When the Polaroid camera was introduced several decades ago, many creative couples saw an erotic advantage to this innovation. This camera offered these couples the opportunity to capture sensual and sexual images without the risk involved in sending film off to be developed. With the sending off of film, the wait for the couple was bad enough, but there was also the fear of having their naked pictures confiscated. All too often, the only result of their creative efforts would be a brief printed notice stating, "Your film contained what appears to be explicit material and is being returned undeveloped."
The revolutionary Polaroid process, and the advances in that technology, allowed couples to take photographs in private and to view them almost immediately. In fact, the anticipation would grow as the photographic image slowly emerged, sharpened and darkened. Photo sessions could be planned or might occur spontaneously. Polaroid photos could be snapped candidly ... often to the embarrassment (or anger) of the unsuspecting subject. Pictures could be destroyed, saved, mailed to a distant lover and, with the recent availability of scanners, e-mailed to a cyber pal. Scanned Polaroid snapshots of naked amateurs can now be posted on the internet ... hopefully (and ethically) with the permission of all involved!
Video cameras also found their place in the bedrooms of creative individuals and couples. While having the advantage of movement and sound, video tapes were more difficult to hide from the kids!. However, thousands of erotic home videos are no doubt being made or viewed every night of the week. Web cams add new possibilities for sharing even live action over the internet.
Perhaps the most exciting addition to the arsenal of amateur photographers is the digital camera. The digital camera has the advantage of immediate results, but also offers a crispness of the photos that far exceeds that of the Polaroid. In addition, digital images can, with relative ease, be printed, viewed on the monitor screen of a home computer, e-mailed, or posted on an adult site. Even with the most basic photo program on a home computer, digital images can be cropped and creatively manipulated.
Ever since it became possible for images to be captured, photographers, professional and otherwise, have been photographing the form of the nude body. Some photos are artistic, others explicit. Some are sensual, some blatantly sexual. All such images are a statement that the human body, male and female, is aesthetically beautiful and inherently attractive. Photographers satisfy the natural curiosity to view that which is so often covered, and their subjects through their nudity protest societal secrecy, openly displaying pride in their natural beauty.
There will always be the debate around the questions of art or pornography ... if indeed there is a line that separates them, and if there is, where, and who has the right to draw it? When it comes to photographing nudity or capturing the image of raw sexual behavior, there are small, but vocal, advocate groups on either end of the perpetual debate over what is art and what is smut. However, in writing about creative sexual expression, and while endorsing erotic and sensual behavior between consenting adults, it is impossible to ignore the potential offered by the camera. Digital technology has made it possible for creative couples to capture and preserve that which they find exciting, and this offers endless opportunities to reminisce about joys shared and talk of pleasures yet to come.
Consider the possibilities of a camera, a small prop, and a beautiful body.
