My homegirl Whitney is coming back into town today. Gonna have to get her naked and throw her off a roof again.

I know this may sound funny coming from a promiscuous guy who makes a living taking photos of naked girls but to some degree I consider myself a feminist. In fact shooting girls has made me a bigger one. Having read the shitty comments and heard stories from girls who got tormented by people after having their pictures published on my site has made me so upset with all the puritanical assholes who think they have a right to say anything about what a girl wants to do with her own body.
Stop calling girls sluts.
Nudity and sexuality are awesome. I don’t know anyone who wants less sex in their lives and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t look at porn from time to time. So why the fuck would you ever criticize someone for giving that shit to you?
Guys guess what happens when you call a girl a slut? She becomes ashamed and embarrassed of her sexuality. Guess what happens then? Everyone gets less sex. How is that awesome? It is not. Fuck you.
Women calling women sluts is even worse. Even if you are in some sort of boring long term relationship with someone you love doesn’t mean you should judge someone else. And maybe one day you are going to do something that someone else would consider “slutty”. Do you wan’t people calling you a whore just because you wanted to enjoy yourself. No. So stop calling out other girls for having fun with their lives.
I have very mixed feelings about a site like Is Anyone Up. If you are hiding under a rock it’s a site started by my friend Hunter Moore where he posts naked photos of people that get submitted to his site. Most of these people do not want their photos published. It is fucking cruel and the comments are brutal. It’s just full off assholes calling girls sluts because they took some naked photos for someone they probably trusted at the time. It’s pretty clearly an evil site but I do see an upside.
Is Anyone Up pretty much proves that EVERYONE is sending nudes to everyone and hopefully people will start accepting the fact that being naked and having sexuality is not a horrible thing. People think their lives are ruined once their nudes get out there, and clearly it can have some real life consequences, but I think for most people it’s just embarrassing for a little bit and you move on. With a site like Is Anyone Up you see that you aren’t alone and maybe some of the stigma behind naked photos will start to disappear.
I want to see everyone naked. I want more nudity. I want more sex and you assholes are ruining it. Stop. Stop making fun of the way someone looks naked. No one should feel horrible about enjoying sex and no one should be ashamed of their own body. Fuck you people.
Stop calling girls sluts.
I shot naked photos of my friend Whitney at Mishka the other day. Make sure you check out their Black Friday sale!
Oh, and many more pics of Whitney will be up next week on DBB!
I think one of the worst things photographically for me has been the idea of thinking of my portrait shoots as galleries. This idea that I need a series of images. I am pretty sure it is because of the influence of Suicide Girls who required this full series of images from clothed to naked. Sites that broke off of them and that were inspired by them like Gods Girls and Burning Angel adopted this same model. When I am shooting a girl I have this mentality and I think a lot of the models do to. 10 years ago when I would shoot someone I would shoot several rolls of film and pick out one or two that I loved. Now I shoot 500 shots and narrow it down to 50. I pick shots that aren’t that great but tell the story in the series. Like I will keep a shot of a girl taking off her bra even though it isn’t as great as the clothed shot or the topless shot because I want to explain how that bra got off. That thinking has made me a bad editor and has made it so hard for me to pick out my best images when building a portfolio. The one positive out of all this is that it keeps my page views up which of course is great for advertising. But that begs the question am I a photographer or a blogger? I guess without both of them I would be a lot worse that the other…
