Baring baby bumps.

Post by Syl on Wed Jun 28, 2017 12:54 pm

Do you like seeing pictures of naked women posing whilst sporting a huge baby bump, or do you think some things should be left private?

I actually think pregnant women look beautiful. If the photo is tastefully done it can empower other pregnant women who may not feel that attractive whilst they are carrying.

Serena Williams is the latest  well known woman to bare all.

It's tedious.    Would everyone feel the same if she were fat and 70?   It's just more silly attention seeking and I'm not sure exactly where this 'empowerment' comes from.   What's empowering about getting your kit off and simpering on the cover of a magazine?

No I'm not particularly bothered about seeing a big belly of a stranger, means nothing to me.

Might be a type of sexual fantasy for some men though - Id imagine that's the only type of person who's going to give more than a passing glance.

Its a complete turnaround to how pregnant women were treated decades ago though...so that's good.

I believe the queen was very seldom photographed when she was pregnant with her chidren...it wasn't considered proper.
Pregnancy is natural.....I quite like seeing the pics, though I think Beyoncé overdid it.

Is it attention seeking? I don't see it like that, I think its just another way to show off a womans beauty.

Its not empowering to get your kit off, but it may be empowering for other less confident women to see that pregnant women can and do look beautiful.

I didn't think of it being a sexual turn on for men, I imagine it appealing to women a lot more than men.

I agree with you. It's kind of a contemporary art form in photography, and it's double-taking, but wholly natural and beautiful. Causes you to think differently.

I like your reference to what went on before, because it puts it into context. Why was it taboo before? That's silly and unnecessary. Good on you for bringing up that point.

Thank you Quill.

Many things were taboo till fairly recently, some still are shied away from talking about.
Personally I think talking and discussing anything that was previously hidden underground is a good thing.

Women always looked nice when pregnant, yes they wore smocks as I did, but always looked nice. No need for naked pics, not lovely just plain boring.

My point was, apart from her partner and immediate family and friends and any random man who has a pregnancy fetish.....

Who the fuck is interested?????

I should say that taking all your clothes off to expose your most intimate parts and posing for the media was attention seeking. What other reason do they do it for? Beyonce is beautiful, but she's a performer, and that's what she's doing when this happens.

There was something about Beyoncé and her bump that irritated me, it was like she thought she was the Madonna or something, she went totally over the top.
The usual pics of heavily pregnant women are not showing their most intimate parts. They are not showing more than if they were topless on the beach, it's just that their belly is the focal point......I don't see any harm in that.

----

Yes, showing selfies/ magazine photos of the unclothed  pregnant body is similar to showing pics of women breastfeeding - in that they are both a fairly modern trend.
PLUS they both tend to divide opinions down the middle.


Whenever I see a selfie of a pregnant celeb, I always inwardly congratulate  her on the delirious joy of getting pregnant.


Yes hundreds of famous women now post the obligatory selfie instagram, snapchat fb  ....or have their photos in glossy mags. Good luck to them.

I am going to post  a few such pics. their faces are well known so I won't even bother to name them. Laughing

Yes do, I'm on a tablet and can't post pics on it.
I think one of the first pics of a nude pregnant celeb I ever saw was Demi Moore, and she looked gorgeous.

Lovely.
I have one of me many moon's ago, on a beach, in a bikini, about 8 months pregnant. My OH took the pic and he loved it.

I hope other women, if they do feel self conscious or ugly when pregnant, (and I know some do) realise that their bodies are just as lovely when pregnant....just in a different way.

They are quite lovely, and it's a special time. Should be recorded in a pic.

Let's get something straight. The only people interested in a woman's bump is surely her family and friends?

Why else would anyone actually bloody care to see another woman's bump??? And why do the majority of women feel this pressing need to show every single fucking thing they're doing??

What next? "Look how heavy my periods are and how many blood clots I've lost?"
Then a photo of their sanitary towel???

"Pic of me pissing!!! Lol!"

"TAking a big shit after my curry last night!! What a smell!! Pmsl!"



Sorry. Just put the fucking camera away you vain boring people.

Don't get me wrong, I don't find it offensive nor am I bothered enough to even remark on it usually, it's only because the thread is here that I'm commenting, but if a woman came up to you in the pub and said "Look at my bump!" you'd probably exclaim something nice and polite to her face and then turn to your mate and say

"I don't know her why would I want to see her baby bump?!"

Celebrities seem to think we need to know and see everything about them except of course, their pre-photoshopped photos, their monthly period knickers and when they're having a bad hair or spotty face day. Oh and then of course, you get the ones that love showing themselves off half-naked in selfies and then moan when the paparazzia snap them topless on holiday. Rolling Eyes
Pfffff whatever.

Did you go up to complete strangers and expect them to marvel at your bump?

