Freeze Frame

Attempting to find a job and study for two killer finals this week... so naturally I'm browsing here in desperate attempt to avoid responsibility. Here's an observation.

Profile pics (specifically the men) - there are some good ones out there, but there are a lot that need help. Guys, do us all a favor... there's nothing wrong with a cock shot if it's shot well, if it looks sensual or sexy. But if it's just your cock hanging out there, shouting to the world, "Hello, I'm here!"... maybe it's a personal preference issue, but it just kinda makes me chuckle and move on.

Web cam shots... as a last resort, okay. But most web cam shots look like exactly that, and they usually don't make you (or ANYONE) look your best. There's just not much sexy about a face lit by the glow of the computer screen.

My advice? Get a woman to help you take a really good picture... doesn't have to be of your cock, doesn't have to be of your face, doesn't have to show a whole lot (in fact, some of the sexier ones don't "show" much of anything), just something that looks sensual and sexy, from a woman's perspective. It may not be the easiest thing in the world to find someone to take one, but it's probably worth it... and hey, if you're in my area... I DO have a decent camera...

Man I feel like the blog police today. Excellent advice - but please tell me how your pics are any different than the 'man' pics you describe here. It humors me to no end to see you call out men and be in violation of the very same rules yourself. Tits - cock, whats the difference?

If I could get a woman comfortable enough with me to take some artsy pics of me I probably wouldn't need to have an ad here would I? Also, the webcam is a much cheaper option for some of us...I bought a digital camera only just this weekend and I am eliminating my webcam pics slowly but surely - check em out tell me what you think. And give those webcam pics a chance.

Fair enough, cochise, but you see, I have the shot I do because I did NOT want to do a "crotch shot," nor am I comfortable showing my face (at least not to everyone) on a site such as this... I felt like this picture was at least fairly tasteful,a nd let's face it, still PG-13.

I'm sure the web cam IS a better option for a lot of people, and (might I add) yours is actually one of the better ones - no eerie, "Poltergeist"-like glow from the computer screen... It just never fails to amaze me how many people display pictures that do NOT portray them in the best possible way. Personally, I just didn't have a display pic at all until I had one I felt showed me off to an advantage, and I think some would be wise to do the same.

MzHunyhole, I agree wholeheartedly with the kinds of shots you like... When I said there were some good ones out there, yes, it's usually the guys who are holding it... It seems more natural to me somehow.

Sorry cochise... I have to disagree. I find Elysia's shots to be quite sexy.

This must be why they say art is in the eye of the beholder.

I suppose I will have to come to Houston so Elysia can use her photography talents on me. I wish I could have better pictures here.

Okay, I admit, cochise, you got me to take a look at my own network, and I confess there are a fair number of "cock shots" in there... although some of them, even though I accepted them into my network, I'm still not a fan of the pics... took me less than 10 minutes of surfing to identify 10 profile pics that are sexy without being in-your-face. I don't know how to actually link to them, but I will list them for anyone who wants a model...


I freely admit that most of these are either in my network or right on the main blog page, but still... very sexy without being too much...
