Has modeling affected your art? Do your friends and family know about your art modeling work? I find this fascinating, thought I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination. How his seeing how others viewed him and how it changed his own perspective as an artist is quite interesting. We all see that same world through different eyes.

In the name of research, I asked a couple of male friends. Bar the communal showers after sporting get-togethers, the average British man is pretty prudish when it comes to getting his kit off in front of others, which does nothing to dispel the myth that British men are uptight and inhibited. Many gyms these days have enclosed single showers and while there will always be the peacocks you know those guys with the great bodies who strut around, happily naked , men are generally bashful when it comes to being nude, sometimes even in front of their own partners. Most of the men I spoke to said they were pretty much OK with being naked in front of strangers, but said they felt shy in front of men that they knew.
