The fabulous Molly who created the wonderful body positive meme that is Sinful Sunday is an inspiration to me and to countless other bloggers. I have participated in the meme several times and have even made her top lists a couple of times… yay!
The ideology behind the meme is that there is beauty in everything. You don’t need to be a Victoria’s Secret model to join in. You can post a naked selfie, an abstract image, a still life composition… whatever you like, as long as it can be interpreted in terms of erotica.
I have posted photos of my favourite toys, my nylon clad legs and high heels, flirty short skirts, lingerie shots, my lips and mouth, my markings after a good session with His belt.
I always enjoy trying to come up with a new idea each week but last Sunday I had nothing to offer. I was dry! I felt people were fed up of images of my legs, mouth or toys.
I had taken a shot of my breast a few weeks back. It is a very nice image, (if I do say so myself!), artsy, subtle, black and white, not remotely porno. But I have not shared it because I am scared.
Perhaps it is because this blog is linked to my vanilla blog and my twitter and I have shown my face there. The vast majority of people who post images of their naked bodies have the good sense to not show their faces… I am not so smart it seems.
If I post my boob shot, it automatically posts to tumblr and twitter and then I face the prospect of all my friends seeing it. That weirds me out!
Why the fuss? you are probably asking. It’s only a bloody boob! Yes, people have seen my face, but they know I have breasts, so the photo wouldn’t come as a massive shock to them I imagine!
And what’s more, even without any tweaking, it actually looks pretty damn good in the photo so I shouldn’t be so daft about it.
But I am.
I guess it’s about putting yourself out there to be judged, which I know is NOT what SinfulSunday is about, but it happens. It’s about being vulnerable and real. I would post my shot with the hope of getting positive comments, but the risk of people being cruel is there. I know the whole point of SS is to be proud of what you have and not care about the judgements of others.
Maybe I’m not ready? Will I ever be?
I think Molly and my fellow bloggers would say, “You go girl! Be out and proud!”.
I wish I was braver…
