Dear Ninja and Trouble, 
This will be our first submission to you. R and I have loved the photos on your blog for quite a while now and finally struck up the nerve to submit a little something. I can admit that your blog has taught me to love my body and to never be ashamed of my sexuality. These lessons have made my sex life with R that much more fulfilling especially when I speak up about what it is I want. This week, I decided to submit to the blog and here we are. 
Our first photo was inspired by this couple’s submission maybe a week or two back. We felt kind of nostalgic simply upon seeing their skin tones and when we read their write up, we knew exactly how they felt. We also know the feeling of being in a long distance relationship but with the addition of rigorous college courses we rarely have the time to communicate when we aren’t together.This weekend though, we found some time to be together, enjoy each other’s body and snap a few pictures. However, we realized how difficult it was to take photos when you’re so caught in the moment, thus our second photo. As you can see, R had to take the reigns because I was too busy trying not to wake the neighbors.
Either way, thank you both and all of your other submitters for being such an inspiration to us,
Nik&R

This is special, I’m always so happy to read about the process of inspiration that happens from submissions. I’m sure that couple will be thrilled to read they were able to connect with you two and every one is lucky to get to see the results. Seeing the NN shirt and bracelet only really makes this submission a total package. Thank you so much for sharing your honest and intimacy with us.

Blue
The last article of clothing slowly slipping off my body
Blue
My veins bursting with pleasure from a wishful touch
Blue
The sea of blankets I drown myself in with liberation and frustration
Blue
My cold breath’s color in the absence of yours
Blue
The feeling I’m left with
without you.

We don’t get poems too often so two in one week is rare. I’m sure many ninjas will be happy to see and read these. Thanks for sharing.

Dear Ninja and Trouble,
There’s a girl at my university who looks very familiar to me, I’m almost sure I’ve seen her somewhere on here, or at least I think I have, I’m very tempted to ask her if she submits to your blog or has a secret internet identity but I have no idea how to approach her about it. Can you help me out please?
Also, here’s the first picture of my butt on the internet :) - mr-extraordinarypositivity.tumblr.com

I can only help you so much and by posting your submission hopefully this lady will find some similarities to a boy she sees at school and you’ll both be wondering who is who. You might have to show off your butt in school for her to really find you though. I’d also suggest getting an NN bracelet or stickers and see how she reacts when she sees it. Good luck, I hope you make a new friend.

Wandering through the spiritual vast majestic wonder of Joshua Tree can’t be complete without getting naked among those gorgeous old stones. 

This looks more like a movie poster than a submission, very great job. Thanks for sharing skills and a part of your adventure with us.

I’ve felt like this for awhile now

It’s good to have habits that help us pass the time, sometimes all we need is a bath, or a smoke or some stretches. Looks like you’re enjoying two at the time time. That can make for an even better experience and thanks for the submission.

Happy Sunday Ninja…
The next submission I’d planned was actually supposed to have been yoga-related, but I haven’t had the chance to shoot it yet.  Figured I might as well shoot something on the fly for submission…
I can’t say enough about the change that yoga has brought to my life.  I had never been truly in touch with my body before I started practicing, and I feel so much more comfortable in my skin now.  It’s brought grace and agility to all of my movement, and everything that is said about how it improves your strength and balance is true.    I’ve been working on my scorpion pose for a while now, and it’s always improving.   Perhaps one of these days my toes will touch my head.

I say all the time about how submissions are about creativity and effort and I think this guy put more than enough into his submission. You’ve pulled off a very difficult pose and with nice form, and the candle light is adorable. Thanks for sharing your yoga today.

I think I’m going through another black and white kick. They always seem to make the focus better on the subject, while your mind fills in the gaps and adds color if it wants to. Nothing really super profound to say unfortunately. It’s just been a chill day! YakityYakYall

Black and white is a very easy way to make a simple photo seem more artistic, but it’s an old trick that still works. I think it’s great to see how hairy your arms and legs are, the black and white makes the hair even more defined I think. So thanks for showing off and sharing.

