BUCKNACKT'S SORDID TAWDRY BLOG
We should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive & well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate, bier or wein in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WHOO-HOO, WHAT A RIDE!!!!!!"

Powerful photos of topless women with anti-rape slogans written on their bodies 26JAN16
Rory, who is based in Coff's Harbour in New South Wales, Australia, was inspired to start the series of powerful images in 2014 when she and her husband Alex found out she was pregnant with a girl.
Someone actually said to Alex that it was "time to buy a gun" and we were so disappointed that people's initial reactions were that we would need to protect her, purely because of her gender," Rory told Daily Mail Australia.
She felt like the matter-of-fact approach to her child's safety being in jeopardy was difficult.
"I decided I needed to do something; being a photographer, I knew that I could use this medium to accomplish my something and so 'Still Not Asking For It' was born."
Inspired by an image of a woman at a Slut Walk in Toronto with tape covering her nipples and 'Still not asking for it' written on her body, Rory set to work snapping men and women with empowering messages scrawled on their skin.
Rory's Tumblr and Facebook pages features the images, and Rory herself even appeared in one shot when she was pregnant, holding a sign that says 'I don't want my child to be born into a society that accepts sexual violence."
Rory has set up a Go Fund Me page to raise money for more photoshoots around Australia, including travel and exhibition costs.
