Nudity and sexuality are treated as a double standard in our society, in the sense that they are used for advertising and selling but when it comes to normal bodies and normal people they are being censored on social media. Instead of being appreciated and celebrated, nudity and sensuality are used as a product for consumption.
Being taught to hide our intimate body parts we end up feeling ashamed, and this can lead to low self-esteem, and decreased sexuality. Perzik is a platform that fosters body acceptance by embracing nudity. Despite the common sentiment nude photos can have important benefits for our physical and mental health.
Connect with your sensuality
Especially for people who feel disconnected from their bodies or embarrassed of it, taking nude selfies can be very liberating. Often traumatic experiences can lead to many feeling ashamed or guilty about their bodies and they end up covering their intimate parts every time they engage in intercourse.
Nude selfies and selfies in general are discouraged by many due to the fact that they promote narcissism. Although this sort of vanity is being negatively perceived by modern societies, a healthy relationship with your body is crucial for your general physical and mental health. By seeing your naked body you are able to be objective and appreciate its beauty.
Boost your self-esteem
In this world of social media, natural beauty has lost its meaning. Snapchat filters and Instagram profiles promote an altered image of what kind of body type, hairstyle, face structure is considered pretty, and people can easily get caught up in this and start feeling not beautiful enough. However, if you take out all the clothing, makeup, and accessories you can see clearly your own beauty. For this reason, taking nude pictures of your body can enhance your confidence and give you the self-esteem boost that modern beauty standards take away from you.
Sharing your nude selfies with Perzik
Most people feel the need to send nude pictures to their partners but nudity doesn’t have to be only about satisfying your romantic relationship. In fact, sharing those nude photos with your friends can facilitate body acceptance.
perzik is a social media platform where users can upload their nude photos and their followers can give gifts and/or comment on them. Astrid Lucy, the creator of Perzik.xyz says:
My vision for Perzik is to create a culture free of the toxic shame and negativity tied with being naked.
In this way, people can be objective about their appearance, be free of societal restrictions, and exchange advice. Fostering an active community around nudity can help people realize their own sensuality and boost their self-esteem by accepting their bodies.