Well brace yourself, cos they're all at it.
The reason why I posted so many pics in this thread is to remind people that everyone (nearly) is doing it.
Love it or hate it, it's the new trend.
It's only done in magazines and social media tho. NEVER in real life.

Both statements are equally wrong cos no one should speak on behalf of others.
IMO the only accurate thing to say here, is that  it divides opinions down the middle, which is what I said earlier.

The preggy images on glossy mags are the result of celebs being approached and paid HUGE sums, for such pics.
The preggy images on social media are the result of the followers/fans of celebs begging them to post such pics - .
The pics boost magazine sales, and boost their social media fan base, and yes it boosts the celebs' egos too.
Eddie, those dirty bodily functions do not even cross my mind, all I see are healthy glowing people displaying a miracle of nature that no laboratory can ever replicate.

The pics boost magazine sales, and boost their social media fan base, and yes it boosts the celebs' egos too.
Eddie, those dirty bodily functions do not even cross my mind, all I see are healthy glowing people displaying a miracle of nature that no laboratory can ever replicate.

I suppose its one of those things, like breast feeding in public, that people have different opinions on.
I'm not say people who don't want to see naked pregnant women are the same people who don't want to see mothers breast feeding in cafes, but everyone is entitled to an opinion.

I like the idea of all mums to be having pics taken whilst they are in full bloom, its something to look back on later in life.
Even if the only people who see the photos are you and your OH...its a lovely image to capture.

Why else would anyone actually bloody care to see another woman's bump??? And why do the majority of women feel this pressing need to show every single fucking thing they're doing??

What next? "Look how heavy my periods are and how many blood clots I've lost?"
Then a photo of their sanitary towel???

"Pic of me pissing!!! Lol!"

"TAking a big shit after my curry last night!! What a smell!! Pmsl!"

Sorry.  Just put the fucking camera away you vain boring people.

Ladies shit??  I did not know that.  I thought their sanitary napkins somehow whisked everything away without showing.

Eds I don't know why you are so obsessed with this.  Consider a pic of a belly bump as a new art form...it may not be a new form, but it is a new style within a form.  It's the body...a little sexy, a little smooth and curvy, and we're curious about something that has been kept as a secret from us.  And--oh hey--it's really nice.

I think a lot of the dissonance is that you can't quite define it.  That happens with a lot of new art.  They called it Impressionism, after Paris art reporter Louis Leroy
in April, 1874 sarcastically called it nothing more than the artist's impression...like it was meant to be a derogatory comment:

Charivari wrote:Impression--I was certain of it.  I was just telling myself that, since I was impressed, there had to be some impression in it...and what Freedom, what ease of workmanship!  Wallpaper in its embryonic state is more finished that that seascape.

I think you are going through a similar experience.  You don't know how you feel about it.  You want to relate...but you don't know how.  Like, it's nice, a bit naughty...and all too personal.  It's art.

If you look at many of the old masters paintings...they often depict pregnant women in various states of undress.
The only difference now is the image is captured on photo rather than in oils.

No one is arguing against your last paragraph. That wasn't the topic for debate.

No quill. That's entirely nothing like what I said or how I feel.

So I'll direct you to all my posts in this thread and leave it there.

Yes eds, my quotes of your posts are exactly what you said, and apparently what you feel.  I'll leave it there.

Yes it's an "art form" perhaps you're right and if that's the case so is a used tampon, with the right lighting and camera angle....each to their own.  Me? Not so much.

Or perhaps I'm right and it's just people being really boring and showing strangers a bump that has no meaning to the said stranger. I have pregnancy photos and the only people who are interested are the people interested in me and my baby....but perhaps I'll take it round the streets tomroow and ask complete strangers if they're one bit interested.

I love photos of classy nakedness that is artsy btw. Ive made collages of naked people pictures. So your last paragraph is complete tosh.

Some might consider that art.  I don't.  But I'll allow as how...

Today, a distinction has to be made between art and shock.  Representation is not the standard, however.

I don't think big bare naked pregnant bellies are shocking anyone Quill...they are just not to everyones taste.
Most art is subjective...look at Lowry or Dali.

It's not that I missed the point,. I was making a fresh point of my own. You mentioned dirty bodily functions in a thread about pregnant women - ie you are deffo linking the two issues in your subconscious and that's poor!!


You did collages of naked people? ---- well these are just naked people with big tummies. Not such a leap is it?


Also, most people seem to forget that these celebs only put their photos on social media, for their followers and friends. They have not put their photos on forums and blogsites. They cannot be blamed if people decide to transfer their pics to forums for discussions. Smile

I wasn't referring to pregnant bellies. I was responding to eds remark about used tampons.

Boring baby bumps more like. It's already the fashion to bear one's beer belly and fat arse, so do we really need more naked bumps?
