My First Nude
Well, I am trying to remember...my pre-marriage sex (what little I had) was not all out there, if you know what I mean. I think it was while dating my future husband. I was a little shocked at how large (not what you think) male anatomy could be compared to what I had seen while bathing my brother years ago.

Do peep holes count? Did the model have nice feet?

I just know now I should have stuck in at Art.....

I remember my first life drawing class in college...it was pretty bizarre for a farm girl. We had a couple once and they struck a rather entwined pose and after a few minutes clasped together, we noticed that a faint rocking motion was emerging. Charcoal became quiet as we became transfixed on the subjects...Then they stopped and we furiously started drawing again!!! Hysterical!

As always, such a well crafted story. So did you draw the whole model, or just her feet?

I don't remember. I really don't. I graduated high school in 1969 so there were lots of naked people here and there. Have a terrific day. :)

What?! A jelly doughnut is the epitome of inspiration. I've never drawn a nude. I wish I'd taken college level art courses.

Dang, I wish I could have dropped in on a class like that.

I was 16 and my older buddies brought me to a strip bar. They had a chuckle as my gaping jaw and wide-eyed gaze locked on to our topless waitress (one of the dancers).

most likely my children's father- I don't think bathing my 3 much younger brothers count!

Um, since it involved walking in on family by accident, we won't discuss it.

I was bathed with my younger brother and sister when I was little, but when I accidentally (due to extreme need) barged in on my dad peeing when I was about 8 or 9 I was shocked to discover how much larger my brother's little thing would likely grow--LOL!

I've always found hands & feet much harder to draw than faces--perhaps I should've held a jelly doughnut while sketching!!

Shockingly, it was my mother (only from the waist up) when I came home unexpectedly from school one day when I felt sick. That was an eye-opener.

You didn't ask when; you asked where. I was in a very tiny bedroom in New York City.

Does changing my nephew's diaper count? I guess I saw a naked man when I was almost 18 and started doing incredibly naughty things in the back seats of cars. It was difficult to see, though, because of the darkness and all the beer we drank. And you are fuckin beautiful. I'm hungry. I wish I had a donut. Love, Janie

Sex-play as a 11-year-old with my two female cousins. I know ... I'm a deviant!
By: Bryan Jones on July 10, 2013
too cute. not really sure, myself!
By: TexWisGirl on July 10, 2013
You mean besides rounding a few bases at the drive-in movie? Probably 16 years old, at "her" house. My folks never went anywhere. :(

I, too was a junior in 1969 and dating the boy/man that was to become my husband 1.5 years later.....which would coincide pretty close to the time a saw a naked man. What a dull girl I was.
By: Cheryl P. on July 10, 2013
I'd have eaten the Donut and completely forgotten to draw! If it counts - I was about 11 when my mate showed me the videos he'd found at the back of his Dad's wardrobe...

Do your followers know how to be evasive. They can go to great lengths to say nothing. Catalogs were excellent. so wee national geographics! Does this count?

The first view was of Jayne Mansfield, in a magazine at the barber shop. My first in the flesh moment was when I visited a house in the red light district when in high school. Saw quite a bit that night.

I'm pretty sure the first totally naked guy I ever saw was my first husband--when we were in college and engaged but not yet married. I was 20. (I know--I was slower than most!)
By: Eva Gallant on July 10, 2013
Well, the first naked member I saw was in the bottom of the stairwell outside my grandpa's basement. It was a two-for-one deal, with several of us neighbor kids hanging out. I saw one of each kind, if you know what I mean. We were probably 10-11 years old.

I was in the baby's room -- my little brother -- and discovered that when Mom took his diaper off, his little sprinkler peed into the air like a fountain. I was 9 and amazed! LOL
By: Lexa Cain on July 10, 2013
Not counting little brother diaper changes and bathes, probably future husband in high school. Great story.
By: Charlotte on July 10, 2013
Not counting family members or naked playmates as a toddler? Probably when I was 13 and a friend at a sleepover put in her father's porn video. I guess it also counts as the first time I saw people having sex!

I can't remember my first time seeing a nude but I took life drawing, too, and the first model was a man.
By: Madeleine McLaughlin on July 11, 2013
Well, it wasn't in an Art class, that's for sure.
By: Fran on July 11, 2013
Probably a life drawing class too, when I was 17. I don't remember feeling any real attraction to either the male or female models actually. I found drawing a smashed up old Coke can more exciting. :D

I can't say. You've inspired me to do a post on this subject.

The first time I saw a naked woman was when my mother took my sister and I to see the movie "The Harrad Experiment." It was awful drack, but it had a lot of naked girls in it. My mother was positively mortified. Even more so when I wanted to get a ticket for the next show. My first real live naked girl? You may remember, I joined the Navy when I was 18. So 18.

By the way? I LOVED that picture. But, it hurt my back. When I fell out of my chair.
By: Al Penwasser on July 11, 2013
Okay, ONE LAST TIME. I'll echo Mimi's "we won't discuss it." I walked in on Mom and Dad when I was about seven. I still carry the emotional scars of that event. Plus, I really don't buy that whole "Mom had a stomachache and Dad was trying to make her feel better" canard.
By: Al Penwasser on July 11, 2013
If you don't count family, I suppose it would be pictures, in "those" kind of books that one of my friends had stashed. Not being very old (8-9, tops?) I didn't really think much of them. I was asked by a professor to model in college for an art class (one of several, I don't flatter myself), but I couldn't have. I think the art students would have run out of red from the blushing I would have done! Cat

Maybe it was lucky you had a jelly donut in your hands when she took her clothes off.... who knows what you would have done with your hand if not holding that donut.

The first non-photo, non-family member was someone's whose name I have conveniently forgotten. The rest - I remember well.
By: Hilary on July 17, 2013
Do you still draw nice feet and if so, why?
