Step 3: Try something new

how to take the perfect nude (for dudes)

Fellas, this one's for you. 

Take sexting a step further and turn them on with some visual stimulation—and no, we don’t mean with your typical d*ck pic. First, let's start with some basics. Then read on to for some tips and tricks.

THE BASICS:

“Nude” does NOT mean you need to show everything, all at once. Tease them a little with just a piece of “the goods.” 

Use your timer to get the perfect shot. Take a lot so you have options!

Lock your door if you live with others - trust us.

If you’re worried about security, use a password protected photo sharing app or avoid having your face in the frame.

Lotion (or lube) up - hydrated glisteny skin is hot.

Straight up dick pics are almost always a bad idea. Full frame or looking down at your erect penis is a POV that you & you alone should enjoy. Remember, unsolicited dick pics are a big no, no!

tip 1:
think through the full frame

You’re beautiful, sexy and hot. Whoever is lucky enough to get your snapshot is already winning. The last thing you want to do is distract them with something messy in the background. Think clean lines, clean room (and yes, it’s totally ok to throw all your junk in a chair or the closet to get the perfect shot).

tip 2:
give them what they want

Hate to break it to y'all, but most folks aren’t into seeing d*ck pics or the inner workings of your bum. You (hopefully?) know what the receiving end likes. If it’s arms and chest, give ’em them that. Into the butt and legs, happily oblige. Whatever you do, don’t just whip out your phone and your penis and snap away.

tip 3:
afternoon de-light

The light when the sun’s starting to set is called golden hour for a reason: it makes everyone look golden! So if you can, take your shot then. Scout out different spots in your home and watch how the light comes in. then set up in the best area for the shot. Even if you can’t get perfect lighting, natural light is still best. And remember, turn off the flash—your member does not need to look like a crime scene.

tip 4:
think through the position

Prop your phone behind you and walk away for a great butt shot. 

Grab yourself & show just enough, but not too much.

Side views as you twisting toward or away from the camera can make your torso more defined. 

Playing with (or showing) precum can really get ‘em going (if you want to go that far).

And the classic naked mirror selfie often works perfectly, too!

tip 5:
consider movement

Instead of posing still, snap photos as you’re undressing or lowering your pants. A little hint of hip as you push your sweatpants down can drive anyone wild, regardless of gender or sexuality. Consider snapping as you stroke (if you’re into that type of thing). With your hands, a sheet, or towel covering some of your parts, the mystery will titillate.

tip 6:
stay in the moment

Remember that this does not need to be a huge production. Sure, take a few minutes to put some thought in (if you can), but don’t be a perfectionist. Stay in the moment. A “look what’s happening right now” feel can add to the fun and be a turn on in and of itself.

tip 7:
be confident

Taking and sending a photo of your naked body can feel vulnerable, no matter how great your relationship is. It requires trust and confidence (in both yourself and the recipient). Once you’ve decided to take a sexy photo, be all in, it will help you feel confident and free!
