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…

Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt June 2015

The prompt for JUNE 2015 is: Colour Filter

The idea for this prompt came after I saw this Sinful Sunday image Well Re(a)d by Cheeky Minx. It got me thinking how, by adding a colour filter to an image you can really change the mood of an picture. Reds will often add a sultry or hot feel to an image whereas blue tends to cool things down but what of yellow or green or purple or pink?

Your task this month is to add a colour filter to your image. This can be done in camera by purchasing colour filters to put on your len but in this day and age of digital photography that is not really needed anymore as nearly every photo editing package has some sort of colour filtering option. If you wish to also post the original image without the colour filter please do. This worked very successfully when we did a similar thing with the black and white prompt and really got people discussing what they liked about the different edits but, as always, it is totally up to you.

Here are some examples of colour filter images to give you some ideas

Scarlet Luminescence and Beneath Innocence by Love Hate Sex Cake

The Perfect Girl by Molly

Just Looking by Molly

The prompt is published here on the site mid month, which will give people approximately 2 weeks to work on their idea before linking in, on the 1st weekend of the month. The prompt is completely optional and you can link in as normal on that weekend whether you have used the prompt or not. The usual Sinful Sunday rules will, of course, apply. Please make sure you have read them recently so that you are fully aware of what is and is not allowed.

As always interpret as you wish, or disregard altogether and do you own thing.

Have your post ready to go for Sunday 7th June 2015. Any questions or queries can be posted in the comments below, you can email me [email protected] or tweet me @mollysdailykiss


Sinful Sunday Weekly Round-up 212

Before I move onto the round-up I have a question for you all. 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…

Yes again another prompt weekend has inspired a whole host of truly wonderful images from which I have to pick just 5. Sometimes I wonder why I made the rules for the round-up the way I did but I also think it keeps the round-up fresh and interesting each week.

Top 5 pics of the week

Modesty Ablaze

Green dildo

Way more than just another photograph of a sex toy. This one is dark and moody and certainly gives the toy a rather haunting, spooky quality that is highlighted by the green tones and large imposing shadows. A very simple image but it totally works.

Beck and her Kinks

Bathroom scene of discarded clothes and suction dildo

I will admit to missing the full story to this picture the first time I saw it but then my browser crashed and so I had to start over and when I did I suddenly realised that there was more to this image than a discarded little pile of clothes because if you let your eyes trail back into the image you will on the wall, the rest of the story.

Let’s Skip the Pleasantries, Shall We?

Contents on a womans handbag

What’s in your handbag? Always an interesting question in my opinion and my answer can range from panties and lipstick to chewing gum and shopping lists. I love this image for its simplicity coupled with its sheer suggestiveness. Here is a sexually confident woman who knows what she wants to get from her evening. Now that is sexy.

Frisky in the 916

Reminants of dinner with condom wrapperThis is such a clever composition, an image that tells you a complete story. Dinner for two, takeout, a bottle of wine to share. Intimate, relaxing, and fun , two people sharing an evening. The remains on the table indicate quite clearly what happened next.

The (erotic) Ponderings of Velvet Rose

Black and pink bra discarded on bed

I think this image is beautifully crafted. It has a really strong focal point to draw the eye in but enough detail in the background to suggest a ‘story’. it is one of those images that makes me feel like just out of frame there is a lot more going on than we are being allowed to see.

Blast from the Past

Sinful Sunday Week 93Whole Sex Life

Sexy librarian

There is a whole series sexy librarian images in this post but I love how this one focus’ on shape, patterns and form. From the narrowing of her waist to the curve of hips it is just beautiful and fishnets are always sexy but torn fishnets, don’t ask me why, but I just find that super sexy.
