Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 188

The new monthly prompt is now out. I am excited about this one as I think it has real potential to inspire people to indulge in some creative editing. You can find all the details on Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt 11.

In the meantime it gives me truly great pleasure to welcome yet another guest to these pages and this week it is the fabulous blogger and erotic writer, Malin James. While not a contributor to Sinful Sunday herself I knew she was a big fan of the meme and so I invited her to come a dip her pen in the sexy imagery of Sinful Sunday and I have to say her write-up is a true delight. Enjoy!

Malin’s Top 5 pics of the week

When Molly asked me to pick the round up this week, I was delighted. Of course I said yes. I had no idea how difficult it would be. I love art and photography. I love visual aesthetics. With so many honest, beautiful, irreverent and touching images to go through, I needed to something to guide me through. I needed to understand why I couldn’t let certain photographs go, because those images that stayed with me in the middle of the night, were ultimately the ones I put in my top five.

In the end, I’m a writer. I look for the story in everything, and the five images I finally, (and with great difficulty), chose, are not only beautiful, but also narrative. There are stories in these photographs that drew me in, made me wonder, made me think and made me feel. I love catching glimpses of humanity, especially when the glimpses are fleeting. And so here, in no particular order, is my Sinful Sunday Round Up. Thank you to all the participants – you made my job exceedingly hard, and all the more pleasurable for it.

Behind The Chintz Curtain

naked self portrait of a photographer

I realize this may sound over the top, but there is nothing I don’t love about this image. I love the elegant curve of her body behind the angular tripod, the way one of her hands rests lightly in her lap, while the other holds the camera with an easy, natural grace…. Aside from the fact that it’s the sort of photograph I could easily imagine seeing in a gallery, the overall effect is strong, feminine and intimate—a portrait of the relationship between the photographer and her work.

Molly’s Daily Kiss

Topless tomboy climbing tree wearing rainbow suspenders

There’s something irresistibly impish about this photo. Maybe it’s the popping sherbet color of Molly’s rainbow suspenders, or the way she seems to be peeking at something beneath her branch, but I smiled every time I looked at it. It warmed me up and made me think of Puck in Midsummer Night’s Dream. The composition is beautiful, the colors are rich, it’s balanced and polished and quite frankly perfect, but ultimately, it made me feel good. That’s why I couldn’t let it go.

Maria Opens Up

Woman in winter sweater with mug of tea and breasts showing

That textured, nubby, sweater, the lovely glimpse of smooth cleavage, (highlighted by that gorgeous, soft lighting), her fingers wrapped around the ceramic mug, the homey wooden table…. God, what’s not to love about this? Like “Tomboy,” this photograph made me smile. Winter is, without a doubt, my favorite season, and this photo captures so much of what I love about it—the casual, cozy sexiness of being warm indoors when it’s cold outside. It made me long for snow and ice beyond the window, and a fire in the grate.

Her Second Chance

Woman on sofa with Tomboy look and girl between her thighs

I am a sucker for androgyny, and even more so for ambiguity. That crisp white shirt, the white suspenders, the tilt of the fedora over the eyes, that slight, whisper of a smile—it all makes me wish I was curled up in one of the leather club chairs across the room. It’s impossible to tell if her hands are bound above her head, or if they’re simply resting there in cocky satisfaction. Either way, this image is a story and half, and gorgeously sexy too.

That Position

Man laying naked on bed

It’s true that what first caught my attention is the subject’s excellent bum, but pleasing anatomy isn’t what made me choose it in the end. It was the sweet, domestic homeyness of the image overall. The rumpled duvet, the soft hair on his legs, and his sleepy relaxation all reminded me of the very best sort of Sunday morning. It’s an intimate portrait that made me hope they spent the whole lazy day in bed.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 69Frisky in the 916

Woman in bubble bath masturbating

Sometimes an image makes me smile, sometimes it makes think dirty bad thoughts and sometimes it makes me want something and this is one of those images. It makes me want to disappear off upstairs, run a big hot bath with lots of bubble bath and lay back in it and enjoy the relaxation that the heat and water brings and maybe beneath those bubbles reach down and find my own heat. This image makes me want….

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 186

Just a little reminder to check out the post I made here earlier in the week about this coming Sunday and a competition being run by Exhibit A: Sinful Stories 2 Competition

This weeks top 5 pics

I really loved all the Halloween themed entries this week, it was so difficult to pick just 5 to showcase here because they were all so good but in the end I have settled on this little lot.

