Lately I’ve been considering shaving off my bush for the rest of the summer, but it hasn’t happen yet! If I do I think I’ll feel weird without it…
It was my first time.
I knew he could tell;
His blue eyes reflected
My nervousness, and
“Take off your panties,” he said,
“Leave your heels on.”
I tried my best to look calm
As I slid them off, slowly.
His look was like a touch,
Moving from my feet to my legs,
Pausing at my cunt, then up
To my stomach,
My neck, lingering
On my face.
My skin tingled.
By the time he kissed me,
I was already wet.
He didn’t have to say the words,
I could feel them.
His rough hands pulled me in.
“You’re mine,” they said.

I am in love with The Big Ugly, a blog overflowing with beautiful and inspiring self portraiture. Lauralyn, the photographer/subject/writer of the blog uses what she calls “Cheap Camera/10 second timer Self Portraiture” to capture her images, which are often shot in incredibly intriguing locations and usually leave me wondering, how on earth did she manage to jump so high or get into that position in 10 seconds, let alone create such an amazing photograph in the process??
So when I saw she was having a Self Portrait Challenge, with the rules deeming that each player must use her same “dash” method, I had to try it! Since I typically use my DSLR camera and remote to capture my self portraits, I knew using the 10 second timer method would be a challenge. I even decided to go a step further and use an old FinePix XP point and shoot camera and shoot in an outdoor location, to really push myself and get a feel for what her process is like. Although she uses a gorilla pod, I actually forgot to bring any sort of tripod, upping the ante even further.
Jake came with me for moral support (and as a lookout ), but he wasn’t allowed to help me in the photography process in any way. At first I tried climbing a tree, wedging the camera between some bark to shoot up my body. After one shot that seemed promising, the camera slipped, and I wasn’t able to get it to balance again. Here is the sole photo from that attempt, which I think is actually kinda cool in its own way:
I also tried hanging from/posing by the same tree, without any results I was very happy with. After the tree attempts, I headed over to a rocky area and tried lying on/doing a back-bend over/standing on the rocks.
But I still wasn’t happy with the results I was getting and realized the camera’s battery was already almost dead, so I decided to go for the gold: I set my camera on a nearby bench thing, stripped, and ran across the jagged rocks (stubbing my toe in the process), and threw my arms up as I ignored the pain. The result was my favorite image and the one I entered into the contest. I call it, “Free”:
After the winning shot, I took 3 more photos before the camera died, ending the shoot at a total of 23 photos, only 17 of which actually had enough of me to be recognizable in them.
I already admired Lauralyn’s photographs, but now I am in even more awe of her work after trying the same methods she uses. In the process of trying to capture just one decent image, I ended up sweaty and tired, with a bleeding toe, a mild allergic reaction in the form of a rash on my thighs from straddling the tree, and a new admirer (did I forget to mention a curious guy spotted me at one point?)
When I got home and looked through the images though, I knew it was worth it. I doubt I could have captured the same image if I had time to think and consciously pose like I usually do. There is a magic that comes from spontaneous moments in the creative process, and somehow I managed to get my whole body in the frame and capture a spontaneous, natural pose and feeling. I’m so glad I joined in on her challenge, pushed myself beyond my comfort zone, gained a new perspective on self portraiture, and discovered some other talented artists in the process.
Originally she said there would be 5 winners, but since only 9 photos were entered, and they are literally all amazing, we all won free snazzy Big Ugly T-Shirts! Go us! 🙂
A year ago, I participated in the first ever Wicked Wednesday, a sexy meme created by Rebel after Wanton Wednesday ended. The theme was celebration, and I posted a short piece of erotica paired with an image celebrating self love and masturbation. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since then!
So happy birthday Wicked Wednesday, and thanks to Rebel for creating a space for us to continue sharing our hump day debauchery!
Also, speaking of birthdays, my 2nd blogiversary is coming up in September…feel free to let me know if you have any celebration suggestions. 🙂
This is another photo that I took during my Sin City self portraiture shoot. This one reminds me of Shellie when she says to one of Jackie Boy’s gang:
“Shut up and keep your hands to yourself, or I’ll cut your little pecker off!”
I captured this self portrait while shooting my Sin City images. It didn’t make my final cut for that post, but I really like it & still wanted to share it…
As soon as I saw the “Sexing Up The movies” theme for this week’s Sinful Sunday competition, I knew I wanted to do Sin City, my favorite movie. I had a lot of fun shooting and editing these comic inspired images. This is definitely the longest I’ve ever spent working on a Sinful Sunday post, and I’m proud of how it came out, especially since I did everything by myself!
*My first Sin City image was featured as Beck’s #1 favorite photo for May; thanks Beck! It also placed in the Sinful Sunday competition, and the clover clamps image was featured as the header for e[lust] #46.*
Folding my legs
up, a wider view, he grasps
my ankle as his curls
tease, and a gasp
as his lips,
hot and wet
