Erotic Photo Shoot


If you have (or can borrow) a digital or video even Hi Def camera at your fingertips, especially if your Smart Phone is a low res item, why not schedule an erotic photo shoot for yourself (solo poses) or you and your lover? Yes, using candid photography can capture your erotic side and enhance your pleasure.

I once worked with a couple whose sex life had gone South. She was overly inhibited and he was resorting to girlie mags. Instead of pushing her into sex, we encouraged her to open up in an unusual way. Her husband booked a session with a great photographer who specialized in safe, tasteful and creative photo shoots of women, men or couples. This session did something magical for her. She found her siren self, which definitely emerged onto the glossy photo paper by the time she had completed her hour in the studio. When they showed me some of the photos in our next sex coaching session, and were glowing with their joy and reunion in bed, I knew this was the right approach.

You don’t need a pro to do this at home. In fact, in the comfort of your own boudoir, you can access some of your fave outfits, feel less embarrassed than in front of a stranger (unless that really turns you on), and take all the time you want. I suggest that you set this up like a “real” session, with a specific time, place in your home, and costumes, make-up, hair all arranged for in advance. You’ll be glad you did. Why not make this Fourth of July the most erotic ever, and save the memories on your computer for dreamy summer nights to come??
