Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 309

Yes it is already time for the April prompt. This year is zooming by fast. Check out all the details on Sinful Sunday April Prompt.

In the meantime it is my great pleasure to welcome the fabulous Emmeline Peaches to the round-up. You can find her on her own blog Emmeline Peaches Reviews and on Twitter @EmmelinePeaches

Emmeline’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

Recently I found myself at the Victoria and Albert Museum admiring the collection of historical attire while accompanied by a wonderfully spooky femme and the most marvellously darling individual I’ve ever had the good fortune to meet.

Together we admired the beautiful adornments that people had worn throughout the years. We found clothes we wanted to own, and clothes we wanted other to wear just so we could tear them off of their bodies and fuck as if time had no meaning.

In amongst it all I also caught glimpse of the most beautiful portrait. It was of a woman (if I might be so bold as to assume gender)—radiant and pure in the elegance of her stature. She stared out from the portrait with a coy smile, letting the viewer know that she had considered her own image something worth preserving in painstakingly exquisite portraiture.

And in that moment I thought “Criticism of selfie culture is bullshit”.

I won’t have been the first person to say this (nor will I be the most succinct in my ramblings) but have someone paint your image, photograph it, or in any other way preserve your form and it is widely considered to be ‘art’. Take a candid or considered shot yourself and suddenly it’s considered vanity.

No.

This amazing woman, who stared back at me had spent a presumably extortionate amount of money (and time) making sure that her image was preserved in its most attractive form for all to see. She would have, no doubt, displayed this image as a status symbol as well as personally admired it and that is friggin’ awesome.

The admiration she felt is one that I can mirror and it’s one I hope every single person who decides that their body is worth preserving in image feels and it is one that I hope each Sinful Sunday entrant can personally relate to.
As I looked through the entries this month (and at those from prior months) I found no vanity. Not a single ounce of narcissism. Nor did I expect to.

What I did find was strong individuals, stunning curvature, beautiful insights, poetic vulnerabilities, and (of course) art in its purest form—that of the self.

It almost breaks my heart to say that I can only select five ‘favourites’ to showcase to you all, when each piece was profoundly evocative in its own way. But there are rules and I have nothing but respect for the wonderful conventions of this fantastic collective. So, without further ado, here are my Sinful Sunday picks for your viewing pleasure.

Rebel’s Notes

You may have heard the saying ‘painting with light’ but Marie Rebelle embodies the phrase in this amazing piece. Marie was debating which image looks best from the natural and edited version and, although both are absolutely stunning, I have to go with the natural one.

The rich hues of the candle’s glow are perfectly contrasted with the deep shadows cast by the darkness of the room. Together these two elements hug Marie’s body in a manner that is simultaneously inviting and intimate.
It welcomes the eye but denies the touch. Just a glimpse—a flicker of insight. And yet it offers everything it needs to.

Exposing 40

Cuuuuuuurvessssss!

*Ahem*

Going back to a more professional demeanour, there is an innate aesthetic appeal in this image for me. The curvature of the female form is something that has always caught my eye and brought a huge grin to my face, and Exposing40 and their friend have read my mind with the bold exclamation ‘WOW’ plastered bombastically over their most intimate areas.

This image also has a socially potent context which deserves attention. WOW is the Women of the World festival—a conglomeration of influential activists and passionate allies in the cause of championing women and their achievements.

All of this is brilliantly encapsulated in the playful confidence of the image and finished off with the wonderful poses of the two individuals featured. What is there to say except…wow.

Aurora Glory

‘Make your feet take you where your heart wants to go!’

What a lovely little mantra! And when your heart wants to adorn your feet in some of the most satisfying rope ties I’ve seen in a while then I must agree with a wholehearted nod.

Aurora Glory suggests that she is ‘awful’ because her love of rope comes from the sheer attractiveness of the practice, but I personally think this s something that Aurora embodies to the splendour. The antonym of ‘awful’.

The symmetrical appeal of the rope is contrasted here with the beautifully imperfect asymmetry of Aurora’s toes, which subtly remind us of the delicate familiarity of the human form.

All-in-all it’s one absolutely mesmerizing piece and I can barely prize my gaze away from it.

The Monkey and The Sorts

The delight of having a new toy. The skip of excitement as you glance it across your body. The anticipation of that biting moment to come next, less than a hair away. So close you can already see it. Feel it. Living for the moment.

That moment has been brilliantly captured in Bibblybobbily’s contribution this week. The macro detail is so precise that I can almost place myself in the moment, imagining the sensations.

This ability to immerse the viewer is, for many, the key to all great art, and New Toys has definitely reached this achievement.

Skinography

Male nude

There is a softness to this image. A subtlety that gentle urges the viewer to glance, if they wish, at where the light falls.

It is a beautiful invitation—handsome, confident, and daring. The posture, the turn, and the slight clenching of the fist implying that we have caught Skinography at an inopportune moment, but everything else suggesting that we are exactly where they want us to be.

Will images such as this one day hang at the V&A? Framed by cravats and floral nightgowns. God I hope so.

The Truth of Me – Guest Post

Well I couldn’t let Molly’s 300th Sinful Sunday pass without joining in, what an awesome achievement! I have seen so many amazing images over my 5 years as a regular voyeur of the meme. I have been lifted and inspired by you all. The community that Molly and you all have nurtured, supported and embraced has grown somewhat over that time, which a testament in its self.

