    I've Done This Once

    I had a female friend who started taking a figure drawing class at the local art center. They were in need of a model for the week since they one they had wasn't available. and she asked me if I would be willing. She said, "we've had female models, but not a male model yet and...

    I Enjoy Modeling

    I've modeled for private artists and for classes. Sometimes it's boring, but usually it's fun and liberating, plus I like being part of someone's creative endeavor.

    Most Enjoyable Job I Ever Had!

    I've been posing for art classes on and off for the better part of the last 20 years and to this day still enjoy posing nude for art classes. Am I an exhibitionist? Absolutely! It is fun being nude in front of people - and getting paid for it makes it all the better...although I...

    So Have I

    Not for a class, but for my parner, in the privacy of our own home! This was for her BA, so it was all in a good cause! I was dancing in the buff to The Smiths, still my favourite band. She painted using the handle end. My hands where doing a swirly movement to 'How Soon is...

    This is usually by way of life modelling . Once , in a suburban group , a stunning early-twenties woman surprised me by covering a huge sheet of paper with a detailed study of my genitals , so in the next pose I straddled a chair , whereupon she exclaimed to the room " Yummy...

    I was pushed into fashion modeling

    as a young teen by my parents. It was their idea of building self confidence and poise in what I would admit to you was a clumsy, skinny young girl ! I was lucky to get some exposure in local fashion magazines in the newspaper and youth periodicals. When I started into...

    First Time

    I posted this in a different group, but it's appropriate for this one also :) A few weeks ago my wife noticed a post on Facebook from a friend asking if anyone (all shapes and sizes) would be willing to pose nude for a sketching club just a short way out of our hometown. She...

    There are sometimes postcards pinned to the

    notice boards to say that models are required for art class, and when you call the portable phone number given it is one of the tutors involved who answers and you can be interviewed to see if you are interested. It's not paid brilliantly, sometimes the budget is quite small...

    For a Women's Sketch

    class in my early 20s. I answered an ad in the local paper. I warned the instructor I was overweight and she told me women with curves are far more interesting as models. I arrived at the old house and was instructed to remove my clothing and sit in the middle of the room. There...

    Not Much Pay Involved

    I always said if I had the opportunity to pose artistically nude I would do it.  As a present to myself I had my pictures made artistically in a semi-nude manner but I had the opportunity to pose semi-nude with a drape across my lower half forstudents and it was absolutely...

    I posed nude for my first time

    for a drawing 1 class. I was pretty nervous before hand, with the anticipation building up. But the seconded I dropped my robe and feeling everyone's eyes on me was fantastic! It was a bit cold at the start seeing as it was at 830 am in November and snowing outside. but they put...

    I have in the past and enjoyed it.

    I found it relaxing. I've posed for both college and privately run art school classes. And if the opportunity presented itself and with the right artist or art school, I would jump at the chance to do it again in a heartbeat.

    Great Work, Less Paying

    Figure modeling is great work if you can hold still, be creative, and be personable, then you will be in high demand. The money is not the best, but in some areas it is reasonable, yet the work is sporadic so you can't count on paying the rent with it. I had to give up...

    I Did It Once

    I'll admit that I have always had a bit of an exhibitionist streak. I'll do things like leave my shades open from time to time, or intentionally lean forward a lot when working so someone sees my underwear, etc. SO, I posed nude for an art class at a nearby community college...

    I still regularly pose nude

    for art students. I am a professional life model, male. I find the job somewhat peaceful and love to see the students work during my break. I have done this job for ten years now and to me being nude is no different to being clothed anymore.

    Well, not so much art students,

    as a friend who is a keen amateur artist. It began with an offhand comment, she said she would like to do more drawing and I said "well if you ever need a male model just call" - so she did! In for a penny, etc. Now, growing up my family were quite conservative about baring skin...

    I was in college from 2000 through 2009.

    I took two art class and I was selected as the nude model for these classes. I posed in both classes nude and either pregnant or not pregnant. I wanted to show off my body to some male students so I did by volunteering to do modeling in the classrooms naked. I thought it was so...

    Just Started Getting Into It

    Have posed for small groups and for private artists. Fun, and harder than it looks! Holding a pose for 20 minutes isn't easy!
