Looking at dirty pictures

I don't use other photographers' work or copy other painters but sometimes when I'm working I think I need to change something, it's usually a facial expression or maybe the hands aren't quite right. At those times I put in an image search and I get lost for hours. It's something I tend to do really early in the morning. And I never keep to my brief. One erotic photography site leads to another, sex blogs, sites for women, sites for men, adult forums.

Sometimes I see things I wish I hadn't. I'm amazed the spectrum of sexual preferences out there. How UN"erotic" are some of the things which turn people on. We're a truly astonishing species. I'd love to elaborate- but I'll spare you the details...


  1. Your post made me smile and nod in agreement

    I adore erotic but dislike pornography. If that makes sense.

  2. Thanks- it really does! I did actually describe what I had going on in my head but then I thought- everyone is going to have seen something which perplexed them but is somebody else's ultimate turn on. It causes me many a wide-eyed moment ;)
