“I’m a freakin’ genius. I have a brilliant business idea,” I declared one night.
“Guys like porn…”
“You want in on the porn industry?”
Ohmigosh, shutup and listen. “Nooo, but what if, instead of looking at plastic strangers who would never give you the time of day, you were looking at your wife?”
“So I’d look at pictures of you? Um, how is this not going into porn?”
“Boudoir photography, Mark! A photographer takes sexy photos of a lady so that she can give her person something tasty to feast his eyes on. I’ve been searching for photographers here in Nashville that do this, and no one does it! Can you believe it? This is a market just waiting to get tapped!”
I had visions of hosting something similar to a Passion Party just with pictures. A group of ladies could get together at a hotel room, drink tipsy-inducing beverages, and have a great night flirting with the camera. And so that I could be involved, I’d give therapist tips on sex and intimacy.
Unfortunately, I’m not a photographer and couldn’t make the dream a reality on my own. I emailed some female photographers and pitched my idea. I’m not sure what part of “take pictures of scantily clad women” scared them off, but no one bit. No one even responded. The dream was dead.
The good news is that I regularly read www.AshleysBrideGuide.com, even though I’m not planning a wedding (because it is that awesome). And wouldn’t you know that yesterday she introduced us to Boudoir Photography in Nashville? That’s right, my dream is alive and kicking thanks to Dove Wedding Photography, who is hosting one of these photo sessions, a Sweets Event, on January 24th and 25th where ladies will get an hour long photoshoot, champagne, and their makeup done by a profession makeup artist. All they are missing is the therapist with tips on amazing foreplay…
I honestly can’t think of a better present for the man in your life. You may not think it’s that big of a deal that you literally live in your sweats. Or that you rarely initiate sex with a seductive crawl across the bed. Or that your hair is often mistaken for a bird’s nest. But it matters to your man because men are visual. That was important, I’ll repeat. Men are visual.
This Hump Day give him something to look at… then take a picture!