Loved this theme! I started practicing yoga about 6 months ago and it is one of my new passions so I felt compelled to submit a photo. Thanks for having such a great blog! 

You’re welcome, thanks for contributing to it. Without ninjas like you sharing their beautiful photos NN would not be what it is. Amazing to see you pull this pose off after only 6 months, great work you should be proud.

Hello ninjas,
I honestly tried to be more creative with this week’s SS, but I’m a tall guy in a small apartment, and this was the only way for my body to fit in both the space and the viewfinder. I do, however, think it’s interesting how my left leg seems to dissapear. ‘Pigeon pose’ is one of my favorites - it feels wonderful for you hips and outer thighs, and is great if you spend a lot of time in a chair working at a desk.

You did a great job considering your restrictions, I don’t think anyone would have thought you were limited by seeing this submission. Your posture is poised and perfect, it’s beautiful to see the definition in your arms, chest and neck. Pigeon pose is one of my favorites as well, especially in hot yoga I find it causes the sweat to pour out of my body. Thanks for the submission.

Happy Sunday Ninja & Trouble!  Sometimes with everything going on in our lives, My Sweet Love and I need to be reminded to relax a little and remember what’s important, which makes your theme suggestion that much more welcome today.  Being with her makes me incredibly happy, but sometimes even I need a reminder of how lucky I truly am.  Thank you for making me relax today, because once I do that I think of her, and then the contented smile on my face makes it totally apparent that my life is perfect only because of the love I share. <3
Thank you, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, InLove

It looks like today’s theme has helped out a lot of people, and seeing everyone stretch and pose is making me want to do it too. It’s great to know you’ve found a partner that means so much to you, and it’s good you’re still having time to focus on your body and see the importance of yourself. Thanks for the beautiful photograph.

I was exasperated.
I hadn’t been okay in a long time.
I hadn’t walked in the forest in a long time. 

Great photo, really beautiful posture and perfectly composed. All the colors, details and texture look very natural and realistic. Thanks for the submission.

Dearest Ninja, Trouble and readers,
The last time I tried anything yoga related was a few years back when they offered the course at my health club. Ever since I stopped my flexibility has taken a toll and stress got the better of me.
It was exciting to find out that this week’s theme is yoga, it certainly was fun (and challenging) to try meditation again…in the nude ;)
I hope you guys have a fantastic week! x -mr-extraordinarypositivity.tumblr.com

It looks like you&#8217;ve got a great place to relax, and yoga and meditation are definitely a great way for your body and mind to do so. Hopefully you can keep up your practice and lessen your stress and improve your flexibility.

I took this photo that morning not realizing i was going to use it as our submission, but i couldn’t help myself from asking him after seeing how perfect his back looked covered in marks from my nails and fingers and the shadows from the sun coming through my window dancing on his spine. i was going to wait until next week but i felt compelled to share.
take care!kitten ♥

Really a beautiful and intimate portrait, I&#8217;m glad you decided to share.

I’ve been taking self-portraits for at least ten years now and have never really done anything with them. The past few months I’ve been editing all of the digital images down to something manageable. After all that work it was still hard to finally start posting them and put myself out there. So I started a new site and blog just for those images that will be posted as close to the order in which they were shot, starting from 2004. Here’s a shot from 2012 in Big Sur.

Very cool, both because the photo is awesome and because I went to Big Sur last summer so I&#8217;m familiar with how beautiful the landscape you were inspired by. I really like the scratches on the ground of this photo. I&#8217;m glad you have started a new blog to show off your self portraits. I hope you&#8217;ll share more of them on Submission Sunday as well.

With Spring coming in, it was time for a major cleaning of my apartment. That also means that I had to throw away socks with holes in them. That’s a big deal right there! I usually hang on to those things until they’re basically shredded. They’re just not something I ever think about buying. Super random subject I know, but hey, it happens!YakityYakYall

I like how evident the theme of spring is in most of the submissions today, and spring cleaning is a very important part of embracing the new season and starting fresh. I hope this inspires other ninjas to do the same thing. Great job with the photo as well, you did a great job capturing the detail and definition in your leg muscles and the veins in your hand.
