    It Was Fun, Nerve Racking And Exhilerating

    Drawing Anatomy 101 I have posed nude many times

    as a figure drawing model. However, among my favorites were a few times when I posed for a drawing anatomy class at an art college in Columbus. Rather than adopt various poses, I was instructed to simply stand there, fully nude, with my arms at my side, while the instructor...

    Life Modelling With Erection

    When I was in my late teens, being an exhibitionist, I decided to dare myself to see how far I would go. I really fancied the idea of posing naked for a life modelling class. Being the only one in the room who was naked appealed to me no end. I had never done anything similar in...

    Being a Figure Model

      I became a figure model in my late 20's. It started when a friend was taking an art class at the local community college. Their model did not show up one day and the teacher told everyone to let their friends know they were looking for more models. It paid about $20hr...

    Posing While Aroused

    As I said in my introductory post a few months ago, I have been modeling for art classes and artists for almost 10 years now. I love art modeling because I love figurative art, and because I enjoy the sexual aspect of it as well. Obviously not all art modeling is sexual and I'm...

    I had my first ever modeling experience today. And it BLEW MY MIND. Forgive the caps. But it really blew my mind. I'm a model at a Christian University, so naturally we're a little more conservative. Instead of being nude, I wore a sports bra and some short shorts. At first, I...
