Posted October 04, 2018 06:30:17 In the past few years, a number of nude fitness models have come forward claiming they were paid to pose for advertisements or featured in ads.
Many of these women claimed that they were pressured to wear provocative clothing and were offered cash for posing for advertisements.
It’s a story that has caused controversy on social media and sparked an international debate about nude fitness, with the hashtag #nudefallfit trending across the world.
The women say they were forced to perform in nude poses or pose in compromising positions to get money.
But their claims have not been verified by independent experts.
“There’s a lot of things going on in our world, especially the advertising industry, and there’s a huge amount of money that goes into these brands and the media,” said one of the women, who wished to remain anonymous.
I got paid to do what I wanted to do, I got paid for the attention, and I get paid for doing it for the money, said the model.
My mum didn’t believe me, I felt like I was a fraud, she told news.com:au.
In a bid to raise awareness of the issue, a group of female fitness models are calling for a boycott of the fitness industry and have launched the #Nudefendfit movement on Twitter.
Nude Fitness Model Statement: I am not a sex worker, I am an actor, I was paid to be naked.
This is what it feels like when a woman has her body violated by an industry, I do not want to be part of this culture.

Some women claim they were also paid to perform on television shows such as reality shows, where they were asked to pose in provocative poses.
One model from Australia claimed she was paid $30,000 to pose nude for a show called The Real World.
She told newscom.com “My modelling agent told me I could only do one show a week, and they would be paid by advertising agencies.”
Another model, who claims she was made to pose naked for the ABC TV show, said she was asked to do the same for two episodes of the show.
Ms Murali said she would not have been able to afford to do one of her shows without working for the modelling agency.
Another woman claimed she had been paid $200,000 for a series of nude scenes on TV shows.
Her claim has not been substantiated by independent sources.
This is why we need to demand an end to the exploitation of women and children in the fashion industry, says #NudgeForNude model #nudefit.
— Nadia Ali (@nadiaalijad) October 03, 2018 Ms Ali told news-com.uk: “I was made in a position to perform, but when I told the agency that I wanted an apology, I wasn’t given an apology.
They then threatened me with legal action and I had to withdraw.”
She said she has been approached by multiple agencies to pose, but refused to do so.
Ms Ali said she did not want any of her modelling clients to feel like she was being exploited.
If they are looking for an opportunity to get rich, they should go after the big companies that exploit them, she said.
There is nothing wrong with me, but they should stop taking advantage of me.
It’s just that this is what I do.
