Sometimes I wonder how it ended up like this, how I became the person that writes about nudes, who posed nude for a national magazine and who occasionally even tweets out naked pictures of herself. My relationship with nudity has never been a fraught one; I grew up in a house with little modesty and even less judgment. My mom bought me my first box of condoms and came to my first OBGYN appointment, and my sister and I were raised in a house full of artwork celebrating the female form in all shapes and sizes. It can be a photo in lingerie. Or it can be a completely nude photo. It can also be anything in between. It can be a photo or a video or whatever visual medium you find erotic and empowering. The first time I sent a nude I was in college, casually sexting the guy who sat behind me in my broadcast journalism class.

A decade ago, Strauss was a notorious figure: the guy who wrote that book The Game , the one about seduction, which seemed to endorse all manner of queasy notions about what it was OK for men to do on the pull. It sold 2. These days, at 46, Strauss is different. Whereas he once lived in a Hollywood man-mansion that by his own account often had used condoms floating in its jacuzzi, he now lives in relative domestic seclusion in Malibu.
Almost two years ago, Lauren quit her office job to work full time on her OnlyFans profile — posting semi-nude and nude images on the subscriber-based social network. OnlyFans describes itself as a social network, where anyone who creates content can set a monthly subscription fee for their followers. It isn't aimed primarily at people who sell nudes or explicit content — but a large amount of users are doing exactly that. A new BBC Three documentary, Nudes4Sale , meets Lauren, 23, and others like her, who say their income from sharing adult content on the site far surpasses what they could earn in regular employment. But there's a dark side: the documentary found evidence of the age verification process being circumvented, meaning unders were able to illegally sell explicit content of themselves on the site. OnlyFans users often use other social networks, like Twitter and Snapchat, to advertise their OnlyFans profiles and direct followers to them. Research conducted by the BBC found that, on a single day, a third of all the Twitter profiles analysed for the study could have belonged to an underage person.