I have seen so many of you grow and develop a wonderful scene and understanding of self love and positivity when you see yourselves as we do and realising the enormous empowerment, joy and freedom there is to found in it.

Today’s image is one of my favourites, Its my go to image in those moments that I doubt myself or just need to silence the demons that we all have from time to time. I trust this image and Molly’s skill as a photographer unquestioningly. It shows me the truth of me.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 201

Just a quick reminder that because it is a short month the first weekend of March is rapidly approaching and that means it will be Monthly Prompt time. For now though it is over to Sassy Cat for this weeks round-up

Sassy Cat’s Tops 5 pics of the Week

I am thrilled, honoured and what a privilege to have been asked to select this week’s Top 5 erotic photographs. The photographs aroused, titillated and tantalized the senses. I admire the ideas, the creativity and editing skills of the participants that share their photo each Sunday. Each week I see glimpses into the lives of others, through a single photo one can be a voyeur, one can become aroused while another can be challenged to step outside their comfort zone. All of this is a positive close net community that is known as Sinful Sunday.
What a difficult task, to pick only 5. Here it goes…

Penny for your Dirty Thoughts

Penny in erotic embrace of Jake

This is an amazing photo, so professional looking. Something one sees in a Beach Get-A-Way advert in a magazine. Everything about this photo is prefect; from the positioning of their hands, to the expression on Penny’s face to Jake’s tilt of his head. Full of passion, lust and desire.

Molly’s Daily Kiss

Molly Laying in the snowdrops

Molly’s white outfit along with the white flowers pops against nature’s green landscape. The quote goes perfectly with this photo, it makes me feel dirty & innocent all at once. There is a magical feel to this photo. I keep looking for fairies or woodland creatures to come out to look at the beauty that rests in their forest.

Cammies on the Floor

Woman with heart shaped wax on her back

The colorful heart pops in the gray photo and adds that one thing that draws my eyes from the top of her bringing my eyes downward. COTF made me understand how men feel when they look at a woman from this view. The curves of her body and the photo being cropped at the right place that drives my imagination wild. I understand why men place their hands on the curve of a women’s waist. This is a wonderful tease photo in my opinion.

Beck and her Kinks

Women with heart covered tape as a gag

Her eyes draw you in and make you wonder what’s she’s thinking. Whatever she’s thinking she’s not telling!

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 82Whole Sex Life

Woman vampire feasting on manI adore this image, her red eyes are utterly demonic and the way Harold is edited to look cold and lifeless sends a shiver down the spin. This is delicious vampire erotica.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 198

Before I hand over to @ht_honey for the round-up this week just a quick reminder that this Sunday is the prompt weekend which is; Abstract

Honey’s Top 5 pics of the week

My first reaction when Molly asked me to do the roundup was surprise. Surprise, followed by excitement, followed by oh-my-goodness-how-will-I-ever-choose-five-EEK! Fortunately, since that time, I have calmed down and definitely embraced the opportunity (embracing Sinful Sunday is definitely to be recommended).

So, here goes. After several very pleasurable sessions of exploring this week’s posts, I have finally narrowed it down to eight wonderful pictures.  Eight? Aargh. Hang on. I’m not allowed eight. This is harder than it seems.

Cutting down the list to five has been very hard. There are such beautiful images and they all draw me in in different ways. Here are my final top five.

The first image is from ExhibitA’s monthly Anonymous post.

Womans breast in winter park

This picture compelled me to go back to it many times. There is such a crisp wintery beauty to this shot and the figure at the edge of the frame absolutely fits the mood. In addition to that, I love the fact that the picture was inspired by ExhibitA’s own tale of naked sunbathing there.

The next image is from Jack and Jill.

I know Sinful Sunday is all about the image, but in this case, it was the combination of both the words and picture that was so extremely hot. The imagery of the words is so deeply intimate, it triggers all the feelings of being a secret voyeur of a very private moment. I was unable to read it without my own breathing slowing to match the words.

Sassy Cat’s image is next.

Woman with mouth gagged and pleading eyes

Sassy Cat posted a wonderful series of images but this one stood out for me. It is absolutely beautifully composed and her eyes are amazing. They have entranced me and I adore the look in them. I keep coming back to this image, trying to read her thoughts in that moment.

Sindoll’s image comes next.
Women bowing head with long eyelashes
On seeing this my immediate reaction was ‘wow’. This image is so rich in both beauty and meaning. For me, it captures an essence of submission and the serenity that it can bring. The colours make me aware of warmth and love, which in turn makes me think of security and belonging. This picture does all of this, and as well as that, have you seen those eyelashes?
The final image belongs to Cammies On The Floor.
shadow of woman in rope suspension
As soon as I saw this image, I knew that it would be in the top 5 and I knew that anything else was going to have a very tricky time beating it to my favourite. This image is so clever and it can take a moment for your brain to make sense of it but once it does -WOW! First there is the awesomeness of the suspension. Then add to that the beautiful sight of her at the left edge. The element that made this image irresistible to me was the shadow. There is such a strong feeling of cheek and mischief in the silhouette. It reminded me of something from Peter Pan and made me certain that there was joy and delight when that picture was taken.My final words are to thank Molly for the opportunity to write this round up and for running Sinful Sunday. I hope everyone keeps making it such a challenge to narrow the choices down to five every week.

Blast from the Past
Woman bending over picnic tableFor me this image is actually all about the shadows, I just love the way they are decorating Dee’s beautiful bottom and legs making them look like someone has painted some sort of abstract art on her skin.
