I enjoy the outdoors, being naked outdoors is a special experience of freedom, but also of really being in your skin and the sensations abound.  Being at a resort or an identified beach is a matter of identifying with a particular comfort but doesn’t speak to the ninja in me. Finding an unexpected place of comfort and living in that moment is a real moment of feeling alive, which I guess is only further amplified by the possibility of being discovered. On this day I discovered a cove of calm bay waters beneath a bay area landmark. A rookie yes but ninja indeed.

Being on a sandy beach is definitely one of my favourite places to be so looking at this picture makes me want to get to the beach sometime soon. You’ve centered yourself well in this submission and I like how you’ve chosen to pose, I bet it felt great with the waves reaching up the shore towards your feet. -Trouble

I love being naked outdoors. The sensations of water, sun and air on my skin is, as you can tell, quite invigorating. I’m grateful for this secluded spot where I can go nude and be in the moment …

I wonder how many ninjas have their own secret secluded naked spot. I bet a lot of us. Everything is definitely heightened when you’re outdoors without clothing. I’m happy to see you made the most of it and I hope you get a lot of opportunities this summer to go to that place and enjoy all the senses. -Trouble

About ten years ago I gave submission a try. I was exhausted following an arduous 24/7 Ms relationship and thought it was what I needed. It worked for a while, and I learned a lot about myself and about submission. This is me when I was at my most submissive. I think that’s somehow evident. It was taken, by a good friend who I no longer have contact with so I can’t credit him, while on a trip to Barcelona. I haven’t submitted since and doubt I ever will, I simply couldn’t sustain it or suppress my dominant nature, but I don’t regret having done it. I’ve always found it quite an emotive shot, and I still do.

Giving yourself permission to submit and someone you trust permission to dominate you is definitely an intense bonding experience and a great way to tune into your emotions and test your own strength and toughness. You must be happy that your friend had a camera and a photographers eye to capture this beautiful photo from your first and only submissive experience. Thanks very much for sharing your story and photo with us .

Dear Ninja/Trouble, in the first place thank you both for your wonderful work! I’m very excited to submit for the very first time. I don’t know if my picture fulfills totally the theme for the upcoming sunday, but for me it felt very nice to lie in the evening sun on my balcony and take this picture. To be honest, I don’t like my body very much, but by looking at this picture I see myself other than usual. Hopefully you will like it too! By the way, the withered plant has no deeper meaning. She is on my balcony for years and I thought she should be on the picture, too :-)

I’ve definitely been guilty of keeping dead and withered plants longer than I should so I feel solidarity in knowing your little potted friend has lasted so long. I feel like your submission should be framed and hung on the walls in a gallery somewhere. The lines of the wooden floor next to the stripes of light across your skin is really visually interesting . Great work and I hope you submit to us again because you have a great eye. -Trouble

N,
I love going out trail hiking by myself. It lets me do whatever I want (read, listen to podcasts, think) and I get the added bonus of being out in nature out here in Texas. There was a trail bench that worked for a tripod and no one around, so I decided to let the fresh air brush my skin in places that usually don’t get that kind of treatment.

The colors are so nice in this photograph, and the shadows from the branches across your back and butt are very nice as well. Looks like you found the perfect place to rest your camera and pose in front of, I’m sure your private parts were very happy to feel the sun and the breeze. Thanks for sharing.

Ninjas! 
This is my first time submitting to NN, even though I’ve been following and enjoying your posts for a long time already.
I just love this weeks theme, and I had to submit! Even though I haven’t had the chance yet to actually go out into nature and take some photos, I did manage to enjoy some of the lovely summer weather on my balcony.
Feeling the sun shine on my body, combined with a slight breeze, can make everything feel alright. It feels so free, natural. It makes me never want to wear clothes again. But that’s not how society works, unfortunately. That’s also part of the reason I appreciate NN so much; promoting body acceptance, nudity, and sexuality - all things that are completely natural for human beings. 
lovethenakedlife

Happy you decided to submit. I like when a theme strikes a chord with long time followers and encourages them to submit for the first time. Your balcony looks like a heavenly place to be. Thanks for sharing this moment of you stretching out on the sun surrounded by your green. It looks like you give your plants lots of love and hopefully they return the favour. Keep up the positivity and hopefully we’ll see more from you in future SS. -Trouble

An outdoor shot from my work as alternative art and erotic nude model and artist that never made it to publication - so I thought I submit it to you!

