    Try to think less symbolically and more maturely. Think of it as just an object.

    Remember you're just looking at shapes, that's pretty much it.

    L o L This is ridiculous man, grow up, try to just look at the shapes and concentrate on your drawing instead of the weird stuff that might be going on your mind.

    Your problem is your art classes actually have a budget.

    Go to a cheap Junior College for figure drawing classes, your female models will look like old hobos pulled right off from the street. And in all likelihood, they will in fact be old hobos.

    Problem solved.

    And if you get a boner in that class, you'll know to seek professional help.
    And knowing is half the battle.

    It might be good if you could imagine your ideal woman as someone named George, slathered in baked beans and chocolate...

    ^ Made me laugh out loud in a library. THANKS.

    On what Anid Maro said, I actually prefer... uglier models because they are more interesting to draw, they can have a shit load more character.

    Models actually like you to tell them you have one. Don't think they don't notice either.

    The best models aren't the prettiest or the sexiest. They're the ones who you can learn the most from. The ones who are imaginative, full of character, and who can stay-fucking-still for 3 hours. =P
