This gallery has some of the great Tasteful Nudes that I have been referring to. The images of Aria R in particular are amazingly beautiful. She has a beautiful smile and her images are vivid with the colors of life. I think that if Domai should have a prototype then it should consist of those images: Images of happy women whose beauty is so strong that they are not afraid of showing it to the world.
It isn't about standards or certain body features. The essence of beauty lies in the character of the model, it is the photographer's job to bring it out and to present it to the world. That's why beauty is hated and that's why it is rare. Some photographers are often careless when handling it, and some models simply don't possess it. But for those who do, they give us all a wonderful gift.
Tasteful Nudes are like a beautiful symphony, they represent the soul of the photographer and of the model. That combination, like any great symphony, is enlifting. They capture the soul of what I am trying to present on Graceful Nudes. Beauty, honest and simple. Without any shame or any degradation of the models' beauty.
Tasteful Nudes transcend the level of basic nakedness. They neither represent nor care about irrelevant details such as genitalia, simply because such approaches are not needed to make tasteful nudes complete. They represent the models, beauty, and multiple visions of a better world.
Tasteful Nudes are mainly addressed to the brains of the viewers. They respect our humanity and make us think. They directly address our most valuable possessions, our brains.
That's why I think that Tasteful Nudes are superior. That's the same reason why I think that they will outlive any insipid erotica. I may even write again in 70 years and say how it's like, if the Internet is still around that is.
This is a collection of pictures of the new models whose alluring feminine beauty is to grace Domai's members area over the period of the next four weeks.View Gallery
These days a lot of people demonstrate for various things. For more jobs, for higher wages, for less torture, and even to stop the Neo-Nazis from ruining traditional festivals. However, no one seems to care that much about beauty, about the mental prison that free citizens like you and me have to live in, just because they were born female.
Violence is something that we all abhor. No one likes to be the victim or the perpetrator of violence, but what if you train people to actually like violence. Tell them that being cut up with a knife is okay? More women than ever are admitted to operating theaters for surgeries that will not enhance the qualities of their lives and for which there is no medical indication whatsoever - operations that disfigure rather than restore. One of the basics of surgery is to never operate on someone who doesn't need an operation. What about an absolutely healthy female going under the scalpel just to have bigger breasts, to have two synthetic bags put into her? Why are those women doing that? Is it a quest for social acceptance? Or is it just going along with the pressure to conform, to tell the entire world that she can be controlled, manipulated into enjoying the results of a blade cutting her beautiful skin?
What's beautiful about breasts anyway? Why do we have to cut women down into pieces and analyze every single detail of their bodies? Who gave us the right to compare them to an "ideal" image, an image so weird that even goddesses - the subjects of paintings - would be considered too fat? Breasts on their own are not attractive, a pathologist examining a breast after a mastectomy will not find them attractive. What makes them attractive is not their size, their shape, or even their texture, it's the women who carry them. The ideas of those women, their livelihood, their life view is what makes them beautiful. Not a glossy lipstick, a perfume that makes you gasp for air, or bags inserted into their breasts. It also isn't some sort of a cellophane wrap that comes from Paris - an expensive dress, designer jeans, etc...
Beautiful women don't need feedback, don't need a surgeon-issued seal of quality - a seal of inferiority. Beauty isn't genetic, and certainly isn't synthetic. Dwayne Bell, the founder of Body In Mind, would disagree with me on this one. His view is that superficially "beautiful" women are just as good as women who radiate with true beauty. His reasoning is that those women inspire men to work hard to "earn" them, or to impress them. Isn't this what BMW's are for? Are women like consumer goods?
Well, luxurious consumer goods were despised by the authorities in soviet nations - publicly at least, their lavish private properties were often filled with expensive verbotene Ware. I think that it is true that consumer goods motivate people in capitalist economies to work and then to spend their money. All high school students are well aware of that, some of them work for long hours to buy the latest cool gadgets. The trend continues into adult life, except that the those gadgets are replaced by expensive houses and large cars as one's income increases. I am not claiming that this is bad, but if we start to say that women are like consumer goods, acting as mere motivators, then we are objectifying them, commodifying them. If they're goods then there's a price tag somewhere: blond hair, big breasts, tall legs, a flat midriff, and thighs that don't touch increase the social value and acceptance. There is even an expiry date, which is one of the many causes of that mid-life crisis. Rich men know that they need to have the latest model, a trophy wife, in order to look good.
So, what those women are doing by undergoing those surgeries is increasing their market value. I am finding it very repulsive as I am writing this.
