We all know that the internet is awash with erotic images. I read somewhere recently that something in the order of 90% of traffic on the internet is erotic in nature – although I don’t know how true that is. Okay, so most of what you come across is hard-core porn, but there are also a lot of very tasteful images around too. In fact, I’ve built up quite a collection over the years. Boobs, bums and the suggestive are my favourites. Below are a random selection from my collection and the reasons I like them.*
I love the ambiguity in this picture – or maybe I’m the on;y one that can see it. Those look like men’s jeans to me, but look closely at those underpants. Or should I say knickers. Lacy ones. Is it a man wearing women’s knickers or a woman wearing men’s jeans? Or am I reading too much into it.Either way, with the jeans being pushed down and the bed in the background, this is a sexy shot.
Do I even need to comment on this one? I love that you can’t see faces. I love that it’s dark apart from the focus on the guy’s back and their limbs. I love that she still has her shoes on – and that we can’t she if she’s got anything else on. It’s just very sexy.
I’m not quite sure what it is about this particular shot that I find quite so sexy. I just do. Yes, there’s the bum thing again, but it’s more than that. Perhaps it’s the stark contrast between the white background and the girl. Perhaps it’s what I read into what she’s doing – is she waiting for someone, thinking about someone, what? I love it.
So, what do you think of my choices? I’ll see if I can rustle up some more for next week.
