Why are couples today seeking erotic photoshoots?
For each couple, there will be a different reason, as everyone’s relationship is unique. Just as couples want their wedding day photographed and photos were taken of their newborn baby, many couples also want to see the special moments in their sex life celebrated with photos, from when they first meet and are in the utterly obsessed with each other’s bodies phase to the long term when they need to spice up their flagging sex lives and give themselves a confidence boost. Sometimes, one of the couples may wish to give their partner a special present that they wouldn’t expect.
Others wish to explore their inner fetish being photographed in new locations with another person present behind the lens. It can be both empowering and a real turn on! Seeing you and your partner in this way can reignite the feelings of passion you originally had for each other and take your sex life to the next level. Sex/intimacy is an important part of every relationship and a part that people often do not take the time and energy to explore and express. Seeing ourselves as a sexual couple in a photograph gives you something concrete to look back on as a reminder of how good you can be together when times get tough!
On a personal level, it is not something I have ever come across or explored for myself.
This is probably due to my typical British upbringing. When I was young, anything to do with sex was really not talked about. Sex was and still is largely a taboo subject depending on your audience, to be kept under wraps, something dirty and only to partake when you are married if you are a nice girl! Messages like that have a habit of getting ingrained, a mental block which sticks even when you are old enough to be forming your own opinion, that feeling that you really shouldn’t admit to anything of a sexual nature never leaves you.
I didn’t realise that erotic photography is so popular, who are these people and where are they. They are your neighbours, the postman, the lady that cuts your hair, they are sitting next to you on the bus, standing behind you in the shop queue and sitting on the next table in a restaurant and you don’t have a clue! I envy their sexual freedom.
Everyone has sexual fantasies, after all, sex is in the mind, a powerful tool. Some people fantasise about having sex outside in the open, others find the thought of being watched a thrill. Different sexual scenarios with bodies of different shapes and sizes are found titillating. How many people share their fantasies and how much more take them to their grave. Erotic photography is a way of finding out what excites you and your partner, capturing those visions.