Well it certainly works in the theme so I’m glad you decided to share it with us. It must be fun to work as an art model and get to see so many people’s artistic renderings of your figure. I hope you enjoyed the crunch of the leaves beneath your feet. -Trouble

Dear Ninja & Trouble,I have been following your blog for a long while - back when (I think) only Ninja managed the submissions. I adore the positive vibe I get every time I visit NN. It’s uplifting and inspiring. This is my first submission ever. Believe it or not, I have never submitted anything to any other tumblr. What I want to illustrate with this picture is the idea that sex takes me out of the darkness and brings me into the light. In my opinion, sexuality is one of the deepest things in mankind. Nothing brightens and sweetens my life more than a good, intimate, and honest sexual encounter. Hearing my partner saying I’m needed and that I made her feel great makes me feel immortal. The romantic bond between a man and a woman - or just two lovers - is such a powerful experience. I’m proud of the result I got with this self-portrait, but I must confess I was a bit unsure about submitting it. I’m in my head a lot and I think too much… at certain point I was afraid of being misinterpreted and that female readers would find this picture scary instead of poetic. A man coming out of the dark may sound as something menacing. But, If this ever gets published, I’m sure it won’t take long to know what people think of it. And that’s just so exciting that makes me feel like locking myself up in my studio to make more art.Thank you, dear Ninja & Trouble, for spreading the idea that sexuality is beautiful and something to be cherished. Keep up your excellent work and I wish you only the very best.— Cosmo

I enjoy a well done concept in a submission and you did a great job visually expressing your idea in this photo. I can see how your image can be taken in different ways but I think the poetic intention is the most clear. I’m also glad you specified the power and possibility of love between any two partners and how fulfilling it can be. Thanks for sharing your first submission here and being such a long time follower.

Hey all. New to the blog here. Well, I just started taking self shots early this year….well, good ones anyway.  I decided after seeing so many other people do good work with similar self photography that I’d post a bunch online and see what kind of reaction they got. I took this at a large park in the evening right before the sun had started to go down.  There wasn’t really anybody else around, I happened to have my tripod (I usually don’t), and I had just come out of one of those dirty park restrooms that are really just a hole in the ground surrounded by some walls. I started to walk away, realized that I was alone, and thought to myself, “Yeah, I’m dropping the clothes for a few shots.” It was my first outdoor shot of the year, and it only took two tries with a self-timer.  This shot remains my favorite after months of more attempts, both indoors and outdoors.

What a great feeling that must have been. To realize you are totally alone, in solitude, and able to act on your own will. You definitely created a nice image from this moment. I really like the framing of your shot and the hint of forest peaking up over the top of the wood. I hope you enjoyed your time camping. I’ve been craving the woods more and more and look forward to being able to take some great outdoor shots as well this summer. -Trouble

My love has the best ass. I had him pose for some pictures in this wonderful lighting

I like to see ladies encouraging their guys to feel sexy and show off,  so thank you for sharing. I know Trouble has been very helpful in encouraging me to do so and I’m glad these two are doing the same. I definitely hope that inspires other couples to trade who is in front and who is behind the camera.

Happy sunday! This week I turned one of my spare rooms into a studio. This is the first time I’m experimenting with a new camera, tripods, and lighting. Let’s just say I got a bit scandalous ;D
-Videogamesandsex

I definitely encourage ninjas to experiment with different lighting techniques, play with their cameras and use some sort of tripod. It looks like you’re off to a great start with your little set up, I hope you keep practicing with your photography and share with us again some time.

That was my first time cooking nude. It felt refreshing. I’m not sure if it tasted better, though ;). However, this won’t be the last time

There’s a lot of things I’ve imagined myself doing nude but don’t get the chance to as Ninja and I live with other people. One day I’m sure I’ll get to cook nude, though I think you have the right idea with an apron as there’s an element of splash and burn about cooking nude that I’ve always been weary of. -Trouble

Hey Ninja & Trouble,
I went crazy this week with pictures. From submissions, to fansigns, and finally going outside to take pictures outside in a park, I am overflowing with pictures. For some reason when I saw this picture, I wanted to submit it to you. I just loved the feel of it, the sun trying to shine through my blinds, my sheets kind of messy from fooling around, and a light shining down on me from my ceiling fan like I’m the main attraction. 
But 2 things I wanted to add are that 1.I am uncircumcised and was always self conscious about until my first sexual experience. I never really take pictures without the skin pulled back, just my preference. 2. although crossing your arms and taking your shirt off like that may look sexier, it is definitely harder.
Hope you two and all of the ninjas have a great sunday!

The insecurities young men have to deal with regarding foreskin is one that I think society should really be working to repair. It seems like a common concern among young men and I hope one day this isn’t the case, as from a female perspective foreskin or not has never made a difference to me. I find photos where the subject is undressing to always be really visually appealing and I feel like yours captures this moment of transition in a really great way. -Trouble

Happy Sunday. Stayed with a friend last weekend, and she had the strangest shower. It was essentially it’s own little room with a faucet and a skylight. That meant I could keep a camera at a safe distance and that the lighting would be good for actually picking up the water droplets. Turned out pretty well, I think.

That shower sounds really cool. I love showering in places where the natural sunlight can come through. You’ve definitely captured how heavenly of a place it is in your submission. Good eye for lighting. -Trouble

So far this submission is one of my favourites we’ve gotten today. It looks as if it was taken with an analog camera and the way you’ve titled it makes me imagine you finding this mirror while travelling and getting the idea to create this picture. Great colour, framing, and focus. -Trouble
