In a fair and truly gender-equitable world, there would be an equal assortment of nude shots featuring both genders, and we wouldn't be conditioned to perceive of them as anything other than damn fine.
Since I have not heard a compelling argument about why I should be grossed out by a naked woman with a big ass in a magazine, I am left to speculate about why many women find this so unsettling.
Of all the types of porn there are -- amateur, B&D, S&M, A&E, three-way, girl-on-girl, three girls, one guy, his mother, and her sister, that crazy shit they do in Germany -- my least favorite is something called "revenge porn."
I firmly believe that if we started owning up to taking nude photos of ourselves, there would be a lot less stigma surrounding having and sharing them... and if we stopped thinking of nudity and sex as our enemies, we'd have a healthier, happier society.
The silver lining here is that with risqué photos and nude selfies popping up pretty much everywhere in our culture (Anthony Weiner ring any bells?), nefarious government or Mafioso types will find it increasingly hard to blackmail anyone anymore.

We administer a thousand mental and verbal paper cuts to our bodies every day. Most of the time, we're not even wholly conscious of what we're saying.
I just don't know how you'd be able to take this class and look anyone in the eye afterward. Or, how you'd handle that gut-wrenching moment when you have to walk into a crowded room of people completely naked.
I do not love my body. I cruelly blame it for my recurring unhappiness. I have made it the culprit for my failures in love. I spent years starving it and then stuffing it and talking horribly to it. I have not been kind to this flesh, and changing my destructive attitude is the work of a lifetime.
