Ashley Graham’s Hidden Vagina

Model Ashley Graham has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated, comfortably showing skin, but she’s not exactly planning on taking things much further. The plus-sized model has definitely posed for some scantly clad pictures. There was even that time she did a photo shoot completely nude. But she’s planning on covering herself up, at least in front of the millions of eyes of her fans.

Graham got into specifics in an interview with Glamour:

“You know, my thing is: If it’s vulgar, and it’s, like, me grabbing my breasts and showing nipple, I’m not going to do it. When I said, ‘I don’t do nip and bush,’ I didn’t feel like I had to be specific as to what kind. So you might even see more nipple coming up. But trust me: You will never see my vagina!”

Even though she claims to care about specifics, there she is promising no nips in one sentence, and then changing her mind a sentence later. Still, she seems pretty sure that her downstairs is not going to become a public spectacle.

All joking aside, it sounds like Graham had a formative experience that made her want to be more careful in the modeling world.

“There was an incident on set of a campaign job when I was 17 years old — I haven’t told this story — and there was a photo assistant who was into me,” she said. “He was like, ‘Hey, come here,’ and he led me into a closet. And I was like, ‘What?’ I thought he was going to show me something.And he pulled me in, and he pulled his penis out. And he was like, ‘Grab it.’ And I was like, ‘No! That’s disgusting.’ I freaked out. And thank God I was closer to the door, and I just bolted out.”

Ashley Graham has described most of her life as a series of naked moments, but it sounds like she’s drawing lines on what does and doesn’t count as nudity. It doesn’t sound like she’s going to stop doing what she’s doing any time soon though. Expect to see her on magazine covers plenty moving forward.
