Just started chatting with someone new and interesting? Perhaps you are in a long distance relationship and want to keep the connection going. Whatever be the case, in this age of Tinder, Whatsapp, and Snapchat, chances are you are going to field requests, from the man or the woman of the moment, to share a sexy selfie of yourself. So here is a quick guide to taking pictures that will have the person at the other end hoping for a whole lot more…
Stay Calm and Selfie On: Though we live in a visual world it can be a little intimidating to start taking pictures of yourself that are suggestive yet sexy and tasteful. Once you start posing you may feel self conscious, vain or uncomfortable. But take a long relaxing shower, put on your favorite tune and get started!
Safety Before Selfie: One way to make your adventure less stressful is to only share pictures you are proud of and would be (theoretically) okay with uncleji, bhabi, akka, and your bff from college seeing. Never feel pressured to step outside your comfort zone or send pictures to people you don’t completely trust. And even if you are sharing pictures with a long term partner, you may want to consider the unintended consequences of smartphones getting lost, snapchats being saved as a screenshot, and scandalous pictures ending up on the Internet! At the risk of sounding very 1997, we think it is a smarter idea to always leave out your face or other identifiable markers like tattoos when you are sharing seriously eyebrow-raising photos.
Less is More: Sexy selfies always leave something to the imagination. A flash of bare thighs, the mere suggestion of cleavage, a picture of just your legs with some high heels, a strap sliding down a cheekily bared shoulder, a hint of lace, and droplets of water on your skin that will make him think of the hottest Bollywood rain song ever, can all go a long way in turning up the temperature without being too out there.
Be Playful: Jillian Paulson swears by her never fail trick of sending a quick picture of just the top of whatever underwear she is wearing on the day and says dudes seem to love getting a peek at her navel ring and some lace-topped panties! You could also have fun with a suggestive picture of you licking a lollipop, an ice gola or an ice cube, or get playful, sliding off the bed wearing your boyfriend’s white shirt and an innocent expression to get the games started. But if those options seem too in your face, you could just stick with flattering pictures of you blowing a kiss or experiment with cool instagram filters, to enhance makeup, and use the 1977 filter to give your now-standard pouty, OTT selfie an exaggerated retro feel.
Other cool camera hacks: It takes a little bit of practice to pose like a pro but the key thing to remember is: Tilt your head, angle your body. Pictures shot with you looking dead straight at the camera or arms akimbo are just not going to look sexy. Hold your phone at the shoulder level and twist your hips towards the camera, while bringing the opposite shoulder towards the camera, slightly, and if that sounds more complicated than bhujangasana here is a picture to sort it all out! Lighting is everything when it comes to taking sexy pictures. Shoot pictures in the early morning or at twilight and use sources like big open windows to make the most of your pictures.
For the Men: If the men are wondering how they can participate in all this sexy selfie madness, boys take heart! You can do a lot to pique the other’s person interest without sending an unsolicited picture of your junk! Maybe you want to try unbuttoning a few buttons on that shirt of yours with the tie askew. A lot of women are likely to find that just-home-from-work-after-a-long-day look very hot, and it is not a R rated picture that is likely to boomerang on you. What about putting on an apron and take a picture of you cooking up a storm? Maybe it will get her thinking about the morning after…and if you are feeling confident and reckless go with the sexy stubble and the fresh out of the shower in a towel look.
