Story ByLee Bullen, Sub EditorJoseph Golder, AgencyNewsflash

Playboy shock model and naturist Marisa Papen has launched a ‘Naked Atlas’ webpage featuring all the countries she has ever posed nude – including her famous photoshoots at the Vatican and Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall.

Naked Atlas features images of Papen’s saucy photoshoots in a total of 48 different countries around the world.

The gorgeous Belgian model, 27, launched Naked Atlas on her website marisapapen.com after her controversial exploits saw her banned from many of the world’s biggest social networks.

Papen has stripped for the camera at some of the UK and US’ most famous landmarks as well as in countries across Africa, Asia, South America and even the South Pacific.

Photographs and videos of Papen made headlines around the world when she was imprisoned after posing naked at the Karnak Temple Complex near the Egyptian city of Luxor.

The shock model has also posed nude at famous religious sites such as The Vatican, the Wailing Wall, and Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia where she famously lifted up her burka to reveal her genitals.

The anti-religious photo series was called ‘FXCKRLGN’. Papen also uses her ‘artivism’ to highlight environmental and social issues.

Papen told Newsflash: “Naked Atlas kind of came to life organically, after I realised just how many countries I’ve been wandering around naked!

“People resonate with the concept so much, I get daily invitations from people asking me to explore their hometown or country.”

She added: “To me it shows a unified world, a freer world, a world where our bodies are not just seen as sexual but as creations of art.

“We get to use that creation of art to create even more art, thereby creating each day exactly the way we want it to be.”

Papen told Newsflash that she is in talks with several production companies about adapting her naked exploits into a possible documentary.

She also mentioned that she is considering publishing a Naked Atlas book, but admits that she has not finished exploring new places and producing even more provocative photos just yet.

The Belgian model added: “Perhaps in a couple of years, or even much later in my life, who knows.

“It’s just so intriguing how nudity is perceived differently all over the world.”

Papen told Newsflash: “The main goal of Naked Atlas is to create the feeling of unity and oneness. There is only one Earth (no border, one race) and as far as I know, we are the only species embarrassed or confused about our bodies.

“We have become prisoners of our culture. I hope Naked Atlas inspires people to enjoy nature in their natural state as well.”

She added: “The more skin we reveal in our everyday life, the faster it becomes normalised.”

In November last year, Papen posed for a series of photos in Iceland to highlight the effects of climate change as part of her project ‘PLASTICSUSHI’.

The gorgeous model told Newsflash: “I had to strip off and lie on the ice. I didn’t see any other naked person jumping around laughing, it was certainly a challenge but I enjoyed every moment.”
