So, this seems to have come up quite a lot recently. If you look around the stretching boards, it's really good for inspiration. Heck, I come here to get motivated to stretch every now and then.

But we've had our share of perverts on this site. Lots of them actually. People commenting only to stretching photos and PMing girls to tell them how beautiful they are. And trying to meet people at competitions and such. It's creepy.

And one of the reasons why these girls get contacted-- check out their pictures. Most of them wear booty shorts. Some of them even have to blur out their crotch because something happens to be visible. This is a perverts DREAM! Young girls and women practically showing off their coochies over the internet.

You girls have to remember that these pictures AREN'T only visible to DDN members, but people AROUND THE WORLD. Basically, anyone with an internet connection can get a hold of these pictures. That's a lot of people. Ever seen on the news when girls get abducted because of an internet stalker.

Remember, that can happen here. While I don't want you to stop posting your pictures, I want you all to think. Is this appropriate to post on the internet. From now on, try to wear longer pants or capris rather than booty shorts.

EDIT from KrisyP: Also, watch out what you wear up top. Don't wear tank tops that can reveal cleavage and such. A lot of streching pictures are taken from a front angle and you lean forward. (ex. straddle split stretch?) You don't want your ta-tas hanging out as well.

Yeah I agree, I love coming to see your photo's but maybe people could wear like Jazz pants maybe and roll them to the knee's so you can stretch just as easy but your more covered. Same goes for the top remember, althogh I don't think theres a problem with that here.

Thanks for highlighting the problem Muffin

Thankyou so much for posting this,
i used to stretch in shorts because it was so hot during the summer and i didnt really realise the danger in posting pictures.
since then ive made sure i only post pictures in trousers and ive got the mods to delete all my posts with me wearing shorts.

YES! Thanks you! Some of us don't want to see THAT much of you either. If you want to show off better lines try wearing a leo and tights or something. Not so much skin!! Protect yourselves out there!

Yaay someone finally posted it (I get frustrated by it easily lol). Karma to you my dear. We don't need to have butts/crotch/boobs hanging out. There are easier ways to get attention (like that awesome box split you've been working on, etc).

Absolutely good point. There are so many perverts in this world that it ain't funny. And Heaven knows how many perverts there are who are willing to use PhotoShop or some other paint program to make nasty modifications to a picture and then upload it somewhere inappropriate?

If you have to wear something like that, then wear something that isn't too tight so those areas won't exactly be extremely visible (for want of a better term to describe it.) Also, you might want to try putting a watermark in your photos so those perverts won't be able to rip off your photos easily. Some people also choose to hide their faces as well, but that's up to you, since I really don't think you should have to censor your photos of you showing off your flexibility, but with all the perverts in this world, you have to be careful.

great post as i guy i feel sometimes well althought they might not be called bootie shorts for me i still don't feel comfortable showing pictures of me stretching in shorts. I always make my girlfriend wear some kind of non revealing pants and a shirt not a tank because yea i don't want her being abducted. just keep doing what your doing with extreme care and protection!

Do be carful, dance is an art, but there are thouse that make it perverted, like most guys do from time to time, I included though, I come here to talk breakdanceing and theolagy, most of the time now.

Always rember to be graceful and not like a ho.

And I just have to say that I have never heard the milk glands referd to as "ta - tas" lol

But do be carful there are some real sick people out there that would have their way with you if they had the chance

Yeah that's a really good post, just because at your normal dancing classes you can be in shorter tops etc. and not really care, it's not just your dancing school here it's the entire world!

Oh Dear,

Here we go again with a posting by LeonardSly who comments "yeah, people like hamfist."

I have always posted helpful messages and have had numerous nice comments back to me.

Regrettably, it takes all types to make up this world and we seem to have an exception to the norm with the author of this posting.

Good Idea :)

Some shots that I have seen are a bit revealing... it's always good to cover up and be on the safeside.
