How to take sexy pictures of yourself
June 17, 2007
Pictures are a rather crucial part to happy long-distance relationship. Sure, you should send pictures of things you do, your friends, your apartment, and other non-you stuff, but you should also send pictures of yourself. You know, to remind her of what you look like.
(There are usually trust issues with sending potentially-career-threatening pictures of yourself over the Internet. If you have those trust issues then you’re wasting everyone’s time by being in a relationship. Seriously, cut it out.)
Crowds is rather vain and, as such, had been sending me provocative, sexy pictures for some time. I had never reciprocated, partially because I didn’t know how to take a provocative, sexy picture of myself. So I asked her how a man can be sexy.
At first she had no idea. “Guys don’t relaly have anything to work with, except being attractive,” she explained. Then she gave suggestions. These are very her-specific (and perhaps me-specific), but it’s a good base:
- Boxer-briefs are sexier than boxers.
- Pants are unsexy.
- Let your hair down (I have long hair).
- If nude, have an erection.
- Don’t throw a “sexy face“.
