Welcome back to another weekly round-up. Before I hand over to this weeks guest I just wanted to let you know I have updated the guest poster page with links to every guest post and also a list of upcoming writers. If you are interesting in writing a guest post and have never done so then please do get in touch. If you have already written one I am currently working my way through that list so I will be in contact at some point.
Also, don’t forget to check out the May prompt!
This weeks guest is Innocent Lover Boy
ILB’s Top 5 Pics of the Week
While I haven’t taken part in the meme myself for a while – body image is a bit of a sore point for me at the moment – I will gladly applaud the persistence and bravery in those who do take part; not just my top five, but all those who participate!
This one gets the top spot because it combines two of my very favourite things: full-body nudity… and guitars. I love the pose here, the way Justin angles himself in the shot, and his guitar, which looks a little more awesome than mine is. I’m a little jealous. For a number of reasons.
Writing the NSFW
I’ve always been a fan of the “slightly innocent” look (shock revelation there, I know) and this is a brilliant take on it, full of sexuality without any nudity. This photo is a witty tease, and it’s actually what you can’t see that makes this photo for me – although what you can isn’t bad either!
One of the things that I like about Sinful Sunday is how differently people take it, and this is a great way of showing off the body without taking off your clothes. Like Zoë, I was taken by the brilliance of this picture, the curves and contours of the model brilliantly contrasted in stark black and white.
This is really clever – not something I’d find sexy, as such, but inventive and even a little threatening. I love original photography.
And we may as well finish off with another guitar. I’ve always found the bass to be the sexiest musical instrument: a low thrum underpinning the trebles of the rest of the music, and the dexterity of bass players’ fingers is certainly something to be envied. This picture captures all of that, and with the beard and just a hint of chest, it seems wistful, bringing to mind warm summer evenings on the porch with love in your heart.
Blast from the Past
I find this a seriously hot image. At first glance all you see is the beautiful head of his erect penis but when you look beyond that you realise there is a lot more going on.
