Naked pregnant women?

I get it giving birth is joy and a total blessing. But does it really need to be celebrated by posing your naked pregnant body on the cover of a tabloid?

It’s not sexy either. I’ve never once heard a pregnant woman refered to as “sexy”. Supermodel Claudia Schiffer, posed naked on the cover of Vogue for the ageing fashion model edition. Her sex appeal was compared to that of Demi Moore’s nude pregnancy photos from back in 1991.

Wow we get it you’ve only put on 15 pounds during your pregnancy.

Can depression, anxiety and substance use be the reasons why we like to indoor tan so much?

In the article, Indoor Tanning Addiction Observed in College Students, explains that depression, anxiety and substance use are factors in why college students like to fake and bake so much.

I like to indoor tan when summer is on the approach and personally I think I look dreadful in a bathing suit when I’m my natural skin tone, which is pale.

However, I do like to drink. I wouldn’t say I’m depressed or anxious but I think we all say that until someone tells us otherwise.

Two tests were run on 421 college students and 229 said they indoor tanned.

“Students who met both sets of criteria were significantly more likely than those who met neither set to report greater symptoms of anxiety and greater use of alcohol, marijuana, and other substances.”