It doesn't even stop there. Various illusions are marketed everywhere: beautiful women love violent and rough men. That simple lie makes the men act rough, it makes them make their "male habits" more prominent. That increased violence is combined with a sense of vulnerability that's implanted into the mind of every girl. Repulsive rape scenes are everywhere, and do women in those scenes get to really fight back, to tell the rapist that women aren't weak? The answer is a simple no. A woman who thinks that she's weak is going to become a victim, but she has been victimized for her entire life. It tells her that she needs male presence - the new escorts, a vestige of times long gone - to be strong, and that she loses her femininity if she doesn't silently submit to win the martyr race.
Even if we shift to the relatively mild average sitcom. A woman will always collapse after a break-up, and what will cheer her up? A makeover. The gift of her more fashion-savvy friends, who will increase her value by changing her wrapping, by giving her a redesign, by transforming her, the obsolete-model barbie, to a barbie from the 2000's, in an attempt to attract the guy who left her, or to attract a better - richer - guy. There's a clear message, which is that relationships are about good looks, no wonder the divorce rates are up through the roof.
Relationships are portrayed like a dance, in which both partners pretend that they normally walk in the same fashion as they do when they're dancing. The problem is that it's a big play, that eventually collapses, ending in a break-up, a divorce, or a miserable life in which one tries to escape from reality. Why can't men just be who they are around women, why should there always be a mask? It's a mystery, but combine that with approved violence - it's okay to willingly be a victim, and overrated emphasis on good looks, you have a recipe for a relationship that will cause everybody pain.
Some people do manage to escape that cycle, and a lot of them lead wonderful happy lives, but they are rarely there, in the Teletopia that is on TV, the place where all people are up to the South Beach standards. The Teletopia that rarely resembles reality, the reality that we live in, the reality that's distorted by the same Teletopia.
Why can't that Teletopia be full of beautiful women - those who know that their beauty isn't dictated by the numbers on the scale, their bra size, or their waist size? Why can't it be full of hard-working women? Why can't it portray the real struggles of our daily lives? Why can't it be about what we can all do to make life good for everyone of us? It's a mystery to me. However, I'd rather be single for my entire life than to be locked up in a hollow relationship. I may be too young to offer my $0.02, but it is for men to realize that beauty can't be defined and that it isn't physical, it's abstract, that means that it belongs to the world of consciousness. Violence is always a sign of weakness. Be open in your relationships and try to overcome the artificial communication barriers. Dancing all the time just makes everyone tired.
For women, I can say that beauty is inside every one of you, it is you who can bring it out, it's a process that's absolutely free. Age is not a problem, reject that expiry date, dare to change the world through your own work. Make sky the true limit, reject becoming victims, fight back, and don't be afraid to take the lead. Those things are not masculine - it's another society-imposed barrier, they're for free people, and you certainly can be free if you want to. The limits are no longer dictated by books, they're now dictated by behavior. You can always make your own future, just don't let others tell you what you're "supposed to" be. Only then you will know that you're truly free, that you're some of the brave women who were able to overcome all the prejudice, those truly beautiful heroines.
Hope for the journey is all that we need. It's the destination that keeps us rowing, it can seem real, but when we get there we can discover to our dismay that it's nothing but a mirage.
Every one of us has a different goal, a different destination that keeps him/her moving forward, but what if that destination turns out to be nothing but a figment of imagination. We often wish for things that actually make us suffer, what if that paradise is nothing but a disfigured hell?
I don't think that the problem lies in choosing the wrong destination, the problem is not spending time enjoying the journey, not feeling the spirit of the way.
We can reach the destination through greed or malice, but then we will probably realize that we have wasted our lives seeking the wrong pleasures, the wrong ideals. Shortcuts may offer temporary success, but they can never offer satisfaction.
There are a lot of optical illusions and things often aren't what they seem. However, there are things, derived from each other, that are always honest. They include beauty and ethics. Both are found in our surroundings and are just waiting to be discovered.
That's what we should hope for, the insight and the ability to discover beauty along the way, so that the journey is worthwhile, even if we arrive to the wrong island.
That's how we can build a good world.
Beauty is one of the abstract ideas that are very hard to grasp, there are a lot of persons out there who spend a lot of time trying to define it and to restrict it to certain qualities and values. Beauty is a relative thing, but there are some shared qualities that make a woman beautiful, those are the qualities that some philosophies are trying to represent, and Simple Nudes is one of those philosophies.
No, it's not yet-another-simple-nudes-vs-super-nudes argument, it's just a neutral view of a fan of both philosophies.
Simple nudes have a lot of good principles, the first of which is that natural beauty is more important than artificial one. To me, this means that a woman being herself is more beautiful than a woman trying to be someone else. Being herself means that she's confident and very comfortable with who she is, which is ironically one of the main qualities that super nudes attribute to super beauty. There are no commercials there, no lies, and no fake things. She's not nude for the sake of nudity, she's nude for the sake of freedom.
