Is Sending Nude Pictures Normal or Healthy?

Published by: Holistic Wisdom on 8th Jun 2011 | View all blogs by Holistic Wisdom
Unless you don’t follow the news, you most likely have heard about the huge controversy surrounding lascivious photographs sent from Rep. Anthony Weiner's (D-N.Y.) Twitter account to multiple women while his wife was unaware and apparently is pregnant.

Is it normal to send nude pictures?

Many men send pictures of their penis to those they are sexually interested in and it is quite common. In fact, it is not only common but done by normal, healthy men who simply want to feel sexual appreciation. Women also do it (especially with emphasis on their breasts).

However, when it is done at the cost of a relationship or career there is a deeper issue; but sending lascivious pictures in and of itself is quite normal.

Unfortunately, Weiner’s choice to send his pictures was and will be at great cost to him personally and professionally. Choices like this, that carry a great deal of risk to one’s wellbeing and that of those they love, should always be more deeply evaluated as most likely there is a much deeper issue rather than just being an act of fun, sexual flirtation.

Healthy sexuality comes from knowing one’s self and honoring who we are through our behavior. Sending sexual pictures is appropriate when-

  • They are sent to someone who wishes to receive such pictures.
  • You are single or in an honest and open relationship.
  • What you are doing in those pictures is of a consenting adult(s).
  • You are not doing something that is illegal.
  • You have fully thought through the repercussions of sending such pictures and are willing to stand by your choice for the rest of your life.

    I agree. My ex and I used to send nude pics to one another all the time. It was part of our courtship and made for hot phone sex when we were away from one another. I think it is pretty common. However, I do think that if you are married and doing it on the sly it is a pretty crappy thing to do and is uncool.

    I've done it. I admit it, but I wasn't in a relationship at the time. That to me is kind of over the line, unless you are in some kind of open relationship.

    My husband and I have done it. It's fun and harmless for the most part.
