You’re probably not a stranger to receiving and sending nudes if you’ve been on social apps. Even more so if you’re a female. There’s no shortage of guys asking for that raunchy pic of you in nothing but your baby suit. Most of the time, these kinds of requests aren’t welcome. They’re actually borderline annoying.
But once in a blue moon, when you’re in a generous mood or you’ve come across someone worthy, you want to show off what your mama gave you. In that case, good for you! Our bodies are blessings, and every curve is a sight to behold. And like an exquisite piece of art, you are meant to be admired and desired.
But before you decide to click on that send button with a pic of your beautiful body attached to it, here are some tips to take note of that can make sending nudes a fun and safe experience for you.
Things to Consider Before Sending Nudes
But wait a sec there… Before you learn how to send nudes, consider the following points first. This ensures your safety and comfort while you send those intimate pics.
1Take time to reflect and assess.
Most of the time, our horniness can cloud our judgment. When you’re craving that sensual touch, you may be in the mood to send a raunchy photo to your fling or partner. But before you do just that, we recommend asking yourself the following:
- Do I fully know the person I’ll be sending nudes to?
- Is the person I’ll be sending my nudes to someone I can 100% trust?
- Am I comfortable with sharing an intimate aspect of myself?
- Am I doing this because I’m ready or because I’m feeling aroused?
- Why am I doing this exactly? To elevate the relationship? Because I was coerced? Because I feel confident in my skin?
These are some of the questions you can ask yourself. If you’re 100% ready to do it, start prepping for those sizzling shots. But if you’re unsure that sending nudes is something you can do, we recommend postponing it.
2Boundaries should be established before sending nudes.
If you fully trust your partner and are ready to send that nude pic, then go for it. But before doing so, establish boundaries before sending the picture. Tell them that you’re sending something sexy and that photo can only be seen by their eyes. We also recommend discussing what to do with the photos in case you’ve broken up with them.
3Avoid showing your face in the photos.
Show everything else but not your face. Your face is perfect, don’t worry. But in the world of nude pics, anything above your lips is restricted. Remember that the internet isn’t exactly the safest and most private place. We’ve all heard the news about the leaked photos of some Hollywood stars. Better to have trust issues now than to be sorry later. That way, no one can trace the nude pics back to you when you possibly get famous one day.
If you end up in a messy breakup, your ex might share those photos, aka revenge porn. There’s also a possibility of you or your partner getting hacked and your devices getting lost or stolen. That’s why if you’re planning to send nudes, it’s best to not show your face for extra safety.
4Take advantage of security features on messenger apps.
Another safety practice you can do is using the “vanish mode” or “disappearing messages” feature available in messenger and social media apps. It comes in different variations, but the general function of this feature is that the messages sent will disappear at a specific period or if the recipient closes the chat. This mode also doesn’t allow both parties to screenshot or save the photos.
5Sending nudes isn’t a requirement in a relationship— don’t pressure yourself into doing it.
There are different ways to be sexually intimate with your partner. Sensual massages, oral plays, mutual masturbation, makeout sessions, phone sex, and sexting are some things you can do to maintain the spice in the relationship.
If you’re not comfortable with sending nudes, don’t do it. Period. If your partner forces you to send one, leave. Don’t be with someone who clearly doesn’t respect your boundaries.
Tips When Sending Nudes
Ready to send the first-ever nude pic? Below are some must-follow tips to ensure a safe and fun experience.
1Start with “dirty” sexting…
For the skeptics, you may find sharing dirty texts a hilarious activity. But those who have tried it know that it’s no laughing matter. Things can get insanely hot just by exchanging dirty words on a screen. Consider sexting your foreplay when it comes to sending nude pics. You will both feel so raunchy that sending nudes seems the natural next thing to do.
Below are some texts you can send before you share those stunning nudes. You can also check this article for more sexting suggestions.
- Just took a post-shower selfie… Wanna see?
- My body misses you…
- I have a little surprise for you. For your eyes only…
- Here’s what you’ll be seeing tonight…
- Can’t wait to see you tonight. Here’s a sneak peek, babe.
- I want you soooooo bad…
2Rock that bod!
Be confident about your body. There’s nothing sexier than seeing a woman confident in her own skin.
Striking an assured, sexy pose may not come to you the first time. It may take practice to get to that stage, but once you get it, the quality of your nude pics will reach an all-time high. If the thought of sending a nude pic doesn’t sit well with you, but you’re sending it anyway because of pressure, you probably have to rethink your decision.
3Nudes don’t necessarily mean you have to be naked.
Guys are visual beings. To get them hot and bothered, you don’t necessarily need to have a full-body naked pic of you. You can get creative with your shots.
