On the Lighter Side: Goofy Glamour & Giggle-Gasms

I recently enjoyed a brief exchange with the legendary Playboy photographer Byron Newman.  He shared a fabulously sexy, whimsical image and a discussion ensued about the overwrought gravitas of much glamour photography ... we agreed that many artists have taken themselves too seriously and the FUN of sexuality has been lost.   In my less than humble opinion, laughter is sexy as hell ... and if you aren't laughing in bed and on set, you are doing it all wrong!  

Fortunately, I work with people who are as brilliantly funny as they are talented.   Last weekend I enjoyed an erotic shoot with Miz B Havin' Model Adam.   As we worked through our shot list, we arrived at the topic of phone sex.   I was throwing around some ideas on image concepts for this theme, when Adam struck upon the most hilarious idea - which we managed to execute in between bouts of the giggles!  I think it's a fun, sexy take on our modern obsession with technology and our subsequent disconnect from actual personal interaction.   Hopefully, the images from this series will stimulate your funny bones and tickle your fancies ... welcome to Phone Sex a la 2013!



































I often joke around that posing with all these yummy models is hard work, but somebody has got to do it.  For once, this actually was very hard to shoot because we had to remember to completely ignore each other lol.  There were probably 10 shots like the last one here for every single shot in which we managed to keep a straight face!  Sometimes, dear readers, there is nothing sexier than being silly, getting naked, and having a good laugh with your partner ... so put down your phone, log off your laptop, and lighten up!

  1. This is a funny set, but it reflects a truly disturbing aspect of life today. People no longer appreciate where they are and whom they are with. When I'm in a restaurant and see a couple, each of whom is staring into a damned phone instead of interacting with each other, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Just a few hours ago, I was walking along a truly gorgeous stretch of the Atlantic Ocean. One guy on a bike passed me and was gabbing on his phone. Another woman was staring into her phone while her companion was photographing the sea. I don't get it, I really don't. Live your life. Don't experience it second handedly.

    1. Absolutely agree, Derek! I'm completely convinced that a shockingly high percentage of people (especially the younger generation who've never lived without the omnipresence of cell phones) find the humor here slightly uncomfortable simply because they've done this exact thing at some point! I can neither confirm nor deny that I have personally found doggie to be particularly accomodating to answering emails, but I know for a fact that in that moment it should occur to a rational person that perhaps one event or the other just doesn't really need to be happening! :-p

  2. Am I weighing in too quick??? Lol just trying to be cool
    I love this topic! What an amazing shoot and context sex at its most enjoyable is free of hubris poses or ' do I look cool in this pose'
    It is sweaty, filled with funny faces and passion...and when our bodies make a funny noise we should enjoy the humour of that

    Efukt.com used to have a fun collection of porn bloopers, not the same but shows the humor and humanity in all of this business ;)

    1. LOL Dave, you are never going to let me live down that sarcastic comment about being a lil frightened of the people who respond to my every post within .5 nanoseconds, are you?! :-p Completely concur ... if you are able to worry about how you look during sex, you are having entirely the wrong kind of sex!

    1. Hmmmm .... now you've put a whole new spin on this :-) I think I'll spend some time going through the archives pulling out photos where I was unable to maintain my bearing lol ... I'm pretty sure there is a 2 to 1 ratio of cracking up vs sexy vamping on most of our sets! :-D

  4. Nothing is as sexy as vulnerability and reality. The glimpse in the soul is worth 10000 words
