like, it’s taboo, so we keep it under wraps, but when we’re at home alone, and the only audience is one we can’t really see,and might as well not exist, it gives the courage to set ourselves free from inhibition a little bit. so, seen in that light, naked pics become less about finding a mate, and more about liberating ourselves from our fucked up sex-negative culture (with all of its fucked up fat-phobic, ableistic, cissexist, heteronormative, sexist values)

yeah, I guess it’s as simple as that, and really human beings have, from the time they’ve been able to replicate themselves in imagery, wanted to document their naked bodies in some way. Maybe it just seems more widespread now since cameras and the internet are much more accessible. But I’m wondering if there is like, a biological, or like, instinctual reason behind it. Like, why do so many people (including myself) want to show a large portion of the world what’s underneath their clothing? like, is this an ancient trait once found in early man now manifesting itself differently or more prominently by way of new technology? like maybe it something instinctual related to reproduction and the search for a mate? idk. like, I don’t necessarily think of it in this way consciously, but this desire to post naked pictures on the internet is actually just an urge, and I’m wondering if it occurs for reasons beyond that which we can actually vocalize rn?
