Default Ladies and Gentlemen - A question for the so-called "Pic Whores"

Preface: The question I'm about to ask implies no judgment or malice. It's a question motivated by curiosity only, so please keep that in mind when you respond.

The question: What motivates you to post revealing pictures of yourselves?

Follow up to the question: As I said above, no judgment is intended. I would be a hypocrite if there were, as I enjoy the pictures the ladies post. While I am happy to post pictures of myself in every day situations, or a fully clothed pose, I could never see myself posting anything revealing. As an armchair student of human nature, I am very curious about why people do the things they do.

As a corollary, those of you who do not and would not, feel free to chime in with the why and wherefore also. The only things I do not welcome in this thread are insults and judgments. We don't need any of that.

Well, a few things:

I had taken somewhat revealing pictures of myself for significant others before joining Dimensions and had gotten pretty good at playing around with camera angles and, honestly, I really just enjoyed messing around with a camera and taking what I observed to be attractive pictures of myself. Maybe that makes me conceited and/or egotistical...but I just think it's fun.

I think it also has a lot to do with the way you feel about your body as larger person. Speaking for me, I grew up a fat kid with fat parents...specifically a fat mother who did not like her body and made no secret of the fact that she disliked the way she looked. Well, everyone always told she and I as I grew up (and out) that I looked just like her. She did everything she could to discourage me from wearing tank tops or short-sleeved shirts that showed my arms or shorts or skirts...parts of herself she hated and so parts of me she wished to cover up. I've never HATED my body like I felt and feel that my mother hated/s hers. But I also was never in a position where I felt comfortable enough to display how much I liked my body either. Anyone who's grown up fat has been teased and knows what it feels like to be critisized for the way you look even by people you don't even know. Granted, I wear skirts now and the occasional tank top...but it's just plain old NICE to be able to show you're not ashamed of your body in an environment where you're not going to have to deal with fat hatred and disgust. And it's doubly nice to know that not only do you like it, but there are other people who like it as well-- and who are attracted to it. It's an affirmation of your physical beauty and attactiveness that hasn't always been present in the life of a fat person.

So, bottom line honesty: I think I'm attracitve...I think my BODY is attractive. It's fun to take pictures. And I like the attention.

It's a new thing for me-- showing off so much. But it's very liberating.

And maybe part of it is that I'm getting to have that rebellious, free stage with my body that most people get to have younger and in real life. Regardless, I think I'm more attractive at this point in my life-- and not just for physical reasons-- than I've ever been. And I don't find it demeaning to myself to post such pictures, although there was a point where a large number of my posts were pictures, and I worried I wasn't being taken seriously as a person, but I think it's about keeping a balance. And I think I've accomplished that now.

Plus I'm single, and they've kick-started a lot of conversations.

I come from the other side...very very rare for me to have a pic taken, and even fewer that I post.

The rarity of pics taken is based on more than one factor. First, a "good" picture of me is a rarity...most either look goofy or like a mug shot at best. Most of the technically good pics do not look like me...I have relatives that swear up and down that some of the pics my mom has from over the years are not of me. Third, we do not and have not owned a camera in the 15 years of our marriage, and I did not own one for probably 15 before that. Fourth, when I did have a camera, I never once took an in focus picture. Fifth, the intended appreciative audience for pics of an old, balding, disabled, married, and yes VERY fat guy is incredibly small...and the number who would not care to see said is overwhelmingly high.

Having said all that, there is an additional reason I do not have a web cam....as my wife puts it, I'm WAY to eager to get nekkid. Near zero modesty. I'd just end up getting my self in trouble with more than one governing authority...most importantly, my wife.

I did post a revealing (for me) pic quite a while ago now, and I did find the reaction overwhelming. My reasoning for posting said pic, was as a boost for my own confidence (which was sorely lacking at the time).

But to answer your question, Dro...I would be on the other side for a few reasons. I am rather shy, so putting myself out there is a hard thing for me to do, and I don't believe I am photogenic either. My last reason, and for me the most important, is that I would much rather share my private self with my SO.

One other thing that does concern me is the trolls that Dims sometimes attracts. The ones who think it's ok to poke fun or even use pics that are posted here for their own purposes. I have seen a couple of ladies get hurt that way.

It's fun, and it's a boost to the esteem. It's a way to be reassured that I am beautiful, and that my body is attractive. It's one thing for my friends to tell me they think I'm beautiful - but they're not appreciating my body. In my pre-motherhood days, I used to really love my body and shape, but the last few years have seen me put me on hold, and I lost that self love. All I could see were faults and flaws and it got me down.

Taking pictures and sharing them has helped open my eyes up again, not only to what I find attractive about me, but what others do. Before coming to Dims, I hadn't realised that someone might like my thick thighs, big arms or back fat. I mean, I was well aware there were FAs out there, but it just never clicked that they'd like mine. Learning that my belly (and how it hangs), my thighs, my butt...that all of that is appealing and desirable helps me love me again.

I like the attention too, I won't lie. I don't get to go out socialising a lot these days (the whole single mother who doesn't drive and doesn't have a lot of spare cash thing curtails that a lot), so my chances of running into an FA aren't that good. Here, I know I'll be appreciated. I do go back and forth about posting photos here at times, but then I used to be known as "the naked one" at kink parties, so plenty of people have seen me naked before.

It feels good to be wanted and desired.

I've been tempted to post revealing pictures of myself on here but that's something I save for the "lucky" (hah!) person who happens to be my significant other, like LFW said.

Seeing as I've spent 98% of my life feeling untouchable, unlovable, and/or just plain unwanted, posting pics of myself and getting the response I do is a nice boost.

