Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 306

Don’t forget that it will soon be March and that means it will be prompt weekend!

A big welcome to this weeks guest on the round-up who is Lapsed Catholic Wife and a big thank you to her too because she stepped in to do this at the very last minute when someone else couldn’t do it. You can also find her on Twitter @lapsedcatholic1

Lapsed Catholic Wife’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

I was flabbergasted and delighted to be asked to step in to pick my top five this week.  I can not believe that we are on the cusp of Spring and this has been reflected in a lot of the images this week.  My own participation in Sinful Sunday has opened a wealth of fun and confidence and I have had the added bonus of burgeoning friendships.

My choices are based simply on the fact I enjoyed and liked the images, I am not a photographer myself and admire the talent pool that is Sinful Sunday.  There is a theme to my choice which is the lack of colour, sometimes it makes the image sharper and more dramatic to my untrained eye.

Exposing 40

I just enjoyed the framing of this image, with a perfect fit within the stone wall.  There is so much detail in this black and white shot and I can’t help but feel the body is beautiful as are the surroundings. I want to know what she is gazing at as she sits there in wonderful glory.

Exhibit A

Nude of man with vintage camera in front of his tummy

Not only have I been introduced to Mapplethorpe I just find the image both sexy and interesting. The clarity of this image compared to the original is far better in my opinion.  You have made the male body inspiring and beautiful and the positioning of the camera is just perfect.

Maria Open’s Up

Maria continues the theme of photography in black and white.  My eye is drawn not just to the perfect nipple and surrounding flesh but the actually setting as if I was peeping onto the seabed.  It is intriguing and clever and I love it.  I almost expect a fish to swim past as I am gazing at the image.

Sexual Adventures of a Married Woman

Woman bent over desk with her bum exposed

The perfect lust that this image conjures up.  It is the perfect line of her leggings against the smooth flesh and exposure of the bottom that leads me to surmise that ample fun was obtained within a short period of time.  I can almost feel the desire in that image.

The Monkey and the The Sorts

Penis with love heart sweets along it

I adore the simple fun of this image and not only does the subject matter draw the eye to the inevitable homage to the cock but the words depicted on the love hearts add a further touch of delight.

This is simply exquisite. I love the softness, the way the two images are the same and yet somehow completely different. They both compliment and contrast each other.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 305

Yes we are already galloping towards March and the next prompt is out now for you to work on. March Monthly Prompt.

This weeks round-up guest is Maria from Maria Open’s Up. She has been a long time contributor to Sinful Sunday and her images are always a delight. She has a truly great eye for composition and it is wonderful to have her back in this space picking her top five again.

Maria’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

It’s been just over two years since my last Sinful Sunday round-up which means it’s been not quite three years since I learned about Sinful Sunday and started participating in this gorgeous, beautiful community. I love it. I love the unique and varied personalities that take part, I love the range of reasons that people participate, I love the warm care that everyone gets when they enter here. It’s a special place. And it was super fun to get to do the round-up again. Thanks Molly!

In addition to all of the warmth and acceptance and nurturing, the other thing I love about this place is that it’s a forum for us to express ourselves artistically. Sinful Sunday has allowed me to get personal with my art in a way that I never have before. Even the concept of “my art” is a thing that I wasn’t comfortable talking about before Sinful Sunday and for that, I’m grateful.

I know Sinful Sunday is many things to many people (that’s the total beauty of it after all) and every week I’m delighted, inspired, and challenged by the wide range of sexy, beautiful, interesting, boundary pushing images. So it’s no surprise that picking five favorites out of such a wide selection of gems was no easy task.

In my first pass through, I thought a did a pretty good job of narrowing it down and then had to laugh when I noticed the large number of tabs I had left open as favorites! However, I gave myself a day and came back to the open tabs, and really pondered what drew me to each image. The results are below.

