Channel 4's Naked Attraction is about 5 episodes into it's run, but after only watching epsiode 1, I am hooked. It is more than just the fact that the UK based reality show actually shows.. it all. The premise is so utterly simple, yet perfectly beautiful. Perfect bodies do not = attraction.
The show begins by showing contestants 5 or 6 naked bodies, from the waste down only. You get close up views of penis's, butts, legs and feet. What it is interesting is that when you only see the bottom half, penis size and look become one of the least interesting parts of the body.
I love the woman choosing in episode one. She certainly loves and appreciates a nice penis, but she smartly also zooms in how each man is standing. She goes by some of the thinner, stereotypical hotter bodies in favor of stance and body confidence displayed.
The panels go up and at each stage she must eliminate one man. I love how fully naked contestants walk down to hug the woman who eliminated them as if it is the most normal thing on earth. Finally, the men's faces are shown and this is when the dressed contestant, must also strip down themselves.
Some of the best bodies end up acclimated and some of the 'not so perfect' bodies, end up having men with faces, and personalities far more appealing. It is an interesting experiment choosing a date based only on seeing their naked body. The body you may be most attracted to initially, may end up being a man who in the end, does nothing for you. I won't spoil the ending if you find a way to watch, the contestant in episode one, narrows her 6 to the 4 below. BTW: Third guy in regrets the drunken night that ended up with that elephant tat....
Now usually, when you see a guy wearing underwear in the shower it's a bit of turn off. But... that off switch turns quickly up to on, when the guy is Jay, and the underwear is a tight clinging wet jock strap. It helps when the guy in the shower is shot by Atlanta's PPlanet Photography.
PPlanet's Preston Woods actually first introduced me to his shots of Jay last Christmas. It occurred while I was working on a Christmas themed piece featuring Preston's images of Nicky Will (Naughty List). Nicky, along with several other models of Preston's I had featured, were all close friends of the photography.. I commented to Preston about how hot his circle of friends was. Low and behold, Preston shared his most recent shoot with Jay, another of his friends,
One of the first shots Preston sent me was the shot of Jay I used as pic of the day. If you scroll up, you'll know why it grabbed my attention. I loved Jay's facial expression, and his playful little smirk. Jay was looking back at his perfectly shaped butt, knowing....and clearly enjoying, the viewers enjoyment of his appetisingly squeezable assets. No matter where Preston shoots his models, in the shower, on a bulldozer, or in the middle of the woods, he has an eye for capturing them at their best, always pulling in pieces of their personality.
'Jay is a bit of a closet exhibitionist who loves pushing the envelope in front of the camera. Jay has been one of my favorite models to work with and this photo series... definitely his idea.'
Jay certainly knows how to work his body, and those amazing curves, in front of Preston's camera. He also has a really great face, beautiful eyes and I especially love the sexy shape of his nose and lips. Here's hoping Preston get's this friend in front of his camera again very soon. Maybe on a day he forgets his jock strap at home... We may have to wait just a little while, Preston is busy working for David Magazine in Atlanta and has been published a few times over the last couple of months. I'll bug him again soon, maybe we won't have to wait til Christmas for another present from Preston!
