“…for some people, nude photography has the power to make them much more accepting of the way they look.”
That is what Charlie over at SexBlogOfSorts wrote about realising in her first Sinful Sunday post and this made her decided to give it a go, I hope it did make her much more accepting of her amazing body.
I was very inspired by her post because I have had body confidence issues for quite a long time now, I have written about them here , over the past 2 years these feeling seem to have been getting worse.
However after reading Charlie’s post and looking at all the wonderful Sinful Sunday pictures every week has made me wonder what am I so ashamed of? Everyone’s body is different and that makes them beautiful. My view of an attractive “perfect” body is completely different to everyone else’s. I may never have the perkiest breasts, the flattest stomach or the longest legs but this is the body I was born with and I should be proud of it!
When Exhibit A decided to offer up his Sinful Sunday spot once a month to people who wanted to remain anonymous for what ever reason, I considered it for a while then decided that it was something I wanted to do, you can see the original post here I have taken part in the anonymous Sinful Sunday twice now. I admitted on twitter that i had taken part but never actually said which picture was mine.
So in view of helping my body confidence issues and to try and encourage more of a healthy body image mentality, I have decided to come clean and own up to which picture is me.
So here it is and what I wrote to go with it.
You left for work hours ago and I’m still where you left me. My bed, the scene of last nights fucking. I can smell you on my sheets, on my skin, it’s intoxicating.
I can’t help but smile and run my hand down my body, following the same trail your tongue did last night, my hand ending at my aching pussy. After you’ve gone I think about how you made me feel last night, I cant wait till you return.
Now you’ve seen it you might wonder what I was so ashamed of and why I was nervous about admitting to it, it’s just a bit of boob and leg, right?
It is still putting myself out there, stripped bare and vulnerable.
I don’t actually have a major problem with either of these parts of my body, especially my breasts, I might want them to be perkier but they have been called the best breasts in the world before. My main issue is my stomach and as you can see I covered it in this picture, in the other picture I submitted my stomach is on show as is a whole lot more of me. I’ll be honest I’m not ready to put that picture on here yet but as I’m trying to be more confident you can view it here and you will most likely be able to guess which one is me.
*This probably doesn’t count as a proper entry because it has been used before. Also I know there is a lot of writing but this post is essentially ALL about the image.
