it is an erotic/sexual action. However, if the nudity is allowed to just be then it is a completely different action.
I know I have asked a couple of people to allow me to photograph them. I am an artist and I needed subjects to draw. Anatomy is challenging enough and being able to use a friend to pose is awesome. Luckily I had a couple of friends who had been willing. And they were typically topless (bra remained on) and I was curious if there was a possibility of them wanting to model nude. They said no, which didn’t shock me. However, if there is a presence of two individuals being comfortable enough with one another it should be possible. Even if the people being used are beautiful or sexy, the intention of those involved is what should determine it.
Anyways, That’s just my two bits.
