I personally think that honesty is the most important virtue about any person. Being honest means that you have enough respect and love for yourself to not lie about who you are, what your passions are, or what you love. It isn't always easy being honest, and we're fed so much hypocrisy growing up that sometimes lying about who we are becomes a second nature.
All those lies eventually make us hate who we are, they make us hate the beautiful things about life. They make us beauty-haters. I always feel confused when I see someone praising some imaginary values at the top of their lungs; I don't know whether to feel sorry for them or despise them for their lost souls.
It's very similar when I hear about a friend who discovers that his/her partner lied about some profound things about who they are. I always feel sorry for my friends and their lying partners, because I know that both of them wasted their time loving imaginary characters.
I think that those who feel how hurtful dishonesty is are those who have to be dishonest to avoid being harmed by others. Persecuted people sadly still exist in this world, and I think that the most painful thing about persecution is that you have to lie about who you really are.
I recently shared my fascination about nudes with a friend of mine that I care for. She accepted it, and I feel more secure now knowing that I am there as myself, not as an imaginary someone else who's slightly or grossly different.
I never lied about my passion for beauty. How can you be ashamed of admiring your values being embodied in a simple picture of a beautiful female, of reveling in the beauty of humanity?
Lying about our interests, our passion, or our love for ourselves turns us into mechanic monsters who don't have the ability to tell between who they really are and whom they pretend to be. It's far from being pleasant, it's outright dangerous.
Nikkala's Stott most remarkable feature has to be her eyes. They truly glisten whenever she smiles, again, filling whoever who's lucky enough to witness her smile with a sense of beauty and love for life.
This gallery is an innocent joke on the common request to see Nikkala Stott fully nude, which hasn't been fulfilled to date. What Nikkala really shows in this gallery, apart from her amazing self-confidence and goodness-dispersing beauty, is a very lucky stuffed toy. A beaver with the flag of Canada - the country of Dwayne, and the location where this was shot - on it. That lucky beaver is even up for sale on eBay right now.
I think that we're very lucky to witness such kindness and beauty. Whether full frontal nudity is an element or not. Beauty isn't about genitalia, it's about personality, and Nikkala has more than enough of that.
Every website that is has an ethical philosophy strives to show the human side about its models, those women who brighten their pages and make the wonderful but tiring process of capturing beautiful process worthwhile. Most people say that they envy photographers for the fact that they get to meet the models, and I do agree. However, my envy is more related to the fact that they get to interact with the models, to see the human side that makes their beauty so striking, so real.
I have seen many nudes during the three positive years during which this website has been online, and I have to admit that I did see a lot of models who meet the 'beauty standards', with all the right measurements, facial symmetry, and even nationality. However, a lot of those models didn't appear truly beautiful in their images, and those who did always turned out to have great personalities - as evidenced in many interview videos that some websites have. I personally think that it's this human aspect that makes nudes, or human beauty, have that strikingly powerful uplifting effect on my psyche.
Cynicism is always a temptation in real life. It's more than easy to be unethical and to justify it through the belief that human nature is evil - religiosity is also a form of passive aggressive cynicism. It's a positive feedback cycle, unethical behavior tends to create more unethical behavior, and ethical behavior tends to promote ethical behavior, there's nothing mysterious about that.
So, in the times when it seems that I am floating in a sea of hypocrisy and corruption, nudes serve as an oasis. As a testament to human greatness and to human beauty. Nudes with a personal twist are even more alluring, they provide an impetus to be ethical, to remain faithful to one's own ideals. To reach my potential. They're hope. Hope for a better future and a better world. I have explained many times why any legislation that is out there to outlaw the display of the human body, one of the strongest characteristics and most beautiful aspects of humanity, is a tyranny's way of suppressing hope by promoting all that's unethical and depriving us of the respect that we have to ourselves as individuals, as a species, and as living beings.
In those Canada candids, Dwayne and Leanne Bell decided to share the experience that they had with the models. To allow us to take a peek behind the curtains and find out the secret to a woman's beauty. I hope that you'll like it.
This is one of the very few times that I will actually recommend that you join a website, but take my word on this, this gallery is simply amazing. It was really tough choosing those few images out of the many fantastic images that are in there. If you're a fan of Nikkala Stott, Peta Todd, or human beauty, then get a BodyInMind membership, you won't regret it. If you do, you can write to me and I will gladly take the blame. Just tell me off in an e-mail.
There is a universal human language. It doesn't matter if you're stranded in a foreign country without knowing a local word, people will still know that you're in distress without you having to say a word. This is also true of the presence of a universal human beauty, a beauty that is in all of us, but that is clearly manifest in all of Nikkala's pictures. It takes time and patience to master one's own beauty, and it takes a great soul in order to be able to inspire others by it. This is why I know that most of the models that appear here on GN are beautiful, and this is why I am sure that Nikkala is a very special person in real life.