The Sin Doll

Sexy witch swirling her cape

The movement is this image is just perfect, it really gives the impression of a witch about to take flight, all she needs is a broomstick and I think it would have looked exactly like she was taking off. I love the flash of thigh and the slightly rugged socks and boots, along with the dark raven hair she just seems to have nailed the witch look.

Maria Open’s Up

Woman with blood on her lips leaving a room

I really had quite a strong visceral reaction to this image, there is something so very suggestively dark about it. The little trickle of blood running from the corner of her mouth, her bare breasts and her hand pulling the door closed on the darkened room behind her just seems to be so full of wicked, sinister implications.

A to sub Bee

Womans bum painted as a pumpkin with body paintThis has to be one of those images where there should be an award for going above and beyond the call of duty because this is just epic. I am fairly sure Sub Bee didn’t paint this on herself, if she did then she must be more flexible than I imaged which means that her Mister clearly has some hidden artistic talents. I hope that we get to see more of them in the future because this is quiet frankly awesome and from now I want one of these pumpkins in my front window on Halloween!

Penny for your Dirty Thoughts

topless woman wearing scream mask and brandishing knife

All three of Penny’s image this week are disturbing and fucking sexy in equal measure but I have picked this one as my favourite of the bunch. I love the way she is crouching, which is usually a pose that suggests vulnerability but in this case she looks powerful and strong, like a predator ready to pounce and the focus on the knife means your eyes starts there before being drawn deeper into the sinister chilling nature of the image.

Beck and her Kinks

Woman laying on floor with bloody knife

I adore this image, the bloody knife laying discarded in front of Becks gives it a chilling tone and the lighting and muted tones makes it feel like a movie poster for a slasher horror film but it is Becks eyes that really send shivers down my spine. Her wide eyed stare straight into the camera is captivating and she looks some how both oddly innocent and demon-like all that same time. Brilliant photography.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 67 – Sex with Rose

Woman showing of school girl panties

This image with the plaid skirt and white shirt is appropriately titled School Girl but what really seems to encompass that school girl outfit and kink is the plain white knickers and with Rose’s hand giving a hint of movement to the image it is those deceptively innocent panties that keep drawing my eye in.


Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 184

The new monthly prompt for November is out now. You can find all the details on Monthly Prompt 10 and get your posts ready for the 2nd November.

This weeks top 5 pics

Happy Come Lucky

Woman glimpsing out from behind a fan

I have come back to this view this image a few times since I first saw it on Sunday, there is just something about it that keep pulling me back in for another look. There is something very intriguing about it, the slight blur in the image suggest movement but the angle of the shot also makes me feel like we are capturing a fleeting glimpse of a hidden beauty secreted away behind her fan or maybe it is the other way and she in fact sneaking a peek at us.

Big Butt BBW Considers

Woman's body turned into brickwork

This is an amazing portrait which when combined with her words creates a stark and powerful narrative about  mental health. The contrast between the harsh lines of the brick work compared to the soft lines of the shape of your body makes for a really strong image that sums up the feeling of being locked inside oneself.

Sex with Rose

Cock shot up the bodyThis is way more than a cock shot, it is sexy, sensual and intimate. The lines of light up his torso draw the eye in over his beautiful cock and I can imagine someone running their fingers downwards through that light. This is one of those images that elicits a strong visceral reaction in me that has me drifting off into a land of happy cockcentric thoughts.

Exhibit A

man getting naked in sports locker room

I don’t think I have ever considered locker rooms to be sexy places but seeing this shot from Exhibit A I think I might have missed a trick. I love that all his stuff is scattered around him, it gives the shot great authenticity and the way his shirt is pulled up over his head actually seems to give in a odd air of vulnerability in an environment where you not expect to find it.

Whole Sex Life

Kyke and Evoe getting it onIf you have not visited Evoë post then you must and you will see why I had such a hard time picking just one image to feature here. After a LOT of looking I picked this one because I felt it summed up the whole series perfectly. There is a real electricity between these two lovers which I found absolutely mesmerizing and there is something about the power dynamic in this shot which is emphasized by the contrast between the leather jacket and her state of semi undress that I just insanely hot.

