I just went for it and posted a picture of DAT ASS on Instagram. I compared it to a photo that was taken by a photographer for a job. Ninety-nine percent of the comments liked the one I took myself. Some comments were, “the one you took makes you look more comfortable and not trying to have the perfect pose,” “good selfie is always better than a glammed-up studio shoot,” “I love the selfie, you are perfect.” According to a couple guys, I have no ass. On a sliding scale of flat to J-Lo, I definitely have zero ass. But for a skinny model, I think I’m doing alright. One guy asked “u single?” Another said “ASS,” and then some guy wrote a paragraph about how I should change careers. So what I’ve learned from posting a picture of my ass on the Internet is that most guys think at-home-casual-selfies are WAY sexier than professional shoots with makeup and model poses. (x)

"Photo shoots are crude transactions when you’re a model. After I sign my name, I lose my identity, because clients do everything they can to transform you into their vision. I’m no longer Melissa, I’m ‘Hot Girl #2’, a mere object beneath layers of make-up and hair extensions. I barely look like the person I really am. People have said so many times: ‘Wow, that doesn’t even look like you’ when they see my modelling photos. Well, it’s not. It’s hard to recognise myself in the photos sometimes. I have way more lines on my face, and more weird bones in my nose, than the Photoshopped version of me lets on."

I posted the sexiest photo of myself I could find. Don’t let that picture fool you, sticking my ass in the air like that is incredibly uncomfortable. I may have done that pose in yoga; I’ll let you know tomorrow. The comments were great, but they made me uncomfortable. Someone even asked my ex if he was mad. He responded with, “Why? I fucked her. You never will!” Good one, ex-boyfriend. Lots of other people said the photo was gorgeous and sexy. Of course it is! I’m in my underwear just waiting for a guy to text me, “u up?” Someone also said he was happy I finally got some meat on my bones. Hey guy, you realize when that transfers into a woman’s brain all she sees is “YOU’RE FAT.” Lots of guys found this picture sexy, so I’m gonna go ahead and say posing seductively is officially sexy.

Yesterday, I posted a photo on Instagram and Twitter of what I perceive to be the least sexiest characteristics of women according to men — cats, self-help books, sweatpants, zit cream, watching Eat, Pray, Love on my laptop, and I’m actually wearing my retainer but you can’t see it (I seriously still have to wear that thing or my teeth will go back to looking like Amy Winehouse’s). It got 191 likes, which is definitely above average for me. Not one person said it wasn’t sexy. Some dudes even commented “ABSOLUTELY SEXY” and “DEFINITELY SEXY.” (x)

I’ve spent the past few days avoiding sunlight. I had acid put on my face to get rid of never-ending acne scars, and my dermatologist gave me strict instructions to stay indoors. 

[…]

The reason I put myself through this torture is because I’m a model working in a world obsessed with eternal youth. My face is my employee, and the industry we work in doesn’t reward time and experience. In fact, it does just the opposite. I use a bunch of different medications to keep my skin looking decent, because I was cursed with acne as a kid, and it never seemed to go away. Facials and lasers are expensive, and sometimes painful, but they are part of my job. I have grown accustomed to this, but lately, I’ve started wondering how long I want to be waking up every day fearing what I’ll see in the mirror. I need to figure out my post-model life before I start injecting comedy amounts of chemicals into my face to look younger.
