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

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

Self Lisbon, July 2012

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

Climbing above Interstate 70 in Colorado. And naked.

Another awesome outdoor nude male submission. I think we’re on a really good streak here (no pun intended). There’s a lot of things about this submission that I love, but I think the pickaxe is what’s really doing it for me. Your submission is making me crave another road trip through the mountains and will definitely give me a different perspective on the scenery around the highways when I do. -Trouble

Hello you two, hope your weekend is going well!This week I’ve done something I’ve been wanting to do for a really long time, just haven’t had the courage to go out and do it — I took pictures outside. I’ve seen a lot of submissions that people have sent in and I’d been wanting to go and take some of my own. That was a tough thing for me to go out and do though. I’ve been paranoid that someone would be out and about, and come across me while I was naked as a jaybird. I was thinking about it when I saw a Nike ad with their “Just Do It” across the photo. I thought to myself, “Fine! Be that way!” Then I drove up the canyon.When I was first up there, I was super jittery. Every little rustle in the trees from the wind or a critter in the grass would make me super paranoid. As the time passed though, I relaxed and it started to become much more fun. It was so pretty outside! I’m glad I could start to become one with nature that day.YakityYakYall

Wow, what a beautiful place to be. You look the most free in this submission than we’ve ever seen from you. What I love most about nude outdoor submissions is that they feel like snippets of another time in another place where people are free to roam the wilderness in their most natural state. I love that you tried something new and put yourself out there in a new way. I hope you get to explore outdoors more and more. -Trouble

Hey Ninja and Trouble. We’ve had some heatwave conditions here in Britain, with some high temperatures, high humidity and some high excitement thunder and lightning storms too. I decided to take a leaf out of your book and take the camera outside and attempt to cool off some what!
Hope you are both well

I really love when we get submissions that look like no other submissions we’ve ever gotten before and this one definitely fits that category. The way you’ve captured the water pouring down your body and splashing off is really beautiful. Seeing the leaves in the background brings back a lot of good memories of showering outdoors as well for me so thanks for that. Keep cool and thanks for your contribution this week.-Trouble

This morning I went to do HIV test, and when I came back,  I had a reward in my mailbox!  
So cool, I love it!

I had such a great idea for today, I was gonna be on my bed with my back and butt towards the camera and holding my toy above my head and a light shining on it as if it was a gift from the sex gods. I tried and tried, but unfortunately it didn’t turn out how I wanted. But this is no second choice, it shows how I like to use it. Close my eyes and start to thrust. Man I need to get laid.

I think this photo is perfect dude, probably even better than your original idea. It shows your comfort and confidence when using your toy. Thanks very much for showing off and representing the growing group of guys that enjoy toys.

Dear Ninja and Trouble,
When I took this photo, I had no idea that the theme for this week was “toys.” The excitement of having new Superman underwear made me feel like a kid again, and the excitement of taking pictures in them made me, well…excited. (As you can see.) No, there aren’t any actual toys in this photo, but there is some toying. Teasing. I love teasing. I love playing the game of walking the between naughty and dirty. I love coaxing out her dirty side with humor and wit and splash of raunchy.
It’s funny, I had a more revealing version of this photo that I was going to submit, but then I saw yet another opportunity to tease. I may post that and a few others in the coming days, but for now: 
Happy Sunday and stay naked,
Sober-Sex

This kind of teasing photo is one of my favourites to get from male submitters. A simple thumb pulling down briefs is super appealing and reminds me of all the times Ninja has teased me by showing off how hard he is beneath his clothes. Have fun with new underwear, I hope you feel like the man of steel every time you wear them. -Trouble

I saw you reposted my earlier submission, so I thought I’d do an updated version with a newer (and bigger) toy. Sorry it’s only a webcam pic, hence the slightly oil-paint effect…

Wow, you certainly have graduated to bigger things. Thanks for showing off your new toy.
