Frequently asked questions
Why are you naked?
Being naked brings me joy.
I really squished most of my artist parts down until I was almost 27. I finished (what I vowed would be) my last-ever producing job, shaved my head, and bought a one-way ticket to South America, hoping to figure out what it would look like to overhaul my life into one I actually enjoyed living.
It was on this literal and figurative journey that I started doing nude self-portraits – I actually can’t find any nude selfies of me pre-27. For two years, they were just for me; a project of self-love.
I have since discovered: people care about hair a lot, a lot a lot, and will talk to me about my hair at great length no matter how short of long it is. In 2018, my good friend Kira declared that 80-year-old her was going to think 30-year-old-her is bangin’ just as I was approaching my 29th birthday, and I realized: I LOVE MY NUDES. It was time to share them.
Do you imagine the entire world as a backdrop for nude shoots?
If only there weren't people around who would be offended? Yes oh yes, yes, yes.
Are you an exhibitionist?
Nope. I'm too consent-oriented, and the thought of accidetnally forcing anyone to witness anything they didn't choose is the opposite of a turn-on for me.
Are you a nudist/naturist?
Opportunistically, sure, culturally, I don't know enough about either movement to say. I don't go out of my way to find nude-only spaces, but I do hope to visit more of them someday, it's just not my top priority (like, I'd rather make a movie than vacation on a nude beach somewhere, though if I could combine the two, that would be ideal).
I just like being naked when it's comfy & allowed, and I think taking naked photos in places people don't normally find naked people is funny.
You're publicly nude...so are you a sex worker?
No, nudity ≠ sex work by default, though the fact that so many complete strangers operate with this mistaken assumption is, I would argue, all the more reason we need to understand nudity outside of sexual contexts.
Just to be very very clear:
I don't do porn.
I don't cam.
You cannot pay me to touch you in any way, shape or form.
I DO, however, offer creative (sexual) consults, erotic fantasy writing, and nude or erotic photo shoots. Scroll up for details.
If you've accidentally attempted to treat me like a free sex worker already, feel free to apologize via venmo/cashapp: @wyohlee / $wyohlee
And duh, sex work should totall be legal, and one of my life goals is to replace "sex worker" with "sexual artist" a la Robert. A Heinlein.
Why do you wiggle every day?
The short answer:
The long answer:
February 12th, 2019
I am exhausted.
I'd just finished a freelance video project, it was the busiest month for headshots, I'm six weeks into recording/editing/doing nude shoots for weekly episodes of Sex Stories on top of The Radiance Project, the other pod I produce and edit weekly. And I was finally getting auditions for pilot season.
But, uncharacteristically for me, I am feeling like I actually want to move my body. She is stagnant. She needs it.
My friend Lola had been telling me about her daily bare minimum of physical exercise: wall sits, while she brushes her teeth. I am tired, it's late late late at night, I am brushing my teeth and decide that tonight is the night: I WILL DO A WALL SIT.
I made it less than 5 seconds. My body was like, nope. So while I brushed my teeth, staring at the rings under my eyes, feeling lumpy, I decided I would do my own bare minimum, and just move a little bit.
I began to wiggle.
It made me laugh so much. So so much. Wiggling led to giggling, and I was slap-happy. Wiggle-happy. The way my wiggly parts moved was utterly delightful. Embarrassing, maybe, because...my stomach and arms and thighs...should they be flapping around that much? But in that moment, even as I was trying to judge myself and use this as evidence that I *must* really get serious about working out, I could help but love my wiggly parts. They make me smile. They made me want to move more!
Why hadn't I wiggled sooner?
And then I got sad; these are not the parts of my body that I'm "supposed" to love or show off, at least based on the messaging from most beauty / health / wellness /lifestyle brands; there's (WOO HOOO!!!) starting to be some exceptions, but I noticed that even in my own brain, with my own very-real wiggly joy present, I felt shy about sharing my wigglejoy in public. But then I thought,
What if wiggling took over the world...?
And just like that, my body-positive sci-fi horror musical comedy (think Little Shop of Horrors meets Rocky Horror Picture Show) about an alien who crash-lands on Earth, accidentally releasing a seemingly unstoppable wiggle virus, was born.
My work on the wiggle movie is currently on pause (again); by necessity, writing indie features has to be lower down on my list of artist priorities than the arts that help me feed myself, and the fact that this one kiiiiind of hinges upon a worldwide pandemic (spoiler alert: it's not a virus, it's alien technology that, yes, humans WILL harness) has led me to backburner it once again.
But I am a big believer in The 15-Second Principle, and also a big believer in doing things that make me feel shy and embarrassed in an effort to make friends with my scareds.
So now I wiggle every day, on instagram, live.
I started on my 30th birthday; after a year of wiggling solo every day, I'm inviting wigglefriends to join me. Sign up ahead of time, or if I don't have a guest for the day, whoever requests to be in my video first while I'm live shall be The One.
#wigglepower is a literal body-positive movement.
It's a literal body-positive movement that I find incredibly delightful and silly, especially in contrast to my sexier nudes
It's a personal challenge for me to practice showing up publicly every day (live-streaming is actually *not* remotely comfy for me)
It's my every day committment to my wiggle movie, which is 4 projects deep on my backburner, but will arrive in time
Even on days that feel terrible, when I am exhausted, I can't help but smile
Where do I find the FAQs from your photography site?!
I'm still in the process of transferring everything over to a single place, but got so many requests for bookings in September I decided to launch my bookings here a little early.
