Photographers getting aroused during naked photo shoots?

Merczateers Featured By Owner May 8, 2011
I have to shoot nude portraits and implied nudes for school, however this is always difficult because I... erm... This is kinda embarrassing but I get aroused. I am a bisexual woman you must know and just seeing a naked body well, causes a reaction. I was wondering whether it was normal and whether anyone else experienced this and how they dealt with it...

It's not that there is any malice in my shoots or that the poses are erotic (I never shoot open legged shoot or such, I shoot a model's back or covered breast most of the time) but it sort of just gets me aroused for no reason be the subject male or female. What say you?

Seems normal to me.

Take 2 minute fap breaks.
That should do it.

Gasp, getting aroused at a naked body! You're fine - definitely not the only one. So long as you don't do anything rash because of it, don't worry about it.

Get laid before you start a shoot.

Dr. Internet here,

I also run into a similar situation when shooting nudes but being a grown man, I have a much tougher time hiding that than a woman probably would. Unless of course, she's a shemale, in which case we're on even ground. Whenever I do a shoot with a beautiful woman or an androgynous young man, my trembling truncheon of terror has to be tucked back. Either that or I have to think of something completely unrelated that doesn't make me aroused. Usually this means thinking of something or someone I hate, like Glenn Beck or The Police (The band, not the law enforcement officials). The fastest way for me to kick myself back into reality is to picture Gabe Newell's face, then I can't get aroused for days.

In any case, having your body respond to the presence of a naked body is perfectly natural. As long as you don't misbehave, it's not an issue. The only person who really will know about it is you, and as long as you keep to yourself and don't openly display your proud girl-boner, the model will leave none the wiser.

Try not to pay attention to it or think about it and just concentrate on what your work, that way he/she won't notice it ether. Also, try taking a cold shower before the shoot if you can.

Nothing wrong, it's natural. Might be a bit flattering to the subject. Just keep to yourself while shooting the pics, and you're good =]

I don't like you comparing bisexuality to you being unable to keep your crotch dry seeing a naked body. I'm fucking dikey as hell but I still do fine when a hot chick comes along at life drawing classes or something like that.

Some people have a harder time with it though, sexual prefrences aside.
