    I respect freedom and liberty so this is only for curiosity.

    What is the point of private photos?
    From my personal understanding private phots are usually nude pictures that people want to share for C2C or hookup or some "other activituies." I think those are the reasons but I am not 100% sure.

    Is private photo a kind of marketing that people use to show their "explicit content" for hook up?

    I don't have any issues with people that do but is it not a bit degrading? For example: most guys usually look down on girls that exposed themselves on the net. Except the one looking for sex that is.

    So....please give me your honest point of view.

    Thank you in advance!icon_cool.gif

    LOL @ there being something degrading about the naked body. icon_lol.gif

    Some guys will put their face pics in their privates. I've even had guys unlock for me to reveal just more random pics of them with their clothes on.

    Your threads all resemble JamieJ threads.

    Is that an intentional misspelling of courageous in your profile name?

    Chill out, it is only a question.

    And I don't like the E.
    I am not jamie.

    Is this not a place to exchange idea and understand people? There is nothing wrong with having high moral values and looking for answers.

    There's a difference between exchanging ideas and pushing your "high morals" on other people.

    In fact, pushing "high morals" is the lowest form of morality.

    I am just curious. When did I say anything about persuading people to change their morality? People do what they want.

    Moral makes us a better person in most cases. There is nothing wrong with trying to be a better person. If morality topic makes you uncomfortable, it is your issue not mine.

    Thanks

    You insinuated that having nude images is a sign of low morality.

    Go to almost any church and tell them you're gay. They will say YOU have low morality.

    Another prude who thinks nudity is immoral.... So predictable.

    Wearing clothes doesn't make you a better person.

    Why don't you ask people around the world and see if the majority of them think posting naked pictures of yourself up is a respectful thing. I think most of them would disagree.

    But I respect in freedom of choices. Like I said before it was just a question.

    If wearing clothes doesn't make you a better person then why do we judge women if they wear slutty clothing?

    It seems the difference in opinion is your envrionment and how you were raised up.

    Also the church may look down on homosexuality, but at the core value Christianity promotes good values. I realize that even though I am not a Christian.

    Just because the majority believes in a certain set of morals doesn't mean they're right.

    Personally I think you've already made your judgments, and now you're just pushing them here to be obnoxious. You're not interested in understanding others. You're just smug and you get off on being a bully.

    Trouble is, it won't work here.

    I really do pity fools like you.

    Why don't you ask people around the world and see if the majority of them think being a homosexual is a respectful thing. I KNOW most of them would disagree.

    The majority is not always right.

    I do appologize if you feel that way, but that is not what I meant. I have no interest in getting off or bullying other people. I think you should considered about being upset at just a thread on this forum.

    No one said my pics were degrading until you came along. That's why I got upset.

    This is a tricky comparision. My op is concerning about a general behavior that is not directly related to sexuality, but homosexuality is directly related to sexuality.....But I will try to see if I can reason this out...... Now you got me confuse when you put it this way.

    Hahaha now you make me feel like I am the bad guys. Any way now I can see the reasoning behind your message. I did not realize you were upset. Sorry if I made you mad.

    The "point" of private photos is to allow the poster to select who he shows them to.
    If your opinion of naked pics, or pics of a sexual nature are degrading, then I'll assume you don't want to see them and won't ask to see them, and you won't post any of yourself.

    I don't think you're judging those who chose to post private pics, but if they do, why do you care?

    Guys post pics as private for a variety of reasons, I don't think that's too difficult to understand.

    He does understand and despite what he says, I think his only purpose here is to cast moral judgment. It's pretty obvious that his attempt at diplomacy is only meant as bait.
