The following is a picture that I thought would never be posted publically, and certainly not by me.
I would have no problem having a picture like this taken of myself today.
Recently on the website bondage.com I had some images of myself go up- some of which were very graphic. I’ve grown much more comfortable over the monthes about content- I no longer have a “no spreads” rule, for instance.
I’m unsure of why this is. It’s possible that I’ve just given into the pressure to be more explicit, or to be more appealing to both viewers and photographers. It’s also possible that I’m just more comfortable with my body.
I’ve gotten the “slippery slope” lecture from various people, and have never given it much weight. But time seems to suggest that maybe I should. Will a year later find me doing insertions? How about G/G, or B/G? When does an anal gang bang on film start to look okay to me?
I don’t want to take on an elistist attitude that a lot of people who are right on the edge of the pornographic seem to get- “Oh, I’d never do that! I’m too good for that!”
But if I’m not too good for those things, and my comfort level changes, should I do them?
