Screw Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus. We asked real TONY readers to get naked-and then had them art-direct their photo shoots. Here's what they thought would turn you on.

“I wanted to be doing routine things in my picture, like putting on makeup or sitting naked on the toilet. I saw an aerial shot of that in Sex and Lucia once, and it looked cool. I just graduated from Rutgers, and I’m completely bored with life. I’m trying to find my kicks doing random, impulsive things. So it was either this or get a huge tiger tattoo from my armpit to my hip. I figure taking naked pictures would be cheaper and I’d regret it less.”
“I still live at home. My mom and I used to walk around naked all the time—it was no big deal. Me and my father had a wonderful relationship until I hit puberty; now he doesn’t know how to interact with me. If my parents saw this, I’d be kinda dead.”