Take a look at her Page 3 (page3.com) pictures - she's currently on the front page - and make a simple comparison. Despite all the horrible make up she still retains her beauty and offers something that transcends all the silly make up and props, she offers a glimpse of the ultimate human beauty. A beauty of self-achievement and self-respect, a beauty of being able to be the mistress of her own self.
That beauty shines in all those BodyInMind pictures more than the pictures available anywhere else, and the reason is simple, simplicity. Dwayne Bell knows what human beauty is and he knows that it doesn't need any silly props - there are a few exceptions, some of his new galleries have such strange props - so he doesn't ask for any. There recently was a set called Take 5, in which the natural spontaneous beauty of the model resulted in a photo shoot more beautiful than the intended one. This is one of the things that I like about BodyInMind, their understanding and respect for human beauty. Few people are brave enough to acknowledge the importance of beauty in our lives, and even fewer people are brave enough to admit it and to present that beauty to the world.
I do feel lucky that I have the privilege of giving the gift of beauty to the world. Giving away something that can actually make a difference.
As Dwayne always says: Think beautiful!
This is a gallery of some screenshots from the HD version of Nikkala Stott's "a little hitch video". It contains lossless PNG images which are quite large in size, loading it will take a while, so I only recommend visiting it if you have a fast Internet connection.
Nikkala Stott is a modern day goddess, she doesn't need an Atheneum, and neither does she punish those who are lucky enough to witness her glory. I think that we're very lucky that she has decided to pose for all those BodyInMind galleries, and more recently, BodyInMind videos.
Nikkala Stott is one of the most beautiful women in the world, but what is it about her that makes her so graceful, so charming? It can't be anything about her body, as there are other models with perfect bodies but who are not as beautiful. Is it that her photos appeared at BodyInMind, there are other models on BodyInMind who are also beautiful, but there aren't a lot of models who are as special as Nikkala Stott.
I think it has something to do with a certain spark in her eyes, something mysteriously related to her mind, to her ideas, to the hope in her eyes when she looks in the distance, to the ambition she displays when she looks up to the sky, or to her confident benevolence. It's something related to all those ideals that make us who we are, the ideals without which we lose our identity and become mindless parasites instead of glorious creators.
She represents humanity, she looks like the rest of us, but she's different. She's not afraid to have a vision, an individual spirit. She's not ashamed of who she is and of what she has achieved and can achieve. Shame only brings humiliation, and a free human being can never be hurt or humiliated.
What makes Nikkala beautiful is her humanity that she boldly displays. The humanity that she has managed to preserve. The humanity, that once we discover, we become truly free.
What makes Nikkala beautiful is her freedom and her ideals, those are the things that make all of us beautiful.
There are very few people in the world who are as beautiful as Nikkala Stott. Few people who possess a smile as powerful as hers, who have such an amazing grace and self-confidence, who have discovered their beauty like she did.
I have read many people complain about the fact that they have never seen Nikkala Stott nude, which is strange, as what matters isn't full-frontal nudity, what matters is the beauty that permeates her wonderful pictures. The feelings that those pictures awaken in you, and the dream of a better world that they portray. This is the most important quality of any photo shoot, its ability to make us think.
This is exactly what makes Body In Mind my favorite website, their respect for the feminine beauty. That's why it's one of the few places that Nikkala Stott's pictures have appeared.
One of the things that I hate about Playboy is how Hugh Hefner is portrayed, especially when new models have moved in to live in the mansion with him. This image of a rich man collecting women for decoration is something that I find very offensive. This is not taking nudity and the liberation associated with it to the next level, this is a clear message that women are supposed to be collectible items, or trophies to be left at the swimming pool.
It brings back images of gangsters, those tux-clad bad guys who in the movies have girls in bikinis massaging their backs. This is an image that does portray the disrespect of those men for life, and therefore for women. However, taking it as a symbol of power and making it something to be desired is actually marketing a new form of consumerism, that of females, not of female beauty.
In the latest issue - July/August 2009, there are images of him being surrounded by girls at his birthday party with a quote that says "I keep getting older, but they stay the same age." - Page 8, the last sentence of the first paragraph.
I found that quote quite obnoxious. They stay the same age probably because the older they get the more they are "retired". They're being constantly pushed through the barbie-shaped pores of a high-efficiency filter, and those who are kept behind are washed off the filter, which is later reinstalled for another round of detecting "expired goods".
It's as if being old is okay for a man, but is not for a woman. What a respectful statement to make!
Let's just keep chasing those cars and those girls who come with them as a package. Let's hide behind expensive commodities and money that was probably obtained through overcharging for commodities or depriving the real heroes, the models, of money that they deserve. We will sure be rich and hungry for attention, but will we be happy? I truly doubt it.
This is the latest Nikkala Stott video from Body in Mind, I hope that you will like it. Nikkala has a heavenly grace that's sure to lighten your day.