It's just a body, we've all got one, it's part of who we are. We express ourselves in text format & i think it's just another way of engaging.
As they say a pic can tell a 1000 words.

I get leaving something to the imagination and something special for your significant other, but most of us don't post any pictures that reveal more that would we would in a bathing suit.

Sure there was that one ass picture, but the "bad" ones, I generally delete within a week or so of posting.

After so long of having nobody fine me attractive, people here do. I can finally be open with my body and know that people like to see it. So I like recieving some of that attention every now and then.

So yeah, bottom line: Attention Whore

It's just another form of self-expression and for many of us, this is the first place we feel comfortable posting revealing photographs in public.

I have a type of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) which is really more the opposite of what everyone imagines it to be--thin/average size girl thinking she's huge or misshapen--well in my case, I look in the mirror or down my body and see a smaller person--not thin by any means but when I saw the truth in a photograph it used to be very traumatic so I never let anyone take pics of me. In fact, I volunteered to be the pic taker. All of this is ironic considering I did model and ran around nude backstage but I have very very few examples of my work because of the dysmorphia. I wouldn't look at the pics so I'd be okay. I'd look at the pics and hyperventilate that it wasn't me. Not bad at all just NOT ME.

Ironically, some people have said I don't look like an SSBBW or even a large BBW and I have to laugh because I weigh over 400 lbs. so I wonder who else has body dysmorphia (LOL j/k)

Now I take a lot of pics and do feel more comfortable looking at them. What I post here at Dims are the ones that make me happy. True cheesecake shots are saved for an extremely small elite group, though.

I've recently gained more self confidence and it's still a journey. When I was younger, I was called ugly several times. They called me rabbit because of my teeth. I got braces at 13. I discovered my beauty and just enjoy posting pictures of myself. Now I feel like I have a pretty smile. I came to Dims and saw all these gorgeous big women and I thought, yes, big is truly beautiful. Nudity is a beautiful thing and yes, I have posted nude photos on here. The voluptuous female form is wonderful.

Another thing, I was surprised that so many guys on here love big bellies. I always had a problem with my belly as the 'coke bottle' shape (big hips/buttocks, big breasts, but slim stomach) is idolized in my community. That's the part I have to work on loving more and it is a work in progress.

For me, it's the opposite. I kinda have low self-esteem, so I don't really find myself attractive and whenever I take a picture of myself, I tend to hurry up and delete it. Some I save if I think it looks halfway decent. That's where most of the pictures on here come from.

CastingPearls... I totally understand your statements. I, too, look in the mirror seeing one thing and then photos show me a whole other side of myself. It's very traumatic. I always wondered if others felt that same way. In my mind I guess I think I'm 10 years younger and 100lbs lighter.

I haven't been one that has posted pics...perhaps someday. Because of Dims I have learned to start accepting these curves and folds and such. Perhaps one day I'll put it out there

It's a total self-esteem booster, Plus for me I have no problem showing off "the goods". I'm in a place where I'm accepted and what I have is wanted, couldn't be happier to oblige those who want to see. That's just me though.

As a gay FFA, I appreciate the pictures posted by our lovely ladies and post a few of mine in return so I don't feel like too much of a lurker.

As an underweight woman, I feel more comfortable posting here because I don't like and feel comfortable with male attention and the guys here are unlikely to send me creepy messages. Besides, I love the sisterly camaraderie and the body-positivity in the cheesecake threads; it is a welcome change from the usual scenario of women of all shapes and sizes complaining about their bodies in the locker room.

I don't because this isn't exactly a closed environment. It's more like opening a phone book and sending the same pics to random strangers ... a lot of them. And electronic information lasts forever.

I'm more inclined to share some things only with those people I know and choose. I am comfortable in my own skin and definitely glad to share all that with someone special, but I do private showings only.*

I do find myself sometimes checking out other people's pics; then later I'll catch my reflection in a mirror and think that line or those curves would make a great shot. It's a nice feeling, but maybe that's enough for me. I also appreciate everyone who posted on the belly thread and want to thank you all for helping me feel more accepting of something I was still struggling with.



* No nekid cam either; so quit asking.

I can say, for myself I used to post a lot here and I did post some very revealing photos of myself. I think it had to do with recently (then) realizing that there were men out there that found a girl my size attractive and getting a high off that attention. I have in the years since, realized that even though you can take pics down, the things you put on the internet are there forever.

I haven't posted them on here, but elsewhere. The reason is the same: I'm damned cute, I know I'm damned cute, and I like to show it off.

I'm a huge exhibitionist by nature, I've always detested clothes and loved entertaining people, so why not combine my two favorite things??

Glad I am not the only one! I was worried when I read the title of this topic - but I thoroughly enjoyed all the posts. If you have posted pics - THANKS. If you are still thinking about it - post a nice, completely clothed pic- not an inch of tempting flesh showing - and people on this site will appreciate it for its beauty!

I've not put out a lot here, but more than the standard message board or facebook, would ever get from me. The (somewhat) private nature of this board is a bit more accommodating to people, so I like that.

All of that, and/or this: I'm a closet exhibitionist, and an attention whore. This place is guaranteed to make you feel good about yourself. Seriously, sometimes, you ladies make me feel like a piece of meat. And, from the bottom of this skinny, hairy heart of mine, I say Thank You.

Well, this too:
I basically have the same amount of hangups that most people have with their appearance, so posting pictures is kind of my way of facing the fear.


One, or all of those answers apply.

I've gone through this too. I still do to some degree.
