Been there, done that.
The hardest part was not slipping into my routine of making jokes (thus distracting the people trying to make art).
I learned that being naked kind of puts extra pressure on the jokes.
It was that day I learned what artists/singers/etc mean with those dreams about being on stage naked.
Wrong, and I have a funny story to illustrate (haha) my point. While taking fine arts at college we did nude sketches in my drawing class. The person doing the modelling was an elderly man, I would say early to mid 60's. Every class we would arrange chairs in a circle in the room with a naked man in the middle. He would do a variety of poses holding them from 30 seconds up to two minutes rotating as he did so so that everyone could get a different perspective. At one point he turned and faced me and then touched his toes. I looked across the room at the guy getting the full view of this elderly man's butt hole. He flinched, took a breathe and then proceeded to draw. Later on the bus I noticed the model standing a few feet away from me, it was an awkward ride home. So no, they don't always take physically fit people (though that may be preferable) they take people who are willing to pose naked in front of a bunch of people for a few hours making various and often embarrassing poses.
I also study fine arts and have a keen interest in anatomy but I don't think I could be a model...I don't have the confidence. Not that it makes a difference, but I really feel for the models. The amount of sheer boredom that they have to endure can't be easy. I find it difficult having to stand and sketch them for 3hours.

Anyone else read this and immediately want to go to a nudist comedy club? I want to test this theory of jokes and nudity. Is it easier to or harder (errr... tougher) to get laughs when naked? I need to know.
yeah, i think i would.
i took a art class that had a nude model. i made sure to sit on the side of him so i didn't have to see his dick. they aren't attractive, the guy was chubby.
i also had a friend do modeling just wasn't naked. the art professor said that he had great legs. they drew his legs.
Sure. I have pretty much no modesty. I'm comfortable in my skin, even though I know I'm not the hottest dude. I don't wear a speedo to the beach, not because it would be embarrassing to me, but because I know other people don't want to see that. But hey, if they are specifically there to see and draw me naked, why the hell not?
I've also done some life drawing. I used to go on a weekly basis. I can confirm that almost no nude models for those classes are attractive. People doing life/figure drawing are primarily there to get better at drawing, not to perv out on naked people.
