In many areas, I crave consistency. I like when the subway comes on time and how my hair will be reliably perfect on the third day since my last wash.

When the news broke about the celebrity nude photos that had been hacked and published online, the topic of naked selfies exploded. This is not something confined to celebrities.

Taking nude selfies is an act of erotic expression, and sharing them with a trustworthy partner can deepen your intimacy plus make for tantalizing foreplay. Sadly, the joys of this pastime are often eclipsed by anxiety over photos being stolen or shared without consent. As long as everyone involved enthusiastically consents at every step of the way, taking and share nude photos is one of the hottest things you can do.