Accidental Masturbator

Accidental Masturbator says he doesn’t like this photo, and I do understand about how the circumstances of taking a photo can make you like it less or more, but I have to say on just visual merits, I think it’s outstanding. The phone camera and the photoshopping that he was worried about add a painterly quality to this that I really love. If you told me this was done in acrylics or even pastels, I would believe you. The colors are beautiful, the shapes are intriguing and nearly abstract, it takes a split second to see what is there.I also love, love, love the metallic of his zipper and the belt buckle. They almost seem to glow and draw your eye around the image.

Modesty Ablaze

Modesty’s photo stories never fail to make me smile. The bravery and the cheek and the sheer joy she has in being the star of her scavenger hunt adventures is such a delight and I’m always happy when a new adventure pops up on Sinful Sunday. This series of photos was particularly delightful. The opening photo of her standing at the bus stop is so casual and cool! I love the quilted jacket and stripe-topped stockings. It’s a completely incongruous image, yet she fits perfectly into her surroundings. And the images of her on the bus! That smile is everything!

Molly’s Daily Kiss

Is there anything better than Molly in nature? She has the ability to really embody a character, especially when she’s in her outdoor element. I suspect she’s really a nature goddess masquerading as a human. This photo just made me smile so much. Here is an adorably sweet fairy girl (and very mischievous too – she’s probably got magical potions to work on for fairy school, but instead she’s snuck off to the garden to read!) And I get all that personality just because of one toe curled over the other. I love how one tiny element can totally transport an image and turn it into a full story. Of course it’s not just that toe – it’s the vibrant color of the book and the greenery and the perfect stone toadstool, and the just slightly off-center positioning and all the little details that I know are not happenstance when it comes to a photo by Molly.

Pain as Pleasure

As soon as I saw this photo I knew it would be in my top five. The image is so full of detail, every time I look I see something new. There’s a gritty tone to the image, probably because it looks like it was taken with a phone in low light, that really adds to the sensual, sexy, smoky mood. I love that we can see the shadow of the crop he is holding along the sub’s body. And the pose of the domme, leaning back as she snaps the pic in the mirror, just exudes confidence, sex, relaxation and control. This photo tells a definite story and while the photo absolutely stands alone, I would suggest reading @BibulousOne’s sexy, cathartic accompanying blog posts describing this event. What a treat.

Penny for your Dirty Thoughts

Topless picture of penny with 3 ghostly heads

I mentioned in my comment on Penny’s photo that I thought she was a goddess of the self-portrait and I totally stand by that remark. Her portraits are often beautiful, surprising, challenging, emotional, fun and sometimes all of those things combined. I’m inspired by her work and this particular photo really spoke to me. You can see her face clearly in each layer, but also the details blend together to create motion and emotion. This is one of those images that says so much to each individual viewer. I bet if we did a poll, everyone would have a different gut feeling about what the many faces in this image imply. It’s wonderful.

Sinful Sunday Week 183 – Happy Come Lucky

Woman looking up at camera in the darkness of her car

There is something about this image that just draws me in. I look into Honey’s eye and I see a wickedness that I recognise and it makes me smile a knowing conspiratorial grin. I guess I see a fellow naughty girl in this image and that is what draws me into it.

Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 304

Some of the monthly prompts inspire more than others. That is the nature of the beast when it comes to these things and it can be very hard to predict which ones will get everyone’s creative juices flowing and which won’t. Minimalism was one I felt would stretch people’s skills but I also hoped that it might inspire folks to explore a style of image that they had previously not attempted. I think the list of entries speaks for itself when it comes to seeing if that was achieved. As a result my job this month was a tough but very enjoyable one.

Molly’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

Hush: It’s a Secret

Butt plug left on bed with crumpled sheet as backgroun

One of the key things about minimalist photography is using negative space to create an impact. Parallel Secrets has used that concept to great effect here. The plug sits in solitary isolation on what is clearly a bed, hinting at it use but what is really clever in this image is that the negative space, the creased sheet, adds to the narrative of this shot.

