These Are The Top 5 Reasons People Send Nudes, Survey Finds

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.

They are just as essential as toilet paper is right now and they have more power than just being a photo that's hidden on your iPhone. Nudes aren't just a way to turn on the guy/girl you've been hanging out with, but they can elicit a feeling of confidence and pure sexuality.

Being able to look at one's body and think, "Wow, look at what we're working with," holds such a powerful stance that's untouchable, literally. According to a survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of the lingerie brand, Thistle and Spire, 2,000 sexually active Americans were asked why they send nude photos. Here are the top five reasons why respondents say they send nude photos.

1. I'm trying to keep my romance alive (37%)

There is absolutely no shame in trying new things to help keep the romance alive, it keeps things exciting, fresh, and hot. Plus it's fun to send your s.o. photos when you're not together and can't do anything about it. Well technically you could... need I say more?

2. I want to surprise my partner (36%)

Photos they aren't expecting are my absolute favorite (when there's consent, of course). I don't care if you're next to your grandma or hanging with the boys, there is something so f****** hot about getting a surprise photo from someone you're into/with. Unless it's a random dick pic from a one date wonder that thinks it's cute to use the eggplant emoji.

3. My partner asked (32%)

We're humans, we like getting what we want. We like being able to see what's ours and getting turned on by the fact that we get to be with that person. Pro Tip: Text your S.O. saying "let me see all of you" either randomly or while you're sexting. Be sure to praise them and virtually bow down to the photo or no more nudes for you.

4. It makes me feel sexy and/or confident (29%)

HELL. YES. Taking nude photos shouldn't only be about showing your S.O., especially if you're single (like me), taking nudes is a great way to say "I love you" to your body and to show off the skin you're in. Buy that sexy lingerie for yourself, try out different angles, and most importantly, turn yourself on with the body you were given. Own that shit.

5. To get myself/my partner off (25%)

Pleasure yourself by staring at that photo of you and think "OK I'd f**me", and that goes out to all people, single or not. Turn yourself on and/or show your s.o. that you're a sexual demon and they'll have to keep up. Sending nudes to your s.o. is also a staple for happy ending sexting and who knows, nudes could open up so many doors and that leads you both into finding other sexual things you both like, believe me.

Not going to lie but after writing this, I want to send a nude. Will I? Yes. Candace, we know you will too. To conclude this sexualness, don't be afraid to test the waters, with yourself and/or your s.o. Take a few racy photos and then do what you feel comfortable with. Don't feel pressured to send nudes just to get attention or to spice up a relationship that's going downhill, do it for the right reasons, and in the end, both parties will be satisfied, literally.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
