Wait, back up a second!

What do you mean, if I were picture perfect? grin

No, never, because I think playboy supports the myth that women's bodies are able to be bought and used by men, as opposed to being used by their owners for consentual sexual pleasure.

No because I don't want people seeing my bits ...

I'd have no problem with anyone who did do it, although the playboy girls do all seem to be perfect.. I wouldn't look that good even with photoshop Those bitches

I got scouted for glamour modelling when I was 19 and I didn't want to do it then and wouldn't want to do it now.

My body is mine it's not an object for the highest bider. Dp wouldn't be happy about it either

Depends how much money was involved - everyone has their price.

Sounds suspiciously like scouting for opinions for an article than an AIBU.

Is this for an article ?

Its totally up to the individual.

I'd probably do it. I'm a nudist at heart. Not that anyone would want to see it.

And why is this in AIBU?

I would not, now, nor before DCs.
I don't think it would give me anything other than a sense of being exposed which is not what I seek.
I am not jealous of those who do it and understand for some there are few other options. To each her own.

BIWI Sun 07-Apr-13 23:11:16

Well, apart from not wanting to just be an object, I can't see any reason why not hmm

Am I unreasonable to think that even if you were picture perfect, there are pertinent reasons for not posing These will be different for each person but what would they be for you?

ChippingInIsEggceptional Sun 07-Apr-13 23:04:22

What are you asking if you are being unreasonable about?

Icelollycraving Sun 07-Apr-13 22:57:00

I wouldn't now,no one would want to see me naked.
I might have done it when I was younger,firmer & without stretch marks,varicose veins & cellulite. Would never have done an open legs shot.

MDA Sun 07-Apr-13 22:51:36

Ta! I agree. Yes, probably a little heavy for a Sunday night!!!

IvorHughJangova Sun 07-Apr-13 22:50:05

That is an exhausting op.

No, I wouldn't, and I don't think that makes me jealous or ugly. HTH.

MDA Sun 07-Apr-13 22:48:00

Would you? If not why not? If you had the body for it would you do it?

If you had the hottest body in the world (!), would you do it then? If not, why not?

Why should one? Why shouldn't?

Personally I wouldn't want to endorse the playboy "brand". AIBU? Or jealous/ugly?
