Never an issue for me. My boyfriend (turned fiance, turned husband) never had a problem with my modeling, be it clothed or nude.

Stop thread.

This answer explains why Augustine has a successful career as a model AND a successful relationship.

Period. End.

Never an issue. As long as I leave my husband details of the photographer and shoot location he's fine with it. Doesn't mind me modelling nude either!

It's never been an issue and it never will be. I only date men who are fully supportive of what I do.

I was a model before I met my now-estranged husband.  As time went on, he grew jealous, which affected my modeling.  I left him (for this, and other reasons).

You're not going to get many negative and/or honest answers to this question. Not many women who are with jealous, possessive and shoot-wrecking asshats are going to admit it in open forum.

I've been doing modeling before I met my bf, if he had a problem with it, that's his problem not mine. Either get over it, or I'm going to find someone else.

I'm not going to stop doing something I enjoy because you're jealous.

My boyfriend, who became my fiance and then my husband never had an issue with what type of modeling i did. He loved seeing me happy and loved seeing the images i would create after. He would even hang my photos on his wall, and all his friends told me how proud he was of me.

What is there to be jealous of?

My wife is an awesome nude model... She goes to shoots, why would I be jealous, I'm not a model.

LOL...and she's very cool too. But on the flip side, as a photographer, my wife never gets jealous because I never give her a reason to be. If I'm shooting models, clothes or otherwise, I always let her in on what the shoot is about, who is it for, etc. Hell, half the time she likes to help in post and I'm fine with that because she has a great eye for looking at the female form and her input is always great.

Again, if there is no reason to be jealous, and if the person is, it's on them, not you, and if there is jealousy in a relationship, I can assure you, it's going to manifest itself in many more ways outside of modeling.

jealousy can also come from insecurity sometimes, not necessarily because you don't trust the other one

Sometimes? Jealousy doesn't exist.

It always comes from someone's own insecurites and/or the situation they remain in.

meh, I just think there's a difference between being jealous because you don't trust the other one, or being jealous because you have issues yourself.

I can get jealous sometimes. I am 100% confident that he is faithful to me and will be faithful in the future, even when there is temptation. But I still get jealous. But that's my problem.

unfortunately part of the reason bf's/husbands may be jealous is due to this incorrect (media?) portrayal/mystique that photogs and models often hook-up during shoots...maybe guys can't understand how/why it doesn't happen lol

I've been with jealous and possessive jerks in the past.

What's wrong with the models posting about their supportive boyfriends/fiances/husbands? You think they're not being honest and such people don't exist?

Do you read the same forums I do?

Women, and men, admit plenty of embarrassing things in the forums.   Some of them seem to live for it.

my boyfriend doesn't like it. he doesn't like the idea of me being nude or seminude around someone who isn't him. so i don't even do implieds really any more. a few people have told me "do whatever you want, he doesn't own you!" but i respect his wishes because he respects mine. if i wanted him to stop doing something that upset me i would hope that i would be important enough for him to stop doing it. sometimes it's a little annoying because i love being naked around other people, but it's not like modeling is my job or anything. everyone involved seems to be able to find a way to work around it, so whatever big_smile

compromise is a given in any relationship, just be sure you don't compromise too much.  smile you've got a good head on your shoulders.

My husband fully supports my modeling. Even nude work! When I get images from shoots he tells me what he likes about it and what he doesn't. Even simple things like how my hair looks.

Only became an issue once.  No, not my modeling.  My boyfriend.  He was out the door the moment he said he didn't like me modeling.

Boyfriends come and go.  Passions stick.

I've known models where that was the case and they still had issues. The guys knew going in and still wanted to change the women. Good for you that it's not an issue smile
