Or rather a photographer of nudes?

Would you trust him/her around beautiful nudes on a regular basis?

Why or why not?

Sure I would. For the same reasons that my boyfriend (well, now husband) trusts me to be naked around people. It's just about being a in a secure, trusting relationship.

IMO, doesn't matter whether someone is photographing nude imagery or not... or doing photography at all.

It's all a question of whether or not I trust the person I am with.

Right...the only reason I'd end up meeting him, is if we were to shoot first probably. So, I'd see his work ethic and know how he acts around his nude models. If I were dating him...then it would be because he wasn't a creeper. So yes, I'd date/trust him. And I'd expect the same in return.

my boyfriend does photography with some nudes thrown in, i've never had an issue with it. but i've definitely grown up, 5 years ago i can't imagine i'd have been okay with something like that. i was a very jealous lady! but now i never get jealous of any woman, no matter how hot they are, because my ego is gigantic.

If I can get naked in front of strange men, my boyfriend can look at nude women.

But really, I am in a trusting relationship. Why would I worry?

What's a relationship without trust?
If you love&trust someone it shouldn't matter what they do for a living.
Everyone needs support from somewhere(-:

Oh yes indeed!!

Though I think many would eventualy feel a little jealous?? But just becuase you feel a little jealous does not mean that you will forever be insecure and drive yourself insane knowing that your sweetheart is working most days with nude models.

Its about trust smile

Its all about trust.  If you don't trust the person you are with then you shouldnt be with him/her.

What a ridiculous question.

It speaks volumes about the OP's perspective on nude photo shoots though...

Yup...

In fact it says more about the OPs attitude to nude models than anything else - there's an assumption that because they're working nude they're somehow more 'available' than if they were clothed... which is pretty insulting TBH...

Yes! I dated and married one, and knew he was both a nude art model and photographer. I am very comfortable with what he does, and trust him to be around naked people.

He respects the nude modeling choices that I make as well.

As long as they treat me with care and respect, I could care less what they do for a living.

As far as the "trust" issue....if you don't trust someone, you shouldn't be dating them, be they butcher, baker, candlestick maker or art nude photographer big_smile

Of course, you have to realize that the responses on here are likely much different than the population at large because most of the models/photographers here are cognisent of nudes as an art form even if they don't shoot them themselves.

Screw that; if the model is hot I'm gonna strip down as soon as she does - you can't believe how horny they get, and I get laid on a regular basis because of it.

hmm. sometimes i have insecurity/trust issues so i can't say for sure...although if i liked and trusted the photographer enough, then yes.  maybe moreso if i had known the guy as a photographer first and he had already proven himself to be trustworthy in that setting.

You live in a nation where prostitution is legal and topless hotties frolic on sunbeds in the public sports centre, and your royal family are porn stars.

I live in a nation where presidents run around naked holding each other's penises while they urinate on redwood trees and worship a 50-foot-tall idol of Satan at Bohemian Grove every year on the Summer Solstice.

And yes, there's a little psychology involved in this psyop experiment.

There's a huge number of models (and photogs) afraid to comment and reveal their inner demons...which I find most interesting.

As long as his port showed his professionalism (and your port will ALWAYS give away your intentions) then yes, I'd be comfortable with that.