Is there any damage caused by anyone saying that beauty is more determined by a woman's actions - what is commonly referred to as inner beauty - than by her external appearance? I know that many would claim that beauty is a combination of both, and I do agree to an extent, but I think that a woman's personality and determinism matter more than the shape of her legs or the state of her breasts. How can I be saying something so outrageous when all that I feature can be mistaken for a collection of external beauty?
I think that external beauty is limited to what a woman can do with a simple comb and scissors. Beauty can not be bought in $100 packages or a collagen treatment. That sort of image of beauty, backed up by communist-like propaganda-type of commercials and magazines, is merely a distraction. Why should a woman who is brave, unique, and intelligent spend 2-3 hours a day caring about how she looks like? Isn't this a waste of her time and her personal qualities?
Most women are beautiful by nature, we must help them free themselves of that beauty obsession and to let them do the things that are truly beautiful. They are not sculptures, and we should never marginalize their role to being "cute little things" who should stand aside and just inspire men to work hard - be real-life pin-ups. Women are capable of working and of exploiting their own potential, of building their own future, they can be beautiful and still manage to do all of those things, but I doubt that it will all be possible if they assume the role of "male motivators". Catalysts don't take part in a reaction after all, they just lowe the activation energy.
One may be motivated to work hard as to be able to offer his beloved partner a better life, but this is not the sole role of the partner, who may work just as hard to improve the common life that they share.
By analyzing the external factors that make a woman beautiful then we end up with an image that falls apart pretty quickly. Women don't come from a barbie factory machine, they are not cast into a perfect shape. We can claim that shapely long legs look good on all women, but there are women who look better in differently shaped legs. We can claim that D-cup breasts should be the golden standard, but some women look amazingly better in B-cup breasts. There is just no standard, and I don't think that real life beauty follows all those fashion-industry beauty standards anyway.
If I claim that all good successful men have to look good, what response do I expect to get? There are just too many examples out there that will prove that my claim is false. There is no actual separation between how a person looks on the outside and his/her inner personality. We have all come across people who posess a good deal of physical beauty, but who are repulsive. Physical beauty can inspire vanity and a sense of entitlement. Claiming that "spiritual" beauty can't exist without external beauty is somewhat absurd, as there is no real separation. Beauty is a whole quality, it is something that one can sense and see. Most of us have fallen in love more than once, and I tend to assume that every person's Isolde doesn't look like Nikkala. When one is in love, one sees beauty as the whole quality that it really is.
It is true that beauty can make a fleeting appearance in a free giggle, a quick smile, or a graceful movement of happiness. That appearance is seen as beauty by the "beholder", but it is not that leap into the air that makes a woman beautiful, it's what motivated her to leap into the air, her own sense of her own beauty. Most of us can safely say that Nikkala is beautiful, but it's not the shape of her body - that merely is what made her qualify as a model, it is what I assume to be inner values when I see her letting a carefree smile adorn her face. The smile is a secondary thing, not the primary "cause" of her beauty.
What is the use of bravery if one doesn't get to use it? "Beautiful" girls don't fight after all, they may break a nail.
There are no ghosts and corpses in beauty. The "soul" and the body should not be separated, one is whole, and so is one's beauty.
The "ugly angel" is not ugly, angels are not and can't be ugly. Women are not products, they don't have different ratings for physical beauty and inner beauty in which the lack of one makes the other useless.
If we claim that only physically beautiful women who possess qualities of true beauty are beautiful, then what we are creating is the ultimate imposter ideal. It's like we suddenly have a template, and it is like saying that all real-life women who can not qualify as models are either "mindless babes" or "ugly angels", i.e. are not beautiful. I think that such a claim can be easily contradicted through a short walk through a park, or a visit to the nearest secular charity organization, or even a simple look into the face of the person sleeping next to you in the morning.
Most females inherently know that they are beautiful, we should never attempt to undermine this sense of self-worth and the pursuit of happiness and personal qualities in the favor of an industry or an ultimate aphrodite. Artemis was just as beautiful, right?
I do not think that what makes Nikkala Stott so beautiful is her body or its proportions, a lot of statues have the same "perfect" proportions. It's deeper than that. A primate looks different from a human male, and is about as far from a man, it's really not about the exotic look, it's about much more than that.
I think that it's all in her eyes, in the serenity in her facial expression, and in the trust that her nudity represents.
She offers a glimpse into a world that transcends our own, a world of morality and free ideas. A world where all human beings are born equal, where exploitation is an obsolete word, where jails are turned into schoolsÂ¸ where wars do not exist, where you can wish anything unpleasant away, where there are no pressures, where there are no stress-related diseases, where there are no borders, where we are the intelligent force that protects nature and the universe. It's a dream that reality always shutters.
Her being there makes it a reality, maybe for less than a fleeting nanosecond, but a nanosecond can sometimes be worth a lifetime.