Show a little bit of skin. Cover up the private parts. You can let their imagination do the rest. Send a pic of you still wearing your shorts but with your shirt slightly pulled up, giving a peek of your belly button. Or get that after-shower look and take a pic of yourself with the towel still wrapped around your body.
4Get a good angle.
The image of your nude body is beautiful. We’ll never get tired of repeating that because it’s true. But here’s the thing. The right angle can turn a beautiful nude picture into a drop-dead gorgeous one.
Just like a selfie, you have to find your angle. Sometimes you gotta do backbreaking maneuvers to get there. And you may take 300 shots only to use 1 or 2 pics from those. But hey, perfection takes a little bit of effort.
5A messy background is not sexy— clean up!
You may have nailed that sexy pose but pay attention to your background as well. If you’re going to take that shot, please do it somewhere where your dirty laundry isn’t on display. Because that’s a turn-off.
We’re not asking you to do a general cleaning. But do take the time to clean up, or if you’re in a bit of a rush, it will take you five minutes to kick all the mess under your bed.
6It’s all about the lighting, baby.
In the same way you need to find a good angle; you also need to take that shot somewhere with good lighting. And by good lighting, we don’t mean a place so lit up you’re going to look like a ghost caught on camera. For a mysterious and romantic vibe, take that shot where that dim light effect is going. Turn on the lamp or stand near a window to take advantage of that side light.
7Put forward your best assets.
If you can draw attention to the body parts you’re proud of, whether it’s your ass, boobs, lips, or legs, then you can take your nude pic to another level of awesomeness. Put on a thong to highlight your round and perky butt cheeks, wear a V-neck to accentuate your deep cleavage, or bite your sexy lips to show how pouty and soft they are.
8Stop finding faults.
We are our biggest critics. This applies even when taking nude pics. We sometimes rob the fun of it by being too harsh on ourselves. We may have brought up the topic of finding a good angle and lighting and all those other pointers but remember that this is to have good old sultry fun. So stop wasting your time nitpicking everything. Sometimes you have to embrace all the imperfections.
9Experiment with different poses.
To elevate your nude pics, explore and see the best way to show off that skin! Experiment with different standing, sitting, and lying positions. Now, you don’t have to pose ala model for this; try different poses and choose which ones you’re the sexiest in. If you’re unsure what poses to take, you can check the next section for suggestions.
Don’t just focus on the output; enjoy the process, too. Get some wine, play dance tunes, and appreciate your body as you take those sensual shots. Your enjoyment will surely reflect on those sexy shots.
Best Poses for Sensual Photos
If you’re interested in sending nudes and wanna bring some *aesthetic* to it, we’ve compiled some poses you can try. Some may require extra props, such as mirrors, while others only require your beautiful body.
If you have a sofa, you can try this sultry position. Lay down on your stomach, but your upper body is leaning on the sofa’s arm. It creates a sensual curve on your hips and back, emphasizing your bum.
Looking for something simple yet sizzling? Opt for the classic standing mirror selfie. If you have a full-body mirror, stand in front of it while holding your phone. The phone camera should capture your body in the mirror.
Once you’re all set, take those sensual shots! Experiment with different standing positions; you can try standing with your legs parallel, with your legs crossed, with your legs slightly apart, with one of your hands on the waist, and so much more!
Wanna send a nude that doesn’t necessarily show any of your private parts? You’ve got to try this one. First, place your camera on a spot where you can capture the side view of your bed. Don’t show the whole bed, though, just half of it. You will then lie on the bed, facing the same direction as the camera. You will then hug yourself, fully presenting those stunning curves. The photo should show your bare back.
4Tie & Tease
Sometimes, going candid is the best way to take those titillating nudes. Get into your sexiest undies, put the camera in a spot where it can capture you looking into the mirror, then take shots while you’re tying your hair. There’s something sensual about a woman trying to fix their hair.
All you need to do for this pose is facing the camera while kneeling. Your legs should be spread out wide. Simple but incredibly sensual! What’s great about this pose is that you can easily crop your face from the nude pic or playfully cover your face with your hands.
Suggested Accessories & Props
Your beautiful bod is enough, but wearing kinky accessories and sexy costumes can amp up the sensual vibes of your intimate pics. Here are some kinky BDSM wear and kinky toys that you could use as props.
And there you go, the best tips and tricks for sending nudes! If you’ve got everything covered in the list, and feel ready to go through with it, then by all means, send it away!
Take note. though, do it because you want to do it and not because your partner wants to do it. Don’t ever get pressured into doing something uncomfortable for the sake of the relationship. Enjoy taking those daring nudes!