However, in practice Domai doesn't follow this rigorously, sometimes having strange nudes and labelling them as simple nudes, this often contradicts with its main philosophy. There are some common things in some of Domai's gallery that make me cringe, the most prominent of which is the use of nail polish and very neutral facial expressions in most of the galleries. Anxiety taints natural beauty, which is what they're trying to represent after all.
Also, by contrast sometimes the focus of the image is the models body. The presence of close-ups in most of the galleries and the request for full-breasted models on their photographers' page contradict once again with their philosophy. Which is to enjoy non-sexual beauty for what it is, not what others are telling us is supposed to be.
Sometimes I feel that the photographer concentrates on the model's nudity instead of focusing on her beauty and the feelings that this state gives her.
We don't live in an ideal world, therefore I understand some of those shortcomings, that's why I often go there, it would be great if we can get rid of them though.
On the other hand, super nudes, mainly represented by Body in Mind, offers what can be considered unrestricted beauty. By getting rid of all of the limits(they don't have a lot of erotic or insipid pictures there though), they promise to deliver the most beautiful pictures out there and capturing real beauty which isn't the simple "natural beauty", for natural beauty is enhanced by the artificial beauty which is the beauty that comes from the mind or in other words the model's personality.
Capturing a model's personality isn't an easy task and that's why some of their pictures don't deliver what they promise. However, I don't remember seeing a lot(any?) of close-ups there. Every image is aesthetically fulfilling.
With an update rate less than that of Domai, they claim to concentrate more on quality rather than quantity. It's easy to understand that, but honestly some of their galleries don't completely follow their standards and sometimes I feel strange when they use the word sexy to describe their models. Their theory is great and most of their updates follow their philosophy well, and I don't always like the text accompanying the galleries. For example, their latest gallery of Natalie Oxley has this paragraph:
"Guys, how many times in your life have you been sitting beside a beautiful girl at a party or friend's place and started to imagine her naked? Lost count? Us too. That's why we love this set of Natalie Oxley by R.L. Wainwright. It's like we were sitting chatting with Natalie and then she just started to strip for the fun of it. Instead of just imagining a world full of babes who love stripping off and showing off, enjoy the very real world of Body in Mind, and the happily nude ladies we adore."
This reminds me with the weird statement of Simple Nudes that you're supposed to stare at every beautiful woman walking down the street(I often am too busy to look, or have something better to do). For instance, I have never imagined a beautiful woman naked, why would I?, A beautiful woman doesn't want to hide her body, she will be comfortable being who she is, and if she's that beautiful(=interesting) then I will probably be too busy conversing with her to imagine her naked.
To me(or to Graceful Nudes, if you want to consider it a distinct philosophy), beauty isn't an obsession, it is something that makes life more fulfilling. Beauty resists aging, it comes from the mind and radiates outwards covering the while woman. Her being naked just gives you a chance to appreciate her whole beauty, her nudity represents her self-respect, appreciation of freedom, and confidence. It's not a "have sex with me", but rather a "here I am, beautiful and true" kind of nudity.
I respect both Simple Nudes and Super Nudes, for the beauty they represent and their unique approach to a subject that's often misrepresented. In my opinion, they both provide a unique experience that must be appreciated. They offer a variety that enriches the same subject. I currently prefer super nudes to simple nudes, but my opinion often fluctuates. It's that I now have a strange attraction towards vibrant colors, which are abundant in super nudes but are rare in simple nudes. My advice is that you enjoy both philosophies and then to have your own opinion. I assure you that it's going to be a very fulfilling experience.
It's a hard task choosing images for Domai galleries; there is an overwhelming amount of beauty there. It serves as a refuge from the ugliness that I am confronted with in the real world.
What's so great about Domai, in my opinion, is the non-sexual nature of the sets found there. There are no distracting elements in the images that serve to attract your attention, it's just the simple and pure beauty being captured in beautiful locations. The main goal of each set is to show you the beauty that the model has bravely chosen to share with you. I certainly wouldn't mind seeing my girlfriend on Domai knowing that she will be presented with dignity and that her beauty will be appreciated and respected by every visitor.
To me, Domai isn't about nudity, beautiful girls, or even photography. I have grown to be oblivious to the fact that the model is nude, what attracts me isn't the beauty of the model, but the beauty of what she represents by simply standing there. Being a happy part of her surroundings and embodying all the positive values in the world. Willing to receive the stones that will be thrown at her to just prove that she, her beauty, and her values exist.
There aren't a lot of web sites out there that offer you pure inspiration like Domai, the only web site that's now competing with Domai for the top position of the list of my favorites is Body In Mind, but I am sure that Domai will stay on that list for as long as I am alive.
This is a compilation of some of my favorite pictures from there, I hope that you will enjoy it.
