I was recently offered two modeling jobs -- one for a friend to help build his portfolio and one for a professional photographer who will be paying me for my time. As the title may intimate, both of these gigs involve posing naked. Neither one involves 1) any other people/models, 2) any hint to my profession 3) any clue to my employer (obviously, because that's just kinda creepy) and 4) my real full name.
I couldn't help but remember a thread on here from a while ago with a title that went something like, "Are You Guilty of a Crime of Moral Turpitude?" I'm thrilled to be asked to pose for both these shoots (and the extra cash from the pro one doesn't hurt either), but there's a niggling thought in the back of my mind -- could I be held up as somehow "immoral" for posing nude? I mean, I personally have no shame in posing naked or generally being nude (you know, in appropriate situations). I did a degree in art before I became a nurse and spent a lot of time doing nude figure drawings for practice. I belong to a group that sometimes does (private!) nudist events. I don't feel any shame in showing my body to people who want to see it.
But I am also keenly aware that there are a lot of people in this world who would happily slander me for my choices.
Really what I'm asking is, should I stop and reconsider? Could my state BoN come after me, pointing a finger and saying, "Hey, we heard you got naked and there are PICTURES on the INTERNET." Could my hospital fire me? Maybe it seems a little stupid, but I've learned the hard way not to trust that people will be OK with my legal, informed, adult decisions.
Hoping to hear the thoughts of others on this one. Thanks.
