I don’t even understand what is going on here, maybe because I’m not a creepy creep who regularly watches pixelated Canadian actresses showering. But here we are! According to the gamer blog Kotaku, this is Ellen Page as a character named “Jodie,” in the vide game “Beyond: Two Souls,” taking a shower. Yes, you can watch her take her clothes off, rinse off under the water, then dry herself with a towel — just like a real woman. Very voyeuristic! It’s from something called “a debug PS3,” whatever that means. Anyway, without further ado … yeah, this is weird. [Kotaku]
Nobody, not even Miranda Kerr or Gisele Bundchen, loves every single inch of what their body looks like naked. Why is that?
The saddest thing in the world is that we all get our ideas about what the naked human form “should” look like from Photoshopped, expertly lit, heavily made-up images that aren’t even close to real. And then when we’re confronted with the real thing — the cellulite, the sags, the ashiness — we are taught to believe it looks ugly.
Enter Dale Favier, a Portland, Oregon-based massage therapist. He has seen a hell of a lot of naked bodies (or body parts, anyway) in his many years of giving massage therapy. And he would like us to know a thing or two about what people really look like naked. Keep reading »
Nude open mic, anyone? Brown University in Rhode Island is hosting a nudity week with nude body painting, nude yoga classes, and other naked events all to celebrate the human form. Or save money on laundry. Hard to say. The two students who planned the school’s nudity week from September 30 to October 5 said they want their classmates to think about body image, ability and power. No phones cameras or bags will be allowed in any of the events, so the event stays strictly collegiate. While nudity week sounds body-affirming and potentially educational, can’t this be accomplished without people’s naked butts sitting on chairs that other people want to use? Are these kids going to wash everything afterwards, too? Body acceptance is great … butt germs are not. [Huffington Post] [CBS Local] [Image of butts via Shutterstock]
Lady Gaga took some nude photos that appear in the newest issue of V magazine. She’s back on the publicity prowl, promoting her new record Art Pop, and that’s great. Whats not so great is the weird Photoshop job that was done to this particular shot. I mean, just where has Lady Gaga’s vagina gone? Did it have other plans? A swim meet to compete in? Groceries to purchase? Maybe it was feeling under the weather that day, and decided to stay home and rest up. Whatever the case, it seems that Lady Gaga’s Vagina, like it’s owner, is forging its own unique path. Click through to see what we’re talking about. Keep reading »
Tennessee’s got a modern Bonnie and Clyde on their hands! At around 3 p.m. on Saturday, in Crossville, Tennessee, a man and women approached the 52-year-old man outside his home; soon after, the woman asked her accomplice to fetch her cigarettes from their own house nearby. The male accomplice pretended to leave the premises while the woman asked the homeowner if she could take a nude dip in his backyard pool. Obviously, he granted her request. After swimming naked for 20 minutes (the homeowner watching her poolside the whole time), the woman hopped out and the homeowner gallantly handed her a towel. What a good neighbor! The only thing is, after she got dressed and left, the homeowner walked back inside to find he’d been robbed. Okay, so he’s missing $1,195 worth of jewelry, medications and a handgun. But he did get a free show. And some people would say that is priceless. [CNHI News Service] [Image of nude woman via Shuttershock]
Another fall, another round of intense fashion weeks. Whether we’re talking Melbourne or Milan, one thing remains a constant — there are a lot of damn boobs on the runway. And sometimes they fall out of their shirts or stand at attention under sheer underthings. Here, we’ve captured the latest round of boobs on display during the spring/summer 2013 fashion week season. Don’t say we never did nothin’ for ya.
Writing about body love and acceptance? That’s my jam. Teaching women to embrace their supposed “flaws,” accept that physical beauty comes in infinite forms, and learn to love their own bodies just as they are? My life’s quest. So it is with great trepidation that I reveal the following: I really dislike being naked. I mean, if there’s gonna be a roll in the hay, that’s one thing, but hanging out in the locker room? Sleeping? Just about anywhere except the bathtub? I’d rather have a bare minimum of knickers and a bra. Keep reading »
Another day, another set of leaked nude photos. This is becoming a major trend! The latest to join Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn and Scarlett Johansson is “Glee”‘s Heather Morris. A number of naked pictures appear to have been hacked from her cell phone. Although she hasn’t commented on the photos yet, this isn’t the first time the celeb has made nude news. Back in 2010, naughty images of the actress surfaced and she admitted to posing in her birthday suit in her pre-fame days. “It’s not something I’m ashamed of,” she commented at the time. “Everybody should do tasteful beautiful nudes so when you get older you’re gonna be like, ‘Oh that’s when my body looked so great!’ ” The latest batch of nudes appear to be a lot less … tasteful, but she still looks amazing. Anyway, let this be yet another lesson to us all; destroy those suckers once they’ve served their purpose. [NY Daily News]
For Kate Walsh, star of “Private Practice,” posing naked on the cover of this month’s Shape was all about conquering a fear. “I was terrified, but I really wanted to do a naked cover—especially with Shape, because the magazine is about loving yourself inside and out,” she explained. “Right now, I feel really healthy, confident, and sexy. I’m enjoying my 40s and wanted to share that.” [viaKate-Book.com]
Hey, feeling good about the way you look in the buff is just as good a reason as any to keep the clothes off when the camera starts flashing. This got us thinking about other celebs who’ve bared it all for the sake of a photo spread. Just for fun, we decided to give you a little peep show. Go ahead, look. You know you want to.
I’ve never been one to adhere to “seasonal” nail colors — neon pink in the dead of winter? Bring it on. Despite my best efforts to the contrary, I still dress almost exclusively in black, an idiosyncrasy that I will defend until I’ve gone blue in the face, which would actually add a bit of much-needed color to my persona … but I digress. I’ve always kept color strictly on my nails, and done so with fervor, claiming the brightest of blues, moody purple-greys, and vivid reds as my “signature” colors. Normally, the past few months and the according drop in temperature would have me breaking out my most eye-searing shades and donning them with aplomb, but not so. Maybe it’s the unseasonably warm weather that’s gotten under my skin, or maybe I’ve simply become weird (become weird? Ha!), but I’ve forgone all of the colors I normally reach for in favor of… nude.
