Flesh direct

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.

“In some circles, my body would be considered unattractive or too skinny because I lack a gigantic rump. But I’m in love with my small behind. I know that curves, femininity and sexiness don’t just come from ass and titties.”

“When I told my older sister I was going to be naked in Time Out, she just laughed and said, ‘But you have no breasts!’ She just got implants and went from a size A to a DD. It doesn’t bother me. My mom will probably frame the picture and show all her friends. I haven’t told my grandmother yet, but she’s a subscriber so she’ll find out.”
