I think I'm going to start photographing nude models. I did it once and it was awesome. Yeah theres the obvious part of it but it's like you're a real photographer. I just don't know how to find clients.

Set up your studio in a van outside Walmart so they know you are legit. Or put up Craigslist ads and make sure to say "don't worry I'm not a rapist".

It would probably work. I was at a 70 person field party and by the end of the party there was a professional photo shoot going on. One model, one photographer and one car. I mean it's easier than it sounds. 

I have my anthology outline in your thread now Alien.

In a similar vein; hot boy in my class always puts himself into "accidental" sexual poses. And gets the shit kicked out of him. This annoys me because it's illegal to harm cute people.

That's fucked up, you can only watch Requiem once in my experience. I mean, I know people who own the DVD and shit and who do watch it occassionally but for me once did it.

Crash.

Training Day.

but I love comedies, it's hard for me to resist going in that direction. 80% of my movie collection is comedies. Have you ever seen the original Clerks?

Fuck. I am of the strong opinion that every time you view that film it steals a piece of your soul. Watch it too many times and you end up just like the mother--or the girlfriend, depending on how close together you repeat viewings.

I've seen it more than once, usually in a moment of "You haven't seen this? You have to see it RIGHT NOW." Then I spend the entirety of the viewing and a few days after thinking "Oh, god, why the FUCK did I watch that again?"

Pi had a similarly prounounced effect on me, although it didn't make me want to kill myself (unless you count the undeniable urge to chainsmoke the mind fuck away a slow suicide).

The old man saying ass to ass gets me every time. Magnolia is another emotional rollercoaster, when I first saw it in the theater I was furious then I learned to appreciate it. Its so damn dark though and that insane ending.

More interesting? Yes. More emotionally turbulent? No.

I remember feeling like I might have a panic attack watching Pi, though--to be fair, I am shit with numbers, so it may not have been the storytelling or cinematography that caused that.

I think Magnolia and Requiem are definitely two movies that made me sob and felt like I was losing my mind while watching them and that is rare for me.  I think the part where they break into song, "It's not going to stop, just give up" is heartbreaking.  Those are two movies you don't want to show someone who is suicidal.

I think it's stupid when men pretend they don't sob. I'm not sure how presenting a lack of emotions equals courageousness. Where I'm from, that's called being a sociopath.

Here's a list, courtesy of my boyfriend, of cry-worth films (in no particular order) :

  • The Road Home
  • The Last Samurai
  • Gladiator
  • Night and Fog
  • Grave of the Fireflies (if you don't cry at this, you are not human)
  • Gattaca
  • Schindler's List
  • Thin Red Line
  • Dances With Wolves

He also tears up from science videos. A lot of what makes him cry isn't from sadness, but from being so overwhelmed with emotion from the power in these films.

Arkadia from Australia is reading Selected Poems by W.H. Auden December 21, 2011 - 6:23am

Grave of the Fireflies is the saddest movie I have ever seen. Breathtaking.

Also, I saw those cam photos and started giggling uncontrollably whilst also being paranoid I might show up in them. I tried the cam scene a couple of times, partly research for a story, partly curiosity. I made too much money, got scared and ran away. If someone asked me to put my keyboard on my head, I totally would, just because I thought it was funny.

Aliensoul, I don't think it's nice to say a Fleshlight is a 'sad invention for lonely men'. I hate that kind of stereotyping/stigmatizing. Sex toys are awesome. In my opinion. I am far from sad and lonely and I have them. No shortage of the real stuff though. I don't see why guys shouldn't be able to enjoy the same benefits without getting made fun of for it. That's just me, though.

Also, Jack, checkout ModelMayhem.com for nude models. You'll probably need to have some shots of clothed models up in your portfolio first though, and preferably they will be good (good camera is pretty much necessary here). You said you want them as your clients - does that mean your in the photography biz already? Or you just think it'd be cool for girls to pay you to take photos of them naked? Haha. Either way - you'd probably need a prettyy good portfolio to get people to book nude shoots on a semi-regular basis. Anything can happen though.

Disclaimer: I sound like a sex crazed fiend whose life revolves around sex toys and getting nekkid for strangers. This is only slightly true. I also like, write and draw and go out to dinner and stuff. WELL-ROUNDED PERSON YEAH!

@Arky. THAT'S YOU ARKADIA; naw, you don't sound too bad. We all have a sex stage in our life, where the only drive is that of our penises/vaginas. I must say, sex toys are pretty awesome. However, buttplugs scare me. Oddly, being tied up doesn't....i should stop talkin now.

Arkadia's picture
Arkadia from Australia is reading Selected Poems by W.H. Auden December 21, 2011 - 8:34am

Glad I don't sound toooo bad ;)

I think I'm past the 'peak' of my 'sex stage', being in a six-year relationship tends to do that to a person, but I am just generally interested in sexuality as an academic subject. I don't think that will ever change. I resent a lot of the taboos placed on sexual pleasure and nudity, I think they're unnecessary and a cause of a lot of preventable issues in the world. But I won't even get started on the subject, because I haven't managed to find my 'off' button yet.

I understand the aversion to buttplugs. Just the word, even. To plug up the butt. Great. Sexy. Totally.

I think you'll be hard-pressed to find someone that doesn't like being tied up, when they're being honest with themselves.
