I'm still digging this one, by the way:
*I hate my life and would like it to end immediately after this photo* look
Nah, don't think it's a big deal really, you bunch of fascistic prudes.
and she's enjoying it
IF YOU'RE A PERVERT
IT'S NOT A HARD REPLY SYSTEM MAZ
I'm going to leave replying in this thread you bunch of mardys
I mean a naked family photo is one thing... but if my parents had made me lay on top of my older brother with my genitals nestled in his butt crack and my younger brother on top of me with his genitals in my butt crack... well, I would've fucking divorced them.
I had a pair of bermuda shorts* like these when I ws a young 'un**.
*whatever happened to bermuda shorts?
**as if i haven't still got three pairs of 'em
Ahhh just what I need to cheer me up!
oh god no
(srsly, though, that's mental)
when did stacking up your family become a ''thing''?
I'm deifnitely doing that, looks awesome
The new craze sweeping the nation.
is posting BB Codes for images the new posting in the wrong place or summats? :-)
So I used tinypic????
Tinypic has a button or something that says 'post this on a messageboard' that gives the code with the [img] tags.
Ok, let's have *everyone* watching Dad tongue Mum in this one
The alternative version to explaining where babies come from
either way, laughter.
''I'd like to get a shot of you in the buff, in front of your gym equipment...aaaand let's try you holding your tortoise too.
Your un-pc insult is not acceptable.
I DIDN'T REALISE
just spend ten seconds looking at that photo.
But being naked ON TOP OF EACH OTHER is about as close as you can get to it. And doing it TOGETHER.
Come on, don't "pervert" us.
needs to be able to put their hand on their heart and say '' I would be totally fine and comfortable doing a photo like that with my family.
Otherwise, you're just trying to be uber-liveral and right on for the sake of it.

doesn't mean I would bloody well be comfortable with it though for crying out loud.
You'd be fine doing a photo like that yeah? Seriously man, whatever.
Surprised that a joke about butt sex flew over someone's head, tbh.
For the ledger, I wouldn't be comfortable in any family portrait scenario, but can't imagine I'd find this one much worse than average so long as a) I was one of the young children or b) I was the parent of one of the young children. Not that it matters, really.
Ok. End of conversation.
You're being quite smug and condescending, btw.
I never have. Why on earth would I want to? It's not because I'm scared. But I do just think it's weird. If you don't that's fine, but I do think that I'm kind of in the majority on this one.
I find your devil's advocate, massively balanced opinions disingenuous and condescending, so I'm being condescending in return.
An elite panel of DiSers decided and told me. Wasn't sure if they'd got round to you yet, was just trying to soften the blow.
You just wouldn't want to press your genitals against anyone else, but it definitely isn't a sexual thing. I understand.
No, he won't put his penis against your ars.
I've actually got family photos very similar to that.
Nothing at all happening on Sundays back in the day + crap tv on 4 all channels + DRESSING UP BOX = winning results.
The best part is when the Jehovas Witnesses come to your door and your dad makes absolutely no attempt to unrobe, opens the door, and plays it dead straight.
but... it's a family naked lying on top of each other?
It's not the sort of thing my family would do, but these guys all look perfectly comfortable with it, it's not in the slightest bit sexual and they're all family. I understand why some people might think it's a bit unusual and twee, but I really don't understand the outpourings which imply INCEST!!!!1111
Apparently that's too balanced to seem genuine though.
they've just said how very weird it is for that family to be resting their genitals in each others butt cracks
which, by the way, it 100% is.
But that discomfort is completely related to sex and notions of sexuality.
I understand why people are made uncomfortable by nakedness outside of the contexts they've come to associated nakedness with. I reject the notion that their discomfort does not derive in any way from notions of sex, ie the primary context with which nakedness is associated.
I said ''press my genitals''. For example when asleep spooning... or annoying her by resting it on her shoulder for LOLs (haven't actually done this but might well do this weekend).
I didn't think it was sexual, never said it was sexual. Sure I said I wouldn't want my genitals pressed in my brother's butt crack...but that's in relation to what's happening IN THE PHOTO. If it was a family photo with dicks on each other's shoulders I would have said "If my parents made me have a photo with my dick on my brother's shoulder I'd divorce them."
I wouldn't want a photo with anyone with our genitals touching...I'm a prudish bastard, fine.
You know why people say you're condescending? Because you are. You've decided my opinion for me in this thread which is pure arrogance.
using 'rapey' to denote anything that that you consider sexually weird/uncomfortable: not cool
also: lol, DiS
Good- I've always suspected you're a good sort. Nice, honest, straight-to-the-point username. I like that in a DiSer.
I don't actually think that's how the photo's set up at all. it looks like they're only *just* resting on each other, and that the bodies are staggered back, rather than square on top of each other (which would have given the father some appalling crush injuries, apart from anything else.) I NOW feel grubby, having analysed that, but my gut reaction remains the same- a load of fuss over nothing.
is really a silver lining gesture at most.
i'm just left wondering what your family is like for you to consider this normal behaviour.
"It's not the sort of thing my family would do", so you can stop wondering.
I just find it tiresome when people judge others based only on their own sphere of 'normality' when this seems to come purely from within the confines of their own narrow personal norms.
if everyone reacted to everything like "I wouldn't do that, but it's not my place to judge".
I think it would be pretty dull.
It's nice that the NOTW story has united everyone though :)
and if we were all to be all-embracing about everything, it could quickly get boring. By the same token though, I can't help but be a little amused that a forum which seems to embrace a plurality of lifestyle choices can be so closed off in relation to certain subject matters which itm for whatever reason, deems icky.
If I lived somewhere a little more clement I'm pretty sure I would be a naturist, and so I'm perhaps a little bit skewed on this issue.
it's not like he makes the kids wear chicken outfits or they all dress like nazis because they all have a dark sense of humour.
they're naked. up against each other. it's not about normal, it's about making sure your kids understand intimacy and privacy issues correctly. now, they might grow up with those qualities intact, but i'm pretty sure stacking them on top of each other naked for a family photo is probably counterproductive in that area of child rearing.
it's Big Bird
I felt it would look more tasteful as a Christmass card... I was wrong :-p
Was there a troll post in between each of yours that got deleted to make it such a ridiculous argument?
ANYONE WHO DOESN'T SHARE MY NORMATIVE OPINION IS JUST TRYING TO SMUGLY OUT-LIBERAL EVERYONE ELSE cos nobody could possibly genuinely disagree with me. i love threads where everyone suddenly morphs into a kind of CG-lite
i told mum to put that photo away before visitors came round :'(
