Flaunting photos of oneself naked or always in revealing fitness gear/skimpy bikinis, you reinforce the message a woman’s best asset is her body, her beauty or her sexuality. There is nothing wrong with being healthy, fit and attractive, but surely women need to be encouraged that they are more than just their looks.

To show what they are worth

Everything in our society echoes this message. We elevate and esteem women of outward beauty and focus more on their sexuality above any other attribute. The pursuit of perfection and sexual prowess has become the highest goal and perfection of the veneer, the package, the exterior, nothing deeper.

For social confirmation

Social validation has well and truly become an addiction for our generation. Now, that doesn’t just apply to posting raunchy or sexy photos on your Facebook page. We can seek out many forms of social affirmation. A lady could post cute pics of her kids to gain positive comments. Someone else may post a photo of their new puppy to entice a response. Someone else may boast about their new job, new car or new boyfriend. Underlying the motivation is to receive social acceptance and attention. And let’s be honest on some level we all crave it and if it's kept in check it's healthy and normal. But far too many have fallen into the trap where it becomes the master not the servant.

Adds to the onslaught of sexual images men are exposed to every day

The fact is, skin stimulates. Especially for men but then, of course not exclusively. The structure of the male brain vs. the female brain is very different. As a result, men and women, do not react to, nor view sexuality and intimacy in the same ways. What seems harmless, uninteresting, or meaningless to a woman may be extremely powerful and addictive to a man or vice versa even more so the wild stacy cruz !
