this is getting out of hand
@dirt goodness gracious dirt
@Aleums i legitimately think i got chaste nudes
@ItsJenNotGabby @torie @Ophillous @dirt @barrow Barrow's photos have always come across as intimate pieces to me. It's part of what makes them so compelling.
In this scenario though, it's less of intimacy as an aesthetic property and more of intimacy in the interpersonal sense. Linking someone to your nudes on a public or platform vs. sending them private nudes in a DM have very different meanings - the latter is an intimate display of trust.
I accept that the nudes may be chaste, but aloof? Not a chance
Casual sexuality is a very real and valid thing, and we shouldn't just ignore it
I'd say that oftentimes a nude is a very intimate sign of trust, but like, there are people who are very lax about sending nudes, and peeps who send platonic nudes too
This is weird to try and word so I'm rambling
@Ophillous @a_bun @Aleums @torie @dirt @barrow yes, definitely. And I've been lucky enough on here to be trusted as that friend before, and while the nudes were great, I definitely didn't feel like they were sent to me to specifically turn ME on, so I'd classify them as chaste nudes as well. I think the senders intent has a lot to do with things

Intimate and sexual: dmed nudes, in a suggestive pose or accompanied with racy text
Non-intimate and sexual: sending someone pornography
Intimate and chaste: artful nudes can fit here, but rarely
Non-intimate and chaste: memes, selfies. Normal territory
Skull dot website is an intentionally small instance for friends.
