Jenifer Pope reveals why she tops up her pension by baring all at 71 years of age.
Retired council clerk Jeni is having fun growing old disgracefully stripping off as ‘Geraldine’ while other grannies are baking buns.
Her modelling career began three years ago when Jeni was 67. Single Jeni replied to an advert looking for ‘elegant ladies in their 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s’. The advert also mentioned nudity would be involved.
Jeni was short of money at the time and gave them a call. She was told she would be paid £200 to pose for pictures that would be posted on an adult website for men with a passion for older ladies.
Jeni says: "I was very nervous … I’ve got quite long legs so I tried to show them off. The photographer asked me to take my clothes off slowly as if I was getting ready for bed. We were chatting about all sorts and before I knew it I was naked.”
She adds that it is much easier being naked in front of strangers than in front of people she knows. And she says that her second shoot was much easier than the first, although she was embarrassed looking at the photographs afterwards.
Jeni has kept her double life as a glamour model a secret from her family including two grown-up daughters.
We really need your help, and time is running out.
As part of the upcoming new series of How to Look Good Naked, Gok has charged the winner of Miss Naked Beauty 2008 – Shona Collins – with running a petition to parliament calling for a body confidence lesson to be included in all school curriculums.
The team is hoping people will sign up in their thousands to help teens grow up with a healthier body image.
‘When I first started filming How to Look Good Naked I had no idea of the body hatred epidemic,’ says Gok.
‘After five years filming the show I feel confident that a difference can be made. We need to teach the next generation that what we see in the media is not a fair representation of the real body.’
Shona has spent the last few months investigating young girls’ body image issues and has been speaking to parents, teachers and teenagers.
‘It was shocking to me how depressed and down young girls are about their appearance and body shapes… Girls want the schools to ‘catch up’ with the pressures on teenage lives and address the issues openly. Body confidence issues are one of their biggest worries,’ she says.
Later this year the petition will be presented to policy makers at Downing St to try and secure body confidence on the PSHE syllabus.
