Real women in their own place. Not too crazy and just a pinch of naughty…
By creating evocative and alluring portraits of women with body types that have traditionally been left out of mainstream media, Me In My Place is redefining a genre that has been over-run with unrealistic expectations of what it means to be beautiful. With full acceptance of the “male gaze”, the images promote not just acceptance, but also an aspirational message about everyday appeal. The project is a celebration and is meant to be fun and open to all.
In an effort to monetize the project to keep it going, we created a simple mobile web app, more commonly called THE MIMP APP (https://mimp.findrow.com). This gave fans of the project a simple and inexpensive way to show support. In exchange, they receive more images, exclusive images that are not on the tumblr, and the ability to quickly view and ‘like’ their favorite content.
The MIMP APP was such a success, we decided there must be other content providers like us who would like to give their fans something extra, so we created FINDROW. With flexibility that Instagram and Facebook won’t allow, we give our content providers the freedom to express themselves as they see fit… even if that is not always safe for work ;-) Again, they control their own content and are leading the conversation about how they feel beautiful in the world. For a complete list of all the Findrow apps, click here.
Our most common issues with the MIMP MOBILE WEB APP
—All subscriptions to the MIMP APP will automatically renew (annually, every 6 months, and monthly). We are fairly certain you will be a fan for life, but you don’t have to be… Go here (https://mimp.findrow.com/subscription/renew) to turn off your subscription. Just log in and follow the directions to manage your account. Be sure to do so before your renewal date if you don’t want to be charged again.
—Having trouble logging into your MIMP APP account? Make sure to turn off "Private Browsing", that’s usually the culprit: http://osxdaily.com/2011/10/21/private-browsing-ipad-iphone-safari/ Also, make sure you are "allowing cookies" as we have found this to be an issue, especially in iOS6 for apple devices ;-) For Android devices, some browser don’t always play nice with our mobile web app, so try a different browser and see it that helps. We’ve found that Firefox works well and fixes the issues.
—If you did not receive an email confirmation when you signed up, you may have entered the wrong email address when you registered. Please let us know and we’ll be able to help you get up & MIMPing in no time.
—You can reset your password at https://mimp.findrow.com/users/password/new
Other common questions:
"Hey there, I bought the App, and then I looked on my CC statement and there are two charges. WTF!?!?"
Don’t worry, only one of those is actually a charge. The other is a ‘token’ that the transaction system uses to validate your card and will disappear eventually and you will only be charged once.
"Are credit card transactions through MIMP secure & encrypted?"
Absolutely! We use Stripe (https://stripe.com/help/security), who authenticates and encrypts your credit card information on the backend. Your credit card info actually never passes between our forms, but ALL data you pass between our pages (e.g. your name, email address, password, etc) are encrypted on as well for additional security. Just email us if you have any additional questions.
“What does the ‘E’ next to certain girls names mean?”
That means she’s got images that are exclusive to the MIMP MOBILE WEB APP and won’t be seen anywhere else… Welcome to the party…
"I want the App, but I don’t want anyone (you know who) to see it on my phone."
We hear ya. Not to worry, since this is a web based app, you don’t have to have the widget on your home page. You can just open your browser on your phone, go to meinmyplace.com, and click on the Mobile MIMP Web App menu item from the sidebar and it will take you to the log-in page. Enter User/Password and you’re off and MIMPing and no one will be the wiser… A little more work, a lot more discreet.
"I don’t have a smartphone, will this work on my computer at home?"
Yes it will! The MIMP APP is fully functional on desktop computers too.
BEING FEATURED ON MEINMYPLACE.COM
"I love your site and want to be photographed, how do I do I get involved?"
I’m always looking for new people to feature on the site. Best thing to do is use the submission link to send my your contact information and a picture or two. I’ll keep it on file there and get in touch if/when I can make a shoot happen.
"How much does it cost to be photographed?"
The shoots are free. I figure if you have the courage to do a shoot, that is all you need :-)
"Where are you located?"
I’m in New York City, but travel to Los Angeles often as well. So far most of my shoots have been in those two cities, but I’m looking to take the show on the road, so don’t feel that your location is a problem. I just got a request from Brazil, so all I need now is a good price on a ticket…
"How long do the shoots take?"
Usually 3 to 4 hours. During the day is best…
YOU ARE A MIMP FAN
First off, let me just say thank you for supporting MeInMyPlace. We can’t do it with out fans like you, so keep spreading the word.
"I made a comment and you deleted it. WTF? What happened to free speach?!?!?"
Me In My Place is a positive environment where the beauty of all women is celebrated. The women featured on this site have put forth a lot of courage to share themselves with everyone here. It is at my discretion that comments are deleted. Please, if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. And keep it clean… no one really wants to hear what you would ‘do to her’ if you were standing in the room… Consider that free advice from all the beautiful women in the world…
