Was your family *that* comfortable with nudity?
Would you let your dad photograph you nude in the shower, like Ansel Elgort did?

If I looked like Ansel and my father was a professional photographer, yes.

Ansel's dad demanded photo credit for that picture (which he did not initially receive).

Those of you answering "Yes," why? Just curious.

Only if we were European.

I was going to say they strike me as a very European like family, so yes. I would rather have the dad do it than the sister who did his calendar shoot. And if I could have a world class photographer shoot me or a friend from LaGuardia I go with the professional.

Oh, and check out the body of work by Sally Mann who photographed her three children nude for a large chunk of their childhood. She’s perhaps one of the top five photographers of the second half on the 20th century. This is one of the most famous of her works entitled The Last Time Emmett Modeled Nude. And before you scream pedo, please note this is on a Government website owned by the National Gallery of Art.
Unfortunately Emmett is no longer with us, he developed schizophrenia as a young adult and also struggled with issues from having almost died in a car accident that happened prior to this picture and was part of the inspiration for it. All in all he seemed like he was a pretty cool kid and had an idyllic childhood in rural Virginia.

I would let my father take my pic, and I would take his. It would be fun. He's got a great bod.

Well, it wasn't just a snapshot. His dad is a photographer for Vogue.

R14 This was about the third or fourth time Sally did the shoot and it was getting to be late into October at that point and the water was quite cold. Emmett had lost patience, hence the fact that he categorically declared that this would be the final time he posed nude for her and was pushing back on ending the session when she took one last shot, and magically all the elements fell in place. It is a photograph that is a masterclass in what great photography is and can be studied up against all the other versions, which do not meet the criteria of masterpiece.
The car accident earlier that year, which he walked away from, never-the-less irrevocably changed something in him being so close to death and also profoundly affected Sally and how she saw her work. All of that is a culmination and deeply imbedded in the image his body language, expression and demeanor. One could look at it as the moment of the loss of innocence and transformation into adulthood.
An earlier photograph makes a nice compliment to this one. Emmett is in a ditch that narrows and flows into the river. It is both a canal as if he is about to be born, but also a grave. Family and friends surround and observe him, are they in a state of wonder and delight or mourning and repose?

Yes, because we are Japanese and the whole family of us always takes a bath naked in a sentō. And probably because we are not 399 lbs like most Americans.

His mom and dad must have helped him clean his dong before. Something familiar, obviously. Or OP let the dog clean his dong instead of his parents?

Nudity is both not a big deal, and hot. Sometimes both.
All I know is we need lots more of it by young men.

That's why I would do. Whore out my own child. That's some good parenting! I wonder what Dad would do if he caught him doing heroin. Buy him a speedball?

Instagram made him take down the picture because they say violated their community standards.

His mom grew up in Larchmont and his dad was born in Brooklyn but grew up in New York City.

Was he a suicide? I wouldn’t be surprised. Having your parent repeatedly present you nude to the world, over a period of years, can’t really be super healthy.
It’s just not done. For obvious reasons.

He has a large, flat head. His body is decent but he’s not leading man material.

Yeah, probably. I'm not ashamed of my body nor am I uncomfortable with it being seen by others. It's just a body, everyone has one so I don't see the big deal.

My father was not artistic and legally blind, so no I would not. But if my father were a photographer I probably would have. Also, I never really appreciated that I had a very good body up until my early forties, so it would have been nice to have artistic photos of my body when I was in my prime.

I grew up with my dads junk flopping around in briefs as thats all he wore when home. Nudity was never a big dirty thing in our house . It wasnt encouraged,but if it happened it was no big deal . So yes,Id have let him photograph me.

I’m sure that Europeans look at this situation differently than us Americans.

Yeah, we still have that stupid puritan streak and are easily traumatized by pretty much everything. On the other hand, all the cameras everywhere, all the dick pics everywhere, all the amateur porn everywhere, I'm not sure we can sustain this whole nobody should ever be naked or see anyone naked thing.
