The sexiest flesh-baring Instagram accounts you need to follow


TextJules and Gebs

Like naked bodies? Instagram curators @ravvebeauty have got your back with a few of their favourite accounts

The brainchild of best friends Jules and Gebs, @RavveBeauty is the Instagram account dedicated to showcasing and celebrating all that is disturbing, disarming and alluring when it comes to underground beauty. Doubled up contact lenses, iridescent face shimmer, obscure facial piercings, heads shaved to look like flowers in full bloom, unibrows, no brows, wiggly brows. Lending us their well-honed eye, here they pick their top beauty Instagrams of the month.

When it comes to showing off the human body, Instagram doesn’t make it easy. Post something too risque and pics get deleted without notice or explanation, likes get lost, engagement drops. In fact Instagram is a paradox: on the one hand inviting us to translate as much as possible of our physical lives in the digital world; on the other hand, censoring our most physical and intimate representations in a way that often feels exaggerated or arbitrary (female nipples must go but shirtless guys do make some great insta-eye candy?)

All of this makes it hard to bare it all but easy to recognize those glorious accounts that know how to flirt with the line between the erotic and the explicit. Here is where to get all the thrills without the slaps:

Carlota Guerrero

It’s like Carlota’s mission on earth is to make women fall in love with the female body. The Barcelona-based photographer and art director’s work is instantly recognisable: dreamlike visions reconcile incredibly aspirational beauty with real, raw and diverse femininity.



 

Jad Ghorayeb

You can tell Beirut-based Jad Ghorayeb is an architect because of how she photographs the female body. All her images carry an inimitable structural quality. It’s crazy what the body can do.

Glamda

Glamda is the LGBT Roman rave that takes homoerotica to a fresh, fun, indie place. I guess it’s true, Italians do it better after all.

Sevdaliza

Alt-pop goddess Sevdaliza’s statuesque figures are at the heart of her mesmerizing visuals and live performances. Soon they also become the canvas of our dreams.

Marius Sperlich

Marius Sperlich is the mad inventive visual artist that reminds us that the body doesn’t always have to be a serious matter! It’s a playground for the mind and all the senses. Let’s have fun with it!

Camila Falquez

Recently tapped by the American Ballet Theatre to shoot their season’s programme, photographer Camile Falquez has a unique ability to capture the beauty of moving bodies in the stillness of a picture.

Esmay Wagemans

The science-fiction artist depicts a world where women are half-human, half-robot. And always the subject of their own esthetic experimentations. A fascinating visual take on “my body, my choice”.
