Have you ever had "boudoir" photos taken?

An amateur photographer friend of mine offered to take a series of photos of me including head shots and erotic nude shots. He's been doing this for a while and his work is really good.

He said they'd look better than the selfies I usually have posted of myself.

When I want to hook up I just use some of the stills from my porn movies, or some of my publicity shots from them.


Also, unless you're a fat heifer names Ginger or a fey and winsome fellow named Crispin, "boudoir" is not a term that properly applies to a male issuing sexual-enticement pics.

And if you're posting from the barn in a bovine stance, please go away.

Is his name Denny Scott?

You'll get a much better shot of your haunches and eager hole if someone else takes the photo.

That 'reaching back like I'm about to wipe my ass' look has been done to death on Craigslist.

What are you, some kind of hooker?

Perhaps he's trying to help you create memories.

I've met a few guys who've shown me photos of their younger selves.

They get so maudlin.

I had a guy show me his ridiculous "Glamour Shots" photos (you know, from the shop at the mall?) when he was young, wearing makeup and air-brushed to death.

He was in love with himself and expected me to comment on each of the 100 photos. I couldn't believe it. I RAN out of there!

I'm not some kind of hooker, no.

I'm 45 and have had kind of a rough year with two deaths in the family. I've withdrawn a bit from socializing and haven't been laid in ages. My friend thinks this photo session and the resulting pics will make me feel better. He says he'll make me look great and it'll make me feel better about myself.

Like I said, I've seen his work and he really does a good job of making his less than perfect subjects look great.

I'm not shy about being nude but the erotic part might be a little awkward with a friend taking the pics. Me with an erection, in sexual poses, etc. He said we'd have a couple of drinks first and it'll be fine. Fun, even.

You're right; two deaths entitle you to hooker photos with good lighting that downplays your chins.

That's exactly what I thought too.

I am genuinely sorry about the deaths, OP, but they do not entitle you to our approval about these stupid photos.

Oh, do it Rose! Miles will love them!

I looked through an old Denny Scott thread and tried to find some of his work to dissuade the OP, but I couldn't find any. If anything were to stop the OP cold in his tracks, it would be a sampling of Scott's "boudoir" photography.

I'm familiar with Denny Scott and the kind of thing you're talking about R2. But this isn't like that. My friend's photos are tasteful and well-done. They're not tacky.

Unless you consider naked men tacky, in which case nothing I say will convince you otherwise.

[quote]I'm 45

Then the question is: are you in great shape? Is your torso v-shaped or are you more square or pear shaped? Do you have leftover tan lines from the summer? Do you wear unfortunate jewelry? Is your hair "of the moment" or is it more conservatively styled?

Your photos can be classical, if you maintain a more conservative appearance.

Or you could end up looking like David Hasselhoff. or Michael Musto - who photographed beautifully, but does not have the body shape for nude photos.

Where exactly do you intend to post these photos? Your Facebook page?

by Anonymousreply 1610/30/2013

OP, why did you post this? Everyone is telling you not to do this, and you just get angry and argue or feel sorry for yourself. If you are just going to go ahead and do it no matter what, why even announce it?