Blast from the Past

Week 65His Precious Pet

Woman with head in washing machine showing of bumI don’t think it is possible to look at this shot and not smile at the playful cheeky nature of it. I look at this and I can only assume that lots of giggles where part of making this image. It just has the feel about it. I love the little kick of her heel and also the reflection of her back and bottom in the glass door of the washer. Sinful Sunday is about having fun with your camera and I think this shot is a prefect example of someone doing that.


Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 183

The new monthly prompt for November is out now. You can find all the details on Monthly Prompt 10 and get your posts ready for the 2nd November.

Due to having rather a lot of work on at the moment I recently put out a call on Twitter to see if anyone would like to contribute to the weekly round-up. As a result, over the next couple of months I am hoping that you will see less of my favourite pictures and more of other peoples. Traditionally the last round-up of the month has always been in the hands of the guest poster but for now, there will be more a few more voices taking over this space starting this week with my friend @HopeAlways2

Hope Always Top 5 Pics of the Week

When Molly asked if anyone could help out with doing a #SinfulSunday round up, I put my hand up. Oh dear silly me, what was thinking, as I then began to wonder what it was I could offer. I am neither a Blogger nor a photographer, although I am one of the many thousands of readers that all you lovely bloggers out there aim your words and pictures at. Your audience if you will, so I thought  maybe I could offer a slightly different view point, even if sometimes I can be a bit unique in my perceptions and interpretations.

I am a very visual person. However that being said, you can show me a technically perfect and beautiful photograph or an acclaimed painting by a famous artist and they can do absolutely nothing for me. Images for me, of any form, have to at first glance just visually click, ignite a spark or evoke a response, whether that is physical, emotional, intellectual or indeed just set my imagination in motion.

So as #SinfulSunday is all about the image. I have made my choices for this week’s round up based on the impact of the responses they had on me. As those of you who may know me putting my feelings and thoughts into words is not one of my strongest points. I hope I have done justice to the images I have chosen.

Molly’s Daily Kiss

Woman laying naked on fallen tree

First off I must include this one from Molly. I love the contrast of her smooth skin against the rough bark and the way her body seems to mirror the contours of the fallen tree as they both lay there. This one has the extra dimension of empathy for me because as soon as I clicked the link and saw this image it brought a huge smile to my face and evoked happy memories of resent walks with Molly and her camera  I could almost feel the sun and breeze on my skin again, and yes, you can just lay there and forget the world, even if it is only for a short time.

Rebel’s Notes

Suction cup on nipple

Well this one certainly provoked a physical response. As soon as I saw it my nipples went hard and there was that tell tale throb and twitch (dare I say it) *points and says “down there”. I was at a loss as to why for a short while, as up until I saw this image I have shied away from suction caps for one reason or another. Until I realised it was the shape of Rebel’s breast against her black sleeve, the hint of red on her nails and the impression of a gentle steady pull to the point where pleasure and pain mix just seem to do it for me.

Cammies on the Floor

Man fingering woman

I liked this one for a couple of reasons. Firstly as I had my first glimpse of it the filter used caused my eyes to try and focus and make the image a little sharper, which in turn gave the illusion of a slight movement that held me and drew me in further. Secondly for the way the image shows us so much about what is happening in this very sensual moment, and yet keeps that special feeling of intimacy a little more private between the two of them.

Stranded in Toronto

Tit fucking

Mr Stranded has captured a wonderfully intimate moment. I was held by the kiss which has the slightest feel of movement, giving it an extra depth and a glimpse of the passion.  It was only when I looked at the image as a whole did I see the full extent of their intimacy, and found myself hoping that Mrs stranded had her hands on his bum pulling him ever so slightly closer. This has a lovely feel of everyone being so comfortable with each other, allowing Mr Stranded to see and capture this beautiful image.

Stella Kiink

Torn condom packet

My top pick for this round up encompasses what #SinfulSunday is all about for me ‘The image’  It is simple yet so very affective, allowing each and every viewer to interpret the image in their own unique way. It set my imagination going in all directions and in a very short space of time I had three possible scenarios to this image. It is in my opinion the ideal book cover for an anthology, filled with every viewer’s scenarios, interpretation and the fantasies it inspired.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 64Sex With Rose

silhouette of Roses boobSimple, elegant, sensual and beautiful are the words that spring to mind when I see this image. I love the little strands of hair that are just sneaking in and also my eye keeps flitting between the delicate curve of her breast and the little glimmer of light through the arch in her back.
