Heard of boudoir photos? Likely from a straight friend or while browsing any photographer’s websites in the last couple years. Boudoir photos are the latest photography craze. Originally, I thought this phenomenon was just straight girls making homemade pin-able porn to gift their hubbies on their wedding days. But turns out, women are taking it off for more than just the wedding gifts. They are stripping down to celebrate their weight loss, desirability, new singlehood, post baby bods, their 30s, 40s, or just being in a great place.
Why are we not getting in on this hard people? Where. The. EFF. My. Queers. At? With all the body, sexuality, and gender shaming we deal with on the daily, this could be a crazy powerful tool to celebrate ourselves and get stronger in our self love. Also, imagine how rad-ly normalizing it would be for everyone, queers, and straights alike to see more diversity of desirability? Imagine scrolling through an IG feed that had queer sexuality celebrated in the mix. It would change the world. Change. The. World. There would be fresh water for everyone. Global warming would spontaneously reverse, and Oprah would be president.
So come with me on a ride to the future.
The only thing that comes to mind here are the words “Amber Alert”!
So what did you think? Don’t worry; there are cold showers in the future.
See you there hotties!
