    I don’t even like posting pictures online with my face included, let alone anything that may be viewed as risque.  I have a professional job, and I wouldn’t want to risk losing my license for something like that.  Even if that wasn’t a threat, I would never be comfortable even showing anyone other than my husband picture of me semi-nude (even mostly clothed maternity shots or something).

    Others can post what they want about themselves, but I do think they clearly need to consent for their picture (especially any picture including their face) to be made public.

    I’ll admit that I’m a prude, and none of the above really falls into my comfort level.

    I know this will sound like a boring mom Public Service Announcement, but no matter how comfortable someone may personally be with boudoir or other semi-risque shots for themselves/others, Facebook and Weddingbee and personal blogs are easily checked by prospective employers and schools. Just because you’re comfortable with something doesn’t mean your future boss or company will be. 

    No matter how “comfortable” you are, it’s better to be smart. Cache histories last.

    I voted for option #1 and would share those images with my Fiance and a few choice friends, but would NEVER put them on the internet or allow the photo to use them on his/her website or blog.  I had a professional career and am working a masters where I could come under scrutiny for items of that nature if they were made public (internet).  That being said I don’t even have a Facebook account, so I may fall into the overly private/protective of myself category.

    @gabrielleelise1981: That was my point in the post that prompted all this.

    FWIW, I was in the military and can walk around naked with the best of them. It’s the permanent and searchable nature of a public forum that I would object to if the pictures were my own, and as EvaBT points out, consent is of the utmost importance. This has been debated before in the context of posting boudoir pics, if you want to search for some good reads.

    @mwitter80: I saw the original post before the pics were taken down, while I do appreciate the beauty of pregnancy pics (and those were very beautiful and artsy), I will admit that I, out loud, said “woooah!” It was a little out of my comfort level I guess… 

    I think for me, it was more that they were mixed into the group of cute party pictures and that I wasn’t expecting them… I probably wouldn’t have been taken back by them so much if it was like a picture of the table display (like the others) with a picture of them framed or something or if the post was about her pregnancy pictures.. I dunno 


    I don’t think I would post pictures like that personally, but would probably put them in my home.

    What exactly is the picture like? I’m curious!

    After thinking about this, my opinions are kinda strange. If I went to someone’s house and they were nudists or had nude pictures, for some reason I don’t think that’d bother me nearly as much as if they posted them on Facebook. I guess it being on the internet just makes it seem more like porno.

    A maternity photo is one thing, a boudoir is another! I would be absolutely comfortable taking maternity photos and showing it to someone else.  Its a baby belly – there isn’t very much sexy about that.   I would never take a boudoir photo though.  In fact, my Fiance would flip out if I came home with any sort of boudoir photo, even if I had a female photographer and he was the only one to ever see it.  I am a working professional and if anyone in my field ever say it, it could ruin my career!

    I love being naked, and I’m very comfortable at home walking around in the nude. All I wanted when I was pregnant, was to get some beautiful maternity pics taken but it didn’t happen. I love the pic that you put up, and then took down. I think it is absolutely gorgeous!

    I will walk around my apartment naked, but I would never post a picture of me naked/or that implies that I am naked on the internet. 

    There is a difference in being comfortable with nudity and being comfortable with public exposure.

    I would totally do a boudoir or maternity shoot, but I do not think I would post the pics online. I would be too paranoid about potential employers finding them.
