It’s hard to navigate the internet without accidentally seeing women without clothes free of charge. Sometimes this is awesome. Other times it can create problems.
But the naked woman bubble is still out there, ripe for big, big bucks — if it’s for a noble cause.
As a photographer working for ad campaigns and men’s magazines like GQ, Esquire and Maxim, Victoria Janashvili didn’t like some of the messages she was helping to promote.
“There were slogans put on [my] images that the models and I didn’t agree with. For instance, ‘Bigger is better,’ or ‘Skinny isn’t healthy,’” Janashvili tells The Post. “I don’t think that skinny is better, I don’t think that plus size is better. I think you decide that you’re beautiful.”
So, the 26-year-old New Yorker decided to do something about it.
Donations began pouring in and she quickly reached her $37,500 goal and the book featuring “all types of booties” became a reality.

Among the photographer’s favorites is plus-size stunner Chelsea Miller, sister of supermodel Alyssa Miller, who elected to have her body decorated in self-empowering phrases like “Start a revolution” and “I am enough.” She’s a few pages ahead of Donna Feldman, a slender lingerie model who Janashvili says is innately shy — the opposite of what most people see.
“To me, it was as important to show ‘perfect’ girls like this, as well as girls like Josette and Diandra, because everybody’s journey is so different,” she explains. “What I’m trying to say is that they’re equally interesting — whether they’re big or small or [traditionally beautiful] or not.”
Enjoy. Or not. Or start your own Kickstart. Whatever you want.
