Naked Show

"When I'm a life model, I go into this zen zone where I think about nothing and everything." - life model Peggy
"I just love my body and I want show it off, because I'm awesome!" - life model Christine
"At first I did it because I didn't love my body and I wanted to maybe gain some confidence... but then it started to grow on me... it's hard to describe it... but I'd be there and I'd think to myself: this is who I am, and it's perfectly ok." - life model Julie

Meet our life model today, Dani - a love hard, die hard woman who only speaks her mind when she thinks nobody can hear her. During the day, she is the walking demonstration of a perfectly successful Asian lady, except for the occasional bum-scratching; but every Tuesday night, she does life modelling... and her parent's can't know, obviously!