Tabitha Rayne

Half face of woman looking down at the viewer with ceiling light behind her head

When I first looked at this image I got completely lost in the Tabitha’s face because it is definitely the dominating feature in this image. It was only when I went back to it that I noticed the title and how the light above her head makes us the ones ‘holding still’ so that Tabitha can look at us. It has an eerie, clinical feel to it that gives me goosebumps.

Teachers Have Sex

Wartenberg wheel on womans thigh

This will be her last Sinful Sunday for a while as she is off on some adventures but she has definitely ended her current run on a high point with this beautifully shot image. The focal point is absolutely spot on, right at the head of the pinwheel whilst the rest of the image which is soft and delicate provides both context and contrast.

Exhibit A

Nude of man dissected by rungs on a ladder

This one has an slight retro erotic art feel to it. I think it is the slight graininess and the lack of contrast that gives the impression of it being taken on something other than a digital camera but what I really like about this shot is how the ladder dissects Exhibit A’s body into parts. I think this is an inspired and very clever piece of photography.

Orgasms and Wine

Black and white minimalist image of curvy woman in black underwear

I love this shot. The dark black of her underwear is in stark contrast to the white or her skin and the background but I really like about this image is the complimenting curves, there is the curve of her hip, the curve of the panties across her tummy and the curve of the bra that arches up between her breasts and finally the little series of scalloped curves across the top of her thigh. It is so simple but so beautifully done.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 182 – Maria Open’s Up

Woman naked in dark attic

Look what I found lingering back in week 182. A minimalist image! There is stunningly little detail in this image and yet what there is is incredibly powerful. We can just make out the wooden rafters and the light around Maria’s body reveals just enough to show that she is naked but the fact her face is lost in the darkness means we can only guess why, is she happy, scared, feeling powerful or powerless. Your imagination must decide.

Sinful Sunday Round-up 303

Final call, this Sunday is prompt weekend!

This week the round-up is in the hands of the wonderful @Djfet74 who will be one of our fabulous speakers at Eroticon 2017.

If you want to see some of her amazing rope work then check out her Fetlife profile and prepared to be wowed.

Djfet’s Top 5 Pics of the Week

I was delighted to be asked by Molly to do the Sinful Sunday round up. As usual the standard is extremely high making my job deliciously difficult. I had to pick five but I wanted to pick more, I wanted to put ‘highly commended’ on loads of them. I am, as always, in awe at the images and creativity of people who post on here. You fill my kinky heart with body and sex positivity.

In no particular order:

Ouizzi

Woman with long black hair snuggled up in bed

I love this image, it looks soft and warm and inviting. Very sexy and erotic.

Ellie Lou

Woman with hand in her panties

This image sum up Sinful Sunday for me. Not airbrushed or altered, real women/men, real bodies, doing real sexy stuff. Perfect.

The Monkey and the Sorts

Black and white od womans swollen genitals

This image has me mesmerised. The swollen lips, the composition, and the black and white…superb!

Steeled Snake

Sunlight on womans golden hair and fishnet clad breast

This image, for me, leaves me asking a lot of questions. Is she sad and waiting for her lover? Is she happy and fulfilled? Is she having a contemplative moment? So many different emotions in this one stunning image.

The Rebellious Angel

Woman wearing fox tail butt plug

Who does not want a fox tail butt plug? It enjoyed the less polished look of this image, it was so clear the delight of having a new toy and the tactile sensations of it swinging on her legs made me smile and chuckle because I would be running around my house wiggling my bottom if it were me.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 181 – Switchtastic

Woman in car with ripped leggins and tits showing

There is something incredibly sexy about this image. It is the combination of the ripped leggings and the boobs out but it is also because it is an in the moment shot that gives us a little look into her day when she just can’t resist being a little naughty for the sheer joy of it.
