Take note: Different forms of intimacy.
I would feel so bad washing this off, holy shit
You could take a bath afterward with the artist and they can wash it off for you so you don’t feel responsible for their work. But also, it could teach the same kind of patience and concept that nothing lasts forever, similarly to the Tibetan Buddhist sand mandala tradition. And it could be just another step in your process of intimacy. Just a thought.
I want to paint on someone holy shit.
Babe: You’re obligated to do this now.
man, would love to have the type of friendship with people where we could all sit around topless, babes and dudes, and just paint on each other, and drink a little and laugh a lot
bolding last comment since not everything that looks intimate doesn’t really have to be
I think this is one of those times where it might be awesome to differentiate between “intimate” and “erotic”?
It can be totally intimate and still completely platonic. Human realtionships can be wonderful like that.
One of my friends is a nudist, and he and I had a naked wrestling match once. His family vacations were usually to nudist resorts, so nudity has no sexual connotations for him. Something amazing about nudists is that they don’t judge you based on what your body looks like; fat vs skinny body-shaming is practically non-existent because they see who you are as a person, rather than dwelling on trivialities such as vanity. So the next time you look in the mirror, don’t worry about what other people say about you. Just remember that true beauty is not on the surface; those who put you down may fit society’s fabricated idea of “pretty”, but as long as you don’t judge people based on their physical appearance, you will always be more beautiful than them. True beauty comes from the same place as love, compassion, patience, and friendship, and it cannot be measured in inches or centimeters, kilos or pounds.
