It's all about the image

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 214

Quick reminder that the prompt for the 1st Sunday in June is now out; Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt June 2015 . Also, I currently have the guest list for the round-up full, up until August, but I am always looking for new people who have not previously written one. So if that is you please do get in touch.

This week I am welcoming erotic author Jodie Griffin to the Sinful Sunday round-up

Jodie’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

As an erotic romance author, I spend a lot of time using words to create a picture.  But when I’m writing, I do often see a scene or a sexual act as a hazy kind of image, blurry around the edges, and I use that to help me describe what my characters are doing.   In a similar way, I’ll often see a photograph that will immediately give me a story idea. It could be as simple as a cup of coffee, a rustic cabin, or a sensual image that makes me stop and think “Oh, wow.”  I’m honored Molly asked me to choose five of my favorite images from this week.  This was much harder a task than I thought it would be – they are all amazing.

Here are the photographs that really spoke to me, the ones that made me see stories:

The Other Livvy

female nude silhouette

I love black and white photos, and I love the pretty outline of her body. I also love the in-the-shadows exhibitionism of this photograph.  It’s dark outside, so maybe no one will see…or maybe they will.

Cammies on the Floor

red colour rope bondage married couple

There’s a lot I love about this picture. The purple rope. The way he’s watching her carefully and touching her gently.  And I love the fact that you can see his wedding band. There’s something incredibly sexy about married kink.

Maria Open’s Up

This is a gorgeous, incredibly sexy image of an imperfect, non-airbrushed body. We’re forever bombarded with images of (usually far too) thin bodies, but rarely do we see voluptuous women in erotic poses. I love this one.

Filth and Erotica

Man in fly button jeans offering collar

This is a photograph that gives me all kinds of story ideas (or plot bunnies, as we call them.) Why are his trousers already open? Is he offering her the collar for the first time? What will she say? I love images like this that leave it up to my imagination to decide what’s going on.

Happy Come Lucky

stripe marks from cane

This photograph reminds me that there is a wide variety and range to kink. For some, this would be warm-up play. For others, edge-play. The criss-crossed cane marks and goosebumps make me think of submission, shivery goodness and floaty headspace.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 213

Quick reminder that the prompt for the 1st Sunday in June is now out; Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt June 2015 and that is all I have for you this week, apart from to introduce to you this weeks guest who is the wonderful Tamsin Flowers

Tamsin’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

A few weeks back, Molly pinged me with a message. Would I be interested in doing the Sinful Sunday Weekly Round Up one week? Yes! Of course I would, I pinged back blithely, without giving it a moment’s thought. After all, how hard can it be to pick your favourite five pictures from a field of 30 or 40? A date was settled upon and put in the diary.

Having agreed, I started to wonder what sort of pictures I’d choose. What makes one picture stand out, while another, possibly quite similar, simply doesn’t have the same effect? What makes different people pick completely different images as their favourite? What is it about certain pictures that snares our attention?

I spend a lot of time on Tumblr – far too much, in fact – so I decided to take a look at my Tumblr feed to see if it shone any light on what, for me at any rate, makes a good picture. I go at Tumblr hard and fast. I follow a lot of blogs and I scroll through them at the speed of light. If a picture makes me stop and go back, it’s a picture I’m likely to reblog. And if you look here at the pictures I do reblog, you’ll see that (discounting the Tom Hiddleston tongue obsession) there’s a very, very definite aesthetic to it. Black and white. Girls. Legs. Stockings. Rope. Handcuffs. Full stop – that’s all.

Those are obviously my obsessions (not that I realised it before I became a Tumblr addict). So when it came to picking my top five for Sinful Sunday, I knew that any pictures that came remotely close to those elements were going to speak to me.

Here are my top five.

Understanding Flutterby

Blurred self portrait in the mirror wearing a corset

This shot stood out for me by a mile. This is literally so hot I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the picture to read the words. But I did. And then the words somehow make the image a thousand times more powerful and more poignant. I’m in love with this picture – it’s simply beautiful.

Love Hate Sex Cake

Cheeky minx nude self portrait

Here’s another stunning image accompanied by powerful words, though I’ve chosen all the pictures on visual merit and only considered the words as an afterthought. There’s something about this picture that speaks of yearning and wistfulness, of longing and expectation. For me, this is also the epitome of pretty. Let me explain – I hate pink, I hate girly, I hate flowers. This is pretty and in some way a little intoxicating.

Behind the Chintz Curtain

Suspenders against thigh

Ah – look at that little bow, nestling on her thigh. Look at the way the fingers are curling in to find their prize. I can almost hear her sharp intake of breath, her sigh of longing. I can virtually see her arching her back and pushing her hips forward. I can, even now, feel the tremble of excitement twisting up through her as her eyes close and her head falls back… Ahhh…

The Other Livvy

Mirror self portrait in the mirror

This is adorable. It has a wonderful vintage feel to it, like a photo from another era, and I love the perfect positioning of her rear view image. This is a woman in full possession of herself and ready to take on the world! I’d love to have this picture on a post card so I could send it out to friends whenever they needed a pep talk or a boost – it just seems to say, Yes, I can do it. I can do all of the things! Just try and stop me!

Illicit Thoughts

Metallic female lips

These are lips to be dived into and, yes, to be thoroughly and wantonly kissed. I know exactly what they’ll taste like – too delicious to ever stop. Part candy, part forbidden fruit, all desirable…they absolutely make my mouth water.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 94 – Cammies on the Floor

Woman selfie in the mirror

I do love a good mirror selfie and this is certainly one of those but I have picked this image because of its place in blogging history as this is the first image that either of the Cammie girls ever posted! I wonder if at the time they had idea where that would lead them. I suspect not.

 

Sinful Sunday Week 213

****How does everyone feel about the new pop-up thumbnail icons on the weekly list? They are just an experiment at the moment, if the majority of people like them then we will keep them but if people hate them, then we can make them go away. So feedback please…

Also, the prompt for the 7th June is out now…. Sinful Sunday June Prompt 2015
