OP said: "...my wife gave me permission to do so, after begging of course by me".
RED FLAG #1.
(Oh, and I never called anyone in particular stupid or ignorant. I said (or meant) the decision to allow such stupid and ignorant and I gave solid supporting reasons why I view a decision by women as such: either stupid or ignorant.) I used stupid for those who haven't a brain and ignorant for those who haven't the experience to know any better.
Maybe I should have also added: 'unable to hold up one's inner intuition/own good judgement to the begging of said spouse...." ?
Clearly a wife had some trepidation about ALLOWING posting the erotic photos (is what I am pointing out).
All that glitters in Hollywood is clearly not gold.
"she is comfortable in her own skin, sorry that you are not".
You are making an assumption that because one has a boundary it is because they are not comfortable in their own skin. I don't know about Amber, but I could have been Playmate of Sept 1978, 1988, 1998 and you would not know!
(No it was not Sept 1978....)
Was once a model, GA...and not for Biker and Tractor mags.
No offense to the girls doing Biker and Tractor mags....don't flame me!
Sandy hey look I am not going to get into tit for tat here, I like you youre a very nice person. This thread was not designed to start abeling people or place personal insults, etc.
The thing I find amazing on this board is that people are looking for "something to blame" and excuse, a problem, something wrong.
Why do people need to disect other peoples relationships, to make them feel better about their own? or to justify a end to theirs? I dunno.
I try an lighten the mood on this board with some silly things and some off the wall stuff.
I can't fix everything but if I can break a few smiles it is worth it.
People have to work with in their own relationship, figure out what is best for them. I am sure you area georgous woman still, even from your "modeling days" you may feel you are past it, I am sure you are more attractive now then in the past.
As I said, I met my wife when she was 19, she is 38 now, I think she is better looking now then she was back then, some of it is her confidence she hasin her own abilities.
I am very happy to have such a lovely woman to be my wife, I am actually darn lucky.
I hope you can find what you are looking for in life.
I am not sure my heart can take much more of this thread...it's working too much to pump the extra blood...
Was not a Playmate JD. Put your heart to rest. Definitely talking smack on that one!
My dh does GREAT photography, and used me as a model for years and did take some rather "suggestive" (and beautiful) stuff he wanted to send away to PB. Back then I thought he had lost his mind! I look at them NOW, 20 years later and say, "I should have, I could have paid for medical school...."! I am very proud of them, because I never KNEW I looked good because of things stemming from my childhood sexual abuse, that sort of tends to make one have very low self image in many ways - all that psycho-babble stuff they say about protracted sexual abuse is true and it took some very hard work and many years to realign the old self image.
But I did do runway modeling...mostly evening attire and wedding dresses (was 4 months pregnant and modeling these huge beautiful wedding dresses! LOL). Also did a couple of commercials (I was taking DS 23, he was 3 at the time, for an audition, and they asked ME to work for them instead of DS! LOL; I wasn't even looking for a job at the time! LOL. Note: Don't do film work, it is extremely boring and time consuming. I don't know how actors do it day in and day out!!)
I could never put suggestive photos on the net or out for men to see. My stepfather abused me for 8+ years, he had stacks and stacks of porn, of all sorts...and I know it was part and parcel of his very sick mind.
I would have to think hard about it, but I have a couple photos I could post, they are not extremely suggestive, though, but rather good...dh does good stuff. Gotta give him that. He is good at the technical in photogs, I am good at the composition. Makes a good team.
I used to take pix...for almost 20 years...most of them sports related but there was the occasional stripper, wife or GF of a friend or just a stoned and drunk groupie...or all of the above. I was a damn good photographer...
Never once did I feel like I was exploiting the women nor did they feel that way. It was just fun...a time to let go and just hang out, literally and figuratively. I did one shoot in a gym in Tampa that had me begging...um, NM, not important.
Anyway...stuff like this isn't for everyone. And it's all about the comfort level of the persons involved. If you don't like it and don't want to or would never do it...then fine, don't.
I just don't like others telling me that it's wrong...only one place to be judged in this world...
Just want to back up in this thread and say that I rallied against Adam because of that ghastly high note he ended every song with!!!

Sometimes I feel we are slipping back to medieval times where we destroyed countless information because people were afraid of something different and new.
Or the salem Witch trials, accuse accuse and fear what they can not understand.
Anyway to the ladies that voiced their displeasure with my post. That is fine I understand, it is not for you, I expect it is not for 90% of the women out there, which is perfectly fine.
It doesn't effect you or your life, but you should learn to respect other people's lives and how they wish to live, instead of casting stones.
Sorry this evolved to a P match, I don't mind the "not for me" but please don't put my wife down bedcause she found it aurousing and a sexual turn on for her, she is comfortable in her own skin, sorry that you are not.
