Naked Lady Monday Redux

You commented. I read. And here you go. The return of Naked Lady Monday. But, and there is always a but, I probably won’t make it a weekly event. Why? Simple. If I researched (tasteful) shots of beautiful naked women all the time, I’d probably never write another word. It would just be me. And the pictures. And the drooling. But if you like NLM and want it to continue as an occasional feature, please let me know in the comments and I will soldier on. The things I do for blog.

EDIT: Damn, two typos in one post. I told you naked ladies were bad for my writing!
EDIT 2: The woman gazing at Charlize is her “Monster” director Patty Jenkins. The beautiful shot is by the late Richard Avedon.
EDIT 3: So, NLM stays. As does the name, Google be damned. Actually, when I searched “naked lady” (research is a bitch, I tell ya) I got mostly a refreshingly porn-free selection of links. Apparently, it’s just old fashioned enough to keep the hard-core horn dogs at bay. At least for now.

i do like the naked woman monday idea, but agree, if it's going to compromise on your writing, then your faithful readers can hang off being so demanding!

Your blog is on my daily fix, as well as one that i've sent to others. Keep it up!

NLM seems like a fine tradition to start. I'll even make typos in my comments if that will make you feel that its more accepted, or something.

Looking back a week or so, check out the following article about MLP and the snake: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070813/ap_en_tv/people_mary_louise_parker

Hi Dorothy!

As someone else said, your blog (and AfterEllen) are my daily fix and, although I don't disagree with the idea, I think having the words "naked" and "lady" would perform badly on Google Search and possibly attract the "wrong audience" (horny guys, spammers, "I-wanna-join-you-and-your-girlfriend" jerks, etc. Any other alternative titles than you can think of?

My humble two cents,
Blue

PD: Keep up the good work!

Ooooh, I say NLM is a keeper, for sure. But can you say who's in the shot with Theron? Looks kinda like Maura Tierney, though I suppose that would be just too good to be true, no?

I'm intrigued. Where did that pic come from? Interesting juztaposition: Charlize and a fully clothes woman.

I vote for naked lady Monday. Also, why does it matter who checks out the blog? It’ll be a message to “them.” It’s a challenge for the poorly evolved to objectify women when they have an example of a woman as witty and intelligent as Dorothy.

You can also look up "nudes" in google and see what happens. YAY NLM!!
