Quick reminder that the prompt for the 1st Sunday in June is now out; Sinful Sunday Monthly Prompt June 2015 . Also, I currently have the guest list for the round-up full, up until August, but I am always looking for new people who have not previously written one. So if that is you please do get in touch.
This week I am welcoming erotic author Jodie Griffin to the Sinful Sunday round-up
Jodie’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
As an erotic romance author, I spend a lot of time using words to create a picture. But when I’m writing, I do often see a scene or a sexual act as a hazy kind of image, blurry around the edges, and I use that to help me describe what my characters are doing. In a similar way, I’ll often see a photograph that will immediately give me a story idea. It could be as simple as a cup of coffee, a rustic cabin, or a sensual image that makes me stop and think “Oh, wow.” I’m honored Molly asked me to choose five of my favorite images from this week. This was much harder a task than I thought it would be – they are all amazing.
Here are the photographs that really spoke to me, the ones that made me see stories:
I love black and white photos, and I love the pretty outline of her body. I also love the in-the-shadows exhibitionism of this photograph. It’s dark outside, so maybe no one will see…or maybe they will.
There’s a lot I love about this picture. The purple rope. The way he’s watching her carefully and touching her gently. And I love the fact that you can see his wedding band. There’s something incredibly sexy about married kink.
This is a gorgeous, incredibly sexy image of an imperfect, non-airbrushed body. We’re forever bombarded with images of (usually far too) thin bodies, but rarely do we see voluptuous women in erotic poses. I love this one.
This is a photograph that gives me all kinds of story ideas (or plot bunnies, as we call them.) Why are his trousers already open? Is he offering her the collar for the first time? What will she say? I love images like this that leave it up to my imagination to decide what’s going on.
This photograph reminds me that there is a wide variety and range to kink. For some, this would be warm-up play. For others, edge-play. The criss-crossed cane marks and goosebumps make me think of submission, shivery goodness and floaty headspace.
