Erotic photography is a style of photography of a sexually suggestive or provocative nature. Erotic photography is generally an image of a subject in a still position and usually completely or mostly unclothed.

From time to time, I get a call from a potential client asking if we do “erotic photography.” And while I typically say “yes” that is quickly followed by a question asking what their definition of “erotic” might be be. This first brought me to the Merriam Webster definition of erotic in which they say is “of, devoted to, or tending to arouse sexual love or desire” with erotic art “strongly marked or affected by sexual desire.”

Ever since the 1960s erotic photography began to be less and less associated with the kind of cheesecake and glamour photography that was used in calendars, pinups and men’s magazines and instead was only intended to be seen only by a subject’s partner. The subjects of these new erotic photographs may be professional models, celebrities or most times just regular people—like you.

I’ll be honest and believe that a truly erotic photograph is probably edgier than the type of boudoir glamour photography that’s practiced here at Blue Moon but as the same time believe that as Jerry Seinfeld once said, “not there’s anything wrong with it.” In looking in my archives I could not find a single image that I would define as erotic. (OK, maybe this one but I’m not still sure about that. What do you think?) Instead I came up with today’s portrait which is sexy and maybe relates to the final sentence in the definition but I don’t think it’s “erotic.” You might?
