Erotic Photography and Photoshop : It's a Privilege, Not a Right

Ah, technology. The cause of—and solution to—all of photography's problems. When I use the term 'Photoshop,' I use it in the generic sense of the word to mean any and all photo editing software. Kind of like the photographic equivalent of a Q-Tip or Band-Aid; no one ever says 'cotton swab' or 'flexible adhesive bandage strip'.

Making Erotica Fit: Eden Baylee

“I’ve always loved to read, and words have been a great source of entertainment for me since I could remember,” reveals Eden Baylee, author of the erotica collection Fall into Winter. “To this day, I’m fascinated by wordplay and the nuances of language, especially the English language. When I read Story of O at the age of eleven, I got completely lost in a whole new vocabulary. You could say that it left an indelible mark on my psyche.”

Ooooooooh, Canada!

We definitely have a glow in our hearts, we Canadians. On this day to celebrate our nation, let’s take a look back at some of the significant moments in our sexual history. It hasn’t been a well-lubed existence, there have been some flaccid moments along the way. And some significant legal cock-blocking still inhibits our sexual rights.

“We've definitely had people challenge us about some of our lyrics,” relates Sarah Creagen of Toronto’s The Sex Appeal. “But, we view that as a good thing! It's always better to have an open dialogue. And, it's good for us, I think, to be forced to take our music seriously enough to self criticize and to accept all forms of feedback!

View From The Top: The Things You Do For Sex

I was scanning through the news recently, preparing for my radio show, when a headline caught my eye. It read, “On the Beltway, a claim of drunken sex at 85 mph.” I was shocked that anyone could slap bodies together in passion that least without worrying about trauma.

Less is More: Backgrounds in Erotic Photography

Some of the best ways to ensure a great photo are also the easiest. Case in point: backgrounds. Few other aspects will completely change a photo from amazing to awful faster than a bad background. This one, however, has a very simple fix.

Tied to Beautiful Images: David Lawrence's Rope Bondage Photography

“Japanese inspired rope bondage is a beautiful expression of raw sexual energy with coarse rope on the soft sensual flesh of a women,” reveals photographer David Lawrence. “That is what the appeal is to me. A woman who surrenders to the rope and the energy that she exudes is intoxicating. Very beautiful. There is an intense beauty and in some cases a raw sexual energy that, when captured on film, is inspiring.”

The Why of It—Erotic Photography

Taking a really great dirty picture can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. With today's technology, capturing a risqué photo can be as involved as shooting on location with super fancy lenses and big budget lighting or as unfussy as simply pushing a button. Whether you are snapping photos with your point and shoot, DSLR or webcam there are a few constants that add up to make a really spectacular photo. Technical know-how doesn't always ensure a great picture.
