    (Almost) Naked Selfies

    If someone posts pics of themself regularly on facebook with hardly any clothes on, do you think deep down this is a sign of insecurity?

    I (sort of) know someone who does this. She posts tons of pics of her face, and changes her profile pic several times a week. But, she also posts a lot of pics of herself in her underwear. Sometimes she's in her bra and panties. Sometimes just panties, with one hand over her boobs and the other hand holding her phone. Her face is never shown in these pics. And she always adds captions like, "I love being me, I'm so awesome looking." or "If all women learned to love their bodies the world would be a better place." And she also says stuff like, "This is so brave of me to post this." And then a ton of people comment, saying things like, "Yes, you're so brave, you're so beautiful" etc.

    She talks a lot about loving her body... but she has (what society has decided anyway) is a perfect body. She's petite, toned and has big boobs. So it's easy for someone who looks like that to love their body. If a 400 lb women did this everyone would think it was gross and think she was crazy for loving her body.

    But, as I see these pics, the part of me who is really into psychology starts to wonder if deep down she is, in fact, really insecure. Does she really love her body or is she just seeking validation from others? What do you all think, discuss!

    Disclaimer: I posted this in Off Topic for a reason. I AM NOT looking for advice. I don't need to read 5 pages of replies from people telling me "If it bothers you so much, just unfriend her." It doesn't even bother me really. It just makes me wonder about her motives, and since social networking has such a presence in our lives, I thought this would be an interesting topic for some of the people on this forum.

    I see no problem with it. But then again, i'm a overly horny guy that loves seeing hot women in next to nothing.

    Probably as well as a person that has addiction to the attention of the opposite sex. Its rather pathetic in my estimation in any event.

    Posting pics in one's underwear? Really?

    How does she conduct herself in real life though? I guess that is what's actually important.

    I think overly sexual pictures of yourself scream insecurity and that you're looking for validation.

    It would be different if you were a model or something, but if these are pictures you take yourself it's just weird.

    Lol... I'm a bisexual female, so I think the pics are hot too. But (as lame as it sounds) her "look at me, look at me" attitude kind of ruins it. Beautiful people who don't know they are beautiful are more of a turn on.

    She has done some "modeling." But all that consists of is posing for free for armature photographers. As far as I know she's never been paid to model. But she talks like she has.

    I've never actually met her. She is a friend of my boyfriend and some of my other friends. But from what I've heard people say about her, she acts really bipolar and can be all happy one minute and going off and throwing a fit the next.

    I know this girl. She's gorgeous. She's Hispanic and white and has beautiful traits from both races. She has a perfect hourglass figure with a teeny waist, big hips, large boobs and a large behind. And she flaunts it. Everyday. She's even posted pictures of literally just her breasts. Posted pictures in her bra, posted pictures in barely there booty shorts. Like you said, if I was a guy, that would personally ruin it for me. The whole fake "cockyness" that we really know it's probably just insecurity.

    I think its great to be comfortable with your body but there is no need to take pictures of yourself half naked and post them on a social networking site for everyone to see. I think shes just looking for a ego boost.

    Yep. If she was truly happy with herself and her life, she wouldn't feel the need for *everyone* else to agree with her that she's perfect and brave and pretty and ________. I think that any time someone says something like what this woman is posting ("I'm so brave!"), what they really mean is that they feel the opposite.

    And exactly how brave is it to post flattering photos of yourself when you're young and buff? If she can still post half nekkid selfies when she's 65 and had three children by caesarian, then I'll say she's brave... but only so long as she hasn't tried to put those words in my mouth first with her own captions.
