Where can I find photographs of nude models for figure-drawing practice and non-commercial artwork?

I want to draw some people, but I want them to be nude, so I can get used to how bodies work. I want 'natural' poses, mostly - not cheesecake. Bigger photographs are better than smaller ones, but I can deal with any size as long as it's big enough to make out the major topography.
on Deviantart is perfect. (Warning: NSFW.) Lots of variety in the poses, many of them natural standing or sitting poses, posting explicitly for the purpose of being an artists' model.
I haven't found a comparable female model yet, after having sifted through a bunch of webcam poses.
So, other resources? Suggest it even if it's obvious - I'm new to this so I don't know about them!
