Self censorship

The lady posted this photo on her personal blog, which means it isn’t some leaked file onto the Internet.
While the ‘critical’ body parts are all covered, the photo does show a high state of nudity.

How far would you go in sharing such ‘sexy’/explicit photos of yourself on the WWW, knowing the fact your family, friends, colleagues or bosses have access to viewing them?

Some gals readily post beach outing photos in which they are clad in revealing bikinis; others are a strict no.
What’s is your bottom line to decide whether that photo can be uploaded or not?

Interesting open-air shower

The focus of my blog entry is not the gal, but the showering facilities in the background. 😛

A few years ago after our white-water rafting in Bali, the organizer brought us (me, my wife and the rest of the 10-15 participants) to a showering facility very similar in the one in above photo.

Both genders shower in the same built-up area. Though there were shower curtain for each cubicle, it doesn’t come with any latch on it, which means there was always a gap on either side no matter how well you pulled the curtain.. One has to exercise care to stand ‘strategically’, in order to prevent people walking past (outside) your cubicle, to see your naked body.

The whole place is open-air which means there isn’t any ceiling at all.

After my shower, I exited via a flight of stairs at one end of the bathing area as previously informed.
It then dawned on me that the shower area is something like a basement, and the stairs lead to an small open courtyard/field. There was no fence to prevent people from walking right to the edge of the showering cubicles and look down at the unsuspecting bathers!

Interesting architecture I must say.

This innovative concept started in Taiwan a few years back. While it is not surprisingly it didn’t become popular in the end (mainly due to Asians are predominately still conservative), the ‘almost-nude-bridal-shoot’ did raise a big hoo-haa back then.

Well, personally I won’t mind taking a few shots with my bride. In fact, my wife did jokingly brought up that time, but there wasn’t any known bridal photographer specializing in such theme in Singapore back then.. We didn’t really bother to think much about it either.

I have no issue with the photographer being male. Of course, a female photographer would be preferred for both me & my wife though I would have to worry about the prospect of my erection when I’m naked in front of the female photographer. Haha!

But the photographs would strictly be our private collection. Can’t imagine the horror on our relatives’ faces when they see these sexy photos during our wedding dinner!

So would you go for this pre-wedding photo shoot? After all, we are only young once. 🙂
