They seem to be fun. If you can handle the work it's going to be, and if you're in a job sector that doesn't discriminate against those who've posed nude or semi nude for anything (because it's basically a facet of porn), then by all means, do it! :D It can very much be fun and could end up really awesome for the self esteem. Won't know til you try, right? :D

You can do whatever you want to VampireKitten. You can make your modeling as fun as you want it to be.

It's fun, but it's work - it's a job, a commitment, and the images are FOREVER.

I think anyone who wants to should pursue it, but you need to think about all sides, not just the "oh boys will like it!" side that most stop on.

Also you need to figure out what type of modeling you want to do, your boundaries and what you do NOT want to do, and learn enough about sites that you know what the terms are, etc. You need to have a decent camera, a photographer, a place to take the pictures, the time to take them, and then research what sites you like and start reaching out to them.

Realize that not all sites will accept all girls, there are looks/types that they already have and can't currently use more of, there are girls who are cute as a button but don't quite have enough to push them over the edge to great model material. In such a saturated market, and this is a business, you have to make hard choices sometimes about who you can/can't take on.

I don't say any of this to discourage you, but I think there's a lot about the process and idea that people don't think about and being deeply involved in both sides, I think it's important to discuss all aspects.


Good luck!

They deleted my FB :(,
It can be an amazing and fun experience as I'm seeing now that I have such an awesome web team!! However you need to be very very careful about how you trust to do you site. Take the time to understand how the person you're going to work with runs things and what is expected of you. I've seen both sides and believe me, you want someone who has your best interest in mind, not theirs! Like previous posters said your images are going to be online forever, you need to be ok with that. It's a commitment that you have to be 100% dedicated to for it to be successful. If you really want to do it and you're willing to work at it I say go for it, follow your heart. It's a lot of fun when you're with the right people!

Being a model is a lot like being a musician: if you're going to do it just to make money, you are more likely than not going to be sorely disappointed. People are far more willing to give you a compliment than a dollar.

I'm a model and I enjoy it. It's not a paysite or anything but petite commercial/print. It can be a rough business too. You need to be pretty emotionally strong to do it because you will be critiqued and judged just as much as you are complimented. The more you put yourself out there, the more you open opportunity for people's comments, and you will hear all kinds of comments under the sun. So if you don't have a problem with people directly telling you what they think about you, your body, what you do, (good and bad), etc then go for it. It has helped me grow pretty thick skin, which I embrace.

Hm. MissAshley grew a thick skin. Must be a gaining site.

You can easily give it a test run on sites where you control and own every bit of your content. If you decide it's not for you, you take your pictures and go home. Southern Charms is one such site, but I'm sure there are others.

You can make money without it being a gaining site or hardcore site. Don't listen to just one group of admirers on any one forum and think that's where your site members will be coming from. Lots of guys in a forum will admire, but not many will subscribe to your site. I'm not picking on Dimensions guys here -- lots of forums out there geared to every kind of preference, and lots of admirers will encourage you to take the pictures that they want to see for free.

Do what you are comfortable doing, what you find sexy, what you find fun. It's hard work, and if you aren't having fun with the whole experience, it's not worth it. You should be creating images that make you feel good.

It can be a real ego boost, but I agree with MissAshley, it opens you up to commentary that you can't even imagine until you've been there.

Also, I have no idea if you are single and looking or not, but keep in mind that lots of guys out there would not be receptive to being in a relationship with a woman who gets naked online. Has to be said:)

It's true. Not too many guys are comfortable with their girlfriends doing that, although I have also known of some who are ok with it.

Anne Marie's got the best point in the images are forever.

Once you post a picture or video everyone has access to it and most of them will save it. Even if you leave the community altogether there's a pretty good chance that the image will pop up on hijack sites and other media outlets by former fans that kept the image.


I got a friend who's own children still pester her about doing it and she's been out of the scene a while.


So unless you're prepared for 10 years down the road when you're hypothetically married with 2 kids and out of nowhere some random creeper sends your spouse an email with your former modeling pic in it saying "look what I got".....don't do it.

We're rapidly entering the age of photos and videos of *everybody* becoming permanent fixtures on the net.

For example, issues of people finding drinking/partying/wearing revealing clothing photos on social networking sites of people in professional careers? Right now, that's a big deal. But as the younger generation gets a little bit older and starts work as the next generation of H.R. personnel, management and company owners - they're ALL going to have stuff like that out there, for other people to find.

I think eventually, you'll get to a point where such content is rendered meaningless, because practically EVERYONE has something like that online, someplace. Call it a general disregard for personal privacy, or call it the media-friendly generation, or whatever you like. We're headed right into it.

You should go to a bash b/c they'll be a whole lot of models there who can give you the score about the business/marketing aspects. The chances of modeling being a good expereince instead of a bad one will go up with the more knowledge you have.

this is the laaast place you should probably be asking lol. maybe sit in a room alone yourself and write down what you'd like to get out of it. then quietly contact some totally retired unassociated unaffiliated models and ask them if any of those things ever happened for them. good luck with whatever you decide:)

most important advice is: do not ask here

Or, I don't know, she could read the many sound and reasonable replies that caution her strongly about all that's involved and that it's not all sunshine and puppy dogs.

Oh wait, those aren't supposed to be here right? But they are. Hmmm.

Odd.
