Stunning Nude Photo Series Challenges What It Means To Be 'Attractive' (NSFW)

Stunning Nude Photo Series Challenges What It Means To Be 'Attractive' (NSFW)

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 03:05:09 in Arts

“I'm getting a much stronger message about the importance of body language in attractiveness from these images than I am about the physical builds of the subjects. Regardless of what is or isn't prominently on display or being presented in a flattering context, the postures in the first images are much, much more open and welcoming, and naturally more attractive as a result. That struck me as a much greater and more powerful disparity between the poses than how comparably flattering the two poses were to the bodies themselves.”

“I agree. Having your body turned inwards suggests that you are withdrawing from others rather than inviting them. Having your head and shoulders up also suggest self confidence, which is inviting. And as it is cliche, a smile is more inviting than a frown. I think that just like these factors invite others they also make you appear more attractive, whether in a magazine or walking down the street. There should be a similar study performed in certain social settings. I'm sure that if you put a person in a public place, regardless of their looks, they'd be approached more often when mimicking the poses on the left. Some other animal species use the same tactics when mating. i.e. there's a particular bird species that I can't think of, which sticks it's chest out confidently to attract the opposite sex.”

“It's a very difficult discussion to have. So many of us, possibly more than not, have loved ones who are obese, and who struggle with shame and bullying. We hate seeing them in pain. They often feel, to be perfectly candid, like freaks, and they do deserve to hear that they are not freaks, and that they are still attractive. But I agree there's a difference between pointing out that something is normal, and normalizing something that is unhealthy. Between saying a person who is obese is attractive and saying that obesity itself is attractive. It's a hard line to walk, and that's why I hope we can see this discussion happen more often in the media - so we can define that line and promote health without alienating people because of their weight.”

“I've lost two dear, tragically young friends to obesity related deaths. They were both very active, vibrant people - one of them received a standing ovation at her funeral honoring her incredible life force and accomplishments, the other was a very hands on, full time parent to a young child - but neither of their hearts could handle the strain of the extra weight and both died without warning. They were both incredibly, incredibly beautiful. Obese people can definitely be healthy and absolutely can be gorgeous, but obesity is still a very serious, inherent health risk. That needs to be respectfully acknowledged - respectfully absolutely being the key word - and I do feel that it needs to be discussed more often and openly since it's effecting such a large and rapidly expanding percentage of the population in North America.”

“This study came out last Tuesday.

http://annals.org/article.aspx?articleid=1784291

"Conclusion: Compared with metabolically healthy normal-weight individuals, obese persons are at increased risk for adverse long-term outcomes even in the absence of metabolic abnormalities, suggesting that there is no healthy pattern of increased weight."

The key is the long term perspective. It takes over 10 years to see the effects in a research setting which means on relatively short notice you don't notice what's going on.

I agree that shaming is neither respectful nor effective and it has no place in a civilized discussion. But HP does people a big disservice by stressing that "real people are overweight" and I find it really annoying.”

“Well there's a man with a perspective on life that very few have known. I can't even imagine what kind of a mental event it would be to spend three days in certainty of impending death, trapped in what had to seem an inescapable fate, only to be granted the chance to continue living.
