How naked is too naked

    I have been in turmoil about what kind of pictures I should put on my profile. My goal is to find pictures that are attractive enough to not turn people away but understated enough that people still want to read my profile before deciding to message me. I feel like if I put up a pic with a decent amount of clothes on I just get passed over but if I put up a body pic I get tons of messages that say something to the effect of “dude you’re hot” and nothing else. I think that kind of message is okay once in a while, or when some ones profile is blank but mine is not. I just want pics that are appealing but don't overshadow other aspects of my profile. Has anyone had any luck in this department?icon_neutral.gif

    Trying to please everyone is the fastest way to fail.
    Put up the pics you want to put up. Thos who don't like it can go fuck themselves. icon_biggrin.gif

    I think exposing yourself more than you have in your main pic would be awesome... LOL

    Shirtless torso shots including the face are fine. They reveal enough detail, but do not give away everything. That's what the private pic section is set up for.

    Agreed. I sometimes put a Youtube video of a song in my pf so that it doesnt play right away, but its there incase anyone wants to hear/see it.

    A profile is your opportunity to express your creativity (if you have any) and show who you are. I don't think naked pictures are necessary at all -- especially if you're not comfortable with that. Sometimes the sexiest pictures are those that leave a little to the imagination.

    I was fully expecting a smart ass remark from you, but I think you hit the nail on the head here, Paul. icon_biggrin.gif

    I like your profile just as it is with the exception of the music playing right away. Do what you are comfortable with. Sometimes less is more.

    I think if ANYONE is in a position to give advice about putting up full body shots, I think it should be YOU!!!
    Besides being one of the hottest, handsomest, sexiest men on RJ, you have THE most tasteful pics of all!!!
    I just ran across a pic you sent me quite a while ago.... with the fondest of memories. It is so tastefully erotic....it should be in a museum!!!

    Until new years eve, my profile was completely different. All I had was pics of my junk trying to get out of my underwear. I got plently of visits, commons and msgs. But most of the msg went along the lines of; "so, how big is it?"

    Than I changed my profile for the new year and took down all those pics. Even though less people visit my profile and even less msg me, the ones that do, seem like the decent type.

    Bottom line: you have to choose between quantity of attention or quality of attention!

    I'd say when you're down to a skeleton, that's too naked... like in the Robbie Williams video.

    I think you should put up the pictures you want and it'll attract the kind of guys that want someone like you. Put up a naked picture you're going to attract more attention but if that's not like you then its going to be attention you don't want. Put up a clothed picture and yeah, you'll probably get passed over unless you're bulging out of your clothes with muscles. I'd say look through your pics, ask yourself if you want that pic up and put it up. The ones you don't want up, don't put up. Keep in mind its an online social website so the chances of you meeting your one true love are slim to none, this is more so for socializing.

    Put up only what you feel comfortable with.
    However, a tasteful semi-nude pic is better than a ragin' boner pic, IMHO.


    The best part of getting a present is the anticipation of getting to unwrap it!
    Meaning: Leave something for the imagination and the excitement of the lucky guy who gets to undress you!!icon_wink.gif
