Guys, an old friend of mine has decided to put together a submission-based nude magazine and since I just so happen to be in control of one of the world’s most popular sex blogs, it only made sense from him to swallow his pride and start talking to me again after an incident many years ago that we don’t need to get into.
I’m a sucker for an old friend, so of course I would share his new nude magazine endeavour. But before you send him your nudes, I sat him down for a little chat about his new nude magazine, “NU”. So please enjoy this exclusive interview with the co-founder of NU the new nude magazine you’re all going to submit to.
CHICO: Why should people send you their nude pictures?
NU MAGAZINE: Because our bodies are beautiful and we should archive them right now… and fuck it why not?
C: What if someone’s body isn’t beautiful? Should they still send you nude pictures?
NU: Yes… you can just text those to me. But I think they should – it’s fun, it’s going to be in print, someone’s going to like it.
C: What have the submissions been like so far?
NU: There is a very eclectic mix in the inbox right now… I realize that not everyones photo’s are going to be erotic with a beautiful body on a white sheet in the morning light. I lean towards the rawer – in the moment, catch you blinking photos. I appreciate the morning light photo’s too. I like that people have submitted a wide range of things… we have some funny stories, some sad stories… iPad selfies.
C: Which reminds me, NU isn’t just nude photos, you’ve asked for people to submit nonfiction as well. What inspired marrying nonfiction stories with nude photos? It makes when you think about it because they both involve people putting themselves out there for a print magazine but it’s not something I would expect.
NU: I think that with a photo book, after a while you are just flipping the page for the sake of flipping the page. Graphically the text and illustrations are going to help break up the photos… You’ll be able to focus on different things throughout the publication. I used to read my moms old Reader’s Digests* and every once in a while there would be a sexy story that I would be really into. I think your imagination can create a much better erotica than what you can see…
*These might have just been straight up sex novels and not Readers Digests
C: How do people submit?
NU: You can send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our Tumblr: nu-magazine.tumblr.com.
Deadline is July 1st and everyone over 18 is welcome to submit.
C: Are we going to do some nudes together?
*The call gets disconnected*
C: Hello? Hello? Are we going to do some nudes together?
