Screw Taboo’s top 5 Pics of the Week
“Yes, Dorian, you will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you have never had the courage to commit.” ~ ‘The Picture of Dorian Grey’-Oscar Wilde
I love seeing the Sinful Sunday photos but I have never participated myself. Despite being a confidently kinky woman, the shame-ridden person I once was still whispers in my ear from time to time. I think many of us have a little voice that tells us we should be ashamed, that we aren’t worthy, that our bodies are not acceptable. Putting an image of yourself or your sexual life online despite the nattering voice takes spunk so picking just five images wasn’t easy. You all represent the “sins” I haven’t yet had the courage to commit.
Often the images depicting sex show it as sultry, serious and sophisticated but sometimes sex is just silly! I can imagine the fun Little Switch Bitch and her partner had taking these pictures.
On the face of it it’s just a few tablets but those tablets represent an experience that many men have, the confidence to speak to a doctor and the reward for asking for what you need. There isn’t a hint of shame or embarrassment in the photo and that’s exactly how it should be.
I was drawn to this one because a photographer photographing a camera is pretty meta but there’s also a certain voyeuristic quality to it that I love.
I don’t know whether it’s because I associate cherries with ice cream sundaes but I can imagine this scene taking place in a 1950s style diner. I love the playfulness. It’s flirtatious in the way you could feign innocence…but I’m not sure anyone would believe you.
Strength, balance, confidence and facing the day head on. I wish I could bottle the essence of this photo.
