On the site I have been using to network with models and photographers, model mayhem, one of the things that models can specify on their profile is whether or not they do nudes. Most profiles say no. I was seeing this and getting confused because they had nudes in their portfolios but I then worked out that there is a distinction between implied nudes and nudes. Implied means that you can be technically nude but not showing your junk and full frontal is the “nudes” that people are saying yes or no to. Or so I thought.

Every now and then you’ll come across a photo of someone and it may not be on their profile but on a photographer’s profile, but sometimes it’s on their own profile, and their they are in all their glory, their tackle waving at you but their profile says no to nudes. So does no really mean no?
