I DO NOT sell nude or fetish shots.

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 21, 2014, 6:43 AM
Since I get these kind of requests pretty much every day I thought it was time to make a little entry about this.
I consider myself an artist, not a fetishmodel (I know, I wear latex every now and then as well as corsets and high heels but I think they still cover everything and are just shiny, sparkly and pretty.). I like to wear clothes. I never did nudes and am not interested in it at all, even if it seems that some guys want to pay for it to have it in their "private collection".
Seriously. I like to earn my money with shooting pretty dresses and other things but I definitely won't sell any saucy photos to total strangers.

I don't even like to check my notes here any more because nearly all the messages are about commissioned (fetish-)photos, way too many details about the sexlife of people I never talked to before or dating requests. This is really annoying and every week I think I should just deactivate my account...
(Well, but I won't, no worries.  ...at least not yet)

Oh and by the way! I am NOT looking for (money-)slaves, dates or guys who want to skype with me. Not even if you are super rich! I barely have free time and if I have any I don't want to spend it talking to guys who just want to date me because they like my photos and think that "your boobs are so big <3 <3" is a good compliment to start with.
Also I don't want to see any photos of you being all nude and sexy and full of ... stuff. It is really nice that you think you would brighten up my day by sending me these things but personally I think one should at least ask first or have a proper conversation. Wich we definitely won't have if it is about this theme. In fact you might rather end up on my blocking list, especially if you are trying that twice.

Thanks for understanding.

Now back to normal life. Have a nice day everyone :)

Another thing I wanted to point out, because I'm sure some think that because you dress in a certain ways in some of your photoshoots, that you are "asking for" this kind of treatment. I just wanted to say that it doesn't matter if you are butt-naked - you are still a person, and they should treat you like it and show some respect!

I'm sorry you get treated like meat like this. I get the same treatment once people find out what I look like. It makes me afraid to do any modelling (or even go outside sometimes, because I get harassed that badly), even though I'd like to. It's so gross that strange men will send women pictures of their penises without being asked for it. I can't imagine what goes on in their heads; they must be really stupid! Argh, if only we could put them in our shoes for a little while.

Anyway, I hope you'll continue making art and not let them scare you off. Hopefully being clear that this behaviour is very unwanted will deter some of them. Good luck!

Als ich mich damals angemeldet habe, war dA für mich eine ehrfurchtgebietende Plattform, auf der so viele talentierte Menschen sich treffen konnten, um gegenseitig ihre Arbeit auszutauschen und ich hatte wirklich Angst, dass meine Arbeit, egal ob Fotografien, Zeichnungen oder Texte viel zu schlecht sein könnten, um hierher zu passen.
Inzwischen finde ich beim stöbern aber so viele Fotos, die eindeutig nicht auf dA gehören, sondern maximal auf eine Photodumping-Seite ... und ich bin nicht der einzige, der das so sieht.
Gut, wo fängt Kunst an, wo hört sie auf, das ist schwer zu definieren und ich will mich nicht erdreisten, darüber zu urteilen. Aber ich glaube schon, dass man sagen kann, dass dA über die Jahre versumpft ist und deswegen eben auch Klientel hier ist, bei dem man eben nur ungern auf der Watchlist steht.
Und für was sind die dA-Richtlinien da, wenn sie einfach ignoriert werden? Gibt es keine Möglichkeit zumindest in den PNs einen Schimpfwortfilter einzubauen, um gerade solche furchtbar belastenden Nachrichten
herauszufiltern? Sind Premium-Member hier, die sich da auskennen?

Ich für meinen Teil ehre jeden Künstler hier für seine einzigartigen Talente und finde, es ist eine Schande, dass man sich überhaupt rechtfertigen muss, für das, was man hier tut.
Gleichsam ist es aber auch eine Wohltat, zu sehen, dass so viele Künstler hier zusammenhalten und sich gegenseitig Mut zusprechen!

Esmeralda, wir alle lieben und respektieren dich und deine Arbeit! Lass dich nicht unterkriegen!

I apologize for my gender...sadly it's a similar story with many of the models I know.  And as a photographer who shoots some fetish, I regularly have to delete inappropriate comments and block the offenders.  (I recommend you do the same - block and report, don't respond or engage directly.)

It seems the anonymity of the internet allows people to drop all pretense of morals, etiquette, and socially acceptable behavior.  I can only hope you or others in your situation do not allow this small but disproportionately vocal segment of the online community to alter what you wish to do, online or off.  Your work is absolutely gorgeous.

Well, I agree with downunderrob and NervousReality . I'd like to make one observation though. Latex fetishism can involve a model who is literally covered from their neck down in skin-tight rubber so it's possible (maybe not likely, but possible) that some fetishists are just looking for "private collection" shots like la-esmeralda.deviantart.com#/a… but without the boots and metal trim details.

For what it's worth, fetishism can include anything.  Some fetishists may find full-on Victorian attire to be exciting.  You never know.

That's very true. However, I was hoping to make the point that doing private fetish work does not necessarily include doing anything that la-esmeralda has not already published as work that she will do.

I would have to say that you should really just ignore your notes. I'm really not to surprised that people ask such things. They also must not be paying much attention to your stuff that you posts.
