My Bare Body Does Not Equal Sex

19 Oct My Bare Body Does Not Equal Sex


When we first met Gaby, we were immediately captivated by her fiery energy & passionate drive. She’s of course a beautiful woman on the outside, but her brilliantly artistic mind makes us love her even more.


She has plans to make the world a more beautiful place through fashion, modeling & photography. We appreciate her for that. She uses her beauty to make a statement: the body is a piece of handcrafted artwork that deserves to be celebrated. We agree – everyone may believe they have imperfections, but to us, everyone is perfectly beautiful just as they are.


We’re excited to follow Gaby’s photographic journey because we know it will open our minds & fuel our souls. She has a yet-to-be released project that she will be debuting in the near future & we can’t wait to see what kind of magic this future FIDM alum will bless us with.


Today we spotlight Gaby & her story – we hope you leave inspired!


Prior to moving to LA I had never quite experienced how hard it actually is to be a woman in this society full of misogyny. Something I truly stand behind and feel in my soul is that the nude form is a work of art. My bare body does not equal sex. My bare body is a harbor for my soul to live the human experience. Sexualizing women whether they are nude, wearing revealing clothing, or completely covered up never results in anything positive.


Speaking from experience and on behalf of other amazing women, sexualization creates poor self-image and worth, anxiety, hesitation to fully express oneself in public, and just flat out makes us feel unsafe and extremely uncomfortable! So I’m posting this photo for a third time to celebrate the beauty and purpose of the bare body.

    I’m the first to admit that I have sexualized women so thank you for vocalizing your feelings. It has made me think about my own actions as a man and my responsibility to treat women with nothing but respect.
