I was hoping a few of you guys would post your best non sexual nude.

I think what we are going to see here is that "sexuality" is going to be in the eye of the beholder.

But a lot more interesting conversations might pop up as well.  Possibly the amount showing could be a factor. Angle, lighting, wardrobe, setting... ect.

To be honest, can a nude be just "artistic" and "beautiful" and void of sexuality?  I'm not sure.

I think this might also be a place to discuss the difference between sexual and erotic.

I don't think this is remotely sexual, although she is really beautiful..

Sure... I can do that.....
There is little sexuality in any of my images.

got to say, your art nude style is great - not often I see colour work that I really like.

I think I have a few examples in my profile. 

Here's one of my favorite non-sexual nudes.

WOW...

MM is on a roll today.  Great replies completely void of drama.

I only saw one that I thought might be borderline.

The term "sexual " is so open to interpretation. 
Here's Dictionary.com

  –adjective 1. of, pertaining to, or for sex: sexual matters; sexual aids. 
2. occurring between or involving the sexes: sexual relations. 
3. having sexual organs or reproducing by processes involving both sexes.

Still doesn't help.  I don't think an image of a solitary nude is automatically sexual.

I think this image in my portfolio could be said to be sexual.
http://www.modelmayhem.com/pic.php?pic_ … =12254&ua= 18+

That said, I don't think these are sexual.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/pic.php?pic_ … up_id=&ua=  18+
http://www.modelmayhem.com/pic.php?pic_ … up_id=&ua= 18+
And I don't think much of what I shoot is sexual.

I have 13 full nude images in my MM portfolio, and only one of them is considered
sexual, and that's more because of how I'm sitting than anything else...

and I'd have to say...

Sorry...... you are on the brink of failing non sexual 101,
Particularly with the first one.

On further review..... you are past the brink.......

Ok, here's my offering:

I don't think it's sexual because of the context.
